P2 Press Start: Volume III - Hold the Phone

Tonight's post is going to be relatively short as I have to post by midnight (or I turn back into a pumpkin). The topic of tonight's post may not touch directly upon playing co-op/competitively, but I think it counts; hopefully I can convi...

 
 
 
 

P2 Press Start: Volume I - Gaming with the Fiancee

So I have this grand idea that I'm going to post three separate blogs about May's 'Monthly Musings', the chances of that actually happening though? MINIMAL AT BEST. However, on the off chance that I do actually follow through on this, I...

 
 
 

The Return of 'Blog-a-Day in May' Get Ready.

Well, well, well...I can't believe it's been a year already. First off, I'd like to thank anyone who read/voted for last year's competition. It was fun to compete, and more fun to crush my opponents. So thanks for that. Also, sorry for ...

 
 
 

WELCOME BACK!

Ma$e and Halo, goes together like PB and...something that's not jelly Well, well, well. What's the haps, Dtoid? Sweet fancy Moses, it has been a while, hasn't it? Glad to see the place hasn't gone to crap in the four months my lazy but...

 
 
 

Voting is Open!

For those of you who have been following this piece of crap for the last month, I've got some exciting (it's not really exciting) news for you! Voting for the 'Blog-a-Day in May' is open! For all of my loyal readers (I do have loyal reade...

 
 
 

And So It Ends

Here we are...the last day of our competition. I still can't believe I managed to go the full month churning out (relatively) quality blogs. Guh. It's been a pain in the ass. But I'd be straight up lying if I said I didn't appreciate al...

 
 
 

I Think I'm Going to Get a Wii.

And don't judge me, this ain't my first time to the rodeo so to speak. I did have a Wii for a while. But I let my ex-girlfriend keep it and it's been long enough that I can't ask for it back without it being considered a TOTAL DICK MOVE. ...

 
 
 

Just got done with Kung Fu

It's 9pm...time for some California Chicken Grill and some Yu-Yu Hakusho with my bff Kelly. Sounds like a decent night. I saw a tweet today; 'I've said it before; Wednesday. Where you're too far out to see weekend in any direction.' AGR...

 
 
 

Only 4 Days Left! (In Our Competition)

Jesus, this competition is KILLING ME. It's pretty tough to make 25 blog entries that don't completely suck ass. But at least we're almost finished. We've all been pretty constant, and only one person has missed any days...which is bette...

 
 
 

So I Started Taking Kung Fu

I've been interested in martial arts for a long, long time. I took some Tae Kwon Do when I was a kid, and freshman year I joined Aikido Club at Florida State for a semester before my class schedule interfered with my martial arts interests...

 
 
 

Last Sick Day, I Swear!

You know what immune system? Starting tomorrow I am playing in filth and garbage all day long in order to toughen you up. You have dishonored me for the last time. I SHALL HAVE MY REVENGE!!! I just realized that after today, there are...

 
 
 

Being Sick Sucks

Guhhhhh. Played more RDR today. It's fun...and multiplayer actually worked some today...which was nice. Pro Tip: If we're playing free-roam...don't shoot me. It does nothing for you except give you 10xp. Really? Are you that much o...

 
 
 

Day 2 in Red Dead Redemption

Being disgustingly sick has some advantages I suppose; when I wasn't passed out on my couch or mainlining juice, vitamins, medicine, or fruit; I actually managed to play some more RDR. Which was kind of nice, but it's not all sunshine and ...

 
 
 

So, I'm an hour into Red Dead Redemption...

...my god, there are so many animals! I've shot crows, rabbits, skunks, armadillos, a horse, and more coyotes than I can count. I will say shooting and skinning a horse made me feel a. terrible, and b. disgusted...that was kind of gross. ...

 
 
 

Red Dead Redemption Drops Tomorrow!

Growing up, my father and I watched a LOT of Westerns. Now, my father was a John Wayne man...he loved him some Duke. He enjoyed Clint too, but he definitely had a preference for Wayne movies. Myself...well...to this day I still think Eas...

 
 
 

Medal of Honor: Frontline

With the reboot of the Medal of Honor series coming out later this year, I find myself thinking more and more about what I think is the hands-down best game in the series; Medal of Honor: Frontline. 3 minutes in...that's where the magic s...

 
 
 

PURE - The game that made me a liar.

I hate racers. Mainly because I'm terrible at them. When I first purchased my 360 it came bundled with two games; Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (Awesome), and Forza 2 (boo!). I played Forza for all of 20 minutes before I got tired of comple...

 
 
 

NHL '09: The one sports game I don't have AIDS at.

Not gonna lie to you; today's post is going to be half-assed. Putting forth all this effort everyday is wearing me down and I'm scrambling to get them done. So, today's should be short. Hey! The only sports game that I'm not terrible at...

 
 
 
 

Why I Love Link's Awakening (GBC)

You know...I still have my original Game Boy. Some of you may remember it. Some of you may even have used it for it's original purpose; bludgeoning old people to death for their social security checks. Seriously, it was the size of a bri...

 
 
 

Why I (and everyone else) Loves ICO

Roger Ebert recently wrote an article about how video games were not art. Now, I know how everyone on Destructoid feels about that statement; gamers are a pretty vociferous community when it comes to slights against our hobby (obsession, w...

 
 
 

Why I Love Beyond Good and Evil (PS2)

You know...I realize that a lot of people don't play video games. Or even understand them. Most of the people in our little competition have at least played them, even if they don't really understand why I'm devoting 30 days to talk about...

 
 
 

Why I Love Resident Evil 4 (GC)

If I had to pick one word to describe RE4 it would be this: *GUITAR SOLO!* It was late January, 2005 and I had just purchased a GameCube for my (then) girlfriend's b-day (because I am AWESOME). Now she enjoyed her The Legend of Zelda: ...

 
 
 

Why I Love Fallout 3

Fuck and Yes. Fallout 3...where do I start. The first time I really remember paying any serious attention to Fallout 3 (it's important to note that I haven't played the first two, nor any of the spin-off titles...sorry!) was when my fr...

 
 
 

Blog-A-Day (In May) Competition

Well, well, well. I never thought I'd be a part of this, mainly because I'm such a procrastinator that I figured that there was no point. But here it is, May 3rd, and I'm going to do my best to not completely crap the bed during the 2nd A...

 
 
 

E for Effort: Prince of Persia

Ah, to be the me from early 2008 again! When I first saw this: I can't tell you how excited I was for this game. I mean, holy smokes, that damn video blew my mind! Still does! I remember the hours I spent with Sands of Time; I reme...
