Yes...You read the title correctly!! We are proud to welcome one and all to the 114th FileFront Network Insider!

You, the community of staff and members, have voiced your opinion (over and over again :p ) on seeing the Weekly Network Insider make it's return, and so...here it is! Now...on with the reading! With the return of the Insider, comes a listing of all the major gaming happenings for you below, and remember, if you see something that you would like to be added to the Weekly Network Insider, or have a suggestion, simply E-Mail us at insider@filefront.com, or at hfx_rebel@filefront.com!

Before we move onto all of the gaming happenings, lets recap what's been going on around the FileFront Network:

Network Comings & Goings... We bid a fond farewell to an icon! Jos 'Pro-Filer' Jongejan has hung up his joystick so that he could prepare himself for more important duties as he gets ready to enter daddy-hood, and although he will be missed greatly by those that have known him, as well as those that have met him in passing, we wish him and his wife all the best with their new family! Good luck Jos, you will enjoy all of the 'firsts' that being a daddy has to offer!! "So Thank You All; Live Hard, Love Life, Respect Family, and Game On. /salute - Pro-Filer Out"

With Pro-Filer's exit, we must have a replacement Network Manager, and to fill the void, we give a hearty welcome to Long-time FileFront Forum / GamingForums Manager Jeff "n0e" Mills! Most of you will know him, and his warped sense of ha-ha from the FileFront Forums, where he incites the Forum staff to PM en-masse all of their hugs to poor Dreadnought[DK]. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge, experience and pull to the Network to get things done...Welcome aboard n0ebert!

Other changes in the Network Administration include the leaving of Melissa 'InryiForge', who will be missed by all, staff and members alike...but with her exit, we have a new Administrator to fill her pumps, Paul "Mr.Funsocks is the newest addition to the team! He is always available to answer your questions!

Whats new on the Network? Earlier this year, we saw the launch of two new sites: FileFront Clan and CrysisFiles! And Network scuttlebutt has it that there will be an addition of four new sites in the very near future:

  • Red Alert 3
  • Lord of the Rings : Conquest
  • Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
  • Crysis Warhead

There will be more sites added at a later date, so stay tuned for more information as it comes available! Now, back to the Insider...

Jedi Knight III: Abandoned Academy Here's the embarrassing thing about JKfiles: We tend to get the "good" st00f a lot later than most because of our slower processing time.
