What's Happening
  • 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
  • From The Comfort of Your Own Home – Online Presence…


    Just for making a purchase, I get a free hat.

    I did most some of my Christmas shopping today and the wonderful thing about it all, I never even left the house. Due to the power of the Internet and the security of online secure transactions, I was able to browse a number of different websites, select... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 24 of XX


    GIO Name: WS-N    

    Perhaps you've noticed the influx of some new faces around the blogging community. We are continuing to grow and expand. I know I have received a few inquiries about the Member Herding blog, what it is and how to join it. I realized it has been awhile... More
  • Saint’s 300th Blog – Unlocks the “This is Sparta” Achievement…

    32 2

    1. What's my favorite blog?

    *We interrupt the Member Herding Blog scheduled for today for this Public Service Announcement* From time to time I'll notice my blog count, but if you were to ask me what it is on a given day there is a good chance I wouldn't be able to tell... More
  • Outrunning the Irony of Nostalgia – Remembering Classic Video Games…



    During one of the commercials for Survivor tonight, the trailer for the new Tron movie played. I've kind of been ignoring what is essentially Tron rebooted. When I think of Tron, I think of the classic movie from the 80s. Tron is a 1982 American computer... More
  • Funny Facebook Video Game Groups…


    Tonight is a quick and easy blog. Hope you don't mind.

    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
