Animals


Pid was one of the most charming games I played in 2012, so it's no surprise that developer Might and Delight's next project, Shelter, focuses on the most mighty and delightful creature in the animal kingdom: the crazy nasty...


Last year, fans of I-Mockery's irreverent brand of pop culture humor were treated to Abobo's Big Adventure, a mashup of all things NES starring the muscle-bound Double Dragon boss Abobo. As hilarious as Abobo's Big Adventure ...


Remember High Voltage Software's Animales de la Muerte? Originally one of the most promising-sounding titles for the then-new WiiWare service, it stewed in limbo for a few years before dropping WiiWare and becoming an XBLA /...


Bandai has announced plans to resurrect Tamagotchi on iOS and Android devices. While the handheld digital pet never truly went away, its star certainly has faded since the late nineties. Perhaps the popular egg-shap...


Sly Cooper is in for his biggest adventure yet as he travels through the ages in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. The new launch trailer gives you a decent look at what to expect from the franchise's decidedly Saturday morning c...


Don't let anyone say that Gabe Newell isn't a man of the people. After speaking to students at The University of Texas at Austin, which is where his quote about Apple being competition for the PC industry in the living room ...


So, like, this is nothing new. We briefly brought up Japan World Cup, a weird-ass horse race-betting DVD game, a couple years back. You might not have heard of it. Or, if you are like me, you completely forgot that this is a thing that exists. Consider this a refresher course in "Japan is f*ckin' nuts" 101. [Vinesauce] Studyguy - Japonies 2013 [YouTube]


Edmund McMillen of Team Meat has just announced that he and Tommy Refenes are hard at work on their follow-up to Super Meat Boy. It's about cats. Mew-Genics was conceived during a game jam session, but the duo felt it had pot...


Indie developer Nitrome, known for its disgustingly massive selection of free web games, is prepping its first major commercial release, Flightless. It's a fairly basic puzzle-platformer starring a thieving duck who has had ...


As announced on the PlayStation Blog, Tokyo Jungle will be getting four additional playable animals today, and I think there's something here for everyone. Available for download at $0.99 each or bundled together for $2.49 ar...


I know! But before you get your hopes up, let's go through this one step at a time. Game designer Ed Annunziata, the creator of Ecco the Dolphin, tweeted this last week: "Ecco fans, I need you to follow & tweethank @scott...


Sometimes it's hard to remember that Conker was not always the foul-mouthed drunkard we all know and love. He was supposed to be another kid-friendly mascot in Rare's software stable. He even managed to squeeze out a forgett...


We're not sure what took so long for Tokyo Jungle to be localized (we first played it at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show), but it's finally here and it's every bit as silly and hilarious as we had hoped it would be.   This acti...


"Fearmaster controller? What the hell is that?" I found out, and promptly had to write a post about it. The Top Shot Fearmaster is a gun peripheral for Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013, otherwise known as the series with some of...


Hey guys, guess what? There's turtles in Far Cry 3. I know what you're thinking, you're like "Whoa, turtles?" and I'm like, "Yeah dude, I know!" I got to talk to Jamie Keen, the lead designer, at PAX this weekend. I aske...


Tokyo Jungle, the demented "animal survival" game about a Tokyo chock-full of lions and bears, is destined to hit North America on September 25. What's more, the crazy game is going to be available for the rather pleasant pri...


[Header by Ashley Davis] Every other videogame franchise seems to be celebrating a major anniversary lately. However, there's one little series that seems to have slipped everyone's mind. Everyone except Dtoider TheManchild, ...


Without a doubt, Renegade Kid totally killed it with Mutant Mudds earlier this year. With a simple, no-frills structure that struck a major chord with players, the eShop platformer was a sweet dose of purity in a genre that's...


Remember when I told you that Bomb Monkey would be out "hopefully in Q2 2012"? Well it looks like there's nothing to worry about, as the game will finally be gracing the eShop next Thursday, June 28th, for $4.99 (nice!). For...


Bomb Monkey, Renegade Kid's follow-up to the stellar Mutant Mudds, has been shrouded in secrecy since its original announcement. So shrouded, in fact, that Jonathan Holmes was forced on pain of DEATH to not film any gameplay...


Oh my darlings, here's today's Destructoid Show. Tara's still gone, because she's getting stung/bitten by bees/dogs, but Anthony's here to fill in. Anthony and I have fun. Today's news: Playdead's working on a follow-up to L...


To all would-be parents, how prepared are you for the big day? You could probably stand to brush up on some important child-raising skills. For instance, how far can you toss a baby? You'll never know when you'll need to chuc...


The PlayStation 3 game in which a humorously diverse population of animals has taken over a human-less Tokyo just got slightly more absurd. It's not enough that there are Pomeranians fighting lions in Tokyo Jungle; no, we nee...


I'm hoping by now, you guys have all read Conrad Zimmerman's great writeup about Assassin's Creed III, and how it looks awesome and how there is snow. Now, here's an interview I did with Ubisoft Montreal's Alex Hutchinson. He was nice enough to answer some questions about the game's setting, the multiplayer, and most importantly, what kind of animals are in the game and can I eat them.


After being pestered for a bit, Renegade Kid recently confirmed on their Twitter that their eShop latest, Bomb Monkey, will be headed for the 3DS marketplace in "Q2, hopefully". While it isn't a hard release date, most of us ...


Score one for Mutant Mudds! Renegade Kid's basic yet unbelievably enjoyable platformer for the 3DS has been kicking ass in a big way. In addition to the widespread critical acclaim, the game has been receiving plenty of expos...


They would do such a thing, wouldn't they? Yes, it's true -- Nintendo of America now has a spokesdog for February, which is Responsible Pet Owners Month. He's a Jack Russell terrier named Uggie who has also appeared in TV com...


Do you guys remember playing Depict1 on Newgrounds? It was a puzzle platformer that fed you inaccurate instructions, so you had to ignore those directions in order to clear the game. It was made by indie developer Kyle Pulve...


It's seriously the most random thing ever. This installment of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? premiered during MAGFest, but I didn't bother to check for any new show uploads on GameTrailers until just a few hours ago. I hope you ...


Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw, the Escapist's bitter game critic who totally is Jim Sterling's brother / possible doppelgänger, has been known to make videogames from time to time. He's been toiling away in Game Maker for a whi...


Good news and bad news time! Bad news: this is not about SQUIDbear. Good news: no "arrow to the knee" bullsh*t. Enjoy the harrowing tale of... a bear. Skyrim : Bear [YouTube] (Very nice job, Joe!)


Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, the creator of everyone's favorite freeware-turned-paid-game Cave Story, has just released his first title on the App Store. Azarashi, an updated version of a quickie time-waster he made over a decade a...


Gaming animals are rare, so we should treasure them. Especially on slow news days.  "Cat playing Fruit Ninja" is Mack1094's first YouTube video, and it's already nearing 49,000 views. His adorable kitty is a pro at Frui...


In case you guys missed yesterday's Destructoid Show, we had some big news. On their first ever Skyrim-centric episode of the official Bethesda podcast, a couple of the artists discussed Squidbear. I guess the mora...


Growing up playing side-scrolling action games like Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Another World has cemented my love of the genre, so any time I get the chance to play another title in that vein, I jump at the chance. Enter Roc...


So. Nyan Cat. There is very little left to be said about Nyan Cat, except that it's my profound disappointment to inform you that Konami did not, in fact, release a licensed Nyan game in 1988. Not only would Nyan Cat vs. Tac ...


There's a new Champion Jockey game coming from Tecmo Koei. It will be out for the Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and all three versions will make use of the motion controls offered by each console. As you can see in the vid...


A lot of times, girls don't have the opportunity to buy licensed t-shirts in their own sizes, having to make do with guys' sizes. Luckily for them, this Techno Kitten Adventure shirt is available only in girls' sizes. You can...


A week before E3, I posted a predictions post that featured the adorable (and adoptable!) animals of the Burbank Animal Shelter making predictions about what they thought would happen at this year’s mammoth industry eve...


Last night at the 20th anniversary Sonic party (an event that was as amazing as it was completely, wonderfully surreal), the SEGA reps were handing out big, blue Sonic the Hedgehog hats. This morning, I decided to put one on my dog Luna. She was so annoyed ... but so adorable. This is the most important E3 article I have ever written.
