Happy birthday to my birthday buddy FrostyFlakes and I! This will probably be my last birthday post here so have a fantastic day.


I've been away the last couple months, but Celica gave me the heads up about the current situation so I wanted to thank-you guys for the eight or so years I've spent here lurking or posting blogs. Much love to Chris and this community.


It's been bittersweet saying goodbye to the 3DS eShop, especially on the system's 12th birthday. At least I got to redownload some games/videos and take a trip down memory lane. Plus the music on the Wii U eShop was so good. It will be missed.


Happy birthday Panda! I always get excited when you like one of my comments. Me in my head: Panda noticed me! Have a great day! 😁


Since it released today, I think it's fair to announce that I got to work on the set of The Last of Us show back in 2021! I'll probably check it out later since I need to get a whole new streaming service to watch it, but I hope you guys enjoy it!


I want to thank-you guys for being so supportive as I've settled into lurking more than my earlier days. I'm still here, tossing upvotes around. Much love. Have a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday!


Happy International Ninja Day! 2022 has been a particular good year for a certain group of ninja. Also, happy birthday MeanderBot!


Have a fantastic birthday Mike! You're a truly caring person and I appreciate you being a part of the community.


Today's the cloudless day! Have a good one DTOID community.


My Hope for Current Gen Exclusives

Many studios in 2022 began announcing that their upcoming titles would release exclusively for the current generation of video game consoles. Naturally, I'm quite curious what trends we'll see for the exclusive games coming to the Play...


Shout-out to my fellow birthday buddy Frosty!


Happy birthday Soulbow! You're a truly fun part of the community and I hope your day is as lovely as you. Have a happy new year DTOID and a hopefully positive 2022!


I completed my goal of writing 12 monthly blogs within a year today! Quite a few ended up on the front page and I truly appreciate it. Thanks for the great memories here and the opportunity to practice writing, DTOID community!


The Beautiful Silence of Metroid

"..." Did you hear that? That was the dialogue of a silent protagonist. I’m a pretty reserved person so you might think I’d be into silent protagonists, right? Not quite. When I’m playing games, I like to be immersed ...


What's Sonic's Next 'Ultimate' Remaster?

When Sonic Colors Ultimate was initially announced, many people wondered why Colors was chosen for a remaster. It turns out a multitude of factors including the original game's popularity, limited availability, and the success of the S...


The Trials of Post-Graduation Gaming

Do you remember the feeling of playing a new game and getting absolutely hooked to your latest gaming discovery? I've struggled to experience that blissful feeling for a while this year. Don't get me wrong; there are plenty of quality ...


Happy Birthday Frosty! Happy 40th Anniversary Donkey Kong! And Happy Birthday to me! I'm so hyped that an MCU movie (Black Widow) is coming out on my birthday. Plus I posted a new blog!


What's The Future of Superhero Games?

We live in an amazing era for superheroes. The Avengers, Black Panther, Wonder Woman and the like have transcended into cinematic phenomenons. At this point, film studios are digging deep into the wells of comic books with characters l...


Community Bonding With Voice Actors

Video games have connected us in various ways throughout their history. Competing in the arcades, playing with family and friends, sharing cheat codes, and gaming online all come to mind. Games help us find a community that makes us fe...

Welcome to the franchise, son

[This is a fun conversation starter from Destructoid reader NinjaSpeed. I can't believe I waited until Kingdom Hearts III of all games to try the series for the first time, and I'm still working through that mental whiplash. -Jordan] Are th...

Celebrating the Nintendo 3DS' 10th Anniversary

The Nintendo 3DS leaves a legacy as one of Nintendo's most important systems during its time on the market. However, the system needed to overcome a bumpy launch window first to achieve that success. To celebrate a system I've loved ov...


So glad to see a new TMNT game! I haven't gotten into a good one since 2009's Smash-Up and their appearance in Injustice 2.


Now that E3 2021's live event has been cancelled, do you think any companies are going to join E3's virtual events even though they can stream presentations on their own?


Out of everything that could possibly be announced during the next Nintendo Direct, I'm hoping for a new 2D Metroid game the most. Fingers crossed! Honorable mentions: New Kirby game, Skyward Sword HD
