Tomb Raider: Lost Valley

I'm confused and afraid of what appears to be going on within the cblogs today, so I'm going to hide in my safe little corner of Dtoid and indulge in my favorite comfort food, classic TR. Lost Valley: BESTEST LEVEL EVER LV is one of t...

 
 
 
 

Making A Game: Beginning

Riorla, the main character-- her sprite looks like a little green bug right now, but I'm working on it! Some messy concept art follows. I can't recall if I've mentioned this in a previous blog, but I am working on a game: It's going to be...

 
 
 
 

NYCC Concludes: Loot and Randomness

Credit to Wilson for making such a beautiful display out of all my miscellaneous crap. This is what $140 buys you at NYCC, if you're me. I am cheating a bit because most of the actual comics were given to me for free by a friend of mine,...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

NY Comic Con: Wii is Teddy Ruxpin, DLC is WTF

In a statement that he immediately admitted was going to come back to haunt him, Bethesda's Todd Howard quipped that he viewed the Wii not as competition, but "Like Teddy Ruxpin, or a Cabbage Patch Kid." The Fallout 3 producer echoed re...

 
 
 
 

Review: The Blackwell Legacy

The main story involves Rosa and Joey investigating a young NYU student's suicide. The beautiful artwork throughout is one of many motivators to solve the mystery. A couple of weeks ago I posted an article about The Blackwell Legacy, sinc...

 
 
 
 

Samurai Drawing

For Yoj1mbo-- I think I probably messed up in that he wanted a strong, manly samurai, and I kind of made a teeny lil' girly samurai, but what can you do. I'm working on an actual blog post, but I figured I'd post this as long as it was d...

 
 
 
 

Fan Art: Yep it's more Lara

I don't know what it is with me and digital coloring, but whenever I color a picture lately I inevitably end up regretting it. I drew this picture of Lara a few weeks ago and thought "Hmm, might look good colored", and only realized afte...

 
 
 
 

RPG Round-Up

Venus Love-Me Bubble Beam! I like MS Paint. Yeah it's hard to make anything that looks that great, but that's kind of the fun of it: You know there's no point in trying to be a perfectionist, so you end up just trying to get the general ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Parasite Eve: Extended Boss Fight Edition

After noting how easy Day One was, I have to say that Day Two is a huge step up. I didn't remember it being difficult, but after running straight through and not taking on any unnecessary battles in this playthrough, the bosses were a bit...

 
 
 
 

Point-and-Click Coolness: Blackwell Series

Hey, Rosa, here's a Protip: If you don't want me to click on the plants, stop filling your apartment with plants. With a backlog of approximately 40,000 games in my "to play" pile, I don't tend to surf the internet looking for new stuff ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Lara Croft fanart (probably first in a series)

I was planning on doing the Lost Valley level for the Tomb Raider Project tonight, only a)that seemed like entirely too much work and b)as of right now the only article I could write about that level would go something like: OMG! This lev...

 
 
 
 

Aya Brea WIP

It's a little strange to call this a WIP, because Aya is essentially done; the problem is my idea for the overall pic isn't working. If you've played PE then you know that Aya has an ability called "Energy Shot", where she charges a bull...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Parasite Eve: Sewer Fun!

Before I get into PE, a note on format: I know these long entries can be a bit difficult to read, so to combat WOT syndrome, I've broken this one up into more manageable chunks. From now on I'll try to either do this, or break up my entri...

 
 
 
 

Tomb Raider: City of Vilcabamba

Spoiler Warning: I mention plot points in Final Fantasy X and Metal Gear Solid in this entry. If you haven't gotten around to playing either of those yet, you may want to just read the capsule review at the bottom. "Vilcabamba" is a real...

 
 
 
 

We Need A Moogle Suicide Hotline

I recently finished Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2. On the whole I think the first FFTA was superior: Too many of the new jobs are bland and/or redundant, the law system has become less onerous to manage but markedly less interesting, an...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 


About GamingGoddessone of us since 12:13 AM on 08.27.2008

Links to all things Me:

My Personal Blog
Because I occasionally think about things other than games (I know-- for shame!)
Currently doing a 20-year history of Nine Inch Nails, because apparently I don't have enough projects that are HUGE TIME-SUCKING MONSTERS. Anyway, I try to keep anything that's videogames-related on Gaming Goddess, but there's a little bit of inevitable crossover.

My graphic novel, Sterling
There is some videogame-related stuff in Sterling, particularly Final Fantasy, but that's not really the focus. Meant for adults, so don't say I didn't warn you:).

My Twitter I'm very conscious of twitter-spamming, so I try to tweet only when I update one of my blogs or comics. Some people can get away with constantly tweeting charming little witticisms and it's neat, but I think if you have any interest in my twitter at all, it should be useful, never a nuisance.

About the name Gaming Goddess: No, I do not have delusions of grandeur! At least, not about games!
The origin of GG is this: My boyfriend's Mom is REALLY good at Space Invaders and games like that, leading me to dub her the "8-bit Goddess". We decided that 8-bit Goddess would be a really good name for the gaming blog that I wanted to start, except it would be false advertising since I personally suck at 8-bit games. So I changed it to the more general Gaming Goddess-- so I'm good at some type of games, I just don't have to specify which ones:).

Of course, if my boyfriend's awesome mom wants to start a blog, she can be the 8-bit Goddess, and I will bow to her in humble submission.

Favorite Games:
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy Tactics
FFTA
Azure Dreams
Ehrgeiz
Vagrant Story
Parasite Eve
Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider II
Resident Evil 2
Metal Gear Solid
Izuna: Unemployed Ninja
Disgaea
X-Men Legends
X-Men Legends II
Tenchu: Stealth Assassins
Tenchu 2: Birth of the Ninja
Diablo II
.hack (the first batch)

Currently Playing:
I have decided to change this section to only what is in my consoles AT THE MOMENT as opposed to every game I'm technically in the middle of. Accuracy FTW.

DSi: Final Fantasy IV (It's amazing! Why did I wait so long?)
DS: ARMY OF MOOGLES, I mean, Final Fantasy VI
PS2: Odin Sphere
PSOne: Azure Dreams, Parasite Eve, Tomb Raider

Latest Fan Art:

Yeah, something new! Rydia's cool, people complain about the graphics in the new DS version of FFIV but I love the way the characters look...well, except for Rosa. The girl could use pants.

About Me:
I'm a starving artist/freelance writer/comic book artist/insert other vocation that makes very little money. If you're on Destructoid, chances are I am older than you. That kind of pisses me off.

Anyway, I'm working on some projects that I think might be of interest to some Dtoid readers, but I think I'll keep most of that stuff in my profile section, so the Cblogs won't be taken up with self-promotional posts from me. I'll add the info to my profile when I start my new comic and things like that.
