#Games Of The Week

Reviews of the week!
On the second week of December Destructoid's reviews brought me, one sweet RPG called Ys. Okay, that's about as far as I'm going with turning this weeks review round-up into some sort of Christmas jingle. But feel free to kee...   read

Games of the Week: B-52's edition

This is the most terrifying dream I think you can ever have. And I actually like the B-52s.  As with every week, the staff at Destructoid has played a few videogames. We like to put together this little thing where we talk about ...

Games of the Week for 1/23/2011: The dream of the 90s

IFC debuted Portlandia this weekend. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet but as a newcomer to the city they're poking fun at, it's pretty evident that there's something weird going on here. Up above is a delightful exaggeration...

Games of the Week for 12/26/2010: Leftovers

It is late. I am full of second-run turkey and ginger ale. The fireplace behind me is crackling out its last and the snow is piling up outside. Good thing there's plenty of warm game systems to keep us all toasty this holiday season. The De...

Games of the Week for 12/12/2010: Crazed

There's no reason for the above image other than my own personal amusement. Carry on. Destructoid played games during the last 7 Earth-standard days. You would refer to this specific quantity of time as a "week" and we do the same because w...

Games of the Week for 12/5/2010: Riding elephants edition

Mind not that there exists such a thing as a "behind-the-scenes" interview for a commercial. If that has to be a thing, let them all have Conan O'Brien in them. We played games at Destructoid during the last week and we're itching to tell ...

Games of the Week for 11/28/2010: Doing it as a goof

Clearly, you're just not understanding my sense of humor. I goof a lot. The Destructoid staff does not goof. They're intensely serious people who do nothing but play videogames all week long, diodes strapped to their heads while the news i...

Games of the Week for 11/21/2010: Spanish voting edition

[The above video is about as safe for work as When Harry Met Sally] Apparently, Spain is about to have elections. I know this because the Socialist Catalonian Party has made an advertisement in which a woman voting has an orgasm at the bal...

Games of the Week for 11/14/2010: Not funny edition

Poor, poor Bill Murray. It was so hard on him in the early days. I can totally relate. I am far, far more funny in real life than I am on this blog. Yes, sir, I'm a veritable fount of comedy gold in person but I just can't seem to be funny...

Games of the Week for 11/7/2010

And people say that American Football has some ridiculous victory dances. Time once again for the Destructoid staff to run down the list of games they played over the last week. Can you guess all of the games we played before we have time ...

Games of the Week for 10/4/2010: Zombie edition

I get the feeling that it's going to be a slow news night. That's okay. I have 72,000 zombies that aren't going to kill themselves. The Destructoid staff spend a little time each week playing videogames. And, once a week, we talk about the...

Games of the Week for 9/26/2010: Late(ly) edition

It's seemingly impossible to find a version of Carol King's "It's Too Late" in a 16:9 ratio. Someone should get on that. It's so rare that I get to say Stevie Wonder is my second choice in anything, but here it is. Destructoid played games...

Games of the Week for 9/19/2010: Todd Margaret Edition

It amazes me that there are programming directors out there who would greenlight a series starring David Cross. That takes balls that clang. And, yet, here we are. The Destructoid editors played videogames this week. I bet you did also. We...

Games of the Week for 9/12/2010: Tapuface Edition

Games of the Week for 8/1/10: Lawn Jockey edition

I am not Jim Sterling. Depending on your perspective, this could be a great or terrible thing. Jim's plate is pretty full these days, so I will be taking over the posting duties for our weekly celebration of the games we played the week be...

Games of the week for 07/25/10: Scatman edition

Our very own Joseph Leray reminded me of Scatman today. Now you all get to watch Scatman and be reminded of him as well. My God the Nineties was an age of kings. An age, my friends, of kings! In other news, games were played this week. Hit...

Games of the week for 06/11/10: Bottom edition

I've been on a real Rik & Ade kick lately, rewatching episodes of Filthy, Rich & Catflap and Bottom. This is a clip from the last episode of Bottom in which Richie and Eddie film a viciously hilarious accident to try and win some m...

Games of the week for 07/04/10: American justice edition

It's July 4, the day we celebrate America doing some stuff to some people a number of years ago because of reasons. In honor of this great day, what could be more Patriotic than a classic scene from Metal Wolf Chaos? Richard Hawk is the mo...

Games of the week for E3 2010: Everyone's tired edition

As you likely know, Jim usually does this. But he's wiped from E3. Everyone is, actually. No one's in a mood or anything, and we feel pretty good about our coverage, but today is definitely a down day. We need a down day, company wide. I di...

Games of the week for 06/06/10: Z-List celebrity edition

I have officially obtained the rank of "minor Z-list celebrity that nobody cares about", making this the most important day of everybody's lives. Basically, I was on the BBC's World Service station this morning talking about Russia's propos...

Games of the week for 05/30/10: Tim Minchin edition

  Anybody who follows me on Twitter or Facebook will know that I have become obsessed with Tim Minchin lately. The singer/songwriter/skeptic/handsome bastard is a genius and well worth watching. The above video is "The Good Book", his ...

Games of the week for 05/16/10: Transformers edition

Those who know me will know that my non-videogame obsessions tend to fluctuate wildly between Aliens and Transformers, and the obsession is usually kicked into high gear when a videogame is on the horizon. With War for Cybertron looming cl...

Games of the week for 05/09/10: There is no God edition

I've come to realize that this section has had a distinct lack of Mitchell & Webb. Luckily, this is soon to be rectified. This week's not-game-related video presents proof that there is no God. Enjoy that, why don't you? As usual, the ...

Games of the week for 05/02/10: Bangers & Mash edition

They never mean to do no harm, but you can guarantee, they'll upset the apple cart, though accidentally, Mash and Bangers' clangers come about quite frequently... Hit the jump for our games of the wee...

Games of the week for 04/25/10: Riverleap edition

I have been obsessed with Riverleap. The game was free on iTunes this weekend, and it is amazing. It's not actually very good, considering the graphics are weird and confusing, the gameplay is based on pure luck and death comes frequently,...

Games of the week for 04/11/10: More Ray Peacock edition

Comedian, handsome boy and friend of Destructoid Ray Peacock recently did a lovely bit of comedy for Russel Howard's Good News, which is a telly show on the telly. He was very funny and made me do laughing out of the toothed arse on my fac...
