Destructoid Discusses! Did someone say emulation?

Hey everyone, this week I'm taking a suggestion from Hamsa and throwing out the dark topic of emulation. We had some good points of view in another thread when we were talking about Chrono Trigger for the SNES, so we figured there's plenty ...

Destructoid Discusses! We talk about SSFII Turbo HD Remix, but fail excellently

Yeah, you should take that title with a huge grain of salt. Because, in an effort to create a new and vaguely recurring article here at the 'toid, I proposed to the staff that we discuss a random topic in our internal emailer and put it out...

Where have all the system sellers gone?

With Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots being released ever so soon, a few of us here at Dtoid started discussing what effect the game's release could have on Sony's big black console. Would it be the the system seller that so many th...

RetroforceGO! Episode 50: That's half of a hundred!

While the more astute listener may notice that today is, in fact, not Monday (the regular release day for RFGO!), he or she will be glad to have endured the extra day wait for this week's episode. Why? Because, and this is also a warning, t...

RetroforceGO! Epsisode 49: Castlevania Mania

Hey everybody! Sorry everything is so late today. Dear ol' Dyson couldn't make the show last night, so I didn't get my usual eight hour head start on exciting sound editing! But they say better late then never, right? Anyway, since I w...

RetroforceGO! Episode 47: Treasure

RetroforceGO! Episode 46: Metal Gear

I know I say this every Monday but, hooray Monday! Not too much has changed over that course of the last week, but then again, not much does in the world of retro. I hear that in the next-gen world, a 360 burned a house down, Nintendo is st...

RetroforceGO! Episode 43: Squaresoft

So does anyone know a good tax attorney? It's getting precariously close to the 15th of April, and lazy Dyson hasn't even bothered to total up his expenses for the year. You can claim Pizza Rolls as a business expense, right? I certainly ho...

RetroforceGO! Episode 41: Part one of the Hardware Series: Controllers

Is it me, or is it St. Patty's day? I'd heard that the church had moved the holiday to another day because of Lent, is this true? If so, as an Irish man this means that we get two days of celebration. Now I don't meant that we as a whole wo...

RetroforceGO! Episode 39: Contra

At least according to Jim's reporting of what Jackie-T thinks of us. It is an astounding presumption that Mr. T purports, but I'm sure he's only talking about the current generation of gamers because there'd be no way that any type of retro...

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
