This Pokemon x Attack on Titan art is so gross, I love it

There's almost a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark vibe here, but less wispy and terrifying. These come courtesy of Beth "Zsparky" Emery. Charmander and Mr. Mime are my favorites.

Wii Fit Trainer fits right in, though, as a human and not some monstrous approximation of such.

I feel like character customization quickly became the best part of wrestling games when it was introduced. Probably because the games themselves weren't always that great, but they allowed you to go wild. Maybe that was a bad idea, taken to this horrible extreme.

SNES-style battle music album Boss Battles for the Soul is out now

Last year, electronic music creator Mark Reichwein ran a little Kickstarter campaign for his pet project: to produce an album of boss battle music in the style of various 16-bit era games. The catch is that these track would ...

Oakland formally lifts 80-year pinball ban

There's a thing anyone who took a US government class in high school from an angry bald man should know: technology outpaces law. Not just technology. Advancement in general. Are Let's Plays illegal? We can only hope.  S...

Ah, so that's where all those extra copies of iCarly 2 ended up

I figured former Destructoid editor-in-chief Nick Chester had purchased all of the unwanted copies of iCarly 2: iJoin the Click! and, I don't know, bathed in them or something. Apparently not! This image comes from reddit use...

This is Phil Fish explains the phenomenon of Phil Fish

I never got the hate for Phil Fish. Which is to say I understood it, but thought it was overblown and dumb. This video does a tidy job of explaining why. Basically, it's the internet's fault. And everyone that isn't Phil Fish. And Phil Fish. Just watch it.

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.

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...
