A Digital History of "America's Gun"

The 1911. Ol' Slabsides. The handgun almost everyone knows universally as "The .45", so much so that many don't know any other firearms chambered in .45 ACP. One of the most prolific, iconic firearms in the history of t...

Hat Trick: 2012

While everyone is working on and debating their Game of the Year choices for 2014, I'm going to be turning the dial back a couple notches and looking back. Partly because I didn't write a single blog in 2012, and partly ...

Long Time No See

Do you... what I did there?   That was terrible and I should apologize. I won't, but I should. So, hello again Destructoid. It's been a long time. Like, long. An amazing amount of shit can happen in three years. I...

Deus Ex and the Perils of the Multiple Choice Protagonist

[This Article has been scrubbed by top Counter-Spoiler Software to ensure a Spoiler-Free experience.] So, I finally got my copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I pre-ordered the Augmented Edition from GameStop for the art boo...

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...

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...

Aaamaazing: Conflict: Desert WTF?

Conflict: Desert Storm. How many of you have played it? I hope every last person who reads this blog has played that piece of shit. It was one of the worst games I've ever touched. Looking back on it now, I can say withou...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

PAXwards ComPAXtible PAXcast Recording Tonight! Come Get SWAG...maybe...

PAX is officially over and we're all fucking tired. Come ask us questions then listen to us talk about all the useless shit we got. After three days of video game sex and watching deuchebags before you in line play the game wrong and waiting in lines, we have quite a lot to say. Really, what the fuck am I going to do with all these tshirts?

What PAX Means to Me: Numbered List Edition

I don't blog all too often, but when I do it is either because I feel compelled to say something deep or meaningful, or Xavier is all like, "YO MAKE A DTOID POST FOR THE PODCSAT OH LOOK I CAN'T SPELL" and I'm all like, "YO OK...

Why I F-ING HATE Destructoid!

Well! Let me tell you! Um... They.... Wha- F- J- P- K- D- PLEH Eh!? HEAD ASPLODE! Moral of the Story: It is impossible to hate Destructoid unless you are the type of person that doesn't think finding a cat in a PS3 Slim box is funny. GOOD DAY LOVERS!

I Suck at Games: The Fighting Disease

Hi, I’m Blindfire, and I am a fight-a-holic. I love fighting games, probably more than most rational men should. I only wish that they loved me back. For me, it all started with Mortal Kombat III. MK3 was my first introdu...

The Console War: Or, how I learned to start worrying about Sony

Well, it seems like today is the day to weigh in on concerns over Sony’s place in the industry, what with all the discussion over price cuts and lack thereof, and the statements made by Tretton. So, here goes: I think the p...

I, the Author: Epic PWNAGE
