What's Happening
  • GIO Member Herding Part 08 of XX…



    This is somewhat of a unique edition of the weekly Member Herding blog. The person nominated (actually there were two nominated, but the one I attempted to contact) never responded. In all fairness, I waited until the 11 th hour before I finally implemented... More
  • (Video Game) Character Spotting…Can You Name Them All?

    28 1


    Sometimes it’s hard to determine where the inspiration for a blog comes from. While I’d like to think the ideas just naturally form in my mind because I’m a creative genius, that’s probably not the case. It’s more likely... More
  • Eavesdrop on My Video Game Activity…



    Greetings carbon based bi-peds…I’ll be honest up front. I’m kind of all over the board on tonight’s blog. If you want to peer into the window of my simple life (some might say dull, but I’m perfectly content with it) and... More
  • Let the Zerg Rush Begin…



    In what is being hailed as one of the most significant events for PC gamers across the globe, tomorrow (or tonight at midnight) marks the official launch of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. Fans of the series have waited years for a sequel to a game that... More
  • Not in Limbo Over Playing Limbo…



    It might not seem like it, but I really do play other games besides Team Fortress 2. Sometimes it might be something as simple as an Xbox Live Arcade game and sometimes it might be a newly released PC demo. Sometimes I get hooked on a game and play it... More
  • Valve Swarming With Success…



    What started out as a blog about Valve’s recently released gift to the gaming community known as Alien Swarm has now morphed into a blog about how Valve is arguably the finest game developer in the industry. Certainly this is my opinion and others... More
  • Old Coke vs. New Coke: The Forum Taste Test...

    15 2


    I really wanted to steer clear of the great "old forum vs. new forum” debate and the ongoing argument that seems to have ensued between the old timers and new members, but given that it has boiled over into the blogging section of the website... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 07 of XX…


    (Note: Apparently there is a page or image limit and I surpassed, this is the edited version...I guess that is something I will have to watch for in the future.)

    If there is one benefit of publishing the GIO member herding blog, it’s that I have the opportunity to meet and become somewhat familiar with remarkable members of the community that I might not have otherwise crossed paths with. I think this is... More
  • I Hate Everything About You...



    Does anyone even remember that song or Ugly Kid Joe? Am I that old? Anyway... I'm not a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist or any other kind of 'ist...I did take a Social Deviance class in college and thought a lot of the fundamentals and principles... More
  • When Video Game Characters Retire...



    There was a piece written a week or so ago that discussed the merits of retiring ongoing video game series that have run their course; games that experienced fame and fortune but have been on the decline in the latest iterations of the series. It made... More
  • Game Informer Magazine Ranked 11th...

    10 1


    I received my latest edition of Game Informer in the mail yesterday. Before I dive into the blog, let me provide a brief historical synopsis of my magazine reading credentials. As a gamer with 25+ years of gaming, I've read my fair share of game related... More
  • Fresh Coat of Paint…



    Some of my regular readers know that in the weekly Member Herding blog, I ask random questions to the person being interviewed. Sometimes...many times...I ask the questions I do because it's something I'm thinking about myself, like this particular... More
