Look I drink...and this results in a lot of apologies. Be it to a Catholic Bishop, AOL, or the shopping cart I "allegedly" molested at Wal-Mart. But, I have never ever apologized with a bag of marijuana cigarettes.  Bewa...

New Southwest ad makes fun of Wiitards

I hate it when our medium leaks into T.V. and movies since it's usually butchered (a good example of what I'm talking about will be on Weekend Destructainment this week). So I always have to cringe when I see our pasttime about to make a ca...

PS2 gets its own wiggle wand

It seems like gaming companies are slowly taking away our right to sit still and motionless while playing our games. The Wii already has us doing every type of silly motion humanly possible, and even the PS3 sometimes has us flicking our co...

Shameless Wiimote rip-off for the Walmart win

Took them long enough, didn't it? After months of waiting, we finally have some cheap, terrible Wiimote knock-off on the shelves of Walmart, in the form of four LCD sports 'games' in an inconvenient Wiimote-shaped case. For seven bucks, you...

A glimpse into madness: The best of Tom Tommy

In my short tenure at Destructoid, I've done a lot of things I never thought I would. I've eaten cocktail sausages with games companies, I've been stranded in the Hilton Hotel with Pure Pwnage and angry Norwegians. I've telephoned Uwe Boll ...

Soften the blow with NERF Wii Remote Sleeves

The third-party accessory makers have been pitching mostly unnecessary add-ons for our game consoles and related devices for a some time now. This is the first controller accessory that we've seen in a long time that actually could show som...

Wiimbeldon: Barcade, Beers, and Bears! Oh My!

Part hipster costume party, part casual Wii-gamer, and part "Well, I don't really want to fit into either of those other two categories, so I suppose I'll just drink a lot of beer instead" would all aptly describe the fir...

Best Buy slashes PS3 game prices, riot ensues

Man. Remember when people actually cared that much about the PS3? Those were the days. Although when I interviewed several campers on launch night, most of them were planning to turn around and sell it, and one girl who had camped out in li...
