  • Rockstar's #MaxPayne3 - - Tweeting the Noir

    [Updated Jan. 11 - yes I know I wrote "story24" twice... woops!] A few weeks ago, I saw a tweet from @RockstarGames about a clever campaign / contest to get everyone talking about Max Payne 3. (Gameinformer posted a story about it shortly afterward... More

  • Sony Drops the Mic with the most Important Game of the Current Generation—No Man's Sky

    Hello, bloggers and gamers of Game Informer! Yesterday was a very busy and hectic day, so the post was postponed a day again. Anyway, this week's post is on the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It's pretty ironic to me that I love Skyrim. The only other... More
  • GaMe Week 26 - Markus Needs Speed
