Grasshopper started a 72 day countdown to their 25th Anniversary. And I guess this is how I learn they've been around for 25 years. Fingers crossed I finally get that Shadows of the Damned remake/remaster.


Welp. Guess I love Paranormasight.


The TMNT Last Ronin game has me thinking, what story arcs/AUs from comics would be good inspirations for games? I personally want a Spider-Man: Spider Island inspired game. I think a Spidey game where the criminals also have similar abilities would be rad


TMNT is getting a game based on the Last Ronin story. Pretty sure I manifested this into reality as I've been asking for this since I heard of that comic's existence. Bit concerned about a AAA TMNT game in the current industry but trying to stay positive.


Heads up, The Criterion Collection is having a 24-hour 50% off sale on their site. Still has over 23 hours to go.


Please accept this near hour and a half long documentary about Gorillaz - Plastic Beach.


My wallet is not a fan of all these positive Bayonetta Origins reviews.


Prepared for the film industry to do their best to copy A24 for the next few years.


I feel like Exoprimal should be appealing in the same way Earth Defense Force is but is ruined by being a GaaS. Also EDF is dumb in an endearing way, Exoprimal looks dumb in an over focus-tested way.


All I need from the Capcom stream is confirmation that stuff like the Boktai crossover content is in the Battle Network collection. Anything else is gravy.


Happy International Women's Day! Dropped a (wildly incomplete) collection of things created by women in the comments to celebrate. Feel free to add to the pile if you want and please consider checking some of this stuff out. EDIT: BUMP


Bayonetta Origins has a demo on the Switch eshop.


Okay. This is looking pretty solid.


Starting to think the reputation Rocksteady has is really undeserved.


I was going to post a State of Play prediction but I genuinely am not expecting much from this. Anything worth showing off will be saved for something like E3 or TGS. And honestly Sony's been pretty lame this gen for my taste. Hope I'm wrong tho.


Tried that Peeps flavored Pepsi. Pepsi Co are really scraping the bottom of the barrel lately. Doesn't help they switch from sugar to HFCS without reformulating their recipes so everything tastes off. Pic unrelated (or is it?!?!?)


So that Theatrhythm: Final Bar Line...it's good. I really miss the stylus gameplay from the 3DS and I think some of the button prompts suck (also the action is too busy and sometimes fucks me up) but it's fun. Still think the 1st game was the best one.


I want a game like What the Golf? but for fishing. And no, I don't know what I mean by that either.


We should have an Untitled Goose sequel by now.


TIL the Justice League cartoon was almost much, much different.


Btw what's up with Nintendo only giving people like two weeks to preorder the physical version of Metroid Prime?


It's hard for me to get too excited for the Gameboy/Advance Online apps when I remember that they just stopped updating the NES/SNES ones for no apparent reason and they're missing a ton of classics you'd think they would have.


Direct prediction: It'll end with $70 pricing being confirmed and within 24 hours fanboys will have convinced themselves it's not only necessary it's actually good, Nintendo has blessed us by charging ten dollars more HALLELUJAH!!


I cannot wait until they announce that Metroid Prime remake, now for the low, low price of US $70...


Despite knowing it's a pipe dream, there is a part of me that really wants Hi-Fi Rush to do for video games what Spider-verse did for animated films. Just please games industry, make more games that are just fun and complete at launch.


Seeing people reply to the news that Redfall will require a constant internet connection to play single player with, "So what? That's every modern game!" has made me lose hope in the youth. They are too stupid.


Dude made the Chao Garden a standalone game.


Beat Wavetale. Fun game. Brief. But fun. Controlled really well and looked very nice. The story was not exactly the most original I've ever heard, but it was told well enough. And there were some clever ideas and just a lot of fun to be had. Recommended.


About dephoenixone of us since 10:41 AM on 03.01.2016

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Former Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, Wes's Unofficial Father, and Self-Appointed Supreme High Priest of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer and aspiring writer. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
