What I Got This Past Week: Quest Nearing Completion

Okay, so if you read the other two blogs I posted, you'd know that I've been on a bit of a quest to reclaim all of the games I sold a few years back. I didn't really go into a lot of detail about it, so here's a basic rundown...

Why I Love Destructoid (Short and Sweet)

I love Destructoid because, while there are the occasional trolls to deal with, I don't have to worry about this: The underage gamer. The kid who finds joy in mocking older gamers. The kid who uses haxor-L33t speak, even t...

I Went Game Hunting This Weekend (and Monday/Tuesday)

So, slightly inspired by my recent c-blog discussing my video game collection, I went on a mission this weekend: increase the collection. The focus was on PS2 and PS1 games. First stop, my parents' house to pick up some games...

My Video Game Collection, Also Known As "I Have A Problem"

I started my wild and crazy path into the world of gaming back when I was a wee lad of 4. My aunt would babysit me while my parents went to work, and what better place to take a little kid than a bar? Yes, I said a bar. W...

Aborto's Ultimate Tag Team Contest - ZK13 Entry

So, I figured I'd try my hand at this. Hopefully I didn't yank any characters that others posted about. First in my 3-man/woman team is Poison Ivy. I've always had a thing for Poison Ivy. Probably the red hair. Or that he...

Achievement Whoring: What Was Your First 1000/1000?

The second image that pops up in a Google search for "360 achievement". We all go in with the best of intentions. Prior to owning a 360, you hear about the achievements you can gain through playing a game and how people bra...

Guitar Hero: Metallica - My Impressions So Far

Well, "so far" meaning "I'm only playing the demo". And honestly, I'm not quite sure what to think of Guitar Hero: Metallica. But before I explain myself, let me give you a quick little background on myself, in regards to Me...

My two cents - Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad

I wanted to like this game. Hell, I even defended it on other gaming sites. And for a while, I did enjoy it and felt that the negative reviews out there were totally missing the mark. I mean, what wasn't to like? Zombie-ki...

I want to strangle Club Nintendo

Look at it there. The logo. It's so simple, yet so inviting. You know right away what it is, and all the magic it potentially holds upon your little gamer heart. But, the damn thing is playing you. Any attempts to access ...

A Time to Destroy: Saint's Row 2

Okay, let's get the major complaint out of the way: yes, Saint's Row 2, like its predecessor, is a blatant rip-off of the Grand Theft Auto series. But is that so wrong, especially with GTA IV's realistic slant? I was happy ...

Son of a... (Persona 2 reprint)

Atlus, I love you. Really, I do. You know how to treat us gamers right, giving us a ton of freebies with your video games. But...goddammit. Maybe you could've announced this one a little earlier, like back when I dropped $6...

Of Heroes, Murder, and Redemption: A Fable 2 Tale

Before I begin, this may contain spoilers, depending on your definition of "spoilers". I've tried to keep things out that would ruin the story. I've tried to take an unfortunate glitch in the game (the 5-star economy Bowerst...

Snagged a copy of Fable 2 early...

Before I mention how the game is, here's my proof... Here it is, after opening it: Here's a shot of the sticker along the top, which was obviously ignored by the store I got it from: Yeah, those are Grateful Dead bears. ...

DLC gone wild (Tales of Vesperia)

Tales of Vesperia DLC will allow you to skip grinding and buy your way to the next level (via Kotaku). I...I don't know what to say. Seriously? Okay, I'm all for DLC when you are given new maps, maybe an extra level/area....

Ghostbusters isn't canceled...it's delayed

...and it has no publisher (via Kotaku). Goddamit. I hope it's not a decision made due to something Activision saw in the game and didn't like...such as it sucking total ass. I've been looking forward to this one, and now I have to wait until 2009. Awe-some.

It's a step in the right direction...

Iga, Mr. Castlevania, expresses possible interest in bringing the next 2-D Castlevania to WiiWare. While this is cool news, and the development of such a game may hinge upon Mega Man 9's success, I'm a little concerned about...

Dead Rising for the Wii being dumbed-down

Edit: Yeah, no need for the question mark up there in the title...no doubt it's being dumbed-down... Yeah, we all know that the Wii isn't as powerful as the 360. And while I love my Wii (heh heh), this image makes me hesitan...

At least Iga and Konami are giving us options

Castlevania excites me in ways that should be reserved for wife. When I hear news of a new game, my heart races, I get a little dizzy, and...uh...something happens...down there. Two Castlevania games? Forget about it...tho...

Dead Rising: The Burt & Aaron Saga

I'm relatively new to the world of Dead Rising, having started my adventures a few weeks ago. So far, I'm loving it. Minor complaints, like text size (I'm playing it on an SDTV), and not being able to freakin' smash Otis with...

Do Not Want: Guinness World Records - The Game

Okay, seriously...what is with all of this shovelware on the Wii and DS? I know both are the "it" systems at the moment, but as someone else said (possibly here, possibly somewhere else), it's getting a lot like the pre-crash...

The Start of the Affair: Dragon Warrior (NES)

*Quick warning...the game is what, almost 20 years old, but if you never played it, there may be spoilers ahead. But seriously...20 years. I've been playing video games ever since I was four. I was introduced into this magi...

Win back your gaming spouse...seriously?

I submit for your approval this story, giving tips to winning back your spouse, should they go down the dark, twisted path of video games. Seriously? These are the tips they give? And what's with the male example? I'm sure...

Brawl Online - 1 for 2

So, the night of the 9th, I set up my Brawl WiFi options...took a couple tries to get connected (kept getting the 51031 or whatever error). Called my friend up, he had his all set up and ready to go. After exchanging friend...

Hey ma! I made a game called 'Kid Icarus'!

Just a quick warning: though the game is 20+ years old, there may be some spoilers ahead. If you haven't played the game but plan to, stop reading now. ------------------------------------- I used to love playing Kid Icarus...

Castlevania 2-D, I love thee

Last night, my wife had control of the TV. Ghost Hunters International was on, but we both think it's sub-par to the original. Brian is a spaz. The leader guy (Ron? Russ?) looks like he killed/could kill someone...kinda like ...

Life and Death, anyone?

I was checking out Trauma Center: New Blood, when I had a flashback to the early 90's. I was just starting high school, and had told my parents I'd like to become a doctor, possible a brain surgeon. So, they went out and boug...

I don't care what you say about Zelda 2...

...I like it. Adventures of Link...FTW. I have liked it since it was released, and will long after we're all playing video games with electrodes hooked to our brains. It wasn't as good as the first one, but that's not to say...

Lots of blood vs. touching fish

I picked up No More Heroes and Endless Ocean last week. They couldn't be any more different from each other, yet I enjoy them both. I also have small complaints about both. With No More Heroes, the game starts off on a blood...
