Press Pass

Gamers With Jobs, as part of their long-range plan for total world domination, has added a new feature called "Press Pass." It's game news with cajun seasoning, or something like that. They're finding some interesting items that aren't being covered by other news sites, and they're also adding their own commentary. Here's the link:

Here are two examples (and I hadn't seen these items on any of the news sites I visit daily):
--discussion of a post over at the Penny Arcade forums concerning gaming companies who have a hired staff that does nothing but post in gaming forums. Ugh.
--a story about a post in the Star Wars Galaxies forum by John Smedley (President of Sony Online Entertainment) to ostensibly solicit feedback about the revamped MMORPG. He then proceeded to get beaten about the head and shoulders, to put it mildly.

All in all, another relatively unique content node for GWJ, which seems to have unerring instincts in that regard.
