Fashion Alert: Who Wore It Better?

The Daisy-Dukes-and-a-'Beater look is back in a big way this season! Who's rocking the outfit better, Funky Kong or Poison?

Hey gang! Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday, but there wasn't a whole lot of news -- so here's a rundown of today's big news, including yesterday's big ol' Nintendo Direct, that new realistic medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Xbox One's upcoming documentary series on the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Atari 2600 game. No, seriously.

Hey gang! Here's your Destructoid news update for this Thursday. I dabbled in some non-gaming news, I hope you don't mind. There are a lot more exciting movie trailers this week than there are game trailers.

The news: Fallout 4 details leak, Elder Scrolls Online gets a release date, SOMA looks creepy, The Walking Dead Season 2 gets a trailer, Call of Duty: Ghosts gets wolf DLC, and there are trailers for Edge of Tomorrow and Jupiter Ascending, both of which look interesting. There are rumors about Jason "Khal Drogo" Momoa being cast in Zak Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman movie, and Christopher Nolan's Interstellar gets a website and a logo.

Hey gang! Here's today's Dtoid Show news-snack. I round-up some of the trailers and news to come out of the VGX abomination this weekend, as well as the rumored Alien: Isolation, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes' release date, and Doom's 20th birthday.

[Update 2: It's all over! We had a blast, and thank you for tuning in. If you missed it, I'm gonna try to get an archive up. Unfortunately, we had the cameras rolling several hours before we were live, and the entire setup got recorded. Normally it's easy to trim this out, but that's only allowed on videos two hours or less. In the meantime, here's DMX on a horse.]

As I imagine you've heard, tomorrow is SpikeTV's 2013 "VGX" Awards Show and I'd like to invite you to join myself, Steven Hansen, and Ben Pack as we remotely heckle presenters, critique the amount of dubstep in new game trailers, and fondly remember the time Geoff Keighley's Twitter account was apparently hacked and he kept Tweeting about giraffes. 

As tomorrow is a Saturday, we shall be drunk. In addition to that, I have a stack of download codes to give away courtesy of Midnight City for their new games Slender: The Arrival, The Bridge, and Blood of the Werewolf. [Update: we also have codes for Hotline Miami, Shadow Warrior, Gomo, Final Exam, and the Crusader Kings 2: Sons of Abraham expansion pack]

All this happens at 3-6PM Pacific Time (-8:00 GMT) on our YouTube channel.

Be there, or uh, go do something more productive instead.

Which Console watches more Porn, BF4 Fixes & FFVIII Hair photo
Which Console watches more Porn, BF4 Fixes & FFVIII Hair
by Max Scoville

Hey hey! This video was supposed to go up yesterday afternoon, but a series of unfortunate events resulted in it going up very late last night, and then internet witchcraft prevented me from putting up a post. So, if you don't mind a little reheated day-old news, here ya go. CUT ME SOME SLACK I'M DOING THIS ALL ON MY OWN.

We got an amazing exclusive scoop thanks to Pornhub, EA has told DICE to fix Battlefield 4 before making any new DLC, cops busted up a dude's World of Warcraft livestream after a phony tip, Riot Games' contracts with eSports iJocks apparently prevent them from streaming Fat Princess and Final Fantasy VIII is now on Steam.

Hey guys! Here's another newsy-type update, which I hope can become a regular thing. It's not quite the Destructoid show you're used to, but you can see we've made some progress. I swear to god, Destructoid has been cursed by...

The Destructoid Show's Glorious, Bumbling Return

Hey gang! Well, the plan was to do a big proper episode of The Destructoid Show, live, at 3:30 on the dot. However, things didn't go quite according to plan. After an hour of technical difficulties, we managed to go live. It...

As you might've heard yesterday, I am back with Destructoid as full-time Video Warlock. And so, I've wasted absolutely no time whatsoever abusing my newfound power, and here's the first episode of my new show: Sexy Video Game News Hole. It is exactly what it sounds like.

Today, we discuss the absurd contraption rigged up for the VR Japan Oculus Rift game jam this last weekend, which was basically a robotic arm and a Fleshlight rigged up as a peripheral for the popular virtual reality headset.

(I'm sorry, Mom.)

The Destructoid Show: The Next Generation
by Max Scoville

Well, well. Look who's come crawling back. ME.

If you guys have been keeping track, The Destructoid Show came to an end two months ago, and I announced my departure from Revision3 about one month ago. And today, in an effort to further confuse my extended family who were never entirely sure what my job was to begin with, I'm proud to announce that I am back with Destructoid, full-time, as their head warlock of video-related crap -- which will include, in some form, a resurrection of the Destructoid Show.

To kick this off, please join me this Friday at 3:30 PM Pacific time (-8:00 GMT) on YouTube for a LIVE Destructoid Show. Y'know, for old time's sake.

The Destructoid Show's Final Episode photo
The Destructoid Show's Final Episode
by Max Scoville

Well, guys. This is it. The final episode. Tara and I run down a whole bunch of our favorite moments from hosting this insane show.

I've been involved in this site for a bit over three years, and it's been nothing short of life-changing. Thank you guys so much for watching our show, and even if you didn't watch it, thanks for being a part of such an amazing community. Tara and I might be gone from Destructoid, but we'll still be doing plenty of video stuff on Rev3Games, so come say hello. And, of course, The Dtoid YouTube channel is still alive and well, as I'm sure you guys are all well aware.

Once again, thank you. Thank you to Niero and company for giving us a chance to do something so cool, which has somehow turned into a full-blown career path, and thanks to all of you guys who supported us along the way. I'm pretty good at puns and bad jokes, but effectively conveying how grateful I am for where this amazing video game website has taken me is a bit beyond my grasp. In a nutshell: I love you all more than pizza.

I have to go now, my planet needs me. (Also, I'm probably gonna start crying.)

Unleash the Dogs of War! And Some New PS Vitas, too! photo
Unleash the Dogs of War! And Some New PS Vitas, too!
by Max Scoville

Here's today's Destructoid Show -- sort of an odd one, since it's the last time we'll be reading the news to you. Of course, we'll have a big huge send-off episode on Friday, but this is the last we'll be doing a standard news show. Thankfully, we actually have some news to discuss.

For starters, Sony announced some cute little PS Vita slims, as well as PS Vita TV, which seems like an odd device. The guys who made Far Cry 3 have decided to make something that's the opposite of Far Cry 3, which apparently is a whimsical JRPG called Child of Light. The new Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer has a dog biting a guy in a helicopter, so I shout about it a bunch. Not to be out-dogged by Activision, Ubisoft also has a war game with a dog in it, called Valiant Hearts: The Great War, but it's all artsy and emotional.
