Final GDC DLC launches with massive bugs, Mountain Dew shotgunning

Destructoid has launched its fifth and final GDC Daily Lunch Chronicles and interim cameraman Mike Cosimano again screwed up the sound. Instead of letting him get cute with ragtime music and title cards like last time, we're...

GDC 15 DLC #4: Pita wraps, damn good fries and ragtime

We didn't have usual cameraman Kenny Redublo during our fourth lunch of GDC (see us dining with Dale here) and things went a bit awry. Our substitute cameraman Mike Cosimano had some fun with it, though, with some silent mov...

Japan is getting those Mario Kart 8 McDonalds toys too

Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge

This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead.

Pizza Hut made $1M in four months through the Xbox 360

Pizza Hut's director of public relations, Doug Terfehr, has told Polygon that they've sold $1 million in pizzas through the Xbox 360 in four months. Doug goes on to say that they're "not done in" the gaming space, and the company is having ongoing conversations with other potential gaming partners. I think you all know exactly how I feel about this news.

See those adorable Japanese McDonald Mario toys in action

Remember those awesome Japanese Mario Happy Meal toys we showed last week? Well now there are a bunch a video's confirming just how cool they are.  Okay... well maybe they aren't that cool, but they would look pretty classy on any gaming shelf.

Spooky Call of Duty: Ghosts Pumpkin Bread & Seeds photo
Spooky Call of Duty: Ghosts Pumpkin Bread & Seeds
by Steven Hansen

Happy Halloween spooks and ghouls! If it feels like it's been a month since A la cartrdige's Wind Waker Pouched Salmon, that's because it has been. Rest assured, we did not OD on puns and die. Our pun tolerance transcends human sensibilities. We're all just really busy. And busty. I need to go to the gym.

Still, 'tis the seasons, and we wanted to bring you a seriously spooOOoooOOooky Halloween episode of A la cartridge. So we did! We toasted some pumpkin seeds and made some amazing pumpkin bread. How amazing? Watch the video and seed for yourself. If you don't get scared out of your wits first. Are you bready?

No more letting those jack-o-lanterns go to waste. Pumpkins are still readily available throughout November, probably on the cheap, but you can even use your current jack-o-lantern to make pumpkin bread, provided it hasn't rotted away. Or Call of Duty : Ghosts hasn't rotted your brain. Hoorah!

Finned baker: The Wind Waker HD Pouched Salmon

Salad of the wind fish.

We're making some portable eats on this week's A la cartridge. Inspired by the HD release of the seafaring adventure that is by far the best Legend of Zelda game, The Wind Waker,  we have our first seafood dish of the show. Also perhaps the Hyrule-est pun count yet. We had the maritime of our lives. Dear god. 

These individually foil-wrapped salmon pouches feel like Link could pull them out of his tunic at any point in time, chow down, and regain some hearts. Wind make some for yourself! Bonus points: if you're not a typical seafood fan, the topping and seasonings get rid of that oft disliked "fishy taste."

Throw one in your pocket and head onward towards adventure. Or make yourself a nice smoothie out of last week's Puppeteer recipe.

A la cartridge: Throwing back a Kutaro Smoothie
by Steven Hansen

We were feeling pretty bad about ourselves after last week's Grand Theft Auto V episode of A la Cartridge wherein we made a pastrami-topped triple chili cheese dog burrito. Yes, it was as absurd as it sounds.

Accordingly, we decided to make something healthy for Puppeteer, the delightful platformer from Sony Japan. Smoothies are a cheap, quick and easy venture and manage to pack a whole lot of good taste into a small package. This one is extra good for you, too, just like how different and creative games like Puppeteer are healthy for the gaming industry amidst AAA action games and brown military shooters.

These make for a great quick breakfast or lunch. You can even parcel out your fruit ahead of time, freeze it, and always be ready to Kuta-go.

Grand Theft Swallow: 5-Star Wanted Burrito Bomb photo
Grand Theft Swallow: 5-Star Wanted Burrito Bomb
by Steven Hansen

I could barely fit it all in my mouth.

Grand Theft Auto V comes out next week, so we decided to make something fittingly huge and insane for this week's A la Cartridge. None of the fun and whimsy of last week's Dustin Hoffman x Rayman Legends crossover.

Well, that's not true. There is still some fun. I talk about dog customization and try to fit something of unrivaled girth into my mouth. Tip: three sausages is overkill. Between three of us, we finished half of this triple chili-cheese-dog, pastrami-topped burrito. 

Check out the video, full recipe below, and let me know if this dish Grand Theft Auto-matically made your stomach turn. It's damn tasty in spite of its absurdity, honest.

A la cartridge: Rayman's Legendary Chilaquiles
by Steven Hansen

Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames is doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. The third episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge is inspired by Rayman Legends. In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri?

Last week we went quintessential Americana with the Killer is Dead Mondo Burger. Now, we're heading south of the US border, to Mexico, to duck those murder raps and eat some Legendary Chilaquiles. Rayman Legends is a great couch co-op game and chilaquiles is a chill-and-easy dish that serves plenty.

Feel free to stir some scrambled eggs in as well. Go nuts. It's in the spirit of Rayman. I almost added candy eyeballs to everything.

This episode of A la cartridge is brought to you by Rainman's Raymond Babbit.

After last week's vegetarian reprieve, Pasta di Pikmin, we're taking a return to meat with the Killer is Dead-inspired Mondo Burger. Grasshopper's new game dropped yesterday and a lot of you are really interested in it, if yesterday's exploded comment section on my feature is any indication. 

I invite you to take a break from that madness and, Killer Instead, cook yourself something nice. This is a simple, powerful burger with some teeth to it. The full recipe is below.

Killer is fed.

Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames are doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. This is the second episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge, a straightforward cooking show where I teach you how to make tasty things and talk about the games that inspire them. In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri?

This week, we take a reprieve from meat and tackle a vegetarian dish. Yes, it's still mad tasty. Bell peppers are the best, especially when well pepp-ared. It's also probably easier than last week's Dragon's Crown-inspired pork shoulder and potatoes. Just throw things in fire! (more detailed recipe below)

If you're in the Olimar-ket for good eats, this Pikmin 3 platter is sure to please. Plus, you can make a whole bunch on the cheap and have leftovers for days. Watch the video. It only takes a few pikmin-utes.  I think I talk less stupidly and we're getting closer to eliminating jump cuts. Any sort of recipe you'd like to see done next? Any particular game? Want to comment on my fabulous shirt?

Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames are doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. I would like to humbly present the first episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge, a straightforward cooking show where I teach you how to make tasty things and talk about the games that inspire them. 

In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri? Will I remember to get a knife sharpener so I don't swear into the camera when I cut myself? Will the sorceress in Dragon's Crown invest in proper bust support to nip future back problems in the bud? 

Find out by watching the inaugural episode, in which I cook a gigantic pork shoulder and rosemary potatoes (full recipe below). And tell me what I can do to improve. What upcoming games might you want to see a dish for?
