My thoughts on Valentineís Day

Valentineís Day is the stupidest ďHallmark holidayĒ anyone could have come up with. Oh, letís take a day out of the year to celebrate love! What kind of sappy bullshit is that? Actually, forget the sappy qualities of the day. This day jus...

 
 
 

And the GoW: CoO coupon winrar is...

LostCrichton! Congratulations! I happened to be thinking of Mariano Rivera, so the number in my head was 42, which he (she? I donít want to be presumptuous...) guessed exactly. Please send me a PM or email (my address is in my profile si...

 
 
 
 
 

Insomniac interview: Resistance 2

On Thursday, IGN put up this four-and-a-half-minute-long video interview with Ted Price, the President and CEO of Insomniac Games. It doesnít reveal a whole lot more than we already know about Resistance 2, but the few of you out there wh...

 
 
 

Well, thatís just excessive...

Inspired by dvddesignís recent blog entry on a guy with a 2400-sq.-ft. arcade in his house, I decided to post something similar that I saw over on CNETís Crave blog, which often features all manner of ostentatiously extravagant gadgets, gea...

 
 
 

Well, thatís quite a milestone...

Wow. That sure is a lot of comments, isnít it? Because Iím a science guy, and I like to do some calculations to show cool stuff, Iím gonna go for it. I started reading Destructoid sometime in August of 2006, so if we start from the middl...

 
 
 

The 80 GB PS3 is no more...

The demise of the 80 GB PlayStation 3 has been reported on before, most notably by c-bloggers/matlockers liqideos and Y0j1mb0. But Iím here to give you proof besides ďscansĒ of ďemailsĒ and so-called ďinsider informationĒ. Nothing officia...

 
 
 
 
 

[update] New details emerge on GTA IV

Fellow c-blogger Kryptinite beat me to part of what I was going to post, so Iíll just summarize his post by saying that Rockstar sent out an email this morning confirming that the official release date for Grand Theft Auto IV has been set f...

 
 
 

[repost] CONTEST: Win a PSP game coupon!

Well, since I received a grand total of zero entries for the contest I posted just under three weeks ago, Iím giving everybody a second chance. Yes, I know the deadline was a while ago, but I was busy over the holidays, and itís probably be...

 
 
 
 

FNF on PS3 = AWOL; Calling all PS3 owners...

Man, thatís a lot of acronyms. Last night, as you all know, was the 20th Friday Night Fights. Snaileb did a good job letting everyone know what the deal was in Grimís absence. However ó and this is not anyoneís fault in particular ó I feel...

 
 
 

CONTEST: Win a PSP game coupon!

As many of you know, Iím the happy owner of a PS3, and I have many games for it. But Iíve never been into handheld gaming; when I was young, my parents would only let my brother and me have one console at a time (per generation, that is), a...

I AM A GOLDEN GOD (of [email protected])

This is another late post, but I was busy this weekend with schoolwork and the Blip Festival (more on that to come in a future blog entry). Iíll start out by saying itís kind of a ďtoot my own hornĒ post...but you probably already figured t...

 
 
 
 

Dale North [almost] made Sony cry

Someone may already have posted this, but I didnít see it, so Iím gonna go ahead anyway. This past Friday, our very own Dale North put up a post wishing the PlayStation 3 a happy first birthday. Well, it seems that the internets have taken ...

 
 
 

Harmonix hates the PS3, part deux

As if this story wasnít enough of an insult to PS3 owners who were eager to purchase Rock Band, Harmonix has given us the shaft yet again. According to IGN, the PS3 Rock Band bundle lacks the four-port powered USB hub that is present in the...

 
 
 
 
 

Guitar Hero III song packs are still a gyp

So I got back from class around 6:15 tonight, and since I was eager to see what Sony had added to the PS Store, I stopped folding and booted up the store. This Thursdayís update is pretty significant: theyíve added the long-awaited demo of ...
