It was a rainy Friday afternoon in Germany, the perfect time to take a look at some upcoming games. I decided to visit Silver Style Entertainment since they are located at a nice, calm spot in the northern part of my beloved home town of Berlin. Actually, I guess I got on their nerves long enough to get an invitation to check out a development snapshot.

TheGameguru

Gameguru is one of the more interesting members of the GWJ community with his shady and mysterious "insider knowledge" and dire predictions of the downfall of gaming. When not stirring discussion in the forums and saving us all he seems to be on the prowl for the "next big thing" in technology and gaming.
It's not often that we do demo impressions here at Gamers With Jobs since everyone tends to download these games on their own and they can see for themselves how good they may be. Take the Unreal Tournement 2004 demo for example, it would be redudant since anyone remotely interested in the game has already played it.

Feb 16th - 22nd

Happy Presidents Day to all of the Americans who read the site. For those of you lucky enough to have a day off from work I might as well call this "UT2K4 Demo Day" since that what may of you will probably be playing.

One Dark Night in College

It was a year ago that I asked Certis if I could post a special Valentine's Day comic for the site. He reluctantly agreed and I took that as an invitation to post them every Friday since. I've usually tried to avoid going for the easy laugh. I know "boogers" is a funny word. Trust me. In fact I just laughed typing it now.

Some people have been asking me what the criteria for choosing who to profile is. Right now having a custom tag, being a donor, a girl or simply an interesting person helps. When it comes to actually posting the profiles, the ones who send pictures in will always go up ahead of the others.

The Gaming Parent

There is, if theatrical cartoons are to be taken as a pillar of modern philosophical thought, a circle of life. The more I think about it, the more fatalistically hopeless this revelation seems to me.
In what is fast becoming the standard way for MMORPG's to gain some new users, Artifact is now offering a 946 meg seven day free trial of Horizons through Fileplanet. The catch is that you must be registered at Fileplanet although I don't see anything that says it is for "subscribers" only. As you download the game you will receive a CD-Key by email that will let you sign in.

Drunkagain

We're very pleased to be launching a new community feature here at GWJ. The Employee Profile will showcase various members of our forums and give everyone an idea of who they're talking to all day when they're supposed to be working. For the first few rounds of questions we'll be doing posters with over 1000 posts and then we'll expand from there.
We compiled the list of donors to the site and randomly drew the three winners! Once again, the three games up for grabs are Medal of Honor: Rising Sun (Xbox), Mark of Kri (PS2) and NHL Rivals (Xbox). The winners were chosen completely randomly and the first name pulled gets first pick on the games, second get the next one and last gets what's left.
