The Walhalla Of Racing!

When I was about 7 years old, my family gave me a Sega Master System, one of the first games I got for it was "Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II"... This couldn't be anything but AWESOME... I feel I'm one of the first ge...

It's been a long time again, the build of the new TehLair has stalled for a few months as well due to Real Life getting in the way a bit, but I'm finally able to give you guys another update on the transformation of my baseme...

Dtoid Memories: EuroNARPs!

I "discovered" Dtoid in its infancy, through Digg.com I kept seeing this site pop up that I'd never heard of before but it was posting articles and links at a frightening rate... Lots of the articles were real eye-catchers an...

How to be a simracer and father without too much clutter.

As some of you know, I'll be a father soon. I've been a fan of racing games for years, but really became an avid fan of simracers over the last few years. This requires a wheel + seat for the best experience. So far I've buil...

EA, you've been bad, but here's a quick and simple way to make it all good...

Everybody's pissed at Electronic Arts at the moment, either it's Origin-steam-feuds, ridiculous Battlefield-decisions, buying this-or-that-developer and more. Recently the focus is directed at EA for not allowing Turn10Studio...

Being Social: How to host a NARP ( EuroNARP4 pics! )

NARPs are one of the greatest things I got from Dtoid, I've been hosting them for 4 years now and we've had about 15 EuroNARPs. The number only goes up with the summer edition, in betweens are decimal numbers like 2.5, 2.6 et...

Motion Control: How it changed FPS for me.

I started out playing PC-games when I was 7, at 8 I got my first home-console ( Sega Master System II ), but I stuck with PC-gaming until slowly but surely the original Xbox and Halo convinced me of the viability FPS-games on...

Aaamaazing: Mortal Kombat

Aah Mortal Kombat. A true phenomenon of its time. While we were just getting the hang of the fighting genre that Street Fighter II introduced, this thing hit us like a battering ram. We all know what the deal was. Violence....

Groundhog Day: BlazBlue

First of all, let me say that I am particularly happy with this month's musing topic. I'm not the kind of guy that writes blogs to bitch and moan. I write about games because I absolutely love games. In fact, taking a singl...

River City Retro: Kirby's Dream Land

Hello there, fine people. My name is Metallion and I write about games. Last week I read this blog on Destructoid. Not particularly well written. He should have used a spell checker and probably brushed up on his grammar a ...

River City Retro: What Final Fantasy used to sound like

I know I'm late to the party but I've recently been playing Final Fantasy 13 a lot. Yes, it's linear and no, I don't care. I'm loving every second of it. There's one thing I do care about though. Where's the freaking music?...

River City Retro: Today the NES turns 25. Happy anniversary!

The early eighties is a time of mixed feelings. A saturated market and abominations like E.T. for the Atari 2600 had thrown the western world into the shambles known as the video game crash of '83. Yet it is this very y...

River City Retro: River City ... Ransom!

So how's it going? Hanging around Destructoid? Reading the Cblogs? Are we having fun yet? I don't know about you but you bet I am! I've been replaying my copy of River City Ransom for the NES. Not only is that an absolutely...

River City Retro: Guilty Gear's Metal Meltdown

I've always been a huge fan of heavy metal music. In fact I entered this speech contest just earlier today. We were given a few minutes up on stage to talk in Japanese about pretty much anything we wanted. My subject was meta...

A Gamer's Diet: It's my birthday!

Well actually it isn't my birthday. It was a little over one month ago. I had fully intended to publish this blog back then but as you can see, that didn't happen. I'm guess I'm still getting used to my new daily life since...

River City Retro: Time Slaughter

You know, when I was a little kid, I just couldn't get enough of Mortal Kombat. I didn't have a SNES until the Playstation was already out so until then, I could only play the game in a shop or at a friend's house. Whenever...

Picreport of my slightly Dtoid-themed trip to Singapore :-)

Just got back from Singapore, as a loyal Dtoid-member, I took all my 3 dtoid-shirts with me, sadly only one of those ( STFUAJPG ) is not black, so I had to wear that one the most ( luckily my mother-in-law cleaned it regularl...

A gamer's diet: Ratatouille

Let me start off by excessively thanking everyone that supported A Gamer's Diet two weeks ago. I really didn't know what to expect at first. With double digit faps and loads of encouraging comments, including two from the D...

A gamer's diet: Spaghetti Bolognaise

This is a new series I intend on doing. Other than gaming, a thing I really love is eating and drinking. For a while now I have been wanting to blog about the things I make and bake. Feeling like this doesn't belong on a ga...

River City Retro Alien Wars 4: How to make a proper X-COM Sequel

Good morning, Destructoid! Two weeks ago I rounded up all of the silly spin-offs and horrible design choices that took the once great X-COM series to its grave. Just as I was finishing up that article, 2k announced yet anot...

E for Effort: Becoming a World Warrior

I remember seeing Street Fighter II in a Club Nintendo magazine for the first time. Even to this day I can't quite put my finger on it but Street Fighter II just had something to it that made me absolutely crave the game. T...

River City Retro Alien Wars 3: How the X-COM series fell from grace

It's been a while but I've finally been able to write the next chapter in my RCR Alien Wars series. I'm sorry about the delays but I've recently moved to Tokyo where I'll be living for a while so I've been busy recovering f...
