Review: Hand of Fate 2

I’ve been pondering for a while how someone first came up with the idea of mixing a tabletop RPG with a deck building card game, with an action brawler. At first glance it seems like a pretty wild mix of game types. How do you ma...

 
 
 

Finding Your Place In The Universe (Part 2)

Two weeks ago (spent one week as a force ghost so had to repost this as it died with me a week ago) I talked a bit about those magical places in games where we tend to linger. Places that offer comfort and peace of mind. I wonder,...

 
 
 

Finding Your Place In The World (Part 1)

I have always been very comfortable in only my own company. I have always liked the night. There is something peaceful about the dark and quiet, especially so when enjoying a good game. I guess that, to some people, this sounds li...

 
 
 

Fruit Fighter V

I've been playing way too much Street Fighter V (95 hours to date) and I love it. Can't help but think some of the characters are a bit off when it comes to design though. Ken's hair has been bothering me for the longest time so I ...

 
 
 

Did developers really change?

So, I saw this video comparing Cammy's intro in SFV from pre-release to final product. Camera angle is slightly shifted to no longer show her crotch and people go completely mental, crying censorship and swearing never to buy Capcom ag...

 
 
 

Finally Understanding How Great Mass Effect Is

Recently I've started playing through games with my girlfriend. Games that are enjoyable for her to watch as well as for me to play. It started out with Deadly Premoniton and we had so much fun we decided to do some more games. After t...

 
 
 

The Cruel Irony of Gaming: Sickness

After reading Pixie's latest I had a thought about the cruel irony of gaming. So we all have jobs or education or something that takes up a lot of our time. Well, even those who don't probably don't spend all day, everyday, gaming anyway(!)...

 
 
 

Demoed - Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

I sat down last night with a good scotch and some hands-on time with the Revengeance demo to see what I thought. I'll not only talk about what I thought about the game itself, but also about what I thought of the demo. Often I find myself r...

 
 
 

I need a gaming doctor...

Help! I need someone to diagnose me and I don't think a normal doctor will do. I need someone a bit mentally disturbed and possibly anonymously addicted to licking the ends of batteries for better or worse. Think we can work with that? 20...

 
 
 

Is mobile gaming really the future?

I have no doubt in my mind that Android and iOS is a legitimate gaming platform that has to be counted at the end of the day. I even find myself playing mobile games occasionally, it's not like I find them less worthy, but the talk seems ...

 
 

About lokheone of us since 11:59 AM on 01.18.2010

Hail from Stockholm, Sweden. I've been gaming for as long as I can remember, on the Game Boy initially. My first game was called Jelly Boy, it was awesome (it was probably not awesome).

Raised on Blizzard and Nintendo games, later GoldenEye, Perfect Dark and Halo. Zelda games and the Metal Gear Solid series holds a special place in my heart.

Used to play a load of shareware games that came with random magazines when I was a kid. On my mighty powerful PC with all of 66Mhz and 580MB HDD space. Mind blown, I know!

Gems such as Tubular Worlds, Elf Bowling and Micro Man I remember fondly. I must have also sunk hundreds of hours into the Duke Nuke'em 3D Demo.

My late teen years were utterly consumed by World of Warcraft, probably the best time of my gaming life. I know many people don't feel the same way but the things I've done and people I've met I treasure dearly.

These days I praise the sun and pray at the altar of Miyazaki Hidetaka. A few years ago I would've said that Ocarina of Time was my favourite game ever made. Today, Dark Souls holds that spot but I think it is just the grown up version of Zelda really.

When I'm not gaming I'm in the dojo, honing my skills. Martial arts have always been important to me and I could not go without the balance it brings to my life.

I've been coming to Destructoid since I moved away from home in 2009 and never thought of leaving. This place is home <3
