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...

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, ...

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 Sucks Now

Yep, it's another one of those blogs. An old-timer is ranting and raving about things changing and people moving on, blah blah blah. I started coming to Destructoid 6 years ago. That's a long time for anything, let alone s...

NES emulator Voxel Engine

So... For some reason I felt funny about posting this here.  I haven't been a very active member of the community lately (primarily due to having a baby...), but then I was like, "If this community doesn't appreciate this, no one will." So... here, I'll just let the video speak for itself.  No TL-DR here.  I'll be happy to answer questions if any of you have some.  Enjoy.

E3 2013 thoughts

In a word: disappointed. I went into this E3 rather interested. Please notice that I specifically did not say excited. I watched the conferences by Microsoft, Ubisoft and Sony as well as Nintendo's Direct and Destructoid's v...

Why I'm just saying no to Xbone

Short and sweet:  Microsoft clarified the details regarding the Xbox One's policies regarding used games, DRM, etc. I have to say, it's even worse than I expected. I admit that I'm not a MS fan but I was still interested in t...

The stars aligned last week! I had a house full of friends, a GameCube, 4 GBA SPs, 4 gamelink cables and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. I bought this game when it originally released but never reall...

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...

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...

Final Skyward Sword thoughts

So, I finally finished Skyward Sword. To be honest, I cannot recall any other game leading me to such disparate feelings. In fact, Skyward Sword is both the best and worst game in The Legend of Zelda series. Controls At th...
