Stop. Look around.

Here's a gaming habit I hope to break.  I often find myself racing through beautiful, meticulously crafted environments just to complete some objective, progress the story, or collect some thing to upgrade some other thing. But there was...

 
 
 

My Expertise: The Guardian

Lost all your lives while playing Contra? Just steal some of mine. That goes for any Mario game, too. Got your ass handed to you by that last horde in Left 4 Dead? Here, use my first aid kit. Yeah, I know my health is just as low as ...

 
 
 
 

Love/Hate: Assassin's Creed as a series

***Spoilers to follow*** Assassin's Creed is one of the most polarizing series in all of gaming. But it doesn't always boil down to you love it or you hate it. It seems like the majority of people recognize the flaws of the original, b...

 
 
 

Love/Hate: Realism

Like a million, bajillion polygons....awesome. I should really call this blog Love/Love: Realism, cause whoa dude: realistic games rule. Thanks to realism, I get to bound across rooftops in a beautifully rendered Renaissance era Venice,...

 
 
 

Introduction blog...10 blogs late.

Sorry. So, umm...I made a owie. I accidentally posted like a bajillion blogs (hyperbole) and never thought to introduce myself. I'd like to finally remedy that. Everyone acknowledge my trespass? Can we move past it? Ok, good. Down ...

 
 
 

Stop being a passive gamer.

***Very mild spoilers for Uncharted 2 to follow – no plot stuff*** This blog post by Kauza got me thinking. He discussed the “mediocre” shooting gameplay of Uncharted 2 sort of smudging the otherwise brilliant image of the overall pack...

 
 
 

Livening up the whiteboard at work.

My friend and I are trying to spruce up our otherwise boring ass whiteboard in time for Halloween. He made the badass jack o' lantern and I contributed the Boo. I might throw in a dry bones too. Any suggestions?

 
 
 

Best Video Game Music Ever (You listen now!)

Simple criteria for making it on this list: does it have a knack for getting stuck in my head? Does it remind me of why I love video games in the first place? The following ten are all a given based on those qualifications. #10 Batman ...

 
 
 

Did anybody else draw these as a kid?

Ah, 6th grade. A time of Pogs, Magic Eye books, and crippling pubescence. I suppose my own hormonal shifts coupled with the visual rhetoric of games like the Nes Castlevania caused me to whip up one of these bad boys on a daily basis, l...

 
 
 

Nothing is Sacred: Meaningless Enemies

Resistance, Left 4 Dead, Ninja Gaiden, Gears of War, Killzone 2, Halo, any given WW2 shooter and virtually any action game ever made have one thing in common: hordes of copy/paste adversaries. Sure, this enemy over here may wear a differ...

 
 
 

The Forgotten: Skies of Arcadia

I hated RPG's in high school. Couldn't stand them. They were cryptic, esoteric, unapproachable things that, for god knows what reason, all of my friends adored. I tried my best to give RPG's a fair shake but nothing doing. I was told ...

 
 
 

inFamous vs Assassin's Creed

I recently finished inFamous and came away from the experience very underwhelmed. I bought the game based on the hype and subsequent stellar review score from ign. In retrospect, I wish I would have been aware of Destructoid before making...

 
 
 

What were your favorite Colossi?

*Semi-spoilers* (if you haven't played SotC and don't want to have any of the colossi ruined for you, stop right here). However, I'm not going to give away any plot details. I figured I'd touch on something positive since my first blog po...

 
 
 

Modern Warfare 2 can go to hell

I was excited about Modern Warfare 2 at first, because holy shit, it looked great. Everything I saw from E3 was incredible looking, and left me frothing at the mouth to get a hold of what would certainly be the cinematic action experience ...
