Destructoid site design update: Tiny pretty update coming soon

This one is a few days or weeks away, but I'm working with old-school ModernMethod designer RC on tying up the place a bit. The first thing we're doing is fixing those weird gaps on some mobile and desktop resolutions that c...

Papers, Please: The Time Sega Power Went Nuts

My age had nudged into the double-digits and I had already amassed a huge amount of Commodore 64 magazines (which I sadly allowed my father to throw out…argh. I regret that). From the time my brother got us a Seg...

Quick CSS lesson: using the !important tag to scale your photos

In most cases you'll want your images to be large and squish down automagically to mobile.  Unfortunately HTML is not clever enough to determine what to do with which unless you specifically add a CSS class to each ...

New cblog feature: You can now use a webcam or social media import photos

How to do it: Start a new blog and look for the button "Pick File" under your photo uploader.  The browser should yell at you for security permissions. Look around the pop-up header area to allow it, close the windo...

How to keep the new Cblogs from stretching your images

Our software scales images twice: once up on the upload to optimize the file size, and the other within the HTML to guess the type of screen the person is using.  The first scaling makes your image 620 pixels wide, ...

Testing Blog Replies - A new community blogs feature

New community blogs feature: a reply to the home page editorial! My hope is that this will encourage more angles about the content we cover and save you some time from flipping back and forth to the home page when blogg...

Community Blogs Update: Redesign in progress

As you can see, we're doing quite a bit of work to our community blogs. We didn't plan to break the blogs but our new home page software just kind of ate everything in its path, so now we're going to make the whole site ...

SPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOORRRRRTTTTTTSSS

Having an allegiance to a sports team is stupid. I am stupid for doing it. It's like rooting for Clorox to do well on the stock exchange or something. But I grew up with a love for baseball. Not because my par...

New Daily Runs of Spelunky, Nuclear Throne, and Risk of Rain

This week, I've started posting daily runs of some of my favorite procedurally generated games to my YouTube channel. Today had a rough start to the morning, with a little bit of disappointment over reading reviews for Castl...

Videogame companies as described by Google autocomplete

Here is a list of companies that make videogames sometimes, as described by Google's autocomplete. #JOURNALISM . "Ubisoft is milking Assassins Creed" That picture says it all. "Nintendo is doomed"  Naturally. Capcom is...

How I got my mom to game: Adventure Inlay

My dad's a gamer. He's just naturally into them. We bought Mike Tyson's Punch out back in 1988 and I soon learned that I could not stand next to him while he was playing or I'd get a right hook to the face, years before Wiita...

Dtoid GOTY 2013: Kyle MacGregor's Picks

We just doled out a mess of game of the year awards, and they're all lovely games. That said, they're not necessarily all my favorite games of 2013. So, in the interest of full disclosure or something, here were the games I...

Why Ni No Kuni Shouldn’t Be THAT Closely Compared with Persona 4

Some thoughts on The Last of Us

What is up Destructiod? This blog is about The Last of Us which is a videogame you can play. It is basically like that documentary called Tekken starting Qui Gon Jinn. In it you play as a man who has a job in human traffick...

My favorite games of 2013 so far

Update: Dragon's Crown also deserves a spot on this list. And from what I've played of Killzone Mercenary it'll be on here too. We're a little over halfway through the year. Seems like a good time to do some reflecting or wh...

Exclusive Call of Duty: Ghost plot spoiler

Hi, Matthew Razak here (for those who don't remember Cowzilla3). I've come over to Destructoid from Flixist for this post to use my film expertise to let you know some important information: the dog is going to die.  Don't...

Rip off your dicks: There's a new Community Blogs editing tool

Earlier this week a community member asked why we didn't have a visual editor option. Its 2013, we really should have one. So I dropped what I was doing and installed one. If you prefer slinging your own BBcode you can sti...

When you see it you'll fap bricks

In pursuit of the upvote button suggestions thread and most popular comments, I've redesigned the faps button to be a heart. I've also added an easter egg that appears one in 169 times when the number 16 is selected at ran...

Suggestions for the new Upvote button label?

Hamza is too busy to be kicked in the face while reading email

Like most guys in the gaming industry I sit at my desk all day, which apparently kills you faster than chicken nuggets, so I try to get up every few minutes and do some exercise. We hung a chin-up bar in the hallway which a...

Bath time for videogames!

Videogames probably aren't real life. Link never has to worry about smelling terrible after jogging halfway across Hyrule. Diddy Kong eats plenty of bananas, but never has any poop to throw at anybody. (Sad, I know.) I thin...
