Videogames… what’s with all the candles?

Whilst romping though the not very good FPS Fear 3 (or F3AR as it is want to call itself) I noticed something that stuck out more than the legions and legions of genetically modified super soldiers and predicable level design. It&rsquo...

 
 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: Silent Hill-Downpour

Eek! So I ruffled a few feathers with my last few blog, hope no one was too irritated. In penance, lets  dig out another forgotten treasure and sing its praises, this time something a little more modern, but still a gem and still ...

 
 
 

How Short is too Short: A rebuttal.

Dtoid’s own beloved review shaman Chris Carter recently pointed out that The Order: 1886 is a short game, and he is perfectly okay with this as long as it’s a solid short game. I respectfully am not okay with this. And lik...

 
 
 
 
 

Gaming is destroying the world

I hate to say it, but its time we sat up and noticed the damage that our hobby is doing to the world. Jack Thompson was wrong, its not that games are corrupting the young, games are corrupting THE WORLD. I began by flexing my statisti...

 
 
 

There is BDSM in videogames. [NSFW!]

Seriously not safe for work, not for content, but your colleagues might look at you weird from now on...  BDSM, or bondage, domination, sadism and masochism is everywhere. It really is, you’d be surprised by how many differ...

 
 
 

Press forward to walk forward.

Its time we took a stand. Its time to stand up and make our voices heard, its time that those same voices build into a chorus that is heard the world over.   We don’t need your shitty tutorial sections anymore.   Reall...

 
 
 

STFU and listen to my awesome ideas Dtoid.

How lovely was that wee update from Niero? There has been some losses within the Destructoid community recently, but the thing i love dearly about this site is that no matter what happens the community rallies and we continue to have ...

 
 
 

Fangs for the Memories. The Blackest of Mirrors.

I don’t scare easily. I never have, whilst I love horror in all its forms it rarely scares me properly. Never the type of scare that keeps you awake, that has you reaching for another drink and another cigarette, and that makes y...

 
 
 

Video game mash up to put in your ears.

I bet you didn't know that I’m an amateur DJ under the name of Y so Serious? Well why would you, we hardly talk after that embarrassing incident with the horseradish. I was going to make a normal blog list with my favourite bits...

 
 
 

My favorite game: Starfox 64.

The question of a favourite game is harder than it first seems. I, like many of my fellow D-toiders have a space in our hearts for the classics, the cult favourites and the unique gems, and we will (and happily do) argue about where th...

 
 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: Super Ghouls'n Ghosts

After a little break I'm returning to my game collection to dig out an old favorite and show why it should be remembered more fondly. Today we're gonna look at Super Ghouls'n Ghosts for the Super Nintendo, the sequel/re-make of the NES' Gho...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Watching that Bloody bar fill. NSFW?

Presented for your reading pleasure, a monologue on the crippling boredom and frustration when installing new software.    God this is so boring.... That little bar is gradually filling, but I swear time is going slower than it normally ...

 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: ZombiU

Pieces of Heart is an ongoing series where I pick out a forgotten classic from my game library and give it a long overdue moment in the sun. For all your Zelda’s and Last of Us’es there so many unsung heroes. Today it’s a little different, ...

 
 
 

BROKE PHI BROKE!!! "we ain't got it"

Did you see all those awesome games we're gonna buy after all the E3 coverage? Got one of them fancy new consoles or an amazing PC up grade? Me neither, because I'm poor! All these new games and machines are all very well and good, but I...

 
 
 

Three cheers for playing with yourself!

So Bethesda have released Wolfenstein to a mostly mixed reception, but I will be cheering for it for two reasons:   1.[font=Times New Roman]      [/font]Its got comedy brit soldier types cor blimey, me ol’ china! 2.[font=Times New Roman]...

 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: The Simpsons Arcade Game

It's that time again to have a look at a forgotten classic, and this one will get very mixed reactions. I'm my view it was the holy grail of arcades, the consumer of 20 pence pieces and the scourge of my attention span. Ladies and gentlemen...

 
 
 

10 Shades of Gray. 10 Things about Gray Time

[font=Times New Roman] [/font]1.Gray is my actual name. and I look like this:  As you can probably gather from the picture, I like to drink and do stupid things. I think we’re all in far too much of a rush to grow up. I love the fact that I...

 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: Dynamite Cop

Time to have another look at a forgotten classic in my game collection, and this one was only available on Sega’s great white hope. The machine had internet before X-Box, duel screen before the DS and cross play before the Vita, it had it a...

 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: Blast Corps

It that time again to sing the praises of a forgotten classic, This time we're looking at a game with nuclear weapons, a bull-dowser and a plot that i imagine EA would describe as "wallet suicide"    Ah the N64 days, the quirky console tha...

 
 
 
 

Pieces of Heart: The Suffering

The Suffering is the next in the series where i jump into my game collection and find a classic that doesn't get the respect and love it deserves. There are so many games that don't get remembered as fondly as other classics. So today we ch...
