I can't recall. Do you like FFVII, Suskie?

A clever tribute. Color me intrigued. Assuming I can put something together by the deadline, count me in.

Procrastinated too much on this one, so I won't be competing. Looking epic so far though, and good luck to the contestants.

Well, to be honest, I had my heart set on Breath of Fire IV -- and I knew I could of marathoned the game, but never have I gotten a headache from a video game like this. That isometric camera is demonic. Just couldn't pull through. In fact, I hardly ever get headaches from gaming, period -- the only other time was probably playing through the mess that was Resident Evil 5.

5 hours in and BoFIV wasn't even bad, it was just physically damaging me =[

I've got a review coming within the next day or so.

I also recommend you do Koudelka, Suskie.

I have entered

We have until Monday, right? In case I start rapidly editing things for various reasons.

Didn't realize the deadline was this soon. However, I have been playing the game I want to review. It was one McFadden actually recommended specifically to me. I put it off for a bit but finally got around to it. I never reviewed it at GameFAQs.

Good to see someone is entering ahead of time. That's motivation for me...

Edit: entered.

Alright, damn... that took me way longer than I thought it would. I think it took me longer to write the review than to play the entire game. Anyway, as soon as it's approved, I'll link it in this post.

I'll be linking it RIGHT HERE in capital letters.

I was going to do a review too, but never got around to it. Haven't had the chance to play the game, as well.

Even though I'll miss the contest deadline, I'll likely do a review for Penguin regardless.

I'm in the same way as Pickhut. I would've done something for this, but I've been really busy with other commitments (both to the site and elsewhere), so I just didn't have time to show up. However, I still want to write something for this anyway, even if I do miss out on the prize (which I really don't care about that much anyway).

Add me to the I've Been Busy Lately list. I was actually going to make a last-minute stab at it but today was particularly rough at work.

I was just gonna review FFVII anyway, so I'm not going to pretend I would've won.

Damn it. I've been way too busy with other stuff the past couple of weeks, but I managed to churn out a Metroid II review tonight. I submitted it about twelve minutes before midnight. Is it too late for the deadline?

It's okay if I missed it. This was for Psycho Penguin's sake, not the contest itself.

It's eligible. I saw it in the queue and I have approved it, so post the link in the topic. Otherwise, that's it for contest entries.

I just realized, but we basically put together a nostalgia death squad with our reviews. The exception is Overdrive who actually liked the game he went back to play. That makes him like the "smalls" of the group. Or maybe the benevolent traitor who gets the girl in the end.

For my own convenient reference (and possibly yours), here is a list of the reviews eligible for this contest, in the approximate order in which they were submitted. I'll be writing up my impressions of each review, ranking them, and posting the results thread over the next few days. Barring unexpected delays, you'll all know who won the contest around this time next week and I'll contact the winner to send the prize shortly thereafter.

Legaia 2: Duel Saga (PS2) by Sise-Neg

Final Fantasy X (PS2) by overdrive

Circus Caper (NES) by aschultz

ActRaiser (Super Nintendo) by zippdementia

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns (Atari 2600) by JoeTheDestroyer

Blaster Master 2 (Genesis) by EmP

Metroid II: Return of Samus (Game Boy) by disco

Thanks for your patience, everyone! Most of the days I suffered through these last few weeks have been among the busiest and most stressful of my freelance career--mostly because money hadn't been showing up and it was hard to see how I would continue to eat and pay for health insurance and utilities and rent--but a check arrived today and (predictably) that has me feeling a lot better and stumbling back toward normal ahead of the holiday weekend. I'm actually going through the reviews right now and I may have a results topic posted sometime this afternoon or evening. Once I announce the winner, I'll send an HG Mail to that individual to verify the PayPal email address, so whoever winds up winning... check for that!
