The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

"You gave the Lost Soul a big smile, like you remember she likes to do... For some reason she sort of wants to smile back..." I'm not crying. Not one bit.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.

Yay, I got off of work early and may have Friday off! I have a sinking feeling I'm going to work 10 hours on Saturday as a result, though :/ We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.

Lots of games are morally bankrupt, we get it

With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more h...   0

Why the Super Mario movie is an underappreciated masterpiece

[Ed. note: El Great Burcho published this on February 2007. It's one of our Golden favorites.] No, I'm not being ironic, or corny, or funny. Neither am I drunk, stoned, nor under the influence of outside forces requiring me t...   0

Ramblings of a colorblind gamer

You may or may not know that I am red-green colorblind. Money looks grey to me, pink looks white, brown looks green. No big thing. Since I was born colorblind, I have no frame of reference for how the world is "supposed" to l...   0

See you around, Destructoid

Podtoid 148: Bob Hoskins is watching you f*ck

The end, for now. Podtoid will be going on hiatus for a while. It'll definitely be back -- we're just not sure when, or how, or with whom. In the meantime, not-download a copy of the Super Mario Bros movie and enjoy.   0

Tonight's Podtoid is a Super Mario Bros. movie commentary

It will also be my and Aaron's last Podtoid as Host and Other Guy, respectively. I don't know if we'll have enough time for listener questions at the end, but I thought I'd throw this up on the off chance that someone asks a ...   0

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Sleep is Death

Will you look at that -- it's the very first machinima episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin. It is, perhaps unsurprisingly, about Sleep is Death. It is a game that you should definitely consider getting if you and a friend each...   0

Sleep is Death is out, go buy it

Jason Rohrer's Sleep is Death is now available to the general public. You should seriously consider buying it. I've talked it up before (twice), but now's as good a time as any to check out this improvisational two-player sto...   0

Podtoid 147: Robocop killed Clarence Boddicker

This episode of Podtoid includes a lot of discussion about games and stuff, but in reality it's mainly about Brad Nicholson's knowledge of Robocop (and, ironically, his complete lack of knowledge regarding Buckaroo Banzai). Also, the Big Looming Changes to Podtoid are announced a few minutes in.     0

Change will be a-brewing in tonight's Podtoid

What will we talk about on tonight's Podtoid? I really have no clue. I know that certain secretz™ about the future of the podcast will be revealed, but I'm not 100% sure what news stories we'll be covering. The return o...   0

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Puzzle Quest

My favorite thing about this week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is that more than a few commenters have championed it as the best example of HAWP's newer, fresher style, despite the fact that we filmed it about a year...   0

Podtoid 145: Adam Dork's Nature Show

We talk about games and stuff in this episode, but the conversation doesn't really pick up until the final ten minutes. After the proper, let's-talk-about-videogames show ends, Adam Dork starts linking us to pictures of crabs...   0

Interview: Armor Games founder Daniel McNeely

Buy the Super Meat Boy Tiger Handheld Game, support irony

Ogmo from 'Jumper' confirmed playable in Super Meat Boy

If you haven't played Jumper by Matt Thorson, I'd highly recommend it -- partially because it'll make you more excited about today's Super Meat Boy news, and partially because it's a spectacularly well-designed platformer. Og...   0

Preview: Sleep is Death (Player mode)

Jason Rohrer and I created a story together. Sleep is Death is a game in certain senses, and a tool in others. One one hand, the act of playing is fraught with suspense and discovery, forcing a level of quick thinking and qui...   0

Podtoid 144: Lil' Scarface

Podtoid 144 has no method to its madness

Podtoid records tonight, and the PAX East-attending members of the cast (Topher, Samit) will hopefully be joining us. I don't really know what we'll talk about. Maybe Cave Story, and how people who have finished the Hell level are cooler than people who haven't? Maybe we'll talk about our favorite Shakespeare plays. No we won't.   0

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: 1 vs 100

This week's Hey Ash Whatcha Playin' is more of a "hmm" episode than a "haha" episode. So long as you go into it knowing that (and also that our Dad isn't in it, because I was afraid of overexposing him) you may enjoy it. Than...   0

Podtoid 143: anal tax bracket

I (Anthony) don't show up until after the break, but I'm pretty sure that this week's episode is primarily about random news nonsense and an extended Games of the Week segment dealing with Metro 2033 and Splinter Cell: Conviction. Linde and Brad aren't around for this one, but Leray showed up. Enjoy.   0
