    Eating crow is an English-language idiom meaning humiliation by admitting wrongness or having been proved wrong after taking a strong position. Eating crow is presumably foul-tasting in the same way that being proved wrong might be emotionally hard to... More

    Perhaps my shortest blog ever…but it’s late. I’m tired. And my Windows 7 install jacked up my dual boot setup, so now I can’t play any games until I get it straightened out. We’ve all seen, heard and read the volumes of... More

    Well, it’s Friday and as I look at some of my notes and scribble scrabble for potential blog ideas, they all seem a bit serious or at the very least, idealistic. Not quite the mood I was going for. So, as I often do when I find myself in these situations…I’m... More

    A few comments before I jump over to the actual “member herding” part of the blog. This is only the third member herding blog and I’m already a bit surprised, make that pleasantly surprised with the reception the series is receiving... More

    I’m trying to put the finishing touches on the next episode of the GIO Member Herding blog with the expectation it will be ready on Thursday or Friday, but in the meantime I have to hammer something out for tonight’s blog. I want it to be... More
  • Where Everybody Knows Your Name…

    I was thinking about the blog that Hist published yesterday regarding playing cooperative games online with friends and/or strangers. So I guess you could say his blog was the inspiration for this one. Technically, it’s part of a bigger issue that... More

    One of the things that sucks about getting old is you don’t always recognize it’s happening. And I’ve found this is especially true with gamers. Perhaps it’s the fact that since we traditionally associate video games with being... More

    To all the Dads out there, Happy Fathers Day! Granted, by the time you read this, Father’s Day will be over or nearly over, so hopefully you had a great one. Mine was okay; I did everything I wanted to – nothing! Actually, my son said I could... More

    I love how the video game industry steals regular old words and transforms them into these flashy design concepts that adopt a whole new meaning. Before you know it, these buzzwords spring up everywhere as each new game tries to capitalize off of the... More

    I follow a lot of the video game industry news, whether it’s on websites like this, places like Google where you can get a summary of headlines and trendy topics, or sometimes straight from the source by following key people on Twitter or other... More

    Last week I reluctantly introduced the idea of a periodic blog series titled “GIO Member Herding” which would spotlight a member of the GIO community with a few off the wall questions. I’m happy to report that the feedback was overwhelmingly... More

    After picking through the E3 rubble the past few days for blog topics, I’m going to revert back to a topic I’ve had on my list of blog topics for awhile now. If you listened to the press releases, you might agree the barrage of first person... More
