Sifl and Olly return again, this time on Nerdist


Chester for president
Mar 31
// Jonathan Holmes
Silf and Olly was one of my favorite MTV shows of the 90's. I felt sad and somewhat guilty when the show it canceled in favor of more marketable but ultimately less interesting fare like Road Rules. The show was recently reb...

The Ballad of Sexy Layton (and Sexy Luke)


Such a sad song, such a happy man
Mar 28
// Jonathan Holmes
There isn't much to say about this that isn't better expressed through song, but there is one interesting piece of trivia to share. Sexy Luke is played by Capcom Fan Art legend and former Boondocks artist [name withheld per request]. That's pretty awesome. Other than that, I don't have much to say. Just watch the video.

Dig Dug parody video takes Ke$ha to the arcade


Courtesy of our own Ian Bonds!
Feb 09
// Conrad Zimmerman
Destructoid contributor Ian Bonds was seemingly too humble to post this video. Either that, or he doesn't really love us as much as I thought, because this music video created to accompany his parody of Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" is the kind of thing you really ought to be showing the people you claim to care about.

Teenage Pokemon: The first episode


Like Malcom in the Middle, but with swears and Wartortles
Dec 15
// Jonathan Holmes
[Teenage Pokemon is a cartoon show about Pokemon in their second stage of evolution. Expect some parody/tribute to videogame culture, industry, players, and events.] I just realized that the first episode of The Simpsons was...

The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles is out now on Windows 8


It looks absolutely ridiculous
Dec 11
// Brett Zeidler
You guys remember FMV games, right? Well, even I remember them, and I'm the resident baby here at Destructoid. FMVs were interactive movies that, you guessed it, used full-motion videos. Think Dragon's Lair but with real act...

Mists of Pandaria cinematic is the absolute greatest

I make no attempts to hide my infatuation with pandas. I also don't shy away from stating that I'm not a big fan of World of Warcraft. However, Blizzard knows how to get anyone excited for their games with the always stellar...

Every so often a marketing idea will come along to gear their product toward 'gamers' or 'geeks', and sometimes those products aren't terrible. Or you get something like Erox, a unisex fragrance targeted at the aforementioned...

Don't be ridiculous: Perfect Strangers gets a fan game


May 03
// Jonathan Holmes
A lot of people are saying that gaming needs to "grow up". Jade Raymond said it. Some guy who wrote an article for a videogame blog said it. A taco meat-colored guy who shops at my local Gamestop said it. Everyone is saying i...

Behind the hats, Team Fortress 2's short, funny story


Apr 19
// Daniel Starkey
Did you know that Team Fortress 2 had a backstory? Me neither. Apparently Valve's been fleshing out via comics since 2010. It's oddly interesting, and brings order to one of the most chaotic kill-a-thons in modern gaming.  Still wondering what all this hat business is about...

Juliet cleans off zombie bits in Lollipop Chainsaw video


Apr 05
// Brett Zeidler
Zombies are messy. Like, really messy. Their fragile bodies are falling apart and full of blood, so I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Juliet gets covered in zombie bits after a day of slaying them with her chainsaw. She ...

Dorkly does Limbo


Feb 27
// Victoria Medina
Limbo is one of those games that works well because of its atmosphere. When you take that element away, like Dorkly did, you end up with something silly, and maybe a little bit scary, like the above video. Just be warned, once you've seen this video you can never unsee it. Lollipop Spiders. That's all I've got to say. Limbo with a flashlight [Dorkly]

Machinima teases (fake) Angry Birds movie trailer


Dec 07
// Victoria Medina
All I want for Christmas is for this Machinima trailer to be for a real movie. Sadly it isn't, which I think is a shame. Don't worry though, there is an Angry Birds movie in the works. It just isn't an homage to Snatch (the movie, you perverts). Seriously though, this is an amazing idea, and while I have less than no desire to see the real Angry Birds movie, I would go watch this movie. Twice.

What I learned playing Self Defense Training Camp


Nov 20
// Conrad Zimmerman
I've been playing a ton of Kinect games for review lately, and one of these is Ubisoft's Self Defense Training Camp. The game aims to teach you a variety of techniques that you can employ to get yourself out of a dangerous situation. I found the whole experience to be thoroughly enlightening and wanted to put together a video which showcased how there's a way to escape absolutely any problem.

Someone put me in the best video ever made

Sometimes I really want to pack it all up and quit while I'm ahead.  That's how I felt when I first heard that I'll have a bit part in the upcoming XBLA/PC/WiiWare title Retro City Rampage. I wasn't sure it could get an...

Sometimes people ask me why I like Rhythm Heaven Fever so much. It's a hard thing to explain. Like with so many rhythm-action games, you really need to play it to understand why its great.  Nest time the topic comes up,...

Grand Theft Auto V: Only For Kinect


Nov 03
// Max Scoville
If you missed yesterday's Destructoid Show, we did a nice little recut of the Grand Theft Auto V trailer that went live yesterday. Most people seem to get a kick out of it, but some others are posting outraged YouTube comments because they think it's real. Oh, internet. You so stupid.

Crazy Dave starts rap career in new Plants vs Zombies vid

Have you heard the latest track from Cray-Z? It is totally off the hook. The guy has more flow than the Hoover Dam. It's clear that he is destined to be a hip-hop legend.

I tried to write my own verse in a vain attempt to match the poetic brilliance at work in this poem exalting the might of the mayor of Metro City. It is beyond me. Witness and be amazed.  [via YouTube]

Cuccos: for years we've taken their ability to glide safely across Hyrule for granted. When we had no further use for these beautiful creatures, we cast them aside without a care. We even hit them a few times when they got i...
