Diary of a Gamer Dad: Weeks One to Three

The last blog I posted was on April 12 of this year, and it dealt with my thoughts about becoming a soon-to-be father and how this would affect my gaming habits. I won't go in to too much detail on what happened between then ...   0

Being out of the loop and why that's ok.

The loop, that is to say the 'inner circle' of knowledge pertaining to any particular subject at present time, is a state in which you can find yourself feeling irrelevant on a near hourly basis. Attaining this continuous s...   0

Road Rash: The Novel - A Review

Back in the early 1990s I was a big Sega fanboy. I was the proud owner of a Sega Megadrive (Genesis for the American readers out there), and as a diehard Sega fan I regularly purchased Sega gaming magazines. One of my favouri...   0

Rainy Games

I love rain. I love the sound of rain, especially on a tin roof. I love watching rain as it trickles down a window. I love the earthy smell of a rain shower after a hot day. I love how soothing rain is, and how relaxing it ca...   0

Dtoid Memories: Discovering Dtoid

In January 2011 I got married to the love of my life. No, I didn't get married to video games. I got married to a real, human woman! We decided not to take a honeymoon straight after the marriage. Instead, we planned to wait ...   0

The Dreaded Backlog - I am not talking about what I had for dinner last night

What is it about the pursuit of gaming as a hobby that leads me to continually buy games when I know well enough that there is already a growing stack of other games waiting for me back home? Is it the reassuring voice in t...   0

Ultima VII: My Journey Begins

PAX Australia: I will be in you....

Suspension of Disbelief: Broken

Cross-Buy Bye? The perils of Cross-Buy-ing a game.

I should note that I am currently working in Hong Kong but am native to England so the games available to me, and their release dates, might be different to you. With the release of the Playstation Vita, Sony unveiled a ha...   0

Is that a Vita in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

So, I now own a PlayStation Vita. I've been interested in the handheld since before it was released, the sheer power of the thing made my nipples tingle in anticipation. I didn't buy one on launch, mainly because I had a long...   0

Gaming Update: "I'll kill your dicks!"

My favourite gaming moment from the last week... speeding along as Optimus Prime in vehicle form in Transformers: War For Cybertron, jumping and changing back into robot form in mid-air, and then powersliding along when I hit the ground. It honestly made me laugh out loud with joy when I realised you could do that.   0
