100,000 videos generated
I'm generally not a fan of lip-sync videos, but it looks like Activision managed to round up quite a few people into their newest scheme for Guitar Hero Live. The gist is that people are tasked with creating a video for Ed Sh...
Walk back, but not too far
Comments made last week by a page administrator on the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Facebook went beyond confirming the game wouldn't come west. Replying to a different inquiry on the subject, a representative wrote, "Do you know m...
From composer Norihiko Hibino
[Disclosure: Scarlet Moon Productions' Jayson Napolitano used to write for Destructoid.]
Secret of Mana is one of those games that really means a lot to me. It wasn't just because I had so much fun with the co-op fu...
Rubble Without a Cause
It's been a long time coming since the first episode of King's Quest, which turned out better than many expected. Five months is a long time between episodes, especially when competitors like Telltale are generally maintain a...
Although we already got a look at the English version of The Snack World earlier this year, it's getting ready to actually come to fruition soon. Snack is the latest "cross-media" project from the publish...
Revealed on December 10
Pokken Tournament currently hosts 11 characters (counting Pikachu Libre and Shadow Mewtwo), and it looks like one more will be revealed on December 10, as per the official Twitter account.
I'd wager that the new character wou...
Neither seem concerned by low sales
While official sales data for Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One is still not publicly available, numbers being unofficially thrown around for the timed exclusive have suggested that it's currently selling incredibly poorly....
Please be a new game
Capcom has apparently registered the Onimusha trademark in Japan for re-use. While this may seem like nothing, Capcom noted recently it's putting a lot of eggs into the remaster basket, and this seems like an obvious can...

You're not alone :(
According to reports on reddit, some players are experiencing significant issues with newly launched Just Cause 3.
As reported by VG247, some framerate and performance issues can be resolved on PC by way of a graphi...
With a release of Q2 2016?
We still don’t really know anything about Nintendo’s next console, the NX. It might be a handheld/console hybrid, but until Nintendo formally unveils it, it could be anything. However, if rumours published by Digi...
That's a lot of monsters being hunted
Japan likes Monster Hunter. It likes Monster Hunter a lot. The series sometimes doesn’t get the love it deserves in the West, but in Japan it’s a bona fide gaming phenomenon.
Japan likes Monster Hunter so much that Monster Hunter X, which only came out a few days ago, has already outsold last year’s Monster Hunter 4G on the Nintendo eShop.
Get outta my dreams
The latest Kickstarter update for Heart Forth, Alicia is a lot to get through.
There's been a delay -- from Q1 2016 to the second half of the year -- but rather than just give a basic explanation for the change of plans, the ...
Mutants in Manhattan
Australia's classification board has a listing for a multiplatform game called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan and, hot damn, it's developed by Platinum Games.
Question is, will its scope fall more in line ...
The best Spider-Man game yet
While driving down the New Jersey parkway for Thanksgiving, I began to notice a lot of water and radio towers perched high above the trees. "Wow, I could easily blow them up or tether them to the ground and bring them down," ...
Spartan but servicable
We stretched our robot eyes as far as the nanolayer allowed, but there just weren't as many Nintendo Cyber Monday deals this year compared to years past. (Or maybe they've always been a slight letdown.)
On the Wii U side, the...
The first wave of free Star Wars Battlefront DLC debuts tomorrow for players who pre-ordered the game, while everyone else can get it a week later on December 8.
As we've heard a few times now, the Battle of Jakku is made up ...
Like there's a choice
I love the forced extremes of the Splatoon Splatfests -- it's one or the other. In this case, it's a no-brainer choosing pizza over hamburgers. I mean, what culture doesn't love pizza? It utterly surprised me during my first ...
Eric Powell, call me, yeah?!
I’m not a fan of “The Capes” when it comes to comic books, but I understand why they’re such an easy fit for video games. Superheroes are proactive investigators and brawlers with adventures based sole...
Dancing in the moonlight
SCE Santa Monica Studio has contributed to a varied bunch of games, including multiple God of War titles, Hohokum, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Journey. What's next? Whatever the ...
Oh, what could they be?
WB Montreal, the developer most well-known for 2013's Batman: Arkham Origins, looks like it's again focusing on comics for its second big project. And its third too, actually. A call for a fair number of new employees outed t...
Trademark and domain found
Katamari Damacy has such a strong hook and delightfully offbeat vibe, it's hard to imagine I'll ever grow tired of the series. It's been a few years, now. We're due for another installment. If a recent trademark and domain ar...
Check out the winners of round two
This month for the second Dtoid Designs contest, I challenged you to use Super Mario Maker to create the Un-Mario level. How exactly does one create a level that doesn't play like it comes from a Super Mario game using only S...
Well eight-elevenths of it
The Konami Code has had a ton of in-game applications, but today it can save you some actual real-life money. Amazon has centered its Cyber Monday video game deals around the legendary cheat, making it instantly good for 15 p...
Going into a store is so 1999
If you're curious what Microsoft Store is offering up for Cyber Monday, prepare to be un-surprised -- the deals are essentially the same as they were on Black Friday. If you were too busy or overwhelmed at the time, you might...
Canned in 2008
Eight Days was a pretty ambitious project. So ambitious that Sony canceled it in 2008 after debuting it in 2006. The gist was that it was going to be the biggest open world game of that era, set across eight different US...
At the request of Harada
It's still unknown whether or not the Wii U's Lost Reavers will sport a fair free-to-play scheme, but for now, it's looking interesting enough for me to keep following it. Speaking to Famitsu, producer Katsuhiro Harada (...
Also, a new trailer
It's hard to believe that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 isn't out yet -- I could have sworn it was set to come out months ago. It's actually going to arrive in February worldwide following a delay, and for no...
Fingering has never been so fun
I've been playing rhythm games since they exploded onto the scene with PaRappa the Rapper in 1997, and having nearly played at least one title of every rhythm game series released I can easily say Superbeat: Xonic is top tier.
But be forewarned, this is the Dark Souls...nay...the 127 Hours of music games, only you get to keep your arms attached.
