By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 8 June 2009 11:39 GMT


We’re looking for someone to cover the Gamescom day-shift this year. The Cologne show runs from August 19-23.

Is it you? Are you “the one”? Questions you may ask, answered:

Will I get paid?


What do I have to do?

Write an awful lot of news very quickly, not be stupid, not ever moan ever.

I’ve never written professionally before.

Sorry, dude. We’ve got very little time to train.

Will I go to Germany?

No. You’ll be sat at your PC at home, crying onto your soon-to-be-arthritic hands.

If it works out, will I be able to do more?

You’re a sharp cookie.

Sounds amazing! Please let me do it!

Mail patrick [at] and we’ll consider it.

Go on, then. Hurry up.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
