We can't stop playing the hilarious multiplayer web game Agar.io


Today's best thing
Apr 29
// Jordan Devore
What're we up to in the Destructoid office today? Agar.io. It's a free web game in which you are a blob trying to absorb other blobs so that you can become the biggest, baddest blob around. Hey, that sounds like Osmos! But he...

'The Way Home' by Magic Sword
Apr 29
// Jordan Devore
I've stopped playing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, but the soundtrack hasn't gone anywhere -- well, not all of it. I said I'd play the songs on repeat until I grew sick of them and, yep, that has mostly happened. But these t...

May's Games with Gold are kind of the same old


One month in a smokey pool hall was too long

When I cover these Games with Gold posts, sometimes I'll comment how the announcements are akin to flipping the page on a cute animal calendar and finding out what kitty, or puppy, or baby duck in a bonnet the next four weeks...

Lady Hunk and Rachel are prepped for Resident Evil: Revelations 2

Apr 23
// Jordan Devore
The Resident Evil series has pulled some mighty strange stuff over the years that I've just come to accept. Hell, I'm practically numb to the silliness by now. Short shorts-wearing Lady Hunk? An oversized teddy bear with a gu...

Think about the weirdest thing you saw today. Veryman.Expert is probably weirder. It's a browser-based god game, so to speak, about creating men. There are no losers, ever. You can adjust your man's movements -- a touch of Le...

Offer ends tomorrow
Mar 20
// Jordan Devore
Amazon is giving away 34 Android apps today, and some of them aren't crap. Take a look! Consider nabbing Kingdom Rush Origins if you're into tower defense, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 if you're curious about the animatronic jump-scare craze. Familiar titles like Cut the Rope and World of Goo are in here too, as is the largely unknown but lovable-as-heck Deep Under the Sky.

Microsoft is launching Windows 10 this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages, which is good to know but not all that inherently interesting. This, on the other hand, sure is: during the operating system's first year, it'l...

This is unexpected. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is rolling out a free update across all platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) on March 31, 2015 that's large enough to warrant a name change. Going forward, the game wil...

Tactical cyberpunk game Syndicate free on Origin


RIP Bullfrog
Mar 06
// Jordan Devore
Remember that time Starbreeze and EA brought Syndicate back as a first-person shooter? Wait, no, forget I ever mentioned it. I'm sorry. Instead, nab the original Bullfrog Productions-developed Syndicate for free through Origin's On the House. Once the game is in your library, it'll stay there, and this is a good one to have.
