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



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



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

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



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



Top thirty-seven people cosplaying as 1967 Chevy Impalas.

A basic feature of the human condition is that humans at their basic level have been conditioned to act human. Every once in a while rogue trendsetters break out from the pack in a way that only renegade lone wolves can, dari...   more

My Top 10 Most Wanted Characters for the New Super Smash Bros.!

I freaking love Super Smash Bros. It's one of my favorite fighting game series of all time, but as fun as the games are, the anticipation leading up to each new release is almost just as fun! The speculation! The suspense! Th...   more



The hunt for the missing NES game

Something really cool happened this week, and while it might not be the most exciting story to some, it was still very exciting for me. So, growing up, my family had several gaming consoles that were apparently given to my d...   more

Growing up with a PlayStation

With the PlayStation 4 on the horizon, Sony's consoles are on everyone's minds lately. The recent Twitter hashtag, #playstationmemories, got me thinking about my own time spent with the consoles. I've owned PlayStations 1 thr...   more



WINTER: Superior Driving Skills

For a while now I've credited playing kart racers when I was younger (Super Mario Kart and Crash Team Racing in particular) with making me have good winter driving skills. Sliding around on ice behind the wheel of a go-kart in the Mushroom Kingdom is exactly the same as sliding around on ice behind the wheel of an SUV in Minnesota. Totally. For real.   more



bbain's Top 10 of 2012!

2012 was a pretty great year for gaming, if I may so so. I didn't get around to playing everything I wanted, but the games I did play this year were all fantastic! I hope 2013 can keep up this trend of being awesome! I consid...   more

Guild Wars World/LORE! Primer for GW2

Corduroy's PAX 2012 Adventure, featuring Handy!

Oh my, those are some gorgeous people. Another PAX Prime is in the books and it was an absolutely wonderful time, as expected. After waiting patiently all year, it's a shame that it flew by so fast! Why can't all Dtoider...   more



Cblog Analytics - August 2012

Good god, Destructoid, were you as swamped as I was last month? Four days late on the Analytics. Four days! Unprecedented! Oh man, oh man, did you guys see those GAMES last month? No, I'm not kidding -- I saw VIDEO GAM...   more



PAX 2012 Highlights

Like last year, I finished my PAX weekend having not played quite as many video games as I'd have liked. However, this is mostly because I spent considerable daylight time hanging out with beautiful and awesome people off the...   more
