A Quick One About Bayonetta 2 Before The Eternal Worm Devours Connecticut

Low review scores of any AAA video game, especially games that are part of a series, tend to result in a lot of anger from fans. For instance, give a Legend of Zelda title anything less than a 9/10 and you'll be on the ...   more



Gotta find 'em all! The simple joy of an in-game collection

Sometimes I find myself thinking a lot about the little things in video games, things that other people might overlook completely, yet somehow, they stand out to me as something particularly unique and intriguing. One s...   more



Giveaways and how I wasted my time writing a guide for a promo that just expired

I love free.There's been quite a lot of giveaways this year, some are quite good, some of them you claim just to run them in the background to get free Steam trading cards. Wasteland 1 - The Original Classic looks to be...   more



Funny Games and Violent Games

In 2007, Austrian film director and screenwriter Michael Haneke released an American shot-for-shot remake of his 1997 film Funny Games. The plot in both versions of the film was simple: two young men torture an upper-cl...   more



Operation Corgi Jelly Doughnut

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm sure you've all gotten the memo by now. There are forces out there conspiring and colluding to make us all want to feel bad for enjoying delicious Oreo cookies. Several weeks ago, people started...   more



Ending on a high note: My all time favorite game credits.

Some games you just don't ever want to see end. These ones at least do it with style. I have a confession to make: I rarely finish videogames nowadays. That being said, when I do beat a game for the first time there's n...   more



Google Play-giarism: Knockoff King of Fighters

Do you guys like my Halloween banner? For the entire month of October (and November maybe, I dunno, as long people still put up Halloween decorations in shops), this blog will be dedicated to articles about scaaary video...   more



I call dibs on Margaret, the Velvet Empress!

Last week I called dibs on Pikachu, though I generously let Script usurp my Smash dibs. It was confirmed last week via a Nintendo Direct that Pikachu is now a king, but that's fine - I have other royalty to turn my atten...   more



Occam Thoughts: Level Up

Hello.   How have you been?  Well I hope.  Fall is here.  Well, "here" can be relative.   Its here in terms of the calendar but its still entirely too hot in my waking world.  I need i...   more



Harvesting the Wrenchfarm: I'm an official Dtoid writer now!

I'm not good at playing things cool or affecting an aloof persona. I can't hide what I like, or what embarrasses me, everything is always written plain as day all over my mug. True to form, I can't hide how excited, ove...   more



Yes, this post is about guys in a car. (Warning: Strong roadtrip photos)

Because video games.   more



Super Smash Bros.: The Final Hope

Have you ever woken up one morning and thought to yourself, “Wow!  I’ve been a fan of this ongoing franchise for the majority of my life!  Spectacular!”  Yeah.  That was me not too ...   more

Super Smash Bros.: The Final Hope


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



A Crash Course on Gaming with an Orange Bandicoot

I don't remember how old I was during that time, but I was at some kid's house when it happened. I think it was a classmate's birthday party, so I was at least old enough to go to school. I don't recall much about the pa...   more



Calling Dibs on Robin...

...'s waifus. Yup. All of them. For both genders. Even Frederick. Espescially Frederick.   Deal with it.     more

Calling Dibs on Robin...


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



Calling All Gamers – Step Up and Have Your Opinions Heard

I realize that I haven’t posted in awhile, but I have a valid excuse. Who has two thumbs and is finalizing a Master’s Project in videogame violence? Actually no. That’s Borat and it’s me that is ...   more



A Secret to Everybody

I first met Link when I was a young girl, but it wasn’t until a few years ago when our friendship truly began to blossom. In the dim glow of my bedroom, I’d embark on some of the most fantastical journeys wi...   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


Dragon Age: Inquisition's Dorian is fully Freddie Mercury.

There's something I've just been able to unsee in Dragon Age: Inquistion. It's Dorian. He looks like Freddie Mercury. I'm not really even a huge Queen fan, but the likeness is just difficult to ignore. I'm willing to go ...   more



On strange fetishes... (good kids, don't read this!)

"People like different things" is a mantra I always live by when browsing the internet and looking at works created for the sake of entertainment. I firmly believe that we should not be quick to judge people as sick or&n...   more



I Write FP Stuff At Destructoid. AMA.

Heard there was a new C-Blog editor in town and had to check it out for myself. How are you all liking it? I knew there was a lot of clamoring in the forums about needing a new one, so with that said, is it working out be...   more

Send me your dreams, I will interpret them!

Okay, so my brain is exhausted from this whole week and somehow I produced a dozen drafts, two blogs, several forum posts and ran around town dropping applications and resumes everywhere because that shiny, new job I had ran ...   more



Occam Thoughts: Podcasts

I have found myself seeking some accompaniment when I am playing video games.  I used to listen to albums and audio books but lately the name of the game has been podcasts.  There is nothing more pleasant than facing the hord...   more



No place in games.

There once was a soldier who had a gruff voice, didn't believe in heroes and infiltrated facilities in cardboard boxes. After saving the world from nuclear annihilation twice and becoming a legend he soon holed himself u...   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?


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 starting tomorrow.  For some of y...   more
