There was a time, back before I let other people come up with odd colour-coded tourneys and review writing contest about not writing a review, when you had simply one month, one unbreakable criteria your keyboard and a videogame. We’re going back to those simple days. But with an EmP twist.

It’s bloody May (almost). You’ve forgotten what May is, and you’re all twits for doing so. But I’m here to save the day. May, then, is the Month of the Obscure.

Welcome to MOTO2.

Here, we give thanks to the games you’ve never heard of, from the PSX Tunguska to pretty much everything released on the N64DD. Here, the 32X holds masterful power over the PS2, the wonderswan sits on a throne of chibi anime statuettes and that Brazil-only Master System brawler demands your attention. You, the overall populace, have ignored their tiny pleading voices and now I make you take note.

You are to write a review. A review for a game no one has ever heard of.

And game choice is vital. Vital! Not only will our judge panel be marking your writing out of 100 as usual, but they have 10 extra points to distribute or destroy as they please! Go for a Turbo CD Japan import that’s only had three physical versions released? Score up to 110. Go with Sonic III instead? Ten points off, you slave to commercialism!

Careful, now -- here comes another twist.

The world of the obscure is a slippery slope, greased with regret and linger disappointment. Government heath warnings suggest you do not partake such a dangerous path alone, so you will do battle in a bonded team of two. You and partner’s completed scores will be combined and the highest coupling walk away smug and victorious.

NEEDED: Judges.

DARED: Combatants

I, Overdrive, am a noted reviewer of obscure games. I have a certain knowledge of stuff about them.

I therefore am a qualified judge of people's attempts to review games they......think are obscure.

Overdrive shall judge!

I'm both intruigued and willing to participate. I'm sure I can find some random Japanese title that hasn't been covered.

The game I was thinking of reviewing is on a system so obscure that it's not even on this site! Yes, I still have a working VECTREX!

I may dust it off and review a game for it.

Now that you mention it, I was just going to pick a Commodore 64 review off my stack but why not be more interesting and hook up my Sega Master, which I bought 4 years ago at a flea market and never even tried?

Or...ooh, I have an even better idea. You'll see, if it works out.

EmP, put the Vectrex on the site please. I ask you because this doesn't seem to concern HGWars, so Venter isn't the one to ask. I think you're more capable. :)

Jason doesn't trust me enough to give that much access to the website. Frankly, I don't blame him.

If I see him before he reads this, I'll give him a nudge.

I'm going to find a game for this and play it and then either review it or get lazy and do nothing.

Without a stable emulator, the most obscure title in my collection is probably Neon Genesis Evangelion for the N64. And this site already has a review for it. The only other things that leap to mind are some old PC games... and incedentally, my PC doesn't like me.

I wouldn't mind judging, though!

Actually... wait a minute... I COULD review Knarf's House. I bet no-one here has ever heard of Knarf's House. That's because I'm one of maybe six people who actually played the game back when it was released on floppy with old school pixel graphics.

I could probably also review Think Quick. But I'd have to play it again. It wasn't near as memorable as the loveable Knarf's House.

Guess I'll throw my name in here, too. Though I just reviewed the most obscure game in my collection that I can do anything decent with, so.... yeah.

...if this even goes anywhere that is. So far turnout looks kind of miserable. =/ Which is really quite sad.

Even though I originaly came to spam videos of boy-on-boy handjobs, I, too agree that you're all slackers.
