People haven't been using the Submission Guidelines. Therefore, I'm putting
the cut-and-paste section of Submission Guidelines at the bottom of this page.
Now all you have to do is move
your cursor to the left of the first letter of it, press your mouse button,
move your mouse to highlight all the text, right click, and choose "Copy", then
go into your favorite mail program and create a new email. Right click, and choose "Paste".
Then just fill in the information asked for. Rather simple, ne? Now you have no
excuses! I'd go into evil enforcer mode and rant about how I can't use files that
weren't submitted with the information included in the submission guidelines,
but I'm not one to enforce. Besides, I haven't been a sparkling model of
responsibility lately, what with letting MC slip this long. However,
I'd like you to know that I am alive and well. I was just going through a
fairly tough time at college (including finals, about 50 papers due at once,
and the hassle of transfering). Well, that and Christmas. Christmas was
pretty good this year. Nobody fought too much, and every present I gave
was well recieved... except for the last 3 fake moustaches I gave to my brother.
But it's not my fault they only came in a pack of 7, right? Besides, I gave
2 to my father also. Don't ask. My family is like that - we give more gag
gifts than serious ones.
Anyway, I have a request for all you loyal MCers, and those of you who aren't
quite so loyal yet - Send in Skies of Arcadia themes! This is one of the
best games I've ever played, and one of only two that made me bounce up and
down in my chair going "Cool! Cool! Cool!" For your information, the other was
Chrono Cross. Now, SoA isn't for everyone. If you hate anime and cuteness, you
probably want to give this one a miss. Not that it's overly sappy or anything.
A good test for this is, "Did you play Grandia? Did you like it?" A bit of
advice about this game - The first 4 or 5 hours are a bit tedious, but after
that it picks up a bit. Some of my friends only played the game a half hour,
saw only the annoying Aika, and the even more annoying Fina. If they had kept
on going, they would have gotten the coolest character ever - Drachma. I'll
say no more, because of the ever-increasing risk of spoiling some "major plot
Ah, yes. If any of you would be so kind as to look through the games page and
tell me which games have a themes section, I would be most grateful if you would
relay that information to me in the form of a .html or .txt list. The first person
to do this would recieve an oppertunity to participate in an upcoming MC as a
guest-MC Person, or perhaps even a spot guest-hosting in Google's column if I can
twist hir arm (intentionally misspelled as a combination of him and her)
