Reflections of an aging gamer.



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.   read

October 31st can't come soon enough.



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.

PS3 Friday Night Fights: The Return



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.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: DOUBLE XP for MAG + KILLZONE 2 Edition



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.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: Nothing's Changed Edition!



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: 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! ]

Wii Owners: May I have your ATTENTION.


Picture Unrelated yet nevertheless Epic due to it being Dtoid's own Mr.Sadistic.

I just recently received Tatsunoko v Capcom as a gift & I noticed something while playing it for a few hours... it kicks major ass. As in I should of gotten this game a looooong time ago. So the first thing I did when my wife pried the controller off my hands because she wanted to watch the telly was immediately go to our award winning forums ( Zodiac Eclipse made me say that ) and peruse our unofficial fighting game tournaments. I couldn't wait to join one for the Wii and get to tusslin' with some Dtoiders on this gem of a game. Except when I clicked on that there link for Unofficial tournaments this is all I saw...



For those whose peepers aren't up to snuff what I noticed was the lack of any Wii on the thread period. I understand there aren't an overflowing games on the Wii that are online enabled but surely Tatsunoko v Capcom should of broken this mold. It would seem not. But I am here to remedy that. If you are a Wii owner who yearns for the bitter competition this game can bring, who wants to show the community how bad ass you are in this game...by all means step up to the plate. On the newly minted Wii Fight Club: Ranbat Version 0.



The premiere unofficial Tatsunoko v Capcom tournament. Any takers? As with all tournaments worth their salt there should be some grand prize of some sort. Alas I have no fancy grand prize but I do have an extra copy of my favorite Wii game I can toss your way.



Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.I'm thinking if you don't own this you suck as a gamer and in life. And if you do well I guess I'll find something else to give you. I'll ransack my closet as I'm quite sure I could feasibly find more stuff to throw in. Some old socks, a razor to get that beard ritual started, more games...who knows. It isn't all that but consider it a minuscule incentive on top of the real prize of the bragging rights of being the best of the best on Tatsunoko v Capcom here in Dtoid. The winner will also get a shiny new Raul Julia Bison Badge in the forums, that alone should compel you to join the ruckus. Also, those elitist fighting game fanatics on the 360 ( & to a smaller degree the PS3 ) wont be there with their HELLAFRAY nonsense.

All interested parties holla at me here and shoot on over to the new Wii Fight Club: Ranbat Version 0 forum thread made ever so easy by clicking right hurr where you will find the rules and such to get this started. That is all. You may now return to your normal C blog sifting for videogamez news routine.   read

Why DESTRUCTOID ROCKS reason # 1,545: Ckarusa Edition.



I think that everybody in our glorious community can pretty much write a blog on a daily basis of why Destructoid as a whole rocks and we would never run out of reasons. That's how rich Destructoid is with it's undeniable love for everybody that frequents here, especially it's community members. I can pretty much testify that I have never seen this amount of joy and love shared among people in any other place. This is yet another example of a member unprovoked being awesome to another here... specifically me.

In our last episode of Why DESTRUCTOID ROCKS, WryGuy bestowed upon my person much free swag. And life for me was good. So what could possibly make me create another post of why Destructoid and its community rocks. Why simple. More generosity. Take a gander at this my fellow colleagues and bathe in the feeling of fellowship.

One thing though, these pictures were taken from my shitty digital camera as my others were inoperable due to my lazy ass not charging their batteries. So if you dig pictures that look like 70's porn stills...you're in luck. Sadly, Vanessa del Rio is absent from them though.

It all started with me checking the mail & getting this.



What's this? I reckon' I better open it up. Fast forward 15 min later... that damn adhesive glue was retarded.



Hmmm...



Hell yeah. I have been wanting to play this game for quite awhile but could never find a copy of it whenever I went to GameStop. I don't care about the lack of the original box or anything like that, I'll leave that to the collectors of the world. I want to play the game! And now I've got it in my grubby hands!



I'm playing this game after I finish this blog but wait there's more. No, you got to be kidding me. Ckarusa this is too much. A brand spanking new copy of...



FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU



I have been meaning to get this game and for whatever reason haven't. If you even remotely know me you know I love fighting games, so this gift is appreciated beyond comprehension and now that I have it a tournament is in question! Look on the forums soon for information.




Ckarusa... you are the MAN.

Know that I didn't even ask for any of this stuff. He just did out of the blue. The surreal thing is that this is indicative as a whole of just about all the Dtoiders here. Giving, selfless, and just plain awesome. Here's another special thank you to Ckarusa. Thanks dude, you're the tits. I'm gonna let you beat me in SSFIV the next time we play. People show him some love. And also a thank you to Destructoid as a whole for having the BEST DAMN COMMUNITY EVER.   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: TRANSFORM EDITION!



It was only a matter of time before this game made our rotation and the time is now. Reclusive Dtoider Liam requested this be on the lineup and I can't refuse anyone's request. I'm nice like that. Also I picked up the game recently and yes folks, this game is a blast to play. Now if only someone would just make an awesome Thundercats videogame and my life would be complete. But this isn't about my fantasies of being Lion-O...this is about Dtoid's premiere night for online shenanigans with one another. So sit back and relax as the line up of games is but a paragraph away. It begins with...

PS3 Friday Night Fights: We're Back Edition!



And just like that, I'm back from my R & R at the beach. I can honestly say that as enjoyable as it was to relax and chill by the ocean, the most enjoyable part for me was coming home and crashing in my own bed. I can never relax in another bed no matter how comfortable, unless of course if its inhabited by nude supermodels. Also I kinda had my fill of seeing people not in the peak of utmost physical condition parading around in revealing bathing suits clearly not meant for them. I'm afraid my eyes and the inner realm of my subconscious have been traumatized.

But enough about me, lets talk of games and the playing of them and what better way to do just that then to play with your fellow Dtoiders on the online shenanigans that we call PS3 Friday Night Fights! Let's get to our rotation as it's been awhile. It begins with...

PS3 Friday Night Fights: SHOCKING OLD SCHOOL EDITION!!



That's right ladies. It's old school time. Time to blast with games from the past ( with maybe a newer game thrown in ). So what are we rocking tonight? Who is that shocked Mexican on the header? Will Takeshi come out and play tonight? Will Elsa once and for all get you whippersnappers to stay off her digital lawn? So many questions but tonight all of these will be answered...if you participate. Let's get to the rotation Ladies and Gents. It begins with...



[ Game: SSF2 HD Turbo Remix Host: Nexus Time: 8pm EST ]

If you're talking OLD SCHOOL then its gotta be have this game right here. No focus attacks, no BS. Just kicks, punches, and a few Hadokens. Think you can survive a match without the game generously giving you Ultras to win? Then meet me outside The Crazy Buffalo, I'll be the dude dressed in white.

After this is the only newer game in our rotation...



[ BattleField Bad Company 2 - Host: Moosehole Time - 9pm to 10PM EST ]

Mossehole once again takes up hosting duties for BBC2. Anybody want to join his squad of Dtoiders as we get our rush & sabotage on? Have I said how awesome this game is yet? No? Then let me tell ya, it's awesome...especially with us!

After this is...



[ KILLZONE 2 - Host: Takeshi Time - 10pm to 11PM EST ]

Takeshi is calling out all you mothers that enlisted in the Killzone Dtoid Clan once again. Its time to get back to those dusty brown and orange shores of K2 and show everybody online that nobody knows what online domination is all about until they stepped in the same battlefield with us. Need some cloaking snipers tonight. As well as engineers. Any takers?

Then after, why not some...



[ Metal Gear Online - Host: Moosehole Time - 11pm to 12PM EST ]

I hope ya'll kept up with your Konami ID's and passwords, cause we be playing this game tonight! Seriously you may want to download the latest patch if you haven't rolled with this game in awhile as it is beefy. While you're at it got to the Konami Website and retrieve your game ID from them too. Konami's online is crazy bonkers. As is this game, but it's still fun. Especially with us for company.

Then we finish the night with none other than...



[ SOCOM bitches!! - Host: Me, k0wb0y-b33b0p as I am known on PSN Time - 12pm to whenever EST ]

Bring it, Men! Join me, k0wb0y-b33b0p and Co to see how we roll. The SOCOM Destructoid Clan is still up and operational ( aching to play this game once again ) and being a member is just a comment placed here away. I will be your host and it's only fitting that Midnight is the time we stomp our Navy Seal boots on the neck of our opposition. Join us , Soldier!!

[ Blogger's Note: As is NOT typical MAG will be a thing that will NOT happen tonight due to our old schooless vibe. Instead WARHAWK might be. Due to teams, and or differing hosts, know that all you have to do is leave your PSN tag below and someone from the Dtoid WARHAWK clan will present you with info and an invitation. Elsa is nice like that. ]   read

PS3 Friday Night Fights: Modnation Edition!!



Its Friday which means this old man is once again posting a PS3 Friday Night Fights post to awaken that dormant sleepy gamer within you and get you to actually play those games you have laying around with other gamers, specifically us. This week's latest addition? A little game called Modnation Racers, which has the undeniable fun factor in spades. Also that there header is a picture grab from our very own Dtoider Solgrim. I have to say I'm very impressed with his creation. Then again I may be biased due to my fanatical obsession of all things Street Fighter. But enough of this, lets get to our rotation.

It begins with..



[ RDR - Host: Nexus Time - 8PM to Whenever EST ]

Red Dead Redemption. Brothers & Sisters, if you haven't played this game yet you are missing out. Time to join our posse and mosey online with us and enjoy the vistas as well as creating your own brand of justice or infamy. Haven't yet tried it with others? You are missing out. Rectify that tonight with your fellow Dtoiders.

After or even during this will be...



[ Modnation Racers - Host: Solgrim Time - 9PM to Whenever EST ]

Yeah this game is a blast to play. Join us with your custom mod and let's see who'll end up first on that there finish line without a rocket lodged in their brains. Seriously once you get the hang of drifting in this game it's butter after that. Give this game a try. Fun will definitely be had!



[ Battle Field Bad Company 2 - Host: SantanaClaus aka Moosehole Time - 10pm to 11PM EST System - PS3 ]

I LOVE this game. This game is kickass. I LOVE shooting people in this game. This game is kickass. I LOVE shooting an RPG into a building full of hiding snipers and leveling the building on them. This game is kickass. Join Moose & Dtoid Company as we bring the pain. Also the new DLC camo & weapons rule.

.And finally for the nocturnal gamers out there...



[ SSFIV - Host: ME. or as I'm known on PSN:k0wb0y-b33b0p - 11PM to 12 EST ]

Bring it baby. My El Fuerte & T.Hawk are ready for some cooking time. I welcome all challengers. That means you reading this. Don't be scared, I don't bite. I'm a beginner too, just like some of you. C'mon and join me and lets have oodles of fun learning this game together. lol

TO EVERYONE: due to the possible overload of awesomeness that is Red Dead Redemption these lobbies may be filled. Leave your PSN/Gamertag below if you are willing to partake and be a stand by host.

Hope to see you Ladies & Gents online.

[ Blogger's Note: As typical MAG will be a thing that will happen. Due to teams, and or differing hosts, know that all you have to do is leave your PSN tag below and someone from the Dtoid MAG clan will present you with info and an invitation. Elsa is nice like that. Hopefully though, she'll be playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 with us tonight as she didn't the last time >:( ]   read
