Great things are on the way: I'm now heading up reviews for Destructoid

I'll keep this brief. Destructoid has had a few losses lately. Tony and Jim in particular are dear friends of mine (who I will follow across the ends of the internet), and it's sad to see them go. But make no mistake! They ...

No means no... but sometimes it has to be said out loud.

This started as a response to Glowbear's excellent blog recapping some recent events at E3, but it grew far too long, and I've never been concise... so I'll put my huge ramble here in my own blog, but please read her blog FIR...

It's all about who you're sleeping with...

original Possible spoilers for the Mass Effect trilogy ahead... proceed at your own risk! I've mentioned it before, but I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to video game romances. †I dumped Anomen the wimp in Bald...

More questions than answers...

Deal with it.

Yup, the next Xbox might not be for you. The rumours of an "always on" internet connected next-generation Xbox aren't particularly new, though recent leaks and the distinct lack of any outright denial seem to further confi...

Just call me Farmer Elsa!

Jamestown: A (very) late and short review

Once upon a time, there was a little destructoider called Osga21 who had a massive backlog. He had the bad habit of buying games on sale and/or humble bundle and never playing them. One day, a long time ago, he decided t...

Sword & Sworcery and the death of adventure games

Little Inferno - the fireplace that gets in your mind

So, I got Little Inferno as a gift at Christmas and obviously I had read stuff about it saying that it was a disappointment. And I agree, but only if you want it to be the next World of Goo. Iím guessing that most of you kn...
