Cblog recaps of 7/29/15 and BINDING-isms

I managed to play two games this week amidst the apartment hunting craze: I got onto Binding of Isaac and got back into Splatoon. My fiance has been sending me applications all week as she hunts for rooms while I have to st...

Cblogs of 7/27/2015 + Videogame Narrativisims

In the past decade or so, we have seen the importance of videogame narrative be increasingly emphasized. We have seen games celebrated for their narrative oomph, while other ridiculed for purely story related reasons. In the...

Better with Age: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

Warning: fanboying ahead. Yes, I think this rather accessible and maybe even simple ARPG's getting better with age. Not because playing it over and over will give you new insights into the story — let's face it, the sto...

Splatoon is secretly brilliant.

I wonder how much of Splatoon’s success comes from the proliferation of memes.  I mean, it’s been a top image gallery over on Know Your Meme for months now, and the phrase “you’re a kid now, you&...

Cblogs of 7/28/2015 + 50 Degrees Celsius and Counting

It’s hot here. Other than the stifling heat, which is almost visible through the shimmering of the air, we also get unbearable humidity. Sometimes, it feels as if I am swimming on land. What’s worse, it is yet to...

Pixiedust #2: Promotions, Bloggers Wanted & Band of Bloggers.

July has been very strong as front page promotions go, leading to at least a dozen promotions thus far. I've been very happy about the response to the "Bloggers Wanted" prompt this month, "Better with age." I had pitched...

The FFXIV vs. TESO debate, settled once and for all

What do you get when two MMORPGs based on two giant RPG franchises are launched within less than a year of each other? Arguments. Lots and lots of arguments. The ongoing debate over whether Final Fantasy XIV or The Elder Scr...

Cblogs Of 7/26/15 + A Return Of The Salesman Pitch

Hey! You may remember a month or three back when I talked about an exciting way that Call Of Duty could revitalise the series: Through Call Of Duty: Zanzibar. That it would be an exciting real-time depiction of the Anglo-Zan...

Stealthy ninja shorts: quality binding time with Isaac

Binding of Isaac is a big name in the indie domain. I loved watching runs of it on a YouTube I follow, Star (also called Ster). It was hard to believe Rebirth could further refine the formula but not only does it do so with ...

It's never too late to get your cherry con popped.

Cblogs of 7-24-15 + Life Are Strange

I have not had good interactions with mowfuckas (TPB J-Rock inspired) lately. Let me take you through just a couple of instances one by one before we get to recaps: Scene A- One of the best skate spots around here is under ...

A fae falls to the dark side...

Bleh. It's been that kind of week for me. Not only did I get to enjoy the stress and tedium of job interviews and filling out more applications, (because what the fuck is my resume for again?) I had some sort of reaction to a...

I'm back, and I made my own website too!

Have you ever been away from home for a really long time? Do you know that warm fuzzy feeling of seeing old friends and family for a week after being away for months at a time? That's kind of how I feel writing this post. It...

Cblogs of 7/25/2015 + Origins of Lord Spencer and Username-isms

So this is my first attempt at a recap, and its actually 3 days earlier than it should have been. Thus is life in the Reservist shed; we are the paramedics of the recap team. Which is not bad at all, because it allows us to ...

Cblogs of 7/20/15 + Social Media, Schmocial Schmedia

Ah ha! Despite it not being Sunday at all, I'm here to do an intro (or, as they call it in the Destructoid community blog recapping industry, an “ism”). So, let's talk about something fun. Let's talk about social...

Better with age: Konami's legendary, mystical ninja

Once upon a time, people liked Konami. The split between Kojima and Konami looks to be one of the most legendary of all time, going up there with the likes of The Beatles and Britney Spears/Kevin Federline. But we're concern...

Cblogs of 07/23/15 + Equivalent Exchange of Trump Cards

I've been a bit absent from Dtoid this week. In fact it's safe to say I've been a lot absent. Now I'd like to tell you that I had a perfectly valid reason for not being around, and frankly I should have had a valid reason. Bu...

Better with Age: A Journey worth retaking.

Few games can be said to be truly pure. Modern games usually branch out in so many directions with endless grinding, 100's of collectibles and trinkets and millions of pointless side quests. They're so laden down with fl...

Cblog Recaps of 7/22/15 and STRIDERISMS

I'm waiting for Binding of Isaac: Rebirth to download to my New 3DS right. I'm just not a true PC gamer, with access to hundreds of games on Steam and deep discounts yet I can't treat my machine (not a machine, a laptop, so...

On The Witcher 3 and Intelligent Games

“The world doesn’t need a hero.  It needs a professional." You can’t begin to imagine how much that tagline irritates me.  Is it true?  Maybe.  But just hearing it makes me cringe -- lik...

Cblogs of 7/19/15 - New Occupants In The Reservist Shed

  So, after some re-enactment of ancient rituals spoken in a tongue no one really understands with the incomprehensible words replaced with various dick jokes (thanks Dreamweaver, your legacy exists in the Reservist She...

The juggling act

So here I am doing that thing I do after beating a game. I like to call it my "post-game juggling act." It's what happens when I finish a game and can't make up my mind what to play next. I replay a lot of older games and thi...

Cblogs of 7/18/15 - Too much feels for me last week

Well, I've been through quite the emotional trip last week. I missed out on watching for a while, but I'm so glad I caught the last two episodes because "Girl Meets Hurricane" brought back two major characters from the orig...

Late night thoughts: better with too many hats

Life is always a whirlwind, especially when you have so many hats to put on. Can you imagine Andy Dixon having his family man hat, his work hat (I believe he works at a tech company?), and his Destructoid hat. I'd like to im...

Cblogs of 7-17-15 + Promoted Nana-isms and some other stuff

As your new Friday Recapper there should be one thing that gets across ... I think differently than most of the people on this website (at least it seems) I certainly feel that way in comments or wherever. It almost feels l...

Cblogs of 07/14/15 + I'm Feline Good

Recently I acquired one of the best games for the Wii U – Super Mario Bros. 3D World! What can I say about it? It’s great. Some would even say it is purrrrfect. It’s definitely one of the best Mario games I...

Cblogs of 07/16/15 + When does a Nintendo game end?

This was a tough week for gaming, as you're no doubt aware. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to write a blog in Iwata's honor. I just didn't quite know what to say or how to say it. However, it doesn't feel right to move on...
