Something disastrous almost happened this morning. Jordan, an important COG in the Destructoid machine, was nearly gutted by a monster! It would've been a real low point for his blogging career, to have been torn apart limb by limb as a Swa...

Gears Pop! popped a new trailer with a smidge of gameplay

When we saw Gears Pop! at last year's E3, the only information we really had was that it would feature Gears characters in that love-it-or-hate-it Funko Pop style. This year, we've got a slightly more substantial trailer. It still is mostl...
