I'd go to Wargamer once a month or so and look at reviews.  Regretfully, I found that most of the reviews were pretty superficial based on very little play time.  It is understandable, the publisher wants as much immediate news on release as possible.

I never write a review without playing it for long enough to get a feel for the game.  That usually translates to 1-3 months after release.  That is unacceptable for a house organ website.

Speaking of which, I need to take the time to write up a review of PanzerKreig which was quite good in most ways.  I even have the screen shots finished.

I'd only visit WG to find my old articles from way back when.

Let me know if you find any that aren't credited properly, BTW. I know it's a problem but I can only fix them as and when I find them, or they're brought to my attention.

Decided to revisit one of mine. It's still there but the images are missing, I presume due to the migration.

I still have my copies somewhere if you want to put them back. Not sure how much effort you want to undergo restoring years-old reviews.

Oh, plenty of them are set to Scott as the author, but it's not that big a deal to me to be honest.

I have all of the original articles and images archived on my home PC.

I firmly believe in credit where credit is due, but fair enough.

If you ever change your mind, just PM me a list of links and the proper credit name and I'll replace them all.

I like the Wargamer. I drop by every day or so just to keep-up with the latest goings-on. I never was a big fan of the forums though-- much more fun here where you can, like at the 'Carwash', act the fool without starting a war. Usually.  :coolsmiley:

WargamerJoe has no doubt done a fantastic job with the front end of the old site. We'd hire him here, but I don't think he would be interested in a salary of beer and cigarettes. The fringe benefits are great though...

I guess we could give him access to The Lingerie Channel...
