I love hip-hop, and I love videogames, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite artists that blend the two together. I found these guys on a music site called thesixtyone, so that's why all my links go there: Random is a rapper famous...

 
 
 

10 Things You Don't Know About ran24

I don't know how or why this got started, but I'll give it a go. 10) I love to travel I was in Budapest last semester, and so I got to hit up most of Eastern Europe. I visited Croatia, Prague, Vienna, Brussels, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Kr...

 
 
 

I'm doing it wrong.

So, apparently people usually introduce themselves when they join Destructoid. Yeah...never did that, so I'll give it a go despite lurking around the site for about a year now. My name's Rob, and I've loved videogames ever since I was exp...

 
 
 

Indie Island: The Wonderful End of the World

The Wonderful End of the World is basically Katamari Damacy for the PC. You move your avatar around the levels, automatically absorbing objects no larger than you and continually growing in mass so you can absorb bigger things. The g...

 
 
 

(Question) Castlevania: Sotn CD rooms

So I downloaded Castlevania Symphony of the Night on PSN, and its pretty cool. What doesn't make sense to me though are the rooms that have a picture of a CD and the word "CD" below it. What are these rooms for? I stood in the rooms fo...

You Only Get One: Girlfriend or Videogames?

Indie Island: Jets n Guns Gold

SHMUPs definitely hold a special place in my heart. Whether it's twitch dodging of bullets, or precise movements needed in the bullet hell games, controlling a ship and blowing shit up never gets old for me. Jets n Guns Gold was the mos...

 
 
 

Indie Island: Immortal Defense

This week's game is Immortal Defense, which is the bestest tower defense game in existence. If you don't know how these games work, enemies follow a set path, you build towers that shoot enemies automatically, upgrade them, and you also ...

 
 
 

Indie Island: The White Chamber

If you’re like me, you enjoy the Indie Nation column here on Destructoid immensely. Gaming for free, or at the very least cheap, is awesome. So, I thought I’d try a small supplement to his series, dubbed “Indie Island”, in which I’ll hi...

 
 
 

That creepy photographer in Earthbound

I've been playing Earthbound occasionally for the last two weeks, and I can't stop wondering, Who the hell is this guy? He appears out of nowhere, asks children to smile and say "Fuzzy Pickles" (hmmm...) and takes their pictures and keeps ...

 
 
 

Mega Man rap album

So, there's this rapper "Random", who made an entire album revolving around a Mega Man theme. All his songs sample Mega Man sounds in some way (I think) and lyrically are linked to the Mega Man universe. It's an incredible project, and ...

 
 
 

Video Games and your Local Library
