Resident Evil HD causes night terrors, sandwiches

I had a real weird night with Resident Evil HD. It's continuing as I look for screens to use as thumbnail images and stumble upon nude, pregnant Jill mods for Resident Evil 4. And here I thought I was making questionable use of my time.

It looks like Indigo Prophecy is getting the remastered treatment

Indigo Prophecy is the only David Cage game I really liked. While it got ridiculous with the zombie-sex and Dragon Ball Z third act, I loved it all the same, and the tension of that first bathroom scene was palpable. Eve...

My first four hours with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

It's an exciting time to be into role-playing games. With the release of heavy hitters such as Dragon Age: Inquisition, Dark Souls II, Divinity: Original Sin, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Wasteland 2 in recent years, the ...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds soundtrack comes to Club Nintendo Europe

Club Nintendo is closing. A new loyalty program will be coming later this year, but I really enjoyed my time with it. The Club isn't completely dead yet though, especially in the case of the European version. The service rece...

Outfit swap DLC for Smash Bros. would make a lot of money

[Image by Pitarou] The amiibo craze doesn't seem to have died down yet. My guess is that once Nintendo has released 50 different figures, amiibo fans will start to look at all the fun-but-relatively-worthless figures they've ...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's new downloadable character is out this Tuesday

The inaugural PAX South is wrapping up today, and Gearbox's panel just ended. We heard about the plans with Homeworld earlier, but the studio's cash cow for the past several years has been the Borderlands series, so of course...

Review: Gravity Ghost photo
Review: Gravity Ghost
by Darren Nakamura

[Disclosure: Ashly Burch, one of the voice actors for Gravity Ghost, previously created video content for Destructoid. As always, no relationships, personal or professional, were factored into the review.]

Traditional ghost lore states that spirits remain in the physical realm when they have unfinished business. That trope applies to Gravity Ghost's protagonist Iona. Less common are ghost stories about soaring between tiny planetoids to collect stars. So that's new.

It has been described in Internet shorthand as "like a 2D Super Mario Galaxy," but past the physics of elliptical planetary motion there is not a lot of similarity. Where Mario keeps on his toes to avoid traps and enemies, Iona's journey is a more zen-like experience of exploration and self-discovery. Gravity Ghost touches on some more serious themes and is more than just a platformer with unusual physics.

You might be tempted to call Ronin 'Kill Bill: the Videogame' photo
You might be tempted to call Ronin 'Kill Bill: the Videogame'
by Brett Makedonski

Devolver Digital has a penchant for picking up clever game jam submissions and giving them a chance to grow into fully-realized titles. Titan Souls is a fine example, and it would have never had any exposure outside of the tiniest of niche audiences; now, it's gotten enough funding and press that many eagerly await it.

One of the publisher's most recent pick-ups certainly has the moxie to follow the same path. Ronin is a smart, cerebral game -- one that requires care more than stick skills. A cursory glance invites comparisons to Gunpoint, but that'd be selling it short. Ronin melds real-time and turn-based play, a combination that results in an action puzzler of sorts, but with more emphasis on the latter than the former.

The Bard's Tale IV cometh

I'm an older gamer. You know how I know this? Because when I see things like The Bard's Tale IV is coming out, my nostalgia glands kick into high gear and I resemble a wired Johnny Depp from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Samus and Sagat unbox Guilty Gear X3d -SIGN- Limited Edition

Some people say GG is the best thing in gaming today. Others say it's all flash and no substance, existing to drawing attention to itself and nothing more. No, I'm not talking about that GG. I'm talking about Guilty Gear, th...
