Greetings, Programs! Firstly, thanks for stopping by – your interest in our little site means a lot, and it’s great to have you here. Chips and dip on the table in the corner. Mingle a little.
We’ve been offline and out of touch for about two years at this point, but I’m excited to announce that PowerUP Online is back online. We’ve got a lot of new and exciting things planned for the future including weekly podcasts, daily and weekly Twitch streams, new articles, reviews, app highlights, and more. We’ll have daily updates (with Fridays being a possible exception) on our main page here, Twitch, or our SoundCloud. Interested in following us? Our current schedule is below:
PowerUP Weekly Schedule:
- Monday – No stream as we’ll be doing our podcast recording. Check out pwruponline.com or soundcloud.com/poweruponline on Wednesdays to hear our weekly podcast.
- Tuesday – DC Universe Online 8p – 10p EST (5p – 7p PST)
- Wednesday – Podcast goes live on SoundCloud 7p EST (4p PST)
- Wednesday – Andrew plays Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (first run) 8p – 10p EST (5p – 7p PST)
- Thursday – Tyler plays Game Dev Tychoon 10p – 12a EST (7p – 9p PST)
- Friday – Wildcard! Fridays are busy for us (and probably you), so we’re not committing to a stream at this time. That doesn’t mean we won’t be online, we’re just not planning for it.
- Saturday – Andrew plays Mad Max (first run) 9a – 11a EST (6a – 8a PST)
- Sunday – Andrew plays Chex Quest 9a – 11a EST (6a – 8a PST)
It’s becoming more and more challenging to post regularly as I continuously work on other projects. PowerUp is still something that I love doing, but I don’t have the time to commit to it that it really deserves… so I need your help. Entertainment writers, game and film enthusiasts, people with strong opinions… I need you! If you have any passion for the entertainment industry and are vocal about your passions and opinions, I’d love to hear from you. Simply send an email with the subject line “Write For PowerUp” to “poweruponline AT outlook DOT com” and I’ll get in touch with you. I’d like to hear your area of expertise; tell me your favorite movie, game, and band; and provide a brief writing sample in the body of the email. ABSOLUTELY NO ATTACHMENTS! Word documents, .pdf files, pictures… none of it. If there is an attachment, you will not be considered in any capacity.
Please note this is not a paid position. PowerUp does not have a revenue flow and is entirely for sharing your passions in entertainment. What I’d really like to see is some more views that differ from my own (I’m primarily an Xbox gamer, I have a Windows Phone, and I’ve got Windows 8.1 running on all of my computers… so, anybody who is outside of that Microsoft loop would be a breath of fresh air for my readers, I’m sure). I’d like to see PowerUp feature more mobile entries focusing on Apps as well as indie games. Film and music are also areas of opportunity.
Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to hearing from you!

I’ve been working some odd hours lately and haven’t had the time I’d like to dedicate to writing new posts. It’s a lot of work keeping this blog up and I know I’m falling far behind with maintaining my other real-life obligations. It’s disappointing that I can’t invest as much time in this as I would like, but it’s a necessary evil as a man’s gotta eat.
With that said, my whole having a hard time keeping up with blogs, I’d love to have help in maintaining PowerUp. If you’re a film, gaming, comic, or technology enthusiast with a love of writing, I’d love to have you on board providing content. If you’re interested, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include in the body of the text a little bit about yourself, what your area of expertise is, and a writing sample. Please, no attachments or images. I’ll get back with you when I look over your stuff and let you know either way.
