Travel to the 32th zone in Sunsoft's Atlantis no Nazo

Part of what draws me to Famicom games is the fact that I missed out entirely on the culture around it. Not only am I of an age that would have given the Super Famicom more significance, but -- and this may shock you -- I’m not Japane...

My forbidden love of Chulip and the weirdness of mundanity

I’m going to be honest with you, the advice I usually give people who are looking to give Chulip a try is to make sure you have something nearby to read. Chulip is an unfriendly game, and among its unfriendly features is a nasty littl...

 
 
 

It's entirely my intention to keep updating the Game Complaint Department even though Destructoid is now my primary home. Anyway, here's a review for La-Mulana, a game that likes to hurt me.


 
 
 

This time of year always gets me feeling nostalgic about my trip to Japan. Hard to believe it was 7 years ago. It's also hard to believe I once had enough money to travel.


 
 
 
 

Oh, he's a good boy! He deserves ALL the butter!
