Weeklong Deals for 3/19/18

Steam has gone absolutely nuts with their Weeklong Deals this time, with tons of notable titles discounted. This is definitely the time to pick up a roguelike like Crypt of the Necrodancer or Sproggiwood, or an adventure like Dropsy or Black Mirror. There’s a ton of garbage to go through too, so if you’re down for some deal-hunting you’ll stay plenty busy today.

Speaking of being busy, I have a problem I need some help with. Curator Connect has been big for helping developers connect with reviewers like me, but I’ve had trouble keeping up with the deluge of titles to cover. I’ve gotten a few through the system that are definitely worth a look like Star Traders and Unforgiving – A Northern Hymn, but I’ve also got nearly 40 that may or may not be huge wastes of everyone’s time.

That’s why I need some feedback on how you folks would like me to handle them. I’ve got a few ideas listed out here, so if you’ve got a minute please fill out this one-question survey. Once I see what y’all are interested in I can proceed from there.
