Ranking Overwatch's characters from worst to best

I’m not sure how I feel about Overwatch, Blizzard’s recently announced take on squad-based shooters. On the one hand, Blizzard knows how to craft a compelling IP, and if the playfully corny, Pixar-esque...

My big, stupid, honking list of 2013's best videogame... things

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...

Doug TenNapel, I hate you and I hope your game gets funded

The Best Overlooked Game of 2013

I'm a Grumpy, Old Douchebag: A Rant

The Agony and the Ecstasy of XCOM

Disclaimer: I played through the game on normal, no ironman mode - I'm a wimp. Has it really been almost 3 years since I updated my cblog? Also, I made a new banner and everything, but I couldn't get it to update. Here it is:...

Why am I excited for the Wii U? Shut the hell up, that's why.

CONTEST: Games As Art
