PS Vita


When Retro City Rampage was earlier in development, its creator Brian Provinciano printed up some promotional materials that looked like Sega Master System and Nintendo Entertainment System boxes. That wasn't just a cute mark...


There's a certain thrill to a game that punishes you for attempting to best it, as Bloodborne and Souls series fans can attest to. That's why there happen to be so many of them cropping up here and there, especially over the ...


We heard about April's PlayStation Plus games earlier this week but here's another late addition: Woah Dave! from Choice Provisions. The penny-collecting, alien-dodging, egg-throwing arcade game was free for subscribers back ...


Dragon Quest Heroes II is in production for PS4, Vita, and PS3, Square Enix announced today. Well, that was fast. Square Enix just released Dragon Quest Heroes in Japan a few weeks a ago and the publisher already has a follow...


I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...


April's free-game lineup for PlayStation Plus subscribers is full of titles I intend to play (or so I tell myself) but haven't gotten around to just yet. Never Alone, that wondrous folklore-inspired platformer about a young I...


PlayStation's baseball monopoly continues this year with the consistently good MLB 15 The Show (PS3, PS4, Vita). That does come with more caveats than ever this year. Online servers seem to be shutting down for the previous ...


As you may recall, Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities came out of near-nowhere with its Silent Hill 2 cast additions, after several years off the development grid. If you're still wondering what Guy Cihi's delightf...


It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.


Marvelous recently announced Valkyrie Drive, a three-pronged multimedia project about teenage girls who can transform into weapons. Now that's taking objectification to a whole new level. In addition to an anime series a...


When One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 arrives in Europe, the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game will be getting a special edition. How special? Well, a certain character will grace you with his presence inside the box in figur...


Today marks the end of our week of Devolver Digital streaming, and to celebrate I'll be playing through one or two the various games we've streamed this week. Vote for your favorite in the comments or let me know on Twitter&n...


Sony's gotta-catch-'em-all Vita card game Destiny of Spirits will be shut down June 30. Apparently the "over one million downloads" were not enough to sustain the free-to-play Vita title and so Sony will be "ending service." ...


Before Bloodborne or even Demon's Souls, From Software created Shadow Tower, another dark action role-playing game, which released for the original PlayStation more than 15 years ago. According to the latest episode of the Pl...


Welcome to day two of our special partnership with the amazing folks over at Devolver Digital! Yesterday, we took a look at Farmer Gnome's western shooter A Fistful of Gun and Titan Souls, an action game w...


Double Fine has settled on April 28, 2015 as the release date for Broken Age Act 2 on PC and Broken Age (both acts) on PS4 and PS Vita. European console players have to wait a day. There's Cross-Buy on PlayStation, and saves ...


Persona 4: Dancing All Night is still slated for a Western release in 2015, but it's headed for Japanese Vita owners on June 25. I'm eagerly gobbling up every single scrap Atlus tosses out until the official release, so check...


We're a day away from Senran Kagura: Estival Versus' Japanese release on PS4 and Vita. I stumbled upon this page of the series' website, which is to say someone linked to it, gobsmacked, on Twitter, where I clicked on it and...


Have you played the phenomenal Metal Slug 3 yet? If not, you really have no excuse at this point, as the game has come to just about every console imaginable. Today, the Neo Geo classic is also available on PS4, PS3, and PS V...


While I'm definitely grateful for the long shelf life of recent consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360, there comes a time where having progress impeded by previous and current-generation co-development gets old. In an era where ...


Marvelous is launching a new franchise that appears to be more salacious and sexually-charged than Senran Kagura, if that even sounds possible. The publisher revealed a new mixed media project at this weekend's AnimeJapan ex...


If you have some spare change in your couch or sister's piggy bank, then it's time to put those coins to good use. The Flash Sale currently happening for PlayStation owners features not only a lot of quality games, but they a...


Atari thought it was "absolutely rubbish," the Jaguar designer told developer Jeff Minter in 1993. The man felt compelled to pull Minter aside at the console's launch party and let him know how little Atari thought of Minter'...


I don't know what's going on lately, but there seems to be a plethora of sales happening, especially for consoles. Today's big fat deal comes by way of the publisher Atlus. Posted over on their Facebook page, they decided to offer some wallet relief for hump day. Take a close look, because here is what they got for sale:


If there's one thing we can all agree upon re: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, it's that Dennaton Games did an exceptional job matching songs with the tone and feel of specific levels. This series wouldn't be what it is -- a ...


The new trailer for LEGO Jurassic World really knows how to get me super pumped for a Jurassic Park game. It features several scenes from the 1993 movie animated in the LEGO style. Everything from the T. Rex chase scene, to ...


As a Brit, I do miss the weirdness that defined the PS2. Play novels, especially, had to make do with the DS. And yes, several years later, I'm still upset about Cing. But fret not, my niche loving console chums! NIS America ...


On my last day covering PAX East, I had the chance to sit down with the inimitable Dan Marshall from Size Five Games to have a look at his gorgeous, stealthy, steampunk-centric burglary simulator The Swindle. We’ve...


Dan Adelman worked for Nintendo for many years, and was one of their unsung heroes for much of that time. While he has consistently voiced affection and respect for the company, he did end up resigning last year, in part bec...


Child of Light was late to Vita, coming in July.That the handheld wasn't a priority Ubisoft can't belie. And yet, what's this, a North American physical Vita release in March?Could it be Ubisoft doesn't want to leave our hand...


Lancarse's Lost Dimension (PS Vita, PS3) is coming to North America and Europe courtesy of Atlus and NISA, respectively, this summer. The tactical RPG came out in Japan last year. There's a lot of pedigree behind it, too. La...


When we last checked in with Samus, she was trying to score an interview with Tim Rogers, co-creator of Videoball. Despite the fact that she's been appearing in videogames for over 25 years, he still didn't know who she was....


Roguelikes suck. They don't suck as in they are horrible to play. They suck for me because they're so damn hard. But in this genre, that's part of the challenge. For whatever reason, our gamer brains desire to overcome the im...


OlliOlli was a pleasant surprise. A year ago, the minimalist skateboarding game materialized out of nowhere, deconstructing the genre and distilling its essence down the barest essentials. It stripped away any traces of exces...


After completing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the credits roll and a suspicious title screen appears. Funnily enough I raced to click "New Game" and it ended up being part of the ending, promptly rewinding back to the Hotline 2 main menu after a few seconds. Spoilers below and in the gallery as to what the Easter egg is.


For some, Hotline Miami was an existential look at the current macro-state of videogames. You were told to commit random acts of murder seemingly without remorse, and at the end, you get a bit of interesting commentary on the...


There’s something serene about exploring a desolate place for the first time. Too often in games I find myself dropped into an environment, expected to pick up the pieces quickly to achieve a goal and left with little t...


Persona 4: Dancing All Night has an additional playable character only referred to in passing during the game, Rise's idol successor Kanami Mashita.  I'm not sure why she's dressed like a clowned out Erica (or what's wi...


We all know the PlayStation Vita is now the de facto home for all things Japanese. Ports, remakes, re-releases, and original content all trickle down similarly to the little handheld that could, and the Vita port of 2010's PS...


Hello all and welcome to Laura's Gaming Butts, Destructoid's new weekly YouTube show about butts in videogames. Yep, it's a video podcast where I get guests in to talk about butts. Professional journalism at its finest. This...
