My last day with Lucy

Hey guys, I've really been trying to get back to the monthly recap and finish it, but I'm also in a little bit of a sad situation so it may be late tonight or tomorrow when it finally goes live.  I've never had a pet of ...

Hype: Arrivals, departures and Shenmue

So Shenmue III is now a real sequel and no longer an urban legend. On Monday I got so excited I couldn't really think of anything to say in my Sunday recap but "Shenmue III!" so I guess I should do some explaining w...

The Agenda: Twisting the knife

I believe developers should make what they want, which is why I'm ecstatic Konami announced a new 2D Castlevania by Koji Igarashi at E3 2015 this week. After eight long years of waiting after Order of Ecclesia, ...

The complications of Final Fantasy VII's remake

When it comes to remaking games, I think Eiji Aonuma and Shinji Mikami may be masters of revision. These are two guys that were willing to look at their celebrated classics and looked at them critically, considering a fa...

Pixie is evolving! Let it continue?

These last several months have seen a lot of change for me at Destructoid. Pretty much every Sunday since around or just before September 2014 I've been recapping cblogs. Then I got intriuged by the idea of assembling mo...

What motivates your creation of a character?

When I'm given the option to create a character in an RPG or hunter game, I tend to go a little overboard, I guess. I'll sit there and spend hours messing with the options - especially if I know that character is going t...

Xbox FNF: Family Medical Leave

  As some of you may know, my wife is pregnant and the baby is due in about a week.  This will be my second child so I'm going to have my hands full for some time.  So until things settle down a bit, this...

Another ten things about a pixie

I'm still kinda torn on what stuff to write at the moment. I have a lot of ideas and my brain is shooting off in so many directions I can't seem to settle on one draft before starting another one. This either means a lot...
May 04 // Pixie The Fairy

I'm Pixie The Fairy. You can ask me things and stuff.

Changed my username today. This is Pixielated, which I thought was a clever play on words until I looked around the internet. After some thought about that - and Strider constantly referring to me as "Pixel" - I decided ...

What It's REALLY Like Making Indie Games

So I'm working on two indie games at once. And I would say that overall it's pretty typical of indie game development. Small team trying to do it all. Refactoring lots of code as we learn about better ways to c...

Xbox FNF: Friday Night Steak

    Over the past few weeks, Chillybilly and I have been getting in a picture battle of us grilling food.  He does hot dogs, I do chicken.  He does pork, I do strip steak.   Bottom line is, every...

Xbox FNF: Playing the Jerk

   I was thinking the other day about some of my favorite villains in gaming. There are many that come to mind such as Albert Wesker, Revolver Ocelot, Handsome Jack and more. Then, I tried to think of playable ...

Thoughts on Illusory Revelations #FE (SMTxFE)

Okay, so the Illusory Revelations #FE (formerly known as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem) trailer is a thing and everyone that was expecting a fanservice-y crossover event has been left a bit ... "wut." Don't worry, my ...

The Agenda: Republican generosity

The other day I read something that made me drop my glitter and fairy dust - the  governor of Indiana and several other American states are giving away money to the rest of America. They're giving away gaming conven...

I Would Never Get My Own Cooking Show

So I was pleasantly surprised at you all actually enjoyed my recent blog post about making fried rice. After all, Dtoid is a gaming focused website, and that instantly conjures up images of people who rather ea...

Xbox FNF: Raging Kombat

Rage Quits, we have all been there on both sides. Honestly, playing a long game where you and your teamates are getting decimated is pretty demorilizing. Then on the flip side, pounding your enemies in the ground and fi...

Never Revealed Game Concepts

While cleaning out my pile of artwork and paperwork, I found some old game concepts that brought back memories. Some of this stuff dates back 20 years, so it's amusing to look back and see what was going through my head...

Xbox FNF: Stabby McFriday

So Friday the 13th, huh?  Yeah.  That's a thing.  And yes, I'm aware the day has nothing to do with the movie but it's still fun to always bring it up.  Between Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm S...

Tossing My Art Salad

When you have a pile of artwork stacked up all over the the place, it starts to look like an art salad. Except it's made from trees, so maybe mulch is a better comparison. It's heavy as hell when you gotta lug boxes of i...

How To Make Wicked Fried Rice

Not to lump all you gamers out there into one big wad, but it seems to be the unfortunate reality that many of you are much better at Cooking Mama than real life cooking. After all, in a day and age where it's ...

Classic clip from Bethesda Softworks' XCar

I use to work on this PC game called XCar: Experimental Racing at Bethesda Softworks about 20 years ago. You can't find much info about the game online because it's before the internet got popular. But I managed to dig u...

I'm not usually one to brag or call out attention about my birthday, however, seeing as my birthday falls on my week and day for the Xbox post y'all are just going to have to deal with it!  So as the title implies,...
Feb 24 // Pixie The Fairy

A robot, a snowman and a man in a pink robe said I won a thing.

I said this thing:   And won this thing: There were also things in it, like music for my ears, art for my eyes, a case for my future New 3DS XL and a game that says you should draw the maps if you want to remember ...

The Agenda: The Ring of Pandas

Over the years I've heard much about mythical "panda rings." I have been told game developers hand them out to certain groups of people to get them to buy their games. I imagine this is why you hear about about Bioware g...
