  • Game Consoles Need A Luxury Brand

    I'll be the first to admit that when Sony first announced the price of the PS3, I was less than pleased. I was already bummed out about the idea of plunking down $499 for the Xbox 360, but paying an extra $100 really soured my mood. Granted, I've... More
  • The 4th Floor: Episode 3

    Welcome GIO community, this week we discuss movies, as if that's a change. However we decide to focus on a certain Mortal Kombat production, including a sequel to the God of War movie. Did you know there's a new Mission Impossible movie coming... More
  • 5 Reasons I'm Excited For My New Wii U

    I'm gonna be honest right from the get go: I'm writing this blog as a time-killer, because the Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle I pre-ordered got its shipping delayed, and I'm so excited and anxious for it to arrive that I don't know what to... More
  • Keeping On Writing (We'll See Who Keeps On Reading)

    You are most likely unaware but in January 2013 I committed myself to a weekly blog with a goal of roughly 52 blogs within 52 weeks. The emphasis wasn't on adhering to an immutable time limit but on consistently writing (which is my number one piece... More
  • Don't Starve: Console Edition [Review]

    An exercise in futility is not always futile. "Don't Starve" teaches us this lesson before our first in-game night cycle is even over - because you will either be dead, or cowering in fear around your campfire, hoping you have enough fuel... More
  • Rayman Legends Challenges App Impressions

    Back in February, a promising Wii U exclusive title was unceremoniously delayed until at the latest September. Lots of fans (including yours truly) were reasonably angered by this, and the backlash was so huge that lead designer Michel Ancel joined in... More
  • The inherent risk of being a first adopter.

    7 1
    It's done. After having looked at the games, the features, and factoring in which ecosystem I prefer, I pre-ordered an Xbox One from Amazon. While I know that a VERY large portion of the GI community will balk, roll their eyes, or flat out just laugh... More
  • To Everyone: A Thanks

    Level 5: To Celebrate the Occasion, A Thanks Well, I’ve done it. I’ve finally reached level 5 on the site. I’ve been blogging here at the site for about 2 months now, and I’ve been blown away at just how welcoming the community has been. I’ve been reading... More
  • 31/31 Day 31: The Fruits of my Labor

    5 1
    Well, I did it. I actually managed to pull this off. I didn't miss a single day. This challenge has helped me as a writer, I've gotten better at just writing things down. So I figure that the best way to show this is to have this final entry dedicated... More
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force (Chapter 4: Missing In Action)…

    I had a busy Saturday out and about while trying to escape the heat. But when the sun finally set and everything started to cool down, it was time to continue my trek through Half Life: Opposing Force. Last week was a short mission but one that set the... More
  • Gamers

    This is going to be short. I was just thinking to myself about this while reading some articles, and figured it'd make a half decent blog post, since I'm doing this now. Anyway, I'll get to the point. This may not be relegated to gamers. However... More
  • 11/31 - Bang Bang, Pew Pew: The Question of the Shooter Epidemic

    Gonna be a short one today, I had a crazy day. One of the most common complaints about the video game industry these days is the proliferation of shooter games. Ever since the original Modern Warfare popularized the military shooter, a flood of shooter... More
