Fingers crossed that Animal Crossing is still coming out this year.

Watch Dogs Legion looks insanely great and perfectly to my taste, BUT... freaking March 2020? November seemed so sure. I'm running out of 2019 games here.
Well, we ARE doing this again next January, right? I'll get it then. :P

It's been a while since we had a check-in on this!
- Everything's riding on Shenmue III for me (my counter-pick). If it gets low 70s or under, I still have a solid shot at winning the whole thing, with Shovel Knight: King of Card and Phoenix Point still on the way in December. Shovel Knight especially could score in the very high 80s. But if Shenmue III scores 80 or over, I'm probably screwed.
- @elitefusion is in the lead with 89 points, all his games scored 84 or more and MediEvil gave 2 extra points as a counter-pick. Only a lack of Metroid Prime 4 keeps other people in the race.
- @gcjones216 started really well with the disastrous Left Alive bringing in 32 points as a counter-pick, but the delays of Ori and the Will of the Wisps and FF7 Remake ruined everything. With 85 points and nothing left to come, no way to catch up.
- For everyone else, I think first place is unattainable at this point.
Come on Shenmue, please suck!
if Shenmue III scores 80 or over, I'm probably screwed.
Karmic justice for your earlier betrayal!
I bet against Fallen Order, which at the time seemed like a good move but now seems pretty dumb. Not really complaining though. We got a good Star Wars game out of it.
I have renewed the league for 2020. If you were in last year and want to be in for 2020, please log in and pick a new Publisher name.
If you are not going to be in this year, let me know and I'll open the slot up for someone else!
Per the feedback from last year, I've increased the total number of games on each publisher to 10, and we will draft 6, giving us 4 empty slots to fill throughout the year. There is still one counterpick, and other than that, all other rules remain the same.
Once I hear back from everybody, we can set a draft.
Also: Congrats to
1st place: @elitefusion for beating everyone else at the game he programs. :p
2nd place: @gcjones216 for counter-picking Left Alive.
3rd place: @Axel for coming in third while doing me dirty and personally delaying S&B so that I wouldn't win.
Bowtop/Ellis? (I dont know your forum name)
MEEEEE: At least I beat
Retsier (who's forum name I also don't know)
I think you can pick your new publisher name by selecting 2020 in the dropdown box in the upper right of the screen.

I have a lot to learn from my run this year. First thing first: extensive research so I don't pick another Left Alive, lol.

Nicely done, Slim! Bringing this back to life like this, with results and all. I messed up big time this year, practically none of my picks ended up being released at all. I'm definitely in for 2020.

@TokyoSlim if you end up with any open slots I'll gladly jump in.

@tokyoslim Considering three of my games never released AND I had Death Stranding as a counter pick....
I did soooooooo much better than I thought.
On Saturday, I'm gonna drop anyone who's not ready to go.
If any slots open up, I'll post here on first come first serve. :)
Looks like we're drafting on the 28th. Specific time TBD

I haven't heard from one of our managers, so I've dropped them from the league. We have one open slot. We will be drafting on Saturday 12/28. First come first serve!
