Even in my kitchen there's an F.O.E!

I was making a very late dinner Tuesday night. I spilled a little Worcestershire sauce and this appeared on my counter: I fucking ran away. It is not there now, but it may still be roaming ...   more



Setting booty traps! Or why The Goonies II is due a remake.

Well, if there was anyone that could make a sequel to or reboot of a movie from my childhood, Richard Donner is one of the few I'd let get away with it. A new Goonies movie is really happening! ...   more

Should Castlevania praise the sun?

So in the midst of playing Metroidvanias and RPGs so far this year, I took a small detour into the NES "Classic" Castlevania era. This is to say I played the original Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden...   more

Should Castlevania praise the sun?


My favorite Metroidvania moments.

This is a Metroidvania kind of week and I'm having a Metroidvania year thus far. With Super Metroid's 20th anniversary today, Koji Igarashi leaving Konami to likely make more Metroidvanias and ev...   more



Iga Returns?

Koji Igarashi. Perhaps he is what Dracula saw in his Mirror of Fate, aside from Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2's Metacritic scores. Perhaps Dracula saw him speaking at GDC 2014 this week specifi...   more

Is Senran Kagura Secretly Brilliant?

Hey, happy Valentineís Day.† Letís talk about breasts. A while back, I was on The Escapist sifting through the forums -- something I donít do all that often, unless thereís an interesting topi...   more



Snow daze

It has begun. The snow, that is. A journey and brief stay in the snow. A snowjourn? Here in the American southeast - with the exception of the Appalachian portion of the region - people flip o...   more

Another Metroid post: The Zero Missioning!

I spent part of this last week playing Metroid Zero Mission, mostly to take a break from Fire Emblem Awakening for a bit but also to celebrate the remake's tenth anniversary today. Zero Mission i...   more

Girly Guys and Manly Girls

Fair warning: this is probably going to be the stupidest post youíve ever read.† Or if not the stupidest, then the one thatíll draw discussion away from the topic and put me under (or on) fire....   more



FACTS! Because I said they are!

Here on the internet we can affirm truths by simply saying "FACT" in all caps. So long as we do this, we can sneer down at our lessers for we are true gamers and they can go play Candyland until ...   more



Lightning Returns: One Last Battle

I donít think Iíve had an existential crisis this bad since I watched Transformers: Dark of the Moon and legitimately wanted to bash my head against something until everything went black.† Just...   more

2014 should be the Year of Samus Aran

Hey, Nintendo. I'm sure you're really busy right now with restructuring plans and excited to read all the advice people have been recycling for the last 15 years, but there's an important date co...   more



Across the Miiverse

Well, it's a new year and the first thing I'm doing is beating the crap out of Fire Emblem: Awakening and Shin Megami Tensei IV a couple more times. I bought up all the DLC for SMT IV that matter...   more



2013: The year I found this floor deliciously warm!

Well, this is a bit of a last minute blog. This isn't really an "of the year" blog or anything. This is more of an assessment of the games that I set out to play, the ones I didn't get around to ...   more



Pixie's Mix #2: Merry WTF-ever!

Hey folks, don't have a lot of time for in-between commentary on this post, but I thought I'd share some holiday-themed game music and at least other tracks that fit a wintery theme. It was actu...   more



The invisibility of the older woman...

I'm currently 51 and frankly, when I hit 50... shit happened. †I stopped dying my hair only to find out that I no longer had dark brown hair, but instead when the sun hits my locks, you could b...   more



A pixie's dreams (on video games, D-toid & Dismal Jesters).

It all started on the Big Shell from Big Shell was under attack by dragons. This was bad because there was a party going on inside the Big Shell in celebration on Bill Cosby's latest film, host...   more



Pixie's Mix #1: Favorites from 2013

I don't know how frequent a series of posts like this will be, but I'm always adding game music to my various things that play MP3s, which is my 3DS, my old PC and now my tablet. 2013 had a lot o...   more



The dark side of my tablet

Last week I got a Nexus 7 and talked about it. I got it to meet basic computing needs my laptop was no longer meeting. I thought that by getting this I would have to delay my conquest of and un...   more

Four things I want from Fallout 4

So it seems a Fallout 4 announcement is nigh. That's good to know since my plans to build a gaming PC or at least get a Steam Box to run it are also planned for next year. I love post-apocalyptic...   more



Tablets, streaming, chibi Kanji and other things.

So I got this Nexus 7 thing today. My laptop ceased to be reliable, money is tight and sadly some sacrifices had to be made - namely my PS Vita and a couple games. Good news is I spent no cash on...   more

I touched some next gen kiosks!

I guess you could say I'm not all aboard the next gen hype train. Even so, the Xbox One and PS4 kiosks arrived at two different Gamestops in my area and I took one of them for a spin. I'd say bo...   more

The simple elegance of Final Fantasy VI

So playing FFVIII started me on a little Final Fantasy kick, steering me away from my binging on Shin Megami Tensei, Persona, Fire Emblem and other games I've played this year. Its actually rathe...   more



Of Batman and Prequels

Once upon a time, I hoped that when Nolanís Dark Knight Trilogy came to an end, we could all shut the hell up about Batman for a while.† Not forever.† Just long enough to give the guy a rest.† ...   more

Ideas for The Great Electric Mouse Detective

So it looks like Pikachu is going to get in on the sleuthing business. A grand mystery is laid out before him and maybe only a pokemon like him can solve it. Maybe other pokemon can even help him...   more

Five things from games that could keep me awake at night.

I'm always puzzled as to why many of my dreams are zombie-related. I can't even rank them as nightmares much of the time. In fact, I don't really even have nightmares that often. I had a roommate...   more



As Black as Lightning (Part 3 -- FINALE)

And here we are, one more time. † If for some silly reason youíre just joining me here for this FFXIII miniseries , let me give you another primer.† The thrust of my argument is that Lightning...   more

You son of a submariner!

Well, I'm done with Final Fantasy VIII. Because I chose to do Laguna and Squall's stories on the side in Dissidia Duodecim, I kinda fell into playing other characters and that got me sucked into ...   more



As Black as Lightning (Part 2)

And here we are again.† If youíre just joining me here†, let me give you a primer.† In lieu of current evidence, Iím convinced that Square Enixís beloved Lightning Farron is more than what she...   more

As Black as Lightning (Part 1)

I have a sneaking suspicion that it was (the great) Jim Sterlingís review of that led me to discover Destructoid one fateful day.† In a universe where eights, nines, and the occasional perfect ...   more
