  • Facebook Games Actually Worth Playing

    31 3
    For this month’s issue I did a one page article discussing the games of Facebook. It was the first feature I wrote for Connect, and in that sense, I enjoyed it. What I didn’t enjoy as much though, was the never-ending string of crappy games... More

    48 4

    Since its release, the Wii has popped up in nursing homes across the country. That's all well and good, but disaster strikes whenever the elderly attempt playing a game with controls more complex than "hey, swing this thing grandpa."

  • "What do we want? Brains!" Zombie Pub Crawl 2009

    7 3
    This weekend was the first time I had ever been part of a themed pub crawl. Our group met up at my apartment early afternoon. My bathroom was packed with zombies applying makeup and blood effects. The rest of us hung out in the living room and played... More
  • Valkyria Chronicles Is Awesome And You Should Play It

    29 3
    I reviewed Valkyria Chronicles when it came out in November 2008. I gave it a score of 8.5 (which I consider a very good score), but there was a problem: In a crowded holiday season full of games like Fable II, Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet, Fallout 3... More
  • This Week in Comics: Astonishing X-Men #31

    I feel like Warren Ellis is hitting his stride in his writing of the mighty Marvel mutants, and his quality and action-packed storytelling is on display in Astonishing X-Men #31, my pick of the comic pile I hauled back from the comic store this Wednesday... More
  • Turbo: Karate Kid Meets Tron

    This short film first blipped onto my radar a year ago when one of my girlfriends posted some stills from the set to her Flickr account. Curious about the project, there wasn't much information available at the time. Turbo first originated as a thesis... More

    If you just checked out Episode 2 of The Game Informer Show , I mentioned that I would post up the old video from two and a half years ago where Jeff Cork and myself made up games to play in the first Crackdown. Among the fun games we posted like Kick... More
  • Things I Want: Entry #2

    25 7
    The premise is simple. When brainstorming blog ideas for GI Online, I started thinking about all the cool stuff I have on my desk. Then my mind wondered to all the cool stuff I would like to have on my desk. Then I made the leap to assuming that if I... More
  • 16-Bit Domination! (On A Global Scale)

    5 1
    17 years is a long time. In the video game world, it's an eternity. Yet it was exactly that long ago when I got my first taste of a real-time strategy game that was, at least in its time and in my very humble opinion, without fault. How sobering hindsight... More
  • Paul Would Have Loved this Site

    One of our long-time forum members and subscriber, AngelGamer, wrote up a piece in memory of our lost friend Paul Anderson (that features lots of classic Game Informer images from the old days too). For those that didn't know him, he was one of the... More
