I swear I'm the worst at finishing games. I've yet to beat Death of the Outsider, Hollow Knight, Super Mario 64 AND Prey, even though I'm a significant portion through all of them. Ugh.

 
 
 

Winner winner, i'm hungry someone make me dinner


 
 
 
 

I tried to like Yuri! On Ice. I really did. But the OP, the dialogue, the terrible writing and some really bad musical choices totally turned me off. All the boys are real cute though.


 
 
 

Chris Rocks new stand-up special is a splendid return to form, and one with more honesty than people were probably expecting. I'd highly recommend checking out "Tamborine" if you've got an hour to spare.

Review: Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed is the final chapter in a franchise that has been solemnly focused on one thing. No, not the bondage or the S&M, though those do play a crucial role in dressing up (or stripping down) the focal-point of this series...

 
 
 

I'm playing Super Mario 64 for the first time. I've played zero mainline Mario games, well, besides 3D World and Land, but those don't have the sandbox elements that make the great Mario games so great. Wish me luck!


 
 
 

21 was fun, but 22 is what's new! I think I'll celebrate my birthday by doing some catching up with last years games, specifically Hollow Knight. I love the exploring, and the moody world with cute, sad characters sprinkled everywhere.

 
 
 

Well, I told all of you my favorite movies from 2017. What were yours?

Drew Stuart's favorite films of 2017

[Ed. Note: We do awards a bit different at Flixist. Most of our writers do not get early screenings or award screeners of movies, which means it isn't easy to see some of the films that only get limited releases in December for many of us. ...

John Cena in negotiations to star in Duke Nukem movie

Well, color me surprised. According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Cena is in talks to star as Duke Nukem in an upcoming film adaption of the '90s FPS franchise. Yeah, you heard that right. The film was originally going to be made by Dimen...

Night in the Woods is coming to the Switch

In a time where indie games are pouring onto the Switch, you can now count one more fantastic game among their numbers. Night in the Woods is coming to the Nintendo Switch on Feb. 1, 2018. Developer Infinite Fall announced the news on Twitt...

 
 
 

I'm ecstatic that Dtoid is running faster than ever. The speeds it loaded at dampened my interest in posting and commenting for a while, but hey, now seems the time to get back at it. Love yall ;)

 
 
 

Man, I played Civilization V for the first time a few days ago, and I've already wasted 25 hours over multiple games. I had no idea it would so engaging. Mostly because Germany kept attacking me. Fuck you, Bismark.


 
 
 

FINALLY watched Your Name and it was fantastic. One of the best films (not confined to Anime) I've seen in a long, long time.

And the most played Nintendo Switch games are...

Hey, listen, Nintendo of America has released a ranking of the Nintendo Switch's most played games since the system launched back in March. The list is filled with a plethora of Nintendo's first-party titles, but several indie titles and po...

Review: Insidious: The Last Key

There’s a fatal flaw that’s lodged in every good horror franchise: sooner or later, their quality begins to drop exponentially. Saw was a great film, but Saw IV? What about Paranormal Activity, and each entry...

Animaniacs is getting two new seasons courtesy of Hulu

Well, I was wrong. Back in May, we heard that Animaniacs was looking to make a comeback, with both Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation on board for its revival. I was sure they would pick Netflix, but it looks like&n...

 
 
 

The endless stairs in Metal Gear Solid have me drinking bleach. I got so furious I slammed my PS3 controller into my phone (accidentally) and put a small crack in the screen. Ughh

Review: Black Mirror (Season 4)

We live in a time of fear. Fear of other people, fear of our government. We’re afraid of where we are, but more than that, we are terrified of where we are going. We can hardly predict what will happen in a given year, and technolo...

 
 
 

Spent the day playing Metal Gear Solid with my girlfriend! :) She hates almost all the women we've encountered so far lol.

 
 
 

My new keyboard will increase my gaming satisfaction tenfold.

How Star Wars: The Last Jedi fumbles its potential

(Editors Note: We've had two pretty glowing takes on The Last Jedi, found here and here, so Drew offered to provide a counterpoint to those.) Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a puzzling movie. Not because it’s mysterious, or full of s...

 
 
 

I didn't like The Last Jedi as much as I thought I might. A few good moments, but riddled with problems, good ideas, and lacking the character that makes Star Wars, Star Wars. 6/10. I'll post my extended thoughts tomorrow.


 
 
 

Wolfenstein II was great! The story was deeply memorable and interesting, and the gameplay was a step up from The New Order. But holy hell, that's the most difficult "normal" difficulty I've ever played.

 
 


About Drew Stuart one of us since 3:19 AM on 12.22.2015

Drew Stuart (aka, Load of Bollocks) is a writer, thinker, hijinker...and uh, sandwich maker? He is a writer for both Destructoid and Flixist, and loves to tell jokes. Sometimes they're good.

When he isn't writing online, Drew's pursuing his Journalism degree at College. He wants to get into Games Journalism full time once he graduates, so that he can type loudly and sit proudly at his desk.

Writing in third person is weird. I can't keep this up.


This beauty was created by the always wonderful Daangus Targus

Look, I'm a gamer from Washington who loves to write and will pursue it to the ends of the earth. I'm way into FPS', RPG's, and a few flavors in between. I have a nostalgic love for 3D Platformers from the turn of the century too!

Here's a list of my favorite games in no particular order.

Metal Gear Solid 3
Dark Souls
Bloodborne
Banjo Kazooie
Fallout: New Vegas
Half Life 2
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
Castle Crashers
Halo 3
Mass Effect 2
The Witcher III
Pillars of Eternity
Yoshi's Island
Donkey Kong 64
Resident Evil 4
