Analogue Nt is a NES made of aircraft-grade aluminum

I see those plastic-y all-in-one game consoles all the time. I feel drawn to them, but always pass on them in the end. I still have all my old systems, after all, and they all still work. But the Analogue Nt has already won m...

Don't panic: Play The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in-browser

Looking for something to do today? How about be (rightfully) poked fun at by Douglas Adams for thinking you could pick up your dressing gown without getting out of bed? You can't reach it from the bed. The effort almost kills...

Review: Redux: Dark Matters photo
Review: Redux: Dark Matters
by Wesley Ruscher

If you told me I’d be playing a brand new Dreamcast game in 2014, back when the system saw its demise in 2002, I’d probably have said you were crazy.

It was at that point that Sega moved on to become a software-only developer in most of the world. But as it turns out, they actually continued to support the system in their home country for an additional five years, primarily with quick and easy ports from arcade games built on the NAOMI board (the Dreamcast’s arcade counterpart). Titles such as Puyo Puyo Fever and Trigger Heart Exelica kept the system relevant, for the arcade aficionado at least. But even Sega eventually left their fabled console past behind.

In Sega’s absence, an indie scene has embraced the all but forgotten console and churned out more than a dozen titles since 2007. The latest, Redux: Dark Matters, is a blast from the past that harkens back to the console’s glory days.

Review: Pac-Man Museum photo
Review: Pac-Man Museum
by Chris Carter

Let's not beat around the bush here -- with the new Pac-Man Museum compilation, you're getting a bunch of really old games you've most likely played before, a few you probably already own, and Pac-Man Battle Royale. Royale is a bit of a unique release, as it's only been playable outside of Japan at special events and arcades, and has been highly sought out by fans of the genre.

To be blunt, this is the perfect opportunity to wait for a sale just to pick up Royale.

Get your exclusive Valentine's card gaming gifs here
by Jonathan Holmes

It's Valentine's Day, which means there may be someone in your life that you feel excited (or obligated) to show how much you love them, most likely with candy, cards, or some other physical things. It's a holiday designed to make us feel like we have to spend money, which is great for the larger economy, but potentially bad for your wallet. 

Destructoid is not immune to these pressures. We want to show you, the Destructoid reader, that we love you. So please, take these Valentine's Day-themed romance .gifs (transformed into .gif form by the lovely Ronin Usagi and Kevin Bacon) and spread them to all you hold dear.

Joylancer is more than just a Game Boy aesthetic

When you look at Joylancer, what do you see? A monochromatic Game Boy visual style, no doubt. But when you start to peel back the layers and actually play the game for yourself, it becomes so much more than that. Even though ...
