The DTOID Show: CoD Zombies, YAIBA, & Valve hardware?!

Greetings, dear readers! Max is still out parkouring in Boston this week, so I forced Anthony Carbon to come on my show and make fun of Max with me instead. It worked out pretty well! We also talked about some video games, I...

The DTOID Show: Borderlands 2 Review

If you've read literally any review of Borderlands 2 yet (well, except maybe this one), then you already know the game is shaping up to be one of this year's best. An absurdly compelling narrative combined with a host of min...

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I've got dibs on Maya

I’ll admit that title is a bit of a misnomer; I’ve had dibs on Maya for the past week, and now that I’ve finished Borderlands 2, I can say with all certainty I made the right choice. Earlier today, Chris called dibs on Zer0, but allow me to explain what makes this blue-haired siren so special.

Project P-100 was one of the better Wii U games at PAX

While I can't say I was wholeheartedly impressed with every one of the Wii U's offerings at PAX this year, one game did stand out as a fun and unique addition to the system's growing compendium of third-party titles. Project...

Mechromancer is the "most hardcore" of BL2's skill trees

With less than three weeks left until its release, Borderlands 2 had by far the most popular booth at PAX this year. After giving media and fans a chance to go hands-on with one of the arena side quests, I grabbed the game's...

Dance Central 3's Story Mode will make you sweat

I was both excited and scared when I learned Harmonix would be swinging by the studio last week to show off some of Dance Central 3's new Story mode. Excited at the prospect of upholding my reign of internet humiliation...

The DTOID Show: Boobs, Birds, and BioShock Infinite!

Happy Friday, wonderbuns! Max and I totally hosted a live Destructoid Show today but forgot to post about it here beforehand and now EVERYTHING SUCKS. You'll watch the recorded episode though, right? To make me feel better? ...

The DTOID Show: Dishonored, Orcs Must Die 2, and 3DS XL!

Evening, pumpkins. If you happened to catch today's live Destructoid Show amidst the repeated bouts of hacking and coughing, then you, sir, deserve a metal. A long, blunt stick of metal with which to beat me senselessly the ...

The DTOID Show: Dead Space 3, Sleeping Dogs, & SWAG!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today's news was fairly light due to Max and I both feeling like we got run over by a bus, but don't let that affect your enjoyment of our fine program. We still tried really hard! ...Okay, mildly ...

Dead Space 3 won't feature competitive multiplayer

After my brief hands-on demo with Dead Space 3 earlier this week, I had a chance to talk with the game's Executive Producer, Steve Papoutsis, to get a better idea of Visceral's direction for the series. In addition to f...

The DTOID Show: FEZ, Fortnite, and Tag Teaming DOA 5!

Evening, dumplings! Max is out of the studio today getting his teeth replaced with tiny fragile birds, so Anthony was kinda enough to join me on the set of today's live show. In addition to a hearty discussion regarding alwa...

Ashly Burch is amazing as Tiny Tina in Borderlands 2

I can't say I blame 2K for highlighting Tiny Tina's side quest as part of their Borderlands 2 demo earlier this week. We already know the game is going to be hilarious, but Burch's portrayal of the 13-year-old pigtailed psyc...

Tara talks to the Design Producer of Borderlands 2

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a full ninety minutes of Borderlands 2 earlier this week, so naturally I grabbed the game's Design Producer afterward, Randy Varnell, to help me talk through my feelings. Watch as h...

The DTOID Show: 2012 in Retrospecticus

I know what you're thinking. "But Tara, the year's only half over!" Well yes, technically that's true, but it doesn't mean we can't stop and take a moment to gather our thoughts on this year's video game releases, does ...

NBA Baller Beats: A lesson in humiliation

Despite what my vampiric complexion and freakishly strong arms would have you believe, I'm no sportswoman. In fact, as this video clearly demonstrates, I can barely dribble a basketball much less dribble one on beat with fou...

The DTOID Show: Dawnguard, TF2, and Spec Ops: The Line!

Greetings, dear readers! My better half Max is back in the studio with me today, and we've got plenty of news to cover! I get so scared when he's gone. Don't tell him I said that. On today's show, we've got a list of pre-ord...

Talking narrative with Spec Ops: The Line's lead writer

When Destructoid's Steven Hansen previewed Spec Ops: The Line back in February, he notably enjoyed its emphasis on narrative and atmosphere, adding that it looked to be "the necessary antithesis to the chest b...

The DTOID Show: Scrolls, Journey, and Dead or Alive 5!

While Max is off catching fresh salmon with his bare hands overseas, Anthony Carboni was kind enough (and contractually obligated) to filled in for him on today's Destructoid Show! We talked all about Far Cry 3's unsurprisin...

The DTOID Show: Bring on the uncensored violence!

That's right, folks - I'm back in the studio after a week-long vacation, and I've got my party shoes on! You know, the orthopaedic ones with extra arch support? (I have fragile bones.) Anyway, on today's show, we've got a tr...

Preview: Hands-on with Juliet Starling's decapitated head

To clarify, it's not Juliet's decapitated head - it's her boyfriend Nick's, though it may as well be hers. If you can tie your lover's head to a chain and swing him around in circles repeatedly pummeling any and all zom...

The DTOID Show: Mass Effect 3 DLC, Halo 4, & Diablo 3

Greetings, dear readers! It's been a while since I've written one of these; I could be wrong, but I think this is where the joke part goes. ...How was that? On today's show, we got a first glimpse at Mass Effect 3's unconfir...
