WROOOOOOONG!!!

Assuming you have at least some self-esteem, if you were asked about yourself online, wouldn't you present yourself in the best possible light? I bet you would. I would. That's probably why a recent study and poll says that o...
In today's geography lesson for game developers, the case of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Made by a multicultural team with various religious beliefs. Published by one of Europe's biggest games publishers. And they put Mosc...
Using the spoken word to communicate what makes a Kinect game more fun than a non-Kinect game is an uphill battle. For one, it's not terribly easy to find someone in the gaming press that likes Kinect all that much, and if yo...
We've heard stories of game-related robberies before, but this one is pretty impressive if you ask me (and by impressive, I mean f*cked up). Last week in Southern Ontario, Canada in a small city called Mississauga, a guy (or ...


Waiting with bated breath for Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse? Me too -- the Fatal Frame series is one of my very favorites. Considering the the game has been out in Japan since last July, US fans are starting to wonde...
From stabbing people over handheld videogame consoles to draping themselves in Christmas lights and trying to somehow make it sexual innuendo, the French are clearly a ... unique bunch. The Le Post recently reported a five ye...
AHAHAHAHAHAHA *pauses, clutches sides, catches breath* AHAHAHAHA ... Mercyful Fate. Led Zeppelin. Def Leppard. Mötley Crüe. It’s totally metal to purposely misspell your band’s name, right? So in a way,...
Viva Cruiser, the advergame about Erectile Dysfunction product Viagra, is no longer coming to a console near you. I know you're heartbroken, but it's for the best, really, because the convulsions of laughter resulting from tr...
You may remember seeing this Pip-Boy clock a few months back as part of the Fallout 3 Survival Edition package, which was a little rich for some gamers' tastes at $130. Still, a lot of people did buy it, and those people are ...
Wow.I mean ... wow.Please, if you will, imagine Sephiroth Andrew Martin in third grade, at which point it is highly unlikely that he will be a badass anywhere near worthy of his name. Imagine other kids asking "What's yo...
If you loved Braid, as the majority of Destructoid's staff did, you're going to want to sit down for this one. Rapper Soulja Boy posted a YouTube video which shows himself and a friend sharing their feedback on Braid, includi...
The Destructoid staff already went off on the topic of game collecting last month. I think most of us agreed that collecting was fine as long as you actually played the games, and we came to the conclusion that keeping them i...
Being a New Orleans native, I know the spooky folklore is only partially true: you can be the victim of a voodoo curse down in the good old south, but its more likely you'll die of alcohol poisoning before you piss anyone off...
The crazy Los Angeles earthquake just happened and, yeah, it was really scary. I was on the top floor of a moderately tall building and I seriously had a little bit of a panic attack.Unfortunately, I was just doing some borin...
While there's nothing hysterical about the reporting of this news, you can be sure people quick to jump to conclusions will blame World of Warcraft for being a dangerous environment after they read it -- as if a person couldn...
An Ubisoft rep has responded to criticism that its Wii lineup contains nothing for "normal" gamers by essentially saying that nobody cares about their best games, so screw it. Looking at the current UK games sales f...
Sure, we know kids get crazy when they get separated from their videogames, but Chamborg Hecht may be on a whole new level of madness (no doubt inherited). According to Ocala.com, Chamborg's mother Brenda was having problems ...
Sony has a history of disturbing ads, but this most recent one may even have the power to usurp the infamous PS3 baby commercial for shock value. An ad agency in Vienna for some reason thought that they would take the shadowe...
You know you can always rely on the internet for all variations of tastelessness, and in this case it doesn't disappoint. When is Britney going to Die basically gives you the option to guess what day Britney Spears will die. ...
These days, there's little love left for the Recording Industry Association of America. It's understandable that they'd want to clean up music piracy, but they always seem to approach things in the worst way. Now they sa...
Oh dear. When the game haters of the world hear about this one, there's going to be a field day to rival the Romans reveling over bloody crucifixions. Apparently on December 6th, 7 year old Zoe Garcia was being watched by her...
Christmas is apparently becoming the season for taking, rather than the other way around. In further theft news, in Los Angeles a group of robbers hijacked a truck carrying 1,000 Rock Band bundles and held the driver at gunpo...
Wii shortages have turned up everything from insanely overpriced auctions on Ebay to lines waiting for retailers' Wii shipments to arrive, but this is some seriously unacceptable news. The folks at the Lilac Plaza Retirement ...
This story is so ill I don't even know where to begin, so I guess I'll spit the facts out first and hopefully the fog in my brain will clear by then. The Vietnamese police have arrested a 13 year old Thai boy for strangling a...
Speculation has been running rampant about a high profile Xbox 360 game being thrown on the scrapheap. Speculation, however, isn't fact, and the theories that Rare's new Banjo-Kazooie was the cancelled game have been denied o...
Wow. Wow. Wow. To drive home how insulting this is, I'm going to reverse the situation: You meander into Barnes and Noble, and whilst perusing the aisles you stumble upon a bright blue book titled "The Boy's Guide To Gam...
If what Gamespot's review on Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer is true, a copy of the game could never be sold or loaned to another PS3 owner for online play without handing over account details.From the review: It's ...
To say that Nintendo has been smug since the Wii became such a huge success is something of an understatement. The company's press conferences have devolved into long sessions of self-fellatio and big numbers, but it's thanks...
A recent FileFront editorial treats a topic near and dear to all our hearts -- boobs in video games. However, even though the article's author identifies himself as "someone who enjoys eye candy as much as the next man,&...
A short while ago, I reported that gaming addiction could well be classified as a mental disorder if certain misguided folks had their way. Today however, Reuters relays that not only is the American Psychiatric Associatio...
This is my third attempt at writing this story. I hope it works out this time. You see my first two tries went unfinished, as the sheer level of apathy incited by this news caused my fingers to slow to the typing speed of a n...
A very small portion of the internet recently bubbled at the thought of Capcom's demented and abstract piece of videogame surrealism, Killer 7, being remade for the Nintendo Wii. A Wii version of Suda 51's schizophren...
Sometimes, I like to wrap my fingers around the shaft, press a thumb on the end, and pretend that my penis is some sort of warm joystick, and that I am playing video games with it. When I'm not indulging in crude genital ...
We all know that VH1 is the station for older, and supposedly wiser (read: un-hip), music aficionados. The kind of kind of people that would, upon hearing Freedom Rock, ask you to turn it up, man! So, it comes as no surprise...
Had it not come from Microsoft's PR agency, I'd think it was a photoshop job. The Simpsons Xbox is very real, folks. Oddly enough, today's announcement of the rare limited edition console has absolutely nothing to...
Because overall PlayStation 3 sales have hit just under 4 million consoles worldwide, Sony hasn't reached their self-imposed holy grail number of 6 million by the end of the latest financial year. Since many predicted tha...
One of the strangest (and strangely disturbing) things to ever come from a respected (?) news source has to be MSNBC’s Flash game NewsBreaker. The online game, which plays just like the classic game Breako...
Over at a site called GameStooge, one of the writers complains about having to unlock songs in Guitar Hero II: Why must one have to unlock songs? The consumer just paid $90 for your product, and deserves immediate access...
Ryan Stevens at GameTrailers really, really wants you to see this video comparison of next week's Super Paper Mario and the original Super Mario Bros. World 1-2. He's furious that -- you know, you haven't seen it...
Oh, c'mon. This is worthless.Seriously, we're neck-deep in the next-gen of gaming, and this is what they give us? I know a lot of us have been looking forward to the reportedly "breathtaking" and "awe-i...
