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...

Duke Nukem Forever : Hail or Fail?

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

The exciting sets my Heart Flickering!

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 cant say that Im sort of Section 8 super fan. I never playe...

Making games is hard! Turns out it was the black background of my dialogue box that was making my framerate drop from 1000 fps to around 400, because even though its a 1 pixel texture it still makes a big impact when its created every Wild!
