Dammit, let me be a Road Warrior, Videogames.

I can’t play a lot of open-world games anymore.  It’s nothing to do with the sub-genre as it’s a fine sub-genre in it’s own right.  Still I feel that most open world games don’t e...

A Terrible Fate, A Wonderful Experience: A Blog About Majora's Mask

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is my favorite game in the series.  If I were asked why, I don’t know if I could give a truly cohesive answer to the question, but I’m going to try and explain he...

Starbound, A Personal History

Oh boy, I can already tell this blog’s comments section could get ugly.  It seems like mentioning this game just about anywhere causes drama, flame wars, insults and who knows what other dickery from any poss...

Rekindling with Dragon Age.

Anthony Burch outs Destructoid conflict of interest in BL2 reviews

This is pretty crazy to me. Why aren't journalists disclosing if they are best buds with the people they are reviewing?† I have always trusted Destructoid to be honest and impartial, I hope the team addresses this issue.

How I got my mom to game: Adventure Inlay
