D&Duesday Podcast Episode 1

Dungeons & Dragons is something I hold near and dear to my heart. Second to video gaming, D&D is something that can't be replaced. As such, I brought it to myself that I'd like to share that magic with others by candidly recording my grou...

 
 
 

LTTP: Tales of Vesperia review

I�m somewhat behind in getting this review up. I purchased Tales of Vesperia back in the beginning of the year, and it took me about a month to finish it. I was meaning to review it, but got distracted by Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil ...

 
 
 

Tis the Season for Xbox Live Arcade

Only a few months late from the holiday season, Microsoft and Amazon have teamed up to allow users to purchase and give game codes for Xbox Live games to other users. This is something I�ve wanted to do on the 360 ever since Nintendo implem...

 
 
 

50 Cent: Blood on da Sand Review

I�m not one to criticize entertainment mediums I�m not familiar with, but I don�t really care for rap music. I was brought up with little to no understanding of the genre other than the assumptions that it all consisted of fast rhyming son...

 
 
 

On Relationships

(lol satire) Many people have asked me (and by many people, like five), "Matt, why don't you have a girlfriend!?" "Matt, you should get a girlfriend!" "Do you want a girlfriend!?" I often respond with either no response or a simple "meh...

 
 
 

Datapads, Decoders, and Dying Journalism

*NOTE* I initially wrote this essay for one of my journalism courses on how I viewed the future of journalism. With the announcement of the 1UP deal/EGM closure, I feel we're growing closer to what I predicted for the future. The piece ove...

 
 
 

Banjo-Kazooie Xbox Live Arcade Review

Ah, 1998. Often heralded as the greatest year of gaming ever. That year included epic releases such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Metal Gear Solid, Half-Life, Starcraft, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Pokemon Red and Blue, and many m...

 
 
 

Fallout 3 Review

img]http://bulk2.destructoid.com/ul/user/2/22432-111673-fallout3logojpg-468x.jpg Stop! If at first glance you see Fallout 3 and think it�s a first-person shooter, you are wrong and should stop reading this review altogether. If you thoug...

 
 
 
 

Top 10 Amorphous Blobs of Gaming

Top 10 Amorphous Blobs of Gaming In an attempt to try an original Top 10 list (oxymoron lol), I’ve compiled a list of gaming’s greatest blobs. To be honest, these are the first ones that popped into my head since this is a fairly ob...

 
 
 

PAX 08: Dead Space Hands-on Video

Here's a video I recorded during a hands-on session with the Dead Space demo at PAX. [video]102840:321[/video] After reviewing this footage and listening to the EA rep's commentary, I have to admit that I've gone from not caring too much...

 
 
 

PAX 08 Mini-Montage Video

I've whipped up a quick montage of stuff that happened at PAX 2008. It's probably not the best and the music idea I ripped off of from the PAX 07 DVD teaser, but oh well. Also, this doesn't mean the end of my PAX game previews, I just g...

 
 
 

Chrono Trigger DS Hands-on Preview

I'll start out by proclaiming my indescribable love for Chrono Trigger. It is clearly my favorite game of all time. Back in 1995 when I first played this game, I remember loving every moment of it. I believe it was in Second Grade when...

 
 
 
 

Left 4 Dead Hands-on Impressions

Several of my first blog posts will be about the games I played at PAX with an overall wrap- up at the end. I found this to be the easiest way to get the blog rolling. Also note, these will be slightly gimped versions of their originals....

 
 

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.
