Anyone here interested in Games Writing / Art / Podcasting?

  • I would be interested in writing, or contributing in other ways.

    I'm currently not doing much in terms of projects outside of work, so I can definitively make time for other stuff, and I've been thinking about doing stuff like this already, with the main factor preventing from doing so is not having an avenue to do so.

  • Thanks all!

    I'll hit you up individually.

    Just to be clear, I am not looking for a deal where you guys do a ton of work and I just reel in the clicks and views. It would very much be "I have a code, give me an article" in order for people to gain some clips and then move on and do their own thing (if they want of course)

    I was given the opportunity like this, but I think nobody should write for free for an extended period of time.

  • Maybe! I do some game writing in the blog section of this site, so you can sample some of my stuff there. Most of the writing I've done on the medium has been on older stuff, so there's a lot of more recent games I haven't got around to; which might not make me the best choice for new releases or current events or whatever.

  • The idea of writing again sort of fascinates me, but I'm about to start looking for a job so that I can safely quit my current job without dying alone in a ditch. I don't think I want to commit to any obligations that might be affected by or induce any further stress levels I have. :)

    Once things settle down a bit, I may volunteer to do some proofing and editing if you'll need that down the line.

  • On old GT I used to write reviews for everything I finished. Did make a attempt at doing a video review, but time and personal stuff has made it hard to try and continue that. Did try to continue writing, although my lack of structure kinda made my reviews really...really long (got a 90 page review of RE6 on a flash drive somewhere)

    With that said im interested, it would hopefully give me something to do in my free time between work and helping take care of my mom, and hopefully better my writing skills. As for doing a podcast that would probably be something extremely rare rare on my end as the only free time I would have to talk to anyone would be like 12 midnight to 2am.

  • I'm definitely interested in writing and/or podcasting, and I've got a PS4/3DS/Wii U at my disposal. I've got extensive experience in writing/editing/proofing/translating for games, so hopefully I can help in that regard. Hit me up as well!

    oh mi god! yes! so much yes!

    @TheHashtag0nist Hit me up on da Twitter! I would love to give the a try! always secretly wanted to be in a podcast, at least once just to see what its like! also I have always been writing stuff, so yeah would be interested in doing stuff!

  • @TheHashtag0nist I don't have a twitter, but I'm interested in writing. Not sure what kind you're looking into, though. I don't have any systems outside my 3DS and macbook at the moment, so if you're looking to do reviews I'm not your guy. I'm still working on some stuff on the side, though. I was hoping to post this one piece that I've been working on relatively soon, now that I've finally finished with all my grad school apps! Maybe once that gets up that can be equivalent to a "writing sample" for a job app, or something along those lines.

    I'd also of course be interested in Podcasting, but I live on the wrong side of the world for most people, so time zones would be an issue.

  • I'd be interested but work stuff might cause conflicts of interest and all that jazz. I'd be happy to talk/write about general gaming topics and game design stuff.

  • I'd be interested in helping out in some way! I've always wanted to try writing or podcasting for games or anything really depending on the scope of the site

  • Hey all,

    Thanks for the responses!
    I'll try to respond to you all individually over the next few days!

  • @TheHashtag0nist Good on you mate. It's great that you gave the initiative for all of us to do something together.

  • I'm also interested! I'm studying Professional Writing and Digital Media Production right now with the hope of being able to enter the games/tech/film industry in that realm. I've been wanting to get something going so that I can get so more experience in that whole vein, especially with writing, video, and podcasting.

  • Ok, i'll open up a groupchat later with some details! Thanks guys!

  • @TheHashtag0nist I'm definitely interested. Can we only find you on Twitter?

  • @TheHashtag0nist I don't know that I'd call myself much of a creative type, but I'm at a point where college and work are just about the only things going on for me, so if there's some other way I could help, I think I'd be up for it.

  • If you want any advice, let me know. I ran two podcasts (recorded, edited, posted) for a couple years before work started to take up "normal" time.

  • I'd definitely be interested.

    I like to write and have written loads of reviews and a diary series of numerous games on my blog here.

    I've also been on 2 Podcasts, 1 episode of VideoGamer UK's podcast in April 2015 and 1 episode of Podcast Reload from the Siftd community.

    (DM'd you on twitter too).

    I am studying Game Development and this might be something I'd love to dabble in especially since I want to expand my Horizon.

    I haven't been big on the newer AAA games lately besides Pokémon but I have some writing experience. I do have a ton of free time to spare.

    You can find me @DreyG0 on Twitter.

    You capitalised the "H" in "Horizon". Early review copy of Horizon: Zero Dawn confirmed.


  • @TheHashtag0nist I don't have twitter. Do you wanna start a group somewhere? We can use Slack or something.
