I can't even play Demoman this well in my dreams

I've contemplated returning to Team Fortress 2, if only for a few matches, but I'll probably get my ass kicked. After watching this skillful highlight reel from Demoman player Kaidus, I'm sure of it. This guy knows what you're going to do ...

When I saw that a game called Warehouse and Logistics Simulator had been released, I thought "Yeah, makes sense the way the Simulator franchise has been heading." Really, I've just been holding out for Car Park Attendant Simulator more than...

How to steal from Elder Scrolls and not get away with it

Limbo of the Lost is the stuff nightmares are made of (see above) and the stuff of lawsuits, as well. It's a perfect storm of all things terrible that makes a game in the adventure genre -- a genre that even at its worst can only be subpar ...

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...

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...

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

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
