Nostalgia: So Much Better in Hindsight

Remember all those good times playing Galaga? First game of Frogger? That first playthrough of Final Fantasy 7? So do game devs, and they're going to get you to spend money on those memories. Now, the instant reaction for most people wh...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Revisiting Horror, a Resident Evil (2002) review

Today, the name �Resident Evil� can only be associated with a modern brand of derivative military shooters. This is true regarding the main entries of the series � that slowly, but consistently, shed their adventure legacy in favor of fas...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Comments of the Week VI: Comments Under Siege

I see comments of the week. Walking around like regular comments. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're comments of the week. From Ubisoft complains over Red Steel 2's 81% Metacritic...

 
 
 
 
 
 

What's in the box matters too...

I still remember opening my first modern computer game. We had just gotten a new Packard Bell (the dude at Staples had assured us we'd never need more than 2mb of video ram in our lives) and the next day my dad let me pick out a game at th...

 
 
 
 

Accomplishment Fatigue

It's been a long time since I've written a blog - these days I find it difficult to express my thoughts coherently. I used to write blogs all the time back on Gamespot, I'm not sure why it's been so difficult for me to do so these days... ...

 
 
 
 

ch-ch-ch-changes...

Anyway, if there's one thing I can't swallow it's these two tired, broken record statements; "it was just more of the same", and "it didn't feel like the first time". I've seen them time and time again and they are as monotonous as they a...

 
 
 
 

Cell Phone Look Up Makes It Possible To Track Numbers

Although mobile phones have helped greatly in knowing who is calling you (e.g. via cell phone look up), there has been a rise in the number of 'Unknown Caller' calls being made to mobile phones and it is only natural that this becomes an an...

 
 
 
 

Oh Destructoid, How I hated to depart with you.

Hello everyone. Again, I'm here. I didn't actually go anywhere. This thing that the cool kids are doing nowadays called "school" is really consuming my life. Not like the dark side though. Because at least they give you cookies. At school, ...

 
 
 
 

On Reflection: A Story of 'Trade-in Addiction'

I walk in the door and exchange hi's and hellos with the two behind the counter. "Got any trade-ins today, Alex?". Yes, they know me by name. "Nah...I'm just looking for now." Of course I have trade-ins. I plop the 4 games on the counter. ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Obscurer Tribune # 39

How to use the worn down game formula.

This will work with any game. It's already been proven it even works with tetris. Here is the basic form: I'm only, like, an hour in. But (game name here) is SO relentlessly terrible. A game has never worn me down like this. There's no r...

 
 
 
 

Free gas... and being a lady.

So... free gas. No, I'm not going to lend you my husband who also has free gas, but I've been playing MAG (apparently over 180 hours of it since it released) and I just vetted over to a new faction and I'm starting again as a level 1... ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

A (more definitive) review of sequels

Not long ago a certain blog teased the promise of an absolute, incontestable review of sequels. Drawn in by this succulent promise I read the blog hoping to find the ultimate critique. What did I get for my efforts? Nothing! Well a solid ...

Stuff, stockpiling and new blog

I look towards the Summer and I see nothing. An absolute drought of video-games. I'll be seeing Inception by Christopher Nolan at the IMAX, hopefully, but other than that I have no other plans. I'll be blogging everyday of forever from no...
