A very Animal Crossing engagement story

Two years ago today, I asked a special woman to spend the rest of her life with me. This is the story of it all. I've told it before to people who have asked, but never written it down. It started more than five years ag...

Moving on (also, baby bats in blankets!)

With nearly five years of some of the best times of my life under my belt, I can't seem remember a time when I wasn't on this crazy Destructoid train. So this is going to be weird to type: as this month comes to a close, I ...

Questions regarding Bethesda titles Prey 2, Hunted, or Brink?

I'm in Utah this week, learning that being high up in the mountains means that I feel like I've run a marathon if I walk across the street. Pretty neat! I'm here for Bethesda's BFG 2011 event, where we're being shown Prey 2,...

Liight finally out on WiiWare

Finally, a worthwhile WiiWare game that doesn't start with the word(s) "Bit.Trip." Liight debuted way back in September of 2009 as one of the PAX 10 finalists, and it seemed interesting enough for me to call it second best...

Gamejournos hates satire

This is the header image, because it's okay to use misogynistic images to drive hits as long as you condemn the image. Bad image! Bad! Game journalist journalist: n - And individual who writes (professionally?) about comp...

Podtoid DX Championship Edition EX + Alpha 3: The Dream Warriors

About a month ago, the guy who signs my checks (that's Niero) said to me: "Hey, we need to get another podcast off the ground with the site's everyday, core writers. Get it done." He doesn't often demand I do things, so I f...

On being a Spike VGAs judge (bonus: my nominees!)

[Note: This is a first draft ramble about the process; I had originally intended to just dump my choices here and move on. So please forgive any errors or oddities.] Little known fact: to choose the nominees for the VGAs, Sp...

Fallout: New Vegas launch party, game magazines, a baby

So first off, Bethesda has the best fucking stamps. When they sent me a holiday card last December, the stamp had a picture of Vault Boy wearing a Santa Claus hat. Here's the stamp that was on the invite for the upcoming laun...

PAX memories and pictures from Dexter345

PAX Prime 2010 has come and gone, far too quickly, as usual. Everybody has slightly different memories of the extravaganza; indulge me for a moment to hear about mine. I got in on Thursday evening, and called up Wedge, be...

Aero Racer review (PSN)

With little fanfare, Aero Racer was released last week as a PS3 Mini. Indeed, so little effort is being put into marketing this bite-sized gem that developer Halfbrick Studios makes no mention of it on its website. This m...

On 'Splosion Man and great game design

In case you don't know, 'Splosion Man is an XBLA platform game that was released last year. Even if you don't have firsthand experience with it, you ought to know a bit about it, as it got a nine out of ten in the official...

Something about E3: I'm sick of game journalists complaining about their jobs

You want more plastic instruments?

Well, for those of you who still love having plastic instruments, and demand even more, a visit to my local walmart today has ended in good news for you. Apparently, walmart is running a sale on Rock Band 2 PS3 bundles. Tried to send this to the tips email, doesn't work for some reason. Anyway, for you new ps3 owners who demand more instruments, here you go!

Is Zelda still relevant to current-gen gaming?

In my personal opinion as a long-time Zelda fan, the last classic Zelda was Wind Waker. The last GOOD Zelda, was Minish Cap. Not to imply that Wind Waker wasn't good, because it very much is, hence it's status in my personal ...

Valkyria Chronicles separates the generals from the armchair generals

If I could toot my own horn for just a bit, I'd say that I think I'm pretty good at turn-based strategy games. I spent countless hours playing Civilization III, I recently extolled the virtues of Might & Magic: Clash of He...

Buy this game: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes

So, an RPG, a turn-based strategy, and a puzzle game walk into a bar. There they meet some spiffy, yet slightly generic manga-lookin' characters. Everybody has a grand old boozy good time, they go home together, and the r...

Less than a week left for Dtoid's 2009 Completed Games List!

If you're like me, you're spending the holiday season trying to play through as many games as possible right now. My reason for doing so, other than enjoyment, is because I want to bump up the number of games I completed th...

Introduction to the Fightan Gaemz

(Note: this series of blogs was written with Street Fighter IV in mind, so that will be the prime example used. Also, I am by NO MEANS an expert at these games, and in fact, suck at them. However, I'm sure the veterans would ...

Dtoid's 2009 Completed Games List: August/September/October

Woah. So...I kinda neglected this list for almost four months. My bad. So I'll just skip the small talk and analysis and just get right into the meat of things. There's this list of completed games, the full list of which c...
