first give me the idea of dedicating a month to playing Falcom games, I never imagined it would catch the interest of more than a few of our mutual friends. Imagine my surprise when people I didn’t personally know started using #Falcomonth
and commenting about what a great idea it was! So before I get into a roundup of what those participating in the Falcom Community Game-Along
(Falcom Month, for short!) have been up to over the past week, let me first take a second to thank everyone who has spread the word of this majorly last-minute event! I sincerely mean it when I say this wouldn’t have taken off without your support.
In fact, while the first week of January was a short one, but that doesn’t mean Falcom Month was off to a slow start! People have been tearing up #Falcomonth
on Twitter (you’re welcome to use it on Tumblr, as well!), and there have already been a few blog posts and articles to come out of the event. Here are just a few*:
So it’s now #falcomonth
Are you going to be playing any Falcom games this January? *Cough* Trails in the Sky *Cough*
Of course, my partner-in-crime for Falcom Month Kimimi, made sure to announce the event on her own blog
. Be sure to follow her Tumblr
for updates on her Falcom Month progress, along with some of the best screenshots around!
Kirsten at Endless History, a Falcom news/fan site, wrote a great news post about Falcom Month for her readers. Thanks so much! If you want to keep up to date on all the goings-on of Falcom and their game releases, make sure to subscribe to Endless History.
Finally, we’re trying to get an official thread for the event on NeoGAF! If anyone reading this is a member and would like to assist, please let me know. And be sure to keep playing Falcom games and tweeting/writing up your impressions so I can include them in the week two roundup post!
*Unfortunately I can’t include every tweet in this post, but I’ll strive to highlight every article. Please contact me if you’ve written at length on a Falcom game this week (or the event in general) and I haven’t included it!
