    Timing and coincidence can be a funny thing. I came to Game Informer in May 2010. In fact, it's been just over 4 years. I was a frequent blogger, but I haven't written a blog post since August 2013. And I haven't commented on anything (until... More
  • GIO, You're Killing Me!!! - or Ways to Get Through GIO's Current Meltdown

    15 2

    I've been a much more frequent visitor to GIO lately than I had been for a little while. I'm still not here all the time and I do miss some blogs (though not that many, considering they seem to be slowing down), but it used to be a few weeks between visits. Now it's more like a couple of days. I'm also blogging more than I have been, though not to an excessive level.

    Those of you who follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Raptr (and if you're not, why not?) know that I've finally been playing Skyrim. Actually, maybe it was my most recent blog posts that clued you in to that fact as well.

    Everybody has heard the complaints about parents in our society who let television or video games raise their kids. In fact, I think these parents get a bad rap.

    (With non-apologies to Kanye West) I was playing Tomb Raider last night ( Editor's note : This post was actually started back in March and I just discovered that I never finished it), a wonderful reboot of the series, and something hit me. Early in... More

    We've all heard that familiar refrain. You're having an innocent discussion on Twitter or wherever (maybe even in "real" life?) and you mention a game where something similar happens. Inevitably, you hear this: "I was doing my best... More
  • The Quest is the Thing

    I still remember fondly the day Rognar, the Inefficient wandered into my little hamlet of Poshdale. He was a muscular guy in iron-plated armor with a huge battle axe strapped on his back. He seemed to my young eyes to be eight feet tall, with a bushy red beard.

    Actually, no spoilers, but now that I have your attention. I was reading Games Radar earlier today, and came across this interesting editorial by David Houghton: " Why Publishers Are Killing Their Games With Pre-Release Hype ." And it got me... More

    I love action games, be they first-person shooters or third-person shoot-em-ups. I'm not as big on platformers, but they can be fun at times.

  • Game Informer - Impressive E-Mag!

    Waaaaaaaaaaay back in February 2011, I mentioned how Andy McNamara helped me transfer my Game Informer subscription from magazine to digital mag. I've been enjoying it that way ever since, except for a brief period (not sure how long) where I let my subscription lapse because I wasn't reading the mag on my computer like I had hoped I would (so I was issues behind).
