Trends of this Generation: Waggling with motion controls

If current estimations are to be believed, the current console generation will be the longest we’ve seen in the history of gaming. As of right now, just a little less than one-third of my life fits between November 16, 2005 and now. T...

First video of Ironclad's new game Sins of a Dark Age

Ironclad, the folks behind critical darling Sins of a Solar Empire, have been hard at work on what they claim will be a reinvention of the MOBA as we know it. Last year I got a chance to take a look at a few early builds of Sins of a D...

 
 
ME3 DLC tease? photo

Mass Effect 3 downloadable content teased, I think

The fact that BioWare isn't quite done with Mass Effect 3 has been known for some time. Today however, we have our first set of screenshots which include a casino, apparently on the Citadel, and a krogan with what looks to be a futuristic i...

Majora's Mask Remix album set to launch as the world ends

If you've been even tangentially connected with anything resembling internet culture within the past... I dunno several years, then you're probably aware of the fact that there's a decent chunk of society that thinks that the world will end...

Review: Designears

It’s not very often that I get a chance to review something bad. It’s even rarer for me to come across headphones that I just hate. Truth is, most things that you spend $50 or more on are pretty good. Mediocrity can often cost a...

Review: Mass Effect 3: Omega

Omega is the second of the “post-Extended Cut” bits of single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3. The series and the community that has been built up around it have been taken on a wild ride over the past several months. There’s...

Review: Derrick the Deathfin

So… have you ever wanted to be a cardboard shark hellbent on taking down “the man” and all his dirty, environment-destroying machines? Yeah it’s not something I ever really thought about either, but it sou...

What I want from Halo 5 photo

Four things I'd like to see in Halo 5

I haven’t been a fan of Halo for years. By the time we were asked to “finish the fight,” I had grown sick of the monotony. Reach barely managed to hold my interest past the first half-hour. Everywhere I looked, I saw compa...

Check out these gaming blogs and discover happiness

I came across Destructoid back in 2006. At the time, it was barely a blip on the industry's radar. It was just a pack of dedicated bloggers with a rebellious streak. Now, this site has seen at least a dozen of its own graduate and pursue ot...

The Daily Hotness: Halo seems legit

So yeah... Halo 4 is probably pretty good. If you disagree, you're probably wrong because you haven't played. When you have, you are totally entitled to say whatever you want. I'll admit I was incredibly skeptical. I've hated pretty much ev...

Destructoid's 2012 budget desktop guide

Review: Dynaflo Liquid-Armor

Our electronic world, for all of the new abilities it can give us, is infinitely more fragile than it once was. Some modern devices literally shatter when dropped a few feet. Hell, even the more robust devices in our silicon armories can st...

The Daily Hotness: I <3 Pokemon Music

So... earlier today my Pokemon Black and White 2 review went up. I wasn't super kind, but I wasn't super mean either. Anyway... somehow Pokemon music entered the conversation, and that made me want to highlight one of my favorite ...

Review: Pokemon Black and White 2

Pokémon is practically a cultural institution. Every true child of the '90s knows every word to the theme song, lost a lot of their parents' money on the trading card game, and spent many dozens of hours testing playground rumors in ...

The voice of the Twin Cities

While pretty much everyone these days games, it still seems that most of the best events always hit the bigger cities. When I was growing up I longed to visit the Pokemon Center in New York or E3 in Los Angeles. There were no museums, no la...

Super smexy Need For Speed: Most Wanted trailer

The Daily Hotness: Friggin' Pikmin

Pikmin is just fantastic. I mean... we all kinda know it, because it's Pikmin, but my roommate powered through the first one again a couple of days ago, and now he's working on Pikmin 2. It's just... so great. Oh yeah, the Tokyo Game Show i...

Review: Astro A50
