What’s the Best-Looking Game You’ve Ever Seen?

There’s been a lot to talk about since this past E3, but you know what’s piqued my interest the most?  Street Fighter 5.  As I’ve said in the past, the only trailers/footage I’ve grown ...

Why Shenmue is better than Jesus and you’re an idiot if you disagree.

There's a lot of discussion about Shenmue 3 and Kickstarter lately, but there is only one correct opinion. So shut the fuck up for a minute and learn something, you asshole. You’re skeptical about Shenmue 3. You d...

Let's objectively talk about Heavensward. (WARNING: 100% objective)

On Final Fantasy and Lost Empathy

So does anyone here watch The Middle? I’ve seen some of it, in my quest to fill the hole left by the long-since-finished How I Met Your Mother.  I can’t say I’m in love with The Middle, and I have...

The Success of Nintendo’s Wii 2 – A Retrospective

A crash in Wii software sales led Nintendo to need a new console a full year before Sony and Microsoft’s new hardware releases. While this was an awkward situation, it was also an advantage for Nintendo. After seve...

Pokemon & the wider audience

I used to work in a GAME store here in the UK for a period of around 20 months or so up until June 2013. While the salary side of it eventually made me move on elsewhere, obviously being into games I was rather in my ele...

The trouble with the market.

Remember in the first Matrix movie when Neo and Morpheus are discussing the Matrix world? Morpheus says something to the effect of: you know something is wrong with the world, you've felt it for years, it's in the back o...

Ask me a question, tell me to state my prime directives

Since Occams and Pixie both did one of these I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon as well because I'm unoriginal and shameless sometimes. Plus it gives me an excuse to post a new cBlog since I haven't done too many ...

Why I ♥ Destructoid

Like most of you here, I'm pretty obessed with gaming. It's something that I think a lot about. I do reviews, I think about what companies could do to fix their woes, listen to podcasts about gaming, and among my friends...

Bayonetta 2 is secretly brilliant.

In the first fifteen seconds of the game, you’re treated to a slow-motion shot of Bayonetta that -- of course -- pans straight down to her crotch.  Barely a minute later, you’re commandeering and piloti...

10 Things + 10 Comparsions about Me + Sure Ask Me Anything :p

I read Mr Andy Dixon's blog and it inspired me to make a similar one. It's difficult for me to come up with 10 things about myself, because there's a lot to know about me. I'm going to compare myself to Andy's list of 10...

Hey look! Vergil gameplay from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition

Holy shit! Seph posted a blog! Capcom released some gameplay showing off Vergil in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. I sent a tip to Destructoid about it, but nothing has popped up on the front page about it and I'm impatient as hell to talk about some of this crazy shit. And here's a couple of GIFs I found from the video, because I'm a nice guy.

Do We Need Final Fantasy Anymore?

But first, a preliminary question: how relevant is Final Fantasy Type-0? I admit I haven’t been looking around all that much to gauge responses, but my guess -- or maybe fear -- is that people have chosen to ignor...

Why I love fighting games

I've heard gamers tell me they don't like fighting games. And I look at them with this face that says "They still make you?". (I say in jest, even the most hardcore among us have genre's games that we have a hard time ap...

I can dream: Warhammer x Dynasty Warriors

If you're anything like me, you really enjoyed Space Marine. Like, really, really enjoyed it. I think we all know that from a mechanical and technical standpoint it wasn't anything outstanding, but my god did it nail the...

Smash Bros vote: The case for Bomberman

As soon as I heard about the poll for additional characters in Smash Bros. 4 I resigned myself to the likely fate that Bomberman won't be selected. There are far more popular and in demand characters around that command ...

Let's break the internet together!

I'm stepping out of character for a second. Anyone who doesn't like it is a fat, one-armed comedian. Also an idiot. There's a battle raging right on the internet right now. Wait, I mean there are a hundred million battle...
