Making some progress with my videogame writing

Hello fellow Dtoiders, If you remember my last post here on the Cblogs, you know that I have become a videogame writer. Since I started out in this very community, I occasionally come back to you in order to tell y...

Im back and Ive brought presents!

Wow, I haven't posted something in here for almost two years? Man... Don't worry, I have not been gone completely. In between, I wrote stories for the Destructoid main site for a few months and became a journalist for a nati...

My personal 'Games I love that are generally overlooked'-list for 2012

So, hello there! Long time no see, I know. I've been quite busy, thanks to my new job as a full-time journalist. Still, I need to blog from time to time, and as it's the end of the year, I guess I have to pick my games of the...

Videogames make me feel younger... and I'm cool with that

One of the weirdest things about hitting your mid-20s is, that you feel young and like a teenager in some areas while fully realizing that you're actually getting old. Not old in objective terms, but you certainly feel a cert...

Dear videogame industry, we need to talk...

You keep on disappointing me! Not everyone in the industry, mind you, but a select few that make me feel sad on a regular basis create a feeling of distrust and dislike for you as an industry. Maybe I should explain to my dea...

Movies, videogames and (un)reasonable expectations

Hello there, it's me. Yes, I know, I have been gone for quite some time now, haven't I? Why? I was kind of busy working for a gaming website and now I'm working for another Gaming Website, that focuses on Sega and thus gives ...

EUFNF March 32nd - Community Edition

Holy Crap, I haven't done this in quite some time. I sure hope I'm not too much out of shape. So, EUFNF is a thing that happens every Friday. People from all over Europe or indeed anywhere join up in order to shoot, punch and...

100 Hours of Civilization 5: A conclusion of sorts

Civilization has been one of those series that never left my side since I first started playing them. I think I was 12 when I started playing the second one, with its somewhat simplistic graphics and unbalanced gameplay. It w...

My Experience as a Videogame Reviewer, Month 6

You know, it's somewhat unsettling and surprising to me that after six months, I'm still doing this job. Writing a videogame review week after week after week, just like any other daily routine I have. If I had a time machine...

Groundhog Day: No More Heroes (slightly NSFW!)

'No More Heroes' is definitely my Groundhog Day game. There are many reasons for me returning again and again to this game since it was released in Europe in March 2008. Considering that I've already written some blog-posts a...

No more heroes, indeed!

This is probably not news to anybody anymore, but Activision actually decided to finish off its Hero-franchises. No more Guitar Hero, no more DJ Hero, and my guess is no more Band Hero too, because frankly, who bought that? S...

My Experience as a videogame reviewer, Month 5: Getting in touch!

It's already the fifth month in my videogame-reviewing career, and things aren't exactly slowing down. Sure, the review process takes less and less time, mostly because I'm now able to write a pretty nice review in about 20 m...

The Bilingual Blog, Introduction: Why the heck two languages?

Okay, here a little intro: I will try to make a blog-series here on Destructoid in two languages. The first part will be in German, and right after that, I will give you the English translation. Why would I do that? Partly be...

My Experiences as a Videogame Reviewer: Month 4

Optional title this time would be: The jump online. Now, unfortunately for those who read these little blogs on my Reviewer and writer career, most of the stuff I produce has been in German and not available online. Well, go...

My Experiences as a videogame reviewer: Month 3

All I can say is: WOW. Holy crap, already three months in this business? Time really flies by, since I have to manage University and the reviewer stuff at the same time. Busy-Bee indeed... So, general lessons this month? Wel...

Sidequests of a reviewer

... or What the heck have I been playing besides the stuff I have to review for my side-job? That title would have been too long. If haven't done so, check out my other pieces about my two first months as a videogame review...

Some (Spoiler-free) thoughts on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

This should have been a little Review on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, but I really just want to communicate my general impressions, so I won't call it a review. I have pretty much ignored this game for quite a long tim...

My first experiences as a videogame reviewer

As some of you might know, I have become a freelance videogame reviewer for a daily newspaper in my country. Don't bother asking me which one etc. I'm not going to tell you, but I still wanna share a bit of my personal expe...

An open letter to Mr. Sakamoto

Dear Mr. Sakamoto, Before I get started, I want to tell you how much I loved Super Metroid, which I completed only a few days ago. It is one of the few games I would essentially call flawless. It is the first side-scrolling...

My first time with: Super Metroid

Now this took a long time. I finally beat Super Metroid for the very first time. Damn, I can still remember my first try, which I actually described in one of my very first C-Blogs. Why does it always take me so long to do th...

EUFNF September 17th - A Deadly Premonition Indeed!

This week of EUFNF (European Friday Night Fights) is pretty much limited to Halo:Reach. What a surprise! But still, Tarvu is planing on doing some stuff on PC, so you might want to stalk him for a bit about that. Have fun, ev...

EUFNF September 10th: HALO HALO HALO Edition!

So, apparently we are playing Halo 3 on EUFNF (European Friday Night Fights) tonight, since we will be playing Helo: Rech next week. I don't know why this should make any sense to you, but Tarvu said I should write this, so ...

Podsumaki records in about 10 minutes!

That's right! KD, Rab, and de BLOO will be talking about shit again. We will probably talk about Street Fighter X Tekken, power rangers and Super Street Fighter IV once more. `But if our listeners want us to discuss other facets of the genre then please drop a comment, we will answer one and all. I leave you with this.

EUFNF July 30th

Oh Hi! It' EUFNF time again, and I'm not too sure, if I'm going to be able to join you people... but don't let that interfere with your gaming plans, people of Destructoid. In this edition of the European Friday Night Fight, ...
