Sometimes I find myself thinking a lot about the little things in video games, things that other people might overlook completely, yet somehow, they stand out to me as something particularly unique and intriguing. One s...   more



Harvesting the Wrenchfarm: I'm an official Dtoid writer now!

I'm not good at playing things cool or affecting an aloof persona. I can't hide what I like, or what embarrasses me, everything is always written plain as day all over my mug. True to form, I can't hide how excited, ove...   more

Oh wow this is the first time I'm writing in our new C Blog editor. Hey look at how much easier it is now! Do you all like it? Any issues?  Anyway, just wanted to share some new things on what's up behind-the-scenes...   more



B-b-bain calls d-d-dibs on Dedede!

I like to try using as many different characters as I can when playing Smash. I usually rotate through a rather large list of characters, including Lucas, Ness, Diddy Kong, Bowser, Wario, Olimar, Ice Climbers, Jigglypuff...   more



The metal kid stays in the picture: I've got dibs on Megaman!

My Favorite Game: Yo, screw your desert island

I don't think it's really possible to have a “favorite” favorite game, or at least it's not possible for me. I've never been able to answer any of those hypothetical questions where you have to choose one al...   more

Bbain's Jukebox: Final boss

Boss music is often the most thrilling, intense music found on a video game soundtrack. Then there is the final boss music, which takes things to the extreme, highlighting the climactic action of a game. Everyone has their fa...   more



NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window

I watch a lot of YouTube on a regular basis, but since I've busted up my foot and find myself sitting around home all day, my dosage level has skyrocketed to Keith Richards-esq proportions. Sometimes I'll wake up, cue up so...   more

NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window


Just sharing some thoughts

Hi! So there's never a dull moment when you work in the wonderful world of video games. For instance, I just got finished with a move! That Dtoid HQ we had in SF is more or less done. For now at least. Why? Well San Francis...   more



Bbain's Jukebox: Western

The past few weeks, I've been playing Wild Arms. It's a pretty solid fantasy RPG, but what drew me to the game in the first place was its western theme. Much of the game seems to be tenuously related to the western genre at b...   more



God help me, I read some MechWarrior books

I have a slap-slap-kiss-kiss relationship with the Battletech/MechWarrior franchise. MechWarrior Online is a game I keep returning to even though I find it ridiculously underdeveloped and often completely frustrating to pla...   more



Tomb Raider is actually a survival horror game

Confession time: I've only ever played one video game which is considered a part of the survival horror genre, that game being Amnesia. I've never played any Resident Evils, or Silent Hills, or Fatal Frames, or Dead Spaces, o...   more



Bbain's Jukebox: Happiness

Hello everyone! If you've been following my presence here on the site, you've probably noticed that I really enjoy video game soundtracks. I talk about them a lot, and these days I actually tend to listen to video game music ...   more



Burn everything, play in the ashes: What games should learn from Risk: Legacy

I haven't played Risk since high school and I hadn't been interested to try it again since. But then again, regular old Risk never had mech-suits and bear-riding future Vikings did it? Enter Risk: Legacy, which upgrades th...   more



E3 2014: From the perspective of a Shark

Im writing this on my flight down to Los Angeles for E3 right now. Im excited. Its nice knowing that events like this can still make me excited eight years into this career. Though its an even mix of excitement between se...   more



Sweet Spanish booty: and other reasons why Capcom will never go broke

Fuck the police! Anti-authoritarian games I have loved/hated

Watch_Dogs is coming out in a week, and I'm just not that terribly excited. But I should be. Watch_Dogs is the game I would have designed back in high school, back when I tried to paint in my Breakfast Club-esq one-dimen...   more



I give you the greatest video game movie EVAR.

The time has come that we have found the Citizen Kane of video game movies and it is from the small archipelago in southeast Asia, The Philippines (You know, where the bad monster is from in the new Godzilla movie). That m...   more



What's going on behind the scenes

I'm going to focus on E3, as really our inboxes are just flooded with all things E3. Dale and I are splitting duties, he's focused on getting all the appointments in order while I manage and prep the team we have heading down...   more



On Twitch

Why we're shutting down our Twitch efforts as you've known it? Because we couldn't afford it any longer. Since day one, the amount of money we put into Twitch has always been more than we've ever gotten out of it. This was ne...   more



Shifting through the ashes: The last secrets of Dark Souls

In an effort to keep myself sane as I wait for the PC release of Dark Souls 2 (an idea that sounded good in my head a month ago, but has ended in nothing but jealousy and self directed rage since), I've been digging DEEP in...   more

See this people? YOU SEE WHAT I HAVE TO GO THROUGH TO GET YOU EXCLUSIVES?! For context, the guy feeding me is Nigel Lowrie of Devolver Digital and we were goofing off waiting for some of my people to come through and demo...   more



GaymerX brings out the worst in the Dtoid community

The articles that Destructoid has run recently about GaymerX have made me kind of sad and worried about the current community. The articles themselves are great, mind you. The staff is clearly welcoming of people from all w...   more



PRINTOID - Semi-Final Image Needs Your Input!

Titanfall Review: Bury me in my robot

I never got down with Call of Duty, the franchise Respawn's lead designers turned into a juggernaut before their messy public split with Infinity Ward. The heady fumes of dude-bro machismo associated with the series bummed ...   more

Wrench's Indie Game Love Giveaway - Winner
