The Destructoid Show's Glorious, Bumbling Return

Hey gang! Well, the plan was to do a big proper episode of The Destructoid Show, live, at 3:30 on the dot. However, things didn't go quite according to plan. After an hour of technical difficulties, we managed to go live. It...

Fallout 4 might be announced next month

Fallout 4 might be on the horizon, at least if you want to believe the discoveries of Reddit. The website, thesurvivor2299.com, has apparently been registered by Bethesda. Morse code beeps in the background, which translates ...

Fallout: New Vegas fan film is bloody, scantily clad

I've yet to go through Fallout: New Vegas after being less than enthused by Fallout 3 -- though people keep telling me New Vegas is better, particularly if you didn't like Fallout 3 all that much. Accordingly. watching this ...

Live-action Fallout short is beyond amazing

No Xbox One DRM, Titanfall, Halo, & Oculus Rift VR Sex

Hey everybody! It's The Destructoid Show! ...Again! Microsoft dropped their dumb DRM, but there's a day one patch, and we're losing some features. But hey, free Xbox Live games. Titanfall has no single-player campaign, ...

Bethesda: Expecting Fallout info so soon is unrealistic

You know people are anxious to hear about your game when rumors that it was secretly shown behind closed doors at E3 make the rounds. That's what happened to Fallout earlier this week -- the rumor, that is. Bethesda VP of PR ...

To the depths and back in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

Jordan and I are pushing further in our play of the tragically existent Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. The mayor of Carbon, Texas is sending us down to the bottom of a crater where he swears the people we're looking for...

Watch the worst Fallout game ever made photo
Watch the worst Fallout game ever made
by Conrad Zimmerman

Jordan and I have started a new game in our Couch Campaign, and it's one that I have been excited to play since we first began talking about the project. As a huge fan of the Fallout franchise and a lover of top-down, exploration shoot-em-up games, the pairing of the two could have been glorious. And Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is, provided you think train wrecks can be glorious.

Fallout fans: Build your own functional PIP-Boy today!

In the age of the iPhone, the benefits of an armband computer that weighs you down is ludicrous. Nevertheless, Fallout's PIP-Boy 3000 is among the most wanted fictional tech toys among game enthusiasts. Hell, even the milita...

Bethesda versus freemium multiplayer sequels photo
Bethesda versus freemium multiplayer sequels
by Jim Sterling

The game industry tells us many things in order to justify its various activities. Multiplayer is added to so many games because solo experiences are dying. Online passes are needed because used games are killing creativity. Creativity is dead because new intellectual property is too difficult to establish. 

Despite these claims, there is much evidence of success to the contrary. Single-player games that sell well, releases that survive without scads of launch day downloadable content, and companies that are doing just fine without having to wage war on the used game market. 

In my opinion, Bethesda has been one company that really goes against the grain. As a publisher of what's called "AAA" games, the company has had success with such games as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 3, and Dishonored -- each game bucking "AAA" trends in some way or other. 

Why, exactly, is Bethesda able to get away with it?

Homemade Fallout Monopoly makes the apocalypse worth it

Despite my love of board games, I rarely get a chance to play any. My friends and the people I can occasionally stomach socializing with have little interest in sitting down and playing them with me, so I have to content myse...

Get Skyrim shirts from the official Bethesda store

Bethesda now has an official shop where you can buy a good-sized and varied selection of merchandise related to Skyrim, Dishonored, Fallout, Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Everything from t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, figurines, lithographs, and messenger bags.  Personally, I would love to wear a Winking Skeever shirt with a pair of Vault 101 sneakers. That's the pinnacle of fashion my friends.

Ten psychedelic freakouts and hallucinations in games photo
Ten psychedelic freakouts and hallucinations in games
by Taylor Stein

Have you ever heard the saying, we're all a little bit crazy? I don't know about you, but "a little bit" might be an understatement, especially within the world of videogames. While virtual protagonists often reflect the absolute best that humanity has to offer, heroes have their fair share of mental afflictions. The body is easy to heal, but the mind is much more fragile. Whether super-powered or ordinary, no individual can bear the weight of the world indefinitely without feeling the pressure. Talk about tons of baggage.

Mysterious pasts, the deaths of loved ones, and foreboding prophecies are just the tip of the iceberg in the realm of gaming. It's no wonder so many champions of justice experience some form of mental collapse. From nightmares and hallucinations, to visions and delusions, it's pretty safe to say that craziness is not uncommon. All it takes is a catalyst to re-open a deep fear, doubt, or memory, and BOOM we as the players get to take a trip down illusionary lane complete with peculiar happenings, bizarre plot twists and more.

Below are some of my favorite dreams and moments of insanity from videogames with a varied mix of hilarity, abruptness, and even moments of trepidation. Warning there are some minor spoilers throughout.

Hope for Fallout, doubt for Batman and sadness for Aliens

In another casual conversation from Destructoid's news room, Jordan Devore, Daniel Starkey and and I discuss the possible futures of Batman and Fallout. Plus, we marvel at how spectacularly wrong Aliens: Colonial Marines went.
