I just wanted to say that I think "The Guns of Navarro" is a fantastic new feature. I've been really looking forward to it every time I see it on "Upcoming" for the last few weeks, and I haven't been disappointed. It's the kind of feature I didn't really know I wanted until I read it, but then couldn't get enough of.

I always liked Alex, but I always kinda thought of him as the goofy guy who really liked Nick Cage, but he's a great writer and a really intelligent thinker about the art and business of video games.

That's it, just wanted to say: great job, Giant Bomb.

Agreed.

And no matter what the subject is, it's always enjoyable to read. Alex is the best writer of the crew. His choice of words and phrasing is always excellent.

Indeed it is. But anything with Alex Navarro is.

Yupp, it's good to have some awesome written content on GiantBomb at least once a week! Alex is doing one heck of a job.

Alex Navarro is awesome. I still enjoy rewatching/reading some of his content on Screened to this day... =( He definitely shines when it comes to his written work, though, for sure.

I'm loving his column and the "Worth Reading" feature. GiantBomb has really stepped their game up.

I really love Patrick's longer form written pieces (and Worth Reading) too, but in terms of opinion and analysis, Alex has gotten him beat. Those two are definitely the best writers on staff.

I've been really enjoying them. Alex is a great guy and it's nice to see some of his views represented on the site more regularly.

Alex has always been an extremely articulate motherfucker, all of his Screened reviews and even his Screencast soliloquies/rants were something to look forward to.

I've never been a tremendous fan of Alex, but he's winning me over with this feature. He comes off a lot more reasonable and less cynical than his past work at Giant Bomb has led me to believe he is.

Alex is a goddamn wordsmith. I actually get a touch disappointed whenever I load up a new review page and find myself greeted by the name of another staff member. I'm glad he now has a regular platform through which we can enjoy his writing.

I like the new crop of features that have come up since the new year in general. Unprofessional Fridays is fun, kind of a throwback to the Happy Hour. Anyway, The Guns of Navarro is nice because, honestly, it reminds me that Alex is part of the site. Plus, good writing, yadda yadda.

I agree as well. I think it's exactly the kind of thing I think of Rorie doing if he were ever to get a job here.

@gkhan: Anyone who doesn't like Nick Cage should go watch Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans; like immediately.

I like it, too; though, I keep thinking they're articles about guns or gun violence in games.

I've been saying Alex is a great writer since the Gamespot days and I will continue to do so. Duder knows how put words together, humorously or otherwise.
