  • What Do You Do With Your Old Issues of Game Informer…


    Anyway...back to the topic at hand.

    Okay...before I get to the main point mentioned in the title of this blog, hang on just a second, bare with me and let me rattle on a bit. I'm sitting here after working on a couple of college assignments for the past few hours and the looming "Monday... More
  • AI – Artificial Intelligence or Ignorance…


    Combat Oriented AI.

    I know I've said this a dozen or so times already, but I am fascinated with video game development...and if there is one thing that simply amazes me about this industry, its artificial intelligence. Artificial Intelligence is just one component of... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 14 of XX



    If you would've told me this week's nominee was still in high school (or is that junior high?), I wouldn't have believed you. He's articulate, bright, positive and a productive member of the GIO community. With maturity beyond his years... More
  • No Thank You, I’m Full. Too Many of the Same Game…


    Big Money. Big Prizes.

    So, believe it or not...I actually play games from time to time...I don't always blog about the gaming industry. Just tonight I played some Monday Night Combat. What an interesting game. Monday Night Combat is a downloadable third-person shooter video... More
  • Big Brother’s Watching…


    Before I jump in, let me give you a bit of the background...

    As an avid gamer and someone who has tinkered in the realm of video game development I am fascinated with the mechanics behind level design, map construction and the quality control measures used to evaluate the product from production to implementation... More
  • Video Game Heroes: The Strong Silent Type…


    Apparently I like the strong silent types...

    If saying Halo is my favorite game ever makes me a fan boy, well then...I guess I'm a fan boy. I just like the game, everything about it. I'm not one of those maniacal fan boys that obsessively talks and talks (or in my case blogs and blogs) about... More
  • Hard Scoping vs. Quick Scoping = Nonsense…

    29 1

    Simply's my opinion.

    If you are a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 fanboy or just the are a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 anti-fanboy, then you might not want to read this blog. And if you choose not to read this blog because I am going to refer to this game... More
  • GIO Member Herding 13 of XX...


    GIO Name: Colton

    Better late than never. First things first - apparently a few of you fell for my little joke about last week's Member Herding being the last one. For the record, that was just a joke. I wanted to see who was paying attention. As long as there is an... More
  • When Geeks Run Gun Stores…


    So what does this have to do with video games and geeks...

    Since work has been extremely busy the past week and I've spent most of my normal game playing time hammering out a blog just in time for bed, tonight I am going to take a break from blogging and actually play some video games. I know, right?!? Does... More
  • Cops: The Video Game...


    So basically...a game of cops and robbers!

    I don't normally blog about the whole "I have a great idea for a video game"...but tonight I am. Kind of. I guess. You see, I was watching Cops or one of those "Cops" like shows and for whatever reason I started thinking about... More
  • Evaluating Video Game Genres by Platform...


    And last but not least...

    I just finished playing a little of the H.A.W.X. 2 demo which subsequently inspired this blog. Having never played the first one, I will say the second go at it was beautiful...but the controls left a lot to be desired. Oh hey...guess what. You don't... More
  • Saint's Defining Moments in the World of Video Games...



    In response to the blog I posted yesterday titled, "Missing the Next Big Thing", GIO Community Member Josh replied with a valid response when he asked "Give me examples of things that were the next big thing. I started to respond to the... More
