PAX and the tale of the silver flasks

As you can see in the photo above, next to my BioShock Big Daddy and Little Sister and framed photo of Niero in front of MTV Studios, there is one incredibly hip looking silver flask. With the Dtoid head engraved on it, in fact. Yeah, it'...

 
 
 
 

Galactrix in relation to Conrad's post

So Conrad and I have been talking about Galactrix ( I wanted to review it with him but have too much on my hands right now, so had to pass), and he told me today that he intended to write this article about how he felt about the game. Whi...

 
 
 
 

10 things you didn't know about Colette

Since I started to see these blogs pop up, I knew I wanted to do one too but had a crazy week last week and still hadn't had the time yet. This weekend, I saw Hamza's wrap up post and when I saw all the incredible entries, I knew I had to...

 
 
 
 
 

Rhythm Heaven, indeed: Technictix

I have a really cool life. Case in point: last night, I recorded RetroforceGo!, which was comprised of Topher, Stella and myself talking about Japanese rhythm games for two hours. Niero heard the majority of my end of the conversation and...

 
 
 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM DORK!

If it wasn't for Adam Dork, you would not see half of the stories on the homepage that you do. Why? Because the dude sends tips to both Dtoid AND Tomopop regularly, making our jobs easier and keeping the news constantly flowing so that y...

 
 
 

Realization: I might own too many Chocobo.

<p>While I was wandering idly about the office today I looked up at the big bookshelf near my desk and realized that since I don't face it (my desk faces the opposite direction), it's taken me until now to realize I have a lot of Choc...

New freelance work (if you guys want to read)

I accepted some freelance work at a new blog called Colourlovers, which is not a part of the game industry. I love art and design and wanted to be able to write about those topics as well, so now I have the opportunity to do so. I don't k...

 
 
 
 

HUMILIATION

Guys, I just listened to the first ten minutes of RetroForce Go with me in it and I am horrified by how bad I sound. If you listen to this week's episode, I AM SO SORRY. I really wanted to be on the episode, but now that I'm listening to i...

 
 
 

Chocofestival!

Analog Pidgin wins best surprise gift of the year by sending me a box of chocobos. How fucking COOL IS HE??? Thank you Ian! Choco christmas rocks.

 
 
 

Christmas Eve lulz (bad words within)

<Turkeyslam> oh man I saw pure gold at lunch, I was sitting near this group of black guys at a table and they all had tucked in shirts and shit, looked educated, I think they were studying calculus or something <Turkeyslam> an...

 
 
 
 

Would you buy a Dtoid hoodie?

I've been considering whether or not to investigate adding these to the store. Looks like the average price for them through Split Reason is $45, which I feel is pricey, but I would pay for it because I want to represent. Honestly though -...

Go check out Destructoid's collectible toy culture blog, which I proudly run:



Here is a list of things you should know about me:
I'm a female game/toy blogger living in New Orleans.
The NES is my favorite system of all time, closely followed by the PS2.
My DS is more or less glued to my person.
I can't resist playing Contra. Ever.
I think toys are the best solution to not wanting to grow up, and I have an always-growing collection of them, which is why I started Tomopop.
I require sushi for living.
I'm hopelessly addicted to Japanese dramas and skinny Japanese boys with awful hair.
I love wandering around used bookstores for hours.
I think about throwing rocks at people a lot.
I replay The Legend of Zelda about 5 times a year.
I read a lot.
I can't live without music.

Kon-kon!


This Pedro guy is pretty good.

And these RetroforceGo! people aren't so bad.


Actually, the people I work with are pretty freaking awesome in general.


Sometimes I put on costumes, too.
