The Core! The beginning of the end, part 1

Yeehaw. If you remember back to last week you know that there's a new sheriff in town. And by new I mean old. Now it's time for our plucky band of losers to get promoted up into deputy status. That metaphor was fairly inaccur...

The Core! Whoa, next gen starts tomorrow!

I honestly thought that we had a few more weeks until the new consoles came out. Like, I knew they were coming out in November but that always seemed like it would be "a few weeks out." I guess that means that we're going to ...

The Core! PS4 Countdown Day 1!

Wow guys! New consoles are coming out, and they're really expensive. I mean, I know the technology is really expensive but hot damn: those are some expensive-ass Blu-ray players. What? They're more than just Blu-ray players? ...

The Core! Wait, what did Microsoft say about the Xbone?

I seriously don't understand Microsoft's angle leading up to the launch of the Xbone. At this point in the game (PUNS) I feel like we should have a pretty good handle on what the system is and where it's going. Microsoft seem...

The Core! OH MY GOD METAL GEAR SOLID!

I'm not going to waste any time here: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes has a launch window now. As you might imagine, that makes my pants really tight. I'm not the only one who is unable to contain their hype -- my co-host Phi...

The Core! OH MY GOD HALLOWEENLOWEEN

Whoa! You know what's spooky? I don't. I lost that ability back in Nam. Regardless, we've got a crazy show lined up! We're having the developers of Rocksmith into the house to talk about games and music. We're talking about a little game called The Witcher 3, and my favorite fighter ever: Slayer. Also, we're dressing up. Hoorrraaaaayyy! Halloweenloween!

The Core! StarCraf- I mean Call of Duty: Ghosts!

Sweet mercy! Remember StarCraft Ghost, that delightful StarCraft-themed shooter that got canceled so long ago? Activision remembers. You see that Call of StarCraft Ghosts trailer? I sure did. But that's not the only alien shooting you'll see on The Core today, EDF also got dated so expect a goofy level of hype.  Want to check out all of this alien technology? Check out the Core at 3pm PST!

Live Show: The Core cut off my PAX ponytail!

So I'm a little bitter about PAX East selling out already. By the time I got home from classes the three-day and Saturday passes were all sold out. It only took an hour for the three-days to be gone. You'll have to excuse my ...

Live Show: Who watches the Watch Dogs?

Guys. Pokemon. Like, for real, Pokemon X/Y is devouring my life. I ended up pouring 22 hours into the game in a 36-hour period. There are so many rad Pokemon now. Have you guys seen Pancham? He's pretty much the greatest Poke...

The Core: The Last Guardian, Xbox One, Sonic & More

Hey guys I'm going to level with you. When I was first offered to host a new show on Destructoid I was more than a little bit freaked out. Sure, getting to tell people about all kinds of cool video game news was always a drea...

OMG! WTF! Another episode of The Core is at 3PM PST!

Did I trick you guys with that title? Was it attention-grabbing? Titling posts is surprisingly difficult, you have to say something that tells people what they're getting into but is also entertaining. I figured, what's more ...

Live Show: Office Chat about Steam OS, Cartoon Link, more

Confession: I had no idea reading off of a teleprompter was hard. When I was told I'd be doing a news show I assumed that I'd just roll in, yell at a camera, and then get showered in free video games and booze. Apparently I h...
