Capturing cool, beautiful, or otherwise standout moments in videogames can be such a joy, and I'm hopeful that more developers will follow the recent examples set by inFamous: Second Son and The Last of Us Remastered by inclu...
When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret. "This looks like something I would really like, but might not appeal to a ton of other people." He r...

Now that PAX East 2013 is well behind you and you've all finally sobered up, I thought it would be about time to share this year's group shot! Rumor has it that it was so cold during this year's photo shoot that Hamza literal...

We had a great time filled with photos of corgis, name that tune, and a music video that you must absolutely see, "Fatty Boom Boom."We have a few photos from the panel, including the group photo shown above. Thanks to everyone who made it out, and be sure to catch the rest of our coverage from MAGFest 11.
Destructoid is here at MAGFest. Are you? We had a blast today listening to the amazing rap stylings of Random (AKA Mega Ran), who impressed us with a freestyle session based on items that members of the audience held up. The ...
[This weekend Destructoid is reporting live from RTX in Austin, Texas, the community based gaming expo for Rooster Teeth fans and everyone else.] Yes, that's Team Rocket cosplayers hanging out with a stormtrooper. Do you now ...
I only had a few hours to spend at BlizzCon 2011 this past weekend, and I wanted to do as much fun stuff as possible in that very limited amount of time. I had already played StarCraft II and Diablo III (and don't regularly ...
While Dale North slaved away, covering the pre-TGS Sony Press Conference, Hamza and I traveled to Shinagawa, Tokyo to check out some Namco Bandai games, last week. Since Hamza loves Gundam, I love the Tales series and everyon...
If you watch The Destructoid Show, you'll know we've been doing a contest to give away three Catalyst 3DS cases, sponsored by the fine folks at CM4. Of course, since we're a gaggle of idiot children, the contest was "make a p...
As some of you may have heard, the camera with almost all of the pictures from the weekend was stolen on Saturday night, complete with the memory card holding the secrets of all the astonishing times we had at PAX East. I'm t...
Every time Destructoid gets together it is awesome. I haven't had a bad time when I've gotten to hang out with this awesome and totally amazing community. However, MAFest 9 was seriously epic to an extent I couldn't even fath...
(Hey everyone at MAGFest. Hope last night was awesome as it was for me. Remember to roll up for the Destructoid photo. Here the previously posted details.) As it is with all great, history-making events throughout time Destru...
I loved the photography aspect of the original Dead Rising, even if it was a bit janky at times. So, I'm thrilled to learn that the mechanic will be returning in Dead Rising 2: Case West. In an interview with Eurogamer, ...
PAX Prime 10 is less than two hours away, and the show floor is filled to the brim with doodads and whatchits for your sick, sick pleasure. To get you further pumped, the Piki: Geek blog has posted two sets of photos of exhib...
Photojournalist Iason Athanasiadis has documented something amazing. It's an arcade in Kabul, Afganhistan, and for the kids and young adults who go there to play it's one of their only escapes. Most of the children who show u...
Even though Jonathan visited Blizzard HQ twice over the summer and brought back a few photos, Blizzard has always been a rather secretive company. In an industry full of leaks and rumors, Blizzard keeps most of its info and i...
I love to get down with great music and videogames, so when Sony offered me (and three Dtoiders) the opportunity to head down to Columbia, MD, and play some PS3 games while taking in some live music at the Virgin Mobile FreeF...
Having been to Blizzard twice this summer, I've put together a little collection of pictures of their offices and all the awesome stuff they have. As if you didn't know from the success of World of Warcraft, Blizzard is basic...
Kotaku posted about a new French gaming magazine called Amusement a few days ago that caught my eye and today they got some very cool images from one of the mag's stories. I'm going two ways with this story so stick with me. ...
Yesterday, Nintendo held a launch event for Wii Sports Resort in New York City’s Times Square, allowing the public to try out the game three full days before its launch on Sunday, July 26th. They went all-out for this o...
The Epic Games offices are...epic. Well, they're epic in a sort of subdued, business-like kind of way. The folks there were kind enough to show me around the offices after playing a bit of the upcoming Unreal Tournament III T...
Have you ever heard of the games industry position "Art Services Screenshot Associate" before? Me either. I've always figured that there was someone out there that did something like this, but I didn't know that it ...
I know what you’re thinking — “Goldarnit, another blasted GTA IV comparison post?!” (And if you are thinking that, well, the 1920s called; they want their mild oaths back.) But I’m happy to repor...
When it comes to the talented and accomplished pool of game industry folk that we here at Destructoid have coaxed into being our friends, we seem to have an inherent tendency to show them to you (like teh Pokemons, as it were...
As we wrap up our 2007 Tokyo Game Show coverage, we thought it would be fun to share our photo "scrapbook" from the event. It has been divided into parts (more coming soon) for ease of browsing. In the almost 100 st...
As promised, here is Destructoid's attempt to "review" the various parties of this year's Tokyo Game Show. Some might think that doing so would be a bit tasteless, as these are usually private events, but people com...
I recently heard that some non-Destructoid readers thought that this site was something of a "boy's club." That was a bit hard for me to understand seeing as how we have more female writers than the "others," and that we have...
We'll say right off that you're only going to appreciate this video/slideshow if:a. you've played Final Fantasy VIIb. you liked Final Fantasy VIIc. you actually still remember Final Fantasy VII Seriously, if you don't fi...
Watch out for falling Tetris blocks for the next 3 miles ... what?!  Wouldn't that road sign confuse the heck out of you?Well, luckily for you and your insurance company, these signs aren't real. Created by readers of So...
When the public masses encounter the shining silver legend that is the official Mr. Destructoid Robot, it's not uncommon for their tiny influential brains to become overwhelmed with high levels of awesome. At times this resul...
The game I'm sure many first-person shooter and Sony-related FPS fans have been dying to hear about was eventual appearance of the beloved SOCOM franchise on the PlayStation 3. So, of course, it's coming to the syst...

Check out the pictures here or in our gallery for some of that behind the scenes goodness.And please, support good gaming content and watch EG every weekday at 4 p.m. Pacific/7 p.m. Eastern. 
Pikachu always seemed like a cool pet to have; he would be cute enough to attract the ladies and at the same time he could safe guard your house and shock intruders. Only problem would be instead of biting you like a dog woul...
 Well, it's time to end the Ideazon keyboard and mouse contest. We had plenty of awesome entries in the contest, and so we've collected some of the best in the gallery down below. I'd really like to thank all...
As seen on underaged boobs: Apparently there's a Fall Out Boy T-Shirt with four Japanese Smoking Robot figures on it [source withheld!].  Lucky us!  At least it's not a EmoBandname #32 shirt. Domestic take...
A couple of weeks ago I asked the brave men of Destructoid to send me their sexiest Nerdcore pictures and they responded. My e-mail inbox has been full of the hottest gamer bodies just dying to see the light of day, so now...
Thanks everyone for pardoning our one week hiatus with site contests, as we had our hands full with gadgets, porn stars, and tournament gaming all last week. Here are the winners of the Windows Vista swag, the wildly peculiar...
The verdict may be pending on last week's Photoshop contests, so while you wait, here's a new one! We're giving away three copies of Everquest 2: Echoes of Faydwer which includes the full game, the previous two expansions (D...
No, your favorite faux metal gods aren't coming to your preferred next-gen console. For that matter, does anyone really care since Justin Hawkins checked himself into rehab? Note to all fake bands out there: the cocaine i...

Featured in the latest OPM, here are some scans from the PlayStation 3 version of Burnout 5 that a lovely little man over at Operation Burnout put up. Pretty, huh? I honestly usually hate racing games, but Burnout has always been a series I can enjoy time and time again. I'm a simple man. I like explosions.
If you're a daily browser of Digg like I am, then you already know about the anti-Sony and PlayStation 3 insanity that is taking hold of it like a G.I. Joe grip gone to hell. There's pictures of boxes, there's EB...
Had enough of the holidays yet? Well, get ready for more anyway. After showing you some of what Rockstar sent over yesterday, now Blizzard has sent me this lovely card. Bad part: I only have my crappy cell phone camera to take the pictures here at the Dtoid dungeon headquarters. Good part: Cutest. Card. Ever. 
Thought I'd share the rest of the images from last week's PlayStation 3 launch at the Sony Store in NYC. Good times were certainly had by all.
Let's face it -- with perhaps the exception of Nex and his world-famous hairpiece, gamers are generally not what you would rush to call sexy bastards. Sure, Nintendo's Wii marketing materials may be full of shiny happ...
