Destructoid Anthem (The Pledge)
I. There occurs a God
We are but humans
and surely doomed when
Destructoid begins to march
He's got a scanner
for good gaming manners
he may let you see his private robot parts
Don't be scared
He's a gentle god
don't be afraid
just try his website on
we've been inclined
to resist from time to time
no way we'll win
he's got lazers in his eyes
when it's time to join we'll raise his standard high
and shout Destructoid to you we pledge our lives
II. From his mouth we are (in)formed
Oh puny humans
you're so amusing
when you see I burn with epic win
I trade in awesome
and gaming gossip
while the others lie
or just pretend
Lift up your hands
present to me each blistered fist
Callused thumbs and aching fingers
true gamers never rest
let go of fear and anger
and be my, be my newest guest
I have known you since you were but a small child
wild with games and glee
was proud of every painful smile
even when you faced defeat
Every quarter your small hand dropped
or console proudly displayed
Every wish you made for one more life
it was to me you prayed
I have seen your long and lonely nights
battling last the boss
Even though you were fatigued
you would bare not one more loss
So I welcome you unto my domain
my good and faithful servant

We've got boards we've got blogs

This took place at Infinite Bits in Miami, FL. During the panel we talked about Destructoid's history, how all of us starting our sites & a surprise visit at the end.
Today we're mixing things up and changing to a roundtable discussion format in honor of the impending release of Kinect. Max Scoville, Tara Long, Jonathan Holmes, and Jon Carnage all huddle together around our tiny table and riff on the Microsoft Kinect. How does it compare to the Eyetoy, Wii, and Playstation Move? What are the launch titles like? Is its release an important moment in gaming? And most importantly, will it say that Jonathan and Tara are morbidly obsese? The answer to all these questions and more on a brand new DESTRUCTOID!
People are going CRAZY for the Call of Duty Black Ops release tomorrow. A couple peeps robbed a Gamestop in Bel-Air, lines are forming for midnight releases as this is written, and footage has even surfaced of the elusive Wii version. A few other non-Black Ops stuff is happening: theres some new characters revealed for Tekken Tag Tournament, Destructoid and Super Meat Boy teamed up to fight Multiple Sclerosis, and Dance Central is spying on your naked body. Buckle up, its the lucky 13 edition of Destructoid!
The gang from Destructoid gathers 'round the round table once again to discuss this fall's hottest release: Call of Duty Black Ops.
Listen: sometimes, a company just doesn't know what to do with their own properties. Sometimes, fan projects have to take the law into their own hands. Guests Tara Long and Jonathan Holmes from Destructoid join Anthony to look at some of the best fan projects ever.
In this very special episode of the Destructoid show, our trusty hosts find a scary machine that provides a glimpse of the future. Journey with us as we travel forward in time and experience DESTRUCTOID 2050.
Today on Destructoid, we've got a whole bushel of reviews for your enjoyment. Donkey Kong Country Reviews hits the Wii in a big way, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood exceeds expectations while Sonic Colors does not, and EA Sports MMA looks fomidable in the ring. In soul-crushingly depressing news, Portal 2 moves a little bit further back, and the cool looking Mega Man Online is slated to be a Korean exclusive. (BTW: If any Koreans have a couch Holmes could crash on, EMAIL US!)
Welcome back everyone. Jonathan and Tara are back from a long, blacked out weekend of turkey and booze, and ready to give you everything you missed in the gaming world. Gran Turismo 5 came out and was reviewed quite favorably by Dale North, Epic Mickey might not SO epic, a brand new world of Destructoid is being created in Minecraft, and Nintendo still sells consoles.
Strap on the diapers and get ready for an ultra leaky Monday edition of Destructoid! Jonathan and Tara break down the gameplay footage of Killzone 3 that got leaked, ponder the wonders of an Android/Gingerbread powered Playstation Phone, discuss the beauty of a WoW Cataclysm dance party, and chat about Street Fighter, as usual. Also, Tara does her best Lara Croft pose, whatever that means.
Hey everybody, it‚Äôs time for another hump day edition of the Destructoid show! Today we‚Äôve got a lot of news that should appease the hardcore gamer deep, deep inside each and every one of you. Sega is teasing a new Dreamcast collection for the PS3 and 360 that should allow us to relive all the good times we had with that console, without the hassle of dealing with a VMU. Platnium Games, the guys behind Bayonetta are working on another game with Sega, we‚Äôve got new trailers for Okamiden, Ghost Trick is coming to iPhone, and the newest Humble Indie Bundle is live! Also, since it‚Äôs the end of the year, we‚Äôre doing our Game of the Year shows soon! Check out our full list of GOTY nominations at the end of the show. Last but not least, we see the return of my favorite segment: the YouTube comment of the week!
It's that time of the year -- the Destructoid Show Awards Show are HERE! Jonathan, Tara, and everyone at the Destructoid Show take a look back at 2010, and give thanks to the games that stood out. On part 1 of a two part spectacular, we give out awards for the best graphics, the best co-op experience, the best virtual acting, the hardest to put down, the best storytelling, the biggest disappointment, and the Destructoid**** GAME OF THE YEAR. Who will come out the big winner? Red Dead Redemption? Mass Effect 2? Super Mario Galaxy 2? Enslaved? Super Meat Boy? Watch and find out who walks away with the Golden Helmet!
Part two of our epic conclusion to the Destructoid Show Awards Show is here. Today we run down the best DLC, the best score, the most improved series, the most surprising announcement and our most prestigious award, the coveted READER'S CHOICE. Who will walk home with the Golden Helmet? Will it be Halo: Reach, Mass Effect 2, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Black Ops, Assassins: Creed Brotherhood, or will a dark horse(steed) steal the show? Watch to find out, and be sure to let us know YOUR game of the year in the comments.
Happy New Year everyone! We‚Äôre back from our mini-hiatus, and we‚Äôve got a bunch of new resolutions. First and foremost, everyone say hello to our new co-host, Max Scoville. You may recognize him from guesting on some previous episodes, but now he‚Äôs here for good. Our much beloved Jonathan Holmes had to return to his home-planet of Boston, and continues to fight the good Destructoid fight, but logistically, living in Boston and shooting in San Francisco just doesn‚Äôt work out. Anyway, news is pretty light right now so we‚Äôre a little slim on content. The biggest story of the day is the leaked/stolen 3DS that found its way off the Nintendo assembly line in China and next to some cute desk ornaments. We‚Äôve also got the promise of even more forthcoming Mass Effect 2 DLC, Monster Hunter in 3D(s), and intriguing Japanese underwear. Stay a while won‚Äôt you?
What'd you guys do this weekend? If you're one of the thousands of people that joined is in our charity:water livestream, then you helped us raise over $5,000, and enough to provide clean water to an entire village. THANK YOU! Aside from livestream shenanigans, there was also a few videogame related things that happened. We found out what happens when you play Dead Space 2 on the hard(core)est difficulty, and discovered what co-creator Ian Milham thinks of a Dead Space movie. We also got news that our fearless leader Mr Destructoid is making an appearance in the forthcoming iPhone game The Blocks Cometh, and get the latest word on the Dtoid Minecraft happenings (spoiler alert: awesome things are happening). Finally, we learned that the project formerly known as Midway's Hero is back as AWAKENING, and looks pretty awesome.
