If I've learned anything from almost a year workin' this gig, it's this: an episode of Podtoid without unexplained delay simply ain't Podtoid. We had some terribly sexy plans for a Tokyo Game Show Wraptoid, but Niero was take...   read

Feel that? Zelda's in the air. Oh, that special time of year (or, y'know, span of years) where we finally get our hands on Link's latest adventure in Hyrule -- er, Hyrule or Some Neighboring Kingdom -- and consume ourselves i...   read

Jeez, Bungie. Releasing Halo 3 and muscling out the other worthy releases of September 25th without even a thought as to the lives you're ruining and the families you're destroying. Good thing Mega64 created a dramatic re-ena...   read

If I may beat a cliché firmly into the dirt just a few inches deeper, Halo 3 is a game that needs no introduction. I mean that literally. If you’re not decked out in your homemade MJOLNIR armor lovingly crafted...   read

When I was young, I had dreams of becoming a doctor, fostered as dreams tend to be by the games I played. Had I taken that long and expensive road through med school, I would have invariably been asked what prompted my pursui...   read

Evening, kittens. We’re coming up on a near year of Podtoid, and to celebrate this milestone the higher-ups thought that it’d be best if I destroyed the outfit as soon as possible, and therefore positioned me as h...   read

Right, Aquaria. We're still waiting patiently for the release of this game, and if you're not along with us, you should just get off this short bus at the next stop. In this latest footage of the game provided by Bit-Blot, we...   read

Great civilizations often crumble at the height of their decadence. Last week on Podtoid 31, Nex and I were drizzling chocolate on bundles of hundred dollar bills and shooting them out of a flaming cannon -- it should come as...   read

What's this? Linde's posting not one, but two stories 'bout Halo in a single afternoon? Truth is, the real Linde was brutally slain by one Dick "I Hate Fatties" McVengeance weeks ago. I am his replacement, the Linde...   read

As a means of breaking up our day-long marathon Halo 3 campaign experience earlier this week, the good people at Bungie brought us sandwiches and showed off a series of ads for the forthcoming release. Honestly, I was kind...   read

Been awhile, kids -- it's your favorite Linde, freshly returned from the barbaric wastes of Hungary, where goose liver serves as both key component to every meal and a common substitute for drinking water. Them folks are craz...   read

You guys already know the score -- when there's movin' and shakin' in the way of EarthBound or Mother news, I'm usually the nerd on call to give you the skinny. And since almost every ounce of movin' and/or shakin' these days...   read

I'd like to think that one of the most impressive tests of a game is the verdict rendered by a player who isn't necessarily an enthusiast of that particular genre. It's certainly not an opinion that you'd necessarily stack ab...   read

I had almost lost hope. Almost. You know what article I've had sitting in my queue for almost two months? It's called "Requiem for the Single Player Campaign", and it was gonna be good ol' Linde up on his soap box complaining...   read

  Watch Video Psychonauts. Yeah, I know -- sort of like Beyond Good and Evil, one of those games that needs no introduction, that almost hourly enjoys some sort of running of the mouth by one journalist or another. I'm introducing it as su...   read

Yesterday, I had an opportunity that comes once, maybe twice in a lifetime -- the chance to rekindle an old flame. No, not Nick Chester, we're broken up for good, you hear me? You only have to leave this editor at the altar o...   read

As the years go on I'd like to think we've been so exposed to horrible cliche that we don't really notice it anymore, but as the intrepid innanet detectives over at NeoGAF found, it's starting to become quite absurd. See that...   read

It's becoming such a common occurrence that I can't even muster the strength to object -- Painkiller, developed by Polish studio People Can Fly, will be the next game on the list of blockbuster-hopeful adaptations of video ga...   read

Chris Furniss is a monster. You might know him as a frequent guest on Podtoid, friend of the site and lord and master of the Weekly Geek Show, but I'm about to introduce to you a darker side of Furniss, a side that -- God hel...   read

Today, BBL rolls up on the big two-oh. I was planning on some grand gesture to celebrate, like some sort of Destructoid team photo where we're all fighting each other while riding bears or something, but I hear that's illegal...   read

I refuse to let this game sink out of your collective consciousness. Before I'm through and the game is actually released, I intend to have all of you beating down doors like the bloodthirsty dead demanding the game's release...   read

Valve's Doug Lombardi has dropped us a line announcing plans to bring Counter-Strike to Asian markets, effectively positioning the world's #1 most played online first-person shooter in the most insane competitive gaming circu...   read

While Bomberman Live still has the Destructoid crew gripped firmly in its meathooks, it's safe to say that Castle Crashers looks like the Next Big Thing on XBLA. In this video from Comic-Con, we get to see an entire boss batt...   read

 Ah, Lost. You provided many a sleepless night while I sat up trying to work out the mystery, figure out the secrets of the islands and the numbers, and find hot pixxx of that lady what plays Kate. Newly introduced at Co...   read

In their latest Top 10, ScrewAttack chalked up their list of the top 10 Mario titles -- no easy feat, considering Mario's colossal 200+ game appearances. One caveat, though: to be considered for zee list, the player has t...   read

I'm going to take the easy route here and just assume that this is what it looks like when the ESA and the VGVN try to make me laugh, because this is hilarious. While I'm most certainly in support of the cause, I do...   read

QuakeCon attendees, rejoice: one of the swankest-lookin' games in recent memory will be playable at the upcoming conference. Valve and Turtle Rock Studios have announced that Left 4 Dead, the upcoming zombie survival co-o...   read

The uprising kicked up in by the de facto banning of Manhunt 2 had some folks scratching their heads. They wondered: why all the ruckus over Manhunt? The original wasn't all that great, after all. Though I count myself am...   read

Look, it's no secret that I love this game. Having already had the chance to get intimate with the title at Hudson's headquarters in San Francisco, I knew well in advance that there was something special brewing -- so...   read

Things look pretty bleak for the next month or so, don't they? Ah, summertime -- when the gaming industry actually offers a pretty compelling excuse to get off your ass and get outside. There's not much between here a...   read
