A Band of Gamers is the result of numerous conversations between Joel and Bill regarding a shared concern over what we considered to be a growing problem within the videogame industry . . . namely the problem with reviews. It wasn't so much that the reviews published by the multitude of "big names" in the business weren't well written, but that we valued them considerably less than the reviews and recommendations from our more trusted gaming community. From these discussion we arrived at A Band of Gamers, a portal made available to that same trusted and valued gaming community to create and post game reviews of their own.
