Sony has now launched an initiative they're calling the "PlayStation Logo Licensing Program." This means that you'll start seeing the PlayStation logo slapped across all manner of what the company is referring to as "lifestyl...

Yesterday, as the new issue of Weekly Famitsu hit Japanese news stands, details about two upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker PSP bundles began to leak out. Sony is selling a Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Premium Package...


Another week, another bunch of Rock Band DLC. If had any ideals, I'd refuse to post about DLC since it's obviously just a ploy by the Man to squeeze you for your precious banana dollars; but, apparently, this game is popular...


Ok, let's be perfectly honest here: this Professor Layton Revoltech figure is on-fire hot. If I had a saltier lexicon, one surely unbefitting of a gentleman like Professor Layton, I'd say it was sh*thot. At the very least, I ...


Isn't it crazy how a minigame from an unreleased Sega CD title has been so crucial in helping to raise money for charity? Don't get me wrong -- most of the credit goes to LoadingReadyRun, the group who uses said minigame for ...


In this, the second of a three part series, we delve deep into what it takes to program the Bit.Trip games, the research behind the design of Commander Video (the series' main character) and how Bit.Trip Core's bosses will di...


Reasons why I am in lust with the special edition of Atlus' upcoming RPG Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abbadon:1. The game is set in Japan in the 1920s2. The game is going to be freaking incredible3. It comes with ...

If you pay attention, you'll notice that, for better or worse, the games industry is changing right in front of our eyes. While companies are getting bought up, shut down, and merged, publishers are desperately trying to find...


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...


 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 th...

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...


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 mi...


It has been said that necessity is the mother of all invention, and for all intended purposes that ranks as one of the truest phrases that you'll likely ever encounter. The remarkable thing about it all is that it has a tende...


Meeting in the Square-Enix Boardroom, 1 pmJapanese guy in suit: So, we need to launch some new product for the holidays. We don't have any major titles launching so we need a way to rake in money.Japanese guy with spiky hair:...


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...


Ah, Square-Enix, destroyer of wallets. Another limited PSP you know we will buy. They stop at nothing to rape us of our every dollar and leave us shamed and crying in a corner, I swear. The Star Ocean: Eternal Edition bundle ...


I'm not trying to be mean, but really, it does. Check out the Fairlight Xynergi keyboard, which can be your baby for a cool $28k. It features "Self Labeling Illuminated Computer Keyswitch Technology," which is basic...


Our beloved .Tiff was kind enough to point me in the direction of this amazing new oki-ni 8-inch Dunny, which releases Sept 6th in a limited run of 1000 pieces. She and I are obsessed with all things vinyl, as we may have men...


First, the Square Enix official online store opens and offers a variety of collectable items that aren't available for purchase at any other retailer. Then, there were limited edition collectable potions which I was saved fro...


It seems that Niero, being the sneaky robotic overlord that he is, has added two more shirts to the Destructoid Store, one being the Classic Destructoid RAMPAGE shirt (I am SO buying that) and the other being the Also Cocks s...


With all of the negativity surrounding the quality of Microsoft's Xbox 360 hardware, it's almost a welcome sight to see a headline proclaiming the durability of the PlayStation 3 (however partial the source may be)....


Ask anybody that's in this photo, and they'll tell you that very few things in life are consistant: death, taxes, that burning sensation when you pee, and XBLA releases every Wednesday. This week, the retro arcade classic Tra...


Can you remember a time when you could seek refuge in a few hours of videogaming, and not have to worry about being bombarded with in-game ads? Well thanks to a recent agreement between Microsoft and EA Sports, that special m...


Gaming isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions the term "Anime convention." Put those two words together and they'll likely conjure images of smelly otaku, swords fashioned fro...

John Madden's eponymous football franchise can always be depended on to deliver ridiculous numbers of EA-brand microtransactions designed to drain blood from even the stoniest of stones. This year, EA seems to be urging s...


I'd like to save face and say I'm faking the expression up above, but that's pretty much exactly how I was feeling as I walked with Aaron Linde to our E3 appointment with Square Enix. They were showing multiple u...
