    While mulling over potential blog ideas and exploring the depths of Wikipedia I eventually happened upon a title from my distant past. I'm almost encouraged to make Friday a tribute to classic games from the past and call it Flashback Friday but I... More

    I normally stray away from trending topics in the news because most people that see a blog with a popular theme may choose to just skip over it. But today I am going to talk about the news that seems to have captured the attention of a number of media... More

    As a submariner, I used to think military games didn’t have enough submarines in them. So, like any wannabe modder would do, I set out to create a mod that had a submarine in it. I quickly learned it wasn’t nearly as easy as I thought and... More

    There are gamers who have large collections of video games and they are able to play many of them simultaneously. No silly, I don't mean simultanesouly as in at the same time, but they are able to play whatever game they feel like at the moment. Some days they might play "Game A" and the next day they play "Game B". Sometimes, they'll even play "Game C" which could be several years old.

    In my experience there are two kinds of gamers, at least in the sense of what I'm about to discuss. And unfortunately, I think I am in the minority group, which is potentially troubling because the last time I published a blog and said I was in the... More

    Hopefully my title with intentional errors didn't scare any potential readers away. Okay, so...I don't consider 37 THAT old...but chances are I'm slightly older than most of the people that might stop by and read this blog. Just from the few... More

    As a follow up to a blog titled “Originality is Dead. So, Who Cares…” that I published here at GIO yesterday, I continue the dialogue with a discussion why (in my opinion) the originality debate is irrelevant to the overall merit and... More

    There is a persistent theme surrounding the topic of originality that repeats itself among those who publish their works online. The subject matter is addressed by professional journalists, free lance writers or independent bloggers like me. A reader... More

    To boldly go where no man has gone before. When you think of a pioneer, you may think of a colorful character fresh from the pages of our history books. Perhaps someone like Daniel Boone or Lewis and Clark (for those of us in the USA). Or perhaps someone... More

    Okay...maybe that title is a cheap shot. Comparing faulty motor vehicles resulting in accidents and loss of life to a glitch in an online video game system probably isn't very fair. My apologies. Still though, people are pretty angry with both companies... More
