GAME ON!

http://www.hackhunters.com/z_adnews/GameOn.gif
A HackHunters Exclusive!

We&#39;ve initiated a new HackHunters program called GAME ON! where we select a server from a clan who has posted in our PROMOTE YOUR CLAN (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php?board=6.0) section of our forum.

Every night for a week we will hang out on the featured server. If it turns out that after a few nights the server is &#39;dead&#39; then we will select a new server so check for updates and/or time changes.

It&#39;s easy to use... if you are not logged in to the forum, you will see the GAME ON! (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php?board=41.0) thread at the very bottom of the forum list. Before you launch your game, just come over to our website and click on the link, copy the IP and paste it into your XFire (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php?topic=149.0) favorites. It&#39;s that easy.


_________________________________________________
Why should I participate when I already have my own server? If you&#39;ve posted in our PROMOTE YOUR CLAN section, then you will also be featured, think of all the people who will get to know your server and may want to make it a permanent favorite. If you visit other featured servers, the favor will be returned. This program is good for everyone.

CLICK GAME ON! (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php?board=41.0) to learn more and join in the fun.

From: UBI Soft Forums (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/ubb.x?a=tpc&f=1521068375&m=4411052296)

Jackal Hunt, a special Far Cry 2 web-game, has launched.

Presented in association with our good selves, Jackal Hunt is a turn-based multiplayer game and competition in which players have to try and track down a specific player and bump him off before another, unidentified player takes them out instead.

The game will show you the location of your target, but not the person tracking you. Eek! However, you do get to see the person tracking them, allowing you to try and triangulate to some extent. The idea is to set as high a score as possible by killing enemies, collecting pickups and surviving for as long as possible.

If you&#39;re good enough to rise to the rank of Jackal and put a score on a leaderboard, you could win one of four gaming PCs, ten XFX graphics cards, a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360, a Philips amBX ambient gaming peripheral system, or loads of Far Cry 2 merchandise.


You can play Jackal Hunt at: www.jackalhunt.com

_________________________________________________
Prizes:

1st Prize:
A new PC. A special FarCry2 PC,
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650, quad 3.0 GHz
GeForce GTX 280 1GB
and all sort of other computer things...

2nd Prize:
XBox 360 Setup, including Console, Panasonic TCLX600 flat screen and the game Far Cry 2.

Weekly Prize Draw:
Each week of the promotion we will be giving out some great prizes to registered players. Sign up for your chance to win!
Included are:
Philips primium amBX Speaker Kit;
XFX GTX 280 1GB DDR3 Dual DV1 HDMI Graphics Card;
The Game, Far Cry 2.

Also:
Included on the map game itself, which you can find, are:
FarCry2 T-Shirts and HP iPowerballs

_________________________________________________
The Low Down... here&#39;s how it works. The Hunt is an online game you play through your browser. There is a map and you move your character on that map to try and find the &#39;Jackal&#39;. While making a move you also try and find things to pick up that will help you in your quest. When you select your move, you come back to the map when it registers all the moves of other players (up to 7 per map). Each turn cycle is 12 hours long, so you basically want to move twice a day to avoid being killed yourself as someone is also tracking you. On the East Coast, the turn is initiated at 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM.

Of course the only reason to play this game is to win prizes as it is not exactly an exciting game itself. I suspect there will be quite a few hard core Far Cry fans playing it... and some of us HackHunters ;)

You&#39;ll have to register on their site to play.

NOTE: After you select your character, CHANGE YOUR NAME and then click accept... i don&#39;t think it will accept the same name you registered on the site with... it has to be different or a variation.

Good luck, if you enter and win be sure to let us know. :)

Check this out from Doritos...


...make the #1 rated commercial for the Super Bowl and you could win a million bucks.

Take note, you not only have to be chosen by Doritos to have your commercial featured, but you have to beat all other ads that run during the Super Bowl and be voted the most popular to win the dough... and I&#39;m not talking cookie dough.

Their website is pretty cool, worth looking at in itself as well as some of the entries already submitted.

We all know here you can do something great greenbean!!!

And be sure we will be proud to share the $1,000,000 USD with you. ;D


If you need potential ideas I'm here to help.

Examples:

1- Something scary... Imagine a dramatic situation..... Someone alone in an old house hearing strange noises. Finally it's just kids eating Doritos.

2- An intruder comes inside a house while everyone is sleeping. The intruder walk accidentally on a Doritos dropped on the floor. Because the noise the intruder has to leave in a hurry.

3- A hunter is hidden and waiting silently in the forest for a potential prey. He eats a Doritos and because the noise all the animals are alerted and runs away.


(Another one similar to the #2.)

4- A wife is eating Doritos while watching television. Sudenly husband call to say he'll be a bit late. She notices the noise when eating Doritos is loud. Before going to bed, she decides to puts voluntarily some Doritos on the floor. The husband is entering in the the house later then he said. On a clock we see it's 3 o'clock in the night. The husband is trying to not make noise because he don't wants wife to realize he's back home so late than he walks on the Doritos and.... a few seconds later he sees a light opening top of the stairs.


Anyway, whatever the idea bean I'm sure with your talent the money is almost in our pockey now.

Go take your camera and ..... Action!!!!!

Actually I do have a few ideas, but most likely not the time to submit... one would have to produce an extremely finished, and perfect in every way, advertisement.

I like your ideas, especially the 1st one. After reviewing many submissions the ones with chips on the floor kind of grossed me out a bit, the anthesis of what I think a food company would want. But the one of the 'scary noises' is classic.

Here's some of my ideas:
1) Everyone is screaming at the super bowl as a 'hail mary' is thrown, it looks like the receiver is going to catch it and win the game, then someone bits into a chip and the crunch is heard by everyone making everyone turn towards the individual w/ a bag of Doritos as the camera zooms into him holding a chip... during the crunch the receiver bobbles the ball, trips, etc... Punch line: Doritos can not be held responsible for the out come of the Super Bowl.

2) lonely homely man sits alone in a park with his paper bag lunch, until he bits into a chip... he ends with the attention of everyone who 'casually, yet hurried vie to get close to him' with the punch line: "Popularity is but a Crunch away"

3) a young man comes in and sits down to an interview to explain how he would be the perfect employee, except that the interviewer can't hear anything as he munches on his chips as he sits there watching the typical expressions an energetic young professional makes... punch line: "Doritos: make the most of every moment"

4) young man arrives to pick up his prom date who has a 'could care less' father in the background, until, the father notices a bag of Doritos on the dashboard of the car, at which time the father invites himself as their chaperon and jumps in the car. The youngsters look at each other as the daughter whispers stearnly: 'I told you to hide the Doritos"

5) Parents hope to have their daughter return home who is stationed as a volunteer in the jungles of the Amazon, call her on the phone to see if she's okay. Being proud the daughter says everything is fine and she wished they'd stop calling her already... while the mother is speaking on the phone the father walks into the room with a bag of Doritos and 'crunches on one, then another'... the daughter says "what's that noise" the mother says, upon seeing the chips 'okay honey, i gotta go now, cya, have fun' and hangs up the phone. Next scene daughter is at the front door with the punch line: nothing brings a family closer together...

High Scores!

Yeah, I died a few times... forgot to make a move making me a sitting duck.

The game is still going on, despite the fact the competition is over. You make a move twice every day. Takes only a few minutes to complete your move, but the sign in is a pain. If you join, your objective is to try and kill the RED target, who is trying to kill the PURPLE target. You&#39;ll have to make a decision on whether your target (RED) is likely to move towards their Purple target or not move at all. If the player has a high score, you know they&#39;ll move so try and anticipate where they&#39;ll go.

You can&#39;t see the person who is hunting you, they&#39;re invisible on the board, but you can see the person (GREEN) who is hunting the person trying to kill you.

So, join the fun... so I can get an easy kill :D

I think you have to be over 18 for several reasons: 1) I think you need a credit card, 2) they can only enter contracts with adults, not minors (but doubt if they care much about this) and 3) because there are mature games on the site (seriously i doubt if they care about this either).

I wouldn&#39;t sweat it too much though as I think they&#39;re going to start charging fairly soon with a subscription fee, which brings me to the flaw of the service... you pay for a subscription and then buy your games.... If you stop the subscription you&#39;ve lost access to the games you&#39;ve purchased. How does that make sense?


_________________________________________________
Okay, now some comments on this promotion (and sorry it isn&#39;t available everywhere):

First, there are a couple of games worth checking out as I was surprise by how well they were developed. Both of these are first person shooters (most of the time).

The best one in my mind was FEAR 2. A mix of a traditional shooter and a horror. You fight against another army who seems to be defending the place and trying to cover up some experiments while you seek out to destroy Alma, a ghostly figure. The story is a bit convoluted but if you want to know what a chill down the spine feels like then this will give it to you.

FEAR 2: Project Origin
http://www.onlive.com/images/game_assets/FEARGM2_TitleCover_96_120.jpg
ESRB: M - Mature 17+
Genres: Shooter
Modes: Single Player, Multiplayer (yes it has multiplayer, not spectacular but it was workable).
Release Date: Jun. 17, 2010 (just a few months old)

Free Trial: YES for the next week or so (unlimited play while the offer lasts).
3 Day PlayPass:
5 Day PlayPass:
Full PlayPass:
$5.99
$8.99
$19.99


And,
Front Lines: Fuel of War
Again, very surprised by the quality of this game. Rich textures and environments and a good story line. Odd vehicle control switches to 3rd person and is difficult to steer, and a couple other oddities, but overall worth it to try out.

Other demos worth a try (about 30 minutes of play):

http://www.onlive.com/images/game_assets/MET2033_TitleCover_96_120.jpg
ESRB: M - Mature 17+
Genres: Action
Modes: Single Player
Release Date: Jan. 4, 2011 (this is a brand new title and has a rich environment and story. I like that they actually have a full range of civilians living a &#39;regular&#39; life as it brings a cool level of reality to gaming.)
