No sentence better exemplifies how I felt about Raiden the first time I played Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. After the sinking of the tanker, which is one of the best opening chapters in gaming history, I was waiting with antic...


From Sofware with Love: The Tower

REVIEW: Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap (WiiU)

Despite my claims in a previous review, this month I was simply not done with Zelda, and even though I tried to put it down, once you get stuck into the rhythmic solving of puzzles and spelunking of temples nothing else quite scratche...


REVIEW: Hyrule Warriors (WiiU)

Taking a brief departure from the official canon of The Legend of Zelda, and uncharacteristically taking a risk with one of its most prestigious intellectual properties, in 2014 Nintendo released Hyrule Warriors on the WiiU. I'm reall...

The Nine Best Dtoiders Ever

I am not the easiest person to get to know. I'm a quiet guy raised by quiet people and I'm 75% deaf to boot. It's not the sort of life that produces the gregarious, amiable type. Being friends with me usually requires people who are co...


Happy Anniversary Dtoid: The Magnificent Nine

I've only just celebrated my one year anniversary here at Destructoid; I officially signed up in February 2014 after lurking for a couple of years in awe of the GIF bombs in the front page articles comments' sections. It's been good so...


I Love Shadow of the Colossus!

[This is an essay I wrote a while ago for my college work. It wasn't for a formal assignment, but instead just a practice piece that we were allowed to pick any topic for. So I decided to gush about SotC. I've been sitting on it for ag...

The Gift of Gaming: BIONIC ARM!

Giving Thanks: Sega Genesis Collection

Fangs for the Memories: Slender

It was surprisingly difficult to choose a top horror game, or horror moment. The first that came to mind was ‘of course, Fatal Frame!’. The game is generally very eerie; the ambience is effective; of a breeze drifting throu...


Giving Thanks: The Miiverse

Though touted as one of the greater evolutions in gaming, I’ve never been a huge proponent of online gaming. Indulging in a game’s world and story is a personal experience for me. The voices and actions of other players, pa...
