While Capcom continues to laze on announcing any proper plans for Mega Man, Archie Comics has been propping up the Blue Bomber as an important pillar of its comic book empire. Now with the arrival of issue #25 on newsstands t... more
A box arrived for me today, and I had a good idea of what it was. Not only was I expecting Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut to arrive today, the package absolutely stank of raw coffee and toothpaste. It could only be one th... more
Now that PAX East 2013 is well behind you and you've all finally sobered up, I thought it would be about time to share this year's group shot!
Rumor has it that it was so cold during this year's photo shoot that Hamza literal... more
What is Hardware: Shipbreakers? It was a question that I asked myself several times after watching the trailer that Blackbird Interactive, founded by ex-Homeworld developers, released last month. The admittedly gorgeous video... more
Jonathan Holmes and I have been plugging away at Guacamelee for the past week, and I have to say, it's been an incredibly positive experience. Alongside of solid Metroidvania action, DrinkBox Studios created a memorable world... more
2011 was a pretty great year for gaming. Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking: everyone always says that every year. Sure, that might be true, but really, 2011 was a great year for gaming! Hell, just look at our Game of th... more
The Dead Space series features some of the grossest, most horrific creatures and scenes shown in gaming today. Visceral Games isn't afraid to pull out all the stops when it comes to terrifying players with the Necromorphs, an... more
You think you know everything about Final Fantasy? I did too, but there's a whole bunch of weird new stuff going on with the next title in the series, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, due out late this year. I've just r... more
No, I am not LeVar Burton, but I've been told by several people (read: no one) that I greatly resemble him.
This is your notice that Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is available right now on 3DS and PS Vita. I'm plugging my way through right now and can't think about much else. I've got Bracelet Points and sh*t on the brain. more
Mount & Blade is one of my favorite games on PC. It's an open-ended world that allows just about anything. If you want to be a traveling merchant, a mercenary for hire, a thieving bandit king, or the champion ge... more
While looking through the long list of Wii U launch titles, a few jumped out at me as completely stupid-sounding. Judging a book by a cover is one thing, but judging a game based on solely its name is a lot more difficult.
I played and loved Dark Souls on Xbox 360 originally, so I was keen to check it out again with the new Prepare to Die Edition that's available now for PC via Steam and scheduled to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 26... more
The Paradox Development Studio has been keeping me ruling over peasants, fighting holy wars, and forging empires for over a decade. Their latest game, Crusader Kings II, was recently on Metacritic's "best games of 2012 s... more
The Halo Spartan cosplay was in full force thanks to the Halo 4 panel that took place earlier today. Every outfit was unique in its own way too, from the guy with the skull mask to the Jorge cosplayer from Halo: Reach wieldin... more
Comic-Con usually dominates with cosplay based on movies, TV shows, and of course, comics. The top three cosplay themes of the second day of Comic-Con seem to easily be Star Wars, Adventure Time, and surprisingly Avatar: The ... more
San Diego Comic-Con has officially started and it's already jam packed full of people. I'm truly scared just how crowded this place will be once the weekend hits. Thankfully there's already plenty of great cosplayers to make ... more
Is putting the American flag on the ground wrong? I hope not, because I just put it on my dog. Disrespectful? Wait, look closer.
We can't get too wrapped up in flag law and technicalities as Ubisoft did a number on this parti... more
The reason Mr. Destructoid exists at all is because of the Electronic Entertainment Expo in the first place, so of course the green robot would be at the show!
The photo gallery below shows Mr. Destructoid spending some quali... more
Were you at E3? Then there's no way you could have missed the crazy hobo-looking dude preaching something on the path between the two main show floor halls of E3. There's a certain big city mindset people develop where after ... more
One of my favorite booths at E3 this past week was easily Bethesda's. The majority of the inside of their setup was decked out with all sorts of props recreated from their upcoming game, Dishonored. Hopefully, Bethesda brings the same booth to PAX Prime this year. Fans would appreciate it way more than a bunch of jaded journalists.
Anyway, let's take a little tour of their booth, shall we? more
A couple months back, Holly Green made an adorable Mr. Destructoid Perler bead sprite with the idea that a bunch of industry personnel and other famous Internet celebrities would gladly pose for photos with the little green s... more
PAX East 2012 is long behind us now but that doesn't mean we can't have one last look back at all the great costumes, booths, and how ripped Mr. Destructoid was at the show. All these photos come courtesy of some of the Dtoid... more
PAX East 2012 is in the books and it was another amazing time for the Destructoid community! Mr. Destructoid showed off his muscles, we partied with Namco Bandai's ShiftyLook, Max Scoville got slapped in the face multiple tim... more
Every PAX we let the community wear the Mr. Destructoid helmet. This year for PAX East we've given the helmet duties to community member Jacob "N7" Harder. Jacob also happens to be a professional body builder (seriously) so w... more
Awesome Shark Volcano, the team behind the IGF nominated Nous, was able to take some time with me after the Game Developers Conference was over to talk a bit about their game, Nous. We covered everything from the histor... more
Dale North, Steven Hansen and I just got finished at the Game Developers Conference today here in San Francisco and on the way home we happened across a picture of Gabe Newell's face at the corner of 4th and Howard St. We got... more
Team Destructoid has just returned from a Lollipop Chainsaw GDC party here in San Francisco and we've brought you a new release date for the game, just announced at tonight's event. North America will see Grasshopper Man... more
Tara Long and I teamed up once again to give you a look at Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor. It's the first major Kinect game that uses the actual controller, meaning that you can actually have total freedom when it comes to the... more
Namco Bandai is going through its archives to bring back older intellectual properties, but not in the usual way. Rather, these games will be reimagined as free webcomics on ShiftyLook, which executive VP and representative d... more
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is one my favorite games of all time. It received mixed critical responses, was buggy as hell when it came out, and probably could have used at least another year of development time.... more
We're introducing a new regular feature here on Dtoid for all of you PC gamers. The Weekend Modder's Guide will take a game, usually an older one, and show you how to breathe new life into it. PC gaming has a strong... more

Gaijin Games and BIT.TRIP. It's a dev team and a game series that has worked entirely within the the constraints of Nintendo's WiiWare downloadable channel. For those who have given their previous experiences a chance, what t... more
Okay, real quick-like, I'm going to explain that image. This guy told me last PAX that Kingsport Horror (an expansion for my current favorite board game, Arkham Horror) was going to be available by Halloween of 2007. Do not t... more
