  • Cancer Sucks

    I should probably start this off with a sort of apology This blog won't have my usual brand of humor or incredibly quick wit. I just don't feel up to it, and I haven't in a couple weeks now. I have 100+ other blogs if that's what you're looking for. Instead, I feel the need the write about life. My life, to be specific. I am hoping that this will serve as some sort of therapy for me, in a way. I need to get it out, down on paper, or as technology dictates, in blog form.

  • Late To The Party

    2

    I'm no good at parties. I'm a bit anti-social, and being forced to be somewhere I don't want to be is extremely annoying. I would much rather be alone or with a select number of people and just relax. This has carried over to my video game habits as well. I've always played games alone, with the exception of a drunken couch co-op session when my dad felt like he was better than me. Spoiler: he never was.

  • Hold The Salt

    Video games are a source of a good time. Happiness, fun, excitement, joy... all can be experienced while playing a game. Then again, so can anger, rage, frustration, and saltiness. Ah, salt. The rustling of jimmies, so to speak. Getting killed when you... More
  • Community Writing Challenge - Seeking Perfection

    Perfect. It’s a tricky word. Nothing is truly perfect, in my opinion. Even though games get a perfect rating every now and again, a truly perfect game doesn’t exist. There are several that come pretty close, but there’s always something... More
  • Expand Your Mind

    Video game expansions are a tricky thing. They are meant to expand on the main game in a worthwhile way. Whether it be through advancements in gameplay or fleshing out the story or even tying together loose ends, expansions can make a game feel complete... More
  • Am I A Fanboy?

    “Are you a fanboy?” a teenager asked, as I sat in the hospital waiting room. At first I didn’t know who he was talking to, but he was staring right at me. “Your shirt” he said, raising a finger to point. That day, I was wearing... More

    Here lately, a few of the older GIO bloggers have returned to write. I’ve wanted to do so for quite a while, and I’ve recently been given the tools to do just that. So, consider me back from the dead. This is a video game website, as we are... More

    Before I start this little blog, I first want to thank everyone that took a peek at my previous blog. It was my first on GIO in over a year, and managed over 500 views in 24 hours of it being published. So, again, I appreciate it.

  • The Best FPS I've Ever Played

    More
    I'm not a FPS expert. I wouldn't even call myself knowledgeable about the genre. After living on this Earth for 28 years, and playing video games for 24 of them, I know what I like. And the Wolfenstein franchise isn't it. I'm a simple... More

    I suppose this blog could be called my 'Swan Song' but hopefully that won't be the case. I haven't been blogging as much here lately, and that's mostly been on purpose. I had limited myself to one a week in an effort to work on quality... More

    It's no secret that I am a pretty huge Rockstar fan. Ever since GTA 2, I've had my eye on them, and they rarely disappoint. While I haven't played their driving games, Rockstar's other franchises are some of my favorites. For me, their... More

    Before I start, I'd like to express my condolences and sympathies to the people affected by the explosions during the Boston Marathon. I don't think I'll ever understand why we, as a people, do things like that. Honestly, I don't really... More
