    REPLAY

    This was one of my favorite blogs and I remember being a little disappointed when it didn't get more attention than what it did. But thanks to my new REPLAY series, it will get another shot in the spotlight. It was posted way back on February 07,... More

    I'm a nerd.

    While I enjoy blogging every day real life events have certainly put a strain on my ability to accomplish this feat. Most of you know what I do or at least have a general idea. Read the news and you can probably figure out what I mean. On top of that... More

  • REPLAY: A Novel Idea...

    20

    Well, it's Saturday and the gaming has been good to me. I was pretty lethal on Medal of Honor (PC). Played 4 rounds and came in 3rd twice, 2nd once and 1st once. All rounds were Team Assault. So I was feeling pretty beast. Then I played some more Dead Space. I figure I'm just now about 1/2 way through it. I really can't wait to write up a blog on it. I'm taking lots of notes and trying to take some screenshots of it too, although I don't know how they'll turn out.

    Hard to believe that February has come and gone. Sure, it's a short month, but still...it's done and over; a memory of the past now. In keeping with my goal and my new blog series, I present to you the GIO User Blog Statistics for the month of... More
  • Sharing Your Video Games – How Publishers Could Help…

    Anyway...just something I was thinking about.

    More
    I can't take credit for the idea behind this blog; unfortunately I can't remember where I read the idea originally. It was presented a bit differently, so I don't feel like I'm totally ripping it off. Anyway, I wasn't even really thinking... More

    I can't blog tonight. Well, not really. Certainly not a happy go lucky blog about video games. The truth is one of our GIO Family Members is hurting tonight. A pain so deep I can't even begin to imagine what it feels like. And so out of respect... More
