  • My favorite movies by genre #1 Action

    Alright, here are my favorite movies by genre. *spoilers Sorry about the lack of paragraphing, I did have it paragraphed and my GIO was messing up, so here's what came out.... Action - Taken This movie starring Liam Neeson as Brian Mills, an ex government... More
  • Idle - A Comic Strip

    7
    From a technical stand point, when AI is idle it's simply waiting for some trigger to change it's state. Waiting for the player to come into view or make a noise. From a philosophical stand point I like to compare AI to the light in a refrigerator... More

    Not much of a video game post today, though I'll tie it in at the end. I was at work yesterday, minding my own business and generally just doing my job (checking in on the Game Informer site as well at times). We've got interviews for a new position... More
  • Days of My Gaming Life Part One: My Early Gaming Days.

    2
    In 1986 I discovered a passtime I would never forget. Gaming. It started in a pizza joint on a stormy weekend night when we were unable to leave because of heavy rain. I was on bordeline insanity by boredom, and my mother wisely gave me some change to... More
  • Valve's E3 Surprise...

    I have every intention of making this a short blog, which may be a relief for some of you. Actually, that is always my intention, but seldom does it work out that way. Anyway, I had one of those moments last night during “game time” where... More
  • The Bondage Of Gaming.

    I would like to share a personal story. Growing up, me and my father only saw each other every two weeks and eventually almost never, and when we saw each other, it wasn't for very long. My dad was unfortanate and lost alot of jobs, though it was... More
  • Worms 2! - And other XBLA Deals of the Week

    After reading Saint's ode to the wonder that is the Worms franchise (or at least the first couple of games), i was intrigued, but wasn't really interested in tracking the game(s) down. There's just so much other stuff to play! But last night... More
  • Picturing Armageddon: Red Faction Trailer Revisited

    If a picture says a thousand words, this post should speak volumes, LOL. Yeah, I'm back with another pictorial, this time of the chaotic, rapid-fire Red Faction: Armageddon trailer that promises a kind of dungeon crawling action transplanted direct... More
  • Put the games back in the right hands.

    Our favorite game series are being herded, corralled, and slaughtered at an ever increasing rate. By whom you ask? Why the Uber Developers of course. More specifically, the Big Three: EA, Activision, and Ubisoft. They seem to be inclined to cause everything... More
  • Maturity isn't on the label.

    7
    Batman Arkham Asylum is one of my favorite games I've ever played. It was able to tell a mature, Batmanish story and maintain a dark, Rapture-like atmosphere, along with being fun. All this was suprising, because it was rated T. This shouldn't... More

  • I’ll Take Video Game Genres for $1000…

    15
    For $1000, the answer is...this style of war game does not occur in real time; rather, it gives each player a pre-determined amount of time to designate troop movements and combat actions before moving on to the next player. If you said, "Turned... More
