Destructoid has uncovered some mindblowing news that will shock and awe the gaming community -- we have discovered, through serious JOURNALISM, that Capcom does not owe you Mega Man or any other character in Ultimate Marvel v...
Sony has claimed that only the most hardcore PS3 gamers use PlayStation Home. That sounds like a failure, given the services casual, Second Life-esque dressing, but if Sony wants to spin the fact that a comparatively&nbs...
It looks the vague report from Nintendo customer service that Xenoblade (also known as Monado: Beginning of the World) is still slated for release in the United States isn't confirmation enough for some people. A group of fan...

Tecmo Koei's Japanese office building has been attacked by a particularly hateful fanboy who doesn't seem to appreciate the company's games.  The remarks spraypainted on the building are remarkably bitter and hateful. Su...
Disclaimer -- I wasn't originally going to post this video. I shot it the same week that Sagat and Pals review Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and within a few days after the game launched, most of the stuff about on how Marvel Vs. Cap...
As with any previous PC exclusive that goes multiplatform, Crysis 2 has come under fire from the PC elitist crowd who bemoan the "dumbing down" of the game and declare -- without evidence -- that the game was made for console...
Like a a lot of people, I have a very special place in my heart-container for The Legend of Zelda series. On top of that, I'm also a sucker for 80s pop-culture. That's probably why I made a teenage girl-ish giggle-squeak whe...
Remember that trailer a few monts back for that fan-made Half-Life movie called Beyond Black Mesa? The full short is now out and here it is for your viewing pleasure. Personally, I didn't think too much of it. I like the pro...

I never had a problem with Sonic 4's physics, but "fans" around the world are furious. Just do a Youtube search for "Sonic 4 physics" and you'll see a legion of rage-fueled videos from confirmed virgins. Sonic Team direc...
It seems everybody's lining up to have a crack at Gran Turismo 5. Electronic Arts has said that the game was sterile compared to Need For Speed, and now that giant of the racing genre, Codemasters, has said that the PS3 exclu...
28 Days Later and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West writer Alex Garland has confessed that he only bothered to play Heavenly Sword after meeting its developer, due to his being "f*cking sick" of the PS3. "There weren't any origin...
Surprise, surprise. The backlash over DmC's "new" Dante has reached its inevitable conclusion, with fans taking it upon themselves to play designer and give the protagonist's controversial appearance a brand new makeover. The...
For fans of the Battlestar Galactica, the frakkin universe of polygamist, polytheistic humans versus the monotheistic robotic Cylons is a clusterfrak of frakkin proportions. Now that the show ended and the spin-off, Caprica, ...
Whether they intend to or not, game makers lie. Sometimes they do it on purpose and sometimes things just happen that they have no control over. I still feel for Capcom's Shinji Mikami when he said that he would commit suicid...
Iron Man 2 won't be the only movie dealing with robots on May 7. Eddie Lebron's epic Mega Man: The Fan Film movie is finally done! The full length movie will be out in two weeks time and you'll be able to catch it over on Scr...

James Cameron, director, visionary and broodmother of James Cameron Presents James Cameron's Avatar Made By James Cameron, believes that videogame nerds, especially Halo fans, need to shut their holes about his latest epic mo...
We've all seen fanboys before. Ranting and raving, upsetting themselves by pretending that other people are trying to upset them, feeling persecuted while happily persecuting others. Wait, did I just describe fanboys or relig...
Following on from Time magazine's top ten games of the year, the Associated Press has chimed in with a list of its own. Unlike the eclectic and rather strange top ten of Time, it seems that AP has taken a walk on the safer si...
Prepare your sides for the splitting of a lifetime, because this is comedy you just can't buy! IGN officially gave the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 a 9.5, but when you compare it to the average reader review, ...
Developers make games for the fans -- or at least they say they do. A lot of times I think it's for the money, but in the case of Insomniac we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Since they make games because they want peo...
Did you know what when Infinity Ward revealed the packshot for Modern Warfare 2, some people were bitching and whining that an Xbox 360 box was revealed and not a PS3 one, even though they basically look the same? Seriously, ...
I say looks pretty good because I haven’t watched Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy yet. This fan made movie is 70 minutes long and I’m feeling way too A.D.D. to focus on one thing at the moment. Topless Robot watche...
[Editor's Note: We're not just a (rad) news site -- we also publish opinions/editorials from our community & employees like this one, though be aware it may not jive with the opinions of Destructoid as a whole, or how our...

My God this game is looking incredible.After more than a year in production (and after a fair share of Destructoid posts about it), the fan remake of underrated Game Boy game Metroid II: Return of Samus is nearing completion....
Killzone 2 launched exclusively for the PlayStation 3 this Friday, generating much bias from biased people who are biased. It also sold quite a few copies and has been setting the PlayStation Network afire with grenade spam a...
