[NVGR] If you give a girl a motorcycle.

At least a few people have wondered where I might have wandered off to in the last 4-5 months, and I've been encouraged to share a little taste of my other writing. Basically, aside from working nights, which eats up a good majority of my g...

 
 
 

Spider-man Web of Shadows

First impression based on 2 short videos, and my own wishful thinking After seeing this video on xbox live, I have to say I was tingly in my nether region. Spider-man video games have been alright thus far - excluding Friend or Foe, not s...

 
 
 

The Simpsons Game (xbox 360)

Approximately one year ago, The Simpsons hit the big screen with its full length movie premier, bluntly mocking viewers for paying $10(on average) to watch something that is otherwise free. The video game release followed shortly after, m...

 
 
 

To Those about to Sell, I salute you!

For a lot of people, retail will be the first job you have. For some its a career either by choice or general comfort. It could be a decent living, until those customers that ruin your day and make you wonder why you aren't paid significant...

 
 
 
 

Customizing xbox

Apparently I've delved into the supernerdy world of customizing my stuff. I spent the last week or so working on a little art project, and it really looks better than I would have expected from me - though clearly not professional. I promi...

 
 
 

Why Bullet Witch only cost $14

You ride that broom-gun, you dirty dirty girl. You’re introduced to the game with a brief history of the end of the world, starting in approximately 2009, and bringing you up to date in the current year of 2013 after the destruction has ...

 
 
 
 

First and second impressions of Blue Dragon

To begin with, I was not at all impressed with Blue Dragon. It took a lot of digging, patience, and forgetting that I generally dislike JRPG’s to be able to sit down and enjoy this. Now that I have moved past the bad, I can enjoy Blue Dra...

 
 
 
 

Where will you be when the zombies throw down?

Upon recently reviewing exactly how many hours I've plugged into Dead Rising (its sad really, you probably don't want to know) I was looking at the entire mall scenario and where it has flaws. In 1978, George A. Romero released Dawn of t...

 
 
 
 

Umbrella and Wii, a happy pair.

When the Wii was first announced as being a revolutionary arcade style gaming system, with a “wii-mote” that resembled a standard television remote, and a nun chuck for movement, a lot of us were scratching our heads as to where Nintendo mi...

 
 
 

What a bitch. Also, free xbox download

First, what a bitch, we should totally kick her ass. Then, after all the crap with Xbox live breaking down for a month, the free download is available now - funny how microsoft didn't announce anything. Its Undertow in the arcade list. I'...

 
 
 

On Players Guides

I was organizing game guides at work today and noticed something strange. While some guides are good for art, some for collecting (cards, pokemon, etc), some are good for those anal people that need to track down every last item in a game, ...

 
 
 

D-toid play date in Denver?

So, anyone paying attention to the Contestoid blogs by one Spykron will know he and I have been looking for things to do in Denver for cheap next week. Now, We're hopefully going to have an epic time fulfilling some of the suggestions for t...

 
 
 

Zombie vs. Shark

Best fight scene ever. Straight out of Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 (flesh eaters) Admit it, it's beautiful. The other scene I would suggest is the one with the EYE! Or you know, the whole movie. Definitely A+ material for anyone who enjoys B z...

 
 
 

When bad games feel good Movie Games edition

Van Helsing Using the Devil May Cry combat engine combined with Hugh Jackman voice acting, you can't really go wrong. Oh wait, yes you can. The story is basically straight out of the movie (which wasn't very good to begin with) only butch...

 
 
 

Melvin the Superhero

I retired Ahmed the Terrorist, simply because I'm not keen on the political jokes - so I'll do superhero jokes instead, those are more my cup o' tea. Edit; Here is a Link to Ahmed The Dead Terrorist. I find ventriloquists amusing, so I h...

 
 
 

Contestoid: Repost from Spykron; REMINDER

So, I plan on having a visitor for the week of the 13th to the 18th, our very own Spykron., whom I've known for years. He's already posted this contest (twice), but I figure since I'm involved, I would like to see what goes down as well, an...

 
 
 

Chromehounds and Me; Personal First Impressions

After Xbox live decided to go on a really screwy hiatus for the last month, I decided to go look at game trailers/demos that I might have missed during the outages – assuming Microsoft itself could update with anything on their end. I didn...

 
 
 

Vocal nintendo video

I'm sure this has already found its way here, but I enjoy it thoroughly, so I will share, too. If there is anything that Nintendo will always have, its the overly recognizable music.

 
 
 

Contestoid: Repost, from Spykron.

So, I plan on having a visitor for the week of the 13th to the 18th, our very own Spykron. He's already posted this contest, but I figure since I'm involved, I would like to see what goes down as well. Basically, we don't have a ton of mon...

 
 
 

Weak Points

This inspired me; to ask the question, why? Why is it that so many video games have silly weak points for bosses that are otherwise pretty cool? Sometimes you have to use a "secret sense" to expose the weak point, but a lot of the time i...

 
 
 

When bad games feel good Wii edition

I think we can all agree that the Wii has been a bit behind with making epic games. I have a wii, and think it has potential, if Nintendo would get off its ass and move with it. Otherwise, I bring you, bad games that feel good for the Wii,...

 
 
 
 
 

The game blame game

When a child is caught or confronted after doing something bad, what is their first instinct? Direct the repercussions somewhere else, be it a sibling, or the dog. This instinct is imprinted on us from an early age, and is inflated as the s...

 
 
 

When bad games feel good part 2

Sometimes general intoxication is required to enjoy these games. Sometimes excessive amounts of boredom leaking into our souls. And sometimes, its just to boost the gamerscore when friends start to compete. Either way, enjoying games is wh...

 
 
 

When bad games feel good.

We've all played games that leave a bad taste in the mouth. The ones that most won't buy, and on the off chance they are purchased, immediately return to the shelves. Some of them lacking content, some of them throwing glitches at you at ev...

 
 

About ShadokatRegnone of us since 11:16 PM on 12.06.2007

A 27 year old student, Katrina enjoys her writing, yet acknowledges it could be better. She spends most of her time looking for something to write about. She misses the Destructoid crew, but admits her other writing obligations keep her quite occupied. She'll keep an eye on the Monthly Musings, since those are always worth her time.

For those who enjoy her writing, it's now archived under that hypertext. Catch her Twittering in the third person on a somewhat regular basis.



Aww...you made spidey face palm.


These are just some of my other geekdoms.
