ARMS' new character is a slightly more anthropomorphic version of Flubber

Flubber? Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man? Slimer from Ghostbusters? This dude reminds me of many things (even Bemax from Big Hero 6 for some reason), but this stretchy green weirdo is none of those. No, his name is Helix, lik...   read

Review: Little Nightmares

It's been while since a game has ensnared me like this. Where lesser games struggle for my attention as I routinely check the clock and put on podcasts, Little Nightmares hypnotized me with ever-present suspense. Your main goal in this puzz...   read

Oh boy, Akiba's Beat's English dub is atrocious

Here I was starting to think people take game roles more seriously when this new Akiba's Beat story trailer came along and slapped me in the face. Its predecessor, Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed, also had a pathetic English dub, but si...   read

NieR: Automata surpasses 300,000 sales in Japan

Drakengard and even the original Nier were so niche it's still a little surprising to see how successful NieR: Automata has become. Even Persona was a humble spin-off series that is now a global blockbuster. The stigma a...   read

About Cory Arnoldone of us since 11:17 AM on 08.07.2016

Definitely-not-a-weaboo Japan-based Destructoid writer.
Just a dude in his 20's trying to accomplish his dreams:
-Move in Japan: Check
-Attain fluency in Japanese: Preparing to smash the N2
-Travel the World. Next in mind: Russia, India, Germany, Israel, Eastern Europe
-Complete my massive backlog of movies and games: In progress
-Become a game journalist: Initiated



I like to tell myself I have OCD, which is one reason I obsessively try to visit as many countries around the world as possible and want to play every significant or at least well-received game out there (same goes for movies). I spend most of my free-time trying to clear those backlogs while also trying to obsessively learn as much about games in particular through various sources.



When I'm not busy overloading my brain with game stuff I'm watching (college) sports, traveling, and trying quirky new things in Japan like visiting owl cafes. I also contribute at Gematsu.
