Title: Game Revolution Freelance Opportunity Posted: October 10, 2007 (07:23 PM)
[Approved by Venter]
First, I need to say that this opportunity is for locals in the Bay Area. Duke Ferris, the head honcho of the site, does not wish to mail games. If it were me, I would give some exceptional writers here a chance to have this opportunity as well. But if the boss says no, well that's that.
The freelance position at Game Revolution is essentially the same as it is on most sites. A review for a free game. The only exception is that you have to be able to come to the GR site at Berkeley, California in person to get the games. Duke wants to see all the freelancers upfront and personal. If the work is solid, then the opportunity of a paid position can be requested: either 10 cents per word or a fixed amount for every review.
I'm not sure how many people here are in the Bay area, but I just want to give some HG writers a chance to get into the biz.

If only I were there, this'd be a great opportunity. =[

He's really shooting himself in the foot with this "locals only" idea. Out of all the HG users I think bbobb/radicaldreamer is the only one in that area.

And when was the last time bbobb wrote a review? Seriously.

So long that the name doesn't ring a bell.

I wish I was in that area, sounds like a great opportunity.

That pay-per-word thing sounds like the worst idea I've ever heard since some guys got together and formed a band called Kamelot.
