Stranger Things and Game of Thrones get the SNES treatment

I'll be the first to admit it, this story's a little strange. I'm pretty sure we've never posted anything from before. Movies and TV shows tend not to have full console releases anymore, as the tie-in games we see toda...   read

Interplay is selling off Earthworm Jim, Freespace, and more

When I think of Interplay, I think of the Earthworm Jim series, but that isn't a thought I've had in a long while. There just isn't much happening there unless you're simply rebuying the original games, and the same could be said of most of...   read

What happened to Fallout dev's cancelled Mad Max game?

If Mad Max: Fury Road had been released twenty years ago, the accompanying video game - currently in development by Avalanche Studios and scheduled for release this coming September - might've been created by Fallout developer Interplay. Un...   read

Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter

Mere days ago, I hoped out loud that 2015 would become the year of clay for videogames, and now there's an announcement for a remaster of ClayFighter. Shame it won't be out until 2016. Interplay and Drip Drop Games (who?) are promising "the...   read

Own Interplay's entire library for $125

Running through this list of discounted Interplay titles on, all I see is dollar signs and my bank account draining. Thankfully, I've played a fair number of these before and can resist the urge to rebuy. The games themselves are ha...   read

Interplay now owns the Freespace IP

In this week's episode of The Question, I talked about how much I'd like to see a new Freespace game; now we've gotten an update as to who owns the Freespace IP. Coincidence? Almost certainly. Polygon has discovered that the intellectual pr...   read

To the depths and back in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

Behold, the first Mario game voiced by Charles Martinet

[Update: And I've just been informed that Mario was voiced in Mario Teaches Typing, which predates even Hotel Mario. The original 1991 DOS version used a different actor, but a 1995 CD-ROM re-release replaced him with Martinet. However, I'...   read

The DTOID Show: Journey, FEZ, and Wasteland 2!

Happy Friday, folks! In case you missed it, The Destructoid Show went live earlier today, and in addition to giving out four codes for Waveform on Steam, we also covered a metric shit-ton of news that happened recently - some good, some ba...   read


GDC: The original Fallout was coded in two weeks' time

Interplay's Fallout MMO is done as Bethesda wins battle

The long, bitter legal battle between Bethesda and Interplay has finally resolved today, with Bethesda emerging the victor. Interplay officially has no claim to the Fallout IP, and its plans to create a Fallout MMO are now through.  "U...   read


MDK2 is getting some HD love on PC

MDK2, one of BioWare's lesser known titles, recently got a WiiWare port which is great if you have a Wii, not so much for the rest of us. Good news is that some BioWare vets (now with Overhaul Games) are reworking the old title for a HD re-...   read


GOG's Interplay sale will make your wallet cry

Good Old Games is having a 50% off sale for all the 32 Interplay games in their library. Each game is now only $2.99 until July 4th, and you can buy all of them for $95.68 although the only benefit of that not clicking 32 times. What games ...   read


MDK2 ready for WiiWare on May 9

Here's something you might have totally forgotten. Last year, we mentioned that BioWare-developed cult classic MDK2 was receiving a WiiWare port. It was admittedly a strange announcement; as with most outlandish WiiWare news, I expected thi...   read


Interplay: Bethesda's Fallout MMO lawsuit is absurd

If you've not been following the long Bethesda vs. Interplay struggle, take my advice -- don't. It's utterly stupid and depressing, and the latest chapter takes it to a whole new realm of stupid. Bethesda has claimed that it only allowed In...   read


Hurry up and buy Planescape: Torment on Good Old Games

I have to say that I was mildly miffed when Good Old Games pulled its weird little PR stunt last week, pretending they were dying and then showing up in wizard robes going "Fooled you! We were just coming out of beta! You looked silly, wail...   read


Fallout Online viral advertising moves to religion

We've seen neither hide nor hair of the actual Fallout Online game save for a few screens that arose from the court battle between Interplay and Bethesda, but we have seen the start of some viral campaigns for the game. And now they're gett...   read


Fallout Online starts the viral marketing

With the legal troubles behind them it seems that Interplay is back in action and actually working on Fallout Online, or they're just sending out teasers  and launching that website with beta sign ups during E3 to get everyone's hop...   read


MDK2 coming to Wii and PC

MDK2 is quite the game. It's a little weird, but a total blast to play with some really creative level design for its three playable characters. Or so I'm told. I've never actually dug into it because I have a fear of characters with large ...   read

Holy cow


The Gamestop Retro games article got me thinking: Have you ever traded in a game that you found out years later was worth quite a bit of money? I had EVO: Search for Eden on the SNES as a kid and sold it for other Its now worth $200-$300


Id like to think that the Switch came about, because Nintendo couldnt figure out online well enough to do proper cross-buy between the Wii U and 3DS and were just like, Fuck Lets just slap the two
