Welcome to a freshly grown Monday, ripe with possibilities yet dripping with despair. We have a fairly quiet week for releases with only a couple noteworthy titles hitting stores. Next week will be much busier so save your pennies if youÃ‚'re on a budget! TodayÃ‚'s Game of the Week is Otogi 2 for the Xbox.
This week, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Working on the staff here at Gamers With Jobs is a pretty satisfying job. Sure, it's not an actual job where you get paid or do any real work, but there's a great community to hang out with.
I recently thought that someone should write an article critically examining the gaming industry and its habitual issues with delayed products and false expectations. It should, I thought, be an article that takes an unflinching and unbiased perspective, measuring carefully a gentle balance between the starry-eyed desires of consumers with the realistic constraints placed upon developers.
Dr.Ghastly is a gentleman and a scholar. Don't let his rough and tumble waysÃ‚Â or strange choice of life partners lead you to believe otherwise! I mean, we all go through that period in our lives when you want to experiment right? Who can honestly say theyÃ‚Â haven't goneÃ‚Â out drinkingÃ‚Â only to wake up next to a Wookie in the morning?

Besides that, opening donations up for a set amount of time allows us to offer some cool raffle prizes so we can give a little something back!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians! While the Americans slave away at their jobs we'll be eating turkey (for the second time maybe) and passing out on the couch. Why, in my stupor I might even watch the Packers game to seeÃ‚Â how much more abuseÃ‚Â FavreÃ‚Â and McNair can take before they fall apart.
Tribes was my first real internet game, it nearly consumed my life during my first semester at college. Adjusting to life at college was hard, nobody told you when to get up, when to go to bed, or even when to attend class.
Today we feature another military man who found us while stationed in Iraq. After posting an ungodly amount in a short period of time he quickly became as essential to this community as milk, bread and a stick of butter are to your kitchen.
EBGames.com failed me again, for some reasonÃ‚Â they didn'tÃ‚Â list Tribes: VengeanceÃ‚Â so it didn't even get a mention in The Week Ahead. Sway, Pyro and I had a great time with the new demo a couple days ago and I found the beta to be both exciting and rife with jet packing.
