Sifl and Olly return again, this time on Nerdist

Silf and Olly was one of my favorite MTV shows of the 90's. I felt sad and somewhat guilty when the show it canceled in favor of more marketable but ultimately less interesting fare like Road Rules. The show was recently reb...

The Ballad of Sexy Layton (and Sexy Luke)

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

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.

Teenage Pokemon: The first episode

The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles is out now on Windows 8

You guys remember FMV games, right? Well, even I remember them, and I'm the resident baby here at Destructoid. FMVs were interactive movies that, you guessed it, used full-motion videos. Think Dragon's Lair but with real act...

Mists of Pandaria cinematic is the absolute greatest

I make no attempts to hide my infatuation with pandas. I also don't shy away from stating that I'm not a big fan of World of Warcraft. However, Blizzard knows how to get anyone excited for their games with the always stellar...

The Merc with a Mouth gets his own game, first trailer photo
The Merc with a Mouth gets his own game, first trailer
by Brett Zeidler

Well, it's finally happening, guys. Deadpool will star in his very own videogame, called Deadpool: The Game. High Moon Studios (the team behind Transformers: Fall of Cybertron) will be handling the development duties, with Activision set to publish the game.

Nolan North will voice Deadpool, which is an appropriate choice because he's done the voice for Deadpool in all his appearances ever since Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. It just seems a bit strange because he's doing his normal Nathan Drake-esque voice when he talks. Still sounds great all the same, though.

Now, the trailer itself was absolutely perfect. High Moon definitely nailed the humor and fourth wall breaking that Deadpool is known for. The trailer alone was full of so many unforgettable quotes. My personal favorite has to be, "Now let's be honest, I'm not the only one with a little bit of sh*t in their pants right now, am I?" No Deadpool, you're not.

So, we know they've got the character down, now it's just a matter of if the gameplay will be any good. From what I could tell of the small bits in the trailer (which shows Deadpool riding and punching a guy in the face while they fly towards Earth, among much more), it's looking like the whole game is shaping up quite nicely. What do you guys think?

Don't be ridiculous: Perfect Strangers gets a fan game

A lot of people are saying that gaming needs to "grow up". Jade Raymond said it. Some guy who wrote an article for a videogame blog said it. A taco meat-colored guy who shops at my local Gamestop said it. Everyone is saying i...

Behind the hats, Team Fortress 2's short, funny story

Did you know that Team Fortress 2 had a backstory? Me neither. Apparently Valve's been fleshing out via comics since 2010. It's oddly interesting, and brings order to one of the most chaotic kill-a-thons in modern gaming.  Still wondering what all this hat business is about...
