We have ten of these kits to giveaway on Destructoid, with more to be given out on Destructoid.TV's Mash Tactics show and our regular news show on YouTube.com/Dtoid all this week.

Review: Lollipop Chainsaw photo
Review: Lollipop Chainsaw
by Jim Sterling

Lollipop Chainsaw is the kind of game I dread having to review. Not because I necessarily dislike the game, and not because I foresee it becoming the center of yet another trite videogame review controversy. I dread these kinds of game because attempting to describe them is just so difficult. No words will ever truly do them justice, and no description can ever adequately substitute for a firsthand experience. 

Experiencing Lollipop Chainsaw firsthand, however, is something that I believe almost all of you ought to do. Few products are as dedicated to fun as this, bearing as it does the soul of games that many of us gladly tossed quarters into at the local bowling alley, so many years ago. Its similarities to other games are abundant, but as many games as it can be compared to, Lollipop Chainsaw defies a suitable description. It is, at once, like so many titles out there, and so unlike anything else. 

Now I have to try and review the damn thing.

One thing that impressed me about Lollipop Chainsaw that I forgot to mention in my preview was just how great the voice acting was. Today, Warner Bros revealed the voice actors and it's surprising to see just how many big na...

GDC: Going to the arcade of doom in Lollipop Chainsaw

Last year, developer Grasshopper Manufacture showed off a very simple demo of Lollipop Chainsaw at several major gaming conventions. It was a very basic demo in my eyes, one that was more to show the potential of things to co...

Grasshopper's Sine Mora gets first trailer

Grasshopper and Digital Reality have joined forces for Sina Mora, a new shooter coming to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. It features music by Akira Yamaoka, and it looks really nice.  Here's the very first trailer for the game, complete with absolutist philosophical yammering and pretty graphics. Seems like this'll be quite a nice game. What do you reckon?
