Best.Podcast.EVER! records episode #3 tonight!

Yikes! It's been weeks since Colette, Stella, and I recorded the last new episode of Best.Podcast.EVER! And for that we truly apologize. I blame the general chaos of the holidays. But now we are back, well rested, equipped in our cutest win...

'RetroforceGO! spin-off' ep. #1 is ready for downloadin'!

I was this close to not posting this first episode of the RetroforceGO! spin-off. First, the name: When Colette Bennett, Stella Wong, and I recorded this first episode, the show was called Fingerbangcast! Now -- after a little drama -- it i...

Help us pick a (new) name for the RetroforceGO! spin-off!

This may be the shortest-lived podcast name in the history of podcasts. After announcing Fingerbangcast -- an exciting new RetroforceGO! spin-off -- on Monday, some non-Destructoid-related drama unfortunately occurred. While I wanted to mak...

Introducing Fingerbangcast, a RetroforceGO! spin-off!

When Destructoid's late and great podcast RetroforceGO! -- something I was lucky enough to have a hand in producing -- ended with Episode 100, it was a very bittersweet moment. On the one hand, I was so proud to be a part of something so wo...

RetroforceGO! Episode 100

Yatta! We did it! I think. I am both proud and honored to finally present to you our 100th episode. It's more or less a listener questions show, but a little more personal this time around. Also, Chad totally wrote a song especially for thi...

RetroforceGO! records episode 100 tonight: Retroforce

Well kids, looks like we made it. Tonight we record our 100th episode. We thought about what our topic should be, and having already done a few retrospective episodes, we figured another one would bore you. You've heard those stories, right...

RetroforceGO! ep 99: The Wizard DVD Audio commentary

Happy not-quite-Friday, listeners. This week we recorded our audio commentary track for The Wizard. Hopefully you've been able to obtain a copy of the film, otherwise this is going to be the most boring and confusing episode you've ever lis...

RetroforceGO! records episode 99 tonight: The Wizard

So you know how Podtoid does that thing where we sit around and yap over bad videogame movies, MST3K style? Yeah, we're doing that. Say what you will about podcasts yoinking ideas from one another, but The Wizard has come up as a topic of d...

RetroforceGO! episode 98: Super Metroid

Happy Friday, listeners! This week's episode is all about Super Metroid, and might also be the first time Chad and Dyson have discussed the topic together without arguing. Not a bad way to bring us toward the end of the season. Highlights i...

RetroforceGO! records episode 98 tonight: Super Metroid

Most of you will have played the game that serves as tonight's topic of discussion many times over. You know its weapons, its levels, the ins and outs of how to take down its many formidable enemies and bosses. But the one thing you might n...

RetroforceGO! episode 97: Final Fantasy VII

RetroforceGO! episode 96: Pinball

With the ladies away at SDCC, Chad, Dyson, Conrad and I got together to record the manliest episode of RetroforceGO ever. If we'd planned it to happen this way, we could have done something super testosterone-driven, but instead we talked a...

RetroforceGO! records episode 96 tonight: Pinball

In somewhat of a departure from the norm, this week's episode is not about videogames. I say "somewhat" because it's not entirely unusual for the show to not be about videogames, even if that's our topic every week. But this time ...

RetroforceGO! not recording this week, we are sorry

We know, we know. And we hate to do this to you again, but ... well, we're pretty much all traveling or away this week. But hey, if you're in the Baltimore area for Otakon this weekend, (and really, why the hell else would you come here?) y...

RetroforceGO! episode 95: Listener questions

Happy Friday, listeners. This week's episode was made up entirely of your questions, so if it's lame, it's totally your fault. And if it's awesome, then you should pat yourself on the back for being so good at coming up with interesting thi...

RetroforceGO! records episode 95 tonight: Listener questions

The time has come once again, dearest listeners. The time ... for nonsense. Tonight we record another of our all-listener questions episodes, made up entirely of whatever ridiculous poppycock you happen to leave us in the comments. We're no...

Retroforce Recap: so what about those dirty games, now?

The RetroforceGo! team has been talking about a new idea that we thought our listeners might possibly enjoy. Rather than discuss a bunch of obscure games every week that some of you may have never heard of, we thought it might be cool to ac...

RetroforceGO! episode 94: Naughty retro games

Happy Friday, listeners. While our show is never exactly what you'd call "safe for work," this episode is seriously NSFW. Conrad joined us this week, to discuss all the dirty, pervy things that game developers used to be able to g...

RetroforceGO! records ep 94 tonight: Naughty retro games

We're back! And subsequently, so are these boobs. We seem to have Chad's handsomepox under control, so we're going to continue on with what would have been our topic last week: naughty retro games. Before the ESRB existed, you could get awa...

RetroforceGO! not recording this week due to banditos

Now that I have your attention, I'd like to inform you that we will not be recording this week. Okay, that's a lie; I probably don't have your attention. The other part is true, though. Our train was robbed by a pack of wild banditos, ...

RetroforceGO! episode 93: Final Fantasy IV (and vaginas!)

Happy Friday, listeners. There was a bit of trouble getting the show uploaded this week, but thanks to the vigilance of Geraldo Beedog, all has turned out well. Thank you, sir. This week we were joined by one of our very favorite listeners,...

RetroforceGO! records episode 93 tonight: Final Fantasy IV

That's IV, not VI. Dyslexic as I am, I mistakenly read the Roman numeral backward upon referencing our top-secret schedule of show topics to see what this week's subject was, and proceeded to craft a header image featuring the opera scene. ...

RetroforceGO! episode 92: E3 09

Happy Friday, listeners. This week we discussed all the things that pleased and displeased us about this year's E3. We also laughed a lot and talked about pancakes, because that's in our job description. Fun fact for the RFGO edition of Tri...

TricerArocK

I get so tired of reading fake gamer girl comments about women in the biz (YouTube or journos or mean, you can suspend disbelief enough to watch a porn and imagine yourself with a cock larger than four

 
Marcel Hoang

MvCI hot takes: combat is different enough to interest me, graphics are fine in combat but story mode is a crime against art I like that a lot of the returning cast is retooled and different, for example Iron Man finally has useable
