Google surveyed the world and the top 10 autocomplete answers are on the board -- try to guess what they are in Google Feud, a brand new site that uses Google's autocorrect to create a single-player Family Feud-like expe...


Today, Nickelodeon launched the latest show on its Saturday morning lineup: Rabbids Invasion. Teased about for years, the new program is about... the Rabbids, and they do... things. Ummmm... yeah, that's basically the gist o...


Got a couple of minutes to spare? What am I saying? Of course you do! Check this shizz out! NeoGAF user asa spent a few days messing around in Unity in order to make a nifty interactive NES music box. By pressing the power bu...


Seriously, just because. Look at how derpy Yoshi looks! Remember that dumb running Sonic meme? I seriously want to see derpy videogame characters take off like this. It's so cute! The artwork was done by lxromero, who also did some cute takes on Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Mega Man.




Remember that guy who said Microsoft's Xbox division cannot be sustained by the company? Well, here comes another analyst with the same suggestion, going so far as to believe rival Sony could acquire the brand. Them's some da...


I've got two words for you: "Human Caterpie." If you are wondering if you should watch this Pokémon animation by Mosama, first check out his webcomic Satan's Excrement. If that floats your boat, then by all means, carry on! The Pokemon Hoarder [YouTube]


Muahahahahahahaha!




If tech reporters seem excited today about the prospect of Project Shield, a new handheld PC gaming console by Nvidia, it’s probably because they are at CES where there is little else to be excited about within the co...

I failed to mention that, immediately following the Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion preview event last month, Warren Spector led all the journalists on a tour through Magic Kingdom. We went on the Magic Carpet, Haunted...


Hideki Kamiya is a man responsible for a lot of Capcom's success, being influential in the creation of Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. His work as director for that latter game, however, seems to have caused him to go ballis...


So yesterday I reviewed Resident Evil 6, and I didn't like it, which was sad. The critics have been very split on the whole thing, with scores ranging from from the very low to the very high. It's a polarizing experience, th...


BioWare is dead serious about upholding its Terms of Services and will bring down the hammer of justice hard should you step out of line. One member (username withheld) of the Star Wars: The Old Republic message board learned...


Have you seen Fox's Terra Nova? It's a show about a family that travels back in time to prehistoric Earth through a fracture in time to save the human race. Steven Spielberg is an executive producer, and there's special effec...


On Friday, I posted Luigi's Mansion parody in which the titular mansion was barely shown. Above, I post a Pokémon video in which zero Pokémon are ever seen on screen. Is this a new trend? Has everyone been inspired by Garfield Minus Garfield? Busted Pixel: Scott Hates Pokémon [YouTube]


In news that's perfect for such a slow pre-holiday day, more hilarious things have happened on Craigslist! This time, a frustrated woman is selling her Modern Warfare 3-obsessed husband on Craigslist. If you promise to take c...


I don't know who this "Andrew Kelly" cat is or how he managed to breach the impenetrable walls of Nintendo's headquarters, but none of that matters! People! People! People! There are rupee pillows in the Nintendo offices! Again, there are rupee pillows at the Nintendo offices! Why does this get me so hot and bothered? I don't know! Rupee pillows at Nintendo by Andrew Kelly [Hipstamatic]


There was a practice back in the 90s of companion albums' accompanying the release of certain videogames. These weren't official soundtracks but rather those dreaded "inspired by" collections whose sole purpose was to push s...


If you ever sit and wonder how a simple pick-up-and-play time-waster like Angry Birds could spawn such a large merchandizing machine, take comfort in knowing that it is hardly the first such case. Nope, not by a long shot! On...


The World Record for the most videogame character costumes in one place is only 425 costumes? That can't be right. It is right -- technically. This report says that the judges from the Guinness Book of World Records did the o...

I bought The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D despite not yet owning a 3DS. I just wanted that soundtrack so badly. Does that make me a whore? I think that makes me a whore. Anyway, here's another video to satisfy your Ze...


I know of one way they could have made The Legend of Zelda series better: Corgis! They put a dumb ass horse in their instead, though. The above picture makes up for that mistake. Look, it's a Welsh Corgi dressed up as Epona! ...


Seriously, why even bring up the desert? In these post 9/11 times, that's really not the socially progressive attitude to have.  You racist old Deku Tree!


Happy Rabbits-Shitting-Jellybeans Day, world. I've got an earth-shattering report to break. In 1993, Easter egg dye company PAAS slapped the Mario Paint license on a limited-run Easter egg decorating kit. Aaaaaaand... yeah. B...


It's getting to be that time on Friday where the News-O-Matic 5000 runs out of baby animals and goes into hibernation mode until we can refuel it on Monday morning. So, we'll keep posting the odd story, but someone's going to...


It was Jon Carnage who first introduced me to the the genius of Everything is Terrible. "No hamburgers, no pizza, no movies, no television" is uttered by someone here at Dtoid HQ at least once a day. That's just one example ...


Donkey Kong Country Returns is filled with little in-jokes and nods to Nintendo history. I thought the inclusion of Mr. Game and Watch  was sure to remain my favorite amongst them all, but I think Billy Mitchell's tie mi...


Exciting news day, ain't it? Every August, a sandcastle and sculpture contest is held at Clam Harbour Beach in Nova Scotia, Canada. This year, one team decided to mold the entire range of Nintendo's home console controllers, super-sized. Chill on this Sunday afternoon with these summer gallery photos.

We might not be CEREAL GAMZ JARNALISTS but it appears that real, grown-up journalists quite like us. Or at least an editor for the UK's Sunday Times appears to be a fan. Yes, we're tooting our own horn quite shamelessly, but ...


Capcom had an official Juri cosplayer show off her stuff during a presentation on Super Street Fighter IV. Ono-san talked about the new game while the Juri cosplayer posed and mostly stood around looking pretty. Sadly, no pu...


Zipper Interactive are good people. Not because their PS3 exclusive Massive Action Game is any good (I don't know if it is or isn't yet), but because they chose a great slow news day to post the box art for the aforementioned...


Sony bossface Kaz Hirai has stated that the PlayStation 3 will top 13 million sales in 2010, helped along by a bevy of new features. He believes that the target will be met before the financial year is over in March. Next yea...


The Internet is a wonderful place -- you can find anything on it, including the results of videogame × Fauvism mash-ups. Well, let's back up a bit. Perhaps Arizona is a wonderful place, since it's where artist James Bar...


Ok, before you guys start flaming me, I should get this out of the way: what you're about to read is only tangentially related to videogames. It is, however, very much related to Calvin and Hobbes, so you're going to like it ...


Oh don't be surprised. Well, actually, I am surprised that a nude mod for Zoey took this long. Seriously, we got to see ugly Boomer butt back at the start of the year and we're now just getting nude Zoey. You modders need to ...


Here's a confession: I'm fascinated by game design. As someone with very few creative impulses of his own, I love reading creative people describe how they get work done. Thankfully, Platinum Games boss Hideki Kamiya has been...


I'll be damned. So everyone doesn't stay up into the wee hours of the morning playing games? It's just gamers? And that makes them tired?Not to poo poo on anyone's research or anything, but I could have told you that. But thi...


Check out this real-life Zombie Defense Plant that PopCap sent me. My home is relatively free of zombies, so I didn't have much of a sense of urgency when feeding and watering the thing. I planted the seed, watered it and lef...
