Losing Sleep with Sleeping Dogs

It was the summer of my 6th grade year and I had just gotten home from a local game store where I bought True Crime: Streets of LA. I spent almost all night shooting thugs and running over people because I was completely blown away by the...

 
 
 

I Yearn to Love Contact

Contact is unique to a fault. Contact is a GBA turned DS game by the rad dudes at Grasshopper Manufacture. The same guys who gave us the excellent Killer 7 and No More Heroes. It was a mostly overlooked action JRPG that came out in 2006...

About Nicky Austinone of us since 11:13 PM on 05.29.2012

I'm Nicky Austin. I like really goddamn stupid, fun games and also really meaningful, emotional games. That's not really specific, but it's cool. I really love One Piece and music and I hosts podcasts about stuff (Full Memory Card, One Piece Book Club, Don't Refrain!, Super Weeb Time, etc.). I'm gonna write some stuff again because I now have more time to write about video games and I just can't stay away from Destructoid, I couldn't if I tried.
