OPC Magazine - Issue 04 - Contributors Required!

[ Edited ]
40 Replies 1,501 Views edited 19-10-2012

Hi folks!

 

Have you seen our Forum magazine? There are three issues of the OPC Magazine so far and we're really proud of what we, the community, have achieved so far...

 

Issue 01:

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion/Introducing-the-Official-Pla...

 

Issue 02:

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion/Official-PlayStation-Communi...

 

Issue 03:

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General-Discussion/OPC-Magazine-Edition-3/m-p/1...

 

 

So now we're ready to start the ball rolling for issue 4, which we expect to be publishing towards the end of January 2013. To that end, we're looking for ideas for reviews and articles and any other features that you want to see in the magazine - and that you're prepared to create for us!

 

In order to meet our deadlines, we'll need you to have written things up well in advance, but there's no immediate hurry - you've got until the end of December; so if there's some game hot on your Christmas list, perhaps that's one for you to review. Maybe you want to write a retrospective of 2012 or a forecast for 2013? Or something completely out of the blue?

 

We'd love reviews of new games especially, but if there's an old favourite PlayStation game, or something you feel has been unfairly overlooked in the past, feel free - see the first three magazines for inspiration.

 

Let us know in the thread below if and what you'd like to contribute - preferably by the 14th December, so we can plan the issue. We can't promise to take every article but as long as it's reasonably well written, don't worry if your spelling and grammar aren't completely perfect because we have a small band of tortured pedants trying to tidy up your prose in the background (though it's hard work in some cases and we don't always have that much time. :P)

As an aside, we're thinking of making more of a feature of 'bite-sized' reviews - so if you're a little strapped for time, but want to chip in, have a look at the reviews of Arkedo Series Jump!, SBCG4AP Ep 1 and Dead or Alive 5 in Issue 3. If you can put a 500-600 word review into that format, we might build a whole section of mini-reviews like that...

 

Big wordy reviews are also good. :)

Yes, but I now realize the mag is only out in january, so it might be a bit outdated by that time...

Not at all! In the last mag we had reviews for games that came out last year. A byte-size review of Derrick the Deathfin would be brilliant!

Looking like some awesome stuff for the next issue :D

If you haven't already, may I suggest you start to think about your articles and starting to get them written. We still have a bit of time but time does fly and I don't want you missing out on getting your article in the mag :)

Not 100% sure on the final deadline yet but it'll prob be mid-december time.

Cheers.
