Role-Playing Games


Atlus USA just announced plans to localize Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & the Monster Seal, a PlayStation Vita-exclusive role-playing game "for dungeon crawling fan-service devotees."   ...


With the tough-as-nails approach, cryptic story, and ethereal aesthetic, Souls games are a tough sell. But the quality of each game (and the talent of director Hidetaka Miyazaki) shines through, and Bloodborne is th...


If an image or video is tagged as 4K, yeah, I'm more than likely gonna click on it. Even if it's media showing a game at a level of graphical fidelity I can't possibly attain with my computer. Misery loves company, so please ...


Are you eagerly awaiting the launch of The Witcher 3 next month? Want to purchase a huge chunk of extra content before the game has even released? Well, if you do then we now know how much doing so will set you back. Accordin...


The folks behind Mars: War Logs, Of Orcs and Men, and Bound by Flame are working with Focus Home Interactive on yet another action role-playing game. When it releases next year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, The Technomancer will...


In this overview for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, protagonist Geralt and a woman sit on a unicorn in just their underwear and she uses "breathtaking magic" to dissolve her bra (quick, cut away!). It was at that point I shed som...


There was a Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning focused on Xenoblade Chronicles X. Thanks to some helpful translation, we know a few more details about the Dolls and mechs and cooperative play. One cool-sounding note is th...


[Spoilers for one of the main bosses in Bloodborne.] The next time you see a note left by another player in Bloodborne, consider rating it "fine" even if it's not all that insightful. As shown in this clip from Chief023, you...


Everyone knew that The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt would be a massive game. CD Projekt Red's been touting that since early development, and, frankly, it was just kind of assumed anyway. Sure, there will be plenty of non-integral...


Did you try out the beta for The Elder Scrolls Online and promptly dip out before the final game was actually out? You'll have a chance to jump in and see what the new subscription-free version is all about next weekend,...


Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight is arriving sometime this summer in the US, with a solid "unknown" date in Europe -- good ol' Atlus. As you can probably tell it's a remake of the second game, much like The Mi...


Guild Wars 2's Heart of Thorns expansion is shaping up to be a great addition to the game, and soon, you'll be able to experience part of it ahead of schedule. Developer ArenaNet has announced that they will be holding a...


This showed up a few days ago in the ol' Destructoid inbox, and it sure has a look to it. I'm picking up a lot of Zelda in the above Kickstarter trailer, but also hints of Fable and Minecraft too. It's got floating islands (...


There was a bunch of news out of Level-5 this week, so you might have missed seeing Yo-Kai Watch Busters, an upcoming 3DS action game that's essentially a cutesy take on Ghostbusters through the lens of Japan. I mean, there'...


Nintendo has been dipping its toes in the water of DLC and free-to-play with mixed results. Although it has done a great job creating worthwhile add-ons that don't feel like rushed day-one cash grabs, the whole amiibo situati...


The customary development cycle for large-scale videogames in 2015 all but necessitates that the conclusion of working on a base title segues into working on downloadable content. That's just how it works now. And, that's wha...


Yesterday, we talked about From Software Director Hidetaka Miyazaki's favorite boss fight from the Souls series. Interestingly enough it was the Old Monk from Demon's Souls, an encounter that blurred the l...


It's a dreadful time to be a Level-5 fan. Or maybe a great one. Dunno. I suppose that all depends on where you exist on this Venn diagram: Level-5 announced Fantasy Life 2 for smartphones today, which probably disp...


Level-5 has big plans for the Yo-Kai Watch franchise beyond the localization of the first game in 2016. It's also gone and announced three more titles in the franchise last night, including Yo-Kai Watch 3, Yo-kai Watch:...


In case you haven't been paying attention, Level-5's Yo-Kai Watch franchise has been rocking it over in Japan since 2013 with over seven million units in sales. Rumors of a localization have been brewing for over a year ...


This is the first 15 minutes of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, without the opening cinematic, but still with a couple minutes of cutscene followed by horse riding and monster smashing. I've yet to catch up on the series ahead of ...


This guy. This guy right here. It was late at night and I was already on edge in one of Bloodborne's unnerving Chalice Dungeons. I had hoped to quickly find the lever so I could proceed to the boss, get my ass kicked a few t...


Final Fantasy XV is a huge and expensive game, probably. Since its rebranding from Versus XIII to XV with a cool trailer -- holy crap, two years ago -- we've mostly been shown the area that would go on to be the demo included...


Mashups are often born purely for fanservice-related reasons, and as you can probably guess, the results are mixed. For instance, it would be tough for an RPG developer to make an action game based on two different puzzle pro...


YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin f...


Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still going strong, and Capcom is supporting it with plenty of free DLC. Capcom? Lots? Free DLC? I know, I know. This month you'll be able to pickup a Sonic the Hedgehog Palico skin, as well...


Videogames based on television shows can be pretty hit or miss, but usually they miss. The same can also be said for mobile games in general. This makes something like Attack the Light, a mobile game based on the popular cart...


Yesterday's peek at Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem raised as many questions as it did fanboy squeals. A new blog today (with somewhat differing translations between Siliconera and Mystic of Traduko Soft) answers and ra...


Developer NeocoreGames has announced that the third part of the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will arrive on PC this May. This will be the third entry in two years, and will carry the tradition of multiplayer ove...


Depending on how far you are into Bloodborne, you've probably come to realize that this late-game area, accessible using the "Mergo's Loft: Middle" warp from the Hunter's Dream, is one of the best spots to quickly earn Blood...


While we were all getting too excited by the trailer for the upcoming Fire Emblem in the UK and North America Nintendo Direct, further details are breaking on the Japan side of things, courtesy of the Japanese website. There ...


[Update: Watch the trailer!] The new Fire Emblem trailer is just as amazing as the announcement trailer. There's also deep talk of fate and choosing a path (some stark black and white dichotomy) between siding with the peace...


Season 3 in Diablo III is almost upon us, but before we delve into something that serious, let's pull back a bit and use the adorable as a palate cleanser. (Who would've ever thought that "adorable" would be an adjectiv...


Last week, Chris told us about a game-breaking glitch in Bloodborne that made it so an item called the Lunarium Key, which is needed to reach a main-story boss, wouldn't appear. The issue has been fixed, so you can play co-op...


Nintendo 3DS role-playing game Stella Glow is coming to the Americas, Atlus just announced.  Players take on the role of Alto, a young knight who must convince Witches throughout the Regnant Kingdom to join his si...


If you're like me and you've been obsessing over Steven Universe for the past month, this news should excite you! Cartoon Network Games is set to release a Steven Universe RPG for mobile devices on April 2. Developed by Grum...


Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is scheduled to launch on Steam this Wednesday, April 1 with current and last-gen counterparts becoming available the following Tuesday, April 7. From Software has described the reissue...


Jaws of Hakkon, the new $15 Dragon Age: Inquisition story DLC that released last week for Xbox One and PC, won't be available to download on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360 until May, BioWare has confirmed. Obligat...


It's not exactly a new concept for Amazon to bundle the hot game of the week with consoles. That's been happening for a while with the likes of Grand Theft Auto V and Dying Light being two of the more recent example...


After struggling to find a co-op partner for a deceptively tricky magic-slinging boss in Bloodborne last week, I started to browse for answers, and it seems like the PlayStation 4's rest mode -- the thing that lets you suspen...
