I have this thing about breath. I'm not so concerned about those that just had coffee or ate roasted garlic. It's more about the people with the breath that lets you know that they just don't bother to brush. That breath. Th... more
EVE Fanfest is an amazing event already, but this year's sounds like it's going to be completely nuts. The craziest thing they're doing is probably staging an event called Eve of Destruction, where MMA fighter Gunnar &ld... more
The talk of our office chat room this morning has undoubtedly been Orteil's Game Idea Generator -- a tool that's exactly what it sounds like but no less delightful. You should try it out.
Some of my favorites so far:

Leave it to the talented Kodykoala to come up with something like ... this. Yup, it's Princess Peach riding a Chain Chomp inspired by that Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" music video. It's impressive, if not a little disturbing. ... more
Iraq, what are you even doing? If you're trying to make me laugh, you've done well.
Check out this roundup of Iraqi game bootleg cover art over at RocketNews24. These are strange. I mean, look at Shadow of the Colossus.... more
Former Destructoid Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester left us years ago, but even today his presence is felt on the site. This morning, he linked to what was originally thought to be a hysterical bug in The Wolf Among Us that you'v... more
At Unite Japan 2014, Oculus CEO Palmer Luckey joked that maybe Oculus needed an Oculus-chan following a presentation that featured Unity's mascot, Unity-chan. Then, the internet took over.

A third-person shooter in which combatants are humans pretending to be airplanes -- this is Cult of the Wind. Despite the usual fears that something like this will lose its audience not long after launching, I'm so charmed b... more
We come across all sorts of dumb things while looking for gaming related content everyday here at Destructoid. Usually we post the stupidest thing in our office chat, and it typically just stays there never to be seen by the ... more
As in years past, Mega64 made some videos for the Game Developers Conference. This year in particular was really special, as they were able to get Ken "Father of PlayStation" Kutaragi himself to be involved. The team had a t... more
Crowdsourcing funding for your game has been all the rage the past couple of years. We know full well how everything comes off from the audience's side, but what do the developers go through?

Today's that special day in the year where everyone likes to lie and mess with people's heads. Some are better than others, so let's take a look at what we think were the best ones of this year's April Fools festivities.
Out of all the jokes, Octodad with 32 dads is the one I think that really needs to happen. Come on, you know you want it too. more
What would you do if you knew you could not fail? Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today. That's what the focus of this week's Dumb Idiot Ideas is the power of the cloud, and how it will change all of us as people. more
In My Girl (from Soda Drinker Pro and Vivian Clark creator Will Brierly) you play as Thomas J in a coming-of-age story that's... well, I'm sure you've seen the 1991 movie. In this game you are Macaulay Culkin's character. So you know what happens.
Spoiler: It's bummertime. Even the MIDI version of the song "My Girl" adds to the bummer vibe.
You can play My Girl right here. more
Today, I can finally talk about my impressions of Batman: Arkham Knight, which I saw back and GDC. There’s some new stuff about Watchdogs that’s actually gotten my attention, Sonic has Zelda-themed DLC, Fulgore... more
I loooooove capsule toys. Known in Japan as gashapon, these overpriced plastic trinkets can be found in every corner of my home. I have a miniature Sega console collection in a glass case. I decorated one of my bathrooms in P... more
The big news of the week was Facebook's surprising purchase of Oculus VR, the company behind the crowdfunded virtual reality headset Oculus Rift. Naturally, the denizens of the Internet (over)reacted unfavorably, and Minecraf... more
Two seconds. Two seconds into this launch trailer for Goat Simulator and I was already laughing.
It's coming to Steam on April 1, 2014 because that's only fitting. To be clear, yes, Goat Simulator is an actual, real game eve... more
So when I watched the Goat Simulator trailer I was so focused on the actual gameplay that I glazed over the soundtrack. Thankfully I came across the extended version of the trailer song and I haven't been able to stop replaying it.
Yes, I know. I'm not right in the head. more
There was a wonderful spread of strange and interesting indie games at GDC, including a special exhibit called Alt.Ctrl, focusing on projects that made use of unusual controllers. Bill Zoeker screwed around with these for a ... more
I was only able to catch bits and pieces of the Independent Games Festival awards and the Game Developers Choice awards last week, but I did manage to see what must have been one of the evening's best moments: Kutaragi's Way... more
A new alternative controller exhibit made its debut at GDC this year. Amazing selections from 14 independent teams were shown at ALT.CTRL.GDC on the GDC show floor yesterday, and every one of them had my imagination running. ... more
Ninja Sex Party and Egoraptor's latest music video single from their Starbomb album is all about Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter having a rap battle. It's mostly a battle about their dicks and stuff.
The animation this time around was done by Spazkidin3D, and if you like Egoraptor's style of comedy than you'll really enjoy the stuff Spazkid does. more
Japan has teamed up with Adidas and The Pokemon Company for a promotional campaign leading up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. That Mary Sue pocket monster is taking advantage of the weight its shed over the years to lead Jap... more
A reddit user found a website where you can pay people a very small amount of money to read whatever scripts you want. So he paid a couple of guys to do the Team Rocket theme from the Pokemon cartoons. Japanator even did a feature about them, and you can check that out here.
It's all very stupid, yet made me laugh like an idiot. more
I laughed three times during this trailer. The patient being beaten in the face with his own heart, the distended eyeballs, and the demented writhing at 43 seconds. If you have a friend or family member with an iPad, buy the... more
Now that the secret's out for Frog Fractions (unless you haven't played it already in which case, you know what you must do), creator Jim Crawford will have a heck of a time surprising us with a sequel. But I think he can do... more
You don't need to have played GTA Online to enjoy this animation by Jameserton, but it'll hit much closer to home if you have done so. It's funny, and I say that as someone who goes into these game parodies with a sometimes unreasonable amount of skepticism.
That dramatic music during the bomb sequence? The best. more
A long, long time ago, there was a tiny country between that country over there and this counter over here. In this country was a strange hotel. This hotel’s speciality was “magical onion soup.”

Sanctum developer Coffee Stain Studios has written about the birth of Goat Simulator, a hilarious thing that at one point wasn't going to be a real game until enough of us demanded it. We needed this. "After a day or two we ... more
Naughty Dog designer Peter Javidpour made a little flash game about Rambo. He released Rambo: Last Blood a couple of years ago actually, but it's making the rounds again after the release of that horrible piece of crap Rambo ... more
Well, this is a fun concept: Dark Souls II as an '80s cartoon. You know how much we love those.
Now, I don't want to oversell the video -- the execution doesn't go quite as far as I'd like -- but it's so, so close. There are tons of terrific little touches, however, and that final line pushed me over the edge into "I need to share this" territory. And here we are.

Domino's "pizza" is terrible junk I wouldn't eat if I'd ingested a poison for which the only cure was the exact blend of possum endocrine system and Nickelback sweat found in Domino's pizza.
That said, Domino's Japan is at le... more

The above video is a demonstration of Goodbye Solid Ground, a game where the player rescues cats from a deteriorating environment by throwing them through a portal. It should probably have come with a seizure warning, or at ... more
A black dolphin lives in every one of us. The dolphin represents our soul as a comic creature, and Seadelphica explores how closely our souls and high technology are connected. It also looks like a mindf*ck. Seriously -- you ... more
Twitch Plays Pokemon is a huge deal. So huge, in fact, it's been causing enormous stress on Twitch's chat system across the entire service. On Sunday Twitch actually moved the channel off of their normal servers onto a dedica... more
The good folks at Giant Bomb linked us to this fascinating blog on game foliage. Alex Swaim's Video Game Foliage is my newest Tumblr follow because it's so weird and specific that I'll always want to hear what ... more

There are so many popular YouTube creators that I just plain cannot connect with as a viewer, try as I might, but JonTron isn't one of them. Oh how he makes me laugh. I'm happy to see him making videos again and this latest ... more
It could have easily been a disaster, but it's quite the opposite. I cannot stop watching.
Twitch Plays Pokemon is a collaborative stream in which Pokemon Red/Blue is played by people in chat. Button inputs (e.g., "up," "down... more
In Valentine's Day spirit Shutterstock tasked an artist with turning some of its stock photos into mock up paintings for videogame romance novels, full of Austen-tatious fonts and a creepy Princess Peach. I'm not sure why, but I guess it's a novel idea.
The Duck Hunt one was out of left field, too.

The thing many of us desperately wanted to happen is going to: Coffee Stain Studios has relented and will turn its humorous Goat Simulator concept into a real game. Or was this -- putting the idea out there and seeing if peo... more
You can find all sorts of stuff on eBay. I like finding rare games and seeing if I can get a good deal (I'm currently still trying to snag a copy of Die Hard Arcade for Sega Saturn for under $30) but sometimes some deals just... more
GameStop Italy is offering a pre-order kit for inFamous Second Son that includes two cans of Red Bull and glow-in-the-dark condoms. Yes, really.
In the words of Max Scoville, "Infamous: Second Skin, so you don't have a Second Son."
And, honestly, this is a more useful pre-order bonus than in-game jackets for Delsin.
