    Hello all,

    Some of you may have heard of 'TweakTown Gamer' - a project that has been talked about for quite some time.

    Basically, it will be a site connected with TweakTown that will deliver the latest news, reviews, et cetera in the gaming industry. This will include games for PC, Xbox, Playstation 2 and Gamecube. (And Dreamcast, if we find anyone with one ;)).

    What we are looking for at the moment is anyone who would be willing to volunteer their time to write articles, or provide news, for the site.

    Initially, it will simply be on a voluntary basis, however once the site takes off we hope to be able to provide review samples, etc to our writers.

    If you are interested, please either PM me (Osiris) or email me at;

    gavinballard@tweaktown.com

    with a brief outline of what you are interested in (news, games, general articles, whatever) and if possible a brief (2-3 paragraph) piece of writing on whatever topic you choose. This is so we can get a rough handle on your literary skills.

    Thanks very much, I hope that many of you will be able to contribute your time towards making a great site even greater :).

    ~Gavin Ballard

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    IMPORTANT

    I wish I didn't have to say this, and frankly I didn't think I would have to, but I must say that plagurization is not acceptable.

    I've just received a submission from a writer (I won't name them) which I thought to be genuine until another member of staff pointed out that it was pretty much a direct copy of another site's review.

    This sort of thing is never tolerated on TweakTown, it will never be tolerated at TweakTown Gamer.

    Please, submit applications with your own work.

    My first review !


    PONG:

    When I first picked up my copy of pong from a local toy dealer I was excited to the point where I almost wet myself, this was all just from buying it. So your probably wondering what made me so excited, well I shall tell you from start to finish, I ripped open the package and pulled the cartridge from the box slotted it in to my machine and fliked the switch which greated me with PONG in big white blocked letters with a flashing PRESS START text underneath, my eyes widened with excitement, I hit the button to get things going and the main menu gleamed at me asking me 1 Player or 2 Player, well as I was on my own I thought I would give the amazing AI a go and try and beat him at his own game. 4 Rounds later it was time for a cigarett and a beer and to go get another game from my local toy dealer.

    Score 10/10
    Graphics 10/10
    Sound 10/10

    System Specs: Your thinking will Pong run on my computer, well the answer is yes, I tested PONG on my 4Bit Poo Machine and it ran so fast and sweet with no slow down from all the pixles moving about. So if you got more then 4Bit your in for a treat. Go get PONGED. :thumb:
