Ryse: Son of Rome needs names for its finishing moves, and GameStop is offering copies of the game and other loot to whoever can come up with them.
Ryse: Son of Rome has some pretty bloody finishing moves, but what it apparently doesn’t have are cool names for them. That’s where you come in: GameStop and Crytek are holding a contest to name five of the game’s finishers, with copies of Ryse plus a t-shirt and autographed poster for the winners. The first move has already been named but the second will be up for grabs until 4 pm EDT on September 10, which is tomorrow for those of you who don’t have a calendar handy. Three more offerings will follow, each open for submissions for 48 hours.
The second finisher is available just to the right. As you can see, it involves bashing a dude in the face with a shield, then bashing another dude in the face, then chopping off his arm, then chopping the first dude in the face and then chopping the second dude in the face. The Slap-Chop, perhaps? The Hand-to-Mouth? The Vandalizer? The Visigoth Viscerator? Yes, I know, it’s “eviscerator,” but this is a creative enterprise, people. Artistic license and all that.
Anyway, if you want to get in on the action, all you have to do is follow GameStop on Twitter and tweet your suggestion with the appropriate hashtag: #rysemove2, #rysemove3 and so forth. Full details and rules are up on Facebook – now get out there and name that move!
(PS. Feel free to use any of my above suggestions – I’m waiting for “The Sack of Rome” before I enter.)
