On the 1983 "Video Game Crash": Context Matters

I'm not sure there's a single moment in gaming history that is referenced as frequently or as intensely as the "video game crash" of 1983. Almost any discussion of the flaws of gaming, whether the discussion focuses on games,...

Is the "easy" fatality limited use Mortal Kombat X DLC the worst ever?

  I'm ready to argue that one button fatalities are awesome. When I saw that DLC was available to simplify them, I was super down for it. Mortal Kombat Trilogy has this feature included as a really awesome che...

The Journalism Show - Episode 7

Topher told me on twitter to tell my friends, so I'm posting this. We are still friends.      I'm not super into anime, but I got enough of the gags to like it. Topher's an awesome guy, he used to do work here on Destructoid. Tomopop still uses the beedog as their mascot, which is awesome.    I'm joking, I am super into anime.

Strider's favorite ninjas

In case you haven't realized it, I'm a fan of ninjas. While samurai abide by a code of honor, wearing either sweet plate armor or comfy pajamas, and use really cool swords, ninja are better described as spies or mercena...
