"Sportsman/Fuchsia – Review a game and intentionally work-in a bash on Coldplay."

Wonderful.

Poor Janus got screwed.

I'm a little unclear on what qualifies as a multi-gen game. Would that be a series that spans across many years (and thus, generations of gamers), or simply across many systems?

For example, would Armored Core or Prince of Persia count?

It's a game franchise that spans multiple console generations.

Hmm, my reviews lack gimmicks and stuff anyway. So, I guess I'll write a normal review for anything...

Alright. I can do that. Just a question, a "game not seen" on this site means the game not in the database, or a game that's got no reviews on this site made for it yet?

Awesome. I have one lined up already! (and it just barely makes the cut! =D)

I think I got the easiest one, haha.

Doing some research, I'm finding I owned more licenced games than I initially thought. I never really think of Goldeneye as such, but I won't be reviewing that. Sam & Max was based off a comic book... could do that. I've completed the game a few times. And then there's still that stack of Star Wars games I own. So many choices!

Dark Eternal, to answer your question, I believe True means a game that hasn't been reviewed yet at HG.

I've got a couple candidates for games people haven't heard of... difficult for me, since I don't have a ROM emulator. But would any of these work:

Evil Zone
Liquid Wars
Hugo's House of Horrors

I wouldn't worry about DE being able to find an obscure game.

Zippy D, to answer your question . . . "review a game that few people have heard of" is very subjective. Obviously it's implausible to poll people to see if those three choices you listed fit the criteria. I'm guessing those three would fit, though. Maybe True will elaborate.

Ha ha, EMP, I was talking about MY requirements! DE is on his own!

Thanks, Felix, I'll assume they'll work.

People should show concern over DE more. He's all foreign and is prone to hilarious sports injuries.

In order to elaborate, or perhaps clarify.

To my surprise, Fallout 3 has not actually been reviewed--at least for the PS3--on this site, and several other popular games along with it. When I picked the "review a game not previously chosen on this site" I was hoping to steer it more towards games that could be well-known, just not reviewed.

As far as Zippy D goes, I'll make another reference. I am probably the only person who is old enough to remember this, but it was a little known bonus that if you turned the Sega Master System on without a cart it would give you the blank screen for a while. Though, if you waited you could start a game built into the system, where you played a snail eeking his way through mazes before time ran out. When I picked the "game few people have heard of" I was more looking for a game that isn't widely popular--like Fighting Warrior, Little Britain or some game called Grand Theft Auto. Kidding, but games along the lines of those first two would be suitable. Chances are if neither Felix or I have heard of it, you'll do fine.

In that case, I give you Evil Zone

It might change if I end up writing one of the other mentioned reviews.

Okay, question: When you say I have to review a genre I've never attempted before, is that only counting my HG backlog, or are we counting my GameFAQs reviews, too?

Here or there. It has to be something you've never, ever done before.
