The Flailthroughs Second Anniversary Contest!

It's our Second Anniversary! Flailthroughs began with this post on August 14th, 2010. Since then, AngeliqueDaemon, Isstvan82 and I have played all the way through 11 different Japanese games, some a breeze and some astonishingly difficult. But, it's been fun! I want to thank the two of them for aiding and abetting me on this insane undertaking, as well as everyone who has read us, watched us, and hopefully laughed at us. With us, I mean. Hey, either way.

But to mark the occasion, we're having a contest!
Isstvan and I have selected from our collections three games, playable on US Game Boy systems (and DS and DS Lite in one case) that we feel run the gamut of the Flailthroughs experience:

EASY MODE: Yu Gi Oh: Worldwide Edition for Game Boy Advance! This game is a Japanese game, but can be (and has been) set to English and can be played without any knowledge of Japanese at all!

NORMAL MODE: Pocket Monsters Blue Version for Game Boy! This is the Japanese third version of Pokemon Generation One, and while the graphics were poached for the US Red and Blue, that Blue was really Pocket Monsters Green. This game has never been released outside of Japan, but if you're familiar with Pokemon Gen1, you'll probably do just fine!

HARD MODE: Last Bible II for Game Boy! This game, an offshoot of Shin Megami Tensei(isn't everything?), is a sequel to a US-released game (Revelations: The Demon Slayer) but has never been released outside of Japan at all. It has a lot of Japanese dialogue and a monster-recruiting system built around conversation. In Japanese.

All three of these games (Gundam Mark II not included!) will go to a single winner, chosen randomly!

TO ENTER: Simply reply to this post and leave a contact where we can reach you if you win (email, Facebook page, Twitter, whatever suits you), and tell us one or both of two things:

1. Which of the games that we've flailed through is your favorite? (Click Here for the list of Completed Flails!)

2. What games would you like us to do a Flailthrough of in the future?

We'll accept entries for two weeks, until 12:00AM EST on Wednesday, August 29th. Good luck, everybody, and thanks for 2 years!

EDIT: Updated the rules to expand the contact methods!

  1. 1)I liked all the Final Fantasy reviews. IV and VI were my favorites.

    2)I would like to see a few less common titles, like Monster Guardians or Black Matrix Zero (big RPG fan).

    I hope it posts my email address. Let me know if it isn't.
