Ikaruga: Overrated? (An audio-blog)

I'm pretty much walking out the door, but I wanted to post this today; so bear with me.

Things to know:

- This is an audio-blog because it's way quicker than trying to type everything, and time is a factor for me right now.
- It's in em-pee-three format.
- I mention 13thDragon and Banj, but this isn't directly addressed to them. It's to anyone who is wondering why people like Ikaruga, or even games like it.
- I have no idea how to do an outro.
- I pretty much just sat down and winged this. There's extremely little editing done on it too, so it's a little rough.
- It's 5 minutes long, but you can browse the intertubes while listening. How convenient!
- I'm not trying to take pot-shots at people who don't like the game. Diff'rent strokes.
- I just saw EDS's c-blog about Ikaruga. He touches on some of the same points that I do. Sorry, if I had seen it first I would have added more, but I don't have time to re-record.

For the basics, check out my forum intro thread.

Or for the lazy, here's all you really need to know about me summed up in one picture:

Now that that's done with, let's move onto the blog itself. This blog isn't going to contain any news. Like EVER. Like NEVER EVER FOREVER NEVER. I have no intention of doing anything other than posting original content (mostly just pictures that I make with my extremely limited photoshop skills along with original stories and whatnot). The bottom line is that I think that there are plenty of people doing editorial/reviewer style content already, and so instead of adding to the glut, I'll just stick to what I know:

Dicking around :D

Now enjoy... or DON'T!

My one year anniversary: I did a bunch of traveling and met a bunch of Dtoiders whilst doing so. Here's my one year anniversary/travel summary audio c-blog.

Other work: I also write for a site called Negative Gamer which was started by Wardrox. It's super cool and full of dinosaurs. RAWR!

Destructoid Cards

I've made many a card for many a Dtoider after getting the idea from a forum thread in which Atheistium posted a template and a challenge. Currently I'm a little too busy with school/work/fighting enemies of truth and justice to make more, but I'll get another batch out eventually. Here are links to all my Dtoid card posts!
