I am WOEFULLY behind on my Lufia: Ruins of Lore progress! Chalk it up to me doing a lot of in-office work, finalizing what's been an ungodly long dissolution from my ex-wife (where she finally signed the fucking papers today after over a year!) and partying a lot with it being my birthday this week (Wednesday, for those of you wishing to send me belated gifts).
But never fear! I got a friend's birthday tomorrow, so we'll be partying all day then, but I will be using a good chunk o' next week to ensure that this is the year I finally win this tournament! Or stab Blu in the neck for being the "sudden-death" judge that awarded EmP the tiebreaker vote over me last year, preventing me from meeting my true destiny! Or, even better, do both!
I have a foolproof plan.
STEP ONE: Focus more on the game so that even if I haven't beat it when it comes time to write my review, I still will have experienced enough to have a vast array of experiences to talk about in my review.
STEP TWO: Write a kickass review (ie: one where I don't use variations of the word "experience" twice in the same sentence like I did in describing my first step).
STEP THREE: Wait for the glowing critiques and really high scores given to me by the judges.
STEP FOUR: Make a half-hearted attempt at humility with the obligatory thanking of the judges and other competitors before boasting for 15 paragraphs about how not even the gods themselves can stop me now.
Simple, yet foolproof.

Huh, based on your outline, I give the review a 95/100.

Good luck, buddy. If anyone deserves a big win, it's you.
Which is why it's going to be heartbreaking when I beat you like I usually do. I'm pulling for you, though, man!

Seeing as how I saw no step involving the bribing of judges, you are screwed.

My plan is a little different:
Step 1: Eat a stick of butter.
Step 2: Write something while listening to Jedi Mind Tricks.
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Profit!!

Genjuro, I think you should dip your stick of butter into some Crisco prior to eating it.

I will. Then I'll deep fry it.

That might be more disgusting than deep fat fried Snickers bar.
