Competition Monday - Win ShopTo Points


Welcome to Competition Monday, our new weekly competition which awards you points for your account in exchange for contributing to the site.

Here is what you need to do to enter.

Competition: Review of the Week

The title explains it all really. Basically, all you need to do is choose a game to review and get writing. Once you are happy with your review then simply post it in the customer reviews section on the relevant product page. e.g if you are reviewing FIFA 13 then search for FIFA 13 on ShopTo.net and post your review under the customer review banner.

In order to make it easy for us to pick a winner please try to stick to around 500-700 words. Also, we are not really judging on spelling, paragraphs, punctuation and review length. So even if you have never written a review before and are not confident, then please try.

Once you have followed the simple instructions above then all you have to do is let us know in the comments field below what game you reviewed. We will then choose a winner based on our favourite review and post it up on the news site for everyone to see.

If you are chosen as the winner then you'll win a whopping 10,000 points for your ShopTo account. Depending on the number of entries, there will also be a prize for the runner up, which consists of 3,000 ShopTo points.

That's it really.

- To enter you must post a review of your own words on the relevant product page for the game your are reviewing.

dunno what to do this week. Maybe Animal Crossing but it's really hard to explain to norms. I'm sure this week will be filled by Last of Us reviews, maybe I should do a bad game instead.

Thought I may as well join in on this, even if you don't win you're still helping to fill the site with reviews and help people find and try new games. I reviewed Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten on PS3.

How would people feel about me trying to put some vids up on Youtube to accompany my reviews? Or is that not an even playing field?

DO IT! Haha! I have a lot of respect for anyone that does VO stuff. I can't do it. My voice is too fecking deep and I'm really self-conscious about coming off sounding like Lenny from Of Mice And Men!

Good reviews so far too. I'm such a whore when it comes to reading everyone elses stuff. Robi, I wouldn't bet on too many TLOU reviews yet. Half of us haven't finished it yet!

No not doing VO vids lol, tried it for a while and it just takes too much work, i'm too lazy. I just mean like a vid to show what the gameplay is like if I can't really do it justice in my review.

Maybe. without the context of VO, i don't think it'll add much. Do it shep.

Well as it stands the now, my review for Remember Me will be kinda positive, so it will be nice to have a review from someone who absolutely loathes it. I might try doing VO work on it but my voice comes out all deep during recording and it's a pain to edit

Sometimes I really hate the PS3. Just realized that the videos that I recorded yesterday don't have any audio cos the PS3 can only send audio through one connector at a time. Damn It

What's a VO? I was going to give video reviewing a go, but getting time to do it and not be interupted by a curious cat, girlfriend or room-mate is a pointless endevour.

Voice Over, just roll with it if you get interrupted, you can always just edit it out

Also, I have no idea how to edit lol. I've uploaded a few FIFA videos, just for my club, and the video quality doesn't even look great. I just know how to put songs over the top with basic windows editing software lol. If anyone has a Elgato editing guide or something, would be appreciated, then I'd give it a go with my Scottish mumble.

What you using to record?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Oh and if you want to do V O work I suggest using Audacity, it's my personal preference

Elgato game capture HD. I've got a few videos just to show their quality under 'DannyRowe' username on youtube, but they don't look great even if I record in 1080i.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
How are the vids such low quality? I use a Roxio HD Pro and the Elgato is a lot better. What software and setting are you using to render them?
troublemaker's avatar
troublemaker 3 years ago
I prefer Sony Sound Forge for audio. It has the ability to drag in and render it to video. lovely!

Basically I have no idea about most of this stuff. I got my hands on the stuff, I basically plug it in to my PS3 and Laptop. I then record a game. I set the thing on my PS3 to '1080i' and I just record from there. Screen looks fine on the Elgato screen really. I then edit it by cutting on the Elgato software to get the clips on the video. I then save it either '1080' or mp4 quality. I figure this'd be fine. I then feed it in to the software that came with my laptop, Microsoft Editing stuff, and just put a tune on the top of it, and voila. I then upload to youtube.Are these audio things cheap btw? I would do audio live but I'd prefer a VO and it is a little out of sync the volume and picture on screen to my laptop.

Audacity is free and the video preview is meant to have the 2-5 delay

Did a review for a good game earlier, but couldn't put this one off till next week. Here's a bad game. Or more like a Bad Version of a Game. It's Walking Dead PS3 Disc Release http://shopto.net/video%20games/ps3/PS3WA17-the-walking-dead
