It's been infinitely interesting to take part in the industry-wide discussion about BioShock Infinite. Many in the gaming press LOVE the game, many developers are REVOLTED by it, and many gaming consumers say it's "...

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)

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.

Teenage Pokemon: The first episode

Like Malcom in the Middle, but with swears and Wartortles
Dec 15
// Jonathan Holmes
[Teenage Pokemon is a cartoon show about Pokemon in their second stage of evolution. Expect some parody/tribute to videogame culture, industry, players, and events.] I just realized that the first episode of The Simpsons was...

The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles is out now on Windows 8

It looks absolutely ridiculous

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...

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 A...

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

Apr 19
// Daniel Starkey
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...

Juliet cleans off zombie bits in Lollipop Chainsaw video

Zombies are messy. Like, really messy. Their fragile bodies are falling apart and full of blood, so I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Juliet gets covered in zombie bits after a day of slaying them with her chainsaw. She ...

Dorkly does Limbo

Feb 27
// Victoria Medina
Limbo is one of those games that works well because of its atmosphere. When you take that element away, like Dorkly did, you end up with something silly, and maybe a little bit scary, like the above video. Just be warned, once you've seen this video you can never unsee it. Lollipop Spiders. That's all I've got to say. Limbo with a flashlight [Dorkly]

Machinima teases (fake) Angry Birds movie trailer

Dec 07
// Victoria Medina
All I want for Christmas is for this Machinima trailer to be for a real movie. Sadly it isn't, which I think is a shame. Don't worry though, there is an Angry Birds movie in the works. It just isn't an homage to Snatch (the movie, you perverts). Seriously though, this is an amazing idea, and while I have less than no desire to see the real Angry Birds movie, I would go watch this movie. Twice.

What I learned playing Self Defense Training Camp

Nov 20
// Conrad Zimmerman
I've been playing a ton of Kinect games for review lately, and one of these is Ubisoft's Self Defense Training Camp. The game aims to teach you a variety of techniques that you can employ to get yourself out of a dangerous situation. I found the whole experience to be thoroughly enlightening and wanted to put together a video which showcased how there's a way to escape absolutely any problem.

Someone put me in the best video ever made

Grand Theft Auto V: Only For Kinect

Nov 03
// Max Scoville
If you missed yesterday's Destructoid Show, we did a nice little recut of the Grand Theft Auto V trailer that went live yesterday. Most people seem to get a kick out of it, but some others are posting outraged YouTube comments because they think it's real. Oh, internet. You so stupid.
