Say what you will about McDonalds, but so many Happy Meal toys were my jam growing up -- especially the Pokemon line. Japan is getting a new set starting next week, complete with a Pikachu ring toss, a Fennekin...wand......

Too little too late for Wii U?

Even though the Wii U hasn't captured that coveted soccer mom demographic with its followup to the Wii, Nintendo isn't giving up. Like any good company, you have to know your audience and you have to cater to that audience --...

Destructoid has launched its fifth and final GDC Daily Lunch Chronicles and interim cameraman Mike Cosimano again screwed up the sound. Instead of letting him get cute with ragtime music and title cards like last time, we're...

Daily Lunch Chronicles
Mar 08

We didn't have usual cameraman Kenny Redublo during our fourth lunch of GDC (see us dining with Dale here) and things went a bit awry. Our substitute cameraman Mike Cosimano had some fun with it, though, with some silent mov...

Daily Lunch Chronicles

The second lunch of GDC was much messier than the first, which you can watch here. Today (well, two days ago, actually) we went with an American staple, the "Hammed Burger," so named for the first woman who ever went totally...

We're at the Game Developers Conference all week. GDC is pretty cool, but also a convention, which means gross convention center lunches. We want to have nice lunches all week. Not too nice. Downtown food is overpriced, even...

Everyone has their morning rituals. Some people need their coffee. Others jog. I peruse Japanese website Gigazine hoping to see pictures of bizarre and wonderful foods. It's rarely videogame related, so I haven't shared this ...

But they have a cooler commercial
I love Japanese commercials. They're produced with such unbridled enthuisasm that it's hard to not get excited for what they're selling -- even if it's McDonalds. Nintendo has partnered up once again with the fast food chain...

Yes, they really have Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain cardboard box candy at Tokyo Game Show 2014. We were stupid enough to spend 640 yen (about $6) on eight pieces of what looks to be tiny squares of chocolate crisped rice...

Every so often Capcom decides that it's time to parade Mega Man around, reminding us that they used to pump out a ton of good games for him while they sit back and collect royalties. The next really cool not-Mega Man game eve...

These Sonic-themed chili dogs and onion rings look pretty tasty


I think I'd just go buy them instead of make them

I'm not sure why Sonic's favorite food is chili dogs, but whatever. Rosanna Pansino, star of my favorite videogame cooking show Nerdy Nummies, has created a Sonic-themed meal here in the form of Sonic chili dogs with onion r...

Slow news day?
This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead.

One of the difficulties with comedy is that describing or paraphrasing a joke frequently makes it cease to be funny, so it's hard to convey Jazzpunk's charm without completely squashing its humor in the process. However,...

What is wrong with you people
Jan 09
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
Pizza Hut's director of public relations, Doug Terfehr, has told Polygon that they've sold $1 million in pizzas through the Xbox 360 in four months. Doug goes on to say that they're "not done in" the gaming space, and the company is having ongoing conversations with other potential gaming partners. I think you all know exactly how I feel about this news.

Remember those awesome Japanese Mario Happy Meal toys we showed last week? Well now there are a bunch a video's confirming just how cool they are.  Okay... well maybe they aren't that cool, but they would look pretty classy on any gaming shelf.
