Everybody should stop by, "The Onion" this week.

The Onion is a genius news satire site that informs and lampoons. I bring it up here because it is having an in focus week on video games and some of their funnier articles can be found, compiled, at the bottom of the page. Check it out. ...

 
 
 

The Wii, an alcoholic gamers dream.

Have you ever tried to co-ordinate your thumbs after a box of wine? Or a bottle of spirits? Or when you reached a BAL of .304? Look, I drink, alot. My job puts me in close proximity with barmen, who are ferocious drinkers, and, as they ar...

 
 
 
 
 

Well great, now I have an erection.

I am ashamed to say it but I loves me some girls dressed as fanboy stuff. It is probably due to a broken sexual development that grew around Saturday morning cartoons and videogames. But no matter which way you slice it, this is damn pre...

 
 
 
 

DO NOT BUY SVR 2008 FOR Wii, PLEASE DON'T!!!

I love pro-wrestling. If anyone here is from Brisbane, and wants to start a league, drop me a line. Nothing spawns more rabid fandom than pro wrestling, except games. So when a wrestling game is made it draws attention. I have not played m...

 
 
 
 

I need words and silence.

This is going to sound a tad mad and as I have been drinking to celebrate a rather easy Psychology test it is understandable. Well thought out folk like cowzilla, Jim, Wardrox and everyone who has posted a message about games as art have c...

 
 
 

Metroid Prime 3, like sex, except I'm having it.

Yes, finally, I have put something in my Wii that's not Wiisports or a drunkenly motivated attempt at "man and machine, power EXTREME", except with my wang. I was told the opening hour was dull but I have enjoyed every bit of it so far, ki...

 
 
 

IGN Wii Australia, pointless.

I'll admit that I go to IGN on occasion. Stop looking at me like that. It was one time I swear it was just a stupid mistake, me and the guys were drunk and we sorta got outta hand, don't be like this baby. Anyway, a little while back they ...

 
 
 

The things I do for games.

My relatives, on my mothers side, were instrumental in the formation of Australias Labor party, it was a leftist party designed to get workers treated as something more than disposable fodder. It is now a mirror version of Australia's conse...

 
 
 

What's in a number?

OMG!!!! Mario Galaxy only got a 9.5 on Gamespot and a 9.7 on IGN, but that means they are not perfect and I can't buy them cause I have tied my self esteem to this game and that's like them saying that I am not great in every way and that m...

 
 
 

Gaming journalism needs balls.

I should preface this by saying that, while I am a Journalism major, I am not studying the practical aspect but rather semiology and the control schema that are interwoven throughout the media. So this is not some rant by a wannabe journo b...

 
 
 
 
 

A bottle of rum and a fanboy armistice.

I am again, sparked by xeroxmes horrible live action experience with a fanboy, driven to rant about fans. I AM A FANBOY. I love sci-fi, fantasy, TV, cinema, comics, video games, books et-fucking-cetera. But the kind of fanboy we deal wit...

 
 
 
 

I need help.

I've got Street Fighter Alpha 3 on MAME and I'm wanting to use Juli, Juni and Balrog. Trouble is, those codes are time released and I have no idea how to get that to happen. I assume there has to be something in MAME that will allow me to ...

 
 
 

SF3 THIRD STRIKE IS THE BEST TWO DEE FIGHTER EVER!

I never thought I would have to post this, this is like saying eating is good or Bruce Campbell is a boddhisatva, this is just one of those things that goes without saying. But no, doubt still exists and madmen keep saying otherwise, so it...

 
 
 

Destructoid needs a trading post.

I am not an "ist" of any description. I feel that every socio-political idea has a way of functioning in society and that the problem is in that people pin their ideas to a single narrow thought process and that our government acting throug...

 
 
 

Games of Shame: Street Fighter the movie the game.

There's a line in Fight Club about that sore tooth that you can't stop jabbing with your toungue, and I am like that. Not "like that" in the "manifesting my repressed homosexuality as a schizophrenic hallucination" way, but in the "have to ...

 
 
 

First year final exams or video games? Shit.

I feel as though I have been fucked around by some bastard genie. I have never had alot of cash which has always meant one system and a painfully slow purchase rate for games and long were the hours that I wished this situation changed. S...

 
 
 

I bought a new gamepad today.

I have a fuck-tonne of arcade roms, mostly fighters, including: Killer Instincts 1&2 (they are not bad games dammit) Time Killers Blood Storm Every SNK fighter- except the new KoFs that aren't emulated. All the Street Fighters- Why does ev...

 
 
 

Schrodingers Wiisucks.

Anybody who bitches about this being old news can suck it, as, like a mystical group of midnight cobbler-elves, all this stuff happens when I am asleep forcing me to jump in as the wave is dying. That said here are my theories, yes mine, E...

 
 
 

Point and click interactiventure games.

I love the old point and clicks. The hilarity of Larry Laffer, Roger Wilco and the Tentacles. The serious investigations of Gabriel Knight and George Stobbart. The ridiculous use-the-feather-on-the-human-cannonball-to-open-the-cage-to-get-t...

 
 
 

There's something about Cammy.

I can't figure out why, whenever she is mentioned in a Street Fighter related post, people act like she is the best addition to the Street Fighter cast. I must be missing something. Any people here who use Cammy in either Alpha 3 or SSF2...

 
 
 

I live under a rock.

Being a poor student I've not the resources to spend on luxuries like "housing" as I tend to spend my government stipend on video games and booze. As a result of this, I have taken up residence in a small recess beneath a large boulder, as ...

 
 
 

Okami coming to Wii and about damn time.

http://kotaku.com/gaming/rumor-confirmed/okami-wii-confirmed-312378.php This is great news. Not just because it is a great game, but it is a great game coming to a system that is PERFECT for the play mechanics. This is a PS2 port that Wii...

 
 

About soul3150one of us since 1:28 AM on 09.13.2007

I can't remember my friends names but I still remember the every move in any Street Fighter game, ever. I'm an absurdist existentialist with shades of zen taoism, but call me that and I'll deny it. I own a Wii, a DS and frequently partake of my friends other 360's and PS3's. Games are art. Games are new media that must be understood.
