  • Is It Even Possible To Play It All?

    44 1

    This is the time of year when my wife starts to complain, I lose touch with my friends, and my beard rivals Gandalf's, not in length but in how unkempt it is. This is the time of year where every gamer like myself starts to panic. The distress comes from the thought "how am I going to find the time to play all of the games that just hit store shelves?"

  • In Hindsight: The Meaning Of 100,000 Achievement Points

    43 1

    Do achievements mean anything to you? For some people, the sound of an achievement being unlocked is as annoying as a mosquito buzzing their ear. For others, it's the sound of greatness, and the sound of hard work paying off. More

  • The Next Movie I See: Endhiran – The Robot

    21 1

    I don't see many movies a year. Although my memory is fuzzy, I probably have only watched four or five this year – that includes both theatrical jaunts and home viewing. Don't get me wrong, I love movies, but I've found I'm more engaged by longer narratives like those found in games and television series. The compact two to three-hour experience just doesn't grasp me to the degree it used to. Hollywood is doing nothing wrong; I just like having longer stories and deeper character/plot development.

  • Give Emo Dante A Chance

    65

    A large portion of Game Informer's readers don't like Dante's new look. If I had to choose between the two renditions of him, classic or "young emo," I'd pick the old white-haired version, mostly because I've spent time with him. Who knows, a year from now, after I've spent time with the new version, I may lean in his direction. More

  • The 10 Batman Stories You Should Read After Playing Arkham Asylum

    43 11

    UPDATE: In the spirit of our Batman: Arkham City coverage, I figured I would move this list back up into the feed.

    ORIGINAL STORY When my Batman: Arkham Asylum review hit the Internet, my mailbox filled up with reader comments pertaining to my critique of the game’s story. Since I poked holes in the underdeveloped plot, most readers wanted to know what I thought made for a great Batman story. More

  • Green Lantern Movie Costume Revealed!

    32

    I'm a huge fan of Entertainment Weekly, and I've also read every issue of Green Lantern dating back to 1979. The "kick ass" that came out of my mouth when I saw EW's upcoming cover probably shook the foundation of Game Informer's office. I can't wait to see the Green Lantern movie! More

  • A Live Journal Of Battlefield: Bad Company 2's Onslaught Mode

    19 2

    I haven't kept up on my Battlefield: Bad Company 2 news. Like Matt Bertz, Game Informer's resident Battlefield freak, I lost interest in the game's multiplayer component once I unlocked all of the weapons and the servers became plagued with insufferable lag. I honestly didn't think I would be going back to play this game again any time soon, if ever. That tune changed when Bertz asked me if I would be interested in playing Bad Company 2's newest DLC entitled Onslaught. More

  • A Night To Forget In Red Dead Redemption

    56 4

    A few nights ago, I stood in line to pick up Red Dead Redemption at the midnight launch. As the minutes ticked by slower and slower, Game Informer's Nick Ahrens and I decided that we would forego playing single player, and would instead form a posse to terrorize other players. Along with Nick, my friends Phil Hoff, Adam Retzer, and Darnel (he believes only having one name will make him the next Madonna) decided to join in on our shenanigans. Big mistake. More
