Sticks and stones may break your bones but in Haimrik words will hurt you

I didn't know much about Haimrik before getting my hands on it during PAX South. Other than its eye-catching art direction, not much has been said about the title. Glancing at its sepia-toned world, I had a slight worry that I wouldn't enjo...   read

Fight against rampant gun death in Thoughts & Prayers: The Game

There have been 1,000 mass shootings in America over the last 3.5 years. That's almost good for a rate of one per day, though we only see the highlights make national news, like when 49 were killed in Orlando (another 53 injured) in the dea...   read

Apologies to the PlayStation rep I backhanded at PAX East

On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goals in mind for t...   read

Destructoid and Destructive Creations talk about Hatred: Part 1

For better or worse, many in the gaming world might have come to take Destructoid for granted. If you follow gaming closely enough to know who we are, then you've probably also formed a general opinion about us, and regardless of what that ...   read

What if Twitter was a Real Life Party? Video games and violence

One of the great things about the Internet is the limitless opportunity for social interaction it provides. While it always saddens me to see people use Twitter and other social media tools for the primary purpose of putting other people d...   read

Postal 2, not Portal 2, got an expansion this week

I've never had much interest in playing Postal 2. Probably never will. And yet, every time it comes up, I have to see what's going on. There's a YouTube video of the bad-taste game entitled "Headless Gary Coleman Puke Party" and I watched i...   read

Lots of games are morally bankrupt, we get it

With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more hypocritical cla...   read

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgehog vomit. This w...   read

Study ties game-related aggression to 'incompetence,' not violent content

If you've played a videogame, chances are you've been angered by a videogame. I've also been upset by driving, sewing, spilling water on my suede shoes, missing a bus, rising income inequality, and comically ballooning rent prices. One stud...   read
