New Daily Runs of Spelunky, Nuclear Throne, and Risk of Rain

This week, I've started posting daily runs of some of my favorite procedurally generated games to my YouTube channel. Today had a rough start to the morning, with a little bit of disappointment over reading reviews forCastl...

Re-Arranging the Game...Music.

Some video game themes are perfect. They have the perfect blend of harmony, melody, and catchiness to instill within us a warmth that only music can provide. Like all music, however, you can have fun with it and mix it up a...

Dtoid Book Club: Ready Player One Week 1 (-ish)

Sorry for the delay in getting this week's Dtoid Book Club post up. I'm blaming Dale entirely for this one, as I've been waiting to get his feedback on our current book, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. But I can'ts waits no...

Introducing the Dtoid Book Club!

A few times in recent months, I've found myself trailing off on episodes of Podtoid to talking about books I'm reading or recommend books to others. It's prompted some people to approach me and suggest that I do some kind o...

Tokyo Travel Log: What I bought

Hey gang. I did make it home from Tokyo and I'd apologize for not having done more posts while there but, truth be told, there wasn't much more to tell. The rest of the week was dominated by work-related things, with the ex...

TGS Travel Log: Touring, shopping and lots of walking

(Just as a heads-up, at least one photo in this blog is really, really, NSFW.) My dogs, they are barking. While Tokyo Game Show doesn't start until later in the week, we wanted to get here a little bit early so we'd have a d...

TGS Travel Log: Arriving, sleeping

Sitting on the plane with about nine hours remaining in the flight. This flight rather sucks, if I'm being perfectly honest. There's no internet service available, for starters, which surprised the hell out of me. I would t...

TGS Travel Log: Getting there in one (conscious) piece

As some of you may be aware, I'm headed to Japan this week to attend the Tokyo Game Show. If this were a standard kind of trip, I would be ramping up my Twitter usage, communicating my thoughts about the trip as they happen...

I think I need to make a game

I'm not saying that I'd like to create a game one day, that it would be fun to try and turn what I've learned over my years of playing and thinking about games into one of my own creation. This feels more serious. I'm struc...

I'm watching Buffy and Jim Sterling is a right bastard

Last week, I appeared on an episode of Podtoid. At some point in the proceedings, Jim Sterling made some comment regarding Buffy the Vampire Slayer and was shocked when I professed to have no particular interest in the seri...

10 Things You Didn't Know About BunnyRabbit2

I decided not to take part in this the first time round but I figured I'd find 10 things this time. Sorry if some are a bit shit. 1. I'm half blind When I was really young, I ended up with a virus inside the cornea in my ...

Plight of the Rural Gamer

The Plight of the Rural Gamer I live in a town in southern, central Texas (go ahead, get the jokes out of the way) and I like it here. Sure, our governor is an idiot, I'm surrounded by more idiots, and the education system ...

Custom covers for Borderlands

I enjoyed the absolute hell out of Borderlands right up until that last expansion released and I lost any and all desire to play the game. But that doesn't change how much love I have for the time when I had a lot of love for...

Pretty Fly (For a Kaz Hirai)

Let me preface this by saying I DO NOT have "BIAS" against Sony. This parody song just came from a weird idea while working, and how Sony hasn't had the best image as of late. Kaz Hirai fit really well in the song title, an...

Deadly Premonition custom cover

Been some time since I got around to doing a custom game cover. When I first started making these, Deadly Premonition was always at the top of my list. I just couldn't settle on what I wanted to attempt. My first idea was ...

P2 Press Start: The Night Amensia Was Changed

It all started with the above infamous video, where a guy was reduced to pure panic over Amnesia as his friends were doubled over in laughter through voice chat. It was then that I decided to get the game, and came up with...

A Poem for Destructoid

So this is something I'm going to spit-ball as I type. Is this a poem of love for a great site? Yes Is this one devoted to both editors and the people that have made me laugh over the years? Yes Is this a cheap cash-in? ...

Custom covers for Uncharted

I took a little bit of time this weekend to whip up more game covers. Since I recently finished Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on Backlog (my live streaming show where I play through the unfinished games in my collection; Weekn...

A couple more custom game covers

I posted a pair of covers that I made for BioShock and Bayonetta on Friday. People seemed to like them, so I spent a little bit of time this weekend cooking up a couple more. Reading through the comments this weekend, someo...

A couple of custom game covers which I made

I was going through some files, doing a little maintenance, and came across a few custom covers I made a few months ago. Over time, I'll probably get around to making more of these (there's an unfinished Earth Defense Force...

PAX presence, A call for Dtoid Portlanders

After a year away from what's probably the biggest gathering of Dtoiders in the US, I'm happy to say that I'll be attending PAX Prime this year. I didn't join in on the fun in 2009 because getting across the country for a w...

Split/Second Review: A little late to the party

So I realize I'm a little late with reviewing this. But after having such a great time with it, I thought I would share some of my thoughts on it. I also pulled more than this review away from the experience, so hopefully I...

The Destructoid Fanfic: Turnabout Old Lady Punched in the Face (Happy Birthday!)

One year ago today I joined this community. It was quite good. It had been an aspiration of mine to be some kind of gaming writer type person for around five years prior, since I used to immerse myself in the UK Official Ni...

The Secret Armory Gets My Knoxx Off

The 3 most wanted on Pandora...and Brick who is 1 dollar less on the most wanted list... Borderlands had a formula that was a stronger stimulant than a taint laced with cocaine: "Kill, Loot, Level, Repeat". With the Secre...

My Expertise: Luck, Sticky Grenades,& Rockets

Lady Luck...what a great, mysterious, and messed up force. Luck happens to also be my greatest ally in games, especially in open-world, racing, and first-person shooters. Combine those, and usually, my opponents are screwed...

The Future: A Not-So-Quick-Hit Look at Videogames of the Future.

Where else can video games go? I'm sure many people are thinking this. We keep retreading the grounds of World War 2, pushing the limits on graphics, battling as grizzled space marines, waggling our wiiwangs, and battle amo...

A Hopeful List for Harmonix

Harmonix has brought out the best plastic controller music game, of all time. Guitar Hero can't even compare with it's 500 versions. However, one thing it has been lagging on is hard rock songs. So, Destructoid, I offer up...

Destructoid: One of My Favorite Places

[Warning, wall of text] Few pictures will appear. Lately, I had been feeling that I was just "another user" on Destructoid. "Lost in the crowd" if you will. I probably still am. But damn it...tonight...I had fun. (Thirs...
