Nothing like a jolt of awesome art to wake you up on a sleepy Friday.
Art dealer Cook & Becker has teamed up with Sega for a series of poster-sized prints based on some of our old favorites from Jet Set Radio to Phantasy ... read
Some people know how to multitask. I mean, really multitask. I am not one of them. I get flustered if I have to cook pasta during my washer's rinse cycle because who knows if the damn thing won't just explode and flood the e... read
Disclosure! Eric Neuhaus (Destructoid user donkeyspaceman or the artist formerly known as tsunamikitsune) made this game. I recognized Eric's name so I thought I might have been Facebook friends with him, but apparently I'm n... read
Konami could probably use some ideas My Silent Hill would be a place you couldn't trust. Doors would disappear behind you the moment you turned your back, hallways and staircases would loop back in impossible ways, main streets would abruptly end or lead to a pa... read feature
WWE 2K15 wasn't the best effort of recent titles in the wrestling series. But, a current hot topic in the games community might change that and make it a better game, at least to some degree.
Or, everything's just going ... read
First the patch for faster load times, now this fan-made map of Bloodborne -- damn, shouldn't have raced through the game like that. I'm missing out! There's always the inevitable fourth playthrough and beyond, I suppose.
I'm the man with the plan (and little else) I've probably spent more time creating characters, builds, and dreaming up party compositions in my head than I have actually playing games. It seems odd to think of it in that way, but if I could somehow tally it all up I be... read feature
Have you defeated Bloodborne yet and patted yourself on the back? Well stop everything you're doing and reflect upon your life, because long time Souls fan bearzly went ahead and beat the grueling crimson plasma loving ... read
Told you you shouldn't have done that. My go [Originally published in 2007, one of my favorites from Destructoid's Golden Archives! -Niero]
It used to be a lot easier to stereotype a gamer. It used to be that all that was needed was some greasy hair, thick glasses, and ... read feature
'My friend was drunk and on Xanax when he decided to tattoo a black face Charmander' If there's one thing my grandfather fought for in World War II, it was the right to monetize memes. Of course, he was in the Italian army, the side that rightfully lost the war, because all your grandfathers were fighting aga... read feature
Conrad lost a lot of his life to Pillars of Eternity when he reviewed it. Clearly the poor sap was playing it wrong because Jiseed beat the damn thing in less time than it takes to watch the newest watercooler TV episode.
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, com... read
Millions of fans know the overworld of Game of Thrones due to the map depicted in the intro of each episode. However, to many, this video's overworld will be instantly recognizable upon first viewing because of decades ... read
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. read
I was all ready to freak out when I saw this homage to BioShock's opening sequence created in CryEngine 3. I figured, perhaps naively, that it would go beyond the lighthouse and deep into the ocean, all the way down to Raptu... read
YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it.
He went with the Waste of Skin origin f... read
Unity developer Erik Roystan Ross took one of the most iconic and beloved levels in videogames and gave it a makeover. Ross recreated Bob-omb Battlefield, the first stage in 1996's Super Mario 64, in HD from scratch. Ev... read
Whether you're a complete newcomer to Metal Gear or a seasoned vet just shooting to glaze over a few things that you probably already know, it's not a bad idea to take a look at this top-secret document. Okay, it doesn't... read
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
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
That was a scary couple of minutes there while I dug through storage to confirm that, yes, my DK Bongos and copy of Donkey Konga have not vanished in recent years. My drum-whacking abilities have since dried up, though. Big ... read
Uncovering the mysterious, unforgiving, crazy-but-believably-crafted world of Lordran is one of the greatest pleasures experienced in not only Dark Souls, but in the last decade of videogames.
I'm still wrapping my head aroun... read
There’s a trend sweeping over YouTube at the moment, one that went unnoticed by me up until a few months ago. It's called ASMR (or if you want to kill time and sound fancy, autonomous sensory meridian response). I don&r... read
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
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
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
Hooray! Illustrator Jason Lupas has come out with more Mario and Shadow of the Colossus mashups following the pieces we covered last month. I'd love to see a game follow this concept.
There's a finished version of the prior Donkey Kong sketch, an underwater scene (shown above), and a cool four-legged reimagining of the Chain Chomp. Good stuff, Jason.

Web musician Dj CUTMAN has created a ton of awesome remixes of videogame music over the years. Today, he released his newest album, Volume III, compiling selected works from 2012-2015. There's a lot of great stuff in here, re... read
The titled epitome of '90s raditude done in by hubris, Sonic X-Treme, was meant to be the first full 3D Sonic -- a Mario 64 colleague -- and the first of SEGA's star series for its Saturn system. Like so many subsequent 3D S... read
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
I think it's fair to say that amiibo are quite a tour de force in certain communities. In fact, some might even point a finger at this very website and accuse us of being mildly caught up in the craze. But, a talented few are... read
Back in Pokémon's heyday, it was difficult enough to catch 'em all with legitimate friends, additional cartridges, and link cables, let alone do it in record time. One talented 21-year-old speedrunner from Ohio who go... read
