Well, the moment we've all been waiting for is here. There was enough interest to announce the letter assignments today, and for this I am grateful to everyone who showed desire in participating. Below you will see the letter that corresponds to your number.

The deadline for this contest will be SUNDAY MARCH 18 at 11:59 p.m. HG TIME. This will give you one month to review a game starting with your corresponding letter.

There are 4 letters left open. If anyone wishes to sign in late, they are welcome to pick one of the remaining letters. There will be a slight point deduction for late entries, however, because their picks are not random.

A maximum of 5 trades will be allowed for this year's tournament. However, you cannot trade with spare letters, only each other. A slight point deduction (the same for late entries) will be deducted for trades.

espiga & his cat
Jerec

J.

Well, the thing I like most about this tournament is the challenge of picking a game to go with your letter, so in a way, I've already won!

Could be worse. It seems there's actually a game called X.

I'd like to think that it was fate that the Random List Generator chose "E" for you.

Got it. My review should go up as soon as the game is added to the database.

Well, I had a few letters that might get a new review, and this was one of them.

I would have snickered like an eight-year-old if you had responded with "You're in," EmP.

Wow, Jason. That was almost too sophisticated for me. But now I'm snickering, too.

Question: Could I do The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass since I have P?

Broader question: Would alternate or foreign titles be acceptable to use or does it have to be its exact given name?

(I don't actually want to do Phantom Hourglass, it's just an example)

Starts with L, since Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is the name it's listed by.

I'm no judge, but I would say Foreign titles only count if the game was never released under an English title or if the original title had significant play differences.

Best letter I think I've ever drawn. Exciting!

This is not going well.

I sold Xena Warrior Princess and don't intend to buy it again.
Xenosaga Episode 1 I don't like and can't get far with.
Xenogears I played years ago and don't have the time to replay it.
Xekkusu I obtained and attempted to play, but the lack of much information about it and the fact it's in Japanese has halted any progress.

Tested out a few iPad games that you won't have in the database and are not worth reviewing:

Any suggestions for X games? (And don't bother with anything X-men!)

Unless I could change X for a Q. I do have a lovely Q game I've beaten recently!


Don't panic!
