10 Bad Arguments from Pop Culture Critic apologists

The reason I titled this "10 Bad Arguments from Pop Culture Critic APOLOGISTS" instead of "10 Bad Arguments from Pop Culture CRITICS" is that, from my experience, pop culture critics don't actually make arguments. They criticize things...

 
 
 

In defense of "the hate" Part 2: Hyperbole

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about "the hate" in the video game community. Gamers are portrayed as being hateful, mean, sadistic bullies who wish death on those who don't share their opinions. Those who make this characteriza...

 
 
 

In defense of "the hate."

Recently, a bunch of developers supposedly signed some petition urging gamers to stop "hating." We've also been hearing a similar rhetoric from journalists for a while now. It is my belief that there is very little, if any, actual hate goin...

 
 
 
 

Latest Tropes Vs. Cow Dumping is very reasonable

Cow dumps are not very comfortable to look at. Really, smelling them isn't either. I've always preferred to taste them. Just kidding. That's my idea of opening with humorous banter. Anyway, the newest(mooest?) cow taking a dump video is ...

 
 
 

Nintendo's Smash Bros. 'joke' causes trouble

Nintendo caused a bit of a storm during its new Smash Bros. character reveal. The problem arose when Wii Fit Trainer, A WOMAN, said in her character introduction trailer, "Feel the burn!" This blew up on Twitter and other social networks...

 
 
 

Another Blog About Gender Stuff In Games

This originally started as a reply to someone else's blog, but it started getting pretty long. So I decided to just make it into my own blog. Game companies don't have an agenda other than that they want to make money. They design their ga...

 
 
 

Siblings Before Prostitutes

In light of the whole controversy surrounding the "Bros Before Hos" trophy in the recently released God of War: Ascension, I thought that I would share my thoughts on the whole situation. First of all, let me start by saying that I think b...

 
 
 

Words I Typed About Tomb Raider

I've never been a big Tomb Raider fan. In fact, I don't think that I've played Tomb Raider since the PS1 games, and, even then, it was never for more than a few minutes. So it should come as no surprise that I haven't really been keeping up...

 
 
 

Plight of the Mega Man Fan

Ever since Capcom's recent announcement that Mega Man and Pac-Man would be joining the already impressive roster of characters in Street Fighter X Tekken, Mega Man fans have been irate. You might think that they'd be happy, as the surprise ...

 
 
 

Feel Free To Pirate This

I just got through watching the latest Jimquisition about piracy, where Jim Sterling argues that the problem is publishers not making their content available in a way that is convenient for consumers. While I agree that this is part of the ...

 
 
 

SOPAking retarded

I'm bored; so I figured I'd write a blog about my thoughts on how SOPA will turn out. Warning, possible spoilers lie ahead. SOPA won't pass, because too many people are against it since it allows the government to do X, Y, and Z. That's wa...

 
 
 

Q&Aaay: Is It Normal For People Over 30...

Hi, pals. This is Mr. Plow. This is a new reoccurring bit I'll be doing until I get bored of it(meaning this will probably be the last one) called Q&Aaay. The way it works is people, usually ones made up by me, send me questions(or 'Q's)...

 
 
 

Dead Space 2 Review by Craig Tiller; Age 12

Dead Space 2 is a game I played. I'm going to write about its cool things, scary things, and sexy things. The first time I beat it my brother played all the hard parts for me. Then I played it again and beat it all by myself. I've beaten it...

 
 
 

Greg Miller Is A Douchebag

As you all know, there's a huge controversy going on over Nintendo's plans to open up a new Nintendo Store near ground zero. People are upset because Nintendo's use of motion controls in video games is insensitive to the fact that the plane...

 
 
 
 

Top Several Reasons Why Sheep Man Should Be In MVC3

For those of you who haven't been keeping up, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is the long awaited sequel to 2009's Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 for the Nintendo DS. Ever since the game was first announced at whatever event it was announced at, people hav...

 
 
 
 

ESRB Is Rated P For Pointless

NOTE: (I'm also against official ratings boards for movies and music for the same reasons I'm about to argue against the ESRB. I'm just focusing on the ESRB because I figured it's the most relevant to people who read Destructoid.) The ESR...

 
 
 

Dr. Pepper's Anatomy House NVGR

I've recently realized that there are about 50 billion shows about doctors on TV, none of which are good as far as I can tell. I've never liked Scrubs, I could never get into House, and I've never even seen Grey Anatomy but it probably suck...

 
 
 
 
 

The Only Thing I Know

This blog reflects my real life experiences with reading. I offer the following to all those willing to listen. How best to say this... Understand that I'm not the kind of person to sit behind a keyboard and believe that what I think will ...

 
 
 

Time To Get Some New Clocks NVGR

Why do face clocks and watches still exist? We have a superior way of telling time now. Who the hell is still using a face clock? And why do we require kids to learn how to tell time, by using a face clock, in school? When I was in the s...

 
 
 

Everybody's Super Sonic Racing... ...WITH A CAR!!!

Ever since Sonic & Sega's All-Stars Racing was first announced, people have been asking the same thing. Every single time anyone posts about it, be it on Destructoid or any other site, someone always has to ask why Sonic needs a car. Maybe...

 
 
 

The 10 Commandments Are For Noobs(Saibot) (NVGR)

Why do people have all these stupid "Keep The 10 Commandments In Our Courthouse" bumper stickers? The 10 Commandments are completely insane. If I thought for one second that our legal system was in any way influenced by those stupid command...

 
 
 

Saying Things Write (NVGR)

The English language is stupid. There are too many pointless rules. Take the sentence "My brother and I went to the store.", for example. Why does it have to be said exactly like that. At first I always want to say "Me and my brother went t...
