Clementine takes the lead
Telltale Games has today lifted the lid on The Walking Dead: Season Two. Another installment of utterly depressing zombie sorrow is coming out way. It is a time to be both excited and fearful. There will be so much sad! As s... read feature

Defective Vision
Batman: Arkham Origins had to endure a lot of cynicism from the peanut gallery as it rushed headlong from sudden announcement to pre-Christmas release. It's hardly surprising, too -- after the Arkham series earned high c... read feature

Graphics thralls, unite and be delighted!
Oct 24
The Killzone series has always pushed graphical horsepower as one of its biggest selling points, and it's hard not to get excited at all the pretty lights and motion blur. As such, gorgeous gif images tend to crop up whenever... read

Day One: Garry's Incident developers censoring criticism


Exploiting YouTube's copyright protection is kind of poopy, guys
Oct 21
Wild Games Studio, the company behind Day One: Garry's Incident, is currently caught up in a controversy surrounding criticism of its game on YouTube. Immensely popular PC game critic John "TotalBiscuit" Bain has accused the ... read
Sonic boon!
While it's still popular to suggest Sonic the Hedgehog hasn't had a decent game in decades, this generation alone has at least shown significant improvements. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 was an enjoyable, if controversial game, whil... read feature

Don't read any reviews ... except this one!
How do you review a game like The Stanley Parable? To describe any one part of it is to risk its ruination. To detail what it has to say about game design, the illusion of choice, and the psychology of the gamer is to tell yo... read feature


Oh look, it's time for more Indigo Prophecy! This time around, we get racist in a bookstore (again), we play basketball by watching basketball and pressing buttons, we push a wheelchair, and we play Simon Says while cutscenes have all the fun.  Indigo Prophecy thrills us all.  read feature


There has been much talk about how the gaming world is too toxic, too negative, too full of anger and rage. Jimquisition argues there might be just the right amount of it. The issue is in how it's used.  Anger is a powerful weapon, but like all powerful things, it must be handled with care. Venom can be harnessed to our benefit, provided we be careful not to let it spill into our own faces. read feature

Must stop playing hack n' slash RPGs
For some reason, I keep thinking hack n' slash RPGs will make for a good video. I keep getting it wrong, or at least picking the wrong games. This is Iesabel, a game that somehow got greenlit for Steam, despite it being utterly rubbish.  Check it out. It's not good. read feature

Too legitty to quitty!
With Pokemon X and Y now out for public consumption, you're probably curious as to what the best Pokemon are for your silky pleasures. Fortunately, Jim Sterling is here to drop knowledge bombs in yo' face, and tell which Pokemon are the most legit.  I know lots of things about Pokemon. Let me talk to you about Pokemon. read feature

Grab a mop and get sloppin'!
Hey there, cool friends! I've got more Indigo Prophecy coming to you, but right now I'm having a go at pulling my own little YouTube channel up by its bootstraps and experimenting with things. What yummy fun! Here, I play Vi... read feature

This is racist, right?
On today's thrilling adventure into David Cage's mental brainspace, we kick the crap out good friends, we get claustrophobic while trying to do our job, and we get very quiet and guilty when lots and lots of racism happens.  Also, crap stealth and some other things.  read feature

Froakie dokie!
Certain game series can get away without making significant changes to their formula -- in fact, there are some that would risk infuriating their fans if they did alter too much. Games like The Legend of Zelda, Street Fighter... read feature

My theory of a Deadman CD collection
In this thrilling installment of Indigo Prophecy, we drink water, play the guitar, punch a bag, play the guitar, and listen to more Theory of a Deadman. The fun literally never ends. It will never end. The fun is literally going on forever.  It's gonna move! read feature

Podtoid 273: Julia Child's Ghost Penis


Podtoid hits the Destructoid frontpage every Thursday!
Oct 10
Danny Baranowsky is in the house, back with the Podtoid gang by popular demand. The game composer is on hand to talk about Jonathan going face-down-ass-up, Conrad pottering about in the garden, and Julia Child scaring childre... read
Living my pawn's life
I fiddle with the temperature knob and get murderous as I play Quantic Dream's true classic, Indigo Prophecy. Laugh along as we murder people in bathrooms, interrogate distraught women, and listen to music about women doin' ya wrong. Oh Theory of a Deadman. You scallywags! read feature

Gamers: The Official Picture


This is basically what they are
Oct 09
Screenshot taken of the comment section of BF4Central.com, in a post about the upcoming Battlefield 4 Battle Packs.  As you can see, it manages to capture absolutely everything about the modern gamer in just two short statements. read
Best tutorial ever ... except kind of not
There probably won't be any more Legends of Dawn, because the game crashed while I was recording and took all the video with it. Buggy game, that is! Fortunately, we have a different legend for you, with Legends of Aethereus!  Enjoy the world's most thorough tutorial, and let's kill some Definitely-Not-Orcs! read feature

Jimquisition happens every Monday!
You were promised an episode on season passes, in the wake of Jimquisition complaining about downloadable content. There is a season for all things, and that season has come to pass. Here is a nice little bit of shouting on why season passes are ridiculous, and why it would behoove you to pass up on the bloody things. read feature

Show a little soul
It's hard to divorce David Cage, the public figure, from the games Quantic Dream makes. He is, after all, a man who put himself in Indigo Prophecy's tutorial, immortalized as the movie director he's always dreamed of being. T... read feature

Skittlers!
In what is easily my favorite Now Bloody Playing to date, I battle Skittlers and meet the best voice actors in the world, all with Legends of Dawn! I had a blast with this one, and you can expect to see much more of it in future. Way too much of it.  read feature

Podtoid 272: Horses Are Watching A Toy Masturbate


Podtoid hits the Destructoid frontpage every Thursday!

Rhymedown Spectacular: Cabin Fever


The brains behind Jimquisition and Zero Punctuation get lyrical

Oh look, more bloody poems for your damn eyeholes.  You are totally allowed to look at this video by clicking on it and watching it until completion. It's okay, I won't mind. I won't tell. read
You've got wang
Here's some Shadow Warrior to tide you over while our review is in the works. I go stab stuff up, look for glowing statues, and watch rabbits having sex. All in a day's work for this Stan Bush enthusiast!  We might do more of this one. Depends how much y'all like it.  read feature

Hydroeclectic
Sony has a stable of impressive top-tier game franchises -- Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, the kind of blockbuster productions every console needs to open eyelids among the mainstream users. I, however, will remember Sony's... read feature

Jimquisition happens every Monday!
Let's look for a playable woman protagonist in a videogame that doesn't rely on the same pool of restrictive stereotypes as every other playable woman protagonist. To do this, let's look at a fighting game from 1994. That one about the dinosaurs. Yes, that one. Because I damn well sure can't find many better example. Folks, be prepared ... to RAGE. read feature

So stupid
People keep talking about Cookie Clicker like it's the most amazing game yet, but don't get it. I don't get it. I don't get it. I don't get it. Click. read feature

Turkey buzzard vulture
Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers! Anyway, I played the demo. You can watch me play it, if you want.  read feature

I am sad now
Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire game.  I wish I could just be showing off how much fun this game is. I can't though. Now I'm sad in my face.  read feature

It is an experimental new Podtoid, as this week we recorded the questions segment live! Yes, the question part of the show was broadcast online and we answered queries in REAL TIME! It went of surprisingly well, too.  El... read
