Live Show: The last one with Phil and Spencer

See you, space cowboy
May 09
Hey all. After today's post, I'm officially gone from Destructoid. I've got to say that it's been one hell of a ride. I came in back in 2010 as a pretentious 19-year-old and I'm leaving as a 22-year old with nothing but oppor... read

Live Show: Living in the past with Hitman Blood Homie

You people are incredible.
May 08
We're wrapping up our last week here on Dtoid. After tomorrow Phil and I will officially be done at Destructoid. That's bringing up a ton of emotions for us so we're dealing the only way we know how: Binging on games. If you'... read

Live Show: Celebrating's past with Valkyria Chronicles

Community forever!
May 07
Sweet mercy, you guys love Valkyria Chronicles. When we first played the game on the channel about a month ago you all ate it up. It's definitely the most popular game we've played in quite a while.  So, we're continuing... read

GALGUNZ forever!

Yesterday was the most surreal day of my life. We put our fates into the community's collective hands and you guys caught us. If you didn't see our Patreon, it's going well. Like better than we could have ever imagined. Serio... read

Live Show: Embracing (our inner) children with Child of Light

Coeur de Pirate does the prettiest music
May 01
About three weeks ago I actively didn't care about Child of Light. I wasn't interested in JRPGs and certainly not JRPGs developed by Ubisoft. And then it all changed. JPRGs have a long history of great music. From the ea... read

Live Show: We're probably going to hate Fast and Furious: Showdown

"That's some Chicken 'n' Beer-ass Ludacris right there"
Apr 30
Have you ever heard of Fast and Furious: Showdown? I wouldn't be surprised if you hadn't, because let's be real: this game is goddamn terrible. Now, I'm not talking about something like Beyond: Two Souls which is certain... read

Live Show: The (Not Amazing) Spider-Man 2 game!

It's the one on the original Xbox
Apr 29

Live Show: Bonus Valkyria Chronicles day

Apr 28
What?! I thought we were done with Valkyria Chronicles. Sure, the game is great and has become a favorite on the channel but we already said that we were done! Consider this one a bonus. It's kind of like that time your dad c... read

Live Show: How does Dark Souls II on PC stack up against consoles?

It's impressive
Apr 25
Whenever you bring up the Souls series of games, you have to talk about the absolutely terrible PC port of 2011's Dark Souls. Let's be real, Dark Souls on PC was not developed by someone who cared about the PC market. Three y... read

Live show: Finishing up Beyond: Two Souls

I can only imagine what happens afterward
Apr 24
I have very few qualms with calling Beyond: Two Souls a bad game. From it's incredibly poorly executed QTEs to its incredibly hamfisted writing there is very little in there that I would call decent, and even fewer examples o... read

Live Show: Beyond: Two Souls Day 2

Feeling David Cage's tentacly appendages
Apr 23
Captain's Log: it's day 2 and I'm already starting to see the cracks in my sanity. David Cage's magnum opus is dragging me down. It's called Beyond: Two Souls but I reality it's closer to Beyond: Two oh my god please kil... read

Live Show: Let's play Beyond: Two Souls

Alert: I'm likely going to be miserable
Apr 22
Hey guys! I'm pretty sure that's how you're supposed to start a let's play. Yeah, I don't get it either so I'll refrain from making any more of those jokes.  If you saw Phil and my previous show, The Gentlemen's Club&nbs... read

Live Show: Saving Gallia one more time in Valkyria Chronicles

This might be the last one.... Maybe.
Apr 21
Seriously, will we ever shut up about Valkyria Chronicles? Short answer: No. Long answer: "Oh my god why didn't anyone play this game. It's seriously brilliant and it deserves even more praise than it gets." But that's not th... read

Live Show: Returning to the battlefield in Valkyria Chronicles

Back to animeland
Apr 18
You asked for it and now you're getting it. Earlier this week Phil and I played Valkyria Chronicles and everyone went nuts. That means we have to bring it back for an encore! That's right, we're continuing the tale of Sniper-... read
Row Row fight Triple A
When you look to hard-hitting journalism you (hopefully) look to Destructoid. In keeping with this tradition we had the creators of Hyper Light Drifter onto our live channel to talk about developing the game while we totally... read feature

Live Show: More forgotten gems with Resonance of Fate

The game really resonated with me
Apr 17
Earlier this week Phil and I played Valkyria Chronicles and we realized something: There are tons of great games out there that people haven't heard of and we can bring them to the people. So that's what we're doing today.&nb... read

Live Show: Wilhelm screams and motorbikes in Trials Fusion

Pretend I figured out how to write one of those screams
Apr 16
There was a time back in middle school when flash games ruled a large part of my attention span. So many classics, surely you all remember that one with stickmen and tons of violence? How about that other one about violent st... read

Live Show: Bro-op shootin' terrorists in Broforce

It's still not a Bear Force One game.
Apr 10
I wish there were witty things to say about Broforce, but what can you even say about this masterpiece? It's a co-op (bro-op) game about shooting tons of terrorists as the protagonists of your favorite action movies. This see... read

Live Show: The Humble Bundle Finale

It's good isn't it?
Apr 09

My apologies to the Anthropy family.
While I was growing up my mother always taught me that revenge was a dish best served cold. Well Mom, today the dish is being served lukewarm. If you checked out our previous Dark Souls 2 stream you'll remember that Phil insi... read feature

Get ready to go so fast!

I have a shocking love for games that make me feel like I can barely keep up with them. Sadly, there haven't been a ton of games to scratch this particular itch. Enter Cloudbuilt, the neon robot ghost speed platformer. Luckil... read

Live Show: TUG-in' it with Infamous: Second Son

I love writing titles like that

If you've never heard of the game TUG I wouldn't blame you. I mean, I had only learned about it a few weeks ago. As my producer Bill Zoeker (Zoey) pitched it, "Think like Minecraft but for your weird hipster people Spencer." ... read
