If current estimations are to be believed, the current console generation will be the longest we’ve seen in the history of gaming. As of right now, just a little less than one-third of my life fits between November 16, ...


Ironclad, the folks behind critical darling Sins of a Solar Empire, have been hard at work on what they claim will be a reinvention of the MOBA as we know it. Last year I got a chance to take a look at a few early builds...


The fact that BioWare isn't quite done with Mass Effect 3 has been known for some time. Today however, we have our first set of screenshots which include a casino, apparently on the Citadel, and a krogan with what looks to be...


If you've been even tangentially connected with anything resembling internet culture within the past... I dunno several years, then you're probably aware of the fact that there's a decent chunk of society that thinks that the...


It’s not very often that I get a chance to review something bad. It’s even rarer for me to come across headphones that I just hate. Truth is, most things that you spend $50 or more on are pretty good. Mediocrity c...


Omega is the second of the “post-Extended Cut” bits of single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3. The series and the community that has been built up around it have been taken on a wild ride over the past several months. There’s been a lot of exciting bits and a few disappointments. Unfortunately, Omega can take its place among the latter.


So… have you ever wanted to be a cardboard shark hellbent on taking down “the man” and all his dirty, environment-destroying machines? Yeah it’s not something I ever really thought about eit...


So... I did a feature that I thought was pretty fantastic, and our staff played against SOE in Planetside 2... sooo yeah we're basically the most awesome people ever. Destructoid Original: Podtoid 227: Dr. Mario with a B...


I haven’t been a fan of Halo for years. By the time we were asked to “finish the fight,” I had grown sick of the monotony. Reach barely managed to hold my interest past the first half-hour. Everywhere I look...


So Skyfall comes out tonight... by the time you guys see this, I'll be watching that... so yeah... In other news y'all should totally check out the feature Chad put out earlier today. It's absolutely fantastic and really hear...


I came across Destructoid back in 2006. At the time, it was barely a blip on the industry's radar. It was just a pack of dedicated bloggers with a rebellious streak. Now, this site has seen at least a dozen of its own graduat...


So yeah... Halo 4 is probably pretty good. If you disagree, you're probably wrong because you haven't played. When you have, you are totally entitled to say whatever you want. I'll admit I was incredibly skeptical. I've hated...


Earlier this week I got a chance to check out the new video game barcade /nightclub here in Minneapolis -- Insert Coins.  This place has pretty much every system, a ton of arcade cabinets and some pretty fantastic specia...


Last year, in preparation for Battlefield 3, Alex Bout created a basic part list that could run the game with moderate settings and a solid frame rate. This year, I wanted to see how much further we could push the specs on more or less the same budget. I was pretty surprised by what I found.


Our electronic world, for all of the new abilities it can give us, is infinitely more fragile than it once was. Some modern devices literally shatter when dropped a few feet. Hell, even the more robust devices in our silicon ...


If you follow me on any of my social media bits, you're probably well-aware that I am currently obsessed with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop. It's kinda, sorta, totally amazing.Destructoid Original:Podtoid 223: Str...

So... earlier today my Pokemon Black and White 2 review went up. I wasn't super kind, but I wasn't super mean either. Anyway... somehow Pokemon music entered the conversation, and that made me want to highlight one ...


Pokémon is practically a cultural institution. Every true child of the '90s knows every word to the theme song, lost a lot of their parents' money on the trading card game, and spent many dozens of hours testing playgr...


While pretty much everyone these days games, it still seems that most of the best events always hit the bigger cities. When I was growing up I longed to visit the Pokemon Center in New York or E3 in Los Angeles. There were no...


I dunno if this is the right audience, but I really enjoy documentaries and educational things. Recently on YouTube a bunch of people have created some pretty interesting content that really boils dow...


So ... Burnout is awesome. Always has been, always will be. And while it is true that we haven't seen a true game from that franchise in a while, Criterion has been doing its best to bring all of the insane, anarchic fun we ...


If you haven’t been able to tell by the fairly large number of headphone reviews I’ve done for this site, I have a thing for audio equipment. It's probably the single biggest investment I make beyond my daily caff...


Pikmin is just fantastic. I mean... we all kinda know it, because it's Pikmin, but my roommate powered through the first one again a couple of days ago, and now he's working on Pikmin 2. It's just... so great. Oh yeah, the To...


It doesn't take much to really improve the gaming experience. Better seating, better lighting, better company, etc. are sometimes all it takes to go from an utterly insufferable trek through your simulated world of ...


Over the past 24 hours we've been utterly BOMBARDED with Wii U news. Fifty launch titles, $350 for the top model, coming November 18th, etc. etc. So... stuff's intense and we should be seeing Msoft and Sony pick-up their...


It's been awhile, folks, but now I'm back with more beer reviews along with your daily recap. Today's beer comes from home state of Oklahoma. I picked it up around New Year's Day, and just never got around to trying it. I was...


So... Dale was bragging that he got to play SimCity at gamescom. That's pretty awesome. It was my personal game of show for E3, and the stuff I saw there was impressive. After the exceptional disappointment that&nbs...


Last Friday, one of my coworkers brought in a homemade IPA. Now I realize that this is kind of a BS review because no one else will be able to pick it up… like ever. Still, I thought drinking boss-approved-beer at work...


There was a huge sale going down at my local liquor store and I thought it'd be a great time to pick up some local microbrews. After looking around a bit, I settled on a case of "Moo Joos Oatmeal Milk Stout". Head was a ...


It's fizzy water. Also, it tastes like sadness. Destructoid Original: Exclusive: Meet the Kingdom Hearts 3D sound teamLive show: Finally, Kai has come to Vindictus!Community: Next-Gen: Gaming's handheld camcorderFor...


I've been a huge fan of Stone in the past. Their Arrogant Bastard is easily one of my favorite ales, and I'm in love with their Imperial Russian Stout (the non-anise version). When I got my hands on the Self-Righteous I was e...


There’s a steadily growing market for smaller and smaller desktops. These are machines that keep all of the advantages of a full computer (e.g., more power, ventilation, interchangeable parts) and the portability of a l...


THE BEER REVIEWS CONTINUE.I'd always heard Hoegaarden was a pretty nice light summer beer, and I thought "What better way to celebrate the fourth than to drink an import"? I was very impressed with the whole thing. Most wheat...


My favorite beers are definitely the stouts. They're thick, full-bodied and packed with flavor, without being too nuanced. With Trappist ales, for example, I always feel like I need to focus on the taste because there's so mu...


As I'm sure everyone who is familiar with my previous work on Destructoid is already well aware, I have a thing for portable electronics and laptops in particular. Last week, I was able to put Origin's new 11-inch "netbook" t...


After the spectacular feedback I got from last week's beer review... I've decided to keep doing it. Every Thursday night, I'll have a new beer (new as one I haven't review before) and I'll incorporate it as part of the Hotnes...


Civilization has always had a special place in my heart. As a turn-based 4X strategy game, it is the antithesis of damn-near everything in the shooter-saturated landscape that is the modern game market. When it was initiall...


You'll have to forgive the lateness of this preview. I was bed-ridden for damn near four days after E3 on account of nerd-flu. Still, if you'll stick around for a little bit, I'd like to tell you about one of my favorite game...


Not too many people know this, but I'm a budding beer snob. Thanks to JRo, Conrad, and plenty others giving me crap about my beer selections last PAX Prime, I've started trying to broaden my horizons, get out and try new beve...
