BIRTHDAY WEEKEND: COMMENCE

This Sunday I turn 24, or as I like to call it, the Jack Bauer age. This year I will make sure to headbutt as many people as possible. If you want to get me a present, cocaine and hookers will do. But I'm not waiting for Sunday to cele...

 
 
 

Real life video games (NVGR-ish)

I recently got a chance to play paintball for the first time in my life. My friend organized a group of about 20 people, so we didnít have to play with any random people, which was nice. The place we played was called Liberty Paintball in ...

 
 
 
 

Where is my modern Rambo game?

A couple weeks ago I finally saw all 4 Rambo movies. I know Iím late to the party, but I certainly loved the over-the-top pure shots of testosterone that these movies were. Manlier than you will ever be. While watching these movies, I wo...

 
 
 

A vote for sickNasty is a vote for Freedom

My fellow Dtoiders, I would like to humbly ask for the privilege of your vote in the Mirrorís Edge/Qosmio laptop contest. You guys have the power to help me replace my decrepit 6 year old desktop. Therefore, Iíd like to present the top 6...

 
 
 

Broaden your horizons, Shakazulu!

A couple weeks ago, Steam had World of Goo on sale for five bucks. At that value, there were no more excuses for me not to get the game. Weíve all heard how awesome the game is, and I agree with everything thatís been said. The art, music,...

 
 
 

Fred Durst on Xbox Live

I have a friend who keeps me up to date on all things Limp Bizkit, for some reason (They are finally making a new album if you care). Apparently Freddy "I hope you know I pack a chain saw" Durst recently posted his Gamertag on Twitter. Th...

 
 
 

[email protected]$k you, Capcom. (Updated)

I originally posted this over the weekend, where it was pushed off the main page by meme posts. I've also added to the original to address the recent comments by Capcom and news of Godfather II's multiplayer. Capcom, youíre pissing me off...

 
 
 

Nothing's gonna stop Dtoid now

Here is yet another cblog dedicated to this awesome day. I just want to extend my thanks and happy birthday wishes to Neiro and everyone else who makes this place what it is. Also, happy birthday Samit! I'm relatively new to this whole th...

 
 
 

[email protected]$k you, Capcom.

Capcom, youíre pissing me off. I donít like the crap youíre pulling with Resident Evil 5. No, Iím not talking about the controls this time. Iím talking about this versus mode bullshit youíre trying to pull. For years games have had multip...

 
 
 

sickNasty previews games you've never heard of

Last week my friend sent me this from freenyc.net: Pizza, beer, and games, for free. It doesnít take much more to interest me. So after work I headed over. And while there wasnít as much pizza and beer as I hoped, I got a chance to be a g...

 
 
 

Chronicles of Riddick quick demo impressions

I loved the first Chronicles of Riddick game. The story was interesting and the gameplay was fresh and fun throughout. It also showed me that Vin Deisel is better at playing a role in a video game, rather than acting in a movie. The melee ...

 
 
 

New Terminator Salvation trailer

This just hit Yahoo movies. Easily the best trailer so far. Perfect music choice too, "The Day the Whole World Went Away" by NIN. It definitely adds to the bleak atmosphere. And Bale has already made me forget the little pansy Nick Sta...

 
 
 

Playing with yourself: Too much of a good thing?

Growing up, my household didnít own many games. My parents would rather we do pretty much anything than play games. This led to my brothers and I playing the odd rented Genesis game along with shareware on the old 386. Therefore, the few ga...

 
 
 

Photoshoppe

I'm certainly no Photoshop Hero. But hey everybody, check out my sweet new banner. Typically people associate nostalgia and retro gaming with Mario, Zelda, etc. The characters on my banner, however, are from games that shaped my gaming you...

 
 
 

Morning irony (NVGR)

So I'm getting ready for work, listening to Pandora as usual, when some interesting songs play back to back... Yes I know I listen to terrible music, that's not the point here. Here are some choice words from the Rihanna song (taken out...

 
 
 

Resident Evil 5: An airing of grievances

Hi there, allow me to grab a bat and beat this very dead horse just one more time. Keep in mind that this is coming from a relatively objective point of view. Of the ďclassicĒ Resident Evil titles, Iíve only played the second one for about...

 
 
 

How to not fail at life

Not much to say here about this one. It's just some helpful advice that certain people need to be told. This is funny and true. I'm sure we all know someone who needs to read this: http://img242.imageshack.us/img242/6827/howtonotfailatlif...

 
 
 

Welcome to the show

Thatís been me for the last 4 days. The reason why is because I welcomed home a new addition to my family. Yes the picture quality is terrible, it's my cell phone. My former digital camera is rotting somewhere in a northern Jersey landf...

 
 
 

NYCC Karaoke, holla

I would first like to apologize to the women of Koreatown, many of whom found their panties suddenly falling off during my sensual rendition of "I'll Make Love to You." I sometimes underestimate my power. It is my gift... my curse. I just...

 
 
 

Killzone 2: Logic optional

So it sounds like Killzone 2 is living up to the hype. As I donít own a PS3, I canít comment directly on what the demo is like. It sounds like itís a really fun game, and something I would plan on getting if I did own a PS3. But lost among...

 
 
 

Guess whoís back... at #1?

So Iím checking out everyoneís favorite web site the other day. No, not phonetrace.org (although that site is pretty cool), but Destructoid. Take a look at what has come back to haunt me: Yup, those rhesus monkeys at Game Vance are at it...

 
 
 

10 things you don't know about sickNasty

I guess I'll ride this train as well. 10. I look like Jason Biggs. Hereís an older picture of me. I think I really nailed the douchey expression on his face. Thatís right, true pimps go out wearing Blockbuster shirts. Ever since the firs...

 
 
 

Stealing in the name of... terrible ads

Itís no secret that the Dreamcast is a great console. I never owned one during its natural lifespan, but I managed to snag one a few years back, allowing me to catch up on some classic titles that I missed the first time around. The most re...

 
 
 

Hold on to your butts...

The other day I was posting a comment on Dtoid when it hit me. I have opinions. They matter much more than anyone else's. And if there's one thing people are clamoring for, it's more opinions from a random person on the internet. So whip...

 
 

About sickNastyone of us since 8:55 AM on 07.25.2007

I was raised on the Commodore and 386 computers, and then Sega Genesis. Thus my gaming identity was formed by a steady diet of Shareware(one word: Apogee), floppy disks, and rented Genesis games.

From there I went into the pupae stage with the Saturn and Nintendo 64, emerging from my cocoon with an Xbox.

These days, my time is spent on my 360 and Dreamcast. My PSP mostly finds use as an awkward mp3 player.

I work in advertising in NYC. As a graduate of PSU, when I'm not playing games or murdering vagrants, I'm following college football(JoePa is my religion)


Currently in rotation:
Halo 3
ODST
Far Cry 2
Turok
Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb
Marvel vs. Capcom 2
