Dtoid Sucks Now

Yep, it's another one of those blogs. An old-timer is ranting and raving about things changing and people moving on, blah blah blah. I started coming to Destructoid 6 years ago. That's a long time for anything, let alone s...

E3 2013 thoughts

In a word: disappointed. I went into this E3 rather interested. Please notice that I specifically did not say excited. I watched the conferences by Microsoft, Ubisoft and Sony as well as Nintendo's Direct and Destructoid's v...

Gaming Is More Than Just Playing A Game.

It's been awhile since I tapped my inner soul to write a blog.† A long time since I've let my emotions surface in a way expressed through anything but intense cynicism and social isolation.† But I noticed something after the ...

Microsoft Made The Xbox One Better, And Here's How.

A lot of random, angry adjectives have been thrown at Microsoft lately regarding the Xbox One and it's unusual desire to regulate everything you do on it.† Look, I get the anger, but what we should really be focusing on is th...

Why I'm just saying no to Xbone

Short and sweet:† Microsoft clarified the details regarding the Xbox One's policies regarding used games, DRM, etc. I have to say, it's even worse than I expected. I admit that I'm not a MS fan but I was still interested in t...

Revisiting GameCube: Four Swords Adventures

The stars aligned last week! I had a house full of friends, a GameCube, 4 GBA SPs, 4 gamelink cables and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. I bought this game when it originally released but never reall...

Final Skyward Sword thoughts

So, I finally finished Skyward Sword. To be honest, I cannot recall any other game leading me to such disparate feelings. In fact, Skyward Sword is both the best and worst game in The Legend of Zelda series. Controls At th...

Skyward Sword and the complex feelings it evokes

So, I'm late to the party on Skyward Sword. I traded my Wii in shortly after the release of Warioland: Shake it! due to the lack of interest I had in any upcoming games. I recently purchased a Wii U for a nice price and wan...

Valentine Gaming For The Chronically Miserable.

Learning from the past: Handheld games

There's a lot of talk about the handheld video gaming market. Nintendo and Sony seem to be struggling in the U.S. and the Vita is dying in both Japan and the U.S. Luckily for Sony, the PSP still seems to have a bit of life le...

Revisiting GameCube: Twilight Princess

I'm skipping information on characters and story to avoid spoilers. Spoiler: I love the characters and the ending gave me goosebumps and made me feel sad to leave this world behind. Controversy. If there's one thing video ga...

GameCube component cable review

With my recent decision to revisit the last generation of consoles, I started to read about the mythical GameCube component cables. These cables are expensive, fairly hard to find and only work with pre-2004 systems. Luckil...

I'm a Grumpy, Old Douchebag: A Rant

2012: In review

2012 was an odd year in gaming for me. None of the big releases appealed to me and the one that did, Need for Speed, was a major letdown. On the other hand, I did pick up a ton of older games, bought an import 3DS XL, a domes...
