Preparations for the 2009 Golden Cyborg Awards...

Post by ElfenMagix on Tue 20 Oct 2009 - 15:10

Its Mid October.
I decided to take a flying jump into preparing the 2009 Golden Cyborgs award now than to wait until the end of the year where the actual celebrations happen. As it stands, it will be much like the 2008 awards, but with a better understanding, longer time to vote and other crap like that.

Right now, things are in my head are being put down onto paper. We can discuss them there.
The same categories from last year will be used as well as a few newly added ones. I'm even contemplating on the "WFT?!!" Aurora Award, as mentioned in that thread who's link I forget...

So let bang head and get this puppy howling, if anything at least to a slow start.

Can we stretch the deadline for 2009 submissions into the summer of 2010?

I'm not going to make it! Cry Unless an unfinished submission is applicable.

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

If you post it on some site where it can be read by all, even unfinished, it can be nominated. The Majority of last year's stories were unfinished works including my Solution's Resolution, which won best long story (>12 chapters), and it was finally completed 3 months after the awards.

Currently as it stands, I have 3 stories- Solution's Resolution (as a completed story), UN Resolution (as an incomplete story) and SWA: Diclonius End Game (as an incomplete story).

The second thing is to get readers to read it so they can nominate you.

Hmmm.....How about nominate only for the on-going and almost finish fanfic?

Nominated the finished stories look not quite right for me.

Same rules applies as last year, Emperor.
Somebody has to nominate the work (story, art, video, etc) so they can be voted on. Whether its finished or not is not an issue.

Can we have a GSG fanart that we have to make specifically for this? That'll be fun!

Only a quick question - I am currently writing a pretty long description of a possible 3D "Gunslinger Girl" videogame, complete with story, mission descriptions, etc. I know it's pretty arrogant for a n00b to even ask, but does it fit into any of the categories? Very Happy

Arrogance is a term best used for those who believe themselves to be too good to be with others.

As for your question, as it stands, it does not fit into any of the current categories.
But new categories will be created and discussed upon for their addition here (as a separate topic). The problem is you need a piece of work which is accessible to others. Video games take a long while to create, and having something on the drawing board of the R&D Dept where no one can play it, but making promises that it will be released only amounts to Vaporware.

If you had either video snippets of the game, they can be submitted in the Art/Video section. Or if you have a demo of the game, perhaps just a few rooms where you test how things work, you can release that as Games. The thing is others have to have used/seen it in order for it to be voted on and in the least nominated. Until then- nothing.

Well I don't think I'm better than anyone else, I don't think I can even be COMPARED to you guys in terms of talent and awesomeness as I'm way behind, but still - I am new here, have less than 20 posts and am already talking about the biggest award? I think it's a little arrogant, but I can't help it!

I think I didn't explain exactly what I'm doing. I have this series of "blogs" (although they aren't blogs anymore) called My Game Ideas. In it I write, well, my game ideas. For example, I wrote full description of a Phoenix Wright game that uses Project Natal, or a Bleach-based MMO. This time, I'm writing my game ideas for a game based off Gunslinger Girl. This game (and all my other ideas) are probably never going to be made, but readers commented that they're pretty fun to read. I myself am very proud of them.

They were formerly posted on the blogs on ScrewAttack.com (that's why I said it's a series of blogs earlier), but very recently the site changed its design and ALL the blogs, user data, etc were lost. That means ALL of the previous "My Game Ideas" episodes were lost. That means I'll start posting the newer episodes somewhere else (probably FanFiction.com).

So what are those "Game Ideas" after all? Well I put myself in the shoes of a director attached to making a game based off something. I write about the story, the characters, the graphics, the extras, the fighting, the weapons - everything that you may need as ideas in order to make a game, hence the title. The Gunslinger Girl episode is no exception Wink

The Awards are meant to recognize "completed works" - be they fiction stories, artistic drawings, animations or music videos / music compositions.

Now a "completed work" does not necessarily have to be actually completed - Elfen won the Best Fan Fiction - Long Story category for Solution's Resolution even though he had not yet finished it, but he did have scores of chapters written and posted. If he'd just posted a general outline for what Solution's Resolution would be about, it would not have been eligible for nomination, IMO.

So for a Gunslinger Girl game, something like a completed animation of a snippet of gameplay or some high-resolution artwork of what a scene would look like would be eligible for nomination in one of the art categories, IMO.
