Well hey guys, what up? It's been a long and crazy year but mostly, for me, it's been a pretty rewarding year running the site. If you read the short history of Negative World you can see that I have been doing this for a very long time, but only since last November/December has the site really been picking up.

Anyway, you guys have been super generous with donations so now it is time to give back! I have designed a contest and the winner will get a free downloadable WiiWare/DSiWare game of his/her choice (up to $15 US value). We'll figure out the transmission details later.

And the contest is... hold your breath guys, this is going to be a good one...


Basically, everyone has to choose one of their favorite Mega Man boss robots from the classic Mega Man series (Mega Man 1-10) and write a haiku about it, and then post it in this thread. I (and maybe the other administrators) will vote on our favorite, choose a winner, and then a free downloadable game will go out.

More rules:

A. Only one submission per user. If you want to edit your submission, go for it, but no additional submissions.
B. State the Mega Man boss robot you have chosen below your haiku
D. If everyone picks Metal Man, I'm going to get angry. There are other boss robots before Metal Man.
E. No copying anyone else's haiku. Be original damnit!
F. More rules will be inserted here if I think of any.

The competition will run until um... probably sometime around Christmas. I'll let you know in advance when the end is coming up.

In case you forget what a haiku is, it is a short verse that follows a pattern of 5 / 7 / 5 syllables. Example:

the rain falls slowly
soft on the surface as I
hop through life alone

-Toad Man

Why is the competition so random and stupid?


Totally serious though, free game is at stake. You can make your haiku serious, or funny, or whatever... but there can only be one winner. Unless I'm nice and pick two winners.

Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
Too bad, I don't particularly like Mega Man. But good luck to everyone, get creative!

We are insignificant

I've never made a haiku before, so here goes my first attempt!

fragile soft and free
floating about in the depths
my power seeks pain

- Bubble Man

Oh, and I'm only posting for fun, not to "enter." Gnarly idea for a contest though.

@anandxxx Had to do it man. HAD TO!

This is fun. Maybe I'll be generous and pick a few winners. MAYBE.

Actually it should be more democratic...

Wow, gotta say, if I have a say in this (I probably don't), I wouldn't know who to vote for. Some stiff competition!

Also, what happens if the winner doesn't live in the US? I don't think we can gift Wiiware across countries.

Yeah, that could be a problem. Although I know its been possible to change your Wii's country in system settings to gift games. Not sure if this is a legit/safe way to go about it. I hosted a contest a while back on another forum and ran into the same problem. I ended up going onto Amazon's German version of the website, ordering a Wii Points card, and shipping it to the guy.

I'm loving a bunch of these entries!

@Pandareus I've thought about that. There has to be some solution. Like if it were in Europe I could send money to Simba through paypal and he could gift it or whatever.

We'll cross that road if and when we get to it.
