    It's been a fairly lazy Saturday. From a game playing perspective, it's been pretty productive. Still playing Crysis 2 and loving it. The game is amazing and as I progress through the game I continue to be blown away with...everything. I'm also trying

    Today is Thursday, which is the day I normally post the Member Herding blog. If you're reading this, then on the surface you probably think everything is okay - I met my self-imposed deadline. The truth is, up until a short time ago I didn't have... More

    And there it was.

    Okay, well I suppose I could take a short break and hammer out a blog real quick. But it's going to be quick and short. The last thing I needed was another game to occupy my time. I'm already fighting my way through not one but two games concurrently... More

    The real world never stops...never sleeps...never takes a break. Life is good, but life is busy. Very busy. It's been awhile since I've done a recap blog to cover a whole bunch of topics I'm currently thinking about or working on, but I think... More

    Today is usually a day reserved for my ongoing blog series "From Player to Professional - My Quest to Work in the Video Game Industry" but this week I'm going to take a pause from that series to bring you something else. Ironically, this... More

    Well, normally I would be ecstatic that it's Friday because that would I mean I could stay up late playing video games then sleep in tomorrow...wake up whenever I want and do it all over again. Instead, I have to go to work tomorrow. It's hard... More

    Would you look at that? The Member Herding blog is back on track and being posted on the day I normally post it on (which is obviously Thursday). This member was initially selected a few weeks ago but due to some unforeseen circumstances, the blog wasn't ready in time. But persistence pays off and due to the Special "Bot" Edition of the Member Herding blog that was posted last week, I think we're back on track now.

    Or so I thought.

    This past weekend I did something I don't do too often - I went to the movies. Yep, took the whole family +1 (son's girlfriend) to see Battle: Los Angeles . I'm not even exaggerating when I say it cost $45.00 for 5 tickets and that's with... More

    Survival of the fittest? Perhaps.

    In response to one of my blogs a few days ago, GIO Member Hist and I exchanged a few comments on classic video games from that past that most of you probably weren't even alive when they were first released; or at the very least you weren't die... More

    You can file this one under taunts which I just posted a blog about taunts a day or so ago. Or you can file it under achievements. Heck you can even file it under short filler blogs that waste your time. I'm gonna post it anyway because I was uber... More

    Why?

    Okay...so here we are...part 3 of my ongoing series on my quest to work in the video game industry. The first episode was just kind of an overview that introduced the whole series before asking the question, "What is a game?" The second episode... More
