Intel: Look for an update on Project Offset in 2010

Before we jump into this, let me catch you up to speed. It's my job to obsess over these sorts of factoids, and even I had forgotten about some of Project Offset's history. Every time the first-person fantasy game is shown in any capacity, ...

The biggest UT 2004 explosion you'll see today

Disclaimer: this isn't nearly as good as the Crysis "Raining Men" video, or most of the other "spawn a bunch of objects, it'll be funny" CryEngine 2 videos, for that matter. However, it is certainly worth watching anyway...

David Jaffe to 'shut the f**k up' for six months

Destructoid is no stranger to the words flying out of David Jaffe's mouth. In fact those words have flown directly at us. In short (if two sentences are too long for you), David Jaffe has a big mouth and he likes to run it. However, it can ...
