[Every week (until I get bored), Art Juice takes a recent videogame story and provides an unremittingly artistic slant, telling us a little something about ourselves in the process ... whether we want to know the truth or not!]

Recently, Yahoo Games broke the laws of physics by awarding Batman: Arkham City a 6/5. It is my grave fear that such a reckless disregard for numbers will tear the very fabric of our reality apart, creating what I call a Hyperbole Rift. 

This rift is something I explore in my latest painting, a harsh reminder of what can happen when we try to play God. For Yahoo, it may seem harmless to claim that a videogame is somehow better than perfect, but toying with the universe in such an irresponsible way could have devastating effects -- represented in this piece with Batman having become a gibbering thrall of madness. This is what Yahoo did to Batman! Yahoo Games turned Batman into the very stuff of insanity itself!

Or, it just further cheapened a game review industry that's already pretty hard to respect.

Even if you must play all the Hot New Games, you don't need a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One to do so until 2015. Enough of them are still releasing on PS3 and 360 this fall. The rest, on PC (and, for some of us, handhelds).  With the recent release of Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros., you might consider buying a Wii U, though. more

Smash Bros. 4: Hopes, Fears, and Predictions

When it comes to writing about Smash Bros, I'm a control freak. If Destructoid goes more than a day without posting about the series, I get impatient. Smash Bros is actually a big reason why I got started here. Back in 2007, ...more

Weekend Playlist: Summer Jams

Summer is officially in full swing and most of you are probably sitting inside and playing Destiny. I dont blame you though, if I had a PS4 I would be doing the same exact thing. For those of you who maybe want to pretend you are outside enjoying the nice weather, I have created this playlist of happy summertime jams.   more
