Forums, we have them: May 2011 photo



[The Forums are totally taking credit for the Watdoom craze that swept the site this month.]

We interrupt your regularly scheduled front page to once again remind you that Destructoid has Forums and if you didn't know about them you've been missing a lot. Here's a quick rundown of what's been going on this month.

Ordinarily this is where I'd make some witty commentary about life or videogames or the Forums, but it's been a rough month full of prolonged reoccurring illness so I'm a bit at a loss. Just pretend I wrote a naughty limerick here and let's move on.

In case you've been living under a rock and completely missed all news concerning the hacking and subsequent downtime of the PlayStation Network there's a thread dedicated to the discussion. Check it out and voice your concerns and speculations about Sony's and the PSN's future. 

In happier news, apparently Portal 2 is amazing. I wouldn't know since I need 2 copies of all co-op games to be able to enjoy them with the husband. Sad to say new games weren't in the budget this month so I'm having to live vicariously through the Portal 2 discussion thread. Stop by to share your impressions and feel good moments with the rest of the Forums.

I also don't know about the new Mortal Kombat game that came out this month, but thankfully there's a whole thread dedicated to discussing the finer points of ripping out each others spleens.

If Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is more your bag then be sure to check out de Bloo's Ranbat Tournament. The winners bracket has already concluded, congrats to de Bloo for organizing/winning. The losers bracket is still ongoing and looks to be just as heated.

There's also a pretty active thread for the Gears of War 3 beta to join for people who are into that kind of thing.

Are you a fan of the new C Blog series Debatoid? Then it might interest you to know that you con contribute ideas for upcoming debates in the Debatoid Topic thread.

Remember text adventure games? Yeah, me neither, but that isn't stopping SchildConstruct from creating one. He's invited people to take a survey and play test his upcoming offering. Worth looking into if you wanna see what really counts as "old school" gaming.



Not gonna lie, I'm a fan of baked goods. Apparently so is culinary goddess Bec. This month she showed us the amazing cupcakes pictured above as well as the most epic Angry Birds cake mankind has ever laid eyes upon.

Have you had any especially epic moments while playing a game this month? Ever? Check out the Random Awesome Game Moments thread and share them with us.

Electronica is a thing and if you share a love of all music made by machines then The Glorious Thread of Electronica is the place to be this month.

Looking for a fun way to use and abuse your photo related skills? Head over to the What is Icarus pointing at? thread and try your hand at shopping our moderator IcarusKills into horribly embarrassing scenarios.

There's also the Paint Album Cover thread where people make MS Paint drawings of famous album covers then have others try to guess which one it is.



WatDoom is a thing that is happening all over the forums right now, thanks in no small part to the dedicated efforts of Gobun and the rest of the Forum Gif Bomb Squad. This became such a big deal that it even leaked over onto the front page. Way to go guys!

That concludes this month in Forum news. Thanks as always to my wonderful Mod team and the general awesomeness that is the Forum community. Join us next month when Mxyzptlk exposes some dark secrets and I do some finger painting.

Get your knives out: A list of the best pointy objects in the business

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)...more

Samus and Sagat: Prepping for Street Fighter V and Super Metroid II

A lot of you told me that you really liked Samus and Sagat episode one. Thank you so much! Even more of you told me that you almost didn't watch the show at all because you thought it was a cartoon. Sorry about that! To be 1...more

Dem bones: The best skeletons in video games

I've been playing tons of Grim Fandango ever since the remastered version came out a few days ago, and it's left me with skeletons on the brain... and in the closet. This led me to thinking about more skeletons in games. Ther...more
