Destructoid Cards: Secret Booster Pack 2

Destructoid Cards: Secret Booster Pack 1

Double post is double. Sorry about that everyone, I wouldn't normally do this but because it's slow Sunday hopefully you'll all understand... There's no real need for an intro here other than to say that I love Retroforce GO! and that I ha...

Destructoid Cards: Booster Pack #1

Alrighty, for those of you just joining us here's what's going on: I'm making cards. A lot of cards. I never expected the kind of response that I got yesterday after deciding to open up shop for requests, but the community has spoken, an...


Would You Like A Destructoid Card?

Those of you cool enough to visit the forums will have noticed that recently I made a couple of Destructoid cards. Now most of you old-school Dtoiders likely already have a card, but since I had so much fun doing these things -and because I...


The Second Coming's Impact On Videogames

DIS-MOTHERFUCKING-CLAIMER: This is meant as a purely satirical piece, I'm not out to offend anyone (less than three Christiangamer ;) ). As gamers it is our duty to ask ourselves: WWJD? Specifically, what would he/she/it do to the video...


Is The FPS Genre Stagnating?

It may be popular, but is there any genre more maligned for it's lack of innovation by "hardcore" gamers today than the venerable first person shooter? Well maybe the sports genre... (sorry Samit :( ) Still, at some point, you have prob...


Reviewing Games: Doing It Right

Note: This isn't directed at anyone who commented on Toph's review. The comments were more or less dick-head free :D Tophers brand spankin' new review of Ikaruga got me thinking about the always hot button topic of game reviews, and more...


Ikaruga: Overrated? (An audio-blog)

I'm pretty much walking out the door, but I wanted to post this today; so bear with me. Things to know: - This is an audio-blog because it's way quicker than trying to type everything, and time is a factor for me right now. - It's in em-p...


Happy Birthday Destructoid: A Song

It hit me at around 3pm today: an idea for a Destructoid song. I don't know why, the opening lyrics along with the song just came to me, totally unbidden, and I took it as a sign. So here we are. I had to learn the song, come up with lyrics...


Not my Turning Point gaming rig

So I figured that since this competition is pretty much taking over the c-blogs, and all of the cool kids are posting their gaming set ups, I might as well get in on the action. So without further ado, here's a heavily modified version of a...


Custom Audio: Disrespectful?

Peeks out from under c-blog rubble Is the Turning Point storm over? Right! Customizable audio. I was perusing Naia The Gamers c-blog the other day and it got me thinking: with the advent of hard drives, developers now have the opportuni...


Homemade Arcade Controller: Shmuperific!

My roommate is awesome. One day he decided to build himself a proper controller to play some of his favorite not-emulated arcade games. After a few dollars, a bit of research and some help from yours truly, we have the basic board made. GE...


[email protected]: What It Does (Jargon Free)

So after seeing this article on the front page it dawned on me that a lot of people probably know ABOUT [email protected] But how many people know what it actually DOES? You know, besides displaying a bunch of bars, numbers and colored balls at...


Umbrella Lab Coat II: The Back!

So I don't know why people were saying "nice" and whatnot on my earlier post about my new job, but whatever. Just thought that I'd update because things got even weirder today. The Parasol corp. people said that the initial trials were "hor...


Umbrella Lab Coat

So I got a new part-time job today, figured I'd make a few extra dollars during the weekend. So here's some pictures of my new lab coat. I think the company is called Parasol corp. or something like that. They have me working on some new...


Stepping Your Game Up: A Guide

Pretty much every gamer on the planet has the desire to get better at a given game or genre, and really the only way to do that is to put in the time and practice. Right? Wrong. There exists a most exquisite theory, which can be directly ...


About The GHostone of us since 1:55 AM on 01.25.2008

For the basics, check out my forum intro thread.

Or for the lazy, here's all you really need to know about me summed up in one picture:

Now that that's done with, let's move onto the blog itself. This blog isn't going to contain any news. Like EVER. Like NEVER EVER FOREVER NEVER. I have no intention of doing anything other than posting original content (mostly just pictures that I make with my extremely limited photoshop skills along with original stories and whatnot). The bottom line is that I think that there are plenty of people doing editorial/reviewer style content already, and so instead of adding to the glut, I'll just stick to what I know:

Dicking around :D

Now enjoy... or DON'T!

My one year anniversary: I did a bunch of traveling and met a bunch of Dtoiders whilst doing so. Here's my one year anniversary/travel summary audio c-blog.

Other work: I also write for a site called Negative Gamer which was started by Wardrox. It's super cool and full of dinosaurs. RAWR!

Destructoid Cards

I've made many a card for many a Dtoider after getting the idea from a forum thread in which Atheistium posted a template and a challenge. Currently I'm a little too busy with school/work/fighting enemies of truth and justice to make more, but I'll get another batch out eventually. Here are links to all my Dtoid card posts!
