It was a pretty skirmish, and many passages were wounded, even broken... but my review and submission for this contest arrived successfully!

Valkyria Chronicles for Steam

Now, on to the next quarry...

Tried doing one more # review before the deadline, but I don't want to force out a sloppy review. Also was really contemplating using my 404Sight review, but I decided to go with my 88 Heroes one.

And I was all impressed with myself spelling Valkyria correctly when I started its review...

Standards, I suppose.

When I stumble around to Q, I actually picked up a copy of Q.U.B.E. in the the summer steam sale.

Well, better hunting next time? Not like you're a slacker...

Btw, thanks for approving my review of Ninja Gaiden. :)

Are we supposed to indicate which of our reviews is for AlphaOlympics?

If so, mine is here.

My Legend of Zelda review is going nowhere, but here's an intro as proof I tried:

Spare me your hot take on whether The Legend of Zelda has stood the test of time; you’re the same ignoramus that quit after the first hour back in 1987. Dodongo dislikes smoke, so how about setting that trusted strategy guide on fire? While the market has expanded to include even you – weak-willed, meme-thrilled, unskilled – trust me, you’re still not welcome in this guild.

Then yada yada adventure, context and contrast to previous games to prove significance that I didn't have time to research, sidebar on how good that musical hook is, IT'S A SECRET TO EVERYONE, remember the rain reference to make sure Marc hates it, five stars out.

At least you tried. I bought a game beginning with Q and didn't play it.

That was a great wind up. Too bad about the follow-through... don't give up. Sometimes a review takes time to percolate. I usually write mine in one sitting, but my Cosmic Star Heroine review took two days.

That's the way it goes. Maybe try a different tack?

I've got two written up (haven't had a lot of time or motivation until now). Know it doesn't sound like much, but I hope to have it done by the end of this long weekend.

Well, turns out I was overly ambitious (shocker). It takes me about half an hour to read and write up a response to one review, and I only have one or two hours in the morning of the weekend to do this, if that, so I haven't gotten very far. I'm not sure how much I'll get done next weekend, either, as I have company coming over, but we'll see.

OK. I've finally finished judging. Sorry this took so long.

Cool - mail me through the results and I'll start putting everything together.

Don;t worry about the timeframe - thanks for doing it

So, remember when this was a thing!

It's not forgotten. Masters has had a few issues which has meant he's had to possibly drop out, though he hopes to still pull something out. So I've been trying to rope in someone else to judge the results and, while I've found someone willing, they've not really written a lot. But, I dunno, I guess they might surprise me.

The search continues - remind me of of all this next time I bust a tourney out from deep freeze, please.

I have stepped in to take on judging duties. Considered yourselves totally judged.
