I wanted to address the rather lackluster activity of this section and see what we could do to maybe turn things around and get people creating reviews and opinions again. When this section first opened up, I thought it was a great idea and a great way to get the community to discuss games without the whole professional reviewer angle going.

As time went on, we have had some great reviewers who still churn out a review every now and then, but a rather small list of names now. It just seems like the fire has gone out, but even I have been really busy with work that I'm not creating as much.

I wanted to get the opinions from our community on what they would like to see in this section, what we could potentially change, what we could do away with or if the section has run its course. All thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I plan on making reviews again. My main goal is to knock out 1 or 2 reviews a month. Tomorrow I plan on releasing this forums first Xbox One review.

I'm sorry Scud, I know I keep saying I'll get to work on plans for this place and I will...I'll dig up that thread you made and see what we can action. I WILL NOT let this part of PSU fade.

Everybody can post a review however only staff are able to put your review into the index page. Feel free to write reviews and then send them to sir scud who will then put them into the index.

Yup, the whole idea is a section of reviews and opinions created entirely by psu members. So if there's a game you wanna review, give it a shot :)

PSU's frontpage staff could certainly be doing more. I'll be the first to admit I haven't been actively checking this forum section for homepage-quality articles as much as I originally hoped. It's easy to get overwhelmed with so many news stories, reviews, and other articles to cover on our own!

Yeah, I definitely understand you guys as very busy covering a lot of stuff. Can't be easy on top of duties outside of PSU.

I like reviews!
I don't write them often, but might write'm a little more since this is an active community and my reviews don't go to waste here.. :D

I've copied the reviews I've written for my clan('s forum) to this forum so far and changed a few words which was adressed to my clan, will definitely consider new reviews in the nearby future!

Am currently playing The Secret World again, actively, so might as well see to write a review about it!
