We're behind on ROTW. I know that Rob and I have been busy, and I think holdthephone has been devoured by his eZine workload (I do remember him saying something like he had a ton coming up--hope all is well, phone, if you're reading). In any case, I'm opening up the next seven ROTW topics to whoever wishes to do them.

Wait, wasn't there more than seven weeks?

Yes, but I condensed a few weeks down. Namely, the first three weeks in September (1 - 21), during which submissions were light. That's my decision on the matter for now, but it is negotiable. If anyone thinks we ought to split the weeks back up, do post and let me know.

The proposed schedule looks like this:

September: 1-21 -- Jason
(1-7)
Dynamite Cop (DC) by pickhut
Flicky (GEN) by maboroshi

(8-14)
Sega Rally 2 (DC) by pickhut

(15-21)
Uchuu Keibitai SDF by overdrive
Sonic Mega Collection Plus (PS2) by overdrive
Cubetractror (PC) by pickhut

Important New Rule
To anyone who accepts a week in October: my October reviews are optional. If you want to skip them all, that's fine. If you want to read one or two, or even all of them, then that's also fine. I'm really not worried about winning ROTW, and I realize that having an additional seven reviews makes for a daunting assignment. Thus, my reviews can be excluded (or included, if you so wish it) from your ROTW.

It'll be a few days, but sign me up for the September 1-21 batch, and the week of October 13-19 (and confirm that they're my responsibility if that works for you). I'd like to see us get back on top of the RotW topics, especially now that (with any luck) we'll be seeing more diversity in terms of authors and games being reviewed in such. Thanks for getting this organized, Joe!

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

No problem, and thank you for picking up a couple of weeks! :)

I can see me coming back to RotW at some point. Just felt myself starting to get a bit burnt out on doing it after a few years. Having major work changes coming to my office where we all get to learn new ways of doing the same old things we've been doing for years probably isn't helping, either.

Blah.

Now that I'm wrapping up my review assignments for the week, I should be able to get to my ROTW topics. I should have one up tomorrow night.

I keep forgetting to do my portion. I'm not sure if CJ is still game or not.

I can jump on Ceej's week if he's not going to show, and, as it's some months later, I'll go ahead and assume that's the deal.

If someone wants to update what needs covering, I'll pick a few out and save us a little more from this shambles so long as I'm not expected to carry them all on my own.

I'm currently working on CJ's ROTW. I should have it done soon.
