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.

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. 

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.

We've previewed the upcoming game Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, a game where players develop a fantasy kingdom and hire adventurers to defend it.  Complete customization of the kingdom, a strong Guild and Hero system, and plenty o' Dragons n' Giants to slay make this game promising!  See what we had to say about it here!

guildHeroes lay claim to generous bounty to defend your town, dragons lay claim to heroes, and you lay claim to the responsibility of defending your Fantasy Kingdom.  It's the perfect economy, and one that has been proven time and again by successes such as the original Dungeons & Dragons, Stronghold, and other RTS-styled fantasy simulators.  Majesty 2 monopolizes on this system, where players can build towers, smithies, and marketplaces in which distant heroes, who are recruited by your locally established guilds, may come to spend their wealth... and gain fame!
