Bloggers Wanted: The Adaptation

Some things don't belong in this world and yet they are conjured time and again by humans that wish to pay them tribute. A video game, book, comic or TV show becomes popular and later becomes adapted to another medium entirely or, worse, a ...

A second opinion on Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

[Chris already gave us his thoughts on Stormblood, but now that early access has cooled a bit, here's another opinion.] To say Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood caught the eye of newcomers, intermediate and advanced players alike might be an un...

Bloggers Wanted: Changes

These days, the game you buy at launch may not be the game you have months or years after release. For multiplayer titles, this is almost to be expected, even before the internet was something everyone had access to, you had fighting games ...

So let's talk about Hainly Abrams from Mass Effect: Andromeda

Usually, when looking over my Dtoid emails, I'm content to watch the main staff do their thing. This includes controversial topics that I must later brace myself to help moderate alongside the rest of the community team, so it's rare that I...

Bloggers Wanted: First kiss

We'll always remember our first time. Sometimes it can be the best experience we ever had, opening our eyes to things we had never known. The sound of an ocarina. That time heroic moogles came to your rescue. Or maybe you found yourself mos...

Pixie's favorite gaming memories of 2016

Given I finally jumped on the 8th gen bandwagon late in October 2016, I couldn't fairly say I've played each game released in 2016 to completion. For one thing, when I get a new PlayStation console, playing the latest Metal Gear Solid game ...

Bloggers Wanted: Rituals

Each year, it seems that I find myself pulled to the drawbridge of a vampire's castle, drawn again to descending the depths of a dead alien planet, or that I find myself in a post-apocalyptic hellscape where angels and demons are at war. So...

Occamsdex: Shin Megami Tensei compendium edition

Ever since we came up with the idea for Occamsdex, I have been looking for the excuse to do a Shin Megami Tensei entry, as it is my favorite RPG series. Besides, what would you expect from someone that named themselves after Pixie the ...

Occamsdex: No Man's Sky edition

No Man's Sky -- it is either a game where you explore a series of procedurally-generated worlds or it's a name that incites rage over shattered dreams and sits on a vile throne of heinous lies. Having dabbled in roguelikes a fair bit over t...

What are your weirdest discoveries in No Man's Sky?

Have you heard of Occamsdex? It's a little feature the Dtoid community team has been doing of late where we basically tie down fellow community manager Occams and get him to interpret the origins and behaviors of Pokémon, monsters,&n...

Occamsdex: Monster Hunter edition

For the last few weeks, at least half of the community team has been happily grinding away in the various locales of Monster Hunter Generations. In our travels, Strider and I have seen a great many things. We have gathered resources, befrie...

Bloggers Wanted: Keep it classy

As many of you know, I'm all about the latest, hottest, class-based games. Yep, you guessed it. I'm playing that game -- the one all the cool kids are playing and the Destructoid staff posts about at least nine times each day. You can't eve...

Bloggers Wanted: Initiation Station

Character creation is a feature that fascinates me a great deal. It's one of those things you can put nothing or everything into, and is something everyone approaches differently. While some players might stick with the default setting and ...

Bloggers Wanted: Waifu Wars

A few months back, a war broke out in the Dtoid quickpost section. It was, quite simply, a war of the waifus. User after user was either proclaiming their love for a particular game lady or telling each other why their "best girl" or guy wa...

Community Replay: Final Fantasy VII

Welcome to Community Replay! For a while now, I've wanted to open up a community "book club" of sorts that could also act as a companion or alternative to "Bloggers Wanted," but one that goes in the opposite direction. Instead of offering u...

Pixie's portable picks for Game of the Year 2015

Okay, it's high time I do one of these GOTY listicle things so I can move on with 2016 and go back to playing old stuff. Given I'm primarily a handheld player, I spend much of my time playing a decent mix of old and new games as well as re-...

Bloggers Wanted: They call me spooky

October is a rarity among months in gaming. Often, you can't really think of a good game to pair with Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter, but you can certainly think of games for Halloween. It's a time we turn our thoughts to monsters, ghost...

Bloggers Wanted: Those meddling kids

Everyone wants a better life. Some people might take shortcuts, like robbing a bank, to get to there. Perhaps you discovered an amazing ability that made your life more interesting and decided to use that ability to your advantage. Or maybe...

Pixiedust #1: Hello!

I should probably be working on the monthly recap right now, but I'm still a bit under the weather and off my sleep cycle. You can expect it to be up in the community blogs sometime soon. That said, I thought I'd take a page from Strider an...

Bloggers Wanted: Better with age

Each time a new Metal Gear Solid draws closer to release, I find myself replaying the games that came before it. Some of this is done to refresh my memory on the story (which there is a lot of), but I also like getting to experience the pro...
