My family is very musically inclined. My father sings, and my mother sings and plays guitar. My wife's family is also musical; playing piano, guitar, drums, etc. between her, her brother, father, aunt, and so on. When I was a...   read

This 'Gamer Song' is just as good as you think

German YouTuber ForbiddenNickname clearly loves videogames. So much so that he has penned what I'm sure he feels is the greatest gamer anthem in the history of ever. Your mileage may vary. In what is some sort of weird hybrid between Ramms...

 
Stick it to the Man!
If you know me, you know what a big comedy fan I am. Comedy is kind of my whole life, my passion, my raison d'etre, if you will. Videogames are obviously one of my other passions. So, when the two meet, I tend to be very hope...   read

Star Wars Pinball
Back in February, Zen Studios released three tables based on the Star Wars series, adding to the already vast library of tables for Pinball FX2. They were fantastic, diverse, and just as feature-rich as the other tables for the game. Many believed it would be hard for the studio to match that collection. These newest tables not only match the previous set but manage to surpass it.   read

Atomic Ninjas

Review: Atomic Ninjas

Ninjas and explosions: two great tastes that you would think taste great together, right? Throw them in a pot, mix with weapons, gadgets, and frenetic multiplayer action, and you have a recipe for an awesome adventure. Sadly, I don't think this one cooked long enough.   read

Impressions: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

"If at first you don't succeed..." is an interesting business model, especially considering that Dead or Alive 5 wasn't really a "failure," per se. However, try, try again Team Ninja did, and we are now treated to a third version of this pa...

Review: Open Me!

Augmented Reality games tend to be very hit or miss, with the majority falling squarely in the "miss" category. Either they don't quite fit well within the reality setting, or they don't do enough to capture your attention to...   read

About Ian Bondsone of us since 4:54 PM on 10.23.2010

Ian is Dtoid's resident review monkey. If there is a game no one else wants to review, it usually goes to Ian. As a reviewer, Ian has been writing for close to ten years for various sites, starting with Kevin Smith's "MoviePoopShoot", and is a sometimes contributor to ComicMix, but he loves calling Dtoid home. When not reviewing, Ian's rocking the mic and stage as Insane Ian, a comedy musican/nerdcore artist and frequent contributor to the Funny Music Project (aka thefump.com).
