2015: The Year of Linux?

I love Linux. In fact, if I could reliably get my Windows games to run on them, I'd drop Windows like a bad habit. It's faster, it has more user support, nearly every program for it is free, and there are about a thousa...

My parents, the artists

When I was young, I played with a TON of action figures. Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, Batman, Spider-Man, Thundercats... I could make this entire blog just a big list of the action figures I liked. There was a disconcer...

Ralph Baer passes away at 92

The father of video games, Ralph Baer, has passed away at 92 years old. This guy, for those who may not have heard of him, started EVERYTHING. He's the reason we discuss everything on this website and hundreds of others...

Dark Souls II for PS4, XOne and PC DirectX 11 Announced [REPOST: IT SUCKS NOW]

Wow, it looks like FROM is REALLY screwing people with this upgrade. I guess the servers will be split for the console versions, too, but on the PC, they're essentially charging for an engine upgrade. What the hell...

Super Smash Bros. Wii U: One Day In

I've been a huge fan of Super Smash Bros. since the very beginning. I took a chance and picked up the original on the N64 the day it came out, and I've been in love with the series ever since. When the new games were ann...

The Evil Within: Quick PC Thoughts

I was able to get The Evil Within at launch for a pretty good price, so I decided to jump on it. I've only played a little bit of the game, but I wanted to say a few things about the PC version. First, unfortunately, the...

Modding the DualShock 4

I love the DualShock 4. Seriously, it's my favorite controller that I've ever used, and I've used pretty much anything you could name to me, plus a countless number of third-party offerings. In my 26 years of gaming, I've nev...

Five more things about pedrovay2003

Ooh, it's been a while since we've done one of these, hasn't it? Well, we've all had life updates, I'm sure, so let's get to it! (I'm only doing five, since I've done one or two of these in the past.) 1. I've been publishe...

PSA: FlingSmash with Wii Remote Plus $14.97 at Kmart

I guess the guys at Kmart don't know that the Wii Remote is compatible with the Wii U, because they're currently getting rid of all their copies of FlingSmash -- which comes with a black Wii Remote Plus -- for the paltry pr...

Every Steam developer/publisher needs to live up to Monaco

I bought Monaco: What's Yours is Mine during a recent Humble Store sale. I haven't even gotten the chance to play more than two levels of it yet, but I like what I've seen so far. However, I'm not here to review the game. I...

PSA: Sonics 1 and 2 Remastered on sale for 0.99 each

SEGA is having a mobile sale right now, and two of the games I think everyone needs to buy are Sonic The Hedgehog (Android here and iOS here) and Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (Android here and iOS here). Yes, the Genesis games. But...

A short tribute to The Super Mario Bros. Super Show

In 2009, the gaming world lost Captain Lou Albano, the wrestler-turned-actor who played Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. It was really sad for me in particular, because I had met Albano a few times when I lived in...

Humble PSA: Batman: Arkham Asylum and Scribblenauts Unlimited are DRM-free

This isn't going to be a long blog, but I wanted to let people know of my excitement anyway. Two of the Humble Bundle's games right now are DRM-free, even though they need to be downloaded through Steam. Scribblenauts Unli...

PSA: Outlast is now available DRM-free

I've been holding off on Outlast since it's release, because it was only available through Steam. Well, that's no longer the case, as the game is now available DRM-free through GOG.com, A.K.A. the why-isn't-this-website-the...

Steam on Mac is the way to go

For those of you who have read anything I've posted to Destructoid, you'll know that the title of this blog is completely out of character for me. I can't stand Apple, and I'm constantly talking about how much I can't stand...

Microsoft's DRM reversal is the biggest victory for consumers in recent memory.

I've said -- more than once -- that one of the main differences between PC gamers and console gamers is that console gamers won't take the same restrictive shit that PC gamers seem to so often be just fine with. Well, if to...

Sony knocked it out of the friggin' park (Shortblog)

It's appropriate that Sony's conference was after Microsoft's, because it seems like EVERYTHING they said and did was tailored specifically to counter everything Microsoft said to piss its former customers off. No online ...

My Xbox One Thoughts

It's called the Xbox One. ONE, not Three. It looks like a VCR that will blind you if you look at it too long. It forces you to pay for a Kinect, something nobody wanted in the first place. It requires an Internet connectio...

My Excitement for the Ouya is Through the Roof

I have a confession to make: As much as I love new technology, I couldn't give any less of a crap about having the latest smartphone. This Blackberry knockoff is the phone I've had for the last five years, and I love it. I ...

You're a Bad Person for Enjoying SimCity

Did the title get your attention? Good. It’s supposed to. Now, before you get all huffed over yet another blog about the failures of Maxis, I’ll tell you the good news: This isn’t about SimCity. It includes SimCity, but S...

Magic and Gunpower: Shadowrun Returns First Impressions

“Watch your back, shoot straight, conserve ammo and never, ever cut a deal with a dragon.” Those are the words that every shadowrunner knows by heart. To some they were the first words that greeted them when they cracked o...

Growing Up Gamer

For the four or five of you who remember, my last article was an overview of Ys Origins. In that article, I briefly mentioned an encounter back in the day with a game the US knows as Wanderers From Ys III. Well, after wri...

Indie Cred: Ys Origin - All Along The Watchtower

If you’re a gamer in the US, likely your only encounter with the Ys brand before this era would have been with Wanderers from Ys for the SNES. It was certainly my first experience, and one that has stuck with me since the day...

Okay, okay... PS4 impressions

So, Sony's big PS4 blowout is finally finished, and I've got to say, I've never really felt more lukewarm toward a console release in my life. I don't know if I'm just losing interesting in gaming in general, or if it's the...

My Personal Trek into the New Generation

The Wii U marked the beginning of a new console generation of video games, with Microsoft and Sony's offerings soon to follow. This past generation gave us some great games, but it left kind of a bad taste in my mouth conce...

The Evolution of Dead Space: Why Going from Horror to Action is the Natural Path

*minor spoilers may be ahead* I want to go on the record here and say that I absolutely LOVE horror. I never used to; It was the movie, Signs, of all things, that got me hooked on the genre. The Resident Evil series was my...

Dare To Be Badass: Project Development Part 2

Hey Destructoidians, Returner Mike here once again with the thrilling second episode of my special, ‘So Your Rampant Insanity Has Driven You To Create Something’. Last post dealt with what I like to call ‘cruel reality’. Th...

Herding Cats or: Running a Game Development Group

Apologies, but this’ll be a long one. About a year ago, I received a strange notification. An offhand remark that I enjoyed writing in my free time had caught someone’s attention on one of the more popular social media blog...

Welcome back to 2007! Comparing the 360 and PS3 one last time

Kind of relevant? When multiple new consoles are released in the same general window of time, people can't help but make comparisons. Hell, people compare consoles to other consoles even if there are YEARS between launches....

The Chronic- What? -cles of Valkyria!

So after some confusion with Amazon (and possibly the most amazing customer service experience I’ve ever encountered in my life) I finally got 2008’s critically acclaimed Valkyria Chronicles. While this game has been review...
