Tarifying - A Gish Q&A

Games involving tar balls have gained an immense popularity in the recent past and meanwhile no publisher could afford not having at least one such a title in their portfolio. The latest developer to jump on this bandwagon happens to be Chronic Logic, the crew behind the acclaimed Bridge Builder/Pontifex series.

The Best Of Times, The Worst Of Times

Multiplayer gaming is simply the way things were meant to be. Sure, the finely crafted single-player experience offered by some true gems should be cherished, but nothing will equal the experience of interacting with your fellow humans toward some common goal -- even if that common goal is to annihilate each other in creative and entertaining ways.

The Promise of a Brand New Game

Certis sent me a screenshot from the World of Warcraft beta he's been...well...beta testing. He told me he was using it as his desktop wallpaper, and the minute I saw it, I understood why. In one simple image is captured the promise of extraordinary adventure. He who said a picture is worth a thousand words must have been bidding low. In this picture I see a thousand stories.


Pyroman[FO] is a real mystery to the GWJ crew. He's single, he knows programming, he's an excellent writer and he keeps his gotee well trimmed. He doesn't belong here, he should be off hosting Tech TV with that freak who wears a kilt all the time. Pyro would fit right in!  Just who is Pyroman[FO] and what is he doing here?

April 26 - May 2nd

A handful of truly notable games will see release this week, City of Heroes and Lineage 2 among them. While Lineage 2 has failed to gain any sort of foot-hold in our fickle forums, City of Heroes has managed to garner a following, if only to kill time until World of Warcraft comes out. Neither of these games however, are Game of the Week.

Star Wars, Bioware and Warez

The end of the week is upon us once more! You have the weekend to look forward to and the slow, creeping dread that Monday is just around the corner. Oh yes, I smell your fear and it intoxicates me! I've been putting a fair bit of time into the World of Warcraft beta this week so you can expect something about that soon, probably Tuesday.

Analog Madness

Anyone who played RavenShield with me last night should know that it was the first time I've really been able to sit in front of console or computer in a week. My father in law is staying with us and we don't really have a very large house. The guest room is normally the computer room / office. The console TV is also the only TV outside of our bedroom.

Something Looks Different ...

If you've taken a look around today you might have noticed a bit of a facelift to the site. We tweaked the theme a little, installed a templating engine and updated the News module. Now that we've got this shiny new templating engine installed, we just have to start changing things, so expect a few minor changes here and there in the coming weeks.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

I donÂ't like to travel. IÂ've probably said that before, but it bears repeating. I particularly hate flying on planes, not because IÂ'm afraid of plummeting toward the ground at fiery speeds – because, ya know, if IÂ'm going to go, IÂ'd like to go fast – but because IÂ'm very tall.
