Looking for help on Gaming Verdict

Post by boyo » Tue Nov 04, 2008 4:48 pm

First of all I've Okay'd posting this with Darran.

I'm looking for help with my site Gaming Verdict - www.gamingverdict.com

At the moment Sir Clive is helping with reviews and Woody.Cool is looking to help with the retro section.

I am on the mailing list of a number of companies to supply games and to be honest I do not have the time to play and review all of them. I have just given out Quantum Solace, Spiderman, Fracture, Samba Di Amiga, 3 x PS2 Ignition SNK titles for review to a couple of colleagues. I have also given Sonic Chronicles to Sir Clive. Before that I handed out Battlefield, SPace Siege, Haze, bejing 2008, Guitar Hero: Aeroesmith, Flatout and Lego Indiana Jones and Ireviewed Star Wars Force Unleashed. I have Dead Space on the way as well as whatever the PR ppl want to send me.

In this case the deal is I send on the game for review, the person reviews it in the style of the current reviews on GV and sends to me. The person keeps the game.

In addition, I am looking for reviews for XBLA, PSN and Wii as well as those titles I do not get from the PR ppl.

Also, I am looking for people to help with the news on the site - both retro and current.

We talk a lot about the current games on the 360, PSN and Wii in this forum - lets put these thoughts into a review and comment on GV and get a bigger audience to read them.

GV is getting around 300-400 unique visits a day, and at its peak so far we got over 1600. With a bit of help I think the site could do quite well. I'm looking to share the site with a number of Retro Gamer forumites who hopefully will feel a big part of the site. That is the dream/goal anyway.

What do you guys think?

Hi boyo - I'd be happy to help out. I do freelance writing and graphic design, but would be happy to help out on a pro-bono basis to get the site off the ground.

If you've ever read/viewed my eBay stuff, it might give you an idea of my writing style, but it's quite adaptable.

I'd be happy to do PSP stuff, as it's the only current gen I own. Feel free to give me a PM.

I'd be interested in doing some stuff, as time permits.

P.S. Did I mention that I am a full time professional-like ASP/VB/C#ish .NET applications developer in real life?

Yes please m8 - we are lacking big time in PSP reviews and features. Anything particular you want to kick off with?

Cheers,

Chris

Chris!!!!! Grab him quick and maybe you can get the individual categories tarted up a bit. I want to push the retro section but while it is basically just a list of features I can't get people excited.
