    He killed me with a sword. How weird is that? 16 Jun 2009 01:16:21

    I'll wait on a X360 until I feel that there's enough games on it for me to justifiably get it--it's the same thought process that went into me getting a PS3. And besides, many of the games for the 360 end up being ported to PS3, like BioShock. So far, nothing catches my eye.

    Now, the question is this: have you played the previous Fallout titles?

    I can certainly see why the use of the "silent hero" is annoying, especially now. By today's gaming standards, it is so heavily outdated, but you have to look at a game like Chrono Trigger in the context of when it was originally made, back during a time when the silent hero was the norm for epic RPGs. I mean, some of the remakes Square has done fixes the problem, like actually giving dialogue to the main hero. I particularly enjoyed the plot, especially as you get deeper into the game. And in some series, the silent hero still sort of works, like in the Dragon Quest series. What about other silent heroes who don't utter any dialogue, like Link or Mario?

    Hey, Magus! Long time no see--glad to see you're still around. Thanks for the feedback. I have to agree--this contest was one of the rare ones that followed a normal (more or less) way of going through the brackets--hardly any upsets, and more shocking, no tiebreakers.

    I decided on Kingdom Hearts as the next theme because it's a wildly popular series. The first KH game came out in 2002, so I could certainly see the idea that it's a kid's series--the first KH game came out when I was 16. However, at least with me, there are people my age now, in their mid-20s who still love the series and have every intention of getting the new KH game for the DS in September, myself included. Since you say you know the characters in KH, I hope you end up participating in the next contest--it's been a while since you last joined. I am planning some changes for the next one.

    It really doesn't matter. It could be multiple FROGs or just 1. Although I couldn't find a pic containing multiples.

    No prob, I will supply you with all the material you will need. Basically, I give everyone a copy of the agenda, the battle results, and leaderboard--and then basically, it's open commentary and wit interspersed throughout.

    Battles will close around 7:30 PM EDT, can we shoot for an 8 PM ET start? That would make it midnight or 1 AM GMT on your end...
