Dtoid Secret Santa 2018 Turbo Arcade Edition

Ho, ho, ho, ho, a Santa's life for me It's that time of the year again! No, not China's Singles Sales day, that was on November 11. It's time for something not nearly as cynical, though as materialist -- Christmas! Amna's father, maybe...

 
 
 

Bass' Bold and Brash Brews

I play Divination! It allows me to draw two cards from my deck. So, you've learned how to play Magic: the Gathering. You're able to play with casual decks without asking about the phases of a turn or if damage stays on a creature like ...

 
 
 

Bass' tales from the East

If you're reading this on a phone, your data cap has been busted! So, as you probably know, I went on a trip across Asia in the past three weeks. And by trip across Asia, I mean a trip to Japan and Hong Kong and nowhere else. The trip ...

 
 
 

A timeline of the Bass Cinematic Universe

The last thing you'd want in your community blog section is some jerk's elaborate lore. But as it turns out, that might be what you get. [2015-12-15] Bass surfaces on Destructoid, reappearing for the first time on Destructoid under a n...

 
 
 

Here's a hot take for ya

If you asked 7-year-old Bass who the best mommy in the world was, he’d answer his own without hesitation. He’s a lucky fellow, he’s never lived in tough conditions, parents never broke up. It’s not a take that c...

 
 
 

Hypno's March giveaway #1 of ???, concluded

I'm very disappointed in all of you. And me. But mostly Hypno.  When the contest was ran? run? runnered? two months ago, that guy had the genius idea of asking people to claim a prize in the comment section. That turned out to be...

 
 
 

Nostalgia Trip .01: Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc

"See you in Rayman 4!" Kids these days don't know how good they have it. Many shout on the rooftops that platformers are the laziest genre, but in my time, these games defined the medium. Back in the 4th generation days, you were on te...

 
 
 

A quick guide to Magic the Gathering

My deck has no pathetic cards If there's a name that's synonymous with the trading card game industry, it's Magic the Gathering. It's been around for longer than I've been alive, and I'm pretty sure it'll be around after I die. Mortali...

 
 
 

Review: Owlboy

Flew too close to the sun If there's ever a game where my opinion goes against the critical reception, it's Owlboy. Its release in 2016 was met with overwhelming acclaim from critics, with an average review score of 88%. The indie darl...

 
 
 

So I've made yet more Destructoid cards

It's been forever since I made Destructoid-themed Magic the Gathering cards! Since I've been in a trading-card game mood lately with my review of Fable Fortune and Magic the Gathering Unstable drafts, I figured I'd give this ...

 
 
 

Dtoid Secret Santa 2017 edition

It's the season for giving, unless you're a kid, then it's the season for receiving. In any case, capitalism wins. Destructoid's Secret Santa is a time honored tradition that keeps switching hands, but one thing stays the same: You are...

 
 
 

Redesigning Mario Odyssey's final level

Warning: You're going to see me write about Super Mario Odyssey's final level a lot. If you prefer to tackle it without knowing anything, stay away from this.  Everybody knows I'm kind of a "big deal" when it comes to level design...

 
 
 

Switch port when?

Like a lot of people out there, I am a big fan of the Nintendo Switch. It kind of pisses me off to see publishers who don't see the potential of the machine, and refuse to immediately announce ports for all their titles past present an...

To my eyes, NieR: Automata became as gods

I bet you're having a tough time right now/But.../you can do it if you try! [Canada] While I was trying to figure out a way to start this blog, I went for a walk outside. This walk took me to the elementary school I went to, where I en...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Some quick words on politics.

I realize I must look like a bit of a hypocrite since I often complain about politics talk, but I figured writing this blog would be a good idea to explain where I stand, and why I'm so averse to political talk. I'm just tired of seein...
