Are you afraid of the dark?

Two years ago I decided to read 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis De Sade. I only made it halfway through the book before I decided not to finish it - the book was simply too disturbing to read. I thought I can handle the dark tale of four Fren...

 
 
 

Criticizing the critics

Reviewing the reviewer and reviewing the score is a rather controversial topic. People seem to never be satisfied with a score a game they admire received; itís either too high or too low. The comments posted on any review from any site in...

 
 
 

I think I may have a problem

Everyone loves a familiar face, no? Someone you can relate and know inside and out. Most people have fear of the new and undiscovered, but always champion familiarity. As a literary major, my classes demand me to read and analyze several bo...

 
 
 

Game + Book =

Spoilers for Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and Castle in the Mist. Their cries would not reach that ancient castle perched upon the cliff at the end of the world, far to the west where the sun sank after its daily journey. The only thing th...

 
 
 

I think we're going to be friends

My school isnít bad. Nor is it great. It fits right in the middle of mediocrity. The school isnít a prime example of excellence or a defective environment of undesirables. Itís just there. Itís not ugly or pretty. Itís not clean or dirty. T...

 
 
 

Gamers are going crazy

You know whats lame? This review is lame. I found the ign review to be much more helpful and most reviews by ign are horrible. All u do is bash about how bad the game is. It clearly didn't suit your tastes for a srpg but that doesn't mean t...

 
 
 

Demonís Souls: An Allegory for Life

What is this place? The gamer is told itís where the dead communicates. Itís dark and damp. A slow and moody soundtrack plays and gives the gamer a certain type of calmness and reassurance that youíre safe in this world. This castle is bi...

 
 
 

Downloadables: The petal of life

I visit her every now and then. She holds my hand with a strong grip. We run through the grass and laugh. We sometimes sit by a tree and talk. I lay my head on her lap and start to tell her stories of my life. I tell her my problems - she d...

 
 
 

Why I like linear games

Iíve been without a current generation home console for almost a year now. During this year Iíve become a lover of handheld gaming. I finally bought myself an Xbox 360 four days ago, and Iím starting to regret my decision. Not because of t...

 
 
 

Your game is kiddy!

The dreaded word ďkiddyĒ is often used as an insult to certain type of games; mostly games made by Nintendo. I question the people who have a need to express their distaste for anything ďkiddy.Ē Should we insult these ďkiddyĒ games? Why don...

 
 
 

Do games have to be fun?

Do games have to be fun? Well, in my opinion they do. But there are some individuals that disagree with this opinion. Sometime itís best to agree to disagree, but I still fail to see how an individual can enjoy gaming without it being fun....

 
 
 

How My Brother Ruined My Gaming Experience

As most of you know by now, I recently got my hands on a copy of Persona 4. I went into the game knowing nothing of the series, and to my surprise, I ended up enjoy it, until my brother came to visit me. My brother, once a gamer, and now...

 
 
 

A Game That Mirrors Destructoid

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, I recently bought Shadow of The Colossus (SoTC). At the time I was up to the third Colossi, and I greatly enjoy the game. Now, Iím almost done with the game, and I have mix feelings about it. Mixed be...

 
 
 

Turning to Games for Comfort

Is there a game you go to in a time of need? A game that comforts you; a game that acts like the bosoms of your mother; a game that whispers: ďitís okay, everything will be fine.Ē Video games are all about escapism; and that escapism, depen...

 
 
 

P2 Press Start: She Was Only Sixteen

At that time I was only sixteen years old. My life then was already gloomy. I did not associate with anyone; I even avoided speaking, and kept to myself most of the time. I tried not to look at anyone in school and always considered myself ...

 
 
 

Will You Survive The Hipster Apocalypse?

Remember the days when you and a couple of friends knew about a certain game or band? Remember how you felt? It was like you knew a secret no one else knew; and if that secret was ever let out to the public then the value of the secret woul...

 
 
 

Mommy, youíre 62! Put The Controller Down!

There seems to be a line that separates video games and anyone older than 50. If the Wii has taught us anything it's that games with simple controls might be the gateway to get older players. Simplicity is something everyone likes, but ever...

 
 
 

Saying Goodbye to a Good Friend

Growing up In New York my family didnít have much money. I didnít have any games, or clothes. In fact, I would have to borrow my older brotherís clothes if I wanted to mix my style up at school. Unfortunately, he was five years older than ...

 
 
 

Aaamaazing: How I Learn To Be a Better Man

Though lovers be lost love shall not. - Dylan Thomas Braid is a game I struggled to finish - Iím simply bad at puzzle games of any kind, but the aspect of the game that truly affected me was the story. Iím not going to rant on the ambig...

 
 
 

When Bored In Class; Why Not Doodle

Every single class this semester seems to be boring Ė even my Beatles class, but when that happens, I doodle. I always love when friends show me their doodle (sounds sexual). My doodles seems to be of mix results, sometimes theyíre good, ot...

 
 
 
 

Can We All Stop being CODíist

Iím going to make this short and to the point. What is up with all the Call of Duty (CoD) hate? Really, itís starting to become a clichť around the gaming world. Now, I must admit, I am not a First Person Shooter (FPS) fan, but CoD games ar...

 
 
 
 
 

Limbo: If You Don't Like Me, Then Go Play Halo.

I finally got around playing the great artistic indie title called, Limbo. The game Jim Sterling gave a 10 to. A game by Destructoidís own definition is a ďFlawless VictoryĒ; a game people point the finger at to prove that video games are ...

 
 
 

ďI Pirate Games Just To Try Them OutĒ

Yes, Iím going to add to the pile of pirating blog post, but I hope I will add some substance to the discussion. Iím going to make this short and to the point. Pirating any game requires time and dedication. Some games can take up to 24 ho...

 
 
 

Hello, I'm New Here.

I've been visiting the community blogs for awhile now and thought it would be fun to start one. I really don't know what to write for my debut, so I thought a little introduction of myself is needed before I can attempt to write anything of...

A Small Thank You

I started a blog at this very site to let some of my feelings out. In some way Destructoid was therapy for me. I write about everything from my mother, past relationships, financial situations, friends, hipsters, school, etc. This is done not for sympathy, but as a way to expresses myself. My financial situation is a mess and I have no idea how Iím going to make a living, but writing and reading some of the response from great users have bought a wealth of positiveness to my life; It really doesnít have to be anything big, but a simple comment of appreciation is enough to fill my heart with joy. Itís strange writing this, but joining this community has been the best thing I've ever done, well, second best thing; getting laid is pretty cool. What Iím trying to say here is thank you. Thank you for this awesome community. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for being awesome.

A big thanks goes to falsenipple for the header!
