Old Video Game Talk reviews?

Considering how old the video game reviews are at the top of the VG Talk forum, is there any way to just put the DVD/HD reviews there instead? It looks like something is broken in the forum when our top video game review is for the original Skylanders.

Not trying to rip on the people who wrote those reviews as I know that's hard work but it's so outdated that I don't know what purpose it's serving up there.

Re: Old Video Game Talk reviews?

I'm surprised there hasn't been any public talk of re-launching the VG review page with the new consoles out. Makes sense to me since it's actually a decent name for a webpage.

I keep reading that NHL 12 review just incase it updates to NHL 14, but it never does.

We'd need reviewers and mods willing to make it happen.

Re: Old Video Game Talk reviews?

Until then, can we replace those headlines in the forum? Just looks kind of silly.

I remember!

Our two hurdles were finding a group of reliable reviewers, and having some PR contacts at game companies that would send us games to review, as we do with DVDs and Blu Rays. Were you able to make any progress?

It's not quite as easy as you expect. Having done that work for Videogame talk back in its infancy, there's a lot of work that has to happen in order to get on lists for review product. They will base their choice on sending you titles on how much news you post, traffic you get on the VG portion of the site, etc.

Oh don't get me wrong; I wouldn't expect it to be easy. But it's pretty straightforward: if we have reviewers and games to review, we can absolutely do this! If not...

Now it's just one solitary DVD cover. It looks kind of hilarious.
