SPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOORRRRRTTTTTTSSS

Having an allegiance to a sports team is stupid. I am stupid for doing it. It's like rooting for Clorox to do well on the stock exchange or something. But I grew up with a love for baseball. Not because my par...   more



Videogame companies as described by Google autocomplete

Here is a list of companies that make videogames sometimes, as described by Google's autocomplete. #JOURNALISM . "Ubisoft is milking Assassins Creed" That picture says it all. "Nintendo is doomed" †Naturally. Capcom is...   more



Dtoid GOTY 2013: Kyle MacGregor's Picks

We just doled out a mess of game of the year awards, and they're all lovely games. That said, they're not necessarily all my favorite games of 2013. So, in the interest of full disclosure or something, here were the games I...   more

Some thoughts on The Last of Us

What is up Destructiod? This blog is about The Last of Us which is a videogame you can play. It is basically like that documentary called Tekken starting Qui Gon Jinn. In it you play as a man who has a job in human traffick...   more

My favorite games of 2013 so far

Update: Dragon's Crown also deserves a spot on this list. And from what I've played of Killzone Mercenary it'll be on here too. We're a little over halfway through the year. Seems like a good time to do some reflecting or wh...   more



KILLER LOOKS - My free film criticism eBook on American Psycho

Happy Independence Day! From the country that used to own America! Around a very long time ago I thought it would be fun to write a book about Blade Runner. Soon after, I thought it would be equally fun to do the same thin...   more

Gunpoint Review

Oh, my, I'm back. Oh look at that. I'm not dead! After all my exams. I'm alive. Nice. Okay. See you all in three years! Actually, let's talk about Gunpoint. Blimey. Okay so I wrote about Gunpoint around five of your Eart...   more

Read my free tragicomedy novel. And stuff.

Trimalchio is a tragicomedy, which is neither tragic nor omedy, about a young playwright drafted in to adapt The Great Gatsby. While dodging visions of a mysterious past he finds himself slowly sinking into the mind of F Sc...   more

Bath time for videogames!

Videogames probably aren't real life. Link never has to worry about smelling terrible after jogging halfway across Hyrule. Diddy Kong eats plenty of bananas, but never has any poop to throw at anybody. (Sad, I know.) I thin...   more



Wrote another free book about video-games

YES THIS IS WHAT I DO WHEN I GET BORED. I've released three books on video-games thus far as part of my Up, Down, Left, Right series. Volume Four is more about video-game communities than video-games themselves, though it ...   more

What's in a name?: Some thoughts on player character design and 'names'

O, be some other name! What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet I throw a grenade and watch it slowly tumble behind the concrete block. I reload my pistol as the lens flare blin...   more

Weapon of Choice: BioShock's Wrench

When people talk about weapons having 'weight' in video-games I always think of BioShock's wrench. From the minute Atlas said with his Irish†laden†lips "Pick up a crowbar or something."†I knew that there was something afoot...   more

Weapon of Choice: Half-Life 2's Shotgun

Video-games are too obsessed with weaponry. I understand guns give that 'instant feedback' which is utterly crucial to†tactile†experiences but interactivity for a good amount of time has always resided in the tunnel vision ...   more

Changes

I have a few books coming out very soon (one on video-games, another on American Psycho, my first proper novel and a poetry compilation) so I'm very short on time at the moment. I'm here to say that I've now happily joined th...   more

Why I've not been around so much.

Thereís a reason I havenít posted much not so often, or not at all, in the last few months and itís down to a singular reason. This reason has sucked up more time than anything. I fully expect my impending exams to do the sam...   more

The Goozex experiment continues

Several months ago I wrote a blog expressing my discontent with the current state of Goozex. The videogame trading community served me well for years. But recently the bottom has fallen out. The bubble has burst. The market...   more

Battling the Backlog: Asura, Ico, Skyrim, Resident Evil 5 DLC

I've been working on some reviews lately and got into the Monaco beta so I haven't been digging into my backlog much lately. In fact, aside from Asura's Wrath I beat all of these months ago and just forgot about them. But I s...   more

Backlog Review: Banjo-Tooie (XBLA)

As the dedicated, die-hard Banjo fan I often claim to be, it pains to me admit that I never finished Banjo-Tooie when I was young, and my prior experience with this spectacular sequel is brief. I played the original religious...   more

Top 10 Gaming Web Series
