Aliens disappoints, Demos kill sales, and Toys are fun


9:30 PM on 02.12.2013



Hello there, boys and girls! It's your creepy uncle Max with another installment of the critically-acclaimed [citation needed] Destructoid Show!

Today we talk about Aliens: Colonial Marines, which seems to be the bummer of the week here in video game land. Definitely a big disappointment, but if nothing else, it'll be interesting to hear what went wrong. Rumors of outsourcing seem to be the current scapegoat, though SEGA denies it. In other news, a DICE keynote reveals that game demos hurt sales. DICE keynotes are boring so I talk about Toy Fair 2013. In post-apocalyptic news, Obsidian devs wouldn't be opposed to make another Fallout, and Brian Fargo's Kickstarter'd Wasteland 2 shows off its first gameplay.

What's Up: Unreal Tournament, AC Unity, X-Men trading cards, DOOM II RPG

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. more

What's Up: ME4's Mako, Deadpool test footage, Gal Gadot as Xena

Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.more
