TGS: Go Straight To Hell, Boys

Even with the steady stream of awesome-sounding updates, I can't say I'm as excited as I probably ought to be for the PlayStation Vita. All of the features sound great, and even the games I'm not that interested in look fabulous... but I'm ...

GB-Style Demake Super Smash Land Releases, Uh, Now

Lost in the shuffle amongst all this big-budget, Tokyo Game Show noise, Dan Fornace's Game-Boy-esque Smash Bros. demake, Super Smash Land, was released in its final form today, 9/14. Judging by the comments on the home page, there may sti...

 
 
 
 

Fusing Kinstones: Nin-the-end-o?

Fusing Kinstones is a series examining both sides of divisive issues in the world of gaming, both current and recurring, in the hopes of finding some common ground both sides can agree upon. Or, failing that, I'm just going to make fun of b...

Please, Aim It Higher

Normally, I think it's tawdry when people try to tie current affairs to video games for the sake of seeming relevant, but a thought struck me yesterday, so I'm going to become the thing I hate for a bit. It's been a decade now since Americ...

Labor Day: Of Course, You Realize, This Means Wark

A lot of Playstation veterans will tell you that Final Fantasy VII is the game for which they got the system, that it was the best Final Fantasy game EV4R, that they would kill for an HD remake, et cetera and so forth. I'll admit that it wa...

Improvements: Altering The Beast

I've been floating around long enough to appreciate Destructoid's sensitivity to and integration with their community, so it's rather encouraging to see such a direct request for input this week. That being said, I've got a fistful of ideas...

 
 
 
 

Being Social: We'll Always Have Rainbow Road

Back in 1995, the SNES and Genesis were graced with the precursor to modern, online console networks, in the form of XBAND, a service that let players dial each other up with modems for their game systems via a central connecting service,...

East vs. West: We've got the empire

[Today's promoted blog on last week's topic on East vs. West is from nekobun, who's cast his vote for Western devs. Want to see your own blog make it to the front page? Make sure you write something on this week's topic, Handhelds. -- JRo] ...

 
 
 

East vs. West: Honor Your Ancestors

When debating the superiority of the eastern game scene and that of the west, there's one thing to keep in mind, regardless of any declines or gains either side has made over recent years. When it comes down to it, without the east, we woul...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Tsavo Highway Ends - 1500 ft

Some amongst you may be aware that this is the last week the anything Halo will be in Bungie's hands. As of tomorrow, August 4th, 2011, the helm of Halo as a franchise will be entirely manned by 343 Industries, thus far responsible for Halo...

 
 
 
 

Downloadables: I've Loved You For A Thousand Years

Quick confession: I never got into the Scott Pilgrim comic until I heard the film was on the way and under the guidance of Edgar Wright. I'd glanced at the first volume a couple of times, after initial hype made me curious, but I mostly w...

 
 
 
 

It's All Over Now, Bomber Blue

Tony Ponce may have already given us a great article bidding adieu to Mega Man, but given how close the series is to my own heart, I figured I'd throw my own history with the blue bomber out there. I'm not usually the sort to get up and say...

 
 
 
 

Digital Distribution: Where's The Creme Filling?

The advent of fully downloadable games seems to be quite the blessing. Entire libraries of games, just a click or some scrolling and button-pressing away, yours concievably forever, virtually theft-proof, waiting for whenever you have the...

Every Journey Begins With A Single Step

And thankfully, none of those steps were part of a retread of Journey Escape for the Atari 2600. I was fortunate enough to score one of the Journey beta codes Dtoid was giving out earlier today, and it's probably the best thing that's ha...

 
 
 


About nekobunone of us since 5:17 PM on 06.29.2007

Hi, I'm Chris, though I've been going by nekobun and variants thereof for so long, I kind of answer to both anymore.

While I've kind of got my own thing going in the realm of indie coverage, at least in the form of playing through (and streaming) (and writing about) the huge backlog I'm developing of games gleaned from various indie bundles, I try to keep my more mainstream, game-related features here, as well as opinion pieces on the industry at large, out of mad love for the 'toid. When I'm not rambling here or trying to be clever in comments threads, you can catch me rambling on Facebook and my Twitter, and trying to be clever in the Dtoid.tv chat.
