Everybody's Gone to the Rapture's soundtrack is being released on vinyl

I'm in love. This is what love is
Nov 05
// Joe Parlock
Plenty of people didn’t for various reasons, but I absolutely loved pretty much every second of The Chinese Room’s Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. One of the key things that made my time with that game so e...

Rise of the Tomb Raider is just a couple weeks from launch (for the Xbox One at least), so naturally we can expect a launch trailer to keep the hype train rolling. This one comes with an extra tidbit of news, past the new bit...

PlayStation 4 enabling DJs with Avicii music rhythm game Vector

In 2015, 1 out of 3 humans are DJs. This has led to global gridlock as necessary goods and services plummet under insistence that, "you should come see my set." The population rate is in decline, too, as more men become DJs;...

Lately, my background noise of choice for work has been the ocean. There are enough recordings available that you can afford to get real picky, real fast. I like the sound of distant waves crashing, not that distracting up-cl...

Check out that preview below. Longtime Destructoid fans might find it familiar for a couple reasons. For one, Final Fantasy VII's main theme is one of the most recognizable pieces from the old role-playing game. It played in ...

Are you patriotic enough for this Broforce ballad?

Urge to salute... rising!

// Jordan Devore
Broforce is almost done with Steam Early Access. The run-and-gun game starring action-movie lookalikes will see a full release for Windows, Mac, and Linux on October 15, 2015. Next up? Hell. Literally! In upcoming levels, the bros will wage war against Satan. Sounds about right. Until then, get ready to shed a few tears while watching this loving tribute to America.

Super Meat Boy composer refuses to license the original soundtrack for PS4, Vita release

Oct 03 // Kyle MacGregor
"You may also know that I did not do the soundtrack for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth," (another game created by Team Meat's Edmund McMillen) Baranowsky adds. "I made a decision a couple years ago to end my working relationship with them for many reasons that don’t really need to be listed here. I apologize for any disappointment this may cause my fans." Contrary to any rumors, Baranowsky maintains his broken relationship with Team Meat doesn't stem from creative differences, saying only "I didn't feel like the license fee and exposure through PSN they offered was enough to make me seriously consider accepting the deal. I decided to decline their offer. I wish them and the new artists the best of luck with the game." To replace the original soundtrack, Team Meat hired several musicians, including Ridiculon (The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth), David “Scattle” Scatliffe (Hotline Miami), and Laura Shigihara (Plants vs. Zombies). "That’s a pretty slick roster of artists," says Refenes. "We were lucky enough that they were all friends of ours and fans of Super Meat Boy. Their passion and love for the game can be heard in the work they put into making the game sound amazing. We’re honored to have them on the team for this version of Super Meat Boy." You can listen to a sample of the new score (Ridiculon's Hell Boss theme) right here. Super Meat Boy debuts on PSN Tuesday, October 6, free of charge to PS Plus subscribers.

Super Meat Boy is finally coming to Sony platforms next week, but the game PlayStation owners will experience is slightly different than the one that launched on Xbox 360 and PC in 2010. Writing on Team Meat's official b...

My 3DS gets so little use that whenever I do dig out the system, I forget that I downloaded that ridiculous Slowpoke theme. It goes "yaa!" whenever you scroll through your games and apps. "Yaa. Yaa. Yayayaya." It's great. Also great? The newly-dubbed Slowpoke Song.

A level called "All the costumes unlocked! :)" has been featured by Nintendo in Super Mario Maker, that tricks people into thinking the level will let them use some of the many unlockable costumes in the game. Instead plays the greatest song ever known to man.  I don't want to ruin the surprise, so just watch the video above and enjoy.
