Contest: Company of Heroes 2.501 Replay Pack

Post your replays and make some cash! There has been a dearth of replays, particularly replay packs, over the last few weeks. So, I call on you, good citizens of [my blog], with a challenge…

Go through your 2.501 replays, pick five or more games that exhibit great play, unique strategies, or good humor. These can be 1v1s, team games, or even Panzerkrieg matches. Post them in the replay pack forum. Whomever submits the best pack in terms of usefulness, hilarity, scale, scope, etc., will be awarded $30. All submissions must be in by Monday, the 20th of April.

Good luck everyone!

Jobs

Yesterday, I was accepted as a writer for the Company of Heroes portal at GameReplays.org. It should be a lot of fun, and some good experience writing news and features for a popular website.

I’m also waiting to hear back from Gamerzines to see if I’ll be writing for them as well. I really hope I get it, it’ll be a much more professional gig that GameReplays, and between the two I’ll get a good mix of experiences. And I’d be able to cover a much wider range of topics.

It’s an exciting time — it’s great to see my dream of being a professional journalist getting closer!

Guide: CoHO for Company of Heroes Players

Company of Heroes Online (or CoHO for short) is a MMO real-time strategy game produced jointly by Relic and Shanda, a Chinese online gaming company. In essence, it’s a combination of an MMO-like lobby area and the gameplay of the original Company of Heroes (or CoH for short).
