  • Twas The Night Before Christmas...



    Tomorrow is Christmas which obviously means tonight is Christmas Eve. I know not everybody celebrates or recognizes Christmas, but there is no denying that's what tomorrow is. Hey, I'm not a fan of Columbus Day. I kind of think it's a sham... More
  • Rank Has Its Privileges (RHIP)…

    But then I played it.

    I can admit it now, because the game is old and I no longer play it, but I used to be a Battlefield 2 fanboy. I logged a lot of hours in the game. A lot. When boasting about hours logged on a game, there's often a fine line between it being an impressive... More
  • Past (2010), Present (2011), Future (2012)…



    I read an article the other day...doesn't really matter where...that had a headline that read something like, "You thought 2011 was an amazing year for video games - just wait for 2012". I thought it was a bit odd, because this time last... More
  • Game Informer’s Newest Competition = Walmart…

    Think about this...who buys lots of video games?

    A day or so ago I was shopping at Walmart for some Commander Shepard Axe body wash (that's a joke referring to a blog I posted a few weeks ago) when I made my rounds through everybody whose probably reading this's favorite part of Walmart - Electronics... More
  • Does Quantity (Number of Games You Play) Matter...

    vid·e·o · game · ne·glect

    While I may be one of the few gamers resistant to the Skyrim contagion that has spread like wildfire and reached pandemic levels in record time, I have suffered my own addictions to a particular video game or two in my time and understand what some of... More
  • Blessed Are The Peacemakers...

    A few points are obvious.

    Have you ever gotten a thought (in this case a thought about a video game) stuck in your head that no matter how hard you try or what you do to take your mind off of it, you just can't shake it. Well, that's been happening to me. I have this feeling... More
  • Saint’s Book Report: Halo Cryptum…


    I even bought Halo Wars, heh heh. And liked it.

    I enjoy reading and here lately, at least the last few years or so, I've been reading mostly books that are video game related. Truth be told, I enjoy writing and wouldn't mind authoring a book one day myself, but who knows if that will ever happen... More
  • When Real Life and Video Games Collide...


    Clearly if you've been around Game Informer for any length of time or, for whatever crazy reason, happen to be a regular reader of my blogs, you might make the assumption that I am a video game blogger. It's funny because I actually don't... More
  • Good Idea, Free of Charge…


    If only there was a way?

    Every now and then I'll float an idea out there for the community to gnaw on and provide feedback. Sometimes it's an idea that is plausible and likely to occur, but most of the times it's an idea that's farfetched or beyond anyone's... More
  • Insert Another Coin To Continue…


    Ah, I thought you'd never ask.

    I suppose after blogging about Pac-Man and my little journey down memory lane yesterday I was feeling a bit nostalgic today and decided to blog about something I saw a few weeks ago on a business trip that landed me in Orlando, Florida. No More
  • Gamers Prone To Catch Bird Flu (Angry Birds Fever)…

    It was a pandemic of global consequence.

    Maybe you're a product of the 80s, or maybe you're not but you've heard the legends and read the history books. There was a phenomenon occurring in the 80s that swept across the nation, nay the world or at least parts of it. It spread like... More
  • The Ever Increasing Footprint Of The Video Game Industry...


    1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ($775m)

    You don't need me to tell you the video game industry is big business. If you've been a gamer for any length of time, no doubt you've seen, heard, experienced a few of the major events that have occurred in the past few years that have solidified... More
