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.
So I am still working on integrating some new features, such as the GamerCards, but the good news is that I have figured out how to add new tabs and plugins properly. You will notice there is now a GamerCard tab on your profile... I just haven't really done much with it yet. It'll have Steam Card and XBL / PSN cards in the next few days.
Electronic Arts has decided to re-release the original three Command & Conquer series games for FREE download, originally made by Westwood Studios. The game pack includes Command & Conquer: Red Alert, Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn (the first game), and Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun + Firestorm. The three are easily some of the best RTS games out there, especially for classics. Long live Westwood Studios!
You can find all of the games here.
Thanks to Tiberius for finding this story.

Paradox Interactive has teamed up with Arrowhead Game Studios to publish this "unique" action-adventure fantasy game. Arrowhead takes a hilarious twist with the typical fantasy setting, admitting outright that it is "generic," but in a funny way. Get your bath robes ready.
In Magicka, players will control four wizards in a not-so-serious epic quest to save a not-so-unique town. In fact, Magicka sets itself apart by being uniquely generic. Consider your mind blown.
Johan Pilestedt, CEO of Arrowhead Game Studios, said:
Blizzard Entertainment released new screenshots of the upcoming AAA title, Diablo 3. Diablo is a hack-n-slash dungeon-crawler that inspired many modern remakes, such as Torchlight. Diablo 3's edgy art-style has received heavy criticism from hardcore fans, many claiming that Blizzard has gravitated toward a "WoW-style" for all of their upcoming games (D3 and StarCraft 2 included). What are your thoughts on the new art direction? Has Diablo 3 strayed from its roots? Read More for screens.
