Team Fortress 2sdays: Scream Fortress 2sdays

Halloween is tomorrow! To celebrate, the map rotation tonight will be only Halloween maps! 2spooky4u. Sorry there's not more here. I'm busy getting the server together, and I didn't expect to have to write this, but I guess Spencer is dro...

 
 
 

Team Fortress 2sdays: Team Fortress 2spooky

Greetings Dtoiders! Spencer is away working or something (does he work?), so I'm writing the TF2sday post on the cblogs. If you played with us last week, you may remember us playing the Halloween maps, and having them crash when a boss w...

 
 
 
 

Conventions: Breaking Out

PAX Prime 2011 was my first big PAX. The reason I say big PAX is because I went to one of the first years of PAX back when it was in the Belleview Convention Center, before they moved over to Seattle. Overall, I had fun. But I had one pro...

The Dtoid TF2 Server and You

Greetings everyone! As most of you probably already know, I'm one of the admins on the Destructoid TF2 server. What you may not know, unless you were online to hear me announce it last TF2sday, is ownership of the server itself has been t...

TF2sday Fanart?

Well, I guess you can call it fanart. For those of you who don't know, recently I've been made an admin of the Dtoid TF2 server. Also, because of my streaming of the events on my own Twitch.tv channel, I will soon be streaming TF2sdays on o...

 
 
 
 

Ten Things I Hate (Or Don't) About Me!

Time to jump on the bandwagon! Figured I might as well do this, so here we go! 10. The first time I played Half-Life, I hated it. For those of you who know me even a little, you already know that Valve is my favorite game developer ever....

 
 
 

How Microtransactions Can Be Done Right

Microtransactions have been around for years. But with more and more games adopting the free to play business model, they're as common as ever. From Facebook to Steam, they're everywhere. But instead of complaining about how bad some of t...

 
 
 
 

HD Collections - Yay or Nay?

HD collections. Re-releases of last generation games on current generation consoles. Some think HD collections are great, while others think of them as a quick cash grab from publishers. But with current trends itís looking like theyíre h...

 
 
 

Happy Billentine's Day!

Those of you who listen to Podtoid may remember a contest held a few months ago to write an Alien themed haiku to win Aliens Infestation. I managed to be one of the lucky winners with my keen haiku writing skills. Well when I was in San Fra...

Christmas Spirit... In Card Form

This year I took it upon myself to make my own Christmas cards and send them out to friends and family. It took me a week or so to think up of what I wanted on the cards, how big to make them, etc. I ended up making a single sided 8.5" wide...

 
 
 
 

Xbox Companion App for Windows Phone 7

Why hello there! I know how the cblog community as a whole frowns upon external linking of stuff. However, I wouldn't externally link this if the YouTube video tag still worked in the cblogs! That being said, I took the opportunity as a Wi...

 
 
 

Sandwichtoid: I heard Gobun likes sandwiches.

Gobun's sandwich blog the other day got me hungry. And not just hungry, but hungry for a damn sandwich! It was then when I was inspired. I was going to build one of the best sandwiches I've ever made. And I shall call it The Gobun, after ...

 
 
 

MMO Stories: /rage

I'm not much of an MMO player. Most people I know who play MMO's try all the new ones out and stick with one, or even two. For me, I have a hard time getting past a free trial. There's rarely any allure to an MMO for me. But there is one ...

 
 
 

EA: Battlelol and Early Access Money

So we all know what Battlelog is, and what it's used for by now, right? Well over the past few days I've come to like the functions of Battlelog. It's nice to have a social networking site where you can chat, organize games with friends, ...

 
 
 

Mario saves the Princess in World 1-4 (Or Does He?)

Now, okay. Do keep in mind that this is only slightly above "Zelda kidnapping", in terms of kidnappings that seem to happen on a weekly basis. But happy to say, it looks like the princess will be rescued earlier than usual. Let's back up...

 
 
 

G3 - Now not live on Justin.tv!

Minecraft: Stuff I've Been Building

So recently I've gotten myself back into Minecraft. I seem to go through phases with the game. I'll play it religiously for two weeks, then not play for several months, repeat. With the 1.8 patch, my friends and I started up a small server ...

 
 
 

Review: Gears of Ultimate Frisbee in the Quad, Bro 3

Before I get into the review, let me give you a little backstory for this franchise. I had never heard of the GoUFitQB series until a few weeks ago. I met up with Max Scoville on Day 0 of PAX and gave him a copy of Gears of War, because I...

 
 
 

Gatorraid: The raid fueled by Gatorade.

I've had this idea for a while now. What if Blizzard implemented a World of Warcraft raid that was sponsored by Gatorade? They would call it The Gatorraid. Clever pun, I know. For the past few weeks I've been coming up with ideas on how it ...

 
 
 

Labor Day: Test of Faith

Mirror's Edge by DICE was, in my opinion, a pretty awesome game. It was nice to see DICE depart from Battlefield and try something different. Even today some games have emulated the use of parkour, but none have gone as extreme as Mirror'...

 
 
 

Improvements: You've Been Notified

Improvements for Destructoid? I have a few ideas. I already posted a couple in a blog Niero posted recently, so I'm going to post a couple here that I didn't post there. So here they are! First off is some sort of a notification system...

 
 
 

PAX Prime 2011: The Games

While at PAX, I played a few games. Shocking, I know. I didn't play a whole lot, but here's my rundown of what I played and saw. Lollipop Chainsaw Out of everything I played, this game was my favorite. Gameplay wise it was nothing very new...
