Some thoughts on Dust 514 and Defiance

One thing that I've felt has been lacking on Dtoid has been the spotty, hard-to-find news about MMOs in general and about these games in specific. Though the news, as almost always has been the case on Dtoid, has been great, I feel like the...

 
 
 
 

Trophies, Coins, Achievements - OH MY!

Once upon a time, great feats of gaming had no Achievements, Trophies, or Coins to rub in people's faces. What's the point, without them, right? Nintendo calls them 'Mythical Rewards', despite introducing them with the 3DS, and making it ne...

 
 
 
 

A Warning From History

Randy Pitchford REALLY likes Duke Nukem, which is totally understandable, considering he got his start in the industry working at 3DRealms making Duke3D, but I'm afraid he may be a bit too enthusiastic, since whenever he's said anything abo...

 
 
 
 

Courting Female Gamers

Every gamer has their own 'flavor'; a genre addiction that constantly calls out. All you have to do is look at the games you own to find out exactly what scratches your itch; for me, bullets do the trick. When Quake II came out I tore thr...

 
 
 
 

Duke Nukem Forever Review

Duke Nukem Forever, a game i had personally been looking forward too as I had grown quite tired and monotone towards today's 'Modern Shooter' with a pallet choice of colours that range from light, sandy brown, to dark grey. I welcomed this ...

 
 
 
 

A New Study Tells Men What [Some] Women Want

A new report just came out, detailing how female gamers are being largely ignored, despite the fact that more and more women are getting involved with video games. The entire report costs money to read so I have not read it, but Industry G...

Breasts rule everything around me, BREAM.

The “Girls in Games” debate is a tired one, to be sure. In decades past we’ve seen armies of pixelated DD breasts developed, perpetuated, and fought over. Always the argument boils down to progressives calling game females hurtful stereoty...

 
 
 
 

Mix It Up: RPG Hybrids

After catching this post about Wizorb, an Arkanoid-like game with role playing elements, something occurred to me: I really dig it when two different genres make sweet love to each other and have a baby. Sure, that baby may grow up to have ...

 
 
 
 

Movies, videogames and (un)reasonable expectations

Hello there, it's me. Yes, I know, I have been gone for quite some time now, haven't I? Why? I was kind of busy working for a gaming website and now I'm working for another Gaming Website, that focuses on Sega and thus gives me some time to...

 
 
 
 

EA vs Fans: Round 2, FIGHT!

So it would seem that EA is trying to pull a fast one on fans of Battlefield 3 by only letting some fans who pre-order get special guns and ammo, and giving everyone that pre-orders a map pack that everyone who doesn't reserve the game wi...

 
 
 
 

Chasing the Golden Carrot: Aiming for the Top Edition

Nowhere is the evidence of companies chasing the golden carrot more prominent in today’s videogame industry than the MMO genre, and it’s Emperor; World of Warcraft. Ever since it released years ago pretenders and wannabe’s have sprung up ...

 
 
 
 

Untapped Potential Revisited: Genre Generalization

Two years ago today I wrote and posted my first blog on Destructoid. I'd been wondering after two years here on the C-Blog circuit what I could do to adequately commemorate this "blog birthday". Then it hit me. Two years. Two years. ...

 
 
 
 

At least try (LA Noire fan art)

After six long months of silence, a new fan art. This time for L.A. Noire: 10 cases in and I still don't know what to make of L.A. Noire. The technology's great, and so does its beautiful recreation of 1940s Los Angeles, but repetitivene...

Reveiw LA Noire

LA Noire, what to say about such a game. From what I've read before I purchased the game I expected awesome action and technology that would blow your socks off. What I got was much different. First I have to say that if you love Grand Thef...

 
 
 
 

Taste Test: L.A. Noir

Some of us are known to do it from time to time while others find the act contradictory and absurd, listening to music while playing video games. To be honest with you, I only do it on very rare occasions but I started thinking abo...

 
 
 
 

Motion controls and marketing (Shortblog)

I'm going to get this out of the way right out of the gate: I think Kinect sucks. I've played several games with it, I've followed Microsoft's conference today, and I still think it sucks ass. It's laggy, there are no buttons, and it cost...

Whose Idea Was it To Make Ezio 50?

Fable Is just Like Heavy Rain.

This is a revelation that Caiters so kindly bestowed upon me one evening. My mind was blown. Shards of conceptual glass flew across the now blank canvas that was once my brain. A gap is all that was left in my skull, like a new born babe r...
