Growing up playing side-scrolling action games like Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Another World has cemented my love of the genre, so any time I get the chance to play another title in that vein, I jump at the chance. Enter Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken.
Hardboiled Chicken is a port of the original PC game, Rocketbirds: Revolution!, with some upgrades for the PlayStation 3, including new chapters, cutscenes and a co-op mode. The original game was quite the success, and now the team at Ratloop Asia has decided to try their hand at a different platform.
There is very little left to be said about Nyan Cat, except that it's my profound disappointment to inform you that Konami did not, in fact, release a licensed Nyan game in 1988. Not only would Nyan Cat vs. Tac ...
There's a new Champion Jockey game coming from Tecmo Koei. It will be out for the Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and all three versions will make use of the motion controls offered by each console. As you can see in the vid...
A lot of times, girls don't have the opportunity to buy licensed t-shirts in their own sizes, having to make do with guys' sizes. Luckily for them, this Techno Kitten Adventure shirt is available only in girls' sizes. You can...
A week before E3, I posted a predictions post that featured the adorable (and adoptable!) animals of the Burbank Animal Shelter making predictions about what they thought would happen at this year’s mammoth industry event. (You can read the full article right here to see the “scientific” techniques I used to make these predictions.)
The entire process was highly emotional, unbelievably satisfying, and one of the greatest experiences of my entire life. In fact, every time I go back and read the original predictions article I still get a little teary-eyed. I fell in love with all of those amazing animals and can’t wait to visit them again soon. ACTUALLY I AM GOING TO GO RIGHT AFTER FINISHING THIS!
But now that E3 is over, how did the puppies (and kittens!) do? Did they make accurate predictions? Which animal was the most accurate? And was my ultimate goal in doing this experiment reached? Did any of these wonderful, beautiful animals get adopted?
Last night at the 20th anniversary Sonic party (an event that was as amazing as it was completely, wonderfully surreal), the SEGA reps were handing out big, blue Sonic the Hedgehog hats.
This morning, I decided to put one on my dog Luna.
She was so annoyed ... but so adorable.
This is the most important E3 article I have ever written.
Activision is formally announcing their collaboration with Sega Toys, called Wappy Dog. We've heard a bit about it before, but now we have the full details on this terribly named robo mutt.

So this year I decided to do something that could potentially give back.
With the help of the extraordinary people at the Burbank Animal Shelter, I decided to visit one of the most celebrated shelters in Los Angeles and have all the puppies (and a few other surprise animals!) make our E3 2011 predictions.
Equipped with a +7 love of dogs and all the incredible questions that you, the community, provided, I went into the animal shelter with two goals: To make predictions proving that anyone (even cute puppies!) can make just as accurate E3 predictions as the highly-paid industry analysts, and, most importantly, to try to get as many of these animals adopted as possible.
I knew this would be a fun, heartfelt experiment ... but I had no idea it would kind of change my life.
Is there a PETA for mythological creatures? I'm wondering if there should be after checking out what happens to unfortunate griffons in Dragon's Dogma.
These new screens show a griffon getting utterly destroyed in the n...
I was so excited about PS3 title Tokyo Jungle when I played it at last year's Tokyo Game Show. Since then we've heard next to nothing about the strange and hilarious animal survival title. I've cried a few times.
The latest F...
Over on the PlayStation Blog, it has been announced that EyePet & Friends is currently being developed for a 2011 release on the PlayStation 3. New features for the game will include support for PlayStation Move and ...
When the Nintendo DS game nintendogs was first released, it became an easy target for some gamers. The dog ownership simulation title was easy to make fun of, with some saying that it wasn't really much of a game at all. Eyebrows raised when popular Japanese gaming publication Famitsu gave the title a perfect score. I even remember some dedicated Nintendo fans questioning the title.
But, just like with a real puppy, gamers slowly grew to love nintendogs. The title slowly caught on and has since become one of Nintendo's top first-party franchises. If you combine the various versions of the first game, Nintendo is going on 22 million copies of nintendogs sold. The lesson here? Never underestimate the power of puppies.
Nintendo lets the dogs out once more, and now adds cats for the ultimate pet sim. More realistic and expressive pets, more interactivity and -- of course -- 3D support. It's even harder to resist than before. I mean, just look at those little puppy eyes!
Fellow Destructoid editor Tony Ponce and I are in love with recent Nintendo DS game Ghost Trick. Like, obsessed. It is easily one of our favorite games of the year.
The other day, we were talking about how great the game is over a rather enthusiastic e-mail thread. We both shared our favorite moments; we both laughed about how great all the characters are. And then, as two guys sometimes do, we completely bonded over how much we adore one character in particular: a Pomeranian named Missile.
For people that have played the game, I can only assume you are excitedly nodding your head in agreement. And for those of you who have not yet played Ghost Trick ... MY GOD GRAB A COPY RIGHT NOW SO YOU CAN EXPERIENCE THE MAJESTY THAT IS MISSILE! Seriously. He will change your life.
Since we figured sharing such unbridled enthusiasm is never a bad thing, hit the jump to view our e-mail correspondence. Two dudes talking about how much they love a cute videogame puppy. It doesn’t get any manlier than this.
The Augmented Reality functionality of the 3DS was kind of lost on me until I unlocked it in Nintendogs + Cats. Now I'm able to make my almost-real tri-colored Pembroke Welsh Corgi appear in my environment. And with the added...
I wish I could have thought up the name in the headline, but there's actually already a blog called F*ck Yeah Corgi. Fantastic site. That and Obsessive Corgi Disorder (corgiaddict.com) are regular reads for me. These and s...
I didn't think much of the box for my copy of Nintendogs + Cats for the newly released Nintendo 3DS. I got the Toy Poodle & New Friends release and I feel it was a waste that they didn't call it Beautiful Corgi Pu...
