What the hell was that?


I've contemplated returning to Team Fortress 2, if only for a few matches, but I'll probably get my ass kicked. After watching this skillful highlight reel from Demoman player Kaidus, I'm sure of it. This guy knows what you're going to do before you do.


When I saw that a game called Warehouse and Logistics Simulator had been released, I thought "Yeah, makes sense the way the Simulator franchise has been heading." Really, I've just been holding out for Car Park Attendant Simu...


Indie Buskers is a group of developers who participate in game jams to help pay the bills. Rat King is one of those developers, consisting of a two-person team with a pretty diverse portfolio. In the most recent Indie Buskers...


Limbo of the Lost is the stuff nightmares are made of (see above) and the stuff of lawsuits, as well. It's a perfect storm of all things terrible that makes a game in the adventure genre -- a genre that even at its worst can ...




Jennifer Prince at Bloomberg has figured out the real cost of being a videogamer. Through some powerful research she has come up with a final tally for what being a gamer would cost a family of four based in San Fra...


Today, Mash Tactics is playing whatever they feel like. The end of the week is what we affectionately call "A.D.D. Fridays." We take suggestions on what to play, then we play along with the people watching at home. Mash Ta...


[Update: There's a phone number on the site, 1-502-383-1956, that connects you to a Google Voice line. Yeah, this is starting to sound like some garage developer's having a few jollies.] A website with a teaser trailer for s...


It is no secret that I am a very big fan of Assassin's Creed, and you can imagine my excitement when we saw all new gameplay for Revelations at gamescom. I was even more excited when we saw gameplay of Altair! ...


Sega's 20th Anniversary party at E3 was probably the highlight of the show for a lot of people; there's not a whole lot that can top a live performance of Needlemouse: The musical. Well, that wondrous group of theatrical gen...


Back in November, I told you about "Anthony Saves the World," an online web series by Mikey Neuman and Anthony Burch of Gearbox Software. (Yes, that's the same "Reverend" Anthony Burch whose face used to be plastered all over...


One of the titles I was most excited to play was the recently announced PS3 game Tokyo Jungle. The concept seemed so funny to me when I first heard about it -- it's animals on the loose in Tokyo, fighting for survival. Finall...


PlayStation Japan has a teaser countdown page running right now. In its URL we find the Japanese word amimono, which relates to knitting. In the background of the teaser counter you'll find a man in a tuxedo knitting as two g...


Red 5 Studios, which is probably more known for being home to a number of ex-Blizzard folks than anything else, is working on a mysterious MMO of some fashion. No, they aren't ready to talk specifics yet, but they do want to ...


First off, if you haven't yet checked out Super Mario Crossover -- the Super Mario Bros. remake of sorts that allows you to play through the game with a host of heroes from other 8-bit classics -- please do so imme...


Well, that has got to be one of the creepiest header images ever. I don't even have coulrophobia and I'm creeped the eff out right now. The man in the harlequin costume you see above is GameStop's pre-order bonus for Assassin...


Sin & Punishment is easily in my top five favorite N64 games. Scary thing is, it almost didn't make it to the US. Thanks to the magic of the Wii's Virtual Console, the game finally left Japan back in 2007. Thanks to the g...


On Thursday, I got a weird text from Hamza. It said, "You've gotten a package in the mail". Now, unlike most of the Dtoid SF office staff, I don't live in Casa de Destructoid, so I was a little wary of what could be inside. S...


We're not sure how, and we're especially not sure why, but Destructoid and 2K Games are locked in never ending food eating battle. It started with a pie eating contest with P.B. Winterbottom's producer Paul Bellezza, which th...


[These posts on No More Heroes 2 are purely speculation. I have no idea what the team at Grasshopper Manufacture intended for the game to mean; I can only speak to what I've taken away from it, so if you don't enjoy potential...


Let me answer your first question: “string metal,” also known as “cello rock” or “cello metal,” is a sub-genre of music that is exactly what you probably think it is -- rock/metal music in...


I get a real "Mr. Sparkle" vibe from this video, and it's not necessarily a good thing. Maybe that's just because I'm just getting into Muscle March right now after months of anticipation, but I'm just not ready to see it la...


Army of Two: The 40th Day is out on store shelves now, and we've reviewed it. Usually this means the end of the line for trailers and such, but Electronic Arts has one more up its sleeve. Above you can watch Salem and Rio tr...


Did you know that the initial trailer for Muscle March was one of the most viewed video posts on Destructoid in 2009? It got nearly half a million hits last year. Not bad for a game we all thought would never leave Japan. In...


Here it is. After two weeks of demystifying a program I've never used before, followed by a two-day fistfight trying to convert the video, I am proud, thrilled, horrified, ashamed and (insert a dozen other emotions here) to ...


We have a really awesome interview with Suda 51 coming, I promise we do. In the meantime, check out the creative mind behind Killer 7 and the No More Heroes 2 chat about his latest work while showing off exclusive footage of...


If games like FaceBreaker, Bolt, and Trivial Pursuit could talk, A) that'd be kind of alarming and B) they would be eternally grateful for Games on Demand. These poor games -- with the exception of maybe Bolt, because kids ar...


What is Destructoid? It's this thing! We publish it. We love our readers. We have unleashed a string of contests so awesome that babies and whales are reportedly melting. But first, a matter of business. I'd like to remind ev...


Oh Infinity Ward, you so silly! Not content to cook up a big gay sh*tstorm with its notorious Modern Warfare 2 F.A.G.S commercial, it seems that Infinity Ward had to slip some homononsensical banter into the game itself. Yes...


Capybara Games, the creative minds who brought us the lovable but gross Critter Crunch, are going back to iPhone development for their next project. It's a collaboration between them, Superbrothers, and Jim Guthrie of some s...


We haven't heard too much about No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle lately, which had me worried that the game wasn't going to make its January 2010 launch date. Seeing the ESRB rating for the game has put those worries to r...


Yep, the box art for BioShock 2 sure does look similar in style and substance to the first ga--whoa. Now wait just a minute! What ... what is that? Look to the left of the Little Sister's head! What is that thing? After askin...


So, I took a five-hour bus ride to New York City yesterday to do some video coverage of the New Super Mario Bros. Wii launch event at the Nintendo World Store. It was supposed to be a four-hour bus ride, but somehow the good ...


Oh ... my ... God ... Please forgive me for taking the Lord's name in vain, but if you're yet to see this, you will most likely blaspheme along with me. This video is currently doing the rounds, and really, it has to be seen...


A videogame adaptation of The Host would have turned out pretty bad, I imagine, but there's no way it could (theoretically) top the upcoming first-person shooter based upon The Host 2. Now I know Jonathan recently listed some...


Recent pre-release footage of No More Heroes 2 has been awesome, and it seems that the Shinobu/8-bit work-games videos from a few weeks ago were just the start of it. This new trailer gives us our first close look at the gam...


While social networking and Web 2.0 have caused many a misanthropic headache (see Jonathon's weekly Fanboy Friday posts, for example), Twitter and Facebook can certainly be useful. On the rather heavy side of the spectrum, th...


Well, our review copy of XSEED's JU-ON: The Grudge for Wii showed up yesterday, and... yeah. Where do I start with this one? Stuffed inside an innocuous-looking FedEx package was a manila envelope, covered in blood and a...


Not safe for work. Also, related (and not safe for work either).  [via TinyCartridge]


In one of the first developer diaries for Dragon Age: Origins, the team behind the RPG indirectly addresses a powerful question: how does one bring something fresh and unique to the saturated fantasy genre? The answer, it see...


Game Watch just gave me another reason to want a Japanese DSi. This newly announced bit of DSiWare, entitled Time Diagnosis, looks like it could easily fill the WarioWare shaped hole that (in my opinion) the service currently...
