You all recommend DQ Builders? Need something to while away a lot of hours.


Right, I’ve heard there’s some stupidly expensive hdmi converter for the GameCube BUT as far as I know the Wii plays every NGC game and can use a component cable - so what’s the point?


Oh hey! I've done 3 hours of progress in Majora's Mask! I'm close to getting the Mirror Shield! Let's check the wiki on how to obtain this thing the Gibdo is asking for *reaches for the phone, accidentally presses F12 and closes emulator*


A kid who used to live in our house just had a package delivered to it. I went to find him on social media, and find out from his pictures he’s a Nazi sympathizer and Trump supporter. I don’t even want to give him his stupid fucking package now.


I've used Destructoid for years but I've only really been active in the community for just over a year or so. Thanks for putting up with me and happy birthday to Destructoid. Here's to many more!


Nate Garro and the grind towards victory!


Robot Wars has been axed :(


Decided I can't buy so many damn Limited Run Games anymore. My backlog haunts me.


Just completed DMC1. It was damn good, albeit with a lot of flaws (Annoying camera angles, some really unfair mooks even for my DMC standards, disappointing final boss fights, not enough humor), but I had a ton of fun and would replay it again soon.


Happy 12th birthday you old bastard!


I'll try to write a blog about the project #babytoid this weekend. So far we used part of the money to get a backpack for baby stuff and some cute as heck cloth diapers. Once again, thanks a lot! I can't be thankfull enough :D


Happy birthday 🅱️estructoid, here's to another 12 years of mayhem!


Here is episode 17 of my comic strip GUMFIELD. I think everyone here has been in this predicament at least once in their life.


Does anyone here own the Bloodborne: Complete Edition on their PS4 digitally? Does it show up listed as the complete edition? Or is it just Bloodborne? I want that version if it's different, but it's currently cheaper to get it as standalone plus DLC.


I finally got around to watching Gotham by Gaslight. It's good, especially the animation, but the voice actor playing Bruce needed to emote more. He's as stoic and monotone as modern Lara Croft. And that really drags the movie down.


Trying to get the good ending for Hollow Knight and I'm quickly falling out of love with this game. Someone liked Dark Souls a little too much, and Super Meat Boy a little too much. This has been an exercise in reading guides, backtracking, and buzzsaws.


Tharja's appearance in Warriors was shown off at a Fire Emblem event in Japan this weekend apparently. Supposedly she's a Robin clone, which is very disappointing.


Ruby Rose found the Necronomicon! She is now best RWBY girl. Also, HAHA, suck it, Cinder Fall!


Ya know what I really wished? That SFV had some sort of free trial. I wanted to see if it clicked before wasting any money on it.


Oh fan-fucking-tastic! My PS4 controller decided to crap out on me for no discernible reason. Now I gotta drop money on a new one. Would sure have been nice for it to last longer, considering my PS1 controller still works.


Just bought my tickets for Avengers! Anyone else going opening night?

Beating Nostalgia: When New is better - Pt 2
