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 ...

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...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [6/28]

Burn it all to the ground. I'm making guacamole.  Here's last week's post. Let's begin anew. [We post a lot of articles here at Destructoid. The endless, ouroboros news cycle has us burning the snake at both ends, w...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [6/21]

No longer tormented by the ants, I'm again able to stock Kahlua, which means my first white Russian in ages. With cream instead of milk, too. Now I'm going to go get tikka masala. Not bad. I walked in on my friend playing Gra...

E3 2014 begins next week. Destructoid has its bags packed, ready to attack the press conferences and show floor.  This year should bring us what we really wanted last year: games for our next-gen consoles. Sony and Micro...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [6/7]

I have to make like a snake and get on a plane for E3 real soon. Still not packed. That's what Sunday night is for. I just want to file all my E3 reports like Ulala in Space Channel 5, strutting and dancing down the show floo...

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [5/31]

Who wants to help me move this weekend? I found (after 8 months) a place that is sickeningly expensive, because San Francisco is ruined, but not so expensive that I want to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge instead of continuin...

DNA splicing will make you a better you in Subnautica

Natural Selection began life in 2002 as a mod that successfully married the first-person shooter and real-time strategy genres. It's since gone on to eat up the last 12 years of developer Unknown Worlds' time as they created ...

Reviews In Review: Wolfenstein The New Order, Transistor, Drakengard 3

Look, E3 is coming up soon and that means we're about to get super excited about games. Let's take a minute and be thankful for the games we have right now, ok?

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [5/24]

Take a walk this weekend. For real. At least 35 minutes. Show your work. While you're not listening to me: go listen to that new Jurassic 5 song. Anytime someone dramatically yells "I'm a fraud," imagine them yelling "I'm a f...

The old world European electronic noir of Transistor

As much as Jen Zee's mood paintings and art catalyzed what would become Transistor early on, so too did Darren Korb's music. The soundtrack is an important part of Transistor and while I'd like to be able to yell at you to go...

Transistor's sword was a briefcase at one point

Parts I and II of this series have touched on various elements of Transistor's design, but not one of its most striking facets, the artistry that immediately arrested many of us when Transistor was announced. We also sat down...

Under a red sky Part II: Transistor's strategy for doing strategy

Make sure to read Part I in this series. It deals with development crunch time, getting a game ready to launch, and the genesis of Transistor post Bastion. Now we're continuing the abrupt, jerky carnival ride through time and...

Under a red sky: How Transistor came to be Part I

Turning down a one-way alley towards SuperGiant's downtown San Francisco office space, I noticed the fenced parking lots on either corner decorated with two sorts of barbed wire. Three classical, no nonsense parallel strands ...

Remembering the glory of videogame manuals

When I was a little girl, purchasing a new game often meant thumbing through the pages of a mammoth tome detailing impending gameplay down to the letter. If I were stuck on a long car trip with a recently-purchased title, dig...
