A small booth tucked against the wall on the Tokyo Game Show floor has regular demonstrations for their only product here, named Goron. This "tablet cushion" is essentially a head pillow with an arm mount for tablets or smart... more
I'm slowly recovering from a wild and crazy PAX weekend. I've been to PAX East twice in the past, but this was my first time attending Prime. It was beyond a doubt the most emotionally polarizing con I have ever attended, fil... more
You've crossed the fans for the last time, Capcom! How DARE you infiltrate the Uwajimaya Asian grocery store in Seattle and reshape the deli meats to resemble Mega Man and Cut Man instead of using all of that wasted time to a... more
Rambo: The Video Game is happening apropos of nothing.
The game mashes up First Blood, First Blood Part Two, and Rambo III. The first two get three inch figurines that look a little like Keanu Reeves with pre-order at select ... more
Grid 2: Mono Edition has been dubbed the "Most Expensive Video Game Commercially Available -- Special Edition" by the Guinness World Records group. This PS3 game package goes far beyond your typical DLC and cloth maps, though... more
Prrrbbt! My mane is all in a frizz because My Riding Stables 3D – Jumping for the Team is available in the Nintendo 3DS eShop right now. I'm doing that thing where I wiggle/shimmy my head back and forth while blowing ai... more
Despite Spike Chunsoft showing some interest in bringing Conception 2 to western shores, it seems doubtful this Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita game will ever manage to escape from Japan. A bizarre dungeon crawler... more
Iwata claims that this is the Year of Luigi, but I'm starting to think it's the Year of Nicolas Cage. First came that Majora's Mask texture hack that slaps his mug on every surface imaginable, and now comes this new tumblr th... more
For a minute there, I was worried that Capcom was dragging its feet, unable to think about the proper way to revive the Mega Man franchise. I should have had more faith!
Taking a page from Sega's playbook, Capcom has announce... more
There are plenty of reasons to like Bungie as a studio, and here's yet another. In its new Mail Sack blog post, the team fields a question many of us have been wondering this week: What was up with the four guys who presented... more
The absolutely, positively very "first" female protagonist in Final Fantasy history, Lightning, is once again in the pilot seat for the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This is the third game under the FFXIII u... more
Wait, what? Not content with letting their mark on the hardware market fade into obscurity, Sega has teamed up with Japanese retailer Enterbrain to produce Sega flavored portable PCs.
This bizarre team-up has produced Mega Dr... more
Dorkly, which I have to say has been on a roll with all their original content, decided to see what your favorite videogame heroes would look like as Pokemon. Mario, Link, Ezio, Solid Snake, Samus, and a few others all got th... more
Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, the second sequel to the admittedly bland RPG about anthropomorphic videogame consoles fighting a literal console war, is still on track for a PS3 release in the US on March 12, 2013. Despite ... more
Just a short while ago, we received an email from MangaGamer, a distributor of English-translated Japanese adventure games. It contained a press release for an adult turn-based card battler entitled Boob Wars: Big Breasts vs ... more
When it comes to controllers, I try to steer clear of third-party options, as I've never once had a better experience with a knock-off versus the real thing. On the other hand, I gladly welcome any and all limited edition pad... more
Jhonen Vasquez of Invader Zim and Johnny the Homicidal Maniac fame is the master of the weird and disgusting. His wonderfully grotesque take on the "normal" is no more apparent than with Creepachu! This warped take on Pikachu... more
If you've ever played a Pokémon game, you'd realize that some of the critters possess rather unbelievable abilities beyond comprehension. I'm not talking about just the legendary Pokémon but also the run-of-the-... more
I can't hear the word "Mobius" without thinking about Sonic SatAM and Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Buried underneath those are memories from elementary school when we were introduced to the Mobius strip, a seemingly mag... more
While looking through the long list of Wii U launch titles, a few jumped out at me as completely stupid-sounding. Judging a book by a cover is one thing, but judging a game based on solely its name is a lot more difficult.
"That's Our Capcom! Coming soon to ABC Family!"
Capcom is notorious for its printing errors and spelling gaffes. If it's not using watermarked images for its slip covers, it's failing to run a simple spell check on in-game di... more
Who says there's no justice in the world?
Just yesterday, we learned that the highly demanded Zelda bible Hyrule Historia is being localized for the US, UK, Australia, and certain other parts of Europe. I originally used the ... more

Mega Man air fresheners. Let me repeat myself: Mega Man air fresheners.
Well, I think we've just about seen everything, right?
This fall, fragrance licensee (seriously) Epic-Scents will release Mega Man and Proto Man Scent Bl... more
No, that is not a Photoshop. That is King Nintendo 64. Hail to the king, baby!
During Otakon this past weekend, quite a number of attendees decided to cosplay, not as a particular anime or videogame character, but rather as a... more
During the hustle and bustle of PAX week, there were quite a few bits of Internet awesomeness that unfortunately slipped under everyone's noses. I always hate being the last guy to find that "cool new thing," because it feels... more
Dale North, Steven Hansen and I just got finished at the Game Developers Conference today here in San Francisco and on the way home we happened across a picture of Gabe Newell's face at the corner of 4th and Howard St. We got... more
I really dug the premise of the Serious Sam Indie Series. Presumably, that initiative was successful, because Devolver Digital wants to hear independent developers pitch games at GDC 2012.
Apparently, hopefuls will have as mu... more
I love this collection of Japanese pop culture icons as Street Fighter IV characters. Artist Kei Suwabe did a killer job in nailing Capcom's style for these portraits, and you can see them all in one collection over at The Er... more

This video isn't that craz... more
Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition. Wow. I mean, just... really? That's... I never would have...
There have been rumors of a new Pokémon game floating about, and most assumed that it was either the inevitable Pok&ea... more
True story: Back when I lived in Japan, I owned a children's folding chair that sat directly on the floor without any legs. It clicked into place so you could adjust your reclining angle and flattened out for easy storage. It... more
As some of you may remember, we've been posting coverage of a very bizarre looking source-powered first person PC game known as Zeno Clash. As a fan of all things f*cked up, I really am interested in how this odd title is doi... more
I've been saving up tons of really cute animal and gaming pictures for a while now to post on Destructoid and I think I have more than enough now to torture ... I mean post on here.I tried to get my own pets to pose for c... more
