These guys are nuts: The naming of Sin and Punishment

Sin & Punishment is easily in my top five favorite N64 games. Scary thing is, it almost didn't make it to the US. Thanks to the magic of the Wii's Virtual Console, the game finally left Japan back in 2007. Thanks to the game's success o...   read

Creepy iPod brings erasers, gnomes, from Telltale Games

On Thursday, I got a weird text from Hamza. It said, "You've gotten a package in the mail". Now, unlike most of the Dtoid SF office staff, I don't live in Casa de Destructoid, so I was a little wary of what could be inside. So random! Think...   read

Muscle March launch trailer imitates greatness

I get a real "Mr. Sparkle" vibe from this video, and it's not necessarily a good thing. Maybe that's just because I'm just getting into Muscle March right now after months of anticipation, but I'm just not ready to see it lampooned in this...   read

Muscle March coming this Monday for just five bucks

Did you know that the initial trailer for Muscle March was one of the most viewed video posts on Destructoid in 2009? It got nearly half a million hits last year. Not bad for a game we all thought would never leave Japan. In just a few day...   read

Modern Warfare 2 has a homophobic Easter egg!?

Oh Infinity Ward, you so silly! Not content to cook up a big gay sh*tstorm with its notorious Modern Warfare 2 F.A.G.S commercial, it seems that Infinity Ward had to slip some homononsensical banter into the game itself. Yes, that's Modern...   read

The return of the F**khead: No More Heroes 2 ESRB listing

This sounds necessary: A videogame based on The Host 2

A videogame adaptation of The Host would have turned out pretty bad, I imagine, but there's no way it could (theoretically) top the upcoming first-person shooter based upon The Host 2. Now I know Jonathan recently listed some horror movies ...   read
