Quicklinks to each journal entry! Unlinked entries represent games that have been played for the Marathon, and either have a journal that needs to be tidied up for the new site, or will have a journal entry in the future. Entries are ordered roughly by release date, favouring the North American, though conflicts do exist thanks to games released only in one region, after many years, etc.
We are presently -On Hiatus-. Updates will continue through the end of Dirge of Cerberus and Birth by Sleep.
