    Could someone also be hired for just one or two reviews on some games they've played, or does being a reviewer imply you work for a number of months?

    I wouldn't mind writing up some stuff on mmo's I've played, but I won't have time to dig into new ones and put the required 20-40 hours of play in per week or even two weeks, to pop out a new review each time.


    Oh and we're planning to redesign the front page completely.. it's gonna be purty *_*

    Being a reviewer implies you will accept assignments to write previews on betas and reviews on released titles. While no one is under a contract, reviews are expected to be done in at least a rough draft form and sent to me every 2 weeks if chosen as a staff writer.

    I would consider it but I'm not sure if my writing qualifies as anything close to professional..

    Although....to be honest most reviews/previews take longer then 30-60 minutes to write and generally check over (maybe that's just me?) but some money on side is always very nice.

    Yeah :P. It takes me quite a while to write them up, and even more to revise. I enjoy doing it though, and this is all a convenient bonus for me.

    We're also working on setting up custom titles and a writers only forum. Even more incentives to write
