State of the Dtoid Address

Dear Niero, Hamza, and Dale, The community needs to be better informed and more involved with what is going on around the site. There have been 13 different shit storms going on in the last week or two across all parts of Dt...

 


Dtoid Sucks Now

Yep, it's another one of those blogs. An old-timer is ranting and raving about things changing and people moving on, blah blah blah. I started coming to Destructoid 6 years ago. That's a long time for anything, let alone s...

 


The Best Overlooked Game of 2013

This is a Public Service Announcement: thereís an amazing game on Xbox Live that nobody seems to be aware of. Itís an old-school beat-Ďem-up that combines the stunning pixel art of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and the sophisti...

 


I'm a Grumpy, Old Douchebag: A Rant

Disclaimer: this is a rambling, loosely focused rant that will probably expose me as a hypocrite. Up front: hypocrisy confirmed. I need to get a few things off my chest on this snowy Friday afternoon, though, so wonít you in...

 


The Agony and the Ecstasy of XCOM

Disclaimer: I played through the game on normal, no ironman mode - I'm a wimp. Has it really been almost 3 years since I updated my cblog? Also, I made a new banner and everything, but I couldn't get it to update. Here it is:...

 


CONTEST WINNERS: Three's Company

CONTEST: Games As Art

After seeing DaedHead8's recent contest, I was inspired to give back to my Destructoid brethren. So if he wouldn't mind, I'm borrowing his idea and spreading some community love in time for the holidays. In other words, I'm g...

 


Niero Whupped Superman's Ass

Well, I figured I'd join in the fun and add to the headaches for today's Cblog recapper. Happy third anniversary, Niero and crew! I've had a hell of a lot of fun here since I joined the site (maybe a year ago? I don't remem...

 


Ghetto Rock Band Drum Pedal Fix

To quote Jack Black in Anchorman, after punting a dog off a highway overpass, "That's how I roll." I'm sure a good percentage of people who purchased the original Rock Band instruments have experienced some sort of failure...

 


Raging Raven from MGS4 is Real

You know the Raging Raven boss from Metal Gear Solid 4? Yeah, that's real now. Yves Rossy, a 49-year-old former military pilot, became the first person to cross the English Channel using a single jet-propelled wing. With a...

 


Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

After coming home from a hard day at work refreshing Dtoid all day, I was greeted by the RRoD. Nah, it's cool; I didn't want to play Soulcalibur IV or Castle Crashers or Dead Rising or Oblivion or Gears of War for the next ...

 


Street Fighter II Quarter Matches

My fellow Dtoiders, the time has come to have another quarter match night on Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting (Xbox Live Arcade). For those people who missed out the first time, this was an incredibly fun series of matches h...
