Hello there folks. Happy Monday!
First of all, here's an amusing video of a bearded dragon getting his munch on to help deal with the shock of the weekend being over.
This week will see us usher in a new feature series as we look to consolidate some of the video coverage that we've been doing over the past year or so, and see how we can create clearer, more focused content.
With that in mind, we'd like to introduce First Contact -- a new series dedicated to first impressions and honest reactions. First Contact will essentially provide a snapshot of our first hour or so with a game, to be broadcast as part of an ongoing coverage process. First Contact could be considered the start of that process, with a game's review coverage (that includes post-review articles as well) forming the end goal.
We'll still be running Opening Scenes -- our completely unadulterated look at a game's beginnings -- for titles that are appropriate, and there may be some crossover between the two. But ultimately, First Contact is all about honest initial opinions, and delivering more insight into the journeys we take previewing and reviewing games. As crowdfunding and alpha funding and Early Access programmes continue to manifest and grow, the fluid nature of game development and our access to that is changing, and as a games site we need to be more flexible and adaptable in our coverage to keep up.
We won't be doing a Polygon and having a sliding review scale, but we will be providing more coverage and analysis around our reviews, and giving you more context and more information upon which to base your buying decisions, and providing more commentary and opinion along the way.
