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 wai...


I bought my PS3 in 2009, after saving up for it for months. It came bundled with Metal Gear Solid IV, and as soon i finished wiping my tears for Big Boss and Snake, i decided it was time to move on to another game, and t...


The following was a post that I had made on Facebook some time ago. I figured, given that there is a lot of hype and discussion regarding the recently released Bloodborne that this was a worthwhile post and a perfec...


This month sees the release of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin edition on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC; an updated version of the game running in a high definition 1080p resolution (with increased textures...


The ‘Souls games can be unrelenting, brutal and dark; true tests of mental willpower, emotional fortitude and grim resolve. Whilst playing, the majority of the time you’ll likely be inching your way through ...


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...


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 ...


Majora’s Mask ostensibly has a central antagonist, that of the titular mask and its influence over the poor innocent Skull Kid, and supposedly it’s because of this masked villain that you’re gathering ...


Majora March is all about celebrating the minutiae of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in wake of its recent remaster on the Nintendo 3DS. Playing the game with a fresh coat of paint has the cogs in my giant clo...


  Back in 1982 A small group of Atari employees led by DavidCrane create a demo game for the Atari 2600 which they called “The Venetian Blinds technique.” While the game was never released it was a revol...


I was one of the people who liked the original majoras mask. I didn’t buy into the BS about the game not being like OoT and there for being inferior. For a game with only 4 dungeons it is actually a rather large ga...


[This month’s Bloggers Wanted comes from Preposterous Whitey and is all about weird masks and videogame conspiracy theories!] In the wake of the recent re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for th...


I must apologize if this video is too artistic and somewhat creepy, here is another video if you need to cleanse your ears. To be honest I was not looking forward to this post. There is simply more than Nine people ...


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 pe...


I’ve had to do some hard stuff in my life. Preparing for and running a marathon (never doing that again, fucking legs hurt like shit). Pulling 6 all-nighters in a row with about 5 hours of sleep in total before han...


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...


[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 sitti...


I bet you're wondering why that's an image from the old fallout games? For this month's Band of Bloggers assignment -- dedicated to one of my favorite gaming franchises of ever, Fallout -- I ahead of time asked Scholarl...


Although a large number of people across the globe enjoy a flutter, but many understand as much as necessary about what they are doing to win at sports betting such as soccer betting in the long term. In betting, it is ...


A great gift to me is something that qualifies the phrase, "the gift that keeps on giving." And what better gift is there that has more to give then what it initially offers then a good old fashioned fighting game? 2008...


Aahh, the “small talk”. Wonderful, isn't it? This simple tool helps us throw a rope to others so we do not feel alone as we stumble around in the dim light that is our life. We're never quite fully knowing if...


Given that I am not employed by Destructoid, there should be no conflict in this particular piece. I am also not paid by or engage in lude acts with Threaks. Though I do engage in raunchy times with German beer.  T...


My name is Nick and I've been playing games my entire life. In this here blog, I'd like to share what games I consider to be influential on who I am today and probably impacted you too. First up, Sim City. Sim City brou...


Initially I had scrapped an entirely different Giving Thanks post because I got to the point when there had to be a decision made about what could be included and what could not and instead the post got junked. Which suc...


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...


Good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are. So two weeks ago (well, a week ago for me as I'm writing this after my Positive Sexism article), I promised that I would talk about the personal impact Zer...


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 ot...


...My Pa (Grandfather) passed away 13 years ago today. November 16th, 2001. His wife Nana passed away earlier this year after a long fight against Alzheimer's. I was 10 when he passed away... not really concerned with an...


  It's been a while since 2012 has ended, with that being said I think I can post my opinions on the best games that came out last year without anyone being to upset that/if their favorite game wasn't on this list....


Hello, Destructoid readers. I've been putting this off for months, but I think it is time for you guys to learn 10 things about me. 1. I am Bisesxual and Transgender (Male-to-Female) Professor Oak was the first person t...
