  • Fixing a 360: A Prologue

    So recently, the video has gone out on my Xbox 360. No red ring of death, no warning signs (besides a little flicker the day before), and poof! Very depressing, especially since it's the long weekend and I was hoping to catch up on some gaming. But... More
  • Moments: Fire Emblem Awakening

    ***SPOILERS*** The rain pours. The sun is masked by the clouds. Nothing can be heard above the downpour except the wet steps of Chrom and his army, weakened and disheartened. Emmeryn, their peace-loving leader, had just died, sacrificing herself in the... More
  • Introducing myself.

    Hey guys, so I have been a member of this site for a while now, but I have never really introduced myself. I think that it is about time that I get that out of the way. Well to begin with my name is Matt and I am a senior in high school. I love video... More
  • 7 Video Game franchises that should "Take it easy," for awhile...

    I guess you could say this is similar to a shortened version of the classic Game Informer 'Sacred Cow Barbecue' or a Sheen roast, but I'm just stating what most others probably feel somewhere and to some extent within. I do not deny that any... More
  • [31/31: The Movie | Part 11] Pokemon 3 (2001) / Pokemon 4Ever (2002)

    Today is a double-feature -- but don't worry, it doesn't mean I hate you. It's just because neither movie has enough plot for me to write a full entry about. Pokémon 3 (2001) Pokémon 3 ends the trend of the movies sending kids... More
  • Games: Escaping Reality Or Exploring It?

    The last couple of weeks have been less than stellar. I've been plodding along, but it's been an uncomfortable go. I was talking about it to a friend, and I happened to say, "Thank god for games." His reply: "Yep. It's a nice... More
  • Persona Made Me Enjoy Boss Battles Again

    Boss battles can be some of the most iconic and memorable moments in gaming. The epic battles where we defeat the most powerful enemies we've faced yet are the ones we look back on fondly with a sense of accomplishment. But for some reason, in recent... More
  • Cell Phones destroying us

    5 1
    Our society is completely immersed in cell phone usage. Everywhere you go, there are people on their phones, texting, surfing and talking. Question is, are cell phones helping or hurting us? Benefits helps us communicate faster helps us with everyday... 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
  • Gamedonator Week 6: Fight for the Children

    [Update] Two more marathons have shown themselves since I have last looked at the calendar. Let's start with the event Union Games 48 Stream which starts at 11:59PM (U.K. Time) on Feb 3 (today) and will end on Feb 5. This U.K.-based group will be... More
  • How the Game Won Me

    I love videogames. There's really no way to get around it. I just do. Some people are book worms. Some are cinephiles. I'm a gamer, and have been for a long, long time. I've blogged, read the news, and met people on this site for about five... More
  • My Gaming: Shooters

    This is the first part of a multi-part series that I will refer to as My Gaming. Each part of the series will detail a different genre of my gaming past. I'm currently deciding on what else to do but I know that I will be doing RPGs, Strategy, as... More
