Moving on (also, baby bats in blankets!)

With nearly five years of some of the best times of my life under my belt, I can't seem remember a time when I wasn't on this crazy Destructoid train. So this is going to be weird to type: as this month comes to a close, I ...

Questions regarding Bethesda titles Prey 2, Hunted, or Brink?

I'm in Utah this week, learning that being high up in the mountains means that I feel like I've run a marathon if I walk across the street. Pretty neat! I'm here for Bethesda's BFG 2011 event, where we're being shown Prey 2,...

Podtoid DX Championship Edition EX + Alpha 3: The Dream Warriors

About a month ago, the guy who signs my checks (that's Niero) said to me: "Hey, we need to get another podcast off the ground with the site's everyday, core writers. Get it done." He doesn't often demand I do things, so I f...

On being a Spike VGAs judge (bonus: my nominees!)

[Note: This is a first draft ramble about the process; I had originally intended to just dump my choices here and move on. So please forgive any errors or oddities.] Little known fact: to choose the nominees for the VGAs, Sp...

Fallout: New Vegas launch party, game magazines, a baby

So first off, Bethesda has the best fucking stamps. When they sent me a holiday card last December, the stamp had a picture of Vault Boy wearing a Santa Claus hat. Here's the stamp that was on the invite for the upcoming laun...

A tribute to videogame fan films, and a game you NEED to play (but won't).

Firstly, this. Any excuse to watch Escape from City 17, right? Secondly, The Void is currently on sale for half off ($9.99) on Steam, and really deserves to be checked out. Maybe. On the one hand: It's one of the most in...

A new article, and thoughts on The Saboteur (and open world games in general).

Firstly, this is about the most prolific video game movie actors in Hollywood. Two are supermodels. The Saboteur is, to me, an incredibly enjoyable game that isn't actually all that good. While its controls are horrendou...

Behind the scenes: Hamza likes naked dudes

Just another day at the office.

An article on game documentaries, and Assassin's Creed II thoughts

First of all, this. Second of all, I think AC2's ending has to go down in history, alongside the Star Destroyer bit in Force Unleashed, as one of those gameplay moments that sounds absolutely spectacular written down but i...

Holy shit, Kohlstream

I mean, holy shit. These are goddamn amazing. I'm reading the backs of the boxes now, and god damn. And the DVDs actually work in my PC. I'm watching Mortal Kombat as we speak. Thanks, a thousand times thanks.

Regarding depictions of gamers in films, and an unofficial HAWP

<p> Firstly, a top five list about the stupid ways movies portray gamers (and the Digg link if you feel like it). Secondly, the forumites already found it but Ash and I did a scene for the Star Wars Uncut fan project,...

Comparing Japanese and Western video game movies.

Spoiler: Japanese ones tend to be better. Which is odd, because I have the exact opposite opinion when it comes to, like, actual games. Sold Demon's Souls a little while ago, and despite loving the first Way of the Samura...

If you are on this list, you're getting a free HAWP DVD.

This will get a frontpage post very soon, but you should probably know that the HAWP Season One DVD is now available: https://www.createspace.com/274598 And if you're on this list, that means you did art for the DVD that I u...

A followup to my JUMP! review

At the time of writing the review, I hadn't completed the game and thus didn't give it a score. The Dtoid tips line got an angy email from some guy who hilariously ended with "email me back if you want my full review," basi...

The winners of the HAWP DVD fanart contest thing (also, idiocy)

I am the stupidest person in the world, and one of the credits in the fanart menu section on the DVD will be wrong. I am intensely, intensely sorry for this and will try to mention the real artist as frequently as possible wh...

HAWP DVD stuff (also Big Trouble in Little China needs to be a videogame)

You can tell it's true because I wrote an article about it. Just writing about the goddamn thing makes me want to see it again. HAWP DVD UPDATE: I finished the proof and sent it off to CreateSpace. Now I just wait for them ...

I'm gonna be on a live radio show tonight (in case you want to listen).

While the Podtoid crew will be talking about pecs and Super Street Fighter IV tonight, I'm going to be on ChatterBox Video Game Radio at 9 pm Arizona time (in other words, roughly three hours from now). You can listen liv...

The future is now

Wherein I discuss videogame movie technology and how close we are to reaching it in reality. On the subject of future-tech, I just got an iPod touch and am flabbergasted by how willingly people will put up with an intrinsi...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Podcastin': Episode One

Yeah. If you're into it, you can subscribe to it. If you're not, well, we tried.

Videogame movies are trying to kill you. This is fact.

I wrote this article and you could read it if you wanted to. It's about fictional videogames that kill people. Also, Ash and I took these pictures at PAX and gave them to the guys at Rockstar.

My thoughts on the upcoming "Gamer" movie, and Arkham impressions.

I'm leaning toward the assumption that Gamer will suck ass, but there are very small rays of weird, postmodern hope to be found in the basic premise. I went to an Arkham Asylum midnight release with Davis, and spent around...

Bowser's Inside Story localization questions?

Doing an email Q&A for a story on Bowser's Inside Story with Nate Bhildorff, the game’s localization producer. If anyone has anything they'd like answered, let me know! I intend on shooting Nintendo the questions shortly.

Of videogame sequels to classic movies (also, HAWP DVD details)

I wrote an article about videogame sequels to movies that often equal their source material (The Warriors, Tron 2.0, etc). It's here. After next week's HAWP season finale, I'm gonna start working on a season DVD. For no par...

I want to play Space Paranoids.

For reasons outlined here. Also: am I the only person freaking the shit out that Jeff Bridges seems to be a bad guy in the next Tron movie? Will Bruce Boxleitner's son have to take him down, or something? I really liked Kev...

How David Hayter will save us all

I have written an article about how David Hayter could save videogame movies. You can read it at the link I just put in the blog in the previous sentence on this web site blog. So as to prevent this post from being a complete waste of your time, I have included pictures Davis and I took at a crazy-ass Japanese photo machine recently installed at our local arcade. Fucking weeaboos.

Questions for Gearbox's Randy Pitchford?

I'll be speaking with Gearbox Software's CEO Randy Pitchford today about the developers upcoming title Borderlands, among other things industry- and gaming-related. Before I do, I wanted to see if you guys had any specific ...

A new AMC article, and an update on HAWP

This article is about how videogame movies are infecting videogames with their shit quotient. Regarding HAWP -- we could be nearing the end of our first season very soon. Maybe. I'm not sure how it'll turn out. We'll proba...
