There's a weird conspiracy theory going around claiming that some dumb ass Kickstarter campaign is actually a viral marketing stunt orchestrated by Hideo Kojima to promote the resurrection of Silent Hills and it's just...


Happy birthday Gundy! Picture probably unrelated.


Don't expect much else from me but Metroid Dread posts. This is my life now.


I really like the theory that Samus's new suit in Dread is the same suit from Fusion, just after someone tried to surgically remove it from her body, but wasn't able to get it all off. I don't think it's true. But man I wish it was.


Got a surprise in the mail. My Limited Run copy of Sea of Solitude that I impulse bought when I preordered both No More Heroes arrived! I know the game had pretty mixed reviews but I'm pretty stoked to give it a shot.


I finally got Metroid 5. I'm happy.


Okay, I know there's been a lot of negativity lately, and it's been rubbing some folks the wrong way. I get that. But seriously, WTF was that? Why did Capcom do a big showcase if they had nothing new to show off? I just don't get it.


So...you guys hear the news about Batman?


Seriously Sony/Insomniac need to port all the Ratchet & Clank games to the PS5. Rift Apart has me itching to dive back into the old games but I don't want to hook my PS3 back up.


Holy shit it's looking like the Final Fantasy Origins game is a fucking ISEKAI and the protagonists are just 3 random dudebros that get sucked into the Final Fantasy universe. If this ends up being true I am going to shit bricks!


Btw how wild is it that a Final Fantasy game has a main protagonist that's just wearing a t-shirt?! That's fucking crazy!


So that "Chaos" game is either an edgy remake of the original Final Fantasy or an edgy prequel. Either way I'm in.


Beat Rift Apart. It isn't the best Ratchet & Clank game imo, but it's very good and fun. Loved Rivet. Hope to see more of her in the future.


I am so excited to rip Ubisoft a new one later today with y'all. E3 is my Christmas.


I don't think I will ever get used to load times essentially no longer existing.


Platinumgames should remake Lollipop Chainsaw.


I took time off work for Ratchet & Clank and E3....first time in a looong time I took off time for something so stupid. Feels great.


In case anyone is interested, Drawfee has released their annual Pride shirt design. 100% of the profits go to The Trevor Project and the design is pretty great if I do say so. Dropping a link in the comments to the shirt.


Can we bully game publishers/devs into remaking games they fucked up? Because I sure would like Insomniac to take another shot at Overstrike and would like to see Suda51's original idea for Shadows of the Damned (Kurayami) actually get made.


Ratchet & Clank is a week away and my HYPE is acting up.


Biomutant suddenly decided to only respawn me in areas where I will instantly die so I lost the last couple of hours of progress. Between this and one enemy type that's broken and unfun to fight my interest in the game is waning.


So am I the only one who was able to just log into their Disqus account on the front page with no issues?


I'm having a "mentally exhausted" day/week. Got nothing in the tank. Pic unrelated.


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Former Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, Wes's Unofficial Father, and Self-Appointed Supreme High Priest 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 and aspiring writer. 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.
