Hello there! You've reached the official Gamerspective thread.

Some of the posts after this may confuse you, but that doesn't matter since we were originally hiring and now this is just a general thread. Without further ado, who are we?

Well, we've been writing gaming news and giving our perspective ever since our launch on September 1st, 2013. Some of you may know me. Some of you may not. I'm Ami, the co-editor (from October 2013, bitches!) and this is like my precious niece/nephew, as the baby actually belongs to the OTHER co-editor, who actually runs the site.

This thread is basically to chit chat about the site, promote ourselves (as we're actually now affiliated with TLS, woo!) and to shamelessly advertise our accounts across the board.

Hey, sorry I can't help out - what with not having the time or skills lol. But it sounds awesome.

Well I've joined Gamespective. :monster:
Looks interesting, it's like an uncluttered version of the Escapist.

Retro reviews sounds interesting, I've wasted spent most of my life with games. I've never really written anything before though.

You don't necessarily have to enter with writing experience. I'm sure a few of our writers were the same and look at them now!

You should give it a shot and send a sample over to Ami to look at!
Also this. If you do this, I can consult with my co-editor.

Just noticed this.

Do you guys still need help with design?
I'll get back to you on that. We might do, although that's not necessarily my responsibility on the site. As above, I'll talk to the co-editor. He's also the part owner.

Double post.

Gabe, I've spoken to him and he was wondering if you meant as in re-designing everything? The theme we have is limited, so it would need to be fully redone.

Yeah, he turned around before and said if you're up for it, then it's all good. Be best if you get in touch with us on Skype or something tomorrow evening. Sure you have me on there, at least.

I could help out with the articles. I'll have the time now that the wedding is over (and I'm gonna be laid off soon, damn you job! >:).

Any tips for writing a review? :huh:

I'm giving it a go but it's hard to stay objective or sound professional given I'm a fan of the game I'm writing about...

I'd look at the game from all angles. Try and remember playing it from the first time, when you weren't a fan and explain the things that made you like it. However, also try to point out some negativeness (or things that irk you, if you want to put it to a lesser extent) to make the review balanced.

By all means, I love to praise a game and I'll still find one or two things that can be quite annoying.

Good luck with it!

In addition to what Ami said, try imagining you hate the game. What are arguments people who don't like it make? Do those arguments have any merit? Etc.

Don't forget modest.

:smugkat:


I'm sorry, I'm just in a sarcastic mood right now. :smashedmonster:
Modesty is for those who lack conviction. =P

I can do either PC or Handheld, tbh, tho. I actually prefer PC. I'm better with editorials than news, though I'm not adverse to either.
Feel free to rustle up anything you want. Give us that review of Neverwinter on BFF if you really want! :)

Yeah, I can send that over. Shall I email it to you?

I had another look at the site and she sure is purdy. I especially enjoy the Babbling Blogness. Feels very personable.

I broke out my NES to play the game I'm reviewing, now I want to complete it.
The game is 27 years old, the review can wait until the weekend right? :wacky:
