  • 31/31 Day 9 - Motion Controls are Dumb

    Got your attention? Its obvious that I dislike motion controls. This opinion of mine isn't based on tomfoolery and heresay. I've had first hand experience with all of the Big 3's motion controls, and in each instance, I was less than impressed... More
  • 31/31 Day 8 - What I Want In... #11 - Killzone 4

    6

    So, I am a huge fan of the Killzone series. Its a Playstation exclusive series, and my FPS series of choice. Killzone is my Halo. In fact, Killzone was originally advertised as "The Halo Killer" but we all know how that turned out. In fact, it may be the opposite. Halo is thriving, while I am unsure if there will even be a Killzone 4. As a fan, I sincerely hope there is.

    I hate glitches in video games.

    I hate glitches in video games. I could end this blog right then and there, but I think I'd get a few negative comments, so I'll explain myself a little bit. Contrary to popular belief, Bethesda did not invent the glitch. In fact, as far back... More
  • 31/31 Day 6 - XCOM: Enemy Unknown (Review)

    More
    I had absolutely no interest in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Then one day, my friend Tim (Ashaman3000) left a comment on my GIO page that compared it to one of my favorite PS2 games, Front Mission 4. I then started paying attention to Twitter, and I saw the GI... More
  • 31/31 Day 5 - Video Game Mash-Ups I Want To See

    8

    Every gamer enjoys a game that mixes together character or concepts from other games. Disagree with me? Look at Super Smash Bros. Playstation even got in on that money opportunity with its Battle Royale. Mario Kart could be considered a mash-up as well.

    Be warned... this blog/GaMe was not planned out. I'm winging this one. Enjoy, Jameson! Professor Jameson awoke to the sounds of Pidgey and Starly twittering outside of his window. He had always meant to cut down that tree, but old age had prevented... More
  • 31/31 Day 3 - My GIO Pet Peeves

    The GIOers that know me knew that it was only a matter of time before I complained about something during this 31/31. I have a huge pool of material in the subject of things I dislike, but I decided to keep it GIO related.

    I am a gamer. I love video games. Believe it or not, and this may get me into some trouble, but video games are NOT the most important thing in my life. In fact, the medium comes in second place. So... what wins the gold? For those of you on Twitter,... More

  • GaMe Week 22 - dadarkheart - Da Duck Hunt

    7

    I've been out of the GaMe scene for a bit. I've come to the point where I need people to inflate my ego, so I have returned in hopes of extending my win column, and to add more buttons on my profile page. For those of who too young to get the title reference, this GaMe will feature a game called Duck Hunt. Ask your parents about it... insanely fun.
