Video Review: State of Decay

http://www.destructoid.com//ul/user/3/36745-269703-stateofdecaylogojpg-620x.jpg State of Decay is a game...a game about zombies...there haven't been many of those...right? Of course the truth is, there are FAR too many zombie games on the market. The real question; is State of Decay worth the $20 or is this one twitching corpse you should avoid? Let's watch and see!

Destructoid Video Review: Remember Me

Here is a quick video version of Jim Sterling's review of Remember Me. THIS IS NOT MY WORK!! I only edited together the footage and recorded the review that was written by Jim.  Some people like to digest reviews better in video form, so I figured I do my part as a D'toid fan and convert the review into a video. Please enjoy.

Violence: Simply Another Tool

Hidden Game Gems: Episode 2 (Licensed Edition)

WARNING! VIDEO CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT (Violence / Gore) It's that time again. I took a little bit of time to look through my catalogue of games, reached in and pulled out three gems. This time I'm focusing on licensed games. Licenses games, more of then than not, are pretty crappy. Not these though. These shirked the norm and managed to be quality titles. Please enjoy.

Doing A Solid For EA: Promoting Dead Space 3's Awesome Story (SPOILERS)

It came to my attention that while Dead Space 3 was listed as the top dog in sales it is, however, doing less than stellar compared to Dead Space 2. So to correct this injustice I've taken the liberty of throwing EA a bone in...

Video Review: Don't Starve (Beta)

It's important to note that the game is still under development and likely has a number of improvements in store for future updates. That being said, please enjoy our early beta review of Don't Starve. A game where starvation, ironically, is the least likely thing to kill you.

Simcity Fiasco Video Response [Opinion]

EA's handling of Simcity has been one of the biggest cluster-poops in recent memory. It's one thing to have a problem, fess up to it and try to fix it...but it's an entirely different thing to act like there's no problem at all and come up with excuses. This is just a quick video discussing the ramifications of the botched launch. PS: Shot with my super crappy MacBook Pro iSight camera.

Arcadecraft Video Review

Let's take a moment and pretend that it's the 1980's and arcades aren't just a relic of a lost generation. Now, imagine you're in charge of one such arcade. Sound like fun? You'll just have to watch the video review and find out if the XBLIG title "Arcadecraft" is a thriller, or just a broken heart of glass.

Please enjoy. PS: Eff the dogs

Why critics are wrong about Aliens: Colonial Marines

The console keeps the fun going... and going... and going. If you were fortunate enough to buy a copy of Aliens: Colonial Marines for the Xbox 360 then you are one lucky son of a bitch. “Only 5 hours of gameplay for $60? ...

Death To The Bald Space Marine!

Let’s face it. Video game male lead characters are looking more and more like penises with each passing game. Big, white, male, bald and gruff seems to be the checklist for making a lead character. I for one am tired of this...
