Report abuse Podcast 17 - Dedicated, PC Gaming Reviewer Needed, Free Games Given!

1 comment by William on Mar 21st, 2012

Podcast 17, Podcast17.com, was just a weekly audio show in which William and a selection of co-hosts discuss mods and news from the Valve/Half-Life sphere. We have been around for over 3 years and hoping to evolve. Now it has also gotten into the review business and independent gaming sector and is continuing to expand further and further. The problem was that since many of the co-hosts were busy with the show, they were not able to keep up with the reviews.

So now we are looking for a dedicated reviewer who * Speaks and writes in English well * Able to keep to a schedule * Has experience reviewing * Be able to flexible and creative * Be able to do audio and video reviews

If you feel you are up to the task email gerardo@podcast17.com with a resume and at least 3 samples of your work. I will get back to you and we will continue the interview from there.

Although we do not offer direct payment we do give you do get 1) the game 2) a platform to present your article 3) the privilege of being part of a team or project.

We have our podcast syndicated over many sites with hosts/sources coming from multiple backgrounds including heads of websites such as moddb and developers at indie studios. This is a perfect place to showcase your work and maybe get recognized. Podcast 17 has partnership with many developers and publishers so there is always a game available to review!

Hello fellow ModDB fans,

This week on Podcast 17 we had a great discussion hosted by Andy, lead of Overwatch.  He proposed developing mods using an open source model.  What are the advantages/disadvantages?  What tools are available and other examples in the industry.  It's a great listen for all mod developers who are eager to move into a new way of development and publication.  Check below for the full list of participants as well as brief points of interest.

I would also like to take this opportunity to announce our Videographer position.  Full details can be found on our blog, but in short, Podcast 17 needs help moving into a video show for our live listeners.  If anyone has any experience using services such as livestream, justin.tv or ustream feel free to give us a shout.  Full details can be found here.
