A Guide To Recognizing Your Gamers

[Originally published in 2007, one of my favorites from Destructoid's Golden Archives! -Niero] It used to be a lot easier to stereotype a gamer. It used to be that all that was needed was some greasy hair, thick glasses, and ...

Botched Pokémon tattoo becomes newest beloved internet meme

If there's one thing my grandfather fought for in World War II, it was the right to monetize memes. Of course, he was in the Italian army, the side that rightfully lost the war, because all your grandfathers were fighting aga...

Pillars of Eternity, beaten in less than 40 minutes

Stretching Mario's face will never get old

Now that it's downloadable for Wii U, Super Mario 64 has entered my life again. It wasn't my favorite Nintendo 64 title -- heck, it wasn't even my favorite 3D platformer on the console -- but it was a formative game and, com...

Make an unholy shrine to Sonic out of bones

In this episode of Craft Lab, hosts Anna Akana and Greg Aronowitz craft a Sonic the Hedgehog statue partially out of chicken bones. It's cut down the middle to show his insides. Eww. If I went into someone's home and saw one of these on display, I wouldn't expect to leave alive. Would've been less creepy if they had kept Sonic's legs nice and lanky.

Wow! TIE Fighter makes for a good Star Wars anime

There's a finished version of the prior Donkey Kong sketch, an underwater scene (shown above), and a cool four-legged reimagining of the Chain Chomp. Good stuff, Jason. Jason Lupas [Tumblr]

Jacob 'Humble' Browe talks Minelands: Call of the Border
by Brittany Vincent

Jacob "Humble" Browe is a visionary. He's just shipped a multi-billion dollar game to hundreds of retailers across the United States and Canada, with additional release dates staggered across the world.

After running a successful Kickstarter that raised over $6.5 million to campaign for Avenged Sevenfold to play in his backyard, he then created a Patreon in an effort to supplement his crippling Starbucks habit month-to-month while using kickbacks from his millionaire parents to create Minelands: Call of the Border, the game that's got millions clamoring for a sequel only a day or so after release. Now he's making waves in the industry like we've never seen before. From humble beginnings, he's rising through the ranks of the video game business like a shooting star. It's going to be one fascinating ride.

You can beat Dying Light with no weapons, just punches and dropkicks

Not long removed from Dying Light's recent release, one boy decided to play through the entire game engaging only its best elements. That is, running around and drop kicking fools. It's dubbed the Jean Claude Van Damme run and its the only correct way to play a game that has drop kicks.  More games need drop kicks.

Get your knives out: A list of the best pointy objects in the business photo
Get your knives out: A list of the best pointy objects in the business
by Nic Rowen

Knives in games are weird. They're either way too weak and flimsy to be any fun (the weapon of last resort you mess around with for a few moments to delay dying or before you restart from your last, hopefully ammo-rich, save), or, by design choice or fluke, they are ridiculously overpowered and silly. I still giggle whenever I come across some hype-video of a CoD player running around with a combat knife, humbling scores of modern Spec Ops soldiers all decked out in the latest in high-powered assault weaponry.

Outside of trolling and goofing around, knives in games often just don't feel very good. They're not satisfying to use, or to fight against. That's why we have to celebrate the outliers. Those rare beautiful games that make it a joy, not a chore, to dive in up-close-and-personal to try to stick a piece of metal into another human being.

Real life Ryu wrecks car with his bare hands

I hope that car was non-running and cheaper to junk than fix, or else that's a waste of a perfectly good little car. Not that we all haven't thought about letting the aggressions out and possibly hurting ourselves while destroying some property. Just think about taking a baseball bat to some cheap, boardwalk-prize glassware. I could go for one of those right now.

Zoe Quinn founds anti-harassment network Crash Override photo
Zoe Quinn founds anti-harassment network Crash Override
by Mike Cosimano

In response to the wave of harassment in the videogame industry, Depression Quest developer Zoë Quinn and freelance game producer Alex Lifschitz have formed Crash Override: a network of anti-harassment crusaders with experience in PR, law enforcement, counseling, and more. The network is designed to combat harassment on a large scale, as opposed to attacks from a single abuser.

"We're not a company, just a formalized group of people who have learned how to support others through coordinated online mob harassment," an anonymous Crash Override representative told Destructoid in an email exchange. "We're focused on producing educational materials and helping victims who have reached out to us, but we also plan to engage in more significant outreach to platforms and cultural arbiters in video games and elsewhere to better prevent this kind of stuff from happening in the future."

According to the network's site, they are not a "vigilante group," and they "do not take retaliatory actions against abusers." Crash Override's services include both an immediate crisis control center and post-crisis counseling services to help victims cope with the events. The group's response infrastructure is under construction at press time, giving priority to victims of ongoing harassment.

There are also plans to use the network's Tumblr blog as a method of delivering online safety lessons, including a post about how to preemptively combat doxing.

Assassin's Creed fans' best guesses for Victory in painstaking detail photo
Assassin's Creed fans' best guesses for Victory in painstaking detail
by Brett Makedonski

There's a normal cycle of news for finding out about upcoming videogames. After a tightly-controlled reveal, details will trickle out slowly -- just enough at a time to barely placate prospective players, their longing for the game growing ever so strong until it climaxes at release.

Or, at least, that's how it'd always go if publishers had their way.

Assassin's Creed fans are taking things into their own hands. After a leak of the code-named (or actually named) Assassin's Creed Victory, the franchise's forums are ablaze with investigative speculation as to any and all possible theories about the game. These are some of the best talking points.
