Rumor has it that it was so cold during this year's photo shoot that Hamza literal... more
Anaheim Wondercon may already be over, but we've got some awesome cosplay pictures from this past weekend's event! Check out some of the truly epic match-ups we happened upon, including Ryu vs. Sub-Zero, Batman vs. a Giant Mech, and Legend of the Hidden Temple's Orange Iguanas taking on their deadly rivals: the Blue Barracudas. more
MAGFest 11 has come and gone, but as James Hetfield once said, the memory remains. Why should we have to wait a whole year for the next event, though? Why can't MAGFest be every day, or at least every few weeks?

Mega Man fans are among some of the best fans in the world. When people are quick to point out that many of them only seek to complain that the latest game in the franchise isn't perfect, they're leaving out all of the millio... more

Maybe it's just because I keep happening to stumble upon reruns of Lois & Clark lately (no, that's exactly what it is), but I've got Dean Cain on the brain. What a kwinky-dink that he just so happens to pop up in a few Dr... more
It's such a drag when two major fan conventions fall on the same dates, especially if you regularly attend both of them. While 2011's Dragon*Con had a weekend all to itself, it unfortunately wound up going head-to-head with P... more
You ready for PAX? It's just a few short days away! I wish I could go, but The Fates have conspired against me. I'll be missing out on many things, such as the Fangamer VERSUS Attract Mode party going down on Saturday night a... more

A dimly lit hotel ballroom in Bellevue, Washington, may not be everyone's idea of time well spent, but for a good portion of the Seattle area gaming community this weekend, it was vintage gaming heaven. The second annual Seat... more
Not to be outdone but that other blue upstart, Sonic is getting his own comic variant exclusive to the San Diego Comic-Con. Well, scratch that -- Sonic doesn't actually feature. The sketch variant that Archie is making availa... more
Slowly but surely, I'm catching up on all the non-E3 news I missed while I was in Los Angeles last week. And when it comes to Mega Man-related stories, I try to be on top of them like white on rice (as though that wasn't obvi... more
After seeing Allistair's report of QuakeCon 2011, this year's convention sounds rather appealing. Pre-registration will open up tonight at 8:00pm Eastern; those in the audience who are afraid of time zones can simply watch th... more
PAX East 2012 is long behind us now but that doesn't mean we can't have one last look back at all the great costumes, booths, and how ripped Mr. Destructoid was at the show. All these photos come courtesy of some of the Dtoid... more
Good timing! Having just heard quite a lot from Jim about the current status of Aliens: Colonial Marines, PAX East attendees will have the opportunity to try the game out for themselves. On top of this and Hell Yeah! Wrath of... more

The parade of hi-res orgasm fuel continues with the second day of BlizzCon 11 photos. I can't pretend that I'm all too familiar with Blizzard's repertoire, but I can appreciate like-minded geeks coming together to make any ol... more
Blizzcon kicked off on Friday, and for everyone that can't be there, enjoy these very nice pictures. There is cool cosplay, miniature Warcraft action and a three monitor set-up. There is some other stuff too, but the whole th... more
On some levels, I don't really understand why booth babes exist. Sure, I get the whole 'sex sells' angle but I'm positive if I ever spoke to a booth babe, she probably wouldn't be able to tell me just how many Dark Brotherhoo... more
This past weekend, Australia's Gold Coast played host to the first, fully dedicated video game show the country has ever seen.
Before the EB Games Expo branched out from a vendor-only trade show to open its doors to the public, there was only the vague mention or damp corner of videogames at pop culture conventions or tabletop gaming shows. more
The premiere launch event for Gears of War 3 took place at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square on Monday night where hundreds of gamers gathered to ring in the release of Epic Games' latest installment in the chainsawing sa... more

The masquerade ball continues with a third serving of Dragon*Con cosplay. You'll have to excuse the duplicates in today's batch, though. I don't know how they got there, but I'm too much of a bum to go through and pull 'em ou... more
Labor Day Weekend continues with Dragon*Con cosplay, day 2. On Saturday, even more not-so-familiar faces made their debut, like the amazingly crafted sackboy 9 from the film of the same name. There were also a surprising numb... more
The boys of Beat Down Boogie, masterminds behind the Modern War Gear Solid web series, are attending Dragon*Con this weekend, and they've been gracious enough to supply us with oodles of photos of the various cosplayers. In t... more
Funny enough, most of the badass cosplayers weren't even videogame related. Case in point: This Buzz Lightyear costume. What's also becoming pretty great is that videogame companies are integrating professional level cosplayi... more
PAX just gets bigger and bigger each year. We love the hell out of this show and are amazed just how grander it gets each time. This year there are two whole floors dedicated to gaming, not to mention HaloFest taking up a flo... more
DrinkBox Studios is bringing its follow-up to About a Blob to PAX Prime. Instead of hitting PlayStation Network again, this time the developer is putting its new sidescrolling platformer Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack ... more

Wondercon 2011 has surprisingly been good with the cosplayers this year, and that's not even factoring Yaya Han and VampyBitMe's marvelous outfits. Of course, like any convention, there are some questionable outfits. The stan... more
Wondercon would be little more than a nerdy flea market if it wasn't for San Francisco's vivid cosplay crowd. This year there was noticeable spike in participants and a lot less janky cardboard costumes to boot. &n... more
Every year the AOU Amusement Expo is held in Makuhari Messe, the exact same place where Tokyo Game Show is held. It's the same building, but AOU only takes up a little corner of the building in comparison. The arcade ... more

This is probably my top presentation at Nintendo World 2011. According to my crap translation of this video, the game's developers have reported that Resident Evil: Revelations will feature more a lot more than what we see h... more
The first thought I had while walking the PAX show floor this year and taking pictures was that I was amazed how much it had grown since the first time I came in 2007 -- it's literally three times the size it was back then. T... more
The interactive arm of the South by Southwest exposition kicked into full gear today at the Austin convention center, steps away from the craptacular Radisson Hotel whose computer system has been down since 9 a.m. and has us ... more
As we had mentioned in our previous post, today's Nintendo Wii event on Miami Beach was to offer the hispanic press an opportunity to play with the system and report back to their viewers. Thus, the entire show was in Spa... more
