A Kind of Review of That New Tomb Raider

ďA survivor is bornĒ. That is what it says on the back of Tomb Raiderís box; they also present that text quite prominently at the end of the game before the credits roll, and after finishing the game itís important to keep those words in m...

 
 
 

The Public Library and Xbox Live

Iíve been going to the library quite a lot lately. I used to go to study, as Iíve recently moved towns, and into a busier house back with my family and getting any work done from home was difficult. I get terribly distracted at the best o...

 
 
 

An Open Letter to the Gaming Press

There is no doubt Robert Florence opened a can of worms with his Table of Doritos article over at Eurogamer. Most of us know about the article. It was about the relationship between the games press and PR. I wonít go into the contents in...

 
 
 

The True Downfall of Resident Evil

Iíll just say it up front now; when youíre talking about Resident Evil 6 itís hard to not to mention Resident Evil 4. Itís especially hard for me; as to me, RE4 is a game I judge many action shoot-y type games against. I think itís a true...

 
 
 

Thank you, Polygon (shortblog)

I want to thank Polygon. I want to thank them for clearing my eyes. After watching the trailer to their documentary which left me blinking deliriously I have just now opened my eyes to what I should be doing in my blogs, and thatís changi...

 
 
 

DmC, Tomb Raider and Reboots

Itís easy to feel betrayed when a game series you like changes direction, or appears to reboot itself to a new crowed by reassessing its personality and getting a new hairstyle. Itís also very easy to accept this new persona if you werenít...

 
 
 

Sorry Demon's Souls, it's not me, it's you

It took me a long time to finally get around to playing Demonís Souls. I suppose the reason why it took so long is an incredibly shallow reason: itís how it looks. There is something about the type of fantasy set in middle ages Europe tha...

 
 
 
 
 

So... Resident Evil 6?

So the Resident Evil 6 trailer showed up last night on a number of sites and as I turned off the computer and tucked myself in bed I found myself thinking about the series a lot. I thought about the original and how that scene from the Hun...

 
 
 

Games of 2012: Red Steel 2

Now I know many of you are seeing that this is about Red Steel 2; a game that most donít give two pointless thoughts about, but hear me out. This game made me realise some deep thoughts. Thoughts that undermine modern game conventions and...

 
 
 

Games of 2012: Portal 2

I expect some of you are looking at this title and saying ĎLolwut!? Portal 2 came out in 2011! What an idiot!í or perhaps just gently wondering what the deal is, or even not caring at all and just skimming past these very words while your ...

 
 
 

Zelda, Voices and Communicating Narrative

You can browse any forum or comments section relating to gaming and find a multitude of ill thought out or carefully considered debates over a whole host of subjects; or sometimes just trolling and in-jokes. With the recent wave of info re...

 
 
 

Hello, community.

Hi there. After lurking for over a year I've decided to become a little more active within Destructoid. I felt I had to come and kind of defend Other M, I enjoyed the game, I'm a fan of the series. But another reason is I never felt I ne...

 
 

About Leigh Davidsonone of us since 4:59 PM on 09.14.2010

Hello,

I'm a gamer from the 90s who was raised on games with cute characters in them, both the genuine, heart-warming kind and the cynically designed ones.
But despite me mostly being a Nintendo fanboy it was probably the holy trinity Final fantasy VII, Tomb Raider and Resident Evil that truly got me into gaming.

Now I play anything as I'm open to anything.

Favourite game of all time? probably a toss up between Mass Effect 2, Persona 4, Metroid Prime, Killer7 or Resident Evil 4.

I write bits for the gaming site BitParade
