This is how they game in Afghanistan

Photojournalist Iason Athanasiadis has documented something amazing. It's an arcade in Kabul, Afganhistan, and for the kids and young adults who go there to play it's one of their only escapes. Most of the children who show u...

Take a photo tour of Blizzard's awesome offices

Even though Jonathan visited Blizzard HQ twice over the summer and brought back a few photos, Blizzard has always been a rather secretive company. In an industry full of leaks and rumors, Blizzard keeps most of its info and i...

Rockin' with Sony & some bands at Virgin Mobile FreeFest

Check out Made of Myth, wish you could read French

Kotaku posted about a new French gaming magazine called Amusement a few days ago that caught my eye and today they got some very cool images from one of the mag's stories. I'm going two ways with this story so stick with me. ...

Epic Games offices: not-so-epic phone camera picture tour

The Epic Games offices are...epic. Well, they're epic in a sort of subdued, business-like kind of way. The folks there were kind enough to show me around the offices after playing a bit of the upcoming Unreal Tournament III T...

Activision hires for 'advanced retouching of screenshots'

Have you ever heard of the games industry position "Art Services Screenshot Associate" before? Me either. I've always figured that there was someone out there that did something like this, but I didn't know that it ...

Comparison shots illustrate Rockstar's dedication to accuracy in GTA IV

I know what you’re thinking — “Goldarnit, another blasted GTA IV comparison post?!” (And if you are thinking that, well, the 1920s called; they want their mild oaths back.) But I’m happy to repor...

TGS 2007: Scrapbook Part 1 - The show floor

TGS 2007: Destructoid's official TGS party review wrap-up photo
TGS 2007: Destructoid's official TGS party review wrap-up
by Dale North

As promised, here is Destructoid's attempt to "review" the various parties of this year's Tokyo Game Show. Some might think that doing so would be a bit tasteless, as these are usually private events, but people come to expect this kind of tastelessness from Destructoid, so we won't disappoint. Yes, we're the type to "kiss and tell."

To be fair, the various parties that the Destructoid TGS team attended were all fun, but we quickly noticed the differences between them. We thought it would be fun to rate the parties based on several criteria, including categories like food, drinks, games, entertainment and more.  

Hit the jump to see the full party breakdown.
