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...


The RPG Maker Buyers Guide

For those of you just tuning in, I recently started an RPG Maker Workshop series to help aspiring RPG developers become the game-making experts they’ve dreamed of. Yet in writing that, I assumed that my readers had already purchased ...


I'm back, and I made my own website too!

Have you ever been away from home for a really long time? Do you know that warm fuzzy feeling of seeing old friends and family for a week after being away for months at a time? That's kind of how I feel writing this post. It's good to be h...


Review: Bacon Club Cheeseburger

    It's time to join the club   When I first heard about Bacon Club Cheeseburger, I was skeptical to say the least. Developer McDonald's is no stranger to anti-consumer practices, and the critically panned Black H...


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...


Top 10 Sexiest Dtoiders

If you asked me to fill out a list of ten reasons why I come to Destructoid, numbers one through nine would probably be a picture of Marlon Brando riding a polar bear which is wearing a jetpack made of shotguns. But at number ten, I'd prob...


Pok�mon X taught me how to enjoy gaming again

Playing Pok�mon X brings me back to a simpler time. And no, I don't mean the days of drinking Surge and watching Nickelodeon. I'm talking about the years after studying for weekly spelling tests and before Steam sales flooded our game lib...


Top Ten Spookiest Pok�mon

It's Halloween, and there is literally nothing scarier we could be celebrating on this day of shock and terror than the�Pok�mon�series. I mean, seriously, have you read the creepypastas? Chances are, if you buy a used copy of any of the G...


The Stanley Parable's Noncontroversial Controversy

Look, I get it, the reasoning for those images being changed in The Stanley Parable�is a bit silly. I haven't played the game myself, and I hope to change that when I have a little bit more spare change, but I get why the impulse is to be...


Klonoa 2 is awesome and you should play it

Not only is Klonoa 2: Lunatea�s Veil the best game you�ve (probably) never played, but it�s also my favorite game. As in ever made. I�m not here to convince you that Klonoa 2 is the best game ever made (objectively, it�s not), but I can ...


3 StreetPass Games that Need to be Made

The 3DS StreetPass games aren't great because they�re deep games. They�re great because they�re accessible versions of occasionally obtuse genres that are designed for short bursts. I�m not sure if the StreetPass games have managed to in...



Raise your hand if you like boobs. If you didn't, I'm going to assume you're lying, because you clicked a blog called "boobs." I'm not here to guilt trip you, because, I mean, who doesn't love boobs? Heterosexual men are kind of hardwired...


My Confession: I Love a Bad Game

Final Fantasy XIII does nearly everything that I believe a jRPG shouldn't do. The dungeon design is nonexistent, all pressure of resource management has been nullified, and the story is honestly the worst I think I�ve ever seen in a game....


Why Do We Still Care About Mega Man?

It's been two days since Mega Man was announced as a playable character in the new Super Smash Bros. and I still feel adrenaline left over from the excitement. I know I'm not alone in this. Go to just about any Mega Man related video on Y...


The Story Behind JoyfulSanity's Avatar

An introduction after four blogs is a little silly, isn't it? It's like being at a party for three hours and finally telling everyone your name. In Destructoid's case, it's a party full of characters so diverse and quirky that it could be...


Why I Love Your Blog

Did you know that there was a blog recently posted called "Why I Hate Your Blog?" It's a great read, and I recommend you take some time to read it. Although, if you do, remember to come back here afterwards, because I'm lonely. ;_; This ...


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!

The Ys Buyers Guide
Keep it classy: Red Mage searching for an identity
I Love Final Fantasy: All The Bravest
Videogames don't let me think about the awful things I do in them
My fondest videogame memories involve breaking them

My blogs are like my childrens and I love them all. Having said that...

The following are my personal favorite blogs among what I've written here:

Why I Love Your Blog
A 100% Objective Review of the Ys Series
Sexualized is a lazy term
Klonoa 2 is awesome and you should play it
