    At the close of the submission deadline last Thursday, we'd received tens of thousands of videos—many of them amazing, others less amazing but at least following the rules, and still more of them clips from King of Queens with Linkin Park songs dubbed over them. While we appreciate the passion of that final group, we should remind you that the King of Queens Metal Maelstrom contest isn't until next month.

    For the rest of you, this is a reminder to get voting. As of last Thursday the Saxxys entered the all-important Battle Voting stage, with your choices bringing the strongest videos in each category to the top of the heap. Battle Voting ends Thursday, May 26th, so if you've got opinions, vote now while they still matter!

    Once Battle Voting's culled the weak, Kevin James-based rap metal entries from the herd, a panel of immortal Valve combat film critics will descend from their monastery at the top of the Space Needle to choose a set of final nominees from each category. They will then bang an important-looking gong, thus re-opening the voting to the community. Each user will get ONE vote per category to help determine who will be taking home Saxxys.

    I gave up after seeing a 30 second slow mo of a Gmod execution of a HL2 NPC to some drum and bass music.

    So they're relying on the masses to remove the disqualified videos from the running and choosing from the survivors rather than the other way around?

    Gee, I can't imagine how this could possibly go wrong.

    I dunno, seems like a decent idea, considering they're still screening all the flagged entries before deleting them.

    And there's a lot of stupid shit in there. I've seen some clips that were submitted that were just clips from different TV series.
