Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 – The Shakedown

  is the quintessential Steam Sale game. Exactly the kind of blood diamond in the rough that makes Steam's bi-annual extravaganzas so exciting. When launched, I could definitely see the appeal and about bought i...   more

Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 – The Shakedown


Dragon Age: Inquisition's Dorian is fully Freddie Mercury.

There's something I've just been able to unsee in Dragon Age: Inquistion. It's Dorian. He looks like Freddie Mercury. I'm not really even a huge Queen fan, but the likeness is just difficult to ignore. I'm willing to go ...   more

Send me your dreams, I will interpret them!

Okay, so my brain is exhausted from this whole week and somehow I produced a dozen drafts, two blogs, several forum posts and ran around town dropping applications and resumes everywhere because that shiny, new job I had ran ...   more



Journalism and the YJW catspiracy.

If some cat is going to talk to me about journalistic integrity, they're first going to have to tell me the difference between hard news, soft news and why those two distinctions exist. They're going to have to talk about the...   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


Such menial tasks with shovels.

Due to an increase in cash flow from my new job I was recently able to buy a shiny, new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4! It's a pretty spiffy device and a worthy replacement for my Nexus 7. I can run it with a brighter screen for longer...   more

Such menial tasks with shovels.


I live, as Basch fon Rosenburg of Dalmasca yet lives!

Bless me, Destructoid c-blogs, for I have been away. It has been three weeks since my last blog entry. I've been busy job-hunting, house/dogsitting and now I have a new job in the midst of all this that has been running me ra...   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



Epic and iconic!

My game is epic. My game's protagonist? Iconic. I can say these things about it because I'm in the pre-pre-pre-production phase and already see my amazing game's world taking shape. I'm calling my game Iconic Faye's Epic Toro...   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



A tale of two knights and a bard.

Gather 'round, my friends, and lend this humble fae your ears as I tell you a tale of the land of Elenex. 'Tis  the story of a dread knight, a holy knight and a bard full of merry and mirth. Also dragons. Gotta have dragons t...   more



(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...   more



So, you want to be my friend...

So... if you met me at a party would you walk up and hand me a picture of lesbian porn?  I don't really care if you're female, or if you're gay, but you might want to introduce yourself first and say "hi", before giving me ...   more



Final speculation(?): Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem

I talked about this in my last blog a little bit, but with E3 about to start I thought this might be my last chance to scratch my itch and speculate what Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem will be like. While its not like Atlus...   more

Sup Holmes returns today at 4pm with Mike K from Ludum Dare

Hello! Thanks again to everyone that supported the Sup Holmes Kickstarter! We made almost 3 times our initial goal. We totally won.  The show is coming back today with Mike Kasprzak, one of the organizers of the Ludum Dare ...   more



And now for my real E3 hopes!

Well, with my weird E3 dreams written and posted now I can talk about what I really wish/hope to see - or at least things I'm just really looking forward to. Zelda is an obvious one. I'm sure there will be lots of Zelda, rea...   more

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

Capcom has finally laid out the release dates for the latest update/expansion of Street Fighter IV. More importantly, they've more or less finalized the change list, the little tweaks and nudges made to bring the cast in ba...   more



My really strange E3 dreams that don't happen at E3 at all

If you follow my blog at all, by now you likely know I have weird dreams largely comprised of gaming references and celebrity cameos. With E3 just around the corner, my dreams recently started to align with Nintendo, Microsof...   more



Attacking the backlog!

So far my gaming year has been this: Lots of Metroidvania, some NES games and two RPGs. I just finished up The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds last week and I'm now poking at a few unfinished things in there and Bra...   more



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



10 reasons why Elsa is always right...

1.  If you're a male, you're wrong.  One thing I've learned from gaming media in recent years is that being a woman makes me always right.  Apparently I lack "privilege" even though I'm a middle class white woman with a n...   more



Because Reasons: Pixie's Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne Tips.

So Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne has arrived on the US PSN store, which means PS3 can finally play one of the finest and unique RPGs ever made! It also gives me an excuse to talk about the game again! I've written a bit o...   more



Ten things and stuff about a pixie.

Well, this took some doing. I shared some of the biggest things about myself early after I joined Destructoid and I have always been rather open about things, so thinking of ten things I haven't shared yet is tricky. I can tr...   more



Dark Souls II PC's "GeDoSaTo" 1up's FROM Software post release.

I'm Writing this mainly because the Dtoid staff hasn't covered this utility (My tips be damned apparently!) If you don't know who Durante is and play Dark Souls on PC for Christ sake Google the man... If you do know who he i...   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



Even in my kitchen there's an F.O.E!

I was making a very late dinner Tuesday night. I spilled a little Worcestershire sauce and this appeared on my counter: I fucking ran away. It is not there now, but it may still be roaming my apartment, moving only when I move. I'm taking this as a sign I should finally play and finish Etrian Odyssey Untold soon.   more



Setting booty traps! Or why The Goonies II is due a remake.

Well, if there was anyone that could make a sequel to or reboot of a movie from my childhood, Richard Donner is one of the few I'd let get away with it. A new Goonies movie is really happening! God only knows what would ha...   more

Should Castlevania praise the sun?

So in the midst of playing Metroidvanias and RPGs so far this year, I took a small detour into the NES "Classic" Castlevania era. This is to say I played the original Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden last month. And yes, Ninja Ga...   more

Should Castlevania praise the sun?


My favorite Metroidvania moments.

This is a Metroidvania kind of week and I'm having a Metroidvania year thus far. With Super Metroid's 20th anniversary today, Koji Igarashi leaving Konami to likely make more Metroidvanias and even giving a speech on them thi...   more
