Simply Amazing

Out of all the games I got a chance to see at EIEIO, Sabotage was by far my favorite game of the bunch. It's very fresh for a World War II based game and absolutely beautiful in graphics and the art direction.  The tra...
Epicness is nearing closer and closer. Paul Robertson, the genious behind Pirate Baby's Cabana Street Fight 2006, Do the Whirlwind, and plenty of other amazing stuff, just released a trailer for his latest work set to come ou...
Speaking at the Develop Conference in Brighton, UK, Peter Molyneux acknowledged that he is not only aware of a need to simplify complex game controls in order to reach a wider audience, but he and the team at Lionhead Studios...
Like YTMND Thursday last week, I had to sacrifice Art Attack Friday because of the insanity that was E3. AAF is back this week, and I have to say this is my favorite edition yet. This week, I have the pleasure of presenting ...
For the most part, I've always featured everyday Joe's on Art Attack Friday. This week, I'm changing things up by featuring a professional artist. Stanley "Artgerm" Lau is by far one of the most talente...
No doubt that most of you have seen a couple of Tranfuse's Samus Aran pictures scattered around the Internets before. The artist, Ivan "Transfuse" Flores, is easily one of the best in his field. Seriously, just ...
Now this is what I really love to do for Art Attack Friday. You! I want to see your stuff. Sure, it's great seeing other peoples work, but I'd really like to be able to feature you all as well. This week, a masterp...
We're all about love here at Destructoid, so we must say that we embrace this "love" that Lionhead is trying to bring across with Fable 2. The first in what should be a series of diaries leading up to the release of Fable 2, this video in particular deals with that human emotion that many of us feel as we see a robot glide into an empty room. Enjoy! 
Words cannot describe ... should have sent ... a poet.
While on the hunt for new artists to feature on Art Attack Friday, I accidentally came across Paxtin. I was simply blown away by how amazing this guy's art is. There is just a ton of stuff on his Deviant ART that is defin...
After getting the crap beat out of me by the Heavenly Sword build that kept crashing -- I think I lost track after three consecutive Mr. Freezes -- I was finally treated to another short and sweet demo of a game that easily...
Playing Lair this week was the first time that I can say the gameplay actually was good enough to stand up next to its graphical dominance. Every other time I've played the game, the SIXAXIS controls and chaos of Lair m...
The mysterious "UNDERSTAR" pointed us in the direction of some one of the first images from the set of the upcoming Hitman film. As you can see, Agent 47 (played by actor Timothy Olyphant), is not only signifi...
Announced during Tecmo's recent "Nite Out" press event, Project Rygar is set to hit the stage as a Wii exclusive. Sadly, not much was released at this time, other than some character and concept art. From IGN: B...
For the average gamer, picking up a next-gen console joystick and plugging away is an effortless activity. To a person with physical disabilities, this feat is simply not within the realm of possibility. While the many tightl...
In one word: stunning. The latest screenshots of Gran Turismo HD are not only nearly identical to their real-life equivalents, but they are also crisper and better saturated in most cases. The attention to detail to everythi...
Sure, you've seen all kinds of artsy fartsy stuff on Destructoid, but rarely do we see a polished DS case mod such as this. Behold, the ultimate DS mod. The Zelda-inspired design comes with matching docking station, and t...
I admit, I was completely wrong about the Wii. All those jokes about it being two GameCubes taped together was totally way off. The Wii is next gen and it can produce next-gen graphics and situations. I fully admit that I ...
ATI general managers must be hosting group hugging sessions right now, as the world's fastest new SLI video card from Nvidia was revealed today -- smoking their offerings by a sizable gap. Next-gen reports early benchmar...
It's hard to believe that these NBA Live 2008 images are actual production screenshots. Unlike the somewhat creepy humans in Virtua Tennis 3, the texture and modelling work in next-gen EA sports games continue to push th...
I've professed my adoration and respect for David Jaffe many, many times. He's honest, outspoken, and usually dead on when it comes to his opinions on the gaming industry -- something he and Destructoid share in co...
 Destructoid photoshop contests are always a reminder of just how much our community F*CKING RULES! I'd like to thank everyone who participated, dutifuly putting in the time to attach underwear to everything from pop...
It absolutely amazes me how many awesome artists Destructoid seems to attract. We first heard of Glen Brogan back in September when Niero showed off some of his pieces. Shortly after that, we partnered up with Glen and ha...
 Look I drink...and from time to time the makes me slow to get out breaking news. You may have seen Kotaku and AOL Joystiq's coverage of the Elite along with everybody else that got one today, but they all seemed to ...
Pro gaming is the future of sports. We're starting to see little hints at it now, but believe me, this genre will be huge -- just ask Asia and Europe. The latest step in this growing field is the announcement today by the...
After nearly a year of little to no updates, it would appear that the first-person fantasy Project Offset would be lost in the vaporware chasm of power-hungry software, forever ill-suited for a common man's gaming rig. N...
With pictures of Captain N, The Great American Hero and even Ghostbusters, Dan Schoening's artwork is like living the 80s all over again with Steve Gutinberg as your roommate. Zing!All kidding aside, Dan does create some ...
Put a lot of work into that home-built MAME arcade cabinet, have you? Well, be prepared to hack it into scrap and start over; gaze upon the coolest custom gaming cabinet ever built and tremble.Gregory over at Apartment Therap...
If you are a retrophile such as myself, then I must ask you to please pick your jaw up off the floor after seeing the above headline and image. A fabled golden Nintendo World Championships 1990 (NWC) cart recently sold within...
If you ever needed a reason to upgrade your PC, then Crysis certainly may be it. In this latest trailer you can see just how stunning, and I mean stunning, this game really is. Ready to plunk down thousands to play this first-person shooter? Time to get those crack sales pumping.
Man, you gotta love a studio like Insomniac. Not only are they one of the best companies in America to work for and, I'm told, shower their employees with money and naked attractive people on a daily basis, but they'v...
While you and I may debate which console is more powerful/easiest to develop for, the true voice of reason is the programmers and such who are on the front lines of this next-gen war. We should be listening to the people who ...
Today has unofficially become tehuberone day. Or rather Tehubertoid day. First RevAntony featured his fake game concept. Then Summa showed off the extreme Destructoid haircut. Now, here I am with Tehuberone's Destructoid ...
Our community is the best damn Internet gaming community on the entire Web. Don't believe me ... still? Take a look at what one of our most hardcore members, tehuberone, did to the back of some poor guy's skull. You're the man now dog.Discuss the bad hair day here, in the forums. 
Welcome to the first “Story So Far” ever. This series will help you catch up to speed on game sequels and the storylines that preceded them. Today sees the release of Prince of Persia: Rival Swords for the W...
When the Dtoid crew last saw Lair at CES for the PlayStation 3, we were not very impressed. Sure, it looked OK, but trying to actually control the game proved to be the most disappointing thing this side of Sanjaya still bein...
It’s official! Mass Effect, one of the most anticipated games for the Xbox 360 (besides that Halo thing), will be shipping on June 5.I would tell you I am excited for this game, but I have to make this quick since I am ...
This week's AAF spotlight shines brightly on tOkKa. There's not much to say about him. Just a lot of rambling on all of his sites (reminds you of a certain someone?) His work speaks loud enough for him though. Alt...
Treehuggers, put down your soy beans and inch a little closer for this one: The guys from Tom's Hardware have put together a rolling solar-powered Wii kiosk using a single 20 watt solar panel to run their gaming rig. So ...
  When I talked about splurging on Destructoid's anniversary party, there was no money better spent than (A) flying my peeps down to Miami and (B) inviting my favorite gaming industry music performer Jonathan "...
