Sunday Comics: The Best Metaphor Ever

There is so much to like about Dark Souls.  Amazing art design.  Bleak atmosphere.  Stabbing people in the ass.  That just makes it so much more disappointing that I just can't get past the brutal difficulty.  ...

 
 
 
 

Dtoid x Dwarf Fortress: RingedChant Chapter 1

Strike The Earth Gather ‘round children.  This is a story about a group of dwarves, who bravely struck out on their own to carve a new life in the side of a mountain.  Dreaming of grand halls carved with images of cat ...

 
 
 

Get Well Soon, Elsa

We haven't talked much, you and I.  I think we may have played a board game at PAX one year, but honestly I could just be confusing you with someone else.  I have little faith in the veracity of my memories. But these memorie...

 
 
 

An Unofficial Destructoid Christmas Card

I seem to be fond of starting projects for you guys. Probably because it’s the best/only audience I have at the moment to shower with unsolicited art. And occasionally someone enjoys it. I like it when that happens. Anyways, here’s ...

Challengers Wanted: Toad Up

When choosing a particular character strength, I usually lean toward agility and speed over straight up power or strength.  This is probably due to my own real life characteristics, but I also just find it to be a more interesting app...

 
 
 

Better With Age: Yoshi's Island

2D platformers have always been close to my heart.  They are what I grew up with, and is the closest thing to a comfort food that I’ll ever have in video games.  The modern resurgence in sprite based 2D platformers has inspi...

 
 
 

How Earthbound Makes Me Feel Heroic

I'm fairly emotional man. It doesn't take much for me to start tearing up during a moving moment.  But aside from obvious trite, like pets being reunited with returing masters, what really gets the water works going is scenes of ...

 
 
 

How Metro 2033 Reminded Me Why I Love Shooters

I grew up with first person shooters.  I'm old enough to have had access to Wolfenstein 3D as a young child.  I played the shareware version to exhaustion, running alongside the walls while mashing the space bar looking for ...

 
 
 

PRINTOID - NOW FOR SALE

  Hi chums!  If you know you want a print, jump down to the bottom and follow the instructions as I ONLY HAVE TWELVE PRINTS.  Otherwise, stick around for a story. So as you may know, I started Printoid several months ag...

 
 
 
 

PRINTOID - Semi-Final Image Needs Your Input!

New to Printoid? Hey all! So in the time since my last post, I worked on the image more and came up with something completely different. I'm leaning toward this image more because it alludes more to the community spirit of Destructoid,...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Love: My Marin Lies Over The Ocean

(For full effect, play this in a different tab) I've been fortunate/spoiled enough to have been able to play video games since I was young. And being of that age where one begins to notice girls for the first time, I spent a lot of time f...

 
 
 

Winter: Bubble Monkey and Tessie

I had this all planned out. Winter theme huh? Easy. Do something that takes place in Winters from Earthbound, be a smartass and call it Winter:Winters. Done. Next thing I know, the first idea for a comic of the gang screwing around, ...

 
 
 
 

Because (PHOTO)JOURNALISM: PAX Prime 2012

(Warning: excessive sentimental foreward, then a shit ton of photos) For the third time, I had the pleasure of attending PAX Prime. It was great to once again see the now almost familiar sights, be completely surrounded by the culture I g...

 
 
 

BOSS: Middle Management

Being a boss is a pretty nice position to be in. Dozens of underlings at your beck and call, your own sweet lair and the opportunity to deliver an epic monologue before kicking some ass! But let's face it: chances are that you aren't at t...

 
 
 

Role Reversal: Beast of Burden

We tend to take advantage of the kindness of others. Especially when it comes to characters in video games. Take Yoshi, for example. Without asking for a thing in return, he selflessly carries you on his back for countless miles, aidin...

 
 
 

Behind Closed Doors: Bullet Billions (Final)

The Mushroom Kingdom is a strange place, least of which is its name. There are so many inexplicable occurrences. Sentient plants living in pipes? Ambulatory cacti? Fucking DINOSUARS?! SHIT'S CRAZY! And that's just the tip of the ic...

 
 
 

Behind Closed Doors: Bullet Billions (WIP)

(Ugh, didn't have the time to finish this proper [THANKS E3], but I'll throw it up anyways, and hopefully I'll be able to finish it up before the recap post) Behind video game's closed doors. Such a wide topic. If you're an amazing art...

 
 
 

True Nature: Olimar The Terrible

Stories are often found in great numbers among a civilization. Tales of the beginning of life, of triumph, of prosperity, of surmounting anything that stands in ones path no matter the obstacle. Stories such as these can be found where ev...

 
 
 
 

Forgive Me Father: Fratricide

Like many long time gamers, I have a long list of wonderful memories that stem from the wide world of gaming. I could drown in the amount of warm, loving times spent sitting in front of a screen lost in a virtual world. However, embedde...

 
 

About MeanderBotone of us since 8:05 PM on 04.08.2010

Hi there! I'm MeanderBot. I enjoy video games. My video game playing history begins like many others: I was lucky enough to have an early computer to play games on, someone across the street got an NES, then I stumbled across a used stack of Nintendo Power at a swap meet, and soon enough I was spending more time with a controller in my hand then lying in my bed.

Aside from that, I am a visual artist desperately trying to be successful. I consider myself to be the visual art equivalent of a bard. Won't you tell me your tales of whimsy so I may illustrate and add them to the annals of time?
