Exclusive to Premium subscribers.
Hello! If you haven’t been around the site much in the last month you might not know that we recently launched a supporters program. You can now subscribe to Eurogamer to view the site ad-free, get early access to the new Eurogamer Podcast, read some exclusive posts and more. You can read more about it in my announcement post and you can sign up here.
One of the things we’re doing for our Premium subscribers is Ask Eurogamer: exclusive live Q&A sessions with the Eurogamer staff on a range of topics about our jobs, the site, and of course the games we love and the industry we cover. We’re going to hold the first of these tomorrow (Friday 22nd October) at 3pm UK time, and it’s going to be all about reviews.
Joining the chat will be Oli Welsh (that’s me – hi), editor-in-chief, former reviews editor and dyed-in-the-wool critic; and staff writer Chris Tapsell, one of our most talented reviewers who has handled some of our biggest recent reviews, including Humankind, Returnal, Cyberpunk 2077, Ghost of Tsushima and all the Pokémons. You can ask us anything you like about the job of reviewing games and the changes it’s undergone (I’ve been doing it for 17 years!).
That chat will take place in our liveblog interface – the one we use for live reports of E3 press conferences and the like. We’ll post the liveblog earlier in the day, so if you can’t be around at 3pm you can pop any questions you would like answers to in the comments early and check back for the answers later.
If you’re a Premium supporter, I hope you’ll join us for a chat – and if not, I hope you’ll consider signing up. Either way, as ever, thanks for reading!
