But it's so... seductive. If I didn't already want to vote for it, I would now.

Whoever ends up running the next one, I just want to say that JBear was right, traffic is much slower here on weekends (still not sure why, though). It really was noticeable once JBear pointed it out, and I was able to come up with a workaround on the fly, but I would like to put it out there in this thread so that hopefully future list runners are aware and can plan around the weekend drag if they want to.

I'm still up for Mecha, though I still don't expect it to get near winning unless we have an unusually slow month. But hey, I guess summer is kind of slow.

If it wins, you can help me run it. But I honestly think the odds of two videogame polls winning back to back are slim.

IIRC, we had a tie last round, so the plan is to move straight to the other tied winner (blanking on what that is ATM).

Probably waiting until Falselogic gets to 25 with his list, since he tied with Loki last round and he's up next.

I forget, do we normally vote for the next contest at the halfway point in the countdown or does the next contest's voting start by then?

The former. We usually start voting in the next list when the current one hits the top 10. Meaning Positiively Tronic the Brain can start his thread tomorrow, if all is going to plan.

If Bubble Bobble isn't #1 we'll have failed as a species.

You mispelled "Chrono Cross". It's OK, common mistake!

I believe you both mistyped "Puzzle Bobble" "Rainbow Islands".

I swear to god, I was listening to the Lolo theme on loop when I read this thread. It and the Buck Bumble theme on loop are frequent listens at my desk. Other highlights include the FFIV hummingway jingle on loop, and the 7th Saga victory fanfare on loop.

(I have a problem.)
