We try Metal Gear Solid cardboard box candy at TGS

Yes, they really have Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain cardboard box candy at Tokyo Game Show 2014. We were stupid enough to spend 640 yen (about $6) on eight pieces of what looks to be tiny squares of chocolate crisped rice...

Tokyo Game Show 2014 kicks off today (also, floor gallery)

Tokyo Game Show 2014 has officially kicked off today, running through September 21. As always, these first two days are for business (yeah, right) and the remaining two add in the public (and the cosplayers; sweat).  Thi...

The new Pink/White PS Vita is super cute

I'll stick with my teal blue Japanese PS Vita that I brought home from TGS last year. But I'm still digging the new Pink/White model, on display at TGS 2014. It's just like mine with the all-white face, with the back taking all the color.  This new Vita launches in November in Japan, priced at 18,980 yen. How's your boring North American Vita?

Final Fantasy XV screenshots from TGS are...uh

You've seen the trailer so now see the screenshots Square Enix handed me this morning at Tokyo Game Show 2014 for Final Fantasy XV. They're having a tailgating party. Car-b-que. It's a nice car, I guess. But the screenshots look nice! That battle one does something for me. The upcoming Xbox One and PS4 title has this new media, but that's the only thing you'll get out of TGS 2014. Hang in there.

Persona Q Edition of Nintendo 3DS coming to U.S.

We get some of the limited edition 3DS systems but we miss out on the better ones in USA. But this one makes up for it all. Nintendo will release the Persona Q 3DS XL here, exclusively at GameStop. $199 will get you this Velv...

You already know you want it but here's a Persona Q preview anyway photo
You already know you want it but here's a Persona Q preview anyway
by Dale North

It was almost surreal to be playing Persona Q in English for the first time this past week. It came out of nowhere late last year, a fantasy game mixing Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters in a new 3DS game that uses Etrian Odyssey's engine and dungeon play. I didn't believe the game was real after first hearing about it -- it sounded more like fan fiction! Now I'm playing the very first English language build, just ahead of the North American release.

This has nothing to do with gaming, I'm sure. Feel free to remind us of that in the comments.

Apple announces the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

Tim Cook called it the "biggest advancement in iPhone." We called it the worst of their long history of poorly kept secrets.  Two sizes: both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus were announced this morning at Apple's pres...

Why are we excited about these New 3DS packaging shots?

An informal poll of the Destructoid staff reveals that we're all senselessly excited for this New 3DS. It doesn't make sense. None of us need one. We should be mad at Nintendo for having us wanting another iteration. But we'r...

by Dale North

Xbox One-owning Xbox Live Gold members can play Forza Motorsport 5 for free this weekend, starting 12:01 a.m. Pacific time September 4, running through midnight on Sunday. The entire game is available for free play. It's a big ass download so you had better get started.

There's a special race event called Grand Tour of Prague running this weekend, letting you earn a new title and badge for your profile. You'll keep all of your data, so at the end of the weekend you can choose to buy the full title and continue on.

During this weekend event, Xbox Live users in USA can qualify for a chance to win a trip to the Forza Motorsport Grand Prix road Racing Class at Bondurant, located in Arizona. All expenses are paid for the three-day trip.

Watch out for my Drivatar.
