Here’s what we used to look like


At VG Newswire, editors will look over each and every piece of content prior to publishing and will help guide you towards becoming a better writer. We love video games at VG Newswire. We wake up every morning excited to deliver the news to our audience, and receiving free video games from publishers and developers is only the cherry on top.

Yours truly, Peter Lopez, is a trained news reporter who conducts original news articles within Associated Press guidelines (inverted pyramid).

The awesome staff at VG Newswire also loves to engage in conversation via podcasts, online editorials, or just through social media, and every opinion is, of course, respected.

So, what say you friend? Do you have a passion for online reporting and want to meet and greet individuals and professionals from within the games industry? Feel like going to E3, PAX, and other industry events? Not only do we want to join forces with good writers who are serious about reporting the news, someone who lives and breathes the news, we also want to bring on-board amazing individuals with personality. Someone who can be a friend to other staffers. Why not bring your personal friends along through the process as well — the more the merrier.
