Creepy iPod brings erasers, gnomes, from Telltale Games


Apr 24
// Ben Perlee
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...

Mar 15
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
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...

Analyzing No More Heroes 2, part 2: The bosses, part 2


Feb 08
// Jonathan Holmes
[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...

Feb 03
// Samit Sarkar
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...

Muscle March launch trailer imitates greatness


Jan 18
// Jonathan Holmes
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...

Muscle March coming this Monday for just five bucks


Jan 17
// Jonathan Holmes
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 ...

Games on Demand: Trivial Pursuit, Bolt, and FaceBreaker


Dec 08
// Jordan Devore
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...

The return of the F**khead: No More Heroes 2 ESRB listing


Nov 29
// Jonathan Holmes
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...

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...

This sounds necessary: A videogame based on The Host 2


Nov 04
// Jordan Devore
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...

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...

We come across some pretty strange console mods here on Destructoid. While it seems that most mods are purely a visual thing, some shoot for function or portability. I can only guess that was the goal with this latest find, a...
