ProtoCulture's 1st Review: God Of War

The ProtoCulture's God Of War Review

Myself and and a few real life and online friends are putting together a gaming/pop-culture site called The ProtoCulture (yes, named after the Del song). I just started the forum up and some of the content of the site will be posted there for the time being. The site should be up around mid-April. Go check out our 1st review, i think it's pretty good. Stay a while and register while you're at it. It'd be much appreciated!

*edit*
Yeah, and if any of ya'll are interested in helping out the site in any way, hit me up on AIM. We're looking for people who want to write and are fairly good at it.

I clicked the link. Took me about 5 minutes to figure out it was a new board and not just a link to the Gamespot boards cause it is identical.


But I'm kinda hungover so maybe thats just me.

I think that's it. Although I haven't been to the Gamespot boards in like a year, i'm pretty sure the board i made doesn't really look like theirs... but i'm about to go check now... ]

*update*
Nope... looks nothing like it... it's just you.

Yeah, I really havent been there (gamespot) all that often, maybe like 10 times in my whole life. but I swear that is what the forums used to look like. Maybe they changed, I dont know, or really care for that matter. It was just the first thing that occured to me when I clicked the link is all.

Yeah, it's gunna' be some work, but we'll get there. No way to get there if people don't support up until that point though. That said, I don't expect certain people here to be interested or supportive in any manner. You know... like, most of the people who have replied to this thread so far.

Hahah... I was just saying, those reponses were expected from those people. It's their personalities... atleast online. Not saying there's any deep seated hate or anything, same thing the other way around.

There's nothing the differentiates your site from any other video game review site. You don't have exclusive content, and your rating system is nothing unique. Sorry, but I don't see any reason to "visit" your site more than a "pro" site like Gamespot, IGN, Gamespy, etc.

I'd recommend using a name that isn't already well-used. Have you even Googled "protoculture?"

...and pre-release copies and the reviews are no longer posted in a forum by someone we don't know.

What's the difference between this and reader review you find on ebgames.com? Nothing.

All the same, good luck with it.

Oh yeah, drop the cliche "M$".

It's just where the review is right now, because the site isn't up. We figured we'd post early content in the forums. He's one of our writers, so he wrote a review. How exactly are you supposed to "know" him? Just like any other site has writers, and they write reviews. You only know them now because they've been doing it for years and are now part of established sites, which we will some day be. Makes sense?

Every site has to start somewhere, it's pretty illogical for anyone to think we would have exclusive this and thats when the site hasn't even launched. It's going to take time and hard work, but we'll get there. Trust that we'll be running some features and doing some things very unique to our site.

Sites like GameSpot and IGN didn't just start off with credibility, well known writers, and exclusive content. They had to build up to that. I think it's a pretty simple concept that you should all understand. We have a good group of intelligent and dedicated people working on The ProtoCulture, and I don't see any reason why we won't be up there at some point.

Also, The Proto Culture was an idea I took from a Del The Funky Homosapien song... look it up... it's about gaming...

or just go to my myspace page and click the latest blog... the song plays there, and there's also a preview of the site look...

I think what he meant was that is was just some random guy's review, like you can find on millions of other forums. Not exactly the most reliable information.

The fact that you call him a "writer" doesnt really mean a whole lot.

No, but a lot of magazines and websites have people who've gotten journalism degrees and know something about the business.
