Top 5 Most Innovative Zombie Games

[Sorry for the lack of images - with the new redesign I've become a C-blog noob once again! I have "upload photos" but clicking it doesn't work. Is it disabled right now or can anyone help me out? Thanks!] Hey Destructoid! It's been a litt...


Backlog Review: Banjo-Tooie (XBLA)

As the dedicated, die-hard Banjo fan I often claim to be, it pains to me admit that I never finished Banjo-Tooie when I was young, and my prior experience with this spectacular sequel is brief. I played the original religiously back in the ...


Gaming Sickness

This is just a brief blog post about something I�ve been thinking about lately. Anyone who saw my previous post knows that I got myself a new and exciting job as a gaming News Writer (and while I�m on that, thanks for all the kind words!) ...


Top 10 Gaming Web Series

I love YouTube! Ironically, not for the reasons most people love it; RayWIlliamJohnson, Smosh and Fred can all go to hell. I�m also not talking about videos of cats or people falling over, although those are important to watch once in a whi...


The Mixed Blessings of Licensed Games

What do I mean by a �licensed� game? All video games are licensed by their manufacturers. But usually when we say �licensed game�, we�re talking about video games adapted from existing franchises in other mediums � movies, comics, cartoons,...


I Boiled A Broken Xbox 360 Game

Yup, boiled. I gave that disc a nice hot soak in the frying pan in my kitchen. It was broken, you see. We all need a hot relaxing bath to restore and refresh our tired bodies sometimes � even video games. Well, that�s not entirely why I did...


I Dub Thee, O Video Games

I'm Reece from England. I'm a newly-recruited News Writer for gaming site Explosion.com, and its all thanks to this here website and blog! I love it here, I love this community and I love to write. I'm always willing to read your blogs here too, so maybe we can be friends!

Recent feature: Happy Birthday, Shigeru Miyamoto! Here Are His Best Moments and Quotes

I've been into gaming since I was about 4 years old, playing the Game Boy, PlayStation 1 and Sega Mega Drive (Genesis to you Americans! Damn you, stealing the better names). Having these systems around during my youth lead to the greatest and most-anticipated Christmas ever - the year I got my N64!

Ever since then I've been playing any and every game I can get my filthy mitts on, no matter what system or genre. I currently have a Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 and a 3DS. Come on Vita, get more games so I can buy you too!

My favourite games are Resident Evil 2, Zelda: The Wind Waker, Streets of Rage 2, Left 4 Dead, Final Fantasy VII and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter at the handle @ReeceH92. If you do follow me, send me a PM on here so I know you're from Destructoid and I'll follow you back too if you like! I will be more active on there as I get more followers and won't just spam news stories, and I'd be happy to chat any of you. I'd appreciate it as I'm new there and the majority of my followers currently consist of sexbots. If they were real ladies at least I could pass myself off as some kind of Twitter pimp.
