Yeah, so I'm a bit slow. Sorry. The winner of the Dishwasher T-shirt is (drumroll, drumroll, drumroll) MightyHealthy.
He recommends gore lovers check out Day of the Dead, and to be more precise, the ending. Now if we could just get him to add an avatar image...
If you didn't win, don't fret. I'll give you another shot at something remarkably similar in the future. Keep your eyes peeled.
Thanks again to James Silva of Ska Studios!
To be perfectly honest, I'm a little sad doing this contest because I actually want to keep this t-shirt for myself. But alas, our faithful XBLArcade readers have needs too and the right thing to do is to share the love. So, you guys better show me you're worth it.
Therefore, to enter, make a comment on this post and tell me your favorite (or least favorite) gore moment from a game, tv show, movie, whatever. I will select a winner early next week.
A huge thanks goes out to James Silva, the twisted mind behind the game, for giving us the opportunity to give back to our audience.
Below I have included shots of the front and back including detail shots of the amazing graphics. The shirt is a large, black, short-sleeved t-shirt.
(This contest is for North America only as my shipping budget is limited. Winners of contests in the previous 3 months are not eligible. Cheaters will be terminated on the spot.)
If gore is not your thing, turn away now. Sure, the gore in upcoming XBLA game The Dishwasher is over the top and not terribly realistic. But quibbles like that didn't stop Fox News from working everyone up into a tizzy over Mass Effect's digital porn status. Therefore, avert your eyes children. I don't wanna get sued. It's time for the adults to enjoy a moment of macabre beauty fresh from the mind of James Silva of Ska Studios.
Go ahead and jump down the rabbit hole my violence-craving friends. Tell me if your lust for blood and cyborg destruction is satiated. Sick puppy that I am, it just whets my appetite.
If you dig this game, you will want to check back here tomorrow. I've got a wee contest and it revolves around The Dishwasher. Stay tuned.

One part Dishwasher, all parts violent orgy, The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai has a vicious style all its own. One of the most stylish games to come out of the Dream-Build-Play competition (and one of the winners, for that matter) The Dishwasher has been chugging along, preparing for a final release on XBLA.
Along the way we have been granted various glimpses into the world of this dishwashing rampage (read: delicious gorefest). And perhaps those earlier videos left you wanting more? If so a new trailer has just arrived that features more blood, more insane massive damage combos, and more...guitar? This new trailer displays a feature that is certainly new to me -- button-matching guitar solos. Think Boom Boom Rocket-style shredding. It's like...oh just watch the video to see.
Oh, and in case all that slashing makes you lonely -- co-op play is included as well.

Today, the winners of the Dream-Build-Play contest were finally announced at the launch of Gamefest 2007 (a Microsoft-run development conference focused on XNA). After whittling the field down to 20 finalists the panel of judges have finally selected the winner. Actually, I should really say winners because the top 4 contestants are all being offered publishing deals with Microsoft to bring their games to XBLA. So who won and what are the games like?
