Well then, holy shit. Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, green monsters who live in trash cans, welcome to the 2018 return of the GameRevolution, Royal Rumble, Gaming Edition! We have sixteen fighters from all genres of gaming who are entering a sixteen player tournament. Starting off with the preliminary rounds, quarter finals, semi finals and then, the legendary grand final. Who will win this epic showdown? That depends entirely up to you! Every forty eight hours (as I type this, it's currently Monday the 12th of February, 8:02 AM, ACST time zone) a new round will commence. You will have forty eight hours to submit your votes via the voting poll here on this thread. Obviously, the fighter with the most votes will win the bout! I will personally not be voting unless the votes are tied, then I will randomly vote for one of the two fighters using a number generator (which is how all of these fights are being organized, it's all random). Here are your chosen fighters! 1. War (Darksiders) 2. Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell) - DEFEATED (Preliminaries, Round 3 against Adam Jensen) 3. Gene (Godhand) (Moving onto Quarter Finals to face Adam Jensen) 4. Dante (Devil May Cry) 5. Viewtiful Joe - DEFEATED (Preliminaries, Round 2 against Simon Belmont) 6. Toon Link (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker) 7. Kirby (Kirby's Dream Land) 8. Samus Aran (Metroid) (Moving onto Quarter Finals to face Simon Belmont) 9. Simon Belmont (Castlevania) (Moving onto Quarter Finals to face Samus Aran) 10. Kratos (God of War) - DEFEATED (Preliminaries, Round 3 against Gene) 11. Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid) 12. Corvo Attano (Dishonored) - DEFEATED (Preliminaries, Round 1 against Samus Aran) 13. Adam Jensen (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) (Moving onto Quarter Finals) 14. Jackie Estacado (The Darkness) 15. Domingo (Shining Force) 16. Vyse (Skies of Arcadia) Down goes Kratos! This was one battle that the God of War could not win. Winner, and claiming his place in the quarter finals to battle Adam Jensen, is Gene! Up next for round five of the preliminaries... WAR VERSUS DOMINGO An interesting if not peculiar match up! War, a Nephilim and the youngest of the four horseman, is said to be unmatched in combat with his massive sword (perhaps this tournament will prove he has superiors?). Described as both honorable and savage, War has fought in countless battles, riding in on his noble steed, Ruin, leaving a trail of blood and corpses. War's opponent is Domingo, a strange looking magical creature that hatched from an egg. Domingo is highly intelligent and thus, comes across as cunning and arrogant. Despite his small and odd appearance, Domingo is a powerful mage and is often described by his peers as "over powered". The youngest horseman, versus a magical floating balloon thing! Who will win the weirdest duel yet?! Voting is open now until Friday the 23rd of February!
