March 15th - 21st

Picking the game of the week was really easy once I decided to cop out and pick two games instead. Why force a man to choose between UT2K4 and BF: Vietnam when he really doesn't have to? Both games offer a ton of multiplayer action for $39.99 (less if you look around) and both ship today! Some stores have already seen copies of Vietnam so check your local geek shops.

Where's the Repair Gun?

Well, next week is the week, isn't it? We've pretty much milked as much enjoyment as we can out of the demo by now. Just as we start passing up the UT2K4 icon on our desktops for something else, the full-on game is about to drop. Just remember, gentlemen, not everyone who buys the full version will have ever played the demo.

Here Endeth The Whining

If you will excuse a momentÂ's vulgarity, IÂ've been talking out of my ass a lot lately.

Hell just became considerably less toasty

According to this post on the Bizarre Creations forums, downloadable content is finally on the way for their highly acclaimed Xbox Live racer, Project Gotham Racing 2. This is excellent news for those looking to get even more gaming enjoyment out of the already rich experience provided. Hi everyone, As you may have guessed, yes we are working on downloadable content at the moment.

Leashes and Sequels

When I first got a dog I thought it was going chew up my clothes, piss on everything and generally act like a 2 year old mute kid with social problems. I can't say I was disappointed on that front. Still, for all my pessimism I was completely unprepared for the strange mind powers dogs possess. Dogs can get you to do the stupidest things without saying a word.

Sex, Lies, & Video Game Rentals

If I had to guess, I would theorize that few hobbies are quite as expensive as ours. For a true gamer, each month sees temptation in the form of exciting new titles or hardware, must-haves that attract our attention -- and our cash -- as surely as an infant will hurl colorful, staining offal on us precisely when we can least deal with it.

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.
