View Full Version : LittleBigAmazing Race - Help and Staff required!

12-07-2010, 01:24 AM
Are you ready for it? The epic reality adventure making it's LBP debut? You better be ready for it, because the LittleBigAmazing Race is coming soon!

Like the regular Amazing Race there is to be 10 teams competing for the ultimate prize of $1,000,000..... no wait... okay, maybe only $20 on PSN... but still! it is to be an epic competiton and I'm still looking for volunteers to help me host, and people to find levels, and make levels for which Detours, Roadblocks, Fastforwards, all that good stuff can be performed, and clues can be hidden, i'm also still looking for player too, but there are some rules that must be followed if you are to join:

Must be getting LBP2, as this contest is based in LBP2
Must have the ability to be on PSN at least once a week
Must pick a partner to compete with you through the whole race
Must have time when on PSN as legs can take a short, or long length of time
Owning a chatpad or keyboard for PSN would be benificial
Must be able to have fun!

The rules for Staff members are pretty much the same, so if you would like to help out, or play, send me a message, or just post on this thread, I'm hoping to get the contest started soon, and your help is the only thing thing that can get this train wreck a rolling!

Estimated start date: Maybe late April, Early May, not making any promises.

P.S. More info will be posted in later stages of production.

P.P.S. Yes, this was inspired by Survivor LBP.

Between this, sibtiger's Big Brother, and the upcoming LBP dating show "I Love RockSauron", it looks like I've inspired a wave of "reality" inspired competitions on LBP.

RADICAL stuff...

I wouldn't mind actually being a participant in something for a change. A few questions though... How long are you planning on having the competition last? Second, any idea on the exact format...? As in, can you give me an example of what a leg of the race would entail?

Let me know and I'll let you know.

12-07-2010, 03:06 AM
I understand there is some confusion, so I will outline how a leg will work.

1: Start off by the team coming to my pod
2: when they want to start, I will reveal the first clue, they discuss, and tell me what to search
3: Whether it is a Roadblock, Detour, or just plain level, they will do the challenge.
*Roadblocks are challenges for 1 person, Detours are challenges where you pick between 2 challenges, and plain levels are... plain levels.*
4: I will time them, and bring times from challenge to challenge.
5: The team with the fastest time will win the leg's prize, (Thinking XP prize packs) and the loser may, or may not be eliminated, whether it is an Elimination leg, or non elim.

So yeah, that's the basic format, may make some tweaks though, so that isnt final.

12-15-2010, 05:44 AM
which is the starting date of the competition???

12-15-2010, 05:49 AM
IM IN :3
i will get lbp2 but i think the 28/1/2010(my birthday)and i dont have partner (if you want a partner only add me in psn and send me a p.m :D
btw this will be awesome :D!

12-15-2010, 08:33 PM
No official starting date yet, I am thinking about 2 weeks after LBP2 is out, give people some time to settle in, because If I get things together for the LBP1 side, there will likely only be one leg, so I'm going to hold off, just to make sure everyone has LBP2

12-15-2010, 08:57 PM
Didn't see this before. ... I'm in. To play I mean. If I could somehow help AND still play that'd be nice too... but yeah.

... even though I absolutely hate reality shows and never even heard of this one before :p /runs

12-15-2010, 09:04 PM
Sign me up to help! :p

12-15-2010, 10:06 PM
Count me in, I'm starting to like these kind of competitions. :p

Not to mention the $40 PSN card would REALLY help me, since I can't buy PSN cards (or anything online. D: ) so this would finnaly let me buy something online I've been wanting for a long while. :D

12-15-2010, 11:01 PM
ah good, this is jumping now, but if Rawk is in, I think we may be doomed.
and haven't quite decided on the prize yet, but I'll probably get my hands on a $40 card, if not then 20, and if not that I'll get some people to donate XP.
but remember you need to be in partners, and will be getting LBP2.

12-16-2010, 01:15 AM
I'll give it a go.

That's if someone wants to partner up with me, I'm too indecisive to choose a partner myself.

12-16-2010, 01:57 AM
Sig me up too! I'd love to help. But do we need the LBP2 Beta to help?

12-16-2010, 02:13 AM
no, you'll just need to be getting the full game.

mr Radical 5601
12-16-2010, 03:51 AM
wow Rock... ditch Survivor for all of these upstart LBP "Reality" competitions... I'm hurt. Also, you're going to lose soooo hard if you end up facing off against me.

12-16-2010, 04:10 AM
are you saying you wish to participate good sir?
heh, we've got a party now!

12-16-2010, 05:26 AM
Mercuy can be 3 weeks later?

12-16-2010, 05:49 AM
Mercuy can be 3 weeks later?

But if Mercury is 3 weeks late, how are we supposed to start, and do the competition until then? :p

12-16-2010, 12:31 PM
I'm having a few difficulties to understand but..

This is basically just a race, that we do with a friend while you time us? There's no creating involved at all?

I'm in.

12-16-2010, 04:46 PM
silverleon,want to be my partner??? :D:D:D:D we will win that 40$!!!!

12-16-2010, 04:59 PM
then...the contest its only running and jumping or we need to create or something? i need information >.<

12-16-2010, 05:00 PM
But if Mercury is 3 weeks late, how are we supposed to start, and do the competition until then? :p srry i typed bad :p :p :p

12-16-2010, 10:53 PM
Triple post! new record!
and just to be clear, I am changing a few things, the start date is now (unoffical) Feb 10. and I think i'll reduce the prize to $20, and some XP, 40 is quite the handful I have just realized, and I need to get some DLC for myself, I only have like 4 packs, gotta look good for LBP2!

and also, no creating involved, but there is some problem solving and puzzles.
actually... maybe creating, i dunno.

12-16-2010, 10:58 PM
Ok, I'm getting first day soo... -fistpumps-

12-17-2010, 04:51 PM
Hi im david im in...im partner of littlebigmau we talked and we will be partners :D (then im in :3)

12-19-2010, 02:52 AM
Hi err... then the date its officialy FEBRUARY 10th!yay! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

12-19-2010, 03:14 AM
Hey, i won't be able to play lbp once a week, but i still wanna play. so, do you think there is anything i can do? since i won't be able to play lbp as often as i need to. I am sure there is something i can do. Make levels,... i dont know... but i want to do something. The last three contests i joined never announced a winner, and never passed out prizes. So, yeah. I wanna do this.

12-19-2010, 03:40 AM
Hi err... then the date its officialy FEBRUARY 10th!


the start date is now (unoffical) Feb 10.

Yep. and flamester, there isn't much we can do until LBP2 is out, I have done most of the organizing that can be done, but other than that, we can only wait.

12-19-2010, 03:43 AM
Doesnt mean we can't start brewing up some ideas. we have to have an idea of what we're doing before we can do it. don't we?

12-19-2010, 03:44 AM
Is it going to be country-themed like the original, or will it be something different?

12-19-2010, 04:44 AM
yes, it will have themes, like futuristic levels, forest levels, cave levels, etc, if anyone has ideas for themes, feel free to tell me.

12-19-2010, 04:30 PM
Feature-ette Theme Leg! house of bounce challenge, cretinator, music based, SACKBOT THEME LEVEL ok. maybe some of those wouldn't work, but.... the house of bounce challenge is something i could see happening.

12-19-2010, 06:03 PM
COUNT ME IN but if you don't mind just assign me a random partner i might not be able to get a partner.

12-20-2010, 12:45 AM
In the amazing race,(from DISCOVERY CHNL) its a country style,paradise style,and a bit of futuristic challeges.(thats all) :P

12-27-2010, 09:06 PM
Update: due to the number of competitions starting around the beggining of february, and the number of players I still need, I have decided to move to start date up to the 20th of February. Check the OP if you are interested in joining.

01-07-2011, 02:02 AM
Just reminding people about this, still looking for contestants, and I don't think i'm going to make any descisions on start date, It'll start when we get enough people, everyone's confortable with LBP2, and it is ready.

02-15-2011, 09:28 PM
I''ll partner up with Mr Radical for funzies :) I want in :D

02-16-2011, 06:14 PM
I'd like to join.

02-17-2011, 02:43 AM
i want to join i dont have partner so please partner me with some one

02-17-2011, 12:46 PM
I'll join. But I still need a partner.

02-18-2011, 04:07 PM
If you still have room, I would like to either join, or help you run it. I had thought of this long before you started it and had it pretty well figured out,but did not want to step on your toes when you announced you wanted to do it. So either way, if you want me to help or play, let me know. If not...no hard feelings.

02-25-2011, 02:25 PM
wow, just saw this. I would like to join as contestant and I have a partner.has it started yet?

02-25-2011, 02:34 PM
Alright, well I think it's about time I addressed what's going on here, it Hasn't started yet, and won't be starting for a while, I've been busy, haven't had much time to go on LBP, I also haven't had many people volunteer to help me either, so any help would be appreciated, all new contestants have been added to the list, i'll keep you guys updated if I make any more progress.

02-25-2011, 07:15 PM
Hey there, I'm totally in this if the person I want to partner with is. I'll ask him if he's interested. If he is then you can sign me right up! I'll let you know.

mr Radical 5601
02-28-2011, 12:17 AM
uh... i see that I'm listed as teaming with sibtiger. That's a no. If this ends up happening, I'll choose my partner myself.

03-10-2011, 03:53 PM
OK, so even though I offered to help you said no one offered. I guess I am no one...
