That'd actually be encouraged Smile

Just remember that the width restriction is under 590~ pixels width, but you can use thumbnails that link to a larger image that will be displayed in a lightbox (See previews and look for a game with screenshots at the bottom as an example)
Tsunami Bomb - The Simple Truth
We could run away
Leave behind anything paper
Not knowing where we're going to stay
When there's no Mondays

You're part of me, it's so easy to see the simple truth
When I'm in your arms, I feel safe from harm and sorrow too
You're part of me, it's so easy to see the simple truth
But most of all, nothing couldn't be solved when I'm with you

Oh wow, I'd love to take part in this. If these days are available, I'll nab 'em:

Day 2 - Your favourite character
Day 3 - A game that is underrated
Day 23 - Game you think had the best graphics or art style

I'm thinking of jumping in for day 15 (Important lesson a game has taught me) but I wanted to check some stuff first.

Technical stuff first, if I went ahead and did an audio thing with a video accompaniment, sort of like Zero Punctuation, but with images and in-game footage, would that be acceptable?
Secondly, do I have to pick one thing a game has taught me, or can I expand it a little wider to "important lessons a game has taught me"?
If not, I've already got what I want to do in my head, and I think I can probably fudge it a bit for that title to still make sense.

Oh, and I'm assuming I can get away with being a bit tongue-in-cheek with it right? Obviously provided that there's more to than just "lol it's funny because that doesn't work in real life."
(something like "Mario has taught me the value of life, it's 100 coins.", only y'know, funny.)

Oh, I'm also interested in typing something up for day 20 (favourite genre), since nobody seems interested in doing that one despite the fact it looks to be pretty straight forward.

I don't see the problem with a video production, but I don't know if you want to enter this as the chance of being full time staff? If you do, then would you want to do more video productions?

Yeah dude, audio/video stuff is entirely fine (and uncommon, so encouraged!). The topics are pretty fast and loose. Multiple lessons a game has taught you is plenty fine (and I may just edit that so it's plural).

Don't see why not, audio is basically My Thing, and I know more than enough about video to do it without any real issue or taking months to produce something that's Windows Movie Maker quality.
Kind of surprised you haven't got someone doing something comparable anyway, lots of sites use the format to great effect, Screw Attack, The Escapist and so on.

So yeah, if you're happy with what I do I think I'd be down with making it a regular thing, video does take a lot of time to edit and render, so I'd probably have to space it out with something else, either regular articles or just audio stuff, but obviously that's assuming I get past this little trial by fire.

One random question, but is this being done in April or May? You say April in half of the places and May in the other half.
