Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors

I've never really paid attention to Dynasty Warriors, as Chinese history usually isn't something that grabs my attention. Besides, I didn't think that I was missing much more than a whole lot of button mashing. Then Namco Ban...

Review: Unchained Blades

I'm not the biggest RPG nut, but over my last decade of gaming, I have appreciated most of the RPGs I've played. After starting on Pokemon, I've played a Final Fantasy or two, and even delved into Persona....

Preview: Hatsune Miku Project DIVA F has precision issues

Here's a quick lesson on Japanese pop culture: Yamaha sells a software called Vocaloid, which provides the digitized voice of a singer and allows users to incorporate it into their own music productions. Each singer is repres...

Preview: Killing in motion in Splinter Cell: Blacklist

I've never been that big a fan of Splinter Cell, or at least the last-gen games that were clearly about stealth. There's nothing wrong with stealth, but a demo of the first game never clicked with me, so it was always a serie...

Preview: Assassin's Creed III Liberation is the real deal

As far as I'm concerned, there hasn't really been a portable Assassin's Creed worth playing. Despite the release of three story-based handheld games -- only one less than the console releases -- they have contributed nothing ...

Impressions: Rabbids Land is the Wii U's Mario Party

I remember picking up the first Rayman Raving Rabbids game when the Wii launched in 2006. While I had planned on buying Red Steel alongside Twilight Princess (a purchase mandated by Nintendo fan law), a negative early-mo...

E3: Guacamelee! on Vita is bueno, but needs tweaking

For the past two months, I've been hearing good things about Guacamelee!, a colorful, luchador-themed Metroidvania game from DrinkBox Studios. Saying "Metroidvania" is usually good enough for me to be interested, but adding i...

E3: Jonathan Holmes commentates on the Nintendo show

You've watched the Nintendo press conference. You've seen all the latest news from Nintendo all day long. You've learned our opinions of the press conferences. You've heard how adorable the new rock Pikmin are. But have you ...

E3: Talking to Destructoid editors about Nintendo

There was tons of news coming out of Nintendo's press conference. Unsurprisingly, most was about the Wii U. We saw a new Pikmin, the reveal of Nintendo Land, and proof that Nintendo is courting third parties. But for some pe...

E3: Ubisoft adds Spider-Man, Wolverine to Avengers game

The Avengers came out in theaters earlier this month, and if you haven't heard, it's pretty great. Ubisoft is still working on the movie tie-in game, though, which they premiered at their press conference today. Titled Marvel...

There's a hot new trailer for Dust 514, the upcoming free MMO FPS for PS3 by CCP. (OMG!) Watch as people get attacked by tanks before taking revenge with an orbital strike from massive spaceships. You can still sign up ...

E3: Gears of War: Judgment looks like more bloody fun

I promised myself that I wouldn't get excited for a new Gears of War game after the third installment wrapped things up. Maybe a game about the Pendulum Wars would be cool, but I thought I was pretty much done with fighting ...

Sega brings Monster World IV to XBLA in a bundle

Sega and Westone's Wonder Boy series was really strange when it came to naming conventions. Wonder Boy started visiting Monster Land and Monster World, and before you know it, Sega put out a Genesis game with the&nb...

Preview: Learn to play guitar with BandFuse: Rock Legends

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I was invited to see a new, previously unannounced music game. Internet hyperbole states that music games, or rather rhythm games involving guitars, are dead, killed by over-satura...

Atlus confirms Persona 4 Arena for US release this summer

[Update: We've added hot new screenshots to our gallery, fresh from Atlus.] We figured this might be what Atlus was teasing a few days ago, and it feels so good to be right. Atlus just sent out an email to the Atlus...

Listen to the intro track for Silent Hill: Downpour

It's safe to say that a major part of the atmosphere in the original Silent Hill games was the soundtrack by Akira Yamaoka. Any new music in the series will inevitably be compared to his work, which is almost unfair, since th...
