    There seems to be some discussions lately, both in the forums and in a few blogs, about achievements. While most seem to be negative and relate to farming or boosting or whatever you want to call it, this blog is not. I've blogged about achievements before. I love achievements. I love games that have achievements. And I love game developers like Valve that provide an easy method (Steam) similar to the consoles to track achievements.

    As a follow up to yesterday's blog that discussed the circumstances that seem to inspire my various blog topics, a few things have happened today to inspire what I'm about to blog about. First, I was thinking about the blog from a few days ago that discussed "Six Days in Fallujah" - the game that is nearly completed but having a difficult time finding a publisher due to protests and complaints surrounding the content. Then there was the news story about a domestic terrorist group within the United States that has threatened the "removal" of 30 governors. Followed by another blog I was working on that mentioned the controversial Modern Warfare 2 airport scene, where you basically play as a member of a terrorist group that carries out an assault against innocent civilians and subsequently the responding security force, the good guys. I guess the final push was drafting a question to a Community Leader for a major game developer that discussed violence in video games...

    For whatever reason (or mental order), I blog or try and blog daily. While it hasn't always been about video games (when I was deployed to Iraq, for example, it was about life in Iraq), that seems to be where my attention is focused lately (although I post an occasional blog on my FB/MS page). I'm currently on 50+ consecutive days of blogs here at GIO. It's been mostly positive, but there has been the occasional blog or two where my opinion was in the minority and I was subsequently raked over the coals by the rioting mob (that might be a slight exaggeration).

  • The Quest for Originality...

    I am always enamoured with games that venture out into the unknown, forge new paths and blaze new trails. Developers that produce games that introduce an original character, concept or course. These games are becoming more scarce as proven and successful titles breed sequel after sequel - did you know Call of Duty 7 (yes - Seven) is under development. Amazing.

    I am currently reading Gears of War: Jacinto's Remnant. So far it's every bit as good as Gears of War: Aspho Fields, which I thought was fantastic and had some very moving chapters. I've played through both games and after reading the books, you really know and appreciate the characters so much more.
