Daily Elysium: Weekly Recap

Surprisingly weÂ've made it through our first full week here at Gamers With Jobs. Granted, we aren't setting any longevity records, but IÂ'm fairly certain we've thwarted several dozen opinions that we would scuttle away trembling and weeping after only a day or two.

Horizons Trailer and Beta

A new trailer for the upcoming MMORPG Horizons is up showcasing the world and a bit of combat as well. The movie file is 12 megs and you can grab it here.

Do you like NHL 2K3? I mean, really like it? If you don't, Bill Harris over at Gone Gold will pummel you with appreciation until you worship the game as much as he does. His essay goes into great detail about why NHL 2K3 is great and he also offers some optimal slider settings based on over 100 hours of game experience.

Harsh Robot Lessons

Let's give a big round of applause for Elysium and his fine work of keeping the site rolling along while I was out of town on business.

Mega Man Screenshots

It's not often I'll just toss up a link to screenshots, but I'm making an exception here for a variety of reasons.  1) Mega Man usually trumps all pre-existing posting conventions, simply because to disrespect Mega Man is to disrespect gaming, and 2) the front page needs some Gamecube love.  To that end, Computer and Video Games has posted some of the first screenshots for the new G
