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...

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...

Citizens, unite: vote Mike Haggar

[Another gem from Destructoid's Golden Archives, this our most popular story of April 2008] As you’ve no doubt been following the prospective U.S. presidential nominees, you must be asking yourself several question...

The ten most meaningful videogame quotes of all time

[This month, Destructoid turns 7 years old! Here's the top article of this weekend back in 2008. You can browse more of these in our Golden Archives. Nostalgic yet? -Niero] Call me a weakling, but it's been more or less forev...

Six sinister things about Super Mario

[Destructoid turns 7 on March 16, 2013! I'm celebrating early by repairing some of my favorite articles from our Wordpress days. You'll be able to browse this original collection soon -- "Destructoid's Golden Archives" is her...

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...

See you around, Destructoid

I don't like goodbye posts, generally. I can't count how many obviously insincere farewell posts I've read on innumerable blogs, where people whine and cry about missing the community and the people and the fun while silently...

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.

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 ...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

Monthly Musing: E for Effort

Every month, the Destructoid Monthly Musing topic gives community members the ability to have their work posted on the Dtoid front page. Our own Josh Tolentino came up with this month's theme. Thank him if you like it, blame ...

Interview: Armor Games founder Daniel McNeely

I don't want to even think about the sheer number of hours I've spent playing flash games. Still, at least twenty percent of that time has been spent at Armor Games. From This is the Only Level to Infectonator World Dominator...

Buy the Super Meat Boy Tiger Handheld Game, support irony

Man rants about the App Store, complaining that iPhone versions of games like Street Fighter IV are just soulless brand-whoring like the old Tiger LCD games we played as kids. Company takes offense at Man's rant, removes his ...

Preview: Sleep is Death (Controller mode)

Summary time! Jason Rohrer's Sleep is Death is a multiplayer storytelling game. A Controller creates and modifies a world that the Player interacts with. I documented the Player experience in an earlier preview. It was a grea...

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...

Rev Rant: f*ck your story

Every once in a while, Destructoid features editor Anthony Burch discusses game design and gamer culture in his "Rev Rant" video series. Firstly, this week's rant is about the arrogance of games who think their own linear, o...

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...

Podtoid 144: Lil' Scarface

This is the Scarface video we're talking about: It's pretty awesome. This week, the regular cast minus Brad discussed PAX East, the 3DS, and a bunch of listener questions. Hope you dig it.

This dude wants funding for an indie game documentary

Well, not this dude, in the picture. That's Gregory Weir, creator of Babies Dream of Dead Worlds and I Fell In Love With the Majesty of Colors. He'll be in the documentary, as will Amon26 and Auntie Pixelante. Basically: this...

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.

Watch some GDC sessions online, for free

At this year's GDC, I had the opportunity to give a brief talk at the Artgame Sessions, organized by John Sharp and Daniel Benmergui. That session, along with many others, can now be streamed for free at the GDC Vault. I have...

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...

Rev Rant: the freedom to be boring

Every once in a while, Destructoid features editor Anthony Burch discusses game design and gamer culture in his "Rev Rant" video series. Are players inherently boring? I'm really not sure. On the one hand, you've got people ...

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.
