I have a very loud laugh. Some people say it is infectious, but I have been paranoid about it my entire life. When I am sitting in a movie theater, sometimes I laugh so hard that people think something is wrong with me. I eve...

After yesterday's official announcement of Metal Gear Solid 5 (woot!), I started thinking about how there really aren't any bad games in the entire, long-running Metal Gear series. All of the Solid games are near perfect, the...

Before E3, I posted Destructoid's annual E3 predictions. It was an epic competition for the ages. A competition even more brutal than the Thunderdome, Hunger Games, and Battle Royale COMBINED! I asked a videogame analyst (Jes...

Friend of Destructoid and Weekly Geek host Chris Furniss, along with many other remarkably talented artists (including Destructoid's own Ashley Davis!), recently put together a book of videogame art pieces entitled "31 Days o...

Rayman Legends is the direct Wii U-exclusive sequel to the beautiful, gorgeous, sublime 2D platformer Rayman Origins that was released last year. The good news if you were a fan of Rayman Origins: Rayman Legends is even more ...

Huh. That was my first reaction after playing ZombiU for the Wii U at Nintendo's booth during E3. Huh. Now, "huh" usually has a negative connotation, but that is not necessarily the case with this particular game. The "huh" i...

One of my favorite things to do at E3 is visit the smaller publisher and developers and try out their games. Usually creative and made with such a large amount of heart, the smaller games at E3 are always a breath of fresh ai...

I haven't made a final decision as to what my favorite game at E3 2012 is yet, but Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the 3DS is right up there. When DreamRift's game was announced a couple of months ago, I was shocked. Inste...

Interviewing the creator of the Harvest Moon series was one of my highlights of E3. In fact, it may have been the highlight. Yasuhiro Wada is an amazing, talented person with an unbelievably refreshing attitude about videogam...

Project P-100 (working title) from Platinum Games (creators of Viewtiful Joe and MadWorld) was one of the strangest Wii U games I played on the show floor at E3. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it reminded ...

Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS is not playable on the show floor at E3. Let me say that again: Paper Mario: Sticker Star is not playable. WHAT THE HECK, NINTENDO?! Of all the games here at E3, I was really hoping to ge...

There will be twelve total minigames in Nintendo Land for the Wii U, but only five were on display in the Nintendo booth. Now that I have played and previewed them all, which did I like the best? Since this list will change t...

This is the last in the series to preview all five of the games within Nintendo Land for the Wii U. (You can check out the other previews here, here, here, and here! Whew!) Let's talk "Donkey Kong's Crash Course!" I am going ...

Only two more left! This is the fourth in a series to preview all of the games within Nintendo Land for the Wii U. You can check out the other three here, here, and here! I swear, I really had a great time with the Nintendo L...

This is the third in a series to preview all of the games within Nintendo Land for the Wii U. You can check out The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest here and Luigi's Ghost Mansion right here! Ninjas star in some of my favorite g...

Next up in my series to preview all five of the games within Nintendo Land for the Wii U is Luigi's Ghost Mansion. (Check out The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest right here!) With Luigi's Ghost Mansion, Nintendo Land is bringin...

Nintendo Land: The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest is one of the twelve Nintendo character-themed minigames that will appear in Nintendo Land for the Wii U. Five of these minigames were playable on the show floor. The other sev...

This is it. The moment I have been anticipating for years. I am a giant fan of the Pikmin series. GIANT! And every year for the last few years, I have hoped and prayed Pikmin 3 would be official and announced at that year's E...

The Paper Mario series is one of my favorite Nintendo series ever, so you better believe I was excited to see Paper Mario: Sticker Star make a way-too-short appearance during the way-too-short 3DS portion of the Nintendo pres...

Let's get this out of the way right now: Seeing a brand new, 2D Mario in HD is surreal. I have been waiting for so long to finally see a Nintendo franchise in high-definition, so seeing Mario run around the Mushroom Kingdom d...

With the release of the Wii U, gamers around the world will finally be able to see what a Mario game looks like in HD in the form of New Super Mario Bros. U. I have seen it, played it, and drooled over it (hands-on impression...

As I was walking around the Nintendo booth, I noticed that some Wii U consoles were white and others were black. We had been introduced to the white one already, so I was curious to know if the black console was official ... ...

Outside of the Wii U GamePad, the other controller that Nintendo had on display in its booth was the Wii U Pro Controller. A more traditional controller, the Wii U Pro is another option of playing games on the Wii U. Between ...

One of the things I was most looking forward to at this E3 was seeing and touching the new Wii U GamePad. I had played with it last year, but knew that some major aesthetic changes were made, and wanted to see if I liked what I saw ... er, felt. What did I think? Was it tablet-riffic ... or tablet-errible?

I am a giant Nintendo fan -- maybe the biggest on the site! So it goes without saying I was excited for the Nintendo press conference this morning. Now that it is over, what did I think? Was it everything I could have hoped for? Or did I leave disappointed. I know you have a lot to read about today, so I will make this quick.

The Last of Us is beautiful. During the demo at the Sony press conference, I gasped several times. And not even because of the action on-screen. That was cool, too, but the game was so gorgeous I couldn't help but stare in a...

Using the PlayStation Eye, the Wonderbook makes books come to life! Imagine reading a page about a dragon -- with Wonderbook, the dragon will fly off the page and, I don't know, set the curtains in your living room on fire? N...

During Sony's press conference, Jack Tretton announced that Journey is officially the best selling PSN game of all time. Quite a feat. Quite a great game. This is exciting news for fans of the game and great news for developer thatgamecompany. If you haven't bought the game yet, go download it! It is wonderful.

This is the kind of stuff that makes me happy. When Rayman Legends was announced as a Wii U exclusive at the Ubisoft press conference, the above outstanding, joy-filled footage was shown. As much as I love it all, check out ...

We all knew Assassin's Creed III was coming. We knew its setting. We knew about the main character. But this is the first time most of us are laying eyes on the extended demo. And it looks pretty great. It's still a little h...

Now that's how you do a press conference! Awesome host! Awesome games! Awesome demos! A promising new IP! RAYMAN LEGENDS! Okay, they could have just shown Rayman Legends and still have been a winner, but there were other grea...

Shooters! That was the vibe I got after watching the EA press conference. Sure, they had some SimCity and Need for Speed to break up the trigger pulling action, but most of their presentation was all about shooters. Some set ...

I am not a huge Halo fan. I don't hate it by any means, but with all the other games to play, I usually put the Halo series on the back-burner. But this new image for Halo 4 just released after Microsoft's press conference is...

As assets are starting to roll out after the Microsoft press conference, this new artwork from Gears of War: Judgment really caught my eye. (Check out the full image in the gallery.) It is very striking in all its fire-, battle-filled glory. What do you think? Like what you see? Are you excited about Gears of War: Judgment?

The Microsoft press conference was a decent showing. There may not have been any crazy new announcements, but the conference itself was entertaining and well-paced. A solid, if not spectacular, briefing. Also, I may have kind...

Yay?

When I first heard about Gears of War: Judgment, I was, like, "A new Gears game? Already?!" But then I remembered I liked Gears of War and thought: "A new Gears game! Awesome!" Not much was shown of the new Gears of War game ...

During the live stream of E3 on GameTrailers just now, Phil Spencer revealed the names of all the XBLA games that will compose the annual Summer of Arcade. Those games are: Hybrid (from 5th Cell) Deadlight Wreckateer (Kinect exclusive) Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Dust: An Elysian Tale Excited? I know I am. Deadlight looks ridiculously amazing.

It looks like a little information has leaked before the Microsoft press conference this morning. A new Splinter Cell game! Called Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the screenshots show Sam Fisher (?) doing some manly things in some ...

The Microsoft press conference starts in about an hour, kicking off the unofficial start of E3. Since you, of course, will be following the constant news updates here on Destructoid (RIGHT?!), let's talk about what we want ou...
