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 "I originally made this for a good friend," wrote designer Alltheapplesdoubled, "but I would love to have an army of Sanics running a...

That time Link savagely killed a monster for Vine

More stop-motion Legend of Zelda fun
Mar 12
// Jordan Devore
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 ...

The best thing I saw at PAX was not on the show floor

A true blend of genres
Mar 11
// Patrick Hancock
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
Mar 09
// Laura Kate Dale
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

I still struggle to see Emperor Gestahl correctly
Mar 02
// Jordan Devore
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
// Steven Hansen
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...'
Feb 25
// Darren Nakamura
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...

I badly want to pop this wall of Dragon Quest slimes

Game marketing done right
Feb 24
// Jordan Devore
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...

These old Pokmon ads and toys bring me back

My childhood, summarized
Feb 20
// Jordan Devore
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...

President Cat

We salute you, President Cat

You have my vote any day
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.

Maybe, baby, Dale North is the one for me

How will I know unless we take a chance?
Feb 13

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 ...

Remember Vectorman?

True fact: Shooting the Sega logo in Vectorman is life's greatest pleasure

Also, what was up with level two?
Feb 11
// Jordan Devore
It's been almost two decades since I first played Vectorman, BlueSky Software's treasured run-and-gun game for the Sega Genesis, and I still can't get over how absurd its second level is. That's what I had intended to write...

Sony's canceled Game Boy title would have beaten Link's Awakening to the punch

Castaway Boy Keith

Today in cool old videogames I'm only now hearing about for the first time, we have Castaway Boy Keith, an unreleased action-RPG for the Game Boy from Epic/Sony. As much as the screenshots resemble a certain handheld Nintendo...

Remember that time Eiffel 65 sang about PlayStation?

'My Console'

You know Eiffel 65 for the international sensation "Blue (Da Ba Dee)," whose music video looks like it was ripped straight from a videogame, but did you know the Italian Eurodance group also put out a song about the original...

These Czech PlayStation ads make me feel like a criminal

I just got sickled and hammered
Feb 01
// Jason Faulkner
These ads come from not too long after the Iron Curtain became the Iron Drapes, and Western culture began flooding the former Warsaw Pact. It's obvious that there was still a little bit of a learning experience going on in 19...

Real life Ryu wrecks car with his bare hands

Bonus stage
Jan 29
// Steven Hansen
I hope that car was non-running and cheaper to junk than fix, or else that's a waste of a perfectly good little car. Not that we all haven't thought about letting the aggressions out and possibly hurting ourselves while destroying some property. Just think about taking a baseball bat to some cheap, boardwalk-prize glassware. I could go for one of those right now.

Nice Battletoads shirt, Phil Spencer

The head of Xbox is fashionable, as always
Jan 21
// Jordan Devore
During Microsoft's Windows 10 livestream this morning, Xbox boss Phil Spencer showed up to talk about what he knows: games. Fable Legends is headed to PC with DirectX 12 and cross-platform play with Xbox One, which is nice and all, but did you see Phil's shirt? That's Battletoads alright. The time is now.

Campy old Zelda CD-i games imagined as Hyrule Warriors DLC

I, uh, kind of what this to be real
Jan 15
// Jordan Devore
Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon are two ill-fated Philips CD-i games that would be best left forgotten if they weren't such trainwrecks. Their legacy of unintentional hilarity endures through YouTube, g...

Another treasure from the mobile games space courtesy of former Destructoid editor Nick Chester. This one's called Anna Giving Birth and while I ponder what kind of audience this iPhone/iPad game exists to serve, I'll let the...

Random generators. Without them, there would be no Childish Gambino. Probably other things. If you're looking for your next backstory in a rousing game of Dungeons and Dragons and can't be bothered imagineering one up, look n...

Jan 06

"My body is ready." That was the first message I sent to our staff-wide chat client this year, and it's true: I'm back from a holiday break, ready to write. For once, I wasn't glued to my email or Twitter while vacationing. I...

Man at Arms crafts Dante's Rebellion Sword from Devil May Cry

Featuring Real Dante
Jan 06
// Chris Carter
The Man at Arms series is badass. The recreated weapons are incredibly faithful, and next up is another videogame themed episode -- this time based off of the Devil May Cry series. This rebellion blade has been featured in Devil May Cry 2, 3, and 4, as well as the anime. Get a look at the creation process in their newest video above, or skip straight to 11:00 to see the finished sword!

Combining the huggable head of Valve and the perpetual time sink that is Dota 2 in a single Steam Workshop submission -- it seems so obvious now, bringing these two internet loves together. Shopkeeper Gabe Newell deserves a ...

I hadn't heard of Force Dynamics' crazy-looking 401cr motion platform before today but I'm already convinced: it is the coolest way to play Sega's arcade classic OutRun.* "This is the original arcade OutRun from 1986, ported...

What the butt? Shovel Knight is in Road Redemption

He's coming to the Steam Early Access game today
Dec 22
// Jordan Devore
Shovel Knight's surprise appearance in Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption seems like the result of the developers meeting over drinks, someone throwing out a wild idea, and no one being sober enough to interject. Then again, this is the studio responsible for butt mode. Bless 'em.
