B: Bard's Tale 2(NES)
C: Champions of Krynn
D: Defenders of (the) Dynatron City
E: Esper Dream
G: Gegege no Kitaro 2
H: Hoosier City: Return to Oil City
L: Lutter
M: Miner
P: Power Soukoban(should be up shortly)
S: Secret of the Silver Blades
T: (Taxman, extensive rewrite) I think I will be writing for the IIgs's Tower of Myraglen soon, rendering any rewriting rules moot.
U: (The) Usurper: Mines of Qyntarr.

I'm assuming leading "The's" don't count. If they don't, I have ammo to spare. Oh yes.

13 may not seem like TOO much, but several are imminent. I have targeted games for all letters. They're actual, real, good, interesting games. Others may have superior numbers at the moment, but I have a plan!

And it goes above and beyond deluging Suskie with 20 reviews ported from GameFAQs. Strictly to ask the captain's opinion on which to use next in the team tourney, of course.

I demand updation! I am at 16 letters, and besting Suskie at the moment, thank you very much!

Sixteen now.

A: Airball
B: Bard's Tale 2(NES)
C: Champions of Krynn
D: Defenders of (the) Dynatron City
E: Esper Dream
G: Gegege no Kitaro 2
H: Hoosier City: Return to Oil City
J: Jawbreaker 2(I think Joshua would've been a much better game to write for. I've been trying to avoid cheap Apple games unless they're relatively historic and even then I try to write a FAQ so that I'm not just reviewing for a letter.)
K: Knight Lore
L: Lutter
M: Miner
N: Number Munchers (No, I won't be writing reviews for Fraction/Word Munchers once/if those games are in the database. That'd be cheap. But I do have guides and amusing screenshots.)
P: Power Soukoban
S: Secret of the Silver Blades
U: (The) Usurper: Mines of Qyntarr
V: Valkyrie no Bouken etc blah argghh

#, Q, Y, and Z still have me a bit baffled.

Also, I have both T and U games to write, and I'm not sure if the leading "The" counts. I suspect it doesn't, as when libraries alphabetize books, but can we make an extra clarification?

It doesn't count. Otherwise my "The Way of the Samurai" review wouldn't have nabbed me that "W"

I was going to start posting in this because thanks to the TT, I've actually written three reviews this year.

three reviews for Metroid Fusion, Metal Slug 4, and Metal Gear Solid 2.

fuck all of you.

Hey, what am I still doing hanging out with Overdrive? I demand to be moved up to 17! We don't associate with such riff-raff as OD, here.

Are "we" talking about that lowly riff-raff who kindly busted a cap in yo' ass just a couple of short weeks ago during some hotly-contested one-on-one Team Tournament battle? I just want to be sure. There's so much riff-raff around the world that I struggle to keep all of them straight.

YEAH! Who feels like riff-raff now? Now excuse me while I bask in the warm glow of my ego for the next few hours.

Wait a minute, OD... what are you doing bantering in here with me? Don't you have an ROTW to write?

It's IN. THE. WORKS.

(ie: get out of office in a bit, buy groceries, eat lunch and then either do RotW or take nap and then do RotW......not tired now, but lunch might make me tired.....that sort of thing does happen in my world)

I'm at 18 now. Only 9 letters to go. It's nearly October, so that would be 3 reviews each for the remaining months of the year. U is gonna be covered by Uncharted 2, but Y... J? J could very well be Jeanne D'arc.

...so.... have you given up on this, too, then?

You haven't even updated yourself in a while. And even when you were, I'd updated myself to no avail. Can't really speak for the others, but it really doesn't look like things haven't moved much even though I know more letters have been filled (i.e. I think Suskie's winning again).

I'm at 7 anyway.

Given up? No. As I said, I'm not updating things until people post their progress. I'm not about to randomly trawl through the topic continiously in the off chance someone's updated their table on page 2 or whatnot.

And Suskie's going for a stealth win. Shh -- don't let on you know!

Fair enough; though I do remember at least one occasion where I updated that I was at six specifically as you prefer we do, and the list still wasn't updated. Likewise, I'm sure others have posted ina similar fashion before, though none recently, so that's kind of a bad example. =p

Still, sometimes you miss. It's like I said when you made this topic:

"I think you should add another sentence in that rule about updating: 'And even if you do post your tally regularly, I may not update it without continuous nagging.'" =P hahaha.

Entry updated now that I have some letters that aren't S.

H is for Hearts of Iron III
K is for King's Bounty
R is for Restaurant Empire 2
S is for Space Quest 1, Supreme Ruler 2020, Supreme Ruler 2020: Global Crisis, Sword of the Stars, and Sins of a Solar Empire: Entrenchment, Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, and Space War Commander (phew).

Do I get bonus points for having the most titles for a single letter?

No bonus points, will. Besides, we're tied in that regard. I have reviewed seven games starting with the letter 'S,' as well, and I think I've come close on a few other letters. :-)

I'm up to 5, EmP, if you'd like to edit the list (and get rid of the patronising !!!)

Alright.... 18... for the... third time... update... me... now...

I don't know how much further I'll get. What with school and everything, I'd be happy to hit 20. Anyways, god knows what I was going to play for Q. And I'll be damned if I have to touch Xenogears again.

EDIT: Oh... wait... I already got X...
