Bargain Bin Laden #38: Thrasher: Skate and Destroy

In the collective consciousness of skateboarding games, Tony Hawk has been the only one to hold the throne. There was never a rivalry, like with 2K Sports and EA Games. Challengers came and went, sure, but for the most part, they never got ...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #37: Second Sight

Psychic power in videogames was an idea that had not been fully explored by 2004, and still hasn't been fully whored out, strangely enough. It was a complete and utter shame then, that by some cruel stroke of dastardly coincidence, we ended...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #36: Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening

With Devil May Cry 4 hitting American shelves this past Tuesday, and leaping proudly into the hands of Europeans tomorrow, I thought it was high time we featured some of Dante's exploits in Bargain Bin Laden. I know, I know, you're all too ...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #35: Killzone

Ah, Killzone, how I weep for thee. Killzone is one of hype's most tragic victims, a game so built up as a "Halo killer" and so expected to be the next big thing in first person shooting, that it was never going to be looked upon k...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #34: Killer7

As the U.S. release of No More Heroes draws nigh, it's only appropriate that this week's Bargain Bin Laden take a look at Killer 7, which, for many gamers, served as an introduction to writer-director Suda51. Killer 7 received mixed reviews...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #33: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Ask anybody, I'm a massive Metal Gear Solid fan. For me, Hideo Kojima is a God when it comes to developing characters and storylines in games. This series stands next to Konami's other great line of titles, Silent Hill, and of course, Koei'...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #32: Resident Evil 4

Welcome to another edition of Bargain Bin Laden, where we bring you the best of the cheap in the world of games. While some of my previous choices have been quite obscure, today's edition is a game you should all be more than aware of. It w...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #31: Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior

The wares of Games Workshop have been a bone of contention throughout much of my life. Drawn in by the wonderful backdrops, the fantastic designs and the lure of an engrossing tabletop game, my only problem so far has been the fact that I'm...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #30: Sonic Advance

It's fair to say that Sonic the Hedgehog fell on hard times when the industry moved out of the 16bit era. Despite a few glimmers of hope, the once-beloved mascot never truly coped with the evolution of videogames and has become, for all int...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #29: XIII

The first person shooter genre has, for a long time, not been known for its wealth of engrossing, plot-heavy games. With the exception of Valve's Half-Life series, one would be right to think of FPS games as little more than bullet-riddled,...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #28: Indigo Prophecy

Bargain Bin Laden #27: Silent Hill 2

Oh, poor Aaron Linde. He doesn't realize what he's done. By lending the reins of BBL to me this week and approving the rabid horror enthusiast within to venerate Silent Hill 2, you may be stuck with one of the most long winded, overly excit...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #26: Taito Legends 1 & 2

[Hey all, Linde here. I know it's been awhile since I've been regular with the BBL updates, but what with review crew and Podtoid and all, keeping it up to date has been kinda tough. But rather than let the ol' column fizzle and die while I...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #25: Bushido Blade

You want a realistic game? It doesn't get much more realistic than Bushido Blade. Imagine a fighting game where if you take a solid hit, you're done. It wouldn't be much fun, now would it? That's where you're wrong. It's intense.Fighting as...   read

Bargain Bin Laden # 24: The Legend of Dragoon

As our revered Mr. Monocle informed us last week, the venerated Aaron Linde is in Budapest eating bears, as we speak! So, I was asked to cover this week's Bargain Bin Laden, and I humbly accepted. This week, I want to retrospectively wank t...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #23: Metal Arms: Glitch in the System

Hi gang, once again I'm holding down the fort while much of the staff are out of the office, which is why I'm covering Aaron Linde's Bargain Bin Laden post for today. I'm very pleased to be able to write it this week as well, for it gives m...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #22: Psychonauts

Psychonauts. Yeah, I know -- sort of like Beyond Good and Evil, one of those games that needs no introduction, that almost hourly enjoys some sort of running of the mouth by one journalist or another. I'm introducing it as such to take a bi...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #21: R-Type Final

Bargain Bin Laden #20: Gunstar Super Heroes

Today, BBL rolls up on the big two-oh. I was planning on some grand gesture to celebrate, like some sort of Destructoid team photo where we're all fighting each other while riding bears or something, but I hear that's illegal in these parts...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #19: Otogi

Bargain Bin Laden #17: Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga

There's a particular point in this week's BBL that I'm going to say now, because I'll invariably get kicked in the face for saying so -- let's get the face-kickin' out of the way as quick as possible. I hold firm the...   read

Bargain Bin Laden #16: Zone of the Enders

By the way, the boss fight in the vid in my previous post? Thats the optimum intended route, it takes 12 The good way to do it is to fire the laser and pause the game for 4 Because the only thing less polished than T3B code is the

I realy want to play Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain again, but I hate that you cant rewatch like half of the cutscenes in the game without starting a new which is hard to do when you spent dozens of hours unlocking all of the cool stuff! :/

Watched the first episode of Stranger Things, and they already killed off my favourite God damn it!
