Papers, Please: The Time Sega Power Went Nuts

My age had nudged into the double-digits and I had already amassed a huge amount of Commodore 64 magazines (which I sadly allowed my father to throw out…argh. I regret that). From the time my brother got us a Sega Master System...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Predictions: Surfer Girl Not Included

Hello. I’m sure you’ll have guessed by now that this blog will be concerning this week’s musing, regarding what the year 2012 holds for gamers. I’d thought that, rather than focus on just one particular gaming-based idea for the near fu...

 
 
 

Acquisition: Midcity Madness

Shepherds Bush, London, under a decade ago. I was standing around in frustration at my recent efforts to accomplish what I thought would be an ideal; my attempt to progress at an Unreal Tournament 2003 World Cyber Games qualifier came to...

 
 
 

Countdown to Eurogamer 2011: A Look at Last Year

Hollie and the gang hanging out at her home For those of you basking in the memories of PAX Expos, E3 and Gamescom, you’d be forgiven for believing that all of these shows managed to cover all of the forthcoming videogame treats for the ...

 
 
 

Handhelds: But Look at All This SPACE!

I noticed the title for the weekly C-blog musing and thought could I really be bothered to write about a favourite/worst handheld? I couldn’t be. In the end, I’ve decided to do something a little different. Instead of a sharp focus on ...

 
 
 

Fail List: Before You Die Edition

Fail List: Before You Die Edition This is it. The big list. About as close to the ‘ultimate list’ as you can get. When Cassell Illustrated published their 1001 series of books, the first one that caught my eye was 1001 Albums You Must...

 
 
 

A Temporary Greek Tragedy: Law 3037/2002

2002 was an interesting year. The Allied forces were in Afghanistan and (unwisely) trying to get stuck into Iraq as well; the World Cup was held in Japan and South Korea, eventually being won by Brazil; Joe Strummer, Dudley Moore and Spi...

 
 
 
 

Enslaved: Batthink’s Viewpoint

Some of you have no doubt had a look at Ace Flibble’s blog (the one rather unfortunately posted below two spam-blogs for a penal-enhancement advert) about his experience playing the first seven levels of Ninja Theory’s Enslaved. For thos...

 
 
 

Fail List: Toy Gun is Not Sexy Edition

Good afternoon. It has been a while since my eyes managed to spy another videogame-based list for a gander. That was until I saw this; Hey, a semi-laddish technology magazine will get your attention if it has GAMING in BOLD BLUE LETTER...

 
 
 

The Short History of World Cup Themed Football Games

Warning: if you are American, the game that is being referred to as ‘football’, by the author from the United Kingdom, is actually what you would term ‘soccer’. In order to respect both sides’ views of what this sport should be termed, p...

 
 
 

Fail List - Inaccurate Title Edition

I usually get some great responses to some of the newspaper/magazine videogame lists, so imagine my joy when I found the Independent had done a top fifty list themselves in their Information weekend pull-out. The only problem was that I ha...

 
 
 
 

Destructoid UK’s London February Meet Up

Twas on the Friday 12th February that the UK-based members of Destructoid popped over to London for good times. Our organiser, Hollie (AKA Phoenix), couldn’t join us, and I had initially concern that the absence was because of her eye, w...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Choice Scans of GamesTM Magazine: E3 Round Up

I received my copy of UK magazine GamesTM through the door on Saturday. A good thing too; I needed something to take my mind off the dwindling bank account I have. As this was the one which covered E3, there was plenty of news that you ha...

 
 
 
 

Mystery Square Enix Game Teaser

Getting the news from Videogamer.com, you hear bullets zinging away, explosions and an ominous comment from JFK listed across a large (possibly Asian) cityscape here. The site hazarded a guess at either a new IP, or the fact that it coul...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Update and PSP Poser

Hello, and it’s a big welcome back to Mr. Batthink, one of the many lurkers that this wonderful site called Destructoid has. For those new to me, and wondering who the hell I am, this amazing lad of 27 years of age who has overcome mental ...

 
 
 

The Art Dump (Week 11: Secret Shake Edition)

Welcome back to another edition of the Art Dump. Above is, what I believe the crescendo of humour witnessed in HiImDaisy's Metal Gear Solid 2 events in four parts. It's like a 'Shakespeare's complete works in ten minutes' version. Re...
