A toy that encouraged you to destroy your parents' floor trim. All of these guys are in my parents' basement now in varying states of destroyed. I still remember the day we got them. I would have been, like, 3 or 4 at the time. #childhoodtoytoid


I've had this review of River City Girls done for a while, but then stuff happened and it never got posted. So here it is now!


Review: Best Friend Forever

For the last couple of months, dating sims have been my jam. It was only a matter of time before I stepped up to the plate for Destructoid and gave one a proper scrutinizing. Best Friend Forever is the game being pitched in my direction, an...


I used to know an arrangement of this on my ukulele and spent many an evening of depression lying on the floor, plucking this song out, and plaintively singing along. #sadsongsunday


Now that my review for Best Friend Forever has been posted, I can show off some of the glitches I mentioned in it. This one had me giggling the most, but I'll post another one in the comments.


I think some misunderstand, my Dating Adzuken articles are for people who DON'T have an interest in dating sims. Today's entry, True Love, is more about history and nakedness.


Gosh, searching for a new dating sim on Steam is a whole new level of dangerous. It quickly goes from, "Oh, this looks cute," to immediately backing out of the store page.


If I keep reviewing ecchi games like KukkoroDay, someone's going to start thinking I'm a pervert. But I swear, I only play them for their cute love stories. You believe me, right?


Oh, right. I was trying to make #sadsongsunday a thing. You can't throw a rock at Elliot Smith's discography without hitting something heartbreaking. But perhaps the saddest songs were released after he committed suicide.


Review: Phoenotopia Awakening

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link was a massive departure from the original title. More linear, carefully metered progress, and with more RPG elements. It bore few similarities to its predecessor with its unique mix of top-down overworld expl...


My dating experience goes catastrophically wrong in this week's Dating Adzuken. This time it's all Nicole's fault.


I bumped into a fellow community member in the street yesterday, but they were being responsible and wearing a mask, so I didn't recognize them. If this is you in the picture, just know that I wasn't trying to ignore you, I was just in a hurry.


I've spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours in Tamriel, and have never been as miserable as I've been in Elder Scrolls: Blades. This review is a chronicle of my pain.


Review: Lost Wing

I’m something of a cheerleader for rail shooters. I feel the sub-genre has still gone largely untapped, and that it’s a formula the indie market could really make work. Lost Wing is something like that. However, I’m also a...


Just going to keep this in my back pocket for next year's Pride Month.


My husband and I; we’re adults.


For this week's Dating Adzuken, I go back to magic school in Iris School of Wizardry. And then things just go all kinds of screwy.


This is the game's very first dialogue option, and it really gets straight to the point.


These days, I've been looking forward more to my Thursday dating articles. But it's Monday, so here's a review for Game Dev Story. Which, I guess is, like, a retro review now.


Review: Merchant of the Skies

I’ve been a merchant of a lot of things. The Elite series allowed me to be a space trader, Euro Truck Simulator let me try my hand at terrestrial trade, and Wall Street Kid had me trading stocks directly. Now it’s time for Merc...


I don't normally like to spoil anything from my future articles, but this image was burned into my brain and now you must suffer too.


I’ll join in the #shoetoid festivities. They aren’t anything special, but they go well with my dresses.


Today's Dating Adzuken is about a game that is, like, 45 minutes long. Which is roughly how long most of my previous relationships lasted. Anyway, here's Pyrite Heart.


Continuing the theme of romance on my blog with this review of Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour. I keep wanting to say 40th anniversary, but I'm not that old.
