Virtually Heroes is the worst videogame film yet

Being that I'm covering Sundance Film Festival for Flixist (Dtoid's hot younger sister site that is totally legal and wants your number) this week, I had the great displeasure of watching Virtually Heroes. For those unfamilia...

Del Toro is a Valve fan, GlaDOS movie voice is authorized photo
Del Toro is a Valve fan, GlaDOS movie voice is authorized
by Chris Carter

If you've seen the trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming film, Pacific Rim, you might notice a little someone popping in to lend a guest voice. Yep, Portal's classic crazed computer GlaDOS is making a cameo appearance -- at least, a voice based on GlaDOS will be.

After the trailer first debuted, many gaming fans were keen to note the homage, and were concerned that Valve may have a potential lawsuit on their hands. Well, that's not going to happen, according to the Toronto Sun, as Del Toro obtained full permission from Valve to use the voice.

Also in the same article, Del Toro notes that his cancelled game inSANE is coming closer to a release. When asked about potential suitors, Del Toro states, “We are in talks with a very, very big company. I can’t say who, but it’s one of the big ones. They really responded to the game, they responded to what we were trying."

Flixist reviewed Silent Hill: Revelations 3D!

Matthew Razak was scheduled to promote the review for Silent Hill: Revelations 3D over on Flixist, but apparently his stupid office has Destructoid blocked. Can't think why! In any case, it falls to me to do the cross-pollina...

Get psyched with a brand new Wreck-It Ralph trailer

Man, the more I hear about Wreck-It Ralph, the more excited I get. The Disney CGI film starring John C. Reilly as a Donkey Kong-esque villain-turned-hero has been hitting all the right buttons. I've been waiting for "the cat...

An almost interview with the Indie Game: The Movie gang photo
An almost interview with the Indie Game: The Movie gang
by Jonathan Holmes

I came this close to interviewing the creators of Indie Game: The Movie James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot, alongside a couple of the subjects of the film, Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen of Team Meat. I was nervous and tired, but really excited to talk to all of them as I think they are really great. I'm not just saying that because I am in the movie for two seconds and because there is a level called Destructoid in Super Meat Boy. I'm saying that because these people really are great!

Sadly, there were technical problems that erased about 45 minutes of the interview, leaving us to start this video with Edmund McMillen half way finished with answering a question. The question was about what it was like to be the subject of a documentary that may go on to be seen by millions. Then there were the sudden appearances of the star of original Indie Game: The Movie short subject film and Aquaria developer Alec Holowaka, only to have him suddenly disappear, unrecorded and unloved (sorry Alec!). Then there was the fact that this was actually Allistair Pinsof's interview in the first place, and I was really just there for... moral support? 

I'm actually not really sure why I was there. 

Anyway, I'm sad that I didn't to as well in this interview as I had hoped, but I'm really, really grateful that I had the opportunity to be involved it at all. I hope you feel the same when you watch it.
