  • Community Writing Challenge: Summer Gaming Vacation

    Summer. It's a time of frivolity. A time of midnight bonfires, vacations, friends, and fun. If you're an adult however, it's usually filled with work, outdoor projects, indoor projects, and sleep. If we are lucky, we can get some gaming in... More
  • The Arbitrariness of Gaming

    Hello, good people of GIO! This is an introduction to a series about an aspect of gaming that has become increasingly clear to me from my study of philosophy. It is no secret that gamers love talking about video games. Just from this website, it is clear... More
  • Venting About The Evil Within DLC

    I finally decided to revisit The Evil Within, now that all the content is released (and it was on sale recently). Right off the bat, the game tries to be an ass hole and says the disc can't be read. Can't be read. Oh, there it is... So here goes... More
  • August Game Challenge: Week One (I Get Knocked Down, But I Get Up Again...)

  • The Marriage Game.

    Long time no speak Game Informer Community! It's been far too long since my last blog post, so I decided to try to spark up some conversation here tonight! You know how you hear that everything changes when you get married? I've heard that's... More
  • HyperDimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed Review: A Different Kind of Console War

    If there's one thing I've learned through years of watching anime, it's that the Japanese will turn anything into anime girls. Strike Witches thematically turned military planes into anime girls, Upotei literally turned assault rifles into... More
  • 52/52 Week 31- Top Ten Super Mario Galaxy Galaxies

    It's time for the triumphant return of the 52/52! I have been gone for the past week, and without a doubt, it was one of the most exhausting weeks of my life. That's why this blog is up late, and I do apologize, but I was just too tired to finish... More

    Female gamers are everywhere. They are playing hardcore games on Xbox and PC. They are on their PS4s and Wii Us. They are in the arcades, and playing casual games on mobile phones. They are commenters and blog writers on our boards. They are US! Late... More
