A Very Kirby Christmas

Not long ago, on the night of Christmas Eve Kirby was playing in the snow. When out of nowhere an elf ran into the puffball, Tripping and stubbing his toe. “Ow!” cried the elf, distraught and troubled, “I can’t afford to stop now! The fate...

 
 
 

The Simplicity Renaissance

I like complex games. Actually, that's not entirely accurate. I don't really get into to overly complex games, but I am glad that they exist. Gaming as a medium has burst wide open, and developers are finding niches that were previously c...

 
 
 
 

Sex and Violence Across the Sea

When I was 10 years old, I saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail for the first time. I found the humor to be strange and some of the words very foreign. To this day, I struggle to recall the definition of the word "pram" (which, as I unders...

 
 
 

Fake Game Monday: C4 Edition

So, this year's edition of Fake Game ___day isn't really a game as much as a gametype. If I had any proficiency with modding, I'd be tempted to make the game myself, but for now I must settle for crudely drawn MS Paint diagrams. The basic ...

 
 
 

The Truth Will Set You Free

Please, please go buy Just Cause 2 early on. I fear it's going to hit the same sales mark its predecessor did, despite the fact that it has improved in almost every way. The mind-twizzling stuff you can do is more entertainment than should ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The wrong thing: Morbid Curiosity

You’re walking along the crowded city streets of ancient Jerusalem or Liberty City, the specifics aren’t important. You’ve been exploring these same streets for years, in a different context every time, but the faces never change. All of a ...

 
 
 

Left 4 Dead Reborn in 8-Bit Glory

Jonesing for some Left 4 Dead 2, but can't afford it in the holiday rush? Fret not! A dedicated L4D fan named Eric Ruth is recreating the entirety of the first Left 4 Dead game in 8-bit top down shooter form. He has supposedly completed the...

 
 
 

I suck at games: Wii Sports Bowling

I am a gamer. I've traversed the lengths and breadth of countless worlds and saved those worlds dozens of times from nameless, faceless, formless evils. I have become death to anonymous cronies and have brought life to barren plains. I h...

 
 
 
 

Why All Fighting Games Are Terrible

Just kidding, not all of them are terrible. Actually, overall, fighting games are probably one of my favorite genres to jump in out of every once in awhile. I love the thrill of learning a new system and playing with new characters and just...

 
 
 
 

Two Cent Tuesday: Harder. Better! Faster; Stronger?

Author's Note: I've been trying my hand at freelancing articles, but it hasn't seemed to work that well. So I'm going to post my articles on the crucible of Dtoid and have them beat to a bloody pulp. Maybe someday I'll learn to stop sharing...

 
 
 

RetroforceGO! + Baby = AMAZING!

So after meeting Colette and Niero at the fabled Miami NARP, and successfully acquiring Colette's signature on my copy of Earth Defense Force, I decided that Destructoid is the best place ever and that Retroforce GO! is the king of all podc...

 
 
 

Fake Game Friday: Omega Man

Inspired by the recent Zombies edition of Retroforce, I decided to hearken back to the Dtoid features of old and do a Fake Game Friday article about an interesting game that could easily be modded into GTA IV. And yes, this basically plays ...

 
 
 
 
 

Why the LAN is dead.

Last weekend 10 friends and I tried to have an old-fashioned LAN party. I've been having LANs since I was in 8th grade, and many of my best gaming memories have happened with 10-16 Xboxes or PC's connected together. These LANs have kept a l...

 
 
 

Reggie Fils-Ameat...Vivified

Hello fellow Dtoiders! As an avid fan of Potoid and all things Jim Sterling, I decided to have a go at molding Reggie Fils-Amie's likeness out of ground beef. As it turns out, Reggie's effigy makes a wonderful meatloaf, and adding the ketc...

 
 
 

Mirror's Edge Impressions

Since creating this post is detracting from my time with Mirror's Edge, I want to say this for anyone who is on the fence about Mirror's Edge: The first time you play Mirror's Edge, you will find a similar joy to the first time you played...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The man with no PS2

Hello everyone, My internet name is goodgamer77, and I have a problem. You see, I've been playing video games since my parents were concerned that the baby fat permeating my carcass had not began to wane yet. I am an enthusiast of the hobb...

 
 
 

About goodgamer77one of us since 12:49 PM on 07.27.2007

I've had the same username since AOL 1.0 (though I ditched AOL a long time ago).

I like to play games that are fun and I own few of those (because I'm a poor father/husband guy).

I like penguins, and own a blue one (stuffed, not live). (To clarify stuffed like a doll, not a taxidermy job).

And I like parentheses. (See, told you).
