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...

WTF: Is Sony teasing a knitting game?

PlayStation Japan has a teaser countdown page running right now. In its URL we find the Japanese word amimono, which relates to knitting. In the background of the teaser counter you'll find a man in a tuxedo knitting as two gentlemen in sui...

Settle down, crazy people: Red 5's MMO is still on

Red 5 Studios, which is probably more known for being home to a number of ex-Blizzard folks than anything else, is working on a mysterious MMO of some fashion. No, they aren't ready to talk specifics yet, but they do want to reassure us the...

AC: Brotherhood pre-order bon... GAH! GET IT AWAY!

Well, that has got to be one of the creepiest header images ever. I don't even have coulrophobia and I'm creeped the eff out right now. The man in the harlequin costume you see above is GameStop's pre-order bonus for Assassin's Creed: Broth...

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...

We are locked in an eternal food eating contest with 2K

We're not sure how, and we're especially not sure why, but Destructoid and 2K Games are locked in never ending food eating battle. It started with a pie eating contest with P.B. Winterbottom's producer Paul Bellezza, which they had TO CHEAT...

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...

'Violin Hero' string metal music video blows minds

Let me answer your first question: “string metal,” also known as “cello rock” or “cello metal,” is a sub-genre of music that is exactly what you probably think it is -- rock/metal music in which string i...

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...

Army of Two's Salem and Rio see the world

Army of Two: The 40th Day is out on store shelves now, and we've reviewed it. Usually this means the end of the line for trailers and such, but Electronic Arts has one more up its sleeve. Above you can watch Salem and Rio travel around the...

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

Here it is. After two weeks of demystifying a program I've never used before, followed by a two-day fistfight trying to convert the video, I am proud, thrilled, horrified, ashamed and (insert a dozen other emotions here) to bring you the v...

Games on Demand: Trivial Pursuit, Bolt, and FaceBreaker

If games like FaceBreaker, Bolt, and Trivial Pursuit could talk, A) that'd be kind of alarming and B) they would be eternally grateful for Games on Demand. These poor games -- with the exception of maybe Bolt, because kids are silly -- woul...

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...

Capybara's next iPhone project looks very intriguing

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

We haven't heard too much about No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle lately, which had me worried that the game wasn't going to make its January 2010 launch date. Seeing the ESRB rating for the game has put those worries to rest. Unless the...

NSMB Wii release bash: Bucken-Berry and Ala-Gold!

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 ...
