Cataracts, Terror, and Deus Ex

I know, I've been away for awhile. Longer than I'd have liked, but I haven't been able to muster the urge to write more than a few lines in comments lately. Today, though, I think I want to sit down and talk about what's be...   more

Untapped Potential Revisited: Genre Generalization

Two years ago today I wrote and posted my first blog on Destructoid. I'd been wondering after two years here on the C-Blog circuit what I could do to adequately commemorate this "blog birthday". Then it hit me. Two years...   more

Changes: Fear and Loathing in Silicon Valley (And... introductions?!)

I remember unboxing my first gaming console. The PlayStation. The palpable excitement of hooking the little bastard up and clicking the first disk into place. The months that followed, hours of digital joy chock-full of dr...   more

PAX '10 and (miss)Alice(dixon)'s Adventures in Wonderland

Last year at PAX I remember standing around timidly until I finally recognized a few people whose pictures I saw online. Within 10 minutes of walking up and awkwardly introducing myself, I was surrounded by people who welco...   more



The Obligatory PAX Prime CBlog

You can tell it's been too long since I posted a Community Blog as it took me ten fucking minutes to find the right page! Anyway, never mind all that bollocks because I'm trying to talk about PAX Prime! Last week was my firs...   more



The Great Escape: Grief

My dog died a few days ago. Not something I was interested in calling attention to here, or discussing at all at length with anyone. But then I saw this month’s musing post, and thought I’d write this up. I met Charlie m...   more

PAX East, and a Deadly Game of Cat and Anonymouse

Irish Coffee. It was the perfect Boston drink for PAX East. It's hot, it's sweet, it keeps you alert and awake, and yet it sneakily ushers copious amounts of Jameson into your bloodstream. The Destructoid community function...   more



Jim Sterling (that's me) interviewed on Machinima's Inside Gaming

Your old pal Sterling on ScrewAttack's Sidescroller's podcast

HI GANG! I appeared on ScrewAttack's Sidescrollers podcast this week to discuss my "Videogame 'fans' need to shut up about everything" editorial. I chat to Destin L and Stuttering Craig about fandom, old school games, and Sonic's legs being too long. Quite a fun little debate and hopefully it is interesting to people. Check it out here: SIDESCROLLERS OMG Hope you like it!   more



We are the the worst fanbase... ever.

We are worse than comic book fans, movie fans, sports fans (except maybe soccer). It is important to remember that they (the game creators) are the ones who's vision is being spun into reality, and we (99% of the players) ar...   more

Building A Better Game Blog -- Originality

People write in the cblogs for all kinds of reasons. They may aspire to games writing careers. They may have a love for gaming that they need to share with the world. They may be just shy of losing their last tenuous grip o...   more



An exerpt from the Diary of Moria Shepard

Visited all of the shops in the only fully functional ward in the Citadel. Whored myself out for advertising. Getting creepy hearing my voice everywhere. I keep looking over my back expecting to see a horde of angry shopke...   more

Building a Better Game Blog -- Substance

If there's one thing that sets the community blogs of Destructoid apart from any other gaming site to me, it's a demand for excellence in writing. It's part of what drew me to stay, knowing that just participating in the c...   more

The following blogs are written from the perspective of my Mass Effect character, the ruthless colonist known as Moira Shepard. There will probably be no pictures, as I do not have a video capture system attached to the Xbox...   more

Top 5 Reasons Why I Hate MGS4

Spoilers will be present in this. You have been warned. Please don’t confuse the word “hate” with “I think this is a bad game”. Metal Gear Solid 4 is anything but a bad game. It’s a pretty damn good one overall. I litera...   more

RANT: Unlocking Content in Fighting Games

I’ll just come right out and say it: I fucking hate unlocking shit in fighting games. Usually I consider unlocking items/weapons/equipment/costumes in games to be something pleasant. I like the challenge it represents. Jus...   more

On Parenting, Gaming, Violence, and Society

Two things I need to get out of the way before I get started here: First, I am not of the belief that people are inherently good or evil; nothing I am about to say is an attempt to paint people or their actions as good or ba...   more

Unrequited : How Games (and People) Learned to Love

Finding and expressing love is the ultimate multiplayer activity in life. It requires skill, patience, understanding, intuition, courage, passion, regular showers, a metric ass-ton of luck, and usually a nice pair of shoes...   more



A tribute to videogame fan films, and a game you NEED to play (but won't).

Firstly, this. Any excuse to watch Escape from City 17, right? Secondly, The Void is currently on sale for half off ($9.99) on Steam, and really deserves to be checked out. Maybe. On the one hand: It's one of the most in...   more

A new article, and thoughts on The Saboteur (and open world games in general).

Firstly, this is about the most prolific video game movie actors in Hollywood. Two are supermodels. The Saboteur is, to me, an incredibly enjoyable game that isn't actually all that good. While its controls are horrendou...   more

An article on game documentaries, and Assassin's Creed II thoughts

First of all, this. Second of all, I think AC2's ending has to go down in history, alongside the Star Destroyer bit in Force Unleashed, as one of those gameplay moments that sounds absolutely spectacular written down but i...   more

Regarding depictions of gamers in films, and an unofficial HAWP
