  • "What do we want? Brains!" Zombie Pub Crawl 2009

    7 3

    This weekend was the first time I had ever been part of a themed pub crawl. Our group met up at my apartment early afternoon. My bathroom was packed with zombies applying makeup and blood effects. The rest of us hung out in the living room and played Left 4 Dead and watched zombie movies.

    Our first stop was Gold Medal Park where there were groups of other zombies waiting for the crawl to start. It was freezing outside! They immediately recognized the Left 4 Dead group (Meagan and co.) and went in for the attack. More

  • The[Crafty]Gamer: Blog For The Gamer/Artisan

    10 1

    Welcome to the new home of Game Informer online! The new site gives us all the opportunity to really break beyond the pages of the magazine to deliver more content and interact with the gaming community.

    We’re all here because we have a common hobby: playing video games. Not only do these blogs give us the opportunity to chat about what we’re playing, industry happenings and more, but also let us go beyond the controller and talk about the culture as a whole. In the video game world we not only have gamers, we have cosplayers, toy makers, musicians, artists and more who find a way to link these hobbies back to video games (check out other editors’ blogs that cover some of these hobbies). In an industry that demands insurmountable creativity from its developers, it’s no surprise that fans ooze with creativity of their own. More
