Two new No More Heroes clips (sponsored by TAMPAX Pearl)

The clips we've seen in the past from Suda51's No More Heroes have all been tiny snippets rife with hip surreality and stylized everything, but they haven't really shown us much of the game. The denizens of the 'net are happy to get excit...   read

Fillerween 2007: Crescent Blue will make kids start reading again

Maybe it's the glee over playing in the snow all day like some kind of oversized, clumsy 6-year-old, maybe it's the cranberry and vodka cocktails I've been drinking, or maybe it's the fact that without overweight industry folk getting can...   read

Little Miss Gamer: StarTropics: I TOO hate gender roles!

The Internet is too cynical.Sure, that's as ironic as my saying the Internet relies too heavily on obtuse references to the key figures of the second World War, but any of you disagreeing with me will only further prove my point. So the...   read

Tekken 6 intro trailer: things were never this bad with the Jaguarador

Thanks to Gametrailers user andyelmo, we bring you the above: the arcade trailer for Namco's Tekken 6. Normally this is the point at which I'd gush about how excited I am to get another Tekken, but wow, that trailer was just SO underwhelmi...   read

Three new PS3 TV spots: Sony's getting better about this sort of thing

Sony has a long, storied history with TV ads for this generation of gaming hardware. From the creepy to the annoying to the obviously-aimed-at-slow-children, they've been running the gamut of misfires in trying to promote their consoles.R...   read

Impressive study claims violent media worse than everything but smoking

Normally I'd be the first to point out the flaws in any scientific study purporting a real link between violent media and real-world violence, but this report on Yahoo News -- assuming it's accurate -- doesn't seem to have any flaws. Accord...   read

All Hands On Rock Band: Carrie Brownstein's Slate review

Sleater-Kinney is sort of an institution in my part of the world. See, they began in this tiny Northwest microculture and since then have gone on to the sort of bizarre limbo of indie groups where they're simultaneously unknown and widely b...   read

Penny Arcade, IGN enter verbal kumite, provide idiotic filler for Ol' Nexy

There's nothing I like more than kinky sex in dangeous situations, like fellatio in a lion's cage or bondage play with jars of scorpions and firecrackers. Since that has nothing to do with this story though, let's assume I said "there'...   read

Deus Ex 3 debut trailer: this is what prostitution tastes like

The original Deus Ex is right at the top of my list of all-time favorite games. It occupies a spot sandwiched between Fallout 2 and the Age of Empires series, so saying I'm a fan of Warren Spector's baby is an understatement on par with s...   read

Breasts are awesome: uncut Need for Speed: ProStreet promo proves as much

Normally I'm really highbrow. I wear a smoking jacket at entirely inappropriate times, fill my pipe with the shredded remains of a Jane Eyre first edition and often refer to cars as "horseless cars." However, neither that trademar...   read

Destructoid's games of the week for 11/25/2007: Is this a cop out edition?

It's a video. Watch it.Why?First, because I'm utterly fascinated with both foreign girls AND spunky indie girls; Superbus lead Jennifer Ayache is the epitome of everything I love about women, and as soon as I'm done with this Cherry Coke,...   read

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 immediate sex or...   read

Halo novel becomes NYT best seller, just like my novel Jurassic Park

There's been a lot of petty sniping towards Halo from both the anti-Microsoft crowd and the contrarian, anti-mainstream crowd ever since the pre-release hype for Halo 3 began building up, but absolutely no one, regardless of how tightly the...   read

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 this is that inst...   read
