As some of you may or may not have heard, this is officially my last day with Destructoid. Man ... I can barely type that without getting upset. I am starting a new job next week at GolinHarris as a writer for Nintendo. It is...


This is the most personal post I have ever written for Destructoid. At first, I was nervous about sharing this much about my life. But then I realized this is a story I really wanted to tell. I thought that if this very perso...


The relationship between movies and videogames is quite the interesting one. Although they are separate entities, both movies and videogames have profoundly influenced each other over the years. Outside of the obvious adaptat...


It took me a while to play the original Assassin’s Creed after the game released. The good-but-not-great reviews coupled with gameplay that didn’t look interesting to my Super Mario Galaxy-obsessed self just made ...




Destructoid's new obsession Super Hexagon has been downloaded approximately 45,000 times, according to creator Terry Cavanagh. This is encouraging news, as not only is Mr. Cavanagh a talented designer, Super Hexagon itself is...


And that release date is ... February 5, 2013! Well, at least in North America. A European release is set for March. If you are a fan of the series (I am!), mark your calendars! Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will be released on...


As most of you know, Borderlands 2 released earlier this week. Heck, you are probably playing it right now! Look out! A Skag! Whew, that was close. Nice shot! We wrote a ton of great features to celebrate this big, exciting r...


Okay, that headline made no sense, but an interrupting "OBJECTION!" joke has to appear somewhere in a post about Ace Attorney, right? This hot trailer from the new 3DS Ace Attorney game just came out of TGS, and, boy, does i...


Direct from TGS 2012 comes this new trailer for upcoming 3DS game Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney! And it has actual gameplay! When I first heard Capcom and Level 5 were teaming up to make this game, I thought I was dreami...


If you have not yet played last year's gorgeous indie RPG To the Moon, today is your chance! For one day only, the game is on sale at GOG for only $3.99 (that's six dollars off the original price!). I don't want to say too mu...


Nintendo just released a pair of new videos for upcoming Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends and they look fiiiiiiiine (I said that while holding my hand on my mouth and leaning back all cool like). The main gameplay video above ...


If you have been dying to play a new HD Call of Duty game on a Nintendo system, your dream has finally come true! Black Ops II is officially coming to the Wii U. Black Ops II will feature second-screen gameplay, where player ...


[Update: Trailer for Nintendo TVii has been added.] At its Wii U press event this morning. Nintendo announced "Nintendo TVii," an interactive way of watching T.V. on your Wii U GamePad. In the demo, the Nintendo representati...


Tomorrow morning at 10AM EDT (7AM PDT), Nintendo is hosting a preview event in New York City and is expected to make a huge announcement (or most likely announcements) regarding the Wii U. It is pretty obvious that it will be...


This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Sam & Max series. It was 1987 when the very first Sam & Max comic was released, inspiring one of the greatest and most charming adventure game series ever. Everyone is celeb...


If someone came up to me and said: "Chad, I have a game for you that is like a mixture of Super Metroid, Emperor's New Groove, Ikaruga, and Final Fight!" I would probably punch them in the face, flail my arms in the air, and ...


Zackasaurus! I am a little in love with Super Time Force here at PAX. The game is a retro-looking shooter in the same vein as Contra, with a great twist involving time travel. You can read all about how much we all love the s...


Okay? That was my first reaction when Warren Spector compared his upcoming Epic Mickey 2 to his legendary masterpiece Deus Ex in a PAX sit down I had with him earlier today. Actually, it was more of a huh? But then the outspo...


While here at PAX, I had a chance to sit down with a new section of upcoming platformer Epic Mickey 2. These just released screens show off the new section of the game that I got to play. Based on Frontier Land in Disneyland,...


As great as the Professor Layton games are (they are really great!), the last four released on the Nintendo DS have been very similar. While the art direction, puzzle-solving gameplay, and surprisingly emotional stories have ...


There is a surprising amount of great cosplay at PAX. People walk around in some pretty elaborate and sometimes beautiful outfits. While all impressive, most of it is the same thing you normally see: a Lara Croft here, a Mast...


Last night, a downtown Los Angeles gallery hosted Art of the Assassin, a collection of art pieces inspired by Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed III. I was lucky enough to attend, and had a really great time! I got to play a...


I was never a fan of flamethrowers in videogames. I am not sure exactly where this started, but I have a pretty good idea: When I used to play Contra III: The Alien Wars with friends, I would do anything to avoid getting the ...


This post brought to you by the letter "P." During their press conference, Sony just revealed a brand new platformer for the PlayStation 3 called Puppeteer. Looking very similar in style to LittleBigPlanet, the game is a ver...


Not much has been revealed yet, but Sony just announced a new game in the Killzone franchise -- Killzone Mercenary -- during their gamescom press conference. It will be exclusive to the PS Vita. More details promised on the PS Blog later today. Excited?


We have already seen some of the absolutely gorgeous Assassin's Creed III naval warfare gameplay footage at this past E3, but this newly released trailer makes everything look even more fancy and glorious. As a fan of the As...


The other day I was playing my new obsession Spelunky and, of course, died while trying to complete the dreaded ice caves. It was late and I really needed to go to bed. Instead of turning off the game -- or even thinking abou...


With recent news that the leaked "Xbox 720" dev kit pictures and specs may actually be -- gasp! -- genuine, what are your thoughts? Here are the facts: The console is codenamed "Durango," the dev kit allegedly has 8 GB of mem...


I can’t throw a javelin. Well, I guess I technically can. But I can’t throw a javelin very well. Not even close to the level of one of the incredible athletes in the Olympic Games. In fact, I can’t do anythi...


It's a known fact that the most annoying enemies in videogames are the flying kind. They are the worst. When you are about to jump over a bottomless pit, they are always there to hit you right in the face. When you are equipp...


The news that Namco Bandai would be teaming up with Project Sora to develop the next game in the beloved Smash Bros. series was unexpected, but very exciting. Namco Bandai is a talented developer responsible for some pretty m...


This isn't a particularly exciting holiday tale. It doesn't involve an abominable snowman, or misfit toys, or an elf that wants to be a dentist. It is just a simple story about something that happened on one dark and unassuming 4th of July night many years ago. A night that I will never forget for the rest of my life.


I have a very loud laugh. Some people say it is infectious, but I have been paranoid about it my entire life. When I am sitting in a movie theater, sometimes I laugh so hard that people think something is wrong with me. I eve...


After yesterday's official announcement of Metal Gear Solid 5 (woot!), I started thinking about how there really aren't any bad games in the entire, long-running Metal Gear series. All of the Solid games are near perfect, the...


Before E3, I posted Destructoid's annual E3 predictions. It was an epic competition for the ages. A competition even more brutal than the Thunderdome, Hunger Games, and Battle Royale COMBINED! I asked a videogame analyst (Jes...


Friend of Destructoid and Weekly Geek host Chris Furniss, along with many other remarkably talented artists (including Destructoid's own Ashley Davis!), recently put together a book of videogame art pieces entitled "31 Days o...


Rayman Legends is the direct Wii U-exclusive sequel to the beautiful, gorgeous, sublime 2D platformer Rayman Origins that was released last year. The good news if you were a fan of Rayman Origins: Rayman Legends is even more ...


Huh. That was my first reaction after playing ZombiU for the Wii U at Nintendo's booth during E3. Huh. Now, "huh" usually has a negative connotation, but that is not necessarily the case with this particular game. The "huh" i...


One of my favorite things to do at E3 is visit the smaller publisher and developers and try out their games. Usually creative and made with such a large amount of heart, the smaller games at E3 are always a breath of fresh ai...


I haven't made a final decision as to what my favorite game at E3 2012 is yet, but Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the 3DS is right up there. When DreamRift's game was announced a couple of months ago, I was shocked. Inste...
