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&...

Pixiedust #2: Promotions, Bloggers Wanted & Band of Bloggers.

July has been very strong as front page promotions go, leading to at least a dozen promotions thus far. I've been very happy about the response to the "Bloggers Wanted" prompt this month, "Better with age." I had pitched...

A fae falls to the dark side...

Bleh. It's been that kind of week for me. Not only did I get to enjoy the stress and tedium of job interviews and filling out more applications, (because what the fuck is my resume for again?) I had some sort of reaction to a...

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...

The juggling act

So here I am doing that thing I do after beating a game. I like to call it my "post-game juggling act." It's what happens when I finish a game and can't make up my mind what to play next. I replay a lot of older games and thi...

My last day with Lucy

Hey guys, I've really been trying to get back to the monthly recap and finish it, but I'm also in a little bit of a sad situation so it may be late tonight or tomorrow when it finally goes live.  I've never had a pet of ...

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 ...

Hype: Arrivals, departures and Shenmue

So Shenmue III is now a real sequel and no longer an urban legend. On Monday I got so excited I couldn't really think of anything to say in my Sunday recap but "Shenmue III!" so I guess I should do some explaining w...

The Agenda: Twisting the knife

I believe developers should make what they want, which is why I'm ecstatic Konami announced a new 2D Castlevania by Koji Igarashi at E3 2015 this week. After eight long years of waiting after Order of Ecclesia, ...

The complications of Final Fantasy VII's remake

When it comes to remaking games, I think Eiji Aonuma and Shinji Mikami may be masters of revision. These are two guys that were willing to look at their celebrated classics and looked at them critically, considering a fa...

The cards have spoken: Your E3 2015 wishes predicted!

Welcome back to the Velvet Room - a place between mind and matter, between dream and reality. I have called you back here because you left an E3 wish with me and I wanted to let you know what the cards revealed regarding...

Tell me your E3 wishes and let us see what the cards reveal...

Welcome to the Velvat Room. This is a place that exists between mind and matter, between dream and reality.  My, there sure are a lot of you here. This is a momentous occasion indeed! You seem like rather unusual g...

Pixie is evolving! Let it continue?

These last several months have seen a lot of change for me at Destructoid. Pretty much every Sunday since around or just before September 2014 I've been recapping cblogs. Then I got intriuged by the idea of assembling mo...

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...

What motivates your creation of a character?

When I'm given the option to create a character in an RPG or hunter game, I tend to go a little overboard, I guess. I'll sit there and spend hours messing with the options - especially if I know that character is going t...

Another ten things about a pixie

I'm still kinda torn on what stuff to write at the moment. I have a lot of ideas and my brain is shooting off in so many directions I can't seem to settle on one draft before starting another one. This either means a lot...
May 04 // Pixie The Fairy

I'm Pixie The Fairy. You can ask me things and stuff.

Changed my username today. This is Pixielated, which I thought was a clever play on words until I looked around the internet. After some thought about that - and Strider constantly referring to me as "Pixel" - I decided ...

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...

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...

Thoughts on Illusory Revelations #FE (SMTxFE)

Okay, so the Illusory Revelations #FE (formerly known as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem) trailer is a thing and everyone that was expecting a fanservice-y crossover event has been left a bit ... "wut." Don't worry, my ...

The Agenda: Republican generosity

The other day I read something that made me drop my glitter and fairy dust - the  governor of Indiana and several other American states are giving away money to the rest of America. They're giving away gaming conven...

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...

A robot, a snowman and a man in a pink robe said I won a thing.

I said this thing:   And won this thing: There were also things in it, like music for my ears, art for my eyes, a case for my future New 3DS XL and a game that says you should draw the maps if you want to remember ...

The Agenda: The Ring of Pandas

Over the years I've heard much about mythical "panda rings." I have been told game developers hand them out to certain groups of people to get them to buy their games. I imagine this is why you hear about about Bioware g...

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...

The Flame Game

The Inferno Goddess moves in mysterious ways. I am only one of Her priestesses but it as recently come to my attention that a TV show depicted alleged Inferno Goddess worshippers in a negative light. I'll be frank, ...

The Rise of Majora's Mask

If there's one thing you can count on from fans of The Legend of Zelda, its consistency. These people know what they want. Zelda fans today complain that the series is always more of the same, which is why when ...

50 Shades of Fae: The Zelda Interview

As a proper Hyrule Historian, I have spent many years pouring over various documents, studies regarding the Triforce, various incarnations of our Legendary Hero, the Royal Family, the Seven Sages and the various evils th...

The Agenda: Male Gays

Whenever I listen to feminists like that Anna Snarkeesia, I find most of their points agreeable - but then they start talking about how female characters are designed for the male gays. They seem really insistant that ch...

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 ...
