For Destructoid, I use the Dark Chao as my avatar, for the simple fact that I like the Chao. I used to play the hell out of the Chao Garden in Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, to the point where I would replay the Sonic/Shadow levels over and ov...

Before I dropped off writing for a while I decided to dabble in a little poetry. The first piece is something I actually wrote for school, and is a piece I'm rather proud of. The other two are pieces I just wrote and currently have no opini...

 
 
 
 

Old School: Almost Leaving Video Games

On a recent episode of the Kinda Funny Gamescast, a question for the cast was if they ever walked away from video games, if any of them had ever stopped playing video games for an extended period of time. I thought I’d give...

Digging through the lies - Shovel Knight

Is there a difference between American and British Shovels? Maybe. But they didn't localise the game properly in that case so my point still stands. Shovel Knight has clearly lied to us all. If we watch trailers of this “acclaimed&rd...

Music Notes: Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen

  When I review albums, I like to find a central theme that it's trying to communicate. "Emotion" by Carly Rae Japsen has two modes, so to speak. One is "I love you, you love me, so let's dance and mess around", the other is "I cheris...
