I feel as though Alex's role on GB has been reduced significantly over the past few months. He used to appear in quicklooks regularly and would write more articles. Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me?

He's in New York, voting against Hurricane Sandy. That's why he's not in Quick Looks.

#3 Posted by SomeDeliCook (2341 posts) -

He's clear across the entire country, he can't do quicklooks when he's nowhere near everyone else.

He's done a number of recent reviews

He's their Foreign Correspondent, reporting on location in the far away East Coast.

He was never in a ton of QL, when he was he was working for screened not GB. The role he has had since he joined GB has stayed the same.

I wonder why he went all the way back to New York?

Family or something? That is what I always assumed

I wish they would do a little more with Alex. Maybe a skype video with him and another staff member every couple weeks to talk about what he's been playing or something? He feels pretty underutilized to me.

I want solo quicklooks. He always reviews the shittiest games, so I'd love to see him suffering through some of the crap first hand

Not really. I'd say he's done the majority of the reviews on the site this year. Or at least more than any of the other guys individually. He doesn't have to record quick looks so he can do more reviews.

I really get sick of his snark, but his reviews are solidly written. But seriously, I get so goddamn tired of his little captions on the news items he posts...

I enjoy reading his stuff but I wish he would at least do "Jars, they're a thing" or something every once in a while.

That would be amazing!!! Give Alex his own feature!

I think he's been doing more freelance writing in other fields so that might contribute to his decreased presence of late.

We need more of Alex saying things are a thing. So my idea is a thing now.

He is far .... in a state far away from the duders T_T Thanks for ruining my night I miss Rorie´s overindulgence puppy love and Alex´s snarkism

#23 Posted by CashBailey (805 posts) -

The relative collapse of SCREENED still bums me out.

The site is still active but every ounce of personality and fun went out of it when Alex and Rorie left.

It's not that bad now, though it's obviously not the same site and the higher ups don't want the current people to make something out of the situation.

It was crap at the beginning, but it got better. It's kinda a dick move for both Rorie and Stacey. They put them in a really terrible position to run a website.

That could be cool. I would be nice to get a more personal take on his view of the industry since this site's goal is you knowing the staff well. I've been reading Alex reviews since back at gamespot but it would be nice to hear more from him these days.

#26 Posted by TobbRobb (4840 posts) -

Yeah I enjoy myself some Alex! We need more from him! I do think he's a better writer than video personality though, maybe get him to do something similar to Patrick's Worth Reading?

#27 Edited by NapTimeSleeper (323 posts) -

He's in the East. He also just did two reviews recently for the site on WWE 13 and Hotline Miami.

Where's Alex? He... He's dead.
