With RE5 already on sale in some release date-breaking stores in Japan, we bloggers only have a very breif period of time to report on the games features like they are "news". So here is what will likely be the la...
Call of Duty: World at War needed just one more week at the top of the chart to claim a record for most number of weeks held leading to a Christmas number one. Unfortunately for Activision, FIFA 09 has claimed the top spot, b...

Holy Jimminy Soulja-Boy Christmas. Now this project is totally bananas, and not just because it features Master Chief doing a multi-hit super combo on Mega Man X. What's really insane is that Card Sagas Wars, a presumably f...
Destructoid is proud to announce... well, maybe not proud, but, let's say ashamed to admit? We now have Cashwh0re shirts on sale on our marketplace. Stop reading this post and go buy now! At only $14.95 you can't go wrong. Tr...

Now here's a rather interesting title out of Korea that I'm 99.99% sure that we will never see here in the States. Valkyrie Sky is, as far as I can tell, the world's first cross over between the MMO and Shoot 'Em Up genre. &...
