This sure came a lot later than what I originally planned due to being lazy, especially when I have less to say about this than other subjects.
Most RPGs have some sort of elemental weakness system and some RPGs make it a ma...
So I may sound like yet another hardcore elitist here that acts like people are not allowed to play games if they donít meet a certain skill requirement, but at least hear me out before coming to that conclusion. Originally c...
One of the things I noticed about most RPGs (and the majority of games in general, including Metroidvanias) is that the progress is very linear and hardly open-ended. It seems like ďopen-endedĒ and ďRPGĒ has very little overl...
This is by far my longest c-blog yet and also a bunch of pictures to spice up the lengthy word count.
So, there have been a lot of complaints from a lot of women and even quite a bit of men that many female video game char...
I played a lot of games over the years and out of the many kinds of games I played, RPGs were included. I used to love these games and could play them for hours on end. However, as I got older and less OCD about gaming, I sta...
One of the things that I been hearing about a lot, especially with the existence of the Wii, is that game controllers have became too complex. I heard this argument from non-gamers and gamers alike. Iím also aware that most m...
My chance to jump on this monthly musing before itís too late.
Everyone from non-gamers, little children, media watchdog groups, the animal kingdom, space aliens, and more has heard about the GTA series. As shocking as i...
Gonna admit, this is pretty hard to get all my thoughts clear and organized on this topic without repeating stuff. Moving onÖ
Nowadays, I keep reading about how originality is lacking and how the same shooters, sports games,...
In the video game community, video game reviews are serious business, which could be a combination of the price of new games and the average gamer being a console fanboy who isnít very mature. However, there is another aspect...
First c-blog post, ready, set, go!

I think it should be pretty clear that since I'm here, I'm a gamer and I would love to discuss them. Just like everyone else, I have my opinions about the current state of gaming and how I think it's good in one way and bad in another way. Quite frankly, I think the gaming community in general is pretty awful, like with console fanboys, but Destructoid looks to be different. However, don't expect to find me on the forums since I plan on sticking to the main site and the c-blogs. I should note that I'm very opinionated about stuff. I can easily find flaws in just about anything even if others donít agree with me on them. To an extent, I'm also a perfectionist.
I own the original PS2 model, a Wii, 80GB PS3, Pro model 360, and the original DS and PSP models. Just because I own all of them doesn't mean I value them all equally. I don't own too many games and I rarely buy them. I mostly play games by renting through GameFly since even the really good ones don't keep me playing long enough to justify buying them. I'm not just able to easily replay a game a second time through even if I really enjoyed the first time. I tend to only buy games that I feel will have great replay value, which usually means getting a game on the PC that can be heavily modded.
Iím also rather lonely when it comes to my friend lists on the 360 and PS3. Anyone mind helping out?
The following games I'm looking forward to playing off the top of my head include:
Fallout: New Vegas
Metroid: Other M
Super Mario Galaxy 2
The Elder Scrolls V (although not officially confirmed yet)
Game(s) that Iím playing now:
Left 4 Dead 2 (360)
Red Faction: Guerrilla (360)
Game(s) that I'm currently waiting for GameFly to ship out...
