Resident Evil Resistance

Win a Switch Lite or a $50 gift card with We The Players

  • Comment
We've partnered up with WeThePlayers.com - a new gaming site created by former Nexus Mods staff-er BlindJudge - to offer you the chance to win one of 6x Nintendo Switch consoles or 30x $50 Steam gift cards by creating an account and reviewing a game! Full details from the man himself below...

It has been a while since I've posted on Nexus Mods and I feel privileged to be invited back to tell you about a project of mine. Those who have scrolled these pages pre-2017 may remember me as the previous Director Of Content at Nexus Mods (BlindJudge). A few highlights of mine were; heading up the redesign of the website, interviewing Mod Authors for the Sunday Discussion and hosting a few AMA's with people like Elianora and the owner of Nexus Mods, Robin Scott.  


Since then, I have been busy working to create a new grassroots community-based video game hub and have kept in regular contact with the Nexus Mods team for feedback. The site has been in development for the last two years and I'm pleased to (finally!) say that it is ready for people to try out. Robin has been supporting me and my venture from the start as a Director in an advisory role, having built Nexus Mods up from nothing to what it is today he knows how to build a community, I am grateful that I can always rely on his advice (and sarcasm).  



Our site is 'We The Players' and provides gamers with a platform where they can search, rate and review titles that they have played -be it the latest AAA release or a game from the 1980s. Players can create collections of games for any reason they can think of and upload screenshots and videos of their gameplay. We want to be the site that gamers visit to find their next game, read reviews from the gaming community or to showcase their gaming lives through collections and media.
 

It's only the very beginning for us, with this release being our BETA. We are adding new features to the site regularly. We want to hear from you, the people that love gaming, and so we are open to feedback and ideas on what to develop in the future. 
 

We would love for you all to be a part of our journey, and so would like to extend an invitation to sign up and become a founding member of the site.
 

As an incentive, each month for the next six months, we’re going to be giving away a Nintendo Switch Lite for our favourite review, and an additional 5 x $50 Steam Vouchers to a review by Nexus Mods user (selected at random).


To put your name in the hat for these prizes, you need to add a link to your Nexus Mods account in the services section of your We The Players profile. 




Then, for a chance to win one of the Steam Vouchers you simply need to submit at least one review on We The Players. That is you entered from that point onwards.  Each month we will be taking a read of all the reviews and collections that are created and will be giving away a Nintendo Switch Lite to one that catches our eye. We'll be judging the entries based on total kudos, view count, style and formatting as well as the content itself. A good review doesn't have to be positive, but it does need to be constructive and have substance. Here's an example of a really good review and a great collection to give you an idea of what we're hoping for. 

We’ll be contacting the winners each month via private message on Nexus Mods with details of how to claim their prize.

The Community Managers Pickysaurus and BigBizkit already have their profiles set-up, so feel free to go and take a look at them:
 
https://wetheplayers.com/user/pickysaurus
https://wetheplayers.com/user/big-bizkit
 

My profile is TokenGeek, click here if you want to take a peek.
 


As you can imagine, we have two main hurdles at the moment that you could help us with. 

  1. Getting community content - Whether this is simply rating games that you have played, past and present, or writing reviews and creating collections.
  2. Awareness of the website: Spreading the word to gaming friends, and sharing your content on social media and Reddit.com would really help us out in this regard.
 
You can find us on Facebook and Twitter where we post updates, giveaways and showcase users of the site. We also have a new Discord, where we discuss gaming in general and host giveaways.
 

So what have we got in the works going forwards? Well, we’re working hard on sorting out our API for external use, creating pages for all the Developers and Publishers so that all the games they have released are easily accessible, and adding achievements and leaderboards into the site. We’re also looking at the various API’s for game platforms so that your game library can be imported into the site for you, making it easy to rate and review titles you own and create interesting collections. 


These last two years have been quite the slog, but we truly hope you like the site. Big thanks to Robin and the Nexus Mods team for all their hard work and help on WeThePlayers.com, and thank you for reading this post. We look forward to welcoming you onto the site.

How to Enter

As a quick recap, to enter the event you need to do the following:

  1. Create a free account at WeThePlayers.com
  2. Hover over your avatar in the top right and select "Edit Profile".
  3. Click on the "Services" tab.
  4. Scroll down to the "Nexus Mods Profile" option and paste the full link to your profile (e.g. https://www.nexusmods.com/users/31179975)
  5. Don't forget to click "Save"!

Once that's done, each time you leave a review for a game you'll be entered into the prize draw. You can tell the world how much you love to mod Skyrim, how Stardew Valley changed your life or how Blade & Sorcery is the best VR game ever.

    My review was about New Super Mario Bros Wii, I've been playing this game my entire life and have been looking for a platform to talk about it. This came at just the right time. I will definitely write more reviews in the near future this is really amazing "grazie amico".

      The first winners will be picked at the end of July. As the news post went out on the 26th June it was rolled into July. That way we can dish out Nintendo Switch Lites and Vouchers up to 2021.
      The winners will be contacted at the end of this month and 'hopefully' a post will be put out to let others know the winners.

    You guys checking for plagiarism in the reviews? I feel many might exploit the giveaway by simply copy-pasting other reviews from other platforms.

      It's a fair concern. For the moment, we have reporting functionality for users to flag content for moderation. This flags it to TheTokenGeek and myself to review.

      Over time if we need to more actively police this we will.

      For this specific giveaway, we will be reading all the reviews ourselves and using our best judgement and will try to check for plagiarism as part of this process.

    So how are the winners being selected? Like, is it just a random drawing of individuals connected to the Nexus site and one gets pulled from a pool, or is it you guys pick a review that you think is best (regardless of whether it's for or against the game) and go from there? I really like the concept btw!

      We'll do a random drawing of anyone with their Nexus profile linked in their services section, and written reviews on the We The Players website for the Steam vouchers.
      The Switch will be given to the review that has caught our eye that month (I am already shortlisting my choices of reviews as I read through them). We don't have to agree with the review, but instead just like the writing of it...

      Oh good, that seems like the best way to do it in my opinion. I'll be setting up an account today and I've got some (hopefully) good reviews to share. Thanks for answering my question, I wish you and your group the best of luck in this endeavor, and I hope you have a wonderful day while staying safe :)
