How would you pwn Saddam Hussein?

As I'm sure you're all aware by now, former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was sentenced today to the gallows for his crimes against all that is holy to us decent folk. So, in honor of this happy occasion, we at Destructoid wo...

All hail Gears of War
by RobertSumma
Snagged from the most recent 1UP show, the boys at Ziff Davis give a fairly lengthy (almost 10 minutes!) and in-depth look at what to expect once Gears finally drops this week. From every single impression I've been able to gather into my skull -- including my own hands-on time with the game -- it looks as if Gears of War will actually live up to this monumental hype. There's not one other game -- save Guitar Hero 2 -- that I've been looking forward to more this year.view full story + comments

Everyone has their PS3 but me!

Seriously Sony, what gives? I mean, 1UP just got their PlayStation 3 and even Crecente and his boy got theirs. I assume mine is still in the mail, since I'm on the East Coast and all. At least, I'm hoping that's the case. Y...

The Internets are in Wii love overload

Since Nintendo invited a bunch of journos out for a sleepover with Zelda, it seems the Internet has exploded with Wii goo all over the place. You can't turn your head without getting a full load blasted straight in your fac...

WoW guild hit with banstick

I love Blizzard. Why? Because they have no patience for those who look to cheat and exploit their way through games that are supposed to be fun, that are supposed to be an experience. That's why a big grin spread across my ...

Wanna play the Wii? ... wait in line [Update]

So I just got back from a long day of venturing out to Queens to see some of the Machinima Festival and on my way back home decided to check out the Wii -- which is now playable -- at the Nintendo World Store. Sadly, for mo...

1UP pulls NWN 2 review; mysterious black hole of gaming surrounds [Update]

[Update: We have the original review thanks to reader Lodin. Check after the jump for what has stirred this mini-controversy.] So, had 1UP never even mentioned that they pulled a Neverwinter Nights 2 review from 1UP and Ga...

GameStop gets their Wiimotes
by RobertSumma
gamestop_store.jpg According to an employee posting at Evil Avatar, the Wiimotes have arrived to GameStop and it looks as if everything will be playable, if not today, then very soon. Check out what happened: As if on cue, the Nintendo rep walks in and begins to set up the Wii and he unveils the Wiimotes. 1.) Reciever. Attached to the bottom of the widesceren Samsung TV was the reciever for the signal from the Wiimotes. I didn't realize it wasn't part of the TV until he pointed it out. It's sleek black and about 10" x 1" x .5" 2.) Startup Disk. Before the console could be used he had to insert a startup disk. He said that all Wiis (including full retail versions) will need to do this before the console can be used. I asked why but he said he didn't know. It is a one-time process that took less than 2 minutes. view full story + comments

Greatest game eva in action! [Update]

Forget that stupid Zelda and Gears of War crap, it's all about the $3.99 Sneak King for me. Take a look at this HOT HOT HOT trailer for the upcoming Happy Meal game. Yeah, I know Happy Meals are a McDonald's thing, but I don't care. I'm so in love with the King, that I've lost my fast-food mind! [Update: OMGZ, here's PocketBike Racer!]

A view into EA's kick in your pouch

[Editor's note: After examining the "list" further, it is apparent the maker of the list has no clue what he or she is talking about. Clearly, I have none either. Still, it's worth it just for the Ducktales picture. --RS] ...

Despite crap games, EA raking in millions

Game bugs and glitches be damned! EA is still gonna turn a profit off the ignorant gamer who sees an EA logo and has a "must buy" light blaze inside their empty skull. According to Gamasutra, EA's profits have hit record hi...

EA continues to suck incredibly hard

EA is riding this microtransaction gravy train as long as they can and in a continued effort to milk the lazy gamer -- and also give the rich advantages over the poor -- EA is now offering up payable content for Need For Sp...

PS3 Toys R Us kiosk in action
by RobertSumma
If you can't be there first hand, well, enjoy this crappy video instead! Here's what those of you not lucky enough to live in the Big Apple are missing right now. I'm not entirely sure if other Toys R Us' around the nation have their own kiosks set up right now, but I know WE do -- and really, that's all that matters.view full story + comments








PS3 playable at Toys R Us Times Square
by RobertSumma
P1000034.jpg I had heard that the Toys R Us in Times Square, NYC, had playable PlayStation 3 kiosks, luckily for me and you, that rumor is true. There is a station set up now with four units, but only one is playable. While I was there, the guy hogging all the playtime was trying out Motorstorm. I'm not sure if there are other games on the demo disc, but I'm going to assume there are. Check out more pictures after the jump. P1000030.jpg view full story + comments
