Any excuse to talk about Tearaway is a great thing

Have 9 hours to kill? Every SNES title screen in alphabetical order

Remember that every NES title screen in alphabetical order video that was just under three hours long? Well the creator of that video did a sequel focusing on every Super Nintendo game, and this one is over nine hours long. NINE! HOURS! LONG! That's some insane dedication.

The co-founder of Devolver Digital has some words for Peter Molyneux photo
The co-founder of Devolver Digital has some words for Peter Molyneux
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Yesterday, Destructoid ran a story in which designer Peter Molyneux shared his belief that the indie craze will disappear. Specifically, he said that what we're seeing is just a cycle, and that "it won't last."

Many people disagreed with Molyneux's sentiments, including Devolver Digital co-founder Mike Wilson. In an open letter sent to Destructoid, Wilson wrote that indies are making games "because they love it. They aren't competing in secrecy but rather openly collaborating, lifting one another up and inspiring one another. Gamejams!!! And while many of them are doing incredibly well financially, that's not the point, or certainly not the main point. Which we think is what is quite different than the past, at least to our eye."

Read on for the full letter from Mike Wilson.
