As if gold farming couldn't get any worse, now it funds pederasty

As an amateur Internet historian and a professional whatever-I-do-here, most of my skills are completely underwhelming. As often as I tell women in bars that I'm really very hilarious (on the Internet), few seem to offer me i...

Destructoid's games of the week for 11/18/2007: Mixed messages edition!

Guys, I'd love to spend an hour crafting a deep, engaging story about why my hair hurts this week, but honestly I'm too absorbed in Assassin's Creed to give this whole thing much thought. One of the true joys of a gig like th...

Game Center CX: the coolest game I hadn't heard about until yesterday

Ever since it was revealed to me (yesterday), Game Center CX: Arino's Challenge has become my own personal video game equivalent of the Mo-dettes: absolutely no one's heard of it, it's amazing and bringing it up in casual con...

Live-action Assassin's Creed: They couldn't find a koala to play with?

Assassin's Creed has been a debacle for days now. Between the less-than-stellar response and the childish vagina worship surrounding its producer, one gets the feeling that Ubisoft would rather just forget about the game an...

Destructoid Review: Call of Duty 4

The first two Call of Duty games were widely praised as the next step in the first-person shooter genre. They had bombastic action sequences, gripping storylines and enough Nazi-bashing to make George Patton squeal like a you...

Destructoid Review: Wordjong

Sometimes a game comes along that utterly blows your mind and leaves you on the side of the road holding your panties in one hand, and a crumpled $20 bill in the other. You know it's just a one night stand, but still you wait...

Destructoid's games of the week for 11/11/2007: I love egg, hate kids edition!

After last night's drinking/Guitar-Heroing/Ground-Kontrolling escapades, I have absolutely no energy to entertain you people. So in my stead, I'm going to rely on those kindly Koreans to do it for me. After showing this video...

Gaming periphery as filler: videogame look-alikes

Hollywood steals ideas constantly, authors have been lifting plotlines for millennia, and Glengarry Glen Ross was directly stolen from a dream I once I had via David Mamet's brain-draining dark magic. Since every other creati...

Mass Effect metaporn: Strip clubs in the future will still be poorly lit

The above clip demonstrates Mass Effect's stunning slutty-aliens-designed-to-pander-to-teens rendering system. Then again, maybe we're being too cynical. After all, it would be unrealistic to think the future wouldn't also ...

Chavez fears Mercenaries 2 as imperialist psyops ... somewhere, an eagle smiles
