  • The Forgotten - Games I Didn't Finish In 2014

    It’s the end of the year, and the time where most people start to put together their Game of the Year lists. I’m not quite there yet. I’d say that across all the consoles and my PC I’ve played well over a hundred games this year... More
  • Portstation 4 and sloppy cross-gen titles, or how I learned to love last gen.

    Greetings and salutations my fellow GIO users. I hope life finds you well on this Christmas Eve (in this foul year of our Lord 2014). I've been on the fence, trying my damndest to defend Sony against all nay-sayers. Not because I think my console... More
  • How The Defeat of Gawker Is A Victory For Humanity

    4 1

    A gawker is that slack-jawed kid in dire need of a belt and a good shower who never gets your fast food order right because they go and stick their hand in the deep fryer and their foot in their mouth whenever a girl in too-tight jeans comes strolling in.

  • Actually, It's About Love


    It is a season for kindness and goodwill towards men. Yet amongst the maddening crowds and the dazzling lights, wandering the maze-like malls adrift on a sea of humanity one can feel a sense of loneliness and longing. The reason for the season forgotten in avalanche of advertising and unchecked commercialism.

    Yet don't forget the reason for the season, and who we are as gamers.

  • The Difference Between Story and Lore

    Way back in March, when I was considering purchasing Dark Souls II, a friend tried really hard to convince me to get the game. "It's one of the most satisfying game experiences ever," he would say. "The combat is so solid. The feeling... More
  • Closing Out The Year With Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare…

    Out of the couple dozen games I played this year I managed to finish about a dozen of them, with the most recent one being Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In all likelihood, this will be the final game I beat in 2014 (unless I can finally get through... More
