    Recently, there has been some gnashing of teeth about the frequency some people post blogs. "You're forcing other good blogs off the front page!" or "It's just too much to read at one time!" I actually don't understand... More
  • The Call of Duty Multiplayer Multiblog

    12

    There are a *lot* of Black Ops blogs out there, saying a lot of things I could already say (and I'm sure lots that I would disagree with too).

    There are a *lot* of Black Ops blogs out there, saying a lot of things I could already say (and I'm sure lots that I would disagree with too). I'm not going to review the game, or the multiplayer, because it's all been done before. I would... More
  • Splosion Man - Running toward greatness, one explosion at a time

    4

    I've never really been much of a "platformer" gamer. I never played the various Mario games; Donkey Kong was enjoyable at the time, but I hold no real fond memories of it other than as just one of the many coin-op games I played as a kid.

  • Call of Duty - responsible for a baby non-boom?

    I've seen a lot of Call of Duty articles recently due to the recent launch of Black Ops (I haven't read that many, but I've seen them).

  • Remembering the Fallen and Those Who Served

    7

    It's November 11. Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day, depending on where you live.

    Do people really remember what this day is for?

    I hope they do. This is the day where we remember the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have fought to preserve our freedom. Those who ha

  • Feeling sorry for game characters

    I was playing this one level of Splosion Man last night (yes, I downloaded it, and yes, it is an awesome platformer...review to come when I'm finished).

  • Blogging stuff - and other junk

    24

    There's been a lot of tension in the GI blogging community over the last few days. While I don't have a lot to say about it, I do have something, so I thought I'd do a "items too small for their own blog posts" post, for your reading pleasure (or displeasure, or indifference).

  • Comic Jumper - Jumping from comic to comic

    10

    I wasn't sure about the new XBLA game, Comic Jumper, put out by Twisted Pixel. A quick download of the trail version, however, quickly put that uneasiness to rest. It was funny, had some good side-scrolling action, and gave me that old-style arcade game feel (except updated).

    This is for the old folks here, though the rest of you can take part too (see below).

    This is for the old folks here, though the rest of you can take part too (see below). We all love video games here, or else we wouldn't be here. Some people have some very fond memories of their first console, be it SNES or PS1 or whatever. But some... More
  • Activision's biggest 2010 failure

    27

    Those who have been following this blog know that I'm not an Activision-hater. In fact, I've come to its defense a few times. Somebody complaining about CoD being run into the ground? I'm there defending it. Complaints about Bobby Kotick's latest news-making statements? Ok, I'm not always there, but I do occasionally point out when he's been taken out of context.

    You @#%@%@%!%!!!!!! No, that's not what I think of you, dear reader. You know you're the most important thing to me. In reality, that's the typical conversation some gamers have with their TVs or monitors when they're playing a game. I've... More
