[Jigsaw]Want to play a game?[/Jigsaw] Last year, Dutch computer animator Tim Hijlkema made a nifty video quiz in which he modeled 20 "planets" after recognizable game environments and tasked viewers with guessing which games...


Waitaminute! Didn't I already post the cover to Archie Comics' Mega Man issue #13? Why, yes I did. That's the normal newsstand / subscriber cover, though. This is the variant cover that you'll only be able to find in comic sh...


Please pardon our dust as we experiment with our new blogging software tonight.  We'll be adding some new exciting features and then immediately taking them away before you've had the chance to truly enjoy them.  Th...

The achievements for Rockstar's upcoming Red Dead Redemption are all at once awesome and and altogether frustrating.On one hand, there's one achievement that you can get for killing and skinning 18 grizzly bears. This is awes...


Unless you only discovered Destructoid yesterday, by now, you should know about Naughty Bear. It'll almost certainly be the best or worst videogame this generation based on what kind of person you are. At this point, I just ...


Your favorite squad of elite, cigar-loving tapirs from 2008's hit game Tapir Wars are back at it in Splash Damage's just-announced new title Tapir Wars 3: It Just Got Chilly. The evil penguins? They're even more vile this ti...


The cover art for Naughty Bear is what happens when American Psycho and Child's Play have a baby. It's not exactly a sight for sore eyes, but it doesn't have to be, either. In fact, the only way it could be any better is if t...


I don't know much about Nier except that it's got a hermaphroditic character that cusses like a sailor and that Square Enix is doing something silly with its distribution. It's being released as two different games in Japan:...


Valcon Games has a new downloadable title called Polar Panic that's due out later next month on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade, it unveiled to us today. It's sort of reminiscent of Bomberman, with the developer put...


Oh, Tekken 6. Like all other online-compatible fighting games, there's always going to be the obligatory outrage against less-than-stellar netcode. Thankfully, Namco Bandai is already on the case. In a general statement sent ...


If there's one thing for me to take away from my time spent on Fallout 3, it's that exploration is one of my favorite things to do in games now that technology is catching up with our imaginations. Combine that with my longin...


It’s no secret that Blizzard Entertainment is crafting another MMO. The studio isn’t commenting on what it is or when it’s hitting of course, but the fact that they are treading on their own territory raises...


What's up with the Xbox LIVE Arcade price changes lately? First it was Madballs, and now TMNT: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled has been dropped from $15 down to a fair $10 ... and it hasn't even been released yet. The switch was c...


Those questions include: Who would win a fight between a Kraken and a stegosaurus? Who would win in a fight between a Kraken, God, and Albert Einstein?The answer, according to 5th Cell's Scribblenauts, is always the Kraken.&n...


This was bound to get awkward.The Destructoid Bordello recently received footage of Derek Jeter, John Cena, Tiger Woods and Reggie Bush at the Gillette Champions of Gaming Event last Tuesday where, I shit you not, they shaved...


Buy our crap!  I'm happy to announce that our T-shirt supplier SplitReason is having a 20% off sale today on all Destructoid merch. including our new Kamikaze shirt (pictured) and the RetroforceGO! shirt (now available i...


I am still torn on this one. While my love for generic action games is well known (I don't care for faux-innovation, just give me a sword and some monsters), there's something about the brawler style action game I truly miss,...


All went a bit quiet on the Golden Axe front, but we now have a selection of new screens from its current-gen revitalization, Golden Axe: Beast Rider. The concept is simple -- take the monster spurring fun of the classic Gold...


As with most delays, it makes us sad that we don't get to play the game sooner, but it's almost always worth the wait to play a more polished and complete version of the title in question. With The Witcher, however, that isn'...


While Chester sits in his hot tub of money and Wii points, he's left the task of this week's Virtual Console updates to me. And what a week it is to be covering this set of releases. Nintendo's been really excited about what'...


It's very easy to get excited playing the Wii. With everything going on, you sometimes feel like you're in the action -- I know I feel that way when I'm playing Red Steel. Well, sometimes people can get hurt from this. Let's...


As far as I'm concerned, it's hard to go wrong with a Golden Axe remake. Just give me a dwarf and a shedload of skeletons to fight and I'm happy. Of course, this is the games industry, and nobody ever does the right thing whe...


There's been a general consensus among Destructoid staff and readership alike that clarification of our reviews process and metrics has been sorely needed for some time, and it's something that I've been wanting to do for awh...


Mass Effect has been passed by the British Board of Film Classification and given a 12-rating. Among the usual talk of mild violence and light cursing, one interesting entry in the board's classification details is that of a ...


Thanks to links from Gay Gamer and SilentHill5.net, I was able to track down the scrumptiousness that is new details on the latest installment in the epic survival horror series. According to the full article in this month's ...


Dick McVengeance has been clamoring for a fleshed-out trailer for the upcoming, PS3-exclusive Folklore, and I hope that his hunger has been satiated. In the above trailer, we get a look at Ellen and Keats, the game's protagon...


In the days before videogame journalism owned my soul, I could often be found in used bookstores perusing shelf after shelf of aging tomes, looking for that lit nerd's holy grail so often hidden there. Although the harsh real...


Podtoid returns for a special appearance fresh from Santa Monica with tales of E3, starstruck encounters with colleagues and industry professionals, and unwanted sexual advances. For this E3 wrap-up edition of Podtoid we'...


My Fourth of July was spent taking it easy (this is a chic phrase for slacking). I've been on a horror kick lately, and I haven't seen a Nightmare on Elm Street film for at least 5 years, so I borrowed a few from a fr...


Digital World Tokyo brings word about some updated PSP software called Everybody's Map 2. The software works with a GPS dongle that's available for somewhere around 5,000 yen ($41 USD), and costs 50,040 yen on to...


A mighty Norse warrior, a fierce Greek fighter, a powerful Egyptian sorcerer and a skilled Aztec shaman --what do they all have in common, exactly? Well, besides being a wicked crew of asskickers, they are the four playable r...


Nyko, the been there done that before company, has proudly released the PlayStation 3's version of the ever so popular Intercooler. While recently garnering a decent review over at IGN, it's just a bit concerning that...


Since today's gamers can't handle cute without a fair dose of abject horror and violence in their games ("Yes! Blood! I am manly and awash in gore!" is a mantra I've uttered once or twice during rounds o...


After a long hiatus, the Podtoid is back.The original Podtoid was shot down over Germany two months ago, and while the Germans deny involvement (and that the War has been over for sixty years), our investigation into his whe...


Ladies and gentlemen, you are staring directly into the rabbit's hole, only this particular hole is filled with people dressed as rabbits dressed as Cloud and Sephiroth (and they are quite possibly having sex with one ano...


It's hard to believe that these NBA Live 2008 images are actual production screenshots. Unlike the somewhat creepy humans in Virtua Tennis 3, the texture and modelling work in next-gen EA sports games continue to push th...


Colony Studios announced their opening today, boasting one of the most well rounded teams in recent memory. Their staff has worked on every major MMO title from Everquest to World of Warcraft (not to mention everything in be...
