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?

The inner workings of the minds of Hollywood's executives often make very little sense. That's as true a statement as saying that the sky is blue or that Snowboard Kids is better than Mario Kart 64. The modern Hollywood exec ...

Mistwalker confirms Blue Dragon DS and a shiny new title

I couldn't be more thankful for Mistwalker's existence right now. As a long-time JRPG fan, these last few years with my once beloved Square-Enix have been like watching a much-loved family dog slowly die while a relationship ...

Destructoid interview: Pure Pwnage

If you haven't seen Pure Pwnage yet, - and frankly you have very little excuse at this stage - stop reading this right now, head over to the site, and come back and resume once you've watched all fourteen episodes. Go on. You...

Bungie: Internet Matlocks correct, Halo 3 not running in HD, but so what?

It's a universal law of human snarkiness that the bigger the game launch, the more attention will be paid to any hitches, large or small. It's also a universal law of videogames that the more you hype, the more trouble you te...

Ghost Squad trailer shows off some slick shooting

While probably not a release likely to be setting Wii owners' pants on fire with anticipation in this year of incoming Mario and No More Heroes, - and with Metroid still to come if you live in Europe - Sega's port of arcade l...

Dead Island site goes live

Techland's up and coming zombie dismantlement simulator caused quite a stir when it was unveiled at the Leipzig Games Convention, due to its smile-inducing two-hit combo of gorgeously idyllic tropical vistas and savagely brut...

Jack Thompson sends gay porn to judge, doesn't even buy dinner first

My friends, it's almost time to start popping champagne corks, for the glorious day must surely be soon upon us when Jack Thompson's legal career is curb-stomped savagely into a fine red mist. For quite some time now things h...

Valve uncertain about the future of episodic gaming

Valve might be dropping the whole concept of episodic gaming once Half-Life 2: Episode 3 finally sees the light of day. While that release may seem like a distant prospect with Episode 2 still awaiting its delayed release, Ga...

Timesplitters 4 looking probable for the Wii

Some new tips drop into my in-box like a shiny big dollop of liquid gold. From the day the Wii was announced, FPS on the machine has been at the forefront of my mind, and I've had a vaguely realized image of a perfect example...

Wii availability creates tourism boost in rural Japan, seashell art sales stable

Nearly ten months in and still the Wii is only marginally easier to get hold of than rocking-horse manure. Having pre-ordered mine before launch, I had to be honest, pretty much stopped tracking their proliferation in stores,...

Surprise of the week: Jericho banned in Germany

In a move which has stunned the entire population of those who have actually been living under a rock for the last ten years, - incidentally a proud people who are sick to death of being reduced to a semi-humorous cliche in t...

Coming to America: Square Enix looking for US partnerships

First Capcom, now Square Enix. This generation is seeing some big westard steps taken by Japanese publishers eager to lap up some of the creamy monetary goodness waiting on the other side of the globe. Its not a surprising si...

New Seaman 2 video: Man-faced fish-birds and cell phone-using cavemen aplenty

 I was expecting most things relating to the sequel to Sega's Dreamcast pet simulator to be pretty weird, but after watching this Japanese gameplay overview, I'm less dazed and confused and more disturbed and utterly con...

TGS 2007: New No More Heroes video brings your dreams of a laser crotch to life!

 No More Heroes gets more and more screwed up the more we see of it, and I for one thoroughly approve. So far we've had otaku buying light sabers from Ebay, arm-mounted rocket launchers, explosive gore and mandatory Wiim...
