Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.

After browsing StarCraft II's website for case modding ideas, I noticed a disturbance in the alignment of races.  It seems that the Zealot, the epitome of the Protoss race, no longer offers "[his] Life for Aiur!"  It gets worse...

The Xbox 720?

Project Phoenix, Microsoft's anti-PS3 weapon?  

Microsoft became king of cliche when they discovered the letter X, dubbing their square BOX the X-Box, and they're at it again with Project Phoenix.

SEGA has jumped aboard Microsoft's golden money-for-DLC bandwagon, and they extend their hand to you for cash.  Empire: Total War, a game that has a solid count of fundamental flaws that have the ability to 'borify' a game, has finally come out with Downloadable Content. 


So recently my license plate came up for renewal, and I decided to get something a bit more flashy than ABC-1234.  I went with something that only gamers will appreciate, something that quite frankly, deserves a better car than my '98 Saturn, but here you go:


Almost as good as the one a friend saw that said "PWNED."

You know it for being one of the most controversial titles in gaming, you know it for the hot coffee scandal, you even know it for just being a wicked game - and now it's on the PSP.  Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was announced today by Rockstar: Leeds, and is said to be available for the PSP sometime this fall. 

Rockstar Games noted that the game will have new story missions and graphics, but has held back any screenshot evidence of this.  Rockstar, we dare you to release some screenshots!  The developer says Chinatown Wars will be available both on disc and for direct download. Chinatown Wars was the highest-ever rated game on the DS so far, and now it is being ported to a platform that is likely more suited to the fast-paced action the GTA series has come known for.
