There was a time back in middle school when flash games ruled a large part of my attention span. So many classics, surely you all remember that one with stickmen and tons of violence? How about that other one about violent st... read
If you're a fan of strategy RPGs you definitely know about the Final Fantasy Tactics series, and you're likely aware of Tactics Ogre, but have you heard of Valkyria Chronicles? Released relatively early in the PS3's life cycl... read
If you know anything about games, then you know that the Dreamcast is one of the most beloved consoles. And if you know anything about the Dreamcast then you know the Jet Set Radio is one of the best games available for Sega'... read

I wish there were witty things to say about Broforce, but what can you even say about this masterpiece? It's a co-op (bro-op) game about shooting tons of terrorists as the protagonists of your favorite action movies. This see... read
We've had a crazy week, haven't we? When I started at Destructoid all those years ago I never thought we'd be able to curate a Humble Bundle. Look at me now, mom! So what are we doing today? We're bringing it all full circle ... read
This has been a hell of a week, hasn't it? The Destructoid Humble Bundle is going strong, but it's time is almost up. So how are we going to celebrate? I'm going to play my favorite game in the bundle.

If you've played a game in the past generation, you're probably aware of World of Goo. 2D Boy's smash hit puzzle game is on nearly every platform imaginable and can be called a landmark on the indie game landscape. While... read
Yeehaw, it's time for Humble game roundup day 2. If you missed yesterday's festivities you missed a rollicking good time with PixelJunk Monsters. But it's time to put that craziness behind us. It's time to jump into Critter C... read

My apologies to the Anthropy family. While I was growing up my mother always taught me that revenge was a dish best served cold. Well Mom, today the dish is being served lukewarm. If you checked out our previous Dark Souls 2 stream you'll remember that Phil insi... read feature
If you've ever been to our live channel Dtoid.tv you know that Phil and I love some ridiculous Japanese games. That's part of what makes our partnership with Play-asia.com so much fun. In the past we've had fun shooting under... read
I have a shocking love for games that make me feel like I can barely keep up with them. Sadly, there haven't been a ton of games to scratch this particular itch. Enter Cloudbuilt, the neon robot ghost speed platformer. Luckil... read
If you've never heard of the game TUG I wouldn't blame you. I mean, I had only learned about it a few weeks ago. As my producer Bill Zoeker (Zoey) pitched it, "Think like Minecraft but for your weird hipster people Spencer." ... read
You ever have those games that just sneak up on you? When Witch and the Hundred Knight was announced I was all about that nonsense. Fast forward several months to now and the game is out. Boy does it look silly.
If you aren't... read
It feels really good to be back in the saddle. We missed pretty much an entire week of shows due to GDC, but we're coming back with a vengeance. If you've heard Phil or I talk about our favorite games you've undoubtedly heard... read
If you're anything like Phil or I you haven't put down Titanfall since it came out on Tuesday. It's really refreshing to jump back into a competitive multiplayer game. Now that I'm thinking about it, the last time I got into ... read
Have you guys seen Hohokum? Of course you have, it's the charming and beautiful game about everything and nothing. I realize that's not a very apt description, but there isn't really a better way to describe it. All we know i... read
I don't often recommend that you take Phil and my crazy antics and base drinking games off of them, but if you have to do it sometime: today is the day. Now, we aren't exactly bad at games -- between the two of us we can mudd... read
Here at Destructoid we're either super excited for Titanfall or we're skipping it entirely. Naturally, I'm one of the people ready to sacrifice their firstborn to get their hands on the game. So, when Twitch came to us about ... read
What's beyond the neon cloud?
I've got to say, I'm looking forward to Infamous: Second Son. Now, this might surprise you if you follow my infuriatingly titled posts. Up until last week I didn't have any interest in Second Son. Sure, it looked neat, but w... read feature
I've never been a huge fan of South Park. I mean, I appreciate its biting satire but there's just something about the show that convinced every suburban teenager to try a Cartman impression that just doesn't sit right with me... read
If you own a PlayStation 4, chances are you're pretty stoked about Infamous: Second Son. Now, if there's one thing we do here at Destructoid it's give our loyal fans what they need. So if you're preparing to cram Second ... read
Hey all, consider this a PSA: Lego Movie is good- like really really good. So, when a lovely fan gifted Phil a copy of the game on Steam (Thanks Shadowclone1000!) we were cautiously optimistic. Sure Lego games are typically c... read
It's the end of one era and the beginning of another. This week is the first in which Phil and I have taken over Dtoid.tv as full-time heads of the channel. Naturally, we're sad to see King Foom go but we're both ready to tak... read
In case you didn't catch last night's Gentlemen's Club I'll bring you up to speed: Phil and I are taking over Dtoid.tv once our beloved King Foom moves on. This means that we're going to have to restructure the entire live ch... read
Yep guys. It's time to pack in the Gentlemen's Club. It's been a hell of a ride. We started the show up almost a year and a half ago and it's easily become the highlight of my week. When Phil and I first came up with the idea... read
When Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was first announced I was seemingly the only person on the planet not won over by it's charms. Something about EA making a third person shooter out of an already delightful IP didn't si... read
I had no idea that Strider was going to be as rad as it is. Leading up to release I expected a kind of meh platformer that was all style with no substance. Well I feel foolish. The neon-soaked ninja nonsense (alliteration) is... read
If you've been following my Twitter you know I'm absolutely head over heels for Payday 2. I came in expecting a crime themed Left 4 Dead-lite but what I got was one of my favorite co-op games. There' s something about plannin... read
