Nintendo today announced a major component of their next generation machine, currently codenamed NX: a HD DVD drive.  In an unprecedented move, it will allow consumers the freedom to play DVD discs for the first time on a Nintendo...

 
 
 

Somebody invent PIN protection for save games, please!

I'm currently having a blast with the one and only Super Mario 64 via Wii Virtual Console and having even more of a blast because my three-and-a-half year old son and I are running around Bomb-omb Battlefield together collecting all manner ...

 
 
 
 

Let's get met[a]! (featuring Metacritic scores)

After several years of reading (and loving) games journalism I still cannot fathom how entire development bonus payments can be decided on the whimsical nature of a metascore average.  Thus, to illustrate this foolishness, and pon...

 
 
 
 

What shall we do with the last-gen gamers?

My 7th Gen: Xbox 360 games of note

It's always strangely satisfying and yet utterly compelling to read countless articles listing the successes, failures and obscurities of a particular console generation.  The joy lies in recognising where you've had the same experiences as...

 
 
 

Why I joined Destructoid

This evening has been a heady rush for me in signing up to Destructoid.  I have spent the last three days, more or less, reading reviews for Call of Duty: Ghosts.  I am reeling from recent news that Blockbuster (UK) have been put into admin...

Born in 1985, Bryan's first self-bought console was a SNES and he hasn't used his opposable thumbs for much else apart from gaming since then. He lives in the UK and writes to reminisce about the glory days. (Sadly they never existed.)
