Splitreason.com

We're an online store for geeks and gamers with a strong focus on products that embody a high-tech lifestyle and passion for retro nostalgia. We play lots of video games, watch science fiction, read comic books, roll 20-sided dice, bring bits and bytes to life with thousands of lines of code, and spend most of our time basking in the radiation output from large, flat-screen LCD monitors. We may not have the best social skills or see the light of day very often, but rest assured, when the zombie apocalypse does come -- you want to roll with us.

Pumpkins for Geeks and Gamers

Halloween has come and gone so you’re either running to the dentist to have your teeth checked, or just running to burn off excess calories. Either way, it was worth it.

We had another great turnout for our annual pumpkin carving contest, you can check out the submissions and finalists below. If you’re in the top 3 we will contact you directly to dish out the prizes! If you were a participant, store credits have already been applied to your account. Thanks to everyone who participated, it was a blast. Trying to choose three winners is always a difficult process, but the decisions have been made!

We have a few contest ideas for the upcoming holiday season, so stay tuned. We’ll see how creative you can get with a different medium! Now on to the results…

Grand Prize Winner!

This was a great submission for a great game, featuring a Hydralisk on the front and Zerg Rush caption illuminated in the background from being carved out of the back of the pumpkin. Great work!

Runner-up!

Lots of laughs on this one. This pumpkin depicts the exploding sheep easter egg from Warcraft III, which you can see here. (also great use of background lighting effects!)

2nd Runner-up!

And of course, for our final finalist, the final boss from Metroid 3, Aurora unit 313!

All the other amazing entries!
