With the PC version of Modern Warfare 2, Infinity Ward earned itself no fans with a number of unpopular moves, most notably the lack of dedicated servers. It seems not even the makers of the most successful shooter in the wor...

DreamHack's StarCraft 2 championship livestream is live

DreamHack, the Swedish über-LAN party, is livestreaming a StarCraft 2 championship right now. Go check it out in the Justin.tv stream above, or here for the Swedish video as a backup! This is not the actual LAN party, but a "DreamHack Stockholm Invitational" event in Stockholm. Yes, the one in Sweden. See the official site for more info, but good luck finding anything there. [Thanks Kaggen!]

This pack might make lugging to your LAN parties easier

If there's one thing that can convince me to never participate in a LAN again, it's packing up my computer and carrying it somewhere else. I have an ITX machine that wouldn't be a problem to move, but then there's all the oth...

Halo 3: Thundercunt
by Papa Niero
Four extremely low quality Halo 3 videos were leaked on the interweb tubes last night and, of course, were swiftly removed. The only thing we are left with is Thundercunt and his fate with another man's balls. One more awful video after the jump. The leak has been foiled, but traces of what was shown and reader comments can be found here.
 
In other news, a Dtoid forum member has spotted what the Legendary Edition packaging will be like. Hint: big green helmet included.

The AssassiNation Machinima contest
by Tom Fronczak

Destructoid loves having gaming contests, but we can't be responsible for all of the kickass gaming giveaways on the Internet. This contest is sponsored by NBC Universal and ties into the new movie Smokin' Aces. Together with Machinima.com, they are giving away over a $1,000 to whoever can submit the best gaming kill and raid machinima montages at their Web site.

The contest starts today and runs until Jan. 19, so crack your knuckles and tie your curb stomping shoes -- you've got just under three weeks to make the best death demo reel possible. Not just any killspree or headshot will do -- mix the montage to music like in the video above and make your murders memorable.

The grand prize is $1,000, second is $500, and third is $250, so it might be worth throwing a luxurious LAN party just to capture enough killing for this contest. If you win, I'm sure the money would cover all the pizza and beer you spent on the party. Breaking necks to break even sounds like a deal to me.
