Making your bed is for suckers

[Image] Right now, is your bed made? If your answer is "no, of course not" congratulations. I am electing you as a mentor to your peers who answered "Yes" and "No, not right now, but usually." Look, I get it. We all have to sleep somewhere....

10 characters who need to be in Dragon Ball FighterZ

I've been constantly thinking about Dragon Ball FighterZ ever since its E3 reveal. Arc System Works has found the perfect property to show off their engine, and I'm hoping it's going to be a great experience for Dragon Ball and fighting gam...

What Disney worlds should we visit in Kingdom Hearts III?

Kingdom Hearts III feels like it’s been in development since before the release of Steamboat Willie. After Kingdom Hearts II’s release all the way back on the PS2, we’ve seen nothing but spin-offs and side stories since, s...

Did anyone else regularly get scared by Nintendo 64 games?

The Nintendo 64 wasn't my favorite console. Even on a good day, it doesn't make my top five. And many of its best games don't hold up super well if you're running them on the original hardware. But, all that said, the N64 does warrant a spe...

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...

Retroid's Episode 2 faces off against the Collector

Hey everybody, After the great response to Retroid's first episode, we were eager to record another one for you. Unfortunately, I made a mistake during recording that made it take a lot longer to edit this show than the first one. Bear with...

We administered the ultimate gamer quiz to E3 attendees

With E3 open to the public this year, I figured this was a great chance to talk to the people. To ask the real, salt of the earth gamers: what's on your mind? Why did you come to E3? What has impressed you so far? I immediately shelved tha...

Catch all the E3 2017 spectacle with our video walking tour

E3 was more crowded than ever this year with it being open to the public. If you didn't shell out the cash to brave perpetually-under-construction downtown Los Angeles, that's okay! I took some time from my packed schedule to do a full vid...

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&...

Blast from the past: Destructoid's Mega Man Maker

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...

Inside the incredibly shady world of game key scammers

A. Verdin (name redacted for privacy) isn't the only person who allegedly scammed review keys from video game PR representatives and developers, but he's one of the few who got caught. Verdin – AKA "BattlefieldAxe," "Airo95," "RaphaAa...

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...
