Slavery the Game is probably not real, but... wow

[Update: There's a phone number on the site, 1-502-383-1956, that connects you to a Google Voice line. Yeah, this is starting to sound like some garage developer's having a few jollies.] A website with a teaser trailer for something called...

Reminder: Anthony Burch still trying to save the world

Back in November, I told you about "Anthony Saves the World," an online web series by Mikey Neuman and Anthony Burch of Gearbox Software. (Yes, that's the same "Reverend" Anthony Burch whose face used to be plastered all over Destructoid.) ...

TGS: Tokyo Jungle is strange and hilarious

One of the titles I was most excited to play was the recently announced PS3 game Tokyo Jungle. The concept seemed so funny to me when I first heard about it -- it's animals on the loose in Tokyo, fighting for survival. Finally getting to pl...

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...

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...

Analyzing No More Heroes 2, part 2: The bosses, part 2

[These posts on No More Heroes 2 are purely speculation. I have no idea what the team at Grasshopper Manufacture intended for the game to mean; I can only speak to what I've taken away from it, so if you don't enjoy potentially bullsh*t int...

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...

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...

The Journalism Show: Episode 01

Games on Demand: Trivial Pursuit, Bolt, and FaceBreaker
