Things I watched on the plane to gamescom

Love the smell of my boyfriend's Cologne
Aug 03
// Steven Hansen
My standards go out the window while I ate the "pasteurized process cheese food" provided by United as an in-flight snack. If you have to designate your product as "food," there is a problem. It tasted like a cheesy Ritz with...

Dog gives crying baby PS3 controller in apology

Dogs are great and babies are lame
Jul 17
// Steven Hansen
This baby is bad at sharing. The beagle felt bad about taking its toy, so it apologized by giving it many new ones, including a DualShock 3. It also might be trying to suffocate the baby, I'm not sure. Dogs are great.

Season 5, episode 1
Jul 09

Season 5 of Hey Ash Watcha Playin'? debuted today. The show originally aired right here on 'ol Destructoid before ending up on Game Trailers until 2013. Since then, episodes have been sparse, often sponsored, ending up along...

Mario, but completely covered in fur thanks to Unreal 4

More weird engine tests
Jul 07
// Steven Hansen
Do you remember how many Super Mario Bros. recreations littered LittleBigPlanet? Mario is iconic. He is video games. So it's not surprising folks messing around in Unreal Engine 4 continue to use the model. It's more fun in ...

Destructoid at E3: Steven eats a banana

Jordan ate some string cheese
Jun 17
// Brett Makedonski
[BREAKING: ORDER REVERSED! ORDER REVERSED! See pic below.] Eating healthy is important when you're at an event that's as hustle and bustle as E3. That's why Steven takes a minute out of his day to give his body the nutrients it deserves by scarfing down a delicious banana. Stay tuned for part two later tonight, in which he'll down too much whiskey and cry into his street burrito.

Mario Kart 8's Cheese Land will crush your spirit on 200cc

Brake drifting is our saving grace
Apr 24
// Jordan Devore
Mario Kart 8 feels fresh again and not just because of the fabulous new tracks added in this week's Animal Crossing-themed DLC Pack 2. Nintendo also unleashed the humbling 200cc class in a free update for the game. We saw the...

Whoa there Xenoblade Chronicles X alien, put on some pants!

There's a special Nintendo Direct going on right now for Xenoblade Chronicles X. As someone who has paid little attention thus far, I have no idea what's happening despite the Direct's best attempts at setting the stage and l...

Rub kiwi juice on pregnant Elsa's belly, and more terrible Frozen games

Do you want to clean a baby?
Apr 20
// Brett Makedonski
A few months ago, Jordan dutifully informed us of a game that we probably could've gone our whole lives without knowing about: a Frozen game in which Anna gives birth. What if I told you there are more Frozen pregn...

Yes, Nintendo, this Kong IS one hell of a guy

The Wii U port of Donkey Kong 64 says the swear
Apr 16

And let's keep it that way. None of that "heck" monkey business. Or Donkey Kong Frappuccinos.

I hope Veryman.Expert becomes America's next great pastime

Let's fast track this sucker
Apr 10
// Jordan Devore
Think about the weirdest thing you saw today. Veryman.Expert is probably weirder. It's a browser-based god game, so to speak, about creating men. There are no losers, ever. You can adjust your man's movements -- a touch of Le...

Stretching Mario's face will never get old

We're all guilty
Apr 10
// Jordan Devore
Now that it's downloadable for Wii U, Super Mario 64 has entered my life again. It wasn't my favorite Nintendo 64 title -- heck, it wasn't even my favorite 3D platformer on the console -- but it was a formative game and, comi...

Make an unholy shrine to Sonic out of bones

Preferably chicken bones, but whatever works
Apr 06
// Jordan Devore
In this episode of Craft Lab, hosts Anna Akana and Greg Aronowitz craft a Sonic the Hedgehog statue partially out of chicken bones. It's cut down the middle to show his insides. Eww. If I went into someone's home and saw one of these on display, I wouldn't expect to leave alive. Would've been less creepy if they had kept Sonic's legs nice and lanky.

Google Maps is now a giant game of Pac-Man

I like when companies channel their April Fools' Day creativity into something real as opposed to just announcing a phony product or service that really ought to exist. This year, Google has another fun interactive gag for us...

From Software is onto us. There's a room in Bloodborne full of lots and lots of breakable pots. At the Cathedral Ward lamp, take a left down some stairs and then take a right at the well. Next, swing left past the Church Gia...

Wow! TIE Fighter makes for a good Star Wars anime

Mar 24
// Steven Hansen
Paul Johnson spent "[four] years' worth of weekends" drawing and animating this '80s anime-inspired Star Wars TIE Fighter short film focusing on the Imperial pilots. It's like a cleaned up, rock and roll backed Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

Man at Arms crafts Legend of Zelda shield

Wow, this thing HYRULES, GET IT?
Mar 23
// Steven Hansen
Another Man at Arms, then? Though it seems the series spun off since I've last seen it (last year) with a new team of blacksmiths. Still, this one goes well with the recent trend of cool craftspeople making cool Legend of Ze...

Sharpen your conspiracy sticks, truthers. This news is right up there alongside the greatest that the Illuminati and New World Order could offer. This makes the claims that Denver International Airport is the secret lair for ...

Dang, someone got this Sanic amiibo before I could

Mar 17
// Jordan Devore
I've highlighted some custom amiibo in my time, but nothing like this. Nothing like Sanic. "I originally made this for a good friend," wrote designer Alltheapplesdoubled, "but I would love to have an army of Sanics running a...

Holmes passed along this "stop-motion animation Zelda thing" by Johnny McHone earlier today and I put off watching it for far too long. Don't make the same mistake! The video borders on amateurish at times, but that ends up ...

Let me set the scene: Day 1 of PAX has come to a close, or at least the show floor has. My friends and I have just finished dinner and are on our way back into the convention center to check out the Super Smash Bros. tou...

Animatronic Freddy Fazbear is creepy as all hell

Nope, not sleeping any time soon

Love them or hate them, the Five Nights at Freddy's games have been incredibly popular. Big surprise, people find slightly uncanny animatronic animals universally creepy. Now, thanks to Youtube user Dr. CreepyPasta, we get t...

'Togekiss watching Doduo take a crap' and other mistaken sprites

Instead of taking a proper lunch break away from my computer today, I got caught up in this funny, nostalgic NeoGAF thread about "sprites that look like things they're not supposed to." Older games allowed and even encouraged...

Chainsaw-carved Majora's Mask is authentic as it gets

Got wood?
Feb 26

Now that's a one of a kind collector's item. Forget the gaudy gold New 3DS XL. Artist Griffon Ramsey works with the most delicate brush of all, the chained saw, and with it she sculpted this beautiful Majora's Mask out of a ...

Scientists: Don't jump off buildings into haystacks like an assassin

'If the jumper is willing to suffer severe injuries...'

Everybody knows that people who play videogames are impressionable. After playing Pac-Man, we invariably binge eat. After a session with Call of Duty, we all joined the military. But science says that maybe we shouldn't do ev...

There's a bubble-wrap wall of slimes in this wild world of ours. Can you guess where? Japan. Of course it's in Japan! The poppable piece of marketing is at the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line Shinjuku Station Metro Promenade. Lot...

I went down an Internet wormhole last night when I really, truly should've just gone to bed. It began with this Imgur album of old Pokémon ads, but as someone who grew up alongside Pokémania, it couldn't end the...

We salute you, President Cat

Feb 16
// Jordan Devore
Sukeban Shachou Rena, also known as "President Cat," was one of those games destined to never leave Japan despite our pleas. Back in 2009, western fans petitioned for a localization, but this minigame collection about a CEO cat was perhaps ahead of its time -- it sold miserably. No matter. Our love for Rena is unwavering. Dawww, just look at that face.

Ah, that smooth, buttery voice. Those luscious harmonies. That pixelated plaid shirt. That is our friend (and former Editor-in-Chief) Dale North. He has taken the default lyrics to the ballad "Maybe, Baby" in Tomodachi Life ...
