David is leaving Destructoid, let him give you some swag before he does

Yes, it's true. After what has been in all honesty the single best year of my life by a very long way, I'm having to leave the Destructoid staff, as I've been offered a new job in journalism which is pulling me away from the ...

Destructoid interview: Redspot Games on refusing to leave the Dreamcast for dead

Way back in the mists of time (Well, only a couple of months ago, but I've never been one to stickle when there's an dramatic effect to be had) you might have read my post-Leipzig Games Convention story on Redspot Games, an i...

Destructoid review: Clive Barker's Jericho

I've been awaiting the chance to play through the final build of Clive Barker's Jericho with some degree of trepidation. You see on a personal level I've had rather a lot invested in the game since its announcement. Ever sinc...

Video Games Live, London: simply staggering

Video Games Live is one of those things that sounds like a cool idea until you get there. Upon experiencing it however, you realize that far from being merely cool, the show is actually one of the most enjoyable, stirring, mo...

Promising talent unveiled for Sin City game

You might remember that a while ago I got rather excited about the prospect of a Sin City game based upon Frank Miller's original graphic novels. It was one of those deliciously frustrating announcements guaranteed to spin a ...

First (clear) gameplay shot from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix

Rapidly following the cell phone footage, NeoGAF strikes once again, this time giving us a clearer look at Capcom's upcoming Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (What is it with all the excessively long titles today?) with...

New book says "Games are good for you"

Games don't make us kill, maim or rape, or mentally retard us into small lumps of drooling pus. We all know that. But a new book by software developer Mark Prensky is rallying to our cause one further step by espousing the ma...

Bionic Commando remake trailer hits the Web to the sound of gruffness

It was only announced yesterday, and already opinions are highly divided on Capcom's Bionic Commando remake. So far voices tend to fall on either side of a binary split, either gushing with the misty-eyed enthusiasm of a nost...

Destructoid interview: A pleasant lunch-time chat with the makers of Postal

I like the guys from Running With Scissors. Far from being the baby-eating, kitten-punching corrupters of children that certain quarters would paint them as, I've always found them to be thoroughly funny and intelligent peopl...

Games Media Awards: the images (quantifiably NSFW)

Having vague and hazy recollections of this week's Games Media Awards, I found myself quite looking forward to going over the photos and video from the night so that I could piece together everything that went on. Alas my fri...

Hitman movie censored already?

Mistwalker confirms Blue Dragon DS and a shiny new title
