Steph's Soapbox: More Curves

The other night I was bored and decided to edit my XBox360 Avatar a bit. I figured I might as well show off some of the items I had purchased or unlocked, but while changing my wardrobe, I realized something seemed weird. Perhaps I never ...

The year is just about over, guys. I'm not sure if this has been done or not, but I figured I'd give it a shot. It's time to begin thinking about what the CBlog community's Game of the Year is. Now here's how things will work... I will b...

 
 
 

Happy Holidays: Santa's Little Gamer

November 2004. I had just turned fifteen little over a month ago and had been working over the summer at my family's business. I hadn't earned too much - maybe a couple hundred dollars - but it was enough to purchase the Nintendo DS. I h...

 
 
 
 

CAD Character Design Stolen? (Updated)

Updated on May 22nd, 12:58pm Central: I've been receiving reports of shady behavior from Buckley and other members of his forum. Besides immediate bans for those who talk about the connection between the designs, the ability to even talk ...

 
 
 

Tuesday Night Tea: Just for You

(Tuesday Night Tea is a bit of a twist on the Monthly Musings. Though rather than having a topic monthly, I plan on trying to post something every Tuesday. Why Tuesday? Because there's a 'T' in Tuesday and a 'T' in tea. Why not Thursday? Be...

 
 
 

E for Effort: It Worked

Something about Sex: Wardrobe Malfunction

Back in December I purchased a little Diablo-styled game from Steam called Torchlight. I had seen the videos, looked at screenshots, read up on some opinions, and tried out the trial. Satisfied with what I had seen, read, and the bit I pl...

 
 
 

What is this I don't even...

As the swirling logo and familiar echo of the Xbox360 chime fills the room, I sit down comfortably on my futon. My feet are propped up on the antique trunk that doubles as a game storage and my coffee table. My headsets on and my hands ar...

Leave Jim Sterling Alone

… and everyone else. Now I’ the type of person who likes to not stir shit up. The type of person that when McDonald’s messes up my burger, I eat it anyway because in the time it would take to go up to the counter, complain, and get a new...

 
 
 

Why Heavy Rain proves Ebert Wrong

Side note: For awhile I have debated on how to approach writing an article regarding Heavy Rain. I wanted to explain my how my game unfolded as well as my initial feelings towards how it approached presenting the story. That's when I saw An...

 
 
 

Letting Go

Moments ago I sat down with my DS and turned on my copy of Animal Crossing: Wild World. I hadn't played the game in probably over a year but decided to take a look around. After spending a few moments exploring my weed-filled, ugly-flower...

 
 
 
 

Lost in Nightmares

The other day the first bit of Resident Evil 5 downloadable content was released. Besides the addition of Barry Burton and Excella as playable characters in the Mercenaries mode, Lost in Nightmares features a prequel chapter to the game. ...

 
 
 

Steph's Soapbox: I bet it's a XL...

One size fits all. This seems to be the premise for almost all marketing campaigns when it comes to offering appeal as a free gift follows. Perhaps it is a free gift for preordering a game or maybe it's a limited offer for picking up a m...

 
 
 

Cutting out the Middleman

Digital distribution sounds great on paper. The idea of cutting out the middle man sound convenient. There's a slight chance that games could be cheaper since developers wouldn't have to pay artists to design box out, then wouldn't have ...

 
 

About Faye Dantesone of us since 10:00 PM on 02.07.2010

When I move my mouse around it's like my hand and the mouse don't even exist and that I am moving the pointer around solely with the power of my mind. I have achieved nearly 100% synchronization this machine and soon I will become The Internet.

It has been nearly 5 years since I've last written anything on Destructoid or any other sites. After a little rebanding and a lot of time to reflect on life, I have returned to try to breathe life back to two passions that I have neglected more than I wanted. I won't bore you with what I've been doing since then (moved a few times, got engaged, got married, and bought a house), but I'm happy to be back!
