Picture by Chris McLennan I recently created a game for my Interactive Narrative class and I want your opinion on it before I submit it on Monday. The game is called Floyd�s Tomb and it was created using TADS3. Just download the Floyd's T...

 
 
 

For Those About to Die: Blu Team!

The Engineer from the Red Team of the popular Valve shooter Team Fortress 2 contacted me today to ask if he could guest star in my blog and do an entry for Destructoid�s Monthly Musings. Since it had been a while since I�ve done a Monthly...

 
 
 

I ACCEPT YOUR CHALLENGE YA DOUCHE!: Jaws Edition

I didn't get my NES until I was Six years old (1992). However, I have lots of memories of playing the system at my cousins house before I ever got one. In fact, I'd go as far to say that if I didn't fall in love with the NES at my cousins...

 
 
 

Trials 2: Second Edition Review

This is the default camera in the game and my personal favorite, the action cam. I�m sure everyone has heard about Steam�s massive Indie game sale going on this week. I personally have purchased 3 games from the sale after reading Rev Ant...

 
 
 

Nothing says Friday like new games!

Ahhh, I love the smell of new polycarbonate on a Friday afternoon. I think I came home with a good haul this afternoon, what do you think? I should be honest, only Mad World is actually mine. My girlfriend is the one who picked up the col...

 
 
 

Gears of War 2 Review

The original Gears of War was the first true Killer-App for the Xbox 360. For many gamers, it was their first taste of the next generation of gaming. It was quite a fun game too but it had its faults. Its single player campaign lacked a d...

 
 
 

The NXE Beta - My Impressions

So I got the email last night stating that I was accepted into the New Xbox Experience Beta and could expect to receive the update around 2 pm today. Well, around 3:00 I woke up and was ready to play more Gears 2 with my lady. In my grogg...

 
 
 

I'm a Total Mark

Darkwatch It's not something I'm proud (or ashamed) to admit, but I am a Mark. A video game Mark specifically. Lots of you are probably marks too. Whats a mark, you may be asking? Let's let Urban Dictionary tell us: A person identified a...

 
 
 

The System Works [NVGR]

I really cannot state how happy I am with the results of today's election. And it's not just because the candidate I voted for won. It's much greater than that. Even if McCain won I'd be feeling the same thing I'm feeling right now (ok, ma...

 
 
 
 

Rush plays Rockband

Rush stopped by the Colbert Report recently and had a run in backstage with their digital counterparts in the form of Rockband. They played their hit song Tom Sawyer on Expert Difficulty and well, I'll let you see what happens. They do pret...

 
 
 

Flagship Studios Still in Business, kind of.

Why Bill Roper why??? Between E3 and real life I've been kind of busy as of late so I'm unsure if this was ever reported on Destructoid. According to a press release dated July 14th 2008, Flagship studios is still in business, although th...

 
 
 

I want to give Nintendo my monies but I can't....

Ok, so heres the deal. My girlfriend has been craving Wii Fit ever since it came out. I told her I'd get it for her on launch day but because I'm a miserable fuck I forgot to preorder it in time. Ever since then I've been scouring the ear...

 
 
 

Quick Review: SoulCalibur (XBLA)

SoulCalibur as we all know is one of the greatest fighting games of all time. The Xbox Live Arcade edition is no different. I downloaded it last week along with Penny Arcade Episode 1 and guess which one I've played more of? Everyone k...

 
 
 

Battlefield Bad Company: I haz it

It's arrived! I got the email from Hamza saying it was in the mail only yesterday, so imagine my surprise when I check my mailbox and find this: I shat brix for sure. Hamza also sent me his business card, which is double sided awesom...

 
 
 
 

Happy Fathers Day Destructoid!

Not everybody can be an awesome father like Gary Concelmo or Yoj1mbo. If you're failing at fatherhood then let Darth Vader show you how it's done. I'd also like to wish a Happy Fathers day to all the Dtoid dads out there. And a very spe...

 
 
 

Halo FNF: Alex is a no show Edition

So apparently Vexed Alex has a new addition to the family and he won't be able to make it to FNF tonight so hosting duties have fallen on me. Like Alex I have no custom maps or game types so bring with you whatever you want to play. I mys...

 
 
 

Poll results in at Pop Rox

The esteemed Dr. Boa has posted the results to yesterdays front page poll. If you read the comments in that thread than the results are unsurprising. What is surprising is what the Neogaf users had to say about the same poll. Go to Pop Ro...

 
 
 

Superman Returns is Underrated

Ever since I beat GTA IV last week there has been a void in my life. I’ve been to GameStop 3 different times to try and fill that void. The first time I picked up Saints Row. My first impressions of the game were that it was going to be ...

 
 
 

Worms Open Warfare 2: First Impressions

I made this my team's flag in the flag editor. Mr. Destructoid FTMFW! I’ve been a Worms fan ever since Worms 2 came out for PC way back in 1998. Since then there have been numerous sequels and spin offs to the series and unlike most fan...

 
 
 

GTA IV vs Saints Row: First Impressions

Because Saints Row is so old I won’t do an out and out First Impressions blog. Rather, I will compare it to the masterpiece that is Grand Theft Auto IV, which I recently completed. The first thing that really jumps out at me is how much...

 
 
 

Grand Theft Auto IV Review

Sorry for the fuzzy shot, I could have sworn I could get my stats straight from the Rockstar Social Club but I guess I was wrong. How do you review a game that everybody is playing and most everybody has already reviewed? Hell if I know....

 
 
 
 

Bored? Free Rice!

What I've got here may not be new but a quick search of the Cblogs revealed nothing so I figured I'd throw this out there. Free Rice is a game where the higher you score, the more rice is donated to the UN World Food Hunger Program. Accor...

 
 
 

Dtoid Patch: Not Lost in the Mail Edition

If you check out the comments in Yashoki's latest blog you will see how I was concerned at having not yet received my patch in the mail. Well, not even a half an hour later I checked my mail on my way out to work and low and behold, it has ...

 
 
 

Educate Yourself: My Time With Splatterhouse

As a kid, my parents were very strict with what sort of media their two little boys could get their hands on. So when I was a kid, the only way I could play violent games such as Splatterhouse, Doom and Mortal Kombat was to go to a friend�s...

 
 
 
 

GTA 4 Top of the Pile on Xbox Live

This is my current wallpaper. I think it's pretty badass, if you like it too, enjoy. Thats right, according to computerandvideogames.com, GTA 4 has topped CoD4 and Halo 3 on the Xbox Live activity list. This news isn't surprising to me. T...

 
 

About DaedHead8one of us since 8:06 PM on 12.18.2006



What's up Destructoid?
My name is Sean McLoughlin and I've been sent from the futurepast to march with my fellow robots to victory. For Niero!

My favorite games can be numerous (as I'm sure is true of most here at Dtoid), but my all time favorites are Final Fantasy VI, Diablo II, Bioshock, Braid, Demon's Souls and Metal Gear Solid. I never rent games and I rarely trade in or sell the games I buy so I have a pretty massive game collection. For the sake of space I'll just tell you to check out my Backloggery account which I have linked below.

I'm a video game designer and an RPI graduate with a degree in Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences. When I'm not working with my development group Darkroom Games or gaming you can probably find me reading a science fiction/fantasy novel. My favorite authors are George RR Martin, Terry Brooks, Garth Nix and Terry Goodkind. I'm also a big fan of movies, my all time favorite movie/director is Reservoir Dogs/Tarantino. I love Professional Wrestling, Y2J SAVE US! My favorite band is obviously The Grateful Dead although my musical tastes are quite varied. I listen to everything from Modest Mouse to Wu-Tang Clan.

Bored? Why not try one of the games I've made:
Floyd's Tomb
Season of Thorns

Law of Thermal Dynamics interviewed me, check it out!
