Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

I can't deny the effort put into it. All those putting effort in obviously have done a great deal. What gets me is, I don't know who's going to read it. Who is the target audience? Who will read it regularly? How will it expand the GO userbase and bring people to LANs?

For me, that same effort could be put into a CMS to publish articles on a proper news site with RSS feeds being put out to news portals. That gets traffic. While they're in, get them on the game servers and get gamers gaming - that's where the lanners are, not people who read a PDF.

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

Its easily distributed,it can be spammed if needed - posted in signatures, bigger companies can get wind and chose to feature in there own magazines, theres lots and alots of places this can be distrubuted. Its the internet, the trailers, fantastic start there, people who see the trailer can see the mag, see the site and so on and so on

Think you are missing the point m8
THIS IS CONTENT FOR THE SITE
then put in to the mag (if you check the links)
we did a lot of research outside of GameOn for this
but either way, its what our staff/writers have wanted to put the time in to

and what better way to expose them self to the market for being a jurnalist plus how other companies look at us.

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

Gotta agree on the game servers route, that would get in the hardcore clans who should bring in the money.

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

I see this as only a good thing, getting the world around about GameOn is nothing but good news.

I like and WP all involved.

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

So whats next on the agenda for GO?, More gameservers with the idea of getting clans involved with GO again would be a good idea imo

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

Good mag and wp to all involved, but why is the 'photo a day' nonsense before any games in a GAMES magazine? (bar the trackmania interview).
Also, review some **** games (WoW, other wizard & goblin RPG ********, bus simulator). Everything scored very highly - a bit of variety wouldn't go amiss

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

I would just like to add my congratulations to all those that have worked so hard on this project. I have seen first hand what has gone in to it - having shared my dining table with djdawson for most of the last week (I could walk past him in the street and would not know him - but I would recognize the voice anywhere )

I think the end result looks fantastic, really professional and a real credit to all those involved.

WELL DONE ALL

Mrs R.

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

Good effort on everyones behalf, it looks (from a quick skim) well produced and slick.

But I've been involved in another site (Gamestyle) many moons ago that did a downloadable version of the site IIRC it lasted about 3-4 very sporadic issues the thing that came out of it was that why would people download an electronic version of the reviews etc when they can read it online via the site?

I have to say that the best way of getting bums on seats at a lan is through gaming itself not a gaming magazine and IMHO the best way to do that is to have GameOn Game Servers that would generate revenue and be a perfect driver for getting people to a LAN

Well, we did want to push the fact we have a very active and busy community, showing what the community can put in the mag makes it much more interactive
We can hope that more people will get involved in these smaller side line community site of things

(lol @ WoW)
We to be fair we have put some of the lower score games in
but this is an 1st issue, so come on, how silly would it of been to put in a load of "non heard of games" or crap games
Wouldn't really encourage people to read the mag or read next issue.
This issue we just wanted to try and cover as much of the variety of user tastes as we could

Lots more ideas are coming to the mag

and on that note, if you want in on ideas/layouts etc
just get in touch to join the team m8.

The way the mag has been done its not much work to put up
plus as we said above, were trying to help promote the guys working for us as well.

tbh m8, game servers do not = money nor bums on seats
but this is GameOns Mag to promote us and our staff, not for LANs

I cant see what people's problems are tbh
its a great concept and idea and don't take up much time from now on, but give us loads of exposure

Absolutly fantastic work mate, it's unbelievable that you have managed to get this up and running with all the site set back. Keep up the good work and hope to be a part of it in later issues

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

I think tbh people are being a bit over critical.

It's a very good start. It looks professional and I'm sure over time it will get even better.

Congratulations from me on a job well done to all concerned.

Re: GameOn Launches Its own FREE online Gaming Magazine

so out of interest
how many of you have either Internet phones / PDAs even PSPs

as this is also the market we are targeting
cant see how being able to view a web site offline (or carry a mag or 20 in your PDA for long trips) is a backwards thing.
Net isnt always there for people who are out and about.
