While Namco Bandai was regaling the gaming press with their line up of titles yesterday, the announcer said, "What kind of Japanese gaming developer would we be if we didn't have an RPG in development?" As an avid fan of JRPGS fro...

So this game totally slipped past my radar when it was announced last year. At least, I was told that it was announced last year when I was asking about it. It's not terribly surprising that I didn't notice it, though. People...   read

Preview: Food Network: Cooked or Be Cooked

In a perfect world, either Dale North or Johnathan Ross would have been on hand to preview this game. Not because I didn't think it was cool, but because all they ever talk about when we're all together is food. And the Food Network. And sh...

I'm not really much of a Tekken player, but I've always seen the series as Namco's Lamborghini or Ferrari line of cars. With every iteration, nothing much really changes except for the style, and every time a new one comes ou...   read

Preview: Katamari Forever

I tried to put something in the title about the upcoming Katamari Forever being a PlayStation 3 exclusive, and that in in being an exclusive it is making me slooowly come around to considering getting a PS3. But our character...   read

Honestly, the "HOT BASS FISHING ACTION" in the title of this preview has nothing to do with the way that the makers of The Strike are marketing their title. It would also do a disservice to game that is finally brin...   read

Earlier today you may have heard about Hamza's life and death experience in the utter wastleland that is the California desert. Seriously, those ATVs are death traps, but it'll take more than that to kill Destructoid's number-one shark.&nb...

About Dysonone of us since 3:20 AM on 10.30.2006



When not protecting the world from the injustices on all things non-awesome, I have some time to play some games. Not much time, but I do what I can. There's a lot of non-awesome in the world, so myself and the rest of the members of Team Awesome stay quite busy.

Also, I live in San Francisco, so if you're in the area or see me around say hi. I promise I won't bite. I work full-time for two different video game related companies. At one I test the vidja games. At the other I do PR for video games. Eventually I will only be doing the PR gig, so I'll finally have some free time in which I can return to hosting RetroforceGO!

I'd tell you the names of the companies, but I think the one I test for would probably have a hissy fit if their legal department knew there was a Destructoid Associate Editor in their testing department ;)


Random bullshit:

I like pizza rolls
Diet Pepsi is win
I have a yellow Cuban pimp suit



I'm Scorpio
SNES was prolly my most favorite system
I have a cape and wear it often
I do not like banana flavored candy of any kind
I drink beer from brown paper bags
Weezer's El Scorcho pretty much describes me
You can always crash on my couch
I flip a coin like Two-face to make decisions
