  • Jak and Daxter Collection Review

    Naughty Dog's Jak and Daxter trilogy pushed the platforming genre to its limits in the early 2000s. The first title was a fine collect-a-thon fashioned after Naughty Dog's first PlayStation icon, Crash Bandicoot, and Rare's Banjo Kazooie ... More
  • Gotham City Impostors Review

    With the exception of such titles as The Hunt , Section 8: Prejudice , and Team Fortress , there aren't too many downloadable first-person shooters on the market. Enter the inevitable Batman cash-in Gotham City Impostors . It's a fine, albeit... More
  • Di5a5terp13ce's blog of rock and metal.

    Ahhhhhhh..the only thing I love more than a great game is a great rock song. Nothing makes me feel better than the sound of flying guitar solos, pounding drums and screeching vocals. It's also something like this that helps me focus when the going... More
  • If you could film one movie in the woods...

    One of my "2012 gaming resolutions" was to film a short video game based movie, and on a list that includs gems like "play more games with friends," this one is somehow not turning out to be the impossible longshot I thought it might... More
  • Journalistic Integrity

    I recently ran across this article on The Escapist that discussed the recent announcement of Jessica Chobot being cast as a character in the upcoming game Mass Effect 3. This wouldn't normally be a big deal except for the fact that Miss Chobot is... More
  • The First (probably)EVER GIO Movie Night!(vote for the movie)

    This idea took time to think about, and refine, so I'd like it if everyone in the community at least read this blog to determine if they'd like to participate or not. So I'm thinking this could be a fun thing to try out, so let's. This... More
  • Blame game designers, not gamers, for bad game design.

    About an hour ago I earned my eightieth and final achievement in Borderlands. For the most part, it was worthwhile (Mad Moxxi? ehhhhhhh...). But when it got down to the last three, I began to question my resolve. Was it really worth it to earn another... More

    67 2
    Many moons ago (August 26, 2011 at 08:43 PM to be exact) I posted a blog titled "Game Informer Online Achievements - An Introduction" that broadcasted a rather lofty idea I had been kicking around. I solicited some assistance from my good friend... More
  • A Chronicle of Superhuman Frailty

    Chronicle is the newest entry in the burgeoning niche of "found footage" movies but instead of merely exploiting that gimmick for cheap thrills and ticket sales, it emerges as a solid piece of entertainment that not only met but exceeded my... More
  • Are the Taliban Leaders Real-Life Templars as seen from Assassin's Creed?

    The Taliban are a point of controversy around the world for many people. Commonly known as the 'former' ruling body of Afghanistan, and the kind of people that the U.S. and many others didn't feel comfortable with having that power, and thus... More
  • Why Mr. Freeze is my Favorite Batman Villain (Even in the Video Game)

    Most villains you come across these days seem to be nefarious meglomaniacs who just want to take over the world. While they are certainly interesting, they just don't seem that realistic (usually). That's why Mr. Freeze is such a fascinating character... More
  • The scariest enemy in Zelda.

    The other day me and my friends were talking about games, and somehow we started comparing Zelda and Skyrim. I just come out and say, "The only difference between Zelda and Skyrim is that in Zelda you can't kill the chickens. That night when... More
