Video Game Reviewers Wanted

Blend Games is looking to add two reviewers to our ranks. While we can't offer money at the moment, what we can give you is a chance to try out new releases and have your written impressions viewed by a wide audience. It's a great way to break into gaming journalism or fatten up your existing portfolio.


  • Must be a United States resident - Cinema Blend is a US-based company so having reviewers in the same country makes the process of getting review copies to them a whole lot easier. This also saves us the trouble of deleting the extraneous u's from your prose. It's spelled "color," damn it.
  • Must own at least two of the following systems: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, DS, PSP, iPhone - Reviewers that have access to more than one system allow for more flexibility in our planning and for us to cover a wide range of releases. The side benefit of this requirement is that it tends to weed out people who are solely interested in singing their chosen platform's praises.
  • Must be able to write clearly and on a deadline - Pretty much everyone who applies for this position is going to love video games. While that's great, we want someone who also loves to write about games. It's not just a matter of saying a game sucks or rocks - you have to be able to articulate your feelings and justify your attitude. Why is that boss fight such a bore? Why do the controls work so well? It's not easy to do this, especially on a deadline. If you don't have any interest in the writing side of this job and you just want free games, it's going to kick your ass.

In order to apply, send a cover letter to with the subject line "Blend Games Reviewer." In the letter, just briefly outline your experience and explain what you hope to gain from this position. A resume isn't necessary. We do require a writing sample, though. Paste a video game review (old or new doesn't matter) into the e-mail or, if it's posted online somewere, list the URL.
