Any other third-party characters coming to Brawl?

If I recall correctly, Sakurai said there would be a max of three third-party characters in Brawl since he wanted to keep the focus on Nintendo. We already have two characters that are pretty epic...will there be a third? Personally, I'm ...

 
 
 

Devil May Cry 4 REQUIRES a 5GB installation.

Let me just put it out there, I'm a big fan of the 360 and not of the PS3. Now that we've gotten that out of the way I still like to discuss the pros and cons each system has with as little bias as possible. No matter which system you'r...

 
 
 

Downloadable content coming to the Nintendo DS.

According to The New York Times, the DS will be getting downloadable content via the Wii. The article is mostly just fluff about sales numbers, the rise of the DS, basic functionality that we all know, etc. I was aware that we were goin...

 
 
 

An updated Metal Slug 3 coming to XBLA.

I'm a huge fan of XBLA since the games are cheap, fun, beautiful, and I can buy them at midnight while sitting on my couch naked. Can anything beat that? I think not. While I'm getting kind of burnt on Metal Slug...this really appeals to...

 
 
 

FNF - Call of Duty 4 (360)

OK guys cut me a little slack here...I played the CoD4 beta and absolutely loved it but I didn't pick the game up until last weekend. Normally I'm on my PC playing TF2 but I'm kind of burnt and I want to get it on the CoD4 action. Do we h...

 
 
 

Smash Bros. Dojo will be taking a holiday break.

I'm not sure when this was posted but I just noticed it. The daily updates for Smash Bros. will be on a temporary hiatus as of right now. At least I'll be able to go to bed earlier instead of waiting for these things every night... From ...

 
 
 

The next Zelda game will be 2D/3D/cel-shaded.

Remember folks, you heard it here first. I guess Surfer Girl was actually correct in a way when she stated this about the new Street Fighter. Street Fighter IV has 3D graphics, but the gameplay is 2D, while the graphics are somewhat cel-s...

 
 
 

I like really gay music.

I've always been into uplifting/epic/anthem trance but I have a soft spot for the pop stuff as well... I remember listening to the Vengaboys a ton back in the day while I was still in school with my friends...good times. I just now went t...

 
 
 
 
 

Real men use items. (Smash Bros.)

I've always been an item user in Smash Bros., it makes the game way more fun. I hate people who bitch about always turning items off so things are "balanced". They also love banning levels. Fuck that, real men adapt to the situation as i...

 
 
 

Questioning Leigh Alexander's Fire Emblem review.

Here at Destructoid they like to talk about paying more attention to the text rather than just the final score of a review. Well I did, and I have a bigger problem with the text than the score. While I find the game is MUCH better than a ...

 
 
 
 
 

Microsoft had sex with me against my will.

That is also known as being RAPED. I just tracked my 360 (this is the SECOND one that has died on me) to find out it was shipped 3-Day Select. Fantastic, I should have it Thursday! Oh wait, that is Thanks-fucking-giving. UPS doesn't wor...

 
 
 
 
 

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: ShadowXOR

I'm going to go ahead and take a moment to introduce myself. I just started posting on the community blogs out of nowhere, but what good does that do anyone? Who's the man behind the avatar? I recently introduced myself on the forums s...

 
 
 

The appeal of Destructoid's community blogs

I'm not sure why everyone else is here, but I'm not one to write blogs usually. I of course enjoy Destructoid because it's a gaming news site that isn't afraid to make dirty jokes. It has a personality and isn't just bland writing. But w...

 
 
 

HL2: Episode Two left me disturbed (SPOILERS)

Episode Two was a fantastic game all around. It set Episode Three up perfectly. A few plot points have been wrapped up, we're going to be journeying to a new location, so much to be excited about. Yet the ending was extremely disturbing....

 
 
 

Major omission in HL2: Episode Two (SPOILERS)

Episode Two is amazing in virtually every way. I just completed it a few hours ago and couldn't be more pleased. If you haven't picked up the Orange Box yet, do it NOW. However there was one GLARING omission...where the hell was Barney? ...

 
 
 

Why 28 Weeks Later is a horrible movie (SPOILERS)

I just can't do this thread without spoilers, because there was so much wrong with this movie. I'm SHOCKED at the positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, from both critics and users. This movie is a steaming pile of horrid shit. Note that I t...

 
 

About ShadowXORone of us since 11:48 PM on 12.26.2006

I've never really filled out the section that asks me to describe myself, but I'm making an exception here because Destructoid is so awesome, and the column on the right looks so damn empty without something here. I'm just another guy on the internet who plays lots of games while trying to make something of myself.
