http://www.destructoid.com/sega-pass-website-hacked-1-290-755-customers-risked-204122.phtml Most critics agree: Duke Nukem Forever sucks. After more than 10 years of waiting, it ain't all that. Jim Sterling reviewed it for Destructoid and called it a "miserable, lifeless, grotesque little game." But who listens to critics? They obviously don't know what they're talking about. I mean, they only play and see hundreds of videogames a year, so what do they know? Also, they're all biased and some are even fat.
http://www.destructoid.com/black-ops-limited-edition-landing-with-first-strike-dlc-204309.phtml Earlier today, Destructoid user mrandydixon let us know that GameStop was listing a mysterious Call of Duty: Black Ops Limited Edition with DLC. We later noticed the game being listed on Best Buy, including the box art shown in the image above. Now Activision has confirmed with us that it's real, and that it's hitting North American retailers on June 28. The $59.99 game will include a redemption code for Black Ops' first downloadable content, "First Strike," which normally would cost gamers $15. It will be available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. (Nick Chester)

http://www.destructoid.com/sonic-generations-demo-sonic-bundle-arriving-tomorrow-204346.phtml Tomorrow is Sonic the Hedgehog's 20th anniversary, and SEGA is celebrating by releasing a demo for Sonic Generations. You'll get to have a crack at a "classic" platforming Sonic level and a "modern" level, all in stunning 3D for those that have enabled televisions. (Jim Sterling)
http://www.destructoid.com/review-shadows-of-the-damned-204206.phtml A demon with a goat's head is riding a horse that defecates pure darkness. Then the demon eats the horse's heart, grows to the size of a ten-story building, eats the rest of the horse and proceeds to urinate more darkness into a gigantic fountain. (Jim Sterling)

Well, you dirty little boy, why not combine your idleness and the word of Christ with Vatican Wars -- a hot new social game in which you can become Pope! (Jim Sterling)
