During the next six weeks, we'd like to do an experiment that will reward members who use GameSpot Answers. Each week, GameSpot staff will post some questions about five games using our GS-MR_Riddles account. We'll share the games and questions with you, and you'll have the opportunity to answer them. Once we have selected the best answers for each question, we'll select the best answer and contact those who will receive a reward for the week!
For those unfamiliar, GameSpot Answers (an extension of GameFAQs Answers) lets members, just like you, ask and answer all the tough strategy- and hint-related questions for all your favorite games, without having to consult a walkthrough. "How do I beat this boss?" "Where do I get this item?" And the like. The most frequently asked questions (and the best answers) get tagged and floated to the top. The member who asks the question may also select the best answer. We find that this is a great way to get that one quick tip to keep you going in your game of choice, and we hope you find it useful, too.
Since many of the games to be showcased in this pursuit of leet learning are presented on multiple platforms; to keep things sporting we ask that each user post one answer per game rather than posting the same answer across all platforms.
Each week we'll focus on a new category, which gives you all six chances to receive a reward, like an emblem or profile points.
Week 1: Enemy/Boss Help
Week 2: Quest/Puzzle Help
Week 3: Item Help
Week 4: Plot Help
Week 5: Strategy Help
Week 6: Technical Help
All GameSpot members are eligible to participate, but we do have some guidelines.
- FIVE MINIMUM ANSWERED QUESTIONS PER WEEK. All GameSpot members need to answer at least five questions across any of the GameSpot Answers pages for the week. You can select one week you would like to participate in, or you can simply answer every week. Just make sure you have five answered questions for any given week to be eligible. This doesn't have to be about the games we have selected, but to get noticed by us, we'd like to have someone active for that week. Yes, if you answered one or many of the questions the GS-MR_Riddles account asked, then that will also be counted toward the five questions you answered in a given week.
- REWARDS. Staff members will grant the Mr. Riddles emblem to the users who received the "best answered" question for each question GS-MR_Riddles asked. If you happen to answer a good question, but you are not selected as the best answer, don't worry! We also have plans to grant GS profile points to those of you who had solid answers. So, don't give up! Continue to answer the questions we have to increase your chances.
Check back tomorrow for week one's questions.
