GoddessCast#6: We Also Heart Anime

Yeah, so I didnít feel like making a new header this week and just used one of my old fanarts. Wanna make something of it? DO YOU WANT TO FISTICUFFS!?! This show is late-- normally I try to get them up by mid-day Wednesday-- but stuff w...

 
 
 

Parasite Eve: Day 5 (The Longest Day)

For the benefit of you latecomers who haven't been reading the PE series since...last November *gasp*, here are the links to all of the previous entries; they link together, too. I probably should have done this from the very beginning, ...

 
 
 

Fanart: Bayonetta

After reading stewie's cblog on the question of why Bayonetta is hot, I got to thinking a bit about the character. She's the last character I ever thought I'd want to draw, but after thinking about it, I realized that I do like the fact ...

 
 
 

GoddessCast#5: We Heart PSX

On GC #5, we talk about the original Playstation in all of its pixelated glory. Wilson is fairly quiet during this episode while Micronesia and I take a happy stroll down memory lane. Games mentioned include: FFVI, Travian, Fate/Stay Ni...

 
 
 

GoddessCast#4: Afternoon of Darkness (and Golf)

Okay, GGCast sounds funny so Iíve just decided to call it GoddessCast and get it over with. Doesnít really sound like a gaming podcast, but then again Rebel FM doesnít sound like one either, and that seems to work out okay. This week, o...

 
 
 
 

GGCast#3: Five Hours in a Cave

Our plans for this week's podcast got pushed back since our new cast member is having microphone problems-- hopefully by the time we record the next one he'll be ready to go. Anyway, this episode is a bit more rambling then I would have ...

 
 
 

Art Blog: The Kiss

I don't post most of my Sterling stuff here, but this page just makes me really happy:) :) :). Some other images from this scene are included.

 
 
 

Fanart: Rydia, FFIV

This is one part of a larger project, but I haven't posted any new art for a little while so I figured I'd share it. It's actually kind of scary to use colored pencils these days-- I'm so used to Photoshop that the idea of not being able...

 
 
 

Podcast: GGCast #2

In this episode, we discuss the fact that I've finally started playing FFVI, then try to avoid talking about Final Fantasy for a brief period until we give up; then we just blab about FF excessively. Which was a lot of fun actually, but ...

 
 
 

FFIV DS And the Role of New Game +

Rydia: Still Awesome. I hadn't planned on playing through FFIV DS again immediately after finishing it; after all, I'm a busy girl. But, after finally beating the game the other day and starting over, I quickly realized that FFIV DS may...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

First Podcast, Whoo-hoo

Wilson and I just attempted to record our first podcast (awww). It's basically a pilot, since the thing doesn't have a name yet and I don't know how many of these we may or may not be doing. It was fun though. My apologies about the audi...

 
 
 

Another PSX Classic: Vagrant Story

Apparently trying to obtain screens from my original, black-box copy of Parasite Eve is a fool's game and my playthrough is stalled until I can obtain a copy of...a different pedigree. I find it kind of strange that while I've done more t...

 
 
 

More Dryad Art

Now that I have a proper desk with room for my scanner (you don't even want to know where I used to keep it), I've scanned some of the drawings from the tremendous backlog that I've accumulated recently. The attached images are primarily...

 
 
 

FFIV: This Really Happens

*spoilers for Final Fantasy IV* This is a comic dramatization of a real conversation in Final Fantasy IV: No names have been changed, because no one is innocent (especially not Kain). It wasn't like I was surprised when Rosa did the who...

 
 
 
 

The Whole Fat Princess Thing: Belated Edition

I realize that you are all sick to death of this topic, however I wouldn't bring it up if I didn't feel I had something different to say, so keep that in mind. This whole tempest in a teapot isn't really about sexism primarily; it's about ...

 
 
 

Project Update

Okay, remember my little game-in-development? It hasn't disappeared; if anything, it's gone along a little too well. It's become sufficiently huge in concept and design that it's essentially become its own universe. While I still want ...

 
 
 

DSiWare Review: Mighty Flip Champs

I meant to post a review of this title about a month ago, but kept putting it off due to chronic lack of interest. That sentence may lead you to believe that this is a terrible game and you know everything that you need to know, but that i...

 
 
 

Book Review: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

It may seem a bit odd to post a book review on Destructoid, but I actually found out about this book because of Podtoid, when someone (I believe it was Aaron?) mentioned that they were holding off reading the book until he had read the or...

 
 
 

Adventures in Sculpture: Super Sailor Moon

I've made several abortive attempts to create clay figures/statues over the past year or so, but with my Model-Magic Sailor Moon here, I've finally finished one. She's quite a bit rough and unpolished (actually quite literally, since I s...

 
 
 

Parasite Eve: Special Soundtrack Edition

I was too busy to work on my Parasite Eve project for a while, but now I'm getting back into it; I was going to make this entry about Day 3, but I decided to do something I've been meaning to do for a while instead and discuss the music. ...

 
 
 
 
 

Jim Sterling, Knight of Destructoid

When I originally posted my Knight of Sterling art, some Dtoiders were confused and thought it was a reference to Jim Sterling, and understandably so. Recent discussions on Podtoid centering around Jim's status as a Toucan Rider put the ...

 
 
 

The Insidiousness of the FUN Police

How many times have you heard a developer say "We don't care if the game is artistic/ innovative/ etc., we just care if it's FUN!" It seems to have become an industry mantra in recent years, and while at first I was willing to give the ben...

 
 

About GamingGoddessone of us since 12:13 AM on 08.27.2008

Links to all things Me:

My Personal Blog
Because I occasionally think about things other than games (I know-- for shame!)
Currently doing a 20-year history of Nine Inch Nails, because apparently I don't have enough projects that are HUGE TIME-SUCKING MONSTERS. Anyway, I try to keep anything that's videogames-related on Gaming Goddess, but there's a little bit of inevitable crossover.

My graphic novel, Sterling
There is some videogame-related stuff in Sterling, particularly Final Fantasy, but that's not really the focus. Meant for adults, so don't say I didn't warn you:).

My Twitter I'm very conscious of twitter-spamming, so I try to tweet only when I update one of my blogs or comics. Some people can get away with constantly tweeting charming little witticisms and it's neat, but I think if you have any interest in my twitter at all, it should be useful, never a nuisance.

About the name Gaming Goddess: No, I do not have delusions of grandeur! At least, not about games!
The origin of GG is this: My boyfriend's Mom is REALLY good at Space Invaders and games like that, leading me to dub her the "8-bit Goddess". We decided that 8-bit Goddess would be a really good name for the gaming blog that I wanted to start, except it would be false advertising since I personally suck at 8-bit games. So I changed it to the more general Gaming Goddess-- so I'm good at some type of games, I just don't have to specify which ones:).

Of course, if my boyfriend's awesome mom wants to start a blog, she can be the 8-bit Goddess, and I will bow to her in humble submission.

Favorite Games:
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy Tactics
FFTA
Azure Dreams
Ehrgeiz
Vagrant Story
Parasite Eve
Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider II
Resident Evil 2
Metal Gear Solid
Izuna: Unemployed Ninja

X-Men Legends

Tenchu: Stealth Assassins
Tenchu 2: Birth of the Ninja
Diablo II
.hack (the first batch)

Currently Playing:
I have decided to change this section to only what is in my consoles AT THE MOMENT as opposed to every game I'm technically in the middle of. Accuracy FTW.

DSi: Final Fantasy IV (It's amazing! Why did I wait so long?)
DS: ARMY OF MOOGLES, I mean, Final Fantasy VI
PS2: Odin Sphere
PSOne: Azure Dreams, Parasite Eve, Tomb Raider

Latest Fan Art:

Yeah, something new! Rydia's cool, people complain about the graphics in the new DS version of FFIV but I love the way the characters look...well, except for Rosa. The girl could use pants.

About Me:
I'm a starving artist/freelance writer/comic book artist/insert other vocation that makes very little money. If you're on Destructoid, chances are I am older than you. That kind of pisses me off.

Anyway, I'm working on some projects that I think might be of interest to some Dtoid readers, but I think I'll keep most of that stuff in my profile section, so the Cblogs won't be taken up with self-promotional posts from me. I'll add the info to my profile when I start my new comic and things like that.
