Whoa
Jan 23

If you're going to validate your cult pop culture bona fides, this is how you do it. A new trailer for Necrophone Games' Jazzpunk has been released by Adult Swim, referencing the 1995 motion picture Johnny Mnemonic...

The new crop of open-world titles, like Day Z, give interesting insight into the people who play games. Take this roving gang of players as an example, who have encountered two people wearing the same color jacket and determ...

Stick it to The Man!

Stick it to The Man! is just as delectably nuts on PC


Currently 40% off till December 20 on Steam

I think it's pretty safe to say that Stick it to The Man! was easily underneath everyone's radar when it landed on PlayStation 3 and Vita last month. The game garnered one of our highest reviews of the year, thanks to it's hi...

LEGO The Last of Us should be a real thing


Until that day, this interpretation will have to do
Dec 12
// Conrad Zimmerman
This video brightened my day in a huge way. It's an animator's idea of what The Last of Us franchise would look like if taken on by the Traveler's Tales team of LEGO game designers. It is now my new go-to argument in favor of the assertion that any idea, however grim, can be made funny with the proper application of Danish construction blocks.

Grand Theft Auto V's Trevor tries to ditch a body in skit

I am not a big fan of Nathan Barnatt. More specifically, I find the character he portrays at gaming events (Keith Apicary, a self-unaware trainwreck of socially inappropriate behavior paired with a nasty vocal defect) to be ...

Doom was an immensely popular and genre-defining game back when it was released in 1993. It paved the way for many titles that followed and is still seen as one of the purest forms of first-person shooter gameplay. But thing...

Zynga's been a hot topic in the news lately, but this gaffe is quite a bit more lighthearted than the Mattrick saga. It's also pretty embarrassing. As reported by Kotaku, Zynga accidentally put a random person in charge of cu...

Terrible Truths photo
No fate
I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out. If memory serves, I used the opportunity to take a much needed trip to the bathroom because I was certain there would be nothing there to hold my interest.  I was wrong. Hopefully, it's not too late for us.

The Ballad of Sexy Layton (and Sexy Luke)


Such a sad song, such a happy man
Mar 28
// Jonathan Holmes
There isn't much to say about this that isn't better expressed through song, but there is one interesting piece of trivia to share. Sexy Luke is played by Capcom Fan Art legend and former Boondocks artist [name withheld per request]. That's pretty awesome. Other than that, I don't have much to say. Just watch the video.

Dig Dug parody video takes Ke$ha to the arcade


Courtesy of our own Ian Bonds!
Feb 09
// Conrad Zimmerman
Destructoid contributor Ian Bonds was seemingly too humble to post this video. Either that, or he doesn't really love us as much as I thought, because this music video created to accompany his parody of Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" is the kind of thing you really ought to be showing the people you claim to care about.
