Papers, Please: The Time Sega Power Went Nuts

My age had nudged into the double-digits and I had already amassed a huge amount of Commodore 64 magazines (which I sadly allowed my father to throw out…argh. I regret that). From the time my brother got us a Seg...

Ten More Things Batthink Will Allow You to Know That You Didn’t

This meme again? I did this three years ago… Oh well, I may as well get involved. After all, I don’t usually get double-figure posts for my blog-entries… and yeah, I know it is late to the party. I usually am, blog-wise. ...

My Impressions of Ridge Racer Unbounded and Armored Core 5

It has been a little while since I last visited the Namco Bandai offices in Hammersmith, London. That time, I got to try out Enslaved before its release. Suitably chuffed with the game and the place where I was able to p...

Predictions: Surfer Girl Not Included

Hello. I’m sure you’ll have guessed by now that this blog will be concerning this week’s musing, regarding what the year 2012 holds for gamers. I’d thought that, rather than focus on just one particular gaming-based idea ...

Acquisition: Midcity Madness

Shepherds Bush, London, under a decade ago. I was standing around in frustration at my recent efforts to accomplish what I thought would be an ideal; my attempt to progress at an Unreal Tournament 2003 World Cyber Games qu...

Countdown to Eurogamer 2011: A Look at Last Year

Hollie and the gang hanging out at her home For those of you basking in the memories of PAX Expos, E3 and Gamescom, you’d be forgiven for believing that all of these shows managed to cover all of the forthcoming videogame ...

Handhelds: But Look at All This SPACE!

I noticed the title for the weekly C-blog musing and thought could I really be bothered to write about a favourite/worst handheld? I couldn’t be. In the end, I’ve decided to do something a little different. Instead of a ...

Fail List: Before You Die Edition

Fail List: Before You Die Edition This is it. The big list. About as close to the ‘ultimate list’ as you can get. When Cassell Illustrated published their 1001 series of books, the first one that caught my eye was 1001 ...

A Temporary Greek Tragedy: Law 3037/2002

2002 was an interesting year. The Allied forces were in Afghanistan and (unwisely) trying to get stuck into Iraq as well; the World Cup was held in Japan and South Korea, eventually being won by Brazil; Joe Strummer, Dudle...

Small Brain: Woman Neglects Dogs and Kids Whilst Playing Online Game

Damn. Usually Jim Sterling gets shocking articles like this first, especially since it is one I first spotted in the UK's Daily Mail newspaper. Rather than demonising the game, the article writer at least managed to give ...

Enslaved: Batthink’s Viewpoint

Some of you have no doubt had a look at Ace Flibble’s blog (the one rather unfortunately posted below two spam-blogs for a penal-enhancement advert) about his experience playing the first seven levels of Ninja Theory’s Ensl...

Fail List: Toy Gun is Not Sexy Edition

Good afternoon. It has been a while since my eyes managed to spy another videogame-based list for a gander. That was until I saw this; Hey, a semi-laddish technology magazine will get your attention if it has GAMING in B...

The Short History of World Cup Themed Football Games

Warning: if you are American, the game that is being referred to as ‘football’, by the author from the United Kingdom, is actually what you would term ‘soccer’. In order to respect both sides’ views of what this sport shou...

Fail List - Inaccurate Title Edition

I usually get some great responses to some of the newspaper/magazine videogame lists, so imagine my joy when I found the Independent had done a top fifty list themselves in their Information weekend pull-out. The only proble...

Knock-Off-Arama: Ashens Reviews the PCP Station (or Siaiion)

Why Siaiion? Watch the video below and you'll understand. This 14 minute-plus video by Ashens is a brilliant dissection of an item that shows the lengths desperate Chinese businessmen acquire cash. Highlights appear at 4:3...

Destructoid UK’s London February Meet Up

Twas on the Friday 12th February that the UK-based members of Destructoid popped over to London for good times. Our organiser, Hollie (AKA Phoenix), couldn’t join us, and I had initially concern that the absence was becaus...

Batthink’s Big Secret Santa Opening (Christmas Eve Unboxing Day)!

Hi guys. Was planning to do a monthly musing blog, but then I felt had more fun things to do and couldn’t be bothered. I’ve never been a fan of essays, and making a decent blog takes a little research and experience on top ...

Nothing is Sacred: RPG-style Upgrades and the Inability to Incapacitate

I love RPGs. There is nothing I love more piling hours of my time into them, slowly generating a character, evolving them through battles and then watching with glee at seeing them pummel a powerful enemy into the ground. ...

Shortblog: Thelondonpaper Uses D/Toid Wii Sports Image. Also, Kitten.

Okay, this is a fairly short topic, so I'll beef it up slightly by explaining how I happened upon this little article. I was coming back from a music gig in Norwich on the train. Happy and satisfied to catch another great p...

Choice Scans of GamesTM Magazine: E3 Round Up

I received my copy of UK magazine GamesTM through the door on Saturday. A good thing too; I needed something to take my mind off the dwindling bank account I have. As this was the one which covered E3, there was plenty of n...

The 50 Best Games Of NOW! (According to Stuff Magazine, Scans)

Every so often I peruse the magazine shelf of the supermarket I work at. Ever since I managed to get a shedload of comments for posting top 100/50/25/10 lists from one, I thought it would be imperative to at least get your o...

Mystery Square Enix Game Teaser

Getting the news from Videogamer.com, you hear bullets zinging away, explosions and an ominous comment from JFK listed across a large (possibly Asian) cityscape here. The site hazarded a guess at either a new IP, or the fa...

News Scans: Disgaea 2 Portable, Legends of Zork and TMNT: Smash-Up

I managed to get my copy of GamesTM through the post, and I already discovered a few games that I know a few of you should be interested in.... I noticed a PSP version of the Nippon-Ichi life-sucker on this scan. It's pre...

9 things you might know about ZeroTolo.

So I figured that I might as well get on the wagon now that everyone else is doing it. No need to fart around, let's get to it! Also, I couldn't think of ten things, so I just did nine instead. 9. I seem to have started my...

Ten Things The Batthink Will Allow You To Know That You Didn’t

The meme was too powerful for me. After finding out a lot of interesting things about the D/Toid crew, I now step into the ring. There are more facts about myself that I could divulge, but I won’t list them for various reas...
