Video: Condoms and other swag at E3 2014
by Jordan Devore

Best swag of E3 2014? There's the usual t-shirts, posters, stickers, and other stuff that gets handed out. Forget that. Atlus' Teddy-centric Persona bags were where it was at this year.

Those Splatoon squids were nice, too. But condoms? Oh, E3.

'Nintendo's white PlayStation 4 debuts'

Look, we all make mistakes -- some more severe than others -- but this? Haha. Thanks for the laugh this morning, Los Angeles Times. [Image source: @sibel47]

This is the studio behind all those amazing CG game trailers photo
This is the studio behind all those amazing CG game trailers
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Blur is the studio behind all the amazing CG game trailers we've seen over the years. Batman, Halo, The Elder Scrolls Online, Prey II -- so many to list here. So, just watch their animation/FX reel they released this past week, highlighting their work.

It's totally okay to laugh once you see they also made the Goldfish crackers commercials too.

Speedrun through Super Mario World without finishing the first level

After watching a great deal of the week long Awesome Games Done Quickly charity livestream, I've gained a new appreciation for the ingenuity and thought process of speed runners. Still, it's crazy how many new tricks are bei...

The Terminator 2 river chase gets remade in Grand Theft Auto Online

So middle school for me involved many brain-rotting activities, not the least of which was the countless amount of hours spent watching machinima videos. While I don't have the free time that I used to, it's still a joy to w...

Guild Wars 2 meets anime in this stop motion fight scene

From the painstaking artistry at work, to my upbringing with films like The Nightmare Before Christmas, there's a reverence that I'll always have for stop motion animation, even if the final product isn't amazing (looking at...

Deadpool does Fanime, and wins

I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything inte...

Look how happy Mario is kicking Samus in the face!

Bandai's upcoming S.H. Figuarts Mario figure is pretty damn cute. Look at how happy he is! Bandai released a bunch of preview shots, showing Mario with some of the items that collectors can get, such as a turtle shell. We als...

9 minutes of the cosplay from MomoCon 2014

You know the drill by now. When BeatDownBoogie makes a cosplay montage you stop what you're doing and enjoy the showcase. This time the gang went to MomoCon in Atlanta to see all the cosplay creations people came up with. Th...

Gary Busey and Chewbacca make for amazing Miis

You ever see something that's so simple, yet so perfect? Like a Gordon Ramsey dish that uses just five ingredients, and only takes 30 minutes to make. Vinesauce is giving you just that with their Sh*tty Mii creation, whereby Vinny takes a picture of celebrities with the Wii U GamePad, and lets the Mii creator do the rest. It's as perfectly horrible as it sounds.

Super Source Bros. Melee

What if Valve made their own Super Smash Bros. game, but with characters from Dota 2, Half-Life, Portal, Counter-Strike, and Left 4 Dead? What if?!

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...

Did You Know Gaming hits us with Part 2 of its Game Boy series

Did you know, the Game Boy Color had wireless capabilities via an infrared sensor? Or that the system also had motion controls? Did you know that the Game Boy Advance was supposed to have online and wireless multiplayer at o...

This live-action Street Fighter series is actually pretty great

So Machinima's Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist series is surprisingly enjoyable to watch. I was worried this would be another hit-or-miss situation as with the live-action Mortal Kombat stuff, but that's not the case here. I...

One way to win at Dark Souls II: Dress up like an enemy & stand still photo
One way to win at Dark Souls II: Dress up like an enemy & stand still
by Steven Hansen

With the right clothes and American Werewolf in London green skin color, it's possible to stand in as an enemy in Dark Souls II. And then watch invading players flounder about, confused, trying to find you.

Can't pull the wool over Guile's eyes, though.

Today is the anniversary of the best Super Nintendo game of all time

18 years ago today, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars was released in North America (though if you want to get really technically the game was first released in Japan on March 9, 1996). Normally I don't really keep ...
