New Site Madness: Almost there! Code updates hourly   |   Report a bug

Today's World Famous Portmanteau will be yet another experiment, as the "winner" will get to take over the feature this Friday while I play the booth babes and take pictures of the games at Blizzcon. The other difference is t...
Just to make things hard on you, Tron Knotts has dropped his latest hit single on Megaupload. After navigating a Playstation Store-esque labyrinth of frustration, you will be treated to a song that is best described as an ama...
According to the mysteriously-named Playstation Blog, Michael Shorrock, the Director of Third Party Relations at SCEA, has announced that Geoff Keighly has announced that Rockstar Games has announced an exclusive, brand new f...
Aww Comic-Con, the time of year where the coolest of the cool and the baddest of the bad meet up to talk about bangin' bitches and back alley knife fights. Destructoid will be here just trying not to get a bottle broken over ...
I thought that my emotions were no longer a working part of me and that my tear ducts and vage had dried up long ago, but apparently there is some humanity left in me after all. Jeff Veasey, or "CJayC" as he is more...
Not awesome because this game looks cool mind you, awesome because this guy is really freaking excited to talk about it. As the last of Destructoids E3 coverage rolls in (that show was like sooo July 13th...), this is a fitti...
Assassin's Creed was one of the live demos at the Microsoft press conference at E3 last week, and all I could keep thinking was "Goddamn, Jade Raymond looks hot!" Aside from that fact, this was the first time gamers...
Burnout Paradise was one of the few games at this years E3 to actually draw a reasonable line (and by line, I mean three humans and a Frag Doll). As always, it's looking quite amazing, with a lot of big changes this time ...
Shown behind a slightly closed door at Gamecocks EIEIO this year was Dungeon Hero. As the trailer (after the jump) implies, this forthcoming PC / Xbox 360 game aspires to be the anti-dungeon-crawling dungeon crawler. While no...
For those of you still slacking off on your Dtoid Theme Song entry and the chance to win a complete Rock Band game set, congratulations, the bar has just been raised. Behold, GuitarAtomik's IKILLPXLS entry, titled It's Time F...
Everyone has played a game and thought “You know what they should add in the sequel?” Sometimes you would get lucky and said feature would make it into numero dos, but chances are more often than not the sequel ca...
GameTap recently launched a new animated shorts series where influential and highly stylized artists and writers have the chance to give their favorite games a reimagining of sorts. On the waiting list of creators is Jim Lee...
This E3 was a lot like the old E3's, except that it was totally freaking retarded and free stuff was hard as hell to come by. Luckily, my supposed Jewish ancestry gives me a heightened ability to gather mass amounts of swag, ...
Being a game journalist is serious business. You have to play video games, collect swag, and get drunk at private parties with Cliffy B, then come home and talk smack about poor people and immigrants. Still, there's quite...
I'm a big supporter of IPs staying true to their origins. Paul Anderson's vision of Resident Evil? Raul Julia's vision of M. Bison? Uwe Boll's vision of anything? As a devout gamer, I kinda take them personall...
I was willing to give Project Gotham Racing 4 the benefit of the doubt when it added motorcycles to the mix, as even though this is usually a recipe for disaster, Bizarre Creations has certainly earned my respect for continu...
Fury is an upcoming MMO game that strips away all the grinding and leveling of games like Everquest or World of Warcraft and jumps right down to the nitty gritty of PvP while still retaining the things that make RPG's s...
  Towards the end of the Xbox's lifespan, I had about 75 games for the console that I traded in before GameStop realized they had created a major loophole that made each game worth $15 more than it should have b...
Gamecock's anti-E3 event, EIEIO, was a very chill and completely welcome experience amidst the chaos of jumping from hotel to hotel and appointment to appointment. Located at Hotel California right off the Santa Monic...
So the mystery system was revealed tonight at Microsoft's E3 conference, and it turns out to be the new Halo 3 Special Edition Console. But, that's not all! For all the female players and Smurfs out there, multi-color...
So, this actually looks good. Even the most diehard of Halo fanboys had to admit the multiplayer was graphically underwhelming and the sneak peak at the single player was not so hot either. Holding on to all hope, they insist...
Blue Dragon is one of the most anticipated RPGs of the last five centuries, and now you can get your hands on it. And by now, I mean after you've downloaded the 1.13GB file, suckers!What should you do in the meantime? It's too bad they didn't just release a couple of classic Sega games on XBLA. If only ...[Via SLiFe's clog] 
While gamers will need to wait months for most of the games shown at Microsoft's E3 conference, two titles will be available tonight (or "tomorrow," if you're one of those people) on Xbox Live Arcade. And no...
Behold, Burnout Paradise! Developer Criterion is a company that continually does the unthinkable: it actually makes sequels... that are good. *gasp* I know, right? We can all sit around and argue about how Burnout 3 was or wa...
Welcome to the first ever Destructoid Import Spotlight. Every episode of this feature will take a look at games that never quite make the journey to American shelves. What better way to launch said serial than with Oneechanba...
Screens and scans of the upcoming Soul Calibur spin-off for the Wii have flowed freely as of late, but now you can finally get a chance to see it in action. And I do use the term "action" very loosely, as only the m...
King3vbo has taken the plunge by being the first entry into the Official Destructoid Theme Song Contest, and I can honestly say this is the best entry yet. Unfortunately it's automatically disqualified due to the mass am...
Hmm, what have we here? This is a picture taken from the Microsoft E3 conference rehearsal and posted on Gamerscore Blog (it was quickly taken down immediately afterwords). Will Microsoft be color-coding each of their SKU'...
This video with SCEA president Jack Tretton pretty much encompasses everything that is wrong with Sony this generation. It's like everyone knows the PS3 bombed, and they simply won't admit that things could have gone ...
If Forza 2 was a man and I was a woman, while I was playing it I would have kept thinking to myself "Are you in yet?" But, as underwhelming as that overhyped Microsoft moneymaker is, gamers can always rely on Bizarr...
We all knew it was only a matter of time, and now it looks as if that time has come: Microsoft is implementing codename Falcon in order to reduce overheating in 360s and also greatly reduce the price of manafacturing costs wh...
It seems the Playstation 3 is not the only console getting an unofficial price cut forcefully thrust upon it like mutated genitalia in a Wes Craven remake; as seen in this week's Shop Rite special offers, the Xbox 360 Premiu...
Now that this has been posted in the Dtoid clogs approximately five million thousand billion times, here is the Gears of War E3 trailer that Gamevideos let slip a little bit early. Hey, everyone confuses their July 6ths with ...
Usually I just watch videos with Jade Raymond in them with the sound off and the door to my mom's basement slightly ajar, but apparently she is working on some game I've never heard of. Here you can see the beginning ...
I proudly present The Official Destructoid Theme Song Contest. After decades of trying to figure out a way to somehow turn this into a Photoshop contest, I finally crumbled and decided to just keep it musical. I know, I know ...
In a move that you would only likely see at the end of a sappy romantic comedy or in a Saturn car commercial, Microsoft has faced their biggest problem and reached out to gamers to make everything right. They may have also cu...
Shacknews has new screens and details on Rock Band, a game that certainly needs no introduction at this point. There were several new tracks announced, but I only read the first one and then spent an hour watching custom Gui...
The Denver Post has a report quoting researcher / psychiatrist Jerald Block saying that cutting off Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold from their in-game violence is what led them to their RL violence. That actually makes perfect ...
Microsoft made a doody when they launched the 360 in Japan; instead of having the killer apps they needed to win over the extremely finnicky Jap market, they delivered Tetris Grandmaster Ace and then sat around wondering &quo...
Square Enix has finally unveiled the first non-teaser trailer for their upcoming attempt at doing Ninety-Nine Nights right, and while I will be holding my breath and crossing my fingers hoping this game doens't sound p...
