May 19 // TheSilkiest

Dammit, let me be a Road Warrior, Videogames.

I can’t play a lot of open-world games anymore.  It’s nothing to do with the sub-genre as it’s a fine sub-genre in it’s own right.  Still I feel that most open world games don’t e...

A Gardevoir for all Seasons

Gardevoir is now awake. Here she is at the lake.    Check out her tiny rake. Did you know she likes to bake? Sometimes girl just wants a steak. Even she could use a break.  Ekans is a purple snake. mmmm mmm delicious cake

Why am I still playing Gears of War 3

Recently starting at around October of last year, I decided to buy another operating Xbox 360 and delve back into a few of the exclusives that made owning the 360 worth it.  I know that up to now the 360’s cra...

Hi! It's been a while since I did one of these, so now I'm doing it! You should do it, too :) I've interspersed this blog with some recent pics of my kids to hold your attention, and I won't waste any more time getting ...

I love you all, and that's why I'm retiring from Dtoid

[Pictured: The Dtoid community in 2011. My first PAX.] This is unbelievably hard. [HA! Already with the boner jokes. But really.] In fact, it may be the most difficult decision I've ever come to. But it's been weigh...

Get to know the Destructoid community team!

Dtoid really is the best website on the planet Earth. And like any best thing, a TON of effort goes into making it that way. The writers do a great job working their tight little tooshies off day in and day out to churn...

Cold William and the Nifty Nine +1

Hey there. Feels like ages since I've posted anything in the c-blogs. Ever since I left the FNF stuff behind I feel like I've kinda disconnected from Destructoid and the community in general.  Weird. Anywho, I'm her...

Leonard Nimoy has died :'(

I'm not normally one to write a eulogy blog -- especially a mostly NVGR one (Seaman notwithstanding) -- but the news of Leonard Nimoy's passing has really hit me hard :'( By all accounts Nimoy w...

The ninth year of Destructoid has dawned, and we've been asked to honor the nine Dtoiders who have inspired us. This is no easy task for me, Dtoid has been an inspiring presence in my life for more than half a deca...

Community playdate manager no more

That’s right, after almost two years of bringing all of you the latest and greatest Team Fortress 2sday and Friday Night Fights posts, I’m calling it quits. This has nothing to do with Destructoid, this is c...

Community podcasters: help us get you more listeners!

Are you a Dtoid community podcaster? If so, this post is for you! Here's the deal: Occams and I are working on a front page thing to promote our fine community podcasters (that's you), but we need a bit of help to get i...

Here's just the tip of what's coming your way, HUGE members

As of last month, I have officially taken over the task of making your HUGE memberships something worth dropping $3/month on again. That started with a fun new "Bonus Levels" monthly newsletter (new issue out tomor...

What DOOM could learn from modern shooters

DOOM is timeless. I don't think anyone would argue against that. And yet, while it's one of my absolute all-time favorite games and I'm beyond happy to replay it year after year (which I do), even I can admit ...

Pouring one out for Prey 2

I guess I should have seen it coming. I mean, all the signs were fucking there. Development hell doesn't even begin to describe what Prey 2 went through these past few years; how could...

Rekindling with Dragon Age.

(Epic-Kx, here.  Changed my name to TheSilkiest because a) I'm trying to use this handle more, and b) see a.) I can admit with an open conscience that I don’t really feel a lot towards earlier titles that were...

Some Jumbled Thoughts Regarding #GamerGate

Disclosure:  I am neither for nor against whatever the hell’s going on in that consumer movement.   I’m going to give both sides the benefit of doubt and assume that their intentions are genuine. &n...

SPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOORRRRRTTTTTTSSS

Having an allegiance to a sports team is stupid. I am stupid for doing it. It's like rooting for Clorox to do well on the stock exchange or something. But I grew up with a love for baseball. Not because my par...

Fangs for the Memories: His name was Jason

Halloween is, without a doubt, my favorite time of the year. Since I can remember, I’ve always been a huge fan of horror movies, and things that were meant to scare you. Maybe it’s because I spent most of my...

Harvesting the Wrenchfarm: I'm an official Dtoid writer now!

I'm not good at playing things cool or affecting an aloof persona. I can't hide what I like, or what embarrasses me, everything is always written plain as day all over my mug. True to form, I can't hide how excited, ove...

The metal kid stays in the picture: I've got dibs on Megaman!

Selecting a character in a fighting game is a very personal thing. There are so many factors to consider – from the aesthetic and personality of a character, the way your playstyle meshes with a character's moves,...

My Favorite Game: Yo, screw your desert island

I don't think it's really possible to have a “favorite” favorite game, or at least it's not possible for me. I've never been able to answer any of those hypothetical questions where you have to choose one al...

Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 The Shakedown

  is the quintessential Steam Sale game. Exactly the kind of blood diamond in the rough that makes Steam's bi-annual extravaganzas so exciting. When launched, I could definitely see the appeal and about bought i...

Hey look, a new Cblog editor

I think? Let's play. Can I make this bold? Italic? Big? Small? How about a picture? Gif? Video? Featured: How long it took to get a new Cblog editor EDIT: There are clearly some problems with spacing, but everything el...

Only one day left to get your avatar adopted for PAX!

PAX Prime 2014 starts tomorrow and I want to take you with me! So far only ChillyBilly has bothered to post an adoption blog; the rest of you need to get your act together if you want to soar on papery wings to Seattle tomo...

I'm not going to PAX, because I suck. Adopt my avatar, please.

Happy Monday! (it's Monday, right?) It's that time of year again, "PAX avatar adoption" time! As usual, I will not be attending PAX this year. I believe this makes.....every year now that I've missed PAX. Yea, that sounds ab...

Going to PAX? Why not take your favorite Dtoider with you?!

So you were one of the lucky few who managed to snag a pass to PAX this year. How exciting! You've got your flights booked, your hotel reserved, and your bags packed (boy, you're really on the ball this year), but there's s...

NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window

I watch a lot of YouTube on a regular basis, but since I've busted up my foot and find myself sitting around home all day, my dosage level has skyrocketed to Keith Richards-esq proportions. Sometimes I'll wake up, cue up so...

A Clever Jaunt Through Time

Super Time Force had been showing at PAX for years, so I knew the premise long before it came out: if you die, you can rewind and "co-op" through the segment up till your death to help succeed the next time. While that statem...

God help me, I read some MechWarrior books

I have a slap-slap-kiss-kiss relationship with the Battletech/MechWarrior franchise. MechWarrior Online is a game I keep returning to even though I find it ridiculously underdeveloped and often completely frustrating to pla...
