  • Things I Want: Entry #1

    7 3
    The premise is simple. When brainstorming blog ideas for GI Online, I started thinking about all the cool stuff I have on my desk. Then my mind wandered to all the cool stuff I would like to have on my desk. Then I made the leap to assuming that if I... More
  • CosBlog Submission FAQs

    6 1
    Want your costume featured on GameInformer.com’s CosBlog? There are no real restrictions on who can be featured as long as the costume is appropriate for the website. Sorry ladies, no body painting. If you have a video-game related costume you would... More
  • An Introduction To Cosplay

    10 2
    Everyone around the office has their own unique nerd-crutch. Mine is cosplay. While other folks at GI spend their free time table-top gaming, hunting down comics or polishing their to-scale Darth Vader helmet, I’m preparing for the next big convention... More
  • Greetings From One Of The New Guys

    If you’re a longtime reader of the magazine, you’re probably wondering who the hell I am. So, here goes: I’m Jeff Marchiafava, one of the five new associate editors here at Game Informer. I hope that you’re enjoying the new site... More
  • Mario Bros. Tribute By Arabian Rap Sensation

    I came across this fantastic Flash video back in college and I still can't get enough of it. It's a solid, and at moments hilarious, tribute video to the Mario Bros. complete with music by Group X a.k.a. The Arabian Rap Sensation. Check it out... More
  • Impulse: Lucidity

    I was instantly fascinated by the visual direction of this new LucasArts project, which arrives this coming week on Xbox Live Arcade. Like pages out of a children’s book, the art direction alone was enough to convince me to give the game a try.... More

  • Burgers.

    This is one of my favorite pictures, despite a couple of us looking like we fell asleep in tanning booths. If only the burgers were as tasty as they were large. Those mugs were filled with...cider. More
  • The Curse of Morality

    15 2
    It may have started in RPGs, but one of the big features publishers and developers like to tout in games of any genre is a morality system. There was a time (back in the days of the first KOTOR) where the option to resolve situations in blatantly good... More
  • Aion so far

    Hot pants ftw! I wish I had more time for Aion at the moment. Turns out moving and launching a website takes some time out of your day. I got through the glorified tutorial (in that I hit level 10 and chose my big-boy class by "ascending"),... More
  • Amazing Photographer Loads Up On Saturn Crap

    13 3
    Japan and video games? What will they think of next?! While we were overseas for Tokyo Game Show last week, I had a little time to do some shopping. If you're a big nerd, that means one of a few things: manga, anime or video games. Since manga and... More
  • LFTE: The Origin Of A Cover Story (Oct 09)

    Every month I'll post up my Letter From The Editor when the magazine hits the street for you all to mock or praise. So without further adieu, here is the letter from the Crackdown 2 issue. Enjoy. Celebrity and fashion magazines make a splash with... More
