Very nice!

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

This time last year, SITE KING showed a very different set of standings. Early year blitzes from Pickhut and Jerec in particular had them both grasp high positions (Pickhut would remain in the top two for the majority of the year before slipping out near the end; Jerec was sabotaged with a RotW judge spot that destroyed his output for the rest of the 2017 season). The rest of the chasing pack was comprised of EmP, Overdrive, Jason, Nightfire and Joe. At this point of last season, Masters had yet to review a game in several years, leaving Nightfire as Canada’s only hope.

He’s certainly found his feet again. After a slow January, Masters dominated the February submission queue, often offering multiple reviews for weeks and competing hard for top honours. He’s currently held off the top of the league by a stubborn Joe, who boasts the highest number of RotW placements so far, but has recently found himself on the injured list. Could this be a secret boon while he quietly games away, building up a reserve of things to write about?

Defending champion EmP rides high in the table, but his position is not without some early controversy due to notorious EmP-snubber OD. Forcing a review carry over has had serious impact on two weeks’ worth of standings including, in a bitter twist of irony, potentially knocking his own reviews out of a possible top three finish in the most recent week. These lack of points will especially hurt the veteran campaigner, who is off to an uncharacteristically slow start to the new season. Likewise for fellow vets Pickhut and Jason who would expect their early-season standings to be better.

Many assume this is an early blip that will soon be righted, but the shock re-emergence of several old faces such as Fiddlesticks, DE, Will and ex-judge Jerec may force them into a tougher season than they might have expected. Already, new opponents like Freeman have staked their place in the league; maybe a surprise rookie victory is on the cards? Or, as the never-ending Masters comeback tour has proven, there’s always room for retirements to be broken and old strangleholds re-established.

For us. For them. For you.

I've been wrestling with a Mass Effect Andromeda review for a while now. My last great idea was parodying that "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE" youtube video, but I don't think I can make that work.

I'm still playing Breath of the Wild and Ys VIII, but not ready to review either one.

I can avoid death by not having a life.
