Do you actively seek out closed/open beta games?

Not actively, but if a game I'm following is going into beta I'll try and get in on it.

 

Do you use any website in particular to find your beta games?

No, like above, I usually find out a beta through the game I'm following

 

Do you use any websites for news and reviews?

I watch Totalbiscuit on occation to see his opinion. I usually get all my video gaming news through /v/. As for review sites I disagree with how most of them run so I don't go to them.

 

Do rating systems for games mean anything to you?

No, infact it's reasons like http://www.joystiq.com/2012/03/15/obsidian-missed-fallout-new-vegas-metacritic-bonus-by-one-point/ that I think the rating system is over estimated by developers and needs to be scrapped.

 

Are you interested in writing news and reviews on beta games?

News yes, because there's always new information coming out of betas. Reviews on the other hand no. Although you can get a good opinion on a game by a review, a lot can change from beta to launch. Or atleast thats what should happen.

 

Does seeking out beta games and emailing companies interest you?

Nope. Sounds like a lot of legwork to play games when you can get finished ones easier.

 

Would you play beta games on a reviewing basis?

Nope, because like I said above, beta is beta. A critical downfall for a title could easily be scrapped by launch. Assuming the beta is to test the game and not just used to build hype as an early playthrough.
