Doorbusting the Dead Island tourism board on PC standards


Another casual discussion from the Dtoid news room
Jan 30
// Conrad Zimmerman
In this latest installment of Office Chat, Jordan Devore, Brett Zeidler, and I consider whether Dead Island's cinematic trailers are misleading and if PC gamers should expect ports of games that utilize the superior power of their hardware. Plus, Nintendo's Virtual Console promotion might be a bit confusing, but represents a pretty good value.

Office Chat: Turning the Apple Valve and finding sleep


Apr 18
// Conrad Zimmerman
Time once again for another conversation from within Destructoid's virtual office. In this edition of Office Chat, I'm joined by Dale North and Daniel Starkey for a lovely discussion of the rumors swirling about a clandestine meeting between Apple and Valve. Meanwhile, Starkey has a novel method for falling asleep at night, but at the cost of his enjoyment of motion-controlled games.

Office Chat: Reavers of Dark Souls and social games


Mar 22
// Conrad Zimmerman
Office Chat is back! Seemingly, Soul Reaver is coming back as well and the gang talks a little bit about their memories of the Legacy of Kain series. Zynga's acquisition of Draw Something developer OMGPop leads Conrad to beg for more board game adaptations. And a discussion of a Dark Souls tease is interrupted by the invasion of a black phantom.

Jan 20
// Conrad Zimmerman
It's time for another casual conversation from within Destructoid's virtual office. Dale is trapped in a particularly lengthy cutscene that he can't tear himself away from. Meanwhile, Square Enix keeps sending weird crap and a brief word on how the internet blackout went for us.

Jan 05

We're chatting it up in Destructoid's virtual office yet again. Dale North and Jordan Devore return with a little playful ribbing towards resident sports gamer Samit Sarkar and his propensity for illness.

Dec 14
// Conrad Zimmerman
We have another delightful edition of Office Chat for you today. Join Jim Sterling, Jordan Devore and I as we consider a world where all Zelda is motion-controlled.

Nov 29
// Conrad Zimmerman
Join us for another casual conversation in Destructoid's virtual office. In this latest installment of Office Chat, Jim Sterling, Jordan Devore and I fondly remember everything about Dragon's Lair (except for the actual game). I complain about niggling annoyances in Batman: Arkham City and we all learn a little something about Jim's tits. Surely there is something here for everyone.
