We have about two weeks until Christmas and I havenít asked for anything aside from a BA trenchcoat/peacoat or something of that sort. While thatís pretty boring, hereís a list of relatively pricey things that I legitimately want. 1. PSP 3...

 
 
 

The Most Fun Clusterf*ck of the Year!

I will make a confession: I have never finished Super Mario Bros. 3. Yes, what many consider to be the greatest game of all time, I cannot vouch for. I blame World 8 for being, both literally and figuratively, hell. With that said, I ignore...

 
 
 

Semi-Black Friday Adventures: A Trip to Target

DJ Hero review

DJ Hero was surreptitiously released last week and itís unfortunate that such an original game gets lost in the music game clusterfuck of Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Though itís not completely original since Konami started a turntable rhythm...

 
 
 

Brutal Legend Review

Psychonauts was my first experience with Tim Schafer and his creative development team at Double Fine. I loved the game for its hilarious story and creative game design. When it was revealed in 2007 that Schaferís next masterpiece was going...

 
 
 
 

The Beatles Rock Band Review

First, Iím going tell you that I was never into the Beatles, or any music for that matter. As such, Iím often seen as an outcast in that regard and I had little interest in The Beatles Rock Band when Harmonix announced the game. However, ...

Digital Distribution: The Future of Gaming?

NOTE: I wrote this back in May for The Escapist, but I just got my decline e-mail for the article pitch, so I'm sharing it with Destructoid on the rebound. Some of the content is outdated, because it was written before E3 so things like dow...

 
 
 
 
 

My Experince with Dandy the Fucking Crow!

73 Potential/Rejected Harry Potter Titles

I originally got this idea after some comments from Giant Bombís Ryan Davis when he was doing a Quick Look of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince for the 360. Obviously poking fun at the franchise, some of the names of Harry Potter book...

 
 
 
 
 

Persona 3 FES Run: Meet 'Steve Tomson' 6/13/09

****SPOILERS AHOY**** While, this series of posts is by no means original, thanks to the immense popularity of Giant Bombís Persona 4 Endurance Run, it definitely caused me to pay more attention to the Persona series, which has slipped ...

The Wii hasnít had much to brag about for the past year or so. The last game I actually bought for it was Mario Kart Wii, and the last game I played was Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World back in November. Last year, members of th...

 
 
 

Bionic Commando review

Bionic Commando is the follow-up to the 1988 classic sidescroller of the same name for the NES. Having not played the original and only the demo of the XBLA/PSN remake from last year, I should not be at any qualification to play this gam...

About TeknoDwarfone of us since 2:51 AM on 04.21.2008

I'm a Journalism Major at Eastern Washington University. I love playing games and writing about them. Whenever I have enough time in my procrastination cycles, I'll periodically update this blog with new entries. Video games will be my focus, but I'll also share the occasional Dungeons & Dragons anecdote or similar nerdy misadventure.
