So, we're doing this again.

Review of the Week is this thing were someone reads all the reviews posted here in the span of a week and then picks their favourite three. Long ago, back in the way before, it used to be a staple program of the site but interest and participation waned and it stopped for a few years. We bought it back mid 2016 because we hate free time.

We even have a brand new rota in place for 2018. First off, thanks again to both Nightfire and Jerec for being part of the panel through last year, without whom RotW would have never made it to 2018. That being said the new rota, listed in turn order, as as follows:

Jason -> Joe -> EmP -> Overdrive ->


Look out for weekly topics appearing in the Contributor Zone section of the forums.

Winning a week and fabulous often acceptable prizes.

It went somewhat under the radar last year, but win a week, claim a free game. Most of these are via steam codes either contributed to us via generous publishers or members of the community, but some good stuff has been known to turn up now and then. You can see what's currently available RIGHT HERE

All rise for Site King!

Last year this was a bit of a mess thanks to my stupid idea to overly complicate it with ludicrous equations. The idea is to have rolling score based upon your RotW placements with the person with the highest score at the end being declared Site King. Last year I tried to make it so that you got more points for placing in a busy week. This year, it's time to make it simpler, cleaner and more transparent. And so, you will receive 3 points for a win, 2 for second and 1 for third. Assuming I can figure out the HTML behind it without going mad, I'll keep a sometimes up to date league table either in this topic or a topic of its own. This way, you can all track your progress throughout the year rather then seeing if you're in the top five of a list that you just have to kind of take my word for is correct.

Questions and comments and other nonsense goes below:

Review of the Week for April 2 - 8 is obviously late. I've had electrical work done on my house all week, which soaked up a bunch of my time. I have started reading the reviews, though, and should have the topic up either tonight or tomorrow morning. I apologize for the delay.

I'm going to start indicating which old ROG reviews qualify for ROTW and which don't (they'll be in the comment section). Most of my more recently written ROG reviews shouldn't qualify, since I only have to touch them up a tad.

In related news, Planet Crashers shouldn't qualify, but Ghouls 'N Ghosts should. I had to restructure the latter a bit, cut out filler and rewrite paragraphs to eliminate a lot of passive voice.

Reposts don't count in things like the Alphamarathon, but they're eligible here. Until someone abuses the system and we change our mind.

Besides, I have enough trouble remembering to include (EmP's) reviews in my RotWs. How do you think I'm gonna handle having to remember to NOT include reviews?!?!? MY BRAIN WILL BREAK!!!!

At least Freeman and I held off on submitting.

Are we not merciful?

You guys are cool. The REST OF 'EM, THOUGH!!! There will be a reckoning. When it's EmP or Joe's week, I'll gonna submit 20 Kemco reviews based solely on watching the 60-90 second trailers for the games and my personal experiences with other Kemco games. None of them will place, but they'll have to read every damn one of them!
