Good things happen in September. This is stone cold fact and one that I plan to celebrate in atypical fashion. Like Christmas, millions of people look forward to the Month of the Obscure but, unlike Xmas, Iím not bankrupt buying shoes the month isnít set to dissuade greedy corporations from making untold profit. This year, September is the new Month of the Obscure. This is great news for forgotten Gameboy carts and bargain bins everywhere.

For MOTO, the aim is simple. You and a partner go out and discover the most forgotten and cobweb strewn game you can find, and then you review it in front of a panel of cranky judges whoíll yell at you in slightly differing tones of disappointment. Not only will your efforts be judges out of 100, but the judges will have the patented sliding scale where they can award -- or deduct -- up to 10 additional points depending on the rarity of your title. FFX? -10 points. Obscure sheep hoarding game released only in Estonia? +10! Bitch slap conformity -- bitch slap it good! Itís the only way itíll learn.

Questions, applications and kooky individuals volunteering for judge spots can do so below. Not doing so is a kick in the balls for the little guy. You Donít hate the little guy, do you?

As the best obscure game dude in the history of obscure game dudes, it would be a travesty if I had no involvement here. I'll fill either judge or participant role, depending on what is needed.

I would be happy to judge. I don't think I have anything too obscure around right now. Lost in Blue, maybe but I feel that's only a +2 at best.

Sign me up as a maybe.

If I can find something obscure enough and if I manage not to break my PC once I install my sexy new video card.

Espiga, you and I partnered up for this last year and then you ditched me. I remember that, chump.

I have an obscure game, and I can make up the numbers if there's an odd man out.

All the games you own are obscure, A-Man.

Depending on numbers, I may turn this back into a single man/WQ event rather than pairs.

You'll know as soon as I decide, but feel free to start chatting up potential tag partners.

I did? FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Sorry. ; ;

My life likes to randomly enter and exit tumultuous times, and my activity here reflects the calmer moments. If it puts your mind at ease just a little bit, I only signed on as a MAYBE this year! (and I just posted a review)

Haha, I don't actually care. They paired me with someone else who didn't have a partner and I didn't have a good game for the competition anyway. Turns out the judges couldn't be fooled into thinking award-winning Half-Life 2 mods are obscure.

Felix said he'd join as my partner if this is a duo thing, but if it isn't, he won't.

This could be a dumb idea (inspired by this topic, so blame EmP), but imagine if there was a contest where you'd have to write a review cooperatively with another person? Like, roughly a 50:50 word split.

...It made more sense in my head.

I studied the other MOTOs so if you need another judge I'd be happy to help.
