Check out this Dark Void: Zero song remix

Dark Void: Zero was a pretty fun game and it had a really good 8-bit soundtrack by Bear McCreary, which only made it more awesome. The Capcom-Unity guys spotted this remix of the game's first level made by a Screwattack user...

Two Capcom-published games hit the App Store

Publisher Capcom has two fresh games available on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch: Dark Void Zero and Hatchlings.In a recent press release, Capcom celebrated the fact that both titles are using Aurora Feint's OpenFeint tech, which in a nutshell, allows for leaderboards and an Xbox LIVE-like Achievement system.

Dark Void Zero drops for PC and iPhone today

Capcom is saying that Dark Void Zero is out for the iPhone in this press release I have right here. I was going to download it and check it out to tell you a bit about it, but it's not actually up on the App Store yet. I'm su...

Dark Void Zero coming to iPhone and PC

Capcom has announced today that Dark Void Zero, previously only available on DSiWare, will be appearing on iPhone and Steam for PC on April 12th. The retro-styled prequel Dark Void was arguably better than the ...

Review recap: January 2010 photo
Review recap: January 2010
by Matthew Razak

Hi! Welcome to Destructoid. Did you know that we review games? We do it every month with all the major games. Sometimes people get angry at us for our opinions, and other times people agree. We see it as a way to let you know our honest opinion on what a game is like and if it's worth your hard-earned money.

Every month is so full of games, though, that you might miss one of our reviews. Maybe you've just been wishing for an easier way to compare all the games that came out in a given month and decide which one to get. Maybe you've just been looking for a place to easily compare one review score to another so you can tell us how dumb we are that we gave two games the same score when one is so blatantly better than the other.

Whatever your dream, your prayers have been answered with this new monthly post called Review... Recap. Yes, I left my creativity on a bus in Denver, so "Review Recap" it is.

Normally this space would be filled with a bit of info on the overall month, but I've wasted most of it on explaining, so we'll just jump right in. January was quite a month, with plenty of big releases landing thanks to the epic amount of delays last year. We had a major disappointment and even two rare perfect scores. Want to know what was good and what should be left behind? Hit the jump.

Dark Void original soundtrack coming Feb 9th

Composer Bear McCreary went all out on Dark Void, Capcom's latest. Yeah, they got the guy who composed the score for TV's Battlestar Galactica to do Dark Void. Awesome. Bear (awesome name) assembled an orchestra and recorded ...

Is Jimmy Fallon in Dark Void Zero?

I just started in on Dark Void Zero, and it's pretty fun. There's lots of stuff to collect, good level design, multiple weapons, and perhaps most importantly, Captain Jimmy Fallon. From what I can tell so far (literally, twen...

Nintendo DLC: Muscle March, Dark Void Zero, and more

Could this truly be the "best week ever" for Nintendo download releases? With Muscle March all oiled up and ready for WiiWare download, along with Capcom's 8-bit throwback Dark Void Zero for DSiWare, the answer is... yes. Yes...

CES 2010: Bend over, I'll show you a Dark Void (Zero)

And that title is what happens when I start running out of ideas.

I've always wanted a jetpack. I think that's a pretty universal desire. I don't think I would even be able to pilot such a thing, let alone keep from vomiting into my helmet from motion sickness. But that's what we have videogames for, to live out our fantasies.

While visiting Capcom at CES, after checking out the real Dark Void, I was given an opportunity to put the DSiWare "prequel" through its paces. It's looking like it might be one of the best games to hit Nintendo's portable marketplace. That might not be saying a whole lot, but it's certainly something.

Hit the jump and I'll go into more detail.

Dark Void Zero started as a joke, doesn't play like one

One of my most anticipated DS games of 2010 is Dark Void Zero. Why? Because I trust Capcom when it comes to NES-era gaming. Other than a few outliers like Street Fighter 2010, I loved just about every title they put out on th...

Dark Void demo is live, watch us play it

The fine folks at Air Tight Games have demo-ized Dark Void. This odd slice of the cover-system shooter is now available over Xbox LIVE Marketplace. It’s a small download (weighing in around 800 MB) that should give you...

Capcom looks back on 2009, teases new stuff for 2010

We're almost a week into the new year, and I'm still not used to it. I'm still writing "09" on stuff on a regular basis. Although 2009 is definitely over, I still feel like 2010 hasn't really started yet. Straddling the line ...

8-bit Dark Void Zero announced for DSiWare

I have to admit that I wasn't very excited for Dark Void when it was first announced—there's something about Airtight Games' vertical cover system that makes my head spin, kind of like the first time I played Portal. N...

Dark Void combat options: UFO or jetpack

Combat options -- Dark Void has them. In yet another new video series, the Capcom crew shows off what the jetpack-strapped protagonist can choose to do when confronted with a massive Archon walker. In this specific case, the...

Dark Void shows off its moves

I could probably stretch this post out a bit by describing what's going in the Dark Void video above, and then link back to some other posts we've done on the game. Maybe make a joke about something funny in the trailer, the...

See The Watchers in Dark Void

So I guess this Dark Void game is going to be a pretty big deal. What with the movie tie-ins we can easily conclude that Capcom is looking to make this a major franchise. Maybe it's because I haven't had any time with the ga...
