I wrote a blog about all the crowdfunding campaigns I participated in. It's long. If you have the time, and are inclined to do so, please check it out. Link in the comments. #ShamelessPlug


Oh hey my crowdfunding blog finally got published. Thanks to Wes for getting it pushed through! And now the plug: Hey I wrote a blog about my experience with crowdfunding (mostly Kickstarter). Give it a look if you would. BUMPED with proper credit for Wes


My Personal Experience with Crowdfunding

The public opinion on crowdfunding is divisive, at best. Some people are completely against it and oppose it wholesale. I don’t agree with these people, but I can understand where they are coming from. There are several high profile ...


I wrote a blog and for some reason it won't let me publish it. I keep getting a 404 error. I don't know if I somehow triggered a filter or something but it won't let me take it from hidden into public. It's not the next Book of the Month, that one worked.


Just got back home from seeing Black Panther with my 2 best buds. Great movie with amazing choreography, costume design, and action scenes. Villain was great, if a bit underdeveloped. Overall though, I enjoyed it a lot and would gladly watch it again.


So the next Book of the Month has a cover that is NSFW. What exactly are the rules regarding such things in cblogs? I've tried to find a censored version, but it does not appear to exist. I'd like to include the cover, but I'd like to not violate ToS.


So Google removed their "view image" button to get a lawsuit against them dropped. So getting images in their original quality off Google Images is now basically impossible without workaround extensions.


Pillow window shopping, found something awesome.


I've never really paid much attention to this show, but somehow I stumble onto this. Tom Holland's talent is wasted on Spider-Man, he was meant to be a pop star diva.


Also I bumped this month's Book of the Month blog to make it easier to find. Just a friendly reminder this month's book is Not Quite the Classics by Colin Mochrie. Link to the blog in the comments, or you can just click it over at the right cblog bar.


Book of the Month - Not Quite the Classics

Bumping this mid-month to make it easier to find. Time for yet another installment of Destructoid’s Unofficial Book of the Month. It’s been quite the experience for me thus far and I hope for all of you who have supported ...


If I had a band, I would want one like my favorite band, Ludo. Alt-rockish, with a dark twist of humor. Every song would tell a story. #ifihadabandtoid


I'm not even the least bit surprised honestly.


I grew out of Yugioh a long time ago, but this video stirred some strong nostalgia in me. And I have considered buying some Yugioh packs just to see what I'd get for a while...


I just saw the Venom Teaser Trailer and I have a question. I'm putting it in the comments in case anyone is avoiding trailers.


I really need to finish Nier: Automata and play the original Nier.


It's a new month and that means a new Book of the Month. This time I'm spotlighting an anthology book written by Whose Line is it Anyway's Colin Mochrie. BUMP #2


Another community shoutout to all the mods, the cblog recappers, the community managers, the COTW contributers, Chris Moyse our community interviewer, Papa Niero, and our Canadian Overlords for everything they do for this site. Thank you!


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Current Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, and Self-Appointed Grand Duke Viceroy of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer, aspiring writer, and a big fan of dark, offbeat humor. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
