FAQ

What is ScrewAttack?

Pretty much we're here to make you look good.  We started back in February of 2006 when we realized that the video game industry forgot it was supposed to be about fun.  There are a lot of websites and companies that have forgotten this.  LAME.  Simply put, our goal is to produce the best, most entertaining content in the world for gamers and feature your content while doing so.  We know there's a lot of talented people out there looking for a platform for their stuff to be seen.  We are that place... and we have an awesome community to boot!  Once you're here you're a part of the family.

How long has ScrewAttack been around?

ScrewAttack officially launched February 15th, 2006.   In internet age that's like.... 92 years old.

What the heck is a "g1"?

A g1, in short, is what we call our community members.  There's no real meaning to what the "g" or the "1" means so don't go getting all crazy on  us thinking there's a deeper meaning.

Your video player sucks.  I can't watch anything/it loads slow/it's not YouTube's.

Here's some steps you can take to ensure everything will work right:

  • right click on our Springboard player, choose settings, you'll see 5 tabs on the bottom, you needs to click the first one on the left and disable hardware acceleration.
  • make sure your flash version is up to date.
  • make sure you he has the latest drivers for his graphic processor.

What's up with your review scale?  You guys seem to give lower scores than other sites.

On a scale of 1-10, most websites consider average games "7's".  We're a little different in how we do things.  We call our review scale "the bar scale".  Say you were going to a bar with your friends and you were to see a girl (or a guy) and you "rate" them.  Oh, don't judge. You know everyone does it.  Anyways, most people consider an "average" looking person to be a "5" on a scale of 1 - 10.  With that in mind, that's how we rate our games.  5's are average.  10's you want to do bad, bad things to. 1's... well.... you want to punch just for being there.  Got it?  For more info check out our Official ScrewAttack Reviews Guide.

How do I get my blogs and videos featured on the front page of ScrewAttack?

In short, make awesome stuff!  We will personally promote any worthy content you write to the top of the front page!  It's a great way to gain exposure for your content and writing as well as challenge you to always be your best. Look for the [Community Showcase] label in the title for any g1 content on the top page.

Community content is also automatically promoted through a very sophisticated formula (aka computer magic) that takes views, comments, facebook "likes" and twitter "tweets" of your comment into account.  The more popular your work becomes, the better opportunity your content has to be promoted to the front page.  NIce, eh?
