Sonicmaster here, and I've got a question. If you want to be a reviewer, do you have to be able to buy games yourself? Becuase I think it'd be cool to be a reviewer, but of course, I can't get points whenever I want.
I have trouble finishing games.

Well first off you'd have to send us a sample of your work. Lots of readers write in asking to be reviewers, but only a few are chosen. We're always trying to improve our standards so the barrier to entry is much higher than it was in the past when Corbie slipped through the net
Generally reviewers buy games themselves, but from time to time we will gift them if possible.

I could probably do it, I've done it before, but I'm not rich.

Halo OVRPRCD = new title.
60 bucks for essentially an expansion pack (to the world's most generic fps series, but that's a different topic entirely)...i just don't get it I guess.

Yes, I may start a topic when I get home ranting about my hatred of Halo and see what others opinions are... oh goody

When the game is Karate Phants, I think the reaction will be more muted...

Karate Phants? What the heck is that?

Well, if you're really curious I just so happen to have a review:
15. Posted: Thu 23rd Jul 2009 17:34 BST
"This game is terrible. I play games on the 360 all day long that look way better. 0/10"
There's my submission. Maybe I should send it to IGN as well to secure my future review job.

Eh. I may ask my mom if I can get a blog where I can review games I have. Oh, and the reason I started this thread was wondering if I could get free games.

It depends on whether or not the developer is doing free samples or how hard-up the editors are to get a game reviewed ^_~ -- yes it's possible to get free games. Whether or not that's actually worthwhile is questionable. I did not pay for Karate Phants, but I don't think that was a bonus. Getting Minon: Everyday Hero and 5 Spots Party was pretty cool, as is getting gifted games to review from PR folk for my blog, though I will say I solicited neither.

There are times when you do have a buy a game yourself. Just depends on the publisher and the PR firm. But it is nice to get some free games. Especially the good free games.

I'm practing by putting reviews on my blog, and I'm learning as time goes on. I would be glad to help...

So, occasionally you get free games, but most of the time you have to pay yourself? Oh well. The only reason I cared is because I likey free games
