  • GIO Member Herding Part 26 of XX...


    GIO Name: Koob24

    The selection process for this week's edition of the Member Herding blog was simple enough - the first person who is already part of the herd that messaged me with a nomination would get the go ahead. It only took a day or two before someone was nominated... More
  • Quit Doing That or You’ll Go Blind…


    Oh well...lots of things in life aren't good for us I guess.

    While I was at work today I saw Nintendo's new 3DS making the front page news, and no, not at Game Informer. Some of us aren't lucky enough to get that kind of access at work (Dean, I'm looking at you and that Robot in the Corner, LOL)...which... More
  • All Work and No Play: Working in the Video Game Industry…


    Something to consider...

    Something to consider... But first...a DISCLAIMER : Don't read too much into this blog. I'm not suggesting some jobs are necessarily easier or harder than others and am not making light of what anyone does for a living. This is just my thoughts... More
  • Does Anyone Actually Watch G4…


    Wife: "Honey...what are you watching?"

    First I'd like to open with a, "I hope this isn't a taboo subject" because as far as I know...G4 and Gamestop (and by associate Game Informer) are not in any kind of partnership so this could be a bit of an objectionable blog since they... More
  • It’s A Trap…


    First up...

    I'm trying to be witty tonight by using the title of the new Family Guy movie that spoofs Return of the Jedi as my blog title, not just because this is the iconic catch phrase used by Admiral Ackbar in the original third installment of the Star Wars... More
  • Merry Christmas…



    It took me a long time to get into the festive mood this year. I'm not quite sure why. Don't know if it was because of a busy work schedule, the economy like it is or maybe I'm just getting old and turning into Ebenezer Scrooge...but between... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 25 of XX...


    Last Game Completed: Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

    Just in time for the holidays and after a day or two struggling with the commenting issue, I'm here with this week's newest edition to the Member Herd. So, Merry Christmas and enjoy this treat as well as all of your other gifts. Good tidings.... More
  • HTTP 404 (Your Reply) Not Found…


    *EDIT* For those that are asking because apparently they haven't been affected...not all the comments are showing up. I'm getting about 50-50 when I post a comment.

    So...I'm assuming most of you have noticed Game Informer appears to be having some issues, which is to be expected right before the holidays when everyone is on vacation and there is minimal staffing around to tackle such big challenges as - your... More
  • Wanted: Bloggers. Inquire Within…


    First of all...I've noticed there is a Writer's Guild group.

    This is directed at the bloggers although anyone is certainly encouraged to read and respond... a week or so ago I posted this sappy blog about uniting the GIO community and how the bloggers should be at the forefront of this initiative. It's... More
  • I QUIT...


    But this one better describes my experience...

    Quitting. Quitting is not something that comes easily for me. It ranks right up there with failing. I hate to fail and I hate to quit. To me, both are a form of defeat. I would rather fight the good fight until the end. I would rather go down trying to... More
  • A Different Perspective on Achievements – The Fail Achievement…


    In this blog, I'm going to revisit a previous blog about achievements...but this time from a different perspective.

    In this blog, I'm going to revisit a previous blog about achievements...but this time from a different perspective. I realize using the term fail achievement can be seen as an oxymoron because in essence the two words mean the opposite, but for the... More
  • Merry Christmas – the GIO Virtual Gift Exchange…

    29 1

    Perhaps your company or office hosted a similar office party...

    From time to time I'll have the inspiration for a blog and then wonder how it is going to be received. Nobody wants to post a blog that sucks, certainly not me. So, this is one that I think is kind of iffy but I've elected to post it anyway. If... More
