Norse Mythology on Ice

This article was originally published in the Wednesday September 10th edition of the York Excalibur and posted online on September 15th on the Excalibur website. Have you ever been dragged to the Ice Capades? To me, plays performed on ic...


A Drunken Discovery: The Good Kind!

In case the title isn't enough to convince you that this isn't a story about hookers, she-males or she-male hookers who I have no relationship with. There is a sultry mistress involved with this story, but I'm getting ahead of myself. The ...


E3 Anticipation 2008

Maybe I've been absent minded, but I completely forgot about Electronic Entertainment Expo this summer. Now every video game publication on the internet has reminded me, and who am I to stand out from the crowd? Before I get too deep i...


Catch Up With What I've Been Playing!!!

Reading about what total strangers think about games is exciting, isn't it? Maybe, but regardless of whether or not this makes Grade A Quality Toilet Material I thought I'd pool together some of my thoughts about what I've been playing rece...


Prey: The Skeptic Angel

Last weekend Steam had Prey on sale for 5 bucks, and like any thinking man I grabbed it. A friend of mine played and enjoyed it, but never bothered to pick it up before.I like it so far, even if the visuals are dated by now. The characte...


Good Morning

About TheBorbesone of us since 10:45 AM on 03.19.2008

Good morning,

I'm Bob Forbes, or if you're having a moment of stupidity in your grade nine science class and write those two names together, I'm Borbes. I've decided to start up a Destructoid blog simply because I want a space to write about games on an impulse. If I think of something while playing Halo 3 or Rock Band, I'll probably post it here. If anyone ever makes a program that will let us decode our Brawl replays, you better believe Youtube and Destructoid will see'em.

So, not much more to know about me. I'm 23 years old, hail from Toronto on the sunny beaches of Canada. I currently write for the Science and Technology section of The Excalibur, The York University Community Newspaper. Pretty fancy stuff. I also had a large hand in gamersblock.net during the summer, though I no longer contribute for the site. Since my newspaper articles are often restricted by space, they tend to be shorter than I'd like, so you might expect to see some full-length stuff here.

Thanks for reading.
