Final GDC DLC launches with massive bugs, Mountain Dew shotgunning

Destructoid has launched its fifth and final GDC Daily Lunch Chronicles and interim cameraman Mike Cosimano again screwed up the sound. Instead of letting him get cute with ragtime music and title cards like last time, we're just putting i...   read

GDC 15 DLC #4: Pita wraps, damn good fries and ragtime

We didn't have usual cameraman Kenny Redublo during our fourth lunch of GDC (see us dining with Dale here) and things went a bit awry. Our substitute cameraman Mike Cosimano had some fun with it, though, with some silent movie magic. You m...   read

GDC 15 DLC #3: Japanese katsu curry with Dale

Look on ye hungry and despair. Familiar face Dale North joined us for the third Daily Lunch Chronicles (watch the last one here). Back behind the camera, Kenny managed to empty his plate before both of us while shooting, but he didn't have...   read

GDC 15 DLC #2: Oily hamburgers and Cranberries

The second lunch of GDC was much messier than the first, which you can watch here. Today (well, two days ago, actually) we went with an American staple, the "Hammed Burger," so named for the first woman who ever went totally ham on a burge...   read

GDC 15 DLC #1: Chicken shawarma wrap

We're at the Game Developers Conference all week. GDC is pretty cool, but also a convention, which means gross convention center lunches. We want to have nice lunches all week. Not too nice. Downtown food is overpriced, even for San Franci...   read

You can now eat Xbox One burgers in Hong Kong

Everyone has their morning rituals. Some people need their coffee. Others jog. I peruse Japanese website Gigazine hoping to see pictures of bizarre and wonderful foods. It's rarely videogame related, so I haven't shared this rite until now,...   read

Japan is getting those Mario Kart 8 McDonalds toys too

I love Japanese commercials. They're produced with such unbridled enthuisasm that it's hard to not get excited for what they're selling -- even if it's McDonalds. Nintendo has partnered up once again with the fast food chain to release its...   read

We try Metal Gear Solid cardboard box candy at TGS

Yes, they really have Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain cardboard box candy at Tokyo Game Show 2014. We were stupid enough to spend 640 yen (about $6) on eight pieces of what looks to be tiny squares of chocolate crisped rice cakes.  A...   read

Mega Man will be appearing at the Hanayashiki theme park in Japan

Every so often Capcom decides that it's time to parade Mega Man around, reminding us that they used to pump out a ton of good games for him while they sit back and collect royalties. The next really cool not-Mega Man game event is a promoti...   read

Watch Ro make some Minecraft candy pops in this episode of Nerdy Nummies

This Jazzpunk communist breakfast cereal is amazing

One of the difficulties with comedy is that describing or paraphrasing a joke frequently makes it cease to be funny, so it's hard to convey Jazzpunk's charm without completely squashing its humor in the process. However, this promotion...   read
