All About mclazyj
So, I have not posted anything here in about five years, and I figured I should let people know what I am up to, and maybe where things have gone.
If people are aware, I left here some time ago, because of the whole Jeff Gerstmann fiasco, as did many others. We still keep in contact on our own forum board, www.thevirtualunderground.net. Its a great place for old VU alumnai to hang out and shoot the breeze with one another.
As for myself, I was writing for a game blog some time ago, www.aeropause.com, but since about August 2011, I have transitioned to a new location, www.ggsgamer.com. I am doing reviews, editorial, news content and more, but the big thing is that I am setting up a US presence for the site, as it was primarily a UK site until last year. As with prior years, I am making sure that we get a lot of content, review items and what not, and I would love for all of my friends to come and check it out.
Also, I have been podcasting a storm, just starting up a new podcast about three months ago called, You Like the Worst Stuff. While it does have a focus on gaming, we also dive into movies, televisions, books and other items that are geek culture related. You can check it out and let us know what you think over at www.ggsgamer.com/podcasts/yltwsfeed.xml
I might come and visit a bit more often to the Gamespot site, now that it seems there has been a mea culpa of sorts between Gerstmann and the current Gamespot site, especially since Giant Bomb has been purchased by Gamespot parent, CBS Media. Hope you will all come and check out what I am doing and I will try to update a little more regularly. I am upset about losing my Top 100 reviewer badge, but since I am now reviewing semi-professionally (I have freelanced for a few Fox affiliates, YAY!), I cannot write them here. But you can check them out at the abovementioned sites.
If anyone is interested in reading my journal/blog from this point forward, point your browser to:
Don't forget that we also have a nicely growing community of former Gamespot posters at:
Well, folks, I have been here for about four years, but that tenure has come to an end. I know that Gamespot is saying that it has nothing to do with the review and yadda, yadda, yadda, but I just don't feel the same about this site now. My membership has been cancelled, and I am going to fade away from this site. I may come back some day, but Gamespot has a long way to go to gain back my trust. I am sure that Gamespot will survive and will live on without me. Corporate machines tend to do that.
A few things before I go. I will leaveup my reviews and journal entries. They are part of my existence on this site, so I will leave them there.
If you want to see future reviews from me or writings, you can see me on Aeropause.com, which can be found at www.aeropause.com. We have forums and lots of good writers. We also have a great podcast and are looking to grow. Yeah, I am pimping the site I write for, but I feel we are good enough to do that.
If you just want a plain jane forum to post on that has a lot of the regulars, go to www.thevirtualunderground.net. It is a great site and we are slowly turning it into something. I hope more GS regulars can come and join us.
Also want to send a shout out to all the guys and gals from the VU here on Gamespot. We are legion and we will continue at thevirtualunderground.net. I also want to say hey to EvilTab and DevliHuntress. You two have become good friends of mine on this site and I look forward to continuing the conversation in the future.
If you want to get ahold of me outside of here, my email is tballfst (at) gmail (dot) com. If you have some gaming news you want to get posted, you can send me stuff at joseph (at) aeropause (dot) com. My MSN messenger id is the same as my tballfst email address. My user name on Steam and Xfire and Xbox Live is mclazyj.
See you in the ether.

I wanted to give my thoughts on the Games for Windows initiative and the Games for Windows Live launch.
mclazyj does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send mclazyj a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
