Zelda Week: The Unholy Triforce

Given the Zelda series' proven quality, time and again, it's hard for anyone to say anything bad about it as a whole. Even if you disagree with the aesthetics of a certain title, such as the cel-shading of Wind Waker or the psuedo realism...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Contestoid: Who wants Sequence on Steam?

Full Disclaimer: I have pimped Sequence a lot. I've done this entirely because it's a fantastic title and I fully believe in supporting studios which do good, especially indies. My first contact with Jason Wishnov was contacting him for X...

Online Passes: An Explanation & Solution

Let's face it: Online Passes or practically any other scheme publishers come up with to try to curtail the used market are never going to be popular with gamers. No matter how small the incentive is or how miniscule the hassle of attainin...

Villains: Evil like no other

[Last week, I asked you to write anything you wanted about videogame antagonists. Today's blog is from meteorscrap, who points to a lesser known Final Fantasy Tactics as an example of a true, developed villain. Want to see your own blog o...

 
 
 

Bringing Castlevania into the Third Dimension

This was just a quick idea I had. I wanted to get it down in text before it slipped away from me. Alright, let's not mince words here. While Lord of Shadows was a good game, it had its own share of problems... Not the least of which was th...

 
 
 
 

Improvements, Part 2

Okay, Destructoid. I know that this isn't the weekly topic, and I already made some suggestions a while back. Now that I've had a few weeks to think about the subject, I've got a few new suggestions, ones I don't think I saw mentioned. Feel...

 
 
 
 

Luckiest Studio Ever: Ninja Theory

Ninja Theory is the luckiest studio alive. The fact that Tameem Antoniades had the balls to blame consumers for Ninja Theory's woes, woes meaning Ninja Theory is still working instead of expanding, basically says all that needs to be said a...

Relaxation: Docile Body, Active Mind

While I've got a warehouse job where I'm management, it's a far cry from simply sitting at a desk. The warehouse in which I work is massive, and my duties require me to traverse the length of the place multiple times a day in between bout...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Future of Gaming

Alright, so I've discussed why retail bans of games won't work as a way of stopping digital distribution, as well as touching on the issue of how GameStop can prevent themselves from going the way of Blockbuster or HMV. That leaves me with ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Threat of a Retail Ban Is Without Merit

Back in July, I wrote an article about Digital Distribution. And the thing is, I noticed a common theme in the comments for the article: The fact that retailers, specifically GameStop, could crush a revolution in digital distribution befo...

 
 
 
 

Contestoid: Gears of War 3, It's a-gettin' close!

Contest Information! Now, for this one, I've decided we'll do something a little bit different. Like always, I'm going to come up with a random, painful, or otherwise aggravating task for you, the contestant, to participate in! Or, in th...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Improvements: I've got ideas, too!

Hey Destructoid. Look, I love you. I really do. My employer probably pays me for about an hour a day to browse you. But there's a few things that you could do which would make me love you even more. Moar Promoted Blogs I know not everythi...

 
 
 
 

Contestoid: Gears of War 3, OW MY WALLET edition!

So, I picked a winner for my Lie for a Wii contest, and it turns out that ManWithNoName lives in Brazil. It turns out that there's a tax on gaming in Brazil, and in order for me to honour my $100 contest prize, I'd have to spend about $50...

 
 
 
 

PDP Versus Pad Review: A Layman's Perspective

The PDP Versus Pad was originally available as the PDP Marvel Versus Pad. I feel it's necessary to point that out, because I'll admit that when the pad first came out, that was one of the two factors which made me decide against picking one...

About meteorscrapone of us since 11:18 AM on 08.18.2010

My name is meteorscrap.

Occasionally I'll post random thoughts and musings here which are too long, too detailed, or otherwise don't fit in the comments section. Given the length of some of the stuff I've left as a comment, you can well imagine what I consider long.

Do you like words? 'cause I got a lot for you.
