  • 2016 Gaming Update 8

    Took me a little while, but I managed to finish Red Faction Armageddon. It didn’t have much staying power, but I was binging Person of Interest on Netflix at the same time, while also trying to remember that Deus Ex came out today. Now I’m... More
  • My Gaming Pile of Shame

    I'd liked to think that I have played a wide range of different genres and series throughout my life as a gamer. There have been times when a series that didn't seem all that appealing to me, eventually became a series I absolutely loved, Dark... More
  • Berserk Musou - Everything Revealed So Far

    Two months ago I did a blog post about dark fantasy manga series Berserk and how Omega Force (the makers of Dynasty Warriors and other similar games) was making a game based on it. Two months is a long time and in that period a bunch of new info about... More
  • The Gaming Hivemind

    Most of you don't know me, and that's fine. I mean, really, it's an absolute travesty, but who knows maybe we'll get to know each other soon. I've been gaming for a long time. I've played games now considered classics on their... More
  • Nintendo, Metroid, and 'Brand Sanctity'

    Metroid: Federation Force raises a lot of scary questions. Does Nintendo not care about the Metroid brand? Does Nintendo not care about us – vis à vis our love of the brand? What does this mean for the future of Metroid ? Unfortunately, the... More
  • XCOM GIO Episode 2 - Whovian You Calling Sasquatch?!

    XCOM GIO is the brain-child of playing XCOM using the friends I have made here at GameInformer Online as the soldiers. I wanted to add a story to the missions, so I did. It became a fun blog series that fizzled out as I got busy with life. This is the... More
  • True Evil: What it means to be the bad guy

    In video games we tend to be the brave, incorruptible hero/heroine, someone who saves the day and tends to be the most idealistic version of good. Then there are games with morality (Mass Effect, Infamous) that let you choose 'good' and 'evil'... More

    I co-host the Media Majors podcast , where my friend Liam and I try to one-up each other with weird and wild stories from our preferred mediums – film and gaming, respectively. This is a companion piece to the upcoming fifth episode, wherein chaboi... More
  • A Fool's Journey: Dark Souls - Part 7

    1 1
    Hello and welcome again to my continuing journey through Dark Souls. Last time , I had made it through a particularly grueling pair of areas in Sen's Fortress and Anor Londo. After meeting the Princess at the top of the cathedral I was bestowed the... More
  • My First Games Memories

    Keeping games lists always come in handy. One day I spent a whole afternoon checking my drawers with one purpose and one purpose only, to make a record of all the games that I've played. Being the arrival of the PS2 an event that marked my gaming... More
  • Memories Replaced by Ens and Naught

    (This is a repost of a blog series from 2011 I posted originally on Gamespot. There are minor spoilers and speculation on plot devices left up to the gamer.) What have I done? My whole life I've followed commands. My whole life I've served; my... More
  • Game Media Will Make You Hate Gaming

    For the past few months or so, I've struggled with a dilemma. I love games, I love the culture, I love the GIO community. But, there are several things in gaming that are just REALLY bumming me out. I've struggled with thoughts of whether it was... More
