As many of you may well be aware, July was the last month for Boxman214 as a member of our merry Band of Bloggers. He had a good run and provided us with several fun prompts to blog about. And his last prompt, Heroes, not only inspire...

Welcome back to my third CYOA style blog. Like the previous ones I'll leave a few ways the story could continue at the end of the chapter and you the reader can vote in the comments which of the choices you like the most. New chapters...

 
 
 

BoB - Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

  I told myself this prompt would be a piece of cake. Watch a movie, write a blog, easy peasy, right? Hell, it’s so easy there’s no rush. I can watch Tomb Raider any time, right? Could maybe even knock out all three i...

Band of Bloggers - April 2019

  This month’s theme may make you uncomfortable. Not in like a gross way or anything. Just sort of slightly uncomfortable. Like stepping into a small bit of water and now your sock is slightly damp kind of uncomfortable. Lik...

 
 
 
 
 

BoB - My Naughtiest Gaming Moments

Video games can make you feel a spectrum of emotions. Pride, joy, sadness, you get the idea. One of the most interesting emotions a game can make you feel though is guilt. Games are not real. The people in them are just lines of code ...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers - December 2018

Video games often make us ponder important questions. Is it really okay to go into villagers’ houses and raid their chests? Why is the kingdom expecting one person to save the world when they have an entire army that does nothin...

Halloween CYOA - Chapter 3

This is a Choose your Own Adventure type story. I'm writing it chapter by chapter, and I'm doing it all in a couple of days. As such, these are going to be very rough and not super well written, so please keep that in mind. Also I don'...

Band of Bloggers - September 2018 Edition

I’d like to start this Band of Bloggers prompt with a story.  The very first game I ever beat, completely on my own, was Pokémon (Red Version). I was obsessed with Pokémon as a kid. So much so that I would even...

 
 
 

Book of the Month - The Dark Portal

My arm is back to 100(ish) percent and so THE BOOK OF THE MONTH IS BACK! Yay? This month’s book is this first entry in a trilogy I read a long time ago when I was still in middle school. It’s not a terribly long read, and ...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers - Mega Man Legends 2

I remember when I first beat Mega Man Legends. It had taken some time, and I was quite proud of myself. And I remember the small teaser of “Game Over?” at the end that got me excited. I became very happy at the prospect of...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Venetica "Review"

For this month’s Band of Bloggers prompt, I decided to play Venetica, a game where you play as the daughter of Death, Scarlett on a quest to save the world from a group of necromancers after global domination.  My time with...

 
 
 

Book of the Month - The Warrior Heir

The intro to these blogs is seriously the hardest part of them. Everything else is easy-peasy, but this is absolutely the part I struggle with. Which is why these will probably always be me bitching about them. I apologize in advance....

 
 
 

Book of the Month - Mort

This is where the intro should go, but I’m too lazy to come up with one. So fuck it. New month, new book. I’m sure we all get the drill by now. So for this month I have chosen a book I picked up because the title is the sa...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers - Blue Dragon Impressions

Blue Dragon. An Xbox 360 exclusive JRPG featuring the talents of Hironobu Sakaguchi, Nobuo Uematsu, and Akira Toriyama. It’s one of those games that genuinely convinced me that I would have to get a 360. I still wouldn’t u...

 
 
 
 
 

My Personal Experience with Crowdfunding

The public opinion on crowdfunding is divisive, at best. Some people are completely against it and oppose it wholesale. I don’t agree with these people, but I can understand where they are coming from. There are several high profile ...

 
 
 

Book of the Month - Not Quite the Classics

Bumping this mid-month to make it easier to find. Time for yet another installment of Destructoid’s Unofficial Book of the Month. It’s been quite the experience for me thus far and I hope for all of you who have supported ...

 
 

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.
