Reviews of the week! photo
Review Round-up: Week ending 12/14
On the second week of December Destructoid's reviews brought me, one sweet RPG called Ys. Okay, that's about as far as I'm going with turning this weeks review round-up into some sort of Christmas jingle. But feel free to kee... read feature


Games of the Week: B-52's edition

Jan 30
This is the most terrifying dream I think you can ever have. And I actually like the B-52s.  As with every week, the staff at Destructoid has played a few videogames. We like to put together this little thing where we talk about the games we played in the previous week and solicit responses from the community. So, without further ado, here's what we've been up to. read

Games of the Week for 1/23/2011: The dream of the 90s

Jan 23
IFC debuted Portlandia this weekend. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet but as a newcomer to the city they're poking fun at, it's pretty evident that there's something weird going on here. Up above is a delightf... read

Games of the Week for 12/26/2010: Leftovers

Dec 26
It is late. I am full of second-run turkey and ginger ale. The fireplace behind me is crackling out its last and the snow is piling up outside. Good thing there's plenty of warm game systems to keep us all toasty this holiday... read

Games of the Week for 12/12/2010: Crazed

Dec 13
There's no reason for the above image other than my own personal amusement. Carry on. Destructoid played games during the last 7 Earth-standard days. You would refer to this specific quantity of time as a "week" and we do the... read

Games of the Week for 12/5/2010: Riding elephants edition

Dec 05
Mind not that there exists such a thing as a "behind-the-scenes" interview for a commercial. If that has to be a thing, let them all have Conan O'Brien in them. We played games at Destructoid during the last week and we're itching to tell you all about it. Keep reading and you'll find out what the best console audio visualizer is. The answer may surprise you. read

Games of the Week for 11/28/2010: Doing it as a goof

Nov 28
Clearly, you're just not understanding my sense of humor. I goof a lot. The Destructoid staff does not goof. They're intensely serious people who do nothing but play videogames all week long, diodes strapped to their heads while the news is written to the page via a neural induction link. We're from the future, playing your games in the past. Read on to find out what we were up to this week. read

Games of the Week for 11/21/2010: Spanish voting edition

Nov 21
[The above video is about as safe for work as When Harry Met Sally] Apparently, Spain is about to have elections. I know this because the Socialist Catalonian Party has made an advertisement in which a woman voting has an or... read

Games of the Week for 11/14/2010: Not funny edition

Nov 14
Poor, poor Bill Murray. It was so hard on him in the early days. I can totally relate. I am far, far more funny in real life than I am on this blog. Yes, sir, I'm a veritable fount of comedy gold in person but I just can't s... read

Games of the Week for 11/7/2010

Games of the Week for 10/4/2010: Zombie edition

Oct 04
I get the feeling that it's going to be a slow news night. That's okay. I have 72,000 zombies that aren't going to kill themselves. The Destructoid staff spend a little time each week playing videogames. And, once a week, we talk about the videogames we played during that time. It's a complicated process, but if you read along I'm sure you'll come to grok it in due time. read

Games of the Week for 9/26/2010: Late(ly) edition

Sep 27
It's seemingly impossible to find a version of Carol King's "It's Too Late" in a 16:9 ratio. Someone should get on that. It's so rare that I get to say Stevie Wonder is my second choice in anything, but here it is. Destructoid played games this week. Lots of them. So many, that I simply couldn't get this to you on schedule. Read on to find out what they were and how we felt about them. read

Games of the Week for 9/19/2010: Todd Margaret Edition

Sep 19
It amazes me that there are programming directors out there who would greenlight a series starring David Cross. That takes balls that clang. And, yet, here we are. The Destructoid editors played videogames this week. I bet you did also. We've written out the games we played in a list with our tappy-tappy boards and published it below. You should do the same. read

Games of the Week for 8/1/10: Lawn Jockey edition

Aug 01
I am not Jim Sterling. Depending on your perspective, this could be a great or terrible thing. Jim's plate is pretty full these days, so I will be taking over the posting duties for our weekly celebration of the games we played the week before.  Let us begin as all things should begin: With a murderous lawn jockey. Hop along past the jump for everything we did last week. read

Games of the week for 07/25/10: Scatman edition

Games of the week for 07/04/10: American justice edition

Jul 04
It's July 4, the day we celebrate America doing some stuff to some people a number of years ago because of reasons.

Games of the week for E3 2010: Everyone's tired edition

Jun 20
As you likely know, Jim usually does this. But he's wiped from E3. Everyone is, actually. No one's in a mood or anything, and we feel pretty good about our coverage, but today is definitely a down day. We need a down day, com... read

Games of the week for 06/06/10: Z-List celebrity edition

Jun 06

Games of the week for 05/16/10: Transformers edition

May 16
Those who know me will know that my non-videogame obsessions tend to fluctuate wildly between Aliens and Transformers, and the obsession is usually kicked into high gear when a videogame is on the horizon. With War for Cyber... read

Games of the week for 05/09/10: There is no God edition

May 09
I've come to realize that this section has had a distinct lack of Mitchell & Webb. Luckily, this is soon to be rectified. This week's not-game-related video presents proof that there is no God. Enjoy that, why don't you?... read

Games of the week for 05/02/10: Bangers & Mash edition

They never mean to do no harm, but you can guarantee, they'll upset the apple cart, though accidentally, Mash and Bangers' clangers come about quite frequently... Hit the jump for our games of the week. read

Games of the week for 04/25/10: Riverleap edition

Apr 25
I have been obsessed with Riverleap. The game was free on iTunes this weekend, and it is amazing. It's not actually very good, considering the graphics are weird and confusing, the gameplay is based on pure luck and death co... read

Apr 11
Comedian, handsome boy and friend of Destructoid Ray Peacock recently did a lovely bit of comedy for Russel Howard's Good News, which is a telly show on the telly. He was very funny and made me do laughing out of the toothed... read

Games of the week for 04/04/10: MAH BOI edition

Apr 04
Old meme is old, I know. Couldn't resist busting out a classic though. Immature, stupid videos like this make me laugh, and I don't really care whether you find them funny either. At least I'm not putting up some mawkish Eas... read
