Hey guys, it's that time of year again: fantasy football time! The league has automatically renewed, and all players from last year are joined. Please post here on if you plan to play again, or if you're dropping out. For anyone interested in joining, I'll start a waitlist here based on the order you post in this thread. If any spots open up, we'll go down the list. All the details of the league are below for anyone needing a refresher. I just copied it from last year's thread. I hope to see everyone again this year!
I know we have at least two spots that will be open, as Reed won't be returning, and we had another team that was pretty much abandoned for the second half of the year. Maddawg's account is inactive, but I'll give him a chance to get back in if he wants, otherwise we'll have at least three spots open.
Everyone playing, please post on your preferred draft days and times, and I'll do my best to do something that works for as many people as possible. It's usually impossible to accommodate absolutely everyone, but this league is legendary for the lengths people will go to to make the draft. Drafting from funerals, while driving, on boats, you name it.
It's that time again for the elite Fantasy Football players of Gametz to come together and compete in the premier Fantasy Football league of Gametz.

Bonham, any ideas on how Euron will get Arya? It seemed like he already has an idea in mind for his gift, and I don't think anyone even knows Arya is out there. Plus I'm going to be pissed big time if you're right haha.
Here's what I want to see: Euron somehow kidnaps Tyrion and brings him back to King's Landing. Right as Cersei is going to have The Mountain cut his head off, Dany comes flying in on a dragon and lays waste to the Red Keep, saving Tyrion and setting off the battle we've been waiting for.
Xenoblade Chronicles was my favorite game on the Wii, and I was more than halfway through it before I realized you could control your other party members' moves and not just your own. Not sure how that slipped by me, but boy was that a revelation.
I liked it a lot! It probably owes a percentage of royalties to Super Metroid, there were so many similarities. It didn't approach that game's quality, but it had a lot of fun weapons, some solid boss fights, and cool abilities, such as zipping through walls or using a drone to get to unreachable places. The only frustrations were sometimes not knowing where to go, but if you thoroughly explore, you'll keep progressing. I'd give it a solid 8/10.
I only got to try it once and it was pretty fun, but it'll be awhile until I get it. With Splatoon coming a month after, I don't see when I would play it since it'll be an online multiplayer game. I plan on playing the crap out of Splatoon.
I haven't been playing it at all to be honest, but part of it is that I don't want to subject myself to 100cc online. I'm going to use that tournament code, Scott. Thanks! And those ghosts must be nasty if you can't beat them.
