Just saw this over at CheapAssGamer and it seems like a pretty amazing deal if you're looking at picking up a new 360 Slim. For the next 2 days Best Buy and Future Shop are selling 250GB 360s for the $199. This might be a sign of a new price point being announced at e3 but I think if that happens it'll only go down $50 to $249.
It's been a pretty good week of attempting to overcome my backlog with a ton of progress in Fallout: New Vegas, Torchlight, Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition, and the absolute destruction of Lara Croft and the Guardian...
As promised yesterday, here is my final tally from the Steam Holiday Sale. In no particular order:
* PB Winterbottom
* Titan Quest Gold
* Super Meat Boy
* Indie Fright Pack
* Blueberry Gar...
Steam, why do you do this me?! In the past 2 weeks I have added over 40 games to my backlog just because of the Steam sale. Yes. FORTY. Games ranging from PB Winterbottom for a paltry 49 cents ($15 on XBLA) to the gargan...
As anyone who has ever tried to conquer their backlog will know, the beginning is quite possibly the hardest part. Not only are you trying to tear yourself away from spending money on new games but you’re making a commitmen...
First of all I would just like to say that I want the above song to be the theme song of my life. I want it to play everywhere I go just so people know not to mess with me. And if they do there's a good chance that I'm goi...
My name is Kim Fidler, I'm Canadian, and I've been playing video games for over 25 years. Yes, you can calculate that and you'll probably realize that I'm kind of old. Not REALLY old but old enough to have 1 or 2 gray hairs (around 10 at last count). I'm 30 and even though I should be bogged down by all of the bullshit that comes with being an adult, I still love games and the gaming industry.
I don't really know what it is about games that I like so much but I think it has a lot to do with the community that surrounds them. I'm not talking about the fanboy jerk offs that populate every single gaming website, but the great people that keep this hobby a viable way to spend your free time. Take a look around at all of the people making community blogs on Destructoid and I can guarantee that every single one of those people is a great person in their own distinct way. They all have something to say and while you might not always agree with it, we as gamers are always willing to listen to different opinions.
That is why I have decided to start a blog on Destructoid. Over the past decade I have written for several gaming websites but it's come to that point in my life where I no longer want to be a member of the gaming press. It's a cool job but I have a career that I absolutely love and, well let's face it, I can't hang with all of the big names in the gaming media. I'm looking at you Jim "Big Comfort" Sterling.
So that's me. I'm a pretty normal guy that probably likes a lot of the same things that you do. I have a shaved head because it makes me look tough and I run about 25 kms a week. That's about it. Thanks for visiting my blog!
