I think I need to make a game

I'm not saying that I'd like to create a game one day, that it would be fun to try and turn what I've learned over my years of playing and thinking about games into one of my own creation. This feels more serious. I'm struck often by insp...

 
 
 
 

Custom covers for Borderlands

I enjoyed the absolute hell out of Borderlands right up until that last expansion released and I lost any and all desire to play the game. But that doesn't change how much love I have for the time when I had a lot of love for playing Border...

 
 
 

Deadly Premonition custom cover

Been some time since I got around to doing a custom game cover. When I first started making these, Deadly Premonition was always at the top of my list. I just couldn't settle on what I wanted to attempt. My first idea was to depict the v...

 
 
 

Custom covers for Uncharted

I took a little bit of time this weekend to whip up more game covers. Since I recently finished Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on Backlog (my live streaming show where I play through the unfinished games in my collection; Weeknights, 10pm Pac...

 
 
 

A couple more custom game covers

I posted a pair of covers that I made for BioShock and Bayonetta on Friday. People seemed to like them, so I spent a little bit of time this weekend cooking up a couple more. Reading through the comments this weekend, someone suggested th...

 
 
 

A couple of custom game covers which I made

I was going through some files, doing a little maintenance, and came across a few custom covers I made a few months ago. Over time, I'll probably get around to making more of these (there's an unfinished Earth Defense Force 2017 and I'd l...

 
 
 

PAX presence, A call for Dtoid Portlanders

After a year away from what's probably the biggest gathering of Dtoiders in the US, I'm happy to say that I'll be attending PAX Prime this year. I didn't join in on the fun in 2009 because getting across the country for a weekend of drink...

 
 
 

Video Blog #6 Surface-level Satisfied Punk

Once more, it's time for me to put my ugly mug in front of the camera and deliver a diatribe whether you want it or not. In this video, I talk a little bit about my recent move, make an observation about not being very observant and bitch...

 
 
 

Video Blog #5 - Moving Nightmares

Hey, look at that! It's another video blog! I haven't done one since before E3 so, despite being absurdly busy, I decided that you guys deserved it. By which I mean you've all been very naughty and need to be tormented with more of my inc...

 
 
 

Video Blog #4 - The Zapper

I can't say exactly why it popped into my head when I was trying to decide how to title this video blog, but calling it The Zapper made my brain leap to The Shocker. If there were a sexual maneuver called "The Zapper," what do you suppose...

 
 
 

Video Blog #3 - Late Night Delight

It's time for another video blog. Tonight I spend a few minutes talking about my feelings on the cancellation of Duke Nukem Forever and a give some words about Playboy Magazine. No links this week, as I'm sure you're more than capable of ...

 
 
 

Video Blog #2 - Conrad Hatsworth

You asked for it, by God, you're getting it. As I state in the video, this is another test run of sorts as I try to get my audio issues worked out. So, if you're still having problems hearing me or have any other sort of audio problem w...

 
 
 

I did a video blog thing. It is here.

Hey, look at that. It's a video blog. I'm aiming to be more pretentious and egomaniacal every day! Below are links to various things I'm talking about. - Sam and Max Surfin' the Highway: Anniversary Edition (on Amazon) - Bioshock Art Boo...

 
 
 
 

On newfags, oldfags, memes and drama

I see a whole lot of people bitching and whining about how the new users are taking all the piss out of Dtoid. This is how it has been since I came on to the site in the first place. And you know what? I suspect it's been going on a lot lon...

 
 
 
 

Looking for participants in Dtoid Discusses

As I mentioned earlier today in the Destructoid Discusses post, we're starting a new thing with the series. We want to get you guys involved and we'll be snagging a community member each week to share their insight on whatever topic it is w...

 
 
 
 
 

Fredo (Bethesda), You Broke My Heart

I finished Fallout 3 tonight. As many were, I was wary about the Oblivion developer taking the reins of one of my most beloved game series. Wary, but hopeful. As I played, that fear completely disappeared. Sure, it wasn't an isometric v...

 
 
 

GTA IV Special Edition clearance @ Target

Want to be as happy as this guy without spending a lot of cash? I made a run to Target this week to pick up Scene It! after unstoppablejuggernaut's post about the game being a mere $14.99 on clearance. Totally worth every penny if you're a...

 
 
 

PAX 08: What I brought home

PAX is like my Mecca (not my Macca, who is also amazing), and I turn to the northwest three times a day to pray to the benevolent geek gods that I shall survive another year to make the pilgrimage back. And, as would be expected, I wind u...

 
 
 

PAX Attendees - Come with me to the museum

Last year, while wandering around the city on the night before PAX, we decided to go and have a look at the Space Needle. Little did I realize that, directly beneath it's towering form, lies the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame. An...

 
 
 

Would anyone like to buy my PAX pass?

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am in possession of an extra 3 Day pass for PAX. If there's anybody who's going to attend the con but hasn't purchased a pass yet, I can save you a little time standing in line. I'm sure I can sell it to...

 
 
 

RetRose Tinted: Cutting Room Floor

A little while ago, I posted my RetRose Tinted column up on the front page. It's about my birthday and Chuck E. Cheese. The whole experience made me a bit of a sad panda. There was a chunk of the post that took out because it was kinda ...

 
 
 

Death By Cartoon: 110 - Simon the Ape-Man

Uber-Short Synopsis: Simon Belmont develops amnesia after a severe blow to the head and the N Team must bring the vampire hunter back to his senses to stop Dracula from conquering Castlevania. On Castlevania, The Count is up to no good...

 
 
 

Darious Pickman Dreamcast Contest Winner

There weren't a ton of entries. I think some people might have been scared off by the competition. Still, I got some neat photoshop jobs and a truly revolting fapfiction from TheBez. The winner, however, should be obvious to everyone. Ha...

 
 
 

CBlogs of 7.7.2008 + It's My Last One

Three months ago today, I joined the Recap Team. Now, I bid it adieu. A fuller explanation of why I'll no longer be helping out with this follows your recap. I will say this now, it has been an absolute pleasure and joy to have done this...

About Rodney Dangerfield:



The mere inclusion of Rodney Dangerfield can vastly improve anything. Films, music, toasters, anything. In particular, the force of Rodney Dangerfield could elevate video games to the level in which they are accepted by the mainstream as a true art form, bringing together people of all races, creeds and tax brackets in peace and harmony.

RIP Rodney.
