(NVGR) Why I quit The Dismal Jesters

As some of you may know, I was doing a Podcast with former Dtoid writers Conrad Zimmerman and Jim Sterling called The Dismal Jesters. It was more-or-less a continuation of the version of Podtoid that Jim put together in 201...

Got the BlazBlues

Top Ten things I like Pokemon X/Y

10) †New trainer 2D art. It's a little sterile, and doesn't fit with the rest of the game, but as stand alone art its pretty charming. 9) Some of those Mega Evolutions. They look pretty neat.† 8) Pokemon Amie. It gets borin...

Adorable people is why I keep trying to make things

A lot of people told me right off the bat that I shouldn't make teenage pokemon, that I was doing it wrong and that i was trying too hard or not trying hard enough or that just watching the show gave them a terminal illness. That made me wonder "Am I making the world a worse place by trying to make my idea?" This video proved to me that it was good that I tried to make my idea.

Talk Fast with Anthony Burch (choose your own interview)

We started a new interview series called "Talk Fast" at PAX East this year and it was fun to do. We did one with Anthony Burch of Borderlands 2 and Runner fame, but the sound didn't sound. You can play God by adding your own subtitles and/or talking to is. So do that. Do that now.

NF Magazine (formerly Nintendo Force) now up for subscription

Tony Ponce, a bunch of other great people, and myself are all working on a sequel magazine to Nintendo Power. The first issue cost like $18 or something wild like that. All the profits went to charity, but still...yikes. Th...

My Top games of 2012

Hamza told me to make a list of my favorite games of 2012 if I had any down time. I don't have any down time. I really should be recording more Teenage Pokemon audio, but that's really stressful (but really fun once you get p...

My 100 (or so) favorite Wii exclusives (a work in progress)

Here is a list I've been working on for a few months (off and on). I was hoping to complete it after playing Kiki Trick and Dragon Quest X (as I feel like they'd end up ranking on here somewhere), but I don't know if and wh...

Teenage Pokemon Pre-alpha build

Hey everybody. I'm working on a show about teenagers and Pokemon called Teenage Pokemon. All the art is by Linzb0t. She is great. Here's a rough look at some of the art and a smaaaaaaaall, out of context audio clip of so...

Persona Podcast and a Not-Viral video

Hey wieners. Sorry in advance for the shortblog, but I gotta finish this review of NightSky for the 3DS eShop and I can't let myself get too distracted. What a turd, right? First off, I did a podcast with a guy named Spenc...

My new favorite t-shirt ever

Before there was a Dtoid Show, before there was a Jimquisition, and way before I was ever sexually harassed on a podcast, there was a show called Sundays with Sagat. I came up with the show shortly after Reverend Anthony Bu...

Unlikely Comebacks: A KOFXIV Wishlist

With the much deserved sleeper success of King of Fighters XIII, it seems like any day now the irrepressible horse-throttlers at SNK Playmore will be unsheathing their Emphasis Cudgels and announcing the fourteenth installmen...

Fighting Game Sequelitis in the Age of DLC: A Po-Faced Rant

So I went ahead and bought KOFXIII, even though I have no idea how SNK plans to distribute any follow-up content. Mostly because I want there to be follow-up content. And as seemingly straightforward as paying full retail fo...

Cool story, bro

I was at Gamestop the other day, and the clerks were like "you pre-order Battlefield 3 yet, dawg?" and I was like "OH NO! No way. No-no-no! NO. It is such a sad waste, the way so many game developers today are squandering ...

Intellectual Properties that Deserve Better Games: Iron Man

The Golden Avenger was far and away my favorite superhero back in my comic-reading youth. By day: a hard-drinking millionaire playboy; by the-rest-of-the-time: a garishly-colored, nigh-invulnerable, still hard-drinking robo...

Why I Probably Won't Buy Konami's HD Collections

While normally I love it when a storied game series gets the next-gen anthology treatment, Konamiís upcoming slew of HD compilations has yet to give me the months-long case of consumer blue balls that a gussied up ZoE or Sile...

Intellectual Properties that Deserve Better Games: Akira

We all know the drill: intellectual properties typically make the jump to video games only as the geek-beseeching arm of a vast marketing strategy, cross-promoting some other product on the verge of release. Usually, itís a m...

Hi Destructoid

I waffled over whether to put an exclamation point after that, but since Iím only trying to casually say hello, not greet the living shit out of you during your unsuspecting blog rounds, I didnít use punctuation. Which, admit...

Thanks to everyone who helped me through the burglary!

As some of you may know, my place was broken into shortly after PAX East 2011. My video camera, my PS3, my Wii, my PC, and a over 50 games were stolen. I still haven't recovered all that stuff, and I probably never will, but ...

I'm Trying to Stay Excited About Prototype 2...

I'm one of the few that preferred the original Prototype over Infamous. By a lot, actually. In fact, whenever the debate came up, I would begin to feel like a Twilight Zone protagonist: everyone I know, everyone online, and ...
