George Costanza's Frogger high score beaten in real life

What's the deal with Frogger? It's an interactive recreation of a tragic daily occurrence in which frogs become roadkill. Also, it faithfully reproduces how frogs often jump from turtles to logs to crocodiles in order to reac...

M.U.L.E. gets a sleek new look, continues to torment me photo
M.U.L.E. gets a sleek new look, continues to torment me
by Jordan Devore

M.U.L.E. Now there's a game I've heard a heck of a lot about, but was never really able or willing to fidget around with for long enough to "get it." Now that I think about it, sitting down and learning to not suck at this resource management game would've helped to make Econ 212 less of a bummer.

As discovered by Shacknews, Planet M.U.L.E. is now officially a go. Self-described as a "remake and tribute" to the '80s original, it not only looks the part of a sophisticated indie darling, it plays like one too. As one of the early fathers of multiplayer, it's nice to be able to say this updated version is online-enabled.

Like a fool, I attempted to jump right in without reading up on the recommended literature. Between wasting my first turn with a trip to the pub and making a bigger fool of myself at the auction house, I was just glad this wasn't a live multiplayer session I was attending. Forgive me, Planet M.U.L.E. AI.

Then, I found a dead moose rat and sold its carcass for $50. At that point, it became apparent there was no topping my recent success, so I quit while I was ahead. It was an eventful ten minutes, to say the least.

Real Girlfriend screens make me feel physically sick

Real Girlfriend is yet another in a long line of Japanese erotic games, except this one is slightly more advanced than your usual wad of glorified hentai. This particular game joins the twenty-first century with 3D graphics, ...

Yakuza designer would 'never want to make' a GTA game

Geon Cube is more super and Pac-Man than Super Pac-Man

Have you heard of Geon Cube? Yeah, I didn't think so; I hadn't either until I got this press release. That lack of press alone probably spells doom for this game. No matter how great it turns out, people aren't going to buy i...

Secrets abound in NES Punch Out!!, here's one

I played the original Punch-Out!! on the NES until my fingers bled. This was mostly because I sucked at it, but I was determined to beat it. I did, once, during a weekend night of glory that I have attempted to recreate, but ...

Peripherally Speaking: Nyko's Perfect Shot photo
Peripherally Speaking: Nyko's Perfect Shot
by Jonathan Holmes

Three things you should know about me before reading this: I hate doing stuff I don't feel like doing (some call it laziness, I call it "strong willed"), I'm a sucker for free stuff, and I hate gaming peripherals. Those are the three aspects of my personality that came to a head in the process of being put to the task of reviewing the Perfect Shot. I promised Nyko I would review this thing weeks ago, and I kept putting it off, until I heard that they wouldn't be sending us any more free stuff until we reviewed all the free stuff they've already sent us.

So here it is, the official Destructoid review of Nyko's Perfect Shot, with cute sales girl included -- though unlike the Nyko girls at E3 09, she's totally wigless. Other than that small oversight, this post is the greatest thing in the history of the Internet. Hit the jump to see what I'm talking about.
