Making Bayonetta B(ayon)etter

Released last month, Bayonetta, appears to have been a big success for Sega and Platinum Games. This is really good news, especially, for a new IP and it's very likely that a sequel will be developed. Bayonetta, was an excellent game and ...


Massive Alien vs. Predator Developer Q&A

Sega of America has posted a big Q&A with Rebellion on their blog. All of the questions came from the community and it makes for a good read if you have any interest in the game. I'll paste the text into this blog but if you want to visit...


First Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Badnik Revealed

The official Sonic the Hedgehog 4 site has revealed the first enemy that will be in the game. I guess, they're called "Badniks", which, I never knew. Have all the Sonic games called the enemies Badniks? Anyway, the enemy is the Motobug, th...


Sonic the Hedgehog 4: 1996? SNES? Gameplay Video?

Well guess what? We've been fooled. Sega's already gone and created Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and it was for the Super Nintendo! I thought Sega didn't make games for other systems until after the Dreamcast! Everything I know about Sega is wron...


The Introductory Post: One Year Late

So, I've never actually wrote an introductory post. After joining Destructoid last March I didn't even think about doing an introductory post and since then I've just been putting it off feeling it wasn't really necessary. But, now I'm thin...

Indigo Prophecy: Second playthrough and Heavy Rain

Man, I'm on a blogging kick tonight. So, I've recently replayed Indigo Prophecy in preparation for Heavy Rain next month. In my memory it was this amazing cinematic game unlike anything released at the time or since. I can remember how ...


DreamCast: The Sega Fan's Podcast Idea

I've been throwing this idea around in my head for awhile and finally decided to post something about it and see if there's any interest or not. The Concept A weekly or bi-weekly podcast about all things Sega. The outline being a first ...


Goodwill Hunting Episode 3: Contest Edition!

Welcome to Goodwill Hunting: NES Contest Edition! Sorry for not updating recently. Me be busy recently. A recent trip to my local Goodwill has resulted in three NES games being added to my collection. The problem is I don't own an NES an...


Goodwill Hunting Episode 2: Wings of Wor and More!

Goodwill Hunting is a possibly weekly series about my gaming adventures at local Goodwill Stores and thrift stores. Sometimes it will be interesting and sometimes it won't be. Just like Goodwill. I may occasionally hold contests for games...


Nothing is Sacred: Point and Click

Video games are a medium based around control. Take away a player's ability to control something and it is no longer a game and there is no longer a player. Just a viewer. When you take into consideration games that allow the player to con...


Zeno Clash for PC Review

The video game market today is flooded with first person shooters that all blend together into one indiscernible mass of browns, grays, world wars, and space marines. I�ve always had a love for the first person perspective because of its ...


Obscure Games: Illbleed for Sega Dreamcast

The first time I heard about Illbleed was in one of the last issues of the Official Dreamcast Magazine. The story really interested me because of my interest in survival horror at the time and the game looked to be different than a typica...


Space Invaders Ice Cubes!? Nice.

A few weeks ago my fianc� and I were browsing the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art�s gift shop because it�s awesome and I noticed something quite splendid. It was an ice cube tray that makes ice in the shape of the aliens from Space Inv...


Champion Ice Hockey for Sega SC-3000 Review

So far I�ve reviewed three Champion sports games for the Sega SC-3000 and they�ve come to the grand total of 2 points total with 30 points being possible. That�s an average of .667 out of 10 per game. Well, with Champion Ice Hockey that all...


Champion Golf for Sega SC-3000 Review!

Okay, I really hope at least one of these Champion (Insert Sport) games is decent. I�ll tell you right now that Champion Golf isn�t, but I have four left to go so there�s still hope. It seems the developers tried to find the laziest and sim...


Videogames and Me: The Histories - Part 1

I always find it interesting to hear peoples' stories of how they got into video games and different experiences with them growing up. So, I thought I'd take the time to share my tale of growing up with video games. I'd love to hear how oth...


Champion Boxing for Sega SC-3000 Review

Ah, Champion Boxing. It just sounds good, doesn�t it? It�s such a genius move to take the name of a sport and add the word Champion in front of it. I mean, if you were at a store and had to choose between a game named Boxing and a game name...


Champion Baseball for Sega SC-3000 Review

I'm not a huge fan of sports based video games, but I do enjoy a quick fun game from time to time. Really I just believe that each console is fine with just one game for each sport and I can't understand why people pay $60 for a new Madden ...


The Castle for Sega SC-3000 Review!

Ah, The Castle, what a nice minimalist name. It tells you all you need to know and nothing else. The game takes place in a castle. A very large 100 room castle, of which, most people will only see about 10 before they decide there is better...


Super Mario Ball Animation

As I work on the next review, which, will be for The Castle for Sega SC-3000 I felt it would be a good idea to post a little something nice to entertain the readers. What can I post about?, I asked myself several times. And then I reme...


The First Post & Sega SC-3000's
