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

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

Farts 'N' Crafts
Here's this week's Farts 'N' Crafts! I'm a little burnt-out following GDC, so today's topic involves children attacking a goose with a broom. If you'd like to hang this on your wall, you can buy a print here. If you'd like to make your own picture of kids fighting a geese, go right ahead and drop it in the comments here, or shoot me an email.   read

Here we are again, my darlings. This week, Max Scoville, Jonathan Holmes, and Conrad Zimmerman discuss getting old, The Offspring, the collapse of society in the coming decades, and the fact that Spider-Man was touched as a child by a man named Skip. No, for real. Also, video games are mentioned briefly. Here's your direct download link, and here's the ol' iTunes link.   read

DTOID News
GDC has come to a close, and it's certainly been a busy week for news. Sony announced Project Morpheus, their entry into the virtual reality race, as well as some crazy eye-tracking tech. The second Oculus Rift development ki...   read

Super Time Force
Literally the first thing I did at GDC this year was sit down with Capy Games president Nathan Vella and talk about their upcoming games Super Time Force and Below, as well as his hosting duties at this year's IGF awards. Also, a woman in the background knocked over a lamp and broke it, which I thought was pretty funny.   read

Farts 'N' Crafts
Hey gang! Here's a hot and messy GDC edition of Farts 'N' Crafts, brought to you by liquor and cocktail napkins, and also cocktails, made with liquor. Sonic The Hedgehog is covered in bandages and scarves in Sonic Boom, so I drew him barfing up SpaghettiOs. Because cocktails.   read

Everyone’s off playing Titan Souls or Darkfall or whathaveyou, so news this week is a lot of non-news. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt has been delayed, which sucks, but apparently won’t derail Cyberpunk 2077. Sony ...   read

Dumb Idiot Ideas
Man, you guys hear about Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn? That's a pretty great idea, but here are some even better ones, like a game where James Van Der Beek's head is a Hydro Thunder boat, or where the cast of Love Actually beats each other to death.   read

PSA: If you're looking forward to Ground Zeroes, don't watch The Phantom Pain's trailer

Dying to hear all the dirt but don't want to take the time to read my full preview of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes?

In any case, here's a quick rundown of some classic Metal Gear elements that you won't be finding in the latest release.   read

Hands-on with MGS V
Considering that the series just celebrated its 25th anniversary, it might seem a little odd that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is only the fifth game in the series. However, if you’re counting Peace Walker, it...   read

A couple of weeks ago, Hamza and I got a chance to screw around in Turtle Rock and 2K's Evolve. Hamza wrote up his thoughts on the game right here, and I got to interview one of the developers about the game. But how did Hamza and I really feel? Well, watch the dang video.   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.
