LEGO. <3

I am an avid LEGO fan.
I've made 2 ships from Descent 3 (and I'm working on the other two now)
I also saw someone else's model of Cloud's buster sword, and I mimicked it.

Shadow of the Colossus

I've been considering on picking this game up for $20 on amazon, and was wondering on if anyone thought I should pick it up. I've heard many good things about this game, and I still am interested in expanding my PS2 collection. (just got a nice cheap copy of Persona 4 with a kick ass art book).

Also: is there a collectors edition of this game (SotC)? There's a few listings that say "Collectible" and if theres a special box or book that comes with it I think I would like it.

Anyone think this is a good purchase?

If not, Why?   read

The King

In celebration of the new DLC for Castle Crashers my fiancee drew out the King from the game.
I thought it would be nice to share her drawing with the community.

She was very excited to hear that he became playable, since he is her favourite character in the game.I think his little expressions are the reason why she fell in love with him

She would like to excuse the smudges on the paper though. She had lost her black pencil crayon and had to use charcoal pencils instead.

Late Present






Here he is. He's the little Tin robot that I think of when I see Mr. Destructoid. He was a little hard to find but I finally found a replica of the older ones that were made in the 50's? 60's? I'm not quite sure what era these toys are from.

But anyways, Happy New Year Dtoid.   read

Gaming Apocalypse

It's coming soon.. with the advent of "Guitar Zero" and "Cock band" We've come upon the equivalent of an atomic bomb in the gaming world. "All-star cheer squad" How do people let such crap get made?! Is THIS why I'm not getting a Descent 4 from THQ?! And this seems to be the beginning of the end of gaming as we know it! <sic> Who will be responsible when future generations come across this shit, and look at us like we just farted on their grandmas lap? Most of us will be blamed. Blamed for letting these atrocitys see the light of day.

I saddens me to see such an utter atrocity be dubbed as a "video game" Whatever happened to actually trying out for your schools Cheer squad? or even the damn flag line... I guess society is to blame... That or the "choreographer" who helped make this piece of bear diarrhea.

But it still pisses me off that THQ publishes and produces such atrocity's when they could be working on one of the best First Person Shooters ever made....

Fucking THQ and their fucking stupid fuck shit.

I guess we could fight it by not buying that crap.. but I can see it being a hit with girls 10-16. and even boys 13-15. (hey you can't buy porn here until you're 18, and in some states 21)


GAH! FUCK YOU THQ!   read

Unreal Gears of War

Yeah, it's the unreal engine, I know.. But for some reason the characters in this game (mainly the Cogs) look REALLY similar to some the guys in Unreal Tournament 2004. Almost like someone at Epic copied the Human warriors from UT2k4 and pasted them into GoW and GoW2. I mean.. yeah it's third person and has a cover mechanic.. but I mean.. dude. I'm not stupid, these guys are slightly modified UT characters. It almost feels like a UT mod...

As for my Surprise for the community. Be Patient! He is on his way soon. Just need contact from his current home. =)   read

Surprise for the Destructoid Community.

I'll be able to order him soon (as soon as the better half's coat gets returned) I won't post a pic until I have him safe and sound amongst his many many friends made of plastic die cast rubber and other sorts of synthetic materials.   read

Sigh.. Fallout 3.

I've never played Fallout. It looks real fun (even 2 and 1 look fun) but the only thing that has kept me from playing it is no multiplayer. Just looking at the preview footage.. yeah, it looks like a blast, but I can't team up with a friend? That alone makes me not want to play it.

Maybe I'll buy Fallout 2? I heard it's like 5 bucks some places.

(mental note: This looks like a Beta for another pay to play MMO)   read

Fuck ScrewAttack.com

Now.. don't get me wrong.. I at one time loved that site, I thought that a lot of the articles and news shows were worthy of being called journalism, and I often went there for gaming news.

Big mistake.

Recently, I noticed the Hard News on the site slipping from your regular Gamer News show, to fanboy yells at camera about his favorite games. I've also seen him do nothing but report on things that he likes for almost a month straight (ahem SPORE isn't the only fucking game out now, so quit talking about it on the fucking show) Also on this topic, a lot of PC gamers get insulted by this news show.. only to have the anchor reveal that he is one of the people he is insulting... Atrocious reporting. I also check their references often... only to find blank and moved websites. I recall the day after the newer "Bionic commando: rearmed" came out.. I posted "This game rules, if you didn't pay the old one check it out, if you did, you'll love this game" A week later I see Destin telling us that he has spent the whole weekend playing the game that I was trying to get others on the site to notice... No points for this.. No points for being constructive (like the point system is supposed to work)

Onto another bone to pick with the Screwed Attack.

The "G1 Points".

Totally fixed. If you're "Debaser" and you contribute to his (crappy) website, you automatically get voted to "Top g1 post" on SA. You can shit out crap articles about "Halloween" games and your SPECULATION on how the people at Midway came up with the ideas for their characters.. PLEASE! This is utter crap to anyone with a good sense of literary competence. More thought went into my high school speech class. More thought went into my high school English proficiency exam. yet, I still see this asswipe writing LAME stories that honestly are less interesting than watching an ant colony go after a picnic.

So.. ScrewAttack loses another user because they promote mediocre self-proclaimed ego inflated writers who basically shit out an article every week that has barely any thought and very little research.

I sometimes wonder if these kids have even taken College English...

I have.. and I know I would FAIL any English course if I submitted such utter bullshit as an assignment.

before you call yourself a fucking writer, take some fucking classes!

lol ^_^ love ya Destructoid.
