Toy Factor

One thing from the 90s that we no longer see on the back of video game boxes - something that I can't help but miss because of how endearing it was - is a feature list of moves a character can do. I bet most of you have noticed it at ...

 
 
 

Video game locations I'd actually like to visit???

You're up late watching E3. The next big company has just started the next big conference. You see the stage. The lights dim, as the camera switches to what's about to appear on the screen. A few seconds of darkness. What you're then ...

 
 
 

Partage entre amis?

It's been a real weird thing we've got going here since 2006. Sites like Destructoid are pretty much just unorganized book clubs for video games. One with members casually dropping by and participating at their own pace, where the dis...

 
 
 

Some nuanced thoughts on Bloodborne

Have you ever jumped into doing something so wildly unlike you, it feels like it might change your life forever? Yeah, me neither. But this month, March of 2018, I decided to take a couple baby steps out of my video game comfort zone....

 
 
 

Mega Man Bitchin'

2D platformers. They used to be everywhere. Then they died. The end! Except it wasn't. A small decade ago, they slowly started to make a return, and since then it became clear that they were here to stay. Not only that, but they argua...

 
 
 
 
 

10 years, 10 things, 10 members

10 years Hello, my brain is on fire. What do you do when that happens? Put it out, maybe, if you're a dull wanker who fears your own genitals! Now the rest of us, we ride that shit as far as we can, like a fiery tidal wave, on a ...

 
 
 

Dangoblog Legacyâ„¢

I haven't blogged since July. It would be really flattering if anyone here has noticed, but either way, now that I've brought it to your attention, you might be wondering if there's a reason for that. Truth is, I'm pretty much done bl...

 
 
 

Better with Age: Gotcha!

There I stood, in a grassy field marked by the footprints of an ancient creature, ready to take my first step into a new experience. It did not take long until I had selected my prey. Determined, I prepared my net and waited for ...

 
 
 

E3: The Best Ones (imo obv.)

Not much of an introduction needed here, as the title says it all. Still, to be a bit more precise, I will pick the game that I am the most excited for from each conference. Except EA and the PC show, both of which I skipped and neith...

 
 
 

E3: Most Wanted

Everyone's favourite commercial break is right around the corner, and it's time to do something similar to what I (and many others) did last year, which is basically writing down a "wishlist" for E3. I'll try my best to make this one ...

 
 
 

No sir, I don't like it...

This is my vengeance.You knew it was coming. Those of you who read my previous blog back in April, you all knew, deep inside, that this fateful day would arrive. Gone are the simple times where you would smugly sit back and chuckle at my fu...

 
 
 

We need chat back and HERE'S WHY!!!

As you might have noticed, Destructoid has gone through some sort of second puberty lately. It was a weird and gross and uncomfortable time for everyone, but I'd say the whole thing was worth it in the end. That is except one thing: W...

 
 
 

Thick as Thieves: Sailing under a Black Flag

BOOOOOTAAAAAYYYYY!!!   Has there ever been any sort of thief cooler than a pirate? I don't think so! If you gotta steal, sailing around, blasting down enemy ships and straight up taking all their shit by force is the proper ...

 
 
 

Ask me everything!

I have absolutely no clue why this is a popular thing to do right now, but here's another Dtoid AMA for those of you who somehow still have any questions left in you. I will accept any kind of question, but I might bullshit a few repli...

 
 
 

Well I like it...

Opinions are like assholes - mine is the only right one!   Sorry, let me start over... Sometimes, people disagree with each other. Sometimes, these disagreements can be over something as simple as entertainment. Sometim...

 
 
 

Reservoir Cocks - A Dtoid Payday Playdate!

  Two in the Mr. Pink, one in the Mr. Stink Greetings, people-like creatures! April's Fools day may still be in full swing in certain parts of the world, but there's nothing foolish about what I'm about to announce.  Se...

 
 
 

Where is BFAZ?

Last year, around the time that I started my current life as a young, unemployed hobo, I decided to use more of my spare time writing blogs on Destructoid. It seemed like an ideal way to spend some of the massive amounts of free ...

 
 
 

Dango's Favourite Food (NVGR)

  Hello Destructoid, and welcome to a very special blog! Writing about interactive entertainment is a lot of fun, and it's something that I intend to do more in the future. However, sometimes you need to take liberties with what...

 
 
 

My experience with Legacy of Kain: Defiance

Merry Christmas everyone, or at least you'd think it was, seeing as this is a super late Secret Santa related blog that I probably could've easily written ages ago. It's a task that's been hanging over my head for a while now, an...

 
 
 

THE MAGNIFICENT NINE OF THIS TRUCK TOID

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU MOTHER FU *ahem* Happy 9th Anniversary, Destructoid! While I haven't even been around for half as much time, it certainly feels like an online home to me. Lots of good times have been had, both in the front page com...

 
 
 

Original Ape Escape team still in touch, has dinner

If you use Twitter and have any interest in video games, I strongly recommend that you follow Shuhei Yoshida. That man is a prime example of the kind of executive that benefits any industry, with his down-to-earth attitude and cle...

 
 
 

Happy New Crémant: Rise of the Octokorra

A lot of people have been writing big, ballin blogs about the games they've enjoyed in the year 2014, which have mostly included games from that very same year. I like following trends, so I've been wanting to make one as well. O...

 
 
 
 

Boss Fight Appreciation Zone - ROUND 4

Check out the others!   You're struggling. The battlefield has not shown you mercy, and you find yourself getting increasingly exhausted, as fierce enemies overwhelm you and grand obstacles stand before you. At times, it m...

 
 
 

El Dango's 2015 Wanted Games Most Also

(DISCLAIMER: I have no idea when most of these games are actually going to come out, but if they all hit 2015, that would be swell) Hello, it's me! Jinx's blog had the very fortunate effect of putting a new game (Hellraid) on my r...

 
 
 

Fangs for the Memories: Hunter Hunted

The year was Windows 95. The grass was blue, the sky was green and the birds were barking. Pixels were as big as bricks, and I had to walk several kilograms to get to the glue factory every Thursday. Times were rough. Good thing we ha...
