I've been meaning to write a review of Dragon City, but you know, with my high-powered jet-setting lifestyle, I simply can't make the time. But seriously, I'll write a review of it sometime and you can have the credit!

I used to get requests for game reviews occasionally.
Got an FAQ request from IGN years back too.

Not really. I mean, I have all of my stuff up on terrisus.com, but other than that, I pretty much just submitted stuff regularly to GameFAQs and IGN.
Won a few Review of the Month contests over on GameFAQs over the years, so got a few gift cards for them.

I used to do a bunch of things when I was a Knight of Hyrule (moderator) over on Nintendo's old NSider message boards.
But, those closed down back in 2007, and we were all just kind of left by the wayside. :cry:

Yeah, nothing like that for me, unfortunately.

I'm sure I could've parlayed it into something more worthwhile, but never really had the drive/motivation/kept waiting for something ideal to just fall into my lap :\

it was something i did mostly in high school and college. it really helped my writing skills since we had a group and we would proofread each other's writing and I used that opportunity to improve.

i also established some writing skills from the role playing chats I used to be a part of since we would occasionally do longer stories

Yeah, as much as people make fun of their boards, the GameFAQs Review Contributors board really helped my writing a bunch back around 2001-2003.

I mean, MUDs back in the 1990s did as well, but still, it was kind of the next step of progression.

got another couple games to review, one I gave to my "staff writer" and one I'm doing personally.

i only have contact with one company but its not like i have time/staff to dole out this kind of work a lot anyway.
