Web 3.0: A list in progress

Note: I originally posted this a few days ago, but the c blogs hate me and it disappeared from all public sight. Being the attention whore that us bloggers tend to be, I'm reposting it to give it its deserved attention. Or, whatever. (Here...

 
 
 

Ask me about LOOM™

Growing up during the golden age of adventures games has greatly impacted my personal tastes in videogames. Lord knows if you point out a three-headed monkey behind me or drop 12-octaves and begin chanting NUR-AB-SAL there will be an everla...

 
 
 

Colin's Bear Animation

Maybe you have seen this, maybe you have not seen this. But if you haven't seen Colin's Bear Animation, you really should, because it will be unlike anything else you've ever experienced before. Colin's Bear will be popping up again and...

 
 
 

Destructoid in NYC: Kenka, Sake, and Karaoke

This is ARRRRRRM TEAAAAAAM Last Saturday night Toph, Phist, Powerglove, Galagabug, Samit, Nick Chester & Grrlaction, Cowzilla3, Analog Pidgin (with Nullsleep and Bit Shifter in tow), and myself found ourselves conveniently sauced and fill...

 
 
 

Tako King Mask Party Time

Amidst the wrapping up of a dinner party, Charlie, Apple, Ross, and Husky showed up at my house. My friends and I were heading out for a bar, but my roommate had a bit of work to do so we had some dead time. So, naturally, I busted out the ...

 
 
 

PillowFort™ 2008

The year has finally gotten a kick start with the very first official Pillow Fort. It seemed that the powers of Stickam were at their lowest nearly a few months ago, but with the help of a few new members, Droobies DJ hour (+ Bandana and ...

 
 
 

Stay Puft: Ghostbusters party at Bourbon and Branch

The gaming companies are hitting up the streets left and right in San Francisco this week. With M16 bringing in the first flux of the gaming types, Tuesday kicked off my first gaming event with a sit-in preview of Fallout 3. Amidst the pr...

 
 
 

A Love Note to ScummVM

Dear ScummVM, It took a few Belgian beers and some local taqueria quesadillas before I heard from you tonight. I came home, sat down to promenade the Internet with the typical expectations of a post-buzzed Thursday night. A few Flickr co...

 
 
 

Prof. Layton proves .tiff and .harr are stupid

[Ripped from my Vox blog] My twin brother 2 years removed, Harrison (or .harr to some, hehe) is visiting from college for the Zombie-Jesus weekend. Sitting side by side, him with my sister's DS lite and me with my PSP, we began to discus...

 
 
 

Beyond the Game

When The Final Countdown or Glory of Love aren't enough to keep your gamer spirits up in times of dismay, the World Cyber Games Theme song aptly reminds how gaming goes beyond the game. I'd like to dedicate this song to all the members he...

 
 
 

GDC + Wondercon +

Last week was convention week for downtown San Francisco with a double delight of both GDC and Wondercon beckoning teams of gamers, nerds, and geeks to visit the bay for the week. Living and working only few minutes away from the Moscone ...

 
 
 

TellTale Adventures with Steve Purcell

GDC kicked off to a tasty start for the Destructoid team at TellTale Games' party held at Cellar. Naturally we couldn't say no to the prospect of zombie makeup, karaoke, and free drinks, but little did I know that the party's most exciting ...

 
 
 

Sam & Max Original Photo-Chop, Circa 1994

Back before the term 'photoshop' was utilized as a verb within the vast vernacular of the Internet, Papa Chow had the incentive to digitally graft the loving faces of his family onto the cover of Sam and Max Hit the Road as a testament to t...

 
 
 
 

I love Luna (and other holiday gifts!)

It had been a while since I had caught up to the influx of mail that is still being sent to my parent's house. I just moved up to San Francisco (yes, I'm a big girl now) and am too lazy to change my address, yet upon returning home for the...

 
 
 

Duke Nukem Screenshot: Textures anyone?

Swelling with epic lulz, this screenshot pulled from teh Duke Nukem Forever trailer is fairly indicative of where the Duke stands. Things to note: • Infinitely long rock star tour bus to the right, with large thick splats of 'blood' bu...

 
 
 

For your health: Eric Warheim's Music Video

Thanks to fellow Tim & Eric fan, Rocco of Mega 64, I received the link to the following music video of The Bird and The Bee's Polite Dance Song directed by the Eric Warheim himself. In pure cinco form, Warheim's off-the-street casting of a...

 
 
 

the end of my extended 22nd birthday celebrations

In a few days a whole month will have passed since I turned 22, but thanks to my geographically distant friends I had yet another set of birthday presents waiting for me on the east cost! With help from a Pigin I flew over to NYC last t...

 
 
 

I agree with Rev. Anthony: It's simple. Heres why.

I have strong opinions about the grrl gaming phenomenon, very strong opinions. While I've discussed such sentiments privately amongst trusted comrades and cohorts in the gaming industry, I frustratingly tend to bite my tongue when it com...

 
 
 

My Hamsa Kaiju Mini Gargamel !

It's pretty obvious that I have this largely obsessive penchant for collector vinyl toys of every capacity. It must have hit my consumer nerve sometime a few years ago, right around the time Kid Robot debuted. Since my very first Gloomy Be...

 
 
 
 

Halloween, courtesy of Ziff Davis

Jared beat me to the punch, but this weekend I had the fortuitous opportunity to attend the industry party at Shane Bettenhausen's humble abode. There were drinks. There were splicers. There were weighted companion cubes. And thus, there ...

 
 
 

A .tiff remembers E for Balls!

After a hearty day of the 9-5'er, I made my way down the coast to LA in search of the Destructoid crew. I arrived when the Video Games Live concert had just begun, so it was necessary to take a cab to the Nokia theater, costing as much as h...

 
 
 

No mo' Emo-gencies: E for All is Love

It's time to dishevel all emo or emo-related sentiments of late and pump up my preposterone for the oncomings of E for All. I'll be flying in following the 9-5 on Friday evening, fully prepared for all varieties of sauce, snorgling, and b...

 
 
 

E for All: Drink Preparations

Hello! To those who plan on attending E for All (and for those of you attending in spirit), please join me during an evening out to engage in the following game-related debauchery: Here are the rules: • Order four shots, three of one l...

 
 
 
 
 

Just a few Dtoid Drawerings

Since graduating and facing the real world, getting a full time job, and essentially losing track of my 'younger years' (already?), I haven't managed to draw very much on a daily basis. This week is my return to .tiff week. It's time to ju...

 
 
 

Overdue Update: PAX Love, Hot Dog Girls, & Pooters

I suck at updating the internets. It's the sad truth. Ever since PAX I've been in a flurry of Destructoid withdrawal, Web 2.0-ing, EA-ing, making sure that Dead with Numbers doesn't eat Husky again, ensuring Husky doesn't steal 'Pooters',...

 
 
 

R3ADY 2 PAX

So I'm getting a little late to the party (alas, the day yob is the day yob) but I am so excited that I'm this close to building a jet pack to get there tonight. To those of you who are there or who are coming, I can't wait to meet you. T...
