Another year, another competition. I took home the gold last year, but I doubt I'll be doing so this year. As it is, I'm spitting out maybe one or two reviews per month, so some of you prolific folk could easily win the title belt this year.

Same rules apply:

1) Only reviews posted here count. For instance, no linking to reader reviews from N4G, Metacritic or GameFAQs.

1a) Reader, freelance and staff reviews all count. We don't discriminate.

2) Only original and completely rewritten reviews count. No deleting old reviews and reposting them, or copy and pasting reviews that are posted on other sites. You can, however, completely revamp an old review from head to toe, but it must be resubmitted.

3) And this is the important one: only reviews linked in this thread count towards your final score. If you write a review for a Fate/Stay Night game and forget to hyperlink it in your post, then it shall not count towards your score.

Now, let the game begin.

I'm in it again this year. I never seem to win or even finish, but maybe 2017 will be my year!

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

I'll give this a shot. I produced 21 reviews last year, not including some articles I posted onto my blog. I might be able to hit 27 if I push myself. Somehow I doubt I'll win, but maybe I can give ya'll a run for your money. :)

Says the Pro. Is that a challenge? I read that like a challenge.

"I'm looking for a challenge!" Stinkoman.

Blasted flu. And Buckleys.

Too much buckleys.
