  • Do I deserve to be considered a "hardcore" gamer?

    As the title says above, I suddenly began to question my status as gamer. It happened suddenly last night. I was playing Sonic CD when the thought came into my mind. This caused me to stop playing and take a look back on my gaming carrer as a whole. I've... More
  • The Pros and Cons of each console

    Recently on GIO, I have seen a lot of discussions of which console is best, which one they play most, etc. I have all three consoles, I have played each one a lot. I spend most of my time on my X360, and I play all my cross platform games on my 360. I... More
  • Innovation vs. Refinement: When Should Video Games Apply Them?

    This console generation has seen some of the best games ever to come out. The quality is continuously much better than in years past in my opinion. Developers have been adding more and more content as time goes by and games get more complex. Developers... More
  • TOGNick has issues: Issue 3

    The original issue 3 was a nasty hate filled rant, and I apologize for that, this one will be better much better...for now hope though. You see, I'm a pizza delivery expert, although I don't work for Dominoes who claim to be the "experts"... More
  • Xbox 360: Driving Circles Around the Competition

    Since December of last year (2009), I've owned all three current generation consoles. In early 2007, I bought a Nintendo Wii. Why? Because I was intrigued by the new technology and I was psyched about the Virtual Console (I've utilized it too... More
  • GIO Member Herding Part 22 of XX

    After a week hiatus to eat turkey and celebrate Thanksgiving, the Member Herding blog makes its triumphant return. Once again, I had to resort to Plan B. Plan B consists of a systematic approach using complex formulas and algorithms to analyze a series... More
  • Assassins Creed: Brotherhood AKA Ridiculous story inc.

    Don't worry, I'm not going to criticize AC for having a crazy story. It's basically the video game version of Lost. Both jump around in time, both are crazy, both insist on killing off my favorite characters. Oh yeah, there might be SPOILERS... More
  • [Update] No Phil, I'M the world's greatest detective.

    Congrats. If you caught that joke, you're a Gameinformer nerd like me. If you didn't, it's a joke Phil Kollar made in Gameiformer's Batman: Arkham City podcast. Anyways, this story doesn't have much to do with Batman, but an equally... More
  • A New Hope? Not. Or Not Exactly?

    Well, as most have probably figured out by now, those rumors regarding the grand unveiling of alien corpses from Area 51 NASA's "big announcement" about a new scientific discovery have little to do with solutions to the big questions regarding... More
  • The Tyranny of Father Time

    With the holidays in full gear, my video game and film collections are likely to grow. As is my desperation at keeping up with them. If there was a trophy or achievement for futility, it would have my gamertag written all over it. I recently picked up... More
  • 15 Authors - a Different Take

    This is another one of those Facebook memes that's going around (they seemed to take a powder for a little while, or at least nobody deigned to include me). When I was tagged in this meme, I said to myself "Self," (because I always address... More
  • 3 Steps For Nintendo's Wii to Have Any Chance of Survival

    It is no secret that most gamers look at the Nintendo Wii as somewhat of a joke these days. Sure, they may produce some great first party games but that is pretty much all they do. The system lacks the heart and soul that Microsoft and Sony's have... More
