A real 8-Bit Christmas Greeting

I really am fed up with the attitude by Destructoid's writers that the 8-bit generation of games started with and is restricted to the NES and similar consoles. The 8-bit generation started long before that. So, here is a real 8-bit Chris...


Wii game deals at Amazon today

I guess that I should not be surprised that DToid and other sites hype when Amazon has an XB360 or PS3 "Gold Box" day. (Hey, I'm not complaining. That's when I got the latest Ratchet and Clank for 1/2 price, which made me an R&C addict.) ...


Grow up, fanboys!

Adam Sessler says it all. Sadly, this kind of rampant fanboyism is in full bloom on Dtoid. Whether it's the narrow-minded hatred of the Wii or the mindless masturbatory ramblings of how awesome {enter console here} is, the stupidity and...


Just bought a third Wii -- WTF?

Maybe it's the luck o' me (mostly) Irish blood, but I went down to Best Buy to get Super Smash Brothers Brawl this morning, not realizing that they actually opened an hour later. It was cold (about 40F/4C), but it was sunny, it was a Sunda...


Not my Turning Point gaming rig

Unless this is really a random winner, I don't see much chance of winning because my system is already beefy. - Athlon X2 5200+ - 2 GB RAM - GeForce 8800GTS w/ 640 MB RAM - Freaking huge Rosewill RCX-Z3 CPU cooler - Sound Blaster X-Fi audi...


About John Bone of us since 1:15 AM on 11.26.2006

As one of the oldest members of Dtoid, (I'm already over the big 4-0) I've been gaming since the Atari 2600 was a brand new item, and thousands of my teenage hours were dedicated to gaming on the Commodore 64 and messing around with the new 300-baud modems. (That's .00003 of a megabit per second, for those of you who only know broadband.)

I'm proud to say that I'm a member of the first-generation of gamers, and I still use my PC and each of the three current-gen consoles regularly -- and not for "casual" games. Bring on the hard-core FPS and 3PS! I want to shoot something!

So, I give a big PHUCK YOU!!! to anyone who thinks that video games are for kids! As far as I'm concerned, they haven't been for kids for over 20 years.
