It's been awhile Destructoid. I'm sorry, my comedy juices dried up. But I think I'm starting to get them back. Going and playing old NES games helps me think of things. So hopefully I'll post more art from now on. But enough of this talking crap. Here's some drawings!


So it seems as though Q*bert and Princess Peach got it on. So the Stork left them a little gift. Awww.


One eyed purple things meet at last. One of them looks tastier than the other.


Love is blooming before your eyes.... Or, should I say..... BOOMING? *snerfel snerfel* Awful...


Who loves to eat more than these two? Nobody that's who.


Someone looks yummy! Those sexy legs don't help either.


Where oh where could that finger have been?

So there ya go, not the best I've put forth, but a decent attempt. Hopefully more to follow. I have some ideas, we'll see where they take me.
If you're new to my blog, feel free to check out my past posts on the side.
For now, I will go back to eating my Burger King Hashbrowns dipped in A1 sauce, while playing Deadly Premonition. So full of win. YES!

Last weekend I attended a NARP held my Scion of Mogo. And if you saw DeBloo's post, you know it twas awesome.

But I know you don't care about all that, you just want the videos to see if it was all that it was cracked up to be, and if you were there, to experience it again.


Here we have the first evening's toast, done with wine made by Scion himself.


What's the first thing you play at a Dtoid NARP? Gay bar. That's what. Watch as King3vbo and LostCrichton rock it out.


Then they get it right.

The second day Scion made pizzas from scratch for all of us. Personal pizzas. Epic win. You're jealous.
Here's those videos:




That noise you hear in the background is Black Dynamite being amazing and awesome.
Scion had to miss pretty much all the movie. The man was dedicated.


And if you find this boring, you suck. Because the man worked hard. You take time to recognize what he did!


Watch in wonder as Grim makes a pizza!!


And that's how you grill a pizza.

You're not ready for these last two videos. I'm telling you this right now. You think you're ready? You think you can handle it? You can't. Good luck!








See told you that you aren't ready for that flavor!



BAM! (I like how confused they both look in the preview frame of this video, like there's dog crap sitting on the floor)

Hope you enjoyed. I know I did.

Thanks again for a great weekend Scion.
Thanks to everyone for being awesome.
I'm sorry I thrust the world of Black Devil Doll upon you are. But not really.
Thanks Dtoid for having these awesome people on your site!









Attend PAX for the first time with all you lovely Dtoid type people!
I'm so ready to be overwhelmed. Not only by the amount of stuff to see and do, but mostly by how awesome my fellow toid people are going to redoubtably be!

I know Mikey will probably be busy as eff with requests, so if you can't get the best, why not settle for....... Whatever I am?...
I'll be taking requests for art from now until PAX is over, so the more detailed it is, the sooner you probably wanna ask for it. Oh, and since I'm not putting it on Destructoid, I don't feel the need to make it SFW, so make it as NSFW as you want.

To help with costs I'll also have all the art you've seen in this blog with me, I'll be selling it to whoever grabs it up first. Don't worry, I'll keep it cheap, I just gotta eat and drink. So call dibs if you want it.

See you all there, I'll be the guy with the Gentleman dinosaur shirt doing the Mario impression.

I don't need any other video game site. Since I found Destructoid all other sites are dead to me.

Destructoid got me back into art.

Destructoid keeps me deep in the sarcasm I crave.

Destructoid shared the Portland Dtoid group with me, I shall never be the same.

Destructoid gives me my fill of pure hate, and at the same time, lots of sweaty man love on it's podcasts.

No matter how messed up a post I make is , or how disturbing my art is, I know there will be someone on this site that will nod approvingly.



Thank you Destructoid, I'm hot for your body.
(Can we get a full sized Mr. Destructoid body pillow please?)








Alright all, while sitting around this weekend, hoping someone would enter the fnf room so that I could shoot them, I drew some... I had a lot of time... No one is playing COD4 anymore apparently.
So here's some new art, with the next part in the Tingle Murder Mystery.




To go with my Spy drawing , I decided to try another TF2 character that's not my normal style, the Heavy was the one that spilled out of my head.


Luigi's totally growing big right now.


Carrying around a bird all day isn't as fun as you'd think.

And now, the next part of the Tingle Saga:
part 1 part 2


Professor Layton talks to Tingle's fellow whores, and finds out that Tingle was one of the higher priced skanks. He was willing to do that "freaky stuff". He kept all his customers under wraps though.
(sorry for the shoddy quality of my pens, higher quality here.)

Hopefully my brain is working again and hope you all enjoyed.
Also, this is the last week for FNF, GO PLAY FOR CRAPS SAKE, if nothing else, I'd like more people to play COD4 on 360, tourny or not.

Later all








So I was playing through Splosion Man, and I got to thinking about humor in videogames, and why it seems as though funny games are good, and games that try to be funny fail and aren't. Most often suck.

Lets use a recent game and an old game for examples.

Recent funny game: Splosion man.


I've played through the single player and the multiplayer. I enjoyed every moment of it and found it constantly funny, even when I had already seen what was happening.
All of Splosion man's animations, his sounds, the joy he's having from sploding, they all have a distinct humor to them that not many games can pull off.
Splosion Man is funny and it seems effortless that it is. Which is a key to humor. Don't let people know you're trying to be funny, like BMX XXX.

Crappy not funny old game: BMX XXX

Get it?! Pimps and humping pink poodles are funny!
Lord this game is horrible, but I was suckered in with the promise of boobies... The boobies were not worth the price of my soul. The writing was stupid, crass, unfunny, not creative in the slightest. How can you try so hard for humor and not even amuse an at the time teenage boy that just wants boobs?

Granted these games are in different leagues, but I just wanted to use them as examples. I can't think of a bad game that uses humor in a good way, and I can't really think of good games that try to be funny that fail.

And I've been trying to figure out why that is.
Could it be that companies that make good games have more creative people, and those people are naturally funnier?

So I wanted to bring this subject to you all, and maybe see if there is are funny crappy games out there (intentionally funny, I know Two Worlds is funny for all the wrong reasons), or a great game that fails at humor. Why do you think Tim Schafer's games are always fun to play as well as funny as balls. Why not funny and kinda meh to play, is it his oversite? Or other talented people just get sucked in towards him?

Also, I wanted an excuse to post this Video, if you haven't beat Splosion Man yet, just pass it by, but if you have and haven't seen this... Enjoy...
