Okay, I know that this isn't really timely or anything. I'm aware that practically none of you on Destructoid have a Sammy Atomiswave or Sega ST-V system. I'm aware even those of you who do probably don't really give a crap a...   0

The Past: No More Quarters

Ah, the modern age of gaming. The graphics, the online connectivity, the movie quality voice work and effects, the post-release content ... the complete soullessness of it all. How I loathe it. How I wish I could go back to...   0

Shortblog: The Real News of the Epic Mickey 2 Announcement

As you’ve probably seen by now, a sequel to 2010’s Disney tribute/platformer Epic Mickey has been announced – not too surprisingly, a good amount of gamer chatter has bubbled forth in response, including quite a bit of earl...   0

"Previously on (insert episodic game here)..."

Way back in the early 00’s, developers became enamoured with the idea of episodic content. It was a dream everybody could believe in. Well, believe in more than, say, the VR storage system in the Michael Douglas/Demi Moor...   0
