The deal was I had to get a pink one

I was born in 1981. I didn't get a cell phone until 2005, and except for a short period of my life, I hardly ever use the thing. I'm an old man at the age of 26, already insisting I don't need these gadgets and plenty of online software get...


Why America Hates Video Games

The Escapist recently published an article about the "media myth", which is really an article that says "So many people hate video games, and it's fascinating," followed by "we can't blame the media for it, it's really due to culture", foll...


What's my wife's potential as a gamer?

Dtoid is one of the few places I've seen that garners a lot of discussion by and about women and yet isn't a place with the word "girl" in the title. I've thought a lot of times about how to go about how to ask this, so I'm just going to d...


Random stupid crap 1: Gamestop's bad copy

Gamestop newsletters have copy written by a non-gamer. They're terribad. Anyway, check this out for confirmation that Gamestop is run by businessmen that aren't exactly in touch . My "favorites" are the football player, the tank, and the a...


Good Idea, Bad Idea: Dudes that make you go “…”

It seems that a popular topic amongst Dtoiders is game content and games as art. Today’s article is approaching games from that angle. Brad Pitt once said in Newsweek that “leading-man” roles are “all the same guy.” He didn’t elaborate much...


Marketing in video games being good for us: Rock Band

I never expected to get Rock Band, but a friend of mine got it, brought it over, and my wife, who has only really played WoW, said she wanted it. Badly. So we went out and got it. Drums became my favorite, and while playing at home one da...


Get The Darkness free when you order Bioshock

Well, I once wrote in the forums that I would buy Bioshock when it's price had reduced. It hasn't done that yet (though there are tons of used copies I can get), but this is the next best thing. If you order Bioshock, you get The Darkness ...


The French and gamers: strange bedfellows

The battle of the video game industry to become legitimized in society, culture, and well, the world, really, continues onward. Video games are now art in France, the artistic center of the world. While a few countries with Germanic langua...


Best wife EVAR

To introduce myself into the community, I thought I'd rip a somewhat recent post from another blog I have. It will get you up to speed on who I am, and it will make most of you envious. My forum intro thread, which failed because I wasn't...


About Etelmikone of us since 3:47 PM on 10.09.2007

I am currently a review editor at Snackbar Games.

I play a lot of stuff and I'm too spread out, despite only having one console. I'm l33t at best and not bad at worst, unless it's Halo. Damn, I suck at that.

My real blog and my column.

Most of the time I'm playing WoW, TF 2, or Street Fighter IV.
