Improvements, Part 2

Okay, Destructoid. I know that this isn't the weekly topic, and I already made some suggestions a while back. Now that I've had a few weeks to think about the subject, I've got a few new suggestions, ones I don't think I saw mentioned. Feel...

 
 
 

Luckiest Studio Ever: Ninja Theory

Ninja Theory is the luckiest studio alive. The fact that Tameem Antoniades had the balls to blame consumers for Ninja Theory's woes, woes meaning Ninja Theory is still working instead of expanding, basically says all that needs to be said a...

 
 
 
 
 

Relaxation: Docile Body, Active Mind

While I've got a warehouse job where I'm management, it's a far cry from simply sitting at a desk. The warehouse in which I work is massive, and my duties require me to traverse the length of the place multiple times a day in between bout...

 
 
 
 

The Future of Gaming

Alright, so I've discussed why retail bans of games won't work as a way of stopping digital distribution, as well as touching on the issue of how GameStop can prevent themselves from going the way of Blockbuster or HMV. That leaves me with ...

 
 
 
 

The Threat of a Retail Ban Is Without Merit

Back in July, I wrote an article about Digital Distribution. And the thing is, I noticed a common theme in the comments for the article: The fact that retailers, specifically GameStop, could crush a revolution in digital distribution befo...

 
 
 

Contestoid: Gears of War 3, It's a-gettin' close!

Contest Information! Now, for this one, I've decided we'll do something a little bit different. Like always, I'm going to come up with a random, painful, or otherwise aggravating task for you, the contestant, to participate in! Or, in th...

 
 
 
 

Improvements: I've got ideas, too!

Hey Destructoid. Look, I love you. I really do. My employer probably pays me for about an hour a day to browse you. But there's a few things that you could do which would make me love you even more. Moar Promoted Blogs I know not everythi...

 
 
 

Contestoid: Gears of War 3, OW MY WALLET edition!

So, I picked a winner for my Lie for a Wii contest, and it turns out that ManWithNoName lives in Brazil. It turns out that there's a tax on gaming in Brazil, and in order for me to honour my $100 contest prize, I'd have to spend about $50...

 
 
 

PDP Versus Pad Review: A Layman's Perspective

The PDP Versus Pad was originally available as the PDP Marvel Versus Pad. I feel it's necessary to point that out, because I'll admit that when the pad first came out, that was one of the two factors which made me decide against picking one...

 
 
 

Catherine!!!! ...is delayed, apparently.

So... Tonight, after dinner, I set out on my bike to pick up my pre-ordered Love Is Over edition of Catherine for my Xbox 360. That route took me across a four-kilometer stretch of Danforth Avenue in Toronto. Now, for those of you unfamil...

 
 
 
 

Contestoid: Lie for a Wii, bitches!

Now, this isn't my Gears 3 contest. I'll get back to that in a couple weeks, when the Gears of War release date is looming over me... But Contest-running's in my blood. Doing cool things for a great community is ingrained in me. And thank...

 
 
 

Impressions of the Catherine demo

Now that I've got my hands on the Catherine demo, I've got one thing to say... I've been playing Tales of Vesperia recently. So hearing Troy Baker flirting with and talking to Michelle Ruff as Vincent and Katherine is freaking weird after...

 
 
 

Contestoid: Time to lie, bitches!

So... I can buy Nintendo Wiis for $99.99. As a delaying tactic for my other contest of giving out Gears 3 shit, I'm going to be sending a Nintendo Wii to a member of Destructoid this Friday, since I've gotta buy one anyway. And if I'm ge...

 
 
 

The Future of Gaming: Clouds, Bases, and Harmony

Cloud gaming is here, and every time I hear about it I want to smack someone. No, I'm not interested. Yes, it could have some interesting uses, but playing Crysis 3 on a computer 5,000 miles away instead of the computer in my living room is...

 
 
 

On Travel, PSP, and FKK/Sauna Clubs

This is not going to be a long blog post. Or at least, it's not going to be long by my standards, which means it's probably still going to come off as a little bit long, but not overly long. It's also only tangentially related to gaming in ...

 
 
 

You're Not A Real Fan

I got into a rather interesting discussion with a friend the other day. It mainly had to do with the concept of being a fan, and how I'd told her she wasn't. She argued with me about the matter, and we had a smashing good time going back an...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

That Post-Game Glow: Sequence

As Conrad recently pointed out, Sequence is a recently-released Xbox Live Indie Game which marries the idea of a rhythm game to an RPG and the result is a pleasant surprise. This will not be a review, because the math on this is very, very...

 
 
 
 
 

About meteorscrapone of us since 11:18 AM on 08.18.2010

My name is meteorscrap.

Occasionally I'll post random thoughts and musings here which are too long, too detailed, or otherwise don't fit in the comments section. Given the length of some of the stuff I've left as a comment, you can well imagine what I consider long.

Do you like words? 'cause I got a lot for you.
