Well guys. I applied to the site, was fully interviewed, then they dropped a delightful bombshell on me.

They said that because they were so poor that they couldn't pay me or ANY of their writers, it would have essentially been free labour on my part.

I'd ALSO have to shut down my own little site, which despite it not earning me any money or even being that good, it's still mine and it's still important to me.

So I declined. Anybody got some other sites I could apply to?

Game reviewing is kind-of a bum deal(Or so some friends tell me...). A lot of the time you'll be asked to finish a long game(Like say Fallout 3 or Dragon Age) and then make a review up in about 3-4 days...

Well I manage to write my reviews in a day.

Well my options for jobs are limited, being disabled and all. I love writing my reviews so I thought "why not try and get paid for this shit?"

Maybe try putting google ads on your site too, it will give you some extra cash (maybe you already got this though)

I have adsense on my youtube account, tried putting it on my website but it messed up somehow.

That one actually looks great.
I wonder what the average pay per 500 words is. And do they buy the games for you?

Oh, I gave you Dead Space on Steam that one time, right?

I've been playing other games for videos and reviews. Determined to play it this weekend actually when I'm at my dads.

Well I'd like to do a LP on it, but fraps is being a dick. It seems like one of those games that needs a facecam in the corner, I have no idea how to do that though.

record 2 separate video streams in different windows/programs at the same time, and match up the timeline?

I have windows live movie maker, hardly the best thing for this kind of stuff...
User avatar #70453 to #70449 - ticolai (07/10/2012) [-]
Inform me on what you mean?

I write video game reviews. Being disabled and unable to get a job I figured I'd try and maybe land a career writing video game reviews, however the first place I applied to laid out the above conditions, to which I wasn't happy with, and declined the "job".

I'm now on the hunt for another promising site that I can apply to.
User avatar #70459 to #70457 - ticolai (07/10/2012) [-]
Oh, I don't know if I'd be able to help you with that.
But may I ask, which site did you apply to?
