About
I love video games (why else would I be here?), and currently I own a DS, Wii, PS2 and a PC. I'm mostly into PC games now, but i did grow up on playing NES, SNES and PS1.

Some of my favorite games:
Final Fantasy VII
MGS 1 and 3
Super Mario 3
Super C
Little Nemo
Link to the Past
Star Fox (SNES)
Metroid II, fusion and Prime 3 (haven't played the other ones really)
Super Dodge ball advance
Guilty Gear series
Anything from Valve
Desert Combat (BF1942 mod)
Oblivion
Quake III
Unreal Tourney
and whole lot more...

More to come as I think of stuff i guess.

Do Not adjust your monitor. You read that right. I LOVE Super Princess Peach. Call me Crazy, but I feel as if this game is better than New Mario Bros. The game itself has a very "cute" look to it, and the entire game world and its characters are vibrant and colorful. Being a sucker for bright and colorful things, I was hooked from the start.

Sure the game looks pretty, but how does it play? The main gameplay mechanic is basically the same thing every Mario platformer that has come before it, but Super Princess Peach has some other unique elements to it. The most noticeable of this are the 4 "vibes." These vibes essentially let you control Peaches emotions and use them to your advantage. This is usually the one of the reasons people hate this game, but there actually not that bad. not every puzzle forces you to use a certain vibe, and if it does, its pretty obvious what has to be done. Another notable aspect of the game is Perry.


Yes, this stupid looking talking umbrella ends up making this game more awesome. With Perry, Peach is able to float, smack around goons for coins, scoop up baddies and then eat them, as well as turn into a submarine. He also has his own side story that takes place during the events of the game.

Not only that, but Super Princess Peach is the first game where Peach is the main character, and she must recuse Luigi and Mario, as well as some Toads along the way. Since Dasie's Awesome Adventure has not been released by Nintendo yet, Super Princess Peach is the next best thing for me.










I just got to this part today, and I honestly LoL'd really fucking hard. If you ever thought brawl was going to suck or didn't care for it, you will have no reason for not buying brawl after seeing this.








No, Not the PS3 game, but the original PS1 game from 1995.



Its a very fun game, and though it may be graphically dated, it is still a blast to play. You can play the game in either a first person cockpit perspective or a third-person view of your ship. It starts to get somewhat challenging towards the later levels, but it still beatable. Also, who doesn't love LOLtastic FMV's from the 90's!








After putting up with my video card artifacting in games unless i ran them on low at 800x600 (in fact, it still would look like this at times)


I finally decided send my video card back to EVGA under their awesome lifetime warranty. After waiting for a week and missing out on FNF TF2 (or at best crying while playing it on my familes crappy computer) I finally get the package with my new video card today. however, Once I opened it, I noticed that I didn't get a 7900GT KO (the card that i had sent in). Instead, they gave me a brand new 8800GTS 320mb card! Talk about awesome. now i can rape face in COd4 and TF2 with the graphics cranked up all the way :).

After seeing coonskin05's game collection, I decided to catalog all my games and see how many I have. And by I, I mean my brother and sister too (my sister only plays The Sims 2 and Rollcoaster Tycoon anyway). Since I'm too lazy to Individually post them here, I made a list on IGN of all my games, much like BrOnXbOmBr21 did. Most of the games are PC, since I never resold any of them, which I did whenever I upgraded consoles. Also, all the games listed are game that I legally own right now, and most of the games from SNES on I have a manual for.

Here's the list on IGN, since I'm too lazy to copy and paste each title here.

For one of my classes at college, i had to do an interview with someone in the media(I'm a communication arts major, which mean i basically study film, TV, and radio stuff for serials. and then get a job in one of those fields.). I decided not to bother trying to get someone at a radio or tv station, since they probably wouldn't care or have the time to answer some questions. so where did i go? to destructoid! I knew most of the editors were either freelance journalists outside of d-toid or worked in the media, so i decided to send out an email to one of them, named Nex since he also hosted and set up the Podtoid podcasts (I plan on going into radio or audio production, so i figured he would be best since he would know about those things.) Literally 10 minutes after I sent him the email asking if I could do an interview with him, he replied and gladly agreed to do it with me. Aside from him being insanely fast at replying to emails, hes also really nice (I heard hes single too...). Now its time for me to tell you what I learnt about nex since my encounter and interview with him (now in cliffnotes format!)

Hes a guy

He always has an email terminal within reach of him. ALWAYS

The Portland Mercury is the hip paper to read these days

Hes not a virgin

he also doesn't have a liver anymore

catholic school made him a drunk in college

D-toid isn't doing internships....yet

he dreams of jumping into a huge pile of gold coins in his cartoon money vault, Scrooge Mcduck style

Nex's sellout price is 50k a year (that ones for you, gamespot!)


anddd thats about it. isn't college fun!
