The Dynasty Warriors team dreams about doing a Star Wars game

Omega Force has gotten its hands on properties like Gundam, One Piece, and now The Legend of Zelda and Dragon Quest -- but, in an ideal world, the studio would be working on something bigger: Star Wars. Yes, a Star Wars Musou...

Club Nintendo EU has a physical Kirby: Triple Deluxe soundtrack

In Europe, Club Nintendo members can spend their points on the 46-track Kirby: Triple Deluxe soundtrack. The CD costs 2,000 Stars and listening to it will make you feel good, I bet. Not exactly relevant to me as an American, ...

The ghost from P.T. is in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, players will be able to use Lisa, the apparition from P.T., as a decoy. It's times like these that remind me why I adore videogames. The little touches, y'know? The weirder, the bette...

Guild Wars 2 is throwing a free trial week soon photo
Guild Wars 2 is throwing a free trial week soon
by Jordan Devore

On Thursday, ArenaNet will kick off a week-long trial for Guild Wars 2. You'll be able to play the MMORPG for free from 12:00am Pacific on September 25 until 11:59pm Pacific on October 1.

Trial accounts can be opened ahead of time, so I'd suggest you go take care of that now to maximize your time. Note: there are some restrictions placed on trial players.

Just last week, community member Solar Pony Django put up a blog to generate interest in potentially starting a Destructoid guild. Take a look. Keep forgetting I own this game.

Blizzard's next massively multiplayer game, Titan, was never announced, but the company has spoken about the project off and on these past several years. Here's another update: the game has been canceled -- "it didn't come to...

Valve rolls out major Steam redesign

As a platform, Steam hasn't been able to keep up with the rate at which new games are coming out -- there were more than 1,300 releases in the last nine months alone, says Valve -- but today's so-called Discovery update inten...

Sunset Overdrive shows how live-action trailers should be done

Live-action trailers for videogames can be entirely hit or miss. It's to the point where I'm usually curious to check them out even if I have little if any interest in the source material. Will they be awesome, or a total tr...

LittleBigPlanet 3's Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes costumes are adorbs

I'm still freaking out over this weekend's big Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes news -- that you can capture and raise a wolf pup and it'll grow up to one day wear an eye patch. The best. This LittleBigPlanet news isn't on tha...

These Super Smash Bros. commercials are silly

I mean, yeah, what else would you expect? It's Super Smash Bros. Nintendo's television spots for the 3DS game feature the tagline "Settle it in Smash," which is a good fit for the series, admittedly, but I'm far more interested in that Doc Louis cameo.

Grand Theft Auto V in first person might be fun

The initial talk of an upgraded Grand Theft Auto V for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One didn't sound particularly compelling to me back when the new versions were heavily rumored, but the more I hear about what exactly is bein...

Mr. Resetti is in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, you guys photo
Mr. Resetti is in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, you guys
by Jordan Devore

There's yet another tie-in for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and it's the best one yet -- Animal Crossing! Players will be able to make their Felyne companions look like Mr. Resetti and Isabelle. Now, I'm not much of a Monster Hunter fan, but the chance to play alongside Resetti without him yelling at me, for once? Might just cave, depending on what's needed to acquire the outfits.

It's funny how these characters appear normally in Monster Hunter but Sonic the Hedgehog looks like he was skinned for his crossover. Guy can't catch a break.

PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend photo
PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

Weekends sure are good at going by too quickly. It's only Monday morning and I'm already wishing it were the end of the week. Sony isn't helping, either -- its unlocking online multiplayer for PlayStation 4 owners who aren't subscribed to PlayStation Plus this weekend.

Those users will gain access starting Friday, September 26 at 12:01am Pacific and it'll carry through Sunday, September 28 at 11:59pm Pacific. All you need to do to take part is log into your system during those times -- simple as that. What to play, though.

Castlevania's Koji Igarashi has put his 'dream game' on hold

As a huge fan of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it was exciting to hear that long-time series producer Koji Igarashi had left Konami to make the kind of games he wanted to make -- "the same kind I think fans of my past g...
