Review: Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure

You don't need me to tell you that music-based rhythm action titles are hot shiz these days. Is it because the combination of music with skill-based activity triggers endorphins? Stimulates the brain's reward center? I'm n...
I hate tactical games. I hate strategy games, real-time strategy games, and tactical RPGs. I would rather drive screws into my nostrils with the business end of a power drill and, of course, apply a nail gun to my eyes than p...
I am the Hero of Legend. The planet's fate rests in my hands. I will not be stopped.My travels have spanned the world, and my prowess as a hero has steadily grown. With each stroke of my weapon I grow stronger; with each tick...
I am the Hero of Legend.Long have been my travails in a vast and mysterious world, an environment largely hostile to me. When I departed the tiny, peaceable village where I spent the whole of my childhood as a mere farming bo...


After 1,000 years, the Dark Lord has, against all odds, re-emerged into the world.We hadn't thought it possible. Our people had, through a use of time- and space-rending magical power, with the aid of a great celestial coinci...
I beat that damn werewolf.I complained recently that the current era's intuitive, "easy" games might have blunted my legendary, meticulously-honed gamer skillz of old, like a one-time champ who's over the hill. A li...
So, extending my... extended Castlevania kick recently, I started playing Dracula X Chronicles on the PSP over the weekend. Firstly, it's a toe-curlingly good remake -- when Richter first crosses the bridge and it begins to r...
Donkey Kong Barrel Blast is the latest racer for the Wii. If you’re unfamiliar with the backstory, we’ve been promised the game for quite some time – it was actually supposed to be a GameCube title, using ...
So have you got Teh Haloes? Yes, no? I haven't. Even though I've yet to hear a recommendation against it; even though it is, by all accounts a solid game, and by some accounts, a revolutionary game. Most of all, I've yet to see a heavily critical rating.So why aren't I interested? Hit the jump; maybe you can tell me. 
Thinking of the Harvest Moon series, it’s rather amazing that it’s as compelling as it is, considering the entire gameplay revolves around the repetition of simple, mundane behaviors. But add in gentle townsfolk, ...
So we know that wedding proposals take place in MMOs all the time, sweet touching moments of deep connection that occur when real people start to forget that Azeroth is not a real place, as their concept of reality becomes ev...
Anytime someone says that games aren't art, we're up in arms burning straw effigies of Ebert. Any time someone says games are destructive, we want blood. Half of us want to pretend that games are only toys, and the other half...
So yeah, obviously we're all excited about Rock Band, duh. Are you really excited? Wanna get your hands on it now, before anyone else -- and be on national television?The tender dreams of hilariously ironic rock superstardom ...
Samus likes it on top, boys. Gamasutra and CVG are both reporting that Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is in the top spot on the all-format sales charts, possibly outdoing BioShock in its first week of sales.Actually, it looks pr...
Image quality is poor because I snapped it with my cell phone, but I found this on the floor of Arcadia Winery (upper portion). One of those musty old cheese wheels and what looks like floor dirt forms a cute and not-so-subtle little nod from the cutting edge of gaming to the old, old school. Rock on.
I recently interviewed Nexon's Min Kim for Worlds in Motion, where I'm editor when not here at Destructoid. I cover bizness news related to online worlds, social networking, and MMOs that work on the free-to-play, pay-for-goo...
What is it about Final Fantasy VII? We all try to be cool. "Overrated," we scoff amongst our enclave of pals as we mock Cloud on forums and draw comical mutilation fanart of Aeris (SPOILER: SHE DIES). And yet, I de...
Do you guys say "raddest" or "most rad?" Man, college was a nightmare, huh? --Oh, right, I didn't go. Boy, was I mistaken -- instead of languishing at acting school with boys taking their clothes off and c...
So it looks like the Crisis Core PSP bundle is available for preorder in a few places. That's the new PSP slim, with a Buster Sword wrist strap and some Zack-Cloud-Sephiroth art as done by Nomura, from the looks of it. They'r...
So, like many, I played the unbelievable BioShock demo last night, and was floored. I've never been much of an FPS fan; I've always said it would take a lot to get me really into the genre. But few could argue with me that Bi...
Heard on Kotaku about this strategy RPG from Idea Factory/RED called Record of Agarest War. At first tender romantic blush, it's a strategy RPG -- but it turns out you can propagate your heroic DNA with the game's heroines to...
For where there is Chocobo, evil dares not tread. The prophecy foretells of a time when the yellow-crested harbingers of Instrumentality will stride forth as heralds of joy across the marshes and mountains as a ray of beauty ...
Atlus launched a Web site today for the upcoming PS2 strategy RPG Growlanser: Heritage of War. The Web site's got tons of goodies up there, wallpapers and avatars and other digital swag. Speaking of goodies, if you like them ...
I'm developing this great idea for a dramatic sitcom based around the Take-Two offices. It will feature tense courtroom scenes as executives get caught backdating stock options and falsifying records against the dramatic back...
You know what karma is; it's that concept by which if you live a good life, you're reborn as a golden cow, and if you're bad, you're liable to spend your next incarnation trapped in the body of a hideous predatory mantis who ...
How do I love thee, Destructoid? If you count the number of images in this brand-new gallery of Eternal Sonata screens that I painstakingly converted to JPGs and uploaded just for you, you might have a fraction of an idea of ...
As you've probably seen, Lewzr's recent clogpost, much like a lucky crane game toy, was plucked from the crowd and deemed by the fickle whim of fate to be worthy of frontpage note, leaving the other two-dollar polyester toys ...
I pretend I'm rational, pragmatic, unsentimental. I deal with the issues, man, the core of our intellectual relationship with games, the subtle layers of gamer psychology. And I feign androgyny; my gender has no place in my ...
A recent FileFront editorial treats a topic near and dear to all our hearts -- boobs in video games. However, even though the article's author identifies himself as "someone who enjoys eye candy as much as the next man,&...
Quite often these days, we hear it said that “nobody wants to play 60-hour RPGs anymore.” Many of us even say as much ourselves, especially as an entire generation ages and finds itself with less time to pour in...
I've never seen Lair demoed anywhere. My parole officer doesn't like me going out much, especially near childrens' schools. I know that people scrutinize any new developments on the Lair front, though, to see if i...
Few more official Devil May Cry 4 screens for us today, via the Japanese site. These are new characters, and it looks like they're part of Nero's end of things somehow. Since info about this game skulks out of secrecy...
At the Tokyo PlayStation Premier event in Tokyo, Konami unveiled what seems to be an expansion pack for PSP's Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. It'll offer new playable characters, new multiplayer stages and game mode...
It finally happened; we took back the hood.Grove Street was on the up-and-up now, we rollin' high-style in the mansion with the fancy cars, cuttin' rap albums and livin' da life of a go-getta. CJ looked pimpin'...
Oh, Sony, why must you toy with us?Let's have a recap of today's rollercoaster, shall we? First David Reeves of Sony Europe let slip that our somewhat-relieving price drop on the 60 GB PS3 was more like a liquidation ...
Apparently, Sony Computer Entertainment of America has reacted with a bemused "WTF?" to David Reeves of Sony Europe's assertion that the 60GB PS3 is being liquidated, chalking it up to misinterpretation. A rep f...
Sony Computer Entertainment of Australia says there are no plans for a PS3 price reduction for the Aussie folks right now. Holy crap, I had no idea those dudes were paying $999, but there it is, and there it'll stay, app...
In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, SCEE President David Reeves let us in on the truth behind the 60GB PS3's price drop -- apparently, the 60GBs are getting the markdown in America because Sony's going to stop sel...
Those of you following our E3 coverage have already heard about Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime's less-than-impressive showing at the Wii Fit demonstration. He tried the route of denial by claiming "heavy clothin...
I've been being a surly gal the past couple days, pouting stiffly at all the preview hysteria and the barrage of announcements out of E3. That's mostly because I'm jealous I'm stuck here in New York with no ai...
