    Haha, I hope the chances are high! And I'll say "sure."

    That's tough, but maybe Demon's Souls (even though that's cheating as it was 2009) and Parasite is probably near the top of that movie list.

    I try to focus on one thing, and budget my time accordingly. The real secret is that my wife is so amazing! She's been incredibly supportive in every way as I moved to games writing full time.

    My wife and I will randomly still say Peggle quotes to each other, such as "I like yarn!" We loved that series. I really like Minecraft and find it perpetually fun. It's neat to load in worlds other people have created or make my own from time to time to chill out.

    Have an open mind for pretty much everything, and take your time.

    1) A fake-egg and fake-sausage sandwich with fake cheese on a toasted bagel. It's actually pretty good and tastes roughly the same as the real thing! The cheese melts, sausage isn't that great quality of meat anyway, and Just Egg is pretty close to actual eggs. 2) Now? It's not a bar, but Sour...

    Jordan actually has me beat on tenure! 1) I'm most proud of Destructoid being able to adapt to the modern era. While it was known as an irreverent site in the past, it's nice to know that we can keep a lot of that irreverence but still stay relevant. I hope that in the next few years we're...

    Cyclops. Wait, they aren't making the game everyone actually wants. Uh, probably Hawkeye, once I unlock a non-default costume for him.

    1) Not very. I used to be really slender and gravitated toward sports like basketball/tennis/running. 2) Haha I love them all, etc, as you said. I do miss Jim, though. Jim is a huge reason why I got into this industry in 2008-ish and I miss our morning chats. 3) Haha yea. I was just thinking...

    1) Haha no, it's one of my least favorite things to do. Luckily my wife loves it. 2) I used to see 1-2 movies a week in theaters due to Alamo Drafthouse's membership program and AMC A-List, so it's been tough. I love going to the movies, even alone. In the meantime, I stream around 1-2 new...

    "Was A Link Between Worlds really a 6.5? <3" Haha yeah, I still think that. I replay Zelda games often and that's usually near the bottom of my list. "No but seriously. Have you ever second guessed a review?" Not really. I try to be comprehensive when I review something so I don't have second...

    I would say Sucker Punch before Ghost of Tsushima. Way too many people slept on Sly Cooper, which is one of the best mascot platformer franchises ever made and a strong reason why the PS2 is arguably the most entertaining console of all time. Overall, I'd say Treasure. They had a run creating...

    I have a few friends who live in Italy, and the idea of giving up anything is much harder for them, so I definitely understand!

    Haha that Jim nickname really stuck, I love it. 1) I think they should all be "Demons-likes," because Demon's Souls is still the best entry and everything should be held to its standard. 2) No, not at all. Not genuine ones. Mostly in jest. In all seriousness, a 6.5 isn't that bad of a score...

    I just looked, and I have over 14,000 front page posts for Destructoid. I believe that's more than any other writer in the site's history. There's a lot to choose from! I like writing Nintendo reviews. Those usually garner a lot of discussion from fans and I love reading the comments for them...

    Hey! Nice to see you again: digitally. 1) I don't ever get burned out. I might not like a particular game, but I'm ready to play something else next at all times. 2) The removal of weapon durability and themed dungeons are probably the two major things everyone is looking for. Though, I...

    I have! Actually, it was directly due to a community member's recommendation via the comment section when I was talking about Trigun on the front page. This community is great.

    1) Better Call Saul, You're the Worst, The Leftovers. 2005-on is a good era to pick. The post-Sopranos-era TV renaissance with The Office/30 Rock/Breaking Bad all starting at roughly the same time. 2) It's tough to pick out one game, but the hardest reviews for me are the ones where something...

    I get roughly 8 hours, sometimes a little less if my brain is on overdrive. I go to bed a lot earlier than most of my peers: polling people, I think most of my friends go to sleep around midnight. I used to have sleeping issues, but what really helped me is cutting off caffeine entirely after...
