"I'm so close to breaking my FFRK addiction, I just need to wait 5 more days for the Kingdom Hearts collab..." I lied to myself, lying on the floor with hands twitching over my phone.


So, for curiosity's sake, I quickly scrambled together a list of Wii U games and whether or not they have a Switch counterpart. Hoo boy... there's still a handful of great Wii U exclusives, but that list is getting REALLY short...


How can fighting game players memorize so much moveset data? Kudos to you all, but man, it always baffles me how you make so many split-second decisions from so much information...!


If the general consensus is that Nomura is a better monster designer than a human character designer, why hasn't he directed an RPG where the protagonists are monsters?


Shower thoughts about Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep spoilers ------------------------ If the X-Blade needs hearts of pure light/darkness but Ventus's and Vanitas's count, and Vanitas is just Ven's darkness, why do you need more than one person to make it?


Every time I see a Kingdom Hearts III trailer I become 10 years old again.


Hey, random question. Why do we buy video games that we don't even play? I know I've got a handful of Steam games I've never cracked open...


I forgot that Super Mario Odyssey's Balloon World update was announced to come out this month. Guys I'm so excited to pop balloons


It feels weird transitioning on this site from my weird looking "Cedi" persona to my weird yet normal-ish looking real self. Not that I mind, but I wonder who else here has gone through that same feeling at any point?


Have to change my avatar because of exciting news! I've joined the official Destructoid Contributor team! Expect my first feature Soon™. In the meantime, I want to thank EVERYBODY. Couldn't have gotten here without ya'll!


I think my gacha game addictions have gone down a lot these days. Still enjoying Opera Omnia, but unlike how I used to play these games, I'm not nearly as compelled to grind for hours upon hours upon hours upon hours upon hours upon hours upon hours upon


Ohsnap I accidentally created a blank quickpost. Um... UM... So has anybody else been pulled into the void that is FF Opera Omnia? My current main team is Vivi/Edge/Yuna with their 5* weapons.


Been wrestling with a funk this week, but I finally managed to find a way out of it, and I'm already feeling much better! Even better, I've got a new and unusual idea for a blog I'm working on now thanks to that~


So has anyone else noticed that the control scheme for Persona dancing games is pretty similar, albeit not identical, to that of Samba De Amigo? (Second image for comparison in comments)


Gravity Rush 2's online services are getting extended for half a year!? Nice! Now I'll probably be able to get all of the Dusty Token loot!


Hey ya know those plans I said I'd finalize yesterday and today? Sick is getting worse. Much worse. D:


In between job hunting, getting badly sick, the holidays, and work being extra exhausting in the cold weather, I've not published many blogs recently... but I've got several works in progress! In the meantime, I have plans to finalize today & tommorrow...


New Year's Resolution: Get a job. I mean, I'm already employed part time at the supermarket, but if I could finally either get a second part time job I'd actually enjoy and/or get a full time job to replace the supermarket one, that'd be great!


Romancing SaGa 2 remake comes out today... but I'm on a budget... but it's 10 days until Christmas... but I'm gonna get so many other games... but HYPE... D:


Huh... Patreon's actually backpedaling on their fee change! I need to reconsider whether I still would like to join the platform as a creator or not, but if nothing else, I'm relieved and glad for the countless creators already on there.


I've decided to nix becoming a Patreon creator and instead wait for alternative platforms, but there's still no such option open to meyet... but there IS Ko-Fi. I could maybe set up rewards similar to my Patreon plans based on Ko-Fi payments. Thoughts?


Still not feeling 100%, but doing much better today! I should celebrate by catching up with the MonHun Beta...


Coughing fits are keeping me up all night. This has been going on for a week. Was at its worst last night. Going to doctor again today. Hoping for more good news than bad news by the time the visit is over.


Since Destructoid had a bad case of the hiccups at the time, bump for my blog from last week? It's where I give some belated Thanksgiving thanks, as well as share my plans for the new year!


I can't believe it. I was so nervous when I first wrote that blog about gacha games. Now it's on the front page. A BILLION YEARS OF MOTHS TO HUG YOU ALL


The Destructoid community has made my blogging venture here the most fulfilling thing I've done in a long time. From the bottom of my heart, Happiest of Thanksgivings! Hope to return the favor by continuing to write and HUGE HUGS (source in comments)


Hmmm... my phone maaaaay not be able to handle FEHeroes' upcoming 2.0 update. Hard to say before it gets here. I was hoping to review it for a blog, but if that can't happen, I'll have to try something else...


About Chris Hovermaleone of us since 8:03 PM on 07.31.2017

I'm a Contributor who used to go by the screen name Cedi! Obligatory disclaimer; I backed Kirbopher/Chris Niosi's TOME RPG on Kickstarter.

My favorite games are Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Rayman Legends, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Bayonetta 2, Jamestown+, Phantasy Star Portable 2, Hyrule Warriors, and Guacamelee: STCE.

I’m a longtime gamer who enjoys to write, to entertain, to inform, and to overanalyze the little things. Transparency and honesty are my foremost virtues in anything I do. I joined the Destructoid team to pursue work applying the skills I love to practice for a hobby I love to explore.

As far as social media is concerned, you can find me on my professional Twitter account, or my personal Twitter account! Fair advice, you can expect to see a lot more of the big blue character in my banner if you check out my personal Twitter. Whether that's a recommendation or a warning depends. By the way, that banner is a commission by Twitter user @kaizer33226.
