Taking in the Sights: Guild Wars 2

I've only begun dipping my toe into the Guild Wars 2 beta that's been running this weekend, and I'm already impressed with the design of the world. It takes a special sort of game to cause me to stop and admire my surroundi...

Revisiting the First Half-Life; Why it is My Favorite PC Game of All Time

This is actually quite a tough choice. Do I pick Fallout 2, with its incredible player interactions, or maybe Portal, with its humor and creative puzzle solving? Maybe I should pick Deus Ex (which you just reinstalled) or ...

PAX Pic Post

I departed for PAX East 2011 with no previous convention experience and no idea what to expect. I had few goals other than "enjoy yourself", check out the 3DS, and attend at least the Community panel to support Hamza (or...

Why Sony's NGP/PSP2 Will Not Fail

Samit Sarkar made some fair points in his article; Why Sony's PSP2 (NGP) will fail. Before I say anything else, let me list a disclaimer, I think it will depend more on the price than any argument either Mr. Sarkar or myse...

2010 Sucked: Alan Wake was a Huge Disappointment

I started Alan Wake with high expectations. It was hyped up, and had good reviews. And frankly, Alan Wake started out awesomely. The first few chapters of the game were amazing. I loved finding the foreshadowing novel pag...

Destructoid Fantasy Football 2010

Much like last year, the DToid Forums are hosting some fantasy football! Our 10 person league is all filled up and drafted, so I decided to make a short blog post showing how awesome we are and the cool things up for grabs t...

Rise From Your Grave: Dreamcast!

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. -Robert Jordan The Undead have been sh...

A tour of Chateau ArcticFox

I've been meaning to do this blog for a while. Ever since I moved into my new apartment last summer. But each time, something new was coming out that I knew I'd have have to get. In November it was the Prestige Edition of ...

Music Matters: Eve Online

Eve Online is monolithic. It is huge in its complexity. It is one of those rare MMO's that has staying power in the face of games like WoW. Eve had always intrigued me, both in its play style and in its progressive natur...

Music Matters: Persona 3 and Persona 4

We often spend a lot of time playing games. But when we're done, we're done. We move onto the next big thing, occasionally revisiting a particularly beloved title for whatever reason. But recently, I noticed something. ...

Live Vicariously Through Me: PAX East – The Lead up and Friday

I’m back in the real world now. While that sucks, I still have the memories of the amazing times I had at PAX East in Boston this year. I figured the best thing I could do is share some of the awesome times I had, much li...

Ninetales (キュウコン, Kyūkon?), known as the Fox Pokémon, is a yellow nine-tailed fox, based on the kitsune, a Japanese fox spirit. The Kyūbi (九尾?), which held simila...

My Dream Games (and the reality I face)

After finishing a game that I liked, I often wished for a sequel. After countless bad spin-offs or sequels to good games, I've refined that desire a bit. No matter how much I loved Shining Force I and II or how bad I want...

A personal favorite: a tribute to Metropolis Zone

There is tons of great music out there these days. No matter what you like there will be a song to define your day, your mood or even your life. There are even awesome power metal remakes. But none of those songs compare ...

Ten Games that Influenced Etirflita

These are not my Top Ten games, in fact some of these choices are downright bad. These are just ten games that influenced me as a gamer. While there are other games that are more influential, these ones have a special place...

Simplicity lost: a Puzzle Quest: Galactrix non-review

Like many others here at DToid, I was really looking forward to Puzzle Quest: Galactrix. Having played the PC demo, I was enjoying things like a fairer combat system, a sci fi story, more characters and more addictive gam...

Mass Effect: An old, yet strangely timely review

After seeing Mass Effect postings coming to light again, I figured I'd post this review I wrote for a school show on December 7th, 2007. Why post this review so late? Well there are a few reasons. 1. Seeing as how Mass Eff...

2008, not as cool as 1998

2008 didn't suck. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it wasn't the best. "Best" is a title that in my own honest opinion belongs to 10 years ago, the wonderful year of 1998. I loved 1998. I was 12 and had an N64 and a P...

Left 4 Dead: Another Perspective (Read: rant) on Xbox Live

The other day, Destructioid's Jim Sterling wrote an article I found very interesting. It was on how Left 4 Dead was not Halo. At first, I scoffed, as I had gotten the game at launch, and must have gotten very lucky. Most...
