I don't know why we talked about grocery stores on Just Saiyan

On our journey through Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure, Max accidentally pulled off a special move I didn't even know was in the game, which confounded and upset me. Also, we talked about The Warriors and grocery store subsidiaries because we have idiot brains.

Just Saiyan is back with more Dragon Ball Advance Adventure!

Max and I were finally able to resume our series of playing Dragon Ball games, and talking about which Dragon Ball characters are cool and sexually attractive. This is the first of many more to come, so enjoy... unless you don't like Dragon Ball, in which case; why did you click a post with "Saiyan" in the title?

We're playing 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand live on Twitch!

Max Scoville and I thought it would be a good idea to get drunk and play 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, so we decided we will do exactly that, and stream it for you to watch live. We're stupidly drinking Bacardi and Vitamin Water in Fiddy's honor.  You can watch the stream here, or in the video player below.

Destructoid's Twitch channel is ready to come back and get the diamond skull

As some of you may recall, we took a break from streaming on Twitch.TV. There was a lot of reasons for the temporary halt in production, but we're ready to make a comeback.  We've had some time to mourn our trail-blazing...

[Note: I am currently in process of rendering and uploading all of the videos to the playlist. If you run out and want more, be sure to check back soon.]

Max and I decided it would be a good idea to shoot a playthrough of the opening chunk of the new Tolkien-verse action game, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. As we got further into it, we realized that Shadow of Mordor is some of the most goddamn fun we've had in a game in a while. Above is the first video in our series. You can watch through the whole playlist if you want to see for yourself how badass this game is.

Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't
Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't "Taco" To Strangers
by Bill Zoeker

In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? 

(Yes. That's exactly what it is.)

Continuing our adventures through Skyrim; Max lays out the lengthy tale of what he did the day Dio died. Max's romp involved bottomless mimosas, a 40oz of malt liquor with a condom taped to it, and a deformed raccoon named 'Scary'. I don't really remember what I did that day. Probably listened to Dio.

Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos.

Master Chief Collection seems to deliver on most of its promises photo
Master Chief Collection seems to deliver on most of its promises
by Bill Zoeker

I recently got to check out Halo: The Master Chief Collection at an Xbox event, which gave me a big ol' happy, because I love me some sweet, sweet Covie-killing action. In 343 Industries' presentation, they spent half of the time talking about The Halo Channel, which seems neat if you're into that sort of thing, but it rather bores me. They also informed us that Halo 3 and Halo 4 are being up-scaled to 1080p, and touched up a bit with current-gen lighting effects and such.

The main focus of the Halo showing was, of course, Halo 2: Anniversary Edition. We saw a sample of the cutscenes from this overhaul, all of which are being redone, and which looks incredible compared to the original. We also got to put our hands on some of the multiplayer, which feels just like the original, with the exception of the Gungoose.

Playthrough: Destiny's Mars has cars, but not a single hot dog in sight
by Bill Zoeker

I've come down with a bad case of Dumpster Mono, and Max Scoville is terrified of germs, so he made me stay home so he could play Destiny and call it 'work'. But, without my responsible guidance, he got tricked into playing co-op with a man named Steve, who he thought he knew, but turned out to be a complete internet stranger. That doesn't stop Max from missing a lot of shots, and misreading pertinent information.

Videogames Are Stupid! Watch Dtoid's PAX panel right here photo
Videogames Are Stupid! Watch Dtoid's PAX panel right here
by Bill Zoeker

We decided for this year's PAX Prime panel, we would let our very own Max Scoville just do whatever dumb garbage he wanted to come up with. The result was: "Videogames Are Stupid: The Inherit Silliness of the Medium." Enjoy this recording, in which the people running the panel A/V equipment at PAX managed to blow out the audio, and listen to us wing an hour of talking about how absurdly stupid our favorite form of entertainment is.

Max and I were joined by: Brian Altano, of IGN and The Comedy Button; Anthony Carboni, of We Have Concerns; Adam Kovic, from Machinima's Inside Gaming, and Jack DeVries, formerly at IGN and now something of an Internet vagrant.

What's Up? Pokkén Tournament, Amazon buys Twitch, Donald Glover as Spider-Man & PAX Prime 2014
by Bill Zoeker

Max and Bill stop by to check in and drop some knowledge before heading of to Seattle for PAX Prime this week! Twitch got bought out by Amazon, not Google. Pokemon gets a fighting game, that you can only play in Japanese arcades. Bill gets hype on Donald Glover playing Spider-Man. And of course, our PAX Prime plans.

The Xbox One may have a new edge on the console market with the addition of ReddX. The app allows Xbox One users to browse Reddit on their consoles, with all of the fancy features of the Xbone. Max has some recommendations for cool sub-Reddits to check out, and what to avoid if you have a soul.

Max and I are coolin' out on the couch, talkin' about dumb old videogames. Samus gets a skimpy outfit in Smash Bros. Pokemon gets some teases, but Youkai Watch 2 looks cooler right now. And Hotline Miami might be getting a badass 1/6th scale figure.

What's Up: Life is Strange, eons of exploration in No Man's Sky, and the many skills of Claptrap
by Bill Zoeker

I've been buried in gamescom news this week, but I've surfaced to relay the stories I'm most excited about to you. Life is Strange is an unusual adventure game from the creators of Remember Me. No Man's Sky allegedly would take actual millennium to explore. And we finally see what Claptrap has up his sleeve in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. Turns out, it's a whole bag of tricks.

I felt genuine delight and a little confusion from Sony's gamescom press conference photo
I felt genuine delight and a little confusion from Sony's gamescom press conference
by Bill Zoeker

Sony came and delivered pretty much what I expected from their gamescom 2014 press conference. They had a boatload of indie games with interesting visual styles. They've continued their expansive trajectory of porting bigger indie games, with the announcement of DayZ coming to the PS4.

Of course they also announced slightly confusing and hard to believe hardware features with Share Play and the PlayStation TV's PS4 Remote Play. I used to raise a red flag when Sony promised cool hardware features, as they used to fall flat. However, they seem to be pulling off most of their offerings so far this generation.
