This topic is being created and stickied so that if a review was eligible during a certain week of RotW but was forgotten when that RotW topic was created, it can be considered for the next week. If you are in charge of a week's given RotW topic, please make checking this thread part of your routine in case a holdover review is in play.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"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

I'd say, "AGAIN!", but since next week is my week, I'll probably just give it the win to teach you guys not to snub the concept of even thinking about it for three straight weeks.

This time was my fault. Partially. I made the mistake of listening to Emp when he tried to sell me on bailing him out: "It's just the five reviews, please, I'm so tired and weak..." Then I did the RotW and found that he was having a grand ol' time playing Yakuza for the next several hours straight.

Playing Yakuza, you say?!?! Maybe I'll alter my "just give myself a win as a lesson to everyone" strategy to a "make EmP cover my week under the 'ain't doin' nuthin' until someone, ANYONE remembers my review' clause" that I just came up after reading your post. Even if that means I don't submit any reviews, RotWs or much of anything other than bitching until mid-October, when someone finally puts two and two together and slaps together a couple sentences about it.

With all that said, it's going to be a really anticlimactic end to all this when that review winds up getting an honorable mention while described as "decent, but nothing great". But, damnitalltohell, I will complain REGULARLY until that moment happens!

You know how we feel about your mobile reviews, dude. An honourable mention is a lofty aspiration indeed.

Marc's poking fun, but I feel like I can manage short bursts of games (with a decent splodge of idle time where I wander off to wallow in self pity for a while) but sitting down to write anything but the breeziest of passages is exhausting. It makes sense to me, but sounds like madness when explained out loud.


For us. For them. For you.

This one isn't a Kemco one!!! It's a pure FREE-TO-PLAY, which is even more fun to write about!!!
