Your Sub-Personas, show them to me!

This a place between mind and matter, between dreams and reality. A place where various sides of one's self, the various masks they harbor, emerge from the sea of the soul. The self suffused in divine love, the self capa...   more

Your Sub-Personas, show them to me!


Twittervania

How am I supposed to feel when someone tells me to "Die" and that "You don't belong in this world?" I think that's kind of harsh phrasing and threatening for less 140 characters and, really, its not by my hand that I was...   more



Operation Corgi Jelly Doughnut

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm sure you've all gotten the memo by now. There are forces out there conspiring and colluding to make us all want to feel bad for enjoying delicious Oreo cookies. Several weeks ago, people started...   more



I call dibs on Margaret, the Velvet Empress!

Last week I called dibs on Pikachu, though I generously let Script usurp my Smash dibs. It was confirmed last week via a Nintendo Direct that Pikachu is now a king, but that's fine - I have other royalty to turn my atten...   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



Yes, this post is about guys in a car. (Warning: Strong roadtrip photos)

Because video games.   more



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

Selecting a character in a fighting game is a very personal thing. There are so many factors to consider – from the aesthetic and personality of a character, the way your playstyle meshes with a character's moves,...   more



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



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



No place in games.

There once was a soldier who had a gruff voice, didn't believe in heroes and infiltrated facilities in cardboard boxes. After saving the world from nuclear annihilation twice and becoming a legend he soon holed himself u...   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

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


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

And now for my real E3 hopes!


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
