Are you just linking to random shit? Also, are you going to ignore the Duel of the Blogs between me and Mento?

Posted by Mento

@Video_Game_King: To be fair, all we've done so far are introductory blogs. Maybe he's saving it for next week when we're knee-deep in our 3rd edition feuding.

Thanks for featuring another ridiculous list of mine, ZP. It's brand new so I'm impressed you caught it in time.

@Mento: @Video_Game_King: I want to post it when there are enough parts to it where it's not just intro blogs. Also both of you got a name drop out side of your faux competition. 
Also pauper, I'm filling a complaint to the FDA that your blogs cause birth defects.

It's not an addiction I can stop any time I want!

Thanks for spotlighting Oscar and my little sister's list (a bit unexpected)! My little sister does influence me on video games and anime, and I'm just there to promote her love on these pages (most of it).

Ohh, a palindrome list! All right, I'm such a nerd...

Edited by EuanDewar

I'm going to thank you for including me in the only way I know how.

Thanks ZP!

Thanks for including my Rise of NIghtmares review! I really enjoyed the game, even though it was kind of horrible. I'd also like to plug my blog The Weekend Bender, in which I attempt to find every game that was released over the past week and give them all a one to two paragraph review, for consideration next time. Here are the links to weeks one, two, three, and four.

Anyways, thanks again and mad props to everyone else who made it in this week :)

How would that work? You kill a cow, then bring it back to life, then kill it again, and then pie-ify it?

@Video_Game_King: The process takes longer than making crude oil so don't expect any anytime soon.

Could use some suggestions about Wikis and user lists for this week.

I have a really stupid idea for a list (when are they ever not) I can whip up in about ten minutes. Gimme a sec.

Edit: Okay, here. I'm so sorry everyone.

Shit! I forgot to mention my two blogs! But I got here just in time, so fret not.

I've been working on this for a while. I'm probably gonna get a lot of flak for this, but hey, I've still got a while to go before I'm really satisfied that the article can usurp people's opinion of it.
