    Hey there, GBAtemp! Did you miss me? Well, you're going to be missing me a lot more come this Saturday. Anyway, we have another review contest! This time, you'll be reviewing any game that fits the theme of Halloween! The review doesn't need to be Halloween themed, but the game should sufficiently be. I'm not going to reign that in any further than I have already, because I want to see how you interpret the theme as well, but if you have any doubts about whether or not it's acceptable, shoot me a PM. The best three reviews as judged by yours truly will win the prizes. Remember, the reviews section is in that tab up there at the top of the page. That's where you will be writing your reviews.

    What are you reviewing for? Because I said so! Now write, my monkeys, write! Bwaaaaahahahahahaha! ...no? Alright, alright, how about my unwavering appreciation and admiration? Still nothing, huh? Well, what if I were to say that the top 3 reviews get their choice of one video game of their choice for any current gen console? (Yes, that includes Wii U. Deal with it.) Get your attention, did I? Good. Now make me proud!



    Rules

    1. All reviews must be Halloween themed. I'll leave it at that, but I have the right to refuse a review if I feel that the theme isn't followed quite enough.

    2. When you write the review, link to it in a post in this thread along with: The game title, what platform it was on, or in the case of a multi-console release, please state which version you are reviewing.

    3. The reviews must be in your own words. Don't just look up a review and switch some words around. You must review the game, and write the review yourself.

    4. Grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraph structure isn't everything, but it will count in my judgement. Dont rite lyk dis and think u hav a chans at winning

    5. Images/screenshots are not only allowed, but encouraged!

    6. All entries must be submitted by Thursday, October 31, at 11:59 PM PST.

    7. One entry per person per IP address. If you make more than one review, you have to choose which one to submit for the contest.


    BONUS!

    Have you tried making your own Streetpass relay at home? Go ahead and give it a try. If you streetpass ME, follow the URL in my greeting message, and PM me the secret message found there, and you'll be entered in a raffle to win a prize. What's the prize? That's a surprise! My Mii is named Twinretro, has the pixel mario hat on, and has a rather dashing beard. Note: I will always be using the main/general MAC address.

    Hmmm... I might do a Disgaea game myself. I don't know which one. Goodbye, Pedeadstrian. :) I'm thinking Dark Hero Days for the PSP though, so you're lucky. :mellow:

    I don't have a current gen console.... If I enter and have the luck to win, can we choose a PC game too, or it isn't allowed?

    It's possible. If you want Steam, I'll likely buy the game from my account and gift it to you.

    Can I surprise people if I do one or do I have to post the name of the game right now? I've seen lots of people doing this on here already.

    The definition of "current gen" for Nintendo is obvious but if the winner chooses Sony or Microsoft, does "current gen" refer to the 360/PS3 or would they have to wait a month for their prize to be released?

    Does it have to be a game that nobody else in the thread has reviewed, or can multiple people review the same game?
