10 things the Nintendo NX probably won't be

In March of last year, the same day Nintendo announced it would enter the mobile market in a partnership with DeNA, the company said it was working on a new "dedicated games platform with a brand new concept." More than a year later, that's...

Hands-on Style Savvy: Fashion Forward

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, the third entry in Nintendo’s fashionable franchise, hits store shelves in the US this Friday. The rest of the world has had it for a year or longer, and quite frankly I’m a bit surprised Americans ...

We were on Comedy Central last night for the best reason

Well, this is something that happened. Your favorite robot was on @midnight with Chris Hardwick last night. As our former video wizard Bill Zoeker tweeted "If Destructoid were going to be shown on television, this would be why." T...

 
 
LJN photo

Wow, LJN really hated kids

Widely reviled as one of the worst game companies of all time, LJN earned its infamy way back during the NES era, pumping out terrible licensed game after terrible licensed game. The company was bought by Acclaim where it continued to chur...

Leave 'em Laughing attempts to make a game out of comedy

Comedy ain't easy, especially in this medium, so a title that tries to game-ify creating a stand-up comedy routine sound a tad ambitious. Leave 'em Laughing from Australian developer Oscar Brittain is a mashup of adventure game elements wi...

Mega64's take on Gauntlet is only something they could do

Here's Mega64 taking on Gauntlet, with Rocco and others acting as the "world's biggest Gauntlet fans" demonstrating their love for the game and all it entails. Hilarity ensues, but that's to be expected.  I don't know if this tops "Ch...

This 'Flappy Game' mockumentary is probably spot-on

Ah, video game documentaries. Love 'em or hate 'em, you can't argue they're still interesting pieces of film. You know what's even better? Documentary spoofs. And Dorkly's got one that hits a little closer to home than you might feel comfo...

New Cabela's trailer puts a happy face on hunting

Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts was released into the wild today for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U. Activision released this trailer to accompany the launch. I love it so, so much. It's less about the gameplay, which I completely a...

Fight Club as a 16-bit beat-em-up game

This was a treat to find this morning. It's the latest installment of "8-Bit Cinema", a series from YouTube Channel Cinefix which presents how films might have been represented in classic games, and they've cast Fight Club in the role...

 
 
Trials: Fusion photo

Preview: Trials: Fusion is daring and really bizarre

The year was 2009. Back when the Xbox 360's XBLA Summer of Games was all the rage, a small little downloadable title called Trials HD came out of nowhere and won the hearts of players. With two sequels, and several million copies sold, Tri...

Preview: South Park: The Stick of Truth is ambitious

So, where were you when South Park: The Stick of Truth was announced? This was all the way back in 2011, around the time another certain RPG title was on the minds of players. It was certainly a surprising reveal, don't you think? A brand n...

This Battlefield 4 locomotive cannot be stopped

I'm loving this video of Battlefield 4, which features the "Golmud Railway" map and a 64-player attempt to bring its moving train to a halt. Is it funny because the train seems to ignore the laws of physics applied to all other vehicles in...

Why Mario leaves Yoshi outside of Bowser's castle

Have a little levity to end your week from the gang at Dorkly, as they depict a scenario in which Yoshi takes offense at being left outside of Bowser's castle by Mario.  This is why I like cats. You'd never have this conversation with...

New Jazzpunk trailer invokes spirit of Johnny Mnemonic

DayZ gang forces players into life or death duel

The new crop of open-world titles, like Day Z, give interesting insight into the people who play games. Take this roving gang of players as an example, who have encountered two people wearing the same color jacket and determine that they s...

 
 
Stick it to The Man! photo

Stick it to The Man! is just as delectably nuts on PC

I think it's pretty safe to say that Stick it to The Man! was easily underneath everyone's radar when it landed on PlayStation 3 and Vita last month. The game garnered one of our highest reviews of the year, thanks to it's highly unusual ar...

LEGO The Last of Us should be a real thing

This video brightened my day in a huge way. It's an animator's idea of what The Last of Us franchise would look like if taken on by the Traveler's Tales team of LEGO game designers. It is now my new go-to argument in favor o...

Grand Theft Auto V's Trevor tries to ditch a body in skit

I am not a big fan of Nathan Barnatt. More specifically, I find the character he portrays at gaming events (Keith Apicary, a self-unaware trainwreck of socially inappropriate behavior paired with a nasty vocal defect) to be rather lacking ...
