Hotels Just Don't Cater For Gamers!!!!!

After four days of excrutiating boredom, living out of a hotel room with work I am finally going to head off home tonight. Hotels are strange places, theres the whole thing of being based in a room that 1000 people might have been in before...

 
 
 
 

Why does Facebook mean so much to these idiots?

I can honestly take or leave social networking sites. I usually find myself logging in and staying logged in most of the day, just for something to look at when I'm bored. I like to see how some of my school colleagues are doing and try and...

 
 
 

Fake Forum Soccer Fans Make My Blood Boil

As an Englishman I think that the USA and Britain are different when it comes to sports. American sports appear to involve or encourage higher scoring with plenty of stoppages, time-outs and breaks, in part to do with the nature of the spor...

 
 
 

'Negative' Achievements on '360 discourage douchery?

It appears that EA sports are using the popular achievements system on the xbox 360 to highlight douchery amongst people playing their games. This is something that I only semi noticed myself and a friend later highlighted to me. The game ...

 
 
 
 

Dodging the Wii Bullet

I wrote a blog a while ago called 'disillusionment with the Wii' which basically described how I traded my Wii in for and Xbox-360 because I was sick of the low quality of games available for the console and the patronising attitude that Ni...

 
 
 

Quality standing the test of time: Evolution

I opened my wardrobe yesterday morning and realised that a couple of the shirts that I still wear for work are over ten years old. Aside from being a little faded they are still in perfectly good condition, and I wear them at least once a f...

 
 
 

Why do I keep getting banned from forums?

Forums and the people I interact with on forums tend to make me look at myself as a person- there are so many different types of people out there that go and interact on forums that it can be enlightening as well as annoying. On a forum you...

 
 
 

Sods Law in on-line gaming

I have a chocolate labrador retriever called 'Campbell' (after Evil Dead Actor Bruce) that could fill a novel of 'Marley and me' proportions. This is the lovable little brute that did the biggest and wettest crap I have seen in a long time ...

 
 
 

On-line cheat: Please do me a favour everyone

Hi guys, I finally battled my way to my first cup final on FIFA Ultimate Team (xbox 360) without a booking, with a 80-70-70 team and without using a game modifying card (That's good!). The guy I played in the cup final had a much better te...

 
 
 

Life getting in the way of gaming

Usually after listening to an Episode of 'Retroforce Go' I find myself wanting to play one of the games that they have been discussing. It must be the enthusiasm that they put into their love of the games, but it is also a lot to do with my...

 
 
 

Why America Ruined 'Strikers Charged'

Mario Strikers Charged was one of the best games on the Wii in my opinion. In fact, I would go as far to say that 'Strikers Charged' was the best game on the Wii to date. What made the game so amazing was the on-line. For the first time as ...

 
 
 

The 5 Loves & 5 Hates of Gawii_UK

I've posted up quite a few blogs now, without introduction and so here it is; I think there's nothing better than a list of loves and hates to get people interested- especially the hates! Just as a basic overview; I live in the North West o...

 
 
 

Retroforce Go: Making work more bearable

My big introduction to Destructoid was through Retroforce Go- I found the podcast through itunes one day when searching for retro gaming and I have never looked back. One of the reasons I bought an ipod in the first place was to have a mult...

 
 
 

The graphics whore is looking for a punter...

He drives down the dark back alley desperate for his fix. He sees her and pulls over- boy does she look fantastic- dolled up to the nines, but what he's failed to realise is that inside she's rotten to the core. She's a bad one. To be hones...

 
 
 

Disillusionment with the Wii

As I've mentioned in another post, since the SNES days I have only ever owned Nintendo consoles and I feel that this is one of the reasons why I have been more out of touch with true 'hardcore' gaming experiences and the on-line as I've e...

 
 
 

No place to hide for xbox 360 losers

In many ways I feel that I have missed out on a large portion of the gaming market over the past couple of years. Being an exclusive Nintendo owner has meant that I have missed out on epic first person shooters, great sports simulations but...

 
 
 

Resident Evil 5- my thoughts

Resident Evil 5 is one of the reasons why I chose to buy an xbox 360. Resident Evil 4 was one of the best games of all time in my humble opinion and I was wanting more of the same when I pre-ordered my nice and shiny 'steelbook edition' fro...

 
 
 

FIFA 09 Ultimate Team...?

To be completely honest, I am not a huge FIFA buff. Being more of a Nintendoid for around twenty years I haven't played a decent FIFA game since Dennis Bergkamp graced the box art. Then I traded my Wii in for a '360 (long story) and got mys...
