    ? I am getting quite sick of this question. I'm tired of people frowning when they find out that, that's what I like to do in my spare time. Yes, I like to play games. And I know that 99% of people on here do too. But after logging off GameInformerOnline... More

    5
    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

    So here we go again, among an already packed fall line up, the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise will be released on November 9th. Call of Duty: Black Ops will be perhaps the greatest COD to date and to be completely honest, I don't think I'm... More
