  • Super Meat Boy - Testing My Motivation for Playing Games

    13

    UPDATE: I bought Super Meat Boy - wow, this game is fun! It has warp zones, a light & dark world, 8-bit style levels, 16-bit style levels, characters you unlock by finding, characters you unlock by purchasing (with the bandages you collect) and more. It hasn't been BRUTALLY challenging (yet.) There was a few times that I got stuck and died several times in a row, but the comical "all attempts replaying at the same time" replay at the end of each level completed helped alleviate the tension.

  • Fatigued: A Response to Gamer Gorilla Radio

    20

    In the latest edition of Gamer Gorilla Radio, Andy McNamara asks, "Are gamers fatigued about the video game violence topic?" I'd say we're fatigued by that topic and several others. Personally, I rarely do topical blog posts. Why? Because nearly every major topic has been discussed eight ways to Sunday. Many people complain about the lack of quality activity here at GIO, but maybe there is just nothing new to talk about. Think about it...
