Magic: Arena finally gets its mastery (season) pass right

Magic: The Gathering Arena has some monetization problems: but finally, the season (known as "mastery" in this game) pass isn't one of them. Though the whole concept got off to a very rocky start, the recent Theros expansion managed to...

Kunio-kun/River City invades Smash Ultimate this week

Nintendo is keeping the Smash Ultimate events running, and following a cool little amiibo tournament, we're back to spirits again. These spirits are a little more interesting than your average fare though, as Smash Ultimate is welcomin...

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Playing through Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is very much like experiencing a re-watch of Dragon Ball Z itself. There's filler, excitement, and everything in-between. In the end, it managed to just win me over, but only because I a...

Yeah, Zelda: Breath of the Wild could work as an SNES game

Demakes fascinate me. It's impossible to literally go back in time and supplant retro games with newer concepts, knowing what we know now. But I'm engrossed in the artistry of it: especially if the theoretical concept works, or even better:...

Megaton Musashi still exists, this trailer proves it

I've  been covering Megaton Musashi (which is definitely not a Brave Fencer Musashi sequel) for around...four years now. In typical bombastic Level-5 fashion the IP was originally supposed to be this huge toy and media line spearheaded...

Here's an exclusive look at the new Dark Crystal game

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is coming out soon enough. Developed by BonusXP, the game takes a decidedly SRPG approach, giving the player control of a scrappy Gelfling resistance as they battle the evil Skesis: the bird-like ...

Review in Progress: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

I can't think of a better theoretical quality roller coaster than an anime-based game. These sorts of projects are an inevitability, but it really matters who works on them. Sometimes Spike Chunsoft will churn out a polarizing brawler. Othe...

As of today, there are no announced amiibo on the horizon

We're currently going through the Delay-Apocalypse right now: well, what about the amiibo-Apocalypse? Today, the Dark Samus and Richter amiibo arrived, following a decent amount of up and down pre-order stock opportunities (currently, they ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


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
