Best Bloodborne room

Let's hope Bloodborne's best room is insured


'Whoops'
Mar 26
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... read

Wow! TIE Fighter makes for a good Star Wars anime


TIEght
Mar 24
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. read

Man at Arms crafts Legend of Zelda shield


Wow, this thing HYRULES, GET IT?
Mar 23
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... read
Cliffy BK

I think Cliffy B's joining a top-secret Burger King Kids Club


The new Kid Vid
Mar 18
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 ... read
Sanic the Hegehog

Dang, someone got this Sanic amiibo before I could


Snagged!
Mar 17
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 "I originally made this for a good friend," wrote designer Alltheapplesdoubled, "but I would love to have an army of Sanics running a... read
Stop-motion Link

That time Link savagely killed a monster for Vine


More stop-motion Legend of Zelda fun
Mar 12
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 ... read
Hungry Hungry Crossfire

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


A true blend of genres
Mar 11
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... read
Five Nights at Freddy's

Animatronic Freddy Fazbear is creepy as all hell


Nope, not sleeping any time soon
Mar 09
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... read
Mistaken sprites

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


I still struggle to see Emperor Gestahl correctly
Mar 02
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... read

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 ... read
Assassin's Creed science

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


'If the jumper is willing to suffer severe injuries...'
Feb 25
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... read
Wall of slimes

I badly want to pop this wall of Dragon Quest slimes


Game marketing done right
Feb 24
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... read
Pokémon throwback

These old Pokémon ads and toys bring me back


My childhood, summarized
Feb 20
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... read
President Cat

We salute you, President Cat


You have my vote any day
Feb 16
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. read
Dale sings Tomodachi

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 ... read
Remember Vectorman?

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


Also, what was up with level two?
Feb 11
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... read
Sony's Keith

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


Castaway Boy Keith
Feb 10
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... read
PlayStation song

Remember that time Eiffel 65 sang about PlayStation?


'My Console'
Feb 03
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... read
Czech PlayStation ads

These Czech PlayStation ads make me feel like a criminal


I just got sickled and hammered
Feb 01
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... read

Real life Ryu wrecks car with his bare hands


Bonus stage
Jan 29
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. read
Battletoads shirt

Nice Battletoads shirt, Phil Spencer


The head of Xbox is fashionable, as always
Jan 21
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. read
Hyrule Warriors

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


I, uh, kind of what this to be real
Jan 15
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... read
Anna Giving Birth

A game about Frozen's Anna giving birth


Let it go
Jan 14
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... read

I am a peaceful gnome bard with body image issues, what are you?


PEACEFUL GNOME BARD FROM THE BASE OF A VOLCANO WHO HAS SERIOUS BODY IMAGE PROBLEMS
Jan 09
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... read
Arizona games

Games that remind me of my Arizona vacation


~Memories!~
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... read
Devil May Cry

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


Featuring Real Dante™
Jan 06
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! read
Dota 2 mod

I hope this Gabe Newell shopkeeper makes it into Dota 2


As seen on Steam Workshop
Jan 05
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 ... read
Guile's birthday

Happy birthday, Guile


Looking good!
Dec 23
You thought we forgot? Not a chance. Happy birthday, Guile! Rock-solid abs, a full head of hair, that sprightly glimmer in your eye -- you're looking fabulous. Destructoid is home to plenty of adoring fans who post daily trib... read
OutRun

I think we've found the ultimate OutRun machine


Shake the street
Dec 22
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... read

Pokémon's tribute to Pat Benatar is beautiful

This hiker is a real tough cookie with a long history of breaking little hearts like the one in me.  read
Shovel Knight

What the butt? Shovel Knight is in Road Redemption


He's coming to the Steam Early Access game today
Dec 22
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. read
Kittiez

When Mario jumps, kitty jumps


That's how this is gonna work
Dec 15
"Them's some good kitty jumps," Destructoid's managing editor Jordan Devore enthusiastically proclaimed before mandating this video be posted despite it being two years old. You're the boss, Jordan. You're the boss. read
