That's right, folks, it's a sad day indeed. The wonderful competition that could, couldn't. Bound to the fate of its predecessor. Sad, sad, sad..

When I first announced the competition, I thought I was getting a pretty decent response. I tried to ignore all those replies saying, “I'd grow a beard if I was old enough”. Which I tried to respond with by saying, it doesn't matter! It's just fun. I also had some women say they'd enter if they were men, so for fun I made an honorable mentions list (sorry for messaging you guys, I had to follow the list, after all). That was cool, a little added fun.

Then I had people say they weren't willing to shave for the competition. I can understand that, I guess. It wasn't the worst that happened, and certainly wasn't why this competition had to be canceled. Of course I'm talking about all the people that signed up but never posted their mug in the forum. I'm not sure what's up with that, we only had two.

I'd actually like to give out a special thank you to Gregory Hall and Lurfadur! You guys are awesome and I'd like to give you a gold star or something. Maybe we can go play Mario together or something. You guys are free to continue or quit, either way I announce you guys to be the winners.

Maybe we'll have better luck next year but for now, that's all, folks.

PlayStation Network Profile

I mostly enjoy playing older games on systems like the Sega Saturn and N64. However, recently I finally purchased a shiny 60GB, fully backwards compatible PlayStation 3, and haven't look back. Unless I want to fire up my Saturn. I'll always be a Saturn fanboy. I love sexy black consoles.

I am currently in possession of a PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Sega Saturn, and both a Nintendo DS/GBA.

Looking forward to:
Batman: Arkham Asylum
God of War III
Heavy Rain
The Last Guardian

Currently playing:
Burnout Paradise
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
Heavenly Sword
LEGO Batman
Mario Kart DS
Mirror's Edge
Radiant Silvergun

Recently destroyed:

God of War II (2)
Ico (1)
Karoshi (2)
Karoshi 2.0 (8)
