Oh, would you look at the date! The developers of Friday the 13th: The Game know the score. On this beautiful and not at all cursed Friday, they've kindly given us an in-engine look at one of the variant costumes for Jason Vo...   read

Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...

Anamanaguchi's new music lies hidden within Capsule Silence XXIV

In case you missed it, Anamanaguchi's game Capsule Silence XXIV was “leaked” by the band a few days ago after what appeared to be a heated dispute with developer NHX. The game at first seems to be a woefully underdeveloped mess ...

Pin back your lugholes, here's the Quantum Break soundtrack

Microsoft has released the Quantum Break soundtrack for free on Soundcloud, and it’s surprisingly great. Big budget games have a habit of thinking big games should have big scores with lots of instruments, but then fail to give them t...

Supergiant releases stylish Transistor vinyl and updates digital OST

The soundtrack for Transistor contains some of the coolest, chillest, sit-in-a-dark-room-and-vibe tracks I've ever heard from a video game. So while I normally don't think much of premium vinyl editions, I'm pretty curious about this one. S...

Watching a full Swedish orchestra do a Mega Man medley is pretty wild

Watching people in their 50s (or older), who have potentially never played Mega Man, flawlessly perform the Spark Man theme is a pretty amazing sight. But that's just what the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra did, and you can witness i...

Listen to Dale North sing Final Fantasy VIII's 'Eyes on Me'

Not long ago we saw the Materia Collective remix Final Fantasy VII's soundtrack, and it was pretty dang good. Longtime Destructoid fans probably swooned at former Editor-in-Chief Dale North's rendition of the Main Theme. Now the group is ba...

PUP's new music video makes good use of classic games

Earlier today, Darren passed along this music video for Torontonian punk band PUP's song "DVP" as a thing we might be interested in covering, and he made the right call. Always bet on Darren. The video, directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, is...

Somehow DJ Khaled fits perfectly in The Witness

I've been playing through Jonathan Blow and gang's The Witness of which I have very mixed feelings -- unlike Brett who gave the game a perfect score in his review -- but that hasn't stopped me from falling in love with this amazi...

Attention, Pokemon hipsters: The Red/Blue soundtrack is on vinyl now

Let's remember Castlevania with this awesome dad-ass vampire guitarist

Amazed some people were apparently touched, blown away by dat GoT ending. The whole scene has a level of cheesiness and incoherence unprecedented for the series.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Beat the Leviathan with pistols. Roxxis Rubi to keep me alive, that Thief gun Scarlett drops to kill it. That aside, the idea of Marcus raising a child bothers me.

 
JcDent

40K Knight banners, because if youre dropping $140 on a plastic giant mecha, you want it to be as chivalrous as possible. Knight Paladin still the best, yo.

 
ChrisHannard

I cant understand all the love this is suddenly getting. I mean, its good, but why has it suddenly become of such interest to video gamers?

 
ragm54

Ive been reading you guys with Overwatch Overwatch Overwatch. Meanwhile Im reminded that my potato couldnt even run it at 4FPS, and I refuse to play it on PS4 (TF2 has destroyed my will to play FPS on gonna go play Valkyria Chronicles.

 
JcDent

In a move not expected by anyone, the Heralds of Ruin Kill Team Rules (The Good Warhammer 40K Kill Team Rules) have been updated. While Im not too hype about Eldar near-D shenanigans and Rogue Trader Ork weapons, the Grot Rebel list seems to be blast!

 
Fuzunga

I might actually get Overwatch in the near future if I can play it with you guys. Ive never had a group to play with before.

 
Shinta

Finally got around to starting Pocket Jockey. What a delightful little game. I absolutely adore the dialogue and the main character. The gameplay is really fun too. Fun fact, CJ is quoted on the eshop in the sales banner for the game right now.

 
ZombZ

The next person to ask me to hold the door today is getting kicked in the balls. While Im sobbing of course. Seriously fuck my coworkers.

 
nickcburgess

Is it acceptable to rant here? Even if its not about games? Cause Im sick of my female facebook friends linking to their odyssey online articles they wrote. Youre 19 and a freshman in college. You dont have all the answers. Sorry this isnt video gamey

 
Gamemaniac3434

And thats REmake finished and done-really good game, had a great time with it. Finally digging into the backlog and clearing it out a bit.

 
Samsneeze

So I watched Millennium Actress again today and I dont know why I insist on watching movies that make me feel terrible things after theyre done. I still wholly recommend it if you havent seen it before. Its fantastic.

 
Torchman

Im not sure how I feel about dividing my most recent WIP blog into parts, but its probably for the better. It was already larger than any other blog I had written with just 25% done.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Man, sockpuppet accounts representing gamers are still in vogue. Sad they dont know it takes longer to create them than to ban/delete them.

 
Lex

Browsing through Doom Mods you can find pretty much everything ... but the lack of Warhammer 40k themed mods is kinda disturbing ... and sad.

 
Nekrosys

God dammit. Day-1 patches are so inconvenient.

 
Torchman

Hey Torch, whats writing your recent blog like 30% writing, 70% making gifs

 
WryGuy

Vita vs PSP. Go. Nonono. Not the PSP Go. Just go.

 
Gamemaniac3434

Hey, just a streamin thing. free to join me for some REmake, ask me some questions about Microbiology and whatnot if you are interested.

 
Nekrosys

Well, I caved in and grabbed a copy of Overwatch (PS4).

 
Steven Hansen

what you wanna see video-wise out e3? conference recaps round tables? video previews to go w/ written? just off-screen footage for extended look at gameplay of new games that prob only got brief trailers? purely weird shit like that Great America video?

 
Osc

Watching Monday Night RAW and a DOOM commercial pops up. Bloody Awesome - Destructoid. Being quoted from a 2014 post. You guys made it, now.

 
Vadicta

So, if Microsoft already has a console not doing so well, is it really wise to release an upgraded version and segment their already not-great market share? Like if the NX was a more powerful Wii U instead of a new system, would anyone care or want it?

 
Dreamweaver

Because only poor people have to choose. :P Nah, for real though, even though I bought Battleborn to tide me over until Overwatch came out, I think its a lot of fun for MOBA players. I can see myself trying to play both games for the foreseeable future.

 
TheBlondeBass

Im so sorry GM, I should have been a better trainer for you... I mean, you had shitty moves and stats, but maybe if we got to talk to each other, understand each other, things wouldnt have come to this...

 
Chris Bradshaw

Hey heres a random thought, remember Nintendo TVii? Me neither.

 
Jinx 01

When people complain that Gotham doesnt fit the Batman continuity I have to ask... which continuity? I mean, how many goddamn versions of the Batman continuity are there? At least Gotham is trying something different (and doing it quite well imo).

 
Chris Seto

shameless plug! Anyone interested in Koihime Enbu on PC, a friend is running a double elimination tournament on Wed at 6pm GMT. Its an open competition so if you want to join, just sign up!

Meanwhile, Bo watches me kill a bunch of shit, and hes all Good going, man. And when I say Yeah! in return, hes all, Revel in it. You earned it, brotha. Best husbandu confirmed.
