Just because I could run screaming into the street waving my genitals about doesn't mean I will.

I am going to start this by using my genitals as an analogy for the DS touchscreen and the Wiimote, something that has surely been done a million and one times for a million and one reasons (and probably once or twice for rea...

Drew PONG on a drunk friends face, dressed as Ryu and played the hell outta Street Fighter 4

So it's been a while since I last posted or even really visited the site. I'll site laziness, booze and a total lack of motivation for the absence. That said, I've a few amusing little pics to show for my time away. Don't ge...

Some ideas for terrible, terrible games.

I've had a bunch of thoughts go through my head and, as is often the case, they need to be vented so they can leave me and inhabit some other poor soul. So here are some ideas for games that must never be made. Oz: The MMOR...

I met some of the guys from Pandemic studios on Thursday.

I have lived in Brisbane my entire life and have basically thought of it as being distant from anywhere or anything of much importance. This wasn't something I disliked, the womblike quality of the city has allowed me to todd...

I've decicded to use a Mario Kart based system for rating the attractiveness of other human beings.

Bear with me here. This all started a few nights back while I was at work. It was getting late, I was tired, nothing much was happening and, as is usual under these circumstances, my mind began to wander. A co-worker (Ken-ye...

Melbourne had a "history of video games" show and I went: Gabe at Game On.

I live in a city called Brisbane, the capital of the sun-raped state of Queensland. It is small and womblike in that you can get by here, quite comfortably, with the bare minimum of effort. Three guys on welfare can carve o...

Not video game related (IHUIA), I withdrew from Uni to become a pro wrestler!

IHUIA is an acronym for I Hate Using Internet Acronyms put there purely for the sake of saving an unloved joke from the gas chamber. That's where bad jokes go, like all the unloved puppies of the world. At any rate, I've bou...

Not enough hours in the day...the best and last (for a while) of soul3150

I used to post here quite regularly. Be it insightful observations of the gaming world and the people who populate it, theory based analysis of gaming as a media or pointless drunken rants, it was all done (DAN HIBIKI) ...

Can PAL just die and go away now please?

I'll start this off by saying that I know little of the nuts and bolts of screens and definitions etc. When my more tech savvy friends start with their hd-1080p-whatever-the-fuck talk I tend to space out and think about butte...

Games can make my mind do some pretty odd things.

I am a man of many minds. Not to the level of Fight Club, or even any diagnosable multiple personality disorder, more like a captain (me) in charge of a bunch of other people (ensigns mostly). They do what I tells them to do,...

Good Idea/Bad Idea: Jack Thompson on Destructoid.

Having just read Jims post, and visiting Jack's sparse profile page (c'mon Jack, spice it up with some headers or avatars, a snappy Anne Coulter one perhaps) my mind leaped for joy at the idea that he was actually here readin...

Reposting this for the sake of Thompson.

If my hero Jack Thompson has taught me anything, and repeated readings of his masterpiece garbed only in sanctified gamer blood has taught me all kinds of things, it's that it's okay to engage in certain acts as a means ...

Why do bad games exist?

Games are art. I have said and argued this a million and one times here and elsewhere. The line between good and bad art, though, is purely personal. It's just what you like, what strikes you, what appeals to you. I hate clow...

"Looks like we got ourselves a reader", Resident Evil One, my own private Memory Card.

Firstly, sorry Chad, but immitation IS the sincerist form of flattery. Sure, I could have suggested that you do a Memory Card on this topic but, A: you may have not had this memory and, B: suggesting you do this as a request ...

Nintendo needs to let their friends win sometimes...

I have friends, real no foolin', friends. Trouble is in that fuck all of them game. I have one who is obsessed with Pirates of the Burning Sea, and by obsessed I mean crazy fuck bent on playing it. That's it though, no more...

What is the "core" of hardcore?

What is hardcore? That is a question that has been bugging me for ages now. So I began to deconstruct it, let's take hardcore apart... The literal beginning of it is in the name, (doi) and is part of the expansion of masculi...

Something I bought has appreciated in value!

I bought a Dreamcast at midnight. Yup, stood there outside my EB, eagerly awaiting my CD goodness after the N64. I bought is for the great games, particularly, the twodee fighters. So I bought an arcade stick to better nai...

By the Power of Greyskull, I love lightgun games...

As a youngling there was an arcade nearabouts that had these things called "lock-ins", which were wonderous times where an arcade would make you pay 20 Earth money to get in and then switch everything to free play. It was f...

Fighting Back: I'm gonna kill a bunch of kids dressed as my hero Jack Thompson.

If my hero Jack Thompson has taught me anything, and repeated readings of his masterpiece garbed only in sanctified gamer blood has taught me all kinds of things, it's that it's okay to engage in certain acts as a means to...

An additional piece to Jonathan Holmes' violence and gaming article.

I write this as a cblog and not as a comment on the article itself as it grew a tad too long, that and I've not posted anything for a while and this stuff is right up my alley. Firstly, Jonathan is right about the schema we ...

Appreciating Killer 7.

I can remember that, when this game first came out, the reviewer at IGN said that if video games didn't have an arthouse category before, they did now. I don't write this to belittle the opinions of people who don't like ...
Dec 03 // soul3150

Hicksmas approaches!

This is off topic, as in it has little to do with games, but it is worthwhile and I feel that it can sit comfortably amongst the philosophical ramblings that this grand site tends to host. As I wander about my fair city I am...

Gaming journalism with balls+sledgehammer satire=New banner=Me a happy member.

A little while back I wrote a somewhat bitter piece about the state of gaming journalism, which was written after drinking following a research session into media theory. So I have wanted to see a little venom for quite some...

Black-ban Gamespot, fuckers.

God-fucking-dammit, I was happy there for a moment, I'd just written a loving appreciative note to Mario Galaxy and now this, and now I'm pissed. This is fucking unacceptable. It belittles gaming journalism and that belittle...

Australia recieves Super Mario Galaxy, the wheel.

I must admit that I was pretty much burned out on Mario in the weeks leading up to the release. I was actually at a point where I was saying "meh" about it, preferring to focus my anticipation on Samus as opposed to the plumb...

Sexuality Gaming and the Halo 3 thing.

I'd like to preface this by saying that my net is capped so I haven't seen the video, but I have listened to whole Fred Phelps rants for my religion class so I figure it can't be worse than that. Firstly I'd like to address ...

Ode to Team Fortress 2.

PC gaming for me was always a sisyphean ordeal of confusion and pain. I bought the awesome Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers for my birthday once and had a hellish time getting it to work. Finally, 6 days after the worst bi...

The Rev, tiff, virtualgirl, gender, media and gaming, all solved in one convenient post.

Firstly it's not simple, it's mind bendingly complex, it has simple pricipled foundations but that's about as close as it gets. It's called scopophelia, the love of looking at and/or being looked at, and the mass media impri...

What drink for what game...2

Killer 7 I know that this is somewhat specific but that can be the nature of drinks and games from time to time. But trust me, this one fits. You're going to want to get a bottle of absinthe, now available to Americans for ...

A guide to finding the right accompanying drink for games...

Given my Irish heritage, my Australian-ness and my low self esteem, I drink, and there is nothing I love more than to get a little drunk as I game. But, as with combining liquour and food, there are specific drinks for specif...
