For a Few Consoles More: RAW Is Console War

Some months ago, I put to paper one of the silliest, most moronic things I have ever written. A Fistful of Consoles: The End of the Console War was a short piece of writing in which I personally ended the seventh console war by comparing ...

 
 
 

Breathing New Life into (Un)Death

“Zombie games are overdone”. This statement has become something of a motto in some circles, particularly circles of people who follow the games industry and games media extensively, and those who enjoy analysing and observing the ever-s...

A Blank Poem

Hey there Destructoid, it's been a while since I've written anything because I've been sick (and busy with "important" work), but I thought I'd try something different today. Here is different: Let me tell you the tale of a man most ordi...

 
 
 

BioShock Infinite Reminds Me Why I Love Videogames

[Warning: This article contains some minor spoilers for BioShock Infinite) I’ve always been insecure about divulging my age on the internet, particularly within pieces of writing that I publish on the Internet. When I’m discussing the in...

 
 
 
 
 

John Riccitiello and the Corporate Allegory

As bleak as the morning was, John Riccitiello (or Johnny C as his cool new friends had begun to address him affectionately) was in high spirits. Pulling on his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pyjamas, he bounded down the stairs, gleeful at t...

 
 
 
 

How Halo 4's Story Baffled This Halo Journeyman

I just beat Halo 4. I’m a little late to the party as usual, and before jumping into the campaign I decided to rummage around in the dark crevices of my brain and internally swot up on whatever Halo knowledge was lurking in the shadows. C...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Multiplayer Within Context

Over the past three years or so, various game developers (and often more notably their publishers) have come under fire from gamers and industry folk for the so called “shoehorning” of multiplayer elements into what are often primarily si...

 
 
 
 

The Most Overlooked Game of 2012

While it might seem a little late to still be doing “____ of 2012” articles, there are some things that cannot be left un-said. Amidst each year’s appalling disasters and critic’s darlings, there sits a graveyard of games neither brillian...

 
 
 
 
 

SuperCrow's Top 5 Games of 2012

As a new year unceremoniously kicks us in our collective groins and barks at us to get back to work/school/being poor, we can look back on 2012 and the gaming stories it brought with it. There were public relations nightmares, development...

 
 
 

Preview/Review: Double Fine's Amnesia Fortnight!

Dishonored is the Perfect Assassin's Creed Game

The original Assassin’s Creed, despite its repetitive “information gathering” missions and rather silly plot, was pretty great. It was essentially a series of assassination missions, wherein the player could plan their attack route and st...

Following announcements regarding Michael Fassbender’s apparent involvement in the Assassin’s Creed movie slated for the end of 2013, as well as announcements regarding Scott Derrickson’s (he wrote Sinister apparently) involvement in the m...

 
 
 

A Fistful of Consoles: The End of the Console War

Remember the great console war of the seventh generation? Cries of “Filthy casual!” and “Microsoft fanboy!” thrown about online forums. The piercing whistle of a Wii-mote as it passed your ears, missing its target by mere centimetres. I’m...

 
 
 

The Smaller Things in Life

I’m getting pretty sick of saving the world/galaxy/universe. It’s always important to feel like what you’re accomplishing in a game matters to somebody or something. Your actions need to have value, be it a sense of accomplishment for re...

 
 
 

The "Perfect Character"

When examining the vast array of characters in games today, one thing is painfully obvious: there are certain groups of people who are grossly under-represented/badly represented. No doubt you’ve heard this before. If it’s not the laughabl...

 
 

About SuperCrowone of us since 6:32 PM on 03.02.2012

I am Liam, an English and Media student. I run a blog called The Vocal Protagonist with a friend of mine: https://thevocalprotagonist.tumblr.com/

My favourite games are RPG's, Puzzle Platformers and anything with an engrossing, engaging world or narrative. No brand loyalty here, but my favourite system is probably the good ol' Playstation 2.

Currently playing: The Basement Collection, Dishonored
