March 8th - 14th

Before we get into the Game of the Week I want to take a moment and welcome Coldforged to the GWJ family. We may be dysfunctional and crazy uncle Pyro might want you to sit on his lap a little too long but somehow we make it all work. This week's Game du Jour is none other than the much delayed Rainbow Six 3: Athena Sword expansion.
Once in a while we like to cover fan projects as you may or may not know. Today we're going to take a look at Half-Life 2D - Codename Gordon. The Flash-made 2D shooter is based on the Half-Life 2 footage that was shown so far. One of the team members, Paul Kamma, answered some questions on their game.

That and a Dollar Will Refill My Coffee

The blame rests squarely on the shoulders of Flux. There are reasons we move on to new games. Sometimes it's because none of the games we're playing are holding our attention anymore. Once in a while it's so that we can finally eject a painfully addicting game from our drives and move on. Flux figured he'd ask for a little help on Civilization 3.

The Best Of Times, The Worst Of Times

Depeneding on who you ask, the coming year is either a renaissance or a swan song for PC gaming, highlighting one of the great paradoxes of late within the industry, the simultaneous success and failure of gamingÂ's granddaddy.


The Employee Profiles roll forward, this time focusing on Ulairi. Former Horizons pimp (developer), IGN staffer and all around nifty fella. Ulairi didn't send in a picture even though he totally promised he would so here's a dancing robot courtesy of Penny Arcade.Read on for Ulairi's profile and... dammit, there he goes again.

Game Calendar is Live!

After many weeks of toiling away in my secret Batcave/Laboratory (i.e. Computer Room) and several more weeks of procrastination I present Game Calendar! Game Calendar is a way to help everybody on the site get together to play games. When you click on the link above that says "Games", you'll be taken to something that looks like a calendar.

Champions of Norrath [PS2]

The Wal-Mart experience youÂ've been waiting for!Not since The Sims have I done so much shopping. Every slaver, ant, goblin, spider and mollusk you kill in Champions of Norrath has a wide array of (usually) crappy items for you to sift through and decide whatÂ's worth picking up.

March 1st - 7th

We have a very solid line-up of releases this week! Yet even with so many great titles coming out the obvious game of the week is Rainbow Brite 4: Payback's a Bitch. No wait, that's from my design document pile, pretend you didn't read that.

Starshatter Demo

It's demo time, and once again we're pointing out one of those that are not likely to receive as much buzz as the trial versions of let's say Painkiller or UT2004. The Starshatter demo (67MB) is pretty much a must download for gamers that are interested in space combat games.

Waiting for the B

Sometimes life imitates art...or is it the other way around? Anyway, sometimes our gaming world intersects with the rest of our world and we have no way to react. We can't exactly draw attention to the event because the chances are pretty good that we're the only one around that would even "get it".
