Hello guys & gals. El Muerko pointed me to this site after having a chat with him about games writing a while back - so here I am.

I've done a few pieces for the EG reader reviews & other sites:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/review-il2-sturmovik-1374536
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/review-silent-hunter-5-1388441

and yeah I'm a bit of a simulator fan. Feels a bit odd pimping my 'services' like this, but I'd love to help write the odd piece for the site, if you'll have me. If not I'll just lurk and post the occasional knob gag.


Don't gag. ;)

Welcome fellow ARMA-er.

Since Peej and Hairy are away at the moment, although I think Peej may be back. I'm putting up any submissions at the moment. (The submit function doesn't appear to work and Hairy gets the submissions@ emails)

Check this thread if you want to submit anything in the near future.

Orpheus, welcome aboard.

If you have an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch I've got a Chillingo game that needs reviewing that you're welcome to.

Thanks for the welcome chaps, and lo Tiger - internet's a small place sometimes :D Cheers for the sub advice.

@ Kentmonkey - I'm on a Windows Phone I'm afraid, I own nothing with the i-prefix whatsoever. Happy to do WinPhone games tho, and thanks for the offer :)

No worries mate. Well Peej and Hairy are the regular review code guys, I get the odd bit still from old contacts (I used to write for eight websites, until I realised that I was no longer enjoying gaming, so cut it down to two) but it's amazing how many people have left their PR company jobs in the last two years. I know virtually none of the new lot at all, sadly, so my review code is very, very sparse.

I'm sure Peej and Hairy will welcome a new face to the writing team though.

Also we have done a few 'letting the dust settle' articls (I've done three I think, Peej another, just search for 'letting the dust settle' and read the Uncharted 2 one I wrote as a guide) so there's nothing stopping you submitting a review of a game that's been out 12 months+ that you've only just played, as one of those types of features. It doesn't have to be a 'good' game, just one that either reviewed really well or really poorly at the time and you're reviewing it now that the dust has, ahem, settled. :o)

Orpheus, please feel free to write as much stuff as you want. Send it my way (hairyarse at gmail dot com) and I'll work my magic on it. Once we build up a bit of confidence in you, we'll give you access to the Content Management System and you can upload it yourself.

EvilAshChris doesn't have access yet because he never proof-reads. :P

Cool, ta - didn't want to step on anyone's toes! Will spend a few days with RO2 and get something scrawled down. :D

Do I get some kind of finders fee?

I accept payment in illegal drugs, legal drugs, sexual favours and chocolate.






Not dark chocolate.

:D

You can give access to me for news stuffs if you like?

I'll still send the reviews through you or Peej mind, I can never see my own mistakes in longer articles.

Welcome welcome to AATG, it's a rich meaty broth of gaming, social commentary, holey socks, BO and cheese.

Oh and knob gags, we go a bundle on knob gags!
