Gaming Articles is a main area of MGL and includes all our impressions, previews and editor opinion articles. You can also see posts from the gamer dads here for family games.
Below is a list of articles we cover on MGL along with a brief description of what they cover.
Editor opinion is where the MGL gamers write their opinion on gaming. Whether this be the industry overall, a specific game or format. We talk about all things gaming on MGL and encourage readers to get involved too.
Gameplay Diaries | Gaming Articles
Gameplay Diaries are where the gamers on MGL record impressions of their gameplay in a series of blog articles. We talk about the game as we play it, giving our impressions of the game’s features as we build to the official review.
Following Gameplay Diaries on MGL
Unlike a Let’s Play Video, a gameplay diary is a written log of a member of our team playing through a game.
The release of our gameplay diaries will depend on adherence to embargo rules set by developers and when we receive games.
If we receive a game at the same time as it releases, rather than rush an official review we will update the site with regular gameplay diary entries giving impressions, thoughts and experiences as we play through the title.
Once the official review is completed we will usually use this as the final entry.
Gamer Blogs are for the community of gamers here to share their gaming experiences. We run an open submission policy to gamers who want to blog about their favourite, and not so favourite games.
What’s in the Gamer Blogs?
Here gamers blog about their gameplay and may submit videos from YouTube along with other fun examples of gaming prowess. This may be an opinion piece on a game, a character, a developer or even a gaming format.
Other blogs may include a look at the gaming industry in general talking about the battle of the consoles or upcoming games that could be a big hit or a bit miss.
We encourage our members to contribute regularly and really bring some interesting gamer blogs to the MGL readers.
Indie Dev Blog
The MGL Indie Dev Blog is where our friends making indie games have the chance to share their latest updates on the games they are making.
In the Indie Dev Blog, game developers can submit any kind of update to MGL they want to on their game and keep our interested readers up-to-date. This can be anything from a little bit of detail on their game or an update on where the development process is up to. It may also be a final run down of the game’s features before they launch.
There are so many cool indie developers out there and we want to bring you the latest updates here on the MGL Indie Dev Blog.
Impressions from the MGL team on the latest and upcoming video games. Here we give our opinion based on hands-on time with video games.
These include early access games still in development, Beta builds and gameplay from conventions.
We love to play games and we play a number of titles that are currently in development. Sometimes these are from events and others we play early access versions of titles via steam.
These will be written in a similar tone to a gameplay diary but also include more critical points similar to an official review. With games in progress we will never give them a review score but we will give our thoughts on the game.
Interviews with video game developers are always interesting to gamers and here you will find our written and recorded conversations with the gaming industry’s development teams. We speak with all developers from the big companies to the indie devs, getting as much variety as possible.
Interviews We Love to Share
Everybody loves talking to the people behind the games, and on MGL we like to share written and video interviews with developers as much as we can.
As a UK based gaming site, expect us to focus on local developers with interesting stories to tell. We do also get interviews from all over the world of course, talking to the big companies in gaming to the smaller independent developers.
Previews on upcoming titles in gaming. Here we look at PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC games as they are about to release, with in-depth analysis of the features and potential of the game.
