But wait, there's more!

I spoil things a lot for myself. I use guides for games, I look up summaries on Wikipedia, I am online while I am in game. It�s rare that I�m surprised in a game, since I have usually read what happens next. Playing without a guide is more ...


An Explanation of Cookie Clicker

It�s been three weeks since I started playing. When I�m not playing, I have it idling in the background. I can�t remember the last time I was this obsessed with a game. I�m talking, of course, about�Cookie Clicker. Gaze upon the face of ma...


Bad Final Boss Fights

Imagine you're at a fine restaurant. Your food is delicious, the service is impeccable, and your dining companions provide great conversation. Everything is perfect, and then when the waiter gives you the bill, he spits in your face. W...


Thoughts on Okami

So I've been working my way through my backlog, and lamenting how long it's been since my most recent post, when I was struck by a burst of inspiration. I realized I could blog about various games as I went through them, starting with Okami...


Happy Holidays: Pata-pata-pata-pon!

Is this a thing? I haven�t seen any monthly-musings this month, but there was a prompt. It�s right here. http://www.destructoid.com/monthly-musing-happy-holidays-188757.phtml Anyway� As gamers, we slowly grow more jaded as we grow more e...


Unboxing my Omnomnom pen holder

Hey everyone, it's your friendly neighborhood Lazerpig here. As you may or may not know (probably may not), I won a plush Sir Omnomom at the Monster Hunter Tri party. Well, was awarded. They said the winner, and then I said they mispronoun...


How I spent the Monster Hunter Tri party

So, I had a lot of fun at the sleepover, and I wasn�t even there. I think I can say that my existence was validated, but I�m also fond of hyperbole. First awesome thing that happened was when they were setting up the cameras so we could se...


Hello there, D-Toid

Oh, hello there D-Toid. It's me again, your good buddy Lazerpig, here to write my introductory blog post thing. This is actually my third post, after two explaining why I don't like Metroid games. I'm thinking about making that into a serie...


Why I don't like Metroid Fusion or Prime.

I�ll start with Fusion, because this one was sort of hit-or-miss for most Metroid fans. It wasn�t the linearity that bothered me; I never did any of that sequence-breaking that makes the Metroid games so popular. Hell, I kind of liked it. T...


I don't like Metroid games.

So, I�m starting my blog with a shocker; I don�t like Metroid games. This probably isn�t surprising to many of you, but only because you read the title. So that doesn�t really count. But, you know, that�s sort of understandable; no genre is...


About Lazerpigone of us since 5:53 PM on 01.31.2010

I'm Lazerpig. One of my first video game memories was playing Super Mario Brothers on an NES at the house of some other kids who had the same babysitter as me. I remember being pretty good, although I'm not sure if I actually was; I also remember thinking I was the red ghost in Pac-Man around the same age. I think I was around 3. Anyway, I got my first video game system, a Game Boy Color, when I was 10 (I'm 27 now) and I have a lot of great memories. Super Mario Brothers Deluxe broke it. The A and -> buttons are heavily worn down, and they barely register anymore; I consider this a badge of honor.

Games I love:
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Zack and Wiki and the search for Barbaros' Treasure
Super Mario Galaxy
Both Golden Suns
Final Fantasy VI, Woolsey edition
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (and Seasons, but Ages was better)
Patapon 2
Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness
Fire Emblem 7
Fallout 2
Boktai (series)
Crash Team Racing. The first one. Best kart racer ever.
Cave Story

And here are some posts I'm particularly proud of
I don't like Metroid games
I don't like Metroid games 2: Electric Boogaloo
