Film Pixel Poetry makes a case for games being art


10:30 AM on 12.18.2013



Game designer and filmmaker Richard Cook is working on a project called "Pixel Poetry: The Case for Videogames as Art." Slated for a summer 2014 release, this film tackles the popular gamer's debate once again, supported by interviews from many gaming personalities, from Kellee Santiago to Adam Sessler to our own Jonathan Holmes. 

Cook is currently funding the film via an IndieGoGo campaign. If you would like to see how he keeps this discussion going, consider supporting the film.

The Etsy crowd is making some great custom amiibo

We post a lot of amiibo stuff on Destructoid, and when I say we, I mean "not me." That ends today. I couldn't pass up this chance to highlight the custom amiibo scene on Etsy. The results are admittedly hit or miss -- this is Etsy -- but even the misses have a certain humorous charm to them. Let's take a look. [Header image: Alltheapplesdoubled]more
