How Historically Accurate is The Witcher Part 3?

Compared to other RPGs I’ve played, The Witcher is a very intimate game. Even counting the segments of the city of Vizima as separate locations, the list of places I’ve seen so far is very small. The cast of ...

Will Videogames improve when The Machines take over?

I’m looking forward to the time when robots reign supreme. I’m not just saying that so that I will be looked on favourably when the inevitable cybernetic revolt takes place. All I will say is that if our new ...

​Gaming Fantasy Dinner Party Guest Number Two

Should open world games rethink how they tell stories?

We've all observed stories that use the 'x days later' device. A linear narrative can avoid weeks, months and years of bunkum by jumping to the next interesting bit. It's a trick which allows the storyteller to stick to ...

A Curious Query from RedHeadPeak

Hello Destructoid, I was just wondering whether you’d like to read a story. A lot of lovely readers have, in the past, remarked that my ramblings on History and Gaming might make for a good book. Truth be told, tha...

Dying in Game: Whats the weirdest way to go?

It was Nietzsche that wrote, “What does not kill me makes me stronger”. In reality, that’s regularly true. When it comes to videogames, it really depends on how you are about to be killed. In some cases...

Does History defend the tradition of Male Protagonists?

I enjoy finding parallels between Gaming and History, and the treatment of gender in each field shows some commonality. Within the realm of videogames, gender is a topic of debate/discussion/angry rants all of itself. Th...
