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...

Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds (Omaha)

Some Podtoid "Artwork"

So having listened to some of the Podtoid shows I couldn't resist every now and again doing some "artwork" or in reality just very simple photo manipulations so I thought I'd put them out there, along with a sort of living art project of k...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Do Video Games Need Good Stories?

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!

In the digital age, it can be a hassle, and inconvenient to pull out the ol' SNES, dust off a couple games, and gamble on if they well work or not, let alone still have the battery left to keep your save file from 10 years ago. The solution...
