"I'm gonna need a weapon. I'm gonna need a big weapon." - Buffy

September 5th to 11th

"Labor Day is devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race, or nation" Sounds like an opening to me! Welcome to Gamers With Jobs Day, I hope you enjoy the holiday Stan has provided for you and play games in his honor.


I am rapt with attention. I am hitting the refresh button again and again. There is a kind of fascination, a fixation; it is a car crash in slow motion, taking place in front of millions. Even my apathetic hipster friends are overcome by it. We text message one another about warm fronts. A nation of amateur weathermen. A nation of rubberneckers. No one is immune.

GWJ Hosted in New Orleans (Backup Plan)

Gameguru.com will be our official shelter if/when the site goes down again due to the situation in New Orleans. From there we can push you along to a new host or at least give updates.

We have months of speculations, hype, false information, pre-order scandals and more to look forward to and I hope here at GWJ we can maintain some small island of sanity in a sea of hyperbole.

Day of Wrath and Doom Impending

My Notepad window is presently only half-maximized. Behind this familiar and stolid contrast of black-on-white, there swirls a turmoil of vivid yellows, reds, and purples: an animated satellite view of hurricane Katrina, as it bears down on my ancestral southeast Louisiana and the city of New Orleans itself.
