A Little Closure

So a few weeks ago I saw this game on the PlayStation Network called Closure. Usually when I'm drawn to a game it has alot to do with the presentation. I'd say most of today's games try to be as colorful and as visually appealing as they ca...

First Post

What up nerds? A long time ago, when I was a wee one in Northern England, my dad brought home this funny looking video game system. I had no idea what it was, but I'd come to learn not long after that it was an Atari (not sure what generat...

Decide What VIDJA GAEM I Play Next!

Back through the Omega 4 Relay, Shepard and Crew breathe one big sigh of relief as their final mission comes to a close. The credits roll as Mass Effect 2's epic final theme plays out. I got there without just jumping to the credits (becaus...

 
 
 

Downloadables: Father-Mother's Secret

It seems like straight up brawlers are a dying breed in the gaming world. It's understandable as technology evolves and the FPS continues to be gaming's most popular genre, the side scrolling beat 'em up of yore seem dated. Hack and Slash t...

 
 
 

Introducing Retro Fight Nights - Coming Soon!

F.3.A.R. - The Evolution Of The F.E.A.R. Series

Aaamaazing: Stars, Shadows, Wars & Nintendo

Supposedly Bad Sequels: Kane & Lynch 2

[Note: This is one of them there fancy smancy "opinion" pieces. Hence it's my opinion and thus in no way a definitive authority on the subject matter. It's also a look at sequels that I feel ultimately outdo their predecessor and more so it...

 
 
 

Call Of Duty: First Strike Contest Winners!

Occam's Package! (Picture Heavy, one is NSFW)

A while back whilst sitting in a session of whatever the hell it was we were playing at the time, Occams Electric Tooth Brush casually announced he'd be sending out some packages to some of us fine folks here at the Destructoid. As you all ...

 
 
 
 

My Extremely Huge Backlog

360 FNF: Call Of Dooooooddyyy

Calll Offff Dooooooddddy is a battle cry I sometimes let loose because I used to look down on the franchise. Another silly fucking herp-a-derp army game awash in a sea of herp-a-derp army games. Sure you won't find me going out to get the...

360 FNF: Super Meat Boy Edition

As I struggle to understand a world so cold, I try desperately to reach out to "New Destructoid" to find that I think some of my browser settings are screwing with me in that respect. So fuck it. Let's do this. Super Meat ...

 
 
 

Chuck Greene, Psychopath

I won't lie, this was sort of inspired by Disco's latest blog 'No GTA IV' but definitely not as much testing was put into it. I realized early on that to really appreciate the limits of a game you have to use your imagina...
