Riobux's Yearly Awards: 3rd Time's the Charm

Another year has passed since the last Yearly Awards I did. In contrast to that one and the one before it, not much has happened. I continued to work over at Bagogames as a reviewer/previewer, and I continued to be part of the rec...

 
 
 

Venture into the Borderlands - Epilogue

I admit that it was very recent that I knew I wouldn't be able to end this series without doing a general review. The entire Let's Play has been a moment-by-moment perspective, nit picking the details without acknowledging how it all string...

Riobux's Yearly Awards: 2nd Serving

Since The Riobux Yearly Awards list last year, wow, things have occurred. Both good, and a bit of bad. I had stopped doing my analytical blogs as writer's block hit me hard as...well...as hard as an ailment hitting me harder and harder over...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Challengers Wanted: I'm The Guy With The Gun

I think it is interesting how people choose the combatants they stick with. They may go with aesthetics (e.g. I think Raphael is cool as hell, so I do tend to use him in Soul Calibre games) or the gameplay (e.g. in UFC games, I tend to enjo...

 
 
 

An Introduction Of Myself (With An AMA)

Good morning, afternoon and evening, wherever you are. As the title may indicate, this is something of an introduction. The type where I bang on about myself in a way that is humorous as to divert from myself ego-masturbating or self-loathi...

 
 
 

A Hiatus From The Destructoid Blogs

For now, I will be leaving the Destructoid blogs for a hiatus. I don't think it is much of a hidden thing that recently I've generally been slipping in terms of kicking articles out the door. I know last week was meant to be a Band Of ...

 
 
 

Affect The Affections Love In Videogames

This week I would like to talk about the depictions of love in videogames. Ah, the tickle of butterflies in your stomach. The sensation of awkward nervousness around someone. The obsessive thought-patterns about that particular person....

 
 
 

Riobux Recommends: Vlad The Impaler

This week I wish to recommend a choose-your-own adventure game called Vlad The Impaler. Every so often a game warrants talking about not so much due to a cool mechanic, its polish or just how deep it is. Sometimes a game just goes unde...

This week I want to discover two philosophical stand-points that game journalists hold that affects the reviews they create. This is something I've been tempted to do for a while; but really wanted to wait for just the right momen...

About Riobuxone of us since 5:18 AM on 03.23.2013

Hey, I'm Riobux. I joined Destructoid a good deal back due to Podtoid when Jim Sterling, Jonathan Holmes and Conrad Zimmerman used to do it, and when Phil & Spencer did the Destructoid Twitch channel. I'm a Sociology With Psychology graduate who has a particular interest in videogame culture and the creation of videogames. These days I just punt out recaps, but you can also find me creeping around news story comments.

When I'm not here attempting to act like a civilised being, making odd jokes only I snigger at or being way too late with posting recap, I can be found on Bagogames attempting to ramble as a previewer/reviewer.

You may also find me working out how the hell the new strange world of social media on Twitter works at @Riobux.
