OK guys, here’s the deal. I’m actually writing this way, way ahead of the deadline—about a month early, in fact, because I’m going to be out of the country the last two weeks of this month. I’ll be soaking up the sun of Costa Rica, and I’m hoping to get this written ahead of time because, really, who wants to think about GameCola while recovering from severe sunburns?
Unfortunately, my epic plan for this month is to post and talk about pictures from my trip, which is difficult for me to do, not having taken the trip yet. So how about this: I’ll take care of writing captions for the pictures now, and I’ll just hope that, later on, I can find pictures that line up with them.1 Sound good?
What a great trip I will have had, am I right? OK, good, that’s all written now…no, wait, I have to write some bullet points, too. Let’s see…what are we going to have in this issue….
I bet we’re going to have The Ten Reasons, because Michael sent in this month’s The Ten Reasons four months ago.
Monkeys! No, wait, I talked about them already.
Last time I checked, we had a special guest lined up for this month’s Versus Mode: Andrew Raub, from the pop-culture review site Good-Evil.net. And hey! I think he’s up against the long-lost GC writer Fatt Fraser.2 What a slobberknocker that might be.
Oh, look at my inbox! Alex already got his review in. Someone’s vying for EoTM! He wrote about Lagoon for SNES. Lagoon? I bet I see a lagoon….
Enjoy the issue, folks! I know I will have had.

1. Actually, I’ll probably just pick pictures I like—if they don’t match up with the captions, did I mention that we’re starting a new caption contest this month?
