Mortal Kombat X's TV advert channels the schoolyard spirit

Flagpole, 3 pm

Who could forget those special playground moments as a child? Maybe you're shootin' hoops are playing kickball, when you hear some kid scream "FIGHT!" at the top of his lungs. You drop everything immediately, because if you ...

Kirby ad makes curses look adorable and pleasant

That's not how curses are supposed to work
Feb 09
// Brett Makedonski
Curses aren't anything to scoff at. Anyone that's played Castlevania II: Simon's Quest knows that. So do Chicago Cubs fans, all too well. But, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse makes jinxing hijinks look so tolerable. Ma...

Bud Light turns man into Pac-Man in Super Bowl ad

This will probably never happen to you

Bud Light has released one of the ads which will air during the upcoming Super Bowl XLIX, in which an unsuspecting beer consumer becomes the player of a fully-realized, physical Pac-Man game while a live DJ spins music in a ...

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire ad probably isn't FAA compliant

Those pocket monsters sure are adorable, though

Look, kid -- there's a lot of work that goes into flying somewhere. All your liquids have to be in a tiny bag, your seat needs to turn into a flotation device in the event of a water landing, and there has to be plenty of gi...

Only in Japan, even though I really want it
Feb 28

Here you will find an advertisement for Game Center CX 3 which releases in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS on March 20. I wish it were being localized for North America, but instead I'll have to settle for this advertising m...

Xbox One commercial says it best, toots own horn

This may be a bit hyperbolic
Jan 13
// Brett Makedonski
Lots of people have had nice things to say about the Xbox One. Microsoft would like to remind you of a few, because that's what advertisements do. It's mostly just the regular "this is the console that you need in your livin...

This Xbox One ad is too immersive

'If it was anymore real, it'd be real'
Jan 13
// Brett Makedonski
Come on, Microsoft. Nothing about this new commercial for Xbox One looks anything less than miserable. I'm not going to play Ryse if it makes me feel like I got cut by a sword. The infliction of pain isn't something I want to experience when I'm playing a game. Although, depending on whom you ask, getting cut might be preferable to playing Ryse. Hashtag sick burn.

Sonic Lost World got some Yoshi's Island downloadable content this week and Sega is promoting the new content in such a '90s way. I love it.

Turn Cheetos into weaponized projectiles

Cooking with Deadpool

What would Chef Ramsay say?
This week Destructoid is sponsored in part by Walmart Games Center and Deadpool, who demonstrates his skills at irony and chimichangas. Kids, do not attempt these advanced culinary techniques at home without adult supervision and a video camera present.
