Tony's top 32 games of all time!

Is it June 4th again already? Where does the time go? Yes, your close, personal pal Tony has just turned 32! In celebration of this anniversary of admittedly no particular significance, I want to try my hand at something that I've nev...

 
 
 

I CALLED IT! I CALLED IT!

Sonic Mania? An official Sonic game made by Christian "Taxman" Whitehead and Simon "Stealth" Thomley, two champions of the Sonic fan game scene who went on to do official ports of Sonic 1, 2, and CD that outclassed any of Sega's own p...

 
 
 

Tony is the hero Japan needs! Time for an AMA!

[UPDATE: Bumping this up because I'm jonesin' for more of those sweet queries!] Back in the habit! As I briefly touched upon in my previous Mario Maker post (by the way, you should totally play my levels, wink wink), I'm currently liv...

 
 
 
 
 
 

My Favorite Game: Mega Man 2

I honestly didn't plan on responding to this month's Community Assignment until just a couple of days ago. You're all more than aware of my love for the Mega Man series, so my harping yet again about robots and jumping through boss doo...

 
 
 

Tony Ponce was able to build this AMA in a cave

The other day, the lovely Brittany Vincent posted an AMA so that the readers could get to know their favorite new editor a little better. I love it when the "big dawgs" open themselves up to the community like that. I love it when...

 
 
 

ADDENDUM: Linkle IS female Link after all!

Hey, everyone! As you might have noticed, I've decided to start doing musings again in my spare time. It's been too long since I've written anything that wasn't weighed down by deadlines or the need to be run past a group of copy editors....

 
 
 
 

Ooooooooooh! Regular Shoooooooooow!

Yesterday, I tweeted this picture. What is this a picture of? The new Regular Show DVD, of course! But wait a minute, you reply. There is no Regular Show DVD in stores! How did you get hold of this? Simple: Cartoon Network GAVE it to me....

 
 
 
 

Who wants to go to Nerdapalooza in Orlando with me?

Hey there, all you Chilly Willies! It's been a while since I've popped up on the community blogs. It's been way too long, I know! Anyway, I've got a message for all my Florida peeps. From July 15 through 17 (two weeks from now), Nerdapal...

 
 
 

C Blog style and formatting tips

My good buddy Andrew Kauz recently became the site's new C Blog Boss, a role that tasks him with keeping an eye out for exceptional posts and offering useful tips and guidance to those in need. Of course, no one would expect just one man ...

 
 
 

As days go by, it's the bigger love of the family

This blog is about love, and not just any kind of love! The sitcom family kind! I've got mad, mad love for Qalamari and Funktastic, two cool cats who missed my presence at PAX so dearly that they sent me some mementos for me to treasure f...

 
 
 

Pixel Art: Bit Transmutation

If you've listened to the latest Bit Transmission, you should be aware of a contest going down on the forums. Conrad has released the official BT sprite pack and is giving everyone until midnight this Friday to make an original piece usin...

 
 
 

My Mega Mans, let me show you them

This post is dedicated to Funktastic. Here's to you, Mr. Obsessive Game Collector Guy. I am THE Mega Man nut of Destructoid. Of course, anybody can make such a bold claim, but how well can they back it up? I think a show of credentials ...

 
 
 

Roger Ebert is not far off the mark

It's been quite a while since renowned film critic Roger Ebert last shared his thoughts on video games. His opinion that games are not and cannot be art doesn't sit well with gamers, many who have taken it upon themselves to properly "edu...

 
 
 

The Last Story... is that a TIGER!?!?!?

So I saw this new piece of concept art for Mistwalker's The Last Story. That dude's "sword" is wild. Has everyone forgotten what a real weapon looks like? The chick is not bad. No hot pants or exposed clevage for a change. And... wait... ...

 
 
 

The PAX Misadventures of Beyamor and Qalamari

Tony: Beyamor! Hey, Qalamari! Come with me! We'll go and see a place called PAX East! Real-World Responsibilities: Who needs PAX East? You have to pay the rent! Tony: But their ain't no streams of vidja games to play to hearts' content!...

 
 
 

Off-Brand Games: DuLuDuBi Star

Over the past few months, word has spread of a certain Chinese PC game that tore every page out of the Nintendo handbook and replaced them with abrasive dollar-store toilet paper. DuLuDuBi Star is a clone of 2007's Super Mario Galaxy and ...

 
 
 

'Round and 'round we go!

The more things change, the more things stay the same: What is this garbage!? This is just lazy, Capcom! You give us a brand-new classic Mega Man but with old and shitty retro graphics! How cheap can you be? You aren't even trying! Th...

 
 
 

Off-Brand Games: Crusader of Centy

After a short hiatus, I'm back with the next "wonderful" installment of Off-Brand Games! When I began this series, I had a huge list of candidates for crucifixion. I've been zipping through the shorter games, hoping to pump out articles a...

 
 
 

Let's do something about all this port begging

A couple of years ago, somebody must have tripped over the lever that operates the floodgates because the requests for ports have been pouring in, pouring in, pouring in. Port begging, of course, is the practice of suggesting, subtly or o...

 
 
 

Fatal Frame IV translation is complete!

Last June, I brought to your attention the fan-made Fatal Frame IV translation project. The aim of the project was to do the job that Nintendo and Tecmo failed to perform by localizing the game into English. It was supposed to be complete...

 
 
 
 

2009: Glory to handheld gaming

This generation has seen the rise of the portable gaming in a grand way. Games so robust, so imaginative, so endearing that they rival the greatest of their home console brethren. The landscape is so rich that you can devote yourself to h...

 
 
 

Off-Brand Games: Run Saber

Did anyone else watch Ninja Assassin? Duuuude! Ninja creeping in and out of the shadows, getting the drop on unsuspecting punks and ruining their holidays with a katana clean through the jaw line. Brutality at its finest! Not gonna lie -...

 
 
 
 

I found some 'Off-Brand' Bomberman toys

I suppose this is my thing now. Can't say I don't enjoy it! I was at the mall just over an hour ago, doing some Christmas shopping and what-not. My four-year-old cousin was in tow and, by God, was he a bear. I took him to the little play...
