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.

Infinity Ward's Creative Strategist (and once community manager) FourZeroTwo (FZT) asked the community to pose questions via the popular blogging site, Twitter.

The Need for Speed franchise has been around for a long time now, and EA decided a couple of titles back that it was Need for Change time. The company switched to "official" racing instead of the cooler, more dangerous street racing. In their attempt to redeem themselves and prove that NFS is just as cool in circles as it is underground, EA has released the NFS Shift demo slightly earlier than expected for PC.
