Some Words on Platformers

I've finally been released from the grasp of BioShock: Infinite which is seriously the best game I've played for a long, long time and I can tell it's going to be my personal GOTY (unless something really surprises me) and I'd very much lik...

 
 
 
 

C-Blog recaps of 3/30/13 + 3/31/13 + Saviorgasms

Did you all have a happy Easter? Eat a bunch of ham and candy? Lovely. Do any of you even know what Easter is really about? Let ole Phil take you on a history lesson. In 1761, Jesus was born to a whore of a woman, who was a virgin. Her ...

 
 
 
 

Making Sense of BioShock: Infinite

Warning: All of the spoilers beyond this point. BioShock has always been a franchise praised for its story, and perhaps for Infinite this is most true. Indeed the only common criticism I have heard is that there is literally too much going...

 
 
 
 

The Metal Gear Series as a Newcomer

When I bought the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection I was thrilled, I finally had a new game to play after having surgery. I had read and watched many reviews on all the games, as I was told it was a great series, but had never played a single...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Weekend Warriors: A Break From Bioshock

Fresh in the Heels of Style Savvy: Trendsetters

While all the hardcore gaming ladies and gents were verbally exploding about the mastery of BioShock Infinite this week, I started Style Savvy: Trendsetters. Good heavens, what did I get myself into? Initially I was only able to scratch ...

My scary first blog!

Hey y'all, my name is Daniel, and this is my worryingly terrible opening blog! I've been a reader on this site since one fateful night looking at metacritic and finding that Destructoid gave GTA 4 8/10, which may not seem like a massive de...

Skyward Sword and the complex feelings it evokes

So, I'm late to the party on Skyward Sword. I traded my Wii in shortly after the release of Warioland: Shake it! due to the lack of interest I had in any upcoming games. I recently purchased a Wii U for a nice price and wanted to go back ...

Snesberry pi. Emulation done right!

Is it time for Super Luigi to make a stand?

Luigi, the most famous second-hand guy out there. We all know of him....as Mario's brother but this guy's popularity is more than some 'main' characters of other video game series! Since Nintendo has declared the year of 2013 to be the "Yea...
