Here at Marooners’ Rock, we’ve been bringing some great content all year long. We’ve covered some awesome events like PAX East and got to spread the word of some underdog hits.

If you follow me on Twitter or Google+, what I am about to announce won’t be news to you, but hopefully you’ll still be just as excited: today is my last day at Marooners’ Rock.
Raptr has already made great strides in bringing gamers together on this little thing we like to call “The Internets” with their game tracking social network.

As I recently mentioned, I was a huge fan of the original Driver PC game, going so far as to physically ruin my first copy of it from overuse (and possibly a bit of neglect), so meeting the man behind the game was an absolute treat. I ran into him again (a few times, actually) at E3, near the Drive...[Read More]
