Dec 26
// Dale North
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...

Dec 01

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...

Greybushtainment: Dave's not here man


Sep 24
// NO LONGER WORKS AT DESTRUCTOID
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.&...

Sep 17

UR MR GAY! Super Mario Galaxy artwork holds a mirror to your homosexuality


Sep 16
// Jim Sterling
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...

PS2 gets its own wiggle wand


Aug 17
// Dale North
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 ...

Aug 16
// Jim Sterling
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...

Make yourself look sillier playing Wii Sports; introducing Wii Boxing Gloves


Jun 17
// Nick Chester
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...
