About




Hello there Destructoid. I don't game as much as I used to when I was an extremely active member of the website. I've had a 3rd kid as opposed to the 2 I had back when I joined and I've discovered that there are other things to do besides play video games. But I'm still a gamer for life.

Consoles:

Xbox 360

PS3

Wii

3DS

PS Vita

Decent PC for gaming

iPad

My Favorite Games:

I used to have a list here but honestly I've changed my mind quite a bit over the years. I played Chrono Trigger again like I do ever year or 2 and decided that it's dialogue, like many old (and many new) JRPGs, was just too shitty and juvenile for me to actually take seriously anymore. I guess I'm just getting old.

My favorite games in no particular order are Resident Evil 4, God of War, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past,Final Fantasy Tactics, Batman Arkham Asylum, and Chrono Cross. Pretty sure I've forgotten a few games I might remember when asked what my favorite games are in the future. It changes a lot.

This website used to be the best on the internet. Hopefully it will get back to that point, or close, some day soon. I'll probably never fully leave anyway.

According to the American Weekly Chart over at vgchartz.com, Capcom's Resident Evil 6 has managed to move over 800,000 copies in the grand old USA in just one week on the shelves. Look closer and you'll notice that it's sold considerably more than that worldwide. It's gone past 2 million sales globally in a week. I'm going to assume you're asking why you should give a shit and wondering why I'm posting a news story. Or you read the title and you know what the fuck is going down. The point is that you should care about how successful this game is. The amount of copies sold tells Capcom whether or not they should continue down the path they've taken with the series.



Clearly they should keep doing what they're doing. Low Metacritic and GameRanking numbers didn't stop gamers from picking this piece of human fecal matter up at GameStop and elsewhere. I was hoping that the demo and the reviews might scare people away, but apparently the idea of crashing a burning plane into a large city in China and surviving and then meeting a woman who you saved as a child way back in America years ago on your first day on the job which happened to also have zombies and then fighting a monster with her is perfectly feasible and in fact desirable to many people. Also, does Agent Hunnigan ever change her fucking clothes?

Anyway, in the end all I can really do is express my disappointment with you guys. I have no control over the minds and wallets of other people and therefore can only do my best to warn other people against spending their money on what amounts the video game equivalent of The Expendables with zombies and monsters. Yes, it sucks that bad.



Hopefully Capcom will at least continue to give us good portable Resident Evil games in the future. Or perhaps a lot of people who spent their money on this game will be unhappy with their purchase and not buy the next turd sandwich Crapcom craps out of their dirty vagina. One can only hope for a total series reboot that gets back to basics, minus those old camera angles. Just give me RE4 with different characters and settings. Give me a video game, not a deadly serious buddy cop/soldier movie with 3 sets of buddies that sucks cock.

Sometimes people really suck dick. I'm ashamed to be on of those 2 million people this past week who partook in that activity when we bought this abortion of a game.
