Introducing Brainwaves


Share your gaming knowledge with the world using Brainwaves - an innovative new addition to Gamewise.

Brainwaves allows gamers to share their knowledge and start discussions about all sorts of topics, from news, to walkthroughs, top 10 lists and just about anything else you can think of!

The interface is slick and easy to use. You can even tag your Brainwaves with relevant content from the Gamewise database, such as games,  companies, characters and more. This results in a hugely social experience, where Brainwaves are shared between friends, but can also be discovered by gamers seeking out information in the database.

Here are some of our favourite examples of recent Brainwaves on the site.

Gamewise Celebrates Successful Beta Launch

Gamewise aims to build the definitive source of gaming knowledge by empowering and rewarding users for content creation

Birmingham, UK - September 10, 2012 – Gamewise today announced that only four weeks after entering public beta more than 10,000 user-generated pages have been created, covering subjects ranging from a list of weapons in Halo 4 to a comprehensive walkthrough for the new Skyrim ‘Hearthfire’ expansion.

"The response so far to Gamewise has exceeded all of our expectations" comments Dean Walton, Creative Director. “Gamewise gives the power of content creation to the gaming community - with a powerful suite of intuitive and easy-to-use tools, users can sign up in seconds and start adding content to their favourite game, character or franchise”.

Gamewise is built on a proprietary software platform dubbed the “wise platform” which aims to offer the depth of a wiki but the ability to form complex real-world relationships between entities to provide context within the gaming universe. Contributors are rewarded for all edits made and the most prolific contributors are able to progress and become “masters” of their chosen games and demonstrate their expertise and knowledge to the rest of the gaming community.

"Furthermore each entity can be "tracked" by users, allowing them to receive a bespoke feed of updates which are accurately matched to their interests" continues Walton. "Our aim is for Gamewise to become the go-to source of information for new and existing games."

Everything you ever wanted to know about video games…

Our aim is to create the world's largest fully-editable database of all things gaming-related.

…in one definitive place.

Our goal is to create the world’s largest community edited video game database.

Gamewise will catalogue and contextualise each entity linked to a game, from the characters that feature to the people and companies who produce them.  Every entity has their own profile and with the help of our powerful and user-friendly tools, anyone can create, edit and structure unlimited pages of quality content within them.

So whether you want to define the world in which a game takes place (locations, weapons, items, etc) or share knowledge of the facts behind it or how to complete it - the power is in your hands.

All of this is presented in a beautiful and clean format, within a website that is easy to navigate and structured with relevance.  Gamewise will always be impartial - it is self-regulated by the community and is the next evolution in user-generated content.

Added to that, Gamewise is a social experience - you can follow your favourite entities and other users in order to receive a bespoke feed of news and updates, which accurately reflect your interests.

The search is on for knowledgeable gamers to help build the most definitive video game information source in existence.
