Cast your eyes on this from the Italian Forums..

 

http://www.community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Eventi-della-Community/PlayStationzine-Il-magazine-uffici...

 

It's completely generated by different users over on the Italian Forum, It's looked after by a small base who collate articles from various users. They compile it and make this epic magazine using the following site http://issuu.com/explore

 

Do you think something like this would work on our side, would anyone be willing to take on such an epic project?

 

Anyone have Desktop Publishing skills they would like to offer??

 

Let me know your thoughts/ideas :Smile:

From what I can gather, the Italians produce this quarterly, it certainly looks very professional (and I'm jealous we don;t have anything like this!)

The Fraanch have a similar thing going on across the channel:

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Discussions-G%C3%A9n%C3%A9rales/Community-Mag-Le-webzine-grat...

I'd be happy to try and help out with design ideas and some artwork, but as for desktop publishing and actually putting it all together I'm a little clueless...

Right!! So we have a rough design template which can be seen below:

 

 

What we need now is content!

 

ideally, I think we need...

 

- at least 3 game reviews

- a decent sub theme.and article i.e. 'games you must own' as an example really. open to any suggestions.

 

An article from someone who went to a vita room event would be great, if you have pictures, even better!!

I'd love to get involved. How contemporary are we looking at reviews? Classics or newer releases? eg. Journey, Uncharted, LBP

An idea for a feature - in the wake of the Kara tech demo how Heavy Rain changed the landscape for storytelling? It needs a little refinement but something like that.

A sub-theme could be Journey's release and other top PSN-exclusive games out there.

I don't know these are some ideas, anyone else be happy to develop them or add your own.

I think there is scope for any reviews to be honest, I want this to be a community magazine, so don't want to make too many decisions about what goes into it :D

 

Would be awesome to get an article on Quantic Dreams KARA tech demo though!

nice one guys, cheers for the offer of help :)

@ tallpaul - how'd ya like to do a review of one of the games you've got on the vita ? I know you spend a lot of time on there at the mo :) any hints/tips, take a look at rich's review i've popped in the example vissy posted - just to give you an idea of length and content etc

@ NateC87 - as vissy said, an article like that would be great. or anything you'd like to write about really.

please let me know if you're both happy doing the articles. i can then start to build the pages ready for your text :)

ps - if you're happy doing them, once complete, can you PM them over to me on here.

^ good question :)

 

nothing set in stone at the moment but i'd like to get it out there early april if possible.  would asking for it to be completed by next weekend (17th/18th) be a push?

 

if that's not enough time, just as soon as you can really :)

 

cheers.

No problem at all.

 

I'd love to write a review for Journey too and a 'Top 7 PSN Games' piece (or something like that). If it's not used for this issue it could possibly be used for future editions...

awesome buddy, go for all them.  that would be fantastic.

 

the aim is to have the mag released quarterly(ish) at the moment.  i can certainly use those 3 articles you do in this issue :)

 

just let me know what 7 psn games you'll be writing a bit about - just so i can sort the graphics out etc for the page.

The seven I would inclue in the piece would be:

 

(In no particlar order, apart from Journey)

 

Journey

Dead Nation

Flower

Joe Danger

Shatter

WipEout HD

Super Stardust HD

 

Would it be possible to see a the page once you've laid it so I can get an idea for a word count for each?

^ won't have chance to look the page design until prob next week really. plus other pages i'm currently working on.

it depends how you want to do it buddy. do you want to do the 'journey' one as a main review and the other 6 as mini type of reviews (or just a brief description write up)

for the main 'journey' review, it'll be put together similar to the unit13 one in the mag already - so, approx 500 or so words is fine.

around the 150/200 mark is fine for the others - though i don't want to limit your creative juices :)

don't feel pressurised to write too much or too little, just what you're comfortable with.

all work will be credited to you in the mag. thanks again for your help, it's appreciated.

Can we set up a Google doc so we know who is doing what, as this can be edited and also 7 may be a little ambitious for one issue or will it be alot of pages? Presumably we would like input from many authors? Community members or is it just a select few?
