Moving on (also, baby bats in blankets!)

With nearly five years of some of the best times of my life under my belt, I can't seem remember a time when I wasn't on this crazy Destructoid train. So this is going to be weird to type: as this month comes to a close, I ...

Questions regarding Bethesda titles Prey 2, Hunted, or Brink?

I'm in Utah this week, learning that being high up in the mountains means that I feel like I've run a marathon if I walk across the street. Pretty neat! I'm here for Bethesda's BFG 2011 event, where we're being shown Prey 2,...

Podtoid DX Championship Edition EX + Alpha 3: The Dream Warriors

About a month ago, the guy who signs my checks (that's Niero) said to me: "Hey, we need to get another podcast off the ground with the site's everyday, core writers. Get it done." He doesn't often demand I do things, so I f...

On being a Spike VGAs judge (bonus: my nominees!)

[Note: This is a first draft ramble about the process; I had originally intended to just dump my choices here and move on. So please forgive any errors or oddities.] Little known fact: to choose the nominees for the VGAs, Sp...

Fallout: New Vegas launch party, game magazines, a baby

So first off, Bethesda has the best fucking stamps. When they sent me a holiday card last December, the stamp had a picture of Vault Boy wearing a Santa Claus hat. Here's the stamp that was on the invite for the upcoming laun...

Monday Review: The Karate Kid

'The Karate Kid' comes kicking back The Karate Kid just won the award for surprise of the year. It's good. No, like actually bona-fide good. While remakes of 80s films might be in vogue it's been tough going, but Karate Ki...

Monday Review: Splice

People seemed to like/hate my Prince of Persia review so I figured I'd start these up again for now. I got behind as I should also have a review for Get Him to the Greek, but I'll just say that it's definitely as funny as For...

Why you might see me before your movies this weekend

You may go to a movie this weekend, and if you get there early you might see the "First Look." It's those ads before the movies that play. While not paying attention to the screen you may see someone you recognize on the sc...

I'm Thankful for Destructoid

Hi Destructoid Community (of which I count myself a proud member), I'm thankful for you. I'm thankful you read my posts on weekends. I'm thankful you yell at me when you disagree with a post. I'm thankful you agree with...

Monday Review: Paranormal Activity and Couples Retreat

'Paranormal Activity' delivers the fear The slow burn. It's a lost art in most film genres, let alone horror. Right now most horror consists of getting in, killing people quickly and shoving a few sudden appearances by the...

Monday Review: Zombieland and Whip It

Remind you of anything? *cough*Left4Dead*cough* 'Zombieland' has it all Zombieland has one flaw, and its so minuscule that it's almost not worth mentioning, but for any zombie movie lover it is important. See, it should re...

Monday Review: Pandorum and Surrogates

'Pandorum' brings space horror back In the future, when interplanetary space travel is required because earth is about to be destroyed and we need to find a new planet, if the ships that are built are huge hulking things o...

PAX and the tale of the silver flasks

As you can see in the photo above, next to my BioShock Big Daddy and Little Sister and framed photo of Niero in front of MTV Studios, there is one incredibly hip looking silver flask. With the Dtoid head engraved on it, in ...

Monday Review: 9

'9' is not so fine What an absolutely gorgeous and intriguing yet entirely underdeveloped and sadly shallow world the film 9 takes place in. It's like watching a painting come to life, and then realizing that the world of ...

Monday Review: Extract and The September Issue

Sorry guys, no Gamer review as my screening was canceled. Hopefully I'll get to see it over the weekend. Judge extracts the plot, leaves the comedy It's pretty clear that at some point in time Mike Judge was a comic geniu...

Monday Review: Taking Woodstock

'Woodstock' wants it all, but misses I was not alive to experience Woodstock, and since the hippie movement (or anything like it) doesn't seem to be coming back any time soon I seriously doubt I'll have the pleasure of eve...

Why I love Destructoid

Monday Review: Inglorious Basterds and Post Grad

(Ok, I lied. There's no Inglorious Basterds review. All of the press screenings were at times I couldn't make so you'll have to wait until Monday by which time you'll probably have already seen it. Until then though, enjoy me...

Monday Review: District 9 and Ponyo

'District 9' brings humanity to aliens There is one key thing the best science fiction films have in common, and that is that if you took out the aliens or lasers or spaceships or androids they'd still be compelling storie...

Monday Review: G.I. Joe

Go Joe? As a film critic I was pretty sure that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was going to be the worst film of the summer, but one must do what one must do. I thus headed into the theater and firmly shoved the film critic i...

Monday Review: (500) Days of Summer

'(500) Days' brings freshness and life to rom-coms The set-up for (500) Days of Summer is hardly anything new, as the film readily admits. The story of boy meets girl is as old as stories go, and has been told on film so m...

Monday Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

<p>'Harry Potter' is a prince </p><p>It just keeps getting better. For most movie series that grow beyond a trilogy the latter films start to wane, taking fans on a roller coaster of quality in each and ever...

Monday Review: Bruno

<p> Brüno brings the funny back After Borat came out, and was the funniest movie in years, the question was how long could the film's star, Sacha Baron Cohen, keep up his trademark comedy of tricking people into ...

Questions for Gearbox's Randy Pitchford?

Monday Review: Public Enemies

'Public Enemies' makes a man out of a legend Sadly that headline is not a compliment, but it isn't an insult either, it's just a statement of fact. John Dillinger, the subject of Public Enemies, Michael Mann's latest film,...
