Gamer's Rhapsody

Gamer's Rhapsody will gather music and games on November 15-16


Minnesota in the middle of November? Cool
Oct 29
I have previously expressed that we, the Destructoid community, need to find a new meetup to replace PAX, since PAX is too big to handle now. Maybe Gamer's Rhapsody can be a contender. Probably not for this year, but maybe in... read
Hands-on at Paris Games Week and also a new trailer
Look, you can't blame me for turning a blind eye to Final Fantasy Type-0. Why hurt and labor and want over something you can't have? At least not a videogame, of which there are alternates and substitutes plenty. Elliot Gay k... read feature

Dragon Con cosplay

Here's our Dragon Con 2014 cosplay gallery


Those shades
Sep 06
I doubt I'll ever attend Dragon Con, what with my inability to be in two places at once and PAX falling on the same weekend, but the cosplay photos and videos are always a treat. We were on the scene for another photo round-up. My favorites are Elsa with a lightsaber, the Bob's Burgers family, Dale & Tucker vs. Evil, blue Link, disco-ball Samus, and of course Groot. read
