Pump U Up #2 - Kirby's Return To Dreamland

This is a newer title, so I was kind of wary about writing about it. This is supposed to be a series more about obscure Wii titles, and Kirby games are anything but. The reception for this game was fantastic, I have heard sales were decen...

 
 
 
 

Mother 2 (Earthbound)

Mother 2, also known as Earthbound, is easily my favorite RPG of all time. Yes, more than Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, or even Granstream Saga...wait, Granstream Saga? Get out of here, you, I meant to say Dragon Quest. Anyways, it'...

 
 
 
 

What to Expect When You`re Expecting (Ecco 3)

So recently, something or other, blah blah, ECCO 3. Last week, Ed Annunziata, the man with the impossible name to remember the correct spelling of and the creator of Ecco the Dolphin, announced on Twitter that he would be meeting with Sega ...

 
 
 
 

The Wii Pump Up Report - #1 Ivy The Kiwi?

What is the Wii Pump Up Report you might not be asking? Well, I'm gonna tell you anyways; I'm super pumped for the Wii U. Got my pre-order in and everything. But there are a lot of folks who aren't as excited. The Wii has come and gone li...

 
 
 
 

Screw you, Lucas.

Yeah, I'm talking to you. You trilogy peddling bastard. I grew up with the Star Wars franchise, and it is probably the only thing from my childhood which I have become so disenfranchised with. Do you see what I did there? DO YOU UNDERSTAND...

 
 
 
 

Why I'm Buying Wii U

Sick as a dog yesterday. Headache, cold, aches, no good. I was rooting through a bunch of my old shit to see if I could find something fun to do. Over the last couple of months I have been studying Japanese; an activity that takes up a ma...

 
 
 
 

Bulk Bin Episode 1: The Final Chapter

Oh snap, did your Destructoid C-Blog page get set to "shuffle" by mistake? Did everything get all mixed up and random? Do you even know what I'm talking about CAUSE I DON'T Here is a picture of an ad I remembered that I found when lookin...

 
 
 
 

Issues

No, my issues aren't about corn. I am definitely pro corn. If I have learned one thing this week, it's that gamers issues matter; there are now a lot of us. Too many to properly pigeonhole or categorize, from all different walks of life....

 
 
 
 

A Quickie on EVE

I have been hopelessly addicted to EVE online the past week. You always hear about it, maybe you download the trial and decide you are too "lost in space" to get a grip on things, but this time, I payed money for it; I bought the game an...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Cult of Personality

I live in a big city now, and have since I was a teenager. But before coming here after my parents went through a messy divorce, I lived in a little northern town in the middle of the woods. There wasn't a lot to do, and I was ostracize...

 
 
 
 

Next-Gen: The War of Independants

One of my favorite moments from The Sopranos is when "the family" is talking about the hurting economy, and how it is adversely affecting their profits. Tony Soprano asks Silvio Dante which two businesses are recession proof, to which he re...

 
 
 
 

An Aside About Blogging, Writing, and Reading.

I learned to read the other day. Since I was barely a fetus ejected out of my mothers vagina, I have been playing with books. Quite literally playing, when I was young; biting the corners of thick cardboard pages which lead to my inevitabl...

 
 
 
 

Terror

Sometimes I sit and look around at this mess of life I have created for myself. I start to feel very self loathing; there is something pretentious in me that believes I was meant for something more than I have achieved. I have a loving wife...

 
 
 
 

Faust 64

The tale of Faust is one deep seated in Germanic folklore; a successful scholar, Faust had a thirst for knowledge which led to him making a deal with the devil, one where he exchanged his eternal soul for the gift of unlimited knowledge. Th...

 
 
 
 

My Dream Game: Squad Leader

Who hasn't sat there and imagined at one point in their life, what kind of game they would like to see on the market? When I was a kid, my stupid cousins and I (yes, also stupid) would imagine what kind of video games we wanted to see, and ...

 
 
 
 

Diablo and Torchlight

Diablo III is a good game; don't let its detractors fool you. I found it a little laughable for IGN to claim it was "well worth the wait" in every regard in their review, choosing to systematically exclude some major issues the game is havi...

 
 
 
 

Dwarf Fortress

It's funny; in all the times I have written something about the game Dwarf Fortress, not once have I actually sat down and really talked about the game itself, why it is so addicting, and why you should stop reading this immediately and go ...

 
 
 
 

Losing is Fun

When you have a child, you very quickly learn a fundamental, ugly truth about other people; they really do believe that they are right one hundred percent of the time, and that most importantly, you are probably wrong. There is no greater ...

 
 
 
 

Dude, I Totally Miss You

Life blows sometimes. My mid life crisis happened at 26 when I got real scared of impending reality, and bought a modded Turbografx-16. I didn't fuck anyone behind my wifes back, unless you count humping a dry shampoo bottle while crying "m...

 
 
 
 

The Shrill Cry of Spoiled Consumers

People. Actually, I think that's about as clever as I'm willing to be this morning; that word basically speaks for itself these days. While a legion of goofballs cried all week long about how some 3D space RPG didn't end in the way they...

 
 
 
 

Rave Reviews

Thanks to LightForceJedi's illuminating reviews which, thankfully, keep on coming by the dozen, I am now informed about several games inside and out that I otherwise would not have been. Please keep filling up the community blogs with the...

 
 
 
 

iRant 1.0: Women X Men

Begin rant. Wow. What a bunch of unbelievable nonsense lately. From the Bioware controversy over Jennifer Hepler, to the debated harassment of Super Yan during some pointless tournament nobody with a life could possibly give two shits abou...

 
 
 
 

Weapon of Choice

I'm fat. There is no follow up joke to that, it's true. And sometimes, it really sucks. You can't walk for too long before getting tired, it's hard to find pants that fit you, and it's getting really difficult to lean down to pick up that ...

 
 
 


About TheManchildone of us since 2:03 PM on 08.10.2011

HIRE ME GAME INDUSTRY. HIRE ME YOU MOTHERFUCKERS.

I am an aging man with starving children. I write blogs about video games. My favorite system is the Game Boy. I have three of them in my house; one in the shitter, one by my computer, and one in my pocket.

My aspiration in life is to not die. Runner up is writing and creating random bullshit related to my only hobby, which is games. I guess I read books too. But nobody cares about OLD MAN hobbies like that, so get outta town, GRANDPA!

My favorite game is Ecco the Dolphin. I like to speedrun it because it makes me feel like a big man, except when the credits run, which is where I usually reflect sadly upon the rest of my life. I love dick jokes and farts. Dickfarts.

I want to write for Destructoid some day, but the staff here are too smart to hire me. I need to find a clever way to trick a legitimate enthusiast site to pay me a small amount of money to do something for them or I can never happy.

But even then, I probably still won't be happy.

Such is life.
