  • Can't wait for DoTA 2? Try League of Legends

    DoTA should be familiar to most gamers as a Warcraft III mod that was wildly popular. It had many unique characters to choose from, and two teams went head-to-head to destroy the enemy base. Well, if you are reading this, you should probably know what... More
  • The Re-Review Episode 3: Delta Force: Urban Warfare (PSx)

    Being ahead of your time is rarely a bad thing, especially in gaming. When a game's graphics and gameplay are so unprecedented that they don't show up in other games for years, the game is usually great, and becomes an instant classic. This is... More

  • The Problem with Halo Anniversary

    12 1
    343 is the new Treyarch. The game may have been a "labor of love" for them, but they are running the original code...except with an enhanced graphics engine. Which you do not even need to use. Unfortunately, this is another classic case of the... More
  • Suggestion & "Let's Play Together" Idea

    First of all, I am really angry right now because of some stupid mix-up of hotkeys and GIO blog writer program. I was here, writing my blog post for like 3 hours straight and when I had finally finished it, I wanted to select it all to copy it in case... More
  • Can A Video Game Change The World?

    I just finished reading an article in Spin Magazine about the effect of Nirvana's masterpiece album Nevermind from 1991. The article laments the fact that American society and youth embraced this dark album and the rebellious attitude it espoused... More
