The Cynic Loosed

Disclaimer: The following mini-reviews represent what could widely be considered an affront to the established conventions of game reviewing in several significant ways. First, they are of a length best suited to describing a game in the manner readers are probably interested, instead of the rambling, self-involved mind-numbing missives which I do so enjoy.

Donation Drive Update and Draw Details

This Sunday at midnight we will be taking down the links to the Paypal account and will no longer be accepting anymore donations until the next go around, which won't be for a good long while I think. Rather than do the draw right at midnight we will be pulling the names out of a hat live on Teamspeak Monday, November 1st at 8PM CST.

Oct 25th - 31st

The third iteration of the GTA series is hitting shelves and I just canÂ't bring myself to care. I picked up the second game on pre-order, had maybe six or seven hours of fun and then lost interest.

"A Pink Carnation & A Copy Of Pravda"

Though essentially solitary by nature, we gamers occasionally like company. What's more, we prefer it if that company is easy to come by.

The Professional

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.
