Review: Nine Parchments

We've done a few late-in-the-game reviews before in Destructoid's history. If enough people ask, we'll do it! Such is the case for Nine Parchments, which actually launched in 2017 on PC, PS4 and Switch and 2018 on Xbox One. We've basically ...

Review: Soulcalibur VI

Bandai Namco has a lot to answer for after 2012's Soulcalibur V. After gutting the beloved core cast and a number of single-player modes the series felt hamstrung, to the point where some felt that it could never come back. When in doubt, p...

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has ushered in a new era of AAA: one where every studio and their grandmother tries to pack a battle royale gametype into their project. The thing is, Activision actually did it right, while also providing a strong...

The Super Mario Bros. theme on the marimba is pure fire

This one is kind of an oldie (if you consider 2015 "OLD"), but a goodie. A few years ago the YouTube channel AaronGrooves put out a pretty amazing rendition of the original Super Mario Bros. theme on the marimba, and it rocks...

My Nintendo is getting some spooky rewards for October

Although this October My Nintendo promotion just reminds me of the days of old when Club Nintendo had that badass Luigi's Mansion statue, it does have a few cute additions worth glancing at. As part of the spooky holiday season, Ninten...

Famitsu teases a 'revival' for a Level-5 cancelled game

Level-5 is a storied, 20-year-old company with a lot of properties under its belt. A lot of folks don't know that they actually created the Dark Cloud series, as well as memorable games like Jeanne d'Arc and Rogue Galaxy. Before they shifte...

Square Enix muses on a non-MMO localization of Dragon Quest X

Dragon Quest X launched all the way back in 2012 in Japan, but it still makes its way into the gaming news-sphere every so often. As the first main series MMO it's a rather big deal, especially when you consider that it was never localized....

 
 
 
 


About Chris Carterone of us since 3:56 PM on 01.05.2009



Chris has been enjoying Destructoid avidly since 2008. He finally decided to take the next step, make an account, and start blogging in January of 2009. Now, he's staff!

I'm married, and I've been playing games since I was 4. I still remember buying my own NES system at Sears and going home and playing Mario/Duck Hunt. Fast forward to the present, my wife and I now own a PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U.

If I had to choose a system I had the "best times" with, it would be a two way tie between the Sega Dreamcast and Sony Playstation 2. My favorite game series is Mega Man Classic, but I own every Metal Gear, Devil May Cry, Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Wario, Tony Hawk, main series Final Fantasy, and Resident Evil game ever released in the US (and a lot more), so it's a close call!

There are too many good games out to count now, but I'm always itching to play my backlog of old PS2 action titles. I'll play anything and everything action-adventure, so if you have a game in mind, drop me a line! I have strong opinions regarding the financial decisions of many publishers, but at the end of the day, I'm willing to give anything a chance; especially if it comes recommended by a community member.

Oh; and in 2012 I started contributing to Destructoid.

Currently backed upcoming crowdfunding projects:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Shenmue III

I also backed the Tiny Cartridge Patreon in 2014 for several months, but no longer back any gaming personality Patreon campaigns currently
