It's almost Thanksgiving, so that means I have to get the Christmas Tree down from the attic. Normally I make Mrs. Lucha help, but she's busy so it's up to me to get this task done. Ever see someone stream getting a Christmas Tree out of an attic and then put it up? Well guess what, you get to see it here on Rad Show. read
Lauren Faust is a powerful person. She helped take a relatively unremarkable children's show aimed at pre-teen girls and transform it into a multi-media, multi-generation, multi-billion-dollar sensation. She also apparently h... read

There exists a five-book My Little Pony / Fallout crossover series entitled Fallout: Equestria. Written entirely by fans for fans, it takes two absolute extremes and mashes them together in a 2000+ page, 620,000+ word labor o... read
Rhythm Heaven Fever is my favorite game of 2012. I love Fez and Retro City Rampage and Fatal Frame 2 and many, many other games that were released this year, but none of them have made a permanent change to my dail... read
Oooooh, you guys f*cked up! Thanks to your overwhelming responses in the past, I know that I can score about a billion views and 100+ comments simply by posting anything My Little Pony-related. Thanks for making my job super... read
With TGS nearly upon us, news this week has been rather slow; I'm sure you've noticed. As such, I'm going to call it right now: Derek Yu's comic about Spelunky Man and Meat Boy is the best thing that's going to happen today.
At this point, I ought to just have a percentage of my paychecks go straight to Terry Cavanagh. Everything he does I seem to either enjoy, or at the very least, find interesting.
Arguably his best game, VVVVVV, is now on Stea... read
By the time I realized Capcom was offering those ever-delightful Servbots in Bobble Budd form during this year's Comic-Con, it was already too late. I'm fairly certain I even cursed the name of Giant Bomb's own Ryan Davis for... read
2D, sprite-based platformers seem to be the go-to genre for many independent developers. If you aren't the kind of person who grew up on 8- or 16-bit titles, this can be a hard sell. Dooder by Matthew Thomas Seely certainly ... read
The popular 90s trivia game series You Don't Know Jack, as revealed on the Giant Bombcast, is being brought back into the fray by Jellyvision and THQ. On the game's official website, Jellyvision lovingly says "We told you so.... read

General manager of Xbox LIVE Marc Whitten continues his trend of writing us "letters" that recap Microsoft's happenings at E3 once again. He usually slips in one or two unannounced items, and this year's report is no differen... read
Ubisoft's E3 press conference kicked off with Q Entertainment's Tetsuya Mizuguchi wearing a swanky pair of white gloves while he worked it on stage with his new Kinect-centric game, Child of Eden. Basically, it was amazing. H... read
E3 is going to be massive, and it's only a few days away. After taking a deep breath and digesting the mighty "Games of E3" list we posted yesterday, I polled the Destructoid staff to find out what title they think are going to be the hottest titles at the show. Or perhaps more specifically, what they're looking forward to.
What did they say? You'll never know until you hit the jump! read feature
My strong desire to avoid playing MMOs is not something I've ever tried to hide. Even if I wanted to get pulled into one of these games, the time honestly isn't there. You can imagine, then, how I feel when videos about craz... read
I don't own an iPhone or have any real interest in the vast majority of the games exclusive to the device. Why am I telling you this? Because against all odds, I am supremely intrigued by Pix'n Love Rush, which just so happe... read
First the good news: OMG Evil Dead RPG! Now the bad: It's not a real thing.

My desire to play Transformers: War for Cybertron gets a big ol' boost every time one of these videos gets pushed out the door; this latest behind-the-scenes video is probably the worst offender yet. I am more immensely curi... read
Oh Valve and your adorable marketing team -- is there anything you can't do? Taking a break from the absolutely insane Portal shenanigans, let's instead take a look at some swanky pictures that various game-covering outlets r... read
Due to the ridiculously awesome nature of this news, I'm going to skip the pleasantries and jump right to it: Thanks to the success of Mega Man 9, a new Mega Man game presented in good ol' 16-bit fashion seems like a possibil... read
Insane videogame trivia that someone won't discover until years after the fact and Nintendo sure do go hand in hand. The prime example (I'm so sorry if this is new to you) is surely the "bushes in Super Mario Bros. are simply... read
It's been awfully quiet on the Fallout: New Vegas front for way too long. Last we heard, Obsidian Entertainment's not-a-sequel-to-Fallout 3 was on track for a release this year. If that's still the case, Bethesda will likely ... read
Is there a term to describe those Super Mario World levels that play themselves and sometimes make music as a result? I'm sure there is, but I don't know it. "Automatic Mario" doesn't count, because that sounds silly. At any... read
By the time I'm a withered old man, I expect to have 3D board games with battles that unfold similar to the scene presented in this Supreme Commander 2 image. It could be sorta like The Indian in the Cupboard, except with rob... read
