Ready for the Old Spice Challenge?

What's the challenge, listening to their music? - Thankfully this post has nothing to do with the Spice Girls but before I get going, take a look at Posh on the far left here. That boob job borders on the hysterical. I guess Becks likes to play with soccer balls in the bedroom as well as on the pitch. Thank you! I'll be here all week! Try the veal, its great.
The Old Spice Challenge I'm referring to is the Xbox 360 Achievement Point mongering one. You may remember the Microsoft sponsored challenge about a year ago. Rewards like t-shirts, free XBLA downloads, and gamer pics were given out if you earned a certain amount of Achievement Points in a certain amount of time. If you recall from my posts about it last year, the challenge fueled my already obsessive drive to earn points, leaving me a sleepless wreck and getting me as close as I'll ever get to being Tyrone Biggums. Good news, the Old Spice Challenge has returned, but in a different form.
Microsoft is sitting this one out (Old Spice is teaming up with, which I absolutely love and highly recommend to any 360 owner) but prizes are still around and better yet, the competition is all user defined. Its all in gamers hands. There are 20 different prize packages in different tiers, based on the length of the competition and number of teams involved. Below is a list of the rewards.
Tier 1 · Requirements: 7 day challenge, 5 gamers minimum · $20 Amazon gift card · 1,600 Xbox Live Microsoft Points · $20 Best Buy gift card
Tier 2 · Requirements: 14 day challenge, 10 gamers minimum · $50 Best Buy gift card · 4,000 Xbox Live Microsoft Points · Xbox Live Gold Membership (1 year)
Tier 3 · Requirements: 30 day challenge, 15 gamers minimum · $100 Best Buy gift card · 8,000 Xbox Live Microsoft Points · 6 month GameFly subscription
Tier 4 · Requirements: 30 day challenge, 20 gamers minimum · Year long GameFly subscription · Xbox 360 HD DVD Player
If you're a big point hog head to to create a challenge or join one. This is a good opportunity to prove how much of a stud you are to your friends and rub their faces in it. I'd be willing to take on any readers in a challenge but lets be honest, I'd destroy you all and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings (read: I don't want to turn into Tyrone Biggums again, my wife just might divorce me this time).

More hysterical is the dress "Sumer of Love Spice" is wearing. WTF?!

Nothing wrong with Posh's soccer balls IMHO. I'd play with 'em. ;)

- That's nasty. Fake boobs are gross.

Well it really depends on the quality of the fake boobs. Obviously, her extremely tight upper garmet is pushing them up and in quite a bit. When some stripper from Deja Vu gets a boob job and when a multi millionaire gets a boob job, results tend to be different. Though not the case at all times. Take Tara Reid for example. She used to be good looking like 10 years ago. She's OK now...She got fat for awhile and smoked way too much. Now she's skinny as hell with extra skin hanging here and there.
Posh, I think, gets hotter all the time. She's like Diane Lane or a fine wine or some old scotch or somethin'. Just keeps getting better with age. That also describes me :D

BTW: You guys missed a pretty good LAN party this past weekend at the Air Force academy.

Terry "coloradojoe" Terrones said...

Comparing Diane Lane to Posh is just plain wrong. Diane Lane = total babe with nice, natural boobs. Posh = total dog who has to have plastic put inside her to make her feel good about herself.

Unless a woman has had cancer or some other condition that would require a boob job, I think a person should be happy with what they were given.

Eli the Mad (Beer) Man said...

Ub3rn00b... ya boooy! YOu and I think alike thank you very much. Posh does in fact get hotter all the time. Same with Diane Lane. But... the two are in completely different categories of hot. Diane Lane is a nice refined bottle of wine, while Posh is a great microbrew. Still both TOTALLY hot, just in different ways. ;)

As for you TnT Brady Man Love... you best pipe down about people having to put stuff inside of themselves to feel good. Or are ya gonna force me to bring your bro Phil up in here and have him tell child hood stories about what you've put inisde yourself. ;)

Science is good. Science is our friend. And in some cases (not all mind you), science can enhance the "natural" beauty and order of things.

Mmmmmmmm... "soccer balls." ;P

Ub3rn00b said...

Well, the plastic inside makes me feel good about herself too. And I'm happy with what she was the doctor.

Terry "coloradojoe" Terrones said...

This is getting a little more philosophical (and maybe psychological) than the average gaming blog gets but oh well, I can see we have a serious difference in opinion on the definition of beauty.

As the old saying goes, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". So I have no delusions I can convince either of you that putting shaped plastic under your skin to make something look like its there when its really not is just plain wrong (would either of you do it? pec implants? bicep implants?) and a sign of either the deterioration of society's perception of women, the faulty logic of the woman getting the procedure or a combination of both.

I used to be in your camp. I used to think Pamela Anderson was hot. But over time I started to think about The Lie that is fake boobs. Sure men and women lie to the other gender all the time. Men lie more verbally, women physically. But there is a line that both can cross. I can accept that a woman's hair, skin coloring, odor, height and weight are all to be taken with a grain of salt. Unlike fake boobs, after you get to know a woman, you eventually see these things for what they really are. But when a woman feels the need to take the extreme step of having expensive surgery to put fake parts into her body, what does that say? What does that say about the unrealistic physical expectations society has of women (certainly visible in the video game world, see: Lara Croft, Bloodrayne, etc)? And what does it say about the pressure (and therefore dangerous mental state) women are under to conform to this unrealistic perception? I think it says a lot, and as a father with a daughter and as a husband, I refuse to accept this view.

While I am wholeheartedly against this type of procedure, I would never judge anyone for having it done (I'm a firm believer in freedom of choice, even if I disagree with it). But because of my opinion, I don't find women with fake boobs attractive in the least.

I do however, crackup when I see guys on TV who want calf implants or some other implant. Now that's funny.

Wow!!! Someone got up on the WRONG damn side of the bed!!!! ;)

So... when you go to the grocery store and are asked "paper" or "plastic" - do you launch into one of these needlessly tiresome moral tirades??!?!?!

Bwaaaahahaha! Go back to bed... you're boring me!

FrostyMelon said...

Wow...Victoria Beckham...she needs to kidnap, tie me up, and take advantage of me for a weekend or two.

I don't think I've ever thought Pam Anderson was, she's like McDonalds - over a billion served (know what I mean)...bigger turn off for me than fake boobs.

LAN party? Why didn't we hear about it?!?

We all need to get together for a big beerfest, or something.

Terry "coloradojoe" Terrones said...

My morally bankrupt friend Eli. I try to send messages of truth to all my children. It is only through my teachings shall you be saved. Ha!

I thought it was an intesting topic, especially considering this is a gaming blog, so I threw in my two cents. Was my opinion preachy? Maybe. Angry? No way. I'm not Tom Cruise trying to indoctrinate you into my cult. That comes later.

As for a beerfest? I'm all for it.

Ub3rn00b said...

I'd come for the beer fest. We have 2 PC guys right here so far. Everyone else is a console gamer I guess. I would bring my 360 if everyone lets me use my keyboard/mouse adapter :D I still suck, but not as bad.

Oh..and you used to think Pamela Anderson was hot? Well you're right..sort of. She WAS hot a long long time ago, the first time she was in playboy. Then came the fake boobs and the fake lips. The fake lips totally change the appearance of her face. In fact, I'm pretty sure she had other things done to change the way her face looked. Then she shaved off her eye brows and drew them in with a magic marker. She became a monster.

Personally, I prefer real breasts to fake ones. If a girl is not hot to begin with (minus the boobs) then fake boobs are not going to help (unless you're a redneck). However, Posh, being a super duper mega hottie as she was to begin with, I feel that the augmentation gives me special feelings.
It's sort of like a nice car. You start with a really nice car...but then decide you would like to make some upgrades or changes just to add a little more appeal. Like some new hot rims or paint the trim on the interior. I dunno...New leather seats. Fake boobs on the passenger seat. Whatever.

Beer? When and where... I'm there! ;)
