Review: Dara O’Briain's Go 8 Bit

Video games and television have rarely been a winning combination in the UK. Arguably the most successful and long-running show was GamesMaster, which lasted for seven series back in the nineties. Since then, there have been many attem...


I drew something using MS Paint

So this is my entry for Destructoid: MS Paint Edition: Round Two.          It took me well over 20 minutes to do.  I don’t know why on earth I picked this game to draw using a mouse. I think I must have a masochist streak or something. An...


The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

So, here we are again with another incarnation of Link saving Hyrule from the clutches of evil. This time round our villain is Yuga, a vain sorcerer attempting to revive Ganon. He’s a bit like Dr Steinman from Bioshock, completely obsesse...


Tomb Raider

This is the first Tomb Raider game that I've played since Tomb Raider II and Tomb Raider III back on the PS1.  That was ages ago, but this reboot still felt very familiar. They've managed to keep the atmosphere while updating the gameplay. ...


Thoughts on Hitman:Absolution

Hitman: Absolution is fun, but flawed. It’s immensely satisfying when you find a way to kill your target “accidently” instead of garrotting them or using a silenced gun. You can eliminate targets by poisoning food, blow someone up by swapp...


Thoughts and Speculations on Pokemon X and Y

The announcement of Pokémon X and Y has been one of the few times I've genuinely been excited about a new Pokémon game. The last time this happened, I was 12 years old and a classmate had the American import of Ruby. I marvelled at its grap...


Alan Wake

I found Alan Wake to be a mixed bag. I loved the gameplay and mystery introduced in the very first episode. I liked exploring Bright Falls and meeting the colourful characters. The only minor issue I had at the time was Alice Wake's lip syn...


Ghost Trick: Phantom Dectective

This is one of the most enjoyable games I've played on the DS this year. I was hooked straight from the start with its cast of colourful characters and crazy yet enthralling, storyline. It's a puzzle game but Shu Takumi has put his own s...


So I finally got round to playing Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2 was a very enjoyable game. It’s very atmospheric in the beginning levels, particularly at the start when Issac is stuck in a straightjacket and must dodge the necromorphs. This was such a strong opening and the game continued ...


Somethinginthesea.com – Here we go AGAIN!

Well somethinginthesea.com has recently updated to Mark Meltzer’s study. Normal enough you might think, except for a pretty weird, evil-loooking lunchbox near the side of his desk. In case you haven’t looked at the site recently, Mark Melt...


If a Street Fighter IV Movie was made...

The Minus World has some ideas on casting in the unlikely event that a Street Fighter IV movie is ever made: You can find the rest of the cast here: http://the-minusworld.com/2009/02/27/street-fighter-iv-the-movie/ Let's hope...


Interesting Game Art I found

I found some game art while browsing the net, and thought you guys might want to see them: This was pretty much the only image that would fit here. I thought it was very creepy, having the Jasmine Jolene poster in the background while Andr...


Feminists hate Bioshock! (SPOILERS)

This is an actual real post on some blog I came across while browsing on the Internet. I actually had to check to make sure I wasn't reading a part of Jim Sterling's Ban this Filth article. http://99lives.org/2007/10/08/misogyny-has-a-ne...


The obligatory intro post - hi guys!

Actually, I should have done this a lot earlier. Oh well. I'm Infinitestrike and I'm from the UK. My gaming history basically started with a Sega Mega Drive, followed by the PS1, PS2, Gamecube, GBA SP, DS, Wii and now 2 months ago, I got a...


Look, it's PG Bioshock!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUf436NS65I Well, not really. It's for some movie called City of Ember. But the style they've chosen to create the city looks a bit like Bioshock, doesn't it? Speaking of Bioshock, I was playing it on Easy ...


The start of the affair: Streets of Rage 2

Streets of Rage 2 (or Bare Knuckle 2, as it was known in Japan) was one of the first games I had ever played on the Sega Mega Drive. The first thing I noticed upon starting the game with my brother was that the characters on the select scr...

I'm Infinitestrike and I'm from the UK. My gaming history basically started with a Sega Mega Drive, followed by the PS1, PS2, Gamecube, GBA SP, DS, Wii and XBox 360.

My favourite boss fights are The End, Psycho Mantis and General RAM. My favourite levels to explore would probably be any of the planets in Mario Galaxy.
