A Relic Of A Bygone (Gaming) Age...

I honestly feel like I was born in the wrong time. The 60's would've been my decade. The decade were history was made, one day at a time. Where the biggest advances of both peace and war have ever been made. Where hippies roamed aimlessly...

A Different Look At Piracy...Seriously, I Mean It!!

Is Gaming Still...An Isolationist's Hobby?

I think I have spent about more than a year in solitary confinement. With occasional visits to the land that lies beyond my house, I have spent so much of my time being miserable, depressed and sitting inside, drowning my worries, my proble...

 
 
 
 

Should We Finally...Put Retro To Rest?

Nostalgia is a cruel bitch. It can warp your memories and distort your time you spent with some of your most treasured games. As I have mentioned in an earlier post, one of my bestest games everest was Age Of Empires II : Age Of Kings. Un...

 
 
 
 

The 1950s Approach...To 21st Century Gaming

White. Nearly all main protoganists in Western gaming are white. Even though the Western gaming market is played by a rich and culturally diverse mix of people, most protoganists are white, and male. "Oh f**k, it's one of those games are r...

 
 
 
 

Steam Christmas Sale, Portal 2...and John Lennon

Sometimes you need to step back. You need to take a look at the bigger picture. When you look at a painting, you don't focus in on a single point, you admire the entire thing. Otherwise greed will consume you. As I descend into a videoga...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Apathy, Depression...And Arkham City

Usually, when I write these blogs (if I ever do get around to it), I write them from a state of depression. I mostly try and keep this out of my writing for two reasons: 1. I don't want to bore and depress you lovely people. 2. Self-pity ...

 
 
 
 

Minecraft...How I Scooped Out Your Soul

I remember the first time I used a mod on Minecraft. I was building a library, and there was one particular section I wanted to build a room for technology. I decided to use Iron Blocks, because they have this really sleek look to them. Aro...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Why Are Games...Trying To Be Realistic?

Hey, long see no time...wait, that's not right. So anyway. I just watched Requiem for a Dream. Most depressing, disturbing, and slightly boring movie ever. I mean, literally, the entire film just made me feel sick. Like actually puke sick....

Zombies...Y U No Taken Seriously in Vidjo Games?

Since The Walking Dead is coming back next week, I decided to tackle an issue which has pissed me off for a long time. Why aren't zombies taken seriously in video games? I love zombies. I know if there was a zombie apocalypse, I think I ...

Hmmmmm...Confused...

I've been quite depressed recently, and as a result, my work, my life and all the bits inbetween seemed to have dropped in quality. Hell, it's not like anyone reads these anyway. But enough with the self-pity. There's a time and a place for...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Interview With ... Daniel Hardcastle, Creator of Nerdł

Nerdł is something I've been keeping my eye on. While I troll through mindless CoD:Black Ops top 10 "uber-uber-uber kills + blopsgasms" (don't judge me, judge the stereotype), Occasionally I find stuff that I actually enjoy. When I spied on...

 
 
 
 

DTIPBIJAYS...Hook, Line and Sinker

About PK493one of us since 2:53 PM on 04.12.2011

Alright, let's try this again.

My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.

Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.

I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?

So yeah, vidjo games.

Deus Ex Human Revolution
Batman Arkham City
Portal+Portal 2
Mafia II
Total War:Shogun 2
Rayman Advance
Pokemon Crystal
NightSky
Jurassic Park:Operation Genesis
Super Mario 64
House Of Dead III

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
