Not what I had in mind

I have the feeling that I missed a lot of best PS3/360 games at this year's E3. Shadow Complex and PixelJunk Shooter were supposedly on the show floor, but I never saw them, despite looking high and low for them all three day...
Nintendo has already announced several really promising titles in this morning's press conference (the liveblog is still going on here), and in the excitement of the announcement for Metroid: Other M this will probably be for...
I am the most positive and forgiving person on the planet. When I got punched in the face by a bully in the 5th grade I actually apologized to him for hurting his fist on my large pumpkin head. Then I proceeded to check on hi...
Many of you may have forgotten the promising Faith and a .45, a depression-era co-op game from the same outfit that brought us Total Overdose. Its unique setting and Bonnie & Clyde-esque characters made this game incredib...
First BioShock and now Second Life? It looks like director Gore Verbinski has found a new calling in life!According to recent reports in Variety, the Pirates of the Caribbean director has just signed on to direct a movie base...
Populous DS had promise.  The Molyneux classic primarily involved pointing and clicking, so this game should have translated beautifully with stylus controls on the DS platform. Instead, playing this game is like trying ...
I'm generally testy about the topic of videogames being made into movies, as they are rarely much better than spending the night gazing into the ass of a horse. I have to admit, however, I'm beyond testy over the news that ru...
As Hamza just noted, Haze hits this week, and the developers have been busy answering questions on the Ubi forum. To our surprise, the May 16 update reveals two ugly technical facts about the game: a rather large required ins...
We had a giggle over the Vii last year, but like any massively popular icon of pop culture, the ripoffs are far from over. We spied this recent imitator over at Engadget, with comes with a slew of vaguely identifiable acessor...
More than a year ago, we here at Destructoid told you about NewsBreaker, a Breakout-type game the MSNBC Web site created to get younger people to read its news. The concept was simple: hit a brick, get a news he...
Some people enjoy sitting on the porch and discussing the antics of neighborhood hooligans, trading what will they think of nexts while they ogle passerby for the next potential source of gossip. The Porch Patrol may think th...
There's a difference between looking like a moron and just being stupid. Uwe Boll has crossed that line with his usual dignity and aplomb many a time, and each time I hope without reason it may be his last. In a recent interv...
I think it's safe to say that I like to play videogames; I wouldn't be here writing this if I didn't. And I'm all for competition, be it professional first-person shooter play or more casual play in someone's living room. But...
What's harder? (A) Producing a popular cartoon show for nearly 30 years about a trio of fat-faced high-pitched maladjusted chipmunks and their three whiny rodent girlfriends or (B) Producing a single good video game about the...
2007 was a banner years for gaming, but that doesn't mean that tripe isn't being turned out at an equal pace. Some crappy games are hilarious though, and I think my world would be a different place without them. PC World has ...
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday yesterday and the scary red chimney ninja gave you everything you wanted. Wait, what? You asked for a special end of the year Great Retro Quiz and didn’t find one...
The PlayStation 2 version of Rock Band has shipped and will be up for purchase from your store of choice starting tomorrow. Great news for those of you without a PlayStation 3 or an Xbox 360, right? Sort of.We've already been...
As most of you already know, the Xbox 360's Fall Dashboard Update hits tomorrow. Included in this update is a new program called Arcade Hits, which allows you to purchase previously released Live Arcade titles at a reduced pr...
I just feel sad about PS3 commercials. I don't want to ridicule them, discuss them with other journalists, contemplate why they aren't great anymore or pen angry letters. I just want them to be good again. I just want to know...
With the latest update to the backwards compatibility list finally here, there are now over 300 orginal Xbox games that'll play nice with your Xbox 360. But unlike the last update, there is a considerably smaller portion of g...
A brand new PlayStation 3 is shiny and impressive when unboxed, and you'd probably never imagine that the slick, gleaming black game console was created in what looks to be an over-packed car garage.We can't be sure if these ...
The Brainy Gamer (via Electro Lemon) has a very interesting article up discussing the heady ideals of Blacksite: Area 51, Midway's latest attempt to bring the Area 51 label a decent game. By all accounts, the title is but a s...
Square recently held their yearly fiscal meeting, which yielded some very distressing news for RPG fans awaiting the newest Final Fantasy with baited breath: The game may not be released until 2009. The trouble seems to revol...
The scenario: You, controller in hands, sitting on the sofa, staring at your television with a mixed expression of frustration and anger. You've hit a point in a game where you can't get any further, you don't want the strate...
According to Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai, Sony will be maintaining the availability of the 20GB and 60GB models of the PlayStation 3 in Japan.  1UP has translated an interview with the SCE President from th...
File this one under "A pleasant surprise, but not quite what I had in mind." Harmonix has released their portable rhythm action game, Phase: The Music is Your Game onto iTunes. The $4.99 iPod game lets you use your ...
I used to hate the early Xbox years when a title like Silent Hill 2 for PS2 would hit, and then shortly afterwards a version for Xbox with more content would appear. Seems the process is being console reversed now: Eternal So...
While the meager storage space on the Wii is only mildly annoying for even the most hardcore Nintendo fanboy, the company continues to surprise us by renouncing hard drive peripherals for their console. The debate reminds me ...
While I'm sure the folks over at the 1UP offices have been enjoying Rock Band, not all is well. You see, the Xbox 360 hardware only has three USB ports, and Rock Band utilizes four USB instruments at once. Harmonix and Electr...
Forget to make a reservation and find yourself bolting to a 24 hour Wal-Mart at 3 am? Be warned: Reports have been flooding in that Wal-Mart is selling the Guitar Hero 3 bundle with some slight alterations. What kind of alter...
Ambition of the Illuminus, the upcoming expansion for Phantasy Star Universe, will be available for download via Xbox Live November 20th for $20. However, if you don't have an Xbox and want to play it for PS2 or PC, the retai...
E For All has received a great deal of skeptical feedback since its initial announcement, and as the show date drew closer it became more obvious that the event was not being supported by fans and industry alike. The absence ...
I'll be the first to say that this was supposed to be a way cooler post.  The original plan was to do a video where we would hand-cut the ballots and put them all in the planters peanut can, shake them up, call out some ...
I don't know what I was expecting from Too Human, to be honest, but I know I was expecting something a little more than this. For a game that's taken so long to develop and is surrounded by such lofty ideals (not to mention c...
Ubisoft, in an attempt to pacify the market of young girl gamers out there, have created a new line of games called Imagine to cater specifically to said girls. What type of games do young girls want? According to research, i...
Do you know what I hate, gentle readers? When someone comes along, strips a rich game of its storyline, and makes it into something cheap and easy. Hence my dissatisfaction here about a Silent Hill product. Yeah, the idea of ...
Quick recap just in case you don't already know (but I trust most of you Dtoid regulars know quite well), Seeds is a game company made up of several major members of the now-defunct Clover Studios. It seems Seeds has decided ...
If you're going to take up an entire section at one of the world's largest industry events and call it a "Video Game Museum," you'd better be damned sure it delivers. Never mind for a minute the fact it spits in the...
Okay, remember a few weeks ago when I covered an upcoming Wii game that sounded absolutely awesome, Zombie Massacre? Well, President of 1988 Games and producer of Zombie Massacre Benjamin Krotin has just emailed us with thank...
With Project H.A.M.M.E.R already cancelled and games like Disaster: Day of Crisis and Sadness going very quiet, the future for original franchises on the Wii looks pretty damn bleak. It's a tragedy then, that a true original ...
