PC Zone Gets A Snoozer Invasion

Yay! Finally sorted out my work experience dates.

I'll be working at PC Zone for a week, (6th-10th July). I'm over the bloody moon, I can't wait. It should be really good to see how it all works, and it'll look uber sexy on my CV / Portfolio.

Haha, I've been warned.

My friend who completed his week a fortnight ago warned me that I'd be transcribing and reviewing utter crap. I do get my own desk though

So stuff like Barbie Horse Riding adventure, I suppose they have to get those sort of games reviewed somehow while maintaining their own manhood status.

Well played btw

Re: PC Zone Gets A Snoozer Invasion

Congratulations on getting the work experience will be good to go on your CV alone.

But i would ask you to take some advice

Giraffe and i was posting about E3 coverage
then in that post you recommended two other sites for live coverage.
If you can not see how harsh that is when we have done all the hard work and made an effort in going over to America just to report back on E3, then you need to take another look at how you are handling things.

If another users (or even worse... a new user) had done that, what do you think would of happened?
Just asking you to think how you are coming over at times.

Some of your posts and views seem to be getting posted without thinking about them recently, and keep in mind, this is how people will see you
I just wouldn't of thought this would be the way you would want people to know/remember you.

I wish you the best on this and like others above have said, reviewing or a column would be great opportunity for you.
Best of luck to you, do keep us updated on how it goes.

As far as I've seen, I've yet to see you post your captured live footage of project Natal. In fact, if I remember correctly, I was speaking to you on MSN when the keynote was being presented and neither you, or your hard-working writers, were in attendance, (if you were feel free to correct me).

Therefore, as project Natal really had to be *seen* (and I'm not referring to the stock marketing video, but live capture). Those interested would have to visit other websites on the internet. I merely mentioned said websites I'm sure people know exist, which if a crime, you should really be worried about the community you're portraying rather than being rude and suggest how I portray myself.

I'd had no problem if other users had pointed out something I'd was interested in. There's spam (which is a shameless hi, visit my forums) and then there's a loyal member suggesting you look at something interesting - the whole point of forums. The internet is based on linking after all.

Thank you for the congratulations, and I'm sure to let you know what it's actually like in reality. I've always wondered if it is as good as it seems.

N.B. (I apologise if you got hands on, (and footage), at the later days, which if on its way, I'll stand corrected in my decision to link to the two biggest games websites out there.)

Thanks for bringing this back on topic. Oh, you can bet you're life I'll have clippings if I get to work on anything that makes it to the magazine. Even if it's not named, and I've contributed to it, it'll get scanned.

This is exactly what I want to get into when I finish college. How win would it be if by that time you were the manager of the company, and I was coming in
