  • Splosion Man - Running toward greatness, one explosion at a time

    I've never really been much of a "platformer" gamer. I never played the various Mario games; Donkey Kong was enjoyable at the time, but I hold no real fond memories of it other than as just one of the many coin-op games I played as a kid... More
  • Games That Took Skill

    After watching my long time girlfriend finally become immersed into the gaming lifestyle, I began to watch her and think, "It's really interesting to see someone new to the scene try games that have difficulty to them." So I decided I would... More
  • YouTube Just May Be My New Best Friend!

    My story begins during the Bastogne mission on R.U.S.E. when I just couldn't get the AT guns to their destination. I turned to YouTube hoping for a decent walkthrough on the mission. Boy did I find one. After following the walkthrough, I actually... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 20 of XX...

    Like clockwork and as I mentioned a few days ago, its Friday and here is the latest installment of the Member Herding blog. This week's member was hand picked by a few of the former member's of the horde, a term coined by the very person being... More
  • Censorship vs. Filtering

    The chances that you haven't heard are pretty small. The chances that you haven't heard and are reading this blog are even smaller. But, for that microscopically small minority of you, I'll recap. The illustrious and always wise state of California... More
  • The Star Harvest (A Short Story About Celebrities of the Future)

    "Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." ~John 3:5 [The Star Harvest.] [Written by Enigma.] I have been conditioned to feel angry when people... More
  • The Sweet Sweet Review of Saw 3D (Game Over?)

    You know it's bad for a movie series, when one of the tag lines was "If it's Halloween it must be Saw." Yet despite the utter absurdity of the movies, I can't take my eyes away from these movies. Once again they promise this to be... More
  • [UPDATE] Robot in the Corner Podcast: Episode 8

    UPDATE: We are about a day and a half away from the recording of our next episode. Wes had a really great question during our "Ask the Robot" segment (in episode 7) where he asked us to pick four original video game characters for a game of... More
  • TOGNick has Issues: Issue 1.

    I had hinted a while back, that I was working on a blog series, and here it is. I don't normally do long running series, and I really don't know how far this will go. Sometimes the issue at hand will be game related, and other times like tonight... More
  • Answering the Real Call of Duty...

    As Veteran's Day winds down and night begins to fall, I hope everyone had an enjoyable day. It's weird because I've been in the military nearly 20 years and I still don't really think of myself as a veteran. My grandfather, now there was... More
  • Call of Duty - responsible for a baby non-boom?

    I've seen a lot of Call of Duty articles recently due to the recent launch of Black Ops (I haven't read that many, but I've seen them). There is one that did make me just stop and stare for a minute. Did you know that Call of Duty is keeping... More
  • I have a subscription to GI, yet I don't think the website thinks so.

    I have a subscription to the mag, and even though I put the subscription code in online, it doesn't say that I am a subscriber. Now I wouldn't be so bothered with it, but I think I should get what I pay for, even the online services. I notified... More
