  • We The People...

    I don't do this very often...so please bear (or is it bare?) with me. We interrupt this normally scheduled blog for a gamer rant. I’ve been around long enough to know there are certain topics you just don’t talk about. Religion. Politics... More
  • Word to Your Mother...

    As you know, or hopefully know…today is Mother’s Day…so as I set out to write a blog, I wanted to keep that in mind and possibly make it the theme…but I quickly realized of all the character types we have witnessed in our video... More
  • Everybody Loves Surprises...

    More

    A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about how I didn’t like scary games…surprisingly, I wasn’t alone as a number of the replies indicated a similar attitude. Today I’m going to blog about surprises. I love surprises. And by surprises... More
  • When Bad Really Means Bad...

    More

    I was at Best Buy tonight…not really looking for anything in particular but scanning the racks of PC games to see if something might have snuck under the RADAR. You can usually tell which games are good (or not) by the price. A sub $20 game is... More
  • The Great Platform Debate...

    9

     

    More
    I always love the blogs or forum threads that debate the superior platform. They tend to start off unbiased and you think you’re going to read an impartial piece, but by the midway point the praise (or criticisms) of one platform start coming out... More
  • Writers Block...

    More
    I’ve been out of town on a business trip since Sunday and tonight of all nights I’m having a bit of writers block. Argh. I miss my family of course…and not having video games to unwind and de-stress is also taking a toll. I get a message... More
  • May the Fourth Be With You...

    More
    Statistics would suggest that if you are a gamer that frequents GIO, then you know what Star Wars is; and if you have heard of and know what Star Wars is, then there is nearly an equally good chance that you know that May 4th is the unofficial Star Wars... More
  • I'm Your Huckleberry...

    More

    I'm going to be a little honest. In the race for "most popular", games keep adding gizmos and gadgets to separate them from their competitor's products, and I gotta say, I'm getting a little tired of all the flair. From heart beat... More
  • Reality vs. Virtual Reality...

    15

    I spent most of the day either in an airport or on board a plane...and I have to tell you, I'm not really big on the whole air travel experience (I hate flying). It did give me time to reflect on this most unusual phenomenon that perhaps you have experienced yourself regarding video games (what else of course) and how they affect your perception of your surroundings. Maybe this just happens to me.

  • Choking on All the New Games...

    17

    I don't think I get grumpy very often...especially on a Saturday night when I'm moments away from a little Team Fortress 2 action (what can I say, I need a little mindless combat tonight, so TF2 gets the nod) but tonight I'm a little grumpy.

    (Yeah...I changed the title and some of the pictures...I didn't like it...I might just delete the whole thing. Argh.) I went to hell again last night (apparently it took me a little over 7 hours to get through it)…and yet less than 24 hours... More
  • Boy Scouts are Campers...

    More

    I heard this story on the news this morning, and perhaps you did too...about how the Boy Scouts have a new badge for playing video games (I'm serious ). Depending on where you read the story, it's all kinds of biased...For one, it's not the... More
