What do you love that everyone else hates?

Yesterday, our own Jonathan Holmes bared his soul to the world when he came to the defense of tripping in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Though his reasons were myriad and his motives sincere, after skimming the nearly 450 comments...

I'm going to miss tripping in Super Smash Bros. 4

[Art by Fallen Party] [Update: Some of you are pretty upset about the article! Sorry about that. Also, a few people pointed out a couple of mistakes I made. First, I wrote that you can block in the air in Smash Bros. Looks li...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/12]

You should watch Ping Pong: The Animation. It's why Lebron James realized he needed to go back to Cleveland, true story. But be warned, watching other anime after will be hard because it leaves you extra acutely aware of how ...

Here are five reasons I'm curious about Dragon Age: Inquisition

I've liked just about everything I've seen from Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is weird, because historically I've basically avoided the series. Here is literally everything I knew about the previous Dragon Age games go...

Just Saiyan: 'Advance Adventure' Saga! Part 4

In this episode, while playing Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure, Bill and Max discuss Chiaotzu's dim sum secret, Japanese onomatopoeia, that damn song that I can't identify, and why is Nam white in this game?

Alien: Isolation's pre-order bonuses are annoyingly good

The pre-order bonuses for Alien: Isolation have been announced, and they're really, really cool... but should we take it at some kind of sign? After all, it was a very similar lust for bonuses that led to the crew of The Nostromo investigating the distress signal coming from LV-426, in the process granting passage to the film's titular nightmarish stowaway.

I messed around in the bizarre, experimental reboot of Rust

I first played Rust back in January. It was at times scary, confusing, and frustrating, which is to be expected in an anything-goes online multiplayer game about naked men trying to survive with rocks and crudely-fashioned ha...

Sharknado's: The Video Game's press release is a natural disaster

Sometimes, when I check my email, I find wonderful things like messages from friends and family, beta invites, or announcements that something I ordered has shipped. Sometimes, I find a pile of press releases. Sometimes they'...

Another fair comparison: 1001 Spikes is better than Game of Thrones

Believe it or not, there once was a time when many, many people thought that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was better than Advance Wars. Thankfully, those days are over now. According to my numbers, 89.6% of those who o...

Hey, new Wii U owners: Don't forget to play Nintendo Land

I forgot Nintendo Land existed until a couple weeks ago. Like some of you, I only recently bought a Wii U and after looking at some "what to play" lists for my next multiplayer game, I was reminded of this minigame collection...

None of these strategies helped me win at Mario Kart 8

I've fought the urge to buy a Wii U specifically for Wind Waker HD for the better part of a year now. After a strong E3 by Nintendo and a convenient Mario Kart 8 promotion, I finally relented. Between flipping throu...

In honor of Canada Day, a video about Akira.

Today is Canada day. And since "Canada" sounds kind of, sort of like "Kaneda," the hero of Otomo Katsuhiro's groundbreaking cyberpunk manga-turned-anime Akira, that's reason enough for me to put on my favorite red jacket and talk about one of his favorite pieces of media ever... Japanese, Canadian, or otherwise.

Guacamelee! is largely the product of DrinkBox trolling one another

Videogames are often at their best when you can just tell that the developers had fun making it. There's a special quality that shines through -- one that can sometimes be tough to place, but somehow makes itself passive...
