Maybe 3 is harsh, but comparing it to the past versions of the game, it's just not got a patch on Melee and Brawl, personally. It's a game that's designed to be multiplayer, but plays best in single player yet has no sort of single player mode in the style of Adventure Mode or Subspace, hence most of it is just replaying the same few modes over and over and over again to grind trophies.

It's alright for a few hours and then that's it. Certainly would go no higher than 5.

Just got a bit more to write, then some touching up to do, but my inFAMOUS review is about 90% finished now, should definitely be sent in before the end of the week.

It doesn't really matter given that you can just half a score out of ten, but regardless, we use a fairly standard 5-star rating system. You can do halves though, e.g 3.5/5

Hey folks, I'm back from holiday and 100% on board to give this a big push. Let's get some momentum going!

I recognise at times Noodle does a better job of keeping this going than I, but that's not through a lack of care, I just don't appear on the forums as much as I used to. So yeah, please send anything you got to both of us.

And please, do fill in the form in the OP. Content is great, but having a regular team willing to contribute is what allows us to keep going, rather than begging for scraps. Additionally, while it never came to fruition in the first 4 issues, this is the GAAW mag, so art submissions are more than welcome! Even if you can find them elsewhere on the internet, send in a recent work you're proud of.

EDIT: I thought the form in the OP was to apply to be a team member, but it's just a layout for submissions. You should definitely fill that in too, but what I meant sorta still stands. We need regulars.

DOUBLE EDIT: Mods, is there any way to let two different members edit the same post? I feel like if me and Ed could share the OP it'd be handy, if not, maybe there could be two threads? One for the posting of the latest issues and another for discussing them?

No easy way of letting you both edit the same post I'm afraid. Best we could do is change the owner of the second post to you, so that you each own the top two posts. A second thread is perfectly acceptable too though, if one is for issues/comments and the other for content/creation discussion and submission. In fact that could work better.

Also, great to see you around TJ!

Okay, fair enough. I think the thread thing is the way to go, how you expressed it was exactly what I had in mind!

Teague, I can just send you the code for the OP as is and you can edit it as you wish and then send the code back. Seems easiest to me.

EDIT: Or we can do that thing, whatever's best for ya :3

Ed, TJ, you guys get that PM with the Second Son review in?

Also, when's the deadline for submissions for this issue? December is too vague if I'm going to do a WWE 2K15 review due to it not launching until the 21st of this month...

I got it. I think the aim is to get Issue 5 out for Christmas, so make of that what you will.

I think we can probably afford to narrow down the deadline to Mid-December. The fact of the matter is putting text into magazine form doesn't actually take too long, so it's something that we can be flexible about but obviously you have to draw the line at some point.

@Noodle Ahh, thanks! Either way sounds good, but if I were to make a second thread, that wouldn't have to happen for a while, so we can cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, I'll drop a PM if I feel like I need to make any OP changes!

Mid December is fine for me, then. Can get you the review by then easily.

Is this only reviews or is it guides as well?

Almost any written content is accepted. Just as long as it sticks to the general theme of media, and is well-written. So yes, guides are okay.

Currently working on a second opinion on the subject of a review that's been submitted. Also adapting a short review I wrote a while back, and editing a review of the first episode of the Fargo TV series that aired earlier this year. Once I've done all of these things, I feel I'll have done my part for issue 5, at least in terms of written content.

Apologies for not being on that much over the last however many days, but as TJ said, almost any written content is acceptable, so just send in whatever you have and we'll either approve or disapprove of it (most likely the former).

I was thinking of doing a little piece on Bee and Puppycat given that the series got going this morning, but it kinda speaks for itself, really!

(Go watch Bee and Puppycat)

I've never really thought about this, but how much content is needed, exactly? I feel we should add up so there isn't too much packed into one issue.

This is not to say you shouldn't keep writing stuff for the magazine, of course! If things keep up at this pace, we might even get an Issue 6 in.

Just so people know, I've tightened and refined the magazine's design as far as it'll go and begun work on what has been sent in so far. Which currently is two and half articles (translating to 5 pages). That's about 90% done at this point with minimal hassle.

So if people have more to send in, please don't refrain, even if you might want to hold it back to a later issue, send it in as soon as you can.

Yes, this.

I've got a couple more reviews to go in which I imagine will consist of 3/4 pages combined. They've already been written elsewhere but being me I feel the need to refine and extend them before they go into virtual print or whatever you want to call it.

Not right now though, I have drank far too much alcohol this weekend to do anything.

Brother's let me borrow Alien Isolation instead of Last of Us Remastered, so I'll more than likely be sending in a review of it once I've finished the game.
