Call of Doody: Fatigued Warfare.

I've noticed here on Destructoid as well as other places that I write about Call of Duty (and its derivatives) a lot. And I mean a lot. Which means I must love Call of Duty, and you're right. Yeah, I'm that person people hate because accord...


Cblogs of 06/20/11 and 06/21/11 + Late Funkisms!

Dag yo! I’ve been very busy and “away” from the site for a while, but catching up on a week of Dtoid is pretty much its own job! >_< In case anyone was wondering, I was in Taiwonto, Onterrible for a week for a mini-family reunion...

The Strategy Guide that changed my life

(It's been much too long since I posted something here: I've been busy with my studies for a while now. And it turns out that trying to study while E3 is going on is really darn difficult. Who would've thought? :P Fortunately, I'm done for ...



I would consider myself to be a strong boxer in the UFC. That's kinda why they call me the Headhunter. Sure, I don't quite have that one punch knockout power, but I will make sure people leave the ring looking a lot uglier than me. Tha...


Dragonblog Z

I believe I have decided to pass on Ocarina of Time 3D, though I did play it and it's fine. I've already played it in fact. Several times. Why would I want to play it again on a tiny (albeit third dimensionalized!) screen? If you are cu...


I made a Board Game + Contest

As this post goes live, I have spent the past 2 months buried in Sketchbook Pro, 8 hours cutting tiles, Countless many hours nervously pouring my soul into a project that will follow me to Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio this week. T...


Drew a Conclusion: You Don’t Know Jack HD

Those who find themselves drawn closer to the Saturday Night Live rendition of Celebrity Jeopardy, replete with the surly visages of Sean Connery and Burt Reynolds, than Trivial Pursuit will, odds are, have played Jellyvision’s You Don’t ...


Some thoughts on Dust 514 and Defiance

One thing that I've felt has been lacking on Dtoid has been the spotty, hard-to-find news about MMOs in general and about these games in specific. Though the news, as almost always has been the case on Dtoid, has been great, I feel like the...


Why I'm a Gamer and What Does That Mean Anyway?

So, as I promised before, I have content in the works. This is one piece of that content, and I'll try and keep it short, but not short enough to not cover at least some small, vague portion of the topic. Hold on, I'm going to grab a Coke Z...


An open letter to Gearbox regarding Duke Nukem.

Dear Gearbox, I honestly doubt you're going to see this little community blog I'm posting, but I'm going to pretend you have found it and are now reading it. The reason I'm writing this is to give my opinions on Duke Nukem Forever, and als...


Valkyria Chronicles Piano Pieces - Promotional Trailer

A whole lot of new information has been released today about the "Valkyria Chronicles Piano Pieces" album. There's a video you can watch on YouTube, which talks about how I met Sakimoto and got the project started, plus some insight into th...


Link's Awakening Review [Destructoid Review Format]

I never thought I'd see the day where I could play Ocarina of Time on the toilet. Technology has come so far. Back in my day, one played Link's Awakening, the first ever portable Zelda, on their Game Boy Color and counted oneself lucky if t...


Dead Space 2 :D

I love it! I've beaten it on normal and now i'm going through it again on survivalist for the elite suits and so i can get better so i can try for zealot. Bought it pre-owned so i didn't get the codes for multiplayer but from what i've seen...


A New Contest Approaches! (updated with more info)

A note: It's not about liking the genre at all. It's about giving something different a chance. That's all. Whether you like it or not doesn't really matter, so long as the post is well written and entertaining. So, it seems enough people ...


GUYS, GET OVER IT! Girls Game. Some Don't.

It is 2011 and I still see frequent blogs and articles of how to get that girlfriend or wife of yours into video games. Guys want to find ways to coax their girls into a passion for their hobby. Publishers try to scheme up ways to tap into ...


Shut up and take my rupees

Hello! This is going to be a post about Ocarina of Time 3D, but first, an introduction. I've lurked the site regularly for a little while now and tend to stick with the front page, commenting on news posts. I'll be going to PAX for the fir...


Portable Gaming Then....and....Now

Ok let me take you back in an era where portable gaming was taking it's first steps In my eyes atleast, that would be the original Gameboy. When I received my own rectangular brick of a gaming system from that day on I was infected with th...


Remake, Remaster, Rehash

Keza MacDonald at IGN thinks video game remakes are great. I disagree...sort of. MacDonald asserts that, “when handled correctly, remakes, remasters and re-releases are an extremely good thing, both for the industry and for us.” Accordin...


Trophies, Coins, Achievements - OH MY!

Once upon a time, great feats of gaming had no Achievements, Trophies, or Coins to rub in people's faces. What's the point, without them, right? Nintendo calls them 'Mythical Rewards', despite introducing them with the 3DS, and making it ne...


Good Does Not Mean Fun

There is something that has been bugging me recently. I have a friend (don't all laugh at once) who insists that for a game to be good it has to be fun. Now, before we get any further, we need to define these two words otherwise I'll get in...




Dragon Quest Xs gameplay is very similar to FFXI where it has an active turn based battle Right now it is way more accessible than Quests have good conveyance, npcs tell me where to get my quest items and I have npc party members! Its fun!
