I need some help, before my vacation. I need content, and I'm willing to pay for it.
Tonight and very early tomorrow are the last opportunities that I have to work on the site, but I'm being stymied by my obligations at work, being sick, and a refinance of my house.
I was sick on Sunday with some version of the flu. I worked till 9:20 last night, and I have a closing on a re-fi for my house tonight. I have half-dozen articles in progress (Doom 3 expansion review, Doom 3 comparison [XBox to PC], Rayman DS review, TimeSplitters 3 review, A look at Half Life Capture the Flag, and a Wario Ware Touched! review). I fear I won't get them done on time for my vacation. If I don't get them done, the site will be in a tight spot.
I know that I've seen a few submissions trickle in (3 in queue), and I appreciate that. However, I'd love to see them flood in. So, $50 to the person that posts the most accepted reviews OR ARTICLES before 6am EST tomorrow morning.
Here are some article suggestions:
- An overview of the current / upcoming connectivity options for online gamers (like, to track friends, to talk via voice, to enter games that your friends are playing, etc) - for each platform. Think XFire, Skype, Teamspeak. Give a quick tutorial, maybe take some screens. You'd be shocked at what's out there now, and what's coming in this year. Also, you can tie old games into here - how to use Killaria (sp?).
- Reviewing all of the major magazines available right now, along with ratings.
- Strategy articles on ANY game. From the BASIC to the ADVANCED.
- Exploring games - development trends, "genre gluts", etc etc etc.
Good luck, and here's hoping you win!
PS - prizes will be paid/sent when I get back from vacation (for my sanity), and I prefer PayPal, but will cut a check if need be.
I've decided that I'm going to sweeten the pot for the "2nd Place" and "3rd Place" authors.
2nd Place: You will recieve a "Box O Schwag" - classic or new games, a system, stuff from last E3, freebies I got in the mail?!??! WHO KNOWS! But it'll be worth your time, in a very scavenger-huntish way.
3rd Place, and maybe even MORE: You will recieve an "Envelope O Schwag" - all the goodness that can be stuffed into a manilla envelope and still be legal!
WARNING to foriegn participants: Mexico and Canada is as "foriegn" as I'll ship.
