The spammers are more active posters than we are!

It's sad how true that actually is.

Over the past few days, we've had a lot more people coming to the site. Nearly twice the regular amount and there's a chance that it'll even be sustained, not the result of a brief spike that dies away almost as fast as it began. If that's the case, then we might see more spam around here regularly, but hopefully more new users engaged in the community, as well.

For the first time ever, it seems the mods actually have to moderate the forums :P

I've slowed down a bit. I have a Resi5 Review coming, though. Also, I really SHOULD get to work on an Odin's Sphere review. And Fear Effect will come as well.

I've got plans.

I'm already doubling up on letters. This is quite the thorn in my side.
Luckily my next letter is... oh good, another S.

Don't worry, EmP. It's the same here. I have something like four games I'll soon be reviewing and I think I gain maybe one letter, at most. And I've already doubled up on several this year as it is.

Not me! I've got three new letters coming in the next few weeks.

I know what you mean about doubling up letters. So far, I'm averaging one "L" review a month. And the main game I'm playing at the moment in Lost Odyssey, so that trend should continue through April!

But I did add a new letter today!

Now that yet another S is out of the way I have... A C and a B. Both letters I already have covered.

Crap.

EDIT: C is down on the same day!

There's an R out of the way. next up is.... another B and another G. Great.

I will have an incoming D if my PC can run it. My money is on "it can't".

You don't have it as bad as I do, EmP. I just covered Wanted: Weapons of Fate, which amazingly is the second consecutive 'W' game for me and doesn't help my tally at all. Plus, here's my lineup of forthcoming reviews:

PopCap Arcade Vol. 2 = P (already covered)
Dragon Quest V = D (already covered)
Dokapon Journey = D (already covered)
My World, My Way = M (already covered)
Star Ocean: Second Evolution = S (already covered)
Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume = V (not covered!)

As you'll see, ONE of those gains me a letter. Out of 6. Not a particularly hefty percentage, especially considering that I actually haven't even covered that many letters yet (my count is at 8, despite already reviewing 15 games this year). How is it that almost every game I get to review starts with one of the few same letters?

What's more, there are two more games I might wind up reviewing and only one of those two would add another letter. Over the course of a given year, it seems like 1 in 3 or 4 games goes toward my count. That's just how it goes for us folks who review the most because we're scrambling to cover the games we receive to review.

If people can't come in ahead of me in this thing, they clearly weren't very careful with their choices of games to review, or they didn't review more than a few games the whole year.

Foolish ZigFIEND! Your review count last year probably didn't even hit double figures! Let alone reach the heady heights only soared by EmP!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to grow a handlebar 'tash so I may twirl it. Evily.
