Mega Man 3 is a dirty, dirty game

Apologies in advance to anyone who can't look at Mega Man 3 the same way after this. In the original Mega Man, the robots are designed to perform industrial tasks, and conveniently double as a world domination task force for Dr. Wily. For ...

 
 
 
 

Hardcore? CORE-HARD.

I was having a discussion with a fellow Dtoider and our conversation came to a halt when I made a confession. Something shocking and disgusting. Something so unseemly and devastating that anyone with a weak stomach might want to turn off ...

 
 
 
 

Chrono Trigger=overrated, Cross is better

Chrono Trigger blows. Go play something like Chrono Cross. Yeah, I don't feel like writing a lot right now, but I'm sick of people trashing Chrono Cross when it's plot is 10x better than Trigger and it has better character development.

 
 
 
 

Why You Should Have Faith in Sonic Generations

Many would agree that Sonic the Hedgehog hasnít had the best track record when it comes to making great games over the years. Segaís mascot has had his fair share of ups and downs over the course of his career and while he still proves t...

 
 
 
 

Chart On: Sequelitis

I started playing through some newer games instead of going through my backlog, and I realized something: Half the games I was playing were sequels. I finished Bioshock 2, which is notable for not being as good as the original. The same ...

 
 
 
 

Hitman Absolution: Worries

The guys at IO Interactive have had a long, long time spent in the gutter the past five years. Their little Mini-Ninjas†game was the only little gem that came out of the studio. I awarded Kane and Lynch 2†my game of the year out of utter ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Dear Brink,

You are half a game. What happened to your single player? What happened to character development and cohesion? Maybe it's asking too much to have every FPS that has a well-rounded multiplayer to have a foundational campaign similar in brea...

 
 
 
 

A Game That Mirrors Destructoid

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I recently bought Shadow of The Colossus (SoTC). At the time I was up to the third Colossi, and I greatly enjoy the game. Now, Iím almost done with the game, and I have mix feelings about it. Mixed be...

 
 
 
 

Would You Open the Door to Other Worlds?

Yesterday I was thinking about what to write today, and as my mind took the less traveled roads, I remembered an old cartoon. Many of us might have seem it, Captain N. It was about a gamer who get sucked trough a vortex and ends in Videol...

 
 
 
 

Of Course Video Games Are Art - Duh!

My Kid Can Bayonette Rush Whoever He Wants

So here's the deal, I was thinking about how I'm gonna deal with my kids today, and aside from deciding to be the lightly teasing, gently cuff you upside the head and call you an idiot but in a way that magically makes you laugh kinda dad,...

It's all about follow through

I've never been the most athletic of men. I live in a country where the national dish is often believed to be "deep-fried anything", my local fish and chip shop had a "if you bring us some food we'll put it in the deep fat frier for you f...

 
 
 
 

Them things what I done today that time.

Today's been interesting. It's been an unproductive, productive day which sounds counter-productive (stop saying productive, gosh!) but let me explain. I started the day at around 9am, watched some TV, ate cereal (I head coco pops they were...

 
 
 
 

Game advertising failures

Greetings and salutations; I come to you in hasted nights lack of sleep, under the hastened rattle of keys clicks and clacks after many unrealized similar rants. What sparked my desire to digitally log about today's subject would be the co...

 
 
 
 

Game Amnesia: Fallout 3

According to my Xbox, I haven't played Fallout 3 in roughly 2 years. During this time I chose to get a Masters degree, and didn't game much. Today, I decided to return to the world of Fallout (does the world have a name? Should I have remem...

 
 
 
 

Saving the MMO: With Imagination!

The metal toe of my moon boots clank ever so quietly against the railing as I land, gyroscopic ankle supporters helping to keep me balanced on the rain slick catwalk. Looking down I survey the area through thick plastic lenses, a super c...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Top 5 Most Overrated Video Game Villains

In every list of video game villains, there are always a few who are placed way too high for reasons that seem to escape understanding. Some I think are just blown out of proportion, some I don't get at all, but let's get right to it, shal...

 
 
 
 

Pay up Sony!

Still another day that the PSN is down seems like I'm in it for the long haul. Right now I'm kind of numb to the whole situation but not completely. Today Sony announced that aside from the welcome back program they are also giving away 2 ...

 
 
 
 

How many log-ins do we need?
