What do you want from a Boss Fight?

I’m terrible at sticking to one game at a time. Whilst I should be dedicated to The Witcher (especially since I’m blogging about it once a month), I’m also playing Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the...

Is Minecraft Bad for Adults?

Did you know that bananas are good for you? The high potassium and low sodium content in each yellow packet of mush is great for your cardiovascular system. They are also high in fibre, which helps you poop. Which is nic...

Objective Survive, Chapter 2 - (Slightly) Videogame Related Fiction

Gaming Fantasy Dinner Party - Guest Numbers Three & Four

Dear Destructoid, On the one hand, I feel a little daft posting here today. Like a man who wants to cook a bacon sandwich despite the fact the house is on fire. There's a lot going on here, most of it not-so-great, and m...

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

A dinner party doesn't have to be a formal affair. There's no reason why every guest should arrive in formal wear, or point the pinky finger when they sip drinks, or speak in a clipped 'Queen's English' around the dinner...

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...

An Apology to The Orange Box

Might the Gaming World forgive me? May my sins be absolved? In my youth, I was foolish fool of fools. In my haste, and childish recklessness, I made a grave error: I sold my copy of The Orange Box less than two weeks aft...

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...

The Dangers of Being a Person who Plays Video Games

Cramps Let’s start this off bold and true. The ancient Greek for the word cramps, translates as "Oh lord this is how I am going to die, there is no hope. Amputate the leg". When you game, the main part of your bod...

Stealth Purity and the Long Cheat

What Zelda Items would improve other videogames? (A Blog Revisited)

Now I won’t say that I offered inspiration to the latest Call of Duty… because I obviously didn’t. What I did do was suggest a change to the game franchise that kind of, sort of, made it into the ...

Threaks and the nice side of Gaming

Given that I am not employed by Destructoid, there should be no conflict in this particular piece. I am also not paid by or engage in lude acts with Threaks. Though I do engage in raunchy times with German beer.  T...

Animal Weapons Videogames vs History

If you want a game to look zany, turn any animal into a tool for destruction. The creature might be the weapon itself, useful for bludgeoning, or it might be the ammunition that you fling or fire at your confused opponen...
