Feast your arse on the new trailer for Golden Axe: Beast Rider

I am still torn on this one. While my love for generic action games is well known (I don't care for faux-innovation, just give me a sword and some monsters), there's something about the brawler style action game I truly miss,...

Sega Gamer's Day '08: Golden Axe: Beast Rider screens

All went a bit quiet on the Golden Axe front, but we now have a selection of new screens from its current-gen revitalization, Golden Axe: Beast Rider. The concept is simple -- take the monster spurring fun of the classic Gold...

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition gets pushed back

As with most delays, it makes us sad that we don't get to play the game sooner, but it's almost always worth the wait to play a more polished and complete version of the title in question. With The Witcher, however, that isn'...

This week's VC releases: Animal pornography edition

While Chester sits in his hot tub of money and Wii points, he's left the task of this week's Virtual Console updates to me. And what a week it is to be covering this set of releases. Nintendo's been really excited about what'...

Warning: playing the Wii may end up in bestial rape

It's very easy to get excited playing the Wii. With everything going on, you sometimes feel like you're in the action -- I know I feel that way when I'm playing Red Steel. Well, sometimes people can get hurt from this. Let's...

New Golden Axe = Lair? Lack of playable dwarf = FAIL, at any rate

As far as I'm concerned, it's hard to go wrong with a Golden Axe remake. Just give me a dwarf and a shedload of skeletons to fight and I'm happy. Of course, this is the games industry, and nobody ever does the right thing whe...

Destructoid Reviews: The Official Guide
by Aaron Linde

There's been a general consensus among Destructoid staff and readership alike that clarification of our reviews process and metrics has been sorely needed for some time, and it's something that I've been wanting to do for awhile. Our reviews have changed a lot in the last six months or so, and the occasional redefinition of our aims and goals with the content is never a bad thing, especially if it keeps us level with our homies. That's you!

So, if you're curious as to what the Destructoid review crew is about and how our content comes together, we'll be explaining things in detail here. Hopefully, this'll clear up any confusion and prevent anybody from calling in a hit on ol' Linde in the event that I rate Halo 6: Zany Beach Party Adventures a pathetic 8.5.

We dump tremendous amounts of time and effort into our reviews and take a great deal of pride in them. Thanks for supporting our efforts, reading our reviews, and tearing eachother into kibble in the comments. Hit the jump for our fearsome manifesto.

Hot alien lesbian sex in Mass Effect? Set your pocket rockets for Planet Titty

Mass Effect has been passed by the British Board of Film Classification and given a 12-rating. Among the usual talk of mild violence and light cursing, one interesting entry in the board's classification details is that of a ...

New Folklore trailer captures my soul and holds it tightly, yet gently

Dick McVengeance has been clamoring for a fleshed-out trailer for the upcoming, PS3-exclusive Folklore, and I hope that his hunger has been satiated. In the above trailer, we get a look at Ellen and Keats, the game's protagon...

Beowulf screenshots make my inner bookworm squirm with delight

In the days before videogame journalism owned my soul, I could often be found in used bookstores perusing shelf after shelf of aging tomes, looking for that lit nerd's holy grail so often hidden there. Although the harsh real...

Would you play a horror MMO?

My Fourth of July was spent taking it easy (this is a chic phrase for slacking). I've been on a horror kick lately, and I haven't seen a Nightmare on Elm Street film for at least 5 years, so I borrowed a few from a fr...

Loki: Diablo for the graphics whore?

A mighty Norse warrior, a fierce Greek fighter, a powerful Egyptian sorcerer and a skilled Aztec shaman --what do they all have in common, exactly? Well, besides being a wicked crew of asskickers, they are the four playable r...
