I feel like all the sudden, my precious Earth Defense Force is going through some sort of renaissance. A few months ago, I was happily replaying the 360 version with one of my best friends in mad pursuit of the Genocide Gun, ...   read

Sure, the DS is choked with cute platformers -- we all already know that. Still, when I hear that a game is coming our way that not appeal to my retro sensibilities, but also is being headed up by the same folks who took the ...   read

Go check out Destructoid's collectible toy culture blog, which I proudly run:



Here is a list of things you should know about me:
I'm a female game/toy blogger living in New Orleans.
The NES is my favorite system of all time, closely followed by the PS2.
My DS is more or less glued to my person.
I can't resist playing Contra. Ever.
I think toys are the best solution to not wanting to grow up, and I have an always-growing collection of them, which is why I started Tomopop.
I require sushi for living.
I'm hopelessly addicted to Japanese dramas and skinny Japanese boys with awful hair.
I love wandering around used bookstores for hours.
I think about throwing rocks at people a lot.
I replay The Legend of Zelda about 5 times a year.
I read a lot.
I can't live without music.

Kon-kon!


This Pedro guy is pretty good.

And these RetroforceGo! people aren't so bad.


Actually, the people I work with are pretty freaking awesome in general.


Sometimes I put on costumes, too.
