Halo 3 Competition

Long story, read the full DToid CBlog craziness here thanks to iRaf I'm getting my hopes up. But it's currently 1am and I'm all hoped up on caffeine. But I'm like that when I buy a scratchcard, so I should probably get a hold of myself. Lo...

 
 
 

Question to Puzzle Fighter players

Ok, after playing the game and remembering how awesome it is and it being one of the few games I like playing online, I need some help. Which character do I choose? I get the pattern return idea, and that Dan is a joke character and that ...

 
 
 

Master Chief at Madam Tussauds

Halo fanboys should go and take a cold shower now. Leaked shots sent to the guys at GamerTagRadio suggest that a certain spartan may be arriving at Madam Tussauds some time soon. Apparently it's pretty much to scale and stands about 7ft...

 
 
 

Am I a bad person?

Googled for a Bioshock image and got this. Nothing to do with my post :D Ok, I completed Bioshock early this afternoon (Don't worry, no spoilers) and I had a bit of a gaming moral point. Should I trade the game in? The game is fantastic...

A momentous day!

10K Gamerscore, w00t w00t w00t! Finally managed to get over the 10000 points mark with a little help from Bioshock. Managed a nice 6 hours run, wearing nothing but my Guinesss underwear and surviving only on garlic bread and tea. Creepy ...

More Youtube WTFage

For anyone reeling from the crazy happenings in Forza, here's a little something from the lovely chaps over at 2Chan, the Japanese precursor to 4chan. They're pretty much the same, but 2chan is like 4chan with less child pornography. And mo...

 
 
 

Back at last in good ol' Blighty

Finally, back in my own home. As much as a bit of a technological detox is a nice change, it's great to have hot and cold running internets at your fingers. Managed to browse all the missed info (Cameron being a twat, Halo 3 gone gold, COD4...

 
 
 

Quick advice people

I need some new DS games. Something Puzzley or RPG and obscure. Also, are there any decent City building/Simulation DS games. I've heard that Sim City DS is made of fail, but I've heard good things about Anno 1701, anyone played it? My ca...

 
 
 

Greetings from Ireland!

So I'm in Ireland, in an internet cafe, still wanting to play Bioshock. I've had 3 texts about it (thankyou Garbz and various smug friends), seen 4 adverts and read 2 articles about it. I was trying for a bit of non-technological week, but ...

Bioshock Woes

After pre-ordering the collectors edition from a GAME in Clacton, I thought I was assured of getting it. "We'll only get a few" said the man behind the counter. A quick glance down at the pre-order sheet in front of him, there was one pre-o...

 
 
 

It finally happened...

I got a Space Giraffe achievement! The easiest one however, but hey, it's all good baby. See, I'm torn as a points whore: the fact that the game has fookin hard achievements and my love for the game itself. Although, I've gotten word th...

 
 
 

Frag Dolls not just Ubisoft Shills?

After a delightful night of alcohol for a friends 18th birthday, I nursed my minor hangover with heavily sugared McDonalds coffee and some podcasts (with the volume down low). I scrolled towards the new EGM Live* and nearly skipped to som...

Space Giraffe: An Explanation

Woke up, ate some Coco Pops and downloaded Space Giraffe. And I was right, it's awesome. To start of, the screens don't do it justice. Look at that. I've played the game for about an hour, and I don't know what's going on in that shot. It...

 
 
 

Destructoid, I thank you

I was always told that Destructoid was a pretty crazy place, and that it was too cliquey and hardcore. But it's not. It's misunderstood :D Just sew the seeds of a nice forum intro (read the sticky people :D), a few nice blog posts here, a...
