Been wrestling with a funk this week, but I finally managed to find a way out of it, and I'm already feeling much better! Even better, I've got a new and unusual idea for a blog I'm working on now thanks to that~


So has anyone else noticed that the control scheme for Persona dancing games is pretty similar, albeit not identical, to that of Samba De Amigo? (Second image for comparison in comments)


Gravity Rush 2's online services are getting extended for half a year!? Nice! Now I'll probably be able to get all of the Dusty Token loot!


Dubs vs Subs: War of the Words

You Flaming Idiots! The Internet is iconic for being a battlefield of opposing opinions. My motto is that as long as they don’t hurt anyone, it’s great to have contrasting thoughts and to respectfully debate them! But we a...


Super Mario Retrospective: Dimension Jumping

Jump up, don’t be scared The transition from 2D to 3D is a trial that countless video game mascots, but especially platformers, stumbled upon with the rise of polygonal graphics. Sonic landed decently enough at the time, but his...


The sick is gone! I am free! FREEEEE!


Launching My Patreon With a Side of Ko-Fi!

To say that last month was a clusterfudge for Patreon would be an understatement. I discussed it already in quickposts and blogs, but to summarize what happened and the final result of those happenings… Around Dec. 6th, Patreo...


My body is mostly ready to stop being sick!


Hey ya know those plans I said I'd finalize yesterday and today? Sick is getting worse. Much worse. D:


In between job hunting, getting badly sick, the holidays, and work being extra exhausting in the cold weather, I've not published many blogs recently... but I've got several works in progress! In the meantime, I have plans to finalize today & tommorrow...


New Year's Resolution: Get a job. I mean, I'm already employed part time at the supermarket, but if I could finally either get a second part time job I'd actually enjoy and/or get a full time job to replace the supermarket one, that'd be great!


Review: Tales of the Rays

The mobile market is oversaturated with freemium RPGs. The foundations of the gashapon model, while not inherently malicious, are capable of sliding off the slippery slope so easily that it’s been exploited by countless companie...


Romancing SaGa 2 remake comes out today... but I'm on a budget... but it's 10 days until Christmas... but I'm gonna get so many other games... but HYPE... D:


Huh... Patreon's actually backpedaling on their fee change! I need to reconsider whether I still would like to join the platform as a creator or not, but if nothing else, I'm relieved and glad for the countless creators already on there.


I've decided to nix becoming a Patreon creator and instead wait for alternative platforms, but there's still no such option open to meyet... but there IS Ko-Fi. I could maybe set up rewards similar to my Patreon plans based on Ko-Fi payments. Thoughts?


Still not feeling 100%, but doing much better today! I should celebrate by catching up with the MonHun Beta...


Coughing fits are keeping me up all night. This has been going on for a week. Was at its worst last night. Going to doctor again today. Hoping for more good news than bad news by the time the visit is over.


Super Mario Retrospective: A Sporty Look

You could say my hat is off to you Within a handful of years after his debut, Mario exploded into the most popular video game franchise of his time… mostly because he’s responsible for the explosion of the video game indu...


Since Destructoid had a bad case of the hiccups at the time, bump for my blog from last week? It's where I give some belated Thanksgiving thanks, as well as share my plans for the new year! https://www.destructoid.com/--474898.phtml#post


I can't believe it. I was so nervous when I first wrote that blog about gacha games. Now it's on the front page. A BILLION YEARS OF MOTHS TO HUG YOU ALL

Overstuffed: Back to the daily grind

[As he is often wont to do, Cedi gets at the subject of overstuffing one's self in games with the thought and analysis worthy of a scientific journal. Today's topic: Grinding in RPGs/mobile games! Do you, like Cedi and countless others, fin...


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. Also, I backed Kirbopher/Chris Niosi's TOME RPG on Kickstarter!

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!
