Bbain's Jukebox: It's about to get gay in here!

Hello everyone! I'm in kind of a silly mood, so I decided to do another jukebox blog (which Shade was kind enough to keep alive!) with one of the more random themes I've been considering. I was listening to one of these...

Super special announcement from bbain!

Hello everyone! I have some wonderful news to announce. Yesterday, Jordan Devore made me an official member of the Destructoid team! I'm all black and white now! Well, I guess Balrog has always been kinda black and white...

Merry Christmas, Destructoid! My family celebrated Christmas a little early this year, and I got a bunch of really cool gifts and things that I wanted to share with you all. The first two things weren't actually gifts; j...

Bbain's 2014 gaming awards!

Hello everyone! 2014 was a great year for me as far as gaming went. There were so many awesome games I played this year, that I couldn't bring myself to pick only 10 games to talk about. So this year, I decided to forgo ...

Let's keep enhancing the Pokemon series!

I played a ton of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire this week, and it's quickly become my favorite Pokemon game ever! I've been loving the changes they've been making to the Pokemon games with X/Y and OR/AS. They've been adding wa...

Gotta find 'em all! The simple joy of an in-game collection

Sometimes I find myself thinking a lot about the little things in video games, things that other people might overlook completely, yet somehow, they stand out to me as something particularly unique and intriguing. One s...

B-b-bain calls d-d-dibs on Dedede!

I like to try using as many different characters as I can when playing Smash. I usually rotate through a rather large list of characters, including Lucas, Ness, Diddy Kong, Bowser, Wario, Olimar, Ice Climbers, Jigglypuff...

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...

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...

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...

Bbain's Jukebox: Happiness

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...

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...

bbain's 2013 gaming awards

Hello, everyone! There have been so many Best of 2013 blogs already (which is awesome!), and I'd like to throw my own list into the mix, even though it's a little late. I also thought I'd add a few extra awards at the end jus...

PAX Avatar Adoption: Please adopt me!

Every year at PAX, Dtoiders from around the world hang out and play video games together. It's a wonderful experience, but not every Dtoider is able to make it out and join in on the fun. This is where the Destructoid Avatar ...

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...

WINTER: That Day it Snowed

My favorite game(s) of all time is Shenmue (and Shenmue II). Now, I had not played the first game in 10 years but I finally did it last week and I still love it as much as back then. And whaddyaknow!? It takes place in Winter...

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...

Paranormal Activity 64 (Posters of Podtoid)

I got to have some true creative freedom this week since there was no movie pitch, so I took our lovely glitch-filled microphone belonging to Conrad Zimmerman and made a movie of it... Belonging to a played out franchise.

Best Soundtrack of 2012 (Tobbii's Gaming Awards)

I said I wasn't going to do soundtrack of the year. Then I remembered what game I wanted to give soundtrack of the year to. It's a game that only us Europeans can give a 2012 award, how about that?

Best Rerelease/Compilation of 2012 (Tobbii's Gaming Awards)

I'm Free! I'm Free! After a stupidly long day I've done the two videos and the poster I said I was going to do. Great. Now I'm going to bed. Good night people, also, turns out the world didn't end... Who'd have thought huh? Huh? I wonder when the next End of the World craze will be, I'm betting on 2015.

The Wrong Santa (The Return of Posters of Podtoid)

It's back. I felt it was time to bring back the Posters of Podtoid thing I used to do as I have more free time now, starting off with a movie for the holidays. Happy holidays everyone, try not to spend too much money on the Steam sale (I bought 10 games in the first hour... Not good).

Most Overlooked Game of 2012

A day late (doing two today, I was moving into my new place yesterday) but now it's here. I wonder what if could possibly be, hmm... Also, stopping with the banners, fuck 'em.

Biggest Disappointment of 2012 (Tobbii's Gaming Awards 2012)

Another day another award. Today we talk the opposite of Guild Wars 2, a game that I thought would be phenomenal but turned out to not be something worth caring for. It's a shame really. Hope you enjoy the video, and yes, I...

Follow my Final Fantasy Quest!

Hello there! As you might recall my Final Fantasy Quest began about an hour ago, and rather than spamming the Dtoid C-Blog with updates and thoughts, I created a separate blog for how my quest is going and I'll leave the en...
