Diablo II Hardcore is still addicting after 10+ years

It has been a very, very long time since I've last had a chance to write a blog on Destructoid, so I find it only fitting that I reemerge writing about something that I haven't had a chance to play in many years and have re...

Battle Fantasia: Bunny vs. Viking

Battle Fantasia is a fantastic fighting game brought to you by the creators of Guilty Gear. It is incredibly fun, insanely silly, and nobody seems to play it, or even know about it. I've watched people play on-line matc...

Get me an ambulance named after an 8-bit console! STAT!

(Photo taken outside The Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA) I can just imagine the ice Climbers come out the back to bring the stretcher, Dr. Mario is present for on-site care, and the dude from Excitebike is driving.

I've recently discovered eBay. No, really!

It's been quite the week. As of late, I have recently spent more time scouring eBay and bidding on things more than I ever thought I would. Within the course of just a few days, I have bought the following (with a bit of pa...

Castle Crashers Toys - A Review

I'll take a Rock Band with my Snickers [photo]

The above photo was taken last night using my cell phone at a local Blockbuster Video. I was there to return Clerks and rent Mallrats when I took a look at the candy aisle. Granted, I had done this many times before, but something just didn't seem right... They're friggin' selling Rock Band in the candy aisle these days? Are you fucking kidding me? Need I say anymore? Discuss.

I think I fixed my Guitar Hero lag issue. Here's how:

As some of you may or may not know, I have been having a hell of a time trying to calibrate the lag with GH3. Constant tweaking, recalibrating, tweaking some more was yielding no consistent result. So, just for the hell of ...

In a time of need. In a time of war. In a time of poverty. America needs someone they can turn to to right the wrongs of our current El Presidente. Yes, I am indeed talking about Niero and Ron "Various Nicknames" Workman. ...

WTF?! GH3 "Calibrate Lag" option only calibrates my frustration.

Yep. I'm still screwed when it comes to fixing the lag issues with GH3 on my new set. I own two LG LCDs, and both of them have lag issues with my Elite and GH. I've run the calibrate lag tool a multitude of times, both stru...

Oh, hai! Is it can it be HDTV time now, plz?

Yep. I took the plunge and picked up a sweet 32" LCD HDTV by LG for a cool $599 at Boscov's (LINK) I was a bit worried when we first unpacked and hooked up the badboy, because the sucker's speakers were crackling. Turns o...

My new CBlog Header, Thanks to BlindsideDork.

BlindsideDork was nice enough to answer my call for a new blog header. In fact, he was the only one to actually submit something, so he sort of wins by default. Think you can do better? I'm still accepting any further ideas/...

Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility Hijinks!: Morrowind

This past weekend, Sarah and I went to the local GameStop to look for Morrowind for the original Xbox (in the hopes of playing it on the 360.) Why would we be looking for such an old game, you ask? Well, turns out, Sarah is...

GH3 Boss Battle vs. Lou? I FAIL, and so does he.
