The Gunblade – Videogames vs. History

Whilst I would never consider myself a violent man, I find weapons fascinating. Whether they are a work of fiction or non-fiction, I see them as curious inventions that say a great deal about our species. Our History is ...   more



Making Music - My Sonic Arsenal

Hello, friends. I wanted to write this blog for a while, but it's difficult to get my thoughts together on this particular subject. As you know, I write music. I do it for fun, not for money. I've spent thousands of doll...   more

Do We Need Assassin’s Creed Anymore?

So my brother picked up a copy of Assassin’s Creed: Unity on day one, because of course he did.  And he asked me to play through it from start to finish, because of course he did.  And I played it for no...   more



First Impressions: Mario Kart 8 DLC

So, it's finally here. Having pre-ordered the DLC back in September, I've been (chain)chomping at the bit to get to try out the new Mario Kart DLC, and I have to say, it doesn't disappoint. Given how open Ninte...   more

The Completion of an Album | Creative Process

Good day, friends. As part of a goal I'm trying to keep up with (one of many), I'm going to try to write more blogs. The only thing is, I can only really write about what I know. All I really "know" is music, at least, e...   more

Gaming and Misbehaving: Spore and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

I swear on my honour that I can be a sensible gamer. I do know how to play games properly. It's just that, now and then, I am compelled to ignore the path the game has laid out for me. It's why people think I'm so cool a...   more

Why Do People Love Monster Hunter?

So everyone here knows what “serendipity” means, right?  Pared down to basics, you can think of it as a synonym for “coincidence”.  In my case, though?  It tends to mean that someb...   more

​Gaming and Misbehaving: Dishonored

Gamers do as they are told. Video games set the rules, and we follow them. When a game says "jump", we press the jump button. We will run, fight and sometimes dance when the game demands it. We play the game as intended....   more

Without Mii

Crystal shards!/Real Game No Gimmicks! Two veteran girls fight round the outside! Round the outside! Round the outside! Guess who's back! Back again! Wii U's back! Tell a friend! Guess who's back/Guess who's back/Guess ...   more

Dry your eyes, it's just goodbyes.

I'm trying hard not to make this overly dramatic.  I'm not even going to spell out my exact reasons why.  I'm just giving everyone who cares to read this what they deserve for taking the time to listen over th...   more



In defence of Robocop 2

It's not strictly a 'game' thing, but fuck it. It's got guns, violence, dudes in power armour, and it had several videogame tie-ins on its release. It counts.  Anyways... certain schools of thought would have you be...   more

What Should Really Anger Gamers?

Dear Video Gamers, are you angry? Is the thing you're irritated by on this list? No? Then you're probably fuming about the wrong thing. You silly person. Don't go wasting your time incensed by anything else! #1: Bloopers...   more



Weird Theory: Do Pokémon have a greater purpose?

There's something slightly odd about the world of Pokémon. It's not the hundreds of animals with elemental powers and supernatural abilities. No, that all makes perfect sense when you think about it. It's the worl...   more



Super Smash Bros.: The Final Hope

Have you ever woken up one morning and thought to yourself, “Wow!  I’ve been a fan of this ongoing franchise for the majority of my life!  Spectacular!”  Yeah.  That was me not too ...   more

What Are Video Games For?

Alternate post title: DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRp. All right, let’s be real here.  I’m pretty sure that by this point, I’ve made no shortage of my opinions known.  Some of ...   more



I just don't get the competitive Smash 'thing'...

A title like that is of course a fighting statement, so I'd best get me some good fighting music going in the background... It's weird though. I know that Smash has got a big following in the fighting game community...   more

Calling All Gamers – Step Up and Have Your Opinions Heard

I realize that I haven’t posted in awhile, but I have a valid excuse. Who has two thumbs and is finalizing a Master’s Project in videogame violence? Actually no. That’s Borat and it’s me that is ...   more



Paul McCartney is crap. Better pop songs that should have been used in games...

So, have you heard that new song Paul McCartney recorded for Destiny? It's a bit crap. Vacuous lyrics about nothing in particular, dull arrangement, and for some reason every instrument is drenched in enough reverb ...   more

How do Games remind us that we are Weak and Feeble?

Games are fun, but I sometimes get the impression they don't like us all that much. It doesn't matter how many times you have levelled up or how many weapons you have strapped across your chest; the game is in charge and...   more



My unfavourite game: Morrowind

See, with all these blogs going up about the community's various favourite games, I thought I'd try something a little different. A piece on my most unfavourite game of all time. Morrowind. The high point of the Elder Sc...   more

How Does Your Game Keep You Contained? Part 2

The hero seeks a new adventure. Every Mutant Ewok of the Decidedly-Evil Forest has been murdered; the Casually Racist Imps have each been forcefully evicted from the Cave of Moaners; the hero has made so many Dragon's Teeth n...   more



How stuff works Part 1: Editorial and Advertising

It's a funny old business. Funny old world, really. All a bit topsy turvy at the moment. Like everyone's running around stomping their feet everywhere, and the result is no-one quite knows where the floor is anymore.   I'm g...   more

So How Do You “Idealize” Female Characters?

It’s been a while since I’ve tossed a post up on Destructoid.  Let’s change that…with yet another ill-advised discussion on gender politics in video games!  Rejoice, sort of!  Or, alternatively, despair!   There was an arti...   more

10 Games that should be in Games

It’s late August and the specter of autumn is upon us. Soon, we can expect shorter days, cooler air, the changing of the leaves and all that bullshit that comes with the turn of the seasons. Of course, if you live in the sout...   more

How Does Your Game Keep You Contained? Part 1

A lone hero seeks adventure in a dangerous world. In one hand they clasp an ancient sword made from the devil's weirdest nightmares. In the other hand they hold a giant handgun so powerful that it doesn't need to be loaded to...   more

Dad Goes Overboard When Teaching Sons the Truths of War

Sweden is a fine country. The people who live there are tall, blonde, and beautiful. Sweden has also given the world savory meatballs, affordable yet stylish modern furniture, award winning swimsuit teams, lutefisk, and bisex...   more



Do You Care for Quick Time Events?

I love Quick Time Events. There, I said it. Don’t worry; I’m aware that bad QTEs exist. After all, gamers often state categorically that they “love video games” knowing full well that bad games exist. Similarly, I’m fond of Q...   more

School Trips to Game Worlds: A Space Station for All Subjects

Two weeks ago, I argued the case for an educational visit to Rapture. Last week, I set my sites on Neo-Paris. The third video game location I have in mind would probably make for the best school trip ever. Practically ever...   more



​School Trips to Game Worlds: Who fancies a Sci-Fi Croissant?

After finishing my first playthrough of Assassin's Creed 2, I was left with a singular thought etched into my mindset. It was not the idea of being an assassin – what it would be like to run across roof troops and leap from i...   more

School Trips to Game Worlds: Where would you go?

Two weeks ago I was on a school trip in Berlin. Each time I go on this trip (this was the fifth time) a student looks up at the Reichstag building, turns to me and demands to know if that was the building 'they' assaulted at ...   more
