GDC Rules!

I just got back to my friend's place in Oakland after crawling SF following this year's Game Developer's Choice Awards. I think I lost my voice cheering for Phil Fish (monocles FTW) and Jon Mak. So awesome. The IGF was freakin' incredible t...

 
 
 

Epic +3 Poster of Hilarity. Also, FREEDOM!!

Evidently, someone at the 32nd Street GameStop in Manhattan thinks he's a comedian: ALSO! Tomorrow (Friday) marks my final day of employment at Atari, Inc. Oh, you bet your ass it was my idea this time. I've come to the realization that...

 
 
 
 

Who's going to GDC this year?

WARNING: NOT A REAL NEWS POST Hey dudes. Just wondering if anyone else from Destructoid is going to hit up GDC this year. I'll be rocking the Independent Games Summit on Monday and Tuesday, but I might just wing it the rest of the week. ...

 
 
 

Decent Cel-Shading...?

So I spent all day collecting screens and footage for Dragonball Z: Burst Limit. Although I was never a dedicated fan of the show, I've had a soft spot for it since grade school, and when we began working on a DBZ game for 360/PS3, I wasn't...

 
 
 

This One's For BahamutZero

So BZ has not had a good month, it seems, and I just grabbed a copy of Mark Overmars's supremely ghetto Game Maker 7, so I figured why not put the thing to some use? 2D scrolling shooter - crude as hell - but hopefully it's got a few laugh...

 
 
 

Epic Gamerscore Coincidence!

So I'm playing Rez HD last night. I clear Area 3, and I'm just about to hit up Area 4 when a tiny voice in the back of my mind tells me to wait a second. Usually in this situation I'd just increase my dosage and rock back and forth in a cor...

 
 
 

God Dammit, Deadline Games!

There are few things more frustrating than coming up with a really cool idea, waiting for the right time to execute it, and then finding out that someone else has a 6-month head start. CURSE YOU, DEADLINE GAMES! (and thanks to JDUB X for t...

 
 
 

Unity 3D is Awesome

I mostly wanted to make sure I could actually embed Unity3D web players in my cblog without breaking Destructoid, but it's still pretty sweet, right? If you don't have the plugin, it should give you an install prompt. This is a demo from t...

 
 
 

For the PS3 Owners... (Follow-Up)

So yesterday I asked you guys if you'd ever noticed anything wrong with the video outputs on your PSTriples, and it seems I'm the only one whose machine is acting up like this. Well, I figured I'd have to find some way of showing it to Sony...

 
 
 

For the PS3 Owners...

To any of you who own a PS3: Have you experienced anything that looks like a Z-buffer issue in your games? I've got a first-gen 60GB model, and I get this irritating bug in all of my games where individual pieces of geometry will either di...

 
 
 

Game Design Paralysis

I feel like shit today. Forgive the ranting; I'll do everything I can to keep this relevant. You guys all saw this, right? I'm sure you did. It's not unreasonable to expect that this little bit of sensationalism, coupled with a number of...

 
 
 

User (Un)Friendly: Devkit Adventures!

As some of you (17, according to the comments) are probably aware, back in November I was "restructured" out of my job as a video editor for Atari, Inc. It sucked, but only for a week or so, because soon after I was offered a new job as a v...

 
 
 

Last Passage Post Ever, I Swear

Hey guys. Well, it seems the big deal over Passage has reached its peak. So please allow me one final indulgence before I move on to obsess over something else. My fiancee loved Passage. She doesn't play much of anything beyond Wii Sports...

 
 
 

Please Play This Game. I'm Serious.

I'm sure at least some of you guys have heard about the Gamma 256 competition created by Kokoromi, the ever-so-slightly-hipsterish progenitors of the totally righteous Cave Story/Echochrome mashup Fez. If you haven't, it was a competition t...

 
 
 

Atari Boned, Yours Truly Gets The Axe

Well, it's a lovely, cloudless autumn day here in New York City. And a good thing too, because after several months of behind-the-scenes hemming and hawing, the restructuring officers at Atari, Inc. have seen fit to show me the door. O...

 
 
 

Industry Hijinks, Or "Abandon Ship!"

I never liked James Cameron's Titanic; I have a pretty low threshold for melodrama, and the whole experience felt a little overworked to me (charcoal drawings of Kate Winslet notwithstanding). After this year, though, I have a new appreciat...

 
 
 

Electroplankton Creator Unleashes Win

Toshio Iwai, creator of the cult DS classic Electroplankton - which isn't so much a game as it is a playable music... toy... thing - has spent the last few years in collaboration with Yamaha to produce an equally hard-to-categorize sequence...

 
 
 

Games, Money & Why You Don't Have To Care

I posted this as a comment on Neonie's clog, but there was - shall we say - a confrontation in progress. Since I am an obsessive twat, I have reproduced my opinions here in a vacuum devoid of flammable material, in the hope that those with ...

 
 
 

Sweet Baby Jesus: Direct Feed MGS4

Normally, I wouldn't bother posting this when there's already shakey-cam footage on the main page, but this is just too much awesome to be experienced with washed-out colors and ambient noise. This kind of depravity deserves better. Appa...

 
 
 

Who Is John Galt? (And Pelagic Death)

When I first read about BioShock, I picked up on the Atlas Shrugged references almost immediately, Ayn Rand geek that I am. Over time, I became worried that the game's ties to Objectivism were mere lip service and wouldn't factor at all int...

 
 
 

Dtoid Member Links To Own Blog, Spamming Ensues

Sup, kids. I just started writing for game discussion/critique blog The Game Slant, which is part of a larger editorial site called The Daily Slant. Our number of writers is slowly increasing, and in the next few weeks we should be up to at...

 
 
 

Silicon Knights Blows A Gasket, Sues Epic Games

Wow. I mean, just WOW. By now, many people know about the tragic history of Silicon Knights and their oft-delayed Too Human. Silicon Knights Main Dude Denis Dyack (SKMDDD?) has spent no small amount of time harassing any press or industry ...

 
 
 

Gamers For Gaming - ESRB icons

HEY KIDS! Are you pissed off that no one seems to know why we have ESRB ratings? Not even the ESRB? Do you seethe with rage when onlookers gaze in bewilderment at retail boxes, blissfully unaware that they are purchasing adult games for ...

 
 
 

Aristotle obsolete, sez Crysis writer

So I went to the IGDA game writing panel last night. The discussion was pretty straightforward, nothing particularly new coming up - at least nothing that hasn't already been said several times over. Mostly reiterated platitudes like "stori...

 
 
 

Questions 4 Teh IGDA?

Sup, kiddies. As a member of the New York chapter of the IGDA, I'm going to be attending a game writing panel at the New School in Manhattan at 6:30 tonight. Among the attendees are Daniel Greenberg (Lord of the Rings Online), John Boomer...

 
 
 

I ARE LIVE (and the case for specificity).

LIVE ARE ME. Sup, kiddies. I'm Lord Regulus (of Rev. Anthony's "LOL, Discussion Piece" fame), and you're watching Lord Regulus. With your host, Lord Regulus. On the Lord Regulus Network. All Lord Regulus, all the time. PRO TIP: Regulus wa...

PRO TIP: Regulus was the ice boss in
Bomberman 64, a great game that was
nonetheless forgotten so quickly that I
currently own half of all the existing
cartridges. The other one belongs to a
seal trapper in Finland, and if the two
are ever brought together, it will bring
about the End of Days.
