My 2014 EarthBound Journal

Last year, I replayed EarthBound for the first time in many years. I always find something new when I play this game, but the big difference this time around is that I was playing it on the Wii U. One of the greatest features to this system...


Giving Thanks: The Miiverse

Though touted as one of the greater evolutions in gaming, I’ve never been a huge proponent of online gaming. Indulging in a game’s world and story is a personal experience for me. The voices and actions of other players, pa...


How Theatrhythm helped me ring bells

There is no bigger interest in my life than music. When I�m not actively engaged with someone, chances are good I�ll have my headphones on and cranked to a borderline unsafe levels. I carefully select the music that wakes me up each morning...


Aural Emotions

There's many reasons why I adore the music of video games, from those that extract ridiculous potential from short loops, to those which are unbelievably catchy, binding themselves forever into one's memory. But by far, my favorite pieces o...


RetroforceGO! Perfect Best

RetroforceGO! was what brought me to Destructoid, and more importantly, what brought me back into gaming. To say the least, it was the only gaming podcast I had come across that was just about hanging out and talking games, rather than st...


Mega Man 3 is a dirty, dirty game

Apologies in advance to anyone who can't look at Mega Man 3 the same way after this. In the original Mega Man, the robots are designed to perform industrial tasks, and conveniently double as a world domination task force for Dr. Wily. For ...


Teh Bias: STFU!

When I watch a movie that was based on a book, there is usually a smarmy bastard or two who can�t help but incessantly remark at the differences in this adaptation. They always arrive at the conclusion that the book was better, and that any...


Zombie Panic in Wonderland Review

As a younger lad, I was fortunate enough to experience large arcades in the local malls, not quite in their prime, but certainly a few years before their decline into the dark days of a few busted cabinets shoved into a neglected corner, on...


Blaster Master Overdrive Review

Like many gamers, I have fond, albeit controller-hurling, memories of the original Blaster Master. It was classic side-scrolling action with a dual mechanic by taking the player to overhead dungeons. The music was catchy, the graphics were ...


My expertise: One-Upmanship

I�m not normally a competitive person. When I played Starcraft on Battle.Net, I always sought out the 4v4 Computer and Comp Stomp games. The summer where everyone I knew was breathing Perfect Dark, I always wanted to play cooperative games ...


The Future: Step 3 is Always Profit

A hot topic of the current generation of console gaming is the casual vs. hardcore debate. Inspired by the Wii's mainstream success, gamers have endlessly debated exactly where the line is drawn, and what defines each respectable side. Whet...


Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

When it comes to the number one video game spot for me, the eternal struggle is between Final Fantasy IV, Chrono Trigger, and Seiken Densetsu 3. More often than not, I'll regard FFIV as the winner, mostly because it was the game that kick-s...


My Game Collection

A gamer's collection and setup is a window into what sort of gamer he or she may be. With that in mind, the following string of photos are a quick insight into what sort of gamer I am. There are some missing items, most notably my 360 and g...


A moving book, a readable movie

On my introductory post to the forums here, I mentioned it would be a long and eloquent soliloquy to fully describe why I feel that a video game from around the 16 bit era is a movie and a book in one package. Since, I've taken a few moment...

I mostly enjoy retro games, but not entirely for the challenge. I like games to be a mix of a book and a movie in that they are visually stimulating but still allow the player to fill in the voices and other elements with their imagination. I'm weird and awkward, which really makes me stand out among gamers.

Outside of video games, my other great passion is music. I'd consider myself a metalhead because it is what I gravitate towards most. My collection also boasts healthy helpings of shoegaze, dream pop, darkwave, visual kei, neofolk, neoclassical, classic rock, prog rock, classical, and of course, video game soundtracks, along with smatterings of whatever else has caught my attention.

My favorite games include:

Bit.Trip series
Blazing Lazers
Bucky O'Hare
Castlevania II, IV, Symphony of the Night, Order of Ecclesia
Cave Story
Chrono Trigger/Cross
Cthulhu Saves the World
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Final Fantasy IV, VI, VII. Theatrhythm
Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon
Gargoyle's Quest
Illusion of Gaia

Link's Awakening
Lords of Thunder
