  • Do I deserve to be considered a "hardcore" gamer?

    As the title says above, I suddenly began to question my status as gamer. It happened suddenly last night. I was playing Sonic CD when the thought came into my mind. This caused me to stop playing and take a look back on my gaming carrer as a whole. I've... More
  • The Pros and Cons of each console

    Recently on GIO, I have seen a lot of discussions of which console is best, which one they play most, etc. I have all three consoles, I have played each one a lot. I spend most of my time on my X360, and I play all my cross platform games on my 360. I... More
  • Innovation vs. Refinement: When Should Video Games Apply Them?

    This console generation has seen some of the best games ever to come out. The quality is continuously much better than in years past in my opinion. Developers have been adding more and more content as time goes by and games get more complex. Developers... More

  • Assassins Creed: Brotherhood AKA Ridiculous story inc.

    Don't worry, I'm not going to criticize AC for having a crazy story. It's basically the video game version of Lost. Both jump around in time, both are crazy, both insist on killing off my favorite characters. Oh yeah, there might be SPOILERS... More
  • [Update] No Phil, I'M the world's greatest detective.

    Congrats. If you caught that joke, you're a Gameinformer nerd like me. If you didn't, it's a joke Phil Kollar made in Gameiformer's Batman: Arkham City podcast. Anyways, this story doesn't have much to do with Batman, but an equally... More
  • A New Hope? Not. Or Not Exactly?

    Well, as most have probably figured out by now, those rumors regarding the grand unveiling of alien corpses from Area 51 NASA's "big announcement" about a new scientific discovery have little to do with solutions to the big questions regarding... More

    Update: As is if this blog post didn't have enough embedded videos I've added 2 more. In my search for a collection of unaltered Sonic music I came across the band Megadriver. They hail from Brazil with 5 albums and 3 EPs under their belt; pretty... More
  • The Tyranny of Father Time

    With the holidays in full gear, my video game and film collections are likely to grow. As is my desperation at keeping up with them. If there was a trophy or achievement for futility, it would have my gamertag written all over it. I recently picked up... More
