    Not much of a video game post today, though I'll tie it in at the end. I was at work yesterday, minding my own business and generally just doing my job (checking in on the Game Informer site as well at times). We've got interviews for a new position... More
  • Worms 2! - And other XBLA Deals of the Week

    1

    After reading Saint's ode to the wonder that is the Worms franchise (or at least the first couple of games), i was intrigued, but wasn't really interested in tracking the game(s) down. There's just so much other stuff to play!

  • Why do I feel like I've now arrived? - Level 5 achieved!

    8

    So I'm level 5 now.  For some reason, despite the "Points System" post stating that Subscribers have their blog posts show up on the main Blog page from the very beginning, that hasn't been happening.  I'm assuming they've changed that but haven't updated the post. How about it, Game informer?

  • Arcade Game Suggestions Needed

    9

    I'm in the middle of Red Dead Redemption and I have Mass Effect 2 in the works, but I also need something to just blow off steam.  Something short and punchy for those nights where I just don't have the energy for anything involved, or when I only have a 20 minutes or so to play.

  • Some great Red Dead Redemption moments

    One of the things I love about Red Dead Redemption, as well as the Grand Theft series, is the little touches that Rockstar puts into the game. Little bits of atmosphere that indicate that anything can happen in this world. Sometimes it's just something in the background, cool enough that you just stop playing and let it all wash over you. Other times, something happens during an action sequence that just makes you laugh.

  • Minor annoyances

    Everybody's got their pet peeves (God, I hate that phrase).  These things that just kind of tick us off, but don't truly make us irate.

  • In the Beginning - A Gaming Introduction

    1

    Everybody seems to have a post about their gaming history, what started them gaming, and all of that good stuff.   So I figured why not me too?  Since people are finally starting to come and read some of my posts (though more are always welcome!), I should probably introduce myself.

  • Replaying games

    Are you a game replayer?  Do you find yourself going through a game more than once, whether it's because the game was so fun or because you want to get an achievement?

  • Journalistic Ethics?

    No, this is not a comment on today's lapdog media. Instead, it's a question I put to you. And while the subject matter is video game related, it is kind of a universal question.

  • Something for you lonely gamer guys out there?

    Are you tired of playing your Xbox or PC online games alone or with just your guy friends? Weary of killing zombies with the same old lame male companions?

    And, most importantly, do you have some money?

  • Viva Pinata - Thoroughly Charmed

    Was looking around for something to play this afternoon, since I really wasn't in the mood for more Bad Company 2, and happened upon Viva Pinata.  We had bought it a while back for really cheap ($5, maybe?) because the wife thought it was "cute."  Just never really decided to play it because it was such a "kid's game" and I'm into action!
