Why F2P Rarely Work

This game has dicks that cost more than $40. Loadout looked like a fun game. I had been watching it for a while, but never really got into the beta. With the official release on steam, I installed right away. And boy was I disappointed w...

 
 
 

On advertising (Destructoid)

I'm the kinda guy who always enables Adblock anywhere I go. However, upon reading one of the main blog posts on the front page about how Destructoid's audience primarily uses Adblock, I disabled Adblock on Destructoid. After all, I feel lik...

 
 
 

Endings: Sometimes Least is Best

I'll go ahead and let you know there will be spoilers for “I Am Alive” and for the movie “Looper”. I picked up I Am Alive during the halloween sales on Steam, because it looked like a game that genuinely intrigued my interests. I was never...

 
 
 

Re: Terraria coming to XBLA/PSN, PC users PISSED

I don't mind most of what Jim Sterling writes. Although they tend to be slanted in the direction Jim wants to take things instead of factual knowledge, I'm okay with it for the most part. But this post by him on terraria shows him essential...

 
 
 
 

Dear Star Wars Fans: Deal with it

I'm sorry to mention this once again, but it brings up such a good point in many of things. ME3, people were entitled to a good ending because they showed consumer loyalty and the games throughout were relatively good. They had paid for wha...

 
 
 

Kickstarter: Why it could be a bad thing

Warning: This blog is full speculation. I am in no way saying Kickstarter does this or anything of the sort. Let's say, a Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 kickstarter project occurs. Someone wants to revive an amazing, yet dead, franchise. The su...

 
 
 

Disappointments: Not a SMART move

I love TF2 with a passion, in fact, I've racked up over 430ish hours on it and occasionally turn it back on. So when people start hyping a game said to have team-based objectives, I get kind of excited. No other game to that point had reach...

 
 
 
 

The Problem With Deus Ex Human Revolution

I recently got a 360 for the first time ever, and my friend's letting me borrow Deus Ex. I played it for a bit before on PC, but grew sick of how poorly my PC handled it, so I stopped. But now, I can play it a lot better, although with a wo...

 
 
 

Browser Games: Good ol' RS (Audio Blog)

I'm switching it up a bit and makng a full blog out of just audio, of me talkng. My laptop's keyboard is a bit messed up, and i figure this to be much easier anyway. I realize it's probably gonna disqualify me from being on the front page, ...

 
 
 

The World of DLC

Before I get started, I also made this into an audio blog here. They both basically say the same thing, although one is read by a 17-year old's weird voice. What is DLC? According to wikipedia, DLC is content made downloadable to work as a...

 
 
 

Piracy: What Jim Sterling missed.

I've agreed with what Jim Sterling has been saying in his latest jimquisitions, albeit I cannot stand his personality. Yes people, I get it, his conceitedness is a running joke, but it gets tiresome. So I overlooked it and found some good v...

 
 
 

Xenoblade Chronicles Review (Wii) [Spoiler free!]

I've been putting off giving this a chance. Why? I've been having a hard time finding RPGs I can get into since FFX and TWEWY. Risen, The Last Remnant are the two main ones that got close, but never really took the cake. So what gave me the...

 
 
 
 

Cheap Games that are Worth your time (PC)

I'm pretty cheap when it comes to buying games, except if I'm buying a gaming computer. My steam account is worth about $700, while I've only ever spent $200 on it. I literally did the math, and saved about $500. A lot of it was from HIBs, ...

 
 
 

Rage Graphical Comparison (360 vs. Ps3 vs. PC)

Notice: The PC comparison was taken in full power (1900x1080, x8 MSAA, All textures set to Ultra) Here, we're taking a look at the graphics of Rage compared with the three main platforms for playing it. As you can see, all platforms have h...

 
 
 

VVVVVV Custom Map: The Treasure

Hey there Dtoid. I've never really contributed much to the community, except for blogs and the occasional comment. But now, after a long time of waiting, I've made a VVVVVV map for you all to try out. I'm hoping a lot of people are willing ...

 
 
 
 

Handhelds: Mobile Poison

I was spoiled as a kid. I got every new console/handheld and a bunch of games because my brother did too and it kept our minds off of serious things. Growing up, my parents got divorced. I was young enough not to realize what was actually g...

 
 
 

Should Xenoblade and Last Story come to NA?

I love RPGs. A few of my top favorite games of all time are RPGs (#1 being FFX, #2-#10 being TWEWY [because I'm not too sure which number I'd assign it]). I can barely finish any unless they really pull me in though. I've heard a lot more a...

 
 
 

F2P Steam Games Review

Steam has finally introduced free-to-play games to steam. There were some free mods before, but these are actual games made by other companies. They all strive off of a Pay-For-More model, where you just pay for extra stuff. Sometimes that ...

 
 
 

Duke Nukem Forever review (PC)

Duke Nukem Forever seemed like it's been in development for forever (LOL). But seriously, I'm getting kind of bothered by the reviews. People cannot grade everything the same way, and this really shows it off. For example, movies like PoTC4...

 
 
 

Where Nintendo Went Wrong with WiiU

I'm going to be using the phrase YTTH, which will mean “You're Trying too Hard” with this blog, because I'll be using this phrase a lot and it pretty much says what nintendo is doing. In a way, I hated seeing the wii succeed. I had one, a...

Portal 2 is Overrated (Slight spoilers)

Before I start being negative, let's clear something up. I loved portal 2. In fact, it'll probably end up in my top 10 videogames ever if I ever clearly establish my favorite games of all time. But seeing all these “10s”, “100s”, and other ...

 
 
 

Is Call of Duty good for gaming?

As a bit of a prelude, I have never played much of the CoD's before WaW/Mw/Mw2/BO. Also, I said DE will be my next blog, and I apologize. I've run into some issues that I will try to work out later. Also, I no longer have CoD on my PC for n...

 
 
 

Video games aren't movies: Response to Jimquisition

I like to respond to Jimquisitions. Some of his have very good messages in them, such as the one about how Jim wasn't playing the game right. Then the one about how super-hero games don't make you really feel super. But I'm sorry Jim, but...

 
 
 

Games you might have missed #1

So lately, I've setup ePSXe on my PC. I've been inspired by one of my friends to actually finish games, rather than just play them. And looking back, most of the game I finished were short (usually shooters). Occasionally I beat an RPG or s...
