I want Mighty No. 9 to be saved

Objective analysis of Mighty No.9 is impossible, so I'm under no pretense that I can offer it. Even if the Kickstarter campaign didn't carry the absolute truckload of drama that it does now, the very premise was bound to cloud judgmen...


Just a reminder that anyone look to buy Sanic games during the Steam sale should probably get the Humble Bundle instead: https://www.humblebundle.com/sonic-25th-anniversary-bundle


Having just finished playthrough 1 of Mighty No. 9, I'm now torn. I had a lot of fun with it by the end, but with all the flubs under its belt, I doubt a refined sequel could ever exist. Alas, we're left with a fun, but very messy game.


As a backer who actually didn't care about all the drama leading up to Mighty No 9, I actively hated my first session with it. By my second go at it, I thought it was alright. Bets are on if it'll either grow on me or I'll go back to hating it!


Playing Castlevania: Circle of the Moon for the first time in over 20 (or 10 actually) years, and damn it's impressive for a GBA launch title.

December is the month I go somber (99% NVGR)

Ever since I started blogging here around the beginning of the year, I've been thinking I should keep away from talking about personal drama or struggles for the sake of my own (joyful)sanity. For this month, I think it's for the best that...

About JoyfulSanityone of us since 5:05 PM on 07.09.2012

I'm a guy who likes to write about videogames. Sometimes in funny ways and sometimes in artsy ways. You'll just have to read my blogs to find out the difference between the two!

I'm in my mid 20s, I'm from the United States, and this is currently the most productive thing I'm doing with my B.A. in English. I also tend to write really long comments in response to people that start to read like mini-blogs. I apologize in advance for the walls of text.

Also, I like to have fun. I write about controversies sometimes because I get compelled, but I much prefer using caps lock to convey my love for quality RPGs.

If you like my content on Destructoid, you can find even more of it by going to my website!


I'm currently playing the following:
The Elder Scrolls Online
The Infinite List of Kemco RPGs
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Ys (Any and all of them)
Final Fantasy XIV

I've been featured on the front page! Check it out!
