Game of the Month: February 2022

Ready for some lovely duos? Some partner adventures? Some gruesome twosomes? You ought to be, because your Games of the Month for February are here!

Completing any of this month's winners nets you the @GOTM Champion role and therefore access to the exclusive #champions_lounge, enabling you to hang out with the other champs and vote on NEXT month's GotM theme. Also, completing any GotM game (or Super Mario World, our GotY) will net you 1 point. These points roll over from month to month and are being actively tracked by me. You may choose to spend a single point on a continuing monthly raffle, OR choose to save them up to guarantee a prize instead of playing the luck angle. Full details are pinned in the #gotm_discussion channel.

To gain your points and @GOTM Champion role, you must do the following: complete the game in question, then take a picture of the end screen/credits with a handwritten time stamp somewhere in the frame of the photo. The time stamp must include your username and date, and this all gets posted in #gotm_discussion with a ping to @Rapid99 (Cyberphile) If you have any questions about the process, ping them, dm them, post it in #gotm_discussion, etc. We'll get to you.

You have until the winners for next month go up to post your pics, generally, sometime the morning of March first (get 'em in early though, timezones and all that!)

Make sure you tune into each game's specific thread in #gotm_discussion, for discussion, tips and tricks! (Gunstar Heroes, Kirby Super Star_Kirbys Fun Pak The Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap) I'll be pinning some important stuff concerning each game in there, especially for those of you keen on finishing Kirby Super Star/Kirby's Fun Pak, so come on by and chat! If there were any GotM nominations that didn't quite Outrun the competition, lost a compelling case, or lost 40-(no) love, but you still want to play them and chat about them, GotM Runner Up is the thread you want. Do note that completing any runner up game will NOT net you any points or make you eligible for the #champions_lounge.

See you all in #gotm_discussion! We're working on perfecting the point system, but don't worry, I've got everyone who completed a game logged, and we'll be reaching out for fun raffle and point redemption stuff!

Happy Gaming!
