The Most Fun I Had With Games in 2016

2016 was a year for escapism if there ever was one. There were a lot of game sales that let me catch up on some that I missed the first time around and some new releases that were a long time coming. Here's what stood out to me. ...

 
 
 
 

My Game of the Year 2015: Transformers Devastation

Simply put I have not had this much fun with a game in a long time. It seems like a perfect convergence of developer, license, art direction, and gameplay. THIS GAME IS  A BLAST. Transformers G1 holds a special place for me, ...

 
 
 

Biggest Disappointment of 2015: Star Wars Battlefront

This should come as no surprise to a lot of people. The thing that got me though, is that I -knew- it was going to be a disappointment, but I held out hope anyways. Everything pointed to this being a game I would not enjoy, but little bit...

 
 
 

Link's Blacklist 2015

Game-Art-HQ has completed posting the latest gallery for Link's Blacklist, an ongoing collaboration by artists focusing on the enemies and bosses of the Zelda games. My latest, Arrghus from A Link to The Past, is seen above!But don't miss o...

 
 
 

My Best Games of the Year 2014

A lot of fun was to be had in the 2014 game scene. For me the year was off to a good start as I accomplished one of my greatest gaming feats by obtaining a platinum trophy in Soul Caliber 5. While that one in particular was a while in ...

 
 
 

Mario's Blacklist!

Game-Art-HQ is at it again, this time with a collection of Mario's baddest baddies- Mario's Blacklist! Just like Link's Blacklist, each artist took on the task of interperting one of Mario's many meanies, from across the ent...

 
 
 

Link's Blacklist!

Perhaps you've been lead to Link's Blacklist right here on DToid, or perhaps you made your way there thru or Game-Art-HQ. My latest contribution is to 'Round Four,' which has seen a ton of fantastic new entries. Mine is a particular ene...

 
 
 

Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds (Omaha)

Last week my wife and I attended Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds at the Holland Center in Omaha. We were very fortunate (and surprised) that the show came to Omaha and knew we couldn't miss a chance to see music from Final Fantasy performed...

 
 
 

Etrian Odyssey IV: D-toid contest!

I really dig the Etrian Odyssey series. Not only do I like a good dungeon crawl, but Etrian feeds my near-insatiable lust for... cartography! Any game that includes mapmaking as part of the adventure is aces in my book. I'm really looking...

 
 
 

The Jim Sterling Fun Time Happy Hour

This started as just a little doodle in my sketchbook. But then after watching "Thank God for Me: The Jimquisition Story," I was suddenly... inspired? Is that the word? Perhaps by something... divine??? I like Jim-- really-- sincerely th...

 
 
 

E3: Thoughts From the Show

It has been many years since I last crossed the floors of E3. Much of it was as expected, peppered with a few little surprises. It remains a spectacle, a glorious exercise in the excess, a marketing sledgehammer wielded to force you to th...

 
 
 

True Nature: Memories of Star Road

Like many, many gamers, I have a distinct love for Mario. I'm old enough to remember playing the original Mario Bros. in the arcade, and it remains one of my favorites of the series. Super Mario Bros. as well, where you had to wait in lin...

 
 
 

Beercade mural: Supreme Awesome in Nebraska?

I don't need to lay out the events that lead me to visit Benson, Nebraska this past weekend. What I need to do is share the mindblowing win that was found on a small-town wall as my gf and I took a walk down Maple Street after breakfast. ...

 
 
 

Have you seen these Super Mario Bros. candy tins???

Maybe you have, but I just wanted to take some cool pictures :-) I did a double take when I saw these at the checkout in Bed, Bath & Beyond of all places. At first glance I thought they were cheap knockoffs-- but they are actually really...

 
 
 
 

My D-Toid car for ModNation Racers!

ModNation Racers Career Mode frustrates me to no end, but all I really want to do is make cars-- so here's the Destructoid racecar I just finished! -- 100% sticker limit! -- kickass rocket engine! -- Florida plates, yo! I think it cam...

 
 
 

2D Sprites I made for Ace Yeti Trapper

There is a special place in my heart for games and artists who keep the Sprite Train steaming along. Once in a blue moon, I get to hop on board. Ace Yeti Trapper is an iphone game I worked on recently, it's actually a fairly old mobile...

 
 
 

Final Fanatasy XIII Midnight Madness!

Since I live all of five minutes from a Best Buy, I thought I'd just stroll on over for the special Midnight release of FF13. And that's was the jist of it, no giant crowds to fight through here in North Austin. There were about 20 de...

 
 
 

How a title screen is made: Ace Yeti Trapper

So here's a peek into how I went about creating a title screen for an iPhone game that my company launched recently. Note I do not presume any one methodology is better than another. In fact some graphic artists may find this example to b...

 
 
 
 

My Mod Nation Racers Beta experience

Yikes! I'm still a daly dtoid reader, but I haven't c-blogged in ages! Let's try and fix that :-) Over the holidays I was able to spend some quality time with a backlogs of games I've been wanting to play or complete. Tho that effort was...

 
 
 
 

Lovin' me some 8-bit Jesus

Not long ago it was D-Toid that pointed me towards the amazing chip tuner Doctor Octoroc and his x-mas tunes under the guise of "8-bit Jesus." Um, it's kind of awesome. Real awesome. Any season of the year. At his site you can donat...

 
 
 
 

Chrono Trigger drawings up for grabs

UPDATE: The Dtoid site update wiped alot of comments, alas, these drawings have all been claimed. "What I did over Holiday" a) Las Vegas b) Chrono Trigger The two went surprisingly well together. I was sooooo looking forward to some ...

 
 
 

Tales of PS3 Tomfoolery: Why has God forsaken me?

On this Christmas day, when many of you may be unwrapping some new games or maybe even a new console, I wanted to share the shenanigans I've been dealing with the past several weeks. Don't worry, it has a happy ending, sort of. I have...

 
 
 

A Time to Build: Shoot-Em-Up Construction Kit

So "back in the day" there was this software, Shoot 'Em Up Construction Kit. Lovingly referred to as "SEUCK." It's still one of the pieces of software most responsible for my career to this day. I was very fortunate to have a father ...

 
 
 

Street Fighter Tourney at Arcade UFO, Austin

About Edcoone of us since 8:07 PM on 08.23.2007

Who is Super Edco?
Since back from the retro days of yore, anytime a game would let you create a character and name it yourself, I've been using EDCO. It came about as an amalgam of my own name and the fact that an unusual number of games in those days only let you use four characters.

Videogames are a big part of my life. I've been playing and making videogames just about since there was such a thing to be done. My favorite games are RPGs, Fighters, and action adventures, and the rest of that list is a long one indeed.
