Live Show: Light one up with Little Inferno

If you've played a game in the past generation, you're probably aware of World of Goo. 2D Boy's smash hit puzzle game is on nearly every platform imaginable and can be called a landmark on the indie game landscape. While this is great,...

Live Show: Humble Showcase Double Feature

Yeehaw, it's time for Humble game roundup day 2. If you missed yesterday's festivities you missed a rollicking good time with PixelJunk Monsters. But it's time to put that craziness behind us. It's time to jump into Critter Crunch and Super...

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 insisted in trying ...

Live Show: We're punching animes in J-Stars Victory Vs

If you've ever been to our live channel Dtoid.tv you know that Phil and I love some ridiculous Japanese games. That's part of what makes our partnership with Play-asia.com so much fun. In the past we've had fun shooting underage anime girls...

Live Show: Cloudbuilt is crazy spirit Mirror's Edge!

I have a shocking love for games that make me feel like I can barely keep up with them. Sadly, there haven't been a ton of games to scratch this particular itch. Enter Cloudbuilt, the neon robot ghost speed platformer. Luckily, friend of th...

Live Show: TUG-in' it with Infamous: Second Son

If you've never heard of the game TUG I wouldn't blame you. I mean, I had only learned about it a few weeks ago. As my producer Bill Zoeker (Zoey) pitched it, "Think like Minecraft but for your weird hipster people Spencer." After looking a...

Live show: Let's get anime with Witch and the Hundred Knight

You ever have those games that just sneak up on you? When Witch and the Hundred Knight was announced I was all about that nonsense. Fast forward several months to now and the game is out. Boy does it look silly. If you aren't up on Witch an...

Live Show: Win some Titanfall goodies!

If you're anything like Phil or I you haven't put down Titanfall since it came out on Tuesday. It's really refreshing to jump back into a competitive multiplayer game. Now that I'm thinking about it, the last time I got into something like ...

Live Show: Sony's here with Hohokum and Helldivers

Have you guys seen Hohokum? Of course you have, it's the charming and beautiful game about everything and nothing. I realize that's not a very apt description, but there isn't really a better way to describe it. All we know is that it's pre...

Live Show: We're playing Dark Souls II

I don't often recommend that you take Phil and my crazy antics and base drinking games off of them, but if you have to do it sometime: today is the day. Now, we aren't exactly bad at games -- between the two of us we can muddle our way thro...

Live Show: Did Matt and Trey sell out to Ubisoft?

I've never been a huge fan of South Park. I mean, I appreciate its biting satire but there's just something about the show that convinced every suburban teenager to try a Cartman impression that just doesn't sit right with me.  Oh, it'...

Live show: We're playing Infamous: Second Son today!

If you own a PlayStation 4, chances are you're pretty stoked about Infamous: Second Son. Now, if there's one thing we do here at Destructoid it's give our loyal fans what they need. So if you're preparing to cram Second Son into your d...

Live Show: Is Lego Movie one of the few good licensed games?

Hey all, consider this a PSA: Lego Movie is good- like really really good. So, when a lovely fan gifted Phil a copy of the game on Steam (Thanks Shadowclone1000!) we were cautiously optimistic. Sure Lego games are typically charming little ...

Live Show: We're playing the last good skating game

In case you didn't catch last night's Gentlemen's Club I'll bring you up to speed: Phil and I are taking over Dtoid.tv once our beloved King Foom moves on. This means that we're going to have to restructure the entire live channel and we're...

Come join us for the last Gentlemen's Club

Yep guys. It's time to pack in the Gentlemen's Club. It's been a hell of a ride. We started the show up almost a year and a half ago and it's easily become the highlight of my week. When Phil and I first came up with the idea to do a Twitch...

Videogames Clubhouse: Garden Warfare puns!

When Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was first announced I was seemingly the only person on the planet not won over by it's charms. Something about EA making a third person shooter out of an already delightful IP didn't sit right with me...

Videogames Clubhouse: Neon-Ninja-Strider time!

I had no idea that Strider was going to be as rad as it is. Leading up to release I expected a kind of meh platformer that was all style with no substance. Well I feel foolish. The neon-soaked ninja nonsense (alliteration) is an action Metr...

Gentlemen's Club: We're giving away tons of Payday 2!

If you've been following my Twitter you know I'm absolutely head over heels for Payday 2. I came in expecting a crime themed Left 4 Dead-lite but what I got was one of my favorite co-op games. There' s something about planning out a heist o...

Videogame Clubhouse: We're giving away Hotline Miami

Goddamn do I love Hotline Miami. It's certainly the little game that could. It's bloodsoaked neon aesthetics and thumpin' soundtrack has made it one of few games I've beaten multiple times. Now, you can imagine my excitement when Zoeker han...

Videogame Clubhouse: The Valentine's Day special

It's time for that annual occurrence of public shame and humiliation: Valentine's Day. If that sentence wasn't enough to tip you off then know that I'm not a big fan of the holiday. So what is a guy to do to prepare himself for tomorrow? Pl...
