Hunter S. Thompson and the Case of the Pirate's Booty

...is what I would have named Borderlands 2's first piece of campaign DLC, but maybe that's just me. That Shade character looks way too familiar. Either way, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty is shaping up to be one of Gearbox's fine...

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 guess. Rumor h...

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 minor tweaks have ...

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 d...

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 P-100, the lat...

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 producer, Matt...

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, but scared by...

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 next time I dec...

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 hard. Anyway, t...

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 fleshing out Sgt...

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 always-online DRM, ...

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 psychopath just swe...

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 he excitedly dis...

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 four other moves t...
