How to transcend the 'gamer's plateau'

I will play nearly any video game on any console. As long as I can get a copy, I'm going to make it work. Because there are so many to wade through, I'm starting or stopping games all the time. I'm often faced with...

A Secret to Everybody

I first met Link when I was a young girl, but it wasn’t until a few years ago when our friendship truly began to blossom. In the dim glow of my bedroom, I’d embark on some of the most fantastical journeys wi...

I Write FP Stuff At Destructoid. AMA.

Heard there was a new C-Blog editor in town and had to check it out for myself. How are you all liking it? I knew there was a lot of clamoring in the forums about needing a new one, so with that said, is it working out be...

Colors of Defeat: My Personal Elementary Talent Show Hell [NVGR]

I like to sing, even though I can't do it very well. But apparently my thirteen-year-old self thought I did a stupendous job, as evidenced by this personal narrative written in middle school. I'd like to take a quick break ...

My Pre-E3 Breather Blog, or Breather? I Hardly Knew Her!

Wow. I can't believe it's already time yet again for another E3. It seems like all I've done over the past few months is run around like a cucco with its head cut off. I felt like taking a few moments to sit and reflect...

Brittany's The Tester Audition Song, Or How I Butchered "Snake Eater"

When I was applying to go on The Tester, as referenced in my last blog, I tried to make myself stand out in any way possible. The best way to do that, I thought, was to sing off-key deliberately to avoid copyright issues on...

How I got my mom to game: Adventure Inlay

My dad's a gamer. He's just naturally into them. We bought Mike Tyson's Punch out back in 1988 and I soon learned that I could not stand next to him while he was playing or I'd get a right hook to the face, years before Wiita...

Rip off your dicks: There's a new Community Blogs editing tool

Earlier this week a community member asked why we didn't have a visual editor option. Its 2013, we really should have one. So I dropped what I was doing and installed one. If you prefer slinging your own BBcode you can sti...

Hamza is too busy to be kicked in the face while reading email

Like most guys in the gaming industry I sit at my desk all day, which apparently kills you faster than chicken nuggets, so I try to get up every few minutes and do some exercise. We hung a chin-up bar in the hallway which a...

The Playstation Store sucks balls.

I've stated before that as a father of three, I have levels of patience and tolerance that normal people without children ( or superpowers ) do not possess. Meaning that I usually let things slide off my person, no matter h...
