Pimps of gaming

Sneakers and the NES, together at last! It was once such a fruitless struggle -- I'd spend hours, sometimes days of my childhood cramming NES cartridges into my Thomas the Tank Engine boots, desperate to be able to play Greml...

Aaah, Balrog, you never get your dues, do you? Recognized only for having your name swapped with M. Bison, you will remain one of the least cared about Street Fighter characters ever. But fret not, oh noble boxer of confusing...
Our beloved Tiff was kind enough to post the trailer for The King of Kong for us last month, and I've been patiently waiting ever since to see the full film in the theatre. What I was expecting was a light hearted tale about ...
Look I drink...but I also love cool tech gadgets. Awhile back Aaron brought you coverage of a NES/iPod mod and I think I  have found you another one. As soon as I caught this, I knew that el Dtoid comunidad wou...
So, with the fun of E3 now over and even the UK staff recovering from hard journalistic work, it's time to get our noses back to the grindstone and, very much like cleaners dealing with the morning after a wedding party,...
Look I drink...And if anyone can make me laugh at Guitar Hero, it has to be the guys at mailordercomedy. I could write more, but it would be pointless. Like the time I tried to marry a piece of Bluberry pie. Wait. That was Fa...
This week's Podtoid took on a bit of worldly flavor with the addition of Cheapy D (coming at ya' from the dank, post-apocalyptic streets of Neo-Tokyo Japan), and a sleep-addled cameo from the reigning queen of the DT...

Yes, I know, I'm gangsta'. Don't be intimidated.A slew of new images from little-known indie game Grand Theft Auto IV were just released and, I have to say, I am very impressed (check them all out in the gallery b...
Sadly, especially for me, I wasn't able to get any hands-on time with Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. But, I did ask around to find out impressions others had of the game and not one little person had a ...
While pro gaming is certainly huge in the likes of Asia and across Europe, it really hasn't caught on quite yet in the States. We have our own e-sports channel on DIRECTV, but who in the hell has DIRECTV? The latest profe...

Oh the pageantry of two nerds sitting at a computer surrounded by adoring crowds, bright lights and the pressure of being the best ... simply the best. Color me weird, but I always found the way professional gaming was handled and appreciated overseas to be fascinating and this video is a perfect example of why. Any chance we could ever see a spectacle like this in the U.S.? I doubt it.
Take this documentary of one of the world's most legendary Pac-Man players, Alexander Seymor Smith (best initials ever) as a cautionary tale: Let the world know that there is only one A.S.S. before it's too late. Also...
It's fairly standard: You go to a convention, you get a ton of swag. One of the most pimped-out swag items we've seen so far, though, is this hotness from Killer -- they make high-end network interface cards that he...
These guys know how to party: last night we spent some quality time with a ton of industry folks at the W Hotel -- en evening of screaming, sharing stories, and testing the body's physical alcohol consumption limits. Pict...

Nintendo stated that their plan with the name "Wii" was an effort to make a console that could appeal to everyone universally. While I wasn't so crazy about the name itself (or the related appearance of every pe...

Yea! It's time again for more manly men from Final Fantasy games. *audience applause*Now sit back and relax as we present to you the next three contestants in our list of manly men. All are very eager to meet you and have...
I thought at first it would be hard to make a new silly picture each day to go with my posts, but Final Fantasy XII screen shots are pretty easy to make fun of, which is just wrong I think. Or at least it should be. Today I&#...
In the spirit of he whom doth unpack mountains of expensive UPS boxes I bring you another installment of Captain Obvious, or Capitan No Jodas for you spanish kids.  Confirming what our little hearts and minds knew from...
Okay, so it's not quite as grand a gesture as, say, Capcom showering the former employees of the now-defunct Clover Studio with cash and concubines and granting them carte blanche to create whatever bizarre or otherwise ...
I hope Lady Ashe checked that her husband to be was actually a man first, because that is one girlie looking guy. Yesterday I posted the first of 3 examples of manly man from Final Fantasy games and today I have 3 more t...
I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XII for the last few days and I’ve come to the realization that SquareEnix needs to be reminded what a real man looks like. Every male character in the game is prettier looking th...
I've professed my love before of Broken Pixels, so Jesus Christ on a cracker was I happy to see a brand new one today. They don't come out often enough, so when they do, it's like my very own holiday with a cherry on top. Check out the boys as they diss on retarded Baby Spice and the Spice Girls and Total Recall Arnold. Enjoy!
