A Christmas Story

This is not a news update, nor is it a revealing insight into the gaming condition. No, this is a christmas story of sorts.

My friend's little brother got a PSP for christmas. Cool, sony is awesome. I like PSP's. half an hour later he came into the room and asked him to help us with it. He said he couldn't get the game to work. When we saw what he was doing to get it to work, we didn't have a doubt why it wasn't working. He had peeled the plastic casing off the UMD. We laughed. A lot. We considered him lucky because he did it to Lego: Star Wars instead of Dissidia.   read

Uncharted 2 Multiplayer: what am i doing wrong?

let me explain, two weeks ago i bought a ps3. three years of mind numbing anticipation was released with the parallel release of 300 big ones. i was finally on the curve with the rest of gaming society. i went to gamestop to purchase my first games for my new system. i went with MGS4 and Uncharted 2(U2). Skip ahead to the present, and i still cant figure out what the big deal is with U2's multiplayer. Don't get it twisted, i don't have a case of "isuckataparticulargamesoiwontlikeititis", i usually place second or first on my team. Plus, the singleplayer is my favorite since i've played Jak 2 (yeah, bet you didn't expect that coming from a guy whose avatar is Daxter and writing about U2). But what I can't get my head around is why everyone acts like U2's multiplayer is the second coming of Christ on the PS3. My issues: i play the same maps all the time (i'm looking at you Ice Caves), i start with same crappy weapon in every game (how about some variety?), and people are allowed to play as lazarovich. Okay, maybe the last reason isn't anything to be irked about, but i dont like being killed by someone who gave me enough of trouble in the main story.

hopefully im the only one who feels this way so i can fall aslepp with full comfort knowing that i am wrong. please share your thought in the comments section.   read

Ceremonial Introductory Post (Or Who I Am)

Bonjour respectable Destructoid community! I Am dragracedude. And now that a certain fall sport that requires pads and a helmet to play is over, I can begin my long awaited quest to make my voice fapped in the vast sea of meaningless opinions that is the internet. Oh, i'll bet that you're still reeling over my allusion to the fact that i play [b]football[b]. Well, have no fear, i am just as humble geek as you are. I will not trash-can you or give a swirlie,(unless you're a fanboy), but i will ROFL at the video of the act taking place. Anyway back to games, I love first-person-shooters, racers, platformers, and side-scrolling italian lessons. I also love cats.
