  • There Are Two Kinds of Gamers…

    21

    It's the little details.

    More
    I know I've mentioned this a time or two before, but long before the days of my video game blogging I used to post a non-video game related blog at a few other websites. And kind of like my weekly Member Herding blog at Game Informer Online, I used... More
  • Video Games and Getting Your Money’s Worth…

    16

    So, a month or so ago I wrote a blog that suggested the worth of a game could be computed by the amount of time spent playing said game. For example, one such game that I've logged a ton of hours on is Team Fortress 2 (approaching 1,000 hours). I have definitely gotten every penny out of the

    I flew a plane.

    It's late. I'm tired. And I just got home. Hopefully a more normal blog will return tomorrow. Earlier today I experienced a pair of activities that were spectacular. Honestly though, no matter how wonderful they were, chances are I won't be... More
  • From Flight Sims to Real Life…

    5

    But I still hate to fly in real life. Or so I thought.

    More
    Busy day tomorrow. I should be in bed or getting ready for bed, yet here I sit hammering out my 200 th blog. A milestone achievement indeed. This is going to be short and sweet as I either go play some Mass Effect, or I fall asleep with this computer... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 12 of 12

    20

    GIO Name: Saint

    More
    The 12 th and final episode of Member Herding. The dirty dozen. You all should know how it's come down to me interviewing myself...it certainly wasn't my idea, so if you want someone to blame, blame EuphoricEnnui. All jokes aside, it really was... More
  • Modern Day Fallout and other Ramblings…

    19

    So what does this have to do with video gaming? Nothing.

    More
    So, the blog I had planned today was pushed to the side. It was requiring more effort then what I had left in me, especially after a long brutal day at work and the ensuing phone calls after I got home from work requiring my attention. But I don't... More
  • Game Informer After Hours…

    4

    PAUSE.

    More
    A day or so ago I posted a satirical blog about if I were the Editor-In-Chief of Game Informer what would I do...it was a fun piece to write because everybody was fair game and who doesn't like to imagine what you could do with unlimited power...... More
  • *UPDATED* A Novel Idea – Video Game Inspired Books…

    11

    So, yesterday I went to Barnes and Noble.

    More
    The third blog I ever posted here at Game Informer was titled "A Novel Idea". It was one of those blogs that I liked but wasn't all that popular, largely due to the fact that it didn't make the front page of the user created blogs. I've... More
  • If I Were Game Informer's Editor-in-Chief For the Day...

    8 2

    More

    DISCLAIMER: There's always one. There's always "that guy" who will read this out of context and either think I'm being serious about judging Game Informer (which I'm not) and will respond with fire and brimstone, banishing me... More
  • Diary of a Mad Gamer...

    More
    We've seen Diary of a Mad Man and Diary of a Mad Black Woman...and now we have...Diary of a Mad Gamer. I'm not one to keep a diary in real life, but I thought it might make a good blog topic for today's blog. Dear Diary... (Don't worry... More
  • Virgin Gaming: When Advertising Pays Off…

    5

     

    More
    Perhaps you’ve notice the big red banners streaming across the pages of Game Informer Online lately that are advertising Virgin Gaming. The red definitely pops and gets your attention, huh? I think so anyway. There was one day there where the blog... More

    This week’s Member Herding adopted a unique approach to selecting the person to be spotlighted. A simple task really – answer a question posted in my GIO profile status. While everyone that was interested in participating in this technically... More
