Welcome to the first of many monthly threads dedicated to the writing team here at VGChartz!

Even as the team spends a lot of time producing original content for you, we haven't had a proper platform to engage with the community. Now we do.

In this and subsequent threads, you can:

  • Check out the highlights from the previous month
  • Find upcoming reviews, previews, and articles
  • Pose questions and make recommendations to the writing team
  • Participate in game giveaways

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope this thread serves as a bridge between the VGChartz writing staff and the community, and makes the writing/reviewing process more transparent.

Please sound off below about what you've enjoyed reading so far, where we can improve, and what kinds of reviews/previews/sales analyses/articles you'd like to see moving forward!

This is going to be a whopper.



Well, this is new.

Nice idea for a thread. It also gives me a place to (perhaps one day?) express my incredible surprise if Krezzy ever writes a non-Vita article

Edit: And that upcoming Pokemon article by Spemanig sounds interesting. Anything Pokemon will catch my attention

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

There's also a possibility that besides the top 10 games you might have missed at E3-article, I'll be able to publish the next part of the Metal Gear retrospective (on Guns of the Patriots) this month, but that's still unsure at the moment simply because of how busy I am right now.



My Most Recent Articles:

1. The $70 Lie

2. Video Game Music Spotlight #16: Exploring the World

3. Forgotten Gems #11: Uniracers/Unirally

For my non-video game related writings you can check my blog below.

Please, please. PLEASE eventually cover Ghost Babel. Had no idea such an interesting game existed.

I'll do an article talking about the various spin-offs in general, so Ghost Babel will probably be covered there.
