The Only One: Why it's Hard to be Old School in a Time Like This.
on Jul 28, 2011 at 09:58 AM
A few months ago, I was trying to explain to one of my non-gamer friends what Punch-Out!! was and why it's so awesome. A few minutes in I realized "She's not getting any of this", which is discouraging. I understand that gaming does...
Starcraft 2: The Perfect E-sport
on Jul 28, 2011 at 09:39 AM
No, that is not hyperbole, and no I am not kidding. I am completely serious when I say that Starcraft 2 is the perfect Esport. Now hear me out before taking your pitchforks and torches to the comments. I know everyone has their personal preference but...
The Gamer's Block, and How I Plan to Cure it
The One and Only Happyginger
on Jul 28, 2011 at 09:27 AM
After my last blog, one that was rather poorly recived, I havent really been posting anything. Really, I've kind of felt a little isolated within the GIO community, mainly due to the fact that I have lost any incentive to play video games.No it wasn't...
Nintendo Isn't Going To Be Who You Want Them To Be... (And That's Fine)
on Jul 28, 2011 at 08:50 AM
I was listening to Destructoid.com's podcast, Podtoid, last week and they were discussing the buisiness decisions by Nintendo, including the recent 3DS online store support (which, apparently, wasn't up to some people's snuff.) They gave an...
Coolest masks and helmets
on Jul 28, 2011 at 04:49 AM
For some reason I have a fascination with cool masks and helmets, so I thought it would be good topic to blog about. Anyone, post the coolest masks or helmets you can think of. Here is my list: -Firstly Ergo Proxy/Vincent's mask from the anime Ergo...
This is SO Stupid!
on Jul 27, 2011 at 10:17 PM
I've found that when anything small thing annoys me, I rant about it. A lot. Video games are no exception to this rule. However, I've got no one to rant about this to now so I figured I would post this on my blog. There has been one thing lately...
An Unraveled Mind
on Jul 27, 2011 at 09:27 PM
It seems like only last year that I was writing another one of these blogs here on GIO. One of those personal blogs, however I'm fairly certain this has to get out one way or the other. Things in my head aren't always so easy to figure out, and...
A System for a Genre Part 2
on Jul 27, 2011 at 08:56 PM
Hey all. I'm back with another part of a system for a genre. Time to get started! Racing System: PS3 Why: I chose the PS3 for racing because they get the best of both worlds. Xbox 360 only has a good serious racer (Forza Motorsport series) while the...
My Favorite Games of All Time, In No Particular Order
on Jul 27, 2011 at 08:45 PM
Video games are a medium unlike any other. Now that I've got the obligatory "say something that is only vaguely relating to the post" out of the way, here are my favorites. Oh, and in case my constant warnings aren't enough, SPOILERS...
5 Practical Game Mechanics That Should Be Standard In All Handheld Games
Oni no Tenshi
on Jul 27, 2011 at 08:35 PM
When it comes to game frustrations, we all have them. But when it comes to shoddy gameplay mechanics or outright lazy/outdated storytelling, there is quite a lot of room for improvement. This is especially true when it comes to handheld games. Many games...

Battlefield vs. Call of Duty
on Jul 27, 2011 at 05:24 PM
Yesterday I posted a blog mainly about paying $15 for map packs, but at the end I went off on a tangent and started talking about Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3. I said I was personaly on the Modern Warfare side. I got some great feedback about the...
