Something Missing - A poem by Shel Silverstein

I remember I put on my socks, I remember I put on my shoes. I remember I put on my tie That was painted In beautiful purples and blues. I remember I put on my coat, To look perfectly grand at the dance, Yet I fell there is something I may have forgot---- What is it? What is it?. . .

 


I am the King of Fighters (for now)

Today, via RecordSetter, I have claimed ownership of the world's largest collection of fighting games. Under the rules I have submitted, the record stands at 244. The thing is, I'm pretty sure I don't deserve the record. M...

 


Merry Christmas D-Toid

Yeah, I haven't updated in a damn long time, but one must continue some traditions. I'm hoping that the new year offers me more chances to share with this community. More games, more conventions, more fake holidays and so o...

 


Goodbye MoMo's

(Photo by Tim Static) Last week, gaming lost another great place. It wasn't an arcade. It wasn't a store. In fact, there wasn't anything related to video games as part of the place at all. But many gamers hold it in a high...

 


Giving: My introduction to gaming

Merry Christmas D-Toid

Just something to put out there for now, but later on I'll be posting another blog entry that's a bit more profound... if you can call it that. Anyway, enjoy the holiday.

What I saw (and got) at NerdPow!

Over the weekend here in Columbus was NerdPow!, a dedicated video game convention. The con itself was rather small, taking up only several of the basement rooms at the Hyatt Regency, everything else was taken up by a disturbi...

 


Creating an ideal retro setup.

Perhaps it's the accumulation of a lifetime of gaming. Perhaps it was just an ambition I knew I could achieve. Perhaps I wanted something I could put in the background of a video. Perhaps I wanted to do something with all m...

 


What I got at Corgs-Con

On Saturday, Corgs-Con was held in an empty tax accountant office in the southern side of Columbus. Vendors filled tables with various retro systems, games, and other items. There were piles of cartridges, rare systems, man...

 


Merry Christmas Destructoid

Here's another Nativity scene for you. Not sure what I'll be getting, but I think that a red Wii might be in the works. Hoping for some PC upgrades, but anything's good. Enjoy the holiday.
