I thought it might be nice to have a place where people could post the links to their review sites. Just add them in the comments below.

For myself, I just put up my reviews of the first five games I was able to play. I deferred a couple because they appear to require either an interpreter upgrade or a closer look below the hood of my computer, which I shan't worry about until next week at least. The Breakfast Reviews are here: http://www.ricordius.com/ifreview.html .

That's a slightly different URL from usual. I've done a bit of housecleaning on my website, and that included some playing around with the HTML of the review site. They should work on a cellphone now ... sort of. So if anyone's wondering what happened to the Breakfast Reviews, well, they're right there.

Mine are/will be (one post up with three games so far, but the tag will show all of them) at:
https://antimony.dreamwidth.org/tag/ifcomp+2018

Basic philosophy: I will likely not write up any games I really disliked everything about -- if I wrote something about your game I'm glad you submitted it, and I don't put my numerical ratings on my comp reviews any more, partly because I think it's counterproductive and partly because I do curve at the end so that I'm using the full range from 1 to 10, which I know people debate about whether or not to do, but I do. I don't expect to get time to play to all of the games but am hoping to get to at least half of them.

I posted some of my reviews. I'll be honest, I'm cherry-picking games because I don't know how many I'll get through. For the past 4 years I haven't played more than 5 games a comp. This year I'm having fun with it, so I'm probably going to do more, but here's the first 5 that I've played. ** Warning: Scores on this page ***: http://www.infodarkness.com/if/ifcomp2018.html
