STFU. You're not getting a refund.

Hi, boys and girls. It's been a while since I've last graced Destructoid, and I have to say... lookin' sharp. I'm liking what I see, and I hope to see more. Now, to business: Those of you who are bitching about Xbox LIVE being up and dow...

 
 
 
 
 

BRIBERY! THEIVERY! TREACHERY!

So get this shit, dudes and dames. You know how publishers will send reviewers and journalists tons of swag along with the game that's supposed to be reviewed? If not, I assure you -- they do. They usually wind up being used as giveaway p...

Duke Nukem: Forever @ Best Buy

We all know this is just a mistake. Hell, Duke Nukem Forever being given a release date of December 1st, 2007 is just silly, right? ...right? Seriously, though -- how long before Best Buy takes this down? Best Buy SCREENSHOT FOREVER!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Worst. BioShock review. Ever.

BioShock has sex with your entire face. This is a fact that you can not deny. Every major review source on the internet (including here at D'toid) has given the game perfect to near-perfect scores (GameRankings averages it at 98%). The fa...

 
 
 

Has This Ever Happened to YOU?!

You're sitting in front of your computer, raining hellfire down on those unfortunate sons of bitches who dare to oppose you. Your left hand firmly working the Gamer Compass (WASD) while your right guides your crosshairs so that you may brin...

Call of Duty 4. October 30th. BUY IT!

Spider-Man 3: Why I Still Hate It

I actually wrote this review many moons ago for X360R, BUT... because I just saw my youngest cousin playing through it again, I figured it was time to remind the world just exactly why I hate this giant, steaming turd. ------------------...

 
 
 
 

G4 Fails at E3

There really is no two ways to say it -- G4 flat out fails at covering the new E3. I, because of some travel issues at home, was forced to watch the Microsoft Press Conference from the comfort of my own couch. I had the 1UP stream on the PC...

Konnichiwa!

My name is James. By day I am a freelance copywriter and editor. While the perks of this job are getting to sleep 'til 2pm and working in my underwear, I've learned far more about hemorrhoid cream and proper swimming pool chlorination than I ever care to.

I guess you could say I'm a "former" video game "journalist" (though I wouldn't call myself the J word). I am the former Editor-in-Chief of Binge Gamer and I spent time writing at other blogs. I gave it up because while I love gaming and the gaming industry, I just didn't have the constitution to run my own business.

Not at the age of 23, anyways.

Let's see... apart from that I'm prior service US Army (Military Police), a stand-up comedian, a connoisseur of soft drinks and I once wrestled a cheetah.

I was victorious.
