Photos from my nerdy wedding!

I got married last week! :D It was only a little bit nerdy, but since Josh and I both love video games, we obviously had to throw some references to our favorite hobby in there.  For starters, we had an Undertale-themed cake! I th...

 
 
 
 
 
 

I was just told by my brother (who I'm usually friendly with) that he and my sister-in-law refuse to come to my wedding because they still believe homosexuality is immoral. So that's how my day is going...

 
 
 

I somehow got Play of the Game as Winston today, which I think might be the only time I've ever seen Winston get Play of the Game.

I learned the hard way not to hookshot D.Va while playing as Roadhog. She jumped out of her suit after I reeled it in, and then it exploded and killed my entire team :(

Katana Zero provides a satisfying challenge for masochistic players

Solo developer Askiisoft is no stranger to creating challenging games. Tower of Heaven and Pause Ahead both gave me a run for my money (even as freeware), and the upcoming action title Katana Zero is no exception. The gameplay is perha...   read

I am Setsuna is a return to the classic JRPG formula

As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, and JRPGs in general, I was excited to try out Square Enix's upcoming I am Setsuna. Though the story and themes are completely different, comparisons between the two are immediately obvious when looking ...   read

We Happy Few is a roller coaster of creepy vibes and eccentric humor

If everybody was super happy all the time, the world would be a better place, right? But what if that happiness was forced upon society in the form of a drug? Things may not actually be as pleasant as they seem. Compulsion Games' We Ha...   read

Dragon Quest Heroes II gets an in-depth new trailer

We got a quick look at Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End a couple months back, but the newest trailer is much more comprehensive, giving each character new and old ample screen time and explaining all of the vari...   read

FP: Dark Souls III tweet

This Dark Souls tweet perfectly sums up my feelings about Dark Souls III

I'd say I'm pretty much a Dark Souls fanboy at this point. I've played each game in the series long enough to earn all four platinum trophies, and then I kept on playing them for a long time afterwards. And yet, with Dark Souls III on the h...   read

Get ready for Also Cocks, the premier porn experience for Destructoid Cockeyes

We all know that the future of porn lies in virtual reality. Sure, video games are great and all, but who needs games when you've got some grade-A spank material? For this reason, we here at Destructoid are proud to announce Also Cocks, a s...   read

Anamanaguchi's new music lies hidden within Capsule Silence XXIV

In case you missed it, Anamanaguchi's game Capsule Silence XXIV was “leaked” by the band a few days ago after what appeared to be a heated dispute with developer NHX. The game at first seems to be a woefully underdeveloped mess ...   read

Review: Angry Video Game Nerd II: ASSimilation

I may not be the biggest fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd, but I've seen enough of the web series to get a good idea of what the Nerd is all about. I enjoy some aspects of it, such as his wild facial expressions and his critiques of older g...   read

Mega Man Legends 2 might be coming soon to PSN

Last year, both Mega Man Legends and The Misadventures of Tron Bonne made their way to the PlayStation Network as PSOne Classics, so it seemed inevitable that Mega Man Legends 2 would soon follow suit. And as expected, the ESRB has just rat...   read

Review: Pharaoh Rebirth+

Sometimes a game requires a second look before you realize how great it could be. This was certainly the case with Pharaoh Rebirth, a title I might have dismissed entirely had Jonathan Holmes not sent the Dtoid staff an e-mail saying, "Best...   read

This Frog Fractions promotional art is amazing

These stickers for Frog Fractions III (which is actually Frog Fractions VI in Japan) were found floating around GDC, and they might just be my favorite promotional materials ever. Of course, I'm still waiting on Frog Fractions II (also know...   read
