Panasonic works on Wii-proof plasma TVs

It seems that electronics company Panasonic has taken notice of the high number of idiots that can't keep ahold of their Wii Remotes. They could just continue making and selling regular televisions, citing their locked down warranty policie...

Nintendo is demented: Patented diagrams show some awful Wii gimmick ideas

CVG has uncovered some absolutely stunning ideas from Nintendo -- stunning due to just how unbelievably stupid they are. If you thought Nintendo couldn't get lower than The Virtual Boy or R.O.B, just look at what the company passed by The E...

If you want to be fit, Wii won't cut it

Not yet, at least. We hear so much about how the Nintendo Wii's wand wiggling could benefit a player's physical fitness, but a new study says that it may not benefit us as much as we originally thought.Dalhousie University student Justin W...

Weekend Destructainment: All Your Base Are Belong to Us!

First off, yes, this video is old. I've never seen it before and it has never graced Destructoid though, so it's perfectly OK for me to post this! Anyway, mainstream media had made a startling discover on our Internets. They discovered the...

The Wii is dangerous: More dangerous than stupid doctors?

We've all heard about how dangerous videogames are from a variety of crackpots who vilify their violent content and penchant for teaching kids how to murder people, but it's not often that the virgin-white Wii is branded dangerous. Fortunat...

Wii games are not fit for fitness...yet

I'm not out to rain on anyone's parade, but all of that arm flailing in front of your Nintendo Wii may not be helping your physical fitness as much as you'd like to think it is. A study called "Energy expenditure in adolescents playing...

Weekend Destructainment: Mainstream media continues to rape videogames

Wii shows soldier his cheating wife's bowling shenanigans

Check yourself into Wiihab: At least it's one of the better Wii puns

Nintendo is boring: The Wii has failed to invigorate many, despite N's claims

Only yesterday I brought you Nintendo's most pompous claim yet -- that gamers were apparently bored until Nintendo rubbed the cobwebs from their eyes and introduced our messiah in the Wii. However, according to research, it is Nintendo that...

The horrible Nick Chester informed us yesterday that Nintendo is giving away free protection covers for Wii owners (thanks to all of the Wiitards, no doubt). Well it apparently is going to cost Nintendo over $17 million to do...   read

Greybushtainment: Dave's not here man

New Southwest ad makes fun of Wiitards

I hate it when our medium leaks into T.V. and movies since it's usually butchered (a good example of what I'm talking about will be on Weekend Destructainment this week). So I always have to cringe when I see our pasttime about to make a ca...

UR MR GAY! Super Mario Galaxy artwork holds a mirror to your homosexuality

There's something about we gamers that seems to give us an innate ability to home in on any and all homoerotic material and make as big a deal of it as possible. This would help explain why everybody's jumping on the 'news' that if you try ...

PS2 gets its own wiggle wand

It seems like gaming companies are slowly taking away our right to sit still and motionless while playing our games. The Wii already has us doing every type of silly motion humanly possible, and even the PS3 sometimes has us flicking our co...

Shameless Wiimote rip-off for the Walmart win

Took them long enough, didn't it? After months of waiting, we finally have some cheap, terrible Wiimote knock-off on the shelves of Walmart, in the form of four LCD sports 'games' in an inconvenient Wiimote-shaped case. For seven bucks, you...

Make yourself look sillier playing Wii Sports; introducing Wii Boxing Gloves
