My Favorite Game: Mega Man 2

I honestly didn't plan on responding to this month's Community Assignment until just a couple of days ago. You're all more than aware of my love for the Mega Man series, so my harping yet again about robots and jumping t...   more



ATTENTION ALL SMASH BROTHERS: I CALL DIBS ON BOWSER JR.!

Listen up, nerds. I know you're all clamoring to get your hands on this very popular character, but back off. He's mine. I am officially calling dibs on the Prince of Darkness himself, Bowser Jr.! Though there is absolut...   more

ATTENTION ALL SMASH BROTHERS: I CALL DIBS ON BOWSER JR.!


B-b-bain calls d-d-dibs on Dedede!

I like to try using as many different characters as I can when playing Smash. I usually rotate through a rather large list of characters, including Lucas, Ness, Diddy Kong, Bowser, Wario, Olimar, Ice Climbers, Jigglypuff...   more



The metal kid stays in the picture: I've got dibs on Megaman!

Selecting a character in a fighting game is a very personal thing. There are so many factors to consider – from the aesthetic and personality of a character, the way your playstyle meshes with a character's moves,...   more



What Are Video Games For?

Alternate post title: DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRp. All right, let’s be real here.  I’m pretty sure that by this point, I’ve made no shortage of my opinions known.  Some of ...   more



My Favorite Game: Yo, screw your desert island

I don't think it's really possible to have a “favorite” favorite game, or at least it's not possible for me. I've never been able to answer any of those hypothetical questions where you have to choose one al...   more



Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 – The Shakedown

  is the quintessential Steam Sale game. Exactly the kind of blood diamond in the rough that makes Steam's bi-annual extravaganzas so exciting. When launched, I could definitely see the appeal and about bought i...   more

Steam Sale Reviews: Payday 2 – The Shakedown


Tony Ponce was able to build this AMA in a cave

The other day, the lovely Brittany Vincent posted an AMA so that the readers could get to know their favorite new editor a little better. I love it when the "big dawgs" open themselves up to the community like that....   more



ADDENDUM: Linkle IS female Link after all!

Hey, everyone! As you might have noticed, I've decided to start doing musings again in my spare time. It's been too long since I've written anything that wasn't weighed down by deadlines or the need to be run past a group o...   more



So How Do You “Idealize” Female Characters?

It’s been a while since I’ve tossed a post up on Destructoid.  Let’s change that…with yet another ill-advised discussion on gender politics in video games!  Rejoice, sort of!  Or, alternatively, despair!   There was an arti...   more

So How Do You “Idealize” Female Characters?


The Legend of Korra proves why we need a female Link

I just got around to watching the Book 3 finale of The Legend of Korra (heart-wrenching ending, I might add). I'm always amazed by how good that show is. Sure, it doesn't quite reach the same lofty heights as The Last Airbe...   more



Bbain's Jukebox: Final boss

Boss music is often the most thrilling, intense music found on a video game soundtrack. Then there is the final boss music, which takes things to the extreme, highlighting the climactic action of a game. Everyone has their fa...   more



NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window

I watch a lot of YouTube on a regular basis, but since I've busted up my foot and find myself sitting around home all day, my dosage level has skyrocketed to Keith Richards-esq proportions. Sometimes I'll wake up, cue up so...   more

NVGR: Watching YouTube through the Rear Window


Wait for it... wait for it...

This puppy needs you to just pick up the ball so it can play some more and finally move on with its life. I know the feeling. I just finished my 3rd SolForge victory of the day. Yes, SolForge. I’m the only tablet card gamer...   more

Wait for it... wait for it...


Open World, Opener World, Openest World

So, raise your hand if any of the following terms remind you of a time in your life: * Play by Post * Chat RP * MUD * MUSH Okay, I count a few hands up… and a few blank stares… and a bit of drool… right, then. Those of you w...   more

I'd Move Mountains

After about an hour, a bed flew out of space and crashed into the mountain. There wasn't really anything I could do about it.  I rotated the mountain back and forth, and clicked on the bed to no particular avail.  It's stil...   more

Bbain's Jukebox: Western

The past few weeks, I've been playing Wild Arms. It's a pretty solid fantasy RPG, but what drew me to the game in the first place was its western theme. Much of the game seems to be tenuously related to the western genre at b...   more



A Clever Jaunt Through Time

Super Time Force had been showing at PAX for years, so I knew the premise long before it came out: if you die, you can rewind and "co-op" through the segment up till your death to help succeed the next time. While that statem...   more



God help me, I read some MechWarrior books

I have a slap-slap-kiss-kiss relationship with the Battletech/MechWarrior franchise. MechWarrior Online is a game I keep returning to even though I find it ridiculously underdeveloped and often completely frustrating to pla...   more



Tomb Raider is actually a survival horror game

Confession time: I've only ever played one video game which is considered a part of the survival horror genre, that game being Amnesia. I've never played any Resident Evils, or Silent Hills, or Fatal Frames, or Dead Spaces, o...   more



Bbain's Jukebox: Happiness

Hello everyone! If you've been following my presence here on the site, you've probably noticed that I really enjoy video game soundtracks. I talk about them a lot, and these days I actually tend to listen to video game music ...   more



Burn everything, play in the ashes: What games should learn from Risk: Legacy

I haven't played Risk since high school and I hadn't been interested to try it again since. But then again, regular old Risk never had mech-suits and bear-riding future Vikings did it? Enter Risk: Legacy, which upgrades th...   more



Beyond: Two Souls (feat. Kamen Rider Fourze)

So you know that whole “turn your brain off” mentality that people throw out sometimes?  You know -- the idea that if you just go with the flow, you’ll have more fun?  I don’t believe in that.  Setting aside the fact that s...   more

Beyond: Two Souls (feat. Kamen Rider Fourze)


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 and say "hi", before giving me ...   more



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 I’m trying to illustrate a point.  It’s an effective method, no question, but I’m w...   more

Sweet Spanish booty: and other reasons why Capcom will never go broke

Capcom has finally laid out the release dates for the latest update/expansion of Street Fighter IV. More importantly, they've more or less finalized the change list, the little tweaks and nudges made to bring the cast in ba...   more



Devil Survivor 2 is secretly brilliant.

Don't worry, I'll explain -- as I'm wont to do. There’s a question that’s been on my mind for a while now.  It should go without saying, but in this day and age we’re fortunate enough to be a society with full, often-insta...   more

Fuck the police! Anti-authoritarian games I have loved/hated

Watch_Dogs is coming out in a week, and I'm just not that terribly excited. But I should be. Watch_Dogs is the game I would have designed back in high school, back when I tried to paint in my Breakfast Club-esq one-dimen...   more



Got the BlazBlues

In a perfect world, I'd like to think your internal monologue when purchasing a new game – a new game you've been looking forward to and want to support with your money and know you will enjoy – should not be Christ, why am I...   more

10 reasons why Elsa is always right...

1.  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 class white woman with a n...   more
