Beta for Crimecraft is coming on May 12th

Okay, I confess. At one point I thought that maybe, you know, I'd get a gig writing for ye olde Dtoid. Then I realized it would take me a ton of effort and I would like not be approved due to super intense competition. So I k...   read

If You Know WoW and Your Friends Are Playing WAR and You Don't Know Why, Let Me Enlighten You

While all games elicit a range of opinions, the range of opinions on any specific game is usually narrow. You get a range of 60-83 on a scale of 100, with more than half between 65 and 77. You get numerous mentions of that on...   read

Changes may stink, but no permanent losses for gaming

Across formal and informal outlets the discussion about the direction of games journalism has become somewhat of a dry topic, juicy stories withstanding; but the direction of the games industry hasn't. Writers, commenters, te...   read

Shawn Elliott going to game development

I know that it's a little bit not kosher to reference other media outlets, but surely for someone as awesome as this we can make an exception. Shawn Elliott is leaving 1UP. This breaks my heart. There are few journalists that over the age of 30 that I consistently feel I can relate to, and this guy is one of them. Good luck at whatever the hell game company you're going to work at, Shawn.   read

Castle Crashers: an homage

No, not an homage to Castle Crashers: an homage by Castle Crashers. The developers have publicly stated being influenced by the classics, and it shows. Now for an attempt to cover the basic elements of design that all beat 'e...   read

Warhammer Beta = fail

Mythic was stupid enough to only make it available by torrent or Fileplanet. Well I'm not going to pay to get a beta I'm already good for! Shouldn't have to pay to download my own damn game. So I used the free version of Fileplanet, of course. At about 30 hours, I have 25% on torrent and I finished on Fileplanet. The file is corrupted. Bad start. Very bad start.   read

The deal was I had to get a pink one

I was born in 1981. I didn't get a cell phone until 2005, and except for a short period of my life, I hardly ever use the thing. I'm an old man at the age of 26, already insisting I don't need these gadgets and plenty of onli...   read

Battlefield Heroes isn't "ripping off" Team Fortress 2

Battlefield Heroes is frequently being compared to Team Fortress 2, and for good reason--it's the only other FPS with a similar style of art, and a very unique style at that. This has led to frequent criticism that it's just...   read

Oops, I've been meaning to get around to playing that

Since a point in 2007 there is one encouraging thing I've seen about games, and that is their status as an object of consumption. In the industrial world, we have more food and more leisure time than ever before. Unlike othe...   read

Why America Hates Video Games

The Escapist recently published an article about the "media myth", which is really an article that says "So many people hate video games, and it's fascinating," followed by "we can't blame the media for it, it's really due to...   read

PC version of Mass Effect: let the Fascism references begin

PC piracy is blamed for a lot of things, especially poor sales on games. Including bad ones. However, a game we know that won't be bad, Mass Effect, is going to go to the next level in anti-piracy: periodic CD Key checks. Holy shit. Anyone thinking Starforce?   read

8-bit music: 7 artists whose stuff you wish you'd heard on your NES

For those not in the know, there is a tiny, tiny genre of music featuring Gameboy and NES synthesizers to create more 8-bit awesomeness simply known as 8-bit music. Most of it is crappy and/or experimental, but I've been di...   read
