A very Animal Crossing engagement story

Two years ago today, I asked a special woman to spend the rest of her life with me. This is the story of it all. I've told it before to people who have asked, but never written it down. It started more than five years ag...

Liight finally out on WiiWare

Finally, a worthwhile WiiWare game that doesn't start with the word(s) "Bit.Trip." Liight debuted way back in September of 2009 as one of the PAX 10 finalists, and it seemed interesting enough for me to call it second best...

Gamejournos hates satire

This is the header image, because it's okay to use misogynistic images to drive hits as long as you condemn the image. Bad image! Bad! Game journalist journalist: n - And individual who writes (professionally?) about comp...

PAX '10 and (miss)Alice(dixon)'s Adventures in Wonderland

Aero Racer review (PSN)

With little fanfare, Aero Racer was released last week as a PS3 Mini. Indeed, so little effort is being put into marketing this bite-sized gem that developer Halfbrick Studios makes no mention of it on its website. This m...

Like videogame music? Check this out!

So tonight I was randomly reminded of this incredible site's existence. It. Effing. Rules. Apparently not a ton of people are aware of this thing, because I tweeted about it and got a bunch of responses filled with gushing. And since more or less all of the music on the site is fantastic, just about everyone was like "it started on Amazing Game X, SO GOOD!" Enjoy, Dtoiders!

PAX East, and a Deadly Game of Cat and Anonymouse

Irish Coffee. It was the perfect Boston drink for PAX East. It's hot, it's sweet, it keeps you alert and awake, and yet it sneakily ushers copious amounts of Jameson into your bloodstream. The Destructoid community function...

Valkyria Chronicles separates the generals from the armchair generals

If I could toot my own horn for just a bit, I'd say that I think I'm pretty good at turn-based strategy games. I spent countless hours playing Civilization III, I recently extolled the virtues of Might & Magic: Clash of He...

Building a Better Game Blog -- Substance

If there's one thing that sets the community blogs of Destructoid apart from any other gaming site to me, it's a demand for excellence in writing. It's part of what drew me to stay, knowing that just participating in the c...

Buy this game: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes

So, an RPG, a turn-based strategy, and a puzzle game walk into a bar. There they meet some spiffy, yet slightly generic manga-lookin' characters. Everybody has a grand old boozy good time, they go home together, and the r...
