My Unique Snowflake Game of the Year Awards

Let's be honest: most of us place a lot of stock in game of the year awards. We all have our favourites, and in good years, like this one, it's tough to narrow it down to those few games. Which is why instead of just doing a single top X li...

 
 
 
 

Nothing is Sacred

For this month's monthly musing, I decided to compare Halo, Gears of War, Killzone 2 and the Legend of Zelda and come to an ultimate conclusion about the nature of things. These games are so strictly defined by their... Okay, that should b...

 
 
 

Three Reasons you NEED to be Carrying a PSP

Back in the PS1/early PS2 eras, I was an unabashed Sony fan. I was a product of the "can-only-afford-one" mentality of superiority; a raging fanboy with little care for the logistics. Later on, I bought my DS before my PSP and my 360 long b...

 
 
 

An ABSOLUTE and UNDENIABLE Ranking of Final Fantasy

As we all know, video games are a medium of absolutes. Subjectivity has no place in a world where Metacritic is the highest authority, nor in one where our every opinion is dictated to us by crowd-appointed journalist-gods. Indeed, in the m...

 
 
 

Stepping Off the Go Train

My relationship with the PSP Go has been a tumultuous one. Since it's announcement, I have gone through several phases: 1. That thing is ugly as sin 2. That thing looks sex 3. I love digital downloads 4. I'm worried about how Sony will han...

 
 
 

PSP Go or No

While we all have a different opinion on Sony's forthcoming PSP Go, we can all agree on one thing: this is a great year for the PSP. Here's a short list of some of great-looking games on PSP and PSN in 2009: * Disgaea 2 * LittleBigPlanet *...

 
 
 

My Plea to Developers: Baby, Give Me the Whole Package

Side note: Arkham Asylum is so awesome, it is the first game I got platinum on. Entertainment shifts with its medium. One of the most significant of these shifts was the move from VHS to DVD. We got a massive increase in picture quality, m...

 
 
 

News!? TF2 Getting Classless Update

The next in the line of updates for TF2 has been revealed, and it's not what I'd think anyone would expect. Soldiers, engineers and demomen will have to wait for their upgrades as the next update shall heretofore be known as: The first d...

 
 
 
 

Backlogs and Broomsticks: Some Rapid-fire Opinions

I like video games. Quite a lot, actually. So much so that I like to keep specific track of the games I own, which I've finished and which I want to play next. And thanks to the wonderful website known as The Backloggery, I've got the perfe...

 
 
 

The Games We Enjoy and the Games We Destroy

There are no pictures in this blog. Honestly, I like writing them but I hate searching for images to put in and caption and whatever. I won't be offended if you don't like reading a wall of text. Kind of a serious title for a blog, don't y...

 
 
 

The Devil Survivor Blog of Choice and Consequence

It's been a while since I blogged... I'm definitely out of practice! Sorry for the janky pacing, but I just had to write about this gem after finishing it, ATLUS is a big thing here on Destructoid. A darling publisher, they release a lot o...

 
 
 
 

For Those About to Die: Dear Enemies

I have a bad habit when it comes to Monthly Musings. I don't read the description topic. I don't read anybody's posts. I just see the title come up a few times. Normally this is enough to give me a few ideas, which I then proceed to ignore ...

 
 
 

For Those About to Die: Dear Friends

I have a bad habit when it comes to Monthly Musings. I don't read the description topic. I don't read anybody's posts. I just see the title come up a few times. Normally this is enough to give me a few ideas, which I then proceed to ignore ...

 
 
 

Failblog is Fail

Today, just for today, I am putting down my Sony flag. Today, I am a Nintendo fanboy. Long live the king. *Edit for less Fail* I expected nothing out of this GDC. It's meant to be a developer's conference, not a place for fan expectatio...

 
 
 

My Son and the Legendary Hero of Zenithia

Apparently Destructoid no longer scales images properly. So I'm sorry for that. As a nineteen year old, I've rarely given consideration to having a family or what that entails. Two years ago I thought I'd never want kids. Now, I'm just com...

 
 
 

Demathcracy: The Truth About Wii vs PS3 vs 360

Do you believe in democracy? Do you believe in mathematics? Do you believe in crazy libertarianist ideals that suggest a right to free will, individual thought and opinion? If you answered yes to one and two but not three, than you are t...

 
 
 
 
 

Playing With Yourself

Outside, the carrion calls: "You fear the sun!" they cry. I close the blinds. Their judgmental jeers are juxtaposed against background that is my existence. I sit in this hovel, confined to a chair a seat and all-encompassing void of prote...

 
 
 

PS3: The Best of Times, the Worst of Times

Thursday, February 12 2009 Dear Diary, Today was maybe just the best day of my life <3. Today PS3 gave me flowers. Well, Flower. Dear GAWD it's gorgeous. After it finally came into my hands I just held it and stared at it for two hou...

 
 
 

From a Newbie, to a Newbie: Street Fighting

I was born in the year 1990. My first console was the Super Nintendo. Yet somehow, perhaps as a mixed result of living in a backwater town and having no other friends who were interested in video games, I never played Street Fighter. I didn...

 
 
 

Someone Needs to Write Me a Blog About...

So I have zero time to write blogs at the moment, mostly due to my time being filled with surmounting MMO and alcohol addiction and long periods spent traveling back home after waking cold and confused in the dark alleyways of Southern Onta...

 
 
 

Flower, and Why You Need It

This is a quick blog. I'm not going to talk about how Flower players or what the game is about; these are both things you can figure out yourself when you buy the game. I'm just posting this to say that it's one of the most emotionally powe...

 
 
 
 

10.5 Things You Didn't Know About thefil

1) I honestly wish I had the time to read all of these. I've done a fairly decent job, reading a few here and there and catching up on all the staff entries. But in the last week I've had all of three hours total of video game time, let alo...

 
 
 

CBlog's Changing Face and Why it Doesn't Have To

I'm not the first person to say this. Stay any place long enough and you'll feel the same way. I feel like expressing it nonetheless. I want to preface this by saying though I've only been posting for eight months or so, I've been a lurker ...

 
 
 

I Am the Thing That Bumps in the Night

I am the thing that bumps in the night. I am that which hides under your beds, in your closets and even in the recesses of your mind. Each one of you thinks yourselves free of me; you exclaim so loudly! 'Look at me!' you shout, 'I am free f...
