Happy Monday everyone! Today Jonathan and Tara run down the games of the week, pick on Ubisoft for making a geographical error of epic proportions, preview a crazy pro-adultery pro-drinking pro-Japanese game, and conclusively prove that the Kinect is not so interested in gaming.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Today we don the ol' Pilgrim out fit to give thanks to YOU, our lovely viewers. We've got the best deals to look out for on Black Friday, as well as some of the trends that made us thankful: namely indie games, the resurgence of the platforming genre, and quality DLC. I'm guessing Minecraft, Marvel vs Capcom, and Super Meat Boy will also be included. Have a great holiday everyone, and let us know what YOU'RE thankful for this year.
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.
Today we managed to squeeze a whole lot of news into a tight, tight fit. Unfortunately, that wasn't the only tight fit. Aside from the obvious, cataclysmic fashion implications of today's episode, Jonathan and Tara manged to chat about the possibilities of an Inception game teased by Christopher Nolan, an exclusive chat with Bit.Trip developers about the future of the franchise, and a totally awesome Donkey Kong promotion going on in the UK. Tighten the jeggings, cause it's on like Donkey K- WAIT NO!! We almost violated some trademarks there.
Happy Friday everyone. No jeggings today, but Jonathan and Tara get to embrace their Super Meat Boy fanboyism with some news on Peta‚Äôs Super Tofu Boy and Mr. Minecraft as an unlockable character. Plus they chat about the possibly ill-fated Uncharted movie, the genius of Ms. Splosion Man, the potential wonder of an Adventure Time game, and the majesty of the vuvuzela. Oh, and there‚Äôs roleplaying. Everyone likes roleplaying.
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.
Jonathan and Tara get down on another crazy day of news today, with new revelations about Resident Evil(s) on the 3DS, new discounts for Sega‚Äôs iPhone games, new characters for the upcoming Mortal Kombat, and new trailers for a new Ghostbusters game. Lots of newness today! Oh, and there‚Äôs also the new Zynga game called Cityville, that has already claimed over a million lives. Facebook is the future people!
Tara survived a weekend in the beautiful, smoggy crack den that is otherwise known as Los Angeles, and came back with a crap ton of news. She was there to be on hand for the illustrious SpikeTV Video Game Awards.
Happy Friday everyone! We've got a boatload of news and reviews for you today. Jonathan and Tara continue the tradition of Wikileaks by chatting up Blizzard's leaked five-year plan, including the mysterious project "Titan." We've also got a brand new trailer for Dead Space 2 AND the Dead Space animated film, plus the first trailer and screens from Uncharted 3, and a whole lot more. Oh, and Max eats a cookie.
TGIF! Jonathan and Tara prepare for the weekend by gushing about the reason they got into game journalism: Mafia Wars! They also talk about a bevy of cheap, awesome iPhone games, the official Playstation mobile app (not as cool as it sounds), the return of Conan to gaming, the declining ratings of the Video Game Awards, and a whole lot more. We've also got some eye candy in the form of Fallout:New Vegas trailer, and direct-feed Uncharted 3 gameplay! Tara was lucky enough to be at the Uncharted 3 event last weeks, and she shares everything she knows (at least for now).
Jonathan and Tara share their top gifts for the gamer in your life this holiday season (or any season, really), as well as look forward to some awesome games in 2011. Call of Duty Black Ops is getting a new map pack, including an ice rink, Retro City Rampage is gonna be downloadable on a few platforms, and the mysterious FEZ looks awesome. Also, the mouth drools at 8GB cartridges for the 3DS.
Jonathan and Tara are back in the motherland to celebrate the holidays with their families, so Carnage and Scoville have invaded the studio for the day. There's not really much in the way of gaming news today, so we're getting wacky with some holiday craziness. We run down the best snow levels, our favorite (gaming-related) holiday memories, and the games you definitely do not want to get for Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone! See you next week for our gala awards show.
