Oh no. It's the end of the world.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

haha, one of these days I'll not be too lazy to edit in the (few) reviews I've done.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

I need to do two more H reviews -- for the Half-Life 2 episodes -- and then I swear I'll move on to a different letter.

I have 11 now. I love how EmP's only (independently?) updating the list for the top four or five placers. <_<

Most of the guys up the top are staff, so can edit the scores as they progress.

I asked for people to post to say when they had new games up, otherwise it's a huge pain to keep up with the scores!


For us. For them. For you.

That's the thing, EmP. I did post in here updatting my score once... twice, even, before I nagged you on AIM about it. >_> But at least that answers the "biased updating" question.

12 for me now, in any case.

21 letters for me. Though you could probably tack on 22 with what I have planned in the next week.

Alright, let's see what I've done in the couple of months I've been here...

A is for Assassin's Creed
B is for Bionic Commmando (REarmed)
C is for Chrono Trigger DS
D is for Dead Space
E is for Everyday Shooter
F is for Far Cry 2
G is for Grand Theft Auto IV
H is for Home (does this count?)
I is for Iron Tank: The Invasion of Normandy
J
K
L is for The Longest Journey
M is for Metal Gear Solid IV
N
O
P is for PAIN
Q
R
S is for Soul Calibur IV
T
U
V
W
X is for Xargon
Y
Z is for Zack and Wiki

So 15/26 so far. I have some of the other letters filled in (like Red Steel and Wii Sports) but I can't honorably claim them, since I wrote them last year. In the next week I plan on getting Wii Play (very belated) and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories up, so I should have 17 by the end of the year. Odin Sphere might bring me to 18. I'd love to have up Valkyria Chronicles, but it's a slow game at the best of times, and I haven't played it in a week...

And that, kids, is 27. I said I'd win this thing -- further proof that EmP is always right.

Ego-inflation aside, I like how this one played out. I beat the thing with a scant five days to go and, at recent count, it has been the catalyst for 16 of the reviews i've written this year. My plan with this was to give me reason to write reviews I otherwise may not have, and it's obviously done its job.

There's still time for someone else to join me across the finishing line.

I'm fairly confident I'll get one more letter in thanks to Janus' contest.

But despite not winning or even hitting my objective, I really liked this idea. It should be an annual thing (if you weren't already planning that). I know I reviewed a couple of games solely for the purpose of getting another letter.....and no, they weren't all 2KB Atari 2600 reviews).

Oh, sure. Only update yourself why don't you.

Good job, though. I don't know how the hell you found the time. I'm probably not going to write anything else the rest of the year. I'm not really in a writing mood. But I'll take second place anyway especially since this thing made me write more reviews than I ever had before.

The end of the year is recorded late is now, and the final points are tallied. Only one person could win, and it was always going to be me, like I said at the start, but good job to those that took part. Special kudos go to WQ for almost making it to the finishing line and to Zipp for a valiant late charge. Wooden spoon to OD. As usual.

I am a man of infinite mercy. I will shortly allow you another shot to take my throne.
