Here are our Lollipop Chainsaw contest winners!

Last week, we asked you to be our Dtoid cheerleaders in order to win a box full of Lollipop Chainsaw goodies. The results were a mix of hilarious, disturbing, and ... well, more disturbing. Sadly, only ten of you could walk a...

Objectification and Lollipop Chainsaw photo
Objectification and Lollipop Chainsaw
by Jim Sterling

It is said that Suda 51 always has something to say with his games, even when it looks like he's saying nothing at all. From abstract and disturbed curiosities such as Killer7 to silly and vulgar adventures like No More Heroes, there's always some commentary, satire, or further subtext buried deep within Suda's initially bizarre ideas. Just check out Matt Razak's two-part analysis on the true meaning of No More Heroes 2 for some more proof.

Lollipop Chainsaw, with its focus on comedy and balls-out insanity, is perhaps the hardest Grasshopper Manufacture game to scrutinize. On the surface, the game is pure fan service -- a gory zombie hack n' slash game starring a young woman who isn't shy about showing off her physical assets. When you dig deeper you ... don't find much else. 

However, I think I cracked an underlying theme that runs throughout the story. A subtle one, but one worth examining. Lollipop Chainsaw has something to say on the matter of objectification, and before you think I'm pointing out the obvious -- I am not talking about Juliet.

The DTOID Show: Pikmin, Dawnguard, and Tomb Raider

Today on the Destructoid Show, I forget how to read off a teleprompter, because I've been shouting into a stick mic with no script all week at E3. Tara's on vacation, so we've got Anthony Carboni filling in for her. The news ...

Review: Lollipop Chainsaw photo
Review: Lollipop Chainsaw
by Jim Sterling

Lollipop Chainsaw is the kind of game I dread having to review. Not because I necessarily dislike the game, and not because I foresee it becoming the center of yet another trite videogame review controversy. I dread these kinds of game because attempting to describe them is just so difficult. No words will ever truly do them justice, and no description can ever adequately substitute for a firsthand experience. 

Experiencing Lollipop Chainsaw firsthand, however, is something that I believe almost all of you ought to do. Few products are as dedicated to fun as this, bearing as it does the soul of games that many of us gladly tossed quarters into at the local bowling alley, so many years ago. Its similarities to other games are abundant, but as many games as it can be compared to, Lollipop Chainsaw defies a suitable description. It is, at once, like so many titles out there, and so unlike anything else. 

Now I have to try and review the damn thing.

New trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw all about the gameplay

We're officially just less than two weeks away from Lollipop Chainsaw. Are you excited? I know for a fact that I am. I also know quite a few people who aren't sure to be excited or not, because they simply aren't sure of the...

Preview: Hands-on with Juliet Starling's decapitated head
by Tara Long

To clarify, it's not Juliet's decapitated head - it's her boyfriend Nick's, though it may as well be hers. If you can tie your lover's head to a chain and swing him around in circles repeatedly pummeling any and all zombies in your path, then it's probably safe to make that assumption.

In fact, I did just that during my first ever hands-on session with Lollipop Chainsaw this week, and I left feeling relieved (and mildly turned on, but that's another matter). The combat feels good without being overly repetitive, and the wide array of combo moves and colorful humor serve to add a decent amount of variety. Also, upskirts.

Oh god, the upskirts.

Lollipop Chainsaw Special Edition includes Jessica Nigri?

It seems like every new release these days has a special collector's edition of one form or another: paperweight dragons, underpants, sex dolls, whatever. The point is, every game absolutely must have one -- regardless ...

Juliet's extra costumes unlockable in Lollipop Chainsaw

Remember when it was announced that all of Juliet's alternate costumes would be available worldwide? That was great news, except it wasn't clear if they would be available to us at a price, or if they would be included in the...

Meet the happy zombie-hunting family of Lollipop Chainsaw
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Every Lollipop Chainsaw trailer just keeps upping the crazy and it's no different here with our exclusive look at Juliet Starling's sisters. Big sister Cordelia Starling is an expert zombie hunter that wields a long range sniper rifle. Her turn-ons include inflicting bullet wounds and quesadillas.

Rosalind Starling is the youngest sister, an apprentice zombie hunter. Her biggest dream in life is to meet Justin Bieber ... and add his skull to her skull collection.

Lollipop Chainsaw will be out on June 12 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out our preview and all our other coverage of Suda 51's latest.

Here's an utterly ridiculous Lollipop Chainsaw trailer

Would you like to watch just under three minutes of complete silliness? Of course you do! This new trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw explains some of the ways in which Juliet Starling can decimate the undead horde, and while it starts quite sensibly, things get too barmy for words by the end.  I think we've praised this game enough lately, so just watch the video. It says everything it needs to.

Juliet cleans off zombie bits in Lollipop Chainsaw video

Zombies are messy. Like, really messy. Their fragile bodies are falling apart and full of blood, so I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Juliet gets covered in zombie bits after a day of slaying them with her chainsaw. She ...

Urine and Yamaoka on the Lollipop Chainsaw soundtrack

A lot of people call Suda 51 (creator of Lollipop Chainsaw) the Quentin Tarantino of videogames. While I see some similarities there, I don't think the analogy is quite right. Quentin Tarantino is big on "real talk...
