Steam Controller Impressions (Video)

As promised, here are my impressions of the Steam controller. It a really fun little device, but I don't see it knocking the DualShock 4 off of its first-place podium any time soon.Have any of you gotten a pre-order Steam controller? What...

 
 
 
 

Window 10 Impressions: HOLY F*** IT'S DRM-FREE?!

I've been a Windows user for as long as I can remember, probably because I've been playing games for as long as I can remember. I moved from DOS to Windows 95 when it was pretty new, and my family just kept upgrading our systems from there...

 
 
 

2015: The Year of Linux?

I love Linux. In fact, if I could reliably get my Windows games to run on them, I'd drop Windows like a bad habit. It's faster, it has more user support, nearly every program for it is free, and there are about a thousand different fl...

 
 
 

My parents, the artists

When I was young, I played with a TON of action figures. Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, Batman, Spider-Man, Thundercats... I could make this entire blog just a big list of the action figures I liked. There was a disconcerting lack of Nintend...

 
 
 

Ralph Baer passes away at 92

The father of video games, Ralph Baer, has passed away at 92 years old. This guy, for those who may not have heard of him, started EVERYTHING. He's the reason we discuss everything on this website and hundreds of others, he's the reas...

 
 
 
 

Super Smash Bros. Wii U: One Day In

I've been a huge fan of Super Smash Bros. since the very beginning. I took a chance and picked up the original on the N64 the day it came out, and I've been in love with the series ever since. When the new games were announced, it was ...

 
 
 

The Evil Within: Quick PC Thoughts

I was able to get The Evil Within at launch for a pretty good price, so I decided to jump on it. I've only played a little bit of the game, but I wanted to say a few things about the PC version. First, unfortunately, the PC version ree...

 
 
 

Modding the DualShock 4

I love the DualShock 4. Seriously, it's my favorite controller that I've ever used, and I've used pretty much anything you could name to me, plus a countless number of third-party offerings. In my 26 years of gaming, I've never used a contr...

 
 
 

Five more things about pedrovay2003

Ooh, it's been a while since we've done one of these, hasn't it? Well, we've all had life updates, I'm sure, so let's get to it! (I'm only doing five, since I've done one or two of these in the past.) 1. I've been published in an actual ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

PSA: Outlast is now available DRM-free

I've been holding off on Outlast since it's release, because it was only available through Steam. Well, that's no longer the case, as the game is now available DRM-free through GOG.com, A.K.A. the why-isn't-this-website-the-digital-distri...

 
 
 

Steam on Mac is the way to go

For those of you who have read anything I've posted to Destructoid, you'll know that the title of this blog is completely out of character for me. I can't stand Apple, and I'm constantly talking about how much I can't stand going through ...

 
 
 
 
 

My Xbox One Thoughts

It's called the Xbox One. ONE, not Three. It looks like a VCR that will blind you if you look at it too long. It forces you to pay for a Kinect, something nobody wanted in the first place. It requires an Internet connection to register a...

 
 
 

My Excitement for the Ouya is Through the Roof

I have a confession to make: As much as I love new technology, I couldn't give any less of a crap about having the latest smartphone. This Blackberry knockoff is the phone I've had for the last five years, and I love it. I don't want anyt...

 
 
 

Okay, okay... PS4 impressions

So, Sony's big PS4 blowout is finally finished, and I've got to say, I've never really felt more lukewarm toward a console release in my life. I don't know if I'm just losing interesting in gaming in general, or if it's the fact that if i...

 
 
 

My Personal Trek into the New Generation

The Wii U marked the beginning of a new console generation of video games, with Microsoft and Sony's offerings soon to follow. This past generation gave us some great games, but it left kind of a bad taste in my mouth concerning what the ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

An anniversary tribute to Phantasy Star Online

Every once in a while, a video game is released that changes both the way we play and the way the industry works. Super Mario 64 (N64), GoldenEye: 007 (N64) and Resident Evil 4 (every platform ever) are all great examples of games that re...

 
 
 

Seeing the Big Picture through Steam

That was a horrible joke, and I'm ashamed of myself. I'm not primarily a PC gamer. For reasons that I won't deviate to here (and probably because I've made them well-known around here, anyway), I'd much rather just play games on a consol...

 
 
 

Canceling my Wii U preorder? Maybe... (Textblog)

If you've ever read anything I've posted on Destructoid, there's one thing that should be very apparent by now: I'm a Nintendo fanboy. If it's Nintendo-related, I'm probably going to be interested. I've been crazy-excited for the Wii U, Nin...

 
 

About pedrovay2003one of us since 2:15 PM on 11.14.2006

Name: Peter
Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a five-day late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
Degree: Communication (with a writing emphasis)

I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.

As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two years old. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.


CURRENT FAVORITES:

Fatal Frame Series (PS2, Xbox, Wii, 3DS)
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES (PS2)
Metroid Prime Trilogy (Wii)
Dead Space (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3)
Zelda Series (Various Nintendo Platforms)
Journey (PS3)
Dishonored (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
Metal Gear Solid Series (Everything)




My most prized gaming-related possession: A factory-sealed copy of the original Famicom Disk System Zeruda no Densetsu (The Legend of Zelda).




Mario and I were tight back in the day, yo.
