hey look at my haircut also still working on the water level thing, promise


 
 
 

Gonna need a bit more time with the water level blog, ended up getting longer than I expected. I wanted to publish tonight, but it needs more time in the oven- should hopefully be done tomorrow night, Wednesday at the latest.

 
 
 
 

on monday im going to defend one of the most hated things in gaming. bonus points for the person who figures out what it is.

 
 
 
 
 

i swear i'll do another blog post eventually...but it probably won't be ANY of the ones i've teased.

 
 
 

Ya'll reaaaaaaaaally missed the point of that last post. I wasn't condoning what Nintendo has been doing, I was saying that emulation and piracy aren't the same thing. 'Cause they aren't. It'd be a really huge story if emulation were actually in danger.

 
 
 

It's time to stop saying "emulators" when you mean "illegally-hosted ROMs and ISOs". There is a real, significant difference.

 
 
 

wonder what ol' OpiumHerz would think about Germany lifting the ban on Nazi symbolism in video games?

 
 
 

Next blog, I'll be tackling, among other titles, Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, Smash Bros. Melee and Icons: Combat Arena. What do these games have in common? How can I combine these different experiences into a cohesive piece? Find out soon, hopefully!

 
 
 

Have a few ideas for my next post. Which of the following would you guys want first? The Curious Case of Cemu Emulator, Airman Ga Taosenai and Difficulty in Gaming, or Why People Are Still Playing Team Fortress 2, 11 Years Later?

 
 
 

Got my first front page post today, feeling pretty proud of myself. Gonna keep pushing the quality of my work so I can get more of them.

If you enjoyed my blog on Shovel Knight and delayed appreciation, ya'll should know that I'll be posting a much longer blog on Monday about Hotline Miami 2 and death. It's gonna get real in-depth and personal, but I'm hoping the effort shows!

 
 
 
 
 

I can't post blogs because DToid thinks I'm a bot. Anyone else having this problem?

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix Announced!

Never underestimate how feverishly I watch for Kingdom Hearts news. Anyways, this article is primarily serving as a placeholder until Destructoid inevitably one-ups me and posts another. Regardless, I'm gonna skip to the basics as to wh...

 
 
 
 

Episodic Development: Why and Why Not

Hideo Kojima recently said that the next-gen may switch to a more episodic format to compensate for rising development costs. I'm not going to conflict this claim- he's the dev, not me. I don't know how much money and time and resources it...
