  • 31/31: Day 14- Top 10 Villains in Zelda

    What need would there be for a hero without a villain to fight? Since game one, Link has been destined to fight evil in all of its forms, from his long-standing archenemy, Ganon, to upstarts like Agahnim and The Helmrock King. These are, in my opinion... More
  • Rayman Legends Challenges App Impressions

    Back in February, a promising Wii U exclusive title was unceremoniously delayed until at the latest September. Lots of fans (including yours truly) were reasonably angered by this, and the backlash was so huge that lead designer Michel Ancel joined in... More
  • Why Always-Online Would Be Better Than Internet Checks

    This may not sound correct, but I think an always-online console would be more useful than one with 24 hour internet checks. Here's why: Reason #1 An always-online console would require people to fully utilize the Xbox One's cloud gaming service... More
  • Playing At War: Could Video Games One Day Help Resolve Global Conflicts?

    In 1913, esteemed author H.G. Wells (a well know pacifist) wrote a book on waging war, thought it might not be the kind of war you're thinking of. In his book Little Wars, Wells detailed a set of rules for playing war games using miniature toy soldiers... More
  • 31/31 Day 13- Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy

    Almost everyone on GIO has played a Lego game in some way, shape, or form. Let it be beating up the Joker, to swinging across a gap via the most amazing actor in the world's (you know he is) whip, we all have at least played one game in the brick... More
  • Remake the Bad Ones

    Great video games have been getting remakes, we know this. But why are bad video games never remade? You know, to improve the gameplay and make them good games. I'm speaking of games that actually had the potential to be good because they had a solid... More
  • Pushing Limits

    A Game of Balances Are video games an art form? The question is sure to stir up debate and needless strife. I wish to avoid such banter and get right down to the real issue that is often overlooked: interactive storytelling is our generation’s new... More
  • What's in a Name?

    This may come as a surprise to many, but I've never played a "real" MegaMan game. The blue bomber is an iconic member of the gaming pantheon, but I just never had any interest to jump, duck, and shoot my way from one robot boss to the other... More
  • Dumb Nintendo, dumb analyst...

    So I was on IGN when I found some interesting and ridiculous news.... The December 2009 Sales Review from Electronic Entertainment Design and Research (EEDAR) included the very interesting prediction that Nintendo would officially announce the DS2 within... More
  • Where Did Street Racing Drive Off To?

    I have been a die hard Need for Speed fan since the release of NFS Underground. Those were the days! Cruising the canyon highways at sunset in your Chrysler 300, or dodging overpass pillars as you blare past opponents in your suped up Toyota Supra. This... More
  • Good And Bad: Movies

    This summer so far has been pretty good. Nothing bad. Good games, low prices, excellent weather (as far as I know). But no summer could be complete without a day at the movie theatres or day watching movies. In the past month, I've been busy enough... More
  • 30/30 Day 3: The World of Pokémon Part 3- I Know It's My Destiny!

    If you're wondering why this was a day late, I'm posting my blogs on Wordpress first. Check them out here: Hi, I’m Tyler Magruder, or sorryjzargo... More
