Maturity in Video Games (Podtoid Question)

I kinda feel a little self conscious writing this because it seems a bit self-referential, but whatever. I knew the question would come out wrong on Podtoid, so allow me to clarify. The question I asked boiled down to: When or how will th...

 
 
 

One Week Memory: Playstation 2 Rumours

Last time I said that Shit be unreal. Right now, Shit be dipping its toe in the waters of real, wearing gold plated armbands of respect and wearing jewel encrusted goggles of some other hip-hop term Iím not down with. Simply, this one is ...

 
 
 

One Week Memory: Left 4 Dead

I donít like games magazines at all. The price is a major off-put, they are slow - often weeks late with the big news and they are no better written than most online publications. The additional numerous mistakes and typos are like the fe...

 
 
 
 

A Fun Game

Arena Wars is fun, attractive and simple, yet infinitely replayable. Put simply, itís what Unreal Tournament would be like if it was an RTS. The true depth, however, is something you experience by playing it. It isnít a Triple A title, bu...

 
 
 

Seven Ways to Get More Fun Out of Left 4 Dead

A few weeks ago, I was playing through No Mercy on Expert for what was probably the twelfth time, and I realised I wasnít having any fun any more. This was probably because I had been burning through the same map over and over until my ey...

 
 
 
 

Beyond Good and Evil 2 Finally Greenlit

Beyond Good and Evil has been Greenlit after several months of delays and speculation. It has had a rough ride. The original was released in Q4 of 2003 to massive critical acclaim and poor sales. If you haven't played it, go buy it on Stea...

 
 
 

Skulltag

Studies have proven that you are all wanks. But enough about that, letís talk about something that could help you diminish your wankieness. Skulltag is an engine-port-mod thing for Doom. Iíve seen a fair few doom mods flying around the I...

 
 
 

Trine Looks Different and Amazing

It does. Trine is a PSN exclusive from the look of it, which means tough luck for me. But I want to post this trailer because the kind of person who frequents Destructoid should like the look of it. Enjoy!

 
 
 

Use Your Pain Pills

If Left 4 Dead had a soundtrack, that would be the title of the album. I will now provide an argument as to why you should put down your med kit and pop some pills instead. 1. 80% of pills go to waste Just think of those poor pills. Th...

 
 
 

The Valve Effect

Games, like life, cheese and Bill Bailey, are things that I will never really understand, but enjoy anyway while I make haphazard, self-centred guesses at why I love them. Well, not so much life. Right now, I am going to coin a phrase tha...

 
 
 

Shortblog: Left 4 Dead

I'm not doing an overly elaborate write up this time, just a brief summery. Mainly because I can't be arsed to get the filler pictures and make them funny. I played Left 4 Dead at Eurogamer a few weeks back and I was underwhelmed. I put th...

 
 
 

Audiosurf: Bewilderment

Where I live, £1.60 can buy you a small birthday or Christmas card. It can buy you a 250g bar of chocolate, a packet of self tapping screws, or a bus ticket from 1998 when we were living in sensible economic times. If youíre very lucky, y...

 
 
 
 

I Think We're Forgetting Something

We've come a long way over the years, in all conceivable means; from technology to social networks, gaming have evolved. We are smarter, we are more discerning, we play whole new experiences and we hear fresh revelations every single day - ...

 
 
 

London MCM: A Chronology of Disaster

I don't do events like this often. Maybe the reasons are the exact list of things I am about to mention, in which case my complaints will seem pitiful and naÔve to a more experienced con-goer. Maybe I just got the short straw and things wil...

 
 
 

Video Games Live

I'm going to have to post about this eventually so let's get it over with. Video Games Live was great. It was healthily above that which I expected. There were a few surprises and a few highlights, as well as the inevitable selection of ...

 
 
 

Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41 - 45 (Realism in Games)

I'm not predisposed to dislike any kind of game so long as it is fun and not a sports sim or a JRPG or a game with singing. I've always been open to the slews of WWII clones even though they do contain possibly the highest percentage of d...

 
 
 

A little gem from SingSterling (Update: Epicness!)

I couldn't resist but save this. If you're not there, you don't know what you're missing. Timewarp, you are now immortalilsed as an Internet Douchebag for brutally slandering Lemon's name, despite your hapless, innocent protests. Thank yo...

 
 
 

The Ship

The ship is a game that I was really interested in when it was released, due to its unique presentation, intriguing game mechanics and the fact that it used the source engine. I never acquired it because it was a wholly online affair and ...

 
 
 

Zombie Panic: Source

I know you're hyped for Left 4 Dead. You should be, because not only is the idea utterly epic, but it's developed by the most trustworthy game developer imaginable. Valve have proven themselves capable time after time, and fusing their de...

 
 
 

Red Alert 3 trailer makes me feel 7 years younger

I know there are a lot of people who are tired of hearing the DRM argument over and over but there's a reason why we complain so much about this kind of thing. I never buy games at launch, but if there were three titles I would be willing ...

 
 
 

Portal: Prelude

Portal has had some incredible mileage. First, there was the original 3 hour game, which was unique enough to provide plenty of replay value in itself, but which also included developer commentary, challenge levels, advanced maps and time...

 
 
 

Portal: Prelude Released...

Surely not... how could this escape internet attention? Surely someone posted about this yesterday... I don't see any posts, so please point me to them if I missed them. For the rest of us, Portal Prequels! An unofficial Portal Prequel wa...

 
 
 
 

Viva Pinata: TIP Impressions

I never buy games new. I don't intentionally buy them pre-owned, I simply don't see the price worth the risk. It doesn't pay off, it almost never pays off, and I only really support games that offer me something worth that price, such as ...

 
 
 

Universe at War for £1

In case you're interested, you can get the full PC game of Universe at War for £1 at Sainsbury's. I'm saying this, I don't actually know whether this is just my local store or all stores, but I'm going to check back as soon as possible to...

 
 
 

But I Didn't Give You My Contact Info...

So, this is an interesting development. Minutes ago, I got an email from Pogo Customer Service, which turned out to be a standard password recovery email, containing one permutation of the password that I use. Like a clever sod, I have a h...

 
 
 

Bionic Commando

To those who told me to pick up BC Rearmed -I am somewhat perplexed by your inclination and would appreciate the opportunity to insinuate otherwise. But instead of detailing every event leading up to my inflamed opinion like I usually do,...
