This is the end

The irony about resigning as a writer for Destructoid, is that here I am, writing an article on Destructoid about not writing for Destructoid anymore...or something. It's been a I guess two-ish years now since I practically begged Nier...

 
 
 
 

Bye bye Dtoid! Leaving my role as a staff writer at the end of the week. Health issues and other stuff...wish you all the best it has been a slice of delicious pie. Take care!

Review: RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore

I was excited for RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore. A Diablo-style action adventure where your main pickups are popsicles and candies, where you can wield a chocolate-covered banana as a weapon, all set in a bright and colorful...

Review: Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro 2

This is a bit of a strange one: a keyboard review on a video game website. Who would have known? But in my time at Destructoid, I have spoken to just as many developers who are fans of the site as I have general readership. They even put us...

Review: T.16000M FCS Hotas

One of my favorite games in the last few years is Elite Dangerous; a boring space trucking simulator which to some is going to be about as fun as filling in an Excel spreadsheet. To me though, it's a kind of magic, spacefaring bliss, a rela...

Review: Marble It Up!

The one thing we need on Switch is a new Super Monkey Ball. Sega has been slumping when it comes to that property; the last one I played was at a Chuck E. Cheese's and was nothing but bad ticket-earning fodder. That's a pale comparison from...

Review: Prison Architect

I like computer books. I have a shelf packed with programming textbooks, stories about the industry, and a library of eBooks on various languages I learn and work with. I also have one oddity published by O'Reily called Getting Started With...

Review: Star Control: Origins

It’s hard to talk about Star Control: Origins without talking about Star Control 2. SC2 is a game extremely near and dear to me. I originally played it on the Panasonic 3DO, that system nobody owned that cost an arm and a leg, where i...

Review: Super Dungeon Tactics

Before I had a house full of kids running around, I used to have game night with friends. One night we sat down with a cool looking board game called Super Dungeon Explore. It reminded me a little of my favorite board game growing up, Hero ...

Review: Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle

My biggest disappointment of 2018 is that I am not able to use the subtitle “Hyakki-Suck” to describe Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle. It really is just a darn shame, but you can’t win ‘em all. I have a little soft s...

The Dragon Quest rhythm game we never got to play

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is one of my favorite Final Fantasy games. I frankly only really enjoy two or three games in the series, so the best part for me is the music. I can’t think of a single game in the series that doesn’t h...

The 3DS might have the better version of Dragon Quest XI

After I spent about a week of frustrated time getting Dragon Quest X to run on my PC, I looked at my collection of Dragon Quest games and was a bit dismayed. I own at least one version of every Dragon Quest game in the main series and a cou...

Review: Holy Diver Collector's Edition

I am ecstatic that I can go online today and buy so many new games for old systems. Just a few years ago, the only options similar to this at least on the NES were reproduction carts – games that either never came out in the west or n...

Review: Mary Skelter: Nightmares

The first-person dungeon crawler transformed for me once I was introduced to Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey on the Nintendo DS. Before SMT, my experience was with ruthlessly difficult titles such as Might and Magic and Wizardry, which ...

Review: Tempest 4000

It is a rare thing that I would ever purchase a console for one game, and it’s usually for some pretty strange titles. Back when Katamari Damacy came out on the PlayStation 2, I bought the game before I even owned the system fearing i...

Review: Horizon Chase Turbo

There are two kinds of people. And maybe sometimes some overlap in between. There are people who think Top Gear is a UK television show where the host punched a man on the face and now is on Amazon Prime instead. And then there are those wh...

Why Tetris is my coping tool for anxiety

(Image courtesy of Cookiemagic) A couple of years ago I took my daughter to a Tetris tournament. It was the first gaming event of any kind for either of us, one held by a local, used video game shop that recently underwent a retooling of ow...

Here is episode 17 of my comic strip GUMFIELD. I think everyone here has been in this predicament at least once in their life. https://gumfield.neocities.org/GUMFIELD17.html

Review: Battlezone: Combat Commander

Detention was my favorite place to be after school. I was a bit of a smart ass back then, which I suppose hasn’t changed much, and my mouth got me into trouble more often than not. I frittered away a lot of my time goofing around, and...

 
 


About Joel Petersonone of us since 8:14 AM on 11.07.2013

I write the things other people don't write, with liberal fart jokes thrown in for good measure. I like old games, old computers, old consoles, and old pizza.


Here are some blogs what I done did and were promoted to the front page.
