  • Do You Have the Time...

    I don’t know what the first game I played that started keeping track of how much time I’ve invested (or wasted, depending on your point of view) in the game, but it seems like it’s becoming a more common feature for a game to keep a... More
  • Can You See Me Now…

    Stick with me for just a moment as I make a somewhat bumpy transition from what inspired this blog until I actually get to the topic of the blog. Here goes. You can thank the GIO website for the inspiration behind this blog. I noticed the review titled... More
  • He Shoots, He Scores (Or Chokes)…

    For whatever reason that I really don't completely comprehend, I enjoy understanding or at least trying to understand the mechanics behind the inspiration, influence and impact video games have on those who call themselves gamers. I'm not a doctor... More
  • (Dual) Wielding the Power…

    Whether you call it dual wielding or the fancier and more mystical sounding term “akimbo” the fact of the matter is, this not very practical but oh so cool and fun combat technique is always a hit with me. As somewhat of an avid gun enthusiast... More

    …we interrupt this normally scheduled blog to bring you this public service announcement. It’s true. I had a totally different blog planned for today. I don’t know that it would have been a “Blog Herding” caliber blog, but... More

    “Learn as much by writing as by reading.” ~Lord Acton In one of my earliest blogs here at GIO, I published a piece titled "A Novel Idea" that discussed my interest in fiction inspired by video games. It's certainly an area that... More

    While this blog will largely revolve around everyone’s favorite genre of video game (I’m only kidding, settle down) which is of course the First Person Shooter (FPS) it certainly isn’t an issue exclusive to this style of game. It’s... More
  • Survivor Instincts...

    More

    I’m sitting here watching the final episode of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of the series, but it is one of the few shows that I watch regularly. The component I like most about the game is also the component... More
  • Remembering a Classic...

    More

    Every now and then I remember a particularly special game from the past that was revolutionary at the moment, but over time its popularity declined until it was eventually forgotten. Most gamers probably have never even heard of the game I’m about... More

    More
    I usually shy away from blogging about news related stories. There are far too many game sites and bloggers that cover this subject matter, and I’m sure they are more proficient at it than I am. But I came across a story that I haven’t seen... More

    A History lesson, if you will…but hopefully if History wasn’t your favorite subject in school, you’ll at least stay entertained with this blog long enough to survive the extent of my rambling. No matter how long you have been a “gamer”... More

    Sometimes I never truly understand the inspiration for my blogs or at least the topics that I blog about. There are times when it is obvious – like when there is breaking news or when I talk about a particular game – but sometimes I get a... More
