[QUOTE="DarkVincent07, post: 5968473]Indeed, gotta start getting more members in on it, and also more varied reviews. I said before I'm HEAPS busy before xmas but maybe I can do a short one for a mobile game or something. Its just fun to write and post ><[/QUOTE]

Agreed. I started a MGS4 review but I'm also working on a DUST piece for front page and dabbling with a few other small projects...plus gaming...my time is spread thin hehe.

[QUOTE="Lethal_NFS, post: 5968825]Hmmmmm, those really are not reviews. I personally would want to leave the review section for full reviews.[/QUOTE]

I agree. I mean, that thread kind of thread is kind of in place here due to its nature...but on the other hand this place is for full reviews.

I don't think I'll get any more reviews done this year. I'm writing up an epic DUST 514 guide,that combined with front page stuff will keep me busy till 2013. Of course, I'm here to admin the place. :)

[QUOTE="upmagic, post: 5980176]Thanks! I hope it's okay if I skirt around the headings and all, I like to keep things simple.[/QUOTE]

It's fine. To be honest, the formatting thing is going to take a back seat in the near future due to what this section is destined to become. That's not to say that the general areas we outlined shouldn't be discussed where applicable, but this section will become a portal for those who would like to perhaps get some of their stuff published on front page so a free styling approach is ok...stay tuned for more on this in the coming weeks. :)

Interesting Ghost. Well I'll be putting up another review in a little bit, so it's safe to say I can alter things around in the future? For sake of flow, the format sometimes doesn't work well. Depends on the genre of the game, etc. This next review will totally follow it, I like it for the most part, but could use altering.

I still think things like the + and - stuff is good, but the order etc may fade away. Nothing is concrete yet, we are still trying to form the vision. :)

I just wanted to take a min and thank everyone that has contributed to the CR section its awesome reading other members reviews! If anyone needs help with editing or maybe some kind graphics and that's what's keeping you from sharing a review don't hesitate to ask me for help with that just PM me.

Edit: 29 reviews in 6 weeks? Fuck yeah!

My next review should be up by tomorrow night. It is going to be Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for the PS Vita. I have invested about 9hrs in to the game so far and more than enough experience with the game to give a full detailed review.

Sounds good man! I really want that game and loved the demo so you can deal the deal with a review :p

As for me I finished Sleeping Dogs on 360 last night so I started a write up, 1/3 done it will be up in a day or two.

Dear awesome PSU community review section: I'd like to use you. Not in the dirty way, unless that's how you like it! No, I'd like to use your content for the homepage. I've talked to Ghost about this and I'm not sure how we left it, but how do you all feel about it? You'd get full credit, of course. If you want us to use your real name, just post it in your reviews. If for some reason you don't want it featured on the homepage, please let me know (maybe it's best if you just drop a note in the review thread itself).

I'll talk to Ghost about this more, but I'm thinking PSU can find some nice rewards for your work. Maybe the more content you get featured on the homepage, the more points you get... or maybe just a simple monthly cash prize?

You guys have some good content here. How would you feel if we opened an "editorial" section just like this where you can write editorials that could get featured on the homepage, adding to that potential for a reward?

That sounds like a wonderful idea, would be awesome to see more community involvement on the front page. I'll add my name to my submissions, let me know if any are of use to you!

Editorial pieces also sound interesting, a new subsection for that would be great.

This is along my train of thought too. I'm going to brainstorm some ideas and have a chat with Adam tomorrow about how to move forward with this. We may open a subforum here or keep the CR section as it is and re-open the Writers Army section (perhaps rename it to something else).

You guys drop your ideas and thoughts in this thread and we'll start forming a plan. :)
