Brash Games was launched in October 2010 by Paul Ryan, founder of AceGamez and Beeb Review. I simply needed a fresh challenge after spending 8 years with AceGamez.
As the Editor-in-Chief, PR Manager, Review Code & Competitions Coordinator and Webmaster, I have sole responsibility for sourcing review code from the publishers and public relations representatives and assigning it to members of the review team. I am responsible for sending the relevant links and cuttings to the publishers and I am responsible for all content including editorial, reviews, previews, news, features and competitions. I decide what gets published and what doesn’t, so I guess you could say I’m the big boss!
I remain the sole contact for Brash Games so If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me.
With the aim of providing magazine quality reviews online, our mission is to provide the games industry with an opportunity to showcase the various games platforms available at the moment, and to help you find the very best games around whilst steering you clear of the stinkers.
We receive PR from nearly every publisher in the UK and will be focusing on reviews which is what we do best.
What are we about? Gaming, that’s what! We’re just a bunch of avid gamers like you, who have a passion for the videogames industry and love to write about it.
We are looking to expand the website and are looking for talented, passionate journalists to join the team. Previous experience is not necessary; all we require is a flair for writing and a genuine love for the industry.
If you think that you fit the bill and fancy joining the team, please send across an example (review or blog) of your work (about 500 words) over to firstname.lastname@example.org at the earliest opportunity.
While the role does not pay in the traditional cash-money sense, regular contributors will be pushed up the review list quickly and will subsequently have a better chance of landing the triple-A titles come review o’clock. Our contacts here at Brashgames.co.uk are relatively extensive, so our review lists are usually very solid – basically, what I’m saying is; join the team, show a bit of commitment and you certainly won’t be reviewing shovelware every week.
We appreciate that folk are busy, so we’re not expecting content every day, just a steady stream of news stories and the such. Like anything else in life, the more you put into Brash Games, the more you will get out of it.
Ok, so that’s about it. Be you an avid blogger, a keen reviewer or podcast Jedi, we would love to hear from you.
Love and kisses.
So, whether you’re a long-time reader or new to the site, we’d like to welcome you Brash Games and invite you to become part of our growing community of people who are passionate about gaming.
The Brash Games Team
