All Mega64 wants for Christmas is Just Dance 3


Dec 21
// Tony Ponce
When game publishers ask Mega64 to make a commercial for one of their upcoming titles, do they go in with any knowledge of Mega64's body of work? Do they just think, "Oh! Funny Internet people! Here's some money. Send us the video by Wednesday"? Anyway, here's the Mega64 Just Dance 3 commercial. I said, "What the fudge?" at the 1:38 mark. Mega64: "DANCEMAS" Just Dance 3 Commercial [YouTube]

I realize that my criticism of EA's business practices may come across as overzealous at times, but even the most dedicated of the publisher's defenders can't possibly stick up for this video -- perhaps the greatest crime El...

Dec 20

We've posted plenty of Dorkly Bits videos in the past, much to your delight or displeasure. I agree that some can be dry or forced, but every so often, something magical happens and everybody is happy. I'd like to think a lo...

Slow Enslaved sales due to a 'busy holiday season'


Feb 11

As we've all gathered by now, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West didn't sell as well as hoped in spite of hype and marketing. Namco Bandai has placed the blame on a busy holiday period.  "To be perfectly frank, I think as a c...

Merry Christmas from Destructoid: Tell us what you got!

Dec 25 // Jim Sterling
Sterling: I already got an early gift, which is the rather nice coat that has popped up in Jimquisitions. I also got a very appreciated Father Ted boxset. Watched the Christmas special this morning and it is still hilarious stuff. Oh, and a Trinity Killer Bobblehead. Aziz: I think I got trolled by King Friday as I know own a giant Jeff Gordon NASCAR number "24" poster. So, uh, that's the only Christmas thing I expect. Wait, I'll count those cookies from 2K too. Niero: GorillaNation sent me monkey slippers Grim: This was the best Christmas in years because I built myself a shiny new PC with my own money. No need for a middleman. If I get anything worth mentioning, I'll do another response. Sarkar: My mom already told me she got me a sweater. If anything else comes along, I'll let you folks know. And MERRY CHRISTMAS, Y'ALL! Bennett: I got an iPhone4 and another secret, really amazing present that I can't tell you guys about. But it's amazing. :) Chester: I got some awesome stuff, but am under NDA until next Christmas. Tolentino: Got four t-shirts and a luggage weighing scale (wut), but I GAVE my 11-year old nephew a copy of Demon's Souls. Will he think it a gift or like a lump of coal? Long: I got precisely what I needed most: a plane ticket home and clothes. Merry Christmas, everyone! :D North: I got a ton of shit. I'm fuckin' spoiled. Holmes: I don't know about you guys, but at this point in my life, the only stuff I get for Christmas is stuff that I didn't want enough to buy myself, and stuff that I didn't know existed. In the first colum, I got four games; Super Mario All-Stars Wii, Vanquish, Goldeneye, and Fling Smash. All great games, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a tad partial towards Dick. In the second column I got some Pac-Man pants. They are... Pac-Man pants. I will wear them.  Finally, since I was back at my folks' house, I went into my old room and found a bunch ot +10 year old stuff that I plan to use as set dressing for a new show I'm working on. I was particularly happy to find and old Servbot plushie, my import copy of Tobal 2, and...  A Boglin. A one-handed Boglin.  Pics to come. Razak: Ok, not all my gifts since I was at my future in-laws house, but I got pleny of candy, a hilarious cow hat, two gorgeous ties, a pair of James Bond cufflinks, a book on Eiji Tsuburaya (the guy behind Godzilla and Ultraman), some kitchen stuff, and. Schott brothers pea coat (basically bthe nicest pea coat you can own, its amazing). More to come when I see my parents and other family tomorrow.
