Sign ups are officially closed, except they’re not. Late signees can grab themselves up a spare letter anytime untl the end of this tourney, but in arriving late and avoiding the Gods of Random, they will lose TEN POINTS from their total score.

Want to trade your letter for something else? This I will allow. But at great cost. Any trade undertaken from your initial letter will cost the writer TEN POINTS from their total score.

The submission date is 25th June. You have until then to write you review, sub it to site and then inform us of you entry here. Wherein you will be added to this list. This action will cost you NO POINTS.

I open the floor to desperate negotiations and enraged cursing.


For us. For them. For you.

So it's either Quake, Quattro Arcade or a puzzle game for me.

I'm even (still) playing a game starting with E. This could work out! Or not.

Can I trade my "N" for "M"? Those letters are basically right beside each other. There's hardly any phonetic difference between the two anyway. And nobody's claimed "M".

Sorry, but James Bond beat you to it!

Ah, S, the mightiest letter in the alphabet.

Doesn't line up with anything I'm currently playing, but I certainly have options.

Damnit, Bond gets all the good stuff.

You know what, I withdraw my request. I found the perfect "N" game to review after all.

O isn't a bad draw as I'm currently playing an O game, but it's not really tourney tier. This'll require some thought.

I don't want to review John Cena's Sexy High School Adventure. Thus I trade my letter and absorb the 10 point penalty, but that's ok because I'll score 120. I give up J for Jody and take M for Michael.

I want you folks to take note- seven years ago I wrote that review and we still gettin' an alt-account in reference to it. Just so everyone knows who they fuckin' with here.

Here's to you, Jedward, you crazy son of a bitch.

I may write a review for the pixel adventure game Qora.

In other news, I may regret the above decision...

At first I thought... "ah crap I've got like two 'V' titled games in my library", but I was wrong by three. Five isn't much of a selection, but three stand out games are among them: Victory at Sea, Volume and Valkyrie Chronicles. Not sure what VOI is, and I'm pretty much rubbish at fighting games, so Vanguard Princess is out. Too much panty flash anyway.

Better get started if I plan to finish any of those three some time soon...

All I'm thinking now is how glad I am that I didn't get "Q".

I got F, and I was going to review a particularly bad looking game on the PS2 called Falling Stars. I played two minutes and immediately regretted every moment of my life up until that point.

Thankfully, I discovered the obscure, Japan and Europe-only SNES gem The Firemen.

I've had to cheat a bit here, because my whole shtick was re-reviewing a game a decade later with fresh perspective, but it turns out that quite sensibly you can't review the same game twice. So I've created a new profile and submitted from that - hope that's okay! Will post here when approved.

And here it is: a return to Yume Nikki, in what I suppose someone with questionable judgement may call a 'review':

Here is my review, squeaking in shortly ahead of the deadline because I didn't want everyone to feel discouraged by what a glorious piece of writing they would be up against. Yeah, that's it.

Titan's Tower (Wii U)
