Another Anthony Go Bye-Bye Post

Fuck it. I spend a lot of time regretting things. Not super-cool consequential things like bungee jumping or quitting my job or going to France for a year or throwing off societal conventions. Dull, awkward, English stuff li...   0

Icycle. Mind. Blown.

I havenít done this in a while. Still a bit tender. A little unrefined. A game that makes you start writing again is one that you donít want to fuck up, so bare with me if this sounds a little off. Icycle is a short Flash ...   0

L4D2 Demo: Play As Infected and Other Hacks

Edit: Looks like this came out two days ago, sorry if this is old news. It happened last year with L4D, and now it's happening again this year with another woefully insecure demo for public dissection. If you've played throu...   0

Left 4 Dead: Crash Course

Crash Course is good. Very good. I'd go so far as to say that, with the exception of certain moments in the other campaigns, it is the best versus campaign I've played so far. It combines the best elements of versus and com...   0

Riff could be a really shitty game. You might refer to it as completely unremarkable and emotionally paralytic. I wouldnít even call it a great amount of fun, not compared to the standards that some free games have. You mig...   0

Left 4 Dead 2: Grenade Launcher (video heavy)

Tonnes of Left 4 Dead 2 footage here, the main one showing off the new nade launcher. Can't honestly see it's purpose in-game but who cares; it's a nade launcher. Maybe it'll be useful for clearing crowds of infected from a...   0

Connections: Jade Empire to Left 4 Dead

What the fuck is this? Iíll tell you. Itís a thing where I trawl IMDB with the intent to link two games together via their themes, names, cast and crew. Itís not meant to be short or direct, itís designed to be exploratory; d...   0

5 Reasons Why That BG&E Trailer Could Be In-Engine

It would be naive to assume that this is in-game footage. Aside from the obviously scripted camera, the animation looks a little too smooth, the physics a tad too realistic and the vistas a bit too gorgeous. But scripted ev...   0

Maturity in Video Games (Podtoid Question)

I kinda feel a little self conscious writing this because it seems a bit self-referential, but whatever. I knew the question would come out wrong on Podtoid, so allow me to clarify. The question I asked boiled down to: When...   0

One Week Memory: Left 4 Dead

I donít like games magazines at all. The price is a major off-put, they are slow - often weeks late with the big news and they are no better written than most online publications. The additional numerous mistakes and typos ...   0

A Fun Game

Arena Wars is fun, attractive and simple, yet infinitely replayable. Put simply, itís what Unreal Tournament would be like if it was an RTS. The true depth, however, is something you experience by playing it. It isnít a Tri...   0

Seven Ways to Get More Fun Out of Left 4 Dead

A few weeks ago, I was playing through No Mercy on Expert for what was probably the twelfth time, and I realised I wasnít having any fun any more. This was probably because I had been burning through the same map over and o...   0

Beyond Good and Evil 2 Finally Greenlit

Beyond Good and Evil has been Greenlit after several months of delays and speculation. It has had a rough ride. The original was released in Q4 of 2003 to massive critical acclaim and poor sales. If you haven't played it, go...   0

Trine Looks Different and Amazing

It does. Trine is a PSN exclusive from the look of it, which means tough luck for me. But I want to post this trailer because the kind of person who frequents Destructoid should like the look of it. Enjoy!   0

Use Your Pain Pills

If Left 4 Dead had a soundtrack, that would be the title of the album. I will now provide an argument as to why you should put down your med kit and pop some pills instead. 1. 80% of pills go to waste Just think of those...   0
