  • The Essentials Challenge: Greene Panda - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

    This is it, ladies and gentleman; the final Essentials completion of the year!  It's been a long, crazy, hectic time for all of us completing our chosen games.  This last one proves to be a great one indeed.  Greene Panda chose Majora's Mask, and played through the 3DS Remake.  Majora's Mask is a rather odd entry into the Zelda series, and it occupies a special place in the hearts of countless Zelda fans.  Greene Panda dons the mask and fills us in!

  • The Essentials Challenge: The PN3 - Metal Gear Solid

    1

    Our final day of 2017, and there are only a few participants left to interview!  As a special treat, this entry focuses on one of the most influential Essentials on our list: Metal Gear Solid!  The tactical espionage action game that revolutionized how story-telling and stealth action are approached in video games had an impact that is still felt to this day, and not just in video game pop culture.  The PN3 tackled the original PS1 version (bless the soul, how it has aged), and here's what he had to say about that:

  • The Essentials Challenge: Rezident Hazard - The Grim Fandango

    Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, Merry Toyotathon, etc.! We're back before the end of the year, and so is a long-lost member of the GIO community; Rezident Hazard! My friend and cohort in many an online caper, Rez returns to tell us about his time with one of the big names of the "point and click" genre of games that has come and gone through the years.  Grim Fandango was one of Double Fine's earliest and best attempts to bring genuinely funny dialogue and story to the world of video games, and the general consensus is that they succeeded wholeheartedly in that endeavor.  What did Rez think?  Well, keep reading and you'll find out!

  • The Essentials Challenge: The Fool Arcana - Red Dead Redemption

    2

    It was mostly due to procrastination on my part.  I started Red Dead Redemption when it first released, but for whatever reason I stopped playing it shortly after my first play session.  I can’t even remember what game caused me to put it aside, but before I knew it months and years had passed by.  I always meant to finish it, but kept putting it off.  What made it worse for me was having to avoid all the talk and GI pieces about it since I was actively trying to avoid spoilers which wasn’t easy since it’s pretty highly regarded.  Once I saw your Essentials challenge earlier in the year, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to fix this glaring omission on my backlog.

SHOWTIME!

    Hey hey, party people!  It's been a long time, but we're finally back with another Essentials completion.  This time, the completer is none other than yours truly.  Yes, I finally bought and finished The Last of Us this month, and I've got plenty to say.  For this interview, I've recruited the ever venerable TDL (The Darkest Link) to conduct the interview.  I thought about interviewing myself, but decided to involve another person, since this is a community endeavor.  Besides, what kind of freak interviews themselves?

  • The Essentials Challenge: Starter Pack - Portal 2

    4

    Genuinely. I've always fancied myself with some mind games and puzzles. Reason why I love classic Sierra games. Apart from me frustrating going through the puzzles and the new gel physics, I had fun through the game, with GLaDOS' character and Wheatley's dimwitted remarks. Even though they were the only characters you get in contact with (if you don't count the insane cores), I thought they had a lot of character and genuinely loved GLaDOS' empathetic personality, she called Caroline.
