Reader Rob, co-author of the book Cosplay Fever, sent us this cosplay video taken at London MCM Comic Con recently and it's unlike any other cosplay montage video we're used to. This video was created from 4500 still photogr... more
Troy Baker is one of the biggest voice actors in gaming these days. He's been the main voices in Saints Row IV, The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite, and will soon play Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
All three stars from Grand Theft Auto V were on a panel at New York Comic-Con this past weekend and a fan had a very special request to ask of from Steven Ogg, the actor who played Trevor.
The result is, well, amazing. more

I don't think anyone expected the hype around Assassin's Creed 3 to be so strong, but the above video shows that it might be warranted. A couple members of Dtoid staff had extremely positive things to say about the above Bos... more

Two years ago, there was a pretty bad-ass Street Fighter fan film called Street Fighter: Legacy that you might have seen. After it blew up the Inter... more

E3 2011 was one of more memorable E3 for many of us at Destructoid thanks solely to Sega's Sonic Boom event. Seriously, just watch the above video to see the pure insanity of the entire night's events.
Sonic Boom is taking p... more

Anything can inspire cosplay, and I mean anything. Like keyboard-smashing Flash game QWOP, for instance. This dude was QWOP-ing it up at Comic-Con, and God bless him for that!

I'm so happy that I finally got to play Deus Ex recently, because the knowledge that the Mega64 crew didn't have to exaggerate much of anything from that game to pull this video off makes it even funnier. After the jump, you can see the boys' full SDCC Deus Ex panel crash. more
Nudey magazine day! Nudey magazine day! Hey guys, got another episode of The Destructoid Show for you. Freshly squeezed from the tubes. The YOU-tubes.

At Capcom's booth at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 they have a screaming contest booth that measured how loud you could belt one out. The loud screams won an Asura's Wrath hair headband. The loudest screams get the screamer ent... more

The rumor that Freddy Krueger (from the Nightmare on Elm Street films) and Jason Voorhees (from the Friday the 13th movies) are both headed to the latest Mortal Kombat has been floating around for a while now. Having those t... more
I love House of the Dead: Overkill. One has to respect a really shameless bit of entertainment that doesn't care how trashy it is so long as people are having a laugh. Looks like that shamelessness is perfectly preserved in its HD re-release, Extended Cut.
Here's a trailer showing off the game in all its gory, sweary glory. Have fun! more
Capcom released a new trailer at Comic-Con for the upcoming crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken in which four new characters were revealed. Keeping with the supposed tradition up to now, half of the characters ar... more

2D platformers fell out of favor with publishers a long time ago, which is why titles like Rayman Origins make me happy. Here's a shamelessly old school platformer, and it's looking damn sexy.
This new trailer shows off some of the accolades won at E3, and invents a few of its own. I'd say it deserves them from what we've seen thus far. more

We just got the news that M.O.D.O.K., Magneto, Nathan Spencer, and Arthur will be playable characters in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. We'll probably have to wait until tomorrow to get a look at those Marvel-side bad guys in action, ... more
