Wiitards


Don't you just love live TV? The Home Shopping Network was selling a Wii with a 15 Wiimote accessory pack when the best thing that could have ever happen, happened. The host goes to swing the Wiimote with a tennis racket att...


Crappy peripheral maker Areus Tech had already blown the world away when they revealed they were going to release a whopping 21-piece Wii Remote attachment collection, but they weren't content with mediocrity. 21 is such a lo...


Seriously? Are people really beating down doors for the upcoming Wii accessory Wii MotionPlus and the new game Wii Sports Resort? They haven't even played it yet, but somehow the device and game are ranked on Amazon.com's top...


Remember that Robocalypse Wii "sequel" rumor we wrote about not too long ago? Well, it was mostly right. Vogster has announced today that it will be bringing Robocalypse: Beaver Defense to WiiWare this summer. ...




Usually, there's nothing funny about a woman abusing her slot, but this one is just too good to pass up. A NeoGAF eyewitness has recounted the tale of how his neighbor -- a poor, unassuming, completely out-of-touch woman -- t...


[video]114866:890[/video]Evasive Space is a top-down action adventure title where you pilot a spaceship through obsctacles. You're working on a time limit, working to collect items on missions to save the universe from someon...


I don't know what you think of when you imagine Wii Fit gaming, but I've always pictured a obese woman in ill-fitting sports wear, jumping up and down on a plastic board that can barely take her weight. She steps on the cat's...


“SAFE! SAFE! You’re always safe when you choose Hamilton!” Thus begins this priceless car commercial from Hamilton Nissan (Hagerstown, MD) and Hamilton Hyundai (Chambersburg, PA). A ‘ten’ on th...


As if splitting videogames into "hardcore" and "casual" wasn't stupid enough, Nintendo has decided to throw another idiotic and ill-defined buzzword into the ring -- announcing that Mario Kart Wii is now a...


Nobody likes being disagreed with, and nobody enjoys having something that they like besmirched. However, when it comes to differences of opinion, there is a marked difference between debating the issue and becoming a stupid,...


I thought I had seen the worst video game port ever. I was wrong. Today, news hit our internets that this summer, lucky Japanese Wii owners will have the opportunity to buy Resident Evil Zero for their beloved show stealing c...


Last year, Nintendo announced an upcoming Wii channel that would allow owners of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl to transfer their Pokemon from either DS game over to their Wii for purposes of sorting and storage. Then, the...


It seems that electronics company Panasonic has taken notice of the high number of idiots that can't keep ahold of their Wii Remotes. They could just continue making and selling regular televisions, citing their locked down w...


CVG has uncovered some absolutely stunning ideas from Nintendo -- stunning due to just how unbelievably stupid they are. If you thought Nintendo couldn't get lower than The Virtual Boy or R.O.B, just look at what the company ...


Not yet, at least. We hear so much about how the Nintendo Wii's wand wiggling could benefit a player's physical fitness, but a new study says that it may not benefit us as much as we originally thought.Dalhousie University s...


First off, yes, this video is old. I've never seen it before and it has never graced Destructoid though, so it's perfectly OK for me to post this! Anyway, mainstream media had made a startling discover on our Internets. They...


We've all heard about how dangerous videogames are from a variety of crackpots who vilify their violent content and penchant for teaching kids how to murder people, but it's not often that the virgin-white Wii is branded dang...


I'm not out to rain on anyone's parade, but all of that arm flailing in front of your Nintendo Wii may not be helping your physical fitness as much as you'd like to think it is. A study called "Energy expenditure in adol...


This clip is from the new T.V. show called Life. This clip is also one of the worst representation of what videogames are that has ever graced prime time. A lot of shows lately like The Office, My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, House...


I don't know how else to title this article, nor do I know what to say, really. This is a weird one, that's for damn certain. Go Nintendo reader Tony sent an email to the aforementioned site telling the story of how his wife ...


You can file this one under the "how the hell did they stretch this one to over three minutes?" category. Here's a parody song from Amy Winehouse (or rather, Amy Brickhouse) called Wiihab in which the scary songstre...


Only yesterday I brought you Nintendo's most pompous claim yet -- that gamers were apparently bored until Nintendo rubbed the cobwebs from their eyes and introduced our messiah in the Wii. However, according to research, it i...


The horrible Nick Chester informed us yesterday that Nintendo is giving away free protection covers for Wii owners (thanks to all of the Wiitards, no doubt). Well it apparently is going to cost Nintendo over $17 million to do...


Look I drink...and this results in a lot of apologies. Be it to a Catholic Bishop, AOL, or the shopping cart I "allegedly" molested at Wal-Mart. But, I have never ever apologized with a bag of marijuana cigarettes.&...


I hate it when our medium leaks into T.V. and movies since it's usually butchered (a good example of what I'm talking about will be on Weekend Destructainment this week). So I always have to cringe when I see our pasttime abo...


There's something about we gamers that seems to give us an innate ability to home in on any and all homoerotic material and make as big a deal of it as possible. This would help explain why everybody's jumping on the 'news' t...


Destructoid reader cjpkiller sent me an email this morning letting me know he saw this and thought of me. He was right to do it. What we have here is a nice collection of some of the most insane blathering I've ever seen with...


Last week we told you about the classic board game The Game of Life making its way to the Nintendo Wii, and now it looks like another popular board game is getting a Wii-working.I've only played Cranium twice before, and both...


It seems like gaming companies are slowly taking away our right to sit still and motionless while playing our games. The Wii already has us doing every type of silly motion humanly possible, and even the PS3 sometimes has us ...


Took them long enough, didn't it? After months of waiting, we finally have some cheap, terrible Wiimote knock-off on the shelves of Walmart, in the form of four LCD sports 'games' in an inconvenient Wiimote-shaped case. For s...


In my short tenure at Destructoid, I've done a lot of things I never thought I would. I've eaten cocktail sausages with games companies, I've been stranded in the Hilton Hotel with Pure Pwnage and angry Norwegians. I've telep...


The third-party accessory makers have been pitching mostly unnecessary add-ons for our game consoles and related devices for a some time now. This is the first controller accessory that we've seen in a long time that actually...


You remember Wiimbledon, right? The first ever Wii Tennis tournament was a hit, and now one of the founders moves on to the next natural Wii sport in the progression: bowling. Wiimbledon organizer Steve Bryant joins man-abou...


Screens and scans of the upcoming Soul Calibur spin-off for the Wii have flowed freely as of late, but now you can finally get a chance to see it in action. And I do use the term "action" very loosely, as only the m...


You've gotta love Cooking Mama. Sure, she's got a dark side, but who doesn't? At her heart, Mama is a good-hearted woman who only wants to help you become the great chef she knows you can be. She invited you into ...


Part hipster costume party, part casual Wii-gamer, and part "Well, I don't really want to fit into either of those other two categories, so I suppose I'll just drink a lot of beer instead" would all aptly d...


 This past Saturday, .Tiff, Analog Pidgin, Phist and I headed out to Barcade in Brooklyn, NY to check out the first annual Wiimbledon event. Also to drink lots of reasonably priced microbrews, as evidenced by my fail...


I truly find it hard to believe that anyone is still actually playing Wii Sports, much less the "sounds great on paper, but about as fun as trying to bite your own ear" Wii Boxing. But then again, NPD numbers indica...


Man. Remember when people actually cared that much about the PS3? Those were the days. Although when I interviewed several campers on launch night, most of them were planning to turn around and sell it, and one girl who had c...


We've all seen the videos on YouTube and read the stories. Injuries caused by overzealous game players getting hurt by way of the Wiimote are nothing new to any of us. However, getting your very own medical term coined af...
