Street Fighter V: Headcanon Edition

Not to play armchair tactician, but there’s a part of me that feels like it’s wrong for Daigo “The Beast” Umehara to play anyone but Ryu.  I’m not about to go doubting his skills or anythin...   0

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&...   0

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...   0

What’s the Best-Looking Game You’ve Ever Seen?

There’s been a lot to talk about since this past E3, but you know what’s piqued my interest the most?  Street Fighter 5.  As I’ve said in the past, the only trailers/footage I’ve grown ...   0

On Final Fantasy and Lost Empathy

So does anyone here watch The Middle? I’ve seen some of it, in my quest to fill the hole left by the long-since-finished How I Met Your Mother.  I can’t say I’m in love with The Middle, and I have...   0

Bayonetta 2 is secretly brilliant.

In the first fifteen seconds of the game, you’re treated to a slow-motion shot of Bayonetta that -- of course -- pans straight down to her crotch.  Barely a minute later, you’re commandeering and piloti...   0

Do We Need Final Fantasy Anymore?

But first, a preliminary question: how relevant is Final Fantasy Type-0? I admit I haven’t been looking around all that much to gauge responses, but my guess -- or maybe fear -- is that people have chosen to ignor...   0

Of Dragon Age and Bunches of Jokers

So not too long ago, I did a post on Xenoblade Chronicles that took a look at its story.  That’s fine and all, but I’m wary of the fact that I didn’t really talk about the gameplay -- which, you k...   0

Im Really Feeling [Meditations on Science and Warfare]!

So Super Smash Bros. is threatening to make me hate Shulk. Some bad experiences made me realize that he’s one of my least favorite characters to go up against.  I’m not about to claim that he’s go...   0

A Blithering Post on Power and Respect

So if you’re reading this, I’m going to assume that you’ve been using the internet long enough to have heard the phrase “strong female character” -- and if you’ve been on even longer ...   0

Why I Love Pikmin 3

This is usually the part where I go on a multi-paragraph tangent to set up “context”, but let’s not dilly-dally this time.  So, let me say this to start: SPACE IS AWESOME.  There may still be...   0

On DOA and Shortchanged Heroines

Disclaimer: all things considered, you can’t really call me a fan of the Dead or Alive franchise.  The only one I’ve ever really played is DOA4, and while I had plenty of fun with it, I’ve since m...   0

Watch Dogs (feat. Kamen Rider W)

Let me start off with a question: at what point does a topic cease to be relevant? I only ask because time and time again, it feels like I’m jumping on the train late.  By the time I come up with something su...   0

Donkey Kong: The Wayward King

I’m pretty sure that at some point, I promised to do an in-depth look at this game -- which a couple of people apparently wanted, for some reason.  (Masochism, perhaps?)  I didn’t forget, of course...   0

Do We Need Assassins Creed Anymore?

So my brother picked up a copy of Assassin’s Creed: Unity on day one, because of course he did.  And he asked me to play through it from start to finish, because of course he did.  And I played it for no...   0

Why Do People Love Monster Hunter?

So everyone here knows what “serendipity” means, right?  Pared down to basics, you can think of it as a synonym for “coincidence”.  In my case, though?  It tends to mean that someb...   0

So How Do You Idealize Female Characters?

Beyond: Two Souls (feat. Kamen Rider Fourze)

Devil Survivor 2 is (still) secretly brilliant.

All right, look. Can I be honest with you guys for a second? Sometimes I feel a little iffy about drawing comparisons to other games when Im trying to illustrate a point. Its an effective method, no question, but Im w...   0

Devil Survivor 2 is secretly brilliant.

Don't worry, I'll explain -- as I'm wont to do. Theres a question thats been on my mind for a while now. It should go without saying, but in this day and age were fortunate enough to be a society with full, often-insta...   0

Girly Guys and Manly Girls

Fair warning: this is probably going to be the stupidest post youve ever read. Or if not the stupidest, then the one thatll draw discussion away from the topic and put me under (or on) fire. Or if not that, then at leas...   0

Great things are on the way: I'm now heading up reviews for Destructoid

I'll keep this brief. Destructoid has had a few losses lately. Tony and Jim in particular are dear friends of mine (who I will follow across the ends of the internet), and it's sad to see them go. But make no mistake! They ...   0

Of Batman and Prequels

Once upon a time, I hoped that when Nolans Dark Knight Trilogy came to an end, we could all shut the hell up about Batman for a while. Not forever. Just long enough to give the guy a rest. Long enough for the public con...   0
