April Fools: Not "nerd"--"node."

No sentence better exemplifies how I felt about Raiden the first time I played Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. After the sinking of the tanker, which is one of the best opening chapters in gaming history, I was waiting with antic...


From Sofware with Love: The Tower

I bought my PS3 in 2009, after saving up for it for months. It came bundled with Metal Gear Solid IV, and as soon i finished wiping my tears for Big Boss and Snake, i decided it was time to move on to another game, and that game was De...

REVIEW: Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap (WiiU)

Despite my claims in a previous review, this month I was simply not done with Zelda, and even though I tried to put it down, once you get stuck into the rhythmic solving of puzzles and spelunking of temples nothing else quite scratche...


REVIEW: Hyrule Warriors (WiiU)

Taking a brief departure from the official canon of The Legend of Zelda, and uncharacteristically taking a risk with one of its most prestigious intellectual properties, in 2014 Nintendo released Hyrule Warriors on the WiiU. I'm reall...


MAJORA MARCH: The Most Disturbing Man in the Moon

Majora’s Mask ostensibly has a central antagonist, that of the titular mask and its influence over the poor innocent Skull Kid, and supposedly it’s because of this masked villain that you’re gathering power over the ...

My Nine

I must apologize if this video is too artistic and somewhat creepy, here is another video if you need to cleanse your ears. To be honest I was not looking forward to this post. There is simply more than Nine people on the site tha...


The Nine Best Dtoiders Ever

I am not the easiest person to get to know. I'm a quiet guy raised by quiet people and I'm 75% deaf to boot. It's not the sort of life that produces the gregarious, amiable type. Being friends with me usually requires people who are co...


Happy Anniversary Dtoid: The Magnificent Nine

I've only just celebrated my one year anniversary here at Destructoid; I officially signed up in February 2014 after lurking for a couple of years in awe of the GIF bombs in the front page articles comments' sections. It's been good so...


I Love Shadow of the Colossus!

[This is an essay I wrote a while ago for my college work. It wasn't for a formal assignment, but instead just a practice piece that we were allowed to pick any topic for. So I decided to gush about SotC. I've been sitting on it for ag...


Band of Bloggers: Journey into Peril!

I bet you're wondering why that's an image from the old fallout games? For this month's Band of Bloggers assignment -- dedicated to one of my favorite gaming franchises of ever, Fallout -- I ahead of time asked Scholarly Gamer, one of...

The Gift of Gaming: BIONIC ARM!

A great gift to me is something that qualifies the phrase, "the gift that keeps on giving." And what better gift is there that has more to give then what it initially offers then a good old fashioned fighting game? 2008 sounds so rece...


The Gift Of Gaming: The Conversation Piece

Aahh, the “small talk”. Wonderful, isn't it? This simple tool helps us throw a rope to others so we do not feel alone as we stumble around in the dim light that is our life. We're never quite fully knowing if we're about to...


The Gift of Gaming: Influences on my sleeve

Giving Thanks: Sega Genesis Collection

Initially I had scrapped an entirely different Giving Thanks post because I got to the point when there had to be a decision made about what could be included and what could not and instead the post got junked. Which sucked because I w...


Fangs for the Memories: Slender

It was surprisingly difficult to choose a top horror game, or horror moment. The first that came to mind was ‘of course, Fatal Frame!’. The game is generally very eerie; the ambience is effective; of a breeze drifting throu...


Giving Thanks: The Miiverse

Though touted as one of the greater evolutions in gaming, I’ve never been a huge proponent of online gaming. Indulging in a game’s world and story is a personal experience for me. The voices and actions of other players, pa...
