About
Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.

Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.

You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.

Plus he crave attention via the following:

Turns out actual farmers play Farming Simulator

Despite mainly playing all my games on PC, I've never been bitten by the simulation bug. There's no copies of Euro Truck Simulator or Farming Simulator lurking in my Steam library. Still, I'm keen to know who plays these game...   more

David Braben hopes Elite: Dangerous will be 'future proof'

Part of me worries about the three big upcoming space games No Man's Sky, Star Citizen and Elite: Dangerous. I'm fearful they'll consume my life for years to come. Some of that is going to be down to DLC and expanded content...   more

Dishonored is $4.99 in the yearly QuakeCon Steam sale

The horribly cynical part of me is wondering what's going to actually happen at this year's QuakeCon; now that John Carmack is gone from the company and Doom 4 still just exists as a trailer, is there much to look forward to?...   more

Chris Avellone and Brian Fargo join Fallout: Nuka Break movie

Personally, I blame the World Cup for distracting me from the news that the team behind the great Fallout fan-film, Nuka Break, launched its Kickstarter to fund the filming of future episodes. Thankfully, film makers Wayside...   more

Review: Abyss Odyssey

One thing you can't accuse Chilean developer ACE Team of doing is ploughing the same, well trodden ground as other indie devs. Its debut hit Zeno Clash combined a surrealistic art style with first-person, melee combat, while ...   more

iPhone hit Pivvot is coming to Steam next week

Mobile-to-PC ports don't have the best of track records but I've got some high hopes for the home computer version of Pivvot, a great mobile game which was one of my favorites from 2013. It has such a simple concept: to keep...   more

Review: 4PM

If you're like me, then you'll have staggered out of a pub, wandered home, and then tried to fill in the blanks but, like a favorite song of mine says, it's just the best bits that are colored in. I can't honestly say there's...   more

Review: Sir, You Are Being Hunted

"Man is the most deadly of prey" -- whoever said that probably never thought they'd be chased around the desolate British countryside with robotic dogs snapping at their heels. Sir, You Are Being Hunted is the debut game from...   more

Celebrate Canada Day with a Steam sale

I'll be honest, being from Scotland means I don't know about a lot about Canadian culture; I know there's some great Canadian bands (Fucked Up, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Buck 65) and I know there's also some pish ones (you...   more

The Art of Watch Dogs nails the modern cyberpunk aesthetic

For all the controversy over its graphical quality, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs had a compelling open-world version of Chicago to explore. As Chris Carter pointed out in his review, the visuals rarely meet the quality set by GTA V b...   more

Voyage to Farland is some old-school Japanese roguelike action

Sometimes you see a trailer for a game and think, "Yeah, that's some real old-school stuff right there." From the video above, you can tell Voyage to Farland harks back to the 16-bit era but developer Patrick Casey is puttin...   more
