Retro City Rampage


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...


If you own Retro City Rampage DX on the 3DS, you should have an update ready for you now in Europe, and "soon" in North America. The delay for the latter is due to a Nintendo certification process that isn't qu...


The fine folks at Vblank Entertainment (Brian Provinciano to be exact) want to give one lucky Destructoid community member a limited edition copy of Retro City Rampage DX for the PS4. What makes this so special is that o...


Retro City Rampage is a pretty polarizing game around these parts, but I found myself really digging it, especially the well-crafted 3DS port. For everyone who still plays it off and on, you might be happy to know that creato...




When Retro City Rampage was released last year, developer Brian Provinciano was inundated with requests to put the game on the 3DS. It didn't look likely at first. Brian was already tackling the job of building the game on P...

Despite that it was coded by just one guy, Retro City Rampage was made available for just about every platform imaginable (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS Vita, PC), except for the 3DS. That's about to change tomorrow when the comedy...


Retro City Rampage is coming to the 3DS in Q1 2014 for the low, low price of $9.99 in North America, the UK, Australia, and New Zeland. That's a heck of a bargain for a game with this much content. A friend of mine once desc...


Retro City Rampage is coming to the 3DS, and everyone's favorite nine foot tall beardless viking Jim Sterling wasn't sure he'd be down with that. The game combines GTA-style open world criminal behavior with low-res, sprite-...


Considering all of the other platforms Retro City Rampage is available on, it only seemed like a matter of time before it would end up on 3DS. In a list of games playable next week at PAX Prime, Nintendo outed the existence o...

After a sizable wait, Retro City Rampage has made its Xbox Live Arcade debut. While this will be neither the first nor last version of the game, it is nice to know that it costs 800 Microsoft Points ($10) instead of launching...


Retro City Rampage was one of the most interesting releases of 2012. Written and designed largely by one man, the game was in development for years, leaving hungry fans to lay in wait. Xbox 360 and Wii owners may still b...

It's finally here! It seems like I've been writing about Retro City Rampage for as long as I've been writing about games, but the day of sweet release has finally arrived and you can pick up the game right now on PC (through Steam and GOG.com), PS3 and PS Vita. While you're waiting for your download to complete (you did go and start that, right?), enjoy the game's launch trailer seen above.


We weren't live today, but that's okay. We still love you. To prove it, here's some news about Sim City, Retro City Rampage, Angry Birds, and of course... The Unfinished Swan. So, different types of cities, and different types of birds. VIDEO GAMES.


Retro City Rampage. October 9, 2012. PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PC. You read that correctly. Brian Provinciano's NES-style Grand Theft Auto parody has been cooking for just over a decade, and when it missed its proposed...


In the time since the first time I played Retro City Rampage I've co-hosted a show with newcomer Tara Long, created an animated talk show, talked to women about videogames, created Sup, Holmes?, and been the subject of m...


Retro City Rampage will support cross-play between the PS3 and PlayStation Vita versions, which is certainly neat. Even neater, however, is the fact that when you buy it on one platform, you'll get it on the other. One paymen...


The final game I checked out at E3 was the PS Vita port of Retro City Rampage, the title I was most looking forward to playing. With the copious amounts of hands-on previews and the frustration of its seemingly endless develo...
