[Read on for a description of every Devil May Cry game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2013.]

2013 is going to be an exciting year. Now that I know you guys enjoy reading my Quests, I'm going to make an effort to do even more of them from here on out.

I hope that you have learned a bit about the franchises I've covered so far, as my plan is to inspire others to share their thoughts and feelings with the series of their choice as well (which many of you have done!).

In addition to Metroid, Mega Man Classic, the Mega Man spinoffs, Mega Man X, and Splinter Cell, I also have another one ready to go for 2013: Devil May Cry.

The Question: What was your favorite PlayStation 2 game?

[Every Friday (or whenever), Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!] As you may have heard, the PlayStation 2 is officially dead. Sony has halted all production of the console worldw...

RIP: PlayStation 2 production has stopped worldwide photo
RIP: PlayStation 2 production has stopped worldwide
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Last week we found out that PlayStation 2s had stopped shipping in Japan. Sony has now officially announced that PlayStation 2 production has stopped worldwide, according to The Guardian. Yes, it's truly an end of an era.

Hard to believe it's been 12 years since the PlayStation 2 was brought to life. In that time Sony sold 150 million units worldwide, and there were over 10,000 games created for Sony's dominating system. There's no denying that the PlayStation 2 won the last-generation, with its killer lineup of exclusives, and the brilliant idea of including a DVD player within the console.

While it hasn't seen the light of day for the longest time now, I'm glad I own my PlayStation 2 plus handful of games still.

Capcom vs. SNK 2 PS2 Classic news is coming next year

Capcom vs. SNK 2 is one of my most played fighting games of all time (and was probably my best game, tourney wise). The cast of characters is diverse, the controls were tight, and it had a ton of content to keep you going (cu...

Screw the Classic Controller, use a DualShock instead

I'm not fond of the Classic Controller. Not in the slightest. And as much as I love the Wii remote and nunchuk set-up for some games, it's far from the ideal way to play titles like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Super Smash Bros. ...

Classic make out sim Chulip is poised for a comeback

One of the things that I love about the Japanese school of game development is that it allows for retail based home console titles to be about anything. It's similar to the difference between Manga and Western comi...

100% Series Retrospective: Resident Evil
by Chris Carter

[Read on for a description of every Resident Evil game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2012.]

Why Resident Evil?

This year, Capcom is pushing out three entirely new Resident Evil games -- it's also the 15th Anniversary of Resident Evil: Director's Cut, which is the first RE game I fully completed. So why am I playing the series in the first place?

Honestly, Resident Evil 1 was one of the first times, outside of Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu, where I was completely immersed in the game and its world. I remember plotting out where I'd gone in the mansion in a custom map at 10 years old (no guides), and wanting nothing else than seeing "what's next."

I couldn't get enough of the unique scenarios the game offered, like dogs crashing through a window, or a terrifying snake appearing out of nowhere. It wasn't necessarily the claustrophobia and the slow-moving zombies that made me love the series -- it was the sheer amount of variety the game offered up.

If you haven't joined me on my Quests before, the way they work is pretty simple. It's kind of like a retrospective, but rather than just give you an overview of a franchise, I'll generally let you know what I thought of the game when it was released, and what I think of it now. If I didn't provide a complete vision of what the game is like before I replay it, I'll provide an "extended thoughts" section below each applicable entry. I'll update my progress in real time through my blog, and after I finish the entire Quest, I'll share it with you guys on the front page.
