You won't believe these Kirby pics that Dtoid drew, they will blow your mind and restore your faith in humanity

How's Destructoid wrapping up E3? Frantically cranking out previews from the press room? Hustling around the show floor to see as much as possible? We probably should be. Instead, we're drawing pictures of Kirby. Really really good pictures of Kirby.   more

Hardline 22: Mortal Kombat X, Homefront: What?, and Luigi's death stare

In this last episode of Hardline before E3 2014, we kind of lost our minds. Things started out proper, with talk of our most anticipated games of the show as well as Mortal Kombat X, Batman: Arkham Knight, and the superb Mario Kart 8. Business as usual. Then Homefront: The Revolution happened. For the audio-only episode, you can subscribe on iTunes and RSS or download directly.   more

Costume Quest 2 isn't for the hardcore, but it's for the hardcorn

If there's one thing that the folks at Double Fine aren't known for, it's being pigeon-holed into making the same game. In fact, almost all of its titles are wildly different from one another. From the likes of Brüt...   more
