The Best Video Game Weapon - CPAC Panel 2015

It's dangerous to go alone, but what should you take? The Master Sword? The Portal Gun? The Poltergust 3000? We at Mad Bracket Status are here to help. This year we are hosting a panel to determine which weapon is the Best Video Game Weapon. 



You, the audience members, will argue for the individual weapons, and all of the audience will vote on which makes it to the next round. All weapons from video games are eligible, but you have to have a reason. You can submit your Best Video Game Weapon with a sentence making your case for your weapon of choice to madbracketstatus@gmail.com or write your submission down and put it in the Mad Bracket Status box at our room (EAS 222) on CPAC day. We will collect the best ones and have the submitters present their arguments to the audience with a chance to win a fabulous prize! 

Last year's panel was so much fun and this one will be ever better. If you want to see what we did last year check out The Worst Pokemon Panel on Youtube. This year's panel will be from 2:30 to 3:30 in EAS 222. You can read more info and sign up to attend here. We'll see you there!

Ultimate Android - Week 2 Results

No strings here. We have just finished the second round of the Ultimate Android bracket. You have eliminated eight androids to reveal the Elite Eight competitors in our Ultimate Android bracket. There were a lot of suprises and some clear favorites are emerging. Here are the results from Week 2.

Murderers
Amazo (DC Comics) vs 8 Zero (Mega Man)
13 Jenny Wakeman (My Life as a Teenage Robot) vs T-1000 (T2: Judgement Day)
Vision (Marvel Comics) vs 10 Metal Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog)
T-800 (Terminator) vs Cell (Dragonball Z)

Servants
Brainiac (DC Comics) vs vs 9 Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
4 Ultron (Marvel Comics) vs C-3PO (Star Wars)
15 EDI (Mass Effect) vs 10 Megaman (Megaman)
Astro Boy (Astro Boy) vs 6 Marvin (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)


As you can see there were a ton of upsets. Most notably, both number one seeds were eliminated. Considering the seeding method was relatively arbitrary it isn't a huge shocker but is surprising none the less. Both Marvel bots advanced while bot DC bots were defeated. Cell and Astro Boy were also both defeated which means there are no more anime robots but both Mega Man androids are still in contention. One Terminator remains and two space robots (Marvin and Data) will continue onto the next heat. Rounding out the top eight and the only female left in the bracket is extreme underdog XJ9 from My Life as a Teenage Robot.

Here are this week's match ups.

Murderers
Zero (Mega Man) vs 13 Jenny Wakeman (My Life as a Teenage Robot)
Vision (Marvel Comics) vs T-800 (Terminator)

Servants
4 Ultron (Marvel Comics) vs Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
10 Megaman (Megaman) vs Marvin (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

Who is the Ultimate Android?

Behold the bracket! We have assembled 32 of the greatest androids in the history of popular culture with one purpose: to determine the Ultimate Android!
















Since the dawn of cinema with Metropolis and the book of Asimov, blurring the line between man and machine has been a topic different writers and genres have tackled. You're looking at characters from comic books, television shows, films, and video games. We have picked out 32 we think deserve to be in the running for the coveted title: The Ultimate Android.


We decided to create two conferences. There is the first, the Servants. These are androids who are created to serve humanity in a nonviolent way. This is regardless of what they may end up doing (cough cough Ultron). We are looking at where they start. The second conference is the androids what we call the Murderers. These are robot built with a violent intention. Some want to wipe our humanity. Some want to protect it. Either way, these robots are built to kick ass. The conferences were seeded by year of their creation.

Here are the first round match ups.


Murderers
1 Amazo (DC Comics) vs 16 Aegis (Persona)
2 Vision (Marvel Comics) vs 15 Sonny (I, Robot)
3 T-800 (Terminator) vs 14 Number 6 (Battlestar Galactica)
4 Johnny 5 (Short Circuit) vs 13 Jenny Wakeman (My Life as a Teenage Robot)
5 T-1000 (T2: Judgement Day) vs 12 Zeta (The Zeta Project)
6 Cell (Dragonball Z) vs 11 Femmbot (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery)
7 Robo (Chrono Trigger) vs 10 Metal Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog)
8 Zero (Mega Man) vs 9 Jack (Tekken)

Servants
1 Brainiac (DC Comics) vs 16 Baymax (Big Hero 6)
2 Rosie (The Jetsons) vs 15 EDi (Mass Effect)
3 Astro Boy (Astro Boy) vs 14 H.E.L.P.e.R. (Venture Bros)
4 Ultron (Marvel Comics) vs 13 Dorothy (Big O)
5 C-3PO (Star Wars) vs 12 Bender (Futurama)
6 Marvin (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy) vs 11 Alpha 5 (Power Rangers)
7 Roy Batty (BladeRunner) vs 10 Megaman (Megaman)
8 Bishop (Aliens) vs 9 Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation
