Flea Market Finds for 6/6/15

Sorry about the lack of flea market finds last week, but sometimes the flea markets aren't quite the treasure trove that you expect them to be. I found a total of two things last week, and neither was worth writing home about. But this...

 
 
 
 

Should I give these games another chance?

I know that people really love these games. For one reason or another, they just didn't resonate with me the same way they did lots of other people. While this certainly isn't the entire list, I've compiled 7 games, all of which were...

 
 
 
 
 

Flea Market Finds for 5/23/15

The weather in Cincinnati was absolutely phenomenal this past weekend, which meant that there were sellers a plenty at the flea markets. Even at 5:45 am, there were probably a good 20-25 booths already set up, and by the end of the day...

 
 
 

Hall of Game: Felix the Cat (NES)

For this episode of the Hall of Game, I take a look at a game that's considered by many to be one of the best hidden gems on the NES. I'm also taking advantage of the internet's love of felines by doing a video on Felix the Cat. This e...

 
 
 
 

Error Machine Podcast 51 - Luke's Burning Bra

Flea Market Game Finds (5/9/15)

What's going on everybody, it's time for another enthralling episode of my Flea Market Game Finds. This weekend was threatening rain all day on Saturday, which usually makes for a pretty pointless venture to the flea markets, but lucki...

 
 
 

Papers, Please: I Know a Code

When the topic for May's Monthly Musings was decided upon, I got really excited. Being a man who is ever-so-desperately pretending he isn't about to turn 30 (actually, it's not that big of a deal), I have lots of fond memories of videogame ...

 
 
 

Flea Market Finds (5/2/15) featuring Shaq

It's Monday, which means it's time for another episode of Error Machine's Flea Market Game Finds. This week may not have been our most successful haul, but it's definitely the most bountiful, as you can tell from the length of the vid...

 
 
 

Weekly Top 5: Mario Games (Platforming)

It's been a couple weeks since I've actually posted one of my weekly top 5 blogs. I do sincerely apologize. It was the first time since I started doing them that I didn't post one, which began last summer. I had a pretty good streak go...

Flea Market Game Finds (4/18/15)

Good Wednesday to you all. Here's the latest edition of my Flea Market Game Finds. Not as plentiful for myself this week, but Chris had quite the score.  If you're not interested in watching the video, here's a short rundown of w...

 
 
 

Error Machine Podcast 49 - Flawless Victory

It's Mortal Kombat X week, so we took it upon ourselves to do a mini retrospective on the iconic fighting game franchise. We talk about our first memories of the series, the movies, the violence, the transition to 3d, some sentimental...

 
 
 

April Fools: Not "nerd"--"node."

No sentence better exemplifies how I felt about Raiden the first time I played Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. After the sinking of the tanker, which is one of the best opening chapters in gaming history, I was waiting with antic...

Weekly Top 5: Pleasant Surprises

In direct contrast to last weeks list where I spouted off a few games that I finished even though I hated them. This week I want to talk about some games that I took a chance on and wound up really liking. These are games that I didn'...

 
 
 
 

Hall of Game Episode 6 - WWF No Mercy

Greetings everybody, and a good Good Friday to you. I wanted to get this episode of my Hall of Game series up before the recent WrestleMania, but it just didn't work out that way, what with the hectic Easter week and all. Anyway, let m...

Weekly Top 5: Games I Finished Out of Spite

You all can thank Occams for this topic. He asked "What games have you finished out of spite" on a recent episode of my podcast. And that caused a light bulb to turn on above my head and I decided to write this list that you are curre...

Twitter: @TheDustinThomas

Greetings and salutations.

TheDustinThomas here, you probably don't know me, but I write things here on Destructoid from time to time. Occasionally I get on the front page:

The Most Inexplicably-Often Rented Games At Blockbuster

The Top 10 Videogame Pro Wrestlers

A Retrospective of Pro Wrestling Videogames from the Perspective of a Pro Wrestler

I'm also the host of a pretty sexy gaming podcast that I do with a couple buddies of mine. You can download and subscribe to it here. You should totally do that.

All of my games writing you can find on DToid, but I also write about other things on my personal blog. Here's my top 5 most read blogs:

Let Me Tell You About My $250 T-Shirts

Tempting of the Doon

5 Ways Getting in Shape Has Messed with my Head

Tim Lambesis: A Fan's Struggle to Understand

Why I Already Dislike Planet Fitness

You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.

A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.

I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.

I have a huge, manly beard.

God comes first in my life above all else. I'm a leader at my church, as well as the head of our media department.

I've been a metalhead pretty much my entire life.

I'm also a die hard fan of The Simpsons.

Other miscellaneous fact.
