    Talking NG.com FAQ Contest – Inquire within

    NG.com FAQ Contest

    We want you – yes, the populous of ng.com – to participate in the first-ever FAQ contest where you can win prizes for your efforts. The rules are quite simple:

    You will select one game from a list of three and write a FAQ containing whatever info you choose. The FAQ itself doesn’t have to follow any specific guidelines as long as it contains information that other gamers find useful.

    For example: instead of writing a full-blown move list, you can write a FAQ containing useful tidbits like combos, strategies, and secret characters. We will be looking for content (is it informative?), creativity (does it entertain as well as inform?) and overall execution (are the sections in your FAQ easy to find?). As for the rest – well, we’re leaving the ball in your court.



    You must choose one of the following games as the subject matter of your FAQ:

    Samurai Shodown 5
    SNK Vs. Capcom
    Metal Slug 5.

    Remember: we’re looking for content and creativity.

    All right, here comes the exciting part! Yes, you guessed it right -- we’re moving on to the prizes.


    Prizes:

    1st Place: MVS Kit / AES cart – The winner can choose one of the following in either MVS or AES format:

    AES:
    SNK Vs. Capcom
    Matrimelee
    KOF2K2

    MVS:
    SNK Vs. Capcom
    Matrimelee
    KOF2K2
    Metal Slug 5
    Samurai Shodown 5
    =========


    2nd Prize: The winner can choose one of the following:

    (AES format only): Ghost Pilots, Alpha Mission II, Sengoku
    (MVS format only): Super Dodge ball
    =========


    3rd prize: The winner can choose one of the following:

    (AES format only): Magician Lord, Nam 1975
    (MVS format only): Rage of the Dragons
    =========


    The deadline for the contest is June 28th, 2004. All submissions must be e-mailed to neolord@neo-geo.com. Inquires about the contest can be sent to the aforementioned e-mail address.

    A big thanks to Shawn at the NeoStore for donating the prizes and covering shipping charges…

    I recind my initial skepticism, this is a great idea, and those are great prizes.

    Good work NeoLord, and mad props to Shawn for being so generous.

    I might do something for SvC or MS5, that 2k2 home cart is very tempting.

    Not that I΄m complaining, but are those carts brand new (AES games sealed, and MVS carts complete/new kits)?

    Great contest, by the way. I΄m surely giving it a shot. I might start with SvC.

    You have no reason to be concerned; the home carts and MVS kits on offer will be brand-new -- we will not be offering used merchandise as prizes for the contest.

    Sure, why not! It sounds like it would make for an interesting read.

    Anything goes as long as the content is useful to all those who read it.

    Kind of a dumb question maybe, but are the prizes going to be all ENG carts or will we have a choice of JPN for some of them.

    Secondly, once I submit my FAQ, which will be soon, will it be posted before the June 28th deadline, cause I would like to see it up and hopefully help some people.

    Thirdly, who is judging this contest?

    EDIT: Lastly, can you make more than one submittal?

    Thank you, that is all

    the FAQ i submitted for SvC wasn't really helpful , but i think some people might get a kick out of it and I'd like to see what people would say about it so i'd be game for posting it before the deadline.

    BUT NO ONE BETTER STEAL MY IDEA

    lol

    It really depends on the cart you choose as your prize. The MVS kits for 1st place will be English stock only, but the home carts can be either English or Japanese. We're offering (English) NOS for 2nd and 3rd place with no Japanese equivalents available to the winner. We really tried to keep both English and Japanese collectors / gamers in mind while choosing each prize, but alas – we did what we could to make it appealing to everyone.

    Secondly, once I submit my FAQ, which will be soon, will it be posted before the June 28th deadline, cause I would like to see it up and hopefully help some people.
    We haven't really decided; it may not happen until after the deadline.

    Thirdly, who is judging this contest?
    We may use a voting system to determine the winners, but nothing has been decided yet.

    EDIT: Lastly, can you make more than one submittal?

    Thank you, that is all
    My bad for not mentioning this in my initial post, but you’re only allowed to have one submission.
