10 NEW things about mrandydixon (also, ask me anything!)

Hi! It's been a while since I did one of these, so now I'm doing it! You should do it, too :) I've interspersed this blog with some recent pics of my kids to hold your attention, and I won't waste any more time getting ...   more



Do We Need Final Fantasy Anymore?

But first, a preliminary question: how relevant is Final Fantasy Type-0? I admit I haven’t been looking around all that much to gauge responses, but my guess -- or maybe fear -- is that people have chosen to ignor...   more



Occams Thoughts: Mortal Kombat DLC Characters

Mortal Kombat X comes out this week.  The game looks fun in that "Steven Segal direct to video" sort of way and I’m looking forward to experiencing the story later this week the game arrives from Gamefly....   more



I love you all, and that's why I'm retiring from Dtoid

[Pictured: The Dtoid community in 2011. My first PAX.] This is unbelievably hard. [HA! Already with the boner jokes. But really.] In fact, it may be the most difficult decision I've ever come to. But it's been weigh...   more



Occam Thoughts: Cream in My Coffee

It’s a slow day here on Destructoid and in the waking world.  It’s nice when things slow down but sometimes the quiet gets to be a little too much.  So you try to fill the quiet with sound.  So...   more



The Linearity of Time

Game developers have made great strides in providing gamers with multiple choices for a game's story. This has resulted in many critics and players labeling games as "non-linear" or "open-world." They all allow you to t...   more

Occam Thoughts: Prints and Books

Hello.  How have you been?  Well, I hope.  I can feel Spring approaching.  Slowly creeping in, like a tickle in the back of your throat that signifies you are coming down with a cold.  As a creat...   more



Get to know the Destructoid community team!

Dtoid really is the best website on the planet Earth. And like any best thing, a TON of effort goes into making it that way. The writers do a great job working their tight little tooshies off day in and day out to churn...   more



The Definitive List of the Top 10 Nintendo Characters

10. Jimmy T. (WarioWare Series) With still so many big, significant Nintendo characters left, I was debating who to put in this last slot, but ultimately I had to go with my instinct, and my instinct says that the disco...   more



The Convention that Changed it All

Absence makes the heart grow fonder; while the origin of this quote is unknown, the impact of those words can be profound. Removing yourself from your favorite place can be quite difficult. Sometimes the change is neede...   more



Occam Thoughts: 9

9 years.  That’s almost David Bowie’s Five Years twice in a row.  I haven’t been here all 9.  Lordy, I can’t remember how long I’ve been here.  5 years?  4?  Ma...   more



Of Dragon Age and Bunches of Jokers

So not too long ago, I did a post on Xenoblade Chronicles that took a look at its story.  That’s fine and all, but I’m wary of the fact that I didn’t really talk about the gameplay -- which, you k...   more

Leonard Nimoy has died :'(

I'm not normally one to write a eulogy blog -- especially a mostly NVGR one (Seaman notwithstanding) -- but the news of Leonard Nimoy's passing has really hit me hard :'( By all accounts Nimoy w...   more



I’m Really Feeling [Meditations on Science and Warfare]!

So Super Smash Bros. is threatening to make me hate Shulk. Some bad experiences made me realize that he’s one of my least favorite characters to go up against.  I’m not about to claim that he’s go...   more

Occam Thoughts: Statues (image heavy)

Hello everyone.  Monday, Monday to quote the Mamas & the Papas.  As I sit here trying to wipe the sleep from my eyes and clear the cob webs from my brain, I think about the truly important things in life: s...   more

Hello everyone.  How are you today?  Well I hope.  I wanted to talk a bit today about musings.  Musing that occur monthly.  I know January was sorely lacking and that’s on me.  The wak...   more



A Blithering Post on Power and Respect

So if you’re reading this, I’m going to assume that you’ve been using the internet long enough to have heard the phrase “strong female character” -- and if you’ve been on even longer ...   more

Why I Love Pikmin 3

This is usually the part where I go on a multi-paragraph tangent to set up “context”, but let’s not dilly-dally this time.  So, let me say this to start: SPACE IS AWESOME.  There may still be...   more



On DOA and Shortchanged Heroines

Disclaimer: all things considered, you can’t really call me a fan of the Dead or Alive franchise.  The only one I’ve ever really played is DOA4, and while I had plenty of fun with it, I’ve since m...   more

Bill Trinen Made Me His Whore and then Slut-Shamed Me

So I was watching Nintendo Direct this afternoon between classes. While many people were excited for the ‘New’ Nintendo 3DS release date announcement, I’d gotten pretty much over my interest in upgradi...   more

Watch Dogs (feat. Kamen Rider W)

Let me start off with a question: at what point does a topic cease to be relevant? I only ask because time and time again, it feels like I’m jumping on the train late.  By the time I come up with something su...   more

Grethiwha's Things of 2014

Happy New Year, Destructoid people! So, um, 2014 happened. And so naturally I must award a videogame the distinction of being my favourite videogame of 2014. My 2014 game of the year is… Odama!!! Don’t wal...   more

Donkey Kong: The Wayward King

I’m pretty sure that at some point, I promised to do an in-depth look at this game -- which a couple of people apparently wanted, for some reason.  (Masochism, perhaps?)  I didn’t forget, of course...   more

Do We Need Assassin’s Creed Anymore?

So my brother picked up a copy of Assassin’s Creed: Unity on day one, because of course he did.  And he asked me to play through it from start to finish, because of course he did.  And I played it for no...   more



What DOOM could learn from modern shooters

DOOM is timeless. I don't think anyone would argue against that. And yet, while it's one of my absolute all-time favorite games and I'm beyond happy to replay it year after year (which I do), even I can admit ...   more
