Letter From The Director: Nerd Army Additions

Attention G4tv.com readers,

If you’ve been keeping a keen eye on G4tv.com and TheFeed, you’ve noticed that there’ve been a lot of changes in the last couple of months with the influx of new faces, our pinpointed direction, our story frequency, and our voice. When I was brought on as Director of Gaming Editorial for G4 Interactive, change was one of my main goals. It’s been an interesting process for the last few months, and while we’ve had some entertaining growing pains, it’s been a hell of a lot of fun to say the least.

At least, for me it has, since Raymond, Brian, Steve, Jeff and the rest of the folks have been bitching and whining the entire time. “Oh Mister Billy, Waaaaah, we have too much work to do. You expect too much. I only slept two hours last night.” Seriously?! I think I even saw Sessler crying AND HE DOESN’T EVEN WORK FOR ME. Do you believe this crap? Call the freakin’ Waaaaaaambulance.

Without getting HR into a tizzy, and potentially threatening my Thursday Bagel day freedoms, it was time to add some heavy hitters to the team.

I guess what I’m trying to say is we’re building a freaking awesome Nerd Army here at G4tv.com, and if you’d been following my Twitter (@louiethecat), you would have seen that we had a number of open positions at G4tv.com. As of last week, they have all been filled.

Today, I’m very proud to announce who will be joining our crew, most of which you should be familiar with if you’ve been following video game press for some time.

Sterling McGarvey – Senior Reviews/Previews Editor (Formerly GameSpy.com)
Andrew “Skip” Pfister – Senior Games Editor (Formerly 1UP, Electronic Games Monthly, and more)
Patrick Klepek – News Editor (Formerly MTV Multiplayer Blog, 1UP, and GamingAge)
Jake Gaskill – Feed Writer (Former X-Play reviewer, WebbAlert.com, Mean)

I’ve been following all four of these writers for years, and am beyond excited to be in a position to make them a part of our growing team. I believe each of these guys are the best at what they do, and adding them to our staff roster will only make our online presence that much stronger.  I mean, we can only beat up Leahy so much. Now there are more people to beat up Leahy! Yay!

You’ll be seeing their work starting this week, and will quickly understand why these were the people I chose to help continue the charge towards making G4tv.com the best place to get everything video games. And this is only the beginning. We have a lot of big things coming, but sadly this is the only tasty treat I can share for now. Enjoy!

Please welcome them with your (insert fanboy rage) and (don’t say it or you’ll get banned) and show them the (yep, also a no no) that G4tv.com readers give us every (yeah, you’re super banned) day.
