New York, NY
DescriptionDualShockers is the brainchild of two passionate gamers from New York City. At DualShockers, you will only read real gamer news, real gamer reviews, and real gamer editorials. All of which will be garnished with some good ol' fashioned New York City attitude. We want to provide a unique and diverse perspective on this industry while continuing to inspire gamers to love and enjoy gaming without the necessity of negativity and flamebait.
DualShockers values honest and unbiased writers who write what they feel without feeling creatively constrained. Applicants must have a sheer obsession/love of gaming, and a great conversational writing voice. A mild dose of psychological disorders is also welcomed as sanity won’t be too much of your companion in this business.
If you’re unsure of how to structure an article for publication, don’t worry we’ll help you work through it. Some of our best editorials have been collaborative efforts!
The position is non-paying but if after a month, you show that you've got the chops, you'll get free games to review, be invited to partake in exclusive access at conventions, and depending on your location go to gaming events in your city.
You want to the world to know your thoughts about gaming and tech? We're here to help you be the best! We've had writers go on to work at some major gaming companies and publications, so this is the place to start.
Join us at DualShockers!
