We're in our pajamas talking GDC

Destructoid solves a murder: Danganronpa Edition

From the beginning, this murder (and I've seen a lot of them over the course of my career) struck me as too simple. Kyle Hebert -- a voice actor you may recognize as the voice of Ryu from Street Fighter -- was found dead in an elevat...

How often do you use the 3DS' StreetPass functionality?

It's been a while since I've asked people about StreetPassing. Nintendo's feature was pretty innovative at launch, but given the low number of 3DS sales it was hard to find someone to do it with. Now it feels like everyone and their grandma...

 
Making Tearaway
Earlier this month, I caught up with Media Molecule's Rex Crowle, lead creator on one of my favorite games of last year, Tearaway. My main goal was simple: to thank him for such a fantastic Vita game. But we ended up chatting...   read

The joy of science: Touring Logitech's Swiss R&D labs

Last week, I mysteriously vanished from the web. And when I resurfaced, I was at Logitech's Daniel Borel Innovation Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, of all places. There's something I never thought I'd be able to say. With around 30 other w...

Thor Wii developer discusses smiting and movie tie-ins

I was pretty much on the fence the last time I played Red Faction: Armageddon. My tune has all but changed with my latest playthrough, as I got to experience a lot more that the game has to offer. Plus, the new build was quite a bit more polished, especially in the visuals department. It's not entirely perfect, but all in all, I'm happier with what to expect come next month.   read
