A humble introduction

Hi there! My name is Sue and I'm a 25 year old trans woman who is obsessed with video games. I always liked to write about video games but haven't done that in a while. However, I figured that since I have an actual journalistic educat...

A Brief Hello

It feels sort of weird coming back here...I have a complicated history with Destructoid. Mostly good. But I wasn't always well behaved, that's for sure. I left around two years ago I guess. I was on staff, never consistently contributi...


BOB - A Delayed Game is eventually Shogged

Shigeru Miyamoto once said, “A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever”. You may have noticed a delay in this month’s Band of Bloggers prompt, and that was totally to drive this point home. We&rsquo...

Marvel's Avengers Isn't great...

Decent Graphics and ACDC won't save this game. I was upset when I found out that PS4 gets Spider-Man and extra content for the same price, while Xbox and PC get completely shafted by Square Enix. They didn't need to add Spider-Man to t...

"Early" thoughts on Warframe

Warframe is one of the most consistently monetized free to play games I have seen.  Want a new gun?  Five bucks.  Oh wait, you don’t have enough slots for a new gun.  We’ll sell you those slots for five ...


Shog's August 2020 Gaming Journal

This month has been...meh. I’m getting tired of blaming seasonal depression for my feelings of ennui, especially during Summer, so I’m going to start blaming people who eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Anyway, I chos...

Catherine: Full Body Review
