    Phew. Busy day. Long day. Major traffic jam on the way home, and all I want to do is shoot something. Virtually of course, but something nonetheless. Tonight is a quick and easy blog. Hope you don't mind. I was updating the Twitter and Facebook page... More
  • Us vs. Them – Understanding the Different GIO Factions…

    30 1

    Game Informer Online has factions...or divisions.

    [EDIT: THIS IS A CRAP BLOG. IF I DIDN'T RUN OUT OF TIME I WOULD'VE JUST DELETED IT. READ AT OUR OWN RISK. IT MADE SENSE IN MY HEAD...] This is not a blog for the masses directed at any casual passerby. It is more directed at the regulars that... More
  • Have You Ever Cried Over a Video Game…


    But I cry easy.

    I started to watch the movie Restrepo. I say started, because I didn't make it very far. "RESTREPO is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. The movie focuses... More
  • The Toy Box of Topics – Saint’s Weekend Thus Far…


    Hmm...let's see. Black Ops.

    Like many of you (or at least some of you) I had an extremely busy week at work; more so than usual. My week was so busy that I vowed I would do nothing this weekend. Just straight up not do anything productive and just relax. I have a ton of things I... More

  • GIO Member Herding Part 23 of XX...


    GIO Name: eyros2k

    This episode of the Member Herding blog is record setting in that it weighs in at 6 pages. But it's six pages of interesting material and I just couldn't bring myself to cut any of it out. So what I'm going to do is minimize my intro and my... More
  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Gamers…


    The 7 Habits

    In the past I have taken some common, every day books readily available at your local Borders, added a twist of video game flavor to the mix, and come up with a video gamers' compendium. In one instance, I revised a rather iconic publishing to come... More
  • Getting Heard in the Blog Herd…


    Why would I not?

    I'm fascinated by achievements.

    A few days ago I posted a blog that mentioned popular blog topics, one of which was the subject of achievements. There's no doubt about it, "achievements" are a popular topic. I've written a few blogs on the topic myself, including my... More
  • The Boring but Necessary Administrative Update…(Possible GOTY Spoiler)...

    20 3

    From time to time I have to step away from the normal every day blogging about specific topics and address the mundane but necessary task of updating the "admin", especially since this admin is sometimes the genesis for other blogs. I admit... More

    In the end, it was a great time. It really was.

    Tonight was the first (of hopefully many) Frag Fests featuring members of the Game Informer Community. I don't know if anyone was taking notes or keeping I figured I'd post my thoughts on it. First of all, hats off to eyros2k for actually... More
  • Dept of Redundancy Department - Do We Need Multiple Blogs on the Same Subject...


    1. Video Games and Violence

    So...I had a nice long trip home today. There's something about car accidents in the tunnel turning an 18 mile drive into a 2 hour journey. It did give me plenty of time to think about what I was going to blog about tonight. Honestly, my thoughts... More
