This week on Sup Holmes we'll be joined by Leigh Alexander, one of Destructoid's first writers. Since her time here at Dtoid, she's become one of the most well-known and evocative writers in the videogame press today, having contributed words to Kotaku, Gamasutra, The Guardian, appeared on multiple podcasts, radio programs, and more. Her recent un-review of GTA V and subsequent essay on how sad the game feels made the rounds a few weeks ago, and had people looking at the game in an entirely different way. 

We'll be talking with Leigh about videogames -- where they've been, where they're going, where the fit in with our collective culture, how it feels to have them as a focal point in her life, how writing about them has changed over the years, the mixed emotions that buzz around PAX, why games like GTA are cultural touchstones for some and completely unappealing to others, and whatever else she wants to bring up. 

Join us at 1pm PST/4pm EST for the full live talk!

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/26]

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more
