Okay, so if you read the other two blogs I posted, you'd know that I've been on a bit of a quest to reclaim all of the games I sold a few years back. I didn't really go into a lot of detail about it, so here's a basic rundown...
I love Destructoid because, while there are the occasional trolls to deal with, I don't have to worry about this:
The underage gamer. The kid who finds joy in mocking older gamers. The kid who uses haxor-L33t speak, even t...
So, slightly inspired by my recent c-blog discussing my video game collection, I went on a mission this weekend: increase the collection. The focus was on PS2 and PS1 games. First stop, my parents' house to pick up some games...
I started my wild and crazy path into the world of gaming back when I was a wee lad of 4. My aunt would babysit me while my parents went to work, and what better place to take a little kid than a bar?
Yes, I said a bar.
So, I figured I'd try my hand at this. Hopefully I didn't yank any characters that others posted about.
First in my 3-man/woman team is Poison Ivy.
I've always had a thing for Poison Ivy. Probably the red hair. Or that he...
The second image that pops up in a Google search for "360 achievement".
We all go in with the best of intentions. Prior to owning a 360, you hear about the achievements you can gain through playing a game and how people bra...
Well, "so far" meaning "I'm only playing the demo". And honestly, I'm not quite sure what to think of Guitar Hero: Metallica.
But before I explain myself, let me give you a quick little background on myself, in regards to Me...
I wanted to like this game. Hell, I even defended it on other gaming sites. And for a while, I did enjoy it and felt that the negative reviews out there were totally missing the mark. I mean, what wasn't to like?
Look at it there. The logo. It's so simple, yet so inviting. You know right away what it is, and all the magic it potentially holds upon your little gamer heart.
But, the damn thing is playing you. Any attempts to access ...
Okay, let's get the major complaint out of the way: yes, Saint's Row 2, like its predecessor, is a blatant rip-off of the Grand Theft Auto series. But is that so wrong, especially with GTA IV's realistic slant? I was happy ...
Atlus, I love you. Really, I do. You know how to treat us gamers right, giving us a ton of freebies with your video games. But...goddammit. Maybe you could've announced this one a little earlier, like back when I dropped $6...
Before I begin, this may contain spoilers, depending on your definition of "spoilers". I've tried to keep things out that would ruin the story.
I've tried to take an unfortunate glitch in the game (the 5-star economy Bowerst...

I've been playing video games for many, many years, starting at the innocent age of 4 (back in 1981). I have no affiliation to any one system; if a console has good games, I'm there. Currently own an NES (yes, it works), Genesis, DS Lite, Gamecube, PS2, Wii, and 360...oh, and a PC, but I rarely play games on it. With well over 300 games for all systems in my collection...pretty sure it's approaching 400 now.
As of late, my 360 has been getting as much play-time as my PS2 had. My poor Wii hasn't been touched in a long time...heh heh. He said "wii".
For my win on Chad's "The Great Retro Quiz! .23: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link":
'Bout time my knowledge of the red-headed step-child of the Zelda universe came in handy. Not counting the CD-i games...they are like the bald, albino street urchins that somehow made it into your house and refuse to leave even after you feed them rat poison.
