And now it's time for something a little different...

I've been talking with the guy in charge over at Good Games Writing (visit the site here) and we thought it would be fun to give some HonestGamers community content a bit of extra exposure on that other site. This is not an affiliation between the sites. It's just recognition of the fact that we regularly post some great stuff here that could use some more attention.

The way it works is pretty simple. First, you just submit your content here like you normally would, and staff will continue to approve the pieces that meet our standards. Near the end of the month, I'll post to let people know that they should pick their favorite community contribution from the current month. People will have a week or so to weigh in, and then a link to the community favorite will be passed along to Good Games Writing. At that point, Good Games Writing will have the final right to veto the review that is settled upon, but that's not a likely scenario if we continue posting the great content that we have been.

It's early to say exactly how the content will be promoted on the other site, as this is a new thing for all involved, but it will mean extra exposure to the sort of intelligent audience we all try to write for, so I'd say it's a win all around.

Remember: any user submission posted from July 1 through the end of the month will be eligible to receive attention from Good Games Writing, so have fun with this and let's see everyone continuing to post their best work.

Can we count the Last of Us review I just made? I would've waited a day to make it eligible had I known!

I dig the idea. :)

I guess that's fair, since it was just announced and all. I doubt anyone would mind, though if this carries through to future months--as I expect it to--we'd be strict about timing down to probably the hour. ;-)

Excellent! Thanks for that! I'm also going to try to get a couple other reviews out this month, I miss writing for the site.
