    Huge thank you to FrozenBablyon for running such a great and frantic event! I honestly can say that was a ton of fun and it helped me (and I'm sure others) make some dents in their backlogs. Hopefully this event will get ran again, because I know I still have another 90ish games sitting and waiting to be completed. :P

    I'm so glad that everybody enjoyed it! Sorry about not updating yet, I was sick over the weekend and only really played Tomb Raider. Haha. I'll finish this up tonight and get everything up once I get home from work!

    And I plan on running this every year from here on out. Regardless of if I have a backlog myself or not!

    I'm just so happy that it went so well!

    So, April is annual backlog month? Yeah, that works. April and May are usually light months anyway, and by June you're in E3 and looking ahead to new games.

    I did so poorly. I was hoping to get all of my RPGs beaten before I picked up Riptide, maybe even finish off some RPGs I haven't gotten back to (still haven't finished Vesperia or Skyrim). Instead all I got done was Spartan Ops and that wasn't much fun at all. Oh, well. At least I got to level up a Monk in WoW.

    Hooray for future incarnations!

    It was definitely a lot of fun. Petered out a bit at the end through unwise game choices but still managed to knock out a bunch of stuff overall. Thanks for running it FB.

    I'm definitely down in doing this again. I know I have about 10 PS3 games waiting for me at Chris', and while I'll slug through some this year, it's nice to know if I don't I can set aside a specific time to do so.

    Aww, so close... Should have finished the other commander keen series and tied it up. :) But... Bioshock infinite is worth it.

    Good job Nyx, and thanks to FB for running the contest. It was an interesting way to look at gaming for me, even though it did distract me from a couple games I wanted to work on.

    Not going to lie, I wasn't expecting to dominate both... I figured kazriko had me in the metagame. Seriously though, you're all awesome competitors and thank you so much for running this again. <3
