The Nostalgia Factor...Does It Still Exist?

Here's the thing with Duke Nukem Forever. (This is just a hypothesis) I believe that the only reason that has sold copies is because of the legacy of Duke Nukem 3D. The Destructoid review was told from the point of a gamer who cannot or ha...

 
 
 
 

Did LulzSec Leak Your Data?

Custom covers for Borderlands

I enjoyed the absolute hell out of Borderlands right up until that last expansion released and I lost any and all desire to play the game. But that doesn't change how much love I have for the time when I had a lot of love for playing Border...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Introductions and Shenanigans

I guess it's time to get my writing hobby off the ground. I'm surprisingly well versed in writing, but I don't often spend time actually doing it. So I guess that means I need to introduce myself and what I'll be doing here. My name is J...

 
 
 
 

CaptainBus: The helmet comes off.

Hey guys! It's a big superhero reveal! Just like all great superheroes, I have my alter ego. The catch is that I'm not quite as mild mannered, and I am now revealing my true form as I am now officially Destructoid staff. Oh yes! What doe...

 
 
 
 

RPG of the Year - 2006

The Critical Review Debate or...

Assuming Direct Control

There is a desire most of us have when playing a game to be able to change the worlds we are. We want to be able to make choices, take different routes and say our minds to this fictional world. Some games are able to deliver it at some e...
