Get off my Backlog: Ocarina of Time

For as long as I can remember playing games, I've been a Legend of Zelda fan. I have so many fond memories of nearly all the games in the series. While I considered myself a fan, there was a pretty big problem with my fan status: I had...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: I Need a (Self-Insert) Hero!

For many video games can serve as a form of escapism. We play games to live out a fantasy in the game, and that fantasy can take many different forms. Some peoeple find an escape in a farming sim, where you can lead a fulfilling life o...

In the 1930's when movies were new, a new genre of movie was created, known as the monster movie. While there are examples of what coould have been monster movies before the 30s, the movie that seems to have really propelled the genre ...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers May 2019 Theme

This past month has been a little crazy when it comes to movies. Avenger's Endgame shattered box office records and became a generational event. I ended up working my life around the movie, avoiding social media as much as possible to ...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Accepting the First Person View

When the theme for this month's Band of Bloggers was revealed, playing games outside of our comfort zone, my first thought was playing a First Person Shooter. I've always scorned FPS games like Call of Duty, or any military shooter rea...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Team Battle

When I heard the theme for this month's BoB, cooperative games I was a little concerned. I don't usually play games with anyone else, and even if they have co-op in them, I usually can't find anyone who would want to play with me. ...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Kirby Kirby Kirby

The theme for this months Band of Bloggers was short and sweet, and so I played a little game called Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Kirby games are usually pretty short affairs, and Kirby himself is a sweet little guy who may or may not be an e...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Web Slinging Like It's 2018

So last year Spider-Man came out on PS4 and the world rejoiced. It was highly anticipated and reviewed incredibly well. Everyone had to get some of that Spider-Man. I was one of those people who had to get some of that Spider-Man. Ther...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers January 2019 Theme

Happy New Year! Band of Bloggers in now into its second year if you ignore that we didn't start until halfway through 2018. Being in a new year typically comes with a lot of goal setting and looking forwards towards the coming year and...

 
 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Final Fantasy 15 Makes Me Hungry

There is a lot that can be said about Final Fantasy 15. It had a long troubled development that continued long after the game came out. The developer recently resigned from Square Enix, leaving the game's final DLC's unfinished. It ha...

 
 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Super Metroid

This month's Band of Bloggers theme was Leading Ladies and I couldn't think of a better example than Samus. That might be because I didn't think very hard about it, but among video game heroines, Samus is among the first and one of the...

 
 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: When Robots Make You Sad

Robots come in a variety of stories. A lot of popular stories will put robots in the antagonist's role, as a supreme threat, like the Terminator or Sigma. Sometimes the antogonist robots are simply following their programming to kill a...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers - July 2018 Edition

It's now July, and we're struggling to recover from E3, either from hype overdose, or the emptiness of disapointment. The best way to overcome these actual medical conditions is to play video games and then write about them. This is sc...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Best Dad Kiryu

Spoiler Warning for Yakuza Kiwami! Yakuza Kiwami is a sometimes ridiculous story about Kazuma Kiryu. There are a lot of ways to describe Kiryu: An ex-yakuza member who took the fall for a murder, the Dragon of Dojima, the guy everyone ...

 
 
 

My Silly Hopes for Pokemon Let's Go

Pokemon recently announced Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee to the world. There were some mixed reactions, but overall people seem excited, especially the more casual pokemon fans. My older brother who has an eight year old son...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Exploring the Forest Labyrinth

The premise of the Etrian Odyssey games is usually pretty simple. There is a labyrinth near/in a city and it's probably full of treasure, so you should definitely explore it. It's simple and the games have never had much of an emp...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: My New Buddy Otr

Wait LaTerry, didn't you say you were going to play Angels with Scaly Wings for this Band of Bloggers? Shut up. Yes I did, but a lot of things led to that not happening. I have played the game, and got a little ways in it, but not...

 
 
 

The Transall Saga and LaTerry's Nostalgia

Over a decade ago, when a young LaTerry was in 6th grade, a teacher read a book to his class. This teacher, whose name I can't remember for the life of me, picked a book to read to his students for probably half an hour each day. Somet...

 
 
 

LaTerry's Second Annual Video Game Awards

It's mid January, so that means it's time once again for LaTerry's (now annual) Video Game Awards! The show where I definitely don't just make up enough categories to include all the games that I loved.  I guess I'll talk about so...

 
 
 

Destructoid Book Club Double Feature!

In both November and December of last year the blogs were a little on the fritz, so I didn't write a book club blog in either of those months. The blogs seem to be in working order again, so now I'll do both at once. I'm just going to ...

 
 
 

Double Dipping on the Switch

Yesterday I got Skyrim for Switch as a Christmas present. I originally played Skyrim on the PS3 shortly after it came out, then again when the Remastered Version came out last year. Now I have it again on Switch, and you know what? It'...

 
 
 

Challenging the Throne

It's been over ten years since my favorite game, Dragon Quest VIII was released in America. Ever since I played it I have considered it my favorite game, and have stubbornly held to that claim. There have been many games that have chal...

 
 
 

LaTerry's 2016 Game Awards

It’s still January, so it’s still totally viable for me to be doing an awards blog, right? Don’t care, already doing it. Please do keep in mind that these are my opinions and that I didn't get to play all the games th...

 
 
 

Why I still Love Twilight Princess

I've been planning on doing a series called "Why I Still Love..." where I look at the criticism that game has received and talk about why I still enjoy the game despite its problems. I was planning on using a different g...

 
 
 

Waifu Wars: Tereenya

Behold the wonder that is TereenyaAfter seeing you all fight over your laughably inferior waifus I thought it time to enlighten you and benevolently point out the superior waifu, Tereenya.  What do you m...

 
 
 

Final Fantasy VII: Then and Now

When good ol' Sqeenix announced that Final Fantasy VII would be ported to the PS4, I scoffed. This is partly because they announced it in the trolliest way possible, but also because I still have my original PS1 copy, and the PS1 classic on...
