In order to prove how serious I am in the Support AATG and yourselves thread:

Anyone that contributes a published article within the next month (up until 14th March) will be elligible to win a free game of their choice (upto 50 in value - no piss taking and asking for Samba De Amigo new and sealed).

And to make things interesting, I want you all collectively to decide on the prize winner. I'm sure we'll iron out how this works over time, but with any luck I'll be able to do this every month.

So your time starts now. Email me your article to hairyarse at allaboutthegames.net and once it's been published, post the link in here. Then come the 15th of March we'll take a vote on the best/funniest/most entertaining article and the winner will receive said prize.

Is "boring everyone to death" (thus preventing anyone else from writing and submitting competing articles) a valid tactic?

I'm warning you now. I've just started writing some shite about cartridges being superior to disks, so if any of you are retarded enough to be planning something similar, then stop right now because yours will be shit, and mine will be the springboard to a new career. So fuck off.

I'm gonna have to be harsh dude and say no.

One because no one reads the news and two because we can get away with writing only 100 words for a news article!

Well I didn't literally mean no-one. Bah you know what I meant.

Anyway, the rules which have been passed down from generation to generation and which I have in front of me written in the blood of virgins on 1000 year old rice paper, says

"Reviews/features/editorials only so nerr!"

It would be interesting to know what sort of traffic the front page/forum is getting. Might force me to sort my grammar out ;)
