Love/Hate: The Games as Art Argument

If it weren't for the majority of people who were born at the end of Generation X and the beginning of Generation Y, this debate wouldn't exist. I say this because we were the first generation to be brought up having wide access to televi...

 
 
 

Love/Hate: Super Mario World

Let me get this out there right now. There is in my mind, no better example of a platforming game and no "Mario" game that comes as close to perfection than Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. I love this game like no other, and I'm...

A Weird Kid's Top 10 -- Arcade Beat 'Em Ups

Games That Defined Me -- Chrono Cross

Chrono Cross is just one of those games that deserve more dissection and more attention from the gaming world even though I'm sure it's been done before by many other contributors and writers here on Destructoid. This was perhaps the final...

 
 
 

A Weird Kid's Top 10 -- Guilty Pleasure Movies

Whether it be games, music, books, or movies, I've earned my Weird Kid moniker. With movies it was mainly because I had too much time where I was allowed to stay up late watching all the premium channels without any adult supervision. I w...

 
 
 
 

What the Hell Have We Done?!?

Gamers of Destructoid, I think that we've created a monster. A monster that is really mean that likes to eat cash and poop out cheap plastic instruments. The rhythm gaming industry is a beast that none of us saw coming but each of us have ...

 
 
 

A Cast of Thousands - Gregg The Grim Reaper

Death, the one inevitability that we all must face. The one absolute to each of our lives, that is unless you're a character in a video game, then death is as avoidable as most common STDs (Protip: look for open sores to avoid Herpes), or...

 
 
 

A Weird Kid's Top 10 -- SNK Games

The arcade, to my generation its where magic happened one quarter at a time, and games looked so much better than anything you could play on a console at home. The big names were always represented in these beaming halls of standup gaming...

 
 
 
 

The Search for Booty Episode I

I'm always striving to create new content that might be interesting to the Destructoid crowd. In doing so, I've always had issue with writing up stories about the news or just rehashing something somebody else has written about already. To...

Look, I Drink -- Aerox's Lunchbox

Less Bureaucracy, More Parenting

If there is one thing in this world that pisses me off, it would have to be this new generation of American who seemingly have the inability to set limits for themselves or their children. I think that this behavior of inactivity is pri...

 
 
 
 

Help A Brotha Out, Win Some Shit

Recently I was asked by my good buddy from the IRC, some of you probably know him simply as Conrad Zimmerman, to help judge a contest that he has so graciously set up. The only problem is that there aren't enough people entering his conte...

A Weird Kid's Top 10 -- Ways To Die

Since their inception, video games have been challenging people to be 'better' each game you play, whether it be score based or by only giving you only so many chances of finishing a level. Let's face it, there is absolutely no point to a...

 
 
 

Australia Pulls Stick Out of Butt

About Excrementoone of us since 5:39 PM on 07.11.2007


Hey robots, I'm Excremento, but you cool and old skool Dtoiders know that already, this is merely for the N00BS. I've been a videogamer for as long as I can remember. I have well over 27 years of video game experience that I rely on daily, and a near encyclopedic memory of gaming starting with the Commodore 64 and ending with whatever is the current hotness.

I've got my own blog at MediaWhoreNetwork that I try to write on when I'm not too busy...and just recently have decided to come back to do a few Community Blogs here on Dtoid now that most failbloggers don't exist anymore. I'm still here fellas (and ladies) updating as often as I can for all of your enjoyment.

Any of you out there who wish to chat it up with ol Ex can do so at:
