Pony Fighter to be remade with help from MLP:FIM creator

Lauren Faust is a powerful person. She helped take a relatively unremarkable children's show aimed at pre-teen girls and transform it into a multi-media, multi-generation, multi-billion-dollar sensation. She also apparently has the power to...

What's real anymore? My Little Pony / Fallout novels

There exists a five-book My Little Pony / Fallout crossover series entitled Fallout: Equestria. Written entirely by fans for fans, it takes two absolute extremes and mashes them together in a 2000+ page, 620,000+ word labor of blood, sweat,...

It's a My Little Rhythm PaRappa Pony Heaven freak out

Rhythm Heaven Fever is my favorite game of 2012. I love Fez and Retro City Rampage and Fatal Frame 2 and many, many other games that were released this year, but none of them have made a permanent change to my daily life the way ...

So cute: Spelunky Man and Meat Boy made out of clay

With TGS nearly upon us, news this week has been rather slow; I'm sure you've noticed. As such, I'm going to call it right now: Derek Yu's comic about Spelunky Man and Meat Boy is the best thing that's going to happen today. They are made o...

Get VVVVVV from Steam if you know what's good for you

At this point, I ought to just have a percentage of my paychecks go straight to Terry Cavanagh. Everything he does I seem to either enjoy, or at the very least, find interesting. Arguably his best game, VVVVVV, is now on Steam. If you have ...

You can be the proud owner of a Servbot Bobble Budd

By the time I realized Capcom was offering those ever-delightful Servbots in Bobble Budd form during this year's Comic-Con, it was already too late. I'm fairly certain I even cursed the name of Giant Bomb's own Ryan Davis for tweeting a pic...

Dooder's whimsy will melt your ice heart

2D, sprite-based platformers seem to be the go-to genre for many independent developers. If you aren't the kind of person who grew up on 8- or 16-bit titles, this can be a hard sell. Dooder by Matthew Thomas Seely certainly applies, and I ...

E3 10: Netflix search functionality coming to Xbox 360

E3 10: Rez creator plays Child of Eden for our enjoyment

E3 is going to be massive, and it's only a few days away. After taking a deep breath and digesting the mighty "Games of E3" list we posted yesterday, I polled the Destructoid staff to find out what title they think are going to be the hottest titles at the show. Or perhaps more specifically, what they're looking forward to. What did they say? You'll never know until you hit the jump!   read
