Occam Thoughts: Podcasts

You Wanna Adopt Me? I'd Adopt Me.

Another year has come and gone.  The hot dog breath of Summer is slowly relenting and giving way to the cool quiet of Fall.  PAX Prime aka the Battle in Seattle aka the Group Hug is happening sta...   more



Goodbye Robin

I just wanted to take a brief moment to say goodbye to a man who taught me how to laugh and the your eccentricities are a strength rather than a weakness. Yesterday, as I'm sure most of you know ...   more



Occam Thoughts: Youtube

So let’s see.  It’s been a while since I wrote one of these. What’s new with me?  I’ve been engaging in all kinds of media lately.    I’ve been playing a silly amount of Final Fantasy IV: A R...   more



So, you want to be my friend...

So... if you met me at a party would you walk up and hand me a picture of lesbian porn?  I don't really care if you're female, or if you're gay, but you might want to introduce yourself first a...   more

10 reasons why Elsa is always right...

If you're a male, you're wrong.  One thing I've learned from gaming media in recent years is that being a woman makes me always right.  Apparently I lack "privilege" even though I'm a middle...   more



Occam Thoughts: Summons

Summons in role playing games.  There is something so wonderfully appealing about calling forth a terrible monster to do your dirty work for you in an RPG. Most of us can recall with fond remembr...   more



How I got my mom to game: Adventure Inlay

My dad's a gamer. He's just naturally into them. We bought Mike Tyson's Punch out back in 1988 and I soon learned that I could not stand next to him while he was playing or I'd get a right hook t...   more



Dtoid GOTY 2013: Chris Carter's picks

 to play videogames. This year, I've played around 270 new games. That's new in 2013, as in, newly released this year, and doesn't include replays or retro titles. So as you can imagine, I had a ...   more



The invisibility of the older woman...

I'm currently 51 and frankly, when I hit 50... shit happened.  I stopped dying my hair only to find out that I no longer had dark brown hair, but instead when the sun hits my locks, you could b...   more



Occam Thoughts: Prints (NVGR)

Art.  I love art.  Art ART ARRRRT!  Fun to say, fun to collect.  So as a creature who relies almost solely on visual memory and who works in a gallery, its no big shock that my collecting procliv...   more



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.   more



Feminist Frequency and Relevance...

So, Anita Sarkeesian has completed her "Damsel in Distress" trilogy.  In the first video, she introduced the trope and gave some historical background to it.  She spoke of how the male rescuer ...   more



Meanwhile at Dtoid HQ: New videos coming your way

You want more video? We're doing more video! Here is just a sneak peek of some of the experiments going on in the lab at Dtoid HQ. We're experimenting with different ways we can cover the news an...   more



Killing Death

We're currently going through a family crisis.  My father-in-law is 80 and has had a brain hemorrhage.  My husband immediately flew out to be with his father and after 10 days, he's finally bac...   more



No means no... but sometimes it has to be said out loud.

This started as a response to excellent blog recapping some recent events at E3, but it grew far too long, and I've never been concise... so I'll put my huge ramble here in my own blog, but plea...   more



It's all about who you're sleeping with...

I've mentioned it before, but I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to video game romances.  I dumped Anomen the wimp in Baldur's Gate 2. In Dragon Age: Origins, dumped me after beco...   more



More questions than answers...

As with many console launches in the past, this year I've come away with more questions than answers.  I'm usually a Sony fangirl, but for the next generation of game consoles, I'm still undeci...   more

I'm all for healthy debate.  Debate is a hallmark of human communication.  Its one of the many ways we learn and grow from one another.  There are debates that are super important, like the de...   more



Rip off your dicks: There's a new Community Blogs editing tool

Earlier this week a community member asked why we didn't have a visual editor option. Its 2013, we really should have one. So I dropped what I was doing and installed one. If you prefer slingi...   more



When you see it you'll fap bricks

In pursuit of and most popular comments, I've redesigned the faps button to be a heart. I've also added an easter egg that appears one in 169 times when the number 16 is selected at random. ...   more



Suggestions for the new Upvote button label?

The people have spoken and I have made it so. Until we come up with something cool I just removed the word like altogether. There's a little thumb icon in its place. We'll come back to ...   more



The sound of many hands fapping...

... is now silenced. Apparently the fap button has been replaced by a generic "like" button and previous fap records have all disappeared. I find I rather miss seeing the fap numbers on some of...   more



Hamza is too busy to be kicked in the face while reading email

http://youtu.be/JLmF4rYsLIQ Like most guys in the gaming industry I sit at my desk all day, which apparently , so I try to get up every few minutes and do some exercise. We hung a chin-up bar in...   more



Deal with it.

Yup, the next Xbox might not be for you. The rumours of an "always on" internet connected next-generation Xbox aren't particularly new, though recent leaks and the distinct lack of any outrigh...   more



I think I'm going to be defiant!

I got to level 157 or so in Defiance during the beta week... so apparently I liked the game. It releases today on my Birthday, April 2nd, and there's a pretty decent chance I'll be getting the...   more
