This insane Samus Halloween costume looks like an official Metroid promotion

Having been to countless conventions and covered all sorts of anime, gaming and movie news for over a decade, I’ve seen some really impressive outfits and cosplay. But in recent years, especially when it comes to the Metroid arena, this is easily one of the most impressive Samus costumes I’ve seen in a while. Created by Wargaming (World of Tanks) developer Brenden McCormack and his wife Laura, this Samus costume...

Whatcha been playing this week, Destructoid?

Are the nights drawing in faster in your neck of the woods? Here in the U.K. we have put the clock backs, which lead to dark mornings and darker evenings. This can be tough on the old noodle, and I’ve found myself losing balance on numerous occasions this week. But I have a few good friends – both here on site and in real life – and they have done their best to keep me on an even keel… well, as even as...

Podtoid wants your questions and also some help figuring out what’s up with Brandon Routh’s head here

Seriously, look how big his head is there. That thing is huge. Is this a bad photoshop, or is his head four feet closer to the camera than the rest of his body? Sorry, this has been the only thing on my mind since yesterday when I bought that Legend of Zelda NES cartridge ornament from Hallmark and saw this movie being advertised on the page. As much as I fantasize about Brandon Routh as a hot fireman — and I do — he...

Overcooked: All You Can Eat will launch alongside the PS5, but the Xbox Series X version is coming a little later

It’s going to be an adjustment moving from Nintendo Switch to PlayStation 5 for Overcooked: All You Can Eat after spending dozens of hours with the former, but having everything from Overcooked 1 and 2 under one roof – including 200+ levels, quicker loads, and 4K/60FPS support – will be such a step up. Team17 is now planning to get this two-game remaster out in time for the PS5 launch on November 12. (Previously, we were just...

Ugh, next-gen racing games look so damn good

During almost any other time, I would not be interested in Dirt 5. I say this confidently because I was not interested in Dirt Rally 2.0 or Dirt 4. There have been seven previous Dirt games (!!) and I did not have a lick of interest in any of them. Dirt 5 is different though because it looks so goddamn pretty on PS5 and Xbox Series X. That’s the way it goes with new hardware. Racing games are a technical showcase because they...
