I got a role on "Flare"! Anyone else?

WOW! A little while ago, our own unbelievably hot Colette posted an article about the upcoming independent game Flare, stating that the developer was also looking for voice actors, artists, writers, and so forth. Well, I'm not trained in ...

 
 
 

When Gaming Loses Its "Fun" Factor

(Note: This is actually a smaller version of my article on Bityard, a web site that I write for. But it definitely applies here. I don't know if it qualifies for an "I suck at gaming" entry, and frankly I'm not trying to get that; but it...

 
 
 

The original Duke Nuke 'Em at GOG!

I hate sounding like some kind of a GOG sales rep, but in fairness I did submit this to the D-toid guys this morning. The front page has been pretty busy with other stuff. So, I'm not surprised that they didn't get it posted. I just got ...

 
 
 

15% off racing titles at GOG

Seeing as how the Dtoid staff don't consider this to be worthy enough to let everyone else know, I'll just do it here. I got an e-mail today that GOG, our favorite inexpensive, DRM-free game company, is offering 15% off of five racing titl...

 
 
 
 

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...

 
 
 
 
 

Let Best Buy install your Wii game!

This isn't the first time I've seen this, but while at a local Best Buy to purchase Boom Blox for the Wii I saw this and had to chuckle. Of course, there's nothing to install with the Wii, unless Best Buy considers the save game file t...

 
 

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.

GAME ON!
