After the 'drought' in the late 90s we've seen a surge of pirates-themed titles in the past 2 years thanks to games such as Port Royale I&II, Tortuga, Sea Dogs, Pirates of the Carribean and, well, Puzzle Pirates. And more are to come due to projects like Pirates of the Burning Sea and the Pirates! remake being in the pipeline.
Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. Sony's back on the warpath pushing Star Wars Galaxies with aggressive free trials, high profile previews of the upcoming Jump to Lightspeed, all trying to illustrate how the game has and will continue to improve from its, one might say, inauspicious beginnings.  I certainly had my day in the sun with the game, s
The other day I heard a sound that I'm sure most of you have heard at one point or another. It's an irritating sound that grinds till your ears just have to ignore it. Most people drown it out quickly, I know I did. But something the other day reminded me of it. You see, it's that sound non-gamers sometimes make when you let something about gaming slip.

It's been a long time coming but we've finally found a company we feel comfortable with handling the official Gamers With Jobs swag! You wanted mugs? We give you the best mug ever created since God first thought them up. You wanted t-shirts?

The PC version on the other hand, is something that should be avoided at all costs apparently.
This about wraps up our UT2K4 mod week. I'd like to send a shout-out to the Air Buccaneers and Unwheel mods for showing potential but having next to no server support, hopefully that will change in the future! We might revisit the mod scene once some more have come out and matured a bit more.

Welcome to our new and improved Weekly Wrap Up.  Instead of pretending that we have the last word on the news of the week, weÂ've turned the reins over to our forum community, and each week weÂ'll be posting your comments on the biggest stories.  Of course, IÂ'll get my say too, but you already know what an ego maniac blowhard I am, so donÂ't look so surprised.  Na

She's Not Even a Real Wood Elf

Have you taken a look at the EverQuest 2 E3 trailer? Actually...have you taken a look at just the main EQ2 page? Looks like the father of all MMORPGs has taught his son well. That lady is H-to-the-O-to-the-T! Forget those low-poly night elves in World of Warcraft! I've got a good video card and a hefty processor.
"Everybody's private motto: It's better to be popular than right" - Mark Twain People say that popularity isn't everything, though those people are usually in high school and are talking from inside a locker. Still, I have a tendency to dislike popular things. I don't wear name brand clothing, I don't drive a VW Beetle and I don't have an iPod.
