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...

Why F2P Rarely Work

This game has dicks that cost more than $40. Loadout looked like a fun game. I had been watching it for a while, but never really got into the beta. With the official release on steam, I installed right away. And boy was I...

Surprises Hidden in the Eternal Darkness

It was long ago, feels like a dream, when Occams Electric Toothbrush did me a service only a true father can: he lent me his very own physical copy of Eternal Darkness. This happened, oh, almost two years ago, when he came ...

On advertising (Destructoid)

I'm the kinda guy who always enables Adblock anywhere I go. However, upon reading one of the main blog posts on the front page about how Destructoid's audience primarily uses Adblock, I disabled Adblock on Destructoid. After ...

Aaand Now I Want To Be an Archaeologist

You know, 2012 was a good year for me in gaming, especially for puzzle gaming--which I love. We started off the year with English Country Tune in February, which carried me through many months. Just months later in April, I g...

Endings: Sometimes Least is Best

I'll go ahead and let you know there will be spoilers for “I Am Alive” and for the movie “Looper”. I picked up I Am Alive during the halloween sales on Steam, because it looked like a game that genuinely intrigued my interes...

The Best Old Timey Trains Game You'll Play

I don't know what exactly I want to write about The Last Express. Usually I try coming up with some idea or observation or angle that I want to explore, but this time I'm not sure I have that. Alls I know is I have to write...

The Wreck-it/Fix-it Report

Surely some or hopefully all of you have seen the trailers for the upcoming Wreck-it-Ralph (coming soon to a theater near you!). I guess I probably saw it as a trailer for Paranorman (which was pretty good). But man, this ...

Conventions: PAX 2012 was a great, I say, a honkin' good time

This year was--I say--was a heck of a time, the best of times, even. I had a whole gaggle of fellas hanging around with me (good people, really good people, just a little kooky sometimes, if you get my meaning). Now listen up...

Re: Terraria coming to XBLA/PSN, PC users PISSED

I don't mind most of what Jim Sterling writes. Although they tend to be slanted in the direction Jim wants to take things instead of factual knowledge, I'm okay with it for the most part. But this post by him on terraria show...

Dark Souls and the "Style Over Substance" Mindset

It's no news to any of my friends that I'm severely addicted to Dark Souls at this point. I never could have predicted the way I became utterly gripped by it. Eventually, this largely became a matter of being integrated into ...

Why the Tropes vs. Women kickstarter project is a waste of time and money.

I'll go ahead and start with this; This is going to get offensive. I'm not holding back on any genders or races, even my own. I'm not doing this to BE racist or sexist. I'm merely going to interpret all of the stereotypes and...

First Impressions: The Witcher 2 Xbox 360 - Why am I enjoying this so much?

The Witcher 2 strikes me as a very odd game: It has a large cult following, beautiful graphics, a deep back story, loads of items to find and quests to go on. Basically it has everything an RPG needs to be successful on the...

The Witcher 2 Xbox 360 Pre-Review: Is There Anything Better Than Free Games?

BEHOLD! A whole 24 hours before its scheduled release date, I am the proud owner of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition (was this named by Capcom?)! Yep, I was one of the 1,000 lucky gamers chosen to review t...

Dear Star Wars Fans: Deal with it

I'm sorry to mention this once again, but it brings up such a good point in many of things. ME3, people were entitled to a good ending because they showed consumer loyalty and the games throughout were relatively good. They h...

Kickstarter: Why it could be a bad thing

Warning: This blog is full speculation. I am in no way saying Kickstarter does this or anything of the sort. Let's say, a Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 kickstarter project occurs. Someone wants to revive an amazing, yet dead, fr...

10 Factoids about knutaf

Do I bother? I feel like lots of people already know some thing or another about me by now. I feel like I talk about myself too much sometimes as it is. I get self conscious about that kind of thing. Oh, was that #1? Ha ha! B...

10 More Things About Cataract

I figured since I haven't written anything on Destructoid's Cblogs in ages, I might as well hop on with the fact that the "10 Things" blogs are popping up again. Because why the fuck not, am I right? 10. I've lost a lot of ...

Disappointments: Not a SMART move

I love TF2 with a passion, in fact, I've racked up over 430ish hours on it and occasionally turn it back on. So when people start hyping a game said to have team-based objectives, I get kind of excited. No other game to that ...

Why Mass Effect 3 haters need to speak up (Spoiler Free)

I'm not trying to be a douche hating on Daniel's story or anything, in fact I agree with the points he made saying how it isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. The fact of the matter is that there's a lot of hatred on ...

The Problem With Deus Ex Human Revolution

I recently got a 360 for the first time ever, and my friend's letting me borrow Deus Ex. I played it for a bit before on PC, but grew sick of how poorly my PC handled it, so I stopped. But now, I can play it a lot better, alt...

Journey Is About So Much More Than Travel

If you haven't played through Journey yet, stop reading this now. Just stop. Go away, play it, and come back to this blog when you can. This game is too beautiful and well crafted for me to spoil even the smallest aspect of...

Browser Games: Good ol' RS (Audio Blog)

I'm switching it up a bit and makng a full blog out of just audio, of me talkng. My laptop's keyboard is a bit messed up, and i figure this to be much easier anyway. I realize it's probably gonna disqualify me from being on the front page, but I don't think that that's what matters. I think these topic-specific blogs are meant just more for us to get our opinion out. Browser Games: Good ol' RS

The World of DLC

Before I get started, I also made this into an audio blog here. They both basically say the same thing, although one is read by a 17-year old's weird voice. What is DLC? According to wikipedia, DLC is content made downloadab...

Ezekiel 25:17 - a Dark Souls faith/dex PvP build

More Dark Souls! Since it is almost the only thing I've been playing for weeks, I guess it was only inevitable that I write another one of these, huh? If you've been watching my live stream at all, you'd have seen me crafting...

Piracy: What Jim Sterling missed.

I've agreed with what Jim Sterling has been saying in his latest jimquisitions, albeit I cannot stand his personality. Yes people, I get it, his conceitedness is a running joke, but it gets tiresome. So I overlooked it and fo...

The Haul Blog That Will End All Haul Blogs

Hey Destructoid, it's been awhile eh? I've been a busy little robot, let me tell you. I just graduated from RPI with a BAS in Video Games and Simulations Arts and Sciences and a BAS in Communications so I'm looking for a jo...

Weapons in Dark Souls Aren't a Numbers Game (img heavy)

Dark Souls is an RPG, right? I have trouble describing its genre to people. It's kind of an adventure game. It has some stats. Your character has some stats. You "level up", and so on. Yeah, I guess it's an action RPG... it j...

Being a Jolly Good Fellow in Dark Souls Co-op

If you listen to me on Twitter it's no secret that I play a lot of Dark Souls. A lot of the time I spent in the game was in co-op play, or, as we Sunbros like to say, JOLLY CO-OPERATION. I've played over 60 games of co-op at ...

The Myth of the Hero

It's funny how stories get changed as they're passed down from generation to generation. We read tales of daring deeds, masterful heroics, incredible skill... but how much of that is real, and how much of it is embellished? B...
