MurderBoss, my LD25 entry.

Play the game here! Last weekend I teamed up with my friends Manic Maverick and Pankin to create a game in 72 hours for the 25th Ludum Dare game jam. I've never entered before, and finishing the game was a pretty big achievement. It is ...

 
 
 
 

Custom videogame plush.

Lately I've been working really hard on filling my new Etsy store with cute amigurumi! One of the first patterns that I made after I taught myself to make these was Kirby, so I wanted to put a really nice Kirby in my store. Soon after th...

 
 
 
 

The Nerd Cave.

I've seen some pretty cool game rooms put up on Dtoid in the past, and now I think it's time I made my contribution. Let's start at my desk and go clockwise around my room. Here's my computer desk, where I spend a great deal of time. G...

 
 
 

Why Dtoid Secret Santa is awesome.

I just got back to my college apartment after a lengthy winter break and what do I find? My Dtoit secret santa present from Germany! AWESOME! Enclosed in the box was this letter. It's a bit hard to read so I'll sum it up: 1. Greetings ...

 
 
 
 

Shopping for a 360 arcade stick, need your input.

I like my 360. I'm a big retro gamer, and a while ago I bought a special controller to facilitate the playing of classic games as well as the then-newly released Street Fighter IV. I got the MadCatz SFIV fighter pad and for the most part...

 
 
 
 

The PSP, two weeks later.

Just a little while ago, I purchased a PSP 3000. Now I'm not sure if this was wise, as I already own and LOVE a DSlite, and own more DS games on it than I've had time to play (The World Ends With You and Knights in the Nightmare are lookin...

 
 
 

My collection of retro game collections.

I wonder if it's a problem that almost all of the games that I've been buying recently are just retro collections. Just kidding, I could buy nothing but these and be totally happy. There are actually still several others that I'm still ...

 
 
 

Crafts for great justice: amigurumi.

It was a few weeks ago that I decided that I wanted to learn to make amigurumi. To do this, I first needed to familiarize myself with the manly art of crochet. It turned out to be a difficult craft to learn on my own (I had only books and...

 
 
 

So I still don't like Bioshock.

In my last post I seemed to have stepped on a few toes by calling Bioshock overrated. I specifically called it one of the most overrated games ever and I stand by this (placing it alongside Halo and Gears of War). Actually, I'm willing to...

 
 
 
 
 
 

A Musical Dilemma.

A short while ago, I was alerted to the fact that DragonForce was coming to my hometown of Asheville, NC (the land where little of interest happens). This is big news, as they're basically the band that got me into the brand of insane powe...

 
 
 

My first day on XBLA was rough.

As I endured three consecutive tests on Wednesday (college sucks like that) I decided to get myself as a present a 1 month XBLA gold card as well as a 1600 point card and relax for most of Thursday. My games list had a lot of demos for whi...

 
 
 

My epic ActRaiser nerdrage (in three parts).

Part 1. Chad Concelmo, on RetroforceGo (which I love so much) you called me out on my favorite game ever. You have said on several occasions that the classic 16-bit action/god-sim ActRaiser has 'bad bosses." Bad bosses? For years I had...

 
 

About Tyler Jonesone of us since 9:02 PM on 10.20.2008

I received an SNES console for Christmas when I was three years old, and my life was changed forever. Looking back on it, I realize this was only one month after the console released. My parents rock.

I've been an avid gamer ever since then, don't have the good fortune of living near very many people who like games in the same way I do. Please friend me on this site, XBLA, or PSN if you want to PLAY VIDEOGAMES or TALK about VIDEOGAMES some time.
