Long time, Dtoid, and: vote for best PS2 games.

Listen, Iíll be honest with you here: I didnít start a blog because I care that you hear my opinion. I care more about your opinion. I know what youíre thinking: ďBrilliam, you sure picked a weird format to use if you wanna h...

I might have mentioned Every Game Ever on here before, but in case I am retarded and didn't, or you, dear reader, didn't read any of my crap before this, Every Game Ever is a place where I and several friends are making blog ...

Meaningful Review Scores

Hey, Destructoid. Sorry it's been a while since I've written anything; I got laid off, and was unemployed, and went home to Ottawa for a week, where I had precious little web time, then started a new job back in Montreal. In ...

Random Crap I Been Working On Roundup!

Sup, 'toiders? Been a while, hasn't it? I have been neglecting the crap outta this blog because I've been working on so much other stuff recently. My main blog is still busy but I'll probably be cross-posting the really rele...

My top ten games, '08

Yeah, yeah, I know, nobody cares... just figured i'd give the ol' dtoid blog some love since more people read this than read brilli.am/writes where this was originally posted. To see it on my blog, click here (not that you ne...

Good pick on L4d, Dtoid. THE WAY-TOO-LATE RESPONSE FORM BRIZNILLIAM!

I started writing a response to Dtoid's GOTY when it came out, but then I had to leave the city for Xmas and forgot to finish it. Well, here it is, to those who'd still read something based on an almost-week-old story. Left ...

I met up with Dtoiders in NYC! For Blip! It was AMAZING!

This post is incredibly late due to the fact that I was busy catching up with real life (since I didn't really get online, since I was in NYC for five days...). But... wow, I love Dtoiders. I love NYC. I love Blip. (To read...

REcording the first ep of "A Fistful Of Tokens" podcast. Please respond to the "user question of the week!"

Hey everyone, my buddies and I are doing a new podcast this week called "A Fistful Of Tokens," which is basically going to be the videogame equivalent of the BBC Radio 5 sports show "Fighting Talk." More or less, it's a pan...

DEAR DESTRUCTOID, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE NUMBER 5

Hey, it's Brilliam. Remember me? I used to write a bunch of stuff. Recently I've been writing for my own blog on my own website, brilli.am/writes, but that's not what I am here to talk about today. I wanna talk about somethin...

Stop Saying Retro.

I posted this to my blog, brilli.am/writes, and figure I'd post it on my c-blog too, because I have ignored it for FAR too long. I hope you like! Before I begin, I'd just like to applaud the gaming blogosphere for their ha...

REVIEW: All Of The Final Fantasy Games

I wrote this a while ago for The Spoilerist which is a site that we wrote fake reviews and stuff with the intention of baiting people into thinking we were idiots. I will probably post it there sometime, but in the meantime, ...

Final Fantasy Tactics A2 is a Mediocre Relationship

I haven't "finished" Final Fantasy Tactics A2, yet. I have, however, at the time of this writing, logged approximately 105 hours-- far more than I thought I would ever spend on this game. It's something I repeated to myself, ...

Brilliam (+ Friend) in your NYC For Blip Festival! Lend me your Couch/floor/etc! [NVGR]

So, Blipfest is happening from December 4-8. I couldn't do PAX, due to time/money constraints, but I'm not making that mistake again! I will be there, assuming all of my passport shit works out. My friend is also coming up....

Why You Gotta Get Out There And Vote! [Mildly VGR]

I recently had a conversation (well, not really a conversation: it was on Twitter. More of a... word or two exchanged) with both Samit and Zen Albatross about voting, and whether or not there's a point to doing so. You see,...

My Turning Point Gaming Rig!

Okay, so I'm probably not going to play Turning Point on it, but I recently got a new computer. I only have one picture... but it's totally awesome. Hi there, my name is Brilliam, and I am about to brag, so if you are not int...

Instant Replay: Artificial Intelligence

When I play a game, immersion is key. As stupid as it sounds, I don't want to be constantly reminded that I'm playing a video game; I like to fully drop myself into everything, and live it, as if its physics and parameters ...

Actionbutton.net Tears Into Braid, Refuses to Score it

I'm sure I'm not the first to say it, but I utterly love the words at actionbutton.net. They're few and far between, but their level of insight is never eclipsed elsewhere. They are never afraid to hate a game that's critical...

Tom Clancy's Gentrification: Ubisoft's Mile End Neighborhood To Be 'Revitalized'

Ubisoft is playing a major role in the redevelopment of Montreal's historic Mile End district-- and not letting anyone know what they're up to. The Mile End neighborhood is a four-block sector that used to house the city's b...

From The Vault: I Review Advanced Dungeons and Dragons - Eye of the Beholder for the SNES.

Get ready for this, because I am about to go all delusions of grandeur on your asses, but wow. There must be a God, and he must be toying with me. I set upon my epic quest top play video games and write about them to my slave...

More reviews from Brilliam's "Everygame!"

As promised, the second batch of old game reviews I wrote for my old soon-to-be-resurrected Wordpress blog. Hey Dtoid brass, if you're reading, I can always do this for you insteeeeaaaaddd... ;) ;) ;) HIRE ME! *WINK!* But, s...

Once, I started playing all of the SNES games... alphabetically. And blogging it.

Once, a long long time ago, I set off to play every single US-released SNES game, one a day, until I had played them all. Then I was going to blog about each one of them. I got about thirty of them, but then my girlfriend got...

My Uncle's Box of Pirated Games: Dynamite Dux

When I was about eight or nine years old, my uncle decided he didn't need the Commodore Amiga 500 in his parent's house any more, and, since I didn't have a computer with any games on it, gave it to me. My house wasn't a part...

Video Game Documentary "Second Skin" Review

Every year in Montreal, an awesome film festival called Fantasia kicks off. It features everything a nerd craves during the warm summer months; cheap ($7 Canadian) tickets to sit in a dark, air-conditioned room full of geek...

C.S.S. CREW, ASSEMBLE! Chad Sweater Solidarity!

I am sorry, Mr. Concelmo, but nothing about your sweater sounds anything less than amazing. Maybe my opinion is skewed since I'm from Montreal where it's cool to wear stuff that is awesome, unlike L.A. where it's cool to wear...

What I Like To Play When I Drink

If there are two things I like to do, it's drink and play video games. The two rarely cross; most of the people I hang out with in this city, sadly, are not "gamers" so the Wii never comes out at parties or what have you. How...

The "Art vs. Craft" argument. Does it fit into gaming?

I've been sitting on this entry for a long, long time... it's pretty art-nerdy so if you can't get into that just don't bother reading, dig? Also: it's spoiler-free. So don't sweat it. Peaches and I got into a... well, I don...

Tales Of Etrian Odyssey

Alack, it has indeed been ages since my last correspondence, dear Destructoid. Too long. For about three weeks I ahve been sitting on a nearly finished entry about art in games, but I haven't had the wherewithal or, dare I sa...

Where Did It All Go Wrong? #1: Mortal Kombat

With the recent news of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, now seemed a good a time as any for me to start my new series, "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" I'll attempt to map the decline of franchises, be it commercially, critically, ...

Midnight Opening: The Fake-Live-Blog (no GTA IV game discussion)

Hey, this article contains NO reference to GTA IV's actual game, but does mention the insanity endured while buying it. If you are not playing it for a while (Necros, Dexter, Conrad), nothing in here will spoil anything. Thi...
