Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 – The Shakedown

  is the quintessential Steam Sale game. Exactly the kind of blood diamond in the rough that makes Steam's bi-annual extravaganzas so exciting. When launched, I could definitely see the appeal and about bought i...   more

Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 – The Shakedown


NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window

I watch a lot of YouTube on a regular basis, but since I've busted up my foot and find myself sitting around home all day, my dosage level has skyrocketed to Keith Richards-esq proportions. Sometimes I'll wake up, cue up so...   more

NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window


God help me, I read some MechWarrior books

I have a slap-slap-kiss-kiss relationship with the Battletech/MechWarrior franchise. MechWarrior Online is a game I keep returning to even though I find it ridiculously underdeveloped and often completely frustrating to pla...   more



Burn everything, play in the ashes: What games should learn from Risk: Legacy

I haven't played Risk since high school and I hadn't been interested to try it again since. But then again, regular old Risk never had mech-suits and bear-riding future Vikings did it? Enter Risk: Legacy, which upgrades th...   more



Sweet Spanish booty: and other reasons why Capcom will never go broke

Capcom has finally laid out the release dates for the latest update/expansion of Street Fighter IV. More importantly, they've more or less finalized the change list, the little tweaks and nudges made to bring the cast in ba...   more



Fuck the police! Anti-authoritarian games I have loved/hated

Watch_Dogs is coming out in a week, and I'm just not that terribly excited. But I should be. Watch_Dogs is the game I would have designed back in high school, back when I tried to paint in my Breakfast Club-esq one-dimen...   more



Shifting through the ashes: The last secrets of Dark Souls

In an effort to keep myself sane as I wait for the PC release of Dark Souls 2 (an idea that sounded good in my head a month ago, but has ended in nothing but jealousy and self directed rage since), I've been digging DEEP in...   more



Titanfall Review: Bury me in my robot

I never got down with Call of Duty, the franchise Respawn's lead designers turned into a juggernaut before their messy public split with Infinity Ward. The heady fumes of dude-bro machismo associated with the series bummed ...   more

Wrench's Indie Game Love Giveaway - Winner

There are two kinds of ways of looking at love. The first is the kind espoused by the Beatles. This is the kind of feelgood generalized love that binds us together as a society, lifts us spiritually, and is the hidden secre...   more

Wrench's Indie Game Love Giveaway!

A few months ago, I held a game giveaway to celebrate my favourite holiday, Halloween. Now I'm throwing one to celebrate a holiday I have a considerably more complicated relationship with – Valentine's Day. Valentine's i...   more



My Characters Know How to Take A Beating

I've heard fighting games described as speed chess with punches. When you boil them down, fighting games are essentially a series of choices. They play out insanely fast, and you may not even realize you're making them, but...   more



Wrenchfarm's Best of 2013

2013 was a weird year in gaming. Old consoles winding down, new consoles stumbling out of the gate, and Steam growing bigger, stronger, and stranger all the time. According to all the previews, we have the promise of VR goggl...   more



Risk Of Rain Review: The Deluge

A ship crash-lands on a mysterious planet, and an explorer crawls from the wreckage. There are vast tundras, staggering mountains, and dried lakes that go on forever, splitting the land like a scar. It is all so very big, a...   more

XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Donate your body to science Winner!

Last Friday I put out the call, looking for brave Destructoiders willing to defend Earth in our most desperate hour. Willing to go to any length to defeat the alien aggressors, to sacrifice their very humanity and laugh in ...   more

Win XCOM: Enemy Unknown! Donate your body to science

As you might know from the review I wrote last Monday, I am a BIG fan of XCOM: Enemy Within. I thought it was one of the best games I've played this year. And now I want to spread the alien blasting love. That's why I'm g...   more

Win XCOM: Enemy Unknown! Donate your body to science


Review: XCOM: Enemy Within

XCOM: Enemy Unknown was my personal GOTY of 2012. Firaxis managed to do what seemed like an impossible task, reinventing the classic masochistic strategy franchise for a new generation, while staying true to its roots. Enem...   more

Massive Deal At Future Shop this weekend: AC4, CoD:Ghosts, or BF4 Free

I NEVER do this, but I have to post this super short spammy blog before I got off to work tonight, my Canadian brothers in frost need to know about this. Apparently, this weekend between the 8th and the 11th, you can trade...   more

Wrench's Spooky Halloween Steam Give Away WINNER!

After writing each of the names of people who entered on a tiny scroll bound with human hair and casting them into a Jack O' Lantern with a spoopy ghost carved into it, I recited the forbidden names of the 5 forgotten Gods ...   more



Wrench's Spooky Halloween Steam Give Away BONUS! (Updated!)

Halloween is just about upon us and so are the results of my SPOOOKY STEAM GIVE AWAY! But much like the psycho killer in a slasher flick, just when you thought it was over, the undead corpse of my contest has sprung to life...   more

Wrench's Halloween Steam Give Away!

Halloween is just about my favourite time of the year. Talk about the perfect holiday, you get dressed up in whatever you want, eat a shit ton of candy, and maybe go to a party and get drunk with the Wolfman and his Vampire...   more



My gaming story: The Italian, the wimp, and the scientist

Videogames were an alien concept to me until the Christmas of 1989. Actually, to be completely honest, it was the Boxing Day of 1989. The traditional tag-along commercial holiday honouring the return of unwanted gifts and d...   more



To fly through space

The glossy 22 page brochure reads more like a testament of faith than a sales pitch. The evangelical copy boasts the vehicle's impressive performance benchmarks and gushes over the many luxury features a potential buyer can...   more



E3 Was Pretty Freaking Awesome

E3 this year was rad. Seriously, I can't remember the last time I was this engaged and excited by an E3 conference. The last few years on the tail-end of our current generation, E3 has felt compulsory, predictable even. S...   more



E3 2013: Bring back the love

It's been a bummer lately hasn't it? The Wii U was a bit of a disappointment, the internet has been on fire over the Xbox One's inscrutable DRM schemes, and it seems like there's been a different controversy, closure, or bl...   more



Naked inflatable man: Dtoid sent me stuff!

About two months ago I got a message from Andy asking me what shirt size I wear, that Niero wanted to send me a little something for all the "badass blogging" I've done. Cool! A free Dtoid shirt or something, that would be ...   more



Violence: I want to have control

Before last weekend, I could honestly say that I've never walked out on a movie. That was before I went to see Evil Dead. I'm not going to sugar coat it or try to defend my delicate ego, I couldn't handle the stuff that ...   more



Reborn for a new generation: Games that need a next-gen reboot

In the new generation of consoles, reboots and reinventions are in, and sequel numbers have become passe. Chopping off the number at the end of the title and adding a colon or subtitled to a familiar name seems to be the ...   more



Asymmetrical Balance: The Spider and the Scout

The Spider is the most recent addition to the garage in Mechwarrior Online. And people hate it. "It's useless. It sucks. Every other mech is better, pls buff it noa." Balance is a tricky thing in multiplayer games. All...   more



Wrenchfarm's Best of 2012

It's easy to be a snob. It's easy to write 2012 off as a dud year in gaming. I mean hey, the consoles are winding down, releases are drying up, the Wii U landed rocky, and this was another year where most of the big game rele...   more



The meaning of N.I.C

So I wanted to participate in this latest meme sweeping the toid. Turns out my name is associated with some racially charged slang that I just can't live up too. I'll just be sadly walking down this lonely highway if anyone needs me.   more
