Psst, hey kid. You want some video games? Well you're in luck. As apart of the Endless Humble RPG Lands Bundle, players can pick up the entire Borderlands series for as little as $10 on Humble Bundle. The bundle include Borderlands: Game of...

 
 
 

What spooky games are you guys playing? I'm finishing my second playthrough of Dragon's Dogma, but on the horror end of things I'm playing FEAR 2, and I might start SOMA after I finish that!

Nintendo is encouraging mature titles on the Switch

We're all well aware of Nintendo's bent towards making games for all ages. Nearly every game developed by Nintendo is squeaky-clean, garnering the company a reputation for only having family-friendly titles on their consoles. However, it lo...

 
 
 

In the wake of one Chris Moyse's AMA, AMA's have come back into style. So ask me anything guys! I'll check back from Dragon's Dogma every half-hour or so to reply!

PEGI can't determine if loot boxes are gambling

Loot boxes are...a thing. A thing that has become a big problem in recent years due to their gradual advance into AAA titles that gamers have already paid a hefty chunk of change for. It started out okay enough; loot boxes were confined to ...

 
 
 

Goodbye, Steven. Your humorous and headstrong writing will be cherished in the halls of Dtoid for many years to come.

Cute Vulpix is cute at Build-A-Bear Workshop

To tell you the truth, I'm not much of a plushie guy. I think of myself as a very conscientious person - my apartment has little need for accoutrements gently positioned on my bed. To me, it looks like clutter, and I'd rather optimize my be...

Sony is making a Settlers of Catan movie

You know who Sony Pictures is. You know the kind of movies it creates, the drivel that its marketing executives spout. Jack and Jill, Pixels, Ghostbusters (2016), The Emoji Movie. This studio has generated some of the worst p...

 
 
 

I got some pictures of this beautiful Buck on my camera, but I don't know where my cable is to post them online. I'm gonna go look for it, and see if I can't show you guys this beautful beast.

Master Chief is engraved on the inside of every Xbox One X

Look, I was a huge Halo fan growing up. I played the original trilogy of games for far too many hours, opting to kill suckers online instead of doing math homework. Today's news is, well, nothing earth-shattering, but a cute tidbit nonethel...

 
 
 

Blade Runner 2049 was so good! I've seen a lot of movies this year since I started at Flixist, but this is the best. Even better than The Emoji Movie!

Nintendo's ARMS is getting a series of graphic novels

I love it when a game's universe and characters are fleshed out in supplementary content. It's a chance to illustrate a world with vivid color and character, unfolding the vision of a fictional place into something more tangible. This works...

 
 
 

Dragon's Dogma is finally available for current-gen consoles. Any excuse you had for not playing it is now gone. Play Dragon's Dogma already, it's a hackin-slashin-bashin good time. Well, at least when your pawns aren't telling you that X is weak to fire.


 
 
 
 

Gunbuster is so freaking good. For a 6 episode series, it has the unique quality of absorbing you in the struggles of Noriko, and the action the unfolds in the final episodes. I love this show! Edit: Also it has cute girls.


 
 
 
 

Here's the configuration for Cuphead that I'm using: have Jump on LS, Dash on RS, Shoot on A, Special on X. Movement is on the Left Stick rather than D-pad, obviously. I'm telling you, it works incredibly.

The best stand up on Netflix right now

At the tender age of 10, I was plopped down in my father's car on the way home from dinner. My brother's leg jutted into my right knee, and we pushed against each other as the car swerved around corners, and cradled us over bumps in th...

Picross S will not have touchscreen controls

You know, if there's one thing I've liked about Nintendo in the last 10 years, it's the touchscreens on the Wii U, 3DS, and Switch. They're pretty responsive, and I've loved using them for the Wind Waker remaster (seriously, having a dedica...

The Navy is using Xbox controllers to make life easier

In some rather bizarre news, the Navy will be adding Xbox 360 controllers to Virginia-class submarines to make controlling the vessels' periscopes easier.  The Xbox controllers will be replacing a $38,000 joystick system designed by Lo...

 
 


About Drew Stuart one of us since 3:19 AM on 12.22.2015

Drew Stuart (aka, Load of Bollocks) is a writer, thinker, hijinker...and uh, sandwich maker? He is a writer for both Destructoid and Flixist, and loves to tell jokes. Sometimes they're good.

When he isn't writing online, Drew's pursuing his Journalism degree at College. He wants to get into Games Journalism full time once he graduates, so that he can type loudly and sit proudly at his desk.

Writing in third person is weird. I can't keep this up.


This beauty was created by the always wonderful Daangus Targus

Look, I'm a gamer from Washington who loves to write and will pursue it to the ends of the earth. I'm way into FPS', RPG's, and a few flavors in between. I have a nostalgic love for 3D Platformers from the turn of the century too!

Here's a list of my favorite games in no particular order.

Metal Gear Solid 3
Dark Souls
Bloodborne
Banjo Kazooie
Fallout: New Vegas
Half Life 2
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
Castle Crashers
Halo 3
Mass Effect 2
The Witcher III
Pillars of Eternity
Yoshi's Island
Donkey Kong 64
