I'm going to talk with Swery at TGS about The Good Life. If you guys have any good questions you'd like me to ask shoot 'em at me.


 
 

Found this video online but might need a mod to look it over ;)

 
 

Well I never knew there were "BS" Third Quest Zelda games on the Satellaview in which you can play as a girl. Just when I thought I knew everything about Zelda.


 
 
 

Why was there a PS mouse? What games was it intended for?


 
 

I knew Mirror's Edge Catalyst wasn't so greatly received but wanted to play it myself anyway. Very pretty, but definitely has a lot of issues holding it back from reaching the heights of the original.

 
 
 

You know what? I give up. I'm just going to call him Betamax.


 
 
 

Tactical wargaming meets pinball with voice commands in feudal Japan from the makers of Seaman. Now that's an oddity I never knew of.


 
 

Max settings in Life is Strange Before the Storm are "Hella High"

 
 

After like 400 declines, I finally got a job that will let me continue living in Japan. My god so much stress has just been lifted out of me

 
 

For a resume to localize at Square Enix, I must write 800-1000 words on a confrontation between the protagonist of any of Square's games and a descendant(s) of the same game's villian. Hmm, I guess I can't make Tidus fight himself

 
 

So North Korea fired missiles over Japan and woke me up to missile warning alarms. If I die in the next few weeks I want everyone to remember that Mass Effect 1 is the best game in the series and 2 ruined it all.

The Japanese find a way to sexualize anything, even solar eclipses


 
 

Life tip: Don't scratch your eyes after eating chicken nuggets w/ tabasco

 
 

SNES Classic Bundles live here http://www.thinkgeek.com/snes-classic-bundles/

 
 

Seems like gamestop italy has snes classics for now https://www.gamestop.it/Platform/Games/105921

 
 

Replace "Turboman" with "SNES Classic"

 
 

It amazes me how much people shit on Walking Dead, Life is Strange,etc which are excellent games and are excellently written. Those people just blow nitpicks out of proportion or complain about things they've invented in their heads ie absolutely nothing.

 
 

Japanese dude found a way to look up RE7 girls skirt https://twitter.com/konarofu/status/897629594492260352

 
 

Beard papa's freshn natural cream puff Now thats some drink


 
 

Oh DB intros is a thing. I see, there's only one obviously

 
 

I've been writing for Destructoid for one year as of today..... I guess that's the end of my post


 
 
 

there are too many video games desu

 
 
 

For the record Last of Us is equally overrated but I don't have much to say about it other than the writing is subpar and gameplay is meh.

 
 

About Cory Arnoldone of us since 11:17 AM on 08.07.2016

Definitely-not-a-weaboo Japan-based Destructoid writer.
Just a dude in his 20's trying to accomplish his dreams:
-Move in Japan: Check
-Attain fluency in Japanese: Preparing to smash the N2
-Travel the World. Next in mind: Russia, India, Germany, Israel, Eastern Europe
-Complete my massive backlog of movies and games: In progress
-Become a game journalist: Initiated



I like to tell myself I have OCD, which is one reason I obsessively try to visit as many countries around the world as possible and want to play every significant or at least well-received game out there (same goes for movies). I spend most of my free-time trying to clear those backlogs while also trying to obsessively learn as much about games in particular through various sources.



When I'm not busy overloading my brain with game stuff I'm watching (college) sports, traveling, and trying quirky new things in Japan like visiting owl cafes. I also contribute at Gematsu.
