Capcom teases fake Mega Man Vs Capcom Vs Marvel game

Damn you, Capcom. Why do you tease? This has to be the zillionth time you've advertised a fake game that I'd kill to actually play. Lego Strider, the NES Dark Void port, all just as awesome as (if not more awesome than) your ...

Talking to the Needlemouse: The Emerald Hills developers

There's been a lot of talk about the brand new, 2D, high-definition Sonic game. It's been something people have wanted for a long time, and the idea that this could be a sort of “Sonic 4” is pretty damn amazing....

Grue renewed: Fallout 3's Reign of Grelock is playable

Sadly, this article isn't about a Zork remake (not that a text-only game would benefit from bump mapping or bloom lighting) -- I just needed a catchy headline that would attract text adventure enthusiasts. If the phrase "...

A Star Radish gameplay video, growing in the wild

Ok, if you aren't some sort of SNK enthusiast, bear with me here. Earlier this year, on April Fool's Day, SNK Playmore announced a game called Star Radish, an 8-bit Neo Geo shmup made by a "Mikadosoft." Everyone tho...

Could Close Range be the funniest faux FPS ever?

It's highly possible that it is the funniest faux FPS ever, but I've been known to get worked up over incredibly stupid things before. Then again, haven't we all? The Onion has a first-hand report on Close Range, the anticipa...

Dead Rising 2 trailer? Probably not, but this is still pretty cool

I know we cried wolf before, but that was for humor's sake. That other stuff? Definitely not even close to looking real, and even Capcom gave us sh*t for posting that. This at least looks like something real, or the intro to...

Introducing the wave of the future: The Pii

The worst part about this video is that it's more or less indistinguishable from a real Wii rip-off product advertisment. Vii, Wii, Pii, they all sound kind of like something you might see peddled at that shady random electro...

Destructoid exclusive: Alan Wake TGS 08 teaser

I think I'm losing my mind: Extra Mario Bros

 There are times in my life where I think I'm going insane. When I'm up late watching Comedy Central and they actually start dropping the f-bomb despite it being basic cable. When I go to a McDonald's and see that they s...

Fake game Friday: Hatred and Pride

More often than not, modern videogames aren't really about choices. Yeah, we've got branching storylines and local agency, but in pretty much every game there is always a "good" or "best" ending which play...

Fake game Friday: Player versus Character

I just finished reading The People of Paper by Salvador Plascencia, and it gave me a pretty unusual (but hopefully interesting) idea for a short, independent game.Initially charting the picaresque adventures of a bed-wetting ...

Wii knockoff Vii's Chinese television commercial, also disassembly

A few months ago we told you about a Chinese Wii one-off called the Vii. This product steals not only Nintendo's design and control scheme, but also bites from its marketing and advertising model, as it's aimed at families, ...
