Sometimes, when I check my email, I find wonderful things like messages from friends and family, beta invites, or announcements that something I ordered has shipped. Sometimes, I find a pile of press releases. Sometimes they'...   read

Today is Canada day. And since "Canada" sounds kind of, sort of like "Kaneda," the hero of Otomo Katsuhiro's groundbreaking cyberpunk manga-turned-anime Akira, that's reason enough for me to put on my favorite red jacket and talk about one of his favorite pieces of media ever... Japanese, Canadian, or otherwise.   read

In a lovingly overproduced developer diary, a couple of Sledgehammer bros ran down the exciting new gear in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, including this year's "game-changer," the exo-skeleton, and hyped some of their other groundbreaking innovations such as... as laser. If nothing else, there was an opening for a Mountain Dew joke.   read

The King of The Monsters is stomping his big dumb lizard feet all over the Playstation 3 this winter, but only in Japan. Bandai Namco hasn't really given us much else to go on for this game. Will it come out in the west? No idea, but the recent Godzilla movie from Legendary Pictures did pretty well, so who knows.   read

Sure, you could go watch the whole half-hour demo of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we saw at E3, but then you don't get to look at my pretty face. Also, an animal shows up at the end of this video! Can you guess what it is?    read

Of all the games we saw at E3, No Man's Sky is probably the most difficult to describe without sounding like we just came down from a mescaline trip. A procedurally-generated universe filled with millions of planets? Each with new and unique flora and fauna? Spaceships that shoot lasers? This is definitely a high concept game. Hopefully, the final product delivers, because it sounds cool as hell.   read

Here's some very flaccid news in the wake of E3 -- Destiny's Alpha is over, with a Beta next month. The game'll be a Sony exclusive in Japan. The new dude from Halo 5: Guardians has been named Agent Locke, and he'll be i...   read

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...   read

If you missed it last week, Bill and I started an all Dragon Ball let's-play/let's-bullshit-about series called Just Saiyan, since we spend most of our workdays arguing like twelve-year-olds about whether or not Vegeta is co...   read

Today on Tuesday Newsday, we go over two games that Brett Makedonski previewed, which have both been delayed, The Order: 1886 and The Evil Within. The new Battlefield is Hardline, seemingly a cops and robbers theme rather tha...   read

There's been a whole bunch of interesting stuff to talk about in the last week! Halo 5: Guardians has been announced for 2015, Far Cry 4 is coming this fall, Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction has been rebranded as Bombshell, Tom ...   read

It’s been quite a busy week of news, and here’s Max to shout moistly about it. Gamers who are short a hundred bucks got some great news this morning with the announcement of an Xbox One sans Kinect, for a somewh...   read

This week, I stop mucking around with condiments, pasta, and watercolors and just do a good old-fashioned drawing. The subject? Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf, star of The Witcher books and games. While drawing, I'm asked stupid questions by Bill Zoeker, who doesn't know anything about Witchers. Also, we eat very sour candies.   read

Tuesday Newsday: Star Wars, Nintendo at E3, Mad Max & Wolfenmelons

Put on your current events helmets, everyone, because Tuesday Newsday is here. Because it’d just be an Ephant Mon in the room if I didn’t address it, the Star Wars Episode VII cast has been revealed, following the bittersweet ...

Today for Farts 'N' Crafts, I got a little artsier than usual, and decided to "dabble" in watercolor to draw a fairly hot topic: a certain Japanese robot of the Gundam variety. Probably not my best, but watercolor, mecha, and talking at the same time are kind of tricky.   read

If you missed it, Hamza went up to Bungie's offices to play Destiny, and he wrote a bunch of words and stuff about it. I didn't actually feel like reading his articles, so I demanded he describe his time with the game out loud, and I wanted to make him uncomfortable, so I filmed the whole ordeal.   read

After almost two years of wringing my sweaty little hands and looking at screenshots like a schlub, I finally got to take Watch Dogs for a spin last week. After hacking into steam pipes and blowing up cars for two hours, I took a moment to chat with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin.    read

Tuesday Newsday
Here's your Tuesday Newsday for the last week or so! Today, we got a sexy new Dragon Age III: Inquisition trailer, some HD footage of Star Citizen out of PAX East, announcements of a new Fatal Frame on Wii-U as well as a bun...   read

Sorry for the delay! Here's this week's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts, in which I draw something I've drawn rather compulsively since I was ten years old -- Boba Fett. Also, I show off some of the pictures you guys drew of Pokémon and Call of Duty!    read

On today's hard-hitting debut episode of Tuesday Newsday, we cover some of the highlights from PAX East, like Cult of the Wind, where you run around pretending to be an airplane, or Rain World, where you're a big squishy slug...   read

Farts 'N' Crafts
In an effort to make myself relevant to teenagers everywhere, today's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts combines Pokémon and Call of Duty: Ghosts.Am I relevant now, teens? Hm?  *Puts on Kanye West™shutter-shades*   read

Dumb Idiot Ideas
This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead.    read

DTOID News
Hey gang! Here I am again, shouting about the dang news. Super Smash Bros. and Borderlands are making big piles of headlines, and The Last of Us is getting an HD re-release, so I guess we haven't seen the last of it just quite yet. Pokémon and Zelda are getting Monopolized, and The Evil Within is spooky.   read

Between the Alien: Isolation release date the new Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC that features the Predator, it seems like we have enough of an excuse this week to draw some Alien Vs. Predator fanart. Also, both involved parties are Draculas, because I felt like it. Man, this series is stupid. Hope you enjoy it!   read

April Fools!
I have to go to the zoo for the rest of the week because my step-sister is getting married (that's not a stupid joke, that's actually where the wedding's being held) so here's some funky-fresh two-day old news for you regarding April Fool's Day 2014, and the amount of harm it caused our collective psyche.   read

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.   read

Dtoid News Update!
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...   read

Podtoid 285: Child-Child

This week on Podtoid, we talked extensively about video games, as well as Cheech & Chong, Tim Schafer, and Macauley Caulkin. But we also suffered some major technical difficulties, so we lost about an hour of the conversation. We presse...

 
Alt.Ctrl.GDC
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 ...   read

Devolver Digital
You guys might've seen the charming, casual, laid-back interview I did with Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowry. Here's the interview I did with Devolver's co-founder Mike Wilson, which took place several shots of tequila later and got slightly weirder. We discuss the company's roots, it's future plans, and where they intend to go beyond game publishing and movie producing. Porn? Sure, why not.   read

About Max Scovilleone of us since 12:47 PM on 06.10.2009

I'm Max Scoville, and I'm in charge of making videos for Destructoid.

Videos is when you have a camera, but instead of just doing one picture, it does a lot of them, and there's also noises.

Then, you put it in a computer, and it's like you're watching something happen in real life! Videos can show hundreds of different colors and some videos even have music.

I like to do videos!

The end.
