Xboxyde is looking for help!

Xboxyde is looking for help!

Snoopers and I are flying to Tokyo for the TGS in a bit more than 2 weeks now, and we realize (a bit late) that we only have one part time news writer who will be able to post news during the time we are working on the showfloor (and visiting the city of course). This is of couse not enough, so we are looking for new news writers. Here are the job requirements: Knowing the Xbox and Playstation worlds very well, being able to write correctly in english and basic HTML knowledge are mandatory, with knowing how to encode videos and being already active on our forums being very big plus. You also need a lot of free time for the TGS week (September 20 to 25). If you are interested, please send us a sample news (3/4 lines) with your full qualifications to n00b_at_xboxyde.com.

About the reencoding: it's really not hard, and a guide about it could be written by us. It's just that it will probably take 4-5 hours to learn it all, but then it should be fine.

Thats the reason why reencoded videos often look so ... average...
(Not complaining about you here, but it happens pretty often... even here. But then I don't know what the originals looked like)

Of course you're not a master after 4-5 hours, but you know the general stuff. I learn new stuff everyday, and I use more advanced program (or extensions to programs) than a first-user will use.

Hello guys. I´m Brazilian but I know enough of the English language, I think. I´m almost finishing my english course (4 years).

I really want to make part of this. I already sent the email, hope you like it and I can help.

Commented on 2006-09-03 01:03:12
Why the hell not, let's give it a shot. My native language is English so I'm safe. :-D
Commented on 2006-09-03 01:51:01
I'm pretty fit.........no actually I'm not. I can't guarantee you I'd have that much time in September, so I don't think it's right for me to get this "job" as there is a chance I'd dissapoint.
Commented on 2006-09-03 02:01:51
I think I fit. Actually I´m almost sure. =D

I already sent the email... and posted at Playsyde too.

Please I wanna do this :D

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
