Me as an author? It's more likely than you think!

This is the most important blog I've ever written. All the other ones I've done here are but puddles of piss next to this mighty ocean of... lemonade or whatever. While everything else was fun to write and helped me engage with this de...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

TGIF Open Thread!

Good morning Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday! My week went fast and almost so smoothly. Almost. Yesterday was the absolute worst day at my job at the hospital. I had to cover all day in the ER due to an ...

It's that time once again, folks. Sonic Hacking Contest 2020 is almost here and I am very excited for it! You might be wondering: "Kazama, what is the Sonic Hacking Contest? What's so great about it?" Well, I'll tell you, good sir! The...

 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 22: Temples

Dungeons in Zelda games have changed greatly though the years. While the mobile titles have opted to get a bit more complex and thematic (while still holding the same general design) 3D Zelda titles have been moving forward to more org...

 
 
 
 

A look back at Far Cry 1

2004's Far Cry certainly stands out nowadays as one of the more unique entries in the series. It was the first game Crytek had ever worked on, and it certainly was quite a leap in tech compared to its competition. Yet despite how much ...

 
 
 
 

Hades Review: Making Repetition Fun

The hook of rogue style games is their replayability, constantly shifting dungeon designs, upgrade choices, and the quest to get just a little farther in each subsequent run.  Hades takes elements from these games, and blends the...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 19: Guardian

Surprises are a difficult thing to pull off properly in games. Poor execution can make it predictable which ruins the surprise or the event itself is unfitting and not fun. Thankfully From Software has a lot of experience in this kind ...

 
 
 
 

REVIEW: STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER

Warning: Spoilers, sarcasm, and foul language ahead. I died the first time on the tutorial, and then three more times before beating the intro. Goodbye undead. Hello jedi, these are your end of days. Explore them well, take your time a...

 
 
 
 

Before Liftoff: Roboquest

Note: code provided by developer. There are a lot of rogue-likes and rogue-lites releasing every year, so trying to keep up with them can be tough. In this sea of games, however, are a few games worth investing time into. One of those...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Traveller In Playtime – MediEvil: Resurrection

MediEvil: Resurrection is a remake of the original MediEvil developed by SCE Cambridge Studio and published by Sony for the PSP in 2005, 7 years after the original. The story is largely the same, focusing on the redemptive adventure of...

 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 18: Neighborhood

Nearly Three decades have passed and the closest we ever got to having something like Zombies Ate My Neighbors was Death Road to Canada.   Evening of the Undead: Zombies Ate My Neighbors   Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 17: Closing Time

Say what you will about the franchise and the direction it has taken over the years. There is no denying that it much like PT has shaped a lot of games over the past decade. Five Nights at Freddy’s 2: Main theme I would like to ...

 
 
 
 

6 months as a Destructoid user. My thoughts.

Following the blogging tendencies I adopted around 2015 or so blog sequels are bound to happen more often for two reasons. First, ideas keep reaching my mind and if I don't write them down I may not write them later like I originally w...

 
 
 
 
 
 

La Mulana (2013 PC Release) review

There’s a fine and often foggy line when it comes to games designed to be challenging, having to balance providing enough tools, mechanics and means for the player while also pressing them to effectively use them as the challenge...

 
 
 
 

TGIF Open Thread!

Good morning Destructoid! It's that wonderful time of the week! It's Friday!!! This week wasn't great but it flew right by so I'll take it. Love when I blink and I'm already writing another TGIF. Means I get to sit on my ass for a goo...

 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 16: Tar

Horror doesn’t always come at the pointed ends of a monster’s teeth or by the hand of a nigh unstoppable force. Black Tar: Hotline Miami 2 I spoke about this one before, mostly about the scene itself in the game. Of course ...

 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 15: Survive

I was willing to give this a chance mind you. I know survival games are a dime in a dozen but I can’t say I wasn’t interested in fighting a few zombies in a game like Metal Gear Solid 5. Metal Gear Survive: Enter the Fog I...
