So, you want to be my friend...

So... if you met me at a party would you walk up and hand me a picture of lesbian porn?† I don't really care if you're female, or if you're gay, but you might want to introduce yourself first and say "hi", before giving me ...

The invisibility of the older woman...

Dtoid Sucks Now

Yep, it's another one of those blogs. An old-timer is ranting and raving about things changing and people moving on, blah blah blah. I started coming to Destructoid 6 years ago. That's a long time for anything, let alone s...

No means no... but sometimes it has to be said out loud.

This started as a response to Glowbear's excellent blog recapping some recent events at E3, but it grew far too long, and I've never been concise... so I'll put my huge ramble here in my own blog, but please read her blog FIR...

It's all about who you're sleeping with...

original Possible spoilers for the Mass Effect trilogy ahead... proceed at your own risk! I've mentioned it before, but I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to video game romances. †I dumped Anomen the wimp in Bald...

The sound of many hands fapping...

Deal with it.

Yup, the next Xbox might not be for you. The rumours of an "always on" internet connected next-generation Xbox aren't particularly new, though recent leaks and the distinct lack of any outright denial seem to further confi...

I think I'm going to be defiant!

I got to level 157 or so in Defiance during the beta week... so apparently I liked the game. It releases today on my Birthday, April 2nd, and there's a pretty decent chance I'll be getting the game...because Birthday monie...

Just call me Farmer Elsa!

I never did play Demon Souls... even though I normally love WRPG styled games. I heard it was difficult, as in brutally difficult and when I want to have my ass kicked, I generally load up an online multiplayer FPS game like...

I'm a Grumpy, Old Douchebag: A Rant

Competition, video games and real life...

I'm not a competitive person. I tend to prefer multiplayer shooter games that are based on team tactics and allow for helping out team members with the ability to play medic or engineer or other non-shooty aspects to the g...

Surprise!

So I finally (after trying out a LOT of demos) found a Kinect game I actually like. Someone on another blog indicated that the game Rhythm Party was similar to the old Eyetoy Groove game... so I looked up the demo and gave...
