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&...

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...

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 ...

Hello, friends. I've released a new album of music called "2AD15 - II". It is part of the 2AD1X series of albums I've been releasing since 2014. I released 3 last year, and this is my second one this year. As far as futu...

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...

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...

10 Things + 10 Comparsions about Me + Sure Ask Me Anything :p

I read Mr Andy Dixon's blog and it inspired me to make a similar one. It's difficult for me to come up with 10 things about myself, because there's a lot to know about me. I'm going to compare myself to Andy's list of 10...

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...

[NVGR] Where's the Music!?

Hello, friends. I wanted to write a blog to update you guys on several things. First, a little bit of "promotion", I set up a Patreon, in case for some reason, someone felt like supporting me without having to pay for my...

Songs for Gamers Volume IV Update (10/20) *April Fools Joke

EDIT: I'm updating this blog to let people know (since it's no longer April 1st) that this blog post was an April Fools joke. I originally hid it, but I figure it'd be fun to keep around, even though I spoil the "surpris...

New Music Album: 2AD15 - I / Status of Songs for Gamers Volume IV

Good day, friends. I released a new album earlier that I wanted to share (what else is new!? :p). It's called 2AD15 - I. I suppose it has an odd name if you haven't seen me post before, but since I'm terrible with names,...

Bbain's Jukebox: It's about to get gay in here!

Hello everyone! I'm in kind of a silly mood, so I decided to do another jukebox blog (which Shade was kind enough to keep alive!) with one of the more random themes I've been considering. I was listening to one of these...

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...

9 inspirational true life stories on this week's episode of Destructoid

The ninth year of Destructoid has dawned, and we've been asked to honor the nine Dtoiders who have inspired us. This is no easy task for me, Dtoid has been an inspiring presence in my life for more than half a deca...

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...

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 ...

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...

The Play it/Avoid it Report - 003 // Mario Kart 8, Sunset Overdrive, and more

What's going on, Destructoid Cbloggers? Are you getting tired of me resurrecting this feature once a year? Tough shit! I played a few games that I want to talk about and I am going to use this platform to do so. If you'v...

Songs for Gamers Volume III - Update 2 of ? (Feedback needed)

Hello friends, I wanted to share the next 10 tracks with you, but I also wanted to get some feedback/thoughts on something. I might be having an issue with my audio setup that may slow down or even prevent me from writin...

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...

Super special announcement from bbain!

Hello everyone! I have some wonderful news to announce. Yesterday, Jordan Devore made me an official member of the Destructoid team! I'm all black and white now! Well, I guess Balrog has always been kinda black and white...

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...

Music Blog: Songs for Gamers Volume III - Update 1 of ?

I know, I probably don't need to put "Music Blog" in my title, since all I ever write about is music. When I'm done writing about my own music, I'm going to write about video game music, since it's my blood :p I wanted t...

Music Blog- The Lesser Used Talent (VGM Arrangements)

Hello friends. I wanted to write about something that is kind of personal to me. I have a huge internal struggle with this, so I might sound like I'm flip-flopping, but only because I feel strongly for all sides. I'm, od...

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...

Music Blog - My "No-to-Low View" Songs.

Hi. I'm trying to write a blog I think might be interesting. At first, I was going to write a long blog about my oldest material, but it was too time-consuming. I was then going to write one about my top ten favorite tra...
