Live Show: The last one with Phil and Spencer

Hey all. After today's post, I'm officially gone from Destructoid. I've got to say that it's been one hell of a ride. I came in back in 2010 as a pretentious 19-year-old and I'm leaving as a 22-year old with nothing but oppor...

Live Show: Living in the past with Hitman Blood Homie

We're wrapping up our last week here on Dtoid. After tomorrow Phil and I will officially be done at Destructoid. That's bringing up a ton of emotions for us so we're dealing the only way we know how: Binging on games. If you'...

Live Show: Celebrating Dtoid.tv's past with Valkyria Chronicles

Sweet mercy, you guys love Valkyria Chronicles. When we first played the game on the channel about a month ago you all ate it up. It's definitely the most popular game we've played in quite a while.  So, we're continuing...

Live Show: Embracing (our inner) children with Child of Light

About three weeks ago I actively didn't care about Child of Light. I wasn't interested in JRPGs and certainly not JRPGs developed by Ubisoft. And then it all changed. JPRGs have a long history of great music. From the ea...

Live Show: We're probably going to hate Fast and Furious: Showdown

Have you ever heard of Fast and Furious: Showdown? I wouldn't be surprised if you hadn't, because let's be real: this game is goddamn terrible. Now, I'm not talking about something like Beyond: Two Souls which is certain...

Live Show: The (Not Amazing) Spider-Man 2 game!

Live Show: Bonus Valkyria Chronicles day

What?! I thought we were done with Valkyria Chronicles. Sure, the game is great and has become a favorite on the channel but we already said that we were done! Consider this one a bonus. It's kind of like that time your dad c...

Live Show: How does Dark Souls II on PC stack up against consoles?

Whenever you bring up the Souls series of games, you have to talk about the absolutely terrible PC port of 2011's Dark Souls. Let's be real, Dark Souls on PC was not developed by someone who cared about the PC market. Three y...

Live show: Finishing up Beyond: Two Souls

I have very few qualms with calling Beyond: Two Souls a bad game. From it's incredibly poorly executed QTEs to its incredibly hamfisted writing there is very little in there that I would call decent, and even fewer examples o...

Live Show: Beyond: Two Souls Day 2

Captain's Log: it's day 2 and I'm already starting to see the cracks in my sanity. David Cage's magnum opus is dragging me down. It's called Beyond: Two Souls but I reality it's closer to Beyond: Two oh my god please kil...

Live Show: Let's play Beyond: Two Souls

Hey guys! I'm pretty sure that's how you're supposed to start a let's play. Yeah, I don't get it either so I'll refrain from making any more of those jokes.  If you saw Phil and my previous show, The Gentlemen's Club&nbs...

Live Show: Saving Gallia one more time in Valkyria Chronicles

Seriously, will we ever shut up about Valkyria Chronicles? Short answer: No. Long answer: "Oh my god why didn't anyone play this game. It's seriously brilliant and it deserves even more praise than it gets." But that's not th...

You asked for it and now you're getting it. Earlier this week Phil and I played Valkyria Chronicles and everyone went nuts. That means we have to bring it back for an encore! That's right, we're continuing the tale of Sniper-...

Hyper Light Drifter is the developer's own 'dream game'

Live Show: More forgotten gems with Resonance of Fate

Earlier this week Phil and I played Valkyria Chronicles and we realized something: There are tons of great games out there that people haven't heard of and we can bring them to the people. So that's what we're doing today.&nb...

Live Show: Wilhelm screams and motorbikes in Trials Fusion

There was a time back in middle school when flash games ruled a large part of my attention span. So many classics, surely you all remember that one with stickmen and tons of violence? How about that other one about violent st...

Live Show: Remembering Sega's often forgotten Valkyria Chronicles

If you're a fan of strategy RPGs you definitely know about the Final Fantasy Tactics series, and you're likely aware of Tactics Ogre, but have you heard of Valkyria Chronicles? Released relatively early in the PS3's life cycl...

Live Show: Bro-op shootin' terrorists in Broforce

I wish there were witty things to say about Broforce, but what can you even say about this masterpiece? It's a co-op (bro-op) game about shooting tons of terrorists as the protagonists of your favorite action movies. This see...

Live Show: The Humble Bundle Finale

We've had a crazy week, haven't we? When I started at Destructoid all those years ago I never thought we'd be able to curate a Humble Bundle. Look at me now, mom! So what are we doing today? We're bringing it all full circle ...

Live Show: Humble Showcase Double Feature

Live Show: Let's mess with Phil while playing Dark Souls 2

While I was growing up my mother always taught me that revenge was a dish best served cold. Well Mom, today the dish is being served lukewarm. If you checked out our previous Dark Souls 2 stream you'll remember that Phil insi...
