The Engaging Dead

For the past few months I've been working on the various parts of my video analysis for season one of Telltale's The Walking Dead. I always come away from these experiences with a number of lessons learned and things to look out for next ...

 
 
 

My Year as a Games Writer

Two major events in my life occurred since I last wrote on Destructoid. The first was that I had lost my job at the time, leaving me unemployed. The second, in an ironic twist of fate, was that I was invited to be a front page writer for Ga...

 
 
 

Violence: Sky Hook to the Eye

Most good stories involve conflict. It presents an obstacle to the protagonists that is easy to understand, creates motivation for the characters, and provides a perfect physical manifestation of our hero's internal conflict. The easiest ...

 
 
 

Demographics

I'm not really bothered by Microsoft's press conference. Sure, I've tossed my fair share of snark onto Twitter as anyone else has. That's what it's there for, right? That and retweeting everything George Takei says. Thing is, I got exact...

 
 
 

To Write, To Write, L'Chaim

In the past I've mentioned some of my history as a wannabe games writer. Once upon a time I thought I was good at it, that I could easily beat out other games writers, and that I would surely be some big name writer by time I turn 30. Well...

 
 
 

Aliens, Mandarins, Ghosts, Oh My

Man, a lot and yet nothing at all has happened since I last posted here in April. Let me see if I can summarize. Personal life stuff happened that got me a bit down in the dumps. I discovered some amazing all-female Japanese symphonic meta...

 
 
 

The PAXperience

I fought Destructoid, but Destructoid won When I first came home from PAX East 2011, I described it as a taste of what Heaven must be like. If that was a mere taste, then this year was an entire spoon full. The previous two years I tried...

 
 
 

Corporate Downfall

(Sorry for the shoddy quality of this blog. I didn't get a chance to clean it up and just wanted to put something up here. Been feeling a bit of lack-of-contributing-guilt. Hopefully it makes for a decent read anyway). Amongst the many p...

 
 
 

Video: Silent Tutorials (and other ramblings)

So I made another video for your enjoyment. At least, I hope for your enjoyment. It is a thing I would like for you to enjoy. I didn't come around here just to spam and run, though. Life has been a busy thing, and the time to come around...

 
 
 

Sex: That Time I Designed a Hentai Game

Why do you all start out this way? And Jesus Christ, is that girl even in High School yet? Dreams are weird, man. They're supposed to communicate all of these ideas of the subconscious, our deepest desires and fears visualized into some c...

 
 
 

A Great Loss

Today started out so well. The Nintendo Direct video actually had me feeling eager for the Wii U's upcoming year and has secured my interest in purchasing one. Nintendo is making games! And as usual, the games they are making look tempting ...

 
 
 

Introducing RamblePak64 and What I've Learned

It's been two months in the making, but I finally got it. Ladies and gentlemen, my very own web series, RamblePak64. Creating this video has been an interesting experience. I didn't expect it to take as long as it has, and actually has m...

 
 
 

Dead Space 3 Demo - Solo

So Mr. Jim Sterling has already shared his thoughts on the Dead Space 3 demo, but I figured I may as well toss in my own two cents as well. At the very least so that I can organize my own thoughts on it. I got a Roxio Game Capture HD for C...

 
 
 

Expos Everywhere on the East Coast

Famous people! Yay! (GameX 2009) I remember graduating College in 2009 and being excited for VGXPO and GameX that year. What's that? Never heard of 'em? Yeah, not surprising. They were both in the Philadelphia region, which is evidently a...

 
 
 

My Bold Prediction for 2013

I am usually no good at making predictions for the year. Usually the best things to happen are joyful, or the most noteworthy are depressing and sad. Look at what happened in the industry this year as an example. 38 Studios and Big Huge G...

 
 
 

Resolution: Be More Involved

I'm going to start my 2013 participation in the Destructoid community with a confession (that I'm pretty sure I haven't already confested). I came around here in 2009 cross-posting an Examiner.com article. Wait, hey! Stop throwing thing...

 
 
 
 

I, Errand Boy

So I've been playing Darksiders 2 recently because it takes me forever to complete a game I purchased on launch day. It's a really fun game and I enjoy it, though I'm not sure if I like it more or less than the original Darksiders. I thin...

 
 
 

Outside Looking In

First, while this is related to things that are part of the game world, it is technically a more personal blog. As such, if I should add "NVGR" to the title, just let me know and I'll do so. Second, before I get started, I just wanted to ...

 
 
 

I'm Bored of Your Hate

Hey folks, it's been a while since I've been around here. Things have picked up at work, responsibilities increased, and I've also been taking a lot of time at home to work on exercise, expanding my hobbies, changing my diet and working o...

 
 
 

The Player, The Participant, The Commentary

There are a lot of films out there that try and make some sort of commentary about the audience. A recent example is the film Cabin in the Woods, written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard and directed by Drew Goddard. The ultimate statement...

 
 
 

Next-Gen: Apathy in 1080p

I really, really love the Halo 3: ODST live action trailer. It tells such an evocative tale with nothing but emotive actors and sergeants shouting unintelligible gibberish. The final scene is what really brings it all together, though. An...

 
 
 

Childhood, Nostalgia, My Damn Lawn

It seems there are a plethora of posts relating to Final Fantasy going up lately. I am sorry to add another one, though mine is more a journey of introspection. With the release of Theatrhythm it cannot really be helped. It finally reache...

 
 
 

Disconnected

Thirty seconds too many are spent trying to sort out which controller is connected to which port. Is this the third player controller? Nah, this one with the scuff mark over the green X emblem goes to player one. What's the GameCube contr...

 
 

About ccesaranoone of us since 1:39 PM on 07.08.2009

After a little over a year's hiatus I have returned to the Destructoid Blog fold. Despite how thinly-spread my writing efforts have become, I still sometimes feel the need for a canvas in which I can sloppily splash the paint of my thoughts upon in hopes to have something resembling a thing.

So who am I? Right now I'm a writer over at GamersWithJobs, a blogger, a YouTuber and a Podcaster. I specialize in games analysis and criticism, and would like to use the Destructoid blog to share in some of my experiences working on these projects.

Note that I will be linking things I've been working on, but I will do so with the intent of embellishing on thoughts unsaid or detailing some of the work for any interested in also being content providers. Perhaps some of my experiences can help you out along the way.
