At some point, there will be an HD Zelda game and, for our sake, I hope it does away with the constant hand-holding and extended intros that were present in Skyward Sword, among other games.
Right now, none of us have any idea what Nintendo has planned for the next coming of Zelda on the Wii U, but one thing's for sure -- I hope it looks to A Link Between Worlds for guidance.
[Update: Holly's episode will happen today, Nov. 10th 2013. Be there.]
Today on Sup, Holmes? we'll be treated to an hour and a half with Holly Pickering, formerly of Travelers Tales. Holly got her start in the business at 20 ...
Last Sunday on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we welcomed David Gallant to the program. David made the papers earlier this year for his game I Get This Call Everyday -- an autobiographical comedy/tragedy game about his work in a call center. The game led to David losing his job and flinging himself into the game development world. Flinging yourself is pretty exciting, but its also risky, and inevitably painful.
We talked with David about the things that motivated him to make these decisions, the recent disagreements and misunderstandings that hovered around the Indie Custom Cube, Steam Greenlight feelings, the anger and fear brewing in "gamer culture" today, how to resolve that brew in the most constructive way possible, his favorite game on the Oculus Rift, eating magical brownies with Richard Hofmeier, and a whole heck of a lot more.
Thanks again to David for appearing on the program, and be sure to tune in tomorrow at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Holly Pickering (Lego Batman, Ether One) to the show.
[Every week, from early November through the end of 2013, I'll report on my use of Wii Fit U and how it benefits my health.]
This year, being the biggest console launch year in a decade, has been really busy for me. I normally travel over 80,000 miles a year for Destructoid, but this year has me nearly doubling that, and it's not over yet.
I eat well everywhere I go. It has become sort of a goal to find the best food I can in every city I visit. So I leave home for a week, pig out, come home stuffed, stressed, sometimes hung over, and always lacking rest, doing this every two weeks or so.
I looked down at my stomach last week. And on the floor, just past my bulging gut, I saw the Wii Fit Balance Board...
Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to another thrilling edition of Friday Night Fights! Today, we're going to talk about three of the biggest multiplayer games to launch this year. These games are, without a doubt, the most impor...
When Pokemon X & Y was first announced, opinions between fans were torn. Some didn't like the 3D models and emphasis on a flashy visual style, and others thought of it as the natural evolution of the series.
At first, I wasn't completely sold either. Although I was floored at the prospect of a new Pokemon game, it took some time until the game really warmed up to me. After catching every single Pokemon in the Kalos region Pokedex (all 454) though, I realized something -- I was having the most fun I had ever had with the franchise.
Because truly, it's the little things that made me fall in love with X & Y.
It's that time of the year again where we start finalizing all the hottest and coolest stuff we want to nab for the holidays. New consoles are upon us, there's a ton of great games to get, and there's plenty of other cool gad...
I seriously don't understand Microsoft's angle leading up to the launch of the Xbone. At this point in the game (PUNS) I feel like we should have a pretty good handle on what the system is and where it's going. Microsoft seem...
While we were all busy Halloweening it up, drinking pumpkin spice Four Loko and throwing rocks at ghosts, Nintendo unceremoniously maimed its 3DS drawing app, Swapnote. It removed SpotPass functionality from the service, which used to allow 3DS friends to send notes (drawn pictures or photos shot with the 3DS camera) to each other over the internet
Swapnote still exists, but images can only be traded locally, through StreetPass, at which point you might as well scribble on bar napkins and pass them out. No more Special Notes, personal letters and drawings from Nintendo staff, will come through the systems, either.
Nintendo acting backwards with respect to online communication isn't new, but usually people have some idea going in of the limited options they'll have. Nintendo actively removing an established feature because it was misused by some and because children use the system is heavy-handed and irritating.
There is room for Call of Duty in the gaming world -- I assure you. I don't know about milking it every damn year, but there is plenty of room for those of us who enjoy mindless first-person fun with our friends, occasionally in a military based fashion.
But the milk's gone bad, and Activision needs to step up to the plate and fix it. Here's how they can do it, and avoid the next Guitar Hero crash.
I'm not going to waste any time here: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes has a launch window now. As you might imagine, that makes my pants really tight. I'm not the only one who is unable to contain their hype -- my co-host Phi...
Microsoft's new console, the Xbox One, comes out in North American on November 22. That's soon! It will cost $500. That's fair chunk of money! I think it's time we Xbone up on the Xbox One with everything we know about it thus far.
Here's your first factoid. Not everyone at Microsoft appreciates the nickname "Xbone," but Microsoft's Phil Spencer has admitted, "I think it's going to stick." In a move Microsoft likely appreciates even less, parents will hopefully still just call it "a Nintendo."
It's time to wake up, sheeple! We're delving into the hard-hitting cover ups and conspiracies that Big Videogame doesn't want you to know about. How is Grand Theft Auto V a papal conspiracy? What ties does a certain Italian plumber have to the Communist party?
Is it just a coincidence that this video features four segments, is going up on November 4, and predates the upcoming PlayStation 4?!
This week on Sup Holmes we welcome David Gallant to the program. David is probably best known for losing his job after releasing a game called I Get This Call Everyday. He's also worked on the blood cell excitement title Hemo...
