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 ...

  Hello, Destructoid! It has been a long damn while.   My name is Eric, although some of you may remember me as Kit (or by some other butchering of my old username, tsunamikitsune). A little more than 8 year...

Jinx's Most Wanted Games of 2015

Jinx's Week In Screenshots

I take a lot of screenshots, so I thought it might make for an interesting kind of blog to cover what I've been playing visually. With plenty of commentary, of course, and lots of relevant links in case anything catches ...

Time For Some Humor I Think

Steam Grid View - Making and Using Custom Images

The Joy of Steam's Grid View I made several for this game... and I don't even own it yet. For years I neglected the "grid" view in Steam I preferred the "detail" view because it seemed easier to navigate. Last winter, th...

Square Enix - Sellout Sh*tbags

It was revealed this week that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be coming "exclusively" to the Xbox One. I put that in quotes because the phrasing of the announcement left it open for the game to release later on other platfor...

Transistor - Custom Images For Steam Grid View

I made a batch of custom images to use in the larger Steam grid view for Transistor. The default image is okay, but not terribly exciting: To use a custom image for a game in the large grid view, just right-click on it and...

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...

The Steam Controller: Shut Up and Listen

Since the announcement of the Steam Controller last Friday, I don't think I've seen so many otherwise intelligent people say so many ignorant things. Just look at this moron. While I'm sympathetic to having a negative gut r...

GTX760 4GB OC - Unboxing & Mini-Review

So I picked up a GTX760 4GB OC this Monday. I didn't really need it, but I tend to buy stuff for my PC when I'm badly depressed and September is a very bad month for me (no, not 9/11). If you came here to troll about PC ...

What PC Gaming Really Costs

I'm getting tired of people telling me how expensive PC gaming is. If it was, I'm pretty sure I'd know, seeing as I've been a PC gamer for 15 years. So I decided to write a blog to set the record straight. To that end, I tho...

Game Soundtracks Part 1: You Have More Than You Think

I've been on a game soundtrack kick lately. Since my ex-girlfriend died two years ago, I have had difficulty concentrating and it's made getting schoolwork done almost impossible. Listening to game music seems to help, thou...

Make Blogs Not War

This started as a blog about me personally, but I think what I've learned that blogs are a better place for debate than article comments applies to everyone. Those of you who know me well on here by which I mean fro...

Mortal Kombat Komplete PC - initial port impressions

So far it looks like a well-done port. Everything you expect is there, including improved visuals and local multiplayer. Online is one thing I did not get to test yet. I experienced performance issues on one stage, but have...
