Cliffy B 'upset' by hateful 8/10 Gears of War 3 reviews


Sep 16
// Jim Sterling
With any other videogame, scoring an 8/10 would be considered glowing praise. According to Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski, however, that couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, according to him, anybody who dares give Gear...

When all is said and done, it is quite possible that Rockstar will have spent roughly $105 million to develop its oft-delayed Max Payne 3. Worded differently, the game will have to sell around four million units just to make ...

EA: Call of Duty will be dead in three years


Aug 22

As if to confirm everything Activision said about it last week, Electronic Arts is back with yet more petty sniping. After Eric Hirshberg last week said EA's mudslinging was bad for the industry, EA has retorted with mocking ...

Destructoid wants your balls in Ms. Splosion Man pinball

Jul 26 // Niero Gonzalez
This trifecta of indie awesomeness was about through strenuous industry-standard barley repurposing practices during GDC 2011. I'd like to thank Nick, Mel, Hamza, Jay, and Michael for seeing this through from plastered suggestion to such an insane execution!  This marks the 10th video game cameo of Mr. Destructoid, who has also appeared in the upcoming Retro City Rampage, Bomberman Live, Dino Run, Super Meat Boy, Raskulls, and others -- including Ms. Splosion Man. As a guy who started a videogame blog just for fun it's difficult to describe just how grateful I am to be affiliated with such a cool project.  Now, if you'll excuse me I have to phone my nephew who, upon seeing this, will surely defecate himself.  Thanks everyone for your reading our wacky robot-themed video game website, we're ridiculously grateful for your support! We'll have more details and a gameplay video for you in the days before its release. For more info on Ms. Splosion man check out TwistedPixelGames.com, and Pinball FX2 is the handiwork of ZenStudios.com.

Do you know how long we've been wanting to talk about this?  I swear it's like a walking around with grenades in your shorts!  I'm so ridiculously excited to announce today that Mr. Destructoid is in Pinball FX2 on ...

Prototype 2 has a Father's Day message for you


Jun 17
// Jordan Devore
I promised myself that if the powers that be continued pumping out Prototype 2-themed cards for every single holiday, I'd make sure we posted them all. And, it looks like they're actually following through. F*ck! So here you are, fathers everywhere. Enjoy (?) this ridiculous image.

May 27
// Maurice Tan
Not tired of Nyan cat yet? Here is a Nyan cat game for you! It's not exactly "new" but it's the first I've seen of it, and that's what counts. It's a dodgy version of Robot Unicorn Attack with Nyan cat -- hence Nyanicorn -- w...

NPD acts wankish, blocks media from seeing sales figures


Mar 28

The videogame industry is utterly f*cking stupid when it comes to secrecy, and nowhere has that become more apparent than with the NPD. For those who don't know, the NPD collects sales data of videogames and consoles in North...

Interplay: Bethesda's Fallout MMO lawsuit is absurd


Jan 10

If you've not been following the long Bethesda vs. Interplay struggle, take my advice -- don't. It's utterly stupid and depressing, and the latest chapter takes it to a whole new realm of stupid. Bethesda has claimed that it ...

This will make three posts over one lawsuit this weekend, but when Activision sues the sh*t hits the fan. While for the most part this lawsuit has very little impact on us gamers, it appears that we may now thank the legal is...

Project Offset sighting: Yep, another tech demo


Feb 19

Project Offset has been in "does it even exist?" territory for far too long, as far as I'm concerned. There's been a steady stream of tech demonstrations for years now, so yeah, it likely exists in some playable form. But wi...

Before we jump into this, let me catch you up to speed. It's my job to obsess over these sorts of factoids, and even I had forgotten about some of Project Offset's history. Every time the first-person fantasy game is shown in...
