    or "what happens when an attempted update continually crashes your system?" I've been 2 weeks without my PS3. Not that I've really noticed, since I don't really play games on it. But I do like to watch some Blu-Ray movies on it,... More
  • General blogging stuff

    4

    First day back at work after almost a week off sick, and things are really piling up.  Tonight, I probably won't have access to the computer for much time, so here's a post that I generally call "Potpourri" on my home blog.  Just some little postie-things that make up a bigger post.

  • Magic: The Gathering

    7

    I can't believe Magic: The Gathering came out 17 years ago!  I remember playing it with one of my friends who got me hooked on the game, though I was never very good at it.  The interest kind of waned for some reason, and since it was only the one friend I played with, I ended up selling my cards when I stopped playing.

  • Red Dead Redemption ending - SPOILERS

    7

    (This is a discussion of the ending and aftermath of Red Dead Redemption. If you haven't finished the game and intend to do so, then you may want to stop and read this later. I really do want to know what you think when you're done, though)

    Now that I've been blogging and interacting  on GI Online for a while, I've noticed a few things that could stand for improvement on the site.

  • Ways to know you spend too much time playing video games

    Many gamers put untold hours into their gaming addiction, sometimes spending whole days trying to beat a game or finish a level or complete a story. Is it too much time? It's hard to say.

    Not much of a video game post today, though I'll tie it in at the end.

  • 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.

    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.
