100% Series Retrospective: Diablo

Things have been crazy at Destructoid since I became the Reviews Director. On my first week, I had to tackle a new Ratchet & Clank, Super Mario 3D World, and three other games. It hasn't let up after that, and as a result...   more

If 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand were about Eminem, it might be like Deadpool

In this segment of our drunken 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand stream, I think we're mostly just getting drowsy. Max talks about the evolution of Eminem and I yell at my roommate for texting me about laundry during the stream.   more

Very Quick Tips: Civilization: Beyond Earth

Civilization: Beyond Earth is fantastic, but even though it does a lot through tutorial popups, missions, and the Civilopedia to help new players, it can still be daunting. With several new systems in place, even series veter...   more

Pay phones are swear stores in 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

Max and I are getting steadily more drunk in this segment of our 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand livestream. We get a little drunkenly political, considerably more stupid, and start to wonder if Nick Robinson will ever show up.   more

Killer Instinct's Season 2 is off to a great start

Confessional: I make up my own stories for games

Donkey Kong 64 made me the gamer that I am today

Is classic Survival Horror considered old fashioned now?

I like to be scared. I'm not some kind of dark-obsessed weirdo, though. I just really enjoy the feeling of being tense or terrified, so much so that I used to think that there was something wrong with me. Maybe there is. A fe...   more

I'm so glad I never sold my copy of Mario Paint

Bored of the things: Shadow of Mordor should've been a dating sim

Stop being dicks, online racers

Attention Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel buyers: I have dibs on Wilhelm

Back in 2012 I had dibs on Zer0 from Borderlands 2. I didn't regret it! I completed the game several times with him and embarked upon the DLC with a smile on my face. But Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel doesn't have Zer0, which is a major bummer. Instead, I'll be rocking Wilhelm. One ninja's loss is another epic beard's gain.   more

Ronnie James Dio kicks a little wagon around
