Gamer's Rhapsody will gather music and games on November 15-16

I have previously expressed that we, the Destructoid community, need to find a new meetup to replace PAX, since PAX is too big to handle now. Maybe Gamer's Rhapsody can be a contender. Probably not for this year, but maybe in...

Whoa! Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is pretty fun photo
Whoa! Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is pretty fun
by Steven Hansen

Look, you can't blame me for turning a blind eye to Final Fantasy Type-0. Why hurt and labor and want over something you can't have? At least not a videogame, of which there are alternates and substitutes plenty.

Elliot Gay knew what was up. He played it on PSP. He sought out the unlikely HD remake, which we are somehow getting in the United States of America next spring, and played it at TGS.

What Square brought to Paris Games Week was a similar demo. Three playable characters partied up, a large area to run through. I'm just here to tell you what Elliot already knew. This game is pretty cool. Maybe Final Fantasy XV could be good.

I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo photo
I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo
by Steven Hansen

Usually seeing a demo you played just a month ago means there isn't too much more to wring out. This is not the case with Bloodborne.

The Tokyo Game Show demo bested me. That same demo was playable today at Paris Games Week. Its stations were behind me when I was playing The Order for the first time. The two rectangle setups shared a side. The Order's demo area was strewn about with rope, like cartoonish, espiga colored rope. Fake ammunition belts and singular rounds were glued to the table and up against some walls were crates with weapon replicas.

The Bloodborne area was threaded with leaves and one large angel statue with bleeding eyes. These are opposite games, positioned opposite each other. After playing The Order, I turned about, more excited to try and get through a Bloodborne level I had already played.

The Order: 1886 sure is, uh, cinematic photo
The Order: 1886 sure is, uh, cinematic
by Steven Hansen

I finally played The Order: 1886, Ready at Dawn's upcoming PS4, monster-filled, alternate-London-history third-person shooter here at Paris Games Week.

I still really want to like it. I like a lot of things about it. Well, mainly its aesthetic, both the technical marvel and the filmic look. But I was kind of bored playing the game. Maybe it didn't help I lacked story context, starting somewhere a few chapters in. There was no emotional manipulation for me to care about our squad making our way to one of our members who had been pinned downed, a feat I only realized we were doing after I did it.

And I felt no tinge of sadness for the other squad member that dies--good ole What'shisname--after a little scene where you drag his bleeding-out-body into cover, firing a pistol at a few swarms of enemies on the roof.

Get nostalgic for Portland Retro Gaming Expo with these lovely photos photo
Get nostalgic for Portland Retro Gaming Expo with these lovely photos
by Max Scoville

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, perhaps you attended the fifth annual Portland Retro Gaming Expo which took place the weekend before last. If you didn't, well -- here's a lovely pile of photos that the talented Geoffrey Smith II was kind enough to take for us at this celebration of gaming from the days of yore, featuring cosplayers, special guests, and lots of games that require you to insert coins and/or blow on them to make them work.

Join Destructoid at EGX London!

Alright, guv'nor? EGX London starts this Thursday and Dtoid Europe wants you to join us. In keeping with recent years, the convention is going to be held at Earl's Court One and hopefully you have your tickets already because it's all but sold out. Don't worry if that's the case, though; there's plenty organised throughout the weekend to keep you occupied.

Here's our Dragon Con 2014 cosplay gallery

I doubt I'll ever attend Dragon Con, what with my inability to be in two places at once and PAX falling on the same weekend, but the cosplay photos and videos are always a treat. We were on the scene for another photo round-up. My favorites are Elsa with a lightsaber, the Bob's Burgers family, Dale & Tucker vs. Evil, blue Link, disco-ball Samus, and of course Groot.
