3DS 'lifestyle' pics appeal to the douchebag in all of us

If there's one constant in the universe, it is this little rule -- all pictures tagged "lifestyle" will feature people who could only be described as spectacular douchebags. Nintendo has often given this rule credibility, and...

La Mulana devs talk difficulty and 'the key to fun'

La-Mulana is known for terminating folks. The game is a lot of fun, but it's so daunting at times that some fans are afraid to play the game through a second time. The team at Nigoro (La-Mulana's developers) seem aware of thi...

Kirby's Epic Yarn box art makes me spunk from my penis

Professional sourpuss and Destructoid editor-in-chief Nick Chester tells me I should stop being so excited for Kirby's Epic Yarn. I have decided instead to not learn my lesson about Aliens vs. Predator and ignore his warnings...

Hands-on: DJ Hero 2 photo
Hands-on: DJ Hero 2
by Ben Perlee

Back when the first DJ Hero released, music games were at a cultural high, selling hundreds of thousands of units; games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band proved that peripheral-based music games could not only work, but be very profitable. However, when DJ Hero actually made it to store shelves, people were turned off by the high price tag and limited gameplay. For all intents and purposes, the general attitude was that the game was a flop.

Except it wasn't. Just last month, it was reported that DJ Hero had 1.2 million units sold. It makes sense. The game has been available on sale for months now, making it a much more appealing game to people sick of the fake rock lifestyle that Guitar Hero and Rock Band offer. With 1.2 million units out in people's hands, it would be nice to see them using that turntable for more than just the one title and a couple of downloadable music packs.

And so struts in DJ Hero 2. Announced officially in June, the game is nearing its launch this October. Activision offered us a few hours' time with the game, so hit the jump for our hands-on.

How to make your own New Super Mario Bros. Wii levels

Aliens vs. Predator will definitely not suck

Okay, I don't know that for sure, but somebody has to balance Nick "Aliens aren't Taylor Swift, therefore they suck" Chester. Our illustrious editor-in-chief was less than kind to Rebellion's interspecies royal rumble when t...

More The Who coming to The Rock Band

Which hat to put on. I can toss on my Nick Chester's singing vagina hat because this is a Rock Band story or I can put on my Samit hat because it has to do with the Superbowl and FOOTBALL! Nick's hat is more comfortable, but ...

So baller: Professor Layton Revoltech coming in March

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 ...
