For those who are weird and may actually want to read more of my stuff here are things off the blog I do. Occasionally I wrote for Flixist, a rad movie site where, get this, we talked about and reviewed movies. I have long since stopped writing there ( and here ) as I feel like I've said all I have had cooped up in my head without sounding redundant.

In twelve days I will turn thirty-nine. Turn. That word is funny used in this context. As if I will magically age a year's worth of time in the coming days instead of the gradual process that it really is. As I write this, as you read this, both you and I will share this moment of growing old together. I find it curious that as the days pass, the time I invested in frivolous pursuits of vanity are non-existent. I'll never be God's gift to women, though I figured that out a while back ago. My delusions were short-lived in that department. When I buy clothes now, I buy them for whatever need may arise versus whatever new fad or style is current. I find myself subconsciously choosing more laid back, chill music, like the blues, jazz, or slow jams to listen to. I don't actually remember when I stopped watching any kind of music television like MTV or VH1 and the like but I remember that being part of a routine that I had, which I unceremoniously cut off without a thought. I think I came to the conclusion that the music industry nowadays relies too much on a visual ingredient that adds nothing to it aside from making you associate a video to a so called artist. I remember just listening to music with my eyes closed and just enjoying it. Letting it take me somewhere.

The only constants in my life have always been the usual suspects: books, films, my love of collecting chess boards, and of course videogames. I was fourteen years old when Pac- Man debuted in the arcades. Fifteen when Dragon's Lair hit the scene. I remember thinking I died and gone to heaven. That was next-gen to me and the word next-gen didn't even exist in my prepubescent mind back then. That same year The Last Starfighter was in theaters and I remember daydreaming that If I had a high enough score in the arcades, I too may be recruited by some alien race to save them heroically. My imagination was strong and had a kung-fu grip. I remember actually playing Pac-Man on the Atari 2600. Except Pac-Man didn't look so hot at home. He couldn't face the direction he was turning to. Just kept looking at the right of the screen no matter what. Maybe Atari 2600's Pac-Man was imagining he was off somewhere saving an alien race too because he didn't seem into it.

But y'know what? It didn't matter. It was still awesome because I'm playing this sub par version of an actual arcade game that I sunk a Titanic's worth of quarters to... at home. Yeah. More memories flash. NES, SNES, Genesis, Sega CD, Saturn, Jaguar, 3DO, PS1, Dreamcast, to the recent systems of PS2, Xbox, Xbox360, and PS3. I could probably go down the line and tell, at the very least, a story about a game played and associating it with something pivotal that happened to me while growing up. Growing wiser...growing older. A lot of things have changed about me through the years. Many interests have come and gone. Many dislikes have turned to likes and vice versa, yet as I look at my own kids now, playing their own videogames, it makes me smile. That same smile I had when I was playing Pac-Man when I was fourteen. The very same one when I imagined myself the last starfighter, because another batch of future consoles will inadvertently chaperon and comfort them, through their own trials, through their own tribulations, as they once did me.










Forgive my intrusion into your videogame news, previews, reviews and hipster critique of the genre ya'll love so much but I just saw this for the first time and practically soiled myself with excitement. Considering this is the internet and this is like a couple of days old, this may also be considered "ancient", seeing as time online is multiplied by a factor of twenty. Factor in that this is also not what would constitute a "blog" and I have now broken the golden trinity of posting something in our C Blogs. My apologies. But to those who haven't peeped this out yet nor have this tv show in their radar perhaps this trailer will rectify that.



OMG. This looks like the real deal gentlemen. The title to this post couldn't be any truer.

And we're back. Or specifically our glorious post is back on track. Let's just cut to the chase and simply state I've been a bit busy with a few things but all is back on track now. While we're at it one of the things I've been busy with is the phenomenal game called Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Seriously I haven't even read a single Scott Pilgrim comic nor have seen the movie yet and I'm here to tell those who are in the same boat that the game is simply brilliant. A 2D masterpiece that is a loving tribute the oldheads and retro enthusiasts alike. Think River City Ransom to the 5th power and you're almost there. Also this is one of the few games on the PS3 that allows multiple PSN sign ins for local play. Hell yes.

But enough drooling over this game let's get to our rotation of games for tonight and the hosts that are, well hosting them. It begins with...



Game:Blazblue: Continuum Shift Time:8PM EST Host:Jack of Trades

Why not join Dtoiders Jack, Celis 777 with his ridiculous Carl, and Co. for the chaos and insanity that is BlazeBlue CS ? The netcode is brilliant, the fighting engine refined from the 1st game and it's still 2D bliss in motion. I'll see if I can wrangle control of my den to join the ruckus myself. My Haukumen needs practice.

After this is...



Game:Battlefield Bad Company 2 Time:10PM EST Host:Nexus

War never changes. But its participants do. Who will join us tonight in the jungles and snowy landscapes of Battlefield Bad Company 2 ? Haven't yet gotten all the Trophies this game dishes out for its multiplayer component? Haven't witnessed the almighty precision and power that only the Dtoid Company possesses? Then why not join us and show the competition what a real adversary looks like.

Then after that is...



Game:MAG Time:11:30PM EST Host:Elsa & The Dtoid MAG Clan

The ultimate teamwork simulator. Warring PMCs. Surgical strikes. The euphoria of a well implemented plan. Elsa screaming at you to shape up. Its all here folks and there is nothing quite like it on the PS3. Get your ass moving and join us spread the word that Raven isn't synonymous with a bird but a well oiled, deadly squadron whose footsteps usher in the opposition's demise.

And finally we wrap it up with...




Game:SSFIV Time:Midnight EST Host:Me aka K0wb0y-b33b0p on PSN

For the nocturnal crowd there is this. The game of forever. Anybody care to kick my ass on SSFIV? Do you have the reflexes of a cheetah? Would you love nothing more to show me and other Dtoiders how badass you are in this game? Then come on brother. Show us but don't be surprised if we send you packing sucking yo thumb back to yo momma.

There you have it folks. The games and times are set. All that is needed is you. Just leave your PSN ID below and let us know what game you want to roll with us. See you ladies and gents online.










Things that need to be said before we begin. I had quite a few of you want Killzone 2 to be put back on this week because last week they couldn't attend. Easy. Done. Next I wanted to let those MAG players know that DOUBLE XP is still a continuing thing if you pick the "Directive" mode. Also it seems that the MAG devs gave us a little something as in this:

That “something” we’re passing along is also something that many of you have been asking us for with great enthusiasm for months. And so, it is with great pleasure, that I announce that starting today — right this moment in fact — that all maps in our “Sabotage” game mode are going “Faction Neutral!” If you ever wanted to play against the Valor PMC as a member of the competing Raven Industries on a map that belonged to the third faction, SVER, that option is now yours! We’d like to think of it as a way to experience existing content in an all-new way, and we hope you feel the same.

The best part? You don’t have to download a thing to do it. We’ve already set everything up so that all you have to do is log on to the game, select the Sabotage game mode with whatever your PMC of choice may be, and have fun. It’s just that simple.

We hope you enjoy this gift to you as much as we enjoy giving it, and once again, want to thank each and every one of you who have supported MAG in its first half-year. Hopefully, you’ll like what we have in store for the second-half just as much.

Those guys are so nice. Link is here for more info. Now to our lineup of games. It begins with...



[ Game: BlazBlue Host: Jack of all Trades Time: 8PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

One again Old Jacky boy has been itching to play BlazBlue again. It seems he thinks he can dominate all of ya'll with his Tager. Show him the error of his ways and let him know how foolish it is to underestimate the heart of a real champion. I may just dust off this game and activate my cybernetic Hakumen back into action. After all the 27th is but mere days away and the new Continuum Shift will drop then for 39.99. Time to get back into the swing of things.



[ Game: KILLZONE 2 Host: Nexus Time: 9PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

Been awhile since we rolled on this game. Considering the sequel is looming on the horizon I figured now would be a good time to revisit the lands of the Helghast once again. Anybody want to join us on the pistol whipping, sniper cloaking, engineer turret goodness of Killzone 2? Then by all means, grab a gun and lets do this. I think I still need to unlock some things on this.

Then its on to...



[ Game: MAG Host: Dtoid Clan/Elsa Time: 11PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

MAG...its awesome. You should get this game if you don't already have it, like us cool kids do. Why not join Elsa and the Destructoid MAG Clan in the fusion of actual teamwork and strategy that is MAG. If you haven't giving this game a try yet, its time you should. And remember to give your undying support for Raven.

And last but not least...



[ Game: Super Street Fighter IV Host: Me or as I'm known on PSN: k0wb0y-b33b0p Time: Midnight EST till whenever brother! ]

Yeah I don't tire of this game. Neither should you as this is the best fighting game on the planet. Seriously. You know that other game you think is better, yeah.. you're wrong. It's this one. Anybody willing to roll with me on this game? Bring it.

And that's it folks. Don't have a social life of any kind? Did your girlfriend break up with you? Dog or cat die on you? Then step right up and put that silly stuff aside and bask in the merriment that you can only get from our PS3 Friday Night Fights.










I am not going to say anything about that header. I'll just let it speak for itself. On ward to the games and it seems that an old favorite is back in action. Which one is it? Look below as we begin with...

My apologies gentlemen this post is a bit tardy due to REASONS. So lets get the whole sheebango going. Before I do though I want to share a milestone in my gaming adventures. I reached Level 15 recently on MAG! Not to big of a deal but just having a very small leadership role in the game is friggin' awesome I can only imagine what its like calling in an airstrike on the game later on. Enough about my MAG love let's get the show on the road.



[ Game: BlazBlue Host: Jack of all Trades Time: 8PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

Show him the error of his ways and let him know how foolish it is to underestimate the heart of a real champion. I may just dust off this game and activate my cybernetic Hakumen back into action.

After this will be...



[ Game: Transformers: War for Cybertron Host: Liam Time: 9PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

Let's see, there is 4 player co op aplenty, as well as the standard multiplayer matches which will net you precious XP to level up that class you're working on. Why not do it with a fellow Dtoider watching your robotic back? The more the more I always say. Anybody interested in playing this game leave your PSN tag below and like minded people will invite you to their game. I have Liam as a host but I may need additional hosts as well. Autobots...rollout.



[ Game: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Host: Moosehole Time: 9PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

For those not busy transforming there's this.Battlefield Bad Company 2. So the new Co op DLC dropped. You may want to get that and join our ragtag crew for some action. I hear you youngster love action. They'll also be playing the regular modes as well. Haven't played this yet with us online? Man are you missing hearing Takeshi cuss while playing. That alone is entertainment. Come join us soldiers and show the competition what boots are supposed to do...not to walk on but to place them on the neck of those who oppose us.

Then its on to...



[ Game: MAG Host: Dtoid Clan/Elsa Time: 11PM EST till whenever you kiddies stop playing! ]

I just recently purchased this. I just recently got addicted to this game. I just recently have come to the conclusion that Raven is better than all the others because they look cooler than the rest. LOGIC. Why not join Elsa and the Destructoid MAG Clan in the fusion of actual teamwork and strategy that is MAG. If you haven't giving this game a try yet, its time you should. Definitely a time to play this game Ladies & Gents.

And last but not least...
