May - A Month In 3scapism
Posted on Saturday, May 3 2008 @ 12:01:11 PST
First off, I must remember to plug Hey Joe's infamous blog (http://www.thejadedprime.blogspot.com/) again. It really is a great causal read for those of you who may be a tad bored with 3scapism's single-content policy.
Secondly, many of you may have noticed our two newest team members: Gigantor (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/view/Gigantor) and Tendo82. Both have already made a valid contribution to the blog, and will continue with helping me out miscellaneously. I'm still looking for an artist and full-time publicist, mind. If you fancy helping out with one of the fastest-growing independent community sites on the entire Internet - opening great opportunities in the industry and our own network, then don't hesitate to contact me on the forum (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/view/Melaisis).
Furthermore, The Escapist themselves have launched a competition (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/326.59315) to encourage you all to write a specific review for them. Although it carries a rather restrictive word-cap of 500 words, it is a prime opportunity for the community (and those names on 3scapism especially) to show their writing supremacy and actually win something from it. I personally cannot think of a better way to penetrate the journalism world by having an official article on The Escapist.
Finally, I'd like to ask all frequent viewers to take note of such events as these (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/9.57134?page=1). Currently, turnout for gaming events is quite low (but it isn't that much of a problem anyway due to the type of games we play) yet playing amongst your fellow forumites can be a huge boon. Especially when you gang up against strangers in huge plots to take over and win the game, or something. Sign up to the 3scapism group on Steam or the Unofficial Gaming Group on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=14683488626) to keep up to date. From next week onwards, 3scapism will also have a small segment on the main page, allowing you to see when the next event will take place.
3scapism's Expansion Efforts (3EE): Amongst the new staff acquisitions and take to gaming, we've also been featured on the front page of Game Revolution again. Furthermore, my own age-old article about how film-makers need games (http://www.3scapism.net/2008/01/games-dont-need-movies.html) marked my première into Gaming Radio Network's e-zine. Anyone - whether you be a website designer, artist or writer - who wishes to contribute to such a prestigious publication should contact Gavriel at Gavriel@GamingRadio.net and name-drop 'Melaisis'.
None-review thread of the month: Does humanity need one more higher civilisation ? (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/18.59409) Seriously, its like the strangest thread I've ever had the misfortune to read.
None-Zero Punctuation feature of the month: Team Roomba (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/issues/issue_147/4856-Team-Roomba).
Video of the moment:
Good luck, and good game.
