New mythical Pokémon actually looks pretty decent


Not sure if anyone here is fussed but Fangamer has some sweet new Battletoads merch available (t-shirts, pins and a hoodie).


So still no release date for that there Panzer Dragoon remake eh? Game announcements, gotta love 'em...


Weird Valentines day. Ended hanging out and playing Pokémon Go with the girl who I was dating a few days back but called it off with. Odd world man.


When you're binge watching a show and the next episode doesn't play for some reason, and then you realise - that was the last one...


How did I miss Samurai Champloo...


Spicy take: Zelda and Metroid are both better when they're 2D.


So, what happened to wifeoftheblues and well, the blues for that matter?


Long post in comments. Life stuff. Not sure what, if any, point I'm trying to make but feel like I need to have it written somewhere to get it off my chest.


Things are pretty bad at the moment. Sorry if I come across as a bit grumpy as of late.


Notifications come back and the first thing I read is that someone reheats McDonald's burgers in a microwave. 2020 is off to a dark start doods...


Apart from Wolf 2 and Hellblade 2 (which is annoyingly an Xbox exclusive)... did anything exciting happen?


Have seriously hurt my back somehow :'(


A single player Star Wars game has broke records. Can we please step away from this games as a service nonsense now?


So a few episodes of My Hero Acadamia has turned into 3:30am... See what you did there anime...


Getting to the point of being single where I'm kinda missing waking up next to someone I like. I really hate dating, specially as most seems to be online. Man, the world of love after Uni is hard.


So, getting back into anime after like 10+ years. Currently watching Beastars and My Hero Acadamia. Any other newish shows I should be paying attention to?


So... They ruined Wailord huh?


I can't imagine playing and finishing Deathstranding in like a few days in order to review it. Game definitely seems to be built for a couple of hours here and there kinda play.


Did Vavle just officially announce the next Half-life on Twitter?


Yo Seymour, talk to me about the Catherine remake if you've played it. Would like to hear your thoughts.


The 22nd Bubble Bobble game (Bubble Bobble 4) is apparently meant to be rather good.


Yo. Read my blog because it's quite personal and I'm getting anxious people think I'm weird. https://www.destructoid.com/--571754.phtml#post Have a good day.


It's been a long time since I've really touched manga/anime, but man, read through like 158 chapters of Beastars in like 3 nights.


About Goemarone of us since 12:05 AM on 06.27.2017

I started as a massive Nintendo fan. I had a SNES before, but it was really the N64 I got on my 10th birthday that really got me into gaming. I stuck with Nintendo pretty much exclusively until the DS rolled out and I played NSMB - man I hated that game. It looked awful, sounded awful and was so easy it was hardly worth paying attention to what you were doing.

The PSP and Monster Hunter stole away hundreds of hours of life and that's when I really started to look at Sony. I had missed great games like Okami, God of War (it was cool at the time), Gradius V and Metal Gear Solid

With the promise of Metal Gear Solid and Monster Hunter on the PS3 I snagged one as soon as I was able. In the long wait (and Monster Hunter jumping to Nintendo...) I picked up Uncharted. My god, what a game! And more followed - Uncharted 2 was excellent, Catherine, Rayman Origins, The Last of Us - man the PS3 was amazing. Yes I still played the 'essential' Nintendo titles (and spent hours on my 3DS when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate landed - and 100s more on Generations) but the PlayStation had become my main shabang for modern gaming.

I'm also a huge retro fan. Having loved the games I played as a kid, and discovering the earlier titles in franchises I loved - but it was really when I got into sprite ripping and the world of emulation that I truly discovered all there was out there on offer.

Top 10 Games:

Metal Slug X
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Frogs and Flies
Doom (2016)
Valiant Hearts
Day of the Tentacle
