  • A Series of Catch-22's

    Why does he need to look at a cue card for this? Are these easy fixes? Microsoft has clearly shot themselves in both feet bad enough that it’s becoming impossible for anyone but the staunchest Xbox/Halo fanboys to stick around and put up with their... More
  • 31/31 3 Day 22: The Best Strategy Games of All Time (Tower Defense)

    Tower Defense, probably the oddest subgenre of strategy out there. In Tower Defense games, you usually don’t command units. You have to set up defenses to stop a swarm of enemies from getting to a certain part of a map. So I’ve picked out... More
  • WGWC #7 - Wandering Seafarers

    So this week's WGWC is one that I'm fairly excited for - to describe a setting that you would like to live in, why, all that stuff. This was easy in the fact that I consistently expose myself to myriad worlds and settings due to my gaming and... More
  • 3/28 - My Fav Series/Franchises

    With today being Sunday and me being very very very very tired and full of no energy, I think I will bore you with a list today. There really is no real order of favs except for the very last one. Oh and there is also no set number. I'll just add... More
  • The compact thoughts of the grouchy old dude. Or Mr. dude's Opus.

    Hello everyone, this is the Grouchy old dude and to be frank this next blog is really gonna show my age. So you have been warned. Well anyway today me and my lovely wife of 14 years were strolling the aisles of the local Wally World (That's Wal-mart... More
  • No Clever Title: It's Memorial Day

    This week, I'm switching my schedule around--the next installment of The Mercenary's Tale will show up on Wednesday. As you probably know, today is Memorial Day. Ya know, that day when we remember and honor veterans? Ok. Good. You do remember... More
  • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer beta impressions

    Ok, I'm not going to beat around the bush, this multiplayer is amazing. It provides a huge change of pace from the regular multiplayer games, (Call of Duty, I'm looking at you!) and changes a lot of what you've come to expect from online play... More
  • The Mysterious Madden Rating

    I've been (regretfully sometimes) pretty likely to purchase a Madden game every other year or so, since 1994 or 1995. One of most important things in the series has always been player ratings. I don't remember a lot about Madden '95, as I... 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
  • Blog Reformation

    Today, the sad truth dawned on me. My blog, consisting of useless game ideas and one actual comment on the gaming we all love and cherish. No more, I am revamping my blog- OUR blog, to be something Gameinformer can actually be proud of. For now on, I'm... More
  • Loss Of Words.

    In the GOW3 issue, a guy wrote in to GI saying he was the only person who really cared about the future of gaming. He said that he had subscriptions to game magazines, bought all the new games, defended all video game companies- well, I'll just copy... More
  • Scanning planets for fun and frolic!

    What is the point of video games making you do stupid and boring stuff? What games have you played where they make you do them? On my July 4th weekend, I spent a lot of time playing Mass Effect 2 , along with a couple other XBLA games. I am definitely... More
