Halo 2 - Hands On

Yeah, you read it right. If you're wondering how GWJ got behind the scenes for a closed door look at Bungie's big sequel, you can rest assured that we're just as mystified.  What can I say, sometimes you get lucky.  But lucky or not, Halo 2 was at E3, and we got to sit down and play some of its upcoming Live supported multiplayer.  Yeah, it was a high point.

Sway is at E3, Too

Elysium wonÂ't stop reminding me I Â"workÂ" for a gaming Â"websiteÂ" and I have a Â"responsibilityÂ" to my Â"readersÂ". I suppose thatÂ's his subtle way of telling me I need to post. So here I am in the media center (which IÂ've never actually seen Elysium leave) to tell you what IÂ've seen.

Images from E3 Day one

If a picture says a thousand words, then for once I don't need a big long overblown intro: Surprisingly, they let us in.
I'm posting this in the hopes that my fellow gamers who have separated from and abandoned me will add their occasional thoughts below.  I know it's crazy, but maybe Certis can even plug his camera into one of the plethora of provided media PCs and show you what it's been like here.  However, if he posts the pic of me watching World of Warcraft I want to assure you I'm not

E3: Day Zero / Day One

The Day Before E3: From inspiration, to procrastination, to implementation, to anticipation, to action; an unusual path for me in acting on any project. I never have trouble boarding the train at the station, but inevitably I ask for an early exit long before reaching any ultimate or useful destination.

Certis (CEO)

Pulling "The Man" out from behind his cloak of shadows and mystery should promise for some epic reading, at least if you've got nothing better to do, and as we head into E3 week I've had a chance to do just that.  Certis, who wears the title of CEO like a freshly earned Boy Scout Badge - right alongside his Medal of Sarcasm and Delegating Authority Patch - is most visible on th


After some extensive research I've found that not many publishers are stupid enough to release a game during the week of E3. True Crime for the PC will be out but that's really all we've got coming. Instead, I've decided to make a bold prediction about what the hottest game of the show will be.
Look, I know itÂ's hard to be creative.  I try to make some effort on that front every week through these articles, and sometimes even I just give up and write an article about how the internet is both good and bad.  This kind of surrender to lack of imagination is like the local news doing a piece on the value of exercise, or rap songs about shooting people, theyÂ're just the sp
The wrap up this week has some interesting bits. LucasArts gets a new President, TechTV gets the axe and we find out being a game developer really, really sucks. As usual you'll get to hear our witty commentary and insightful analysis. Though after we type that sentence we keep talking anyway.

Can I Hang My Screenshot on the Fridge?

I finished the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos single player game last weekend. I had restarted it countless times. I've had to restart it because every few months I uninstall the game after a particularly frustrating string of defeats during multiplayer games. But I always come back and reinstall.
