Better with Age: All about The Boss

[Heads up: I'm spoiling most of the MGS series here. No main series entry is safe.] Solid Snake is said to be the protagonist of the Metal Gear Solid series. It's a notion I've come to question over the years. I first met Sna...

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...

Destructoid site design update: Tiny pretty update coming soon

This one is a few days or weeks away, but I'm working with old-school ModernMethod designer RC on tying up the place a bit. The first thing we're doing is fixing those weird gaps on some mobile and desktop resolutions that c...

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...

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...

My last day with Lucy

Hey guys, I've really been trying to get back to the monthly recap and finish it, but I'm also in a little bit of a sad situation so it may be late tonight or tomorrow when it finally goes live.  I've never had a pet of ...

Hype: Arrivals, departures and Shenmue

So Shenmue III is now a real sequel and no longer an urban legend. On Monday I got so excited I couldn't really think of anything to say in my Sunday recap but "Shenmue III!" so I guess I should do some explaining w...

The Agenda: Twisting the knife

I believe developers should make what they want, which is why I'm ecstatic Konami announced a new 2D Castlevania by Koji Igarashi at E3 2015 this week. After eight long years of waiting after Order of Ecclesia, ...

The complications of Final Fantasy VII's remake

When it comes to remaking games, I think Eiji Aonuma and Shinji Mikami may be masters of revision. These are two guys that were willing to look at their celebrated classics and looked at them critically, considering a fa...

The cards have spoken: Your E3 2015 wishes predicted!

Welcome back to the Velvet Room - a place between mind and matter, between dream and reality. I have called you back here because you left an E3 wish with me and I wanted to let you know what the cards revealed regarding...

E3 Bingo: Where Dreams Come to Die

E3 is upon us once again, and so too are ridiculous predictions. Having exhausted every form of divination available in past years – tarot cards, coins, magic 8 balls – I was left with either the last resort...

Tell me your E3 wishes and let us see what the cards reveal...

Welcome to the Velvat Room. This is a place that exists between mind and matter, between dream and reality.  My, there sure are a lot of you here. This is a momentous occasion indeed! You seem like rather unusual g...

Pixie is evolving! Let it continue?

These last several months have seen a lot of change for me at Destructoid. Pretty much every Sunday since around or just before September 2014 I've been recapping cblogs. Then I got intriuged by the idea of assembling mo...

Quick CSS lesson: using the !important tag to scale your photos

In most cases you'll want your images to be large and squish down automagically to mobile.  Unfortunately HTML is not clever enough to determine what to do with which unless you specifically add a CSS class to each ...

What motivates your creation of a character?

When I'm given the option to create a character in an RPG or hunter game, I tend to go a little overboard, I guess. I'll sit there and spend hours messing with the options - especially if I know that character is going t...

Another ten things about a pixie

I'm still kinda torn on what stuff to write at the moment. I have a lot of ideas and my brain is shooting off in so many directions I can't seem to settle on one draft before starting another one. This either means a lot...

New cblog feature: You can now use a webcam or social media import photos

How to do it: Start a new blog and look for the button "Pick File" under your photo uploader.  The browser should yell at you for security permissions. Look around the pop-up header area to allow it, close the windo...

How to keep the new Cblogs from stretching your images

Our software scales images twice: once up on the upload to optimize the file size, and the other within the HTML to guess the type of screen the person is using.  The first scaling makes your image 620 pixels wide, ...

I'm Pixie The Fairy. You can ask me things and stuff.

Changed my username today. This is Pixielated, which I thought was a clever play on words until I looked around the internet. After some thought about that - and Strider constantly referring to me as "Pixel" - I decided ...

New community blogs feature: a reply to the home page editorial! My hope is that this will encourage more angles about the content we cover and save you some time from flipping back and forth to the home page when blogg...

Community Blogs Update: Redesign in progress

As you can see, we're doing quite a bit of work to our community blogs. We didn't plan to break the blogs but our new home page software just kind of ate everything in its path, so now we're going to make the whole site ...

The Third GLaDOS Song, Newly Discovered

So full disclosure: I do write about games professionally now on other sites. I'm not usually in the habit of pimping my work here. However, I discovered something in my last piece that seems to be a worthwhile chunk of...

Thoughts on Illusory Revelations #FE (SMTxFE)

Okay, so the Illusory Revelations #FE (formerly known as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem) trailer is a thing and everyone that was expecting a fanservice-y crossover event has been left a bit ... "wut." Don't worry, my ...

The Agenda: Republican generosity

The other day I read something that made me drop my glitter and fairy dust - the  governor of Indiana and several other American states are giving away money to the rest of America. They're giving away gaming conven...

Being a Monster Hunter is way better than being a Pokemon Trainer

I’m 70 hours into Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and the game has firmly sunk its hooks, claws, fangs, and Seltas horns into me. After failing to make it past the steep learning curve in the series’ previous ent...

A robot, a snowman and a man in a pink robe said I won a thing.

I said this thing:   And won this thing: There were also things in it, like music for my ears, art for my eyes, a case for my future New 3DS XL and a game that says you should draw the maps if you want to remember ...

The Agenda: The Ring of Pandas

Over the years I've heard much about mythical "panda rings." I have been told game developers hand them out to certain groups of people to get them to buy their games. I imagine this is why you hear about about Bioware g...

The Flame Game

The Inferno Goddess moves in mysterious ways. I am only one of Her priestesses but it as recently come to my attention that a TV show depicted alleged Inferno Goddess worshippers in a negative light. I'll be frank, ...
