With the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution — The Missing Link just around the corner, we’re excited to be kicking off the review program with a handful of PC evaluations.

If you’re not familiar with DX:HR — The Missing Link, how about a quick primer?  This is the first downloadable content pack created by Eidos-Montreal for their award-winning hit game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a game which successfully continued the awesome legacy of the Deus Ex franchise with amazing review scores and hours of sneaking, punching, shooting, augmented fun.  The DLC fills in a critical missing portion of the main game, allowing fans to explore further into the conspiracy and find out what happened to Adam at his darkest hour.

Kim Swift and the Airtight Team Prepare for Their Panel at PAX Prime 2011

SEATTLE — We’re excited to announce, for those who do not already know, that Maverick PR is working on the next great game from designer Kim Swift, co-creator of Portal, entitled Quantum Conundrum.

That’s right!  And honestly, we can’t be any more excited that Square Enix turned to us when they needed a monster PR announcement for this important upcoming downloadable title.

Not only is the game flat-out amazing (DLC is really coming a long, long way), but you see, Kim was also an integral team leader for a pair of our own in-house favorite titles — Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. Oh the many hours we’ve logged blasting Zombies and yelling at one another for release from a pesky Smoker… but that’s another story all together, people. Read more

SEATTLE — We’ve had an amazing time working on one of the best games of 2011, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, for the past year or so.  It was a long (and worthwhile) road for everyone from the development team to the marketing crew and including the diehard series fans who have waited several long years for a sequel to call their own.

Editor’s Note:  If you missed Part 1, our profile of GamerFitNation, head over there now and have a quick read.  Meanwhile, our new feature series continues below with Part 2: The Interview!

As we said yesterday, GamerFitNation is one of our favorite new sites, an outlet that combines our obsessive love of exercise with our obsessive love and work with video games.  But what makes a site like GamerFitNation tick, and what is it like launching a very focused web site like this in an industry looking mostly for bigger numbers and expanded “reach?”

To find out, we went to the source and grilled site founder Antwand Pearman about GFN. Read more

EdNote:  This is the first in a series of profiles that will explore the depth and variety of the video game-focused media. We hope to shine a light on some of the smaller sites who don’t pull numbers like GameSpot but bring the passion, knowledge and fan fervor of the biggest sites in the world.  So read on and stay tuned for future profiles… maybe you’ll find a new outlet to visit and they’ll gain you as a fan!

Maverick PR loves GamerFitNation, and not just because they took the time to profile one of the greatest video game PR people of all time… cough-cough… but because they are a site with a positive, focused message and purpose beyond just satisfying the instant news and screenshot demands of fanboys and girls across the world.

Matt mugs his best “STANDARD INTERNET DORK POSE” A Camera Angle Which Other MavPR Partners Find Decidedly LESS Funny Than Matt Does. Shame, Really. :-p

 

“I don’t mind dying, but I’ll be damned if I die early and miss out on time with my son simply because I couldn’t stop eating crappy food or because I was too lazy to get my ass off the couch.”
– MavPR Partner Matt Frary in GamerFitNation’s True Gamer of the Week Profile

One of your favorite young video game sites, GamerFitNation, has selected Maverick PR Partner Matt Frary as their “True Gamer of the Week” this week. This is a totally fitting title and the perfect site to profile Matt, because his nearly obsessive man-love of P90X has kept him neatly trim for more than 7 months now.  We’d post a picture of his rock-hard abs here, but it would be far too overpowering for teh Internets to handle.

TRT BoxTomb Raider Trilogy released a couple of weeks ago and we here at Maverick PR were a bit excited to jump into the fray and do a little bit of work with one of the most iconic video game characters of all time. 

Tomb Raider Trilogy combines three awesome Tomb Raider games into one amazing package for PlayStation 3. And if that’s not enough for you, all of the games have been re-mastered in HD to make them look even better than before.  Still not enough?  Well, don’t pick up that phone because the package also includes some PS3-exclusive items like avatar rewards and a special theme.

It’s an amazing deal — so if you missed the games on PS2, go get this now.  If you played them on PS2 and love Tomb Raider, go get this package now.  Don’t believe us – and really – why would you?  Just read some of the reviews!
