O Bungie, Betrayer of your Brothers and Sisters in Development

Jeez, Bungie. Releasing Halo 3 and muscling out the other worthy releases of September 25th without even a thought as to the lives you're ruining and the families you're destroying. Good thing Mega64 created a dramatic re-ena...

Destructoid Review: Halo 3

If I may beat a cliché firmly into the dirt just a few inches deeper, Halo 3 is a game that needs no introduction. I mean that literally. If you’re not decked out in your homemade MJOLNIR armor lovingly crafted...

Team Fortress 2 impressions

When I was young, I had dreams of becoming a doctor, fostered as dreams tend to be by the games I played. Had I taken that long and expensive road through med school, I would have invariably been asked what prompted my pursui...

Podtoid 32: Fat Japanese Girls edition

Evening, kittens. We’re coming up on a near year of Podtoid, and to celebrate this milestone the higher-ups thought that it’d be best if I destroyed the outfit as soon as possible, and therefore positioned me as h...

Your monthly Aquaria reminder: seven minutes of the game

Right, Aquaria. We're still waiting patiently for the release of this game, and if you're not along with us, you should just get off this short bus at the next stop. In this latest footage of the game provided by Bit-Blot, we...

Podtoid 32: Bloody Coup

Great civilizations often crumble at the height of their decadence. Last week on Podtoid 31, Nex and I were drizzling chocolate on bundles of hundred dollar bills and shooting them out of a flaming cannon -- it should come as...

First Halo 3 copies in the wild

What's this? Linde's posting not one, but two stories 'bout Halo in a single afternoon? Truth is, the real Linde was brutally slain by one Dick "I Hate Fatties" McVengeance weeks ago. I am his replacement, the Linde...

Halo 3 diorama brings ruin to editor's cynical hatred of game ads

As a means of breaking up our day-long marathon Halo 3 campaign experience earlier this week, the good people at Bungie brought us sandwiches and showed off a series of ads for the forthcoming release. Honestly, I was kind...

Nintendo chief Iwata and designer Itoi talk shop over dinner

Been awhile, kids -- it's your favorite Linde, freshly returned from the barbaric wastes of Hungary, where goose liver serves as both key component to every meal and a common substitute for drinking water. Them folks are craz...

Starmen.net assaults Nintendo of America with envelopes, books

You guys already know the score -- when there's movin' and shakin' in the way of EarthBound or Mother news, I'm usually the nerd on call to give you the skinny. And since almost every ounce of movin' and/or shakin' these days...

Universe at War: Earth Assault hands-on impressions

I'd like to think that one of the most impressive tests of a game is the verdict rendered by a player who isn't necessarily an enthusiast of that particular genre. It's certainly not an opinion that you'd necessarily stack ab...

Destructoid review: BioShock

I had almost lost hope. Almost. You know what article I've had sitting in my queue for almost two months? It's called "Requiem for the Single Player Campaign", and it was gonna be good ol' Linde up on his soap box complaining...

Bargain Bin Laden #22: Psychonauts

Psychonauts. Yeah, I know -- sort of like Beyond Good and Evil, one of those games that needs no introduction, that almost hourly enjoys some sort of running of the mouth by one journalist or another. I'm introducing it as su...

Pew! Pew! Preview!: Guild Wars: Eye of the North

Yesterday, I had an opportunity that comes once, maybe twice in a lifetime -- the chance to rekindle an old flame. No, not Nick Chester, we're broken up for good, you hear me? You only have to leave this editor at the altar o...

In a world where game trailers are damn near identical...

As the years go on I'd like to think we've been so exposed to horrible cliche that we don't really notice it anymore, but as the intrepid innanet detectives over at NeoGAF found, it's starting to become quite absurd. See that...

Painkiller next in line for movie adaptation

It's becoming such a common occurrence that I can't even muster the strength to object -- Painkiller, developed by Polish studio People Can Fly, will be the next game on the list of blockbuster-hopeful adaptations of video ga...

Weekly Geek's Furniss cannibalizes game boxes for the sake of art

Chris Furniss is a monster. You might know him as a frequent guest on Podtoid, friend of the site and lord and master of the Weekly Geek Show, but I'm about to introduce to you a darker side of Furniss, a side that -- God hel...

Bargain Bin Laden #20: Gunstar Super Heroes

Today, BBL rolls up on the big two-oh. I was planning on some grand gesture to celebrate, like some sort of Destructoid team photo where we're all fighting each other while riding bears or something, but I hear that's illegal...

Aquaria: now on Linux!

I refuse to let this game sink out of your collective consciousness. Before I'm through and the game is actually released, I intend to have all of you beating down doors like the bloodthirsty dead demanding the game's release...

New Castle Crashers video featuring epic boss battle

While Bomberman Live still has the Destructoid crew gripped firmly in its meathooks, it's safe to say that Castle Crashers looks like the Next Big Thing on XBLA. In this video from Comic-Con, we get to see an entire boss batt...

Lost: The Game debut trailer from Comic-Con

 Ah, Lost. You provided many a sleepless night while I sat up trying to work out the mystery, figure out the secrets of the islands and the numbers, and find hot pixxx of that lady what plays Kate. Newly introduced at Co...

ScrewAttack ranks top ten Mario games, SMB3 named top of the heap

In their latest Top 10, ScrewAttack chalked up their list of the top 10 Mario titles -- no easy feat, considering Mario's colossal 200+ game appearances. One caveat, though: to be considered for zee list, the player has t...

Video Game Voters Network presents: "The Fight For Video Games"

I'm going to take the easy route here and just assume that this is what it looks like when the ESA and the VGVN try to make me laugh, because this is hilarious. While I'm most certainly in support of the cause, I do...

Condemned 2 toned down in wake of Manhunt ban

The uprising kicked up in by the de facto banning of Manhunt 2 had some folks scratching their heads. They wondered: why all the ruckus over Manhunt? The original wasn't all that great, after all. Though I count myself am...

Destructoid Review: Bomberman Live

E3 2007 Post-Mortem: Niero and Linde on the new E3

At this year's E3, there was one big question exchanged between journalists, industry folk, and pretty much everybody present: do you like the new E3? How different is it? Where the hell are all the scantily-clad booth ba...

E3 2007: Destructoid interviews Peter Moore

Oh, Peter Moore -- you titan of industry, you icon, you had to up and leave us, didn't you? And just hours before I planned on publishing this interview. While latching onto a new face as the public persona for Xbox and G...
