Who finds Mileena sexy, anyway?

Recent comments made by Howard Stern, an American radio host and prominent ‘shock jock‘, provoked anger in me. I realise how idiotic that sounds -- ’shock jocks’, after all, are apparently dedicated to provoking anger and res...

Gordon Freeman: should The One Free Man be given a voice?

Gordon Freeman is the working man’s theoretical physicist. Despite spending more time caving in the skulls of aliens/military forces/Combine than bending the laws of physics, Freeman is evidently a genius despite appearing to...

Escapism

For five days of the week, I go to school. There, I study with quiet dedication, stopping occasionally to participate in some light-hearted banter. After school, I go home. I haunt the internet and I play games. At some point...

The beginning of a game is its highest point

Before you stretches infinity, your view of the horizon only interrupted by the jagged black skeletons of ruined skyscrapers in the distance, and the swirling dust blown about by the rattling wind which roams the Capital Wast...

Immersion: Portal (one little spoiler)

['Immersion' is a series which I am hoping to kick-start with my post on Portal. However, as I'm in the middle of a hectic diet of examinations 'Immersion' may simply wither away. Oh noes!] Portal’s Aperture Science Enrichme...

David Cage -- revolutionary?

David Cage is, undoubtedly, a very talented man. A very talented man with a clear vision -- a vision which he pursues with each game he releases. However, David Cage’s visions jar with the ideas of those who kickstarted the g...

Aaamaazing!: Fallout: New Vegas soundtrack -- Mountain Day

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for the pretentious nonsense printed below. Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas has cemented itself in my metaphorical heart as one of my favourite games of all time. New Vegas told a devastati...

Kinect needs to bridge the gap between the casual and the hardcore -- fast

The future of the Xbox 360 is looking bright. The little white box that could is ploughing ahead and, arguably, leading the market at the moment. A host of talented developers have created games for the Xbox 360 and this stre...

The Quiet One

I’ve been revisiting the floating wreck of the space-faring USG Ishimura this week. I discovered my neglected copy of Dead Space lurking around in my bedroom looking up at me with metaphorical puppy-dog eyes and a thick coat ...

Fiction is fiction. Reality, however, is not

The power of fiction should never be underestimated. Fiction, is, if you like, the most powerful gaming engine ever devised -- universes can be created within this vast, cavernous space; rulebooks can be rewritten or simply t...

Point Lookout: DLC done well

A few days ago, my arguments for and against the very existence of DLC crept into the Community Blogs. In this post, I dismissed Dead Space 2’s ‘Severed’ DLC -- a bold move for someone who hasn’t yet experienced said addition...

DLC: Clichéd Arguments For and Against

Before we get started, I should probably mention that the entirety of this article is a big, fat cliché. A big, Gabe Newell of a cliché concerning the equally-loved and equally-maligned method of digital distribution known as...

Reflections on Oblivion; Hopes for Skyrim

Because I found kjptx1998’s post on Bethesda’s Oblivion to be sadly lacking in content (although full of potential), I decided I would hijack his/her idea and manipulate it -- hopefully -- for the better. What follows is a co...

Technical Difficulties: Player choice and how it affects gameplay

March’s Monthly Musing is all to do with game difficulty. As a new user, I wanted to write a little something on this subject with a fresh twist and an appropriately lengthy, intellectual-sounding title. This twist on the sub...

An Apologetic Introduction

One thing I know about Destructoid from careful outside observation is that the Community Blogs are regularly swamped by new users introducing themselves and attempting to integrate with the community. I am such a user, and I...

The Obligatory PAX Prime CBlog

You can tell it's been too long since I posted a Community Blog as it took me ten fucking minutes to find the right page! Anyway, never mind all that bollocks because I'm trying to talk about PAX Prime! Last week was my firs...

Jim Sterling (that's me) interviewed on Machinima's Inside Gaming

To say I've been doing a lot of fucking talking lately is putting it mildly. Here is another interview I did, which actually happened very shortly after the fallout of the Final Fantasy XIII review and the hate campaign ins...

Your old pal Sterling on ScrewAttack's Sidescroller's podcast

HI GANG! I appeared on ScrewAttack's Sidescrollers podcast this week to discuss my "Videogame 'fans' need to shut up about everything" editorial. I chat to Destin L and Stuttering Craig about fandom, old school games, and Sonic's legs being too long. Quite a fun little debate and hopefully it is interesting to people. Check it out here: SIDESCROLLERS OMG Hope you like it!

So guess what was in my closet ...

Seriously. That was in the closet in our apartment. I've been here almost a year and I did not know there was a Dreamcast just lying around in a closet. This is both amazing and ludicrous. I think it belonged to my stepso...

Everything on Wikipedia is literally true

For some reason, I have a Wikipedia page. Despite the fact it has numerous issues and has been vandalized countless times, it's managed to stay up for about a year. I do not know why. Anyway, people who think about me and my ...

Why I Love Destructoid

1: Any other Web site would have fired me by now. Seriously. The amount of times my long-suffering Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester has to talk to me about the latest ruckus I've caused and the latest phone call he's received abo...

Those About to Die: Kilik

Here's the prick. Kilik is the physical manifestation of fear to me. It all started back in 2005 when Soulcalibur III was released for the ps2. Some friends of mine mentioned something along the lines of "renting Soulcali...

First Jimpressions: Killzone 2

After much patient waiting, Killzone 2 finally arrived this afternoon and I have been spending the afternoon wallowing in its gray space fascism. We'll be bringing you a review as soon as we're able, but I thought I thought I...
