  • What Achievements Mean To Me

    In light of a recent opinion piece, written by Matt Helgeson, in Game Informer magazine and a well written rebuttal, blogged by Demon Ragnarok, I've decided to throw my two cents into the great achievement debate. Whether you love them or hate them... More
  • Virgin Gaming: When Advertising Pays Off…

    Perhaps you’ve notice the big red banners streaming across the pages of Game Informer Online lately that are advertising Virgin Gaming. The red definitely pops and gets your attention, huh? I think so anyway. There was one day there where the blog... More
  • This Is A Public Service Announcement

    Play Mother 3. This is one of three games that have ever left me speechless. Those other two games are Shadow of the Colossus and Bioshock. Or, if you already have played it, were you shocked, flabbergasted, humored, then reduced to tears like I was?... More

  • Are you ready?

    So here we go again, among an already packed fall line up, the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise will be released on November 9th. Call of Duty: Black Ops will be perhaps the greatest COD to date and to be completely honest, I don't think I'm... More
  • The Sweet Sweet Review of Scott Pilgrim vs The World (I'm going to need to order this on

    It's been awhile since I've reviewed a movie (about 2 weeks, which really is too long) and I decide to go and see Scott Pilgrim, well I didn't really decide, Liz did. I wanted to see The Expendables , but couldn't convince her of this... More
  • A Reply to Matt Helgeson (From Someone That Does Not Work In the Industry)

    After reading Matt Helgeson's opinion piece in the latest issue of Game Informer, I felt the need to reply. But to be honest, I think I have a bit more to say than I can fit in a letter to the magazine. Let me preface this by saying that if you were... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 11 of XX

    This week’s Member Herding adopted a unique approach to selecting the person to be spotlighted. A simple task really – answer a question posted in my GIO profile status. While everyone that was interested in participating in this technically... More
  • The Okami Effect

    We know all about the terrible PR and business decisions that publishers make. But us gamers know better, right? We know how to spend our hard-earned cash on GOTY contenders while side-stepping mere 7 or 8-point-something games. Rant time! Then we have... More
