Xbox 360: I Now Have One

This past weekend I decided to buckle down and get a Xbox 360 along with some original Xbox games since I never owned the original system. I also played a metric shitload of demos from Xbox Live. Here are some brief initial impressions fro...

 
 
 
 
 

Fav NES Ninja Gaiden Gameplay Moments?

Some of you might remember a video game music video I did a while back featuring A Boy and His Blob... Well, I'm currently cutting a new video game music video with clips from Ninja Gaiden I-III for the NES and was wondering if you fellow ...

 
 
 

OMFG 2 Girls 1 Cup: The Show

Just found this on Channel 101... Absolutely hilarious. Imagine if a Cup has 2 girls for a roomate, but his secret desire is to have them do things in him as in the infamous web video. Thoughts?

 
 
 
 

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars (PC): Review

Being a long time fan of the Command & Conquer franchise, I decided to try out the latest entry in the series with my new laptop. Even with a slick presentation, HD cut-scenes, and neat multiplayer options, the game doesn't feel radically d...

 
 
 
 

Retro VGM + Podcast = Suck?!

Back when I was in college, I did a videogame music podcast called Do the Mario. I had so much fun doing it that shortly thereafter I did a VGM podcast entitled The Super Koopa Troopa Show and briefly did a videogame preview podcast for pla...

 
 
 

Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun (PC): Review

While my gaming has slowed down lately, the latest game I've been into is something a little retro- Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun for the PC. It's the second game in the Command and Conquer trilogy which makes up the core GDI VS NOD story...

 
 
 

Dtoid PDX Bad Movie Party

So, last night I held a bad movie party featuring some Destructoid members (cutiehoney, Toneman, and king3vbo). The flick we watched was The Fly 2, made in the late 1980's and starring Eric Stoltz and Daphne Zuniga (the chick from Spaceball...

 
 
 

Rocking Gaming Podcasts

While I'm not writing semi-often posts on my Destructoid blog, I, like other people, have a (gasp!) day job. Mine is data entry at the moment. One upside of it is that I can listen to my iPod Shuffle as I work and I typically fill it to the...

 
 
 

Star Wars Galaxies Trial (PC): The End

After attempting to fire up SWG a few more times, I've run into unplayable levels of lag yet again, despite the fact I have a 4MBPS cable modem connection. So ends my saga with Star Wars Galaxies. A bit of a shame too, since I enjoyed it a ...

 
 
 
 

Star Wars Galaxies Trial (PC): Day 4

I popped on to do some more questing with Milkshake Man, my Level 8 Medic, when SWG lagged as it had never lagged before. Perhaps it was the time of day. Perhaps my computer had too much suckitude. Perhaps it was SWG's way of telling me to ...

 
 
 

Star Wars Galaxies Trial (PC): Days 2 + 3

After leveling up Milkshake Man, my Mon Calamari Medic, to Level 8, I decided to complete a few more side quests before jumping back onto the main kinda lame Han Solo questathon. One thing I am impressed about with SWG is the humor to the ...

 
 
 

Star Wars: Galaxies Trial(PC): Day 1

After playing a bit of EVE Online and almost passing out from boredom, I decided to try another sci-fi MMO. One set in a galaxy far, far away. One with Wookies. One called Star Wars Galaxies. Despite not being totally into WOW, I am having...

 
 
 

LOTR: Return of the King (PS2): Impressions

Call me a cheap bastard, but I can't pass up a $10 or so game if I am remotely interested in it. Years ago I played the Two Towers game for the PS2 and thought it was OK, but nothing special. After playing a few hours of Return of the King,...

 
 
 

EVE Online Trial (PC): The Start (And End?)

Having mixed feelings from my brief foray into the free World of Warcraft trial, I jumped from fantasy to sci-fi with the trial for EVE Online. Playing for a few hours reminded me of lyrics to Elton John's seminal pop hit, Rocket Man. It'...

 
 
 

OMG! Boy and His Blob Music Video

So, after finally getting my copy of Sony Vegas to work on Windows Vista, I cut together a brief music video of A Boy and His Blob to a cover of the pop song "Umbrella." Love it? Hate it? Post below! :)

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Final Thoughts

So the other day I logged into my WOW trial account to discover I had run out of days. Was this possible? Could Blizzard have miscounted my days adventuring of Azeroth? Will Milkshakeman, my Level 11 Human Priest, fade away into online obs...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Days 9 + 10

So after leveling up Milkshake, my Human Priest, to Level 11 near the Eastvale Logging Camp, I took the long trek by foot up to Stormwind and took a dwarven subway to Ironforge, a bustling dwarven metropolis. The surrounding ice-cold mounta...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Day 8

Having taken the long trek from Duskwood up to Goldshire, I ventured beyond the Eastvale Logging Camp and into the Redridge Mountains. Here, I met a similar fate as in Duskwood-- death by spiders. Despite WOW's promises of a big open envir...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Days 6 + 7

Since Milkshakeman the Priest has been in the Goldshire area for far too long, I decided to explore Westfall. On the way to Westfall, I stopped at the massive metropolis of Stormwind. Wow, what a clusterfuck of a city. Tons of people movin...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Days 4 + 5

Venturing into the sparse logging camps east of Goldshire, I sent Milkshakeman the Priest to grind a bit to gain some experience. After an hour or two, he went up from Level 6 to Level 9. Some of the quest flaws are starting to creep in a...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Day 3

3 days into World of Warcraft and I already have a third character set up, and one I'm going to stick with: a Human Priest named Milkshakeman in the Uther server. Why so many changes? Because I found the intro quests for the Trolls and Nig...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Day 2

Sorry this post is a bit late-- work has been kinda hectic lately. This post is meant to cover the playing I did yesterday. Not very satisfied with my Troll Shaman character, I decided to roll a new character: a Night Elf Hunter. I leveled...

 
 
 

WOW 14 Day Trial (PC): Day 1

World of Warcraft had been beckoning my call for quite some time now. I had been a fan of the franchise since the first game in the series, Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. When I heard a MMO set in the Warcraft universe was going to be released, I...

 
 
 

GameTap (PC): Impressions

Seeing as I just got a new PC laptop, I have been messing around with a service I have wanted to try out, but couldn't on my ancient desktop PC: GameTap. GameTap is an on-demand online service for retro and current PC, console and arcade g...
