Dec 29 // Anthony Burch

A tribute to videogame fan films, and a game you NEED to play (but won't).

Firstly, this. Any excuse to watch Escape from City 17, right? Secondly, The Void is currently on sale for half off ($9.99) on Steam, and really deserves to be checked out. Maybe. On the one hand: It's one of the most in...

A new article, and thoughts on The Saboteur (and open world games in general).

Firstly, this is about the most prolific video game movie actors in Hollywood. Two are supermodels. The Saboteur is, to me, an incredibly enjoyable game that isn't actually all that good. While its controls are horrendou...

An article on game documentaries, and Assassin's Creed II thoughts

First of all, this. Second of all, I think AC2's ending has to go down in history, alongside the Star Destroyer bit in Force Unleashed, as one of those gameplay moments that sounds absolutely spectacular written down but i...

Holy shit, Kohlstream

I mean, holy shit. These are goddamn amazing. I'm reading the backs of the boxes now, and god damn. And the DVDs actually work in my PC. I'm watching Mortal Kombat as we speak. Thanks, a thousand times thanks.

Regarding depictions of gamers in films, and an unofficial HAWP

<p> Firstly, a top five list about the stupid ways movies portray gamers (and the Digg link if you feel like it). Secondly, the forumites already found it but Ash and I did a scene for the Star Wars Uncut fan project,...

Comparing Japanese and Western video game movies.

Spoiler: Japanese ones tend to be better. Which is odd, because I have the exact opposite opinion when it comes to, like, actual games. Sold Demon's Souls a little while ago, and despite loving the first Way of the Samura...

If you are on this list, you're getting a free HAWP DVD.

This will get a frontpage post very soon, but you should probably know that the HAWP Season One DVD is now available: https://www.createspace.com/274598 And if you're on this list, that means you did art for the DVD that I u...

A followup to my JUMP! review

At the time of writing the review, I hadn't completed the game and thus didn't give it a score. The Dtoid tips line got an angy email from some guy who hilariously ended with "email me back if you want my full review," basi...

The winners of the HAWP DVD fanart contest thing (also, idiocy)

I am the stupidest person in the world, and one of the credits in the fanart menu section on the DVD will be wrong. I am intensely, intensely sorry for this and will try to mention the real artist as frequently as possible wh...

HAWP DVD stuff (also Big Trouble in Little China needs to be a videogame)

You can tell it's true because I wrote an article about it. Just writing about the goddamn thing makes me want to see it again. HAWP DVD UPDATE: I finished the proof and sent it off to CreateSpace. Now I just wait for them ...
Sep 29 // Anthony Burch

I'm gonna be on a live radio show tonight (in case you want to listen).

While the Podtoid crew will be talking about pecs and Super Street Fighter IV tonight, I'm going to be on ChatterBox Video Game Radio at 9 pm Arizona time (in other words, roughly three hours from now). You can listen liv...

The future is now

Wherein I discuss videogame movie technology and how close we are to reaching it in reality. On the subject of future-tech, I just got an iPod touch and am flabbergasted by how willingly people will put up with an intrinsi...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Podcastin': Episode One

Yeah. If you're into it, you can subscribe to it. If you're not, well, we tried.

PAX and the tale of the silver flasks

As you can see in the photo above, next to my BioShock Big Daddy and Little Sister and framed photo of Niero in front of MTV Studios, there is one incredibly hip looking silver flask. With the Dtoid head engraved on it, in ...

Videogame movies are trying to kill you. This is fact.

I wrote this article and you could read it if you wanted to. It's about fictional videogames that kill people. Also, Ash and I took these pictures at PAX and gave them to the guys at Rockstar.

My thoughts on the upcoming "Gamer" movie, and Arkham impressions.

I'm leaning toward the assumption that Gamer will suck ass, but there are very small rays of weird, postmodern hope to be found in the basic premise. I went to an Arkham Asylum midnight release with Davis, and spent around...

Why I love Destructoid

That just about sums it up.

Of videogame sequels to classic movies (also, HAWP DVD details)

I wrote an article about videogame sequels to movies that often equal their source material (The Warriors, Tron 2.0, etc). It's here. After next week's HAWP season finale, I'm gonna start working on a season DVD. For no par...

The Pirate Radio Station in 'Bring Down the Sky' and FOX News

Words -- and in this case, a quote -- need to be snipped to salvage tone or keep an article to what I would consider readable length. In my "Bring Down the Sky" article there was one particular quote that I couldn’t share w...
Jul 28 // Anthony Burch

I want to play Space Paranoids.

For reasons outlined here. Also: am I the only person freaking the shit out that Jeff Bridges seems to be a bad guy in the next Tron movie? Will Bruce Boxleitner's son have to take him down, or something? I really liked Kev...

How David Hayter will save us all

I have written an article about how David Hayter could save videogame movies. You can read it at the link I just put in the blog in the previous sentence on this web site blog. So as to prevent this post from being a complete waste of your time, I have included pictures Davis and I took at a crazy-ass Japanese photo machine recently installed at our local arcade. Fucking weeaboos.

A new AMC article, and an update on HAWP

This article is about how videogame movies are infecting videogames with their shit quotient. Regarding HAWP -- we could be nearing the end of our first season very soon. Maybe. I'm not sure how it'll turn out. We'll proba...

The Papa Burch Photoshop contest winners

You can check out the submissions here and here. I showed them to my dad yesterday, and have picked the winners based solely on how much he laughed or said "that's cool" upon seeing them. First place: Gibbo Second place: C...
Jun 16 // Anthony Burch

An article I wrote about videogame movies that shouldn't be made.

You know they're still allegedly in preproduction on Sims movie? Ridiculous. Just so this blog isn't an entire waste of self-promoting space, I have an almost-amusing story from E3 that I never really found the right pla...

Reminder: The Papa Burch Photoshop contest ends soon!

Don't forget -- in five days, your chance to win some assorted games I don't want anymore in exchange for a cool Photoshop of my dad will be up. The contest rules and necessary exploitable images can still be found here.

Bork bork check out this AMC article bork [shortbork]

I'm actually quite happy with this one. Also, one or possibly two more Burch n' Davis articles are coming up -- one on Bayonetta, and one regarding our general feelings about E3 and miscellaneous stuff we experienced.

Weekly Musing: Regarding E3

(Repost from the frontpage) This is typically where you'd find the assigned community Musing topic for this month, but don't panic -- even though the topic and time period have changed, you've still got a chance to discuss...

Dear Next Level games (Punch-Out impressions):

If you're going to randomly implement a rule after a game's halfway point stating that I will arbitrarily fail a round after getting knocked down three times -- even if those three knockdowns occur in completely different r...
May 19 // Anthony Burch

Oh, look. Another AMC article I've written. [shortblog]

It's almost as if I do these every two weeks. On an unrelated note, my favorite thing about the Star Trek movie was watching Karl Urban try, with every ounce of his strength, to sound as American as humanly possible.

The Papa Burch photoshop extravaganza.

My dad's birthday is on June 13th, and I wanted to give him an interesting present other than a Blu-Ray of "Taken." Yesterday, I forced him to stand in front of a green screen making certain poses, ignoring his frequent r...
