The good, bad, and sloppy drunk of E3 2017

The Electronic Entertainment Expo was last week and our team has had some time to go home, decompress, and sober up. Steven Hansen and Brett Makedonski regale us with tales of crowded E3 show floors, a dog pooping, a secret speakeasy, and h...

Game titles that are wonderful euphemisms for genitals

Yesterday, it was revealed Destructoid agreed to be bought out by Enthusiast Gaming. When I first found out, I wondered if anything would change. In the comments of the story yesterday, some of our readers also wondered if the move would pu...

The E3 2017 Dumbstructoid Awards

E3 has come and gone and boy was it… fun? Entertaining? Exciting? None of the above?  Look, it’s a trade show, a five day long commercial for products we’ll buy, play, and trade in for shitty GameStop credit. Or, we&...

Grading Sony's 2017 E3 press conference

After a couple years of killing it, Sony finally had an off year. That's not to say its E3 2017 presentation was bad. It might even have been better than Microsoft's. But the bulk of Sony's show included new looks at big announcements from...

Grading Ubisoft's E3 2017 press conference

Last year, Ubisoft's press conference was interminable. It was seven hundred hours long with absolutely no games. Steep, a tech demo for extreme sports, was the highlight, second only to it ending. It happens. Sometimes you don't have anyt...

Grading Microsoft's 2017 E3 press conference

The first big, big, big E3 2017 press conference has come and gone. I'm choosing not to count EA because I've already forgotten what was there. Something about a Madden story mode and Battlefront II looking like how Battlefront should've i...

Best Mario level? Hands down it's Hands-On Hall

E3 is here, it’s queer and we should all get used to the next few days of video game journalists shooting a load at every trailer and demo that publishers throw their way. It’s the point of origin for the many hype trains that w...

You've got character: The Hunchback

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...

What the big three have to do to 'win' E3

Look, the whole "who won E3" thing is arbitrary and stupid, but somehow the Podtoid boys took that question and came up with some relatively smart things to say about it anyway. That was just one of the questions that came up on this pre-E3...

What do you want to see revealed at E3?

E3 is quickly creeping up on us. In not too long, the hype train for dozens of games will leave the station on a non-stop trip to Salesville. And while one of the best things about E3 is seeing all the new IPs developers and publishers reve...

Now is a good time to chime in about Rime

There really isn't much to talk about in the video game world right now, because everybody is being so hush-hush in the lead up to E3. One of the games we talked about is Rime, which might be good or it might not. Brett doesn't know. (...

Have you done anything cool in Battlegrounds?

Steven has been playing it a bit, and he has found his best success in Battlegrounds while just driving a motorcycle off some jumps. At least, until he jumped into a bombing area. That's just one of the many things discussed on this episode...

I've been working on a project for the last month or so, and I think we're just about ready to get started with it. Old-timers might remember that Destructoid once had a retro gaming podcast called RetroForce GO! I think it'd be f...

What did you think of the ARMS Global Testpunch?

Nintendo certainly knows how to market a game. While it could have gone the easy route and just provided a simple demo for both Splatoon 2 and ARMS, it decided on stress testing its servers with limited time slots to get as much traffic as ...
