An Unraveled Mind
on Jul 27, 2011 at 09:27 PM
It seems like only last year that I was writing another one of these blogs here on GIO. One of those personal blogs, however I'm fairly certain this has to get out one way or the other. Things in my head aren't always so easy to figure out, and...

Hey all. I'm back with another part of a system for a genre. Time to get started! Racing System: PS3 Why: I chose the PS3 for racing because they get the best of both worlds. Xbox 360 only has a good serious racer (Forza Motorsport series) while the...

Battlefield vs. Call of Duty
on Jul 27, 2011 at 05:24 PM
Yesterday I posted a blog mainly about paying $15 for map packs, but at the end I went off on a tangent and started talking about Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3. I said I was personaly on the Modern Warfare side. I got some great feedback about the...
How to Fix Strategy Games
on Jul 27, 2011 at 03:40 PM
Recently GI ran an article from some bigwig over at 2K Games who called strategy games “not contemporary.” The irony that 2K published the one of the biggest strategy releases of the past few years, Civilization V , was lost on no one. Maybe...

Video Game Cross-Overs-Good Idea or Doomed to be Crap (except for fighters, that is)?
Oni no Tenshi
on Jul 27, 2011 at 12:26 AM
The first time I had ever heard of a "crossover game" was when I was back in school and the first SNK VS Capcom was released. Of course, from there, the majority of "crossover games" seem to be fighting games (ie: Smash Brothers, Marvel...
