Love to hate it


Indie game developers are certainly an outspoken lot, aren't they? Phil Fish, creator of the dimension-flipping XBLA platformer FEZ, finally decided to hop on the Monster Hunter train starting with Ultimate for 3DS. He thinks...

While many videogame characters are beloved around the world, there are a handful that are reviled by a large majority of the gaming population. And, to be honest, “reviled” may not even be strong enough a word. I...

In the spirit of Shaq-Fu, Beyoncé pretending to like Rhythm Heaven, and countless other videogame/mainstream media pairings, Square Enix and the NBA have announced Final Fantasy XIII as a presenting partner of the 2010...

What is it about this obese Mario mask that makes it so damned terrifying? My immediate thought was the tongue. Oh God, the tongue! But then my eyes were drawn to the bulbous red nose. Has Mario ever had a red nose before? He...



Yes friends, from here on out, Luc Bernard will officially be known as "The Mack", and he has returned. Ironically, his theme song is not the 70's funk hit by the same name, it's actually What's up doc, can we rock?...

It appears as if Too Human's long and painful development has finally been put to rest and, presumably, Denis Dyack can go back on his meds again. That's right, Too Human is gold and ready to go. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the (...

That sounds infinitely more perverse than I intended it, but it's too late now. Thanks to the talents of graphic illustrator Alexandra Neonaki, showing the geek guy or gal in your life that you heart them is as easy as hittin...

Yesterday we told you that GamePolitics found news that Jack Thompson might be attending the Game Developers Conference as a keynote speaker, but it turns out that the GDC knew nothing of this. Now it looks like Jack is that...

Although they may have gotten more complicated and deep over the years, videogames have definitely not become more challenging. Not to say that is a negative thing by any means, it is just hard to compare the tu...

Capcom has announced that they will be publishing the Camelot developed Wii title, We Love Golf!. Previously revealed under a more clever name, Wii Love Golf, for Japanese territories, the title will be coming to North Americ...

This series focuses on the most memorable videogame moments of all time, but who says some of these self-proclaimed amazing moments aren’t unforgettable for all the wrong reasons? Just because something is...

I was totally unaware that the BBC got owned in the face when it was revealed that a number of its phone-in competitions were fakes. That's hilarious, especially as the good old British Broadcasting Corporation is a huge pile...

It's been called a gigantic mouse, a pregnant wii, and the new MAC. But what is it really? I wish it was a fuzzy logic Japanese rice cooker/Xbox 360 combo, but it's just a concept replacement chasis called "Ovo&...

The word hardcore when applied to gamers tends to paint a picture of a person who plays games like Halo, Grand Theft Auto, and Gears of War, not someone who sits with his little Nintendo DS and plays hours of Cooking Mama or ...

If you are ever in a situation where your little sister complains about a Mario game being too hard, please just slap her and show her this video. Created by a random somebody in Taiwan (my vote is for escaped mental patient...

Doctor Freud would love feminists because they seem to be as obsessed with penises as he was. Mighty Ponygirl over at Feminist Gamers recently wrote a piece about how Tetris is a sexist game. I wasn't sure if she was kid...

We all get frustrated playing video games. No one likes to lose and no one likes to run the same level over and over again trying to complete it. It sucks when a game isn’t going your way. How each of us reacts to ...

Naruto may be the butt of every Japanator joke, but the popular anime franchise does have a huge following. Underachieving children everywhere will eat it up!  This new trailer, however craptacular in video quality, doe...

HardestBoss spotted a video of an early Japanese E3 build version of Resident Evil 4. These concepts were dropped from the final game because it was "too paranormal" to mesh with the game's ultimate storyline: T...

A ShackNews interview with Bethesda reveals that the company wanted to bring Elder Scrolls Oblivion to the Wii, but the system obviously doesn't have enough under the hood to support the game. This is unfortunate, as the...

In addition to tracking the most lurked through stories on Destructoid, we also keep an eye out of the most active discussions.  You can always find this info on the top right hand corner menu right above the Top 20 Buzz...

Licensed games, there's a reason they suck. Most of the time they are pathetic rush jobs and just an excuse to make an easy buck while never putting that much effort in quality control. I'm used to this, I understan...

I don't like MMORPGs. I don't like the concept of it and I despise what it can do to a person. But I'd rather go play World of Warcraft than to ever get into Second Life. If I had to sacrifice my life for the gami...

Episodic content isn't going away. No, it is instead leaking into all kinds of franchises and into the dirty minds of those that ruined the concept of "expansion pack" for everyone. I'm pointing the finger a...

Over a year ago, G4TV opted to change their station format from an all tech/gaming channel to more of an all guy channel with new programming like that of SpikeTV, in hopes that they would draw in more viewers and advertis...

Yeah, you're l33t as hell. You can trounce waves of fearsome baddies without breaking a sweat. You've made your friends scream in anguish over Xbox Live and humiliated them with your mad skills. Little girls cry at th...

Ask any gamer that watched G4TV before 2005 about the state of the station's programming now and expect him to spit on the ground, set a picture of Kevin Pereira on fire, and then curl up in ball to cry about the good ...

Having a hard time coming up with that perfect comeback on why the PS3 sucks compared to the Nintendo Wii?  Tired of never knowing what to say when you want to slam Xbox 360? Well, Ottsel the Obnoxious Sidekick has post...

While surfing on my favorite blog to hate, Official Shrub.com, I came across this documentary, "Damsels, Vixens and Buff Guys: Sexism in Video Games", which looks at the stereotypes used in video games to depict b...

So, I've finally crossed 100 posts on Destructoid (this being #101), and am a little high, considering I've only been here about a month. Within this short period of time, I have managed to piss Summa off on multiple ...

As a gamer, it's not commonplace to come across women, especially attractive ones while playing a few rounds of Warsong Gulch or while 'fragging n00bz' in UT2K4. Compounding this problem is the fact that there...

Are you sitting down? I'll wait ... OK. Look what this fool from EA had to say about Gears of War. Keep in mind, we're talking about EA, Electronic Arts: Alain Tascan, general manager for EA Montreal, has revealed that he ...

That's right, I'm throwin' the mutha f*ckin' hammer down! I'm tired of looking at that dapper Kevin Pereira and Geoff Keighley walk around like they own the place. And 1UP guys, I'm talking to you too! Put down that donut L...

I don't really understand why every retro XBLA title that comes out has to have some bug or crazy crash or some other malfunction that really shouldn't exist after you plunk down your Microsoft points to buy it. Contra is t...

My favorite game in the whole wide world, Elebits for the Wii, has been smacked down with the delay stick. Despite previously promised as a launch day title by Konami, it seems that the quality of this stellar title didn't ...

Yahoo brings us the news that Microsoft has finally declared it's often-delayed, often-criticized new OS, Windows Vista, gold. It should be winking at you seductively from store shelves in early 2007. While many people com...

For the rest of us who have yet to engage in a hot and heavy makeout session with Microsoft, here's a killer new Gears of War video. We won't ruin it for you, just watch the insanity ...

As I'm sure you're all aware by now, former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was sentenced today to the gallows for his crimes against all that is holy to us decent folk. So, in honor of this happy occasion, we at Destructoid wo...

[Editor's note: After examining the "list" further, it is apparent the maker of the list has no clue what he or she is talking about. Clearly, I have none either. Still, it's worth it just for the Ducktales picture. --RS] ...

Game bugs and glitches be damned! EA is still gonna turn a profit off the ignorant gamer who sees an EA logo and has a "must buy" light blaze inside their empty skull. According to Gamasutra, EA's profits have hit record hi...
