Hawkeye's Year of Nintendo- Introductory Blog Post

I have a confession Destructoid. I've never finished a console game developed by Nintendo. I can cite many reasons for this: my first gaming experience was on PC and my first console was a Playstation, I didn't own a Nintendo console until ...

 
 
 

Tales from Skyrim: OMFG BLOODDRAGON

Skyrim is one of those games I will be playing forever. It goes right up there with Tony Hawk's Underground, World of Warcraft, and Sly Cooper for me that offer endless amounts of exploration, not just in a game world, but in gameplay as we...

 
 
 

My Mom Didn't Let Me Play M-Rated Games

I've been thinking for the last week of how to write about the Brown vs. EMA decision. It's been my belief and opinion that the California law was not only unconstitutional, but also redundant. In fact, I've found it absurd that anyone woul...

 
 
 

Aaamaazing! Setting Free the Princess' Heart

I define gaming, the pastime, as sitting on a couch, staring wide-eyed at a tv, a controller in your lap. From my humble beginnings on the original Playstation, that's what gaming has been to me. Since I first picked up a controller to play...

 
 
 

Piracy- Let's Talk Facts and Truth

I normally don't express a "radical" or "black and white" opinion when it comes to piracy and other grey-ish topics. I'm usually open to the opinions of others, and normally consider a wide range of explanations and arguments. But, there ar...

 
 
 

The Mind of a 40-Something Ignorant Asshole

I'm somewhat of a political man. I enjoy a good debate about our country. So, when I listened to a recent podcast by Dan Carlin, and heard them talk about our generation, I signed up to the forum to make a couple posts and have a right laug...

 
 
 

Phrases that Piss me Off

Here are some phrases imbeciles throw around review comments, as if they make sense or know what they mean. They're the type of statements that nobody can really back up or prove, but will shout to the heavens until the cows come home. ...

 
 
 

Finding Things in PRGs by Accident is AMAZING!

Ok, I'm channeling my inner Chad Concelmo on this one guys. Not just because of the RPG comment or the AMAZING comment, but because of what game I'm actually talking about. I was recently (and by recently I mean ten minutes ago) playing Shi...

 
 
 

Console Exclusivity Is Bullshit

You know what? Fuck it. Console exclusivity is completely horseshit. There's absolutely zero point to it. It blatantly hurts the developer of the game, it ruins the relationship between the console retailer and the consumer, and it all arou...

 
 
 

Why Antagonists Rule

I've been doing some thinking into antagonists recently, and how they affect our gaming experiences. Whether it's the Covenant from Halo, Bowser from Mario, or Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7, antagonists come in all shapes and sizes. They d...

 
 
 

The PS3 is the Cheapest Console of This Generation

You know, I realized something today. The PS3, like I say in the title, is the cheapest console of the current generation. Now, I know what all of you are thinking. "But Hawkeyed, the PS3 cost 600 dollars on launch day! The Xbox 360 only co...

 
 
 

About HawkeyedOneone of us since 7:42 PM on 10.03.2009

Wow, two years no changes to my bio. Anyway, here it goes.

Hi, I'm the HawkeyedOne, been around the internet and gaming since I was a wee lad of fourteen. I'm a connoisseur of fine media; I consume videogames, tv, and music at a level some would deem absurd. At the time of this writing, I'm 19, and have no idea what in hell I'm doing with my life. I am attending a small community college, and will graduate with an associates in computer programming. After that, who knows?

I've been reading Destructoid for three years now, and although I'm not much of a talker, I'm working on that. I'm also working on getting into online multiplayer, so send me a friend request on steam if you feel like it. I'm more into RPGs and platformers than I am into FPSs.
