  • The Most Terrifying Book I've Ever Read

    15

    That's horrifying.

    More
    I like to read, as mentioned previously . You can get some interesting and unique experiences from books. Sometimes, however, I find a book that's too unique. The results can be fascinating and repulsive and horrifying all at once. This happened with... More
  • Reviewing User Reviews

    12 2

    That's for blogging. Reviews are another matter.

    More
    As you may have noticed, I've been blogging less recently. Schoolwork is the biggest problem. Memorizing 900 terms and eight short stories doesn't leave much time for other activities. I also have been focusing more on writing reviews. After almost... More
  • 5 Programs for PC I Can't Go Without

    Google Chrome

    Since you're reading this post right now, I'll assume that you have access to a computer. Sure, somebody is probably on their phone or tablet, but they're exceptions. Most of you have a PC. The computer is the topic of today's discussion... More
  • The Best Case For Games As Art

    11 3

    Apologies for posting this in the blog section. Unfortunately, GI does not have a user review section for Braid. Hence why I posted this as a blog. It's also my first real attempt at a more concise style of writing. Ernest Hemingway is the man. Love to hear some feedback, tell me what you think in the comments.

  • Should Games Be Serious?

    17

    I hate blog openings. There's no real easy way to start a blog. You want to catch the reader's interest (usually with a personal anecdote of some kind) without talking too long about how

    I hate blog openings. There's no real easy way to start a blog. You want to catch the reader's interest (usually with a personal anecdote of some kind) without talking too long about how your dog relates to Skyrim. So, today I think I'll pass... More
  • 3 Helpful Tips For Blogging at GIO

    19

    Don't upload images, use Imgur

    More
    One of the things that are unofficial requirements for blogging at GIO is a working knowledge of how the blog editor works. If you can't figure out how to post a blog, it's a bit difficult for people to see it. Then there's the formatting... More
  • How Do You Make Time For Gaming?

    27

    However...

    More
    I don't particularly enjoy going to school. Call me crazy, but there are just so many more fun things to do than sit in a classroom all day and listen to somebody else talk. Fun isn't the right word. School is necessary . I certainly don't... More
  • Next-Gen Graphics Might Be Too Realistic For Me

    21

    To be honest... I don't know if that's a good thing.

    More
    One of the highlights coming out of E3 was the premiere of Unreal Engine 4 and a precious few games that admitted to using it to run next-gen graphics. As far as I know, only one of the Final Fantasy games directly stated that their graphics were designed... More
  • Why Won't David Cage Spell Eiden?

    8 1

    Why would you not spell a character's name?

    More
    I was recently reading through Game Informer's coverage of E3 and all the games revealed there. One particularly interesting title was Beyond: Two Souls , the new game from the makers of Heavy Rain. It's a strange new title about a girl played... More
  • Who Else Watches The Legend of Korra?

    27

    The writing for Korra and the other character is really good. They feel a lot like real people who deal with their problems in a realistic way (even if those problems involve shooting fireballs at each other). Put it this way: I had a genuinely difficult time choosing a picture of Korra to put at the top left of this post. No one picture really did a good job of summing up the entirety of her character. There's far more than can be contained within a single image.

    I usually make it a point not to watch television shows meant for children. Kids' shows are usually terrible. That's just how it goes. Sorry, but I'll take high-octane backstabbing in Game of Thrones over learning how to share from The Wiggles... More
  • The Ending to Mass Effect Is Still Bad

    21

    And yet... I didn't love the ending. (Side note: This blog is spoiler-free)

    More
    In case you haven't heard, the Extended Cut to Mass Effect 3 came out. The DLC is supposed to clear up some lingering questions about the final moments of the trilogy without fundamentally changing anything that happened in the endings. Shepard's... More
  • Well. Dead Space Is Terrifying.

    18

    Dead Space is scary.

    More
    Remember a while back when I lamented the lack of games that could actually scare me? You all really stepped up to the plate with a whole lot of games that sound terrifying. By far the most common suggestion was to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Rest... More
