Time to pull myself away from Monster Hunter

I'm finally sitting down three months later and 400+ hours in to talk about Monster Hunter. I've talked about smaller aspects of my enjoying it but I have yet to really sit down and really talk shop on Monster Hunter, like o...

Hadouken To Win (Short Blog)

Fighting games are a curious beast in the modern era. Since the internet is prevalent on every gaming platform, you'd think developers would be adding characters left and right into their titles. We haven't really seen ...

REFUND ME!

Valve recently decided to implement a refund policy on Steam. For a year or so, this was the only thing EA had a leg up on Valve. Their platform, Origin, allowed a refund for any reason within 48 hours. Even the website...

My E3 2015 Wishful Predictions

E3 is only a week away. We’ve already seen some official announcements, as well as some leaks. I’ve been thinking a lot of what I’d like to see, and figured I’d write a list. This list, however, ...

Frame of Reference

So Hatred is out and nobody really seems to care. This game sparked a huge controversy over it's content and now the game is old news. Having seen some footage of the final build, even I am left wondering what the big d...

Nostalgia Goggles

Nostalgia can be a cruel beast. We often have fond memories of games, movies or places from childhood that just do not hold up in the present. This doesn't mean that those memories are worthless, just that our perceptio...

Salutations! This is Strider, AMA

There's a lot of stuff I want to do with what little time I have. I tell myself I'll put my thoughts down and proper and go in-depth with my experiences on Monster Hunter, from low rank to G rank. But that's not happeni...

Forsaken Age

I don't know quite how to feel about Broken Age. I want to scream and yell and claim it is a terrible experience, but I don't overtly hate the game. I had a partial bit of responsibility for bringing it to life (funding...

Next-Gen is Finally Here!

The Linearity of Time

Game developers have made great strides in providing gamers with multiple choices for a game's story. This has resulted in many critics and players labeling games as "non-linear" or "open-world." They all allow you to t...

The last Nintendo FNF for 03/20/15 - Dampé the gravedigger

Time to pull back the curtain: nobody can get into the Nintendo FNF account. Well, I suppose one person can but there are no copies to his keys. So, did I get you with that clickbait headline? This is the last time...

Nintendo FNF March 13 - Still in it to win it

Have you wondered why I'm doing this on my own personal blog? Where Smurfee is? How they get the little M's on the M&M's? I'm sure those questions will be answered in all due time. But for now, wouldn't you like to ...

Strider's favorite ninjas

In case you haven't realized it, I'm a fan of ninjas. While samurai abide by a code of honor, wearing either sweet plate armor or comfy pajamas, and use really cool swords, ninja are better described as spies or mercena...

The Convention that Changed it All

Absence makes the heart grow fonder; while the origin of this quote is unknown, the impact of those words can be profound. Removing yourself from your favorite place can be quite difficult. Sometimes the change is neede...

Nintendo FNF March 6th: The inside story

By now you know the drill. You should know the drill. Why aren't there drills in the Mario & Luigi series? Also, is Partner's in Time rare? I'll buy it next time I see a copy. But Dream Team just arrived, ahead of s...

Strider's top 9 Dtoid rivalries

Well, its time to compose my top 9 Dtoiders. And I have to stick with it because I have integrity. And without integrity, what could I be trusted with? But not to worry though because I have a clear cut list of choices....

Nintendo FNF Feb 27th: land of the dead

Land of the dead isn't describing Nintendo FNF (though it wouldn't be inaccurate). I just reach Ikana Canyon in Majora's Mask 3D and it's probably my favorite area. Being the last major area and dungeon site means it's ...

Late night thoughts: a new ninja in town

Dag yo!™ It's been nearly 4 years since I joined Destructoid. Believe it or not, my first cblog here was about Netflix's price hike. We can all guess how things turned out. So not only is Netflix still in busines...

Late night thoughts: Wind Waker Warriors and the Gardevoir experience

Another night for late night thoughts. Dtoid is certainly bustling this past month. I take back what I said describing Dtoid's comic book age phases. The very beginning was probably just Dtoid being small but tight kni...

Cblog Fapcast records Friday evening! Send us burning questions!

It's been a longtime coming, but since I never know when to let go, the Fapcast is coming back for an episode. And while I loathe to do short form posts, I figure you've seen enough call for questions to be used to them...

Hyrule Warriors: celebrations, weapons, and wishes

Believe it or not, I really love Hyrule Warriors. Actually, that's probably not such a stretch seeing the comments for each new DLC release. But Hyrule Warriors has really grown on me as something Nintendo has always be...

Gaming by region: Southern California

Holy cow, I've been meaning to throw this out for months but something always gets in the way, whether it's timely writing prompts (Giving Thanks, Gift of Gaming), big creative itches (finishing Pokemon, GOTY 2014), or ...

Strider's big bonkers GOTY list: 2014 edition

Hey guys! You enjoying those PCs and next-gen consoles? Sorry, current gen consoles. Xbox One and PS4 have been out an entire year and they probably no longer have that new console smell. PC always gets interesting game...

The Gift of Gaming: BIONIC ARM!

A great gift to me is something that qualifies the phrase, "the gift that keeps on giving." And what better gift is there that has more to give then what it initially offers then a good old fashioned fighting game? 2008...

Mega Rayquaza! And 4 other kinds of annoyingly strong Pokemon

Whenever a new legendary is introduced, it's usually assumed that it'll fall into one of two tiers of power: OverUsed, which means its powerful and popular to use in team building, and ubers, which means its too powerfu...
