I'm looking forward to the day when we get to look back at the live action Super Mario Bros movie and be able to refer to it as "the good one."


Happy birthday Ravenclaw! I bring you both a blessing and a curse as a gift. I hope it's a good one and I am sorry to your wallet!


I may have found my new favorite mashup. Created by DJCummerbund.


I miss Modnation Racers...


If you were one of the people who enjoyed Nexomon: Extinction you might be interested to learn that the first game in the series is now on consoles. Only $10, too! I really liked Extinction myself, so I'm pretty stoked.


I'm sure there's folks here that'll get a kick out of this.


Product pitch: It's a trading card game, but all the cards are recipe cards.


Norm Macdonald has passed away. Never going to be another like him. Truly a unique comedian.


Was just about to start New Game + on Tsushima but it does the annoying thing New Game + does in Horizon Zero Dawn where it just skips the beginning of the game. It's like re-reading a book but you skip the first few chapters. Why isn't this optional?


You ever wish the AAA games industry weren't such cowards?


Capcom, one more proposal....Okami 2. That's all.


Capcom, my proposal: A Mega Man game where most of the world is covered in water, and there's these ruins, and Mega Man is stuck on the Moon, but Roll is working on getting him back and also there's this monkey in a metal diaper and...


So one thing about me playing Tormented Souls that I forgot is that I am a scaredy cat and hate feeling tense.


I started playing Tormented Souls and the subtitles and dialogue don't match up so we're off to a great start!


Throw in Wesker, Nemesis, and Dimitrescu from Resident Evil, Frank West from Dead Rising, and maybe Blanka and Charlie from Street Fighter and watch it print money Capcom.


I can't believe I have to work through the Playstation Showcase thing. I'm going to miss it when they announce that totally going to be real Ape Escape Remaster Trilogy that will definitely happen.


Sony revealed the Horizon Forbidden West CE. The two skins it comes with appear to be based on the Thunderjaw and Behemoth machines. Makes me wonder if they're taking a page from Monster Hunter and Aloy will be able to craft armor based on the machines.


The longer I look at this, the funnier it gets.


So I guess someone got tired of waiting for a new Metal Gear Rising and decided to make their own.


I have to say, of all the games to get ported to modern consoles in this day and age this was certainly never something I considered.


The Fitness Boxing games are getting an anime.


A small piece of my inner child has been restored.


Horizon Forbidden West finally has a release date. February 18, 2022.


Neon White being referred to as the new Hades is the Dark Souls of comparisons.


I just want to do a quick shoutout to whomever is still making guides and walkthroughs on GameFAQs. Still my go-to whenever I get stuck in a game. Truly a blessed resource to have in this medium.


My mouth is finally starting to feel (slightly) normal again.


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Former Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, Wes's Unofficial Father, and Self-Appointed Supreme High Priest of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer and aspiring writer. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
