Pac-Man to show up in unexpected places this year, let's guess where

When Wii Fit launched, it kicked off the fitness craze in gaming for better or worse. Soon the Nintendo innovation (much like many of its other innovations) was being duplicated and improved upon everywhere. As motion co...
When Disney started re-releasing all their classic animated films in 3D because they like money and their classic films are really worth watching again in the theater, I wrote this review of the 3D release of Beauty and the B...
After it turned out that the new GoldenEye game didn't suck and Activision simultaneously published a new third-person Bond adventure in the form of Blood Stone (seriously flawed, but showed promise) I actually had ...
We have two more classic Bond films appearing in 007 Legends now with the announcement that License to Kill and Die Another Day coming out of gamescom. With this announcement it's pretty clear that the game will feature a mo...


As is wont with such things 007 Legends has picked up some exclusive pre-order bonuses from different retailers. Folks who buy the game from Amazon will receive the Nemesis Pack, which contains both Jaws and Baron Samedi as p...
Activision has announced that it's not just loading up on past Bond films for the upcoming 007 Legends, but past Bond actors as well. Not only have they confirmed that Daniel Craig will be performing as Bond throughout the ga...
If you're any kind of nerd at all you know Neil DeGrasse Tyson and you know Star Trek. You probably also know the earth shattering effects of the two of these things combining. At this year's SDCC DeGrasse attended the Stars...
Destructoid's friendly, neighborhood movie site Flixist is covering the Japan Cuts Film Festival in New York all this week (along with the New York Asian Film Festival all last week) and to kick off the events they've got an ...
I'm pretty sure they could play the Bond theme over a video of a peanut butter and banana sandwich and I'd get excited so playing it over a new trailer for 007 Legends is basically giving me conniptions. This trailer, w...
There’s a lot of hubbub around the two New Super Mario Bros. games coming out this year. Tony wrote an awesome piece on why he thinks their copy-and-paste design is a failure. Reggie has come out saying that the fan...
Today Activision announced the next film in 007 Legends that players will take on Bond's role in is On Her Majesty's Secret Service. They've sent along some screens and concept art to show off their take on the Bond film, whi...
Today (or yesterday depending on the location that you are reading this) was a good day for Bond fans. First we got the absolutely incredible trailer for the new Bond film, Skyfall, and now the first trailer for the upcoming...
A few weeks ago Activision announced that they were releasing a new Bond game, 007 Legends, this fall to coincide with the release of the new Bond film, Skyfall and Bond's 50th anniversary. I totally missed the announcem...
Ready to get some history laid one you? In 1981 on this day President Reagan was shot. While he was in the hospital then Secretary of State Alexander Haig uttered the words "I am in control here." The media took off with i...
Today's holidays were a bunch of suck so I've gone with a historical fact. On this day in 1886 Coca-Cola was invented. In case you didn't know, the secret recipe for Coca-Cola is totally top secret. In fact the awesome peo...
Here's a day I can get behind. Put something on a stick and it's instantly better. It just is. In the past you could only get things like hot dogs and corn on a stick, but these days daring chefs are putting all sorts of s...
All right, folks. New marching orders. Old jokes from movies only a partial part of the reading audience gets and even less think is funny are out, straight forward is in. Welcome (again) to The Network Round-Up. I actuall...
I have to admit I am not a big fan of spinach. Despite the repeated attempted brainwashings by the nefarious sailor Popeye and his animated antics I never came over to the cult of Spinach. It's just so mushy and gross when...
Sometimes I'm upset that I do these posts at night because I don't realize that the day is some holiday and thus I don't celebrate it. Today I totally missed my chance to goof-off at work all day without getting in trouble...
French bread is by far the best kind of bread. Slather some butter on that baby and you've got a simple tasty snack that's as long as a yard stick. Sure, there's garlic bread and banana nut bed, but those don't stand on th...
An entire day for the celebration of alien abductions? I mean, I guess so. I kind of wonder how people celebrate this holiday. Do they go out and stand in a field hoping to be taken up to the stars? Does the family gather ...
Hurray for chickens! Aren't they just delicious and everything tastes like them. Fried, grilled or diced up and compressed into a nugget form they just keep on giving. But let's not forget that there is so much more to th...
What? The birthday of this entire wonderful network's founder is totally a holiday. You wait and see. 100 years from now we'll all be getting this day off in celebration. Also, we will be living a lot longer so that we can...
I'm not making these holidays up. According to Hallmark, the people who make holidays up professionally, every holiday I put here is totally real. Of course since today is National Everything You Know is Wrong Day and you ...
You know it's mighty disrespectful to the flaky crust and fruity filling of pies everywhere that everyone seems to be spelling the name of the holiday that recognizes them wrong. Nah, I'm just kidding. I know all about Pi a...
Yea, you heard right. It's Earmuff Day... or it was. I'm a bit late today so the holiday is technically over in some places, but that shouldn't keep everyone from wearing some earmuffs despite the unseasonably warm weather...
Did you know today was National Alfred Hitchcock day? I had no clue, but it's inspired me to rename this feature so that each day we learn of an awesome new holiday such as this. I mean without this day would have stopped ...
Today I was going to try to tie all the posts from around the Modern Method network together with some kind of theme. So before writing this I went around and collected everything that caught my eye and then stared at it f...
I really want an hot dog, but I don't have any. I'm not sure when hot dogs became a thing that I didn't readily have on hand, but this is where I find myself. Sad state of affairs, I tell you. Anyone have any awesome hot d...
I'm working my way through every episode of every show of Star Trek and can I just tell you that Next Generation is even better than I remembered it as a kid. I'm still a Kirk guy, but I can feel myself moving closer to Pica...
You know what's awesome about doing these daily recaps for the MM network? I get to use a random image for the header like all the cool kids do. So here it goes. RANDOM HEADER IS GO! That was a bit less exciting than I thou...
Fun fact: There's an entire network of awesome sites just like Destructoid! Maybe you didn't know about them. Maybe you did and forgot about them. Possibly you've been avoiding them because you heard they all had some STDs...
Last year, James Bond returned to videogames in both GoldenEye 007 for the Wii and Blood Stone for the PS3 and 360. In a change from the standard outcome when a franchise hits multiple platforms, the Wii game was the one that...
I think it's pretty safe to say that everyone on Destructoid is excited for the release of L.A. Noire, but it isn't the only site on the network excited for the game. That's why the sites of the Modern Method network have joi...
I've spent the past week playing through the short, but inevitably sweet single player campaign of the sequel to one of the most talked about games last year. I then spent some time playing through its new multiplayer modes a...
Despite Jim's recent rantings the worlds of film and gaming are growing ever closer. We can argue over whether this is a boon or a detriment to gaming all we want, but when this fact means that Destructoid's sister manly brot...
I literally fell asleep playing Hyperdimension Neptunia. Full on, snoring for thirty minutes while my characters bobbed up and down in battle stances waiting for me to input their next attack. Now I will admit it was late, bu...
I'm a bit late at getting this up, but I had to bring everyone's attention to Zen Albatross's set at MAGFest. MAGFest had a huge Chiptunes component to it and not only did Zen (that's him above) perform in the show, but he al...
Every time Destructoid gets together it is awesome. I haven't had a bad time when I've gotten to hang out with this awesome and totally amazing community. However, MAFest 9 was seriously epic to an extent I couldn't even fath...
I'm waiting for an influx of amazing photos to really show you how awesome MAGFest was this year, but while I'm doing that let me tell you how Destructoid rolls. Our second place finish at the Iron Chef competition may have h...
