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
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
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
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
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
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
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

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
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
And people say that American Football has some ridiculous victory dances.
Time once again for the Destructoid staff to run down the list of games they played over the last week. Can you guess all of the games we played before we have time to tell you what they were? See how many you can come up with and then read on. read
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
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
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
Sometimes you just need a platitude to get you through the day.

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
Our very own Joseph Leray reminded me of Scatman today. Now you all get to watch Scatman and be reminded of him as well. My God the Nineties was an age of kings. An age, my friends, of kings!
In other news, games were played this week. Hit the jump to find out which ones. read
I've been on a real Rik & Ade kick lately, rewatching episodes of Filthy, Rich & Catflap and Bottom. This is a clip from the last episode of Bottom in which Richie and Eddie film a viciously hilarious accident to try... read
It's July 4, the day we celebrate America doing some stuff to some people a number of years ago because of reasons. In honor of this great day, what could be more Patriotic than a classic scene from Metal Wolf Chaos? Richard Hawk is the most American man that ever did America. Long live the USA!
Also, videogames. If you're bored of watching fireworks, why not read our stupid words? read
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
I have officially obtained the rank of "minor Z-list celebrity that nobody cares about", making this the most important day of everybody's lives. Basically, I was on the BBC's World Service station this morning talking about ... read
Anybody who follows me on Twitter or Facebook will know that I have become obsessed with Tim Minchin lately. The singer/songwriter/skeptic/handsome bastard is a genius and well worth watching. The above video is "The G... read
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
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
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
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
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
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
Time for some shameless self promotion! In case you haven't heard, I'm a regular on a new podcast that discusses all things Sega. It's called Sega Addicts. That's a nice name. It also features Topher Cantler who you might re... read
