The Fear: Atmosphere.

"You're walking down a dark, quiet hallway, littered with debris of what was once a beautiful hotel. Weapon in hand, poised as an agitated snake, You call out; "hello? Anyone there?" With no response, you continue walking cautiously, when...

 
 
 

Fable II: A Critique

Lionhead studios, the studio notorious for its blabbermouth designer, Peter Molyneux, has released a new game backed by enough hype to fill a small moon...or a space station. I personally enjoyed the original Fable well enough, it had man...

 
 
 

Adventures in (x)boxing.

This past weekend, I had to put down a good friend. His name was Harold IV, and he was an xbox 360. This past Saturday, Harold IV's processor/video chip gave out and he stopped producing hours of entertainment and fun. Unfortunately, Ha...

 
 
 

Retroreview; Silent Hill 4: The Room

Down the Rabbit Hole For me, October means a number of things; parties, Resident Evil, dressing up, events, and Silent Hill. One of my favorite traditions for the past 4 years, is my annual revival of Silent Hill 4: The Room. Unfortunate...

 
 
 

Feel the Hatred: Self-proclaimed Hardcore Gamers

Culprits: Just over a week ago, I decided to drop in to a local game store to take a look at the games that have been released before the big holiday rush, one of which was Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. I picked up the box, and was r...

 
 
 

Thanks, Destructoid

During my time here at Destructoid, between random hiatuses, I have come to know some of the community members for certain attributes. I look forward to hearing from most of them (even the asinine ones, believe it or not) and have assembled...

 
 
 

Mushroom Men

In life, I try to be a level headed, rational human being. Rarely will I jump ahead of myself, and get excited about something I haven't tried, which goes double for the video gaming world. In recent months I've followed a few titles, no...

 
 
 

Overlord

Reviewers have called Overlord the sleeper hit of 2007, sadly overlooked by gamers of every kind. I have heard rave reviews on the title, generally placing it on the top of the scale compared to many other choice games. I have also thorou...

 
 
 

Force Unleashed First Impressions; Demo

Star Wars has been a big deal in a lot of geeks lives for the better part of 30 years; crossing media streams from Movies to cartoons to video games and beyond. Some of these installments haven't been so pretty – or were pretty with absol...

 
 
 

Wii; Hardcore Accessories

If this guy isn't hardcore, I don't know what that word means. Nintendo has picked up a bad rep in the past few years for it's apparent lack of 'Hardcore' games. Presumably meaning games like; Grand Theft Auto, where you clearly learn to...

 
 
 

Dos and Don'ts for Soul Calibur 5

Seeing as sequels don't seem to be going away anytime soon - while at the same time reviewing Soul Calibur 4,I have a few suggestions for its inevitable sequel. Don't use Star Wars characters. This was, by far, the worst overshadowing of g...

 
 
 

Xbox and Screenshots

Close, but you're way off. In the past I haven't made much of an attempt at timely reviews, as I don't generally purchase games still encased in any sort of shrink wrap. Instead, I'm generally one to sit around twiddling my thumbs for 6 ...

 
 
 

Dating in two parts; [NVGR]

Part I: Superheroes and the Disney Complex. As a child, everyone has strange absurd fantasies about growing up to be successful and marry the most beautiful people – who, by the time you're old enough to be married, will be old and decre...

 
 
 

Boot to the head

Yes, I know, I know, another video post. Again with the busy, but I enjoyed watching this video - very much actually; Substance post(s) in the works, we swears it, precious!

 
 
 

Weird and Stupid Video game moments

After watching this, I had the sudden urge to go through all my old video games and find as many typos and stupid things myself. Or at least play some old NES games... At least a few of these are worth watching this for. Yes, I realize ...

 
 
 

My gaming HQ, let me show it to you.

Since the majority of people here have taken the time to show off their gaming rigs, I thought I'd share a few key points in my gaming life; Part of that is of course comfort. The most stylish way to live in comfort, is the way of the 70's...

 
 
 

Devil May Cry 4

I personally find there are things in life that can be amazing if approached from the right angle. In the case of Devil May Cry 4, the right angle would be; It really can't be taken seriously, so you can laugh to yourself while you rev your...

 
 
 

[NVGR] Joss Whedon

For anyone who enjoys Joss Whedon, or any of his Kitschy writing style, I just spent the last 30 minutes watching the greatest video blog ever Starring Neil Patrick Harris, and it has made my life more complete. I realize this isn't a comp...

 
 
 

[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. Youre 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 JRPGs 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...

 
 
 

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.
