GTA Lost and Damned Contest Winner!

Extending the contest to yesterday didn't really get me anymore entries, but you know what? It doesn't matter because the entries I got were freaking incredible. The sad part about this post is that I have to tell people they lost, and it...

 
 
 

My Two Cents: Mirror's Edge (PC)

Theres something about games that get any type of hype that lures in the haters. Whether youre Grand Theft Auto IV, Metal Gear Solid 4, or Halo 3, those games just cant get off peoples minds. Perhaps its the expectation, or maybe its...

 
 
 

Reminder: Win GTA IV Lost and the Damned

STEAM DEALS: Greatest Indie Pack

Contest - Lost and The Damned DLC Code

OK, so I've thought long and hard about what I wanted the community to do for this redeemable Lost and the Damned code. In the spirit of the game's controversial cut-scene, to win this code you'll have to send me pictures of your cock. It...

 
 
 

Gametrailer's Resident Evil Restrospective

I'll admit it. I think the stories in the Resident Evil games are throw-away zombie cliche trash, but damn do I not care when it came to the first few games. You know, the ones that actually scared you. Gametrailers.com's video game ret...

 
 
 
 

A Proposition For You, Community (FNF)

I know that sim racers are pretty niche when it comes to this community. I know about 5 people who play Forza 2, and this blog is a call to arms for all who love and play it. I was thinking of hosting some Forza 2 matches for FNF next w...

 
 
 

Puppy Found in Halo 3

I don't care if you hate Halo or not -- if your jaw doesn't drop and the sound "awwww" doesn't come from your mouth then you're a horrible, horrible person. That is the single most adorable thing I've seen all fucking year. I want to snug...

 
 
 

1Up: I loved you, I'll miss you.

Ive come to pay my respects. With all the drama going on in the community - people leaving and others complaining, the news that EGM is gone hit hard. Tyra Tuesday couldnt even cheer me up. It feels as if Ive lost a close friend, or r...

 
 
 
 

My Top Ten Games of '08

10. Space Invaders Extreme (Nintendo DS) I know this is an odd choice to start my top 10 list, but it really was that fun. Its in my DS 90% of the time and Ive yet to grow tired of it. So, why is this game better than Castle Crashers ...

 
 
 

Home Impressions

So, the Home beta has opened its gates the public (ala gmail), and its exactly what I expected it to be. Its a glorified 3D chatroom used as a vehicle for ads and micro transaction sales for worthless crap. From game themed spaces bein...

Fallout 3 - I'm So Immersed It's Turning Me Away

I dont know about you folks, but I hate being around downers. Depression is like the flu. If Im around people or a location thats dark and down, I become uneasy. Games like Bioshock and Fallout 3 try to push you into a dark and depres...

 
 
 

A Watchmen Game - Will It Work?

Who cares! As many of you may already know, It's being made anyways! According to 1Up, EGM's December cover story will give us a few details, and probably answer a few questions. The most important query will most definitely be, "why the...

 
 
 

Red vs Blue Reconstruction - How Was It?

Rooster Teeths latest installment in the Red vs. Blue series, Red vs. Blue Reconstruction, has come to a close. Well, this season has, and I do like what Ive been shown so far. I was sort of skeptical when I saw the first few XBOX exclu...

 
 
 

Video Games and the Uncanny Valley (Video)

Before I went to bed tonight, I thought I'd post this video I was e-mailed tonight. It was a good break from what I was doing (and stressing about). It lets all you ignorant folk know what the "Uncannny Valley" really is and what it mean...

Tanked Up Review and Why This First Week Fails

Listen, I appreciate everything Destructoid has done for me. I appreciate this contest, but do I have to believe it's fair? I don't think so. Not with this first game, anway Tanked Up is your typical flash game, only this flash game is ...

 
 
 

Graphics In Games - Important?

Gameplay is greater than graphics. As true hardcore gamers we all share this opinion. Sadly, many of us take that sentiment and say things we really don’t mean. We say thinks like, “graphics don’t matter.” I do admit that most comm...

 
 
 

THE FUTURE - NOW!

Halo 3: Recon - What Does This Mean To a Fan?

A few people on this site know that I’m a pretty huge Halo dork. I’ve invested more time in the Halo universe than I have any other game, and I‘m not ashamed. I know it’s blasphemous to enjoy Halo in any way. So how did I take t...

Quantum of Solace: Demo Impressions

I Love You Destructoid - Goodbye

Megaman 9: Admittedly My First 8-Bit Megaman

Console: Playstation 3 To put it lightly, I'm not having much fun. I don't know about you guys, but I've grown up and I don't have the time I used to as a kid to play games. This makes Megaman really frustrating when I've been playing for...

 
 
 

Halo 3: A Look Back

I’ll admit it. I was waiting for this game all night before it’s release. I even stayed up all night wondering if it was worth it to go out and pick it up on it’s midnight release. If it wasn’t for a few complications I probably ...
