    So I'm starting it slightly earlier than last year, but hey, that's what being unemployed does to you. We had a lot of fun the last 2 years, so lets make it another success. The rules are the same as last year (in fact, I copied and pasted them, hurray for efficiency!), and they are as follows:

    1) Pick 8 video game characters from any game who you want to have in the showdown. When you nominate them, please list the series in which they are from (ex: Sub-Zero, Mortal Kombat). List them even for the obvious ones, it makes my life easier.

    2) The characters MUST have originated from video games. This means Darth Vader, Homer Simpson, Spiderman, etc, are not welcome in the tournament. If there is any confusion, Pokémon are welcome.

    3) No M.U.G.E.N characters, for the same reason

    4) Only one "form" of the character from the series. For example: Toon Link and Link are the same person, as well as Devil Jin/Jin Kazama, Adult Link/Kid Link, etc. If you are still confused, just post and I'll correct you if necessary.

    5) The character does NOT have to be a playable character, they can be who ever you want (as long as they are not too obscure)

    6) In case of a tie, I'll have the tie breaker vote (for the first few rounds)

    The tournament will have 128 characters. Here are my nominations:

    Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear)
    Amaterasu (Okami)
    Vergil (Devil May Cry)
    Mewtwo (Pokémon)
    Auron (Final Fantasy)
    Gregg the Grim Reaper (Conker's Bad Fur Day)
    Razputin (Psychonauts)
    Trip (Enslaved)

    Mattay, I changed your Toon Link pick to just Link.

    Daniel, can you be a bit more specific than The block dude from Picross 3D?
