Team Fortress 2 Pyro and Demoman figures released

I'm not the type of guy that has action figures lying about the house; my He-Man and Thundercats figures are up in the attic safely gathering dust for their revival in a younger generations' hands. But I'm real tempted to get...

This 25th Anniversary Mega Man lanyard is a thing

What better way to celebrate your love of Mega Man than wearing this odd, neon green lanyard around your neck? Or something like that. You can pre-order the lanyard here for the fairly pricey $9.95, and you'll also ...

Offbeat Hall of Fame: Nintendo Super Power Supplies photo
Offbeat Hall of Fame: Nintendo Super Power Supplies
by Tony Ponce

[Offbeat Hall of Fame is a showcase of the cool, often bizarre products and media from years past that celebrate videogames and gamer culture.]

Have you picked up your copy of the final Nintendo Power yet? Looking through it again, I still have trouble accepting that a piece of my childhood is gone for good. However, thanks to the magic of the Internet, a trip down memory lane is but a click away.

There are many things I loved about Nintendo Power -- the maps, the comics, the Classified Information cheats section that always devoted a page or two to Super Mario World -- but something about physical goodies always filled me with a special glee. And there was no better repository of Nintendo merchandise in the 90s than the Super Power Supplies catalog!

Before digital retailers became a thing, mail order catalogs were the only way to obtain nifty items unavailable in stores. For the Nintendo generation, Super Power Supplies was our shopping mecca. Because how cool was the kid wearing a sick-ass Fulgore mask on Halloween?

New PAX mission: Obtain a creepy Dishonored mask

I'm not sure what it is with Dishonored and masks, but I like the trend and potential for awesome cosplay. These paper masks (via Super Punch) for the game are simultaneously funny and downright terrifying. While Bethesda wil...

Rhythm Heaven Fever special edition unboxing

Did you know that Rhythm Heaven Fever was getting a special edition? Neither did I. Then I got this box in the mail this morning. I'm pretty sure that this special edition won't be sold in stores, but if Nintendo decides to change its mind on that, they're sure to make a killing when the game hits stores on February 13th. Check out the video and you'll understand what I mean.

25 Days: Win a pile of rare shirts, posters and more
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

[Update: Contest over! Winner is OverEZ!]

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and salutations December 25! Today marks the last of the 25 Days of Giving. We've given thousands of dollars worth of stuff over the course of the month thanks to so many awesome gaming companies that wanted to brighten up the holidays.

Today, I'm giving away a pile of swag that I've been hording all year long from the many videogame events I attend for Destructoid. The majority of the swag is made up of shirts, ranging from small to XXL sizes. You can see every shirt in the gallery but here are some of the rarer ones from the pile:

  • Saints Row: The Third I <3 Rim jobs
  • Borderlands 2 logo tee
  • Bionic Commando featuring Hitler's exploding face
  • Dark souls tee
  • Dues Ex: Human Revolution Steampunk bunny
  • Tatsunoko vs Capcom tee
  • Halo: Anniversary tee
  • Madworld tee
  • Bethesda/Skyrim tee

Plus there's a bunch of random items thrown in too. The Lollipop Chainsaw foam chainsaw, a Duke Nukem belt buckle, Dead Space art book, Super Meat Boy comic, Bulletstorm nutcracker and so much more.

All this will be going to one lucky person and to enter, leave a comment below with your highlight of 2011. Doesn't have to be gaming related, just tell me something from 2011 that made your year special. You have until 11:59PM CST to enter and contest is open to anyone with a US based address we can ship the prize to. Note that this isn't a random giveaway either, so put some thought into your entries. Good luck!

I'm now prepared to survive the Fall of Cybertron

When this turned up and I opened the package, my wife said, "They sent you a lunchbox? You're an asshole." That's a fair enough assessment, I suppose.  Anyway, I got this mad tat in the mail today. It's a steel box conta...

Battlefield 3 officially beats Call of Duty ...

TGS: The prettiest 3DS AR card I own

I love Nintendo's AR cards and the games that use them, but there's nothing pretty about any of the ones that come with the 3DS. Now, everything is pretty when it comes to upcoming 3DS game Bravely Default. Even the AR card i...
