I would burn down a convent for this scrap metal Big Daddy sculpture

I love BioShock. You love BioShock. Whether it's on the PS3 or the Xbox 360, we all love BioShock. The artists over at Metal Park seem to be aware of this, and they're making it really hard to not spend the hundreds of dollar...

Paging Tazar and Snaileb to Cancun - Congrats to our Dtoid fanboy winners!
by Niero Gonzalez

 
The backstory: Destructoid turned two (or twenty), so we're putting babies in people in Cancun next week to celebrate and this year we wanted to fly Destructoid's biggest fanboy and a friend to join us. So who should that person be this year? The people have spoken!  Following a near-riot ballot anticipation in the cblogs and a late night internal voting session the collective has chosen none other than TAZAR THE YOOT, an honorable site regular who has a license plate cooler than the guy who actually runs the site! Tazar has selected friend a fellow Dtoid community member Snaileb to join the festivities as his bitch, so that wraps up this year's anniversary contest. We'd like to thank everyone that participated and a special thanks to our runner up Cutie Honey who made an amazing music video. Expect tacky souvenirs from us!
 
Two other anniversary contests remain: A chance to win Grand Theft Auto 4 and Playstation 3 and a killer $5000 custom Turning Point gaming PC.  These contests are ending soon, so get your entry in pronto. Capisch?

Last but not least, I have special announcement to make.  Later this month this little start-up video game company will be moving out of my living room and into a proper office near downtown Miami. I know - serious business! We can assure you that it will be a dive at first, but after the paint dries and our 90x115 foot Deep Throat poster arrives it should then feel like home. Keep an eye on my Cblog as I hope to document the entire process of going from a humble garage based web publisher to a slave-driving business-jerkface who only hires slutty interns from the nearby hippie art college*! We have a ton of new site features planned so expect your cheese to be moved and fondled inappropriately.
 
Seriously though, these are very exciting times and we're happy to give back as much as we can for putting us on the map. Thanks everyone for the support and sharing in the unlikely Destructoid story. 
 
*Subject to Colette approval. Sluts are not necessarily all female or homosapien. Kids, use protection.

Destructoid Contest: Win a one-of-a-kind $4,999 Turning Point pc! photo
Destructoid Contest: Win a one-of-a-kind $4,999 Turning Point pc!
by Niero Gonzalez

Destructoid 2 year anniversary madness continues! As we countdown 730 days of blogging in the good name of the robot we're running a couple of contests you won't want to miss: You have the chance to win a Playstation 3 with Grand Theft Auto 4, a trip to Cancun, and now a one-of-a-kind Turning Point: Fall of Liberty edition Falcon Northwest system!  Gorgeous custom chassis artwork aside, there's some serious power under the hood:

  • 3 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU
  • Two Nvidia GeForce 8800GT cards in SLI
  • Two 500 Gig hard drives in RAID 0
  • Viewsonic 22" Widescreen monitor
  • Mad bragging rights
  • A new place on your desk that you will forbid your roommate to place his filthy Chinese takeout leftovers. No seriously, if you find another sticky chicken wing near your desk you can officially stab him repeatedly in the eye!

How to win it

Show us your rig. That's all there is to it. The winner will be selected at random - simply fire up your blog with an entry called "Not my Turning Point gaming rig" and post a photo and a note about the computer you call home. We'll be featuring some of the notable rigs on our weekend community updates too, so if you'd like to be featured put some work into that post. The contest ends on April 7th, so you've got a month to make it happen. 

Full list of tech specs and larger photos follow soon!

DualShock 3 comes to US April 15th

If the rising cost of living makes you grumpy, be prepared to stroke your beard and complain (or if you don't have one, get working on growing it out.) The Playstation DualShock 3 controller finally has a US release date of A...

Attention children in Texas: Please note a change to Destructoid's usage policy photo
Attention children in Texas: Please note a change to Destructoid's usage policy
by Niero Gonzalez

In light of recent litigation that has been brought to my attention, I felt that it is my role as the webmaster of this video game site to announce the following change in user policy for the safety of those impressionable minds that may find this filthy breeding ground of deviants.

Chilluns, heed my warning. 

The internet is a dangerous place full of pedophiles ready to rape you at any moment.  You've heard the stories -- they're true. Nevermind using your common sense or talking to your parents about responsible use of the internet. The government has deemed that your parents are actually useless bags of flesh and we recognize that it is our burden to be your parents, a task we didn't know we accepted but we'll run with it anyway. The fact of the matter, and what you need to understand today, is that we've taken a survey and at least 99% of our registered members cannot wait to fist you repeatedly in the privacy of our forums. We're not here to talk about the Playstation 3 or Xbox Live. Hell no. That's all Dtoid Army code on how we're going to pelt your pubic area like an exotic chia pet the moment you sign on.

It may be of great disappointment to some of you, but I hereby openly admit that video game sites such as Destructoid, however enticing to your feeble minds, are actually tools created by Satan to get deep inside your anus. Especially if you are a child and live in Texas. We cannot wait to hit that.

Chances are, you're already doomed. Someone should be knocking on your door in a few minutes ready to sodomize you in ways you've never thought imaginable. Like, with celery and plastic dinosaurs from the Mesozoic era.

Man sells insane game collection on Ebay

Don't get me wrong, having a huge game collection is a badge of honor. But there's having every console ever made, and then there's having four of every console ever made. Somewhere in there, the line between fervent collecti...
