I wrote this today as a (late) listening assignment for my Audio Production 1 class. I know I'm not one to blog on here too often but I thought it suitable to provide some words of insight into what I think is a superb video ...
A little more than a year ago in the bleak month of November, I was going through the dull shift of the seasons, growing positively bored with when a spectacular idea struck me like a ton of cinder bricks. I'd been simultaneo...
Well, that's not to say that I've exactly left though... Destructoid as a whole that is! Well, ok, I have some explaining to do.
Hello thar and happy 4th birthday! How are you? It's definite...
To quickly put it out there, I'll let everyone know that this is my very first time I've ever had the opportunity to blog. I've looked around the community and grown rather fond of the unique tone of humor and intellect, so I...
While brainstorming over the possibilities for my first (real) post, I've decided to do something I don't encounter frequently in video games that I usually play, and that's experiencing a semi-genuine sense of fear. While it...
About Dr Robo One of us since 11:58 AM on 12.06.2009
I was a child of the 90's, which basically defines all of the games I grew up on. Stuff like Gauntlet, Duckhunt, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and OoT, Crash Bandicoot, Streets of Rage 2, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2, Goldeneye: 007, Banjo Kazooie, Secret of Mana, Starcraft, Diablo II, Pokemon Red & Blue, you get the idea.
As of the last few years though, with the downfall of how great G4 used to be, I've become extremely out of touch with video games, and that's where Destructoid comes into my life. It's not that I'm not interested in brand spanking new games, it's just that I haven't the money to invest in them. I mean, sure I've gotten a Wii, but now it's just a novelty at best, only useful for SMBB and Mario Kart (I even tried Wii Fit at one point).
However, Destructoid's thrown me back into the loop, and I plan on getting back into gaming like a young child with hours to burn and no cares in the world.
I love D-toid's community and their magnificent writers, mostly the cast of the Pod-toid podcast. That is what I enjoy most about the site though, the honesty that their reviewers and players possess while discussing the most interesting of topics (some of which I didn't even think existed) in games, and I truly value that.
