I made a slight error in the Duke Nukem section of the year round up, the first part should read: After being the butt of many a joke in the gaming world,
Also, the game was in development for 15 years, not 14 as I just learned.

It works best to have one person be the collector of everybody's submissions and format them in their AP.net blog.

haha....interesting post by that user. We have had roundup coordinators post them in their AP.net blog and then email a link to that blog when it is ready. However, it worked better to use this forum when there were multiple users volunteering for the roundup and they needed to discuss things. Since it is just you now, you can do it whatever way you want. Let me know and I can provide you with the email addresses to email a link to your blog when the roundup is ready.

Quote me whenever your next one is ready.
