The Problematic Translation of H.P Lovecraft

As many know, I am an unapologetic supporter of the horror genre. It allows for us to all feel one overwhelming emotion together in unity, while also telling a complex or surreal story with hidden themes and deeper messages. Perso...   read

Bloodborne as a card game, huh?

My first reaction to hearing that a popular video game is being adapted into a board game is usually skepticism, but in this case, I'm more curious than anything else. Designer Eric Lang (Blood Rage) took to Twitter this week to announce hi...   read

That sure is a Bloodborne werewolf jerking off

On weekdays, I typically wake up to a couple hundred fresh emails sitting in my inbox. When events are happening, like this week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco (which I'm not even attending!), things can get considerably more...   read

Before GameTrailers shut down, it re-scored Bloodborne a perfect ten

The games industry was saddened yesterday to hear of the closing of GameTrailers, a media staple for the past 13 years. People like to say "it's the end of an era" anytime anything popular ends, but the phrase actually feels apt in this in...   read

Badass blacksmiths make Bloodborne's iconic Saw Cleaver

Bloodborne's rife with unique weapons, almost all of them fitting the criteria of being interesting enough to warrant a real-life adaption. But, the Saw Cleaver edges out the rest this time and is the one that's actually made, maybe becaus...   read

Watch someone beat all of Bloodborne's bosses without dodging

Trying to beat Bloodborne is like trying to break through a reinforced concrete wall with a toothpick. You keep chipping and chipping and chipping away, maybe eventually making a tiny crack, and then a tentacle monster comes out of nowhere...   read

Nic Rowen picks the best of 2015

This Bloodborne comic is too cool for still images

Mike Cosimano's personal picks for Game of the Year 2015

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2015 turn out?

While it is currently several days into 2016, I am still writing 2015 on all my checks. Rent's past due, by the way. Speaking of 2015, it was a year wherein a lot of video games came out, many of which we were dog-whose-owner-is-returning-f...   read

Blood Rocks are now slightly less ridiculous to get in Bloodborne

To fortify weapons in Bloodborne, you must find increasingly rare materials. The last item in particular is a huge pain. A Blood Rock is needed to max out a weapon, but so very few exist. There's one toward the end of the game and another ...   read

Majestic! Bloodborne is online again

Earlier this week, From Software took Bloodborne offline for "emergency maintenance on the game servers," presumably to address an exploit that led to players gaining access to content from The Old Hunters DLC without paying for it. The ser...   read

Bloodborne is offline for 'emergency maintenance'

Yesterday, I logged into Bloodborne for another evening of futile attempts to beat the optional boss in The Old Hunters. It's a maddening exercise in patience. One slip-up, and you're out. Plenty of people are struggling with the DLC's firs...   read

A nice big 9GB patch just landed for Bloodborne

Bloodborne, an actually worthy game, is getting a GOTY edition later this year

I find it funny when developers release GOTY editions when the title completely doesn't deserve it. It's always interesting to see how marketing hype plays into some re-releases, as a bunch of titles don't even get the "Of the Year" moniker...   read
