I'm Joe. I was out of the reviewing business for a while, but recently got back in. Upon reading my older reviews, I realized how much they stank. I decided I want to improve my review writing by gaining feedback from others, and hope to do so here.

There is no place better for improving your video game writing. Good to have you here. Well at least for now it is... you might be a jerk in disguise. Welcome, in any case!

Hey everyone. I'm Tim. Recently I've started a reviewing website and I've done some reviews for gfaqs in the past. I want to get better at writing reviews and hope to give my work some exposure.

Anyone know if I can use the reviews I've submitted to gfaqs here? Or do they "own" them once submitted?

I really like the look and approach of this site. Especially the name. I get really sick of a lot of the reviews where nothing scores lower than 6 out of 10 etc etc.

You wrote your reviews for GameFAQs, so you own them. You can post them wherever you like, including here, so long as they meet the standards on the site where you post them. The only way a site "owns" your contributions is if you enter into such an arrangement because you're being paid (or for other reasons). Our standards here are higher than the standards at GameFAQs, but I hope that you can participate and find yourself improving, as others have throughout the years. Welcome to the site!

It was your sig at gfaqs that brought me here. (as long as you have the same SN there as here)

I hope my reviews can meet the standards of the site. I really enjoy writing reviews but my site is set up with a very small focus so a lot of games I'd like to review there I simply can't.

Here however it appears any game from any platform, genre, or generation is fair game which is exciting. =)

Hello. My name is Gabrielle, and I love horror movies. Video games, too. I found this site by looking for reviews of Monster World IV, which I'm currently playing. I pretty much play anything, although my favorite genres are RPG's (JRPG if possible) and survival horror. I also love getting trophies on PS3 games.
Getting familiar with the site, looking around, enjoying the numerous reviews, and hopefully I'll post some of my own sometime. See yall around.


I'm of the mind that the only sane people left are the ones who were crazy to begin with.

I should probably make a peep of some sort after putting up a handful of reviews and articles so I don't look like a decently literate hermit.
Hullo. I'm a guy on the internet who talks and writes about video games when I'm not playing them. I'm hoping in the future to work for the video game industry not as a developer but to cover it in video and written form. It certainly would beat out doing night shifts at Wal-Mart, crikey.
I also do videos and live streams but I wasn't entirely sure if posting links to them on my 'About Me' would be an issue. Any rate, let's be game buddies. Or acquaintances in good relations.


This is where the witty thing should be. I seem to have lost the witty thing. I'll get back to you on it.

It's fine to link to your content in your bio, if you know the HTML to do it and make it look nice. I would recommend briefly mentioning your "YouTube channel" and making that text serve as the hyperlink, to help give your link extra juice. I believe there is a character limit for that field, so you'll have to keep your text short and to the point to accommodate the required HTML.

Nice, I've tried doing a twitch stream and a couple of LP's on youtube myself, but my internet is bad (so no streaming) and I just don't have the time (or equipment) to really dump into videos at the moment...however, if I ever get some spare cash and a lot of time to dump, I really would like to move into doing LP's and possibly video reviews or top 10 videos...its been something I've been wanting to do for a while now.
