    Hi,

    I'm planning to open new Nintendo Wii fan site. At first the site will offer news, reviews, tips and forum... Before I open the site it would be good to have a lot of content that's why I'm askin your help :) If your interested in to write review for example of Wii Play (or some other Wii game) please PM me. I really can pay anything, but maybe some day I can... :)

    Here's a proof that I have already done something:

    Thanks!

    For 90% of the third party games just write "crappy PS2 port with waggle, 4/10"

    Like I said - I can't pay anything. I have done this kind of job for free and I can say that it's fun. You don't have to stress about anything... Just write when you have some spare time and inspiration :)

    So, if you have some free time and you are willing to help, please let me know.

    Do you at least provide the games for us to review?

    Anyway there's all kinds of content to leech from the web to get you started, without having to commission new content. My best friend from highschool made good setting up a site that provided free (totally legit) content including everything from reviews to sports info to pictures of Drew Barrymore (big search engine favorite back in the day, don't ask me why).

    This is the main reason why I need help. I don't have enought games to review :) and I guess Nintendo won't support site that dosen't exist yet.

    My target is to get this new site link to Nintendo's site: http://wii.nintendo.com/community_index.jsp

    Anyone?

    I don't see it happening. Lurk around in gaming forums and find people who have played games you want to review and ask for permission to publish their results. There are plenty of gamers out there and more than just the Wii fanatic macrumors folks.

    I agree with the 3rd party review idea. Pretty dead on so far.

    If you want to get on folk's radar give TP a 2 and Give Spongebob or Super Swing Golf a 9.5 out of 10....all the fanboys will ignite in rage and spread your site all over the internet faster than an out of nowhere 360 turn on the Wii COD3 :D

    It might not be good press, but it'll get you noticed...

    You can ask some people on the nintendo forum, but it is over crowded, and you have to to a bit of stuff, like 300 page views, but thats easy, just click refresh 300 times.

    This isn't how it works.. you should fill your site with some content, and if it's good then people will come and contribute. So far you only have a design template, and it's not really clear why the world needs yet another Nintendo fanboy webpage (why not just go to http://www.dsfanboy.com or http://www.infendo.com)

    One more hint: Ask somewhere else. I've the impression that most people here have the opinion that nothing should be for free :D

    ***END EDIT***

    Hey, I could help ya out. I enjoy writing some stuff. Just tell me what you really need, and I'll see if I can turn it into a sophisticated Wii review.

    Games I've Played:
    DBZ:TB2 or BT2 - forgot
    Zelda
    Elebits
    Red Steel
    Wii Sports
    Rayman
    Trauma Center
    WarioWare
    Metal Slug Anthology

    And I am sure of a few others.

    Next week I will have played Sonic/SSX Blur. Just hit me up with a PM, and I'll throw something together once I have time.

    Peace.
