E3 may be over but some of us can't stop talking about all the cool things we got to see and play at this year's show. There was just so much good stuff on display, both for current-gen and next-generation consoles.
We alread... more
Hey everybody! We're back from E3, and boy are our arms tired. From playing video games, but also from making cartoonish flapping motions.
We ran down what came out of Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo's respective press conferences, as well as our personal favorites, and then listed off the Destructoid Best Of E3 winners. Now, we take naps. more
Titanfall already took home our Game of the Show award for E3 2013. So what about the rest of the categories and games? Well after some much needed rest and relaxation we've decided the rest of the winners for all our categor... more
This has been a fairly thrilling Electronic Entertainment Expo in a lot of ways. Hard not to be when two out of the three major console competitors are showing off brand new hardware and all the new games which come along with that. But what was the most exciting aspect of this year's E3?
Watch the video to hear what we think and answer The Question for yourself in the comments below. more
Our top pick for this month's issue of Note Worthy is the NES-flavored soundtrack for Tiny Barbarian DX, composed by Jeff Ball. There's a variety of styles presented, but all of it is super catchy and melodic, and fans of ret... more

I really like rogue-likes. There's something about their uncaring difficulty that appeals to the "HxC" gamer in me. With this in mind I got super-excited to check out Tower of Guns. The game's creator Joe Mirabello described... more
Tonight, on a very special episode of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights, Destructoid PC contributor Josh Derocher will teach you how to play EVE Online!

E3 is HUGE this year. There's a ton of buzz around next-gen games, plus consoles like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Of course, there's still a ton of solid current-gen games on offer at the show this year.
We nom... more
Game developer Cliff Bleszinski has never been a fan of the used game market, and he's made his feelings on the Xbox One and PS4 policies quite clear -- he supports Microsoft's decision to "redefine" the concept of videogame ... more

There is little debate over who "won" E3 this year: In our internal poll following the conference most of our readers chose the PlayStation 4 as the superior contender.
Sony put on a quite a strong show, came $100 under ... more

Hey hey! It's Friday. Woo.
So, today's Destructoid Show, in a nutshell: The Last Of Us is a good game, Kiefer Sutherland has replaced (?) David Hayter as Snake in Metal Gear Solid V, Respawn Entertainment's top secret next game is Titanfall, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z looks ridiculous, Diablo III on consoles has a launch date, and the Microsoft answers a few more questions about the Xbox One. more

Microsoft finally clarified much of its policy on used games and online restrictions with the Xbox One, and the news is grim for those who actually believe in consumer rights. With its new system, Microsoft will take the fina... more
In this very special, extra-long installment of Office Chat, I'm joined by Dale North, Jim Sterling, and Jordan Devore to discuss what the Electronic Entertainment Expo is expected to bring (and how much longer E3 might be e... more
Every so often, a patch hits the original DOTA that changes a million things all at once. Then, about a week later, that patch hits Dota 2. These patches are infrequent enough to get used to them, yet frequent enough to ... more
The console market has become something of a paradox these past few years. Despite total console sales having exceeded 40 million units over the previous generation, and despite a wealth of powerful new IPs, we've witnessed a... more
News about World of Darkness has been predictably scarce: the CCP-developed MMO, based on White Wolf's Vampire: the Masquerade license, is still in early development, with no release date in sight.
When I sit down t... more
It takes a certain type of game to become an obsession for me. While I play a lot of Dota 2 and Rock Band, I would call them more of a hobby than an obsession. Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac, how... more
Hey gang! Here we are again with another Destructoid Show. Big news today is Disney's Fantasia: Music Evolved, coming by way of Harmonix. The trailer looks dumb, but I thought the game was pretty cool when I played... more
So many wonderful series of videogames have fallen by the wayside over the years. But we're in an uncertain time, unsure of what the future might hold, which means we can still have hope that some of our favorite franchises might yet see life. In this week's installment of The Question, we lay out some of our dreams by naming the lost games we'd most want to see new iterations of. more
Remember Me has had an odd build up. It's been promoted decently, talked about a lot, but a highly vocal contingent of gamers had been lukewarm on it since it was first announced, and there was a pervasive cynicism regarding ... more
We all have our origin stories. My first videogame memories are of watching my uncle play his ColecoVision and Atari 2600 in the early '80s at my grandma's house. Q*bert, Frogger, Asteroids, Battlezone, Dig Dug, BurgerTime, D... more
Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights!

Hey boys and girls, here's today's energetic and stupid Destructoid Show. It's the Friday of a very busy week, so excuse us if our brains are visibly leaking out of our ears.
I'm really excited about Destiny, based on this t... more
We're only a few short days beyond the official unveiling of Microsoft's next-generation videogame console, the Xbox One, and things haven't gone all that well. Microsoft is catching a ton of flak from every direction for an ... more
Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights!
So... do any of you Friday Night Fighters have anything positive to say about the Xbox One? Anyone? I'm seriously looking for some glimmer of hope in this bummer of a... more
I grew up as a Nintendo kid, through and through. From the very first time I laid eyes on a Nintendo Entertainment System at a Sears at the age of four, I wanted to be a part of that world. I have no idea why a four-year-old ... more
With the recent lack of clarification of the used game market for the new Xbox One, some gamers are complaining about the possible death of physical used games, and the need to tie all of our games to an account. Microsoft wi... more
Earlier this month, Brett shared his love of Xbox Achievements with us, and cautioned that Microsoft's rumored next-generation revamp to the system may end up ruining part of what makes them great. For Brett, the idea of Achi... more
On this week's UNITED Podtoid, the gang celebrates and praises the announcement of the Xbox One. Only joking! It's tormented and mocked and stretched cruelly upon the Lust Gurney. Microsoft discussion dominates a lot of the c... more
When we think of the American west, we think of outlaws and lawmen, settlers trying to eke out a new life in an inhospitable place and, most of all, stylish dress composed of pastels and fringe. It is in that spirit that Jordan and I approached Sunset Riders for the Super Nintendo, knowing that while it was important to be good, that should be secondary to looking good. more
In this special, singularly-focused edition of Office Chat, I'm joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore as we discuss our reactions to the Xbox One reveal. From the frustrations of having to figure out what to now call the ... more
I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out. If memory serves, I used the opportunity to take a much needed trip to the bathroom because I was certain there would be nothing there to hold my interest.
I was wrong. Hopefully, it's not too late for us. more
