100 Reasons To Go To PAX 2009

It's hard to believe, but it's halfway there. I say that with a tone of optimism and sadness at the same time. In one hand, we are halfway to seeing each other again! On the other hand, unfortunately, 6 months is still a long time when yo...

 
 
 

Tales from IRC: The Greatest Sonic Game Ever

Jim Sterling, eat your fucking heart out. I know you champion yourself as the Sonic Defense Force, and think you know what it would take to make the next great Sonic game. But tonight in IRC we thought of undeniably the greatest Sonic gam...

Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? Unboxing

The last 30 hours or so there have been a shitton of cblogs about two big games that came out yesterday, Lost and the Damned and Street Fighter IV. I'm sure both of those games are swell, but it seemed like everyone forgot about the game I ...

 
 
 

Happy Birthday Blehman!

Today is the 27th birthday of one my best friends through Destructoid, Blehman. Blehman lives in Dallas, where I am originally from. I originally met him at the very first Texas NARP in October of 2007, amazing how time has flown by. Sinc...

 
 
 
 

Halo Wars is Officially the Worst Game EVER!

I would like to pause here and say, I'm not trying to fill Jim Sterling's shoes, he is much more of a man than I. But someone pointed this out to me and I couldn't help but facepalm. An overwhelming number of 115 non-press gamers have go...

 
 
 
 
 

Playing With Others: In Utero

I was born in August of 1987. When I was 3, in January of 1991, my parents told me that I was going to have a little brother. I realize that my age may make this story seem suspect, as people usually can't remember when they were that you...

 
 
 

Fear And Whoring In Las Vegas: Part One

6 am. 6 am is fucking early to me, but here I am, awake and getting ready to hit the road. Destination? Las Vegas, Nevada. Most people equate Vegas with drinking, gambling, fornication, and all around sinning. But this trip to Vegas is to...

 
 
 

My Turning Point Gaming Rig

This is my Turning Point Gaming Rig because it is the turning point in which I actually have a gaming rig! After my computer shat out on me over the holiday break, I needed a new comp, and I figured if I was going to get a new one it might ...

 
 
 
 
 

Concerning Destructoid, Females, And Intro Blogs

Something has occurred to me in the last few weeks, and that something is that we do not treat vaginas the same as we treat penii. "No shit", you're saying to yourself. It would be logical to think that since we're a bunch of sex-starved ...

 
 
 

Looking Back At 2008: An Introspective

[Yes, I tried to publish this a few days ago but I was having format problems. It is fixed now, so enjoy.] If you're here looking for another blog talking about 2008's video games, I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. Anyone can w...

 
 
 

FACT: Unofficial DToid IRC Can Get You Places

Yes, good ole IRC. Whether you've been there for a few weeks or since Bluewolf ran it *shudders*, you know of it's addicting nature. IRC is an amazing time waster whether you're at work, class, or home. But recently it seems like IRC has be...

 
 
 

Domo Arigato Destructoid

Hello Destructoid. You may remember me from such motion pictures as CinciNARP08 and PAX08. I saw Kryptinite (My favorite black bear) post this earlier and I'm drunk (not BHZ drunk, don't worry), so I figure I would post this saying how much...

 
 
 

Happy Birthday Camtub!!

Ah yes, everyone's favorite jolly green giant (giant in more ways than one), it is Butmac's birthday! Most of you know Butmac for doing hilarious videos, showing up at PAX, and being Dennis Lesica's soulmate (sorry Hollie), but I know him...

 
 
 

Another Miyamoto!hole Talks About NXE

And in this case, that asshole is me! So, NXE dropped today. I didn't get the beta version of it a few days ago, because to be honest, I really didn't care about it. "Damn Mii ripoffs, rabble rabble, fuckin casual market, rabble rabble r...

 
 
 

IRC: Party Like It's 1999

It's been a while since I've pimped out IRC, but I think it's high time that I do so again. The reason that I wrote this is that earlier someone quoted Chad talking about running over puppies and I thought "Chad hasn't been to IRC in a lo...

 
 
 

Happy Birthday (Dot)Tiff!

Yes, it is that day. The day that our good lord graced the planet with .tiff Dolores Chow. .tiff recently had to retire from her contributor status here at Destructoid due to real life, but we've never quit loving her for a second. I got ...

 
 
 

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand... Happy Birthday!

Yes, you know who I'm talking about. Everybody's favorite (long lost) RetroforceGo! host Dyson is having a birthday today! How old is he? Well...fucking old. Just kidding dude. (But seriously, he's an old man) Meeting Dyson was one of my ...

 
 
 

Damn It Japan

Ugh. Another great story about nerds acting irrational about MMOs, and the real world acting even more irrational about them. The story is, some Japanese lady was "married" to a guy in Maple Story (Can you even get married in that game?),...

 
 
 

Last Reminder: Texas NARP This Weekend

Yes, this weekend. As in, not tomorrow night, but the night after that. Friday night we will be descending on DVDDesign's apartment in Dallas, TX for some good ole fashioned drinking, Rock Banding, and all around video gaming. Saturday we...

 
 
 

Monday Night Melee: World at War Beta Edition

If you don't have a Call of Duty: World at War beta key yet, Eurogamer has about 15000 left but they won't last long! If you are able to get one, and want to check it out tonight with other DToiders, I will be hosting starting at 9 Easter...

 
 
 
 

A Movie Review: Choke

Last Friday, Clark Gregg's film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke was released in select theaters. I was busy this weekend, so I didn't get to see it opening weekend, but last night I had nothing else to do so I dragged a few friends ...

 
 
 

Blast from the Past

I don't know if this has already been shared, I haven't seen it yet, but if everyone else knows about it just let me know and I will hide this. My roommate just showed me this, apparently Google is a decade old as of 2008, and one way the...
