  • The Top 12 Achievements Ever

    After discussing achievements and what I love about them in my blog yesterday, I've decided to compile a list of what I believe represents the best and most prestigious of them. I put a lot of thought into this as I searched through all of my past... More
  • Diary of a Mad Gamer...

    We've seen Diary of a Mad Man and Diary of a Mad Black Woman...and now we have...Diary of a Mad Gamer. I'm not one to keep a diary in real life, but I thought it might make a good blog topic for today's blog. Dear Diary... (Don't worry... More
  • Motion Controls, and why I may just buy into them.

    So it's been four months since I last wrote anything of note on this site. Four long months where I haven't been active at all really in the 'video game community.' Granted I've got a good excuse (Life has been awfully kind as of late... More
  • Reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

    Well. I've read a lot of weird stuff in my time, but this one really takes the cake. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas isn't just a bizarre novel, it's quite possibly the strangest book I've ever read. For those of you who don't know... More

  • Virgin Gaming: When Advertising Pays Off…

    Perhaps you’ve notice the big red banners streaming across the pages of Game Informer Online lately that are advertising Virgin Gaming. The red definitely pops and gets your attention, huh? I think so anyway. There was one day there where the blog... More
  • This Is A Public Service Announcement

    Play Mother 3. This is one of three games that have ever left me speechless. Those other two games are Shadow of the Colossus and Bioshock. Or, if you already have played it, were you shocked, flabbergasted, humored, then reduced to tears like I was?... More
