Post-PAX blog: Gaming invades Seattle!

Another year, and another PAX has passed by. I played games, met with people and thankfully I'm not recovering from some nasty post-convention flu. (I am sleeping a lot more, though.) Alas, there wasn't any big outside-of-PAX events that I...

 
 
 

Salty Bet is freaking nuts, you guys.

So for the past couple of days, I've been wasting my time playing games. Not just any kind of game, though: The gambling game. I don't know who introduced me to it, maybe it was somebody at Giant Bomb, maybe it was a friend, but I've been ...

 
 
 

Assassin's Creed IV and how I hate yearly sequels.

Oh boy, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has been leaked and announced to the world. The next riveting installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise, coming out later this year. We're not even six months past Assassin's Creed III's release a...

 
 
 

My PAX 2012 swag roundup.

Hey Dtoiders. Was great seeing some of you guys, and my apologies if I ate and ran on Sunday, I had some personal stuff to deal with. Here's hoping our meeting's a bit more friendly next year. :) So, PAX was last week. I'm still recovering...

 
 
 

Coming out of hiding with games, and PAX.

Hi Destructoid. Sorry I don't write back much, I'm so so busy with other things. Okay, that's a god damned lie. To tell you the truth, I've had little incentive to post a community blog on the site. It's unfortunate really, because I am one...

 
 
 

What I want out of a video game awards show.

Aw, here it goes, here it goes again.... Another year, another Spike TV Video Game Awards show. I've covered this particular "event" in the past. Perhaps a bit too much than any sane person should, but I have to address this because we se...

 
 
 

Online Passes: The worst of modern gaming.

I hate online passes. I could just stop there and leave it at that, but that would leave you confused and asking why. So I'll tell you. I consider them the worst thing that's happened this generation. Worse than overpriced map packs. Worst ...

 
 
 

PAX mofuggers (shortblog)

So PAX is two days away. But tomorrow I'm hopping on an Amtrak train one day early, just so I can hit the early pre-PAX events and chill with bros. Might as well use this old-ass pic. This will be my third year to PAX, and this time I'm ...

 
 
 

Call of Doody: Fatigued Warfare.

I've noticed here on Destructoid as well as other places that I write about Call of Duty (and its derivatives) a lot. And I mean a lot. Which means I must love Call of Duty, and you're right. Yeah, I'm that person people hate because accord...

 
 
 
 

Something about gaming magazines.

Man, remember when we used to read gaming magazines? Maybe you don't, but I do. A few days ago, while I was on my way to give a friend an old Xbox DVD remote I wasn't using, I had picked up three old gaming magazines for $5 at a Goodwill: ...

 
 
 

Looking back at Medal of Honor

I don't hold high praise for the Medal of Honor franchise. It's a shooter franchise that started out good, but then turned to the ways of its competitor and ended up going from a unique stealth-based FPS to Call of Duty light. The newest ga...

 
 
 

2010 sucked: Mr. Late-to-the-party.

Yep, that's me. Mr. Late-to-the-party. I rarely play games when they come out. 2010 sucked because I can count the number of 2010 games I played on one hand. Hell, I can list them all: Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, ...

 
 
 
 
 

My PAX experience: The Destructoid Edition.

Hey Dtoiders. It's been a while since I've posted blogs on Destructoid. I could've been lazy and copy and pasted what I had posted on my Wordpress blog, but I really didn't want to be shunned by community users for just doing a bunch of c...

 
 
 

A handy-dandy guide to Valve rumors and half-truths.

Before I continue, I must say that I am probably one of the biggest fans of Valve, and probably one of the founding members of the Valve Defense Force. I own virtually every game they have, and had praised Steam back when it was a buggy unu...

 
 
 

The Game in Game Room: My impressions.

Game Room, Microsoft's fancy little way to make classic arcade games and Atari 2600 games relevant again, is now available to 360 and PC users. While I was busy with other games (and hung out with a friend visiting town for a little bit),...

 
 
 
 

How I feel about Spike's video game awards.

So tomorrow, Spike TV airs their seventh annual Video Game Awards. Man, I remember about 3-4 years writing stuff like this where I was condemning the awards because of petty, but logical, reasons. You can see my ranting tirades of previou...

 
 
 

Call of Duty: Modern Reluctancy 2

Alright, so Modern Warfare 2 -- or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 or whatever the hell you like to call it, offensive or not -- is coming out in eight days as I write this. I feel indifferent. But that's because I never really get hyped for...

 
 
 
 

My Halo 3: ODST early experience.

I'm gonna preface this entry with this: I am not a big Halo fan. I loved the first at the time when I played it on PC in 2003, but Halo 2's plot and constant switching between Arbiter and Master Chief was confusing more than entertaining, a...

 
 
 

Replaying Call of Duty

With Infinity Ward's upcoming Modern Warfare 2 (or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 if you wanna argue semantics) coming out on November 10, I decided to go through the six-year history that is the Call of Duty series. From its humble PC begi...

 
 
 

About TonicBHone of us since 2:09 PM on 07.13.2009

I am a 28-year-old guy who plays video games on occasion. I'm a casual collector and own various games from the Atari 2600 to the current generation of game consoles. Nothing really on the "rare" side... unless you count owning about a dozen variations of Wheel of Fortune as "rare."

I write and review things on occasion. I occasionally write reviews of games, otherwise it's me ranting about gaming and the industry at large. Be forewarned: Expect loads of cynicism over gamers and some of the things they say. I hate fanboys and all the things they stand for. I also dislike arguments without facts to back them up. Otherwise I'm a nice guy unless you try to teabag me in a multiplayer game. Then I might not be so nice.

When not sporadically contributing opinions to Destructoid's community blogs, I write about gaming obscurities and oddities at You Found a Secret Area.

I also occasionally post stuff elsewhere. Usually off-topic stuff, but other things as well.
