Britishness

I don't actually know what happened to Maurice Tan, maybe he got trampled to death as gamescom attendees ran for the Battlefield 3 booth, but either way we managed to replace him. Today Daniel Carneiro, Daniel Seto and mysel...
While I am probably on my forth or fifth mini-meltdown this week it appears that nearly all my pre-gamescom prep work is completed and the team is eager to be let loose at one of biggest gaming events in the world....

This episode reaches you in a far more timely manner than we are used to seeing and I proudly present the retun of the full cast for the first time in many, many months.  In episode 12 we ta...
While this may only be the 11th official BritToid podcast, it is actually our one year anniversary and it has definitely been an interesting adventure. When I started working for Destructoid I always said I wanted t...

I have to admit that I am quite the fan of Steel Series and despite him constantly picking on me, I actually enjoy interviewing company CMO Kim Rom.  Huddled in a corner of the E3 show floor Kim runs us through Steel Se...
After numerous technical difficulties and a little trip to E3, I can finally announce that the very long awaited and overdue BritToid episode 10 has finally arrived -- on the eve of the recording of BritToid episode 11 none t...
Nothing quite says the promotion of a horrifically violent videogame quite like spending an afternoon in London sign spinning with two rather cute guys from California.  While Mortal Kombat already knew i...
Ladies and gentelmen as the Royal wedding is upon us here in the glorious Untied Kingdom we decided this was the perfect time to further celebrate our Britishness by bringing you episode 9 of BritToid: Destructoids British ga...
Despite having its delicious British fingers in many pies, it is never far from the truth to say that out of everything Codemasters does, driving games are by far their specialty. From the beginning with their retro...

Look, before we start anything I'm just going to straight up apologize. I got drunk -- in fact I got so drunk I never even managed to get home to be a part of this episode. When I did get home, I thought throwing jelly beans ...
Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to tell you that the full cast of BritToid will be coming together tonight to record episode 6. With Christmas and New Year now out of the way, the European side of gaming news has be...
Well look at us lot! We are back again with our fancy European swagga', minimalistic design and our stylish accents. This time myself (your European Community manager), Daniel Seto (the token Asian), Daniel Carniero (the not ...
Oh yes, it is time again for BritToid, the now European-focused gaming podcast for Destructoid. This week we will be looking at Christmas and lay down our predictions on what we think will dominate sales (and I will be bannin...
Well isn't this long over due? Sorry about that everyone, our bad. However, these last few months have seen plenty going on! DtoidUK became Dtoid Europe after we adopted a Dutch guy. DtoidEurope finally got a HQ as myself and...
Lords and Ladies (and all that falls in-between), we have made it to episode two of BritToid! For anyone who missed the previous post, we are Destructoid's brand new British gaming-focused podcast. This episode sees the re...
Here's the first episode of Season 2 of Sundays with Sagat. If you're new to the series, here's a quick recap; this is a video series where a man named Sagat talks to you about videogames. This is serious business. Sadly, Sa...
This is probably the last video featuring the cheeky Hollie Bennett and shiny-headed Jonathan Holmes that you're going to see, at least for the next twenty minutes. Here we get some time in with Dead Rising 2. In the first v...
We shot a proper interview/hands-on with Hollie and myself playing this new John Daly golf game for the PS Move. I promise we did. For reasons beyond my control, we can't show it to you right now. All we can show you is this...
The eater of men, the venerable Mike Tyson, wasn't on-hand at the British Academy of Film and Television awards show. Just as good -- the BAFTA's media-whoring side step makes the event all the more meaningful, especially to ...
Let's hear it for the UK and their support of videogames! The Daily Telegraph is reporting that more money was spent on videogames in 2009 than on films. In the twelve months to the end of September 2009, a whopping £1....
England seems to have a problem. I'm not talking about dental hygiene (some of them have very lovely teeth!), nor am I referring to whatever it is they try to pass off as "food" and "cuisine" over there. This is something muc...
Here's something you should get used to if you live in the UK -- Square Enix Europe is the publisher of those Tomb Raider games. I know, weird, right?  That's how it's gonna' be, as Square Enix and Eidos Interactive have...
Once again, my Googling skills have failed me -- I couldn't find any screenshots for this week's forgotten game outside of a few screens I borrowed from ACG. You'll have to make do with the Mr. Creosote sketch for now.Monty P...
  As far as Google image search or Wikipedia are concerned, this week's forgotten game doesn't really exist -- at least, legitimate videos or images of its gameplay don't (the above is from the game, certainly, but ...
The Golden Joystick awards have been running now for twenty five years. Hailed as the biggest and most prestigious ceremony in all of gaming, the show rewards the very best that our beloved industry has to offer. Despite all ...
I'll admit it -- I've got a soft spot in my heart for extremely flawed games. The Getaway: Black Monday could never be mistaken for a great game, but hell if I don't enjoy it: for in addition to including a heaping helping of...
In an odd bit of news, good old BlindsideDork sent us a tip from Nintencast, wherein they report that they contacted the BBC regarding the prospective Doctor Who licensed game mentioned first on David Tennant's official site ...
The fight against so-called 'violent' videogames is quickly degenerating into self parody. With the arguments against the games industry becoming evermore flimsy and social clowns like Jack Thompson increasingly despe...
