Waifu Wars: Lulu

Warning: Final Fantasy X and X-2 spoilers abound. When I was younger, I used to fantasize all the time about fictional women from video games and movies. Like most horned up teenagers in my day, I remember playing Dead or Alive Xtreme ...

Why Her Story works and Gone Home doesn't.

I've voiced my rather harsh opinion about Gone Home a number of times around here. I even went as far as to say it was my most hated game of 2013. I haven't touched the game since I played it back then and my opinion hasn't changed a whole ...

 
 
 

More Kick Ass Art: FanimeCon Part 1

Fanimecon was last weekend and I am still exhausted from it. I have never done a full weekend at a convention before and this took a bit of a toll on me. Four days is a bit much for me to be on my feet, but in the end it was all worth ...

Merry X-mas from Ooktar!

Just figured I'd add in my Christmas Wishes to the wonderful people here. I've only been here a short while, but in that short time I've come to love the community here and am very fortunate to find a place as welcoming as Destructoid. Than...

 
 
 

You'd best Holster that weapon.

So I wanted to do a blog about choices in video games and games where your decisions in the main game can affect the gameplay, game world, ending, etc. But I don't feel like I could tackle it in one blog, so instead I figured I'd start sm...

 
 
 

My Gaming Story: I caught My Mom with the Plumber

I was young when it happened to me, maybe 4 or 5, I can't remember exactly when. Some of the images are fuzzy now, but there are still things that time will never erase. I've learned to live with the memories, but I've yet to forgive thos...

 
 

About ooktarone of us since 12:17 PM on 04.18.2013

Somewhere in the backwoods of California, in a cabin with 4 cats (Rip Fuzzy Butt) and little contact with the outside world. Locked away with nothing but a PC, a guitar, and an near limitless supply of spam. A small yet courageous man works day and night in order to make sense of humanity's greatest secrets. Using his abilities as a skilled video games player, amateur musician, and wannabe film connoisseur, he manages to keep himself busy with his work of saving the world through his studies of Heavy Metal, Silly Pop Culture, and Raccoons.
