Throughout the year we get a lot of requests from people asking how they can donate some money to the site. While we always appreciate the offers we never want to be seen passing out the hat too often. 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.
Next week we will be opening the doors for those of you who want to donate to the site. Same as last time, it will last for a week and we will accept donations through PayPal and snail mail. Donors will get a key under their forum name and those who will be donatingÃ‚Â for the second timeÃ‚Â will get something a little different, key 2.0 perhaps.
Welcome to GWJÃ‚'s new home! Hopefully everyone is getting here ok and we can carry on doing whatever it is we do. If wallets could breathe I expect yours would utter a sigh of relief, there really isnÃ‚'t much anything coming out this week. Things are looking so sparse in fact that the game of the week was almost going to be pie.
As I'm sure some of you may have noticed (if your ISP hasn't caught up with the change yet) GWJ has switched to a new host. TacticalGamer.com has been kind enough to offer us some server space so we can continue to grow the site and re-enable GameCal.
Some people say we're living in a society that's a slave to consumerism. Every waking minute, we're either buying or consuming. We've always got some billboard, radio or assorted glowing box telling us what we need, when we need it and where we can get it. What if you don't need it?
A year and one day ago SwampYankee registered in the forums and GWJ is still in the process of recovering. Whether you've taken a trip (to the ground, nose first) in Swamp Air or lived under his vicious rule as commissioner of the GWJ football league you have to admit that Swampy is a pillar of the community.
