Josef from Machinarium is in Super Meat Boy PC

Have you played Machinarium? If not, you should do that. The game is amazing. I can't wait to buy it (again) when it comes out on WiiWare. In the meantime, I've got this appearance from Josef in Super Meat Boy PC to tide me o...

Destructoid's 25 days of giving keeps on giving photo
Destructoid's 25 days of giving keeps on giving
by Niero Gonzalez

What is Destructoid? It's this thing! We publish it. We love our readers. We have unleashed a string of contests so awesome that babies and whales are reportedly melting. But first, a matter of business.

I'd like to remind everyone, before we're fatter and more cynical, that we've not forgotten that our very existence violates at least eight natural orders of the universe, and the fact that we grew our readership by nearly 60% this year is surely an irony of the gods. Why stop here? Let's go hump the moon, man!

First, I'm proud to announce formally that *drumroll* Destructoid is moving to the San Francisco area in February 2010 into what I can now only describe as a bunker of web development, coffee, and infinite bacon for all passersby. We will be celebrating four years of independent games blogging in the beautiful state of California to further d*ck around in the American game industry's backyard. (All in favor of this, say hoozah!)

Second: Citizens of San Francisco, you will soon see me in my underwear. I apologize in advance and will explain later.

Third: Destructoid is giving away about $10,000 worth of stuff in the next 25 days. Consoles. Computers. Games. Swag. Toys. Crap you couldn't buy even if your dad was a terrible shogun. One contest every day. Some will be small and end in seconds, some will last a few weeks. Some will send you on a scavenger hunt for Destructoid's headless cat of generosity, pictured above.

To get to the contests, click on the green contest button on the top of the site or follow this link!

Romero: Zenimax id buyout is 'disgusting'

Well, it didn't take him long. Outspoken game designer and former id man John Romero has stuck his oar into the Zenimax/id buyout situation, sharing only one adjective on the idea of Bethesda's parent company owning the famou...

Rumortoid: Apple interested in Electronic Arts

I've often said it'll be a case of "if" and not "when" on the subject of Apple getting into the game biz, and if recent "chatter" is to be believed, the home of the iPod may be looking towards ac...

Capcom holds back on d-pad to guard against takeover/acquisition

Every Street Fighter knows that a strong defense is every bit as important as a strong offense ("scoops! Häagen-Dazs!") is. It doesn't matter what kind of moves you have up your sleeve if you're not ready to de...

CNET blasts EA and Take-Two for using the press

There's a joke in this and I am going to mercilessly ram it into the ground for no reason other than to be an ass. So brace yourselves ...CNET, a company that has absolutely no experience in being used by videogames companies...

Square Enix plans for world domination, acquisitions

While I'm a JRPG fan first, and while I love most of what comes out of Square Enix, I've always pictured them as a sort of Shinra Electric Power Company (from Final Fantasy VII) in the making. They started out small, with the...
