Why I Love Destructoid (Short and Sweet)

I love Destructoid because, while there are the occasional trolls to deal with, I don't have to worry about this: The underage gamer. The kid who finds joy in mocking older gamers. The kid who uses haxor-L33t speak, even though the exten...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I want to strangle Club Nintendo

Look at it there. The logo. It's so simple, yet so inviting. You know right away what it is, and all the magic it potentially holds upon your little gamer heart. But, the damn thing is playing you. Any attempts to access the wonders Clu...

 
 
 

A Time to Destroy: Saint's Row 2

Okay, let's get the major complaint out of the way: yes, Saint's Row 2, like its predecessor, is a blatant rip-off of the Grand Theft Auto series. But is that so wrong, especially with GTA IV's realistic slant? I was happy to find that Sa...

 
 
 

Son of a... (Persona 2 reprint)

Atlus, I love you. Really, I do. You know how to treat us gamers right, giving us a ton of freebies with your video games. But...goddammit. Maybe you could've announced this one a little earlier, like back when I dropped $60 for a copy of...

 
 
 
 

Snagged a copy of Fable 2 early...

Before I mention how the game is, here's my proof... Here it is, after opening it: Here's a shot of the sticker along the top, which was obviously ignored by the store I got it from: Yeah, those are Grateful Dead bears. They are my 4-y...

 
 
 

DLC gone wild (Tales of Vesperia)

Tales of Vesperia DLC will allow you to skip grinding and buy your way to the next level (via Kotaku). I...I don't know what to say. Seriously? Okay, I'm all for DLC when you are given new maps, maybe an extra level/area. Hell, even out...

 
 
 

Ghostbusters isn't canceled...it's delayed

...and it has no publisher (via Kotaku). Goddamit. I hope it's not a decision made due to something Activision saw in the game and didn't like...such as it sucking total ass. I've been looking forward to this one, and now I have to wait ...

 
 
 

It's a step in the right direction...

Iga, Mr. Castlevania, expresses possible interest in bringing the next 2-D Castlevania to WiiWare. While this is cool news, and the development of such a game may hinge upon Mega Man 9's success, I'm a little concerned about the amount he'...

 
 
 

Dead Rising for the Wii being dumbed-down

Edit: Yeah, no need for the question mark up there in the title...no doubt it's being dumbed-down... Yeah, we all know that the Wii isn't as powerful as the 360. And while I love my Wii (heh heh), this image makes me hesitant about the Dea...

 
 
 

At least Iga and Konami are giving us options

Castlevania excites me in ways that should be reserved for wife. When I hear news of a new game, my heart races, I get a little dizzy, and...uh...something happens...down there. Two Castlevania games? Forget about it...those geezers that...

 
 
 

Dead Rising: The Burt & Aaron Saga

I'm relatively new to the world of Dead Rising, having started my adventures a few weeks ago. So far, I'm loving it. Minor complaints, like text size (I'm playing it on an SDTV), and not being able to freakin' smash Otis with the phone he g...

 
 
 
 

The Start of the Affair: Dragon Warrior (NES)

*Quick warning...the game is what, almost 20 years old, but if you never played it, there may be spoilers ahead. But seriously...20 years. I've been playing video games ever since I was four. I was introduced into this magical world by my...

 
 
 

Win back your gaming spouse...seriously?

I submit for your approval this story, giving tips to winning back your spouse, should they go down the dark, twisted path of video games. Seriously? These are the tips they give? And what's with the male example? I'm sure there are fema...

 
 
 

Brawl Online - 1 for 2

So, the night of the 9th, I set up my Brawl WiFi options...took a couple tries to get connected (kept getting the 51031 or whatever error). Called my friend up, he had his all set up and ready to go. After exchanging friend codes, we star...

 
 
 

Hey ma! I made a game called 'Kid Icarus'!

Just a quick warning: though the game is 20+ years old, there may be some spoilers ahead. If you haven't played the game but plan to, stop reading now. ------------------------------------- I used to love playing Kid Icarus when it came o...

 
 
 

Castlevania 2-D, I love thee

Last night, my wife had control of the TV. Ghost Hunters International was on, but we both think it's sub-par to the original. Brian is a spaz. The leader guy (Ron? Russ?) looks like he killed/could kill someone...kinda like an ex-con. Andy...

 
 
 

Life and Death, anyone?

I was checking out Trauma Center: New Blood, when I had a flashback to the early 90's. I was just starting high school, and had told my parents I'd like to become a doctor, possible a brain surgeon. So, they went out and bought the PC game ...

 
 
 

I don't care what you say about Zelda 2...

...I like it. Adventures of Link...FTW. I have liked it since it was released, and will long after we're all playing video games with electrodes hooked to our brains. It wasn't as good as the first one, but that's not to say it was a horri...

 
 
 

Lots of blood vs. touching fish

I picked up No More Heroes and Endless Ocean last week. They couldn't be any more different from each other, yet I enjoy them both. I also have small complaints about both. With No More Heroes, the game starts off on a bloody foot...an awe...

I've been playing video games for many, many years, starting at the innocent age of 4 (back in 1981). I have no affiliation to any one system; if a console has good games, I'm there. Currently own an NES (yes, it works), Genesis, DS Lite, Gamecube, PS2, Wii, and 360...oh, and a PC, but I rarely play games on it. With well over 300 games for all systems in my collection...pretty sure it's approaching 400 now.

As of late, my 360 has been getting as much play-time as my PS2 had. My poor Wii hasn't been touched in a long time...heh heh. He said "wii".

Hooray.

I said...hooray.

For my win on Chad's "The Great Retro Quiz! .23: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link":


'Bout time my knowledge of the red-headed step-child of the Zelda universe came in handy. Not counting the CD-i games...they are like the bald, albino street urchins that somehow made it into your house and refuse to leave even after you feed them rat poison.
