Dtoid World Of Warcraft Guild

All right. It's about time I hunkered down and committed to this. It always confused me that a gaming site as big as we are has almost no MMO representation. I know there is some of you that play. In fact, it seems like Brad Nicholson se...

 
 
 

Forum Update: New Sections! [ShortBlog/NVGR]

Just a quicky update. Since Destructoid has been expanding it's video content, I figured it was only fair to expand the video/podcast section of the forums as well. I've added two new sections Rev Rants Still got more to say about a ...

Forums get a visual update!

So for the past month or so, I’ve been working on a new style for the forums. I figured the anniversary would be the perfect time to unveil it along with some other new tidbits of Forum funtime. Before I get into that, this cblog is going...

First off, as Nick said earlier today THE FORUMS RETURN! http://www.destructoid.com/forum/index.php We are still blowing out cobwebs and there is still work to be done, but for now they are very functional and you are welcome to try th...

 
 
 

Do you miss the forums?

Now you guys know what I've been up to for the last couple days. (ok, none of you really wondered) I'm such a tease. If you've got questions, put em in the comments Or just laugh at my mediocre photoshop skills.

 
 
 
 

Tokyo Game Show - Street Fighter 4 Trailer

Ah, Street Fighter 4. Being a huge fan of the 2d fighting genre and especially of street fighter, I'm pretty happy every time I see something new about Street Fighter 4. This is a new trailer from the TGS that just got posted over at Ga...

 
 
 

Fallout 3 E3 Teaser Trailer

Lookie lookie what just popped up over at Gametrailers. A brand new first trailer for Fallout 3. I like the style of it, it's fairly reminiscent of the early Bioshock trailers (as they both are going off that old timey steampunk vibe)...

 
 
 

Ode to Chad Concelmo (NVGR)

Oh Chad Concelmo, You are too awesome for words. You are one of my favorite people on this site (next to Colette and Niero). So, because I keep hearing this damn ad on the radio every morning, I thought I would make a fitting tribute to ...

 
 
 

Women in games - The Gamasutra 20

I stumbled across this in my morning game news search and thought it was worthy of pointing out. From the article - The first-ever Gamasutra 20, honoring the Top 20 women working in the video game industry today, has taken a peer-based a...

 
 
 

Smash Bros Brawl - Masterpieces indeed!

Hoping I get this one under the wire (you guys are far too fast for me most of the time) So the latest update to the SSBB Dojo site has something pretty damn awesome in my opinion. They call them "Masterpieces" and essentially what it is ...

 
 
 

My god, the conflict!

I'll let you in on one of the biggest, most frustrating things that comes with working in the industry. No, it's not being stuck in QA on a crappy game. It's not the long hours. Nor is it the free games and swag. (ok, that rules to be ...

 
 
 

Latest Major Nelson Podcast (#261) My thoughts

I just got done listening to the latest Major Nelson podcast and I really wanted to make more people aware of it. His podcast as a whole is pretty entertaining and informative and I recommend it if that kind of thing interests you. I want...

 
 
 

Pointless "look what I got" post

I just had to show this thing off. It's so awesome. Yes, I realize having a sony IP sitting on an xbox is blasphemy, but I don't care. I like the idea of Kratos threating me to get a higher gamerscore.

 
 
 

Someone needs to hire this dude...

This, is by far the most amazing thing I've seen done with a wii remote and sensor bar. Someone needs to call this guy, be it the 'tendo or a developer. I'll let the video speak, but for a minute imagine a FPS like this? Imagine Biosho...

 
 
 

Merry Ninjamas!

I do love me some hot ninja action. Especially on Christmas. I genuinely hope this one is as insanely difficult as the first one. It made it all the sweeter when you actually pulled off some badass move. You stay classy, Ryu Hayabusa....

 
 
 

About Technophileone of us since 1:45 PM on 12.18.2007



Hi! I'm Will (or Technophile, or Techno, or Tech or that guy).
The forums are a damn cool place and you should check them out!

I live in LA and I work in the gaming industry in community management.

I <3 Destructoid

and now some rambling:

Technophilia and technophobia are the two extremes of the relationship between technology and society. The technophobe fears or dislikes technology, often regarding some or all technology with fear. This may be as a consequences of fear of change, a prior catastrophic experience with technology or because it may lead to a process of dehumanization.

The technophile sees most or all technology as positive, adopting technology enthusiastically, and seeing it as a means to potentially improve life and combat social problems. A technophile will choose technology above other methods rather than rationally selecting the best tool for the job.

* I'm a modern man.

A man for the millennium, digital and smoke free. A diversified multicultural postmodern deconstructionist. Politically, anatomically, and ecologically incorrect. I've been uplinked and downloaded. I've been inputted and outsourced. I know the upside of downsizing. I know the downside of upgrading. I'm a high-tech lowlife. A cutting-edge, state-of-the-art, bicoastal multitasker. And I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond. I'm new wave but I'm old school. And my inner child is outward bound. I'm a hot-wired, heat-seeking, warm-hearted, cool customer. Voice activated and biodegradable. I interface from a database, And my database is in cyberspace. So I'm interactive, I'm hyperactive, And from time-to-time I'm radioactive. Behind the eight ball, ahead of the curve. Riding the wave, dodging a bullet. Pushing the envelope. I'm on point, on task, on message, and off drugs. I got no need for coke and speed. I got no urge to binge and purge. I'm in the moment, on the edge, over the top, but under the radar. A high concept, low profile, medium range ballistic missionary. A street-wise smart bomb. A top-gun bottom feeder. I wear power ties, I tell power lies, I take power naps, I run victory laps. I'm a totally ongoing bigfoot slam dunk rainmaker with a proactive outreach. A raging workaholic. A working rageaholic. Out of rehab, and in denial. I got a personal trainer, a personal shopper, a personal assistant, and a personal agenda. You can't shut me up, you can't dumb me down. 'Cause I'm tireless, and I'm wireless. I'm an alpha male on beta blockers. I'm a non-believer and an over-achiever. Laid back but fashion forward. Up front, down home, low rent, high maintenance. Super size, long lasting, high definition, fast acting, oven ready, and built to last. I'm a hands on, foot loose, knee jerk, head case. Prematurely post traumatic, and I have a love child who sends me hate mail. But I'm feeling, I'm caring, I'm healing, I'm sharing. A supportive bonding nurturing primary care giver. My output is down, but my income is up. I take a short position on the long bond, and my revenue stream has its own cash flow. I read junk mail, I eat junk food, I buy junk bonds, I watch trash sports. I'm gender specific, capital intensive, user friendly, and lactose intolerant. I like rough sex. I like tough love. I use the F word in my eMail, And the software on my hard drive is hard core, no soft porn. I bought a microwave at a mini mall. I bought a mini van in a mega store. I eat fast food in the slow lane. I'm toll free, bite sized, ready to wear, and I come in all sizes. A fully equipped, factory authorized, hospital tested, clinically proven, scientifically formulated medical miracle. I've been pre-washed, pre-cooked, pre-heated, pre-screened, pre-approved, pre-packaged, post-dated, freeze-dried, double-wrapped, vacuum-packed, and I have an unlimited broadband capacity. I'm a rude dude, But I'm the real deal. Lean and mean. Cocked, locked and ready to rock. Rough tough and hard to bluff. I take it slow. I go with the flow. I ride with the tide. I got glide in my stride. Drivin' and movin', sailin' and spinnin', jivin' and groovin', wailin' and winnin'. I don't snooze so I don't lose. I keep the pedal to the metal and the rubber on the road. I party hearty, And lunch time is crunch time. I'm hanging in, there ain't no doubt. And I'm hanging tough, over and out.

RIP G.Carlin
