On torture in games

Hello! I just discovered this sitting in my drafts area from way back in November 2017. It's not as fully complete as I want it to be, but it's still something I'm pretty passionate about. I'll get right to it: this'll be about Grand T...

 
 
 
 
 

Nintendo NX to include HD DVD drive?

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)

What shall we do with the last-gen gamers?

First impressions of MGSV are wholly positive.  The game, viewed within the context of its own series, has evolved.  The title screen features a grim-looking Snake/(Boss) looking out at you, so different to the weary salutes of Old Snake in...

 
 
 

A love/hate letter to GTA V.

Is Grand Theft Auto Online worth it? I, for one, do not believe so. To me, it seems like the normally glorious, jam-packed single-player mode Rockstar provides once every three or so years has had, to mangle a phrase, a little too much cosm...

 
 
 

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 '85, Bryan's first self-bought console was the sublime SNES and he hasn't used his opposable thumbs for much else since then. Still searchin' for them glory days he never had.
