I read a lot of shonen manga. I know this, you probably know this, everyone knows this. It's my main jam, my bread and butter, my sweet cherry pie. I really dig it. Something that happens a lot in shonen manga is what's ...
Final Fantasy almost prevented my existence. My father was so enamored with the game and the downright addictive qualities it and the whole JRPG genre contained, that he stayed up late at night leveling up his characters and ...
It was the summer of my 6th grade year and I had just gotten home from a local game store where I bought True Crime: Streets of LA. I spent almost all night shooting thugs and running over people because I was completely bl...
Contact is unique to a fault.
Contact is a GBA turned DS game by the rad dudes at Grasshopper Manufacture. The same guys who gave us the excellent Killer 7 and No More Heroes. It was a mostly overlooked action JRPG that c...
Ahhhh violence. What a beautiful thing! It's the thing we as humans find most eye catching and entertaining. Every time a fight breaks out in a school or bar, we immediately run to the location the tussle is taking place an...
I'M NOT LATE, YET AM I?
FINE. LET'S GET TO BLOGGING.
So the Playstation 4.
After much frustration with Sony's shitty stream and Gametrailers' slightly less shitty stream, I ended up sigh...
So there I was. On my computer. I had just cried my eyes out over the end of Telltale's The Walking Dead, and I see someone in a YouTube comment mention this game. A surreal, hilarious flash game.

Fire Emblem: Awakening, along with Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Shin Megami Tensei 4, and Pokemon X/Y, is one of the most anticipated 3DS games this year. The beautiful asian bodybuilding superstars at Nintendo graced us with ...
Hello Destructoid, it's such a great feeling to see your beautiful faces again.
I've recently received a laptop from ol' grammy grams, so obviously the first thing I do is write on my favorite website on planet earth made ...
When people join the lovely community here at Destructoid, usually they introduce themselves and take some time to get accustomed to and make some friends here.
I somehow skipped that step. Whoops.
So yeah, I'm Nicky Aust...
In middle school, I was a huge fan of anime. Like, a HUGE fan. I watched all the cool shonen shows (Dragon Ball Z, Bleach, Naruto, etc.) and obsessed over them for months and months. Since entering high school and approach...
To preface this post, I will take the time to say that I have also reviewed the other games in this series: The NES game with the most heart, Mother, and the quirky SNES journey, Mother 2 / Earthbound.

About Nicky Austin One of us since 11:13 PM on 05.29.2012
I'm Nicky Austin. I like really goddamn stupid, fun games and also really meaningful, emotional games. That's not really specific, but it's cool. I really love One Piece and music and I hosts podcasts about stuff (Full Memory Card, One Piece Book Club, Don't Refrain!, Super Weeb Time, etc.). I'm gonna write some stuff again because I now have more time to write about video games and I just can't stay away from Destructoid, I couldn't if I tried.
