We (dcemu) have been getting into reviews recently, but most of our reviews are US based and a few uk pr companies have contacted me about sending review copies of games, but they will only send in the uk (to me).
I looking for reviewers in the Belfast area that pick up the games from my house. The only reward will be you can keep what you review (and have the knowledge that a few hundred people read the review), but if things go well we would like to pay our reviewers in the future (but I’m not promising anything).
If you live outside Belfast but still interested in reviewing, I could post them out to you. But pick ups would be preferable.

I’d be interested in that. I live in SW Belfast, but I don’t have a car so pickups might be difficult.
As for reviews I kinda do them already, just to give myself practice at analysing games and picking apart designs etc. So doing them more seriously is something I’d enjoy :)

I Live in south belfast (eglantine avenue).
What platforms can you review for?
If you sign up onto our forums, and PM me I will give you access to the staff review area. Also if you could write a review for the site of a game you have and is not reviewed already on the site, that would be a great start (and to see how good you are ;) ).

Still looking for more reviewers, as I said, I prefer people from or around belfast but you don’t have to be.

I don’t live in Belfast (Dublin) but if you are in need of someone with a PS3 and both handhelds, I’d be happy to help. I’ll have a go at Metal Gear Solid 4 and P.M. you with it in a few days. :)

great, we are short in ps3 reviewers, so that would be perfect. Can you review pc games too?
November 13, 2008 at 11:45 pm #42882AnonymousInactive
I can provide about 160 reviewers all in dublin i am afraid, lol well what i mean to say is i can offer up my college gaming society as reviewers . and since we have eveything from , freenlance 3d modelers , indie game designers , computer sciene students , causal gamers, competitive Irish team players, and professional q&a testers as members , it could make for decent reviews .

Cool stuff Dark. Is Metal Gear reviewed on the site? Would be cool to get some feedback on the one I wrote. Which thread lists all the available titles? I found one thread (the one with the Chaloner Associates Ltd list) and was wondering if there were other companies looking. I’m ready to go if you need someone to review any PS3, PSP or DS titles.
November 21, 2008 at 1:06 am #42932AnonymousInactive
No the metal gear review was not posted. Post it in the staff review forum, so the other staff can see it and give feed back before its posted to the front page.
As for game reviews, still looking for a reviewer for this pc game: http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=170253
We really don’t have alot of contacts at the mo, but we are getting more all the time, Chaloner Associates have been great with us so far, + we get alot of XBLA stuff.
At the mo I’m looking for someone to do a preview of Big Bang Mini (DS), they are sending a preview cart out (first 7 levels, I think), would you like do that one?
BTW could you contact me via the dcemu forums in the future (via pm or just make a topic in the staff review forums) as I don’t check gamedevelopers everyday (sorry guys :( )

Hey Darksaviour, is there a problem with the DCemu site? I haven’t been able to access it all week.
February 9, 2009 at 4:21 pm #43397AnonymousInactive
eDen, just sign up to the dcemu forums and pm, me. If you can give me a sample of a previous review, that would b great.
Skynes. The site has been fine, what problems have you had? is it the whole site or just the forums?
February 9, 2009 at 7:57 pm #43399AnonymousInactive
I get this:
The document contains no data.
The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.[/quote:239283a760]
it’s the entire site, every page.
Edit: I ask if it’s the site cause I’ve tried to access it on both my PC and my wife’s laptop and got the same message on both. So it’s not a problem with my firefox.
February 10, 2009 at 9:47 am #43403AnonymousInactive
weird, the site has been working fine, we have not noticed any drop in visitors. are you having trouble with any other sites?
we got a link from engadget yesterday
nothing major, but a extra 2000+ hits for the saturn site, but reading though the comments no one said that could not access the site.
February 10, 2009 at 1:08 pm #43405AnonymousInactive
It’s odd. I have no problems with any other site, everything works fine. Rebooted router, flushed dns, did all the usual net correction fixes.
I managed to get to the site by going through a proxy server. But from my end I can’t access it at all, I can’t even ping the host server. I just get timed out.
February 10, 2009 at 7:27 pm #43408AnonymousInactive
that is weird, I’ll ask Martin (our hosting guy about it), or might get wraggs to reboot the server, to see if that fixes it. If your having the problem, who know how many more are having the same problem
February 10, 2009 at 10:49 pm #43409AnonymousInactive
Dunno what was done, but it worked. I can see the site again, yay.
February 11, 2009 at 3:40 pm #43415AnonymousInactive
I spoke too soon ><
New day and the problem returns.
February 12, 2009 at 10:07 am #43420AnonymousInactive
I got wraggs to reset the server the other day. I guessing that fix it, for a while…. i’ll send and email to martin asking what the problem could be.
February 16, 2009 at 8:23 pm #43435AnonymousInactive
that should be fix now (access to the site)
February 16, 2009 at 9:53 pm #43436AnonymousInactive
Works at the moment. If anything else comes up Ill let you know. Thanks.
February 17, 2009 at 5:26 pm #43441AnonymousInactive
Yep, after shutting down my PC the site is gone again.
Really wonder what on earth is causing this.
February 22, 2009 at 3:13 am #43478AnonymousInactive
Martin fixed it that time (it was blocking loads of people) but for what ever reason it has happend again, and Martin has be MIA recently. Hopfully we will get it fixed completely soon
BTW i got a review copy for Ceville (pc) if you want to do a review for it (this time its not a DVD-r ;) )
July 1, 2009 at 4:51 pm #44274AnonymousInactive
Need more reviewers again. I really need a PS3 reviewer for a PSN game, but other reviewers welcome
December 10, 2009 at 1:41 pm #44975AnonymousInactive
Going to bump this again, Looking for more reviewers

Hey I wouldn’t mind giving this a shot. I’ve got a PS3, 360, Wii, DS, PSP but my PC wouldn’t be a fantastic gaming rig?
Unfortunately, I too am in Dublin but I’d be interested if you are looking?
