    So i was bored at work and went to ebg@mes.c0m and checked to see what games are coming out soon (just got my ps3 fixed). As I was reading reviews/preview comments from others for one of the games, something hit me. As I have my own game/tech review blog, I obviously write the content myself. But for those that hire people to write them, I thought this would help save a bit of money outsourcing and time.

    You can grab those reviews/preview comments and give them to your writers for a rewrite as oppose to having them write totally unique ones. This might save you a buck or two per article or even more since rewrite cost less than writing from scratch.

    So with this concept, ebg@mes.com isn't the only place for game related reviews. g@mespot, ign, even gaybay are also good source of review contents for you to grab and rewrite.

    Hope this helps someone :)

    I say - make a google search on popular sites like those and copy all the urls. Then create new custom search engine of google and add them together.

    So now u have a search engine which will give u quick ideas to write topics faster ;) been doing this from quite some time.

    I have to say that i am slightly confused. How do you go to an email address and read reviews. I may be just missing something. Please explain further this sounds interesting.

    i didn't mention anything about email, but their website, ebg@mes.c0m for example, has customer reviews as well as preview comments for each game. You can copy them and ask writers to rewrite them as oppose to asking them to write from scratch, which generally cost less just to rewrite.
