Super Mario Odyssey is so great! So much to do, to find, to explore, to play with! Finally I can break my mobile addic- *FEHeroes Book II releasing in 9 days* *Morbid curiosity for Sonic Forces Speed Battle increases*


 
 
 

Overstuffed: Back to the Daily Grind

Level grinding is a very curious thing. Many times critics refer to grinding in RPGs, it’s a complaint. Yet grinding has remained a staple mechanic of effectively every game within the genre, and even several games outside of it...

 
 
 
 

Time to start stepping forward. Just made some big changes to my Destructoid sidebar, among other things. Thankfully, I have my response to the monthly Blogger's Wanted prompt going live in approximately... three hours!

 
 
 

Why Do People Enjoy Yet Loathe Gacha Games?

Clickbait proof: I hate exploitative practices in freemium games. I only advocate playing these games spending a budget comparable to an MMO subscription, if not less (actually always less). I do not consider microtransactions exploit...

 
 
 
 

Whoa whoa whoa... this is real? This isn't sci-fi? Did anything from sci-fi even suggest the future would let us print freaking HOUSES!?



 
 
 
 

Hooooo boy... today's gonna be a doozy. Job interview in two hours, but I'm also working on my most controversial blog... ever, probably. I promised to write why I like these kinds of games, and I will... while tackling their huge ethical issues head on.


 
 
 

Wait a sec... Sonic Mania and Forces have SURVEYS?

 
 
 

Bump for my blog from this morning! Continuing the retrospective I started last month, I ramble about Mario's two biggest releases on the Nintendo Gamecube. I got a lot I like about them, but also a little... well... you know... THAT part of Sunshine...

 
 
 

Super Mario Retrospective: Gaming Cubed

It's Freedom Like You Never Knew Ohsnap, I forgot to mention I also played Super Mario Bros 2 on NES during the first entry of this series! I guess part of why is that I don’t have many strong memories of that game. It’s a ...

 
 
 
 

Happy birthday to our DeadMoon! Er... happy death-day?

 
 
 

Gotta say, knowing how self-aware the Sonic Twitter is... there's NO WAY Sega can't notice the huge dividing line in reception between Mania and Forces. I'm curious to see whatever happens as a result... with fingers crossed.

 
 
 

I don't know why I keep thinking qposts function similarly to Tweets but I need to get that into my head. QPosts do not. Use. Line breaks.

 
 
 

Me: I need to clear my backlog of blog ideas while I job search Myself: *brainstorms more blog ideas* I: Thanks, I needed more backlog

 
 
 

Sonic's Identity Crisis: A Mad Dash

Live and Learn... Hanging On the Edge of Tomorrow Sonic’s history is a troubled one. You don’t need me to tell you that, but I do need to tell you that’s what this blog is focused on today. At first, the little hedgeh...

Overcoming Fear: Knowledge is Power

Despite what I said yesterday, I have another big blog currently in the works! May or may not be done until next week, though... it's getting MUCH more huge than I anticipated...

 
 
 

I need to slow down on CBlogs so I can focus harder on more productive things. I will keep CBlogging multiple times a month, I promise that, it's still one of my personal goals. But I'm afraid I've been neglecting job searching too much since I joined...

Three days... three days until the promised time is upon us. I will become one with the Odyssey.

 
 
 

Super Mario Retrospective: Superhero Origin Story

About Cedione of us since 8:03 PM on 07.31.2017

Yo! My real name is Christopher, but you can call me Cedi here! Obligatory disclaimer; my avatar and banner is art I commissioned Twitter user @kaizer33226 to make. Check him out if you have the time, he’s awesome.

I’m a longtime gamer who loves to write about a lot of things, but especially games. Transparency and honesty are my foremost virtues in anything I do. I first began blogging on Destructoid with the primary goal of building a portfolio to be hired as a professional journalist. Even after I built up a respectable lineup of blogs, I keep blogging for the Destructoid community as my way of returning the favor for all they've done to help me discover and sustain my passion for informative writing! Well, that and to improve my portfolio further while I keep job searching. Also it's just plain fun! My dream job would be to get hired to make front page articles for Destructoid, so I can produce more content for this site than I already do, but I'll keep improving my skills in the meantime!

As far as social media is concerned, you can find me on my professional Twitter account, or my personal Twitter account! Fair advice, you can expect to see a lot more of the character in my avatar if you check out my personal Twitter. Whether that's a warning or a recommendation depends on how you feel about giant, muscular insects with shonen anime ideologies.

Throughout my blogs, I aim to explain and promote my enthusiasm for games, while studying their positive and negative qualities with a critical eye. Want to see what I mean? Check out my promoted blogs! Still want more? Take a gander at some of my personal favorite blogs below!
