What A Difference A Week Makes

So, last week was a great week to start this new column of ours.  You guys were waxing oodles of clever, thoughtful, gaming commentary on the bountiful topics laid at your feet.  I guess all that news and debate left you guys, and the industry, a little spent.  Last week I was literally beating away your witticisms with a stick; this week, not so much.  I feel like a man trying to use

Good Day and Well Met, Rex

Sway is out gallvanting in some place that doesn't have any internet or "inty" as he would normally put it. I've got the comic here and I'm looking at it but.. damn, I don't know what he's shooting for today. I think I'm just going to assume he's making fun of Elysium and leave it at that. Have a furry Friday!

Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots

I'll Save You Some Suspense: It's Fantastic! Big Huge GamesÂ' Rise of Nations was arguably the best PC game to hit the shelves last year, and one of the best real-time strategy titles ever released. Its gameplay is incredibly complex, but so elegant as to remain more than manageable, more than playable, but also fun.
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.

Star Wars Galaxies - One Year Later

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 Devil's in the Details

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.

Several weeks ago I went to a massive arcade in central London with a group from an Internet message board. All of us were gamers, none of us mainstream.

GWJ Shirts & Mugs Now Ready for Order!

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? We have created a t-shirt which brings the sexy stylishness of Stan along with the hilarity of Sway's Space Invaders comic.

June 28th to July 4th

Welcome to Spider-Man week! On Wednesday the Spider-Man 2 movie opens in theaters and itÂ's already garnered some very favorable reviews. On the video game front all eight million versions of the game ship today. The PS2, Gamecube and Xbox versions look great and have a very favorable buzz. The PC version on the other hand, is something that should be avoided at all costs apparently.

Mod Week Wrap-Up & Neotokyo

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.
