Level-Headed: Waluigi's Island

Ah, Mario Party. We all know the series, and, for the most part, we detest it. In the same vein as Madden games, a Mario Party generally comes out every year or so, with no new innovation (or, if there is any, its god-awful) and the same...


Mini-Games: The Force Unleashed

Most of you, I assume, have played (or attempted to play) The Force Unleashed, based solely on the fact that this was the game that was supposed to save the Star Wars series: you get to use awesome force powers, play as Darth Vader’s ap...


Faceplam Of The Week: Gamer Grub

Originally seen on Geekoligie. So, I'm not sure if any of you have hard about this, but there's a new food/beverage/snack/meal replacement item being put on the market. Gamer Grub is the new treat designed to keep gamers fueled through e...


Pendelton Reviews Nerdcore Rising: The Movie

So, for those that don’t know, I’m a college student. I currently go to the kinda-liberal-arts college Bowling Green State University (I say kinda because, while it is liberal, it’s located in a hick farming town). Because of this, ...


Level-Headed: Hyrule Castle

Hyrule Castle is a hugely important monument in gaming. It's the birthplace of some of the greatest moments in gaming, home of the lovely Princess Zelda, and the office of the monarchy of the ENTIRE land of Hyrule, setting of one of the g...


Proud Baby-Daddy of my FIRST 360!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, as some of you may know, I'm not hooked into this generation of consoles. Sure, I've played your Bioshocks, your Portals, what have you. But, I've never owned a 360, a PS3, none of it. I've always found fun in sitting ...


Level-Headed: Fort Frolic

In my opinion, there has never been a first-person shooter quite like Bioshock. The story, the levels, the characters, the plot twists. All of it is pure genius at work. For this episode of Level Headed, I decided to take a look at what I...


Mini-Games: Phase

For those living under a rock, or willfully oblivious to all things music-game-related, Rock Band 2 was released this week. The sequel to the best and biggest musical video game is now available to the masses. But, some people (like littl...


Level-Headed: Airport 1001 (Storm Eagle)

Words can't express my love for this fucking bird. I’m just gonna go ahead and say this: I believe that Storm Eagle’s level, from Mega Man X, is the greatest level in any action/shooter video game. It’s one of the best levels from w...


Mr. Destructoid Says, "Relax!" (NVGR)

I don't know about you folks, but with yesterday's overlapping shit storm caused by multiple Jim Sterling reviews, the introduction of this month's musing, and the news of Miss .tiff leaving us, there hasn't been much to be happy about thes...


Masamune: My Creation

Finally, after all this time, my awesome craft piece is done!!! Made entirely out of fused Perler beads (no glue on this), it's a representation of Frog's most powerful sword, the Masamune, and it's keepers, Masa and Mune. The piece ...


Hot Piece of Flash: Bowja The Ninja 2

Ninjas? Bows? Hot Asian girls and sportscars? Sign me up!!! In this week's edition fo Hot Piece of Flash, I wanted to profile a little game I stumbled upon a while back, being bored out of my mind. And, thankfully, at the time, this is th...


Perler Beads = AWESOME

So, I'm not a crafts kinda guy. I'm the person who drew circular cubes and awkward triangles in art, whose chalk drawings couldn't rivaled those of retarded chimpanzees, and who couldn't sculpt to save my life. I always thought this was we...


Level Headed: Crescent Isle (Skies of Arcadia)

The cast of SoA, with Crescent Isle in the background. Skies of Arcaida. Honestly, if you've never played this game, either go check eBay for a Dreamcast (or Gamecube) copy, or not-download it somewhere, right now. Seriously. Like, now. ...



...ok, not really (maybe), but it's a really cool pic someone (maybe) shooped for the internets: Now, as many of you probably know, I've already outlined who I think the next Batman villains might be. And he certainly isn't in that list....


Gaming At 88 m.p.h.: Chex Quest

The Chex Warrior: Way more badass than "Darth Vader". If you were to ever ask me, before 1997, if a meaningful, fun experience could come from the lining of a cereal box, I would look at you like a crazy person. Aside from crappy 3-D gl...


Mini-Games: Song Summoner

For this week's Mini-Game, I decided to change things up a bit. The game I am reviewing was purchased (via iTunes download) a mere 20 minutes after I read about it on Penny Arcade. That game is Song Summoner, the first game I've wanted to...


Instant Replay: Chrono Trigger

As soon as I read the topic for this month's musing, I knew I had to talk about the one game I've played through entirely more than any other game; Chrono Trigger. First before I get started, I'd like to thank the wonderful gents at Retr...


A cast of thousands...Huggy Bear

Yeah, yeah, I know what you're saying: who in God's name is Huggy Bear? Huggy Bear is the embodiment of every dream that you had as a kid. He's the unspeakable evil that you believed you were fighting with your toys. He is imagination incar...


I've Seen The Dark Night, but What's Next?

Well, I just got back from what I can say was, without a doubt, one of my favorite movie experiences of the year: seeing The Dark Knight at my local theater for only $2. This was my second time seeing this movie, because I was stunned at ...


RTS Movie Review: Gamebox 1.0

Surprisingly, this box art has almost nothing to do with the movie. Hey, who here hasn't seen The Dark Night yet? If you haven't, seriously, stop reading this and go see it. I can say, without a doubt, it was one of the best movies I've e...


Gaming at 88 M.P.H: Dynamite Cop!

Not as scary as ex-hippies-turned-Carribean pirates, but close. I just killed a guy by grabbing a pepper shaker, spraying him with pepper to subdue him, then throwing the empty shaker at his head, knocking him down, then grabbing him by h...


Mini-Games: Devil May Cry 3D

My eyes! MY EYES!!!! Devil May Cry has proven to be one of the more interesting series in video game history. After a successful opening chapter, the series turned into pure ass with DMC2, but regained its composure with DMC3. So, Capc...


RTS Movie Review: Stay Alive

Please, God, no more!!! Well, I've done it. I've officially become so freaking bored that I watched the abomination of God known as "Stay Alive". For those lucky individuals not in the know, Stay Alive is a movie about a video game that k...


The Start of The Affair: Final Fantasy 7

Hearing about this month's Monthly Musings, I knew I had to get in on the action and tell people about the gaming decision that changed my life. That decision came the day I bought Final Fantasy 7. Screw Joe Namath, I wanted to be like hi...


Pendelton's Day Out

When I was a kid, there was no better thrill in the world than going to Toys R Us. It was childhood Mecca; the place where dreams were made of plastic and rubber. Toys from every corner of Saturday morning cartoons lined the shelves, and, b...


Mini-Games: God of War

Tiny Kratos: Twice the ass-kicking, half the calories. When gamers first heard about Kratos, the ash-stained, blood-letting, god-killing warrior from the God of War series, going to a mobile console (the PSP), some were a bit worried...


A Review of...something

If you're a classic game lover, one of the best things in the world is a good garage sale. What's even better is a rich-neighborhood-wide garage sale WEEKEND, much like one my suburban neighborhood had last weekend. As I perused through sta...

My name is Pendelton (well, not really, but it sounds cool).
At one point in my life I spent a hell of a lot of time here. I came back for no real reason. Let's see if I can entertain like I used to.
Also, I've got a Destructoid tattoo. Ask me and I'll show you.
