This is my kind of week! Four reviews, and since two are by Overachiever Joe, everyone gets a prize!

Rob' take on Dishonored is fairly focused and compelling and made me want to try the game. His explanation of the contrast between playing smart and delicate, and going Rambo, was well handled and indirectly painted an inviting picture of the world you'd find yourself in were you to get this game yourself.

Joe reviewed Cthulhu Saves Christmas, and opens with a killer sentence -- my favourite of the week. He goes on to write a solid RPG review which is one of his areas of expertise so of course it's a polished piece. Insincere though, is the Joe review I prefer this week, as it allows him to flex his comedic muscles by taking a hilariously broken experience to task.

Perhaps surprisingly, Joe's Insincere didn't strike me as the top FPS review of the group: Nightfire makes a welcome 'return' and tackles Project Warlock in fine fashion. The review discusses a game that plays as a love letter to 90s FPS titles while standing on its own two feet. In fact, Nightfire's was my pick for best of the week.

And so, if you're keeping track:

THE PODIUM

THIRD PLACE
Insincere by Joe

SECOND PLACE
Dishonored by Rob

REVIEW OF THE WEEK
Project Warlock by Nightfire


That's it for now.

And again, thank you for this topic and the placement!
