East Coast Blues

I am often tempted to start my own gaming publication. I think I'd keep it feature focused, with a strong opinion section and maybe only a smattering of reviews when big or interesting stuff comes along. I'd look for writers with the sort ...

 
 
 

Top 10 Games of my Life, Part 4: God of War

(Be forwarned: My most emo, self-indulgent post to date) Unemployment is like a broken quick time event. You wake up each day and follow the onscreen instructions but no matter how many times you mash the appropriate button it never seems ...

 
 
 
 

Weekday Release Dates

Now I understand that a lot of people work weekends. That said, what with the weekend generally being a time when a lot of folk have at least a day or so off, I can't help but wonder why in the hell publishers have to release games in the m...

 
 
 

"Blue streak speeds by, Sonic the Hedgehog..."

(Bonus points if you know which of the two Sonic cartoons the title of this post references. Hint: They both had the same name.) Up until 2009 I had never played a singe Sonic game all the way through. In fact, the only Sonic game I have b...

 
 
 
 

Dumbest Demon's Soul Death EVER!

I, like most everyone else who plays it, die a lot in Demon's Soul. Sometimes I die in stupid ways, as do many others. I actually enjoy activating blood stains just to watch some hapless fool hop off a cliff over and over again. That said, ...

 
 
 
 

Late Night Grinding

I know, I know. The title for this could very well be sexual innuendo, but despite the possible connotations I'm unfortunately referring to RPGs. The past few weeks have been kind to my PSP. Resident 2 and 3 have both been favorites, thoug...

 
 
 

Nemesis

I just read on N4G that Resident Evil 3: Nemesis will be hitting the PSN this week. While I'm certainly giddy about the prospect of more classic zombie killing a part of me isn't nearly as excited about it as I was for Resident Evil 2. Th...

 
 
 

Sony Owes Me One

Recently, a friend of mine began considering buying a console. While I have no idealistic preference toward either the Xbox 360 or PS3, I do use a PS3 as my primary gaming system, but if someone were to drop a 360 in my lap I wouldn't toss ...

 
 
 
 

Damn You Tekken 6!

I am not a fan of fighting games. In fact the only fond memory I can even recall connected to something in the fighting genre is that big jugged chick from Killer Instinct who kills people by flashing her hoonanners. So the question now i...

 
 
 

The Power of the Beard

My wife and I were hanging out together recently. I was up to my usual, playing some video games, while she was surfing the web. All of the sudden she laughed and said, "I'm so glad you grew a beard!" I glanced up from Demon's Soul, exhal...

 
 
 

No Willpower and Loving Dragon Age

I confess it. I have absolutely no ability to restrain myself when it comes to video games. You might recall a few posts back how I was sad that my time constraints had left me in a position where I didn't think I was going to be able to pl...

 
 
 

Delays

Howdy folk, It's been a few days since I've posted and unfortunately it might be a few more before I can put up anything on the substatnial side. I do however have another one of my Top 10 Games of My Life in the works. I had been trying t...

 
 
 
 

Passing Up On Good Games...

I've been interested in Dragon Age: Origins for a while now. I love the fantasy genre and generally speaking any game that looks to pull off a good take on it is on my radar from the get go. That said, as its PS3 release looms I find myse...

 
 
 
 

Impressions of Ju-On

Well, I finally received my review copy of Ju-On: The Grudge today and in short: AGGH! For all its many, many flaws the game has left me in a state of nervousness I haven't known since I saw Hostel with my wife (we afterward swore off any ...

 
 
 

Oh Why Have You Forsaken Me Ye Gods of Gaming!!!

I bought Uncharted 2 today, and I have yet to play it. No, you see, I've been doing some guide work and in addition to requiring loads of time, I've had to be constantly switching the cords in the back of my PS3. I've been using a GameBri...

 
 
 

How do they do it?

I have to come to learn something of guide writing. It sucks. It sucks so hard. It's like God looked down from the clouds and created a full-proof way to completely drain any semblance of fun from a video game. Play for fifteen seconds. ...

 
 
 
 

Top 10 Games of My Life, Part 4: Hitman 2

I had the pleasure of partaking in Video Games Live this year. Tommy Tallarico and his crew came to Burlington, Vermont for the first time in 2009 and it was a blast. At one point, Mr. Tallarico was talking to the crowd and broached upon th...

 
 
 

Waiting on MAG

Well, I'm rather stoked today. I received my copy of Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising so I can start my review for UGO. I'm doing a preview of MAG for FACEOFFGAMES, which means I got my hands on a beta code and for three I just score...

 
 
 

Tallying my backlog

Backlog. It easily the worst term in the gamer's dictionary. A gaming backlog is essentially just a representation of wasted money and worse then that, wasted potential. You look at that stack of un-played games and just know that they all ...

 
 
 

Go See Zombieland

I saw Zombieland for the second time tonight, and I have to say it is probably the best movie I've seen all year. Well, maybe it ties with Watchmen. Any who, it is just a great movie through and through providing a genuine brand of enterta...

 
 
 

My Demon's Soul Review at UGO

Well, my review for Demon's Soul just went up at UGO so, being the attention whore I am I thought I'd share it with the fine folks here Dtoid. Reading it you might typo at the end, which I'm wondering about because in my final word doc the ...

 
 
 

PSP Gripes

The PSP Go launches tomorrow and I suspect it will be to mixed results. On the one a bundle of them will definitely be sold, but on the other there is a distinct feeling that Sony could have moved more of them if they had just played things...

 
 
 

inFamous Flaws

I've been playing a lot of inFamous lately. I have to say it is really a fantastic game, easily one of my favorites for this year so far. I can't remember a sandbox game that I've ever enjoyed so much, -though GTA IV comes close- it's simpl...
