WTH is up with Shenmue 3?

I will say up front: I can't get images to work seemingly, and I also don't care. Images are for the weak. Or something. Anyways, I bought my Dreamcast back in grade 10, around 2001, 2002. This was the end of the systems short life cyc...

 
 
 
 

Rolled Out! Looks Great, and Sega Can Frig Off

I take that line back immediately. I love Sega. I mean, I just dropped like 250 bucks on a Mega SG. Ecco the Dolphin is my favorite game. But Sega, right up until Sonic Mania, was fucking the dog with their mistreatement of many key fr...

 
 
 
 

This is the end

The irony about resigning as a writer for Destructoid, is that here I am, writing an article on Destructoid about not writing for Destructoid anymore...or something. It's been a I guess two-ish years now since I practically begged Nier...

 
 
 

I want your Sonic Forces creations NOW.

Look, Sonic Mania is coming and that is all well and good. But Sonic Forces comes out soon, and it looks pretty bad ass too so far. Apart from being a new 3D Sonic in the vein of Colors and Generations, it also has a tool where you can...

 
 
 

Moving On

I won't spend a lot of time boring you all with the details, but after a very brief return to the C Blogs, and due to a clerical error Niero is too ashamed to admit to making, I was accidentally made a contributor for Destructoid much to th...

 
 
 

"Where Have You Been?"

I didn't realized how long I'd been gone until I looked around at all the faces here and barely knew anyone anymore. I popped back in last week to write a Bubsy, and all of a sudden I am sitting in a virtual internet room on the cyber ...

 
 
 

Hire Me, Daddy Niero

Look, I'm not gonna beat around the bush here. I ain't gonna pussyfoot, walk on eggshells, flamenco on olives here, I'm gonna get straight to the point. I know you're hiring right now, papa Niero. And I want in on the cheese. I wanna brin...

 
 
 

I'm A Mega Man (Mega Fat, Mega Lazy...)

I'm pleased to announce that I discovered a valuable truth in my life I wasn't aware of until previously; that hot peppers cannot physically cause your ass to bleed, although they may aggravate the burning pain caused from anal fissure...

 
 
 

Addiction, Charity, Torture

This year I decided to do a charity program called Extra Life. The "activism" portion of the drive is that I will be sitting down on October 19th and play video games for 24 hours. Sounds like a dream, right? But not for me. Anyone who...

 
 
 

It's good to be back.

Writing again, I mean. The first blog I posted in awhile was front paged, and that was a real confidence boost. See, I had written anything in nearly a year, but a guy I work with encouraged me to get back on the horse. So I did. And i...

 
 
 

Star Wars Reviews Suck

Let's get this out of the way now. I have been waiting for details of Star Wars: Force Awakens for a year. Anything, any little plot detail. So as I waited in bed waiting for that shit to happen, waiting to go on the 17th, I was franti...

 
 
 

I Ain't Mad

I ain't mad. Just crazy.I spent three solid days playing Final Fantasy VII upon release. Three days of bloodshot eyes, dehydration. Eventually a bit of depression. You just shouldn't game that much, and I haven't since. It isn't healthy.The...

 
 
 
 

Blogger Blue Balls

Starless is some seriously nasty shit.I was a big fan of Bible Black back in the day, mainly because I'd played this or that erotic anime visual novel and disliked the fact that all the girls looked like they were twelve. Even when I was ar...

 
 
 

I'm Making a Garme!

Well okay. That's not entirely honest. I mean, I AM making a game, but it's a bit misleading. This is a video game site after all (and I do adore video games) but I'm actually making a new pen and paper RPG. Seeing a front page article on D...

 
 
 

Everything Sucks

Feel free to fail this, whoever.But everything sucks.It's really a shame what is going on right now. There are obviously two sides with differing opinions sparring and a bunch of people seem to be packing up and leaving. After figruing out ...

 
 
 

Mangasms: Building Worlds

I've been back doing this blogging thing for two months almost. Two months and over thirty blogs, and it's tiring! Life has been all over the place and I tried to keep up the momentum of "one post per day" for some obscure self imposed reas...

 
 
 

A Case for Dragon Quest Builders

One of my best friends growing up lived in a cool little house not a few blocks away from me. We spent a lot of time hanging out and playing games and his family was as nice as they came. His brother had some cool stuff we would fuck around...

 
 
 

An Endless Adventure

Yesterday I did something I haven't done in many years and filled out a character sheet for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. Starting a campaign in the most recently released 5th edition I have had the roleplaying bug. After many years of rel...

 
 
 

Game Boy is Awesome

The Game Boy is really awesome. I mean it! I got one for my birthday a little after launch and was, admittedly, not all that impressed. I mean it was great fun to have handheld games on the go, but even as a kid it was tough to look at that...

 
 
 

Kung Fu Rascals

I want to share a part of myself with all of you. Originally I was going to amputate bits of my body and send them all to you via the 11 O'clock Aerogyro, but I've found a simpler, less painful way. I want to show you Kung Fu Rascals. Some...

 
 
 

What The Flock

A new game is released and everyone loses their minds. The Flock is an interesting experiment. Like most experimental games, there are big intentions to deliver a unique experience that purport to change the world; a promise that will likel...

 
 
 

Theater of the Mind

Jason Rohrer is a fucking crazy person. He does crazy things presumably from a loonie bin tied up in a straight jacket and then puts them out into the world. He made a game meant to be played two thousand years in the future and buried it i...

 
 
 

Randy Pitchford is an Asshole

I've made a point lately to be positive. In his own words in the past on Twitter, Randy Pitchford himself encouraged positive reinforcement as a way to inspire people to improve rather than negativity and insults. But sometimes, there is a ...

 
 
 

The Struggle is Real

The first time I ever sat and wrote anything was a short story for my Grade 1 class. It was open ended but had to be a retake of the classic Chicken Little story. So I just changed the birds out. That was the extent of my age six creativity...

 
 

About Joel Petersonone of us since 8:14 AM on 11.07.2013

I write the things other people don't write, with liberal fart jokes thrown in for good measure. I like old games, old computers, old consoles, and old pizza.


Here are some blogs what I done did and were promoted to the front page.
