Well, God of War is upon us. I am getting ready for my desperate attempt to get a copy at midnight. I probably should have preordered, I'm not sure I'll actually be able to get my hands on it. Getting some mad anxiety now.


Playing Boktai as a kid, I had just beaten the wolf boss and dragged him to a place where he was supposed to stay put. I then saved and turned off the game. When I turned it back on, he was gone. Literally glitched out of existence. #Glitchtoid


This one's pretty neat, although the title's a lie. The animation changes styles sporadically, some longer, some shorter.


You know what I like most about Blue Dragon? The enemies. They are very unique. I mean, they could have used the standard fantasy monsters, or just chucked Dragon Quest monsters in it. But no, they came up with all new, original monsters. And I love it.


Made it to disc 2 of Blue Dragon. Disc 1 had enough content for a full game. And I still have disc 3 too. Definitely won't get done before Dad of War, but I will definitely come back to Blue Dragon when I finish. Game's getting good.


Well fuck. I thought I was going to be able to make it to work today but then nope. Blizzard cranked up to 10. Almost a white out now. Hate calling in so late, but I really don't want to die today. My boss was cool about it too. Wasn't even surprised.


Friendly reminder to read this month's Book of the Month, Pendragon: The Merchant of Death. Also, speaking of dragons, play a dragon game for this month's Band of Bloggers. And hey, while you're at it why not sacrifice a virgin to ensure a fine harvest?


My Band of Bloggers blog for Blue Dragon is up. Not done with the game yet, but seeing as how I'm only on disc 1 and the month is almost half over (not to mention Dad of War's impending release) I don't think I'd be able to beat it this month anyway.


Band of Bloggers - Blue Dragon Impressions

Blue Dragon. An Xbox 360 exclusive JRPG featuring the talents of Hironobu Sakaguchi, Nobuo Uematsu, and Akira Toriyama. It’s one of those games that genuinely convinced me that I would have to get a 360. I still wouldn’t u...


Holy shit I did not realize the new Suicide Squad animated movie was already out. Now I have to be careful on Youtube since people have already uploaded spoiler-y video clips and YT knows I watch DC film and show clips.


I've started Blue Dragon for the new Band of Bloggers theme, and boy am I glad. Starts off a bit slow, but it's quickly turning into quite the JRPG treat.


Finally got around to watching Thor: Ragnarok. Pretty good. Better than the first two Thors by a mile. I always find it weird how pop culture twists things like Hela and Hades though. They weren't villains. Hell, they were nicer than most of their peers.


What if you can use the Skylander toys in the Spyro remasters to get new playable characters? I mean, I still wouldn't buy them personally, but it'd be cool for people that already have them.


Happy birthday Ackbong! Unless of course I'm late (which I probably am). Either way, hope your birthday is/was great and every day afterwards too!


A part of me really wants this, even though I have no idea what I would do with it. I mean, what the fuck do you do with something like this?


So, uh, someone tried to shoot up Youtube HQ apparently. No one working for YouTube was killed, at this time, but at least four were wounded. The shooter is dead.


System transfer to my new 2DSXL fucked up and ALL of my saved data is gone. All just gone. I'm so fucking pissed. I did everything I was supposed to, exactly how the instructions said. And now my shit's gone. Fuck Nintendo for making this even a thing.


You know, when Brutalmoose started doing food stuff, I was a little disappointed. I started watching his videos for his game reviews. But now his food videos are what I watch him for. Something great about watching him fail at cooking/baking.


BUMPED: Oh also, the new Book of the Month blog is up. Realizing just now I probably should have picked some kind of joke book for April Fool's, but oh well. I hope you enjoy learning about Pendragon: The Merchant of Death.


Google Maps' April Fool's Day joke is being able to play Where's Waldo (or Wally for you non-Americans).


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Current Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, and Self-Appointed Grand Duke Viceroy of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer, aspiring writer, and a big fan of dark, offbeat humor. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
