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.
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!
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.
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?
It's the first humpday of 2011, and just to honor that we've got a show packed full of buttcheeks just for you. Tara and Max mourn the loss of a new friend, chat about iPads and iPad 2s, discuss Nintendo's latest innovation, and ponder universe with a He-Man videogame. There's also buttcheeks.
Happy Monday everyone. We've got a lot of news for you today - there's our last of the CES rundowns with some very lackluster accessories, the latest dirt on the 3DS' batteries and launch titles thanks to Nintendo World, and a relative TON of new info on Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, thanks to Game Informer. Max also gets to talk about Jade and Goro from Mortal Kombat, so everyone's happy. In some sad news, Gearbox's Alien: Colonial Marines will NOT be seeing a release this year, thanks to Duke Nukem Forever.
Today is a very special day. Why, you might ask? Well, because Tara had a post devoted to her on 4chan last night! Whether this is the pinnacle or the nadir of our lives, we're excited - so excited that we've brought you another episode full of great news. Like all legitimate news programs we start out with a retraction of some of Monday's lies, then move on to indie game Amensia: Dark Descent making some money, take a stop in the jail to talk about Wesley Snipes' new game called JULIUS STYLES, and of course spend time talking about the 3DS. The latest news is that the 3DS will be region locked, dissuading potential importers, and that the games will cost 49.99. Ouch.
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.
TGIF everyone. No time for chit chat, lets get to it: today Max and Tara run down the week in reviews thanks to Jim Sterling, talk about the Capcom/Splosion Man debacle, realize the reality of the Dreamcast Collection, and rant about the stupidity of Bulletstorm.
The substitute teachers are in today, and they've brought a wacky episode. Tara runs down her top 5 favorite Android games, while Max bathes in the melancholic realization of his top 5 Blackberry games. Also, with the impending release of Marvel vs Capcom 3, we've been thinking about some other franchise crossover games we might like. Let us know what yours are!
