Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes

Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts? What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [4/19] photo
The best stuff on Destructoid this week [4/19]
by Steven Hansen

[We post a lot of articles here at Destructoid. The endless, ouroboros news cycle has us burning the snake at both ends, which will ultimately push big news, thoughtful original pieces, and all sorts of other great content off of the front page. Check here every Saturday for my attempt to rectify that.]

Some kids want to be astronauts or doctors or lawyers or hedge fund managers. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a garbageman. Kid me is much brighter than real me. I'd probably be making three times more money annually, have health benefits, and a retirement plan. 

And I'd have garbageman arms. Strong arms. Weathered and leathery. Not vein laced or ripped. Just thick. The sort of arms that could squeeze the life out of another human being if they needed to, but not with malice. With an exasperated sigh. With a rote understanding of doing what needs doing (and only if it did need doing). Forlorn, but with a stupid persistence for a lack of alternatives.

Here's last week's post. Let's begin anew.

Hardline 015: It's the PAX East episode! photo
Hardline 015: It's the PAX East episode!
by Jordan Devore

This week on Hardline, I was joined by Steven "I hardly know her!" Hansen for a chat with Dale North and Brett Makedonski about the games they were able to play at PAX East. Below, Evolve, and Child of Light were among the frontrunners, and we spoke at length about Penny Arcade's decision to open up yet another convention, PAX South, in San Antonio, Texas.

Also, Dale talked trash about the Halo theme song. That jerk / hero!

For the audio-only episode, you can subscribe on iTunes and RSS. (Note: the .mp3 version will be later than usual this week due to gremlins. I'll update this post when it's up on the usual feeds.)

Tuesday Newsday: PAX East, Titanfall, Evolve, Below & a Sexy Werewolf photo
Tuesday Newsday: PAX East, Titanfall, Evolve, Below & a Sexy Werewolf
by Max Scoville



On today's hard-hitting debut episode of Tuesday Newsday, we cover some of the highlights from PAX East, like Cult of the Wind, where you run around pretending to be an airplane, or Rain World, where you're a big squishy slug-cat. Meanwhile Firaxis has announced Civilization: Beyond Earth, Titanfall reveals details on new DLC, and Evolve has a skill tree for its monster. Brett got to play Capy Games' Below, which sounds incredible, and The Behemoth is teasing their next game. Oh, and this wolfman is gettin' all randy.

In an effort to make myself relevant to teenagers everywhere, today's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts combines Pokémon and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge
by Max Scoville



This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. 

So, here's what we did instead.
