  • Reviewing the Reviewers of the Reviews…

    22 1

    I wonder what the going rate for a 7.75 is?

    It's the little things in life that cause me amusement. Watching Planet's Funniest Animal videos and seeing a sleeping cat roll into an aquarium; pulling on a door to open it and then noticing the push sign; seeing someone fail their field sobriety... More

    I've read his review. I've read it several times actually...

    DISCLAIMER: While I am active duty, have made a trip to the sandbox and have seen and worked with some special forces units before, I am in no way, shape or form speaking on behalf of the military, especially those who do this in real life. I'm one... More
  • The Life of an Addicted Gamer...


    I choose to play because I want to...not because I need to.

    To those handful of you who recognized I've been missing in action the past week, thanks for your thoughts, prayers and concern. Hopefully after reading this somewhat of a philosophical blog, you'll have a better understanding of what led to my... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 19 of XX


    Welcome to the herd.

    The Member Herding blogs are some of my favorite blogs to publish. They tend to be fun and light hearted; and they're an opportunity to get to know members in the GIO community. I have to be honest, I wasn't really in the "fun and light hearted"... More
  • KISS – Keep it Simple, Stupid. Why I’m in Love with Medal of Honor.


    There shouldn't be any spoilers...I hope. LOL.

    There shouldn't be any spoilers...I hope. LOL. A few blogs ago, I mentioned that I thought the Game of the Year was going to come down between a slug fest between Medal of Honor and Call of Duty: Black Ops. Well, Medal of Honor is on the street and... More
  • Socially (Un) Acceptable – Virtual Relationships Meet the Real World…


    "Oh! xinsaneox...I've played with you online!"

    If you play video games online, then there is a good chance you've established online relationships with fellow gamers that you enjoy playing with (or against). While this behavior might've once been seen as peculiar and mark you as a total geek... More

  • Home Sweet Home...


    The answer is of course...Master Chief and Thor.

    Finally home from Ohio after one of the most awesome'est video gaming experiences ever. I've been a gamer 25+ years...been to a lot of events and midnight releases...have logged some serious hours online spent in mortal combat with my fellow video... More
  • Game Over…Dust Is Still Settling…



    I have a pounding headache...just got back to the hotel room with my kids and their 2 teammates. One teammate from New York and one from Kentucky. I have to drop one of them off at Oh Dark Thirty...and the other one later in the morning. The final standings... More
  • Gaming with the famous Zophar321 and JoustPong…


    Who is this Zophar321?

    So, my family and I made the 9 hour trek from Virginia to Ohio late last night / early this morning. For my wife and me it's more of a road trip and mini-vacation...but for my son and's an opportunity to hook up with fellow gamers... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 18 of XX


    GIO Name: bjdbuch

    Since I started asking trivia questions as the method to get selected for the Member Herding blog, I don't know that I've ever had anyone answer as fast as this week's candidate. I thought it was kind of a harder question since it was based... More

    On which system?

    It's been awhile since I've done a "Two Kinds of Gamers" blog...but I was having a discussion with a fellow gamer about a particular subject and I realized that... There are two kinds of gamers. Those who can tell you what their favorite... More
