I'm a bit bummed out right now...

EDIT: http://www.destructoid.com/in-light-of-recent-events-280654.phtmlAn official statement has been posted. It still doesn't make me happy, for all the reasons I listed below. But at least now we know where the staff stands on this m...


After being HUGE for one year...

Dear Dtoid, sit down, we need to talk for a minute. Its now almost bout a year since I became a HUGE member to support the Toid. I dont regret it but I think I wont prolong this membership though which kinda means I somewhat do regret i...


Artists and their art - seperate entities?

Through something that came up apparently over the last few days and that toally passed me by I had the idea to this blog. It'll get video games related down the line, trust me, but you'll have to sit through some NVGR introduction at first...


The end of the world won't be DLC

Apparently, after the wave of Facebook and social games seems to be going back and dying off again, there is a new gringo in town. Someone who is even hated more and more ever since. The talk is about: DLC! ... and somewhat Season Passes. I...


OpiumHerz's Game Extravaganza (free shit for you)

It's THAT time of the year again. OpiumHerz has looked at some stuff he has and then decided to give it away. [u]How it works:[/u] - you name the game you want - you get the game you want [u]Optional:[/u] - you can give me something ...


The things I love

COMMUNITY ASSIGNMENT TIME! Also: Adventure Time. 1. I love Kane & Lynch... both parts! How do you solve ANY problem? Bullet to the face. I said this before already, but I really do like those games. Don't get me wrong, they're not ex...


You should buy Goat Simulator - no, seriously...

When I bought Goat Simulator, right on the release date, I did for the joke and for standing by my word. You see, I was one of those people that said "This game HAS to be made" and I don't like people who write checks with their mouths that...


Gravelord Nito, I love you more than Vanilla Coke

Salida, so you might have heard about the triple A mega smash hit game that is Dark Souls. While the universe doesn't really expose much of itself the game has a pretty rich world with a ton of cool lore. Blogs about this have even been fro...


My game idea: Survive!

Since a blog is also there for writing other stuff besides my usual censorship column, I wanted to write an idea down I've carried with me for along time now (and who knows: maybe others do the same, I always find stuff like this interestin...


10 things about OpiumHerz

So this is a thing here and now, huh? 1. "Deal with it" is one of my principles And with that I don't mean "don't be a pussy", but I mean it in the literal sense. If you have a problem: fucking deal with it. Don't whine, don't cry, don't b...


Titanfall MIGHT be what we needed

Salida, Ladies and Gentlemen, I love shooters. I enjoy it tremendously to pump bullets into someones face until it isnt someones face anymore. And while I consider myself a person who can enjoy any kind of game if its well enough done an...


Community Discourse (or: for a better DToid)

Salida guys, so we have this thread in the forums that started a few months back with the whole "DToid sucks now, I'm taking my ball and leave"-wave. It got a bit stale back then, so I took the liberty of collecting the things that were ask...


About OpiumHerzone of us since 3:54 AM on 04.10.2013

German Blogger, writing the series "The worst thing about censorship is ███████ " (go check it out!) since I like to write about that topic and am invested in it a whole lot. Also writes some other stuff sometimes. Likes to listen to very strange bands and has the ultimate goal in life to taste every soft drink there is at least once.
Pure Gonzo - and while I thank god for Jim Sterling sometimes, I thank god for Hunter S. Thompson every day.

I'm a bastard. Don't trust me. Always keep asking, don let yourself get fed bullshit - not even by me.

I like good games. Yes, that's quite general, but I don't really like confining myself to certain genres. I like interesting approaches, invention and creativity. But I can enjoy a straight-up shooter as much as a "Bastion". It just has to be done well and appeal to me on some level.

Want to know anything else? Just leave a comment under a blog or write a message. Same goes for corrections (please), as English isn't my native language and thus isn't nearly perfect.
