Villainthropist Voyage: Legend of Zelda and Metroid

It's been a long time since I did anything here. Considering recent events in the video game industry, I have not really been in a frame of mind to interact with it too much, whether it be the writey-all-about-it side or...

Val Kilmer's Emergency Podtoid Conclusion Stadium Showdown Arena On Ice

The bar was silent. Uncharacteristically silent. Usually, the sound of a beatbox playing oldey-time honky-tonk piano under a piano made of cornflake boxes and the sound of a women screaming as she was chased endlessly by a di...

Souless: The Curse of Modern Racing Games

People often like to talk about the game that got them into gaming. Whilst I had consoles from a very early age, the game that got me hooked came when I was eight years old. With my freshly unwrapped Sega Saturn, I immediate...

The Playstation Store sucks balls.

I've stated before that as a father of three, I have levels of patience and tolerance that normal people without children ( or superpowers ) do not possess. Meaning that I usually let things slide off my person, no matter h...

So... I hear Destructoid sucks now.

I've always believed that the hardest thing in the world to do is be truthful as well as sincere. To speak one's mind for the sake of it without ulterior motives at play. Usually I gravitate to those who practice this whet...

Why am I here?

AKA A Backlog Diary: Part 32 It is a question I ask myself quite a lot. Whether it be slogging away at two jobs I donít even like, or hanging out with friends I donít find interesting or even very agreeable in any respect, o...

Why's she called Bayonetta? She has no bayonets.

I'd have called her Gunonetta. AKA A Backlog Diary: Part 31 Having just finished one more game in the backlog, I find myself at a cross-roads; a cross-roads with about thirty different exits. There are still so many games t...

This Metro isn't what Berlin was singing about... too many mutants.

AKA A Backlog Diary: Part 30 In the wake of the short film to promote Metro: Last Light, I felt a sudden urge to finish something I started over a year ago. There are many games in my collection that I have started and not ...

Hype: My envy of a fifteen year old me.

Itís been a long time since I have been truly hyped for anything game related. Iíve enjoyed a lot of games lately, but none have had me counting down the days on a calendar to a much anticipated release date. Sure, there are ...

A Backlog Diary: Part 26- Super Mario 3D Land is a steaming pile of sub-medicore

Most people spend much of their lives going with the flow. It is comfortable and unchallenging to accept common views as truth. If most of the people you know say that sharks are pretty friendly creatures who speak Korean, yo...

A Backlog Diary: Part 25- Put yo' hood up!

It is rare I get to post two blogs in as many days, but this week, it appears I am close to posting three in three days. Last night saw me finally complete Assassin's Creed: Revelations, a task I have been putting off for a l...

A Backlog Diary: Part 24- Wanted: Portable Gaming- Dead or Alive

A Backlog Diary: Part 23- A Heller good time? Or begging for Mercer?

I think I must have really liked Prototype 2. A lot. There are currently only two games with which I have unlocked all achievements; Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which stands as one of my favourite games of all time, and Proto...

In defense of both Chuck Beaver and Gears of War (1)

I might be a little late to the party over this little controversy, but here goes anyway. It might have crossed your minds that Epic Games is hardly a developer that needs defending. With one of the most financially and crit...

A Backlog Diary: Part 22- LittleBigProblem's with this game!

I'm bored of games at the moment. I think I've exorcised myself of some demons I really didn't want to get rid of. The demons that say "Come on, let's go online and shoot people". Without that demon, I have the other demon th...

A Backlog Diary: Part 21- inFa-me! inFa-you!

This last week and a half, I have flung myself blindly into a franchise that before I looked on with Major Indifference (salute). Back in 2009, Prototype pretty much rocked my world. It evoked memories of a campy slap-dash an...

Dreaming: Dream on Valve, Capcom and Danny Boyle!

A Backlog Diary: Part 20- I really didn't enjoy Metal Gear Solid 4

This is rather a difficult entry to write, so first, a little on my history with the Metal Gear Solid series. First confession; the first MGS game I played was Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance on the Xbox in 2007. I rather enjoy...

A Backlog Diary: Part 19- Vive le Resistance!

This week, I will be doing two blog entries; one rather short, and one rather long. The short one will be one of praise, carried out by myself, showering love on my latest completed game. The other will be a shower of bile an...

A Backlog Diary: Part 17- Four-eyed so-and-so's and potential genital inadequacy

I'm on a bit of a charge right now. With my internet connection having the conistancy of a Labour MP (that is to say, not very consistant), I have temporarily given up on playing Battlefield 3. Suddenly, things are becoming v...
