In this week's installment of Dtoid Huge News of the Week, Holmes demonstrates the lengths he's willing to go to in his mad quest for video views, resorting to the one thing guaranteed to succeed on the internet: pornography.

We have a very passionate episode of Dtoid Huge News of the Week today, as the dynamic duo address the throbbing controversy over a sexy trailer for Sengan Kagura Cooking Rhythm pulled down by YouTube. Plus, Caitlin presents a new product which efficiency-minded gamers seem likely to lap up, PlayStation Now is a thing you can sign up for later, and Holmes proves himself to be the most extreme of the hardcore in the Lightning Round.

This show is the kind of thing you can only get away with when someone's got your back, and you have ours. Cheers.
Happy Monday, Huge members! What a whopper of a show we have for you this week. We've got a heated debate about the age and attire changes made to some characters in Bravely Default, some new R&B, a reviews round-up set to the Ramones, a breakthrough on talking dog technology, and as always, a round up of the biggest news stories of the week.
I'm a strong man. I never give in to temptation, but when you dingle it girl? It makes me lose control. When you dingle it girl, it really is my whole world. When you dingle it girl, it really is my whole world. When you dingle it girl, it really is my whole world. Your dingle makes me tingle and your dangle makes my wang get chubbed and tough.
This is it, Huge members! The AAA budget, brutally honest, no-holds-barred, DH Not W year-end awards special extravaganza! We've got guest appearances from GoNintendo's Raw Meat Cowboy, Sony's Shane Bettenhausen, the return of Marshtomp from Teenage Pokemon, and a whole lot more! You will not believe your eyes and ears when you see and hear the things that happened so hard.
So hard. That's how they happened.
Starting next week, we'll be back to the news, review recaps, and answering your wonderful questions, so be sure to write in to HolmesSupHolmes@gmail.com with all your comments and inquires. Chances are high that we'll read one on the air. Take a chance on us. You wont regret it.
About a month ago, Caitlin Cooke and I started a news show called Destructoid Huge News of the Week. It's sort of like if the producers of Sunday's with Sagat were in charge of the NBC Nightly News. Actually, that's exac...
Hello Huge Members! Guess what? Something has happened! DH Not W host Caitlin Cooke has left for a two week holiday retreat, leaving us in a bit of a pickle. How do you shoot a video show staring Caitlin Cooke without a Caitlin Cooke to star in your video show? As with all things, technology provides for us. It holds us in is loving embrace, keeping us safe from the harsh realities of life. With technology, we can all be as wonderful as Caitlin Cooke. We just need to believe.
Thanks again for watching the show everybody! If you like it, hate it, or just want to get your name read on the next episode, send your mail to HolmesSupHolmes@gmail.com, and tell your friends to do the same. We want you in our lives.
Hello Huge members! We've got a very special episode of your super-secret news show this week, featuring a guest appearance by Dtoid legend and Escapist Reviews Editor Jim "Jimquisition" Sterling. For years, Jim Sterling and Destructoid were synonymous for a lot of people. I'd tell people at PAX or E3 that I worked at Dtoid, and they'd respond with excitement (or disdain) "Oh right! Jim Sterling's website." We're still "working" together on The Dismal Jesters, but I still feel his absence on Dtoid everyday, like phantom limb pain in the shape of a sometimes controversial, hilarious and insightful third leg.
Jim's over at the Escapist full time now, but I'm going to try to lure him back onto DH Not W whenever I have the chance. This week also includes numbers on the newly current gen consoles wars, news on Cliffy B's next game, Pikmin 3 and Dead Rising 3 DLC, a singing reviews round-up, a mesh tank top, and so much more. Thanks so much for tuning in, and remember to send your questions and comments to HolmesSupHolmes@gmail.com.
On this week's game show-themed episode of DH Not W, we discover the pizza panic button, answer a question from Occams Electric Toothbrush, offer commentary and information on all the biggest news to come out of last night's VGX awards show, and make our best guess on what's the last thing you'd ever want to say to your Dad.
As if that wasn't enough, Caitlin Cooke will wrap and recap the reviews of the week just for you, while Jonathan beats up a box in the background. You've got to feel it. It's electric.
If you love, hate, or "whatever" the show, please drop us a line at HolmesSupHolmes@gmail.com with your questions and comments. We're also toying with the idea of an end of the year awards special, with nominees determined by the viewers, so be sure to send us any idea you have in that arena. We promise to read them all.
As you'll no doubt remember from our exclusive reveal, Windborne is a new sandbox game from the fine folks responsible for Defense Grid: The Awakening and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and it sees players guiding their avatar through a world they can create and explore either alone or with the help of online partners. There's a ton of ruins filled with puzzles and treasures to uncover, plus enemies encroaching on your island that you'll have to defend against.
To grab an exclusive beta code, just head on over to our HUGE redemption page and push the button! Then, just login to your Steam account and redeem the code there.
Have fun! And for more information on what you get with your $3 a month Destructoid HUGE membership, click here! It's pretty awesome :)
It's time for the second episode of Destructoid Huge News of the Week EVER! It's pretty exciting. We added some segments, tried to improve on the stuff that debuted last week, and are having a heck of fun time trying to put it all together. We've got talk about the end of Twitch's broadcasting of content from the PS4 Playroom app, Xbox One users getting banned for saying the word dick, a singing recap of the week's reviews, a first-ever look at Holmes' family tree, and so much more.
Thanks again to Huge subscribers for making this show possible, and don't forget to write in to HolmesSupHolmes@gmail.com with your questions and comments. We may read your mail on the next episode, but only if you send it in!
[Thanks to the great Benny Disco for all the amazing photoshops, and Mike Pugliese for the fantastic music.]
As much as I loved hosting and co-creating The Destructoid Show, it was a show that was often limited by reality -- the reality of working for a big outlet like Revision3 (where producers and directors make all the final creative decisions), the reality that if the show didn't do well that my wife and I would starve to death, and the reality that not everyone can get behind ideas that burst into my brain after 2 hours of sleep and 6 cups of coffee.
Thanks to Huge, I now have the opportunity to do a news show my way. The first order of business was finding a collaborator. I was lucky enough to rope the unflappable Caitlin Cooke into the job, and she's already taken to it like a fish to water. From there we had to figure out how to make a news show on our own. Considering the conditions I think we did pretty well, and with luck and experience we'll hopefully keep getting better.
We've got a lot planned for future episode including review recaps, interviews with developers, and other surprises. I really hope you give the show a shot, and drop us a line at HolmesSupHolmes@gmail.com with your feedback and questions. We'll be reading a selection of them aloud on the next episode, so don't say anything you wouldn't want the world to hear.
