Hey, I'm all about Sub-Zero vs Sub-Zero on the 2600!  Change the color 
(well, and the ice ball to a harpoon) and *POOF* it's Sub-Zero vs 
Scorpion.  I always wished someone would write Lau vs. Pai for the 
Genesis with the same sort of "conservation of resources" mindset.  

Don't forget to save some space for a PF-graphic of your (the designer's) 
face muttering something that vaguely resembles "TOASTY!!!".  ;)

And wrt the contest winners...

LOL!  That really is worth an award, isn't it?  And for character, A 
29!!!  (if you don't remember Puttin' on the Hits, disregard that last 
inside joke ;)  Good job fellows, and there's hardly a PC I've touched 
that doesn't have PCAE, TPS, and Oyst on it by now!  Looking fwd to next 
year; maybe someone really _can_ get a booth at E3...
