Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Sleep is Death

Will you look at that -- it's the very first machinima episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin. It is, perhaps unsurprisingly, about Sleep is Death. It is a game that you should definitely consider getting if you and a friend each have (A) seven...   read

Sleep is Death is out, go buy it

Jason Rohrer's Sleep is Death is now available to the general public. You should seriously consider buying it. I've talked it up before (twice), but now's as good a time as any to check out this improvisational two-player storytelling game....   read

Podtoid 147: Robocop killed Clarence Boddicker

This episode of Podtoid includes a lot of discussion about games and stuff, but in reality it's mainly about Brad Nicholson's knowledge of Robocop (and, ironically, his complete lack of knowledge regarding Buckaroo Banzai). Also, the Big Lo...   read

Change will be a-brewing in tonight's Podtoid

What will we talk about on tonight's Podtoid? I really have no clue. I know that certain secretz™ about the future of the podcast will be revealed, but I'm not 100% sure what news stories we'll be covering. The return of X-COM, maybe?...   read

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Puzzle Quest

My favorite thing about this week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is that more than a few commenters have championed it as the best example of HAWP's newer, fresher style, despite the fact that we filmed it about a year ago and just n...   read

Podtoid 145: Adam Dork's Nature Show

We talk about games and stuff in this episode, but the conversation doesn't really pick up until the final ten minutes. After the proper, let's-talk-about-videogames show ends, Adam Dork starts linking us to pictures of crabs and giving his...   read

Interview: Armor Games founder Daniel McNeely

I don't want to even think about the sheer number of hours I've spent playing flash games. Still, at least twenty percent of that time has been spent at Armor Games. From This is the Only Level to Infectonator World Dominator,  Armor G...   read

Buy the Super Meat Boy Tiger Handheld Game, support irony

Man rants about the App Store, complaining that iPhone versions of games like Street Fighter IV are just soulless brand-whoring like the old Tiger LCD games we played as kids. Company takes offense at Man's rant, removes his ridiculously ex...   read

Preview: Sleep is Death (Controller mode)

Summary time! Jason Rohrer's Sleep is Death is a multiplayer storytelling game. A Controller creates and modifies a world that the Player interacts with. I documented the Player experience in an earlier preview. It was a great deal of fun, ...   read

Ogmo from 'Jumper' confirmed playable in Super Meat Boy

If you haven't played Jumper by Matt Thorson, I'd highly recommend it -- partially because it'll make you more excited about today's Super Meat Boy news, and partially because it's a spectacularly well-designed platformer. Ogmo, Jumper's pe...   read

Rev Rant: f*ck your story

Every once in a while, Destructoid features editor Anthony Burch discusses game design and gamer culture in his "Rev Rant" video series. Firstly, this week's rant is about the arrogance of games who think their own linear, often noninterac...   read

Preview: Sleep is Death (Player mode)

Jason Rohrer and I created a story together. Sleep is Death is a game in certain senses, and a tool in others. One one hand, the act of playing is fraught with suspense and discovery, forcing a level of quick thinking and quicker reflexes t...   read

This dude wants funding for an indie game documentary

Podtoid 144 has no method to its madness

Podtoid records tonight, and the PAX East-attending members of the cast (Topher, Samit) will hopefully be joining us. I don't really know what we'll talk about. Maybe Cave Story, and how people who have finished the Hell level are cooler t...   read

Watch some GDC sessions online, for free

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: 1 vs 100

This week's Hey Ash Whatcha Playin' is more of a "hmm" episode than a "haha" episode. So long as you go into it knowing that (and also that our Dad isn't in it, because I was afraid of overexposing him) you may enjoy it. Thankfully, there d...   read

Podtoid 143: anal tax bracket

I (Anthony) don't show up until after the break, but I'm pretty sure that this week's episode is primarily about random news nonsense and an extended Games of the Week segment dealing with Metro 2033 and Splinter Cell: Conviction. Linde and...   read

Podtoid 143 records tonight, likely about God of War III

We're gonna try to talk about God of War III tonight without going heavily into spoiler territory. Shouldn't be hard given the fact that so very little of the game can actually be spoiled, but hey -- if things get rough, we'll do a special ...   read

Not-Review: Metro 2033

I'm not going to review Metro 2033. I haven't made it past the third chapter of the game, and I doubt I'll ever make it any further. It's not that Metro 2033 is irredeemably awful, or anything. It's got some good points, which I'll get into...   read

Why you need to be excited about SpyParty

There has never been a videogame like SpyParty. Most videogames deal in the epic, the explosive, and the impersonal. SpyParty deals in subtlety, misdirection, and observation. Many multiplayer games ask the player to expend thousands of rou...   read

Counterpoint: God of War III is too long, boring

Thought our discussion of God of War III ended with our official review? Think again: our "Counterpoint" series allows editors to share drastically different opinions on games we've already reviewed. It's rare that anyone complains about a ...   read
