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 05/27/10: Spengbab edition

Yep, because that's a thing. In other news, we played videogames this week, as per usual. If you want to find out which ones, all you have to do is hit the jump. Easy, right!?

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...

Games of the week for 04/04/10: MAH BOI edition

Old meme is old, I know. Couldn't resist busting out a classic though. Immature, stupid videos like this make me laugh, and I don't really care whether you find them funny either. At least I'm not putting up some mawkish Easter-themed vide...

Games of the week for 03/28/10: Sega Addicts edition

Time for some shameless self promotion! In case you haven't heard, I'm a regular on a new podcast that discusses all things Sega. It's called Sega Addicts. That's a nice name. It also features Topher Cantler who you might remember from som...

Games of the week for 03/21/10: No Hot Chip edition

I was going to feature the brilliant new music video for Hot Chip's "I Feel Better" for our Games of the Week post, but finding a vid without embedding disabled is impossible, so there shall be no promotion. Shame, because it really is qui...

Games of the week for 03/14/10: Ekans edition

Hot off the heels of our SoulSilver/HeartGold review and I still cannot stop thinking about Ekans. Ekans is the Rattlesnake Pokemon and there are so many reasons why it is the best one. So many, in fact, that I might write an article about ...

Games of the week for 03/07/10: Bangers & Mash edition

We all remember Bangers & Mash, and nobody can pretend that they don't. Let us all bask in the nostalgia that we all have for those cheeky apes and their madcap shenanigans. It really doesn't get anymore zany than this, and you can cra...

Games of the week for 02/28/10: Ed Gamble edition

As you may have learned yesterday, British comedians Ray Peacock and Ed Gamble had an argument thanks to my posting of a Ray Peacock video in a previous GOTW article. By allowing Ray to go viral, I gave him around 2000 more video views tha...

Games of the week for 02/21/10: MMM MAMA edition

It's time for more Tonetta! This is Dale North's second favorite Tonetta song, MMM MAMA, which recently returned to Youtube after an undeserved hiatus. As the official fan blog for Tonetta, Destructoid is thrilled to see justice served and...

Games of the week for 14/02/10: You tosser edition

I'll grab any excuse to promote a good comedian, so this week I would like to remind everyone that Ray Peacock exists. Here's one of the few bits of stand-up that you can actually find of the guy. He's a very funny man indeed and his work ...

Games of the week for 02/07/10: Super Bowl edition

You are all watching the Super Bowl so I literally have no reason to put any effort into this.  Hit the jump whenever you see this. Like, in the morning or whatever.

Games of the week for 1/24/2010: Talking Psycho edition

Jim's traveling this week, so you're getting your Games of the Week fix from a different source. Thrilling. You've no doubt seen this video by Miles Fisher, where he covers a Talking Heads song and puts it to a video where he mimics Ameri...

Games of the week for 17/01/10: Obama's Prize edition

Yes folks, it's time for more of everybody's favorite singing sensation, Tonetta! Now, I was among those who raised an eyebrow when Barack Obama won the Peace Prize for basically being a trendy politician, but I did not take my grievance t...

Games of the week for 01/10/10: More Rickytic edition

The world screams for more Rickytic, and boy are we going to deliver him! If you've never watched this man's videos before, be prepared for greatness. The man is an artisan, the very reasoning of poetry in human form. I present to you one ...

Games of the week for 01/03/10: Rock n' Roller edition

Here is a list of irrefutable reasons why Wig Wam is the greatest band ever invented. If you disagree with any of them, you are a frenulum: They are called Wig Wam The band members are called Glam, Teeny, Sporty and Flash Their songs are ...

Games of the week for 27/20/09: How it reams edition

Yes, it's more Tonetta this week and you're going to enjoy it even if it kills me. This is very much one of the beloved singer/songwriter's power ballads. It's a stirring and evocative portrayal of a man's sense of power and a warning abou...

Games of the week for 20/12/09: Jingle Balls edition

It's almost Christmas, and that means we need an official Christmas song. Who is more festive than Destructoid's favorite singer/songwriter, Tonetta? NOBODY YOU IDIOTS IT WAS A HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION! Yes, Tonetta has a Christmas song out f...
