WIN! Bajo & Junglist's Good Game Book

COV_GoodGameGuide.inddStuck for a Christmas present for your significant gaming other? Or maybe just yourself? Why not try winning one of the twenty copies of Good Game's Gamers Guide to Good Gaming we have here to give away?

Yep, that's right, the Good Game guys have released their own book. Written by Bajo, Junglist and others (I believe it even has my name in there somewhere), it promises to deliver all you need to know to be a gamer in Australia.

There are chapters on: the major game developers who have shaped our medium; the games you should play before you die; videogame history; videogame future!; and tips on improving your gaming experience.

Thanks to HarperCollins and the ABC, we have twenty copies to give away throughout today, tomorrow and Friday. All you need to do to be in the running to win is tell us, in the comments below, who would win a "celebrity deathmatch" between Good Game hosts (past, present and furry yellow monkeys), and why. As usual for a Kotaku competition, the most inspired, creative and witty entries will win.

Only one entry per person. Just leave your entry here at any point between now and 11:59pm Friday. We'll pick the twenty best and send you a book.

UPDATE: This competition is now closed. Stay tuned for the winners to be announced.

    Leet gaming skills don't often translate too well to real world applications - in this circumstance, I'm guessing the fight would involve lots of frantic arm flailing and slapping ending only when someone unluckily falls over, knocking themselves out, leaving the the other contender winner by default. The general lack of fighting skills of all persons gives each contender just as much of a chance as the other. Watch your step....

    Hex: Have you seen the way she looks at the camera when Bajo is talking. With that little smirk of her's that I'm 90% sure means "I can kill you with my brain".

    Bajo would win and here is why.

    Bajo is actually a robot!, designed by the medical industry, his original purpose was to go to medical conferences convincing doctors to buy medications for tourette's syndrome and Parkinson’s. Sadly he wasn’t built as a reviewing robot (come to think of it that explains some things). At a young age he had a barrel dropped on his head, this made Bajo love gaming.

    Come to think, I’ve never seen Bajo and a fully functional high tech terminator like robot in the same room, coincidence?, i think not. Even though my reasoning behind why Bajo would win clearly makes no sense and would probably have been more logical had it been written by someone with severe head trauma , its the truth.

    Bajo would win because he’s a robot

    ***Junglist wins!***

    Chuck "Junglist" Norris would win. Ask anyone.

    And the battle begins. FIGHT!
    Junglist is the first to move, he sprints to Bajo - and what is this?! It looks like he's trying to jump on Bajo's head! What a disaster is he not aware that ABC physics differs substantially from that in the Mushroom Kingdom? Nevertheless, he perseveres, jumping like a mad man in the same spot!
    Bago makes a move...he pulls off a shoryuken while Junglist is in mid-air! What a well executed counter.
    Wait wut; is he still shoryuken-ing!?
    A Challenger Appears!
    Out of no-where, Rei commando-rolls in with a M82A2! That's ridiculous; the gun is almost larger than her...
    She lies on the ground and takes aim at Bajo from a distance. 1, 2, Pull. Bajo is massively damaged - (un?)fortunately his limbs remain intact*
    She takes aim again - but wait!

    yet *Another* Challenger Appears!
    Hex comes in from the side and equips the 'sword of 1000 souls'. She starts hacking away at Rei, but Rei retaliates by giving Hex the ol' Hadoken to the face.

    Everyone is on their last ounce of health - but all are still alive.

    Out of nowhere from the distance, P_Nutz teleportes to the rest of the Good Game crew!! He comes in and......

    "Isshun Sengeki"

    ....Pulls off the Shin Shun Goku Satsu (apparently meaning 'True Instant Hell Murder').

    Junglist, Bajo, Rei, Hex: NOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooOOO!

    A winner is P_Nutz!!1
