The Core! The beginning of the end, part 1

Yeehaw. If you remember back to last week you know that there's a new sheriff in town. And by new I mean old. Now it's time for our plucky band of losers to get promoted up into deputy status. That metaphor was fairly inaccurate. Oh well, s...

The Core! Whoa, next gen starts tomorrow!

I honestly thought that we had a few more weeks until the new consoles came out. Like, I knew they were coming out in November but that always seemed like it would be "a few weeks out." I guess that means that we're going to have to do a sh...

The Core! PS4 Countdown Day 1!

Wow guys! New consoles are coming out, and they're really expensive. I mean, I know the technology is really expensive but hot damn: those are some expensive-ass Blu-ray players. What? They're more than just Blu-ray players? I should probab...

The Core! Wait, what did Microsoft say about the Xbone?

I seriously don't understand Microsoft's angle leading up to the launch of the Xbone. At this point in the game (PUNS) I feel like we should have a pretty good handle on what the system is and where it's going. Microsoft seems to disagree s...

The Core! OH MY GOD METAL GEAR SOLID!

I'm not going to waste any time here: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes has a launch window now. As you might imagine, that makes my pants really tight. I'm not the only one who is unable to contain their hype -- my co-host Phil is just as bi...

The Core! StarCraf- I mean Call of Duty: Ghosts!

Sweet mercy! Remember StarCraft Ghost, that delightful StarCraft-themed shooter that got canceled so long ago? Activision remembers. You see that Call of StarCraft Ghosts trailer? I sure did. But that's not the only alien shooting you'll se...

Live Show: The Core cut off my PAX ponytail!

So I'm a little bitter about PAX East selling out already. By the time I got home from classes the three-day and Saturday passes were all sold out. It only took an hour for the three-days to be gone. You'll have to excuse my language but th...

Live Show: Who watches the Watch Dogs?

Guys. Pokemon. Like, for real, Pokemon X/Y is devouring my life. I ended up pouring 22 hours into the game in a 36-hour period. There are so many rad Pokemon now. Have you guys seen Pancham? He's pretty much the greatest Pokemon of all time...

The Core: The Last Guardian, Xbox One, Sonic & More

Hey guys I'm going to level with you. When I was first offered to host a new show on Destructoid I was more than a little bit freaked out. Sure, getting to tell people about all kinds of cool video game news was always a dream of mine but i...

OMG! WTF! Another episode of The Core is at 3PM PST!

Did I trick you guys with that title? Was it attention-grabbing? Titling posts is surprisingly difficult, you have to say something that tells people what they're getting into but is also entertaining. I figured, what's more attention grabb...

Live Show: Office Chat about Steam OS, Cartoon Link, more

Confession: I had no idea reading off of a teleprompter was hard. When I was told I'd be doing a news show I assumed that I'd just roll in, yell at a camera, and then get showered in free video games and booze. Apparently I have to, like, w...
