Admittedly, I made a mistake questioning whether Nintendo would have a strong month after 3DW and Bravely Default came out last month. Won't make the same mistake again this month with Monster Hunter. Overall, Microsoft and Sony were hit the hardest with drops in votes. PC is down but not by much. Nintendo are overall up 51 points from the previous month. There were an impressive 96 games listed if you broke them up by platform for March. Hopefully this will be a continuing pattern over the next few months.

Watch out when the working title is simply 'X', lol 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.
