Welcome to the July 2020 monthly writers' thread!

This thread originated as a short-lived series in 2018, which was ultimately suspended due to lack of interest. The writing team is hopeful this new series will be more useful to the community.

In this and subsequent threads, you can:

  • Find upcoming reviews, previews, and articles
  • Pose questions and make recommendations to the writing team

Please share you constructive feedback, your questions, and your suggestions for future op-eds, articles, and reviews! We aim to produce the kind of content you wish to read.

Thank you for your patronage and support!

Edit 7.31.20

The good folks at tinyBuild have shared with us a giveaway code for Hellpoint on Xbox One. It's a sci-fi Souls-like set on a space station orbiting a black hole. It supports online and split-screen co-op. The game launched July 29, 2020.

If you're interested in the code, please reply to this post and let us know 1) your favorite Souls-like game and 2) why you enjoy it so much. Everyone who responds will go into a random drawing for the code. I'll announce the winner at 8pm ET on July 31.

Hi all! After a long hiatus, the monthly writers thread is back. We hope you'll share your suggestions for future content, alongside what you think we currently do well — and where you see room for improvement.



Glad to see it back :)



I am currently sigless.

I'll put a plug for my upcoming Zelda article here. I dug out my GBC and Link's Awakening cart to replay the game. Check it out:

After this, it's Ocarina, for which I'm super pumped :)

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

That is something I don't think any of us had thought of doing. I can see what people think.
