XCOM 2 is 27 percent off at Green Man Gaming

A full-price 2K game? Never

Heading to PC next week is XCOM 2, the much-anticipated sequel to 2012's turn-based tactical strategy game. If you haven't tried Enemy Unknown yet, Humble Bundle has the game in its latest Firaxis bundle in the pay-what-you-want tier. The b...


The WoW Killer...

This always happens on the sequel or expansion of any loved product, the inevitable bad review claiming how a product had ruined the franchise. I won't go to the extent of claiming that the entire Warcraft franchise has been ruined by WoW:...


What a PC Snob thinks of a Console Gamer...

There seems to be so much animosity or paranoia form console gamers as seen in this Jim Sterling special: http://www.destructoid.com/battlefield-3-won-t-look-as-good-on-ps3-dice-says-duh--203987.phtml?s=100#comments So I decided to clea...


On EA's Origin, Steam, and sensationalism in media.

RE: http://www.destructoid.com/crysis-2-removed-from-steam-to-make-ea-s-origin-look-good-203799.phtml Dear Jim (and subsequently, gamers everywhere), I don't often disagree with you, but this time I fear you have been sucked into a vort...


Expectations for Dawn of War 3 from a fanboy

YOU HAVE CAPTAIN DIOMEDES. OK OK OK , LET ME TALK, EVERYONE SHUT THE CHAOS UP. (no I will not apologize for that big ass picture, it's manly.) k. k. um... ok.. k. *cracks hands while looking around* k. What I reallly really ...


Duke Nukem Forever : Hail or Fail?

Hell froze over and Duke Nukem finally got released and it got tits in it. Unfortunately that's the best thing I'l lhave to say about it. The graphics are bad, the textures look like its straight from the nineties, who knows, maybe the...


How to Build a PC! 2011 Style Part 3

Well well well, we have some idea that we can put together a smoking system for very little $$$. and its been this way for some time. I believe we have consoles slowing down graphic development for this. Of Course trying to play Arma...


I Think It's Time For Me To End PC Gaming...='(

It's a sad day. I feel ashamed. There are two reasons why I probably must stop PC gaming. 1 "I don't actually have a PC, I have a laptop" 2 "I just don't have enough money" This problem arose when I bought Brink on PC and when I install...


Diablo II Hardcore is still addicting after 10+ years

It has been a very, very long time since I've last had a chance to write a blog on Destructoid, so I find it only fitting that I reemerge writing about something that I haven't had a chance to play in many years and have recently rediscov...


Games I'd like to see remade: Syndicate

Back in 1993 Syndicate was a Isometric Shooter in which you controlled a team of cyborgs and navigated them around a small town/city-scape map to achieve various objectives all in the name of your corporate overlords. It was a fun game an...


E3 Approaches: All Eyes on Eastern Europe

With the Witcher 2 currently eating up most avid PC gamer's time (and hopefully the President's), we've witnessed yet another ambitious game come out of Eastern Europe. The Witcher 2 followed in the footsteps of other games such as Crysis...


The Witcher 2 Is Simply Gorgeous

If you've played it, then you know what i'm talking about. If you haven't, then this post will hopefully convince you to buy it. Recorded the following videos using fraps which hurt the framerate a bit.


The exciting sets my Heart Flickering!

It's been a while since I have written a new blog ... and that's a good thing. In the small break I reflected and realised a few things; one that previous blogs where too long. And two, droning on about the facts of piracy can be a little a...


Portal 2 Haikus

Defective Turrets' Lives are short and conflagrant. Oh, are you still there? Ah, Repulsion Gel Your delightful bounciness Takes me to new heights. Don't cross Cave Johnson. That man has combustible lemons. He'll find you.


Why TF2 has endured for so long in the PC era.

So many of you have heard about TF2 right? It's hard to mention PC gaming and not have someone who doesn't know what TF2 is... but on the off chance that you may not know... TF2 is a Cel-Shaded FPS that blends traditional FPS tropes wit...


First Impressions: Section 8 Prejudice (PC)

Section 8: Prejudice is a game I feel will probably be overlooked. With bigger releases around the release of S8P, it will probably go ignored. To me, this is quite a shame. I can�t say that I�m sort of Section 8 super fan. I never playe...


APB Reloaded Open Beta Dated

On monday, the guys over on the GamersFirst Developers Blog updated with a good bundle of information about their immediate plans for the future of APB:Reloaded. This comes with the big announcement that the game will be entering the open...


Building a Better MineCraft...

-lifted from my website shoobop.com as it's one of the less 'rambling on about crap' things I've written- If you've spent any time online but not only on Facebook (or even on there in some cases) you'll have heard of MineCraft, an endles...


Gaming Laptops

I will very soon be at the time in my life where me and my trusty old xbox 360 will have to part ways. We've had a good run, lots of laughs and memories, but I will be going to college in the fall, and will more than likely need to leave th...

Got the true ending in Dead Its not as chalk full of content as Binding of Isaac (not many games are), but its basically an isometric BoI in ways both big and Incredibly good and hoping it catches on a bit more soon enough!


Seeing GotG reviews had me thinking that Id be perfectly fine with watching a lets play rather than play it, which got me thinking - why arent streams and lets plays treated like emulation or other copyright infringment? Not for it, just
